A lot more went down in 2012 but these particular UK ‘antics’ stick out the most in my mind.
Check out my short list below.
Alexandra Burke was very busy this year releasing and promoting new music. The singer along with her publicity team also expected us to believe that she was ‘dating’ footballer Jermain Defoe but that was a crock of rubbish. This had to be the biggest “showbiz” lie and joke of the year. But nice try Alexandra. I wish you all the best in 2013
Members from the multi-platinum selling Hip Hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (a fave of mine) were filmed hanging out in London with UK artist Jammer and a bunch of hanger on’s and randoms. I still don’t understand how or why this ‘union’ happened.
2012 was definitely a year for bashing black women especially on Twitter. Misguided and lost young black British men (usually the very dark skinned variety) who have clearly never looked in a mirror, have self hate issues and a lack of brain cells enjoyed verbally abusing black women on public forums (particularly those of a darker hue). But remember folks it was only “banter”.
One blogger even wrote an article telling all us black ladies to ‘Lighten Up’.
This year a Caucasian Twitter user sporting a really deep tan decided to start the Twitter trend #Why I’m Not Attracted To Black Girls, and then proceeded to tweet racist insults aimed at black women. This fool along with his young, dumb and black friends/disciples thought it was oh so hilarious and then cried “it’s only banter” when many took offence and tore him a new one.

It all kicked off at Woodbridge High School in North East London after the school’s headmaster cancelled a visit from actor/ official spokesperson for “URBAN” youth Adam Deacon. CLICK HERE to read all about it.
So Solid rapper and former Celeb Big Brother contestant MC Harvey provided a week of laughter after NOW Magazine splashed this story across their front cover.
Cheryl Cole jumped on Twitter and denied ever having a relationship with the rapper. Then Harvey later accused NOW of taking his words out of context (side eye) and appeared on Choice FM to discuss the matter further. Hahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaha. Pappi show.
In January a clearly annoyed and rattled Jammer compiled a rather spiteful ‘Ugly Female Artists list’, which was in response to GRM Daily’s ‘Top 10 Sexiest Males In Grime and Rap’ list.
Hahahaha *shaking head*
This wasn’t Jammer’s finest hour.
