    Link: Midnite Musicology: Katy Perry, Niggas In Paradise - It`s the Radio 1 performance that everyone is up in arms about... I guess because she drops the N-bomb in it.

    If Jay Z can say it, so can Katy Perry. Free speech mothadratazzzz. Also, maybe I`m not good at understanding "rap" talk, but I didn`t hear her drop an N bomb.

    So it`s all of a sudden wrong for Katy Perry to say "Ninjas" twice?

    Actually, if she did say "Niggas", so what.

    Stop giving the word power, people.

    "If JayZ can say it so can Katy Perry"

    Nobody is saying it`s illegal. The argument is entirely: Do we now believe she is a racist because she used the word.

    Nobody believes JayZ is a racist, and will stop supporting him.
    Some people will think Katy is and stop supporting her.
    Many people think Michael Richards was and stopped supporting him.

    Unless you`re arguing we MUST support all people equally irrespective of if we think they`re a disingenuous xenophobic douchebag, I don`t see your point.

    We know they can say it. Free country.
    We don`t have to buy their stuff, or sponsor, or book them. Free country.

    It`s not even a black/white thing. Katy will bounce back from this. Richards lost his career. Katy seems racist to some overly sensitive. Richards seemed racist to everybody.

    I love how people are saying she can`t rap, yet she sounded just as good as Jay-Z. This is just proving that rapping outside of improvisation and battling is a zero-talent art.

    I like that nobody mentions that they got the title wrong. But maybe it`s just because this song blows.

    She`s retarded. And I don`t mean because of her use of the "N" word.

    I don`t know much about Katy Perry`s personality, except from what I`ve seen in a few interviews. In those, she came across as unusually nice and sensitive to others` feelings. Like other commentators, the word I heard was "ninjas." Unless I`m missing something, accusing Perry of racism for this performance is absurd.

    Oh, and by the way: She named her cat Kitty Purry. =^.^=

    You know what? It`s just a word. And, she didn`t even say it. The people that get all up in arms about it`s use are SOME black people and some leftist political correctness advocates (better known as douchbags). Oops, sorry. Didn`t mean to offend. The same thing goes for the words "faggot", "spic", "raghead", "chink", whatever. For Christ`s sake people drop this crap. Political correctness is what`s blowing this crap out of proportion.

    She`s covering a song that has the word "Nigga`s" in it so even if she had of decided not to censor it she still wouldn`t have been doing anything wrong.

    If black people would stop using this word it would for the most part die out.

    The word is kept alive because black people insist on usint it. Then blame white people for it. If they`d drop it, just let it die, it would be as forggoten as other slur phrases used to referance them `back in the day`.

    I doubt most teens today know what the words `sambo`, `jigaboo`, or `piccaninni` mean. Which is good because they`ve died out. Either stop using `n*gger` or stop getting pissy when others do, can`t have it both ways.

    No way will it ever die out - some people want to pull a certain card out of the deck when it`s convenient. It`ll keep going. Prolly get banned for this one.

    I agree with some other people here. I listened through the whole thing against my better judgement and never heard an N bomb. I did hear her say Ninja a couple times though

    So..... just like everyone else, I suffered through the whole thing waiting for it to pay off and it never did. I heard her say "Ninja" and that`s about it. Regardless of that, if she (or anyone) wants to cover a song with the word "n*gga" in it then who gives a f*ck?! I`ve heard plenty of black rappers refer to white people as "honky" or "cracker" in their lyrics and no one cries out racism when they hear that so f*ck `em!!!

    She`s lucky she`s one of the most beautiful women on earth (and perhaps the most dratable when you take her personality into accounty), because that was the "whitest" drating thing i`ve ever seen. It almost makes me embarassed to say I`m white too! Almost.

    She`s "one of the most beautiful women on earth?" !? There is absolutely no way. I don`t know who is, but Sofia Vergara, Carmen Elektra (circa 2000), and Christine Hendricks (sp?) are infinitely hotter than Katy Perry.
