Pimped Out & Talked about: CONTROVERSIAL NEWS

In Griot, Movies, News on January 30, 2011 at 9:06 pm

Controversial News - Terry McMillan & Bishop Eddie Long

“All news ain’t good news” and so it stands in the case of Terry McMillan. The “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” author is back in the news, but her current groove is anything but good news. Peep what she said on TWITTER about Will & Jada Smith “pimping out” their kids:

“The Smith children already act like child stars. There’s an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior. I find it incredibly sad,” McMillan said on the popular social networking platform on Jan.27. “It feels like the Smith children are being pimped and exploited. Or, they’re already hungry for fame. What about 4th grade?” Terry continued, “A lot of A-list movie stars shielded their children from the Hollywood-world until they were old enough to decide. Look at those who didn’t. Look at Lindsay. Phoenix to name, but a few. They miss out on childhood. It’s more important than fame.”

Later on Terry apologized in reference to the botched seam
Specifically for using the word “pimp” – but stands by ‘what she means’:

“I apologize for using the word pimp and exploit in referring to the Smith children. It was insensitive of me and wrong. Twitter is not the best forum to express some things. I didn’t know folks would take my opinion so personally. It is amazing, though, how fast an unflattering comment gets retreated versus one that’s flattering. I’m done with this issue. My opinion isn’t going to change anything. There are a lot more important things going on in the world right now. My Mama used to say: ‘They’ll talk about you if you do. And talk about you if you don’t. Let ’em talk.’ Some folks look for a reason to criticize you. They’re getting off on it and are saying much worse things than I did. I’ve got work to do. I hope everybody who has something important to do today besides worry about the Smith children, does it. And for those of you who were so offended by what I said or thought I was being disrespectful, unfollow me. So, I’m on blast? Too bad when I talk about what’s happening in the government, the GOP, racism, love, etc., doesn’t go viral.”

We know Terry isn’t hating on the Smiths. [?] She was just dropping a neighborly word.
It just wasn’t true of the legendary deux, though I pray other doting parents have heard.

It’s truly crazy how many adults ARE indeed pimping out their kids.
Fortunately for Jayden & Willow, those parents aren’t the Smiths.

Meanwhile mediations behind-the-scenes are lawful and certainly not wrong
which brings us back to the the ‘character hack’ of Bishop Eddie Long.

Recently he gave an interview to Channel 2
since the media ripped his story & bid him adu.

So quick to swoop in and scrutinize private lives
then dart off at the whimsical cost of the next sensational rise.

Here’s what Bishop Eddie long had to say
in his brief (no personal questions) interview the other day:

“It’s a wonderful celebration of a time when our nation needs hope, when people need to see people who rise up and are doing great things and actually making a difference in someone’s life.”

I don’t know what he meant, or what the comment is in full reference to,
but if you click the link of what he had to say, you can peep the video view.

Every man is innocent until proven guilty – and so applies to the Bishop as well,

Acknowledging that all news ain’t good news thus our thwarted “news peruse” spell.

We’re pulling for the good of both Terry & Eddie — and definitely wishing them well.

NEWS PERUSE

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Technology on January 26, 2011 at 9:31 pm

Yep! It’s that time again
that we thumb through the news to see what is IN::

Looks like Michelle Bachman was committed to botching up the authorized Republicans surmise,
reading straight ahead – but filmed from the left – gave her a look of ‘roaming eyes’.

Chris Matthews and Bill Maher both they think she’s talking while “hypnotized”.
Boehner and Palin better WATCH OUT! Michelle Bachman (+ fan base) is on the rise.

Post hearing Michelle’s speech Chris called it THE BIG CARTOON SHOW & topped it off with “LET ME FINISH”…:

“I speak in all objectivity here –anyone who calls on the American media to investigate Congress for Anti-Americanism has no knowledge of the General McCarthy period. No notion of what McCathyism was. Anyone who says as Bachman did this week that Slavery in this country, (our original sin) ended with the Founding Fathers is beyond hope. We fought a Civil War to decide to end slavery. 600,000 men on both sides were killed to end this evil and the Founding Fathers DIDN’T END IT.

