To Catch A Hollywood Predator: Nicki Minaj and the Cycle of Abuse

With the cancellation of "To Catch A Predator" a few years back, the American public needs a new outlet in which to indulge their voyeuristic cop and criminal fantasies.
We suggest that they switch their investigative focus to the big media conglomerates themselves if they really want to save America's children from future victimization.
Leveraging more influence than any small-time molester could even dream of having, the American 'entertainment' industry has become the international leader in selling sex to children. Just look up any video featuring Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, or, more recently, Miley Cyrus if you don't believe us, as we don't want wish to dignify or support this ring with more publicity.
But we exaggerate, don't we? Not at all. If you want some insight into the industry, consider that Lou Pearlman, founder of major 90s boy bands like The Backstreet Boys and 'NSYNC, is an accused pedophile and convicted scam artist.
The ugly face behind the Hollywood glitter indeed.
We would like to also suggest that the case of Nicki Minaj shows just how parallel the psychology of a modern celebrity is to that of a victim of sexual abuse.
Very rarely do we actually hear about the backgrounds of people that have become famous, particularly these exploited pop stars, in the media. Perhaps because this would reveal how, like the most amoral pimp in the slimiest ghetto, the star-makers search out broken people that are practically asking to be re-victimized.
Mianj's handlers are only slightly more respectable than your common predator. They've taken a human person and reduced her to nothing more to a pair of breasts and a backside — the exact same process of depersonalization a predator must undertake in order to justify sexual abuse to themselves. This is then shown to millions of young people as a kind of training video for their own futures of abuse and victimization.
And Minaj's personal history backs all of this up. New York Magazine ran a profile of her a few years back that casually documents how this 'sex symbol' just coincidentally happened to have the upbringing of your average worker in a red-light district:
This mainstream icon could, and should, be regarded as a victim on par with the little girl, desperate for love and attention, who is lured away from her broken home with a piece of candy. Indeed, this whole habit of personal dissociation in alter egos often indicates a history of abuse and an attempt to recreate it in the safety of an alienated persona. Numerous medical studies have confirmed this, such that it is an operating hypothesis on which to judge her behavior:
This is the reality behind the superficial sexual image, and it should make anyone with a conscience shudder that millions of their fellow countrymen partake in what is basically a massive exploitation ring.
Every time you watch a Nicki Minaj video and think those bizarre, disjointed expressions on her face are just some kind of weird affectation, remember all the pain and darkness she is trying to conceal in her ill-fated search for love and attention at any cost. Remember that the only difference between a pimp and a contemporary music promoter is that Universal Music Group is much more powerful. At least pimps are more honest about what they are offering, and don't try to pass it off as harmless pop culture.
And, most importantly, remember that every abuser wants you to think that the fulfillment of their perverse desires are the only gateway to love and affection. A little memory of better times may suggest otherwise:
