SEAL CLUBBING RAPPERS: Now he's got something almost approaching a profile again, Seal has launched an attack on rappers:

"It's sad when you see the rappers on TV and in the videos making these derogatory videos towards women ... kind of like sexual objects."

It might seem a bit strange for Seal to suddenly get a bit upset about this sort of thing when he's about to marry, um, a swimsuit model...

... but we're sure there's a diffence we're just missing. But Seal has more to say:

"It's sad because we're damaging our own. Like, in different cultures, you would never see that."


He added: "Take for example the Jewish culture. They've been persecuted just like the black people, right? But you never see them eating their own. They don't. But we will.

"I really feel that there is a responsibility and what goes around comes around."

We know it's not what he meant, but with the ages-old slanders about Jews eating babies, he might have wanted to have put a bit more thought into the phrase "You never see [Jews] eating their own..."
