wow. was not expecting such an intense/VIOLENT video. it is easy to see why M.I.A would release such a video, since she grew up in the midst of the Sri Lankan civil war.
this video got to me a bit. i would be surprised if you DIDN'T get some sort of emotion evoked by watching this video.
the ginger boys in this video can remind us all of how violence is so easily triggered over a single characteristic, whether it be red hair, skin color, nationality, or religion. violence to this degree is happening all the time, every day.
Anybody can become angry, that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not within everybody's power, that is not easy.
female rappers are very hit or miss. there hasn't been a chick like nicki minaj in the game in a WHILE. she has charm, but balls at the same time hah.
although nicki minaj has different "accents" from a valley girl to a british girl..she is straight from queens. she has been making cameos on errrrybody's songs, and just released her first single with her debut album due in the summer.
do i need to say much more about her? if you don't know who nicki minaj is...you shouldn't be reading my blog!
if you wanna fiend on ms minaj like i do, i suggest to listen to the following songs (links provided)
summer is amazing. i feel like a kid again in the summer, always wanting to be outside and possessing endless amounts of energy. all i need in the summer is some sun and i'll be content, but these are the things that make my summer that much better.
1. self tanner yeah i admit it, i used to follow a tanning bed routine like it was my job. nothing feels better than the warmth of the artificial sun on skin on a winter afternoon, and coming home with a nice tan. but after hearing about fellow 20-somethings getting skin cancer, and new reports stating that indoor tanning increases the risk of melanoma by 75%!!! percent, i officially quit the tanning beds. i'm not gonna lie, i still tan outside but i use SPF and rely on self tanner a lot more than I ever used to. these are my favorite (they are snookieorange free) 1. Victoria's Secret Daily Glow Gradual Tan Moisturizer SPF 15 2. St. Tropez Self Tanning Bronzing Mousse 3. SUN Laboratories Dark Sunsation Self Tan Lotion
2. new music if i could choose a soundtrack for the summer of 2008, it would just be The Carter III. i loove when new albums drop in the summer. thankfully, there are albums to look forward to. and don't quote me on these albums ACTUALLY dropping in the summer, cause you know how record labels do, always pushing back dates. ugh.
-Drake "Thank Me Later" (which has already been pushed back a number of times) -B.o.B "B.o.B Presents: The Adventures Of Bobby Ray" -Kanye West "Good Ass Job" (which seems strange to be dropping this summer, since there is no single, no promo, no anything as of yet) -M.I.A. "untitled as of now???" -The Roots "How I Got Over" -The-Dream "Love King"
I will post more summer necessities in the future. Look out music fesitivals anndd frozen yogurt :P
after taking a too long hiatus from my blog, i'm going innn. when i really love something whether it be a mixtape or a mascara, i wanna tell rave to anybody who will listen. soo this time around the blog is not gonna be all about music (although a lot of it will be).
if i travel somewhere new, you'll hear it. if i have some yummy new food, you'll hear it. if i wanna share an inspiring quote, you'll hear it.
i'm ADDICTED to you. im in freakin love with you. i think about you all the time, and i get anxious when i don't hear from you. i like when you're around ALL the time, when i'm showering, in the car, even when i'm with my friends. even though sometimes you make me sadder than i already am, you can make me happy as hell. i love starting my day with you, and i love ending it with you. i can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you........................
