It’s a contradiction of my personality.I love Empowering Women, but also love someone who talks about self-love. I don’t think that the beautiful women of Glee are personified outside of their characters unless they sell their sexuality.
Most of these women over the age of thirty reinvent themselves to gain exposure. Naya Rivera has chosen to stay fresh among the new coming talent even if she appears to be evolving into a Romanian woman, right before our eyes.However, we can not ignore the evidence.
Why do we lighten our skin, and assume that being ethnically ambiguous will earn more money? If that were true we would not embrace Lupita Nyong. I wear weave and have a lighter shade of skin,but it is genetics. My parents are considered black,but my great grandmother could walk through southern streets during segregation, because she could pass for white. Even when she was harassed teased,her and her sisters still knew who they were. “The White Girls” became their name. They were of German,Indian and African descent. We have to stop assuming that exotic is better, or any racial classification will gain success. That is the entire plan of the “Willie Lyche Letter” and it apparently worked.
Faith Evans was competition for Mary J Blige…
Mary J Blige surpassed Faith Evans and the other diva’s albums were distributed with a very limited individual control or artistic freedom. Faith Evans was at the top, in the 1990’s and should be respected more in the musical game. All of theses divas were competition in all arenas Grammy performances, and soul collaborations. Concert tours, endorsements, appearances and then nothing…
Faith Evan’s releases an album with little or no promotion from anyone these days.
She is apparently on KOCH Records…
Faith was on a reality show, with women that were of course almost C list singers, but she quit that too. Faith deserves so much more, with her unmatchable voice and ability. She has changed her reputation, and still the same results.
Why did we forget about Faith?
“I’m really an inner spirit that only makes itself known through the music.
A lot of people think I’m an introvert, or quiet and moody.
I’ve even heard some people say that there’s a certain mystery or darkness about me.
I’m not that way. I’m just really into what I do.”- Quote from Faith Evans
