Rapper CeeLo Green has hit out at Meghan Thee Stallion, Cardi b and Nicki Minaj for the ‘shameless’ way they portray themselves both in music and as celebrities. He was interviewed by Far Out magazine and stated:
‘A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level.
‘There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery.’
The F*** You hitmaker did not hold back as he continued to slam them for their sexual expression going so far as to call them desperate.
CeeLo explained: ‘It’s problematic, we suffer from it because there are those that have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. You have the ‘Heads of State,’ like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.
‘Attention is also a drug and competition is around…Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all, [but] it comes at what cost?
Hmm, it seem CeeLo Green has forgotten that he is not actually squeaky clean when it comes to women and how they are portrayed. As usual, the internet has kindly reminded him.
Is Ceelo Green Forgetful…?
Twitter has kindly reminded him of quotes and lyrics in his music that portrayed women in an unfavourably bad light.
Ceelo Green: It isn’t rape if the victim is unconscious.
Even Philip Lewis, the editor of Huffington post had something to say to CeeLo:
‘If CeeLo has never had anything about “adult content” coming from male rappers, then this is just sexism’
Meghan Hits Back
Meghan Thee Stallion hit back at Ceelo Green with a Sailor Moon Meme On Instagram. The star said on Twitter:
‘Lol dudes will scream “slob on my k***” word for word and crying abt WAP [laughing while crying emoji] bye lil boy.’
Slob On My K*** is a 1999 song by Three 6 Mafia about receiving oral sex from a male perspective.
Megan and Cardi recently released a duet song entitled WAP (Wet Ass P*ssy). The song reached No. 1 on the US iTunes chart last Friday and contains provocative lyrics that center on sexual female empowerment with some very rude innuendos for sex. This, of course resulted in a strong reaction from fans and haters alike.
In the video, they were joined by cameos from singer Normani and celebrity Kylie Jenner. The rappers were dresses in a variety of barely-there outfits sending viewers into meltdown.
It has only been five days since the world premiere but the music video has already amassed over 71million views on YouTube.
It seems CeeLo has forgotten the below quote:
“When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back to you.”
Even Jesus had a version of this wisdom: “Don’t focus on the speck in your brother’s eye while ignoring the log in your own eye.”
