Some Lessons Female Rappers Taught Me Some Lessons Female Rappers Taught Me

As a teenager in the early ‘90s, I was exposed to a variety of messages through the hip-hop of the time, which was often socially conscious, and in ways both militant and matter of fact. I just happened to pay special attention to the work of women in hip-hop, and thinking back, these are some of the things that I…

Amy Schumer Says Critic Who Called Her Ugly Tried to Date Her  Amy Schumer Says Critic Who Called Her Ugly Tried to Date Her 

Here’s a fun story about an entitled dude: In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer said that a critic who had written about her unfortunate looks in review of her movie Trainwreck, later asked her out. Schumer said:

​We Are All This Woman Who Got Caught Rapping to Salt-N-Pepa ​We Are All This Woman Who Got Caught Rapping to Salt-N-Pepa

Ever since I first watched Motormouth, that VH1 show where people would unknowingly be taped in their cars singing along to their car jams—A VERY VULNERABLE MOMENT I MIGHT ADD—I have been pretty afraid of um, secretly being filmed going to town on a song in the car. So this woman whose husband caught her rapping to…

Portlandia Performs Salt-N-Pepa, Officially Becomes the Best Thing to Happen to Us Portlandia Performs Salt-N-Pepa, Officially Becomes the Best Thing to Happen to Us

Sweet Brownstein! Could the duo behind Portlandia get us anymore pumped for the show's upcoming season? The answer — no doy (yep, I said "doy") — is of course they can, especially if they (joined by Mirah and Thao) close out their premiere party with every person on Earth's favorite song, "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa.…

Still reeling from the Salt-n-Pepa reality show, where we found out that Salt gave up the fly life for church and motherhood, but Pep was still Pep? VH1's new show might soothe our broken hearts.

Scarlett Can Sing, But She Sure Can't Rap

Today on Ellen Pete Yorn said he asked Scarlett Johansson to record Break Up with him even though he didn't know if she could sing. But when Ellen made Scarlett rap Salt-N-Pepa's "Shoop," she failed the audition. Clip at left.

Doesn't Anyone Miss Having Ladies In Hip-Hop? Doesn't Anyone Miss Having Ladies In Hip-Hop?

We've posted about the lack of female rappers before, and yesterday, Jonah Weiner had a story on Slate in which he wrote, "Today, female rappers are flukes on the charts, and exactly zero women were nominated at this year's BET Hip-Hop Awards and VH1 Hip-Hop Honors. What happened?" Word. Sure, Queen Latifah has a CD…

Boys Clubs Boys Clubs

"Hair and makeup is killing female hip-hop. The grooming cost to break a female rapper versus a male rapper is 10 times as much per appearance. That tends to have an adverse effect on a record company’s willingness to even entertain a female rapper." This is a quote from an industry insider, since neither the VH1…

"Got Any Deep Throating Tips?"

It's time for another installment of Pot Psychology, the advice column in which everyone's problems are solved with an "herbal" remedy. (Remember, kids: Don't do drugs!) In this episode, Rich and I got help from our pal Sasha Frere-Jones, to tackle problems like reclusive behavior, definitions of words, and all the…

Last night in New York City at the FIFI Awards - the "Oscars" of the fragrance industry - designer Vera Wang helped to honor some of the most creatively-pungent people, or rather, the industry and its achievements in fragrance creation. Whatever: regardless of the reason for the occasion, celebs like Taylor Momsen,…

Last night, Conde Nast Traveler hosted a party to celebrate its 8th annual "Hot List" and the maybe-pregnant Ashlee Simpson, left, was there looking pretty as can be.

'The Salt-N-Pepa Show': It's Necessary That You Watch

The Salt-N-Pepa Show debuted on VH1 last night and we totally love it. To be more precise, we totally love Pepa. Seriously, she keeps it real — which can be a difficult task when it comes to reality television, these days. She's still the same as she always was: Enjoys her own music, showing her ass, giving lap…

Did Pepa From Salt-N-Pepa Get A Nose Job? Did Pepa From Salt-N-Pepa Get A Nose Job?

We're really psyched about the premiere of The Salt-N-Pepa Show coming up in two weeks on VH1. It should be interesting since Salt (Cheryl) and Pepa (Sandy) had a falling out — due largely in part to Cheryl's new-found spirituality and unwillingness to perform the duo's racier material — and haven't spoken to each…

'The Salt-N-Pepa Show' Sneak Peek!

Salt-N-Pepa are the latest celebs to sign on for a reality show on VH1. The aptly titled The Salt-N-Pepa Show will focus on the former friends/band mates severed friendship. Apparently, it has a lot to do with Salt becoming all Christian and not wanting to sing about sex anymore. Lame! "None of Your Business" is like…
