True Thursdays: Drake Makes Another OK Music Video

I’m not sure how much of a failure my title is today…BUT, it doesn’t matter – it’s still time to get it!

Drake

For those of you living under a rock, Drake’s video for “The Motto”  dropped yesterday. Honestly, as much as I love this song, I’m not sure that I like the video.

I’m wondering if it’s Drake’s bad winter apparel and Nike gloves that are causing me to be iffy about this one. I mean, let’s me honest. What boy wears a leopard print Northface? Not to mention, Wayne is “stuntin” in neon green moon boots… If I was a robber, I’d definitely bypass this crowd. Anyways, making OK music videos seems to be a common trend with Drake. Whenever I love one of his songs, I usually don’t like the video for it. Examples are as follows:

“Headlines”

“Best I Ever Had,”

“Find Your Love”

“Any Drake Video”

All I can do now is hope that the video for “Take Care” is a good one because I LOVE that song!

Bonus Post: Who’s Baaad?

Meeeeeeeee. I always wanted to use that MJ line….

Moving on!

This is the first time I’ve logged onto my blog in a minute. I just checked my dashboard, and it looks like you boys and girls keep reading, which means that I need to keep writing. I promise my disappearance is not my fault. Sometimes life comes at you fast and you have to make some serious moves. For the past month, I’ve been trying to find another job. And, guess whaaaaaat?! I have one, and start on Monday.  Salaried with benefits. Boom!

This means I am back! 😉 Well….at least for a while until the next life issue comes up. Side-eye. lol

I don’t even know what people are talking about anymore, which is sad. Is Reese Witherspoon being struck by a car or Lil Wayne’s The Carter IV the bigger story nowadays?

Do people care about either? Okay, maybe that’s a little cold. I’m sure people care about Reese being hit by an 80 year old driver. Lil Wayne….eh, not so much. Of course, selling almost 1 million albums in the first week is a pretty big accomplishment. Whether you love Weezy or hate him, he remains on top.

Anyways, let’s cheers to my return with some MJ!

LOVE!

 

 

Hot Mess Mondays: The Men Are Dominating

Not in a good way…

Good morning boys and girls!

I’m feeling a little under the weather this morning, but that’s why it’s good that it’s a Hot Mess Monday. lol Now, I know that Hot Mess Mondays usually focus on the ridiculousness that went down the week before, but I’ve come across some pretty interesting news this morning that has to make this list.

Let’s get it!

1) Any celebrity male that is accused of pedophilia.

 

Bishop Eddie Long

 

This morning on Hip Hop Wired, it was reported that Raz B, former member of the R&B boyband B2K, was speaking out against celebrity pedophiles, including Eddie Long, Chris Stokes, and Marques Houston. Marques Houston?!

 

Chris Stokes and Marques Houston

 

For those of you who are less familiar with Marques Houston’s music career, you may know him as the lovable Roger from the hit TV show Sister Sister. Now, this is the first time I have heard anything like this  about him, but who knows with these celebrities sometimes…As for Eddie Long and Chris Stokes, they both have been publicly accused of such misbehavior in the past. In fact, Eddie Long is dealing with his decision to have “Spiritual Sons” right now. Smh…

Here’s the article about Raz-B, calling out the three men. —> Raz B of B2K Calls Out Pedophiles

2) Alicia Keys for acting like she’s done nothing wrong.

It’s old news that Ms. Keys got together with her husband, producer Swizz Beatz, before he was divorced from his wife. However, now that Alicia is pregnant, she’s been seen flaunting her baby bump all over the place. Now, I know that the girl can’t escape the cameras, but the story of how her marriage and baby bump all came together equals serious judgment. Maybe Alicia should go live a quieter life for a while? Just a thought…

p.s. Ms. Keys is also a hot mess for never releasing a video for “Put It In A Love Song.” When I first started this blog, there were stills of her and Beyonce making the video in Brazil. But, where is it, Alicia? Where is it? lol

Anyways…

3) T.I. for facing 14 months prison time.

Honestly, T.I. is just making some pretty stupid decisions. He’ll be on this list until he gets it together.

4) Lil’ Wayne for also making stupid decisions while already in jail.

Not too long ago, Wayne was ordered to solitary confinement for being caught with an mp3 player at his latest home on Rikers Island. Wayne will remain in solitary confinement until he is released on Nov. 4th. A mess….If anything, Wayne can take pride in the fact that he still continues to sell plenty of music while incarcerated. Unfortunately, his success on the Billboard charts does not excuse his behavior.

5) Christopher Columbus for having a holiday.

Okay, so this entry is a little extra…lol However, seeing as though today is Columbus Day, I think it’s a hot mess that after all of the truth that has come out about Christopher Columbus that we still honor him with his own holiday. Sure, he discovered the Americas for Spain, but let’s not forget that plenty of people (i.e. the Native Americans) had reached America long before Christopher. Not to mention, Christopher and his men were outrageously cruel to the people they came into contact with.

Today there’s an article in The Huffington Post about Columbus Day, and I think it’s worth a read.

Check it out. —> Columbus Day? True Legacy – Cruelty and Slavery

Thoughts?

**And, with that, today’s Hot Mess countdown is over. Sadness I know…Hopefully, some of these celebrities get their acts together/ some psychological help.
