@ 9:51. i know. i found it amusing too non blacks giving homage to a show that they were just kids when on the air. what do they know about living color? and i actually like bruno mars, and he at least has the good sense to verbally say it has been black culture/music that are the foundation of his success, he doesn't act like he invented it like some of these white artists. yet, still he is not black. and i don't know this i'm not feeling. it's just jarring to see two non blacks being symbols for black culture.

@E well damm! Spill that tea..it hot too girl lol.
The only thing I heard about Bruno was that he got caught in the men's room at some club with coke.

I never liked Bruno! He’s just another culture vulture who does black music and is praised and loved, and sells millions of records yet black artist doing r&b & pop barely get any shine in the mainstream and are struggling. Bruno, Justin Timberfake, Adele, Eminem all of them can kick rocks as far as I’m concerned!

Clearly something I wrote piqued your petty ass interest. I don’t have to prove shit to illerate birds like you. Toodles.

@ E-Stokes you like to stoke bull shit. making statements with no fukin back up. That shit may work on the senseless but don't get mad when you're asked for FACTS.... Stoker Ass Joker

Is anyone creative anymore? Everyone is doing throw back stuff or “paying homage” which basically has turned into just copying the sound and style of the past decades and past artists who invented them.

L. Eller said...

@10:50 but Eminem did at least put a lot of black rappers on ... such as 50, D12 and Slaughterhouse, so he gets a pass in my book.

You know what it is @E-Stokes...pay that dust. It's apparently troll season.

by bruno: I will NEVER support this trash that is infiltrating music.

I love you Bruno, but I'll wait for your next one. I aint tryna hear trash nowhere around me. Yes, I'm a hater. Sue me! Hate that $$$ is killing the art of music by polluting our ears with trash

Niki is OUT...Cardi is IN said...

Cardi"s teaming up with Bruno is a message to Niki Menaj and the final nail in the coffin in her reign as the Top Female Rap Attraction.

Cardi will now be the most sought after and take Nikis place as the "it" girl for endorsements and promotional gigs from the Top of Fashion, TV, Movies, and Music, and Branding opportunity from Liquor and Sneaker corporations.

Niki is OUT Cardi is in

WHY YOU ASK?

Her blatant calling out and disrespect the fashion world when she said “Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherfucker that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight.”

Her calling teen MOM Farrah Abraham a cunt.
Teen MOM, a ratings monster owned by Viacom.

Her public beef on National TV with Mariah Carey tarnishing the image of American Idol and being responsible for a major ratings tank. American Idol owned by Simon Fuller and a huge money maker for ABC and Fox.

Her disrespect on National TV to RCA Sony artist
Miley Cyrus

RCA Sony
MTV Viacom
American Idol
CBS
FOX

Niki pissed all the door keepers to her celebrity success. They are all Multi billion dollar companies- Niki was just the help

Lets see how Cardi does

TPTB have chosen Carli to be the next ?, to draw on the minority community, to get their money. Bruno was just told to mix her in because he is the most talented and truly an artist. Wait and see if Carli can live up to this boost (I doubt it).

Anonymous said...

@10:50 Really! We all know that black folks have defined the music past, present that is copied. Does it really matter what color you are that you follow your inspirations and dreams. Above who ever said Profiting off our culture you seem like a fucking racist! That is why niggas can never get ahead because of thoughts and comments like that! with you non-ambitious ass!

Anonymous said...

Cardi B is trash. She is proof of how unfair life is. Here it is talented you artists of color continue to struggle because they dont have "business acumen" and they aren't willing to exploit themselves for money like this hideous possum faced hoe!

I'm not a fan of Bruno but he is a true artist and performer. He has scrapped the bottom with this stunt. And the way Black folks fawn over Bruno Mars is embarassing. Black people are always looking for a savior or some non-Black person to validate us.

Cardi B is #1 and Trump is president---way to go, Murica.

The biggest culture vultures out there are Black. Since the 90's rappers have most believing shitty music, slangs and fashion are Black culture when it isn't.
No one ever mentions literature, food or actual art as being a part of our culture even though it is a major aspect of who we are. I wish youngsters would broaden their horizons and stop letting others paint them into a corner.

I agree with you 100%. You are right on point you didn't miss a beat.

Even though she confirmed on the breakfast club yhat she is a blood gang member I notice she cut dressing in red all the way out.

I wonder if the label had anything to do with that?

Anonymous said...

12:16 Bitch I said what I said and if you don’t like it, you can kiss my mother fucking ass! You can miss me with all that “racist” bullshit I’m stating straight FACTS. Black culture is being stolen and our image is being erased right in front of our eyes and dumb ass apologists like you are way to stupid it to see it.

Y’all saw how those white folks acted a fool when BeyoncĂ© performed at the country awards. Let me ask you this when was the last time there was a Black Country star, male or female that had #1 records, sold millions of records, or won all types of country awards? NEVER that’s when! And it ain’t EVER gonna happen either because white folks have that genre on lock and they will never let blacks or anyone else take it over, meanwhile No talent Trash like Iggy Azalea can spit her nursery rhymes and have a #1 record and win all type of best hip hop awards. She finally fell off when folks woke up and saw her as the joke she was but yet black female rap artist other than Nicki, will never see the exposure that iggy did and there lays the problem!

White folks or other non threatening minorities with half the talent imitate us and are praised, rewarded , and PAID! Yet we do it and we hardly sell. There’s no reason soul singers like India Ire, Ledisi, Jill Scott etc who have been in the game for decades, make great music, and can sing circles around Adele will never see one tenth of the success and wealth she will with her mediocre ass and it’s bullshit that has been happening since Elvis thieving ass was on top of the charts, and if me pointing that out makes me racist then oh the fuck well so be it!

It's refreshing to see women wearing clothing in a video. And dancing like normal womeni instead of strippers. I guess it's Cardi B's trademark to have her tongue hanging out all the time. That song sounds like Why You Getting Funky On Me.

I don't like this song but I'm sure just because its Bruno and Cardi that it will go up the charts. They should've left this song in their minds. By the way I know Joseline Hernandez shits a brick every time she sees Cardi B on a song. Note to Joseline you got too big headed and you lost your job. If only would you get off the drugs maybe you could get a good rapping career.

Cardi b afrolatina.So, she is part black. Yall may feel a certain way about Bruno but the fact that he credits blacks for his craft shows that he is gracious and aware so I wouldnt label him as a culture vulture.

The video brings me back to the days when I used to watch In Living Color. I miss the 90's at times.

I troll it like I see it. said...

Well said and cosign. Bruno is an actual artist with talent, the other one they desperately trying to convince us is talented is laughable. My people don't get angry just don't support the shit. We always have the ability to not ingest the lies they attempt to force feed us with. At this point in our evolution we are too woke for these Caucasian shenanigans.

✿✿Dotty✿✿ said...

I watched the video and I like it. I still think there are more people that are more talented than Cardi, but its a good video, and im feeling the song and the dancing brings me back, back to the way that dancing used to be. Dances that have steps put together and not just an as twerk to the left and another twerk to the right. The set, the clothes and the styles were on point. I like the song, and video was cool. I do agree with the other posters here who said that Nikki is being replaced with Cardi. You are all definetely right that she has burned a lot of bridges.

U give a man who whole career was built off of a lie a pass. Additionally this same man..Eminem wrote racist lyrics against black people and at least two songs solely against destroying black women...he hasn't given the black community anything 50 cent is for white people he always was.

I liked it. Nice homage to the actual In Living Color set. Be nice to see some of the original cast hook up to just have fun with it.
