MY Bee/ Keeping it locked up/ Rant!


My beautiful stylish Talented Bee..

Okay as an INTENSE, FEVERISH and very DEDICATED B'STAN, i cant help but be constantly injured by Hurtful, hurtful words her "unadmirers" constantly toss at her.


I personally try not to cram her down anyone's throat - This is our blog, yet despite the overwhelming love we have for her, we never speak about her here, maybe ONce or twice but really thats about it.

I dont speak about her to people who obviously dont care much for her and i dont force anyone around me to listen/watch/ or do anything pertaining to beyonce ...i could...but i really dont...BECAUSE i am respectful of people's opinions, likes and dislikes...at the end of the day, what matters to me most is my being UNAWARE of the negative comments...yet...i constantly get bombarded by them just because i am a fan..for some reason i am the "GO TO person for beyonce haters....i mean there i am just minding my own daggone business when someone sends me a msg "Oh. beyonce is such a fake bitch, oooo she is so fat, ooohh she lips synchs...i am like ??????....and there is the CONSTANT effort of People asking me, time and time again why i like beyonce and TRYING their best to UNFAN me.....Am i not ALLOWED to love her!...is it UNPOPULAR to like beyonce?..I really dont know how she ended up the enemy of all, when she is very Talented, HARDworking, dedicated, BEAUTIFUL and an all round A!....

I personally dont care much for Alicia keys or Mary J blige but i still respect their HUSTLE, i still listen to their music and i still admire their efforts...but i just do not get the GENERAL OVERWHELMING DISLIKE of my sweet BEE..did i miss out on the controversy she wrought on the general public..i mean daggone it!!.....

Granted Bee was everywhere this past year with endorsements, appearances at events, Performances...whatever...i think its very stupid of people to get irritated because she is endorsing so many things, What the hell is the essence of the music business, If its not to entertain (which she loves to do but people still complain) and to make profit (which is what she is doing with all her endorsements but people still complain)... she doesnt beg for the endorsements, they are offered to her!...Beyonce was the second woman on the list of forbes top 10 african american millionares and i aint mad at that....you have to hustle while you can...would you turn down the chance to make money??.....All good things things eventually come to an end, why not squeeze the hell out of it before that time comes..??...while she is still at the top.... nothing lasts forever ergo Lauryn hill(who i still have my fingers crossed for)..why not make millions why you can..makes no damn sense...

And the whole Lacefront ish...i find it really funnny because for the last 2 yrs i have been wearing braids in my hair and now i just took it all off and i am now rocking my hair and i have no intention of relaxing my hair until 6 mnths from now, so i need "something" i could wear on my head that wouldnt damage my hair, when my hair eventually gets unmanageable (which i am crossing my fingers it wont since i am really conditioning the hell out of it) ...and frankly thats what a lace front does, it allows you to grow out your hair!!!.... its just so silly that pple call her out on weave when MOST if not all of the perpetrators have weave attached to their own damn scalps!!---Besides... calling beyonce "BEYAKI" is so rude....how intelligent you must feel whilst doing so...In the entertainment industry everyone and their mama wears weave including caucasian women, why is she solely picked on???..even that rihanna's fab new haircut has tracks all up in that ish...its not humanly possible for her bangs to be long on monday and the short on wednesday and then long again on friday...hmmm..

Oh and the comparisons never end, can we Negros ever just get along???why must there only be ONE black woman doing it big, why cant alicia keys, ciara, beyonce, rihanna, et all not just exist all together without comparisons being drawn of who is the best at what...they are all in different genres of music....pick what you like and stop comparing...Beyonce is nothing like alicia keys, there is always that one person stressing that beyonce' music is too "poppy" and not deep like alicia's ...well good for you if you like alicia key's music...its just aight to me...personally i like Bee's music...why should we stop playing it just because YOU dont like it...how about you let her fans enjoy it without blessing us with your UNNEEDED and UNINVITED dirty opinions!

I know alot of blogs pick on beyonce, they put her picture up and insult her about her hair/body weight or something equally shallow all to generate rabid comments of "oh i am soo sick of her! and stuff.....if not for blogs we wouldnt know what she was up to, would we?....if everyone is so sick of her why not stop making posts about her, but they dont anyway because then they would lose their comments....


Personally as someone who has yet to Hate on anybody's hustle, people need to just practice turning down the vol when Beyonce is on tv or just looking over a post of her, thats what i do for several celebrities, there is no reason to be a pot of venom and just hate someone for the point of hating her.

In my opinion black women hating on other black women have given white bloggers the right to say disrespectful shit about Black people, i am on dlisted( i know he is asian) and he is going around calling Beyonce, Beyaki and things...??....are you serious??....and marykate and ashley whose Heads are CHOCKFULL of weave are said to have "extensions" in their hair...oh really?
....or even TMZ calling beyonce a Roboho...This is that disrespectful shit....as far as i am concerned, Bee minds her business, loves her family and is one of the best entertertainers out there ...she gives a 100% to her audience and for that i am truely appreciative, as someone who likes to do the same...i appreciate...i can tell a Bee hater a mile away and i personally dont care if you dont care much for beyonce, thats fine...but if you are someone who hates her enough to be in my face about it whilst i am trying to respect your right to dislike my sweet wonderful bee....we will definitely fight...and as always i will win. I am not going to lie my friendship is inversely proportional to how much you hate bee....if its too much, we really cant be friends.....lol....till today i am not sure if my BF likes or hates Bee, but i will never know...and thats what is important LOL...

