This Week: Travis Barker Confesses, TI Fucks Up, and Taylor Swift's Lady Obsession

How can we sum up this week? Let's just say it wasn't stellar for hip-hop artists talking about women, and that Lady Gaga and Travis Barker have very different ideas about waste receptacles. We'll let the quotes of the week do the rest of the talking…

“Not to be sexist, but I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman… Women make rash decisions emotionally… And I sure would hate to set off a nuke… I think you would be able to get the Loch Ness Monster elected before…”
TI proving that every sentence that has ever started with the phrase “Not to be sexist…” is always, always, always mind-blowingly sexist. (DJ Whoo Kid)

“Honey child, hush your mouth. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
If Oprah Winfrey was ever a TI fan, it’s safe to say she isn’t now. (TMZ)

[jump] “My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended.”
Too late, TI! Oprah already heard you! (Twitter)

“How can I be misogynist / I love titties and ass / How can I be homophobic when my boyfriend’s a fag.”
Tyler The Creator, on new track, “Fuck It”. (YouTube)

So… This is a thing that's happening:

Lady Gaga. (Born This Way Foundation)

'I was so addicted to Oxycodone, and I had a security that would actually sleep during the day and then stay up at night to make sure I was breathing. That was pretty pathetic… I had this moment when… I really identified myself as a dumpster. And I wasn't proud. I was scared.”
Someone got paid to watch Travis Barker sleep. Let's all think about that for a second. (Billboard)

“I honestly think my lack of female friendships in high school and middle school is why my female friendships are so important now. Because I always wanted them. It was just hard for me to have friends.”
Finally! An explanation for Taylor Swift’s model wrangling. (GQ)

And finally, it’s not just the sports world sending positivity to Lamar Odem:
