Let the marketing begin...

When you’re a struggling artist, you gotta do what you gotta do to get word out — the more clever the better. That’s just the way it is. And so goes Major Lazer, a Jamaican commando who lost his arms in the Secret Zombie War of 1984 and had them surgically replaced with lazers…and who also decided to put out the electro-tinged dancehall album Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do! (out June 16 on Downtown, naturally). Apparently, dude was the guy who hooked up with Rihanna, and then like a jerk posted up all the hot naked pics she sent him. A dick move? Absolutely. A cunning marketing stroke, guaranteeing chatter from here to Chatternooga? No question. I mean, did you see that one of her squeezing her buttocks? My lordy, the Madman goes starry-headed just thinking about it.

Guys doing whatever he can to get you to pay attention — you can even follow Major Lazer on Twitter HERE, but homeboy tweets in some serious patois so I gots no idea what he’s saying. He’s even using his Hollywood connections in kind of a whorish way, but whatcha gon do. There he is below spotted cavorting with notorious womanizer Jack Nicholson, then cleaning up his image doing charity work with UNICEF Ambassador Angelina Jolie herself. Damn, homeboy gets around…

    I can’t see what the talk is about Rihanna going to a sex shop. It is lawful, it’s a free country and she should be able to do what she wishes to.

  4. Sorry but I don’t love Rihanna’s red hair and cone shaped bra. She does not need to be a Madonna copy.
