|Nicki Minaj made a controversial entry at the Grammy Awards, |
walking arm in arm with a man dressed as the pope down the red carpet Jan 30, 2013.
"How our young Black stars create illusion from dreams, divine the interest of their peers, interpret the American dream and learn the way money works at the high levels of accumulation comes from not their genius, or creativity, but from the legacy of the generations of Black artists who could not because they weren't allowed access to ownership of soul. I am sure at least the top artists understand this legacy and in tribute, I hope, teach these things to their young impressionable fans. They don't. More often than not they don't. It is evidenced in the youth's behavior and attitude towards life and the fact that so many do not know what Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye and Berry Gordon and the founder of BET did to create this state of affairs in the Hip Hop world and its unique vernacular!..."
