KabQueen On The Move...Literally.

Thursday, August 27, 2009 2

So I've actually known about this but I may as well make it known. I'm originally from a suburb outside of Los Angeles, California and after much thinking, praying etc. I've decided to move back to California.

St. Louis has been good to me but I know its been time for me to move on especially for my career path. I'm pretty sad that I am leaving, I've made my closest friends here, I've basically made my life here and to switch it up is going to be kinda weird. But I'll be living with Mom and Dad (we'll see how that goes) and it'll be nice to be closer to them and my brother.

And you can't hate on the weather!

So I just wanted to keep ya'll updated and better believe I WILL be blogging about this new experience!

For The Boys Who Rocked My World

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 5
Today I was reminiscing on the crushes I used to have when I was younger. Literally these boys used to make me swoon!

First Brandon Adams.

You know him from the TV movie "Polly" with Keisha Knight Pulliam, The People Under The Stairs, The Sandlot, The Mighty Ducks and a few episodes of Fresh Prince, but he stole my heart as little Michael in Moonwalker.

I recently found him on Twitter and tweeted that I had such a crush on him back in the day and he even tweeted me back saying thanks! Man I was smiling ALL day!

Does he still make me not so much but he'll always be boo from back in the day.

Lastly Jason Weaver.

We all know him from Smart Guy, ATL and many other things but he stole my heart as little Michael in The Jacksons' American Dream.

I couldn't deny a face like that.

Would I holler now? Nah, not so much. But he is talented so hopefully we'll see him in more and possibly less bootleg movies :cough: Love For Sale :cough:

Funny how they both played little Michael Jackson and I both loved them. Ah, memories.

Old Habits Die Hard...I Guess

Monday, August 17, 2009 1
This comment was so outlandish I had to vent about it.

Today my roomies and I were discussing the stigma of darker skin women having shorter hair. Its sad to see that some men and even some women overlook true beauty because it's not packaged in the standard of "American Beauty". What makes it even more sad is to see African American men publicly downgrade dark skin women who wear their hair natural. My roomie told us a well know man-whore/jerk around St. Louis made a comment about her natural hair on Facebook.

Let's view Exhibit A:

"that is do you coloreds maintain such nappiness!! im so happy to be a (he put his last name here)!! need a comb?"

*The guy who said this has light skin and very curly hair*

I couldn't even find the words to say after we saw this. Its a shame to see how American standards of beauty have plagued the black community. Are we suddenly now not considered beautiful because the texture of our hair? I got so mad to see another black man not only refer to another black woman as a "colored" but blatantly disrespect the style she chooses to wear her hair. As my roommates discussed this, it all brought memories of girls in elementary school that would be "grossed out" at texture of our hair and the oil we had in it and that we weren't "normal" because we didn't wash our hair everyday. And for another man to say pretty much the same thing, at that a black man?? I ask myself, how was this boy raised? Was he taught that the finer the hair the better? This type of view is embedded in him and it probably won't change.

This made me realize is that the racism within our own community still lives and still continues to tear us apart. The light vs. dark complex is apparent throughout the media. Black women in hair commercials always having sleek, straight hair, makeup ads targeted towards lighter-skin women. When black men are discussing the beauty of women the comment "she's cute for a dark skin girl" always, always, always comes up. It's been said to my face, and I think 'is that supposed to make me feel better about myself?' Why do we feed into this obscure opinion? Why are celebrities like Lil' Kim, harm their bodies to make themselves look lighter with more European features. Why don't black men embrace true beauty with whatever shade or hair texture?


There's so much more I want to say but I could continue to talk about this for weeks. So ladies and gents, how do you feel about this comparison of light vs. dark, natural vs. straight? Will this issue continue or are we seeing changes within media of what black beauty is?

Let Me Count The Ways

So I had my iPod shuffle on while riding in the car and this song came on. It's a throwback but I love it and love vintage Shemar Moore even mooorree!

I feel like I've been gone forever!

But I had a wonderful time in New York! It definitely made me realize that that is the city I need to be in. Mission move to New York City is ON! Special thanks to the ladies of Almost Famous for giving us great suggestions on where to time we're hanging out ladies!

New York makes you wanna step up your fab game too, just so much individuality for great inspiration to add to your own personal style. And can we talk about the men!

Beautiful! Fresh lining's everywhere...gotta love it. I'll definitely be sure to update with pics once I download to the comp. But that's all I got for now folks...hope everyone is doing well. I'm brewing some new posts as I type so more to come!
