I wouldn't go to this racist b**ches concert if you paid me. When she made those comments about not wanting white people to buy her music years ago, she got her wish. Now look at her. She hasn't done anything good for years, has a reputation as being a kook and people are supposed to pay $55 a ticket to see her? Well if they do, they're just as nutty as this broad. She lost her talent, then her mind long ago.
AMEN

Preach it my brother! She bit the hand that fed her. Hope no whites go to her concert and supports her racist self. I've heard some blacks at work talking about they can't wait to see her. Figures huh?

Could you imagine if a white artist had said that he/she wished black people would not buy their music?

I'm sure there would be a HUGE uproar with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton leading the fray. There would be calls for boycotts and public apologies. Strange isn't it, how black entertainers can get away with racist remarks, comments and so-called comedy acts but let a white person try to do something like that and all hell breaks lose? What's up with that?

You know, I've seen this article before too but I remember SEEING her make those remarks in a TV interview back in the 90s. It wasn't on MTV either because I didn't have cable then. I really can't remember what TV show it was on, but I certainly remember seeing the interview because I had been a fan of hers until I saw it. She was sitting on a stool, facing an reporter. Her hair was in long braids, pulled back in a lose ponytail and she had a pretty brown shimmery shirt on. Yes, I DO remember this. She said that had she known that so many white people would buy her album, she would never have recorded it in the first place because so many white people are racist and two-faced. She went on to say that she had some so-called white friends who supported her to her face but called her racial slurs behind her back and that she knew most white people felt the same way about black people. Friends to your face, but racist behind your back. So you see she DID make these racist remarks because I SAW it!

Oh yeah...in this interview, when the reporter asked if she wasn't concerned that she would be upsetting a lot of her whites fans with her comments, she replied that she loves her black people and would continue to make music for them.

It's no different than black rappers using the N-word in their songs.

You idiots are playing into this way too much. If your a music lover, you should be able to appreciate her music for what it is. Her first album was amazing. I'm sure if you were offered the $55 ticket for free you would attend. Also, if she wants to make music for her own people... more power to her. She's an artist and has the freedom to express herself what ever way she wants... Suckas!

That's the thing though. She doesn't perform like she used to. Now she just makes political and social statements through her "music". I used to love her music and she has a helluva voice. But I don't want to be preached to about social or racial injustice during a concert I pay to see. I want to be entertained by a singer. So for me, I'll pass.
