Who’s the lying’ ass bitch now?
When the Fallon/Bachmann controversy first exploded, Questlove issued a statement claiming that his decision to introduce the Congresswoman to the show with the Fishbone song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” was “tongue-in-cheek” and a “spur-of-moment decision.”
In a Nov. 21 interview with “Rolling Stone,” Questlove told the interviewer of his plans to do exactly what he did:
“I’m gunning for Bachmann,” Questlove, a vocal Obama fan, told Rolling Stone. To put a time stamp on the comment, the magazine wrote that during the interview, he was “looking up walk-on songs for next week’s shows.”
Continued Questlove, “I want to try and do Fishbone’s ‘Lyin’ Ass Bitch.’ I just don’t know if I’m gonna tell Jimmy.”
Is this acceptable to NBC and to Jimmy Fallon?
Well, we’re talking about NBC here, so I’m guessing that it is.
