Baldy Scaldy??!!

So this is what's hot in the streets these days... female celebs shaving their heads and thinking it's cute? Stop the madness ladies! When Britney Spears did it, we all knew she was losing her mind. But lately I can't tell what kind of statement these women are trying to make. I understand maybe doing it for a movie role, but not "just because". The half-shaved head thing was kind of cool and creative at first, but now that everyone is doing it, it's lame/whack/psycho! And they're going to have a hell of a time trying to grow it back evenly...

Who will jump on the Bald Bandwagon next?? Time will tell...

Bruno = Porno


So, a week ago I went to see Bruno. I foolishly thought that it would be Borat part 2 with just a "happy" twist. I was wrong. Dead wrong! I left the theater not only offended and dissatisfied, but also surprised and upset with myself for actually sitting through the whole movie. However, I wasn't about to walk out after paying the ridiculous new adult ticket price of $10. I spent most of the movie covering my eyes and gasping at what I heard.

Bruno was disgustingly hilarious... if that makes sense. As I squirmed through many of the scenes I kept wondering if what I was seeing was actually happening. Was it real or staged? I'm still confused. The multitude of homosexual mimicking was very offensive because Sacha Baron Cohen is actually NOT gay and it felt uncomfortable to laugh.

The opening sex scene was so unexpected and absurdly vulgar. I honestly didn't think there would be any more scenes to follow that could be equally repulsive. Silly me. Bruno should have been rated X, not R as the previews were a bit misleading. I was visually raped with no warning. I will not describe any of the scenes in detail. Partly because I've erased all of the images from my mind (took me 3 days to recover). And partly because I don't want to sicken my readers. However, I will say that the movie contained lots of sexual innuendos, both unbelievable and outrageous. The ending music scene was worth laughing at though.

Here are some notable Bruno quotes:

"I'm curious about becoming straight but I've got a few questions first. Will I still be able to hug men?"

"Are you allowed to date other members of the team or do you have to wait until the season is over?"

"So what does freedom mean to you? Freedom in Austria is a lot about being able to walk down the street with my boyfriend Diesel just holding hands is that what you're campaigning for?"

"Vassup! Being gay is the new coolest thing, so that's why I've come to the gayest part of America - Alabama!"

Hilarious or Insanely brave? You be the judge... Definitely my most horrific movie viewing experience ever though. Would I see it again? Ich Don't fink so (No way)!

Side note: I didn't know Sacha Baron Cohen invented the character Ali G, silly me again.

Celebrity Crush: Yuuup!!!

So lately I've developed a somewhat innocent crush on Trey Songz, post braids. I guess there's something about a fresh, low cut on a light skinned brotha who can sang (and rap too)... plus a nice smile, sexy tattoos, dreamy eyes and a newly buff figure. Below is some eye candy of this fine male specimen:

"...sittin' patient, steady waitin' for the day when I can face it... the one that can love me for who I am and so much more..."

Is it you?

My Strawberry Letter

Sooo... I recently completed Steve Harvey's book, "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man." In my opinion, this is a must read for all women seeking love. It is not only informative. It is honest, unbiased, deep and thought provoking. Mr. Harvey puts his manhood on the line by guiding women on a "how-to" mission. He lets us know what a real man lives to do for the woman he loves (protect, provide and profess), opens our eyes and is bluntly truthful about what we already know about ourselves while simultaneously giving us tips on what we can do to attract the man of our dreams.

Steve Harvey paints a vivid picture for women to see clearly, with eyes wide open. As a reader, I was thoroughly impressed and satisfied with the content, chapter breakdowns and examples relevant to the abundance of advice. From now on, I will "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" and await my happily ever after. Thanks, Steve.
