I don't get it.
Maybe I'm too old, or too rural, or just too uncool.
I don't understand the Hollywood-style excitement about "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" winning the Oscar for Best Song.
Why accept this with a wink and a nod?
Maybe it's supposed to be a farce.
Juxtaposed with the reality of pimping and prostitution, it doesn't seem cute to me.
My friend kelly has done exactly that in a powerful post, putting the lyrics of the song alongside the testimony of those oppressed and destroyed by the business of prostitution.
It is worth your time to read what she has written.
