First things first- Can I say that I am beyond SHOCKED that news has surfaced Will and Jada have separated???? Yes, I know that I don’t know them, but let’s be real. We hold celebrities to certain statuses in our lives, especially when it comes to relationships. weight, looks, money, etc. And it seemed that the Smiths had it together-a beautiful family, talented kids, businesses, both were currently working. I know more than a few of us thought that Will and Jada were the epitome of Black Love, right up there with Ossie and Ruby, Angela and Courtney, Bill and Camille, the list goes on. I know it’s NOT going to happen, but we should leave the Smiths alone during this very personal matter.
Next up, I saw “The Help” last Sunday. While I appreciate my girls inviting me out and having a bang-up Sunday night, I really don’t know my thoughts on the movie. I had no desire to see the film, but I didn’t have any plans (and they changed the time they were going just for me), so I decided to go. “The Help” was an enjoyable film, but I don’t know if I liked it. Honestly, I have to see it again before I can do a real Southern Girl Review.
I bought Beyonce’s “4” about a week after it came out. I am probably once of the biggest Bey Stans there is, but I don’t think I’m a fan. As I told a friend, I’m not a Ballad Beyonce fan (think “Listen”); I like more up-tempo, dance hits (think “Single Ladies”). And since her newest album is more ballads, I wasn’t feeling it. I have been listening to it more with the intent to give the album an honest listening to and determination in my opinion. As of today, the jury’s still out.
So, that’s my rant for the day. No rhyme or reason, no logic. Just my thoughts on some things that are going on in pop culture. And for those of you who know how I feel about the Kardashians, I purposefully did not discuss Kim and Kris’ nuptials this weekend. Until next time, I’m just a Southern Girl…in the city!
