Megan Thee Stallion slams 'WAP' critics
14 August 2020 | Art and Entertainment
Megan Thee Stallion has slammed men hating on her raunchy Cardi B collaboration 'WAP' after CeeLo Green took aim at the “salacious” rappers.
The Savage hitmaker took to Twitter to take on men who have mocked the rappers after they unleashed the explicit track and its accompanying video - which sees Kylie Jenner and themselves strut around in eye-popping lingerie.
She wrote: “Lol, dudes will scream “slob on my k***” word for word and crying about WAP. Bye, lil' boy. (sic)”
The comment came after CeeLo - who had a song with the title F*** You in 2010, which was also known as Forget You - said the likes of Nicki Minaj should be using their platform to be role models to their young fans, while he also took aim at Megan and Cardi.
CeeLo called modern pop music “sheer savagery” before going in on the chart-toppers.
In an interview with Far Out magazine, he bemoaned: “A lot of music today is very unfortunate and disappointing on a personal and moral level.
“There was once a time when we were savvy enough to code certain things. We could express to those it was meant for with the style of language we used. But now music is shameless, it is sheer savagery.
“It's problematic, we suffer from it because there are those who have nothing to do with it, but it is assumed of everyone. You have the 'Heads of State', like Nicki Minaj or someone who is up there in accolade: Success, visibility, a platform to influence. Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.”
The 45-year-old singer then hailed them attention seekers. And while he understands they are trying to promote “divine femininity”, he believes they are doing so at a “cost”.
He continued: “Attention is also a drug and competition is around... Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position.
“I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all, but it comes at what cost?”
'WAP', which stands for 'Wet A** P***y', features a flurry of sexual innuendos and has received a mixed reaction from fans and critics alike, but aims to spread a message of female empowerment.
