I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.
Follow my butt on Twitter!
I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
I tried watching Girls the other day. It was so bad I didn’t last 15 minutes into the program.
I have literally watched more hours of Nick Cage’s “acting,” than I ever will of this over-inflated, unfunny, bland, Wonder Bread in The City, annoying, deplorable show.
We can all do better.
A little over a year ago, I decided to stop blogging about Sarah Palin.
I figured that the less I wrote about her, the less relevant she would become. I don’t know how well that worked out for the rest of the world, but it worked out pretty well for me.
I am still surprised when I discover people who are still talking about her.
(I did the same for Julia Allison!! Look at how well that worked out!!)
This is something I tend to do to ignorant ass people in real life. I stop talking about them, stop talking to them, and just generally refuse to acknowledge their existence.
I’ve got a new Sarah Palin, y’all, and their names are Lena Dunham and Lesley Arfin. These little children have proven that they are merely posing as respectable women, when we have clearly recognized that they are walking colostomy bags. In fact, these two period clots aren’t even worthy of me repeating their names in this post.
Their selfish, ignorant, unapologetic white-supremacist behavior is not worthy of my time or effort beyond this post.
These basic, ignorant girls who are drowning in the shallow end their own white privilege shall henceforth be given no airtime on awesome-everyday.
The title of the show is Girls.
We women of color are girls, or have been at some point.
We do not see a girl or woman who looks like us in the very white ads for this show.
So every time we see the title, “Girls,” which easily implies “All Girls,” or even, “All Girls in New York City,” and we’re not included, it’s like another shot in the fucking face like we don’t exist because we’re not white girls.
I used to HATE Beyonce!
But it wasn’t her fault, really. I loved Destiny’s Child just like every other girl my age. My hatred for Beyonce was a projection of the hate I had for her dad’s business practices instituted in Destiny’s Child. I thought it was unfair and complete and utter bullshit.
I didn’t think it was fair that they called themselves a group, yet it was always the Beyonce Show. Be “Beyonce & Destiny’s Child,” if you want to do it that way, not a group of sorta-equals. For real though, I was a teenager/young adult at the time.
Like everyone else with a pulse, I wasn’t suprised at all when Beyonce released her solo album… but fuck, it was good, man! As it turned out, she was an even better performer when it actually WAS the Beyonce Show.
As a performer, I now idolize Beyonce. She’s a great performer and damn that girl can SANG. I study her live videos and when I need to get in a good vocal workout, I sing her songs.
Of course, looking back at Mr Knowles’ decisions with Destiny’s Child, they make sense. The man is a genius. I’ve said time and time again that Beyonce Knowle$ is a brand. Probably probably one of the most successful and consistent brands of the 20th/21st centuries can be found in the smile of Beyonce Knowle$. She’s the most successful (living) non-latin based crossover-artist I can think of on the entire planet, male or female.
AND SHE IS A BLACK WOMAN! YEAH!
I can’t say that if I had a beautiful, shy daughter in THE most popular girl-group of all time, I wouldn’t force some major nepotisim. If you’re as nice a person as I truly assume Beyonce is, you’ve gotta have a semi-ruthless manager to get you past all the haters, racists and misogynists who will pull you down.
That’s why I really think this Run The World video is important. We do run the world, and Beyonce is proving it daily.
Get it gurl.
