Feminism isn't just good, its a necessary requirement to be a part of a decent society today. But Ariana here sounds like a freshman college student that just heard a Gloria Steinem quote for the first time, went to her wikipedia page and decided "Wow, I am totally a feminist!" (and yes, anyone wanting to ask, there are male equivalents of this... they're called ALL college freshmen). And as for what seems to be the inciting incident for this missive, being called someone's "ex", that is very much a two way street and something odd for Ariana to be frustrated by because she was never at risk of being known as "Big Sean's Ex" by anyone other than maybe Big Sean's mom. Then again, Ariana probably spends most of her time around high schoolers (or at least people with high school level maturity) and I can think of no place in U.S. culture that functions as a more misogynistic "mini-society" than high school (those bullet points seem like they were quotes from respective locker rooms). So it could vital information for a lot of her fan base, at least.

First off, you have a show IN BROOKLYN, you should go to a Brooklyn bar. Second Houndstooth is one of the lamest bridge and tunnel bars in the whole frickin' city. what a classic Potsie Ed Shereen is.

Slightly off topic, what's up with that yelp review where the guy identifies his friends as "Me, another guy, and two lesbians." Huh? Why not just "Two ladies"? What the hell business is it of the bouncer that they're lesbians? Who talks that way?

Abramovic is a much maligned ass clown of the NYC art scene, so her lack of due diligence here isn't the least bit surprising.

With the down votes, please give your reasoning for disapproving of what I just said. Guns N' Roses, Anthrax, Tool, Eminem all have songs about violence and/or violence towards women, yet we are not outraged. Jesus, last year Stereogum and every other music trade paper out there was falling over themselves for Run the Jewels when they had songs actively encouraging murder. And what's more all of these examples were RELEASED for the public to here, imagine what was left on the cutting room floor (like this song was meant to). Once again, not a fan of Rich Homie and I'm certainly not saying he's artistically on the same level as these examples, but the principle is the same. Are people outraged because they're assuming Rich Homie is only capable of rapping things that actually happened to him? Silly question, people are outraged because it is the fastest way to self gratification nowadays. It's art, sometimes it goes ugly places. It might not be very good art, but its still art. Get over it.

Dear Lordy Lord, All the horrible shit sung/said in song lyrics and getting in a tizzy about something that wasn't even released. I'm no fan of Rich Homie or his brand of rap but its a creative process. You really want to put every artist on trial for something they do or say in their work space? Double standards running wild.

Melodies match up well, but the lyrics don't match at ALL (aside from vague comic value).

He had just cashed a pay check. Also he showed them the money (not too bright) but I guess you don't expect part of a famous rappers crew to steal from you. By the way, this took one google search and about 3 minutes. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/04/06/dmx-accused-of-robbing-new-jersey-man-at-a-gas-station-police-say/

April 6, 2015 on Police Investigating Whether DMX Robbed Man At Newark Gas Station
Agreed, all the editorializing at the end of this article is combination of vague assumptions and ignorance mixed together into a big bowl of wrong. The least you could say is "$3200 sure is a lot of money to be carrying around at a gas station in Newark at 12:30." (although he was driving, its not like he was strolling the streets). That way you aren't insinuating the victim must have been a drug dealer or pimp. It is possible that the guy was exaggerating how much money it was or he could be lying about this or that, but oh wait, the story provides absolutely no information to back up those assumptions. Either wait until there is more information or don't say anything at all.

Interesting video. Really nice use of context to shape a scene. Not to be a total buzzkill though, but if we're looking at this as a form of storytelling it doesn't really make sense that the black guy would flee, given the ending.

While race could have something to do with this consider for a moment that these people don't like Kanye's music. If you don't like his music what are left with? An obnoxious, pompous, egomaniac that parades around with his tabloid wife saying things like "Kim is more relevant than Michelle Obama." I think he's an extremely talented performer and producer, but the guy can be pretty insufferable as a human being.
