Is it true Missy admitted she was in love with Aaliyah like Timbo did? I can’t find anything when I search for it but people swear up and down she said it. I hope she didn’t.

I been reflecting on Aaliyah’s career a lot. Stuff I didn’t notice as being creepy I now recognize as such. Like, she recorded and promoted an album of slow jams when she was 16 and 17 respectively. And then we got adults talking about how they fell in love with her at first sight while writing pseudo sexual songs for her to sing. And Jay-Z was trying to holler in the late 90s to while she was underaged. And this isn’t taking into account the R Kelly stuff that doesn’t even need to be mentioned at this point. Only Dame treated her right, and they started dating when she was 20 and he 29. Nobody did her right. And her creepy ass uncle trying to keep her catalog off of streaming as “repentant” only hurts her legacy.

Yeah there was a lot of creepiness around her back then. Idk why specifically. I guess she did seem older than she was ? That is no excuse whatsoever but I just wonder why people felt okay to speak about her in certain ways which they wouldn't speak about other people her age. Maybe because she passed too people feel like they can just let out all of their thoughts with no backlash....? It's just strange/sad

Oh and an album called age ain't nothin but a number, too??? So creepy

A lot of it has to do with how we talk a out black wines. We’re sexualized from a young age. But I think a ton of it stemmed from R Kelly. People looked at their relationship and assumed she must have been down with other men, so they had a chance too. Like, I wonder if Brandy and Monica, her same age peers, got the amount of shit she did.

is the streaming thing...what?
Is that the reason?

It's bizarre that her catalog, which isn't big at all, can't be found digitally anywhere really. Whether purchasing or streaming.

Except "Age Aint..."

I don't get why the family wouldn't want the extra revenue...

I'm not into their tv show. I mean, 'get the bag' as the youths say, but everything about it is off. The whole thing is too "produced".
I feel like something closer to Desus & Mero's Vice would have worked WAY better.

They are surprisingly awkward and self-conscious in front of the camera in a way that they aren't on the podcast. I still listen to the latter, but yeah, I don't like watching the Fuse show.

I've been side eyeing these two ever since they had nothing to say about their rapist friend Charlemagne. I used to enjoy the podcast, but their dismissiveness with that and attitude towards certain topics just put me off of them. I peeped the show and it's short af and like most people already said here awkward as hell.

Yeah when it comes to people they “know” or are huge fans of, they get real mum. I stopped listening to The Read years ago when Kid Fury was still defending Azealia Banks and when Bey was on that cultural appropriation, they didn’t have shit to say. That truly soured them for me.

IIRC they read him the first time, during the birth of a nation proceedings and I think the one you're mentioning was when he was trying to mount a comeback and the 'over it' was about talking him in general?

this would have been amazing on their podcast incl. Missy answering listener letters
