Today's Musicians Have All Lost Their Damn Minds

Rick Ross Omarion.jpg
Rick Ross -- who I will discuss in the fewest sentences possible because I find this entire thing abhorrent -- decided to be an idiot and rap about putting Molly in his date's drink and taking her home to "enjoy it" without her even knowing it. I know, gross.

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.

the degree and intensity of the adulation heaped on pop stars these days causes a sort of morbid obesity of the ego, a usually toxic condition.

You really think it was all hunky dory in the "golden ages?" Prominent rockers and pop icons have been wasting their lives through drug/alcohol abuse since the 60s and you want to gripe about what is essentially gossip-rag fodder? *smh*

The Rick Ross shenanigans dreaming disgust me. Shame on all those men.

The problem is you're confusing rappers (and Bieber) with musicians.

I wait with glee to see these tattooed millionaires lose EVERYTHING over their antics. Actions have consequences and fame has such a short shelf life. Today's Bieber is tomorrow's Danny Bonaduce.

It figures, these pop culture musicians are already popular which makes them attention whores in the music industry.

Uhm... it's called track/album sales. They sure as hell can't do it on their own so they make up some drama.

The Biebs also allegedly attacked his neighbor, and had some troubling comments on abortion.

Does Rick Ross have to lift up his tits when he gets tattooed on his chest? 

And yes, they have lost their damn minds.
