Nelly Talking Ish About Halle B.+Christina & Alicia Make Appearances+ Lil Kim Is "Chillin Tonight"

​ ​ ​ ​
Nelly says Tip Drill isn't as bad as Monster's Ball So Nelly talked to the folks over at SOHH.com about why Essence will never put him on the cover.  He says there's a double standard of hip hop acts v. TV acts:
You look at Essence magazine, and they wouldn't put a rapper on the cover...They wouldn't put Nelly on the cover of Essence. Why? I don't know. Would I like to do it? Of course I would. Why not? You wouldn't put me on the cover because of the 'Tip Drill' video ... that's probably your main focus," he added. "But yet still, you put Halle Berry on the cover. She's had a 15-minute sex scene with some white guy in front of a couch ... I mean you can't tell me that 'Tip Drill' was worse than watching that sex scene between Billy Bob (Thornton) and Halle Berry. You can't tell me that. That was longer than four or five minutes. You feel what I'm sayin'?
Boy stop. Alicia Keys performed for Hot 97 listeners for their in-studio series. And she was rocking a cute Akademiks sequin hoody. Me likey. Christina Milian's fab self hit up the House of Taylor Jewels event this weekend: Christina Milian at House of Taylor Jewels Christina Milian at House of Taylor Jewels Christina Milian at House of Taylor Jewels Christina Milian at House of Taylor Jewels

I agree with Nelly to a

I agree with Nelly to a certain extend. HALLE had to be raped to get an Oscar and DENZEL had to be tricked before he took it. At the same time, I do not nor anyone in my family watch BET . BET portraits appalling stereotypes of African-Americans. The show is not fit for a dog. I think Nelly has learned from the bad publicity of Drill Tip and I would like to see him on the cover of Essence , he seems to be a down to earth brother with a good head on his shoulder. LOVE U 4 LIFE NEL.

I DONT CONSIDER THAT TALKING

I DONT CONSIDER THAT TALKING ISH ABOUT HALLE. I THINK HE WAS TRYING TO MAKE A POINT BY CROSS REFERENCING HER SEX SCENE, JUST POORLY DONE. I WAS NOT FEELING THE TIP DRILL VIDEO, BUT I STILL LOVE ME SOME NELLY. (SIGH)..I JUST CANT GET WITH KIM...SORRY!

What Nelly fails to mention

What Nelly fails to mention is that although Halle is performing a sex act on camer, Im sure she wasnt in some backroom sucking off Billy on some groupie status s***. On the set of music videos (and i ve been on many, Im a make up artist), the "women" in the video do a lot of nasty things with the atrist and their entourage. he should not even compare those girls to halle. Is he serious? But on the other hand I can see his point. Esssence has a tendency to contradict themselves, they will dog a rapper who uses mysogynistic lyrics but at the same time will name Debra ee of BET one of the most influential women of the year. Since shes taken her high postion at BET, the way in which Black women are portrayed has not changed.

Soulkat I don't think you can

Soulkat I don't think you can make a rule against people posting "first." It is what it is and I don't think it will ever stop.

Oh please, why does he want

Oh please, why does he want to be on the cover of ESSENCE anyway??? And Halle's not the only one with an intense love scene, TIP DRILL was just degrading and outright DISCUSTING

Nelly's comment makes no

Nelly's comment makes no sense. She was in a movie. He created a video in which he degraded women. I don't believe halle was degrading any woman. She might have made us look at her in a different light. Therefore the question should rather be, why do black woman have to but ourselves out there to win an oscar... Essence should never promote any man who would condone a video like that.

LOL!!! I love Nelly, but

LOL!!! I love Nelly, but must be smokin' something if he thinks his Tip Drill video was more demure than Halle's sex scene from Monster's Ball. Where her scene is debatably gratuitous, Nelly's Tip drill video is without a doubt the most offensive music video I've ever seen (and that includes anything made by Luther Campbell). With that being said, I don’t think that video should be the sole reason for Essence to exclude him from their magazine. A good journalist would welcome the opportunity for him to explain the video and his stance on the industry and how women are view in it. One “mistake” does not make him the enemy.

let me tell you why. what in

let me tell you why. what in the hell is so artistic about nellys portrayal of black women in a music video? halle berry was in a movie with a story line. she wasnt in a rap video with a misgonistic song and ass everywhere. thats why. he is so ignorant i dont know what to do with myself. did halle swipe someones ass with a credit card? i think not. i cant beleive that this is even at question....she is an actor. she plays people. he is an individual that helped portray black women like banchees. seriously? seriously? nelly has lost his mind.

I agree with Nelly. Its

I agree with Nelly. Its because Nelly is a Rapper and its this issue with rappers having these naked girls on the video set. They feel that they are dissrespecting the women when its there decision to do the Videos. With Halle they look at her as one of the best actors. She one of the top Beautiful actresses out there so whatever she do they agree with which they shouldn't.

Okay, I hate to agree but

Okay, I hate to agree but Nelly is telling the truth. I'm so sick of the media hating on the rapper for their videos and praising Halle for her sex scene. The chick hasn't had a good movie since..please. For anyone that peeped the Brandy link..this chick can really sing. If you can blow without the music...sign of a true singer and not like these other chicks out here that can just hold a note and shake their asses. iphone scherm vervangen
