Not long ago, Riptide implied -- via a Moron of the Week post -- that Miami rapper Bow Wow isn't very smart. Sure, maybe he did announce his own drunk driving -- in a "Lambo" -- via Twitter. And, yeah, maybe Miami Beach cops did slap him with a DUI two seconds later.
But that was just Twitter. He has now moved on to more insightful forms of social media: His new self-promoting bragfest of a blog, which launched this week under the title "Bow Wow's Blog: My life rules!"
Needless to say, it is full of really deep stuff. Consider, for example, his not-even-slightly sexist take on relationships:
One thing i cant get a grip on is why do women get mad if they hear you are sleeping or talking to another woman if she doesn't belong to you?
Or his sociological insights, such as:
This has been puzzling my mind for quite sometime. I just want to know what's the difference between a stripper, video girl, and a hip hop model? The stripper gets paid but also has access to the big ballers with the fame and power etc.... Most video girls are "so called" models now a days, and we know how they get down as you see them on other blogs photo'd with different celebs. so i ask the models, strippers, video girls, and the people what's the difference?
Or his nuanced ideas about materialism:
This Ferarri is so swagged out. I know i am a Lamborghini man but you have to understand how special this car is. Take a look. You should have no problem getting a lady friend in this car.
Ponder that, dear reader.
