Lupe Fiasco B!tch Bad (My thoughts)
Well I came across Lupe Fiascos new music Video entitled “Bitch Bad” a few days ago and I had to get on here to express my thoughts.
OUTSTANDING is the only way to describe this fantastic song and video.
It speaks about how influential music and music videos are today and especially influential music is children.
I spoke about the state of music in my previous post a few weeks back and the fact that so much music today seems so generic and mind dumbing at times.
One thing I maybe did not go into enough is how concerned I am by the things being shown in music videos today that young people see on a day to day basis and so many inappropriate things in the charts these days.
These things have no water shed even though a few have argued about this in the past nothing has been done about it.
Children are being subjected to so much over sexualised music, low murals, and low value of money, drink and violence.
Another point in the video which I totaly agree with is the way in which some woman are degrading themselves and not knowing self worth or value and then trying to attract a man and wondering why they are undervalued.
It is important for us as adults to be more aware and monitor what our children sees and hears.
Obviously if there is a moral to the story that teaches children something I am all for it but I for one find my self monitoring the music videos my children watch.
Of course allow children to have fun be innocent and be children it is not about not allowing them to have fun and enjoy music but it is most defiantly about realising the impact that music has on the children today.
Now of course many woman are ladies who knows how to take care of themselves and carries themselves well and would never allow them selves to be degraded in any way, shape or form. When you watch the video then you will have more of an insite as to what I am referring to.
Woman should start acting like ladies with respect for themselves in order to gain respect in order to allow men to respect more ladies instead of the disrespect of “Bitches.”
Of course there are many Ladies out there who care and demand respect “I for one” How ever there is a generation of woman who are lost.
There are many gentlemen out there who has so much respect for woman but there are the few who degrade woman and music has a lot to do with it.
This video is something all should watch and gain an understanding of.
What I love about Lupe is that he is not afraid to step outside of the box and he delivers music you can relate with and actually understand.
He is a very thought provoking artist who does not care what the mainstream is pumping out but instead delivers fresh meaningful, educated music.
Underrated but aren’t all talented artists these days? Let’s change that!
I really enjoyed the Olympics and I am so proud of Team GB.
I was a proud supporter of both Team GB and Jamaica and boy did they deliver.
I love how it has given everyone a buzz for sport, my little ones have said to me that they want to bring home gold medals and are already perfecting many sports with the Olympics in mind.
I think it is great that children of all ages enjoyed it and have become more active.
I loved every moment and I am now missing it so much, I am now looking forward to the Paralympics.
Both teams won some medals
Team GB 29 Gold 17 Silver 19 Bronze
Jamaica won 12 medals
Many new records were set this Olympics with Jamaica finishing off with the 4×100-meter relay final.
The Jamaican team finished in 36.84 setting a new Olympic relay record.
I had to share some of my many favourite images from both the teams.
Images are not mine and are solely for blog use.
Well the Olympics have well and truly begun and we had a fantastic opening ceremony yesterday here in London.
Now I must say that when the show begun I was not sure what to expect I just knew it would be spectacular and I waited with my children with excitement.
I personally enjoyed it I loved the start and the way it gradually built up. I love the way that it represented English history, English arts, England’s culture and diversity.
My View is Danny Boyle did an outstanding job of trying to show what Great Britain is all about he showed our arts, movies, music, our history, our sport, our royal family, our culture. This man managed to even get the Queen involved with James Bond may I add which was one of my favourite parts.
Musical performances from the Arctic Monkeys, Dizzy Rascal and Paul McCartney to name but a few of the UK talent that did us proud. Oh and Mr Bean was a pleasant surprise! I realised we have so much to offer and so much to be proud of as a country.
Now during and right after the opening ceremony I heard reviews via twitter and Facebook mostly positive but many complaining that this was not included and that was not included.
Also there were many comparisons that it was not as good as the Beijing Olympics in 2008. One thing I was upset by was the fact that many said that we in no way topped Beijing’s Olympic ceremony.
I think that we should be embracing what we are all about not what another country is all about. Yes Beijing had a spectacular show but so did we and it represented Great Britain so well I thought.
I think the competitive edge has already begun before the first game had even started, however credit where credit is due. This was an amazing start and I was left beaming with pride and excitement.
Yes more could have been added in, but how much more realistically could have been crammed in?
David Beckenham’s speed boat entrance was just amazing and the lighting of the Olympic Stadium flame was mind blowing. Seeing Muhammad Ali was such a lovely touch.
Every country owes it to itself to be true to their culture.
I think that Danny Boyle won Gold last night well done and good luck to team GB.
I heard the sad news this week that Sherman Hemsley, best known for playing the outspoken George Jefferson on the “The Jeffersons,” died this week at 74.
I have fond memories of him as a child on the Jeffersons, fresh Prince, the Cosby show and a different world.
He was so funny an great actor and comedian.
