I may be a little late in talking about this but the news about Christina Aguilera “Botching” the National Anthem is profound and yielded an immediate opinion and thought by me but at the same time deserved a bit of a yawn.
None-the-less, the topic has been on my mind and there a few things that need to be shared about this and put out there.
My immediate opinion, thoughts, and feelings were
WHO GIVES A RIP??!!! and… GET OVER IT.
There are so many factors that can be going in to this National Anthem mess up it’s not even funny.
The first and most important thing to acknowledge is that she’s frickin’ human and stop being such Jackasses about the whole thing like you’re god (lower case intentional).
Do you sing? Do you speak in public? Don’t start saying that she’s a professional and that she should be used to it by now because you don’t know what may have happened to her 5 minutes before going out there. Maybe her little girl threw up and has a fever. Maybe through all of the hustle and bustle she heard someone in the stands say, “You’re a whore!” Would those things cause your mind to wander? I know they would mine.
I’m not even trying to make excuses for her, I’m just saying the truth. No one even knew she messed up until they told us later! You can tell by the tears (not cheers but tears) and applaud.
The second BIG thing to be thinking about is do YOU know the National Anthem? A poll said that 75% of Americans were pissed at what happened.
I bet 70% of those Americans don’t even know the National Anthem and if they happen to know it I bet they can’t sing worth anything and to put those two items together in the same room is already a feat.
NEXT… Why does that song mean ANYTHING to YOU?? Do YOU know its
history or are you just following 90% of the rest of the people that have no reason for their anger except that everyone else is angry and you’re supposed to be angry? If you DO happen to know the history and you love this country, WHY do you love this country?? I know my thoughts and reasons, about 9 other people I know also have their reasons, but what about you? Don’t give me the same ol’ CRAP of, “Because it’s a great country.” Are you 3 years old? Do you have a real answer yet? Take your time but DO give a real answer. “Because it’s the greatest country in the world” is also NOT an answer. 90% of the people who say that have NEVER even visited anywhere outside of the U.S., much less, LIVED outside of the U.S. so you have nothing to compare it to and any attempt at that being an “educated” answer is out of the window.
Now listen, I appreciate people appreciating and being happy with what they have but not at the expense of other people’s happiness and making other people feel like trash.
Remember. Just because someone else is making fun of someone doesn’t mean you should jump in and bully too.
Remember #2 Just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t make them any less human.
It seems that there are a lot of “lady topics” coming up lately, huh? Well, I AM married and those topics are relevant topics to talk about as well.
So America’s Next Top Model was being watched in my home. -Ok, fine. I was watching it one lovely morning while eating breakfast with my wife-and there are two things that bothered the freak out of me.
Thing #1: There is a Modern Orthodox Jewish girl on the show and there is a conflict
Thing #2: There is a girl on the show with issues about cutting her hair.
Ok, so there always seems to be a girl on the show that has issues with cutting her hair. Here’s my issue though. I understand that she chose to be there and that that is what happens and that’s what the “industry demands” blah blah blah.
Isn’t there a song by some girl singing about, “Blah blah blah?” She was singing about this.
These girls are slaves of the industry and Tyra Banks and everyone else is looking at them as if they’re the idiots because they don’t conform to the ways of the industry.
How about this ladies, look at THEM like they’re the idiots the next time they ask you to do something that you don’t feel comfortable doing.
Here’s the thing.
Oh, by the way, this is the same thing that drove me crazy with the Orthodox Jewish girl. It’s her own decision but here is my point. They asked her if she observed the Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath day), which is from Friday night to Saturday night. She said, yes. They then told her that these models work every day, is that a problem? She then said that she could do that.
Ladies, gents, anyone in the industry. YOU make the industry, don’t let it make you. Don’t just let them slap you around and make you feel like an idiot because you want to be you. I understand that part where you play the game until you’re “big enough” to change the game but if you aren’t who you are now you’ll find yourself being a slave and complacent by the time you are big enough. Take a look at Tyler Perry. He created his own way of doing things from the start because the system just wasn’t for him.
