Can you guess which celebrity hip hop star made this captivatin' comment?
Was it "Mr.Milli" himself?
Could it have been...Houston's own Lil' Flip?
If you picked him... sorry, game over.
Give up? It was none other than.... (drum roll)
Snoop (Mr. Great Dane himself)
I'm sure you're probably curious as to what even made him make this statement. Well, he was actually making this quote in reference to his beautiful, ebony-rich daughter, Cori. I think that it's heart warming that he tried to affirm that his lil'' girl is precious regardless of her complexion. But would someone such as Halle's lil' heartbreaker
be considered more pleasing to the eye because of her lighter tint? Confession #86. I have sometimes been guilty of this crime myself (holdin' my head down). However,my color struck condition played a factor in the dating scene. When it came down to gettin' to know a dude, I would NOT spend my precious time with anyone that wasn't the color of Kingford's charcoal. Gentlemen that were of the lighter persuasion were of no interest. I mean, I wouldn't even give these guys a chance.
I had often been questioned by my compadres in crime as to what my logic was behind this way of thinking. Honestly, I really couldn't give them a straight answer. Well, I could, but...I felt like my answer might in fact be controversial. You see, I just felt like dark skinned don's were just more striking. More..mysterious if you will. The brighter skinned gentlemen that I often came in contact with came off as exceedingly arrogant, loudmouthed buffoons.
In my era, it was always "light is right" or "light, bright and close to white." Personally though, I preferred my berry to be blacker so that the juice would be sweeter. Why? Was that because I was rebellin' against society's definition of what 'true beauty 'was or was it just a personal choice? Hmm. Perhaps a smidgen of both. As I matured into this journey that we call womanhood, I realized something. Beauty is indeed colorblind. Do you find men and women of a lighter tone more attractive than say their darker counterparts? When at the mall or some other social function,do you often find yourself cooin' at the lighter skinned baby as oppossed to one of a darker color? The floor is open ladies and gents..
Step on up to that mike and tell me how you feel...
For your viewin' pleasure I have compiled my own personal Celebrities of Color collage.Enjoy...
In the "Lusciously Lighter" category we have...
Next, we have darkly delicious...
Boredom was my first, middle and last name on this particular Saturday. To break the montony of my yawn fest, I decided to check my messeages on Spacehate. I'm sorry. MySpace. Anyhooters, there was a note from a long, lost shall we say...acquaintance. I was kinda curious as to what he could possibly want because we had a pluck your eyeballs out- knock down-drag out fight last time we spoke.
His message was casual. Yet he left his new # and asked me to call if I felt like it. Hmm. I waited about 2 days. What can I say? I just HAD to know what he wanted. I sent him a text just to feel out the situation. He replied back and we played textual tag for a minute. He then asked if I could call him so we could talk. I agreed. Just to break the ice more, I decided to ask him him some questions that would help me get a better feel as to what type of man I was dealin' with.
I gave him this scenario. What would you do if your best friend's girl tried to come on to you? How would you handle that? Would you tell him? Now, I gotta admit. I'm a pretty jaded individual. Based on my personal life events, nothing too much that happens nowadays surprises me. Yet his response left me bankrupt for words. Here's what he said. "If she was hot I would sleep with her and then tell my boy she wasn't sh*t."
Huh?? Was this dude for real? Is the word loyalty not listed as an entry in his personal dictionary of life? I asked him how he could betray his BEST FRIEND like that. His response was that guys basically stab each other in the back all the time. Get them before they get you was his convoluted logic. I was utterly disgusted. I think he knew I was because he replied by saying "hey, I'm just keepin' it real." I guess this is the part where he was expectin' some props or perhaps a standin' ovation.
Fortunately, the catastrophic call came to a screechin' halt not too long after his riveting revelation. Should he have been celebrated for the fact that he didn't hold back? Is there such a thing as bein' TOO real?
Can't say that I was exactly flattered to receive this type of correspondence. Of course this email was quickly sent to my heapin' trash pile, internet style. Eventually though,curiousity just about strangled this cat so I had no choice but to investigate this matter just a lil' further.
Once I got to the website, it asks a series of about 15 short and to the point questions. It asked for physical descriptions from my height right down to my eye color. Next,I uploaded my profile pic. Once I made verification through my email, I was all set for my new booty quest!! The site is definitely user friendly. That's a plus, right? I noticed on the home page that it is divided up into 3 unique sections.
The first category is:
This is where it says how many folks are feenin' for the booty. YOUR booty. You can also retrieve any messages someone may have left. Lastly, you can get a peep as to who's been checkin' you out with profile views. Sound interesting yet?
Okay. Next, there is the:
or what the website calls the "Random Booty" section. Are you in the mood for a lil' danger and intrigue? If so, here is the section where the computer picks someone for you based on your zip code. I guess you could say that its kinda like virtual Russian roulette. Feelin' that soft and sexy tingle yet?
You guessed it.The Quick Search section. This is where you plug your zip code into the computer. Next, you tell the computer how many miles you want it to search out. The range is anywhere from 5-1,000 miles out!! Damn. You could jump in your ride and really go the distance for some skin slappin, bed bangin' booty action.
I bet you're all ready, set and excited to roll, huh? Wellll..pump your brakes for a sec. As with most things in life, this site has stipulations. Bottom line: you got to pay to play. Here's how it works. There are 2 different membership levels:
- Bronze-basic, bare bones. If you should happen to see someone who is lookin' kinda tasty, too bad. You can't send them a message unless this individual sends YOU one FIRST. The most that you could accomplish is to add them to your "booty" list. Consequently if you want to get noticed, then make sure your profile pic is lookin' right, know what I'm sayin?
- Gold-"Membership has its' privileges". At this level is where you're gonna start diggin in your pockets or pocketbook. Payments can be made on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis. The trick is to pay for more time upfront so that you will receive a discount over the long haul. At this level, you can send messages, intiate IM'ing, and a host of other things.
Tiffany's Tidbits of Truth: By no means am I condoning OR condemning this website. You are capable and consenting adults. If you decide to give it a try, have fun but PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!
Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone or affectionately known as...Madonna. I always enjoyed her music. It was edgy served up with a side of sacrilege. Her melodious songs crossed boundaries both color-wise and morally.
I remember when she hit the stage in this get up and mouths dropped:
Her costume catastrophe might seem pretty tame based on today's rather loose standards. Yet back in the era of the 80's it was definitely racy. Her hips were on constant gyrate mode while she twisted and twirled the pointy edges of her torpedoed ta-ta's.
As time pressed foward, so did her boldness. She continued to push the envelope even further with her Erotica cd and her all about Sex book.
People were probably still drinkin' from that fountain (shudderin')
Madonna exploited her free sexuality to any and everybody who would listen. The concept of drawing the line was foreign to her. Even as she began to age, she still continued with her exhibitionist behavior as seen here with Miss Britney...
Miss Madonna is now at the milestone mark of 50. When is enough ENOUGH??!! She's still trying to recapture her youth as you can see in this pitiful, unphotoshopped pic...
Next on the homefront we have America's new public-relations princess...
She got her humble start as a strip...Aw man, I'm sorry. The politically correct term would be exotic dancer. Please forgive my ignorance. But like the Jefferson's theme song says, she's movin' on up!! I mean, she went from bein' this no name chick's main squeeze...
(Ol' girl's fade is pretty tight, huh? )
to bein' King Kanye's permanent arm piece...
She now has secured a modelin' contract with a very reputable agency. Most would say that she's on her "grind." Ok. I can't argue with that. But at what cost? What about her reputation and her image? I guess it just doesn't matter when you're ballin,' huh?
Should people launch their careers and keep them going by any means necessary? What types of limits should be set if any?
I need to hear from YOU!!
It was a media feeding frenzy. Could it be true?? Chris "Bam-Bam" Brown was accused of goin' upside the head of his wifey, hip hop's hottie Rihanna. At first, I wasn't sure if this was just part of the gossip grid or what. Yet when I caught a peek of her lookin' like her and Laila Ali had been goin' at it all day...
I realized that something unsavory and unsafe happened in that car that night. Did Rihanna deserve to get a smack down? Did she incite Chris's anger by things she might've said or done? Truth is, we probably will never know what REALLY took place. After all, she's got her version of the truth and he has his. Despite how men and women all over the country might have wanted to take him to a dark alley and deliver a sharp uppercut of their own, he had his day in court.
The halls of justice basically just swatted him on his bottom and told him not to do it again. From what I heard, that was ok with Rih Rih. The story was that she didn't really want him to be punished anyway.Could it be because she would no longer get to control Chris's...shall we say.. magic wand?
Is it because she was indeed feelin' guilty about the possibility of him havin' to do a bid?
The world may never know. Consequently since he has been given his punishment, he recently issued a public apology to her...
Awww...well who could stay mad at that face, right? Let me ask you something. Do you think his apology was sincere? Was it maybe just a public relations ploy to help rebuild his somewhat shattered image? Should Rihanna let him back in (if she hasn't already)?
What if he gets down on bended knee...will that help?
Question. Would you be willing to put your own life at risk to get the things you've always wanted? What kinds of things would you do ...
My heart felt like it was tap dancin' on the top of my stomach. With steel toed boots on. Sweat was drippin' and rollin' ...
