Despite the fact that his bleached skin looks creepy, Vybz Kartel has released a statement to say that he really doesn’t care what you think. “I’m my own man, and as such I do my own thing. When black women stop straightening their hair and wearing wigs and weaves, when white women stop getting lip and butt injections and implants, when bald men stop getting hair transplants, and when people stop getting nose jobs and cosmetic surgery then I’ll stop using the ‘cakesoap’ and we’ll all live naturally ever after. Until then, f–k you all.” Let Vybz live, yo. [Vibe]

Meanwhile, Lil B explained his “based” movement to MTV. “Based music really is just doing what you feel, really letting the beats sink into you and letting the lyrics coat the beat…It’s really just about being yourself, though, and being positive. Doing what you want to do.” To that end, his fans often show their appreciation for his music by offering up their loved ones. “A lot of guys show me love and want me to date their womenIt’s an honor. And I will use that gift and their trust and I will do the right thing.” And by the right thing, he means he will “date” your women and release 8 million new freestyles about cooking. [MTV]
