Metric With The Beautiful Emily Haines***messymandella***

Emily Haines,  from the Canadian band Metric has always impressed the masses with her confidence, beauty and self-expression.

She is attractive, confident, and beyond talented.

Metric has a cult following, that has reached even me in South Carolina.

Yes, Metric is a functioning group, with other members besides Emily, but she garners the most attention.

Jetta – Feels Like Coming Home (Live)***messsymandella***

 

Under the moon, you go to sleep with them in your heart.

I believe soldiers at war fight harder knowing that they have so much love waiting at home. Even if they can’t touch it or kiss that loved one, they will work harder and stronger to protect that little lady that loves them more than they could ever imagine.

Something feels so familiar that you can’t explain, and their friends will even try to intercept or talk them out of that feeling. You know that you woke up happier than them. You woke up loved, and you know that person means more to you than you can explain.

No one will understand how you feel, or why? You and that person, just know! It feels like home! Your friends and associates will not understand that someone can touch you so much in your spirit and mean more to you than you ever dreamed was even possible. You feel amazed, but blessed that you experienced this in your life.

Don’t be naïve, it does not take a day! Sometimes it can take months or years, but you know “home.”

If anyone around you could even imagine that feeling, they wouldn’t have to front, or pretend to be happy without love.

Once you have that complete love of understanding of who that person is, and what they do, that is love. No matter what happens in this life, nothing can ever be written more beautiful than what your heart is feeling now!

You found your home!

Once

upon

a

time,

women rapped and kept their under garments on and just spit their lyrics.

Only a few pictures of men could get glimpse of a bathing suit  a bra top or  a wardrobe  malfunction but that was it, it would go no further. Lets be clear, I also adore most female rappers in this industry but these are half-naked most of the time because is it so common place these days.

When you are an avid activist of women In the arts, such as myself, you understand  Lil Kim and Mrs. Minaj and message of female expression and empowerment, even if you don’t care for the perception and the molding of the young female minds. They are both beautiful women with a message to women, but not little girls!

However unfortunate  but obvious is that  women have abandoned the life lessons of solidarity and we are culture “Miseducated” but that money will overshadow the power to our people and education of our youth  will make millions these days.

 

The revised rap blue print for women   is  a paradox to the Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill and her foreshadowing on the slut like activity of women that we celebrate and even honor at the Grammys.

Lauryn was cut from a different cloth and opened our ears to self-pride and self- preservation.

Apparently the Hip Hop Nation will not be able to envision another genius who also carried herself like a queen, and not a “Trap Queen.”

 

Back then, a person would not be half-naked every day unless she was a day time hooker.

While we as women and men  should be someway protesting, and demanding fair treatment by men, we are subconsciously every stereotype to “keep” a man.

        Thanks to Snap Chat, Twitter, and  Instigram we are so disillusioned of  what is substantive or superficial?

      No pictures of Queen Latifah‘s big draws or MC Lyte‘s   panties would have been posted all over social media.

We relentlessly speak of Women Empowerment, but that is not what the younger listeners are going to identify with and embrace.

        The message of mental strength is lost with butt shots, mindless sex and  money over anything genuine in this life. We have to nourish our families physically and psychologically

       We don’t comprehended how lost and fake we are in this world and Kendrick Lamar is kicking off that knowledge.

Lauryn Hill foreshadowed our mental and spiritual weakening  and the truth was too scary for her so she escaped her public existence and moved out of the industry.

      Mrs. Hill is the woman who could have been on the level of Nina Simone,but she escaped her surroundings and lost her musical vision in this ever-changing hasty culture.

 

It is challenging to stand up for your self-respect and principles when you are trying to protect your people, usually the backlash comes from  your message from the very people you are trying to empower.
