Media Questions Of The Week


1. How come Erykah Badu’s explanation for her video with the Flaming Lips sounds so much like Mary J. Blige’s explanation for the Burger King commercial?

2. How come it’s Ok for people like Gwyneth Paltrow to use the ‘N’ word freely, regardless of a song title, but you never hear any other racial epithet like kike, chink, sand-ni**ger etc. used just as liberally in American culture?


3. Even if Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” is not “real hip-hop” is Hot97 playing the “real hip-hop” that they say Nicki Minaj is lacking?
