Am I Beautiful Enough? Mary Jane Speaks

I don’t know if you guys caught the show this Tuesday 3/31 but I thought it was a great topic that a lot of teens, youth and adults deal with. The media, society and our peers are no help. We are constantly being judged; made to feel that we are coming up short. Is it ever enough? If you are blessed enough to land a cover shot on a magazine, most times its Photo-shopped and you wonder who is that you are looking at even when it’s you. I experienced that and I have to admit it made me feel some kind of way. As if I wasn’t good enough naturally. We need to learn to support and love all of our sisters in all of our beautiful shades. I love “Being Mary Jane” because Mary Jane is just as flawed, confused and wants the things that an everyday sistahgirl craves. So I think all women can identify with her. I know we can all identify with our imperfections, because at the end of the day we have them but I need you to love and want me in my imperfect self. Guess what? You are AMAZINGLY IMPERFECT IN YOUR OWN SKIN and I receive and embrace that! Keep your light turned up....
Empire Season Finale Recap

Empire Season Finale Recap

Now you guys know that I always have a comment about “what’s happening and what’s hot.” We all know that Empire is smoking! People are questioning what’s the attraction and addiction. Well I think that Lee Daniels is putting our secrets on front street. We can all identify with a character on that show, whether it’s the mental illness issue that we never want to address, our views on homosexuality, inter-racial relationships, hating on our own sisters, secret agendas and of course the God-like complex that some people share. He is telling our story in an entertaining, flashy, “you don’t want it” kinda way. You know the way we really want to feel and share, but can’t. As soon as the finale was over we started sorting through it, will POWER match up? Did we think Taraji was badder that Annica? Did Terrance carry his end? WHO WAS HOTTER Hakeem or Jamal, Was the music Timbaland’s best? Mario Van Peeples directed the first hour; Debbie Allen did the second. Whose ending was better?  My question is why can’t they all be great in their way? Why must we compare/compete? Can’t we all be fabulous in our way. We all have a light….shine yours! Chile...

Say what you want but that Empire lays me out every Wednesday. Taraji is killing that Cookie character. I love all the dynamics and real life everyday story lines. Hats off to Lee...
