CeeLo Apologizes After Slamming Nicki Minaj, Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s Music
Update (8/12/2020): CeeLo took to his social media to apologize to Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion and offer more clarity behind his previous statements.
In a Twitter post, CeeLo expresses that he’s a fan of the ladies and that he’s an advocate of artistic freedom.
Singer, CeeLo discussed the salacious music, telling Far Out,
“We are adults. There should be a time and a place for adult content. As adults and artists, we should at least attempt to be each other’s accountability partners in some regard.”
He continued on to say,
“The stereotypes that are celebrated and perpetuated, ultimately make the perception a reality. It is disenfranchising and it has caused a great deal of problems.”
CeeLo’s statements come shortly after the release of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s single “WAP”, an acronym for “Wet A** [explitive]”. The song, which has already garnered more than 60 million views on YouTube, is the first collaboration between the two hip hop giants.
With its catchy hook and hard rap beat, female fans have instantly made it somewhat of an anthem. Watch the video below.
CeeLo also expressed,
“You have the ‘Heads of State,’ like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolades: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”
The famed singer suggests,
“Attention is also a drug and competition is around. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all but it comes at what cost?”
