This is rude but…

…Christina Aguilera is a heinous, uncreative bitch obsessed with other brainless foofoos who only have pop vocal abilities…

I know, that was a harsh statement, but I have to say, I am a huge fan of Melanie Martinez on the Voice. Melanie is a sweet 17 year old girl from New York who is a highly creative and blatantly thoughtful individual. Her performances on the Voice indicate that she is a very talented and intellectual individual who may not “fit in” with other 17 year olds due to here half dyed head of hair, but I believe that these are the people who end up setting trends, leading nations and creating some of the best and most enjoyable things in life.

After Melanie’s December 3rd performance of “The Show”, Christina Aguilera, whom never gives Melanie nice comments, was full of a special form of a**hole. First off, instead of actually commenting on Melanie’s performances, Christina typically makes some stupid comment on how Melanie gets great props and gives kudos to the guy who does set design…ummm…HELLOOOOO CHRISTINA – THE NAME OF THE SHOW IS “THE VOICE” NOT “THE PROPS” or “THE SET DESIGN”. Secondly, since Christina never ever says anything nice to Melanie (who I think is already pretty harsh on herself), Melanie was clearly already prepared for some kind a-hole-ish comment from Christina and likely felt like her performance wasn’t super stellar (it wasn’t – I’ve seen her do better) and as she was awaiting Christina’s commentary her eyes started swell a little – she then turned her head and Christina starts mouthing off about how Melanie isn’t looking at her…Yeah, you dumb bitch – she’s not looking at you because your heinous, you’re terrible to look at and you are just plain MEAN!!! Just because Melanie doesn’t want hot pink streaks in her hair and most likely would not have liked “Genie in a Bottle” had it come out when she was 17, doesn’t mean that you have to be a “mean girl” to her.

The reason I am getting so heated and writing about this tonight is because I relate to Melanie. She has said on the show numerous times that she has often felt like an outsider…and I have been there too. In fact, I think that many women often feel like outsiders, often times because of other women – other dumb ass women like Christina. Sure, she knows how to put on a corset, spread her legs for managers and cameras alike and belt out a note or two, but I don’t think Christina has ever really thought about what it means to accept others for being who they are. Melanie has some real spunk and it should be embraced not be stomped on.

To all the Fat Girl friends out there and all the non Fat Girl friends, keep on being your weird ass, quirky selves because that’s the spice of life – that’s what makes the world go round – that’s what makes watching T.V. shows like the Voice different.

P.S. I quite literally got heated – this got me so upset, my whole body started to heat up – I am a weirdly passionate person…


“The Greatest Love of All”

For all you Whitney lovers out there, this one is for you! (Inspired by Trevin Hunte’s performance on Monday night.)

In the words of the late and the great woman, Whitney Houston, “Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all.” Trevin Hunte brought these words to life on Monday’s episode of the Voice, and he certainly deserves to move on to next week. I have a special affinity to this song as my mom played it over and over again on the way to school in the morning when I was a little girl. I loved (and still do) the song and Whitney so much. The song has an amazing message and I believe it is a song that all mommy’s should play for their little girls (and boys too) as it drives home the point that one needs to believe in one’s self and see “the beauty they possess inside”.

I find that the first step to living a healthy life, is loving, respecting and believing in yourself (I know it sounds cheesy, but I really do believe this). This concept is particularly important for all women managing their daily lives – there is just so much going on in our crazy world and women are doing more than ever before and society still expects them to look perfect. The pressure is astounding. But if you have a good image of yourself and believe you are beautiful inside and out, you can overcome all the trials and tribulations of the craziness that becomes life.

Congrats to Trevin Hunte for moving on to next week and a special thanks to him for bringing the song back to life and giving me inspiration for a post.

P.S. I performed that song on vacation in St. Lucia with my family when I was seven years old as part of a talent show. There were 250 people in the audience and I had (and still do have) a terrible voice! For all those poor folks that had to listen to me belt it out, I am sorry, but I believed in myself! Hahahaha!
