[EXCLUSIVE] Too $hort: 'This Is a Wake-Up Call for Me'  - Entertainment & Culture - EBONY
Jessica Hopper's sumup: "There are many parts of this conversation that almost made me cry, for so many reasons. Ms. Hampton talking about what young girls accept as normal behavior from boys. Too $hort realizing, at 45 years old, that his idea of how to turn a girl on is actually to assault her and that he has never been told any different. Too $hort, 20 years into his career, being honest that he knew the money was in being nasty, not in being honest. Too $hort’s sadness on the version of masculinity he has been sold, and insisting he is not to be forgiven for this, for profiting on women’s pain. It’s all heavy, heavy shit."
