Last night I was in a trance watching the newest cast member of Love and Hip Hop berate and instigate a fight with Kimbella. Erica, a Hip-Hop model was extremely upset with Kimbella and all of the “Video Whores”. According to Erica, Kimbella and her ilk have ruined the industry for “real Hip-Hop models”. Apparently there are levels of Hip Hop Modeling; who knew? Crickets were chirping in the background as I side-eyed the television.
They fussed back and forth about sex, baby daddies, and all their private business before the first glass was thrown. These pretty girls in stilettos, designer dresses, faces full of makeup, and perfectly coiffed hair were throwing blows like grown men. While watching this train wreck all I could think was, “You all are too pretty to behave like this!”
Pretty Girls are well behaved, classy, delicate, and elegant. These women should be enjoying the “fabulous” life. You would think wealth and opportunity would bring about a sense of appreciation and pride. Their new found celebrity should be used as stepping stones for career advancement and a better life. Instead these pretty girls choose to behave like Ratchets: rude, simple, tacky, and unattractive.
At 30-year’s old, I can look at these girls and shake my head, because it’s merely something to laugh and talk about with my friends. I wonder what the 13-year-olds are thinking while watching these shows? Do they think these girls are pretty cool? Do they throw their plastic cups with clinched fists in the cafe during lunch while screaming obscenities? In my day, girls were “too pretty” to throw bows. We were not going to mess up our faces, clothes, or lives because of foolishness.
This evening World Hip-Hop released a 46 second video of Erica attacking her child’s father, Raul of the Terror Squad. As I watched yet another train wreck all I could think was:
“When did acting like a BRUTE become CUTE?”
