The hip-hop pornographer: it’s almost worth skipping straight to page 2 of Salon‘s piece on the new little Li’l Kim album, which is where discussion of the demerits of a pro-porn position gives way to discussion of the record itself. Though ‘discussion’ in both cases is a little too strong a word: Michelle Goldberg essentially suggests that there’s a conspiracy in the media made up of critics educated at ‘porn-friendly’ Universities, and then goes on to slate Li’l Kim’s new record for being nihilistic and hostile. After two pages about the “direct parallel” between pro-porn feminism and people buying Kim records, she does finally accept that perhaps the rapper’s hostility is down to her lover having been shot dead. Wow, you think so, eh?
