Nelly Calls Out Spelman Protestors, Tying Them To His Sister’s Death

Published

on

Nelly stated in a recent interview that the women at Spelman College are partly responsible for his sister’s death.

In 2004, the rapper attempted to hold a bone marrow drive to support his sister, Jaqueline Donahue who was dying of leukemia, but was protested by the women on Spelman College because of the extreme sexism in his “Tip Drill” music video. People have seemed to forget about this protest and Nelly has not talked about it much until a recent interview with Huffington post where he stated,

“The Spelman thing, the only thing I feel I would’ve did different is kick somebody’s ass…that’s just how it felt to me, Pimp,” he stated. “I don’t have my sister. And I doubt it if half of those girls are still campaigning for what they quote, unquote took advantage for that opportunity for.”
“You [protesters] robbed me of a opportunity. Unfairly, my brother. Because we could’ve still had your conversation after I got my opportunity, but it could’ve been somebody that was coming to that bone marrow drive that day, that was possibly a match for my sister. That didn’t come because of that…”

Nelly followed up by pointing out the hypocrisy of the protesters, “You’re not even probably protesting right now and half of y’all that was protesting, is probably in them clubs, dancing to them songs on the weekend that your protesting about”.

What do you think about this whole situation? Let us know in the comment section below.

    FYI that bone marrow drive did happen. It was postponed for a few days, while Spelman found different financial backing because Nelly pulled out. Almost 400 women come to the drive and donated the only thing that was actually cancelled was the concert. He lost his sister, I understand that hes upset.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
