Adele was criticized for playing an offensive comedy about African men

The female singer was reacted when appearing in a comedy that despised men of color, saying that Africa is the number one destination for sexual activity.

After being praised for her slim face, sexy body after weight loss, Adele was criticized for her lack of sophistication on the show Saturday Night Live (SNL), according to CNN.

In this piece, the singer Rolling in the Deep and two actors Kate McKinnon, Heidi Gardner transformed into a divorced woman, went to Africa to find men.

While the actors talked, behind appeared black young men in revealing clothing and elderly women on the beach. The trio of actors were criticized for calling Africa “the number one destination for divorced women”, accompanied by vulgar and erotic comparisons.

SNL’s program was immediately met with controversy. There are many opinions that actors are racist, viewing men of color as only sexual objects. According to CNN, the skits took place at the wrong time, especially the tense wave of protests in Nigeria.

“The skits are indecent, indecent. People in Nigeria, Namibia, South Africa and the Congo are fighting for their lives. It’s embarrassing to turn this place into a sexual destination for white women.” R&B Vibe R&B journalist Shenequa Golding writes on his personal page.

Dometi Pongo, MTV’s MC, said that SNL is not skillful in making skits: “If you want to reflect this, you have to do it more skillfully and respectfully, not the way Adele and the actors did.”

The actors’ constant laughing attitude is said to be disrespectful to the matter of subtlety. CNN said Adele declined to comment. They continued to contact NBC Universal to receive feedback on this issue.

On August 31, Adele encountered a similar controversy, having mixed opinions when wearing a swimsuit printed with the Jamaican flag pattern. Many Africans believe that female singers occupy black culture and do not respect their national flag.

“Adele wants to take over culture. She’s a white woman who likes to cause trouble. I hate to see this image,” said Enest Owens, a journalist and CEO of media company Ernest Media Empire, commenting on Adele’s photo.

Development Stages of Pop Music

Development Stages of Pop Music

Pop has his own specific genre of music. It often incorporates a number of musical elements that may include country, dance, hip, hop and rock. Light rock and pop music are two of the most used words to describe this genre of music. It can be traced throughout its history dating back 76 years or more.

In the 50s, some of its most famous musical works include Bill Haley and His Comets, Peggy Lee, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra. In the 1960s, several artists included Frankie Avalon, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Sonny and Cher, Aretha Franklin, and The Beatles. The 70s saw dance floors and rock combined during this decade, including some favorites such as Earth, Wind and fire, The Jackson Five, Rod Steward, ABBA, Donna Summer, Elton John and Billy Joel.

As you can see, pop music continues to grow in different ways with different artists, which enables it to become one of the most searched music genres ever. Of course the ’80s and earlier really didn’t differ much. In the decades when pop was considered the king of music, we must mention Michael Jackson and Madonna. Of course, they were not the only ones who defined pop music in the 1980s. Apart from them, we also remember George Michael, Cyndi Lauper, Tiffany, Cher, Phil Collins, The Eurythmics and The Go-Gos.

In the 90s, pop began to incorporate elements of the R & B genre, which must include stars like TLC, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Brandy. However, the influence of rock remained with singers like Jewel, Nirvana, Eric Clapton, Tori Amos and Madonna. Of course, we can’t forget other 90s favorites like NSYNC, Ricky Martin, New Kids on Block, Willa Ford and Britney Spears.

Pop music today has a significant influence from the development of recording technology. Electronic music plays and digital recordings are intrusive and are extremely important in pop music, yet it is still the best seller today.

However, in a change from the mainstream, Adele’s “Someone Like You” from 2011 became the first song with only piano and vocals to reach number one on the US pop charts. In 2014, with her 1989 album, Taylor Swift became the most popular country music performer ever to record an album entirely pop music. Hip-hop continues to play an important role in mainstream pop music with Drake emerging as one of the top pop artists of 2016.
