What a Week!
There's been a lot in the media this week. So much is going on that it's hard not to comment. My mother always said that if you can't say something positive, don't say anything. So let me see if I can say something positive about some of these negative events.
Michael Vicks, Atlanta Falcons' quarterback is being accused of being a heavy weight in the sport of dogfighting according to an ESPN report. I could not imagine someone allowing another dog to beat my sweetheart Ebony.
If a man can stand to see a dog suffer what would he do with his woman? I want to believe that this story is untrue. Hopefully Vick was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is all a misunderstanding.
Brittany Spears is losing her mind. Someone needs to step in to save this girl. Hopefully people who want their children to be entertainers will use Brittany, Lindsey, and all the other brat pack to teach their potential starlets not to take their blessings for jest. Hopefully parents who push their children in this arena will work hard to help their children feel normal, by putting them in normal situations like schools, churches, etc. to keep their feet on the ground. It's easy to lose your head when everyone caters to you because they want something from you. Parents have to help keep children grounded before they reach that teen age and think that they can do what ever they want without penalties. These young women need help and folks needs to step back and leave them alone. Remove the cameras and let them get their lives in order.
Other things happening includes professional referee gambling and doing illegal things to make money off games. Did this include making unfair calls against players and their teams? Rappers shooting and trying to kill folks, and breaking all kinds of laws. Money is truly the root of all evil. It's time to stop lining their pockets and purchasing their music. They need to understand that easy come, easy go applies to those who choose to live by their on laws. But we don't need to help finance them.
I found these on a website of one of our radio station. When I was young I loved me some Michael Jackson. I thought he was a cutie. But the artist who interpreted these pictures of how he would age is wrong. You can look at his fine brother Marlon to see how Michael would look without the plastic surgery.
Now Tara Banks is one of my favorite people because she keeps it real. She told all the models and starlets trade secrets about picture touch ups and other stuff that made these women more normal. No need of me stressing out that I don't have a perfect body when the faces that grace the magazines have received touch ups. So when I saw this photo of Serena I thought wow, she looks great. But then someone sent this shot of her on the beach with her boyfriend. Now I see what they mean about touch ups. But still this young lady is a class act. She's here in St. Louis this week, injured but still working with our youths teaching them the sport.
