This week, we’re rating the slips, flubs, and potential fallout from some questionable statements made by Lil Nas X, Nicki Minaj, and Fat Joe. Where do they fall on our SOHH Damage Scale? SOHHWhatchusayin?
Nicki Minaj gets a 5 — the top of our SOHH Damage Scale for her covid vaccination comments. From her initial admission that she wasn’t vaccinated to her subsequent explanation about her cousin’s friends’ swollen testicles — Nicki needs a damage control public relations expert NOW. Q-Anon followers are now her biggest supporters. Is Nicki’s stock slipping?
Lil Nas X’s “Fuck Your Kids… not really, fuck your kids” comment on The Breakfast Club this week was live bait for the media sharks looking for the next sizzling headline. Is he wrong for putting his “self-expression” over the lives of impressionable kids? What’s his next move if things go south? Check out where he falls on our Damage Scale and tell us if you agree.

Our SOHH Damage Scale says Fat Joe’s approaching disaster with his “dusty crackhead bitches” comments aimed at recording artists Lil Mo’, Vida and possibly Ashanti. Though Joe has apologized publicly on social media and even sent flowers, the “bitch” word has got black women heated. Can Joe right the wrong? Are flowers enough? The coming week will be critical for him to restore his credibility and respect with black women — especially after his subpar Verzuz performance.
