    This pretty much sums up the state of rap & rappers these days.

    Air New Zealand should get Eminem to rap their safety video, we can spend 3 minutes listening to a constant censor bleep.

    Apparently there's a petition to get Leigh Hart for the next safety video. I'd be on board with that lol

    Lmao. Ok but still, I always get stopped. I also got stopped in Amsterdam for drug test. Just because I hail Satan doesn't mean I'm a bad person.

    The rap was on my flight, was embarrassing to watch.

    I got stopped in Sydney for an explosives scan after they confiscated my toothpaste. It was a bit of a worry, even though I knew I was totally legal tegal.

    The first time I got swabbed I thought they were swabbing for drugs, and I was legit concerned that it would escalate to a cavity search because I was using my (almost certainly soaked in opioid residue) work bag

    IMO the best was the Sports Illustrated one. That had my attention.

    I think the National Party may have ruined this

    Pretty sure he purchased the jet because he was kicked off an Air NZ flight.
    He got kicked off because he wouldn't watch the safety briefing.

    Like he hadn't seen it more times than a lifetime politician..

    The fat little Maori guy was in a movie with Sam Neil a while back.

    And I'm definitely an old fuddy-duddy who pays no attention to rap stars, rising or Kiwi or otherwise. So long as they stay off my damn lawn, I'm happy.
    you aren't confused they are female no matter what they say the are

    and these people aren't rap stars, especially after that video

    When I had the misfortune to see this on the tiny in-flight screen I thought it was a young teenage boy. Figured it must just be some TV celebrity I've never heard of. I'm actually more shocked to learn that they(?) are actually a professional musician to some degree

    **** knows who the other buffoon is "rapping" in the video.

    The videos are pointless, everyone will die if the plane crashes.
    Not necessarily. Sometimes they blow a tire and end up off the back of the runway or land relatively safely in the Hudson river.

    I think those swab machines test for heaps of shit, not only bombs or drugs. I have no problem with the swabbing, it's pulling all my clothes out and not re-packing them properly that's the biggest inconvenience.

    You would have a reasonable excuse for the opiate soaked work bag. Bomb residue soaked, not so much.

    Nah they only test for explosives.

    Testing for drugs requires different swabs

    Oh they're trans. That's why people are pretending he/she is talented.

    What an embarrassment.

    What if I told you that's completely and utterly irrelevant to the subject of the thread.

    Much like my gender, or your gender. No one cares what our genders are. I don't care what her gender is.

    The video was awful, and she's a terrible rapper.

    Now that I think about it, it's actually quite discriminatory to think that her gender being different could make a difference to the quality of the video.

    You should reconsider your bigotry in the future, no person, whether man, woman or anything in between, should have a limit imposed to how terrible they are at rapping.

    But some people do care about their gender, or lack there of and demand that society caters to all their wants. Society would be a lot easier if we all didn't care.

    I didn't read this thread properly before I saw the video, but rap talent aside I 100% just thought it was a tomboy girl. The voice isn't particularly manly, I probably have a manlier voice.

    E- don't mind me, I just read the article.

    They may do and I care about cats but until now haven't brought them up because it has no relevance to the subject. It's like someone posting that they're vegan. They care that they're vegan, but it doesn't matter when discussing how they made a shitty video that's not about diet.

    True acceptance is not openly recognising people's differences, but allowing people to have and practise their differences without recognition that they differ.
