CeeLo Green Slams Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, & Nicki Minaj For Sexual Content: “It Feels Desperate”

Published: Monday 10th Aug 2020 by Sam

While most are enjoying the splash that was Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s racy ‘WAP’ video, CeeLo Green is not one of them.

Indeed, so unsettled by the scantily-clad nature of the clip, the Gnarls Barkley singer was moved to speak out about displays of sexuality by female rappers more broadly. A move that saw him muse on Nicki Minaj unfavourably too.

Full story below…

Speaking to Far Out Magazine, Green said:

“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. 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.”

He went on to add:

“You have the ‘Heads of State,’ like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”

Green concluded:

“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?”

Yikes!

    Oh. Wasn’t he convicted of sexual harrassment or assault a few years ago?

    • Sha Curington August 10, 2020

      He sure was! In 2014, talking about it’s not r*** if she’s unconscious. Scumbag, this guy.

    That suit or wtf he wore to that awards show now that was desperation and he is commenting on this is desperation too, free press.

  7. Kyle August 10, 2020

    I kind of agree. But I feel like Nicki is at least versatile in things she talks about, & when it a sexual it’s clever. Kind of like artists in the past who were sexual. It was done with taste. Songs like WAP is just so in your face it feels nasty & degrading.

    • #WAP August 10, 2020

      Nicki is versatile? She raps “all these chickens are my sons” and wears a colored Wigs and twerks in a mini pool. Nicki is dated, fat, and old. Same thing for 12 years. No growth. Oh and her biggest hits are pop. Can’t be the queen of rap when your biggest hits are pop 🤣

        Yikes you really need to do your research before you make yourself sound dumb. Listen to her songs such as autobiography, all things go, grand piano, regret in your tears, all the songs people don’t see. Watch things like the Pink Print movie and you’ll see how versatile she is. She makes the songs she does because they sell and she is the only artist in the world to have a number 1 on every Billboard chart including the Latina one.

    • Paulo August 10, 2020

      The nerve of saying that with an Imma Slave 4 U avi… I guess bathing in other people’s sweat in the club is ‘tasteful’ for some… yuck

  9. Biancacook August 10, 2020

    Yeah cuz Janet, beyonce madonna and other pop stars don’t

    • Niki August 10, 2020

      What are you talking about ?don’t compare Janet Beyonce and Madonna to this .
      Im sorry but I have to agree with this .Those powerful woman showing ass and boobs and that’s all .
      Janet makes her life into career .she talked about social injustice ,personal control and her sexual liberation ,it was the concept .
      Beyonce and Madonna the same .
      These girls move their ass and that’s all .Are they doing or have to say ,something more that I don’t get ?
      I don’t think so .
      We need those girls but they have nothing to say I m sorry .
      We need girls in music industry to inspire .Talking about real things .
      And not showing their expensive cheap clothes nails hair and move their boobs .
      Jesus don’t ever compare this to Janet and Madonna .
      Pleaseeeee

      • Keith August 10, 2020

        AMEN…leave Janet and Beyonce out of this!

    • Cela August 11, 2020

      Perfect make up, nails, hair, costumes, booties, b****** and bodies. The ladies are pouty, salacious and yearning for WAP. They demand the BBC. Modern American woman. Gyrating, grunting, soliciting, demonstrating sexual prowess and exaggerated desires. Men don’t want to see Mrs. Suzy Homemaker. Boring. Who gives a fuggle about objectification, role models and imagery? The ladies want that WAP! Give it to me now. Wrong and strong.

  10. PUH-Leeease August 10, 2020

    Ceelo… SHUT UP! Rappers have been rapping about s** since the inception of Hip-Hop! Was it desperate when NWA said She Swallowed It? Was it desperate when Cyndi Lauper sang about masturbation on She Bops? Hell Michael Jackson sang about Dirty Diana and Beating It.. And honestly Dirty Diana packed more punch than WAP. Everybody calm down and let these girls have their time.

    • eric August 10, 2020

      I guess my other comment got deleted, but I was saying you’re wrong about Michael. “Beat It” is not about masturbation if that’s what you mean, and “Dirty Diana” is a warning of everything “WAP” is, a temptress and her relentless pursuit of a man.

  11. TRUTHFULLYGood August 10, 2020

    Very desperate they have no real talent or body parts !! They are hookers being rewarded my the industry to hell turn kids into materialistic thots that way it’s easier for them to be manipulated. The rap game is ran by pimps who are grooming the next generation through MUSIC !!

    • eric August 10, 2020

      “The rap game is ran by pimps who are grooming the next generation through MUSIC !!” Absolutely right.

        #SAVETHEMUSIC #SAVETHECHILDREN

  12. eric August 10, 2020

    He’s right, and more people should be saying something. It’s always labeled “self expression” by the same people who argue against women being objectified in music and film.

  13. DeepMind August 10, 2020

    No real talent !! I miss good music and real woman !!

  14. SadBUTtrue August 10, 2020

    Wake up and smell the PEDO GROOMERS IN THE AIR , these artist should be ashamed using all the bright colors to attract children viewers subconsciously. These people are pathetically reaching for attention because they have no real talent!!

  15. Bella August 10, 2020

    It’s funny how a whole ass r***** opens his mouth to talk about someone else.

  16. #WAP August 10, 2020

    Didn’t he ruin his career by allegedly slipping something in a drink? Sounds like his short a_ss is desperate. Sounds like he’s mad he could never get a baddie like Meg or Cardi. Tell us all why you got fired from the voice, fat boy

  17. #WAP August 10, 2020

    Cee-Lo, you were on marriage bootcamp reality stars…what’s more desperate than THAT? Someone just wants attention. He’s just a rounder version of Tory

  18. Bey August 10, 2020

    Worry about sleeping on bro treadmill, no one is checking for you.

  19. tyty August 10, 2020

    A whole r***** talking about sexualization of women?? I’ve seen it all now.

  20. Star August 10, 2020

    He’s stating facts!! Glad someone said it!!! 💯💯💯💯💯

  21. #TheTruth August 10, 2020

    That’s the word I used, desperate.
    WAP definitely reached new lows.
    It’s not because women can own their s€xuality that you have to come off as the biggest ho€ ever.

  22. pincher August 10, 2020

    selling prostitution is the way I see it the song itself sucks so lets get freaky and see if it sells.

  23. Sweetice August 10, 2020

    I agree however I support them.All.To each its own.I just feel like they already up there so they shouldn’t have to bend and squat as much.But they want to so I support .They give the people what they want .Follow ya girl !Artist #SweetIce song #IMSOCUTE thanks

  24. Tishea August 10, 2020

    So a r*****’s opinion on women’s sexuality holds weight with some people. I guess.

  25. Ispa Delongpre August 10, 2020

    A.woman mystique has always been her advantage. These women are raw and crude with very little to no class. What a way to be remembered. No talent. But they know how to spread their legs and show there breast. And that’s how you want your children to remember you.

  26. fufu August 11, 2020

    they are giving people the smut that they want. zero artistic integrity. had this been done creatively and the song was actually good, maybe. but this is really tacky and they are just D-listers to me now. very unattractive women. no way I will ever look at Cardi b and say wow, she’s a s** symbol. the irony is real. the man is right,at what cost?

  27. Cela August 11, 2020

    I wonder if Meghan and Cardi B would receive the same reaction if they were men.

  29. J August 12, 2020

    i’m here for the p u s s y revolution lol. let these women do their thing. These eras come in cycles anyway. Better this than getting a credit card swiped in their asscheeks BET Uncut style. And as far as the kids go, y’all need to be more concerned about global warming destroying their future rather than a f****** music video
