Know your history. John Oliver hits the nail on the head. Again :)
This is spot on and friggin awesome!
Beyonce shouldn’t have brought her daughter to see her perform. She is too young to be watching mommy grinding and smacking her ass. She is too young to understand the vague message written and spoken on a screen about being a feminist. As much as I am not a fan of Beyonce, I do applaud her for talking about being in charge in the bedroom, the give and take of being in a relationship and the changes we go through becoming a mother. I just wish she didn’t do it in front of her daughter.
A student uses poetry to respond to the objectification of women in rap. This wonderful slam reminds us that words have meaning, weight, and power.
To read the comments under the video one would think, this means nothing. Nothing will change. So does that mean we should sit back and do nothing? Hell no! It means we need more voices like this to make our voices heard. Women are not equal to a table. We are not just objects to lay a glass upon. We are important and if we ever became unified on a mass level the world would fall to its knees and thank us. Until that day occurs, we must not be silent. We must speak.
This woman and her band are on constant loop in my ear. Love them! She is an incredible singer and woman. The Dap Kings are a great band! Watch and find the rest of her catalog and listen. You won’t be disappointed.
The intensity of this cover is worth the listen, bookmark, revisit, tweet, retweet and whatever other attention can be paid to it.
There has been a lot of death in the news, seemingly most recently more than ever. Perception is a skewed, but it doesn’t lessen the anxiety it causes. Take time to listen to music on full blast. Watch your favorite movie as many times as you want, in your pajamas. Watch a new film, explore French films, classics, indie, Anime. Who cares? Just find life, grab it by its scrawny, little, worthless, until you put it to use neck and tell it – I WILL ENJOY YOU!
