As usualÂ I was surfing the internet on the latest news in the world of entertainment today,Â when I came across concrete loop’s post on the Keyshia Cole interview from Essence Magazine. Of course, I read the article and several of the comments when someone foolishly replied “Keyshia’s lazy, she’s not as hardworking as Beyonce is and they are both 26,” – or something to that effect. Of course, immediately outraged with that comment, I had to reply:
Keyshia is NOT Beyonce. Keyshia DID NOT have the pleasure of growing up in a nurturing environment (so to speak) as Beyonce which would have enabled her to start early and get that advantage that Beyonce has had – that support is fundamental. Beyonce had parents who quit their damn jobs for their childâ€™s dreamsâ€¦ and where was Keyshiaâ€™s mom. Exactly! As far as yaâ€™ll hating on Keyshiaâ€™s looksâ€¦ Keyshia has come a MIGHTY long way. Sheâ€™s definitely not as ghetto looking as she was before, therefore I am proud of herâ€¦ SISTER GIRL is doing the damn thing! I was proud of her at the NFL Kick Off and I am proud of her now, sheâ€™s showing us a different side of her and I like this side a whole helluva lot better than before. Additionally, Keyshia offers a more realistic perspective on relationships that the AVERAGE woman deals with without sugarcoating itâ€¦whereas Bee (and I do love me some Bee okay!) but Bee is signing with the silver spoon still in her mouthâ€¦. she has no ideal what it means to undergo hardship and she never will.
Love live Keyshia Cole!!!
Now of course, I don’t expect the simple minded heifer who wrote the initial comment to understand that perspective and it’s cool. I just wanted to get your feedback on the matter… WHAT DO YOU THINK??????
