This young man from Louisiana calls himself “Hurricane Chris.” The Internet tells us that he is famous among children for a rap song called “Halle Berry (She’s Fine),” the lyrics of which praise the actress’ Oscar-winning turn in the film Monster’s Ball. Recently he put on a concert for the Louisiana legislature. Hmm. [Political Derby]

    I vote for the hottie in the powder blue. I don’t think that kid will survive her appraising looks.

    Michael Steele was right. The hippity-hoppity-ization of the GOP is “off da hook.” Jest fix it; no big deal!

    Michael Jackson’s dead????

  • facehead

    Rap and politics are like Republicans and women, they just don’t go together.

    BTW, it looks like Michael Jackson didn’t follow through on that chain letter I sent him.

  • stew

    No joke: TZM is reporting MJ died.

    Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson die on the same day and no Wonkette post? I know this is supposed to be D.C. gossip and all, but doesn’t D.C. belong to Hollywood these days? What gives?

  • bfstevie

    As a New Yorker I now feel nominally better about the clusterf*ck that is our state legislature.

  • Daria

    Oh come on. His godmother is a state representative and she invited him there to be an example of kids who don’t drop out of school. Or whatever.

    And I haz a sad about MJ :(

  • chascates

    I feel sorry about Farrah any way.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Nobody but TMZ is reporting it yet.
    But in typical fashion, the LATimes story on his being rushed to the hospital had an update that consisted entirely of a description of the Bel Air mansion Jackson was renting for $100,000 a month.
    Would it be too much to hope for autoerotic asphyxiation with a red Kabbalah string?

  • President Beeblebrox

    Rut-roh, threadjacking time. Jacko dead >>>> video of lame rap song on the floor of the LA House.

    (Even so, somewhere up in heaven, Huey Long is crying.)

  • chascates

    [re=348595]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Jesus Juice should be involved as well.

  • 2druk2phluq

    Epic lulz. Just when I thought it might soon be safe to admit being from Louisiana. At least the white members of the legislature didn’t take out their traditional Klan gear and cart the guy out the door to be hanged by the neck until he never makes another rap song. In related news, Michael Jackson won’t be joining the Klan (his lifelong dream) because HE DEAD…

    You just think Louisiana is messed up. It’s so, so much worse than what you think. There is a pencil embedded in the ceiling of that room at the State Capitol, where the guy is doing his “wrapping muzic.” The pencil belonged to a Louisiana State Senator. The mafia blew up his desk the same day they cut his throat at home. The mafia had pretty much decided they were going to make sure he died of something that day. I was close friends with his grandson, and my grandfather was involved in the murder. Coinkidenk? Apparently. Didn’t find out until they were all long dead.

  • 2druk2phluq

    Please disregard my previous comment. It was not a cool thing to mention considering the suffering the man’s murder caused his family. It’s not something a good friend would have brought up, but I can’t delete it. Hence this apology.

  • Extemporanus

    He chose this very instant to slip the gilded coil so that one of his former victims could take his place at the gig and fulfill a lifelong dream of performing for the Louisiana legislature.

    This was a very classy final act reminiscent of the Michael Jackson of old, who in many ways left us long,long ago. Take heart: A noble death can bring redemption that eludes one while still living.

    “Who’s loving you now” MJ?

    We are. And we are the world…

    [re=348650]Extemporanus[/re]: Grrr…wrong thread! Feel free to skip it when reading the comments on the next post.

  • Noonan

    The gentleman’s time has expired. Like 3 seconds into that song.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …did anyone else pick up the irony of a rapper named “HURRICANE” Chris addressing the Lousiana state house? Whats next Stevie Wonder judging a beauty pangeant!?

  • Guppy06

    [re=348863]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Actually, that’d be pretty cool, at least for him. He’d have to judge it by feel.

  • Barrelhse

    In Black-face?

  • engulfedinflames

    at the risk of sounding like my grandfather…this is what passes for music these days? shit

  • CriticalOne

    Can I just offer, as a card-carrying black man, my apologies for Hurricane Chris?

    If you have the fortitude, please sit and listen to his debut hit “A Bay Bay”, but please don’t hold him against us. Also.

  • A Better American Than YOU

    Paging Katrina. Paging Katrina.

  • OKLAHOMAjesus?

    That was a gripping speech, future Obama anyone? On a side note, I just found a bug in my beer. GROSS!

  • The Schadenfried PAC

    [re=348975]CriticalOne[/re]: as a card carrying black woman, I already snatched away his Knee-grow pass after he dropped Ay Bay Bay.

  • WickedWitch

    My ears. My ears. No wonder Mom warned me about Louisiana men. They are IGNANT.

  • ChickenTeriyakiBoy

    Halle Berrrrry….Halle Berry

  • sezme

    Epic win for the disembodied high-heel clad foot tapping away at the upper right.

  • Hagar77

    So are the phrases “Booty bigger than the pus” and “Take her from tha club / To tha car to tha dick” now part of the Louisiana Congressional Record? Because that’s an epic win no matter how you look at it. Jindal/Hurricane Chris 2012!
