In other music news, rapper Rick Ross put out a mixtape called "Black Bar Mitzvah." The music seems to have very little to do with anything Jewish, except for a segment called "Rosenberg Skit," in which New York DJ Peter Rosenberg pretends to be the rabbi presiding over Ross' coming-of-age ceremony – though he says things no self-respecting rabbi would say. Jewish rapper Drake also appears on the album, though he does not follow up his HYFR video with more Jewish references.Last but not least, Israeli actress Meital Dohan started a career as a pop star in 2011, and has been singing in minimal – but very sparkly – clothing ever since. Her latest song is a collaboration with singer-rapper Sean Kingston that makes her sound like a low-rent Ke$ha.The Weekly Schmooze collects the hottest Jewish culture news from around the world.
