Watch this; the hilarity in entertainers pulling publicity stunts is that, these are human beings who, for whatever reason, decided that they want more publicity than the “average” person. Thus, whatever stunt they can do that will get them attention, & hopefully monetary reciprocity, is performed. God-delivered talent, or hard-hustled grandiose illusion, it’s all to get your attention. Any subsequent “stunt” is open to the imagination of the actor. (If you smell my cologne.)
Now, as y’all know, last week I came back from the future & brought Twitter with me. At some point after that, there was a rumor (started on Twitter) that Nicki Minaj & Drake had tied the knot. I really didn’t think much of it because A) I could not possibly care less, & B) she’s around “accidental pregnancy” age, whether her ass is fake or not. (Not that I care, I’m still going to look, but I’m just saying.) What I mean is, even though Drake looks to be a well preserved, older White-ish gentlemen, he’s not even 30 years old yet. By the time I was his age, I had 2 kids! I’m sure if he sneezes too hard near an open cut on her body, Nicki Minaj will be with seed. Because that’s how life works. Simple & plain, I just assumed he knocked her up, on some “best I ever had!” type hype, & didn’t want to be as much like Lil Wayne as he once thought. Makes sense to me, but then again, what do I know? Actually, I know a lot, but that’s neither here nor there.
Within a matter of what seemed like only hours, it was “press released” that it was just a hoax, & at that point, I truly stopped caring. It was truly a waste of time, & that’s not to say that most things in life aren’t, but certain ones have a place. This specific incident would’ve been better laid out for a ‘tweenage melodrama straght-to-dvd movie, starring
a bunch of unknown rappers & producers instead of werewolves & vampires. Ugh. Point is, I’m sure they don’t know how much of a golden opportuntiy they let slip through their sweaty, pink little palms.
Why go, if you’re not going to go hard? Man, they should’ve let that gossip ride out to the end of the year, at least, & use that fuel for shows & things of that nature. At the end of the day, no one’s life changes around what celebrities do or don’t do, & what’s Professional Entertainment without embellishment, if only just a little? Rap music is based around that ethos, whether we like it or not. Like, “keep it real” was only a genuine phrase for about a year & a half, before it got infiltrated by mainstream douchstopia. After that, it quickly became the anti of itself, like niggas who sell dope throwing up peace signs at their friends.
Anywho, I just wish they would’ve taken that rumor to where it could’ve went (without hurting anyone, of course), before they puss-ed out & said “sike!” We don’t see much of that Hip Hop matrimony
bullshit these days. In fact, the last one that comes to mind was Treach & Pepa (or Salt; they all look alike to me), & he used to beat the shit out of her for no reason. Not for nothing, but Lil Kim going mega-Barbie bitch on them, as a married couple wouldve been awesome.
