"This Country Is Still Built On Racism"

Even Talib Kweli is, like, damn, that’s a cold-ass honky

Appearing this week on Vlad TV (aka “the TMZ of hip hop”), the Brooklyn-born rapper was asked about white privilege in hip hop. Specifically, how being Caucasian can help some artists, like Mac Miller, make it to #1 on the charts. Kweli gave he honest (and true) assessment:

“I agree with that. This country is still based on racism. That will never change unless we tear it down and start over. White privilege is a real thing. And especially white male privilege. I have male privilege as a black male. But I don’t have white male privilege.” Keep reading »

“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? Nobody stops them and says ‘Would you stop swearing… for the children, please?’ … I don’t want children cursing. I’m very strict on my nieces and my little brother. They have to listen to clean versions of music. Even my music. … Don’t you think it’s strange, though? I used to see Eminem in concert and people were bringing their little brother or whatever. Nobody stops them and says [she adopts a posh English accent], ‘Would you stop swearing, Eminem, for loads of money?’ I don’t get it, I don’t get it.” 

– Nicki Minaj did a great interview with the UK Guardian and talked about lots of feminist-y themes, including the scrutiny she’s put under for being a woman who sings some really “dirty” lyrics. Nicki talks about how she knows those two little girls on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — Sophia Grace and Rosie — who rap clean versions of her songs have brought her a lot of attention, but that doesn’t make her kids’ singer. I love this woman. [Guardian UK]

beyonce as queen elizabeth

Lining the walls of the MTV Voices Dinner were a collection of classic portraits reimagined with celebrity faces. Beyonce was cast as Queen Elizabeth I. We should probably expect the neck ruffle to make a comeback any second now. And Eminem wasn’t looking half bad as a decorated nobleman. I’ve always wanted to see him in epithets. Other portraits included Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as a pair of Thomas Gainsborough masterpieces (no Mariah Yeater portrait was to be found), Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. These would be perfect to hang in my salon … if I had one. [MTV]

A sampling of things that make me feel ancient:

  • Wondering if my 10-year high school reunion is coming up and then realizing, Oh s**t, it would have been last year. Wait, was I not invited?!
  • Finding my first gray … pube.
  • Discovering Eminem‘s daugher, Hailie Jade Mathers, is on Twitter and WTF, she’s 15?!?!?!

Eminem Against Cursing In His House

“I’m a parent. I have daughters. I don’t cuss. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person … walking around my house [saying] ‘Bitch, pick this up,’ you know what I mean? Profanity around my house? No. I feel like it’s your job to parent them.”

Eminem‘s songs may be filled with beep-worthy words, but Eminem tells “60 Minutes” that he forbids that kind of language at home for the sake of his 14-year-old daughter. I’m sure the parents of teenagers everywhere are thanking him for putting the words in his songs, then, so that their kids are sure to hear them. [People] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga And Eminem Top The VMA Nominations Tally

Yesterday, MTV announced the nominees for the 2010 Video Music Awards. And good thing Lady Gaga didn’t let anyone steal her creativity out of her vagina, because her over-the-top videos this year brought her a record 13 nominations. (Seriously, the people who’ve come closest are Missy Elliot in 2001 for “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lady Marmalade.” And Beyoncé with nine nominations last year.) Gaga is even competing against herself for Video of the Year—”Bad Romance” and “Telephone” are both nominated. Keep reading »
