MY 2 CENTSOk,I may not be the best person to be making comments on leaving certain celebrities alone due to the fact I am a gossip queen but really some things have gotten out of hand.
The whole Beyonce takedown is ridiculous.What makes it ridiculous is it's her own people that do so.Why can't we ever support our own unconditionally,we have to say she's too thick,too skinny,her weaves are too long,her skin too tan,she's a bitch,she's lightened, she acts white,she's too ghetto.Can't we congratulate her on being on the cover of Vanity Fair and being the first black woman to do so in over 10 years??Whether she was lightened or not..WE KNOW SHE"S BLACK!! Some people act like she pulled a Michael Jackson.
When she was on the cover of Essence nobody said shit,now when on the white magazine she gotta be this and that.
Now I myself have recently poked fun at Fantasia for her not being able to read,but it's the nature of this site and a few others to be funny and mock certain things.But when I see real media only looking at Fantasia as the posterchild for illiteracy it's shameful...what about her being raped at 14,what about being a single mother on welfare and despite all 3 of those obstacles,making her biggest dream come true and she could have quietly got a tutor and learned to read but she went public to help others.Now her hometown wants to take down signs that read "Welcome to High Point, home of Fantasia Barrino." because she talks badly of her hometown but that hometown failed her and her family..fuck them(High Point) too.
That was my 2 cents.Researching through media of all forms to get the latest scoop or piece of gossip, I came across way too many people getting a negative light for little or no reason.Now,Paris Hilton...she deserves it!
Now let the backlash of me begin!
