SCRAM !!! YOU SCAMMER !!!!!!

Is the response i used to an email i recieved from a "JOHN LARRY" from "FHM".

BOLOGNA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This post is made specifically for my models, and aspiring models.

There are posers, imposters, theives, and just bad people all over the net; who will use your dream as a weakness against you.

Im gonna give you some tips on how to spot em >>>>>>>

1) Never pay for anything ! No websites ! No credit card numbers ! No money orders !

When i say websites i mean online modeling agencies who claim they have clients to look at their site. Please ! You want someone to see you, go to agencies in your area ! And even then dont pay anything, because they usually have photographers they make deals with, when they tell you we will work with you but you have to pay this or that to shoot with our photographer...he/she is this or that...."the bomb like tick tick. " WRONGO !!

2) Dont give out information. You may not have money to steal, but you got somtething else. An identity ! Identity theft gets worst and worst every year.

3) Be aware when they use BIG NAMES. Example above: FHM . Do you really think someone from FHM saw your profile on MYSPACE ? I dont think so.

4) Chances are if it sounds to good to be true, it probably isnt.

5) When ever in dounbt, just go to GOOGLE ! My best friend. Thats what i do. And sure enough other aspiring models have ran into your "JOHN DOE" !

Good luck out there!

CAN WE BRING THIS BACK...PLEASE ?



Gone are the days when SUPER models just looked like SUPER real women.

Just as beautiful as todays fashion models, but curvy and sexy; like a natural, real, woman who takes cares of herself.

Since when was it ok to put flat-chested, young-boyish figured, teenage girls as our epitome of beauty in fashion ?

I almost forgot how supermodels use to look.

Will it ever change and go back to the way things use to be ?

Or will we continue to be obessed with youth and "thinspiration" ?

I posted this after i saw fashion blogger @bryanboy tweet this photo on twitter.

Just got me to thinking.

ROCK STAR 101



is she not my biotch or wut?

Monday, July 12, 2010

dont it mean i love you?



Finally, i been waitn fo this video for what seemed like a year!

OLDER MODELS ROCK TOO !!

[I was watching Fashion Tv, as usual.]

During fashion week Michael Kors talked a little bit about the industry:

"These are adults clothes, you know, fashion is so obesessed with the idea of youth, youth, youth, youth, youth; and i dont know alot of 15 year olds who buy fabulous designer clothes, and handbags, and shoes. Maybe you know on a television show, they do, in fantasy world. And i think that to see a sexy adult, a secure glamourous man and women on the runway is fantastic...


Well put MK!

Aaliyah said it best!

Age aint nothing but a number.

WILL WE DIE STUPID ??



BELOW ARE TWEETS FROM MY TWITTER, BLOWING OFF STEAM AFTER READING GOAPELE'S BLOG [HER LINK BELOW] ---->

i dont think we care enough, about each other..

our community is th only community that does not stick together..

look at jews in bk, look at arabs in alb

we do not stick together, we are in america ["now" our home] and yet other ppl frm different countries can come here and still rise above us

every other race looks down at us, we look down on each other, we still segregate amongt ourselves, who's light skin? who's darksin? who's

mixed? who's better than who ?

& while we are doin that the whole world is lafin at us..

we care about who has the best car in th hood...how many of us own houses ?

th world is huge, and we dont own a piece of it

america was build on our backs, we dont fight for our "40 acres & a mule" ??

we settle, we are content, we focus on th now for ourselves..we are selfish. wut do we have to give to th next generation? wut about th next

generation in your family? what can you give them ? what can you put in your will ?

where's our companies ? look at our neighborhoods . . nothing is run by us.....do you know we are exploited by every other race ?

do you know almost all beauty products target the black community ??

relaxers, bleaching cream, weaves,

these beauty stores are ran by ppl who are taught how to target the black community..what we are insecure about in ourselves, what they

can sell to us..they get rich off of us !! off of our nickel and dime, and everyone #banks but us

its disgusting, in fact its retarted...we go off and fight in wars just like everybdy else..we pay taxes just like everybody else, we

consume just as much, and if not more as anybody else, and we are not respected..

#fashionindustry we buy just as well as anybody else, yet there's only a one black girl they'll put on th runway at a time..

dont want to frighten th crowd with your blackness do we ?

can take too much of it as once..smh

we are goin to need more than a black president to change things around..everybody needs to help, or we just going to continue to get played

and in which case these tweets dont mean anything, you probabl wont even read them, ill go about my day, ull go about yours and 2maro

this will be the last thing from our minds, until it happens again, when we whine for a lil while, and cry for just a lil while, and the

cycle continues..

excuse my babblin...i just speakn frm th heart..im not powerful, but wen i have something, or own something, im going to try to change smthn

even if it starts with a retweet.. #OSCARGRANT

[IN LOVING MEMORY]

**it seems as though we can never win, and if we do not come together and be for real, then we might just never**

I needed to grab some shoes right before i left for Paris for go-sees, and these caught my eye. Some of my sisters don't like them. I thought they were cool.

Anyway BAKERS is trying to step it up.

WHY DONT YOU LOVE ME ?



BEY OR BEE, SHE DOES IT AGAIN! WHY WOULDN'T YOU LOVE HER AS AN ARTIST? SHE'S INSPIRED AND INSPIRES. TAKING OLD [FLAVOR], AND MAKING HER OWN.

WELL, I CANT GET ENUF OF THAT [HONEY] "BEY". YOU ALWAYS OUT-DO YOURSELF AND OF COURSE OTHERS.
