Actor, singer and chronic personal PR nightmare-on-Twitter Tyrese has once again found himself getting bad press via the 140-charactr social network. While he usually gets roasted for his bad grammar and worse advice for the ladies, Jody got himself in hot water this time around after posting a new video of his which was almost  completely devoid of Black women (I peeped one in a corner). When his largely Black female follower-base took him to task, he informed them that its not his fault that the “best” women who came out weren’t Black.

How do I say this without snarking the women in this video…some of those women are only gonna be afforded “best” status by men who seem to have a fetish for the ‘exotic’.  Not that they weren’t pretty, but I doubt a White guy would have been so excited by the White women cast. And even if these were the most gorgeous non-Black women in the world, it takes a real asshole to say “Here’s a video from a Black artist with a largely Black female fan base. What kind of woman should we cast?” and comes up with that.

Anyway, forget Jody and this wack video. It wouldn’t matter if he cast Alek Wek or your cousin Keisha, this fool made a song with the Pied Pedophile of R&B AND Tyga. The girls were just the mayonnaise on the fail sandwich.

    I let Tyrese go along time ago, as usual…”when he get on he leave your as$ for a white girl!”

    I respect him being color blind, but regardless he should have had some form of representation of his race….don’t forget where you come from Black Ty!

      Sisters are flipping the script in the most hilarious way though. Black women who are losing weight are getting smart and once they get thin guess what? They leave “his” ass for a white man or some non-black man. LOL.

    Tyrese is an example of twitter gone wrong for a celebrity. Every since he got on twitter I find myself liking him less and less he was more interesting when he was a bit mysterious and didn’t say everything on his mind or drop “knowledge” …shrugs. As for his video it doesn’t offend me because I’ am not checking for it anyway, but if you are the one disappointed in it hit him or any other celebrity where it hurts by not supporting it

      K that’s a weak argument because Robin Thicke’s primary fan base isn’t made up of white women. Plus he’s like one of the only white artists who doesn’t use a ton of white chicks in his videos. That being said, I could care less really what Tyrese Gibson is doing. I could hardly get through this video. It just oozed a lack of creativity and maturity. So thank you Tyrese. Thanks for not putting blacks girls like me in your poor excuse for a video.

      it is a weak argument because his PRIMARY fan base isn’t white women. I didn’t say white chicks don’t buy any robin thicke CD’s but they definitely don’t make up the majority of his fans. Just go to one of his concerts. It’s also a weak argument because robin thicke is in the minority of white artists who don’t use a lot of white women in there videos. However a majority of black male artists tend to lean towards using non-black women in their videos. That is the issue at hand. I’m done with this now.

    Did I just hear him say he was bringing “class” back to videos!?! And then it cuts to a clip of three women wearing next to nothing on all fours feeling on each other!
    He’s having a laarrrf!

    It looked like any other music video to me:
    Near naked women with fake body parts attempting to look as vacuous and eager to please as possible, often either positioned like they have doo-doo in their bottoms or balancing precariously on ridiculously high heels that will surely one day give them spinal problems, while males with inflated sense of self sing/ rap uninspiring and often misogynistic nonsense over a distinctly ordinary beat.

    Better not to have sisters in videos like this. He and all other musicians casting for scantily-clad objects can continue to cast the ethnically ambiguous or the non-black.
