Rumpshaker by Deelishis

So, it seems that every other gossip blog on the internet is trashing London “Deelishis” Charles over her new song, as well as, the video for her first single “Rumpshaker”. I think that most of critism of her is coming from the displeasure with her enormous booty. I personally don’t see anything wrong with the song or video. She isn’t doing or saying anything that any other artist is doing. She’s shaking her ass and showing off her body like every other woman in music right now. The video and choreography looked like something you’d find in a Beyonce video…complete with the part from the “Get Me Bodied” video/song where she instructs the ladies to do ridiculous dances.I know the Beyonce fanatics will argue that Beyonce’s dancing is classy…well there is no way to SHAKE YOUR ASS!!! Let’s just get that out there. Beyonce dropped down and swept the floor with her ass the same way Deelishis did…a move you would find in AnyStripClub, USA…but this is not a Beyonce/Deelishis comparison.

Seriously, I don’t know what people were expecting. Let’s face it…it’s that BIG behind and then her great personality that make Deelishis memorable…but mostly it’s that big ass. Don’t hate Ms. Charles for knowing and using what she has naturally to brand herself. That’s just good business sense…which is making her some serious bank I might add. She makes an almost ridiculous income from just dragging that bountiful blessing behind her to various engagement, plus she even started a clothing line for the countless women who have a hard time finding jean to fit their ample asses and small waist. I wish someone would pay me to just show up to an event with my big ass in tow.

Then there are these idiots with all of these morals judging her. Kiss my ass! Again if someone paid me just to show up with my big ass in tow and smile for pictures…let’s just say I wouldn’t be blogging…I’d be to busy showing up, lol. I think the vulgarity( and I don’t mean that in a negative way) of her body make people, especially women feel uneasy and it’s mainly because it’s something that you can’t easily look away from or believe. Most people can’t believe that she has that much muscle control over an ass that big…I know I can’t and contrary to popular belief every woman CANNOT shake her ass like a stripper.

I love Deelishis. I think the song is just as listenable as that “Pop, Lock and Drop It”, “Get Me Bodied”, “Umbrella”, “Buy You A Drink”, and any ass shaking song coming out of the South (home of yours truly) right now. So she’s shaking her ass…so what…that’s happening in AnyClub, USA any night of the week. And for all of the dumbasses who keep saying “what is she gonna do when her ass starts sagging”…she gonna sit back on it and count all the money she made while it was still plump. Shake on Deelishis, shake on.

I’m not ashamed to admit that Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham was my favorite Spice Girl…and I still love her. I watched the “Coming to America” Special on Bravo (I don’t care much for NBC, ABC or CBS) and she just tickled me silly. She reminded me so much of one of my friends that I called her and told her to watch herself on TV…I mean right down to the checking the make up at the DMV…and ladies and gentlemen, let me just add…that they do let you retake the picture if you don’t like the first one (here anyway) because you are going to have to pay for both licenses but you only get to keep one.

Anyway, I think ole Posh is great. Secretly, don’t you think that she was Paris Hilton’s Idle. You just know, ten years ago when the Spice Girls ruled the world and all the little girls were choosing which Spice they were going to be that Ms. Hilton was like “I gonna be Posh…she’s Hott!” Funny thing is that probably when Posh was in the group, she was longing to be this uber rich chick married to some handsome rich guy and now….viola!…dreams come true. Not only is she filthy rich but she’s married to one of the sexiest men on the planet and people hate her for that reason along. People also hate that she is vain…but come on…is that really a crime. A little obnoxious but not a crime.

Think what you will about Victoria Beckham, I think all of her recent TV appearances and the “Coming to America” special, have shined a new light on her. She seems to be a down to Earth, loving wife and mother…even if she does wear heels with every outfit and she’s rail thin. Everyone of us has a friend who is just like Posh…always worried about her looks, closet full of the latest designer fashions, obsessed with handbags and high heels, would die before she gained five pounds, but under all of that superficialness…she’s a good person. Oh and if you don’t have a friend like that, then you are probably the Posh Spice of your circle of friends. Oh the horror! LOL!

I ran across this video of Kathy Griffin trying to give money away in Los Angelos, CA around Christmas time.  People would only turn down free money in LA. God Bless her for trying

After pushing her album back for nearly a year and a half, Kelly Rowland’s sophomore efforts “Ms Kelly” is set to debut to staggeringly low numbers. She is set to sell under 100,000 copies of her album leaving her ranking number 6. Poor management, poor promotion and poor planning have left Kelly in a position that will make it hard for her to get another record company to take a chance on her. It’s evident that she alone does not move units.

Kelly pushed back her June 26 release date because she didn’t want to go up against 50 cents, whose album was scheduled to release but was also pushed back. She did however feel confident enough to go up against T.I. the self proclaimed King of the South, who is set to sale over 500,000 units. Whose brilliant idea was that. After lackluster performances and numerous release dates, it seems that fans have lost interest in Kelly. Though her album is not that bad, in fact it sounds just as craptacular as that B-Day mess Beyonce put out, but Kelly just doesn’t have the star power to sell us a load of bullshit. She’s a beautiful girl with a body that supermodels would envy, but she needs more stage presence and a better show.

I can’t wait to see if the Knowles clan is going to throw all of it’s resources behind pushing this album down the public throats. Will we see a video for every song on this album? Will Kelly get to release video and singles for five of her songs on this album? Are we going to see her almost every other day on TRL or BET? Is there going to be a Spanish version of “Like This” released? Is she going to do a crossover duet with Kelly Clarkson? Are MTV, VH1 and BET going to start showing the commercial for her album nonstop? The answer to these question is NO. Kelly has pretty much gotten all of the promotion she is going to get and unless she has some remixes that are going to thrust her into stardom, then her solo career is pretty much over. I was really rooting for Kelly but I feel that it is all over for her.

