Not so fast

Af­ter be­ing MIA on the mu­sic scene for a while, reggae artiste Etana has gained new-found pop­u­lar­ity and for all the wrong rea­sons. The self pro­claimed ‘Strong One’, in an in­ter­view with An­thony Miller for ER, has con­fessed that she is a sup­porter of US pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Don­ald Trump. Of course, this has hit a sour note with, dare I say, ev­ery straight-think­ing Ja­maican who keeps up with the US pres­i­den­tial race. In her de­fence, Etana has said that the in­ter­view was edited and her points not justly aired. The way I see it, she made a boo boo and now she hopes to kiss it and make it all go away – it won’t. On an­other note, An­thony Miller just al­ways seems to get th­ese con­tro­ver­sial sto­ries, right?!

About that pic ...

Dance­hall artiste D’An­gel, has come out swing­ing at cy­ber­at­tack­ers who were not amused by a pic­ture she had posted of her­self scan­tily clad and en­gaged in con­ver­sa­tion with her son on set of a mu­sic video. Dance­hall’s first lady says her son un­der­stands her job and that he is the off­spring of two en­ter­tain­ers. I ad­mit, we’ve all seen our moth­ers naked around the house, but some­thing about the pic­ture made me un­com­fort­able. I get that it’s her job, but what it en­tails in that spe­cific mo­ment (lots of sex­ual sug­ges­tions, lyrics, etc) was not age-ap­pro­pri­ate for her son and he just doesn’t need to see mommy in that light.
