It's not often that we read about Janelle Monae or hear her her music on the radio. Why? Perhaps because she chooses to wear tuxedos as opposed to bikinis in her photoshoots. Or maybe because she's just too different. Whatever the case, I thought I'd do a brief write-up while I'm supposed to be hard at work. It seems like females must be naked with their behinds out to get a little recognition in this world. It's just sad. I don't mean to single out Ciara, but that "Ride" video is extremely sexual. And while her body is amazing, is all that necessary? What is she trying to accomplish? I'm not so sure that any musical talent exists in that video at all. Whatever,I'm just one person. What does my opinion matter? I just wanted to highlight the beauty that exists in artists like Janelle Monae and Algebra Blessett. This is beauty that is rarely ever seen because money is put into promoting sexual, depthless projects. It's just sad.
Now the reason I decided to title this post "Naturally Beautiful" is because of the hairstyles that these ladies choose to rock. I've yet to see Janelle or Algebra sporting a lacefront wig or looking superficial. These women are the epitome of genuine in my opinion. I like that. I choose to wear my hair natural as well. Be on the lookout for a natural hair care post in the near future. Don't get me wrong, I'll wear a weave in an effort to maintain my natual hair with no problem. There's nothing wrong with weaves or wigs, but the problem is with how fake you have to look to be "cute" these days. The problem is how people find it hard to see the beauty in their natural hair textures so they spend time and money damaging it. It amazes me. I'm rambling. I love this topic. What are your thoughts though? Am I crazy or to natural-haired beauties get no love in the music industry? And is it just me or do people with natural hair tend to make better music? LoL.
Anyway, if you'd like to find more information about these women feel free to click either of the links below:
