Nicki’s Anaconda

Posted in Music, Society on September 3rd, 2014

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj may well be the current reigning queen of inappropriate and shocking songs. Certainly she must hold that title among female Hip-Hip performers.

Nicki Minaj’s single, “Anaconda” off her upcoming album, The Pinkprint is most definitely shocking and inappropriate for so very many reasons.

The glorification or, at least, normalization of drug use and trafficking, violence, gold-digging to point of prostitution, promiscuity, and just about every other societal problem within the “Black Community” are present in an in your face manner in “Anaconda.”

My Anaconda Don’t Want None Unless You Got Buns, Hun

That all being said however, Nicki Minaj’s latest single is not utterly loathsome, nor is it without its positive side. Firstly, and less importantly, the song and video reversed the normal sexual dynamic, with Nicki being the “playa” in control. Secondly, and much more importantly, it rocked the current body-image world with its lyrics.

Even more than the refrain, “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, ,” The last part of “Anaconda” really set some females’ teeth on edge.

Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, where my fat ass big bitches in the club?
Fuck those skinny bitches, fuck those skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club
Fuck you if you skinny bitches WHAT?

I got a big fat ass
Come on

I’m good with that! And I’ve got to say that, while I wouldn’t claim to utterly not want a skinny girl with little to no curves and ass, I do have a strong preference for ones with buns, Hun :-P

They Got Buns

Oh yeah! The “skinny bitches” got all bent out shape over this. They really didn’t like it at all when someone, especially a prominent pop-star like Nick Minaj, seemingly devalued them in the same manner as they and the multi-billion dollar weight-loss and fashion cartels have devalued curvy women for decades. It’s “Skinny Shaming” as far as they’re suddenly concerned. Seems to me that turnabout is fair play.

What these females and those industries and politicians who enable and profiteer from them forget is that the arc of the beautiful universe is long, but it bends towards curves. ;-)

Disney’s Rebel Princess

Posted in Humor, Movies, Music, Society on August 19th, 2014

Certainly, you don’t have to enjoy Disney’s Frozen. You do, however, have to face the fact that Elsa is Disney’s rebel princess…and in more ways than just her sexuality.

Elsa of Arendelle – Disney’s Rebel Princess

Whether is saying, “Fuck It All” to her final exams or “Let ‘Em Burn” about people who’ve hurt her or held her down, Elsa is most definitely a rebel through and through.

Three From Korr-A

Posted in Music on June 26th, 2014

So…Here’s three interesting and, I hope, entertaining electronic / pop / quasi-hip-hop music videos from Korr-A aka Kristina Korban.

If you like Korr-A’s work, you can get her music from iTunes or Amazon, depending upon your preferred device and format.

Actually, not only was discovering Korr-A pleasant, it was serendipitous. I only discovered this woman’s music due to a “pop under” advertisement that came up while web surfing for my recent post on Ukraine’s talent for stupidity. And yes! Korr-A aka Kristina Korban was born in Kiev, UA.
