Things I wanted to get off my chest before the New Year

31 Dec

Somebody PLEASE tell Kandi to stop wearing those godforsaken shirts that look like vaginas. I’ve ranted on twitter since the start of the RHOA season. She needs a friend on that show that will tell her she needs to step it up. Does she see how Sheree glams up for her one-on-ones? Get it together Kandi.

The internet was kind enough to have removed or simply ignored Kandi’s shirts, categorizing them as pornography. But any viewing of a RHOA marathon will piss you off as much as they have me.

I really had a problem with Rihanna this year. Including her invading my brain in the morning.  I really felt some kinda way when I woke up with “oh nana, what’s my name” kept playing on repeat as I woke up. But, alas. I guess it stems from the fact that I really had a problem with Rihanna on Eminem’s last hit song, The Way you Lie.  Now nearly two years ago this February, we lambasted Chris Brown for his domestic violence attack against Rihanna. Both suffered publicly. So, when Rihanna comes back singing / cosigning on a song with Eminimen that condones and encourages violence against a woman, or your partner for that matter, I was more than a little pissed off. These are the lyrics specifically that I had a problem with:

If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Simply inappropriate. And this is when I start looking at Rihanna with a side-eye for the role she played in her situation. I’m not saying it’s right….but did she learn anything from the situation. Like….it’s not right to condone domestic violence in your music, right…..

And briefly, the #HoSitDown award goes to…..Keri Hilson. Take your halfway ’empowering’ Pretty Girls Rock somewhere while you expose your vagina for the world to see in those trashy videos. You’re not my hero. You’re talented, but I’m offended that you think I’m a gynecologist.

I'm not qualified, nor do I want to inspect your ladyparts Ms. Hilson

And the #DoBetter award goes to Fantasia. Sorry boo.

Somebody needs to help Fantasia out.

      Good points. It is good to hear insightful and solid points. I just had a thought: when we were younger, when were told not to say “hate”. Now the word has becoming a linking verb use in pop culture…often times suggesting something bad about another person. Reading the blog above was a bit insightful than “hating”. It incorporated various layers of observation, some comic relief, and actually seem more like “a letter from a fan”….the forbidding word “….”. Good job to writer and hope folk keep expressing themselves. Oh, I can’t wait to read the update in Fantasia, who is sort of back on top of her career with help of BD Mgmt.

        Yeah “ABrother” I agree with you on the prevailing attitude of “hate” that has invaded our culture. It’s like a mean girl syndrome. Why hate would be more popular than love to me is a challenge and a travesty. Let’s do better in 2011.
        And I’ll look into a Fantasia update. She deserves more coverage here if she is indeed on the rise.

      It seems trolls have found the blog. Thank you for the traffic. And I agree, Keri and I aren’t on the same level. When you grow up, you’ll learn no one appreciates mindgames.

    All of these were good points. Glad you were able to get them off your chest.

    You have given me another reason to be grateful that I do not watch RHOA. Shirts that look like vaginas? I can’t even picture that.

    The side-eye is the very least of what Rihanna should get for that nonsense. You WOULD think that someone who has been in an abusive relationship (or any one with any sense of decency and/or disdain for domestic violence) would take issue with those lyrics. Eminem is clearly troubled so I don’t expect much from him; but he never claimed to be a victim either.

    RE: Keri Hilson, et al, I have been so turned off over the years by these female “artists” who feel they have to be over the top to sell. All the semi-nudity and obscene dance moves in videos is ridiculous. If you can sing, sing! If you can’t, go do something else. Jill Scott said it best “I have on all my clothes, and I can still sing…”

    Poor Fantasia…

      Thanks Ojo! It was a brief rant, and I do have a few more things to get off my chest. Come back to visit and read more.

    First time visiting your site and I have to say… I loved your comments!

    Entertaining (so funny) AND on point!!

    Effectively stated what most of us are feeling about Ms. Keri, baby who btw, is diminishing her own talent by passing over actual music and heading straight to PORN!
