In Defense of...Nicki Minaj?

I don't think Nicki Minaj is really my cup of tea in the music world.


She's not. I think she's cute, and I like her attitude, but I'll pass on listening to her. Despite the radio's current obsession with her. Note to you:  I haven't had to listen to the radio until recently.

"Starships" makes no sense to me. Whatever. At all. Remotely. I've stopped the radio and asked the person riding with me "higher than a motherfucker? really? that's all she could come up with?" It just lacks creativity to me and I don't think motherfuckers come off as all that high, anyway.

Well, on that note.

Recently, as in this past weekend, as in yesterday, Nicki was barred from performing at the musical festival Hot Summer Jam. What was the problem? It's a rap festival and yes, Nicki is like, the Katy Perry of rap, but still.

The problem was that she was a "sell out."

Oh bitch say WHAT. Okay, since when does the concept of selling out matter in the world of rap? And also, this is Nicki Minaj. SHE'S NOT TUPAC. She's a dance pop rapper who is likable enough your little sister will download her music from Megaupload. Oh. Wait. That was shut down....

Nonetheless, I just think it was essentially stupid Nicki wasn't allowed to perform. She's a decent rapper (for what she is), she's fun, she's unique. Yeah I kind of feel like this :/ about her musically, but I mean, there are far worse performers out there. LMFAO? Yeah. Them.

Nicki has vowed never to play Hot Summer Jam again. Lauryn Hill and Nas went on for her instead, which I have to say is pretty sweet. But still. Nicki has bigger fish to fry. Higher than a ....

anyway, I have a lot of interviews and reviews to post. Stay tuned?

  1. I like her 50%, and yes, I am one of those people that uses crappy percentage responses.
    For example, she will put out a song that will have an awesome melody for the chorus, but the verses will suck so much it kills it. 50%.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
