  1. what kind of hateful MISOGYNISTIC crap is this?! Sexed up dead women hanging like decorations- When will the music video industry STOP objectifying women- beaten and dead women are eroticized on a daily basis in ads, music videos, films. This is a disgrace.

  6. People hate on Kanye all the time, and he is a huge ass. But I still think he's probably the last innovative mainstream rapper out there.

  7. Love this song.

  8. Guy Bourdin meets George A. Romero... Nicki kills it on her verse--seriously. (I was in the car the first time I heard this remix, and almost got into an accident when her verse came on.) Why are her features always so much hotter than her own songs?

  9. Kanye's one of the most interesting, smartest rappers out there now. (Sorry if he's not nice about it.)

  10. Kanye is so last decade.

  11. Rap as an 'Art' form has ALWAYS been about:

    Celebrating socio-pathic behavior

    EXTREME narcissism

    EXTREME misogyny

    EXTREME homophobia

    EXTREME hate


    Celebrating ignorant 'Life-Style Choices'

  12. @RATBASTARD ... your own ignorance is extreme.

  13. That is fantastic! Although, I'm not sure how they are going to censor this enough for it to get played on television. (Wherever they still play music videos on television.)

    Also, you may need to give a warning to those who go and seek this out. (I found it on Twitter, since the one above was removed.) Because I'm pretty sure somewhere between severed heads and Nicki Minaj giving herself a lap dance, this video is NSFW :)

  14. Lil' Kim>>>Nicki Minaj..."Black Friday" baby!

  15. @Ratbastard

    You mean like every Hollywood movie made in the past 30+ years?

    And for you to make such a blanket statement about all rap music proves you don't know what the fukkk you're talking about. So please, just STFU.

  16. NO, I do know what I'm talking about.

    And yes, a lot of pop culture celebrates the same stuff.

    Sex sells. 'Taboo' sells even better

    Violence sells

    'Bad' attitude sells

    The dark side of human nature sells

  17. I want an answer. Why is this posted on this blog? I just want to know.

  18. Anyone who would like to understand hip hop or rap as a strategy for blacks and other minorities read: “Hip-Hop vs. High Art: Notes on Race as Spectacle,” in Art Journal
    Volume 63, No. 2, Summer 2004: 4-19 by Derek Conrad Murray. Not the definitive piece and not wholly correct but a great starting point to understanding the art form, the form, and the music as a strategy for re-encoding things like wealth and other things traditionally out of reach of many minorities.

  19. I can't believe this is on here. What does this have to do with gay news at all?? This is disgusting & I'm debating whether to ever read Towleroad again.
    Disgusting video. Be a fan if you'd like but he deserves no attention on this site at least.
