Paris Hilton recently said that she had moved on from her bad girl party image of her 20s and is now focused on expanding her brand as one of the most influential young businesswomen in the world. So here’s the teaser video for her new single, “Good Time,” which is about getting fucked up and having sex with Lil Wayne or something like that. It’s hard to tell what she’s singing about because her voice has been autotuned to make her sound like a toddler. Whatever, American kids are idiots, so this will probably debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and result in Miley Cyrus taking it as a challenge and calling her next album, “Party Dildos.”
Lil Wayne was in New Orleans over the weekend to film the video for his new single, “God Bless Amerika”, and you already know it’s a controversial and edgy song because he misspelled America. The video opens with Weezy standing in front of a giant American flag, because that is super creative and original, but it is quickly dropped to the ground to reveal the poor and forgotten people of New Orleans (I assume that’s part of the point of the song). And then the rapper walked all over the flag.
A lot of people are going to be outraged over this, and I’m sure Lil Wayne will eventually offer some sort of apology. Maybe he can do it in front of a bank after he checks in on his millions of dollars so he can shout, “American is just the worst, you guys!” He should bring the people from his video, too.
Back in February, rapper Lil Wayne, AKA Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., made an appearance on Future’s song, “Karate Chop” – heard here with excellent Twerking visual – and he pissed a lot of people off when he included this line: “Pop a lot of pain pills, ’bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels … beat that pussy up like Emmett Till.”
Till was a black teenager who was beaten and shot to death in Mississippi in 1955, after he was accused of flirting with a white girl. Naturally, Till’s family didn’t take to kindly to his horrible death being compared to a violent sex act, so they complained and Weezy sent them a letter swearing that he will never again perform the verse in live performances. But he never actually said, “I’m sorry”, and the Till family is still pissed.
Perhaps as a punishment, they could make Lil Wayne live in Mississippi. Or even worse, listen to his own music.
Lil Wayne had a concert in St. Louis last night, and like most rap stars covered in dreds and tatts, after the show he went to a skate park.
“The Lou was good but I busted my fuggin head at the sk8park! 9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people.”
That was on his twitter about 4 hours ago. Earlier this month, he was at the Skatepark of Tampa until about 5am after a concert, so I guess he does this kind of thing a lot. Which kind of makes sense because rappers and skaters both really love weed. You’d think they’d be best friends. That blunt is color blind, my brothers.
OK GO - has made another video for ‘This Too Shall Pass’, this one built around a Rube Goldberg machine that took 4 months to build. It’s a panoply of complex triggers and engineering. In related news, I learned the word “panoply” yesterday. (billboard)
BLANKET JACKSON - was almost murdered! (not really!) by Jermaine Jacksons 13yo old son who wanted to test out a new stun gun. The Jackson family is denying this report, saying no children were ever in danger. Their denial sounds convincing, perhaps because they’ve been practicing that same one for 45 years now. (tmz and the ap)
LIL WAYNE - is the latest victim of over-criminalization, but he got a brief reprieve from his prison sentence yesterday and spent the night on stage in NYC with Jay Z. His reign of terror of blatantly standing near things will end later today when he turns himself over to the NKVD I mean American government. (rolling stone)
NAOMI CAMPBELL - will not be arrested after a limo driver reported that she punched him in the back of the head. This is at least the fifth time charges have been brought against her for assault. I say we give more time for sanctions to work. (the ap)
Lil Wayne will turn himself in to police sometime today to begin his one year prison sentence after being convicted of a shocking crime spree that began three years ago. (WARNING: the following summary from MTV contains graphic details.)
In 2007, Lil Wayne was arrested for gun possession following his first headlining performance in Manhattan at the Beacon Theater.
Police did not find a weapon on the rapper when his tour bus was searched. Rather, the gun — registered to his manager — was in a bag located near the rapper.
Fantastic. The government is locking up a respected artist with no history of violence for an entire year because he was close to a legally registered gun. Awesome. This country really sucks lately. We used to be so cool. What the hell happened to us? Now we have 8 billion laws because 5 percent of the population are either dickheads or can’t get their shit together. Lil Wayne broke a law which is only a law because they made it a law. He didn’t hurt anyone, he didn’t steal anything, he didn’t rob anyone, and he never has, he just broke the rule that our shitty busy-body government made up because someone else did those things. And we have thousands of stupid laws like that. My car is covered with bright yellow stickers because my baby could be killed if I attach the safety seat wrong. Except I don’t have a baby. I hate babies. If I did have a baby and we were going on a car ride I would tie it to the bumper regardless of how the stickers felt about it. I’m not part of this. I’m not the problem, so why am I being treated like I am? Jesus Fucking Christ. It’s times like this I’m glad girls can at least still take naked pictures of themselves and then email them, because knowing that gives me hope. Hint, hint ladies.
