NEW YORK AND THE GAY ISSUE
The whole ah New York ah talk 'bout how Channel 9 UPN go undercover at the Irie Jamboree show and start interview the artiste dem 'bout dem stance on homosexuality? Beenie claim say 'funny guys are man who have sex with little boys' but it come in like Buju smell ah rat and just hold him tongue. Now the whole ah New York ah chat 'bout it since the show air last week? Mi hear say clips of it all reach CNN, mad ting!
According to a source close to Irie Jam, there should be no financial fallout from the interviews.
"They interviewed Buju, Beenie, Kulcha Don and Irie Claire from Irie Jam. While the broadcast focused on the gay bashing controversy, I would not say it affected or will affect sponsorship as those who are on board are already aware of the lyrics of our top dancehall djs and do not think the lyrics will incite violence against gays as GLADD would want everyone to believe."
Will the controversy affect future sponsorship of the event?
"On the contrary, I believe Irie Jamboree benefited as the story acknowledged the events as the biggest in the tri-state and it never said homophobic lyrics were performed at the event, just that they Buju, Beenie and Capleton have in the past performed these songs."
CARLENE AND D'ANGEL AT ODDS?
Why Carlene and D'Angel caan gree? Carlene still have feelings fi Beenie? Or she just don't like 'that girl' because of the whole situation with Bounty Killer and all that?
