motherfucking get it girl

This past friday I had the pleasure of watching Drake's new video for his song "Practice" now mind you I was at work when I saw this video



Didn't have my headphones on me so there wasn't a way to hear the audio. But even without audio I felt that on a whole, the video lacked a lot. It was too simple, it didn't flow in any way, and it seemed like it had ANY real production value other than a camera set on down someplace, old girls mug all out of focus in the camera's lens and boom it's straight to tape!


Botleboxxer is right about her not being able to dance, can you say Video Vixen, but SERIOUSLY?? DRAKE IS A GREAT ARTIST?? 2012 might be the world comes to an end cuz if old boy from Degrassi can get signed by Cash Money and all of a sudden he's not the biracial bully from the Canadian kids soap opera, he's a fucking star! Please stop yanking my chain, he will forever be Jimmy to me, aka that nigga in the wheelchair.




Other than those general qualms with the actual production of the video, I must say this young woman, Kyra Chaos, and HER LARGE ASS seemed to captivate me. I couldn't live a lie and call her a lady because a true lady wouldn't make her ass her moneymaker and would probably be making better decisions in the business world other than, "Is my ass ashy? Does my thong match my earrings? Do I need to invest some stock in cocoa butter and coconut oil?" All of that aside, it makes me wonder are massive asses that size still considered sexy? Wouldn't you feel a bit empty inside if all you're known for is your inflated ass? Something about her ass doesn't seem real, how does she get such a thin waist with such a large rump? Does she get stopped on the streets and asked to have a picture of her huge donk? Why is this suitable for a music video for someone like Drake?




But after coming home and getting a chance to actually rewatch the video with both audio and video, I nearly blew my lid. Drake, aka Aubry straight out LIFTED the whole fucking chorus to Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up" among other things. SRSLY BRO? Dont get me wrong, there is a slight variation of the song and a few seriously weak and utterly stupid verses but COME THE FUCK ON, where's the lyricism? Can you not give us something original?




I loved this video, I would go apeshit when it came on MTV back in 2000! Being a Cali girl it was like a dream, a glimpse into a world I would never be able to see in Los Angeles. Naive 13 year old Danielle  had no exposure to what true grime was and what it meant to be from the hood, the dirty south, or anything rural but as I watched this video the people in it reminded me of caged animals clamoring inside of their confined prisons, grappling with one another to grab on the bars to get a glimpse of the outside world and freaking the fuck out at the sight. But I seriously feel disrespected with what Drake did to such a fun loving song. He has a problem taking and disrespecting things that dont belong to him ei. Serena Williams. Come on Drizzy you think you're gonna be able to take Common's thick ass girl, trash him in songs and get away with it?

All in all I can't really hate on Drake too much. He's a popular "musician" making music that the masses enjoy, I can harp on the fact that the music and entertainment industries have changed considerable since I was a fan of music videos.



I just wish we could go back to the simpler days, when music and music videos were king and all I could do is sit infront of the tv with my eyes peeled open, scribbling down the available information for the videos I liked and indulging in the decadence that was 2000's MTV. #RIPMusicTelevision

your ecards

for a short while now I've been trolling reddit, and have taken to collecting the funniest ecards I come across there and various other places on the web. here are a few, hope you enjoy them!

NEW YEARS, HOLLERRR!






 GOD! "facebook stalking" is never fun when it happens to you, but it is still very much alive and thriving with a lot of people I know and went to school with. but just to get things straight, social networking started with myspace, not facebook.


 this latter social networking card is probably the only reason I still have a facebook, not to put other people down but sometimes it's interesting to see the daily gripes of people who seem to be swirling in the toilet bowl of society and REFUSE to see the light and climb out, just enjoying the ride. side note to the haters, no body fucking cares about your dumb cheating boyfriend, stop flooding my feed with your grime cuz it's not gonna evoke sympathy just giggles



haters gonna hate, plain and simple nig

rings true for my life, but living in socal it shouldn't be as hard as it is, holler if you feel me girls / raise the rood lulz :(

 STORY OF MY FUCKING LIFE!!  *spell check its tomorrow not tommorrow

turn my business lady swag on

I know in the past few months (or more) I've been lagging on posting to my blog and updating the interwebz on my various fun activities but I am here to say that in 2012 I promise to be a bit more vigilante in posting. So jumping things off this year, I've started an internship with BET, meaning I would need to dust off my business casual attire and look presentable to corporate america and "the industry." This gives me a better chance to get back to my lookbook. Let's do this!



















Feb 3rd outfit: Mossimo turtleneck, Charlotte Russe camisole, Gap Skirt, DTLA boots, & Forever 21 Sweater

quick photo shoot with my bff before our long days in school and work(note the cute little confused dog in the bottom of the frame)

longhairdontcare

So today while trolling Reddit before work, I happened upon a link title "bitch i'm flawless" which prompted this photo




 Intrigued about who this mystery man was, I dug a little deeper to find that his name is Clay Matthews III of the Green Bay Packers and it got me thinking. It's def not the first time I've seen a professional football player with a long flowing mane but nonetheless I was interested on seeing who Clay Matthews is. After checking his wikipedia page I find that he is not only a SoCal native but a Northridge grown, and USC educated football player and it all clicked. NOW I know why he peaked my interest. I'm hoping I can be correct in saying that there are very few football players in LA would take vanity to this extreme. I dont know the guy personally but what I could see from his online life was he EXUDES the LA pretty boy vibe, but what I do know is that there is definitely a level of ultra vanity that some pro football players get. But int he case of Mr Matthews it seems to be an amalgamation of a few things 


 LA PRETTY BOY UPBRINGING + LONG FLOWING HAIR + USC WALK ON + GREEN BAY SUPER BOWL RING = THE BELOW





Is there some unwritten code that manly football men with long hair make the best hair models?

 


Not to bash on footballers or even Clay but if it had to be any pretty boy pro footballer, Namath could get it any day of the week.
