Aggresive Huh?

10 Jul

Here we have 2 celebrities, 50 Cent & Floyd Mayweather, who have predicated their careers on  an image of aggression and violence.  As you can see a photographer took a picture of them sharing drink.  Is it me or does it seem suspect that these two are posing “hard” as ever while drinking a Strawberry daiquiri.  Let me repeat for emphasis, they are “grilling” the camera with daiquiri’s in their hand; not beer, not malt liquor, not cognac but a fruity mixed feminine beverage.  Now don’t get me wrong I’ve had a few daiquiri’s in my day, but I have never sold myself out to be a violent/ uber-aggressive alpha male or made a career out of it.  I’m not questioning their manhood, I’m questioning the image.

I just thought it was funny to see this picture and witness these two “grimey” fellas enjoy a choice beverage.  Maybe just maybe someone in their camps will inform them its okay to lay off eating gangsta cookies for a while.  I think it would be a great idea to post this picture in every club/bar as a reminder for all the “party thugs” to let it go and act normal.  Wouldn’t it be nice?  Enjoy that strawberry in your drink tough guy!

Hilarious… A picture says 1000 words.

“How Does It Feel”

8 Mar

The man who brought us the video below has fallen mightily from grace & proved some of my assumptions wrong:

Yesterday, he was arrested for trying to solicit fellatio for $40 from an undercover officer in the West Village.  The irony is that in the video above, he was rumored to be on the receiving end of that very act.  This video was game changing and forever cemented his status as a sexual icon in history.  I can recall many a female reveling in his gestures & lyrics.  Women of all ages would swoon over his voice and he once had the career trajectory of a young Al Green.

When this video came out he was the topic of discussion in beauty shops & barber shops in urban America, albeit for different purposes. His arrest is notable for a couple of reasons.

1. We assume artists (especially R&B acts) are gifted with women

2. Why is he paying for it? I’m sure thousands of fans would do it for free and he should not have to be “tricking”.

3.  Given how much he has let himself go, perhaps wooing women has become a bit of an obstacle for him.  See the picture below:

“D’Angelo Today”

I wonder if the female officer asked him upon his arrest, “How Does It Feel?”

I’m at a loss of words. A Snuggie? On the red carpet? I know Chris Brown spared no punches, but she clearly has lost her bearings.
