QuestLove has run to Madonna’s defense over that horrific “tribute”. And so it begins… The caping. Man, that was fast. I get it. “Y’all are artists and y’all are sensitive about y’all’s shit.” However, I can’t in good faith encourage these shenanigans. After everything was said and done, she, simply, didn’t get the response that she THOUGHT she should’ve gotten and that’s just too damn bad. Not really but ok. I’m positive that her tears were abundant and extra salty. She was feeling herself entirely too much and it didn’t help that white media was singing her out of tune ass praises.
QuestLove quickly tweeted about Madonna’s supposed bravery and some bullshit that translates to “I know that she can’t sing worth a damn but be nice.”
“Every Prince rendition will not be a life changing orgasmic xperience. Just to SING his work is brave enough. Again feeling are on high..”
*scratching my head* Were we watching the same awards show?
*in my Philliest of Philly voices while Milly rocking on every block*Because MY NIGGA. That shit was trash.
E-40 couldn’t anticipate the way “Captain Quest” came through with his cape and afro to save dis heaux and Madonna, while rocking gold fronts, made no qualms about “wanting to be saaaaaaaaaaaaaved!”
This is what happens when we give white folks a pass to be down. QuestLove has no choice but to defend her. He can’t look like he wasn’t on board although we know that he called Black Thought and cracked the hell up over BET’s shady ass ad for THEIR upcoming Prince tribute. I know Jimmy Fallon might not appreciate you throwing Madonna under the bus but you need to keep it real in these here streets, dude.
Here’s a portion of a secretly recorded conversation directly after she left the stage.
Madonna: *talking through snot and tears in her faux English accent* “Oh My Gaaaaaaaaawd, Quest! Have you been on the Twitter? I effing killed that shit. I said ‘Wooooooo and Cmon’ and everything….Why are they so mean? Don’t they know that I’ve spent nights in the slums of New York? I’m, practically, one of yawl, right bro?”
QuestLove: ” Uuuum… Ionknow ’bout all that and I’m not your bro but I do know that you had on your finest lavender suit and you sat on that throne like you owned it. YOU owned that time on stage and YOU owned those lyrics you sang. Sinead who?”
Madonna: “Thank you, my ninja. You GET me. Prince was like soul in a bong… like the dopest crack I ever smoked. I’m an artist. I vogue and shit. I’m the Material Girl with more soul than Neneh Cherry and Mel B. put together. You feel me son?”
QuestLove: *straight-faced fast blinking* “I’m not your ninja and don’t EVER say that shit again.”
Madonna: “Word, My G!”
QuestLove: *facepalm* Please give that back to Flavor Flav. It’s pathetic.
He sighs… Wypipo.
