Ian in Your Ear: Tiger Woods: The Song!
Yep, I'm with you: so over the Tiger Woods scandal. Didn't care that much from the beginning, but I found a way to make it all a bit more palatable.
Brooklyn-bred MC Maino just released a song named after the pro golfer and its getting lotsa attention on the net (sample lyric: "I got women in the 'burbs / Women in the hood / Yeah my wifey mad 'cause she knows I'm no good / Man I'm just a dog / I'd be faithful if I could / But I'm Tiger Woods / Yeah, I'm Tiger Woods").
I spoke to the song's creator and he says not to take it too literally: "While I was in L.A. someone approached me and said 'What do you think about doing a record about Tiger Woods?' I thought for a second and was like 'that's a hell of an idea.' The next thing you know, I'm in the studio the following day recording the song. The song I created is called "Tiger Woods" but it's not about him. I use Tiger as a metaphor to describe myself and what I'm going through. I love women and instead of calling myself a cheater, I say I'm Tiger Woods."
