Rhythm And Blues. A style of music denotable by its bluesy guitar sounds and deep vocalising, that dates back to about the 1930s. Nowadays the phrase Rnb has been coined by slow rap music, where the actual phrase rhythm and blues is no londer relevant. A general feeling that moaning about someones make believe situations counts as blues, whereas genuine rnb was started during the derpression in america, where the blues were a reflection of human uncertaintey and not the modern day idea of rnb (i.e. flashing money and cars and women and whining about girls)

In the modern world, the best evidence of the strength of the "Sex Sells" motif, and the willingness of people to conform to anything that appears to rebel against former generations' ideas and beliefs in regard to morals. Usually regardless of the lack of sense in opposing these, such as the taboo against drug abuse.

Basically, it's incoherent songs about drugs and sex. The videos will always have scantily clad women in them, to distract male viewers from the fact the song is inherently crap.

Despite the fact R'n'B generally depicts women as sex objects, it as a genre is surprisingly popular among teenage girls.
Turn on MTV. Too scared? Fine:

"Its gettin hot in here (so hot)
So take off all your clothes

(Female singer) I am gettin so hot, I wanna take my clothes off"

Imagine that repeating or being paraphrased in every new verse. That, I fear, is the current state of R'n'B.

A form of "music" which grew up in the black slave population in america as rythm and blues, going by this definition you would immediately think of artists such as ella fitzgerald and louis armstrong, however this is no longer the case, R'n'B has now been taken over by young rap artists who have adopted it as a trademark for their own music which nearly always dipicts women as sex objects, or is about the act of sex itself and is generally just any black music nowadays whether it has any rhythm and blues or not. Often listened to "wide-boys" and "chav's"
Usher - how is this guy blues, never a decent bassline, the rhythm is always the same, and he wears the biggest glasses ever. therefore not R'n'B

Nelly - Who gave this guy a recording contract, he did a good tune with justin timberlake, however the rest is nothing special nd definately not rhythm and blues

A style of music which has now evolved into a style of Hip-Hop especially made for 13yr old girls who pretend that Usher is their boyfriend.

The so called RnB "stars" are probably not the talent behind the music, and the supposed stars are actually models.

RnB fans are usually teenage girls with the intelligence of a frog.
They treat anyone who doesn't listen as fools of society, when in reality, they are exactly what they make other people out to be.
