Do Not Speak To Nicki Like She's "Stupid"

via New York Times

In Nicki Minaj 's latest New York Times profile, "The Passion of Nicki Minaj", the rapper shut down the interview before the writer finished her line of questioning. In the long read, the rap star once again called out Miley Cyrus for appropriating culture, declined to answer questions about her past, and firmly pronounced that she was a feminist.

The interview went south when NYTimes contributor Vanessa Grigoriadis asked the rapper whether she feeds off "drama." “That’s the typical thing that women do,
Nicki quipped. "What did you putting me down right there do for you? Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask? To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that’s not just a stupid question. That’s a premeditated thing you just did.” Shots fired.

The presidential hopeful sent every Republican presidential candidate a copy of her memoir, Hard Choices, recently. Why, you ask? So that they can stay woke on her resume, THAT'S WHY.

"You know I hear the Republicans talking from time to time in their debates and elsewhere and they say things like 'Oh I don't know what she accomplished as secretary of state, she didn't accomplish anything," she said. ' I listened to that for a while and then I thought you know maybe they just don't know," Clinton said Tuesday at an organizing event at an outdoor strawberry farm in Muscatine, Iowa. "So I have now sent each of them a copy of my book, 'Hard Choices,' about what we did during those four years." (Via: ABC News)

Ah, capitalism: Make the highest margins by driving down the cost of production. On Tuesday, Urban Outfitters sent an email to salaried staff workers asking them to chip in and help "pick, pack, and prepare packages" that will be sent to consumers during the company's busy month of October. The memo suggests that the "team-building" exercise will be fun! and that UO will supply lunch and transportation for all its volunteers.

Or you could just pay people, UO. (Via Gawker)

Vashtie made an "unofficial art film" for Drake's hit. It's a good enough filler...FOR NOW.
