Ice T Debuts Porn Site

You can call rapper/actor Ice T a lot of things: controversial,

dirty-minded, foul-mouthed, even offensive, but not pornographer. Until now. T,

who has a long-standing and oft-proclaimed appreciation for the scantily-clad

female form, has joined the legions of on-line smut peddlers by unveiling the

Ice T Web Site (www.icet.com), a collaboration with adult film studio VCA

Pictures and something called Babenet, LTD, to create a full-service (wink,

wink) website that caters to a web-surfing perverts' every need.

Although

when we checked (for research purposes only of course), many of the areas were

still under construction, the site, with a hefty $9.99 daily use fee, promised

diversions like: Interactive live video, ("including sex booths featuring

different nude talent in thematic rooms"), Interactive Live Sex, Strip on

Demand ("where visitors can pick the girl of their dreams in the environment of

their choice"), On-Line Movies, Audio Delights, Erotic Games, Photos and an

Adult Newsstand.

Given T's past proclivity for X-rated raps (including the

self-explanatory song "Strippers" from Body Count's new album Violent

Demise: The Last Days) and the bulging number of smut sites on the Web, the

only real question we had is, "Why hasn't another bootie-obsessed rapper thought

of this first?"

As to why T--whose latest controversy involves the

OJ-baiting video to the song "I Used to Love Her," in which he is pelted with a

rain of black gloves--got involved in this sure-to-raise-a-few-eyebrows

venture, a press release says it all. "What sets Ice T's site apart from all

others is his personal involvement in designing and developing the site... Of

course, the site will not only offer adult entertainment, but will feature

plenty of information on Ice T's work and career..."

But of course.