This post is for everyone in the acting, modeling, and entertainment industry. I’m telling you to be you and to not be ashamed about it and don’t apologize. Someone can say, “yeah well, where did that get you?” I’d respond with I’m producing my own magic with two separate companies and working on this one as we speak. The big part of this process is figuring out what I want and what I feel like I can do without getting bored.
I’m also working on a $70 Million dollar film script that is going to be one of the masterpieces of my life, if G-d blesses.
So. If you need some support or you want to tell me your story please leave your message below. This is a big problem and is causing a lot of people to hate themselves later on because it just doesn’t work out the way you thought it would. One of the girls on the show got sent home after getting her hair cut off. Her point was that she went through all of that pain and then went home.
It’s a growing experience for her but…
So… Pamela is making magic right here in Dallas, TX. It’s all over the radio and all over the internet and check it out, all over the blogs.
For some reason I felt like commenting on this. At this point I don’t have a clue why.
But what first hit my mind is that it’s a great networking possibility and I found an awesome little ticket discount on Groupon for it!
Pamela Anderson discount Groupon ticket??? Wild. Pretty funny at the same time. Don’t know quite what to think of it. It could be a night of fun and meeting some quality people or it could be a night of a complete waste of time and money where you don’t remember what happened the night before. As I think this through I have a feeling there may be more time wasted than anything but if you’re a brave soul and think you can get a business connection or ROI on this one then be my guest. As for me, I’m hangin’ tight right here at the crib, drinkin’ tea and takin’ it easy with my wife and boy. How ’bout them apples?
Here’s the link to the Groupon coupon. Not like I get a cut of this but another strange thing I just felt like doin’ for ya.
http://www.groupon.com/dallas/ 31 Folks already bought it at this point. Crazy. (but no talk on that one)
Welcome to Dallas, Pam =)
Interesting right? Whoduhthunkit?
(This is a little different than my regular posts and more of an announcement. I have this post on another site and decided it needed to be here too. Even though there is not much discussion this time, take a look, click on some links, and see what you can do. We’ll discuss later…)
Well, somebody did and apparently it’s a pretty big market here in the U.S. and now, hometown Dallas.
You don’t have to go to Vegas for Hookers and Prostitutes any more. You can get ’em right here.
That’s right. You remember the movie, “TAKEN”? Well get a whiff of this.
Girls are being kidnapped, bought, TAKEN, right now, as we speak and brought here to Dallas to be sold for the visitors and traffic coming to the Super Bowl XXI.
Are you frickin’ kidding me?
What can you do?
Say something about it. Click this link: http://soapsuperbowl2010.eventbrite.com/?ref=eivtefrnd Talk about it, blog about it, figure out what else you can do. This message goes out to a lot of people and someone knows someone else. Don’t be a wet noodle and just be in shock and bite your lip.
I’m watching “The Expendables” right now and one of the previews was the latest Rambo and he said, “LIVE FOR NOTHING. DIE FOR SOMETHING” Your choice.
I know people with little girls and I couldn’t even imagine something happening to one of those girls. If you’re a dad you can image just dying, G-d forbid, if that would happen.
I’m not calling for any Rambos and other stuff that the cops want to call, Mercernary Justice taking place, I’m just saying speak up and do what may be simple for some of you to do. FYI. The reason these laws are in place is to keep you shut up and doing nothing while they get paid by the kidnappers to keep their mouths shut. The cops win, govt wins, kidnappers win. Girls lose. Yeah. I know what you’re thinking. Hey. They get to have sex all day. I’m talking to guys out there and this is rough but try having a vagina and see how long that feels good to you. On top of that, they get beat by these weak men, abused by putting other things where they don’t belong, and psychologically messed up.
If you know of any groups or other ways that we can step up, contact us and let us know and we’ll keep making this something that can prevent something. If this helps 1 girl. That’s enough.
ps. Here’s that site again. Simple and effective way to help. Even by just clicking, “like” that’ll help spread the word. http://soapsuperbowl2010.eventbrite.com/?ref=eivtefrnd
