Ashley Alexander Dupre "What We Want" - Snoop Dogg Remix
March 13, 2008
A quick mashup of the song everyone will be hearing all week. No disrepect or mockery intended to Ms. Dupre, for whom I have nothing but sympathy.. I hope she has good support around her and comes out of this healthy.
NOTE: For a more useful take on the situation go here and here.

So Smooth, aside from the how the mighty fall and all.
And i don't mean now disrespect and all...mainly cause i know the boy...
but, now we got a blind, Black Gov...
and maybe a Black Pres.
Does this mean a bunch of us is gettin out of the Nelson R. / Bill C. strangulation hold(s)?
And for the more important moment thing, will the new Gov break with Charlie R. and support the maybe Black pres.?
Ya see what questions come to mind when you play a Jersey girls song.
Good to have you back in almost full form.

Wonder why you express sympathy to Ms. Dupre, Jay? For the viral attention she is receiving today, the 2 million hits on her MySpace page? The very likely possibility she can conjure up a book deal and look to make a few hundred thousand dollars from the affair. Or even better, get a guest spot on the next Snoop joint remix?

20 bucks Kanye does a remix to this song. Which will be hillarious.

Jay B: It is possible for things to wrap up that way if she has the wherewithal to ride it out like that, and I hope she does..
But in the meantime she's gone overnight from being anonymous to being the center of worldwide attention, as the punchline of a million dehumanizing, sexist jokes and the object of judgement, mockery and scorn from millions of people all over the world. Not to mention having your family thrown into the middle of this media feeding frenzy, at the same time as you're facing the personal turmoil of having your darkest secret revealed to those loves ones. (All for doing something that I don't even think should be illegal..)
If she is strong enough to make it through all that with her head on straight, perhaps this does have a happy ending. But right now it's about as far from an enviable position as I can imagine..
The constant feeling of judgement and scrutiny that comes with being in the public eye is very stressful even for me, and I do it voluntarily, get way way way less attention than her, and most reaction I get is positive. I'd never in a million years want to be where she is now.

Oh my. That's...I'm speechless. Thank you.

Although I haven't thought much about prostitution in my life, I do have to say, poor girl in response to all of this. It seems, as always, more public scrutiny will be heaped on her shoulders than his. I can't get images of Spitzer's quivering liplessness out of my mind...
In any case, here's hoping this joint doesn't become the summer jam of '08. Anything is possible, sadly.
Thanks for all you do, Jay Smooth!

I hear what you're saying Jay. It's a shame the media forms shark circles around stories like this. That girl probably had no idea she'd be Fleiss'd like this. Unfortunately, the story sells papers and lots of them. I hope she gets her mind right too and pulls through this and finds herself a co-writer to put it all together from her perspective and through that maybe she can find a better career path. Any major paper that ostracizes this woman is treading upon hypocrisy esp. when they advertise that kind of service in the classifieds of their own pages.
