Fans want Kylie Jenner’s cameo removed from the ‘WAP’ music video

CDmavyAnBZ3 (2)

Friday morning, most of us woke up to the music video for Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s collaboration single and music video “WAP.” I will not include the video here, because it’s dirty AF, but you can see it here. The song and the video is a celebration of women’s sexuality and a celebration of the very simple idea that “women like sex too.” This has apparently upset a lot of men, men who want to believe (?) that women don’t really want sex. Maybe those men just aren’t comfortable seeing women as sentient, sexual beings rather than sexual objects for men’s gratification. I don’t know, it’s been a lot. The video was filmed just days before Tory Lanez shot Megan in both feet, in case anyone is interested in a timeline.

Also “a lot”? The complaints about who was included in the music video. Cardi and Megan look amazing and they’ve got almost all of their stuff hanging out in lots of sexy clothes. They also invited several celebrities to make cameos, like Normani, Rosalia and Sukihana. And… Kylie Jenner. Kylie and Megan are friendly – they were hanging out together on the night Tory Lanez shot Meghan, which we now know was several days after they filmed the music video. No one knows if Kylie’s cameo was Megan’s idea or Cardi’s idea or both, but wow, people are NOT happy about it.

The release of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s collaborative single “WAP” on Friday brought with it an equally vivacious music video, which has since sat at the top of YouTube’s trending page. The video features a slew of famous guests: Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto, Sukihana, Rubi Rose and Kylie Jenner, who makes a dramatic 20-second appearance clad in leopard print. However, some fans aren’t pleased with Jenner’s cameo.

Fans praised Cardi and Megan for spotlighting Black and Brown women, but lamented Jenner’s appearance, who is often accused of appropriating Black culture. Soon enough, a petition appeared on Change.org calling for the removal of Jenner from the video.

Created by the users Nini YouTube, Megan Hotties and Bardo Gangs, the petition’s caption states: “The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone.” Those who signed the petition agree, with one commenting: “I was happily enjoying my daily cup of Brown women until that culture stealing colonizer showed up and made me spill.” Another signee said, “She is a culture vulture who doesn’t remember how her own complexion looks! Down with the culture vultures!” At the time of publication, the petition has more than 50,000 signatures.

Though Cardi did not address Jenner’s cameo specifically, she hinted at the situation on Twitter by writing, “I wanna say thank you to every woman that was a part of my video! The fact that you made time in your schedules means a lot to me! It was so important to me to include different women that are different races and come from different backgrounds, but are so powerful and influential.”

I mean… clearly, Cardi and Megan were totally fine with Kylie being included. Maybe they even had this particular reason for including Kylie, because it would give their fans something to argue about and now people are still talking about “WAP.” But I doubt that was the reason – I bet Cardi simply respects the Kardashian-Jenners’ hustle and money, and I bet Megan just likes Kylie. They’re close in age and Megan seems like a sweet young woman who tries to be friends with everyone. If Thee Stallion and Cardi are okay with her, why all the angst? Hm.

Cardi posted this defense of Kylie (and Kylie-in-the-video) last night – she’s apparently close with Kylie because their husbands/partners are tight and because Cardi genuinely thinks Kylie is a nice person.

    You know who Kris Jenner looks like to me? Ghislaine Maxwell.

  2. Alissa says:

    I thought it was strange that the music video paused to let her walk down the hallway and open a door, but clearly Meg and Cardi are fine with her being in the video and everyone’s reaction to this is ridiculous. I do think that she was in it so prominently in order to get the PR because they knew people would react this way though.

    • Mumbles says:

      You’re probably on to something. When Nightline did a show with Madonna about her “Justify My Love” and Ted Koppel commented to her, this video is getting you a lot of attention, and Madonna said slyly, “Well, lucky lucky me.”

    • AnnaKist says:

      Aw, and there was little Kylie, thinking she was there for her musical and catwalk skills, to imbue the collaboration with real celebrity and star power, since Cardi and the other one could use all the help they can get…

  3. Char says:

    They put Kylie in the video to generate talking and they got what they want. All the other cameos are for people with real talent, they deserved more time, yes, but in the end Kylie is more famous than they are, she has a bigger fanbase and that’s what Cardi and Megan wanted, the likes.

  4. Angel says:

    People have too much time of their hands. Imagine being bothered by a music video.

