”If I say somebody looks like a camel, they look like a camel. If I say somebody was wearing sandals, they was wearing sandals.” No, that’s not Isaac Mizrahi defending his Golden Globes preshow. It’s rapper Cam’ron mocking Jay-Z’s looks and, um, shoes while recently hawking Killa Season, his upcoming CD and direct-to-DVD flick. The feud turned Super Ugly when Cam leaked a track accusing Jay of jacking lyrics from Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Biggie, among others. (At press time, Jigga remains mum about the snipe.) We can forgive Cam for courting controversy to drive sales, but accusing another guy of wearing mandals? That’s indefensible.
