As most already know, ‘Why O’ Why’ doesn’t weigh in on celebrity crap regularly. I think we’ve only put our two cents in on the more ridiculous stories, for example; Morgan Freeman and his great grand daughter becoming a couple — UGH!! In that world, I find our societal obsession with celebs to be sad and pathetic. I mean– there are far more important things to focus on, isn’t there? And the amount of blogs out there who have carved a name for themselves by bashing, trash talking, spreading rumors and innuendo is staggering. Sadly, these blogs are overlooking one other thing they are doing. They are creating more and more environments that reinforce to our youths’ young (very young) minds, that superficial things and talking harshly about people are what’s imp0rtant. Who cares if Britney Spears got a mohawk?! But if you don’t like her new coif you can say all sorts of horrible things about her on any given blog, right?! That Perez person’s success is disturbing to me. But I digress…
Every now and then a ‘hollyweird’ person (athlete or musical artist, etc.) will have something significant to say, but sadly… even that’s ‘shot down’ because these blogging environments are ripe for venomous attacks towards people. To me, these ‘celeb blogs’ are nothing more than a bunch of kids on a playground who tease and taunt and are seeking revenge for how they were tormented as children. And… shame on the readers for entertaining them at all. Seems to me, most have not matured or evolved much over the course of their years. These blogs have managed to twist the cognitive senses in our minds because even when someone is making sense that person is still attacked… in this case, Chili from the group “TLC”…
I saw a promo on TV that she has a ‘reality’ show . In case some didn’t know this, I (personally) can’t STAND reality shows. I have no plans to watch her show either. But a friend of mine emailed her interview on the radio to me and I gave it a listen. He and I always have our healthy “man vs. woman” debates and he was trying to make the point that women are too picky these days. The interview is already in progress but it started by saying; Chili ‘wants to ban the N-word’. Uhm… what’s wrong with that?! Am I missing something? Shame on you Chili! (sarcasm implied). Here’s some other things she wanted to ban:
No kissing on a first date
No anal sex
Skinny jeans on men
She also wants women to ‘raise the bar’ with our behavior (recognizing that women certainly set the tone for the way men treat us).
What’s interesting about these rather insightful comments [by Chili], is that the DJ didn’t reinforce her statements. There’s a moment of silence (too long for radio) and this DJ goes directly to fashion (which brought up the skinny jeans topic).
Is Chili insane? Is she on crack? Is she trippin’? “She’s looking for Jesus”. I’m being nice/delicate, but these are the types of responses I saw on the link in the email from this particular site that had more than 200 comments. People were really going ‘hard’ with their comments towards Chili (for having standards, BTW). I’m reading what folks are saying and those harsh reactions by her ‘audience/readers’ didn’t resonate with me.
I don’t kiss on a first date either, anal sex is nothing I’m curious about (plus I can’t get out of my mind that THIS is the area we all sh*t from, YUCK)! Skinny, sagging jeans only tells me one thing about the guy wearing them– they are not [grown azz] men! So is this the new definition of women being too picky now?! Cuz, damn!!
Seems to me, our young people today are terribly confused by the two words; “standards” vs. “picky”. Seems they’ve taken us back to a time when it’s okay to view women as sexual objects. To quote some comments on this particular blog; “that’s why she’s 40 and single”, “she’s too damn picky “and “she’ll never keep a man with the same boring sex”! Wow! JUST FREAKIN’ WOWWW!!!
Riddle me this [Batman]: What’s so bad about not wanting to kiss some guy you just met on a first date? And who said sex has to be ‘boring’ because you’re not getting fukd in the azz? Wow, “ladies” (using that term loosely)– we are ‘officially’, LOST! Men can now say ‘check mate’ because the ‘battle of the sexes’ is officially over! ‘Women’ (using that term loosely again) nowadays seem to be just fine with being sex objects who’s only place is to please their mans’ every sexual whim. I never thought the year 2010 would bring the reversal of Women’s Lib in any shape, form, or fashion. I’m still young (comparatively) in this game of life, but damn– I MUST be getting old when not kissing on a first date is viewed as “too picky’! SMMFH (that’s new and stands for;’ shakin’ my mutha fvckin head’– a brand new acronym for the “blog-speak“…) Damn shame, I tell ya’……..
You can listen to Chili’s radio interview here , the second link on that site (if you haven’t already heard it). Speak on this one fellow people… let me know if me and Chili (Rozonda) are prudish…
Hey– for shits and giggles (if you will)… remember this jam that she recorded?: … it wasn’t all about the superficial things…
