Lil Kim, What’s Wrong With Being Black? ***messymandella***self – hate turns into an obsession

You blind or something?

Oh, Dear Jesus!

My Lamb!

What in the Lambchop Hell am I looking at?Cg2MJ-lUUAIfJsU

No more pretending  that ths is not your new plastic surgery that has turned you into Imelda Marcos! If You want to look like Margaret Cho, and Kim Jung Ill , that is your business! You can wallow  in Pancake Ivory Make-Up to your last days.

Lil Kim, WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT YOU SINCE 1996.

We know what you looked like almost a decade ago.

They have this thing called pictures, you see?

If you don’t stop turning into a Thunder Cat or the lead kitten in the Meow Mix Commercial…

This is a travesty. I wrote those horrible comments above because I thought it was funny how bad she looked. It is however far from comical, just disturbing and embarrassing. 

LilKimBeforeAfter Everyone knows I Love Lil Kim!

It’s a contradiction of my personality.I love Empowering Women, but also love someone who talks about making money,drugs and selling her ass. I don’t think that the beautiful women of Rap are personified outside of their entourage unless they sell their sexuality.

I don’t know why she became a different shade and abandoned the beautiful little woman she was in 1996?We can speculate on how and why she bleached her skin, and chose to turn into a more lighter, Asian version of herself. I have a theory, the love of her life was the late Biggie Smalls, who was a well-known player. Biggie had 2 well-known side chicks, Charlie Baltimore and Faith Evans,Faith became his wife. They are both Biracial and Fair Skinned. That may have been the catalyst that changed Lil Kim into this other person. Maybe she felt, “Why not me?”I am not complaining about being more ethnic.I have weave and change the color of my hair every other week. I express myself through fashion, hair and music.

Lil Kim did not start making herself  lighter until Faith Evans became Big’s Wife. Why did Lil Kim think she needed to be lighter? Is it a statement that lighter is better in the African-American community? If this is the idea that little girls are given, we need to do better and live better.

I can’t think of anyway we can get pass colorism and self-love if we keep abandon the melanin in our skin, to be another standard of beauty. Who’s standard? Women are beautiful in every race and color. No certain complexion or hue is superior. She also needs better friends. There is no way your TRUE friends would let you roll with them looking so unnatural.

It is wrong to bully or criticize someone because of how they look, jealousy, or factors they can’t control. Kim and other women and men can control this disgusting bleaching trend. You were once a woman of black descent before you pulled a Sammy Sosa!

 

I will ALWAYS be a Lil Kim fan, but I wish she was a fan of herself!

This transition is insanely drastic!

Don’t Let Your Life Pass You By! ***messymandella***Tyler Stenson-MAXwell


 
      So, are you afraid to fail?

I have been in a situation where the richest person I knew personally wanted to remind me every day I was not part of the team.

 I refused to let someone who would rather brag and throw money in the trash and watch me struggle dictate my future.

Should I have been stressed?

Hell yes I was, stressed!

Remember, Scrooge didn’t win, and in the end neither will that person.

Life is about compromise and love. When you go above an beyond to snitch or risk someone’s future just for brownie points, in the end you will lose.

I have never been the one to smile in the face of the person who wants to see the worst in me. However, I can honestly say with  the humbleness ,“I MADE IT THROUGH.”

        Now when someone wants to witness your failure  materialistically, they are saddened at who they have become. When someone jeopardizes your life and career,  like a hall monitor,they are not getting enough love at home.

That gives them more time to  purposely put you down, that is because they dwell in  sadness and hate their pathetic life, not yours…

Life can be full of regret and grudges that harbor resentment towards others.

  Do not allow people to lessen your quality of life.

Keep  pushing towards your dreams.

The same situations that brought forth tears and shame also are  the catalysts that either made you a negative or positive person. 

Which one are you?

Now when you  interact with the so call friends that betrayed you, don’t be fake.

They don’t deserve your time or consideration, but if it is someone who you live with, work with, or even in your family, let them drown in their own deception.

If I wasn’t treated like shit, by someone I once respected, it would have never met you, my family and readers all over the world.

That pain and deception inspired me, and I hope it inspires you.

I will never let bitter broads ever stand in the way of my dreams.

I believe in Sista Hood  for all.

However, if anyone would damage your life, income, or your well-being, are they capable of Sista Hood?

Share your life with other women that don’t question you and desires and are for you,not against you. They pray that you will give up on your dreams, and be just like them, bitter. 

If you have to wonder if you walk out the room will they trash you, stay. the. hell. out. of. that. room.

They are salty because they were not brave as you.

They envy you for following your dreams, while they let their lives past them by…

 

 

UPDATE: Is Bobbi Kristina Out Of Danger? Dr. Drew reacts to Backlash Over Diagnosis! ***messymandella***


 
Bobbi Kristina Brown, you are still in our prayers, up high. This article of course not any means a smear campaign against Nick Gordon, but he spoke of Bobbi Kristina as she was already dead.
 
“I miss them both, and I lost them both!”
 
