There is no such thing as culture or greatness in modern society. It’s all based on wealth and power. The New York Times Style magazine, T, released it’s list of “The Greats” on October 22. While it makes sense to list lyricist Stephen Sondheim and other artists and novelists, at least in some way, there seemed to be no rhyme or reason for honoring rapper Nicki Minaj in the same list.
Ariana Grande’s new hit “Side to Side” may be set in a spinning studio, but working out was just a sly cover for the real subject of the video: having so much sex that you can’t walk afterward.
Initially, reviewers and fans didn’t pay much attention to the lyrics, as they were easy to miss amidst the catchy beat and frenetic activity. Reflecting on the music video, which portrays Grande as a sort of dolled-up spin instructor Elle writer Alyssa Bailey wondered if the video were “a deeper commentary on the ridiculous pressure women face to always. look. good. even when they're at a hellish spin class.”
Left-wing website Salon.com got a taste of its own politically-correct medicine when they recently tweeted about the verbal smack-down that rapper Nicki Minaj gave pop-tart singer/exhibitionist Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.
