Why anyone would participate in the hateration of Michael Jordan—Mary J. Blige's word, not mine—is one of life's weird mysteries. You don't have to respect him as a family man, a cardboard-cutout husband. You don't have to like his gambling escapades. You can regret, as I do, that he resumed his career and put an unnecessary dent in the rear end of his legacy.

First Use:
Don't need no hateration, holleration
In this dance for me
Let's get it percolatin', while you're waiting
So just dance for me

Like frienemy (posted March 3, 2004), this word also originated in the lyrics of a popular song. The coiner this time is hip-hop soul diva Mary J. Blige, who used the word in her 2001 single, "Family Affair" (see the first use, above). Thanks to Russell Shaddox for sending this word my way.
