To append Karl Marx, celebrity “is the opiate of the masses.”
Tossing aside any “right to free speech,” rappers 2 Live Crew were prosecuted on obscenity charges and a Federal District judge declared their 1989 album “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” obscene in June 1990. 2 Live Crew performed songs from the album including “Me So Horny” and were prosecuted for obscenity. Record store clerks who sold copies of the album were arrested. Fast-forward to 2013.
With all the media attention thrust upon (no pun intended) Hannamontanna, I respectfully suggest Miley next “perform” a re-make of the single smash “Me So Horny” before the Legion of Decency is resurrected. (In 2008, it was ranked number 83 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.)
Miley could add it to her resume.
