Bad Vibes

Why doesn’t it surprise me that a fight broke out during the taping of the Vibe Awards scheduled to air tonight (sans the melee).

I think it’s about time that the gangsta rappers begin to learn that you can easily market a thug image without actually behaving like a thug. Take a lesson from politicians. It’s all about selling an image not actually becoming the image.

“It’s really important that we don’t take a negative incident like this and do away with the awards,” said Suge Knight (always a tempered voice of reason).

Do away with the awards? If this trend keeps up, they’ll need to have an awards show specifically for these kinds of incidents.

In other, much more positive, news from the Vibe Awards, there was Tyra’s dress.

Concentration is important!