  5. Nicole r says:

    I don’t like Kylie either and if this video or song was about black women then she wouldn’t belong in it at all. But it isn’t. This video featured other women too. It wasn’t a political statement, wasn’t a commercial, there is no reason for fans to dictate the video.. it’s kind of ridiculous and entitled, like Megan and Cardi need to change their video based on the whim of the public. They are artists.

  6. Slowsnow says:

    I could not care less about K in the video or not.
    However, I care about WAP. My sons were listening to the song and talking about the video as empowering so I was compelled to check it out although I am off the Cardi B train. Meghan’s flow is amazing, the song is meh but ok.
    I’m a little sad about this women empowerment juggernaut. I’ve never felt that doing what men do is empowering: toot their own horns, speaking about their horniness and their sexual attributes… It puts me off a man doing that and it puts me off a woman too.
    I mean if you listen to Myriam Margolies On Graham Norton show even your pubic hair will blush but it is so much more empowering listening to this ageing woman talk about masturbation than this very basic, been-here done-that exposure. Kelys, Salt-and-Peppa, and so many more artists have had such beautiful and sexy takes on this. For me WAP is just a mess and it really embarrasses me to watch it.
    I know I’ll be torn down here but it’s the way I feel. Let me know if it empowers you and makes you feel good? I’d love to know about other people’s take on it.

    • Lightpurple says:

      You aren’t alone. We have had decades now of women strutting around in lingerie to “empower” themselves by reclaiming their sexuality but they look no different than what goes on in old videos from 80s metal bands. Seriously, decades of women doing this. Salt n Peppa, Vanity 6, the Rick James Girls, Madonna, Cristina Aquilera, Beyonce, many, many more. It does not empower me and I usually find it boring.

      • Betsy says:

        This to both you and Slowsnow. I don’t particularly care if women do want to walk around basically naked; it’s not my choice, but let’s not pretend it’s something new or empowering.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      That song and video is not female sexual empowerment. It is totally pandering to men and their porn star, stripper idea of female sexuality. It’s also not a very good song but I hate Cardi B’s style of rap.

    • GipsyMurphy says:

      I’m so glad you have addressed the elephant in the room. I couldn’t give two hoots about Meghan being in that video. For me the overwhelming aspect of the video was the content in total. I felt really uncomfortable watching the overt p231niness and somehow then having to make that fit with being empowered as a woman – which is the message that is being pushed. No, sorry, this has nothing to do with empowerment. It has to do with sales and marketing. I wish we could find another way to empower women in videos without resorting to this.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Salt-N-Pepa, YES!

      • H says:

        I watched the video yesterday because everyone was talking about it. I am not in their age demographic, but I didn’t find the music or rap very good. I thought they were pandering to a male audience. Give me Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop” any day over this. That’s female empowerment.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        @H,

        I watched “Shoop” right after I posted this am, and man, I was just jiggling all over my kitchen, surprised that I still remember EVERY SINGLE WORD!!! Twerkin’ since the early 90s. 🤣

    • Queen Meghan's Hand says:

      Agree. They are pandering to men in the video so how is it ‘empowering’ to women? And Cardi B messed up her flow when she fixed her teeth. The song would have been better if it was just Megan Thee Stallion.

    • ethy says:

      I don’t think it’s empowering but does it have to be? I think the idea that women being raunchy, having fun, being overtly sexy HAS to be sold as “empowering” to be acceptable is just as damaging.

      No I don’t always dress for myself or other women, sometimes I dress for men. SO WHAT? Not everything needs to be empowering.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Yeah, I never thought imitating the worst of male behavior was a good way to go. Women don’t need to copy men to be strong & empowered, they have their own strength.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        This doesn’t come close to at all the worst of male behavior though. It’s not honor crime, rape, pedophilia, murder, domestic violence, or a hate crime. It’s two grown women talking about sex- something that, last I checked, is not an inherently bad or unusual phenomenon. People sure seem to see openly sexual women as dangerous women, for all the talk of how they aren’t really rebelling against anything.

  7. Alexis says:

    I grew up on Lil Kim and at the risk of sounding elderly, this video is crass and disgusting and the song is horrible. I mean, SO BAD.

    • Teresa says:

      I feel like Mugatu from Zoolander. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. I think it’s been a long time since it was thought women didn’t like sex. And this song is not empowering to me in the least. It’s still just flaunting that one aspect of women. I am a hole that is gushy but the kicker is I like my gushy hole? OK then. Some of the lyrics I can see being sort of empowering ish if you squint your eyes and are drunk but the gist of the video is two women singing about their vagina.

