I Don't Get It But It's Okay


In college I walked past a guy wearing headphones with music so loud that I wondered how his ear drums were doing. I heard a rap with a voice that I immediately disliked. I thought to myself that the ear phones had to have been the cause, maybe if I heard the real voice of the artist, it wouldn't be annoying at all. I was so wrong. I had stopped by a friend's room and guess what, that voice hit me like a tidal wave on my stomach. I've never heard something so nauseating. "What is that song and who the heck is that?" I almost screamed. I'm not much into rap but I can bear the big names when they do cool music and Eminem is my favorite, don't ask me why. Anyway, I thought I had escaped that rapper for life until I traveled home and in the midst of my cool family, I hear them raving about this rapper. I looked her up and immediately knew why. I still don't think it's her music. It had to do with her looks, I'm sure. Boys and their ever-swaying ideas of what is cool and uncool. I just didn't understand why rapping about things that were unrelated but only rhymed could be interesting to anybody. Then the voice and accent change too, I guess I didn't and still don't get it. The boys seemed like they did and up until till this moment when she shows anywhere you hear something like, "Yeah look at that "ass-et," it's Nicki my main gurl." Umm okay then. I'm yet to understand her appeal but I guess that's not going to happen since I'm not a boy.
