You got D's, muthafucka D's, Rosie Perez
Kanye wasn’t paying attention in class and as a result, he got D’s on his test, much like the lovely Double D’s of American actress Rosie Perez
Rosie Perez criticized Kanye for this line:
I’m a woman of a certain age and if you’re gonna mention me in a song, have a little respect. He mentions my breasts. When you walk down the street and you have 15-year-old boys.. and they’re like, ‘Yo, Rosie, D’s D’s, Rosie Perez,’ it’s no good
This line is also a reference to the 1989 Spike Lee joint “Do the Right Thing” in which the character Radio Raheem yells at the Asian store clerk for D batteries for his boom box: “I want D’s motherfucker, Ds!!!” (Rosie Perez plays Mookie’s girlfriend in the film)
I’m guessing Rosie didn’t catch the allusion..
Update: Rosie Perez reveals she was flattered by the line.
