Media Questions Of The Week


1. Why are people still talking about Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards when the real offense was Madonna’s horrid self-serving speech where she said she knew Michael Jackson had a problem when their date failed?

2. Why did Jay-Z tell Oprah that his generation were able to co-opt the N word because “We turned a word that was very ugly and hurtful and turned into a term of endearment?” How does that work when Latinos, Asian, whites and everyone uses the word because they heard him say it?

3. Was Common trying to wish something into the universe when he said that hip-hop was having the Obama effect and changing into more positive music? And if he had to say this it would’ve been better without the Hennessy sign in the backdrop.
