So Much To Say...PT 1

Seems like I'm always doing "catch up" posts...
Which is really a hot mess, cause I'm always tombout how I have no social life. LOL

So now we gotta cover a gang of life occurences in one goes!

First, I have to pay homage to the late great King of Pop, Michael Jackson. I know a lot of folks are mourning, some that really just jumped on the bandwagon cause its the story du moment, but I genuinely loved MJ. The first song I ever sang to my mother was Ben. One of the few happy memories I have with my real father is Saturdays (when he actually did come to get me) watchin Moonwalker with my cousins, imitating the moves. I was always Michael. :) I almost had that Dancing Machine dance sequence PERFECT! Ona my favs to this day...along with Goin' Back To Indiana!! (c'mon now...I grew up there! Gimme a break!)
Since I'm mad late on his death (June 25) and his public service is tmw (July 7) @ the Staple Center, I'mma refer to summa my fave bloggers so you can appreciate their stories about how Mike touched them. I concur with all of them!

RIP MJJ...I know you, Aaliyah, Left Eye, Rick James, James Brown, Ray Charles and many other great musicians are up there having a GREAT TIME!

On to the FUCKERY...
Wow. I mean, I don't know whether to laugh hysterically at the antics or cry for my people. I think I did both. It did have its high points. Jamie and Martin in "Stank Robbers", a hat-less Ne-yo performing "She's Out of My Life", in tribute to MJ, and the O'Jays showin da young bucks how its done in their set.
My problem was...well...
I mean, they pubbed it soo big; CNN was on their red carpet! Let's be for real here, I would say 75% of the folx that watched would not have seen it @ all if we hadn'ta been looking for a proper tribute from the ONLY BLACK Entertainment channel on TV. Hayle, I don't watch BET any other time! The foolywang that passes for quality programming there...SMDH. (How you gonna have a show called College Hill where the ninjas don't go to class!?!?!)
And then...
Aside from leavin MJ nearly totally out in the cold...I have 6 folx in particular that rubbed me the wrong way...
Tiny & Toya, Frankie & Neffe, and Lil' Wayne & Drake.

The wacktastic programming about baby's mamas and relatives of stars?? Huh?
And Drake, boo...I know you are popular. But you are still new, and you shouldn't let folx herd you off the cliff! Wayne?? SMDH. Why you got your daughter and her friends on stage during a song in which you tombout fukkin ery girl in da world!?!?
What matter of COONERY was this!?!?!
Again, I'm late, so I'mma share some posts by some of my fave bloggers... special shouts out to MissJia for the video post...she was GANGSTA!
