Fashion has become so cliche don't you agree? Im just tired of it! Everyone's a damn fashionista...fashion this, floss this, fly this, blah blah blah! Stars even think they can be designers nowadays, and they just can't be, because they don't even know how to piece a pair of pants together, let alone mold and shape an entire collection that just so happens to be unoriginal, based/inspired from an old Chanel silhouette, or filled with gold bling and hideous velor! It seems like they were just chilling on a lawn chair one day, reading their monthly dose of "fashion rag" and they were like "hey i can make really ugly things that cost a lot of money too! and im not even European!" Gimmie a break...and a kit kat...and a j..and some kool aide while ur in there...
Now I do love certain celebrity lines, like MK & A's Elizabeth and James, or Pharrell's BBC, and even LAMB, but i don't think a record deal should come with a "clothing line" clause. Stick to your guns, sing, rap, or act and remember not everyone can do everything--only a unique, small group of individuals birthed from the loins of Zeus himself, can pull off the triple threat thing. So before you sign on the dotted line and become a mega rich multi platinum oscar winning superstar, think about how much damage you could cause by plaguing the world with yet another horrid celebrity clothing line...like "house of...", bad way to go, or "(insert letter here)-Unit, both bad places to venture! If you want more publicity, I recommend killing yourself in a video--with a shovel...

So I've been on hiatus for a couple of weeks...big deal, its the internet, your allowed. I would like to take the time out to preach a sermon from the Church of the Sacred Mattress on Easter. Now I planned on going to church today, but it just didn't work out so I've decided that I'm taking the time to reminisce on Easter's past. As a child, the biggest thing about Easter was the Easter dress and the Easter suits. It seemed as though the department stores catered to black people during the month of March, specializing in poofy flowered bright ass dresses and tacky lime green, lilac purple, baby pink, and sky blue pin-stripped suits that your grandma would say you looked "sharp" in. (note: if your grandma tells you, you look "sharp" run for the hills). The Easter dress seemed like a huge deal to like the entire black community, and it was of course accompanied with white patent leather shoes, an Easter church hat, as well as a white purse. The boys had it the worst, those damn suits always had matching shoes to go with the suits and if you were really lucky and had a really generous fam you had a hat to match and maybe your fathers old gold chain to go OVER TOP of the button up shirt and tie.
For the record I hated those dresses because they were itchy and I hated those patent leather shoes because they didn't have heels on them. I've thought about wearing all black to Easter sunday a few times, but I think the church people would stone me, and my mom probably wouldn't let me eat dinner. (sad face). Thinking back I never got an Easter basket or took a picture with the Easter bunny, which is kinda sad, I think I will deprive my kids in the same way though-but they wont be able to escape the wrath of the Easter dress! muahahaha!! With that said, make sure you look your flyest on Easter for God because he died for YOU and heaven only takes the "flyest" these days cuz they're reaching capacity, no room for sragglies! (that's a joke)
so i did wear black...taken after the stoning..
