DID KYLIE USE THE ‘N WORD’??
5th May 2016
So the whole internet has been debating if Kylie used the ‘N’ word in a song that she has featured on. She joined friends Justine Skye, Jordyn Woods, and rapper Lil Yachty on Burberry Perry’s new song, “Beautiful Day.” ( sampling classic Mr. Rogers theme song)
Right at the end of the track you hear Kylie and her mates laughing and singing along to the chorus. Kylie sings a few words and it sounds like she used the ‘N Word’ while rapping along. However her mate Jordyn took to Twitter to respond saying it wasn’t Kylie but instead her and Justine who used the word.
I have a feeling that some people will still think the worse and say that Jordyn is covering up for Kylie, I hope she didn’t use it, and it’s the truth.
Recently one of my friends argued why it was ok for her as a while person to use the word. She blamed it on music and club life. Saying where she was raised everyone uses that word in clubs when rap music comes on, especially with Jay Z & Kanye’s Paris track.
It took us a couple of days of falling out for her to eventually realise it was kinda wrong and disgusting for her to argue that she should be able to use a racist term because of hearing it in music. Sometimes there is a blurred line between music and friendships where we feel it’s ok to use certain words in our circle of friends, but remember the ‘N word’ is very powerful and offensive to most people especially when you are not black using it.