      • minal says:

        I’m with you Teresa. I have a daughter, and I don’t know that I’d want her to see this kind of behaviour as empowering. This is raunch, not empowerment. Although that word (empowerment) seems to be used to justify all sorts of bad behaviour these days. “If men get away with, why shouldn’t women…blah, blah…” Should my daughter view Elizabeth Holmes’ behaviour as empowering? Ivanka Trump’s? After all, men have been doing the same forever, right?

      • Amanduh says:

        YES!!! To all of this! I grew up on Lil Kim as well and this is just too much for me. “I am a gushy hole but I like my gushy hole” sums it up perfectly.

    • Alexis says:

      @teresa I 100% agree…I mean, Lil Kim could rap about sex and still specify that she’s NOT a whore, I don’t understand how this is empowering. It’s just gross and ugly and talentless.

      • Chimney says:

        Gross and ugly?? There’s nothing gross or ugly about either of these women. Nor is there anything gross or ugly about a woman’s full-throated appreciation of sex.

      • Alexis says:

        @chimney…that’s your opinion and I clearly stated mine as well. Gross, ugly and talentless. Take that to mean the women, the song, the video, or all of the above.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Salt-N-Pepa, YES!

    • Tiff says:

      I felt like this entire video was an homage to Lil Kim! The fountain was in the iconic Lil Kim squat pose, the colors of the outfits and the wigs, mixing fashion and rap, all were all throw backs to Kim, and the lyrics were basically a mash up of Kim’s songs! Big Mama Thang, Queen Bitch, The Jumpoff… and basically every Kim song ever written has similar lyrics

    • detritus says:

      My neck, my back…

      Can anyone of a certain age finish that one? I haven’t listened to this one yet but we had our raunchy stuff too

  8. Also Ali says:

    I haven’t seen the full video but an edited version with Viola Davis on twitter made my morning.

    #HowToGetAwayWithWAP.

  9. Lightpurple says:

    Somebody photo-shopped Viola Davis’s face onto an image of Kylie from the video and Viola tweeted it last night.

  10. tifzlan says:

    My truth is that I am definitely way too prudish for this song. I like the video though, or rather the neon purple and chartreuse parts. I am mostly just happy seeing Megan thrive.

  11. Alexandria says:

    I’m very amazed that no bad publicity can bring down the Ks. It’s incredible. Not saying this is even bad per se but it looks like they are here to stay and the second gen will continue the wave. Even the current pop stars don’t have this longevity except maybe Beyonce.

  12. Mindy_Dopple says:

    My feelings on this song aren’t complicated. I LOVE this song! It’s totally on brand for Cardi and Megan. Coming from a Hustler background and Megan ‘hot girl summer’ THIS makes total sense. Here’s my breakdown. Keep in mind that Megan is also continuing her education and has given scholarships to women in need. Yes this is raunchy and outrageously but I love the message of know your worth. I was watching Little Women and I know it’s a reach but there was Amy’s speech about everything for women is an economic proposition. This is the nail on that coffin, if women are continued to be paid 77 cents to the dollar, we have to make the dollar up somehow? Leverage your worth ladies! I hope all this made sense. I’m still half asleep. This song is my jam!

    • Otaku fairy says:

      +1.

    • Slowsnow says:

      It’s nice to have your take on it. Not sure I am convinced of this empowerment – more convinced by you as a person but it might help nuance my view.

    • Ann says:

      I like this take on it. You summed up the smart points perfectly. I am not in love with this song but I don’t hate it. I also like the video, including Kyle’s cameo. The whole video is so silly and so raunchy and so, so much gratuitous ass. Honestly it was delightful!

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      It’s not my fave Cardi or Meg song but I loved the video. I thought it was fun.

  13. Otaku fairy says:

    There were definitely controlling, misogynistic men losing their shit over this video, calling female commenters who disagreed with their outrage sl*ts and stuff, and even victim-blaming Meg and other women over it. But there were also women who still buy into men’s whole ‘modesty will save us’ myth, and who feel entitled to demonize other women for being sexually immodest, helping them out as always. Prudes were having an almost comical meltdown over at Tragic Mic’s and other places too. “Debauchery and Perversion!” “Americans need to remember women brought down Rome by being too wild with their vaginas!” (Usually people who bring up Rome like that are also homophobes). “We need to do better for our daughters!” “I hate the fact that some expect us to respectful to loose women now”, and other Kanye-approved rants.

