Don’t Let Fear Destroy Your Destiny!***messymandella***

 I started this site to express myself.

I have so many parts of me including love art, music, and laughter. I thought about what my friends and family would say about ***messymandella.com.*** I know that when I told people I had this site,  it would be confusion. I have only been doing this for a year. I don’t know what will happen in the future? I just know that national sites link my articles.

 

 I just knew that at first I wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything.

After I realized I could, I decided to connect with other artist and free thinkers.

MY people know  that I purposely change punctuation and verbiage because ART HAS NO RULES.

Some people laughed, or dismissed it as being crazy, or dumb.

Every writer, actor, or artist will tell you that the last people who support you are your own people.

I knew it was a joke to some people then  you get recognition. You look around and your life has completely changed, and you did it your way.

Don’t be afraid, a wise but crazy man stated, “Danger is Real, fear is in your mind.”

You will never know if you don’t embark  on that journey to find you. 

 

 I knew that there were stories that would never get told.

I also had to set so much time aside to get started, but with love and dedication hood heros, ill begotten and victims will have their say.

I know also that when I thought people had my back  some just left me stranded.

 I think the hurt is the motivation to keep going.

Don’t let anyone make you think that the problem is you, or question your artistic style.

 You can’t be free, until you are comfortable with yourself. 

There is nothing wrong with you if you spend your day listening to Wu-TangKate BushNas, and  Ray Lamontagne.

Don’t worry about close minded people.

You just have to live, and a leave a positive legacy.

If you lay under your covers, scared of the world that is your fault!

Nothing comes from just dreaming, and hoping. Actions  and positive energy have to combine.

Be You!

Keep Going!

Thank You for linking and loving me.

I love y’all for advice, respect and truth.

It means so much to me, that you except me, for being me!

I say “love” because “You are beloved” by me and every moment on this Earth is a blessing.

Enjoy your time here and think about your growth, and follow the golden rule and you will live a better way. Never compromise your artistic freedom out of fear of backlash. Just tell them to let you live. Here is some inspiration from the late great FRANK.

Billie Holiday “Strange Fruit” And Julia Holter – “World” ***messymandella***

           Have you ever been hypnotized or lifted up to another place or captivated by an original voice? With technology anyone can auto tune a singing voice. You can’t auto-tune talent. Two women with 2 different backgrounds and decades of musical separation, intrigue those that believe a unique voice is not something you can create in a studio. A voice is a gift, or as in this case, a warning to the world of confusion, and the state of the world we live in . You hear  a painful, but hauntingly beautiful  voice, but were you also listening?

                   If you have not had a chance to experience this phenomenal,  these two women will definitely relax and trouble you because of the heart-felt pain, but elaborate similarities of  their voices.




The music of the late Billie Holiday, still transforms historians because of the pain.
The demons that tortured Billie,  in her destructive life also tortured the late Whitney Houston. Yes, life plaques celebrities with beauty and talent even if it is more than  40 years apart.

Artist will usually have one addictive down-fall,  because their talent is too powerful to contain, and even in the case of Whitney, Cissy said her talent scared her.

I also deal with that  the feeling, of wondering ,”Why am I seeing this, How can I create this? Why am I telling these stories?”

       That melancholy  voice transforms the electricity in your  body, and it can’t escape you. You can imagine standing where Billie Holiday stood, when she first saw that body swinging from that tree. It is history, pain and struggle and a gift  that was merely too intense for one person to contain.


       Julia’s  Holters’ voice might be the last sound you hear before you leave this earthly life. It is a heavenly but depressing voice that haunts most. It  is time to listen and judge the similarities in this songs and the beauty of both women, with different backgrounds, decades, and musical training that captivate any audience. Julia will leave her own space in history. 

         We also know some of the best voices of our time, are barely heard and sadly will not reach that well deserved pinnacle of success. Hip Hip would not be anything, without samples, musical exploration and a vast appreciation to open your mind, and step away from the mundane. Create your own sound, and make your name and voice that next generations will appreciate. Billie Holiday died in 1959 and we still appreciate the gift and curse that she left behind.

You know when you hear Julia’s voice, that this will be the last song you will sing,or is it? What happened?

Never  have I heard a voice so transforming, as this Domino Recording Artist.

Is she telling you good-bye, for good?

What is you trying to escape?

Julia Holter appears to be  possessed with the spirits of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter

Listen for yourself! 

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

 The Black hair and ruby-red lipstick inspired by Pin Up Girl and “Model”  Betty Page are inspiring and her spirit and unwillingness to conform brings forth controversy but also curiosity.

We may not agree with some of her video shoots and pictures of these ladies, but admit it  these women are  breathtaking and alluring,and of course,  fashion icon when it comes to inspiration that brings forth power,from the classic but powerful ruby lips.Beauty and confidence flourishes forever and every generation respectively imitates the Golden Era fashion Icons.

Each generation of women that pay homage to the timeless and  powerful  look or the crimson lip captivates the eyes because of the luminous skin, dark eyebrows and power and confidence, are the finishing touches. 

Here are six of my favorite shades of  lipsticks that will work with every complexion, and a few are inexpensive and will accentuate your natural flawless skin and your inner power and “Roar!”


 

Marvin Gaye “What’s Going On?” ***messymandella***

Marvin Gaye, talented and loving still could not keep his talent apart  for his inner demons.

 Most artist with vast degree of artistic ability and  inventiveness soon will become “recreational drug users.”

 However, they  ultimately become addicted  to some substance, or toxic that will deplete their talent and finances.

Some even admit, they have a drug weaknesses in their music.
Nothing wrong with that, but addiction is always closely begging you to “Ride With Death.”

The lure, money and class of women will change and cloud your judgement.  

Marvin Gaye, of course murdered by father, lost his ability to function because of recreational drugs.

Marvin finally crossed that line. 

Numerous addicts have told me,”Once you have crossed that line, you are gone forever.You will spend forever trying to get back to that first time high.”

Marvin’s talent and pleas for an end of violence are still appreciated and I this is just how I feel about the endless violence. 

Study the mathematics, and how we evolve 360 degrees.

History WILL ALWAYS repeat itself, but what can WE do differently?  

We have to end the violence, I am pleading now if not for us, at least for our babies.

Sadly, Marvin Gay felt the same way I feel right now. He felt that way over 30 years ago…
