this new generation are all “talented”, aren’t they?
everyone has some talent they want to present to the world.
it is almost becoming sickening.
i swear you can’t meet anyone who isn’t “something”.
i haven’t met the new shot lawyer or extremely talented police officer.
everyone who is black online is coming out with a record,
about to star in a movie,
gay guy is styling everyone and their mama,
big tits and fat ass means you are a model,
has work out training videos…
… and whatever else to get 2,000 friends easy.
hell, even being a blogger is over saturated.
i’m not trying to knock dreams,
but are these “starry eyed” goals realistic dreams these days?
remember when people said they were going to be a singer and it was fascinating?
everyone who thinks because they can hair flip on stage,
they are beyonce.
i had to ask…
Is everyone black headed to Hollywood?
i was watching love and hiphop ny last night and tahiry is about to be an artist.
this chick who has no star quality besides her butt cheeks wanting stardom.
i had to ask myself who did she let in those butt cheeks that will put her on the mic?
as mean as it sounds,
this whole “i’m going to be a….” thing is getting out of control.
bad enough erica mena, olivia, and l’oreal are still chasing dreams that will never happen.
have you noticed the difference between white and blacks on the come up?
after some observation,
white people go about stardom much differently.
they actually do it and make it somewhere.
black people tend to “wish, hope, and pray” someone notices them.
we think that because we are light skin and attractive,
we will be on a runway in fashion week.
black folks also do a lot of bragging and showboating online.
i can’t tell how instagram has become the new place for extreme narcissism.
is it the new thing to “promote, promote, promote!“?
“YO COP MY EP! REAL SHIT SINCE 2PAC!”
“YO I STYLE HOES FOR VIDEO SHOOTS AND STRIPPER POLES!”
“YO I MAKE MY OWN CLOTHES FOR HOOD COUTURE!”
you hardly see white folk with instagram trollin’ for acceptance.
many times you don’t know what they do until they tell you.
they take pictures of flowers, cats, and grass all while pursing whatever goal.
they make their way into the door and already have a team.
they could all be fake as hell,
but they work together until they are all making money equally.
is it because of the color of their skin?
or their focus and work ethic?
why is it so different in the black world?
what’s the point of backstabbin’ each other being at the bottom?
i’m not saying “white is right” in this entry,
but they sure do handle their careers a lot differently.
the real question is,
at what point do you stop chasing your dreams?
there is so much everything,
where do you stand out with this “talent”?
i see so many bloggers now that i wonder where do i fit in?
i guess all i can do continue to write and try to grow in a positive direction.
stand out and do my thing the way i do it.
i started to wonder…
Is being a “celebrity” becoming overrated?