    • Mindy_Dopple says:

      I took a very interesting course called God and Sexuality a couple of years ago, but the fear of women knowing their power has been around since the dawn of time. Women were the deities being worshiped because of our life giving abilities until men decided that was too dangerous or nonsensical. We are full of complex duality that allures men (NoT aLl MeN) but also scares the crap out of them. I mean, we’re still having this conversation while men (elected officials and other) are still actively trying to control our reproductive rights. ALL WHILE THE SAME MEN (same elected officials and other) REFUSE TO WEAR MASKS. This is all to say, the reaction to this video is very interesting. Also who cares about Kylie Jenner? Yes she’s a culture vulture. Everyone knows this but I can believe she’s also a nice person who made friends with friendly girls who put her in their music video for the marketability and audience gain. I’m not mad at the game. Do I wish they would have just left her out? Yes.

      • livealot says:

        @Mindy_Dopple you hit the nail on the head. Humans will tear down anything they deem too powerful and women (and acertain race but I won’t go there) CANT own /control/ or know their worth because it may lead to a “takeover”. Being vulgar is not my cup of tea but I won’t strip women the right to express their femininity however they choose. I may have been conditioned by the male patriarchy to be modest /hide my sexuality and they conditioned to believe this vulgarity is female empowerment. It is what it is. We each should have the right to express our femininity without condemning the other

    • Jules says:

      Oh no, it’s time for Keyboard Warrior to preach to her minions.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Probably the same men (and women) who would turn around and support Trump regardless of how trashy or outright criminal he is — multiple affairs, partying with Epstein, making comments about his own daughters, multiple rape accusations. The double standard!

  14. Cate says:

    It’s raunchy and fun. I don’t feel empowered but in for a penny in for a pound. It’s not new or groundbreaking. But it should be a non issue. If the ladies want to get nasty it should be a whatevs moment at this point. The fact that everyone in 2020 is still up in arms over shock value when we have practically seen every inch of Madonna’ s body is sad.

    • Kate says:

      Yep. I just listened to it and lol’d a couple times at Cardi’s lyrics. I love Megan’s flow. I listen to it the same way I listen to all hip hop music – with my “how do these lyrics align with my personal values” filter turned off. If you’re not a hip hop fan and are just going to dissect a song for its message you’re probably going to find something objectionable every time. Kylie’s cameo is dumb but whatever the song is good.

  15. Marie says:

    Not gonna lie, the controversy about Kylie made me watch the video. So it works? Lol.

  16. Karen Johnston (n'Laoghaire) says:

    I find the song a bit shocking, but love it. The video is more than it appears to be and full of sly messaging….watch them leaving after their pretend ‘shock’ at the end. Cardi has that Lucy thing going on. There’s this deep male voice in the background, intoning “there’s some whores in this house” – in a punishing, shaming way, and I’m not sure if I haven’t heard it before it some old movie that would do just that. Women like Cardi B, Meg, Nicki M., and even Queen Bey, are the owners of their clearly acknowledged popularity due to their sexuality – images and actions – from the men who have profited by it, and shamed women for it, for centuries. Eons.

    Kylie, in the same leopard print as Cardi…coincidence? I see a lot packed into that little scene. You could go Master’s level trying to interpret it or just enjoy it.

    I’m down with it.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Same. Also, there’s a need to be careful about making the fact that many men are sexually aroused by something the reason for saying it’s wrong, or not empowering, for other women to do it. Why do we still automatically give more weight to the fact that there are men who are turned on by something some women are doing, than we do the fact that there are men who control, slut-shame, and victim-blame? Being bothered that something puts lust in a man’s eye isn’t exactly groundbreaking.

  17. Laalaa says:

    First of all, I really didn’t expect to like the song, but omg I love it, this is pure girl power! Feminism at its best. And the colour scheme, omg

    As for Kylie, I fully expected when she pushed the door she was going to sing Rise and shine #missedopportunity

    • JJ says:

      If this is feminism at its best, that is truly sad.

      • Amanduh says:

        Right!? This is what feminism would look like if men got to define it. But hey, if everyone who made this this video/song is truly proud of themselves and feels good about it then it doesn’t matter.

      • Laalaa says:

        I see it like this:
        In this video and song they talk about everything they want.

        To me, feminism is every woman having the right to be whatever they want, want whatever they want and get it. If that is being explicit to the point people call them vulgar, so be it. And while I would never ever behave like that myself, I can’t judge women who are!
        Their body, their choice. To me that is feminism.