I hope i didnt step on anyone's toes, and my intention is not to force anyone to like Beee, i am just AIRING out the anger in my heart after i someone left a stupid comment about Beyonce in my inbox...i am off to fight that person...for now...*WHOOOOSAaaaaaAA*


**********************************************************************************

And OH, on another note, My people (nigerians) are the most OPINIONATED people i have ever seen in my life! LOL, i mean it is in our BLOOD to feel like we Know better than everyone else, "No, no do it Like this!! dont do it like that" ....ah ah....i was just on *cough* facebook...lol..and someone just posted up his new music vid and i mean it was a really fun vid! and i just dont understand why some "people" felt the need to list out all the faults of the video and things...right there...for the whole world to see....??.....like "nice try but you need to work on blah blah blah"...i thought it was mad funny because that ish always happens, ESP in this fashion bizzzzzness i am constantly warned about shit i already know...

To an extent i understand the importance of constructive criticism but sometimes you can tell that people are just taking the piss and are just trying to be unnecessarily mean, stuff like that is not cool! there is a way that you can give criticism and the person being criticised feels ENCOURAGED, i know because i have felt that way...i have been motivated and encouraged and mistakes have been pointed out in a way that you feel like you can do better but when people just say shit in a way that makes you feel discouraged, i wonder just what their purpose is....I personally feel that everyone and their mama has an opinion and people need to just take note of the people whose opinions really matter! ....On one hand you will have those people that tell you that whatever you do is GREAT! when its really not....you need someone who has Knowledge on the subject at hand and is blunt enough to tell you it sucks and wise enough to give you pointers on how to correct your mistake, thats what i think....

Lol, i am the most OPINIONATED person out there....i personally think i can do it all...if i see someone fixing a car, i just know i have to give my own opinion on the subject lol....BUT due to past circumstances of my ass being cursed out by my older siblings i have learnt the HARD WAY to how to hold myself back!..nowadays i only give my precious opinion when asked.....or provoked lol...

When we first started this Blog we had a rash of destructive criticism, which is how the comments got moderated - There are lots of cool people who rock the blog like Elle woods (who is mad funny, ur blog is soo cool) and eny and zena and a lot of other familiar people who i can tell like our product and who i know (or i think i know) would Constructively give us their opinion on cranberry when asked because they actually like what we do and are not anonymously saying whatever the hell they want and bouncing leaving only irritation and confusion like "what did we do to that stranger???"....so thanks YALLLL!! ..We are sketching and putting together the looks for our next collection and hmm..and i am soo excited....cross your fingers for us and damn THIS IS A LONG ASS BLOG! lol.

LMAO!!! ok, i have to admit, I AM one of those beyonce haters....I used to adore her when her first solo album came out, then all of a sudden it was WAYYYYYY too much Beyonce. And refering to the blogs saying shit about her, I think they trash everyone possible, it's all fun and games.

Also, on Nigerians having a lot of opinions about everything, i think everyone is like that, some people just use their comments to HATE.

I love what you guys do, and although it's not my exactly my style(i have a more "don't notice me style" LOL), you guys are an absolute breath of fresh air and you guys stand out. I can really see Cranberry showing in Bryant Park and i'm not kissing y'all asses...just good stuff.

So yea, ignore the hater's comments and take the constructive criticisms.

That was much longer than I intended.

Much love

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

People will always disagree on artists etc but i think we can do it in a respectful way,it doesnt have to get personal.
On the bit about Nigerian's being opinionated,im Ghanaian and trust we have the same issue honey!
As a fashion stylist and a lover of all things vintage inspired,I LOVE CRANBERRY. I've followed your brand rise and i think its a label for the confident fashionista,you know the one not afraid to stand out to be different.For those who aint that and who possibly dont fully understand fashion or the statement CRANBERRY's trying to make aint folk you need wearing your brand anyway.If Heatherette,Pat Fields etc had not repped what they loved,reckon they be s revolutionary today? I bet folk had a hella lot to say about them when they began their respecive brands and styling.Look at them today.I get loads of anonymous disses ALL DAY ever daY in ref to my personal style but ive FINALLY figured that i must be doing something right ;-),who wants to be another clone anyways?!So CRANBERRY keep being CRANBERRY!we've already got all the armani's,prada's and Gucci the world could handle!For those who disagree...they just dont know! ;-)

Zena said...

Nigerians, Africans in general will always give an opinion whether u ask for it or not, we just have to ignore it.

lol from the post, I was figuring it was either Doreen or Joan that posted.
