Lil Wayne to MJ mourners: "Girl I got that dope dick"
We at Gimme Noise find the defendant guilty of being a large type douchebag.
At the risk of quoting Dilbert, someone definitely didn't get the memo.
While Sunday's BET awards were being hastily repurposed as a tribute to Michael Jackson, Lil Wayne was rehearsing lines like "Ima get in and on that pussy" and the more perplexing "I like a long haired thick red bone."
As could be imagined, the annual BET Awards ceremony faced a big last minute change-- the death of Michael Jackson could hardly go unrecognized. Memorials were quickly erected, video montages spliced together, and speeches written so swiftly that you couldn't shake the feeling that, perhaps, someone had stockpiled these materials some time ago in case, you know, the unthinkable should happen.
And then came Lil Wayne, in a five minute flurry of such bad taste and poor judgment one can only assume that he was high or simply confused. He performed his new single "Every Girl," which is just what you might think-- a proclamation of Wayne's desire to fuck every girl in the world, an explanation of his sexual prowess, and several criteria such girls must meet in order to get his "dope dick."
In light of the somber tone of the evening, the performance would have been gauche enough. But onstage with him at the time were several pre-teen girls, who danced in loose choreography and flocked around Lil Wayne like a prepubescent harem. Don't believe us? Check the video.
We know Lil Wayne's no Einstein. But this intersection of bad coincidences is almost too great to ignore-- as if it was the product of some sinister mastermind hell bent on turning M.J.'s memorial into a scandal that would suit the King of Pop like a tailored death shroud.
But, more than likely, Lil Wayne's just a disconnected dumbass strung out on Robotussin.