Al Sharpton has called foul on yet another blatant act of racism. Is it to protest the interracial couple being thrown out of a private club in Arkansas? No. Was there more police brutality that resulted in the death of an innocent person? No. Did a school board vote to return to segregation in a small town in the South? No (coincidentally that is happening and no sign of Rev. Sharpton here). No, the incident that has caused a media war between Rev. Shapton and gossip media giant TMZ is an article the gossip site wrote on Ms. Beyonce after the BET Awards two weeks ago. In the article, Beyonce’s scanky outfit was referred to as “Roboho”. Stop the damn presses! Someone said something negative about Beyonce. Well, we need to pull out our signs and put on our walking shoes and prepare to march in protest. How dare they say something negative about the institution that is Beyonce. Give me a f**king break!

The argument can’t be that they call Beyonce a hoe…and so what if they did she’s not the only person they’ve called a hoe or slut or scank. One thing I can say about TMZ is that they are truly and equal opportunity insulter. No one is safe from their insults…not a slutty Paris Hilton or a trailer trash Brittney Spears who are subject to insults on a daily basis by TMZ. Why should Beyonce be spared…because she’s black? If Beyonce were the only celebrity that TMZ insulted in this manner then the Reverend would have a leg to stand on, but that is not true in this case.

There is enough social and racial injustice left in the world that there is no need for the good reverend go make something out of nothing. If he needs something or someone to protest then he should be marching outside of VH1 studios for the ongoing negative light in which, they portray black women. This network openly cast women whom present themselves as, uneducated and ignorant sexpots. I am much more offended by this network portraying black women as dumb, bootylicious, skanky, gold digging hoes, willing to degrade and devalue themselves for a man or money. There’s a cause that should have called the good reverend to arms.

Well the hope that MoNique could turn these poor examples of women into respectable young ladies was flushed down the toilet with the VH1 Charm School Reunion. Saphyrri and Leilene actually turned their lives around in a positive manner. Of course, their accomplishments were completely overshadowed by Brooke being proud to be known as a whore, Schatar being proud to be known as dumbass, Crystal being known as a potty mouth and don’t let me forget Shay and Larissa who brought her ghetto ass mama with her.

It was true embarrassment to black women and blondes everywhere. Brooke was dumb enough to say that black women are more conservative while her behavior was the norm for blonde haired, blue eyed white girls like her. Becky-Buckwild, was quick to check Brooke telling her that her whore like behavior didn’t represent her, after Brooke went to her for confirmation of her claims. The most disturbing and disgraceful part of the show, was not the fight between Larissa and Shay, because we all saw it coming and well, we expected it. The moment that Black America wanted to crawl under a rock came when Larissa’s mom rolled her big ass out of the audience to try and check MoNique, when she should have been getting at her vulgar mouth daughter.

I will say that you could tell that Shay had some home training because, when MoNique, her elder, told her to be quiet, after making a complete fool of her self by arguing back and forth with Larissa, she shut up…out of respect. She even apologized to Larissa and America for her distasteful behavior and childish name calling…add one more lady to the show. MoNique made a heartfelt speech about the plight of black women and how we are view in society and how we help to shape that negative view. In the end, Larissa and her mother listened and Larissa responded like the scared little girl she is.

In it’s quest to change America’s view on young black women Charm School failed miserably and VH1 got another highly rated show at the expense of black women.

I know I’m a little late on this one, but who cares. I like this video, but the song is just…um..it’s alright. Nothing that I’d have in my ipod, but I wouldn’t turn the station if it was playing on the radio. Ciara looks really pretty and 50 looks like he’s been doubling up on the steroids…but that just as assumption. He’s probably just big boned.

Don’t you hate when you buy an album from your favorite artist and you wish you could have listened to it first. Me too. Here are enough songs hopefully to help you decide. What? I know you didn’t think I was gonna give you the whole album.

Saaphyri at 2007 BET Awards

Saaphyri  wins!!! It came down between Leilene, the stripper, and Saaphyri, the hoodrat. Yes, between the reformed stripper and the remade hoodrat…the hoodrat wins! Don’t feel sorry for Leilene though, she won an agent as her consolation prize. Saaphyri even got those God awful ugly Ugh boots back. I thought that my eyes would roll out of the sockets, when she fell to her knees thanking god and crying…that was not charming. I don’t know, maybe she was that moved. Who am I to judge?

It has been apparent that Saaphyri had won for the past week or so though, with her popping up at celebrity events during the week leading up to the BET awards. The only other Charm School ladies photoed were Goldie (Courtney) and Boots (Larissa) and we all know neither of them were going to win. Plus, it was evident by her full body overhaul that she had come into some money. I wonder if she put a down payment on her own house? If so, then good for her!

A part of the show that I really did enjoy was after Shay was railroaded off by Becky, Saaphyri and Leilene, MoNique brought her back as the surprise judge to decide who would go on to win the $50,000.  Lesson learned: Watch who you step on as you climb your way to the top.  Shay stepped up and proved that she was a REAL woman after all. When put in a situation, in which many of us would most likely seek revenge, Shay rose to the occasion and put her personal feeling aside and make her decision…kind of. The highlights of the show can be see on Vh1’s VSpot.
