Lupe Fiasco Goes Head-to-Head With Bill O'Reilly

Lupe Fiasco turned up on last night's episode of The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News to defend his recent claim that President Obama is a terrorist. In the interview, which you can watch below, host Bill O'Reilly lectures the rapper about the greatness of the United States and his responsibility to his impressionable young fans. "You go out there and you talk to a lot of younger people, and this is what  gets me – your constituency are not exactly political science Ph.D.s," O'Reilly said. The host only gets more condescending from that point onward, leading the very earnest Fiasco to get increasingly flustered as he attempts to explain why he believes the war in Afghanistan is unjust.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
