Here’s the latest masterpiece from Nicki Minaj: http://pitchfork.com/news/55482-nicki-minaj-shares-pills-n-potions-video/ The video itself is just a transparent excuse to show off her body, but the real gem is the song, featuring sparkling bits like this quartet: “Hey yo they could never make me hate you / Even though what you was doing wasn’t tasteful / Even though you out here looking so ungrateful / I’m a keep it moving, be classy and graceful.”  I really wonder who is listening to this stuff and why.  What do they get when they listen to it?  What, if anything, do they think or feel when they listen? This is the kind of thing that almost makes me crave government censorship of the arts.  Yeah, they’d clamp down on a lot of good experimental art, but at least they’d put the lid on crap like this in the process.
