She says like the first syllable and then blurs it out. I think its gross when non-black people say it but I feel like people are freaking out about this just WANT a reason to be pissed off

Her tweets are so cringe. Shouldn't have even apologised.

The fact she distorted it meant a clear message was already there when recording it

More of this PC bullshit with artists and their music, tuh

Smoke Drink Break Up cover has literally always been one of my most listened songs from her as I've said in this thread dating back 2 years... What fucking LOSER just found it on soundcloud and decided to be fake offended?  :toofunny:  :toofunny:

 

She goes OUT OF HER WAY in order TO censor it  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  LOSERS

she shouldn't have said it even if its censored. it makes her look bad. I'm honestly surprised more people on LB aren't throwing fits about it--yall usually throw fits over anything

I'm sorry but Dua Lipa is not "white passing" take a look at her and most people will guess middle eastern.

Isn't really an issue of "white passing celeb"

My issue is here its a COVER. Covers have lyrics. If you wanna be mad at the lyrics blame the song writers

Dua went to the lengths to censor the word from the song. And you guys are STILL mad. What the fuck does she need to do? Just put the instrumental over the whole verse?

Exactly white gold what is she accountable for? Just saying the n-word is far from something to be held accountable for. Let's hold most American black artists for incorporating that in their music

You're seeing this as some sort of race issue. Its not. She sang a lyric and decided to censor a word because of the connotation it has

edit: many members here will call each other "girl" and go by female pronouns even when they are male. Try saying that in Japan.

Connotations, people

Black artists can use the word if they want as much as white artists can. Tell me that Dua Lipa censoring :) in a verbatim cover is somehow less racist than black artist Jay Z calling out black people as ":)" in Story of OJ

I can't believe "light skinned people shouldnt say the n word" is a controversial opinion to have on LB lmao I guess they're called Reycists for a reason


I'm honestly not even mad at Dua--I'm just embarrassed for her. what's alarming is that some of you are so quick to defend someone using a racial slur

Maybe its the conservative American in me that cries whenever freedom of speech is shunned because of so called "racism".

Nobody here is for racism, were just not here for the shitstorm because of verbatim lyrics. Also nobody even thinks this is racist. It goes hand in hand

Apparently if Dua was like, idk, 10% black its OK? Or is 20% better? To judge the use of a word over a ethnicity sounds more racist to me

Honestly I couldn't care if Dua was using that in the [wrong] tone or not; its her mouth and her music. There's plenty of racists out there and someone using one word is the least of my concerns.

If its so bad her using this one word let's boycott the fuck out of, ruin her career