  18. Ennie says:

    I don’t care much for rap either way, so, not watching the video, might watch the part where people put Viola’s head on K’s body, tho.
    it’s good that there are prominent, successful female rappers, but to give this K Person more credence and legitimise her? That I am against.
    It’s been talked at length here in CB how much of a family of culture vultures the K klan is, so I dislike that. She has a partner and a child who are of a different ethnic background, that doesn’t justify her making money trying to look like one of them.
    I imagine if K was trying to live and make money off a different culture, it would be plain wrong, too, and ridiculous.

  19. ME says:

    I think it’s because they made Kylie seem like the “main feature”. The music even stopped when she appeared on camera lol. This girl can’t sing, act, or even model properly. Why was she there? I am sure Cardi has had plenty of people be “nice” to her and her daughter, no one else came to mind huh? I think we are all sick of this family. They won’t go away no matter the controversy, no matter the sh*t they say or do. I know I’m not helping by commenting on this story but people want it known they are sick of this family popping their heads into every door and window lol. Oh and I see in the video poor Kylie still has her “period boobs”. LMAO.

  20. Michael says:

    As a guy, I do not know if women find this song empowering however I can tell you that the song and video have gotten an insane amount of attention and is going to debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. I do like to watch reaction videos on Youtube and have been paying close attention to the women who react to this. So far every one of them has been very shocked and very delighted at the video so that tells me a lot.

    I think I like the song better than most. Great hook. Won’t be singing along though

  21. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I watched most of it, but I can’t say I’m a Cardi B fan, so that’s why I stopped after the KJ pause (her voice and rap style annoy me).
    I like Megan Thee Stallion- I like her voice & her music- she sings about sex all the time, so it’s not like the content put me off… it just seems so basic and juvenile when Cardi B just keeps repeating “gushy.”

    YMMV. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Leslie says:

      Megan has a really nice voice.

    • livealot says:

      @notsocialbutterfly Yea I like cardi’s personality but her flow sounds juvenile and grates me sometimes. I just laugh at her parts now since I can’t escape it whereas Meg’s I genuinely enjoy.

  22. Noodle says:

    I think I read somewhere that the fight between Meghan and Tory was somehow connected to Kylie? Am I misremembering this?

  23. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    I think less of Cardi B because she included Kylie in such a prominent role in the video. So what if this white lady was nice to you and your daughter at her child’s birthday party? That is BASIC ETIQUETTE. You were her guests. ???
    Anybody else bothered by that? Cardi becoming enamored by this culture vulture white woman because she was ‘nice’ to her once or a few times?

  24. Leslie says:

    I, personally, don’t find sexuality explicit media like this empowering because I want to be viewed by the world not for my sexuality or whether I fit a gender identity/presentation mold, but for my personality and accomplishments. ETA: This is just my personal preference and I’m just commenting on the “this is supposed to be empowering” aspect of the video.

    For the Kylie bit, I understand the outrage, kind of. Kylie’s bit was so long and unnecessary. If she was grouped with the others at the end it would have made sense, but why stop the song and video for a full 25 seconds for a cameo?

  25. Tiff says:

    Gen X here and raised with Lil Kim and Trina. Why folks are all of a sudden clutching their pearls is confusing to me, especially from those who claim to be Lil Kim fans because Kim’s influence and impact is all over this video/song! Did people actually listen to the Hardcore album? Magic Stick? How many licks? The jump off? Let’s not forget the Methods of Mayhem video where she is literally riding a giant cock. Why do people act like we weren’t at Freaknic dancing to My Neck, My Back? Leave the kids alone! Let them enjoy themselves! Jesus!

  26. Atti says:

    I dont think the song sounds good. But I love Cardi and Megan, and if they wanted their friend in it then… why not? Black and white people seriously cant be friends?

    • ennie says:

      I think it’s not that she’s white per se, they could have put a blonde thin friend, whomever, but Kylie and her family in general have profited of black culture and looks. The criticism is beyond that.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Like Ennie said, I think it’s legitimate that’s people would dislike cultural appropriation. The Kardashian-Jenners have done a lot of that, darkening their skin (Kylie does this ALL the time and so does Kim), styling their hair, getting plastic surgery / extreme workouts, and dressing all in order to look as African / Black as possible. When — They’re not Black. It’s not their culture. On top of that, multiple times, with Kim’s “Kimono” line or with Khloe and Kendall and Kylie copying exactly the work of less well known Black female designers for their own lines, they’ve literally tried to take material objects and wealth from other cultures and from Black women specifically. It’s problematic. People can call it out. No ones morally obligated to love something that’s being sold, music video or whatever it is. In this case it’s actually offensive because Black culture and Black people have been denigrated and culture isn’t a costume.

