    Talking Three 6 Mafia plays at the Oscars!?!?! Has hell frozen over???

    Three 6 Mafia Promise "Clean" Performance


    Hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia have vowed that their performance of "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" during Sunday's Oscar ceremony will be suitable for a family audience. The songwriters have reworked the lyrics of their controversial Oscar-nominated song, which was performed in the film Hustle And Flow by Terrence Howard. Singer Jordan 'Juicy J' Houston says, "We took out all the cuss words, dotted some 'i's and crossed some 't's. It's going to be a clean show. You can let your kids watch it, and they don't have to wear ear muffs." The Memphis, Tennessee band will be the first hip-hop group to perform during the Oscar ceremony. Houston considers it bad luck to prepare a thank you speech before the ceremony saying, "I'm not gonna jinx myself. If I was to win, then I'll just deal with it when I get on that stage."

    omg i've been a fan for a long time and I can't beleive this nasty dirty group is playing the Oscars! I swear I thought this day would never come in my wildest wierdest dreams from hell but good for them; it'll get them soem recognition they deserve

    I guess they're trying to make it more appealing to younger people. Since they have been getting low ratings. The oscars do sound boring, but cool that they will be performing.

    Didn't Eminem win for "Lose Yourself?" That was rap too. But I guess (for once) Eminem had the less controversial title.

    ^^Oh yea! I think Eminem did win a few years ago--and he didn't even show up for it. Which the Academy probably preferred....

    The song was horrible.. the only worthwhile element in it was the chick who was belting out the chorus.

    The rest of it was a stupid rap mishmash, almost incoherent.

    What I don't get with a lot of rap artists is why they choose Mafia names. (3-6 Mafia, Junior Mafia, Irv Gotti) The real Mafia were some of the most racist people around. Maybe I'm over-analyzing it...

    Three 6 Mafia Steals Oscar Song Award

    Forget the suspense over best movie or actor or actress - the real question on Oscar night was whether Three 6 Mafia could actually perform a cuss-free, non-graphic version of "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp."

    In one of the most exciting performances for a best song, usually characterized by bland performances of even blander songs, the Memphis rap group gave a rousing rendition of their song from "Hustle & Flow," then took the Oscar home to boot.
    They are probably the only Oscar winners to pick up their trophy wearing throwback jerseys, sneakers and diamond-studded teeth. Though they thanked all the same people Phillip Seymour Hoffman would - their mothers, family, etc. - their euphoric, giddy delivery made the moment even more surreal.

    "I just couldn't believe it. I couldn't stand still," Jordan "Juicy J" Houston said backstage. "I had to run somewhere. I started to run somewhere. People thought the police was probably chasing me somewhere."


    It wasn't exactly something you'd see on the Source Awards, with the "Fame"-like dancers and choreography. But the performance from the group best known for their raw street-life rhymes stayed true to the gritty essence of the song.

    "Hustle" actress Taraji P. Henson, who sang the irresistible hook in the movie, also belted it out on Oscar night (wearing a cocktail dress): "It's hard out here for a pimp, when you tryin' to get the money for the rent, with the Cadillac and gas money spent, you got a whole lot of witches jumpin' ship." Of course, "witches" was not the word used in the movie version. We'll let you guess which word that was.

    Still, despite toning down the lyrics, Three 6 Mafia was bleeped once during their performance because ABC censors thought they heard the f-word (a network spokeswoman said they couldn't be sure what was said). And they got another bleep during their giddy acceptance speech, for the same reason.

    Hey, it's hard out there for pimp, if you didn't know. It certainly was the most animated performance of the three Oscar-nominated songs on the night - and, surprisingly, the least garish.

    The latter honor belonged to whoever came up with the staging for "In The Deep" from "Crash." Attempting to recreate one of the most riveting scenes from the movie, the stage was transformed into a triage scene, with a flaming car, wounded victims and other people representing the movie's main characters walking around in slow motion, looking dazed. Bird York, the singer-songwriter nominated for "In the Deep," performed with a glazed look.

    The most sedate performance of the evening was Dolly Parton. Dressed in a white pantsuit with no background or backup performers, she delivered a compelling performance for her inspirational song about acceptance, "Travelin' Through," from "Transamerica."

    Though Three 6 Mafia was the first African-American rap group to win the honor, they are not the first - Eminem was the groundbreaker for his trophy for "Lose Yourself" from "8 Mile."

    But Eminem did not show up to accept his award. Three 6 Mafia did, emphatically.

    "That's how you accept an Oscar," joked host Jon Stewart.

    "For anyone keeping record," Stewart said later, "Martin Scorsese, zero Oscars. For Three 6 Mafia, one."

    -you could replace Three 6 Mafia w/ Gywnth Paltrow's name here and it'd be really funnier.

    And you're right, insert Paltrows name in there and it's even better the bitch.

    They sucked, but it was funny seeing how scared all the white people were I bet some of the old ones peed their pants.
