    Thumbs down Beenie Man under gay scrutiny in Spain

    In the face of strong opposition from gay groups and concerned citizens, dancehall reggae superstar, Beenie Man, was expected to perform yesterday in Barcelona, Spain - but he would have to do it while being under close watch and scrutiny by gay rights groups.

    I am doing some research on it at present, and will probably do an article on it. It appears to be crafted by European countries, with heavy gay pride involvement. The weird thing is that it appears to represent dancehall in general and not one specific artist. Beenie Man does not and cannot sign off carte blanche on dancehall performances.....I find it weak to a certain extent.

    I wonder if there is a "Hip Hop/Rap Compassionate Act" when DMX, Eminem etc. pass through Europe?

    This part is comical:
    "One section of the article, written by Diego A. Manrique, defended the deejay saying the audience would not understand his lyrics clearly enough to respond violently to homosexuals. It also continued, "It is also insulting to make it obligatory for an artiste to sign an agreement of good intentions and prevent him from performing some songs."

    That's your best arguement? They won't understand what the hell he's saying anyway?

    And making him sign is "insulting"? Aww, his feelings were hurt.
