Just Dance 2014 TV Advert Causes Controversy Over Misheard Song Lyrics

just_dance_2014_starshipsUbisoft’s newest dance title for Wii U and Wii, Just Dance 2014 has been working up a calorie-burning storm since its release on October 4, but the latest television advert is cooking up a grim sweat with the general public. The UK TV advert – which has been on air for over a fortnight advertising the Wii U and Wii platforms – has been raising some suspicious eyebrows over misheard Nicki Minaj lyrics, which seem to state the racial slur N*****.

Though Minaj’s song Starships has topped the charts for well over a year, and is one of the best-selling singles of all time, the lyrics – in neither the clean or explicit version – state the racial slur, and in fact say: “My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki.” However, some people have taken to Twitter to voice their concerns, as various articles report. You can check out the TV advert here to see if you can hear the alleged racial slur at the ten second mark.

    1. And you see the little purple man on the right? Th arrows are pointing to his sweaty balls! They’re sweaty from dancing.

  1. “Minaj’s song Starships has topped the charts for well over a year, and is one of the best-selling singles of all time”
    This is what we should really be worried about.

    1. Not true! The way it is said makes it sound bigger, the song is #36 on the list of best digital selling singles… so.

      I hate her, she is disgusting but I like her music.

  2. THE FIRST THING I WOULD DO IF I WAS A GIRL IS TO HUNT DOWN THAT CUNT BITCH AND GIVE HER A BEATING OF HER LIFE!! STUPID WHORE!! JUST HER FACE WHEN SHE IS SMILING BUGS ME!! I THOGHT KESHA WAS BAD……

    1. You just hate the world. don’t you? I don’t think I know anyone who really likes her or her music, personally, but that doesn’t mean we all hate her or want anyone hurt because of it. The same with Ke$ha, but if you Google Ke$ha, you’ll come to find that she is not as bad as she seems and she is smarter than most, probably you too. I dislike both of them as well as their music, but I don’t insult them as childishly as you do everything. We all know that you are a Nintendo fan, good or bad, but you NEED to grow up.

  3. How ignorant can you get? Can’t you see this chick is whiter than Wonder Bread with chalk on it?

  4. This really annoys me, they block it off some music channels too. People need to get their facts straight, why would Nicki say “my name is a N*****”
