Confession Bear time here: I don't think she's a musical genius or anything, but I don't think Nicki Minaj is bad. She seems to put a bit more energy and originality into her schtick than the average cookie-cutter hip-hop/pop singer.

I have a problem with a lot of the male hip-hopperati and their attitude to women and gay people, thinking that shooting people is cool etc., but I don't often find a female hip-hop artist who has a lousy attitude to women. Men, yes; women, no.

I listened to that 'Stupid Hoe' song quite a few times, looking for the redeeming post-modern, ironic, self-deprecating undertone, and I'm afraid I just didn't find it. Just another boring misogynistic rapper, but with more interesting makeup and hair.

Correct me if I'm wrong, though...

Max Bygraves has finally snuffed it. Oh Death, where is thy sting?

But I've just heard a rumour that Cliff Richard is still alive. :shocked:

Terry Nutkins, TV wildlife presenter aged 66. I always thought he was a nice man and I remember him because he had his finger bitten off by an Otter.

I loved Terry Nutkins. He was a staple of my youth, watching him on children's TV. A sad loss.

We need a new thread...Guess who they've dug up?

Richard III :drinking:

He was innocent of murdering the princes in my opinion and had he lived would have made a good King...lets hope his bones show he was no Shakespearean Hunchback and that he went down fighting.

Apparently Richard's Bones (if they indeed ARE his bones) show that he definitely went down fighting but he did have a crooked spine.
