    Gwyneth Paltrow defends use of 'N' word in song title

    Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has defended herself against allegations of racism after she used the 'N' word in a Twitter post while referring to a popular Jay-Z and Kanye West song.
    Paltrow accompanied her best pal Beyonce to watch the singer's husband perform with West during their "Watch The Throne" tour stop in Paris on Friday, and she was overjoyed to be invited up onstage during a special remix of their single "N**gas in Paris," which they performed a whopping 11 times in a row.

    She later posted a photo of herself dancing alongside the rappers on Twitter with the caption, "Ni**as in paris for real."
    The comment prompted some fans to attack Paltrow for using the racial slur, which sparked debate on numerous blogs - but the actress has brushed off the controversy and called for critics to calm down. Responding to the online uproar on Sunday, she wrote, "Hold up. It's the title of the song!"
    Paltrow and Beyonce weren't the only celebrity fans at the Paris gig: Former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland joined the pair, while Justin Bieber was also in the audience.

    Is this why there shouldnt be the use of that word?

    We shouldn't use it. But last I checked, it's the word of White people's.

    Yes, but why are we complaining when Yurugu uses Yurugu's words?

    It's no issue that they call us by the wrong name. The issue is that we respond to it.

    Paltrow referenced a song. Kanye West and Jay-Z, African role-models, called us by the wrong name and responded thereupon.

    The admonishment goes the latter camp, not the former.

    I expect an Englishman to speak English.

    That's my point. We should chastise them for using it. We should write radio stations for playing it and any other idiotic songs that bring us down. Like, "Young and wild and free"

    Mother fu-- There's 66 million views on "Young wild and Free!"

    The name reminds of "Young gifted and Black."

    How we fell.

    Oh and geez I started listening to it. What in the world? That really aired? A Sister was right--we stopped owning the production companies.

    Exactly! A song that glorifies getting drunk and high to mostly prepubescent teens

    "WE" not going to stop using it. Conquered people have psychology problems, it just comes out in different ways, you see it all over Earth. Native Americans with alcoholism, Australian Aboriginal with high suicide rates etc.

    "OUR" problem is no racially self respect.

    We been given this lable and we have embraced it through programing and mental whitewashing to love this word with
    a smile and we took it on made many ways to express it we address another with it , we use it in titles but yet get upset
    about it ....O' how confused we are as a people ................WE SHOULD LET GO AND KILL THE WORD AND REMOVE IT FROM
    OUR MENTAL THINKING !!!
    Rappers / speakers / brothers sisters black people cross the nation should rid this word forever
    sad and a shame we love anything this american system and people push at us...........whewww!!!!

    It is possible that she used this word in a slick and derogatory way. Her friends let her say it with them on stage,then she has the green light, no matter how it was intended the artists named their song nword so it is on them.
