Ugly is the New Pretty

Scenario #1 Fellas: A fly-ass Jessica Alba look-alike walks by you, her neck smelling sweeter than a plate of yams (with exxxtra syrup). U dig deep for ur best one-liner but just as ur about to holler, u see her walk into the arms of a dude who u define as a short, ugly, Smigel from Lord of the Rings lookalike. And u think to urself, “Damn, he must be rich.”


I know all that up there sounds mad shallow, but it’s the truth for most people and happens far more frequently than u think. Shit, I’ve lost count myself. No matter who the ugly in the relationship is, we’re always left wondering, How in the world did this not so likely couple get together and fall in love?” As a reflex, most conclude it’s because; he must be really nice (ugly guy/hot girl), or he’s doing a charity case (hot guy.ugly girl), or he must have a big dick (ugly guy/hot girl), or she must he a gold digger (hot guy/ugly girl). But I’m not talking about a fake relationship, I’m talking about love.

Many assume, and many stereotype. But I think know the real answer.

Men, want to feel like men. And I’m not talkin about some broad who lives to iron and cook and clean for her man that never opposes to giving head (although I’m sure that is also ideal). But I’m talkin ’bout a female who holds him the fuck down and stands by her man through the fire, rain, snow, Typhoon Ketsana, whores, weight gains, jail, injuries, unemployment, etc. It doesn’t have to get as complex as that, but u get the point. Men feel like men when they got a ride or die woman by their side. Don’t believe me? Ask T.I.


Because no matter what we think of him, him, or her. It doesn’t matter. What matters is they find each other incredibly beautiful and ridiculously sexy one way or another.

In Crown Me, Cam’ron once said “she ain’t all that, if a car, I say Suzuki, Civic.” But what his purple laffy-taffy Range Rover ass ain’t knowin is, Civics are awesome cars. They may not have all those unnecessary bells and whistles, but they’re reliable, efficient, and most of all – they last long.

Don't tell me not to feel lonely. You don't know what lonely is. I've spent many moons dancing by myself, and solo sunsets staring into my own eyes. Yet, I'm still here scratching and clawing and flou

Love is never enough. Remember when they lied and told us it was? They even made songs about it. But what if we do have more than love? What if we have sweet and sour watermelon kisses in the grass un

It's my Friday morning ritual. This routine is healthy. It's peaceful, it's comforting. I unroll my mat by the door, because it gets hot. But mostly, I don't trust people. I put my phone on DND, and p
