I Say We "Superman" The Music Industry

Yes this picture is of me putting my hand in someone's face...

I have been really bitchy lately. Everything has been pissing me off. I don’t know if it is just me, or what the f*ck is going on around me. WIRED is really on my level with their February issue entitled “Things That Suck”, because right now, things really do suck.

Our health care system sucks, the fact that over $500 billion has been spent on the War in Iraq, sh*tty drivers, men, stoopid people (for example, the lady who posted for a hit man on Craigslist and now is serving time). I already have a bad feeling about the upcoming election and most importantly, the music industry sucks hard on my nipples. (Ouch!!)

I recently found a new blogger I’m diggin’, Eclectik, who wrote a really intricate piece on the direction of music today. Ten years ago an artist had to actually have a thing called talent to get a record deal. Today the music industry is looking for anyone they can mold into plastic and bubble wrap for distribution.

Then, even better, G-Sweet put me up on game, when he sent me an email describing what “supermanning that ho” actually means...

“Superman is when a guy ejaculates on a girl's back and puts a sheet on her back. When she wakes in the morning and stands up, the sheet is stuck to her back (like a cape), you have officially supermanned that ho.”

I have nothing to say about that. My only form of retaliation was over the weekend, I went out and bought a handful of albums that had nothing to do with “supermanning a ho”.

What happened to all the real artists?

Oh that’s right…nevermind...

Hey, just for fun, let's go back in time...

There, we go, that's better.



Can someone please tell me WTF is going on???

Nobody cares about music anymore. It's about the checks nowadays. Artists don't care about creativity as much as the formulas to success. that's why all of hip hop and most of R&B is what it is today.

for real music, go on the space and look up NouveauRiche and Mishal Moore

Star (Mr. Pause... and I'm not pressing play yet)

I think the same thing is going on in the music industry that's going on in the rest of American society: Ignorant, avarice-driven, narcissistic people (especially black), have raised (and are raising) ignorant, greedy, narcissistic people (children). Yeah, that's over simplified, but I think that's the crux of it.

Diva said...

Real music is a lost art. Everybody wants to use it to show what their platform is and collect a bigger than they should check...instead of recording that good hot monkey sex type of music. You know the kind that meant somethin??

Karrie B. said...

hmmmmmmm i thought supermanning a hoe was just ejaculating on her. all that detail is too f*cking much. ugh. so annoying. i listen to the miseducation of lauryn hill sometimes and wonder when the hell she's comin' back. makes me sad.

Deutlich said...

Shit, I've been tryin' to figure out the same damn thing.

MsPuddin said...

skinny girl- keyword WAS hot…

maverick- wow a country behind on crap music? Well at least we can look to them to know what it coming out net right?

cannon- ok that’s scary that REAL music can be found on MySpace…

nupe- no, that about sums it up…my parents used to school me on some sh*t when I was growing up. Today parents and kids are “supermanning hos” together…

diva- wait, meant something? Oh yeah, now I remember…

karrie b- welcome!! I had no idea what it meant, I just already wasn’t feeling that song..

deutlich- we scratchin’ our heads together…

Mister Underhill said...

Of all the places to cum on a woman, the back is the least fun.

Still_Pocahontaz said...

I have officially thrown my hands up....I was nodding my head to Talib Kweli and my sisters (15/16)were looking at me like I was crazy, I go in the living room, BET is blasting a video "Crank that BATMAN"...HOLD THE FCK UP!!!what we need to do is crank that bat and knock some of these fools upside the head!

Opinionated Diva said...

Ok...after reading the part about what supermanning that ho means, everything else you wrote just left my mind.

I have no words...

Laughing through my chardonnay said...

Well, Miss Hill went crazy and said all white people are the devil. That'll get your ass thrown right our of the music industry.

What about artists like Otis Redding and bands like Pink Floyd? Now those people have talent.

James Tubman said...

i love lauryn hill

she's dressing like that i assume because she is trying to make a political statement

true artists often outgrow their audience

lauryn hill is making a personal choice not to be mainstream but to just appeal to her loyal fans

i love it

even though she is a lot sexier in regular clothes and make up lol

ps. that dude soljah boy is a complete moron lol

lea78 said...

I love getting superman'd. It feels great!!! but ugh BET and MTV killed all the real artist. Oh and let's not forget You Tube

Hex said...

Are we sure that's Lauren Hill in the "after" pic?

Because it looks like Dionne Warwick ..you know, after getting mugged by Ronald McDonald.

rs27 said...

Oh I thought Superman that Ho meant you lift a girl up and she puts her arms out...

You win this round Chingy..er.. Soulja Boy.

I'm listening to Sam Cooke, is that too far back?

eclectik said...

I WILL NOT Superman the industry...not as long as Fantasia and Macy Gray is in it :)

It's easy to be a bitch...people are stupid and useless.

Love this blog.

good lookin on the shout.

Smitty said...

As soon as an ART becomes a BUSINESS....It's over. When you make music as a product instead of an expression. You get 99.9% of what the mainstream media has in heavy rotation.

Ms.Lady said...

I was just tellin my brother how I cant take that lil' boy and his non talented ass!!!
What is REALLY goin' on???
Where is music???
Has is died??
Ugh!!

Afrodite said...

Thaaaaaaaat's what ?Superman that ho'" means?!?

Good lord, I weep for the youth of America.

Qucifer said...

I'd cosign with anonymouusnupe And add that greedy music executives just think of churning a fucking record just to do it, additionally at some point (maybe that supermaning hoe shit being the number 1 song in the country for weeks) they figure the consumer is so absolutely fucking dumb and undemanding that real artistry is a moot point to waste on us the stupid mass


oh yeah and everyone just gets in the business to have a branded liquor, clothing andd blunt line

Don said...

eclectik's blog is the truth.

I started to get @ you when I saw that crazy looking picture of L Boogie. But you saved face with the older version. I miss the music she created.


Have you ever heard of artist Joy Denalane? She is that deal, as well.

MsPuddin said...

mr u- oh so you’re the guy who does the angry pirate huh…

still_p- talib kweli is the sh*t! sit your sisters down and school them on a thing or two…

op diva- see what I’m telling you? It’s not even worth the words…

chard- what songs do Pink Floyd do again? Otis is cool. Oh really, well yeah then she just flushed her career down the toilet w that comment…

james- that is an interesting way to put it. I never thought of it that way. I just wish there was a way she could make a statement that didn’t make her seem so um uh, well crazy?

lea- I’m so mad at that!! So you ve tried the superman, really? So tell me, is Soulja boy any good in bed? I’m just askin’, for a friend…

hex- oh you are so bad…

R- you can never go too far back, people listen to jazz and classical music all the time…

e- okay so few and far between there are SOME notable artists, but damn, the rest is garbage…

slaus- I don’t know some I’d be afraid to bust, like Rihanna’s forehead might bust back!

g- I am the queen of playing out a song lol sexual seduction…

smitty- for real though. There are some artists still out there who are about their love for art, but the rest is frustrating because people buy into what the industry puts out as “music”…

ms. lady- yeah, soulja boy supermanned it!

q- at least they could be spending the money on something more productive, huh. Yeah and I read somewhere that Soulja boys single is no 1 and has gotten like 3 million hits on MS, but his album only went gold…

don- I know I stumbled across his page, I’m feelin’ it. I haven’t heard of Joy, I willhave to check her out thanks…
