Lil’ Mama looks like Lil’ Baby Bamma

Here’s my Lil Mama freestyle…your outfit is lame, your outfit ain’t poppin,  walking on the red carpet and all the jaws are dropping.  What you wearing B…whatcha whatcha wearing B?!?!?!?!

Obviously the worst dressed star on the red carpet last night for MTV’s VMAs was Lil Mama. She looked as good as Britney Spears performed. Terrible on both counts. I don’t know if she was trying to look like Little Bo Peep or Baby Hughey! This is not fashion. He looks like she’s a drag queen at one of those Balls…like she’s about to break out in a Vogue Battle. And the pasifier…blinged out…that’s horrible. Where is her stylist? Oh where or where has her fashion sense gone…oh where or where can it be???

Procter & Gamble Unveils ‘My Black Is Beautiful’

CNNMoney reports…P&G/ ESSENCE Poll Reveals Overwhelming Majority of African American Women Say They are Portrayed ‘Worse’ than Other Racial Groups in the Media – P&G Elicits Support from More than 3,000 Journalists, Business and Community Leaders During 2007 National Association of Black Journalists Convention

The Procter & Gamble Company announced the launch of “My Black is Beautiful,” a program designed to ignite and support a sustained national conversation by, for and about black women. The initiative was created to serve as the catalyst for a movement that affects positive change in the way African American women are reflected in popular culture.

Results from a P&G/ ESSENCE poll show that 77 percent of African American women are “concerned” about the way they are portrayed in popular media. The vast majority, 71 percent, say they are portrayed “worse” than other racial groups in the media. Sixty-nine percent of respondents said that teens are negatively influenced by those images.

Recognizing that beauty and self-confidence are intrinsically linked, P&G will introduce “My Black is Beautiful” and release the results of the consumer survey during National Association of Black Journalists Convention (NABJ), slated for Aug. 8-12, 2007 in Las Vegas.

“‘My Black is Beautiful’ is a celebration of the personal and collective beauty of African American women and encourages them to define and promote a beauty standard that is an authentic reflection of their spirit,” said Najoh Tita Reid, P&G Multicultural Marketing Director. “We not only celebrate our own awesome beauty, but we want to empower black women to challenge those who would see or portray us otherwise.”

Key components under development include a multi-city “My Black is Beautiful” Conversation Tour and the release of a discussion guide to encourage women to facilitate or participate in a conversation cluster in their local communities. Consumers can learn about the campaign and access the booklet online at http://www.myblackisbeautiful.com, and at select retail stores and in national magazines.

Additionally, P&G has created a “My Black is Beautiful” community trust fund. P&G will continue to issue action grants to community-based organizations dedicated to the health, education and empowerment of African American young women. A grant of $50,000, underwritten by Tampax and Always, will be awarded to and shared by the W.E.B. Dubois Society, GirlSpirit-Women Song Inc. and Urban Academy in June.

“Over our 37 year history, ESSENCE has embodied the strength and beauty of African American women,” said Michelle Ebanks, President, Essence Communications Inc. “We proudly stand with P&G as they invite women across the country to come together in their homes, libraries, community centers, schools and churches to share their perspectives on the issues that are important to us.”

The integrated, multi-brand initiative is supported by Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural, Cover Girl Queen Collection, Olay Definity, Crest, Secret, Tampax and Always brands and will be sustained through comprehensive brand communications, including public relations, advertising, retail promotions, event marketing and grassroots efforts.

Fat March…so many things I can say

Some top fitness experts are angry over a new reality TV show called Fat March, which they say has contestants doing too much walking too fast, putting them at a high risk for injuries.

Fat March is the latest in a series of weight-loss shows like The Biggest Loser, which thrust heavy people into an inappropriate boot-camp environment, exercise experts say.

The participants, whose initial weight ranged from roughly 230 to 519 pounds, began by completing 65 miles in eight days of walking over a two-week period.

During the first two weeks of the march, a 274-pound female contestant quit because she said her lower back and feet hurt; a young man was rushed to the emergency room for dehydration. The heaviest contestant, the 519-pound man, was taken to the emergency room with blisters and possible stress fractures in his feet. On the second episode, when contestants were walking about 10 miles a day, several complained about aching knees, feet and ankles.“- From USA Today article – Aug 20, 2007

I submit this as another example of how fat is unhealthy.  If people over, let’s say, 230 are so healthy, wholesale with no exceptions as many people try to get me to think, what about the contestants on this show.  Experts are saying that walking several miles a day…not running…walking…is too much for these people to take physically.  If the typically healthy person could do this without injury…then doesn’t that mean that these people have compromised health?  I won’t get fractures in my feet from just walking 5-6 miles, and I’m not small or thin.

Oh Lord, someone has mixed booty shaking, paris is burning, and wrestling…I think

Booty Shaking Battles…ok.  This is hilarious.  Why are the men even on the stage?  These woman can shake their asses with out rubbing up against a man.  Women do it in strip clubs day and night.  This is some ghetto stuff.  I think it would be more appropriate to call it “Simulated Sex Battles”.

Becky aka Buckwild…your ghetto pass is revoked for this mess!

What kind of slave auction ass, sudo-dating game mess is this. Potential Negro #1, Potential Negro #2…WTF. What white person in their right mind is going to play a dating game called “Know the Negro” and not realize that someone might be offended? I’m going to need Mo’Nique, Shay, and the chick who’s hair looked like fire and the rest of the african americans who were on Flavor of Love and Charm School to check this chick. For real.

Know the Negro…know that negroes aren’t going to be feeling this. Come on people…wake up. This is what happens when you let white folks get a little to familar with you. They can’t tell offensive stuff from fun stuff. We have to educate Whitey. It’s the only way they will learn. For the brothers who called in to the show to be the negros…damn…you know better than that man. You guys are encouraging this.

Becky aka Buckwild…do not pass GO, don’t collect $200, no more black dick for you…your hood pass is revoked. “Kick Rocks!”

Cowhead Show on 102.5, take the hoods off and listen a min. I don’t even have words to express how ignorant you are. However, I’m sure you’ll get many letters and calls from people who do have the words. Enjoy the free publicity while it lasts, bitches! Just because you are in a picture with a “negro” doesn’t mean shit to me. You know only a black radio show could have possibly gotten away with this…you can’t. Sure sure, it’s not fair and equal, but neither is racism.