  27. Charfromdarock says:

    Cardi & Megan are smart, they knew having Kylie would generate more attention and more sales.

  28. DiegoInSF says:

    Amazing how people still don’t see how any publicity is good publicity, the Ks love these petitions because it’s better to have 50k or whatever people against you than no one caring. I love the song, it’s a bop and I liked all cameos.

    • Jules says:

      Yes to this, there is nothing shocking here, it’s the oldest play in the book. Try to shock and create controversy, push the line a little further, all to make money. It’s so transparent it’s absurd.

  29. Chimney says:

    Wow “there’s some prudes in this house!” Honestly surprised at the pearl clutching. I like the video I love the song. I don’t understand the arguments against it being empowering? Theres nothing wrong with enjoying sex and being good at it, ladies! Sex can’t be squeaky clean and singing about it doesnt have to be coded, subtle, or family friendly.

    Kylie’s appearance completely tanks the flow of the song. Seeing her weird AI face/body made it briefly seem like a horror movie.

  30. Mina_Esq says:

    Us women need to stick together. This is a trick as old as America – use race to pin women against one another when their association threatens patriarchy. These are all beautiful, financially successful women. I’m glad they are associating and supporting one another. It builds their power, it strengthens their brands. The nerve of trying to dictate Cardi and Meg what they can and shouldn’t do in their own video!

  31. Naddie says:

    Watched the video yeterday and:
    1- Cardi B is insanely funny. Just the little run she’s done in the end made me crack up, and she didn’t say a word.
    2- When Kylie opened the door I automatically heard “rise and shine”.
    3- Women can find the video of bad taste without being called pearl clutchers. If it’s gonna be like that i might assume everyone who’s defending it as libfem.

  32. EM says:

    I mean, I don’t necessarily think it’s empowering. But come on. The boob fountain? The boob/butt doorknockers? It’s funny, and funny in a way that I don’t think women get to be all the time, if that makes sense? They wanted to make a song that you would shake your butt to, while your man/person that you’re dancing with is thinking “oh my god, she’s a sex goddess”. And they did. And it’s fun to listen to (for me, in my headphones where no one else can hear me).

  33. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Welp here’s a resolution to the problem: when these people make their OWN music videos they can put -or not -put whoever they want in them. Problem solved.
    Also I find a lot of ghe comments on tjis thread about empowerment are missing the point. No one gets to decide what is empowering for another woman. What YOU may find empowering someone else may not. And vice versa. The POINT is that every woman is allowed to express what makes them feel empowered. Of this song doesn’t “empower” you that’s fine. Then it’s simply not for you. No need to drag Cardi or Meg or any other woman who does.

    This years ‘Anaconda’ and just as corny. Megan is multi talented, It just isn’t that good a song or video.I preferred Cardi’s ‘Money’ song to this. The Klans inclusion was Klearly for publicity. Kylie’s out of proportion body and wonky ‘cry face’ always makes me laugh.

    Kylie looked amazing, she did what she was supposed to do and that is bring views. The song is terrible and if I ever caught my son or daughter repeating that song it’s trash. I want to see them come out with a new concept how about smart rap them being sexy and talking about deals, dollars and hard work then throw in some cameos from women, but not about WAP.

    The best thing about WAP, for me, was Twitter guessing what the Kidzbop version will be like ie. There’s chores in this house lol!

    If Megan and Cardi want Kylie in their video that’s fine with me. I’m not the music video police.

    Any bets on Kylie helping finance the video?

    controversy aside, can we all agree gushy is as bad as moist?

    Yes, women want sex too. But these girls are doing exactly was sexist guys want. They reduce themselves to their bodies and sex. Megan is really talented. She doesn’t even need to do that. You can be sensual and sexy without showing everything and having all the plastic surgery out there.

      There are sexist men who want women to be classy in public too though, but we aren’t told to stop reducing ourselves to that. At least two sexist male public figures have already clutched their pearls about this video and the women’s morals: James P. Bradley, a republican congressman, and yesterday Cee lo Green, a guy who drugged and sexually assaulted a woman.

    Celebrating plastic fake bodies disgusts me, kylie Jenner is a freak with zero talent.
