Why we Make Dumb People Famous…

In the middle of meetings and other important tasks that filled my day, I caught wind of some Twitter beef between a few popular rappers and media personalities. I can’t say I read enough of the tweets to know what happened but I have a few observations.

We make really dumb people famous. I was trying put my finger on why and it occurred to me that smart people are far too complex to be discussed through the lens of isolated  social media posts. Think about it. It only takes one quote from Donald Trump, Stacey Dash, Raven Symone, etc. to sum up their depth. They aren’t scholars or celebrated thinkers. They’ve not written any books worth reading and probably haven’t read any either.

we choose to make heros and persons of influence out of people who don’t make us think too hard in order to understand them. Even intellectually savvy artists are forced to dumb down their work to be accepted by popular culture.

so… Here’s my challenge to whoever is still reading.nstudy someone complex. Invest some time in an intellectual you respect. Read them. Watch them. Emulate if you want. But, let’s stop promoting ignorant people more than we promote brilliancy.

[Video] Wendy goes hard on Wiz Khalifa

Head over to the 5:00 minute mark if you have already heard Tamar Braxton sing Love and War. It was shaky. (But I’m happy for her)

Did Wendy Williams overdo it with Mr. Wiz Khalifa on her show. It seemed like she was making some judgement about his life based on his desire to smoke weed. On the other end, it’s ironic that this man notes that he’s a professional but showed up to work smelling like marijuana. I think Wendy was a little taken aback by that. I also didn’t understand why he said that Amber would be popping at anytime but that they would be married before she popped. So, like today?

Amber Rose COvers KING Magazine, Compares Kanye with Wiz Khalifa

“The thing of it is…how can I say this without sounding crazy or mean? I’m sorry. There’s no comparison in personalities. You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that’s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.”

Consider the source. Kanye put you on the map, Amber. There would be no King Magazine cover. If he was that bad and you were with him for that long, what does that say about you? Maybe you don’t know how to pick them! Whatever the case, don’t forget who “mapped” you!

Cassie Out & About with Diddy’s Mom but….

I know every other blogger is posting about how it’s cool and fuzzy that Cassie and Diddy’s mom had a little shopping excursion, but I posted this picture for another. Don’t laugh but…

You know how when you were in high school, you were so excited to have those new shoes that you wore them with ANYTHING? Cassie is rocking her Louboutins even though it appears nothing else matches.

Oh, and how tall is Diddy’s mom. wait, never mind. The Louboutin’s again.
