well tinashe has been trying to get us to like her.
she said something recently about racism and the music industry.
she says there can only be a few black females at a time.
hell maybe only one.
this is what she told necole “no” bitchie in a recent interview…
“For me, I feel like I still have to represent the [Black] community. That has been what has been my struggle because people do feel like there is only room for one. There is a Beyoncé, there is a Rihanna, there is Zendaya, there is a Jourdan Dunn. There is a Black girl in all of these positions and we don’t need another one.
It’s just kind of ridiculous because there are like a hundred blonde, white actresses and leading ladies. There are a hundred rappers that all virtually look the same, sound the same, and dress the same and no one cares. But for some reason, when it comes to young women, they want to pit them against each other. There can’t be room [for us all]. There can’t be five Black girls winning. It’s weird.”
i agree with her.
stan culture is the main reason for this.
its ridiculous that we can only cape for beyonce or rihanna.
its like one or the other.
everyone else who even tries is a “flop” to them.
i miss the 90s and the variety it brought with vixens.
…and others who followed after that.
i don’t know who they are and where they went,
but i’m sure their one hit single was fantastic.
here is one:
…and even with the pop snow bunnies.
back in the 90s,
…and all of them had good offerings to the music table.
some had nice one hits,
but were very enjoyable.
so i really don’t think its an issue of racism.
it seems more like “not a lot of good prospects in that genre”.
…aaaannnnndddddddd that is the problem with tinashe.
she is kinda boring.
like the “toyas”,
and countless other pretty vixens who sing and dance,
she doesn’t really have “it” factor.
in the 90s,
all those vixens i mentioned had variety and “it”.
who came late had “something” that made you watch her.
my favorite mya song:
nothing about tinashe really grabs and holds my attention.
i can’t seem to want to listen to her debut album or even a mixtape.
i enjoyed her dancing for janet’s tribute at the bet awards,
but if i never saw her again,
i wouldn’t even care.
she seems like a nice chick tho,
but she just doesn’t push the meter.
well for me anyway.
so i had to ask the foxhole this question…
Can Tinashe find a place in a “Beyonce” and “Rihanna” world?
lowkey: maybe she should date someone famous.
look what it did for ciara.
no one seems to care about her music,
but will stan the fuck out of this relationship with russell wilson.
maybe tinashe should go that angle?
