  • Boooo to the Media

    This is about the unfortunate passing of aaliyah.... and the coverage of her death has been little to none. I haven't seen it on any of the local stations, and CNN only mentioned it once. I haven't heard it on any other news stations, and CNN mentioned it for five seconds like she didn't mean shit to anybody. MTV is doing a fuckin 30 min. special for her, which is good, but when Kirk Cobain killed himself, they were playing shit about it the entire day. Be it britney spears or Nsync that were on the plane and died, you wouldn't be able to watch T.V. because that would be all the t.v. and radio stations would be talking about, and MTV would probably have a whole week dedicated to their memory. People were crying, calling in stations, asking why they were treating it like it wasn't a big deal, yesterday, 93.9 here in DC got a call from a lady stating, "I appreciate what you are doing, because you are the only station in the area who is showing care and compassion and is dedicating your show to a woman who meant so much to people here." When I signed onto AOL today, the main story they had was Britney spears and "is she a role model?" or some bullshit like that, which I think is total disrespect. If it takes crying people and angry viewers for Radio and T.V. stations to realize this fact, then something is definitely wrong with the FCC.



    as if it couldn't have gotten worse, a DJ on a NYC hip hop station Hot 97 named Star would play an airplane crashing and a people screaming every time he mentioned Aaliyah's name.... damn, why the hell are people so stupid?

          the media never gets their shit straight, but news of her death is around a lot...it's on the radio and it's the top stories in the news. people are showing love, too, like they got that wall with her album cover out here in west hollywood that u can sign...i'm thinkin about going there actually.

              I agree, too. The only thing I saw on CNN was a story saying that she and 8 others were dead and although it was believed to be engine failure, the crew insisted on overloading the plane with luggage that shouldn't have been there or some shit like that. She got no respect from CNN and that's crap if you ask me. MTV has been doing a pretty good job, and that's sayin alot. But you're right when you say that it's not nearly enough. I didn't even see it on any of our local stations.

                I agree that CNN didn't talk a whole lot about Aaliyah at all. I thought it was really nice that BET's 106 and Park did the whole countdown with Aaliyah videos instead of having the regular countdown. I don't know whether or not TRL and DFX did the same thing, but if TRL abd DFX didn't, they should have showed just Aaliyah videos in her memory in my opinion.I haven't really been watching a lot of T.V lately, so I really can't say too much about the media as a whole(I just looked at BET and some of CNN). Even if the media hasn't been talking about it a whole lot, I've been hearing MANY, MANY, MANY peops talk about her. Yesterday and today, when I was going to class, peops were talkin outside and in the hall, about how sad her death was. She really was an inspiration to a lot of people, especially me. I mean, she's gone and that's sad! All we can do is keep her memory and music alive.

                  I dont wanna make 2 much of a fuss....

                  But i think partly there was some racism involved prob tha whites didnt bother much cos she was black?
                  Or prob cos she wasnt as big as Britney there was a difference it does come down 2 how much fame n money u have as well.

                    star and buckwild think that they are black versions of howard stern. they will say anything that makes your head spin n make u think "holy shit did they just say that" it has nothing to do with alliah....thats just their routine
                    thats like christopher reevs doin tha crip walk

                      The media's always been fucked

                      I didnt even hear anything about it over here, I get all of the latest news from you guys!

                      And I know, It's just plain disrespectful to her memory to have a 2 second news brief on Sky News (English news channle) just the once and then never mention it again, as if she were nothing.

                      But I'm not gonna make a hugh fuss, cause I think that we all know that Aaliyah wouldnt want us to get all mad over how her death wasnt publicised enough or how there should be more memory shows on MTV.

                      I'm just gonna let all of this media bullshit slide, and think of Aaliyah and how much she meant to everyone. I think thats how she would've wanted it.

                        well...

                        I'm sorry Aaliyah died. I feel for her family and those close to her...but...

                        "MTV is doing a fuckin 30 min. special for her, which is good, but when Kirk Cobain killed himself, they were playing shit about it the entire day. "

                        She didn't really contribute a whole lot artisticly. She didn't break any ground or leave a mark. Kurt Cobain was responsible for bringing an entirely new genre of music to the forefront. What can really be said for Aaliyah? She had a good voice, and was unbelievably beautiful, but she just didn't offer anything new to the table.

                        I actually have not heard/seen a single thing about her death on TV, but then again, I only watch about an hour of TV a week...if that.



                        I'm a stuck, starving artist.

                        Into the full view.
                        Do you see me as suitable...
                        to prove to the world that my beautiful dream is simply doable?

                          Two Thirds...you're right about Kurt Cobain. I agree with you on that point for sure.

                          But I also agree that MTV didn't do as much as I thought they would. I haven't seen a single Aaliyah video on MTV since she died. And fuck, VH-1 had an hour of nothing but Aaliyah videos. Although I will say that in 2 days, MTV did put together a great show, it had a lot of people in it, and it put me in tears. So I'll give em a thumbs up for that.

                              Its got nothing to do with race, thats crazy. Personally I hate it when the media goes over the top and spends weeks covering the death of a celeb. Like when princess diana died, that pissed me off totally. There are plenty of people who did loads more good than diana who die everyday, why is she so special. So im pleased they haven't gone too over the top about Aaliyah.
