Remember the sorority girls that were called out for singing along to Kanye West’s song ‘Gold Digger’?
Apparently, there are songs you just can’t sing along to unless you’re white.
Or should I say non-black?
Because there were other races there, too.
Victoria’s Secret has been criticized in the past for not being ‘diverse’ enough in the representation of various ethnic groups in their models. In the past few years, however, they have been adjusting their model casting to reflect many different groups. Pop Sugar reported that the 2017 show was ‘the most inclusive ever’ with 55 models representing 20 countries with over half of them being women of color.
So, these were the woman singing along to the crap Cardi B song.
A group of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show models have been slammed after a video emerged appearing to show several of the young women saying the N-word while singing along to rapper Cardi B’s hit song ‘Bodak Yellow.’
The short clip shows several models, most of whom appear to be white, dancing around in their custom made robes backstage before the show in Shanghai to the chart topping song and rap the lyric: ‘I don’t wanna choose / And I’m quick, cut a n***a off, so don’t get comfortable.’

You know that the outrage-mongers are out in force.
They’re going to complain about all the ‘white women’ singing along to the ‘n-word’.
I’ll say this a million times:
If you don’t want people saying the word, don’t put it in your song.
It’s interesting to note that the Grammy Awards were criticized for being ‘so white’ last year and this year they are being ‘dominated’ by people of color.
So, essentially, this is the music that is being listened to and loved everywhere.
As a matter of fact, Cardi B has been nominated for two Grammys for this particular song — one for Best Rap Song, and another for Best Rap Performance.
These models are being criticized for singing along to a song that has been nominated for a Grammy as the Best Rap song of the year.
If you’re not familiar with Cardi B’s song ‘Bodak Yellow’ count yourself blessed. It’s vile.
-snip- …., that song is essentially an ode to prostitution. She’ll do whatever with whomever — even stealing guys from other girls — so that she can get some sex-crazed dupe to buy her Yves St. Laurent swag and Christain Louboutin shoes.
But hey, she was a stripper and she ‘uses men’ to feel empowered. She says she’s lost count of the number of men she’s slept with since she was 16. She loves Li’l Kim’s sluttiness. She speaks of feminism quite inarticulately here.
Personally, as a female Editor at ClashDaily, I’m disgusted that these women are singing this backstage in the age of Weinstein. Doesn’t that just put more women in compromising positions if powerful men feel like preying on them?
But then, this is our culture now.
