Is Cardi B’s Skin Thick Enough To Be An A-Lister?

mm

Published

At this point, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days, you know about the heated war of words and insults between Cardi B and Azealia Banks. 

The feud, which was originally ignited in 2017 when Banks referred to Bardi as, “the poor man’s Nicki Minaj” and an “illiterate, untalented rat” was reignited, set ablaze, and burnt to a crisp, over comments Banks made during an interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’.

In the interview, Banks discussed how the popularity and promotion of Cardi B were actually “setting black women back”, because of what she represents. “I didn’t know the bar had been dropped“. Implying that Cardi isn’t a good representation for women of color. She also states,  “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”

After Bank’s interview, Cardi B responded with the following post and then deleted her Instagram page.

Cardi B has stated on more than one occasion that she doesn’t like being famous. Wendy “Wendell Bartholemew Orenthal” Williams called her out stating, “she needs to stop complaining, she hasn’t been famous long enough to complain!

I concur she is always addressing the haters, instead of relishing in all the love and support she gets. If she doesn’t want it, I know Joseline would gladly take it.

Undoubtedly, critics such as Funk Flex, Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, Joseline Hernandez, Kashdoll, and others are going to exist. They say “you ain’t popping if you don’t have haters”.

My lil 15 minutes lasting long as hell!”

If Cardi B intends to have longevity in the music industry (more than 15 min), especially on the level of Rihanna, Drake, Migos, Beyonce and other A-Listers, she has to develop a thicker skin. It is very easy to see that Cardi has a kind heart, made of gold and a gentle, delicate soul. Unfortunately, that makes her easy prey.

Take a page out of the great Book of Mariah Huq. Otherwise, go back to being C-List, Instagram and reality show famous. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact, she may be happier.

Don’t Come Down Off Your Chariot Girl! 

Beyonce, Usher, Madonna, Gaga and so many others have at some point had their name, business and talent drug through the mud. However, they allow the people to talk, their PR team handles the scandals and BS and they pay it dust, while appearing unbothered.

Stop letting the people see you sweat!

If you can’t take the criticism that comes along with the position, your options are:

1. Be Miserable trying to address non-supporters.

2. Allow someone else to oversee your social media pages.

3. Ignore them!

4. Give it up!

We are all (well most of us) are rooting for you! Good Luck!

Su-I-(De)-Cide

Published

Su-I-(De)-Cide. Really?! Are you deciding to commit suicide when you let yourself become just “one of them?”

Budding author Olivia Thompson thinks so as she takes us on a journey to discover what “living” means when who we are is pre-determined by everyone and everything that came before us. In her four short stories, we meet Zaba, a college-bound student fighting against social stigmas after learning her best friend is HIV positive; Raven, who does anything to force a drug dealer to feel the consequences of his choices; Kiyomi, who struggles to survive each new day, and; a nameless character who can be anyone of us in the midst of conflict. Through these stories, we learn that life is a beautiful experience, but it also has a habit of breaking people.

Although Miss Thompson began writing at three, this is her first publication. Born with a stutter that made her afraid to speak and the victim of bullying, she dove into creating imaginary worlds where characters used a voice she was too afraid to use herself. Behind the desktop, she was in control. Yet, as she got older she learned that no one is ever in control, and her imaginary worlds took a different turn.

Her debut title, Su-I-(De)-Cide, is available now on Amazon!

#MuteRKelly vs #TurnRKellyUp

mm

Published

on

In retaliation of the Mute R Kelly campaign, which was launched because of the inhumane treatment of women, many of which who were under the legal age of consent, in an alleged sex cult and harem, Kelly has been accused of running for many years.

Kelly has launched the Turn R Kelly Up movement. Over the weekend during his show in North Carolina, Kelly gave out t-shirts and briefly addressed the crowd, with what appeared to be a “woe is me” cry for support.

 

Watch the plea here:

Kelly has been accused of sleeping with teenagers for years. He was first accused of marrying singer Aaliyah when she was only 15 years old, that marriage was annulled. He was then accused of sleeping with singer Sparkle’s niece, while she was only 14 years old and making the infamous sex tape, in which his reputation for giving out golden showers precedes him to this day.

Quite frankly, Kelly’s reputation overall is absolutely horrific. There are countless stories regarding how Kelly has a God complex because he has been able to get away with a lot of sick and twisted acts, with little to no repercussions.

Kelly Was Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

The singer was arrested in June of 2002 on child pornography charges, he posted $750,000 bail but then was arrested again in January 2003 on 16 additional child pornography charges, when photos of a naked, underage girl were found on his computer.

In addition to the accurately depicted Pied Piper persona, Kelly has also severed ties with his brother, Carey Kelly, who he expected to take the fall for his devious behavior, in addition to singers Neyo, Jay Z, and countless others, because of his superiority complex.

Recently, celebrities such as John Legend, Shonda Rimes, Viola Davis have banded in the #TimesUp movement to mute R Kelly, which has resulted in music platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music pulling back on the promotion of Kelly’s music. His music will still be available, it just won’t be highlighted.

Kelly’s Team Jumps Ship

In addition, Kelly’s female attorney, publicist, and assistant have also jumped ship. This can’t be a good sign. I’m sure they know much more about the inner workings of what goes on with Kelly’s alleged occult, behind closed doors. They don’t want to go down with him, permanently ruining their name and reputation, by supporting a predator.

It truly appears that all of Kelly’s dirt and wrongdoings are about to catch up to him. Although there will always be those that turn a blind eye to the singer’s misdeeds because he is such a gifted artist (which is reflected in his sold-out performance over the weekend in Fayetteville, NC).

#ItsAboutDamnTime Movement

Soon and very soon we will be transitioning from #TimesUp to #ItsAboutDamnTime, and others that follow behind R Kelly will think twice before violating young, impressionable women ever again. Until then, we are waiting and watching, with popcorn in hand.
