No One

Okay, I promise I am not on a Music Video kick. This blog will not turn into a critique of whose hot and who’s not in the world of vocal vaginas. I was actually on Youtube, looking for the nasty video everyone has been talking about when I ran across this new video by Alicia Keys (don’t ask me how that happened). At any rate, I love this song, so I thought I’d speak on it, or at least on Alicia.
As you know, I have never been an Alicia Keys fan (you would know this because I just said so), but I do think she is a great talent. Also, even though I try not to listen to her music (I am such a hater) she always comes out with some damn song that I just can’t help but like. Above is one of those songs. I find myself searching for it on the radio, hoping it will come on so I can sing along (I really need to stop admitting stuff to you niggers or else I’m gonna have to turn in my hood card).
I don’t really know why I don’t care for Ms. Keys. I think it has something to do with the fact that I believe that if it hadn’t been for her, India Ire would have gotten more of the spot light. I allowed myself to get all caught up in that bogus, light skin/dark skin controversy (kinky verses curly hair, you know what I’m talking about). You know how they both came out at the same time and India got nominated for so many Grammies and didn’t receive a one? That bothered the hell out of me, for some reason. I have no idea why. It just seemed like such an injustice to me.
The funny thing about Ms. Keys is that I was at the barber shop the other day and they had the television on BET’s 106 and Park, which was playing another new video by Alicia. As it was playing, my barber commented on how she (Alicia) was “coming out hard” and “hitting the competition up” with new hot songs. The topics of conversation went on to her new album and how they were gonna have to go get it (knowing damn well they were just going to purchase it from the next bootlegger that rolled into the shop). Then one of the barbers commented on how sexy and thick Keys was, even though she had a white mom and shit. He went on to say that she needed him to be her man. That is when my barber made the comment that Keys didn’t want no man. She was into the ladies. I just sit there and listened and tried not to get drawn into the conversation. It did make me wonder why it matter; you know…Why is it that people are so interested in who other grown ass people choose to sleep with? Does it really matter who Ms. Keys chooses to bump nasties with? Does the fact that she may or may not prefer to lay with women diminish her talent? I don’t think so.
No matter who Alicia Keys sleeps with, whether it be male or female, it doesn’t change the fact that she is one talented chick. So talented in fact that I think the bitch is on steroids. HA!

Steroids might explain her thick thighs. I just bought her album, not as good as her first, but it has this old school feel to it. Something music is lacking these days. I keep having soulja boy nightmares!

I like your writing it really has me thinking…why are her thighs so thick? Why does everyone think she is all that, she is talented, but she ain’t all that…why is she single?

One Man’s Opinion said...

Mspuddin', please don't even mention soulja boy to me again. If I hear it one more time, I am going to go buy myself some dress blues and blow my own brains out "A Few Good Men" style. "What me uuuuuuuuu".

Lol funny ending. Love your writings. I dont care too much for this song but I think Alicia is pretty HOT! And for damn sure it dont matter if she's gettin nasty with a lady or man, her talent is what it is. If however she's single cause she likes the ladies then Im alright with that too...I just need to contact her then ;)

guerreiranigeriana said...

you know, i haven't really done too much around alicia either...don't really know why...but this song definitely makes me not interested at all...she's yelling and there is nothing distinct about it...i honestly thought it was neyo or one of those boys that sings like a girl...what's going on with you?..first crackhead whitney, now alicia...hmmmnnn...*scratches head*..is there something you need to tell me?...

...and i say sleep with whoever the hell you please!!...

One Man’s Opinion said...

GN-you got one more time to call Whitney a crackhead and it's you and me. I won't hit a woman but I know some crackheaded chicks, from the street, who will; for a biscuit and a chicken wing. Don't make me start cooking!

I really don't care whether Alicia is on "roids" or not. I do feel India.Arie was cheated that year because Alicia was more politically correct for a number of all the wrong reasons. No offense to Alicia, but today I believe India is the better artist.

Rodney said...

Whatever! All I know is I hear this damn song at least four times a day from someone who rides by my house blasting it from the car stereo. If I hear it one mo time, I'm gonna find the bulldagger and kick her in her fat thigh.

Just kidding! I'm not making terroristic threats, officer.

One Man’s Opinion said...

You called her a "bulldagger". That is so wrong.

mountii said...

i completely agree with the 2nd comment made by:mspuddin


FURTHERMORE...Alicia would make an excellent lesbo, her and BEYONCE can have a two way. Scissor legs anyone

BUT ON A SERIOUS NOTE...India did deserve some awards but i don't think it was because of skin color it was because Alicia had a larger fan base...Alicia's songs were more catchy like R&B/Hip Hop and India's music is more Neo Soul which caters to blks and has no real cross over appeal

mountii said...

AND IF MY ASS WASN'T QUEER I WOULD BANG BOTH THEY ASSES...I DON'T KNOW IF INDIA WOULD LET ME...SHE'S TOO CLASSY AND ALICIA'S GAY SO EITHER WAY I'M SCREWED


LOOKS LIKE I WON'T BE SCREWING THEM IF I WAS STRAIGHT OR NOT

LOL

Rodney said...

India.Arie is crazy as cat shit, but most artists are a little insane.

One Man’s Opinion said...

Mountii, you are a mess.....Rodney, India is not crazy...You take that back!
