Kim Kardashian Justin Bieber Miley Cyrus Diddy and Gwyneth Paltrow controversy can’t compare to Nicki Minaj Summer Jam

By DiMarkco Chandler

Controversy comes in all sizes shapes, and forms. In recent months, weeks and days, we have been fed one celebrity controversy or another simply to build the value of a radio show, television broadcast or newspaper; and that’s ok as long as it’s real and important. I mean, not everything that a mega star does should be represented as news. Nevertheless, as long as we the viewer or listeners are buying, media businesses will keep selling.

As I sift through some of the more recent celebrity controversial moments and events, I can’t help but to laugh a bit because for the most part, they are funny. I mean, look at Kim Kardashian; she puts on a fake wedding and we all are surprised over this so-called controversy that we break our necks, and of course we break rating records just to catch a glimpse of the goddess  in small bit role on a show many of us have never watched. I’m talking about “drop dead diva.”

Than you take Justin Bieber. He gets into an apparently minor altercation with a photographer and immediately following this so-called assault, we hear that Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is investigating the pop star as if it’s some major interruption in his life.  No, it’s not. The altercation is merely some everyday type incident. You go to the mall; someone blocks your car as you are trying to leave; you get out and have some words and then you’re off to your next destination. It’s that simple.

Next we hear that Miley Cyrus is anorexic simply because we see some picture of her that looks as though she is not eating three meals a day. What a life.

Then there is the so called Diddy controversy where some are complaining that because the music mogul has amassed great wealth, it is unfair for his son, Justin Combs, to get a free ride (scholarship) at UCLA. What a controversy. I’ll take this one any day.

Finally, this week, we were introduced to the recent Gwyneth Paltrow controversy. Word is that she tweeted the N-Word. Well what she did is tweet a picture of her on stage at the Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” concert in Paris with the letters “Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh http://say.ly/ySc3rTP.” The tweet was referring to the duo’s hit single. And Paltrow immediately clarified this fact. No Controversy.

But if it’s recent celeb controversy you’re looking for, you don’t need to go any further than the Nicki Minaj, Funkmaster Flex episode that occurred this past Sunday at Hot 97’s Summer Jam.  Funkmaster Flex angrily said the following: “Tune in to me tomorrow at 7 o’clock. I’m gonna ruin a career.” Now that statement seems to me to be quite controversial. It almost sounds life threatening if I did not know any better. The Funkmaster was upset over the fact that Nicki Manaj did not show up for the annual hip-hop festival despite being billed as one of its headliners.  No I don’t know about you, but it sounds like a legal dispute. But I’ll continue because if you don’t already know (most of this is at nj.com), Minaj’s boss at Young Money Entertainment, Lil Wayne, learned about a comment made about a Minaj song by Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg right before Summer Jam began. The comment upset Lil Wayne to the extent that he prohibited all the artists on his label from performing at the concert. Ok now you get it, this is a real controversy.

Need I continue down this line of reason any further? I don’t think so. I think that you are smart enough to get it now.