Slavery is written right there in The Constitution — the part to treat slaves as 3/5 of a person. People know this. You and I know this. Most Americans know that it took the Civil War to end slavery and it hurts in our national memory. Slavery hurts. It’s hard to imagine people accepting it. Justifying it – but they did, and it took almost a century of our history to end it. And another century to end JIM CROW.

I don’t doubt that there are some decent and knowledgeable people who are going to Tea Party events — but what I don’t get is why they sit there and let their movement be represented on national television by a loony tune”.

WHAT IS MC CARTHYISM? I’m glad you asked….
The term McCarthyism, coined in 1950 in reference to McCarthy’s practices, was soon applied to similar anti-communist activities. Today the term is used more generally in reference to demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents.[2]

Chris went off explicitly. Right?
Catch the re-run of his broadcast later on tonight.
Knowledge is power & Chris drops insight.

So what did you think about the STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS?
I think he did good. He would’ve said more – but couldn’t have said any less.

He’s focused on the futureas we all should in looking ahead,
because the steel mill work is forever outsourced & corporate security is dead.

He’s focused on getting America in shape & back up on her feet.
He’s into moving forward in being a force in future technological competes.

Yeeeee! I’m with he. Let us be progressive and stake new claim.
I’m glad The SOTU was about the future & not a show of upcoming campaigns.
Yep-Yep Our president is duly doing the dang thang.
Whether he means to or not – this brothers got game. 🙂

Pre-Friday is at hand, and I feel like we’re already there,

Enjoying recent news
, such an uplifting and folly affair.

PS — here’s a broadcasted “lesson to learn” for breaking districted rules:

Trudging uphill w/Phil

Dr.Phil

Todays run of Dr. PHIL Housewives was pretty good. I am honest in saying “I have not been diligent in watching the saga” – but each time I tune in, it’s feline relative.

A whole lot of cat fighting,
nail biting,
bitch-inciting,
minus the scripted writing.

I dig it! So WHO are the WOMEN on the HOUSEWIVES panel? Meet:

So much fun!

Todays episode found Alana digging deep into Gloria’s britches
No foul name calling, just a whole lot of profane wishes.

Gloria said she didn’t give a F#CK and felt invoked to yell out: SHUT THE F#CK UP!
Alana then inserted her piece without any ‘grease’ and things got rough.

Alana felt Gloria was disrespecting the Dr. and the others with her sailor charms.
Tempers flared – no feelings pared, thank God it didn’t result in swinging arms.

Rachel was looking pretty innocent – but has bigger fish to fry of her own –
Unprotected sex has planted a seed and her gestation time has grown…

Rachel and her beaux are courting; she’s got some knowledge, but doesn’t have a job.
Rachel direly needs to get a grip on reality and Dr. Phil pointed out ‘the knob’.

He arranged a corporate score for Rachel- by way of a high potential job interview.
Rachel used the “like” and “you knowfiller lingo – the whole way through.

She pumped herself up and padded her political skilled truths,
but when asked about Arizona’s SB 1070Rachel didn’t knowwhat it do‘.
Oooo?

A job may be what her life duly thirsts,
But she will definitely need professional coaching first.

Jennifers husband just ain’t right – though as of late, he’s been softening up.
Jen says his current behaviour is repulsive and that she’s really had enough
of feeling sorry for herself, and living alone with a husband that constantly cheats.
Jennifer will be laying it all out on the table for “our closer scrutiny” on next week.

Kimm was pretty quiet today and Michelle did a slight show of ‘lay low’.
Michelles biggest comments came when ROBIN dropped in on the show.

Other than that Alana and Gloria hogged the spotlight indeed.
They did such a good job – I’ll be sure to tune in again next week.

I’m indeed a ‘feline she’ – who works and plays from home – best,
