I love Brandy.
I have all her albums, probably watched all her movies, and a huge fan of Moesha.
She is a beast on the vocals.
But, somehow I feel she doesn’t realize that.
I can relate because I, too, suffer from “Oh I Iz The Shit?” sometimes.
Usually that happens when I am not getting my way and acting like a brat.
Sometimes we all need to wake up, put ya foot down, and say:
“Dammit you know, I’m fucking amazing.”
I feel like Brandy doesn’t do that.
She strikes me as too humble, while mixed with insecurity.
I loved-ed you B Rocka!
Brandy has a Behind The Music coming up…
But she shared some info in a recent interview that was sort of a “well, duh” for me…
As Ray J puts it, his sister Brandy was at one time, “America’s sweetheart.” The singer was just a teenager when she released her first album, Brandy, later starring as the girl-next-door on her own television sitcom, Moesha.
In a clip from VH1’s upcoming Behind the Music special, Brandy says that in public, “It was all about setting this perfect image.”
That perfect image was one that Brandy never felt she quite lived up to, a friend reveals in the Behind the Music sneak peek. Brandy’s squeaky-clean persona was threatened when the 23-year-old revealed that she was pregnant.
Along with the announcement that Brandy was having her first baby, she also introduced fans to the child’s father, Robert Smith, whom she identified as her husband. The relationship didn’t work out however, and a year after Bran gave birth to her daughter, Sy’rai, she and Robert officially announced their separation.
What fans didn’t know, and what Robert later revealed, was that he and Brandy had never been legally married. In her Behind the Music documentary, Brandy, admits, “The lie about being married was the fall of my career. Everything changed.”
Brandy, who’s been working on her upcoming album Two Eleven, also discusses the fatal car crash that brought her serious legal trouble in 2006.
Her Behind the Music episode airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. E.S.T.
I think a mixture of things caused her career to decline.
I wanted to ask you guys if you think Brandy has a chance of reclaiming her crown?
she needs to strike now while “the great one” is dealing with her young.
do not mention her name.
you know she has spies and I just added new paint to the foxhole castle.
