Blind Item #2

The foreign born former A list rapper now realizes she was tricked by varying forces to abandon a show in a foreign country. She thought it was solidarity and all that. Instead, now she watches as others go in and collect the checks and laugh at her.

So she starts trying to do the right thing after doing the wrong things for so long and gets laughed at. Not sure if it is Karma but if she feels strongly about something she has to be able to stand by it.

Know what's better than cancelling your gig in a country ruled by a murderous royal family? Never booking the gig in the first damn place. It's not like Saudi Arabia suddenly became an authoritarian, woman-hating shithole.

+1 to MountainMama and Thorne
Getting tricked into kinda doing the right thing and seeing it backfire is pretty funny.

Samantha said...

If the people who told her not to do it, then booked the same gig, that is some shady shade. That is some backstage at the Kiwanis beauty pageant schtick.

Nicki in Saudi Arabia. I thought that probably a "sponsor" dropped out and that's why she cancelled.

MissDavie said...

The Saudis are horrible, but at least they are of this world. They enjoy their money and what and who they can buy with it. Hint: just about anything and anybody. They will go on forever and they seem to be making some kind of modernizations at a snail's pace.

The thing to worry about is the Iranians. Not the people so much, but the Mullahs. They do not care about the modern world or civilization. Nothing would please them as much as taking the entire world back hundreds of years to what they consider the Golden Age of their religion. When Iran has nuclear capability, the entire world will be their hostages. Little things at first like do we really need Pride month? Progressively more and more demands. Do you really need a dog? Are gay people really worth the trouble? Shouldn't women cover up a bit more? It would be a shame to see a nuke go off in a major city...now wouldn't it?

Pay attention now or pay attention later. Now would be much better.

Gotta love the way US citizens make excuses for the Country Responsible for 9/11.

Max Power said...

^^^ are you fucking insane? One of the very biggest sponsors of state terrorism (right up there with Iran and the US), who spawned the asswipes that flew the planes into WTC, who execute gays and oppress women, and your comment is "Yeah, they're bad but not as bad as Iran." What's the point of adding that pearl of wisdom to this thread?

Thorne said...

Guys, guys...we can be mad at Saudi Arabian rulers AND Iranian mullahs. We've got more than enough anger to go around.

J said...

Look, rappers always do the right things for the right reasons.

Miss Teak said...

Good for her for cancelling and who cares if other performers are laughing at her choice. This is just like not playing Sun City- there’s no shame in taking the high road.

Christine said...

But wait, I thought she went there to yacht?

MissDavie said...

I was very clear and not making excuses for Saudi Arabia. I said they are of this world. They enjoy their wealth and privilege and no not want the world to end. Iranian Mullahs don't care if the world ends or not.

We are ignoring the major threat to the human race dearies, that's why I added my pearls of wisdom on a thread that was already about Saudi Arabia. Not that big a stretch.

Krissie said...

lol sorry but there's no way iran is taking over the world. they're not the only one with nukes. we will all blow ourselves up before that happens so you can stop worrying about that

Krissie said...

damn why won't it 'let me sub to the topic

rabbit said...

Add Pence, McDonnell, and DeVoss to the likes of the rulers of Saudi Arabia. Cut of the same cloth.

Dumblesnore said...

LOL I like it! Now which one should right wingers be more mad at and which one is more for the libs? They'll need to know that on here too.
