Kelly's Racy Vibe Cover (Aug/Sept 2011)
So I’m pissed. Instead of “Here I Am,” the album should be called “Here’s My Vagina.” I feel that with this album, Kelly Rowland has skanked herself out; over-sexualizing her image and sound to sell records. On the deluxe edition, 5 out of 12 tracks are infused with sexual content. The lyrics aren’t explicit enough for the album to be slapped with a “parental advisory” label, but bold enough to where you can’t play them in front of a 12-year old. The rest of the album is basic R&B/Dance. Like any other K.Row fan, I’m ready for her to have her moment in the sun with platinum records and spectacular tours, but at what expense? I much rather see her never have a hit single again, than for her to rise to stardom with songs like “Motivation” and “Lay it On Me” and compromise her art. I’m debating on purchasing her album. On one hand, I want to contribute to her sales so that she won’t have another low-selling record. On the other hand, I don’t want to communicate to her or her record label that this material is acceptable. What do you guys think? Should I buy the album?

Seriously Beyonce`, WTH?!?
Most people figure out pretty quickly that I LOVE Beyonce`. She is my queen diva of choice. But every now and then, she does something that irritates or perplexes me. Here, I tell what's been buggin me about the Bee lately (with reviews and love for the Queen Bee in between).
