Hold The Press. . . . . literally

Body confidence is short in demand in this day and age.  Young girls are growing up wanting to have that amazing body and women are going under the knife and other extremes to create that illusion.  Once I saw this post on IG I had to think twice.  I believe Kim K is an amazing marketing tool and because she promotes something it will most likely sell. She has a great body.  But she is not an idol, I don’t care how you got somewhere but it does matter how you maintain your position.  She continously “sells”  her body to keep her status because that is all she has.  I don’t mind but when I see her name attached to something that she doesn’t represent, it irritates me.  In my opinion, I don’t believe she has self – belief, she doesn’t use her power to help girls/women find their own confidence, to find themselves.  Honestly, she seems to not have it herself, she is a puppet in the entertainment industry. She complains about her body constantly on KUWTK, so why are you trying to promote body confidence?  Her “style” is initiated by Kanye.  She didn’t dress like that before. Use Zoe Saldana, Khloe/Kourtney  K, Beyoncé, Fergie, Miley Cyrus. . . . . These women constantly express how society warps our mind with what we should look like but they also express this is how they look and there is nothing wrong with that.  Confidence and Empowerment goes hand in hand and I don’t believe Kim K should promote something she clearly states she doesn’t have.  My friend is always promoting Lauren Hill,  Aaliyah because they were always enforcing the improvement of self. But now we have to filter our minds to ensure we don’t fall prey to such idiocracies.

*this is not to knock any one down but simply my thoughts on an issue that I constantly see.  To each it’s own.

Side Note: Pray as if it’s up to God. Work as if it’s up to you.

You can always pray and ask God to do everything for you but you in return also have to put in work. You need to ready your land for the prosperous harvest that is bound to grow as long as you nurture it.

The Real(ness)

So as I am sitting, anxiously, trying to finish my 600 word essay ( I know- not that difficult). I began to side track, answering text messages, checking Instagram. . . when I’m scrolling through my group message (with my 3 besties-yes I still use that word) and I see something about Chris Brown + The Real. Now I love The Real and think it’s a good show, despite it’s sometimes bland moments. And I support Chris Brown as an artist, he is very talented. So, I go to Google !! (don’t we all) and I see multiple post about this and decided to read them all. Hello, Procrastinator! Tamar, Adrienne, and Mai had a lot of words to say about Chris Brown and Kaurreche’s relationship. The topic that they were on, Chris’ relationship fit the details. Playing DEVILS ADVOCATE: With that being said I don’t believe it was respectful for them to do that. They are celebrities and celebrities will always get bashed but if KeKe Palmer had a “Gold Diggers” segment on her show and mentioned Vince and Tamars relationship she would throw a lot of shade because she would be offended. Eventhough Tamar would try to shrug it off in her Nice/Nasty way, she would be offended. Saying that, I understand where Chris Brown is coming from and he felt the need to say something back. The way he said it was just a disrespectful as what they said but that is his opinion, his instagram, his career. One thing that I have learned is that publicity is good, good or bad and honestly The Real is a good show but is it really getting as high ratings as expected? Prob not!! So to bash Chris Brown gives them that, it goes with their show and for Chris Brown to lash out about it shows how “bad of a person” he is. So either way The Real wins. On the topic overall, I don’t think Brown is bad for Kaurreche, he has his moments and he did leave her once for Rihanna but I believe overall they are good for each other. He seems happy with her and she seems happy with him, no extraness included. “What would Beyonce do?” No comment!!

Peace, LOVE, and Chicken Grease

Make sure nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what’s good for each other and for everyone else
