Midnite Musicology: Katy Perry, Niggas In Paradise

Submitted by: Fancys_Asst 4 years ago Entertainment

It"s the Radio 1 performance that everyone is up in arms about... I guess because she drops the N-bomb in it.

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.

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.

I think the only people that would complain about this are old white activists.

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!!!

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

who cares what she says, these asshats call each other ni*ger all the time. Either stop it or stop complaining about it.

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 listened all the way thru this piece of crap "song" and didn`t even catch the big moment.
Don`t even know why I bothered...

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.

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.

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.

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. =^.^=

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

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

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.

"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.
Etc.

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.

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 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.
