reggie and tay zonday don't sing their "natural" voices, it's like they are singing in blackface

I like to think that Tay really does sound like that. Perhaps he is Rick Astley's son.

http://www.hhnlive.com/features/more/322

HHNLive: Can you give us a brief background? Where are you from? How old are you? What is your background?

Tay Zonday: I live in Minneapolis. I'm 25 years old. I'm not sure what you mean by "background." Is that a code word for "race?"

I thought he was like 16!!!

Curt1s Stephens, Saturday, 11 August 2007 22:16 (twelve years ago) link

he is controversial

cutty, Saturday, 11 August 2007 22:27 (twelve years ago) link

TZ: In a nutshell, you are asking whether it is my goal to be an artist or to be an entertainer. Why does this matter? There is no way that I can "win" this question. If I say I was trying to be serious, and everyone laughs at it, I lose. If I say I was trying to make people laugh, but they only see a serious message, I lose.

People should not worry about what I was trying to do with my music or my videos. They should just experience it in the way that is real to them. It is not my job to understand why people experience my art in the way that they do. I just make the art and people find what they find in it. Leave it at that. We spend too much time in this world trying to be each others' psychiatrists. Does what I was trying to do with the music, or my imagination of how other people experience the music, actually make a difference in what it means to you?

Tay Zonday I heart you:
http://www.mspmag.com/features/features/83911.asp

"I read your interview with the Strib, and it sounds like you don’t understand the concept of selling out.
No, I don’t know what it means.

No?
I don’t know what people mean by that.

I think people mean exploiting your art for crass, commercial payoff.
No, I don’t think so. The subtext of that is that this somehow relates to social justice. That’s what’s behind that. The implication is there is a social justice politic, and somehow a piece of art undermines the social justice politic. And I don’t believe an image can cause social oppression. I don’t think it can be the origin of social injustice. And that’s been said many, many times. Ralph Ellison, in Shadow and Act, in the titular essay—he was writing in the 1940s about Hollywood—wrote about how Hollywood embodied these stereotypes of the Negro—the servant, the mammy, the jezebel, and whatnot. He was addressing this concern among black activists or liberals in the NAACP or really “white progressives” in the 1940s who were saying that stereotypical imagery in Hollywood causes racism. And some black and white leaders saying we have to get these stereotypes out of these movies. What Ralph Ellison was saying, echoing other black intellectuals like Zora Neal Hurston and his mentor, Richard Wright, was, “No, no, it’s not that simple. Hollywood is really the shadow, and society is the act.” It’s a fallacy that if there’s a stereotype in Hollywood, the people will go, “Gosh, that really does reflect what black people are like.” How can that stereotype be effective unless people are actually watching that, consuming that, in a life situation where they are not encountering other black people to begin with? And if you look at how that life situation comes about, well, they’re living in an isolated class situation, an isolated neighborhood. So it’s kind of like a kid here sitting in a cul-de-sac where they don’t really encounter a diverse community of people, and they’re sitting and watching a video on the Internet and saying, “Gosh, that’s what black people are.” That’s not a problem with the video, that’s a problem with the cul-de-sac. "
