So what did you all think about BET's first Hip-Hop Music Awards? I am very interested in your thoughts and opinions. I have already spoken on how I felt about the show. Watching it last night didn't make me feel any different. But there's one thing I just can't ignore. What was up with Katt Williams opening monologue addressing Jay-Z and BeyoncÃ© as "King and Queen" and Nas and Keilis and "Prince and Princes" what kind of bullshit is that?
And now that I think about it â€" where the hell was Nas?? I knew somebody major was missing but I couldn't put my finger on it!!!
I watched BET's 'Access Granted" the other night as they selected Monica's new song "A Dozen Roses" to feature. Why in the hell they would choose her is beyond me, but they did, so whatever. Can somebody please hand Monica a sandwich? Since when has bony-skinny ever been sexy? Monica had the opportunity to be the new "Whitney Houston" but she dropped the ball by refusing to compromise her ghetto ass tendencies.
Before any of y'all post a comment demanding my resignation â€" you know DAMN well ghettoness in Middle America AKA â€" "white people" just won't fly if you want to be a successful pop singing sensation and don't kid yourself, she wanted that. Anybody in there right mind would.. I'm not saying it's fair but it's the truth.
She chose to go for those manish tattoos, and hood songs over making millions of dollars.
"Boy you remind me, remind me of by Gucci Shoes
Every time you walk pass all the girls be looking at you
You got style just like a Bentley do
And I be loosing my mind evertime I get next to you"
I understand how important it is to be true to yourself and all that but let's keep it real â€" Whitney Houston was hood as hell, but she understood the nature of the beast/business and made it work.
Sometimes you just have to see the bigger damn picture. You can't tell me that when Monica is sitting on her toilet, doing the #2, deep in thought, that she doesn't regret not making better career decisions.
Check out Monica's new video, "A Dozen Roses."
