godot - 2009-02-16 NME: Santogold has slammed those who term her music 'hip-hop' as "racist".
The hotly-tipped singer was reacting against continual classification of her self-titled album as 'hip-hop', 'rap' or 'R&B', especially on online retail sites.
Speaking to The Lipster, the singer said: "It's racist. It's totally racist. Everyone is just so shocked that I don't like R&B. Why does R&B keep coming into my interviews? It's pissing me off."
goethe re scape - 2009-02-16 it actually is kind of baffling why Aubrey McFate would put this in the Rap Hip-Hop category. everyone knows you categorize music by haircuts, not skin color. she has pop/hipster rock hair.
gotterdamm - 2009-02-16 Aubrey McFate doesn't care about black people.
Aubrey McFate - 2009-02-17 Changed. Because I'm that nice of a guy.
Merzbau - 2009-02-17 IT IS TOO LATE THE DAMAGE IS DONE :(
spencer - 2009-02-17 Also, a piddling matter: she goes by Santigold now. Lawsuit.
Aubrey McFate - 2009-02-19 Sorry, needs to link to L.E.S. Artistes.
