Controversy Over Ludacris Performance at St. John’s University

ludacris-11.jpgStudents at St. John’s University in New York are up in arms over a possible performance by Ludacris on the Roman Catholic school’s campus in April. According to the New York Post, some students feel that paying Luda $85,000 to perform at the school, after a performance of the play The Vagina Monologues was recently blocked, is blatantly hypocritical. The Atlanta rapper has come under increased fire from various groups in recent months over his lyrics, which have been called misogynistic. The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play that features various women speaking to the audience about their vaginas. When the school banned the play, officials cited “unsuitable subject matter” as their reasoning. “The audacious hypocrisy of this university’s administration is beyond words,” one student wrote in an editorial in the school paper. In a response to the uproar, St. John’s released a statement saying that the appearance by Luda was not yet confirmed and that he would be required to perform “radio-edited broadcast versions” of his songs or risk forfeiture of his fee.

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    Luda needs to collect the money up front and then let his last song performed be the unedited version of “Pussy Poppin’” in ode to the ban of “The Vagina Monologues”

    LUDA: “You wanna hear about vagina’s? where here it goes!” “Drop that beat selecta” …
