Peep the US Weekly story.
What do I think? I really don’t care if he was faking the ‘ugly cry’ or not. I don’t get why folks were so fascinated on whether or not he was sincere. It’s just unimportant. There are far more interesting, shallow things to meditate on like Tiger Woods’ wife getting paid. Or Alicia Keys’ climbing on top of that piano at the BET Awards. Or the fact that the Gucci sale is over.

Here are a few quotables from Vibe’s cover story on Nicki Minaj.
About that very similar Lil Kim photo that she posed for: “I don’t like the picture and I don’t like to talk about it.”
About the lesbian rumors: “I don’t date women and I don’t have sex with women.”
How she feels about the response to ‘Massive Attack’: “It was important for me to do something not everyone thought I was gonna do . . .People close to me have their preferences their favorite Nicki thing, and I have to stand up sometimes and block out the noise.”
On “auditioning” her ‘Bedrock’ verse to Wayne: “‘Okay I get it, let me think, I guess it’s my turn/Maybe it’s time to put this pussy on your sideburns. And as soon as I said that he smiled because I was talking to him. Wayne has those infamous sideburns, and I knew that would make him laugh. Then, when I got to the last line ‘And I just be coming off the top— asbestos’ he looked to the side. And then looked to the other side. And he looked up to the ceiling and he smiled because he got it. And he was like ‘Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.’’”

Singer Teairra Mari gives her perspective on what she sees as a woman’s natural attraction to a beautiful woman. Men, you’ll love this. Peep a few excerpts below:
I don’t care what any woman says, if you see a beautiful woman you’re like, “Oh My Gosh she’s beautiful’ and you may be a little attracted. You may not want to jump in the bed with her, but I don’t think if you kiss her, you wouldn’t like it. I think that it’s this underlying temptation we all have. I see beautiful women all the time and I’m like, “Damn, she’s hot” and I don’t feel any kind of way about that. I feel good and I’ll tell her too. That doesn’t mean I’m going to jump in the bed with her, but if she’s hot I might kiss her.
I haven’t tongued a girl down, but I’ve done a peck before. It wasn’t even a dare or a drunken thing, it was just something that I wanted to do [Laughs]. She was beautiful. She was friends with a close friend [and] we were all hanging out.
[And] don’t think I could kiss a close friend. I would want to tell my close friend, “Girl, I just kissed this girl.” I don’t want it to be her because I want to talk about it. There’s no discrimination, but that’s just how I feel. I love men and I love the little things between their legs, and that’s what I love the most [Laughs]. So I wouldn’t be emotionally attached to a woman unless I was getting with one of those little things [Laughs].

***Cue the music….I kissed girl and I liked it. The taste of her cherry chap stick.
