Lil Wayne’s “Prom Queen” Video, Or: “Lil Wayne Has Made A Terrible Mistake”

Lil Wayne: I’m going to make a rock album.
Man 1: You’re going to what?
Lil Wayne: A rock album. I’m going to make a rock album.
Man 1: What do you mean, you’re going to make a rock album?
Lil Wayne: The next album that I make, the music that’s on it is going to be rock music.
Man 2: HEY FUCKHE–
Man 1: What I think Brian is trying to say is that you’re the greatest rapper alive! Before you release a rock album, maybe you should think about it some more. Make sure it’s the right decision.
Lil Wayne: Why wouldn’t it be the right decision?
Man 1: For one, the world already has one Lenny Kravitz, and he’s terrible. No one likes him. But at least with the Lenny Kravitz we already have, he knows how to play guitar, and when he sings he doesn’t sound like a dying muppet’s last breath run through T-Pain’s discarded vocoder.
Lil Wayne: Lollipop.
Man 1: I can tell you’re serious. Well what is your rock album going to be about?

Lil Wayne: Um, duh, it’s a rock album. It’s going to be about white people stuff. Like prom.
Man 1: How do I put this Mr. Wayne…I’m not sure that the audience is ready for a Lil Wayne rock album.
Lil Wayne: I’ll put glasses on.
Man 1: You’ll put glasses on.
Lil Wayne: I’ll put black horn-rimmed glasses on. Lollipop.
Man 1: Clearly there is no stopping you.
Lil Wayne: Look, it’s like Gwyneth Paltrow always says: if people don’t like it, it’s because they don’t get it.
Man 1: I definitely think people don’t get it.
Lil Wayne: She also says that people just want to keep you in your box. They don’t like it when you break out of your box.
Man 1: You really need to stop reading interviews with Gwyneth Paltrow.
Lil Wayne: She’s the reason for all of this. Blame her.
Man 1: I do.
