Say What! — Jill Scott Talks Interracial Dating + More

In a recent column in Essence, singer Jill Scott spoke her mind about interracial dating. “You know the moment when you realize that fine, accomplished brother is with a White woman? Let’s call it ‘the wince,'” Scott wrote. “My new friend is handsome, African-American, intelligent and seemingly wealthy. He is an athlete, loves his momma, and is happily married to a White woman. I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped. But something in me just knew he didn’t marry a sister. Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit…wince. I didn’t immediately understand it. My face read happy for you. My body showed no reaction to my inner pinch, but the sting was there, quiet like a mosquito under a summer dress.” The article is pretty interesting, definitely worth a read. Pretty sure that people of all races/nationalities feel this way, though, to some degree. [Essence]

Deep house producer Kaskade claims Lady Gaga is finally making dance music mainstream. “There was a little creeping up there in the ’80s and early ’90s with Deee-Lite, and Madonna was voguing, and it was like, ‘Oh my gosh, is this gonna happen?’ ” he said. “But the timing wasn’t right yet. When Lady Gaga did it, we were all like, ‘Cool.’ This really is our time.” Uh…Daft Punk? [MTV]
