Hey everyone. Whoosh. What an interesting week last week was. Just too many talking points. We’ll get to them over the rest of the month. Now, todays post was inspired by King B herself – Beyonce. Yup. Contrary to what most of my female readers think, I don’t hate Bey
I only think Kelly is way way cooler. In fact, one of the things I knocked off my ‘achievement list’ yes, I have one of those last week was copping her ‘4’ album. This post is however not a review of the album, I already did that on twitter.
One of the tracks on Beyonce’s album, her newest single as a matter of fact has a video out. And as I watched her clad in a beautiful wedding dress
if I do say so myself… yes, seeing her in lingerie was’t the only beautiful thing in the video crooning the lyrics:
I wanted you bad
I’m so through with that
Cause honestly you turned out to be
The best thing I never had
And I’m gon’ always be
The best thing you never had
Check the video here —> Best thing I never had.
Yes ladies, those are the correct lyrics.. if only, you’d stop looking at the male model she got married to in the video and get back to the post.. thank you..
As I was saying, watching Bey say those words got me thinking, wondering about them. Best. Thing. You. Never. Had. A quick run through some of the comments we had here last week and some of the conversations going on in my social media world last week made me realize just how much a lot of us have bottled up inside. Maybe it’s the hypocritical nature of our culture
no apologies here or it’s just us a nation, as a people, because it’s something I’ve noticed over time; black people are experts at bottling things up, stringing emotions and holding on to our past.
I tried to get the guys here to loosen up a bit last week when I put up the ‘Living with Marvin‘ post. Well, read the comments and see for yourself what happened. So today, I’ve decided to adopt the only technique that has been proven to work with black folks when trying to get us talk.. Rants.
Yup, you heard that right. Forget what you saw in Beyonces video, when you’re worth over a million dollars, married to someone worth well over triple that amount, you can afford to have a smile on your face while you’re ranting. Anyways, so the task today is simple.. ok, ok, not-so-simple. If you could picture yourself standing face to face with that one person you once thought you couldn’t live without, that one person you thought was the best for you and some even said that you guys were bound to get married, that one person who totally fooled you and ripped your heart out of your ass…
Yes, if you could stand face to face with he or she right now, taking into consideration how far you’ve moved on, how much you’ve achieved (or not) since you left him or her. If you could stand looking them straight in the eyes and say pretty much anything… what will those words be and why?
So, there you go. Use the comment box and speak your mind. Cheers.
