I'm a keep-to-myself kinda gal. I'd much rather observe than participate. So as I sit back and wait on this "Campus Love Jones" thing to start I ponder...what is popularity? Is it being the best dressed? Most talented? Best looking? And by who's standard is it based upon? My blackberry won't permit me to go any further, so I'll finish this when I get to a computer......the show is starting anyway.

Hip-Hop's GaGa...?

People have a lot of shit to say about Nicki Minaj, but I LOVE her. Now Im not one of those crazed fans that walks around calling themselves "Barbie", but the chick can really rap and she's original. I promise she's gonna be the hip-hop version of Lady Gaga. She's slowly but surely getting more wild with her costumes and facial expression. Check her out in the new video for "My Chick Bad" with Ludacris

P.S. (EVE is in the video as well, but if you blink you might miss her. Where has she been?! )

She smiles
& they smile right back.
Never knowing her inner turmoil.
Never knowing she cries every night.

Womanly Advice.

This is the word we use at the end of any argument in which we feel we are right, but need to shut you up. NEVER use ‘Fine’ to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.

This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so I feel that it’s an even trade.

This means something and you should be on your toes. “Nothing” is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. “Nothing” usually signifies an argument that will last “Five Minutes” and end with the word “Fine”.

GO AHEAD (with raised eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over “Nothing” and will end with the word “Fine”.

GO AHEAD (normal eyebrows)
This means “I give up” or “do what you want because I don’t care”. You will get a raised eyebrow “Go Ahead” in just a few minutes, followed by “Nothing” and “Fine” and she will talk to you in about “Five Minutes” when she cools off.

This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement very misunderstood by men. A “Loud Sigh” means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over “Nothing”.

Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. “Soft Sighs” are one of the few things that some men actually understand. She is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe and she will stay content.

This word followed by any statement is trouble.
Example; “Oh, let me get that”. Or, “Oh, I talked to him about what you were doing last night”. If she says “Oh” before a statement, run, do not walk, to the nearest exit. She will tell you that she is “Fine” when she is done tossing your clothes out the window, but do not expect her to talk to you for at least 2 days. “Oh” as the lead-in to a sentence usually signifies that you are caught in a lie. Do not try to lie more to get out of it, or you will get raised eyebrows and a “Go ahead,” followed by acts so unspeakable that I can’t bring myself to write about them.

This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a man. “That’s Okay” means that she wants to think long and hard before visiting on you major retribution and tribulations for what ever it is that you have done. “That’s Okay” is often used with the word “Fine” and used in conjunction with a raised eyebrow “Go Ahead”. At some point in the near future when she has plotted and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.

This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance to tell the truth, so be careful and you shouldn’t get a “That’s Okay”.

A woman is thanking you. Do not faint, just say you’re welcome.

This is much different than “Thanks”. A woman will say, “Thanks A Lot” when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way, and will be followed by the “Loud Sigh”. Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the “Loud Sigh”, as she will only tell you “Nothing”.

Not the Griffeys...!

Its 2:41am, Im browsing one of my favorite sneaker blogs (http://femalesneakerfiends.blogspot.com/) and what do I see?

These wonderful pair of Griffey's staring at me!
Normally Im not a big fan of Griffey's but these take the cake. They are a must have for my closet. They're supposed to be released on the 20th and you better believe I'm calling my favorite sneaker store to see if they will have them in stock.

Race and Entertainment.

SMH. Where do I begin? John Mayer, MY John Mayer, the John Mayer who sings me to sleep every night made some very disturbing comments about his penis, black people, and his ex Jessica Simpson. Most people who read the interview (link at the bottom) was so fixated on him using the N-word that they completely disregarded the other ignorant shit he said. I wasn't so much upset at his usage of the N-word because lets be honest, had that been Kanye, Jay-Z, or Lil Wayne that said it, it wouldnt have been an issue. Do I think its an acceptable word for him to use? No, but thats at the bottom of his stupid pile.

Question: "Do black women throw themselves at you?"

Answer: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.

MY problem with his interview is the David Duke comment and the fact that he refers to his penis as a "white supremacist". Like WTH. Really though? So basically what you're saying is forget the fact that I have millions of BLACK FEMALE fans that LOVE and BUY my music, I still wouldnt be with them. Some shit is better left unsaid. Even if thats how he felt/feels we couldve went without that information.

I also find it strange how easily people forgave him. It was like as soon as he released a statement/apology via Twitter, people instantly gave him a pass. Now lets rewind to about 5 months ago... remember the whole Kanye West and Taylor Swift fiasco? I do. Kanye West has apologized plenty of times, but to no avail. People refuse to let it go. Simply put, he's been "blackballed". He hasn't been invited to any award shows this season nor has he been nominated. I find this to be bullshit. Kanye West's 808's and Heartbreaks album was one of the best rap albums out last year and for the Grammy's to snub him for something that happened 5 months ago is ridiculous. The media slayed Kanye West, but John Mayer's comments went relatively unnoticed.

So this all has me thinking about how race and entertainment coincide. Alot of people have forgiven John Mayer saying that thats just how he is. He's a natural born asshole so that what they expect. Well, so is Kanye. We all know that Kanye is extremely outspoken with ass-hole tendencies so why forgive one and not the other. Is it because one is black and the other is white?

Lil Wayne has made it to the trending topics on Twitter.
All of his Young Money counterparts have been furiously tweeting "#freeweezy" and I have only one question...
How can you free someone that's already free?
Lil Wayne was supposed to go prison today to start his one year sentence, BUT his sentencing was postponed. Why, you ask? A dentist appointment! Yep, that's right.
Turns out Wayne's grill is going under the knife on February 12 so the judge won't throw him in jail until the surgery is complete.
His sentence is postponed until March 2nd and according to the judge there will be no fooling around, he will go to prison.

Loose Juice.

There's this party that thrown every year called the Loose Juice party.
Loose Juice is basically any flavor Hawaiian Punch and some form of liquor...
Of course its a college party so it gets you "loose" pretty fast.
