The world is up in arms over the newest song “WAP” from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. These two rappers are all about bodily autonomy and women doing what makes them happy. So naturally, that makes the menfolk maaaaaad.
“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.”
“It’s problematic, we suffer from it because there are those that have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. “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. It comes at what cost?
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.”
This has the internet pulling up receipts, namely his past accusations of sexual assault:
Cee-Lo was previously accused of sexual assault in 2014, a case that went to a no contest. He subsequently sent out tweets in defense of himself like “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent. People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” he tweeted in a second comment.
He later sent out an apology that said:
“Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context.
I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it..
…was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.”
Now in present day, his Cardi/Meg comments are getting him rightfully roasted to high hell .
Hit the flip and see…
“CeeLo: goodness gracious, women rapping about sex? is this appropriate?? could this harm society?? let’s be responsible adults.
It looks like CeeLo stands behind what he said. He posted a meme on Instagram that read;
“I don’t want approval from nobody but God and the bank.”
“#Facts”, he added in the caption.
CeeLo also added in another post;
“So, from now on my new goal each day is to ignore anyone and anything that can possibly get me out of character.”
Mmmmkay Mr. Green.
“CeeLo Green is a sex offender. Are we really going to listen to his opinion on women? Pls gtf outta here”
“Havent heard of ceelo since he went to the grammys dressed like this”
“CeeLo: “A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level.”
CeeLo also: It isn’t rape if the victim is unconscious.”
“I have said VERY little about CeeLo since working for him years ago (except my statement in my book about leaving after his allegations). But this mess takes the cake. Boy, if you don’t get back into your glass house, surround yourself with stone-deflecting pillows and hush up…”
“If CeeLo has never had anything about “adult content” coming from male rappers, then this is just sexism”
