This clearly has nothing to do with beauty or relationships, but I have to share my excitement for Queen B giving birth to her twins!!
Beyoncé had her twins! I feel like I gave birth with her, I am so serious about this lol! I was telling my dad on Sunday that we had to go celebrate for her, but he didn’t understand, he let the Bey-hive down. But here’s a throwback to the day that my sister and I found out she was pregnant.
I don’t know if it’s been obvious or not, buuuut I’m going through a breakup. Yes going through because that’s what happens, you go through the emotions; the pain, hurt and anger – all of it. I saw a post on Kourtney Kardashian’s blog that inspired me to share my breakup playlist.
Word of caution: After listening to these songs, you may experience inexplicable bouts of anger at numerous times during the day, you may picture hurting your ex and you may just happen to express your anger to complete strangers on the subway (not that I’ve done this of course). So, if it were up to me, we would just listen to kumbaya all day long, but let’s be real, we need at least a full day to experience and release all of our emotions. I just didn’t want to be responsible for anything that may follow if you chose to listen to this playlist. Now to the songs!
Logically, I Don’t Need a Man by The Pussycat Dolls is the first song you should listen to. I mean, the title says it all.
And of course because you want to stay angry for a little while longer, you’ve got to listen to Hold Up by Beyoncé.
Because you now want to be sad, gotta listen to Crazy by K-Ci & JoJo.
Now we can’t let this arrogant sucker think he’s that ‘ish, gotta let him know that he can’t go around thinking he’s Irreplaceable like Beyoncé says.
Not only is he not irreplaceable, but he needs to remember you were the one who upgraded him. Uh huh, let him know. Naturally the next song is Upgrade U by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z.
Now that you’ve gotten all the anger and sadness out of your system, it’s time to start to feel good about yourself again. The next song is Miss Independent by Ne-Yo.
I’m talking about Destiny’s Child type of Independent Women.
Feeling good and on an independent women high, you then remember that everything is going to be okay because we Run the World (Girls) – Beyoncé.
Not only do we run the world, but Flawless too, c’mon now Beyoncé and Nicki, tell ’em.
And when all is said and done, you’ve always been a Diva – Beyoncé, and divas can only attract kings, watchu gonna say about that.
Aaaaand, that’s a wrap! Stay fabulous.
When I walk in the room
I see their stares
I hear the whispers
And, rather than keeping it to themselves
They think, let me just tell her what I think of her body, her lips and her nose real quick
Who would I be if I didn’t help a sister out?
You’re so close to being caramel, they say
Chocolate is good, but a caramel latte is always better
You can stand to be a couple of shades lighter
Here you go, a bottle of skin lightener
Don’t lick your lips, they’ll only get bigger
Oh! They never told you?
Girl, I just saved you
Wait a minute,
You’re thinking of wearing a skirt? Girl, don’t bother
Never seen legs so thin and so discoloured
Your mama never told you not to kneel?
I just keep saving you
You’re so thin
Haven’t you eaten in a while?
Here’s a burger, feed yourself
Haven’t you heard without hips you won’t carry a child?
Yeah you got booty, but it could be bigger
Much bigger, like the size of the scars all over your body
How’d you get all of those scars anyway?
It seems so hard being you
Day and night having to cover up all of who you are
Girl, I couldn’t do it, but you do you boo
Try changing and while you do, just keep your head high
I can only imagine the pain that comes from being you
I’m beautiful, just not in your eyes
My beauty comes from my strength and knowing God is alive
My Maker, whose son died at the cross for me
Knows every hair on my head
Tells me I’m beautiful constantly
And, that’s why I smile, even if the sight of my gap makes you uncomfortable
Even if the sight of my gap takes the little beauty I have away
You’re beautiful, until you smile they say
That’s nice and all, but I got a gap and I ain’t closing it up
But don’t you forget your nose
It’s too big, it’s too wide, it doesn’t fit, it’s too much
Don’t worry girl, you know I got you, there’s options now, just look at mine
I know a doctor, and it won’t cost too much
I promise, just look at me, I swear this won’t cost you much
But I’m free from your opinions
I’ve been free
Loving myself flaws and all
Loving myself dark skin, big nose, big lips and all
I know it’s too much for you to fathom
Too much for you to understand
But I walk like this, scarred legs, sitting tall
I strut like this loving me flaws and all
Free from them and their opinions
And who are they?
The ones who point
The ones who stare, the ones who laugh
Who are they who think they have a say?
Strangers, lovers, foes and friends
But I can’t do nothing but be myself
Can’t do better than being myself
I love my big ego, such a big ego
I have every reason to feel like I’m that chick
