Hey guys, I’m finally back to write something new lol. I wasn’t really writing anything 4 the past 2 weeks, due to family,school and what not. But anyways,

Omarion responded to the people at Boombox about the “devilish” controversy in the music industry. If you haven’t heard already, singer Tiffany Evans spoke out about Rihanna’s song Russian Roulette, saying that the song implies people joining in the worship of the devil. (Although everyone is entitled to believe in what they want in my opinion). Omarion replied in said response: “I don’t personally know Rihanna’s beliefs but I think there’s a very dark and very sinister part of the entertainment business
and I think it’s very visible,” he said. “This is something that a lot of people don’t look at [but for example] Michael Jackson used to be a Jehovah’s Witness and I remember hearing that he wanted to separate from the religion — and this was during the time that he was doing ‘Thriller’ [which ended up being] his biggest album.”

“Fast forward to now,” Omarion continued, “[and] it really made me think that there is a [time as an artist] where there’s going to be a choice. The[entertainment] world [dictates] that you have to be with three or four women, or do this in order to get that [and] I think it’s really interesting. With God and the industry, it’s really dark. The dark side is having to get in, there’s a certain submission you need to have. Just like a gang [initiation], so to speak. You might have to do something against your moral code. I’m not saying that it’s always this way, but when you’re someone that is young and you’re coming up in the industry and you really don’t have a grip on your morals it can be very dark. The game is just about over saturation.

“I don’t know if Rihanna [has fallen victim to those pressures]. I’ve never really heard her speak about it,” he said. “I hope that she doesn’t believe in that stuff and I don’t think that she does, but I don’t know. It’s not just been a Rihanna thing, [there’s has been religious speculation] about a lot of artists.”

Hmm, this sounds interesting. The question is however; is Rihanna wrong for coming out with the song “Russian Roulette”, or do you think that everyone is entitled to their own opinion? Tell me what you think?

whoops I didn’t mean to submit yet..idk wat happened, i didn’t even get to make sure i spelled everything right yet lol smh but i’ll just continue from here now i guess
The song i’m speaking of was russian roulette, and mind you(sidebar), she spelled russian wrong on the lyric sheet she was writing smh but anywayz,
i was wondering why the song was so vague and obscure and yet so dark at the same time
they don’t say what they’re talking about in the song but whatever it is, you know you’re denying yyourself, even to the point of death, like playing w/ your own life and your actual soul!
needless to say, i didn’t like it and the fact that i know my niece has been interested in the stuff but i saw clips of the video, where she’s sitting there with the gun,
and i really just commend ppl on speaking out. we need to enlighten each other when we have information and everyone who thinks they are just jealous have a partial perspective. they may not have as much monetary success or fame/popularity but they, in their own rights, have maintained a stable fan base all due to TALENT.
Thankz for writing; I was looking for info on the topic :-}

I’ve only heard the song once and I thought she was comparing the relationship or falling for a guy to Russian Roulette. With that said, it was still a very dark song.
