Today's Musicians Have All Lost Their Damn Minds
People got pissed, pushed Reebok to drop him as brand ambassador (which they did), and expected him to apologize. He didn't initially, saying that the lyrics were misinterpreted. He's finally issued an apology, and it's here if you want to read it, but I stand by my idiot comment.
Where it gets even more mind-numbing is the part where Slim Thug, Meek Mill and Rocko step in to defend Ross, because why not jump on that ill-fated bandwagon?
Rocko, for his part, threw shade at Reebok for dropping Ross, stating that Ross changed the face of the brand because (ahem) prior to Ross's campaign, wearing Reebok was equivalent to a cardinal sin. Yes, Rocko, wearing Reeboks -- not raping women while they're passed out because you drugged their champagne -- is the cardinal sin in this equation.
Meek Mill went a step further, calling Reebok "corny" and dragging Biggie Smalls into this mess, saying that at least Ross hadn't rapped about how he was raping kids and throwing them over the bridge, which he incorrectly attributed as lyrics from Notorious B.I.G.'s song, "What's Beef". I'm not even sure what to say about that.
Oh, and Slim Thug -- who otherwise has nothing to do with Rick Ross's crew or song -- said that the "haters won" while making his own asinine comments about women on Molly on Twitter, which he's since taken down.
So yeah. Things have gotten strange, if I do say so myself.
You've got Bieber abandoning his monkey, rocking Skrillex hair, and trying to tarnish poor Anne Frank with the label of "belieber." You've got Ray J trying to cover his ass about his pathetic attempt at relevance, and you've got Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Slim Thug, and Rocko all basically condoning rape lyrics. I'm slow-clapping the shit out of this.
And when you consider those antics, and you throw into the mix things like Miley Cyrus's unicorn twerking and broomstick-sized blunts, and LL Cool J and Brad Paisley's "Accidental Racist" debacle, and Psy's new single, this month has all been one huge mess of musicians losing their minds.
