So, about that ...

Things that should be vaguely offensive:

Rihanna in blackface,

and Beyonce mimicking 1950s white culture.

And I don't mean that because like, OH NO, A BLACK WOMAN CAN'T CREATE ALLUSIONS TO MARILYN MONROE, but more like, what? Where is this fascination of hers with Bettie Page and and Monroe coming from all of a sudden? I just don't get it.

Or maybe I'm too cracked out to form coherent thoughts. Sleep, come to me! Seriously, I want that.

P.S. I must add that I find it seriously creepy to see Rihanna all dolled up in pleather and BDSM-themed gear, and then see her dressed like Slash a few seconds later. What? You're telling me that Def Jam could call up Travis Barker and have him randomly appear in this video, but not actually have the guitarist featured on the damn song show up? Bad form, people.

  1. Rihanna- you need therapy and clearly singing ain't enough

    Beyonce- not only am i going to ask why you need to mimic white culture from the 50's but why do you need to be a prostitute from the white 1950's? who the fuck fixes there car in booty shorts and thigh-highs? aren't your worried about a run?! sides when you are dressed like that why is no one stopping to help you?

    my tip for you, watch your music videos without sound. if you are wondering what the fuck you are doing (like i often do), then maybe you should reconsider your music video. the same for your hubby. what the hell was going on "on to the next one"?
