Mix-A-Lot invited women to join him onstage, where he was backed by an orchestra.
"Since tonight is orchestral movements from the hood night, I'm going to leave some of this open if a couple of ladies would like to get up on the stage," he told the audience. "Many musical innovations have been made in hip-hop music that can bring new energy, sounds and rhythm to the classical world."

And I just heard them perform Daphnis et Chloie.
America was a wonderful experiment— and it worked just fine for quite a while, before among other things, we became a giant company. Once you trade with the entire Earth, you can’t offend anyone, because they will stop buying your products. Best to build a wall and take care of your own. We can be a magnificent people, we just have to get frosty and start over.
A great civilization can have about 200 years before it starts to crap out, and we had a good run. If you’re realistic and understand it isn’t going to last forever, you can give it a whirl and you have a chance to make something amazing. The materials are still here— we just need our minds, and some focus. Oh, and that wall.
It's the story of the Old Testament. Those who love God worship God, build great societies, once there decide they know better and forget God, and everything goes to hell and suffering follows until they turn again to God.
Or her thighness.
America's cultural values were founded, basically by puritans in the 17th century. Their influence shaped this country, and is still felt today in many areas (blue laws, dry counties etc..) . But puritans were a tiny, tiny minority of European society. Most people were not puritanical in England, Europe, and certainly not the rest of the word.
Once large scale immigration began, in the 19th century, and population growth exploded, it was over. A minority belief system cannot keep hold on a nation this big, even if your wall existed.
I found it humorous and saw a bunch of people having a great time. I really cant see the horror.
Fry: "Now if you'll excuse me, it's 8:00. Time to get busy." (starts listening to "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-lot)
Leela: "You can't just sit here in the dark listening to classical music."
It’s a classic rump-shakin’ good song, and looks like everyone was having a great time. Can’t see the problem here.
Ha ha classical! Love it.
I have to agree...looked like fun. He’s a Seattle native and I just can’t get worked up over this harmless display.
Bigger fish to fry,
But, pardon the pun, no way, no how, I’m going to go up on stage for anything...let alone to shake my backside at anyone. Not. Going. To. Happen.
I prefer this version
Hope you enjoyed our performance. :-)
Ha ha! Genius!
This isn’t satire?
An embarrassment for humanity. Poor America.
Vulgar and disrespectful to women.
I had already had the displeasure of seeing this, looks like an effort “expand” to new audiences. No thank you!
It’s pop music, Red. Not a hymn. Everyone I saw on the video looked like an adult, and if it was so degrading to women why were they turning the women away from the stage? Very classy, well-dressed women from the video I watched. Just a lot of people cutting loose and having fun, including the orchestra!
Puritans were quite influential in England during the seventeenth century, especially during Oliver Cromwell's republic of 1649-1660. The Huguenots, their Calvinist counterparts in France, were also influential, as were Calvinist sects in Scotland, Switzerland and Germany.
Such cavalier trends tend to be straightened out once in a while. Idolatrous empires were built, somewhat, over long periods of time punctuated by repeated depositions that happened within days, each, and eventually, final depositions. It appears that cheerleaders for such empires have been unopposed at setting themselves up as imposters of moral authority since about 722 BCE. Ethnic vestiges continue to exaggerate vainglories of those fluctuating empires in ongoing revisions.
See the changes coming in our countries of northwestern culture, momentarily usurped again—changes to possibly spread throughout the world. Many folks, currently influential at various levels, are very afraid of those possible changes ahead. It shows in hysterical, licentious outbursts in contemporary political speech and entertainment. In sum, they’re shrieking about the end of the world (”as seen on TV”), when they only feel the end of their kind of world (see bouncy empires) coming and vainly lack the ability to analyze the situation honestly.
Good Lord - I heard the Seattle Symphony do their first ever performance of Walton’s “Belshazzar’s Feast” back in probably 1967, when a quarter of the audience got up and walked - hope at least that many left this performance.....
You’re right- Mexican United States is going to be much better. Skyscrapers and Mars missions- like the Jetsons! You just wait
I was referring to the European foreign culture that has already taken over during the past few decades in politics, business and academia. It flowed into the northeast, and much of it hopped over to California. Although some descendants of those folks are ingenuous, the future will be built by the kind of people who brought more encouragement toward ingenuity to early America.
My point is that we should all try to be Americans like those who founded our nation instead of turning it into some extension of southern European or associated Balkan culture. Slavery is not suitable for us. Assimilate before leading.
Oh my gosh... The woman in the black dress.
I am very familiar with this song, as I was teaching teens when this came out and had teenagers of my own. It is, IMO, a disgusting, disrespectful song. As for the women putting themselves up on stage to be degraded, well, that seems to be a big trend these days.
I am, BTW, a boomer lady who had a passion for what we called rock ‘n’ roll in her teens and who has always loved to dance to popular tunes. But I see a difference between having fun dancing and being suggestive and profane in one’s movements.
I guess we will have to agree to disagree.
Ha! A symphonic FReeper!
Great performance. I wish I was in the choir.
I thought that was Mooch on Ellen Degenerate.
Guess it is the Libertarian in me. The guy who is doing the womanizing is surrounded by women who are more than happy, for free, to shake their butt. If the guy singing and the rump shakers are having fun, who is to say it is wrong? He clearly says he doesn’t touch. He isn’t going around copping a feel.
