Oh man the Grammy's were tonight? I think I've missed them every year for the past 5 or 6 years. Pretty depressing.

I haven't missed the Oscars yet though have I? I actually manage to catch those sometimes...

The Grammys are a joke. The fact that a song with these lyrics:
But man I ain't never seen an ass like hers
That ***** in my mouth had me lost for words
Told her to back it up like berp berp
And make that ass jump like jerp jerp
could be nominated for anything, especially when you consider all of the music out there with actual lyrics that have some thought and meaning put into them that will never be nominated for anything, is just pathetic and depressing and perhaps a sign of how bad the music industry has become.

Its actually "I told her back it up like, Erp Erp" you know.. like the sound a truck makes when backing up?

Rap/Hip Hop does have a lot of meaning behind it. A lot of people who are incapable of reading between the lines just look at the image of the whole genre and say its evil. It's all just a fun way of expressing deeper emotions. So what if the grammar isnt correct. You going to correct shakespeare?

Yeah, it's about oral sex. Whole lotta meaning behind that one :rolleyes:
This translation (http://www.slangcity.com/songs/lollipop.htm) of the lyrics is hilarious though.

In any case this isn't setting a precedent. Nine Inch Nails won a Grammy in 1993 for Wish which features a very rude phrase along the same lines :eek: :D

Oh, my bad, "Erp, Erp" makes the song so much more insightful than "Berp, Berp" :rolleyes:

The grammar in Shakespeare was accurate for his time, and regardless, if Shakespeare was writing entire plays about getting BJs, busting caps in cops asses, his bitches and hos, Escalades with chrome spinners and all the drugs he's done, then I would have no respect for him just like I have no respect for these rappers.

Well apparently rap's popularity is waning except for a few notable exceptions, and nobody can figure out why rap album sales are so badly hit. I guess it could be the poor quality, or perhaps some of the lyrics make no sense!!


Anyway.....I've been listening to The Clipse's new album for awhile, and if you actually do listen to the lyrics, they're usually a bit more clever.

Flippant comments are sometimes rooted in hard truth. Unfortunately women are often "valued" like that and it is BS when you get right down to it. How hot she is bears no relevance to deserving not to be abused.

But I do of course know what you mean. Just playing devil's advocate or something.

I studied Shakespeare, and yup, Shakes (died AD 1616) did write about hos, stabbing each other, wife beating, flash gear, sleeping around, getting high (at least one entire play about this), fighting over women, ratting out each other, namby boys, etc.

Chaucer (died 1400AD) wrote about french-kissing arseholes in 'The Millers Tale'. BTW this is a standard text for 16 year old schoolkids to study in UK schools.

Apuleius wrote 'The Golden Ass' in about AD200 - the only surviving novel in Latin from Roman times. It's about a bloke who turns into a donkey and has sex with various women, in rather explict detail.

Compared to that, 'Back it up like Erp! Erp!' is in good company.

This (http://www.slangcity.com/songs/lollipop.htm) translation of the lyrics is hilarious though.

That did actually help me to understand the song. I have translations of Chaucer and Shakespeare just like that, and no doubt, some of Shakes' own countrymen were just as baffled. Some of his grammar was highly unorthodox for his time - he invented phrases like 'in the mind's eye' which we easily understand now, but might not have been so clear to his audience.

And when I'm at the bottom
She Hillary Rodham
Middle of the bed

I'm not American and without a glossary that's just as baffling to me as one of Shakes' more obscure crappy lines (yes he wrote a lot of tedious rubbish too).

The Grammy's is just a mega event to advertise those songs. Unlike when artist had to sell to consumers, everybody who puts a song on the market gets and award of some kind for it in todays market.

Feb 9, 2009, 06:15 PM
What makes this ridiculous? There is an award ceremony of some kind on every time you turn on the television. MTV Video Music awards, there is something on VH1, The Grammy's, Detroit Music Awards , Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards.

