They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
So what the *beep* is this saying?
Would it have been too much to ask for her to put on some black lollipops?! My homeboy thought she was wearing a thong and he was seeing actual butt cheeks! I know Janet, it ain't fair-where's the FCC now?
I know that the Williams sisters are beasts in the world of female tennis. And many folks think that when they run things, they can do whatever they like. But there are still rules, limits and small things like self respect that should be considered. And the fact that when you are in the public eye, you become role models to the childrens. Whether you want that role in the lives of the impressionable youth becomes a moot point because thats the cost of celebrity.
There ain't nothing beautiful about this shot Ve Ve!
I wondered as I wandered if she was about to drop an album and this was just a publicity stunt to get me to go out an cop her new record. But no, she's not vying to be the next Lil Kim. So then I thought, making a statement aside, that Ms. Williams wanted to compete with Serena for the Ms. Butterface award. I think it is common knowledge that shortly after Halle, Serena appears on black men's WILF lists largely because of her A$$ests-both physical and monetary.
But what do I know? I don't have a thousand words left to say about this, but maybe do you. Am I just a prude hating on her freedom of expression? Or do you also agree that this was a statement that was lost in translation?
See You In Seven
