JAY-Z’S MANAGER: DO NOT REFER TO JAY-Z AS A ‘RAPPER’, HE IS AN ICON!

November 23, 2009 24 comments

Today I visited the The Voice Online  website and came across one of the funniest quote’s ever via Jasmine’s Juice column.

Jasmine disclosed that Jay-Z’s manager always scolds her when she refers to his client as being a rapper.  

According to Jay’s manager/camp, the RAPPER is NOT a rapper.  “He’s an icon on a level with Bono and the rest”.

I spat out my ginger beer when I first read this.

If Jay’s manager had said that to me I would have laughed out loud and then followed that up with ” You obviously smoke crack. Get out of my sight!”.

Do you know who I consider icons? Prince, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson (Rest In Peace).  These artists have been in the game for over 25 years (including Bono). They have earned the right to be called icons.

Jay-Z hit the big time 11/12 years ago, he put in the work and is a talented artist. But no way has he reached iconic status yet. Give it another 30 years when the young and the old are both playing his records, and then maybe we can talk!

So what if  post 2002 Jay’s profile has SUSPICIOUSLY sky rocketed all over the world and he hangs out with Bono, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Bill Gates and the men who hide in the shadows. That doesn’t make him an icon! 

Members from Jay’s camp will probably go as far as telling us to refer to him as GOD next.

No wait! That’s already happening as we speak!

UK NEWS: ITV 1 CONFIRM PLANS TO AIR CHERYL COLE SHOW

This is getting beyond a joke now! The Cheryl Cole love-fest needs to end! 

ITV has confirmed plans to air a Cheryl Cole special.

The X-Factor judge, singer, ‘national treasure’, ‘nations sweetheart’ and alleged racist /convicted batterer of toilet attendants show, will be titled Cheryl Cole’s Night In.

The programme will see the X Factor judge perform songs from her recent solo release ’3 Words’, as well as feature appearances from acts including Rihanna, Will Young, Alexandra Burke and will.i.am.

“2009 has been an incredible year for me with a number one single and a number one album and being part of The X Factor,” Cole said. “And I couldn’t be happier that ITV have asked me to round off the year with my own show, working with some of my favourite artists.”

The woman is so fake!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, all those acts from overseas who have agreed to appear on her show and those who continue to co-sign the woman (ie Will.I.Am), need to start doing their research before jumping on the Cheryl Cole bandwagon!
