just so we’re clear…..
I am not your next pop star.
Never wanted to be.
Never want to be.
I am not an entertainer .
I am an inspirer.
I don’t sing songs to entertain and distract.
I write songs to inspire,
to bring awareness to…..
and if I’m lucky,
I don’t want to be a tv or movie star.
The closest thing in acting I’ve ever wanted to do is stage plays of the non musical sort
I am not your next “triple threat”
I am not your next Beyonce,
I am not your next Aaliyah…..
I am not Cassie’s competition
nor am i Rihannah’s.
I don’t want to make the world dance,
I want to help the world think,
and be true to it’s essence.
I am not your next radio friendly…..
I don’t know what your idea of making it is,
but today I surprised my daughter with her very own room.
I successfully put a roof over me and my soon to be 3 year olds head……
I made that happen.
I made it .
I do not want to be your next pop star
I am not your next pop star
I have a pudgy little nose that I never plan on “fixing” ,
a cup full of butt
tiny tits from breast feeding a child for the full year that nature suggested
( in which, btw…
I never plan on filling back up with any other material other than breast milk)
I am not your next perfectly plump,
5 foot 7
I am 5 foot 2
And I am not your next popstar.
I am not dedicated to being #1,
the highest paid,
or the most sexually sought after….
I am dedicated to providing for my daughter,
and the world to the best of my ability.
I am dedicated to being happy,
and being myself.
I don’t need to be rich…..
Never have been,
never wanted to be
and probably never will be
because a person who is truly rich in spirit,
sees no purpose in the excess of anything….
I’d rather give a million people one dollar
than to boast that I myself,
am a millionaire.
I will sing about who I am ,
what I do,
and what I think.
Sometimes it will be similar to your favorite popstar…..
sometimes it will be similar to your favorite politician,
sometimes it will be similar to a respected philosopher
or an unknown astronomer…..
But do not call me these things.
I am just a me ,
as you are
just a you.
PSA to anyone expecting me to be the next of any thing…..
I am the very first ,
and the very last
I am NOT
your next pop star.
