im thinking this is a promo of sorts.
idk about her starting a rap career but im lowkey feeling this; its nice to see she has a hard side. i may just check for her new album.
the second half, "basic instinct", sounds like its gonna be a dope single though.
ciara, you have my attention.
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
why are so many young adults,mainly young women, [ages 17-23 or whatever the age range is] feeling ready to settle down? just about every girl i know, minus my bestie & half the time, myself, is tripping about being single or wanting to take the next step with their significant other. My question is why? Why, at such a young age do we feel the need to be tied down? To 'belong' to someone?
Now is the time that we should be experimenting, its the only time that we are really free to explore ourselves, our likes, dislikes, & build & evaluate different relationships with people without the pressures of adulthood that come with dating.
Let's face it: the shit we like now most likely wont be the same things we are into years down the road.
An old schoolmate of mine got married around some time last year, she was 18. What happens 10 years down the road when she & her husband grow apart or their feelings change? I dont mean to be pessimistic but the chances of that marriage lasting are pretty damn slim.
Is our need to be desired that overpowering that we feel incomplete within the confines of our remoteness?
I once read somewhere that "we like people not so much for how we feel about them but for how they make us feel about ourselves."
Speak on it.
Coming from a network that had BET: UNCUT where in just about every video, women were being treated as objects and were being portrayed in demeaning roles ---anyone else remember tip drill---?, I find their reason for not supporting Teairra unsatisfying.
Upon initially hearing the song, I loved the fact that she was back out. I appreciated her talent & how catchy the song was. I was a bit hesitant to sing along in public or blast it while on the road & all that just because the lyrics alone are opposite of what I stand for. However, once I saw the video all my inhibitions went out the door because I felt her. My interpretation of the vid was its great to have a dude who is willing & able to take care of your every need but that doesn’t have to be the end all say all. You can have that & still take care of yourself. Just because your dude has money doesn’t mean you have to rely on him. That’s what I got out of it.
Someone from T’s camp said that BET should have given her a chance to address the topic---hell I think they should hold an open forum on the topic of trickin/gold digging alone. If they’re so focused on the young women being misguided by the artists, why not sit em all down with the young women they’re affecting & speak on it?
What are yall thoughts?