What in this world happen to that baby on that day and who and what could even cause her to be in this situation? This boy feels guilt, but he doesn’t appear to have attempted to murder her. He appears to be guilty that he couldn’t revive her that day. Nick blames himself, and now the family rallying for her survival should never be sidetracked by Nick’s antics, but something is missing. Why does he feel so guilty, and threatening himself?
 
Brain dead, physical death and whatever terminology  is being used to describe Bobbi are not technically important at this moment.

What is important is how and when the families coming together, burying the hatchet and setting aside their  own differences to make things right for Bobbi in the near future.
 
     I am sure Whitney is sending her daughter love  and is torn between wanting her there with her, or letting her stay here with us a little longer, to carry out her dreams.

When you take the time to look inside  yourself use Whitney as your example.

        Whitney taught me never to have anyone in your life that will publicly destroy or diminish your brand or cause scandal.
 
        I wish and pray  Bobbi Kristina will finally have her story told through her eyes, without the tabloid scandal.She deserves people in her life, that have her best intrest,and not only want her inheritance.

 
Whitney Houston lived a life that humbled most, and destroyed her in the end. Her daughter couldn’t seem to find her place in this world. Now she won’t have to, the families ALLEGEDLY will let Bobbi Kristina Brown pass away. Now,it is a what if situation,but we are too hurt inside. This little girl had two troubled parents with addictions, but they loved her so much. No one could ever dispute the admiration of their little girl, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

 
     Today is her last physical day,according to reports from the family spokesperson. I felt in my heart she left us before this week. She wanted to be with her mom. Now she will be removed from the breathing machine on the anniversary of her mother’s death.
 
We must tell the truth about Whitney Houston. I cried, because I was in her situation,not drugs but with someone who would play the part of a different person to the public.

 

 

When she lost part of her heavenly voice, and her self-respect through addiction, we were confused and disappointed and with Bobbi, we refuse to accept her fate.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Analyzing Robert Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) : Is Your Soul For Sell? ***messymandella***

Excerpt From Stephen Davis “Hammer of the Gods.”

“In the delta of the Mississippi River, where Robert Johnson was born, they said that if an aspiring bluesmen waited by the side of a deserted crossroads in the dark of a moonless night, then the Devil himself might come and tune his guitar, sealing a pact for the bluesmen’s soul and guaranteeing a lifetime of easy money, women, and fame. They said that Robert Johnson must have waited by the crossroads and gotten his guitar fine-tuned.

Robert Johnson was a Mississippi blues singer and songwriter, who according to legend, sold his soul to Satan “at the crossroads” in exchange for his remarkable talent on the guitar.


 
Born and raised in Mississippi, Robert Johnson started playing blues guitar in the late 1920s. His wife and child died in childbirth around 1930 and he is said to have devoted himself to the guitar. Part of the crossroads story comes from a report that he dropped out of sight for a while in the early 1930s and returned a much-improved guitarist.

In 1936-37 he recorded at least 29 songs in Texas (San Antonio and Dallas), then returned to Mississippi to play and sing in clubs and bars. His mysterious death at the age of 27 added to the legend: He died in 1938, falling ill after playing a party and dying four days later.

At the stroke of midnight, he walked down to the windswept crossroads at the junction of Highways 61 and 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Reciting an ancient incantation, he called upon the Devil to make his deal. In exchange for Johnson’s immortal soul, the devil tuned his guitar, thereby giving him the abilities which he so desired. From then on, the young bluesman played his instrument with an unearthly style, his fingers dancing over the strings. His voice moaned and wailed, expressing the deepest sorrows of a condemned sinner.

Whatever the reason, Johnson died at the young age of twenty-seven (The 27 Club with members Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin)  Down in the Delta Blues music that has influenced guitar players like Muddy Waters, and his songs have been covered by several rock stars, including Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones.
 In 1986 Robert Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs include “Crossroad Blues,” “Me and the Devil Blues” and “Terraplane Blues.”

Because of the historical significance of “Cross Road Blues,” it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Robert Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938)

Historians and musicians all over the world are still are intrigued

 

by the legend of Robert’s deal with the devil came due and as evidence gave the fact that they had seen him on all fours, howling at the moon the night he died……

 

Undisputed facts about Johnson’s life are few and far between. More often than not, his legend has obscured the few grains of truth that can be discerned. According to the myth, the young bluesman desperately longed for fame and fortune. “

 

What is encrypted in the power of fame?

 

Do musicians and other artist go against everything they we are taught to reach that pinnacle of success?

 

We are closer to the spiritual world, and we are closer than we can ever could imagine.

 

Would you risk your intuition and mystical inner strength to reach that Millionaire status, given a chose?

 

Did Robert Johnson make a pact with the Devil?

 

Historians claimed that Robert could not play but a few chords if any, on the guitar until he came back from the Cross Roads.

The eerie tale is of course, that when he came back to play he played better than anyone else, that saw him playing a week before, and could not understand why? Robert ONLY played with his back turned away from his audience….

 

Here is the footage, and now you know the legend!

Was this story a myth, or a true deal with the devil? Would you make that deal to gain riches and fame?
