And the Grammy Goes to...

The biggest night in music came and went...

The whole world knows who Taylor Swift is now, even my grandma. Lady Gaga is a creative psycho gone mad and she apparently isn't aware that halloween is in October. Beyonce finally announced to the world that she is no longer a "single lady." Pink obviously wants to join the circus. All Rappers do is curse. Maxwell makes sexy jealous. Elton John is alive. We all know white me can't jump, but Dave Matthews proved that they can't dance either. Jamie Foxx blames it on the alcohol at all times. And finally, country music rules!

Taylor Swift has sold over 10 million copies of her first two albums so she is deserving of every award she gets. However, she should #thankKanye. He helped her crossover. Beyonce won 6 out of 10. She should have won 7. Robbed again. She should #blameKanye. The Black Eyed Peas should battle the Red Hot Chili Peppers for their name because they spiced things up with their performance... <--- #corny. Best performance of the night IMO. Pink was courageous, careful and... CrAzY. Can't believe she pulled that off. #noway. Lil Wayne outshined Drake in his Grammy debut. #typical. Luckily their fans were able to fill in the blanks of the bleeps... while others flipped the channel. The MJ tribute was spectacular. I sooo wish I had some 3D glasses for that. I should have put on a pair of shades like my mom suggested. #blondemoment. All in all, the Grammys were fun to watch. Then again, I am obsessed with celebrities. #dontjudgeme

Just Cause You Got An Opinion Does That Make You A Politician?

The President spoke to the world last night during the annual State of the Union Address. While those in attendance applauded routinely each time he said something to spark a reaction, those watching at home sat back and formed their own opinions (freely) about his plan of action to fix things gone wrong in today's economy.

I've never been a huge fan of politics, resultantly, I will never be the victor of a political debate. However, I did vote for Barack Obama. Not because he's African American, but because I was drawn to his oratory skills and his demeanor. When he speaks, I want to listen. He's relatable, passionate, understanding and fair. I have faith in his words and promises because he actually knows what it's like to be a regular American. Obama exhibits hope and promotes true American values, especially the belief that we are all equal.

"In the United States of America, no one should go broke because they chose to go to college."
-President Obama

Moving on...

I read a status on Facebook yesterday that bluntly and disrespectfully stated, "fuck Barack Obama and all of his supporters." Pure ignorance on full display and a misapplication of the freedom of speech right. Yes, we can all say what we want, how we want and when we want, but when it becomes unnecessary slander meant to do harm and offend, something is terribly wrong. I personally take offense to stupidity that holds no merit when it is used as a tactic to evoke an emotional response from others.

Dear Facebook friend,

Despite your negativity and lack of consideration for other people's feelings and beliefs, I thank you for inspiring me to write this blog.

P.S. Yes we can!
P.S.S. Fuck you too!
