A true artist draws from their surrounding and is in a constant state of growth.

Have you ever been to Memphis? I would find it hard for a vocal artist to grow up in and around Memphis and have no influence from the Black Blues, Rock, Soul and Funk artists. If you have been there and experienced their music scene, then you would agree that he has more than likely had an authentic influence from Black musicians.

A true artist draws from their surroundings and is in a constant state of growth. Iggy does not fit into this category. She is merely a puppet.

black and white culture in the south do not blend like you saying it does. white music is bluegrass and country. soul, blues and r&b is from black ppl. if yt doing it then they are appropriating our culture, which is fine to enjoy different genres and cultures but know what it is.

I do see iggy as way more disingenuous than timberlake, she's like a minstrel show spoof. but he aint all gravy either. he also believes the white hype and did not show proper respect to great black artists like prince.
I never said that those genres were YT genres. I said that they do have a lot of Yt soul singers, etc down there, so Yt people singing like him is not as uncommon down there like some make it. Yt Soul singers and R&B singers have a certain respect for the Black soul, funk and r&b artists before them out there. Yes, of course they have stolen from our culture and I believe that the origins of Bluegrass and Country were from Blacks as well but it's funny that Yt people sold you on the thought that they created it. The point was that those genres are big down there and he has an actual influence from Black culture as do a lot of other Yt R&B singers from there. Alias stated that YT people don't talk like him or sing like him but even Yt country singers use broken English plenty.

I would just think someone who is so down with blacks and true to the bone ingrained in aa culture would have at least one as a close friend...idk that's just how my thought process works....

I don't know that more than 4 or 5 pictures of his wedding have been released publicly. 

People are just saying things and destroying the credibility they'll need when real issues are being discussed.

You can be influenced by a culture and respect a culture without having a person from that culture as a best friend. Nice reach though.

That's like a white woman who dates nothing but black men but has no black female friends. None. Something very odd about that but ok

A white dude who grew up in a known aa cultural city, makes millions off black music and rips off, excuse me, is influenced by black artists has not made one black friend who was close enough to be involved in his wedding? Yeah that's not suspect at all

Usually when you are truly immersed in a culture and not just appropriating for personal gain, you tend to make genuine personal relationships with the people you swagger jack daily.

But excuses like this are why "artists" like jt, iggy, macklemore, etc can come in and swoop black award shows and get accolades
