Dionne Warwick slammed Snoop Dogg, Tupac’s misogynistic lyrics
Dionne Warwick reportedly “went to town” and berated Snoop Dogg and Tupac for creating highly misogynistic lyrics.
The new documentary from CNN Films Dionne Warwick: Don’t do me again presents the admissions of these stars.
in one section, the two artists sat down to recount the times they were scolded by the star.
According to the 51-year-old rapper, Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight was, at one point, asked to show up at her house around 7 a.m.
By the time the duo reached their driveway several minutes earlier, the star recalled feeling extremely “scared and shaken”.
According to Billboard, “We’re powerful right now, but she’s always been powerful. Thirty years in the game, in the big house with lots of money and success.
At one point in their conversation, Warwick even asked the boys to call him “b****”, given their long-term use of the phrase.
The reason being: “These children express themselves, which they have the right to do. However, there is a way to do it.
Warwick then recalled telling the artists, “You’re all going to grow up. You are going to have families. You are going to have children.
“You’re going to have little girls, and one day that little girl is going to look at you and say, ‘Daddy, did you really say that? Is that really you? What are you going to say?
For a father of three, this interaction was a wake-up call for his own ego as he realized, “She was controlling me at a time when I thought we couldn’t be controlled.”
“We were the most gangsters you could be, but that day at Dionne Warwick’s, I think we got gangstered that day.”
That’s when Snoop “made it a point to put on joy records — me uplifting everybody and nobody dying and everybody alive.”
He even reached out and said, “Dionne, I hope I’ve become the jewel you saw when I was the dirty little rock that was in your house. I hope I make you proud.”
However, while Snoop Dogg and Tupac felt the interaction “brought home some lessons”, Warrick admits “They felt I was ‘dissing’ them, as they put it. I wanted them to know that they were dealing with someone who – number one, if I didn’t care about you, you wouldn’t have been invited to my house.
“They all knew I was pretty serious. We had something to tell each other. I was spanking them, and they wanted to know why I was spanking them.”
