Russell Brand Faces Internet Hate For Criticizing Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP”

Russell Brand is not having a good time as the world of the internet is pissed with him. Recently he released a YouTube where he criticizes Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP”. He titled the video as ‘WAP: Feminist Masterpiece or Porn?’. While Russell tried to come out as a feminist, he ended up as quite the opposite of that. People were annoyed as they felt he has no right to explain and criticize their work to them.

Russell Brand Criticizes Female Hip Hop Stars For Following Their Male Counterparts

Russell Brand, through his video, tried to put up the point that the female rappers are only copying the male rappers. Moreover, he feels that this is the opposite of feminism as female rappers are only trying to match their male counterparts and are not trying to do anything of their own. He said in his video,

“If male hip hop tropes are about the potency of male sexuality… and then the female video is a sort of celebration of sexual potency… it’s an emulation of a template that already exists and is established by males.”

Russell Brand feels that female rappers are using methods that have been set by men. By walking in that same line, they are not able to truly liberate themselves from sexism and patriarchy. He said,

“I wouldn’t be so reductive and simplistic to say that women celebrating their bodies using an aesthetic that’s conventionally been associated with the male gaze means it’s impossible that these tools could be used as a vehicle for liberation.”

Russell Brand Talks About Objectification Of Women

Russell Brand feels that women need to carve something of their own if they want to really make an identity for themselves. He further said in his video,

“But I am saying that, in a sense, it’s still the same metric — it’s still the same aesthetic, it’s still the same values, it’s still the same ideals. It’s still ultimately a sort of capitalist objectification and commodification of, in this case, the female.”