In the reflection of that evidence that hardly leaves my comment under the spectrum of "ridiculous". I can remember when I was a kid there was one. One that was given any type of publicity anyway, that was the Grammy's. If there was any more it just never made national media coverage. Everyone knew if you won a grammy the artist got a big bump in sales on their albums. Now there are so many award shows and everybody just about boast to having some kind of award.

The Media has grown and the market has changed. Maybe ten years ago I knew a rap group from Boston Mass (don't remember their names but they sucked anyway) they were traveling the world doing interview after interview over some lousy album that was in every strawberries store.(Direct Market) I doubt they could speak well enough to order coffee ant a Dunkin Dounuts. The industry carried them until that years Grammys or MTV Music awards (I forget which but that isn't the point) They were nominated for an award, probably new artist or most original. So they got their names mentioned on the big award show. No one cared, poof, they were gone.

They knew they were riding the direct market industry and never had to sell one copy of their album to a consumer. They just thought the ride would last longer. It is ridiculous, but my statement wasn't. I knew what I was talking about.

I think anyone who'd smack their girlfriend around deserves prison and I hope he meets a 7ft HIV positive rapist on a life sentence in the showers who thinks he's pretty.

It was in a paper the other day that Chris Brown had being flirting with Leona Lewis and him and Rhiana had an argument about this but if you look closely at leona lewis when sober, you'll see there's nothing in the world that would make a girl as attractive as Rhiana jealous. Infact she makes me feel physically sick by comparison.

But I was surprised by some of the news today. When I first heard about this case (and I don't pay a lot of attention to it, although I like the music both of them, particularly Chris Brown, make) I figured he might have lost his temper and smacked her. But today's allegations seem to be of more of an extended ****-kicking fest.

I think Chris Brown is a complete piece of ***** and if there is any justice left this should by all rights destroy his career and future prospects. It was an all out thorough beating, not even a quick loss of temper. (not that that is ok either) He has serious anger issues but mostly I think he's just a piece of *****.

He also deserves a wreckless driving ticket. He did most of this while swerving his car around. He could have killed somebody on the road because he couldn't control his temper. Psycho.

I think its disgusting how she could go back with him or how her family could let her go back to him. :mad:

I think she's a fool but I can't say I haven't been a fool before too. She is young and she has to learn on her own terms that the true essence of a person seldom changes.

Wow, that's really brutal. :eek:

When it was reported, I figured it was a punch or 2, possibly a slap, not an all-out beating. However, she took him back, so she's also an idiot. Sorry, but she had her chance to get a restraining order against him, and with all the support from family, friends, the media, and other music celebrities siding with her and not with Chris Brown, she still chose not to take it. Instead, she's taking him back. His career is hopefully over. What other celebrity wants to be associated with this guy now?

Her family, agent, and lawyers really should have told her to smarten up. :rolleyes: Even on her orders, I don't know why the lawyers announced that she still wants contact with Brown. It's a completely business relationship, but set her straight. Look at her photos. :o

And apparently, she has been abused for months, people knew this, and didn't say anything. Also, her father says he's 100% behind her going back to him if it makes him happy. I'm sorry, but despite the fact that his daughter is an adult who can do as she pleases, I'd never be able to tell the media that I approve of this.

No wonder why Chris Brown says he really loves her and wants her to take him back. He likes to punch his girlfriends, and she has basically sent the message to him that this is a forgiveable act.

We'll see her bruised face again on the news soon enough.

R&B singer admits Rihanna assault

R&B singer Chris Brown has pleaded guilty in the US to one count of assault on his former girlfriend, pop star Rihanna.

Brown, 19, was sentenced to five years' probation and ordered to do six months of community service.

Brown had faced charges of assaulting Rihanna, 21, during a row in February.

The last-minute plea deal came before a hearing at a Los Angeles court at which Rihanna was due to give evidence. She said the sentence was "fair".

Brown had been facing a potential jail sentence of four years.

His sentence involves five years of supervised probation and six months of community labour, such as picking up litter or removing graffiti.

He will also have to attend courses on domestic violence. BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/8114049.stm).
