Legend has it, Nicki Minaj is a talentless assclown fueled by marketing and hijinks rather than musical integrity.

When asked to shed some light on the truth, Ms. Minaj flipped out, invoked the race card, donned a pair of sparkly green winkle-pickers and went skateboarding dressed as a gummi bear.

From a thread last August, not sure who posted it.  Still makes me laugh:

I'm familiar with all of Phil's work, though I wish I wasn't. He lived up the street from me when he was a young man. I was twenty-five, working at a cannery, wandering aimlessly, drinking pint after pint every night to put myself to sleep. Well, I'm not proud to say this, but one drunken night, a young Phil Collins seduced me in the shed behind his parent's house. When it was over, I ran down to the sea and sat in the cold water for hours, trying to wash the fingerprints from the scene of the crime, my asshole. Every time I'd see him riding his bike after that, he'd spread his index and middle fingers and then flick his tongue at the crux where they met. I wasn't sure what it meant but it was horrifying.

Then the guy has the tenacity to write "In the Air Tonight." Listening to the lyrics just about drove me mad because he'd put himself in the place of victim and me in the place of predator. I bought tickets to one of his live shows, front row, with the sole purpose of confronting him. I was carjacked on the way to the arena, so I arrived late. When Phil looked down into the crowd and saw me, he gave a wry smile and then launched into that horrific, tormenting rock ballad. HOLD ON. Christ, I can still hear him shouting that at me as he plowed me from behind and I strained to keep hold of the lawnmower's handle. I couldn't take it anymore and had a breakdown.

Phil ordered his security thugs to forcibly remove me. They beat me near half dead before tossing me unconscious in the parking lot. When I came to, I learned that he'd cooked up this story about spotting his molester in the crowd and having him arrested. More good publicity for Phil; pain and anguish for me.

I would kill that bastard if I could.

Fun fact: The Roberta Flack song "Killing Me Softly"  was about Don MacLean and "American Pie".

Intentional or no....It definitely sounds like "it's fun to smoke marajuana" when Another One Bites the Dust is played backwards. I've personally played it backwards on some piece of shiat kiddie record player back in the day.

<i>The scream heard at the beginning of the second verse was the cover model from the band's Honey album being stabbed to death in the studio. </i>

What, you mean that isn't true?? I AM SHOCKED.
