Re: The Way It Is

And now, a special request from Thelma Evans and "Florida (Evans) From the Grave."

Dear Keyshia Cole,

I've decided not to watch another episode of The Way It Is.

It's not because I don't sympathize with your childhood. It's not your Kool-Aid hair. It's not (exactly) your singing, although I never really liked hearing "Looooooooooooooooooooove" on urban radio.

I keep getting the words "she needs medication" in my head for some reason, although I'm convinced your doctor wouldn't give you Prozac if you asked for it. I think that's why I'm not watching The Way It Is anymore.

that has got to be the dumbest letter I've ever read! Keyshia Cole may sound a little different on her song "Love" on the radio but live she RIPS that shit! I'll support the show I am a huge fan the girl is a soulful singing sista, she's cool in my book. Ya'll want to hear some whining screaming ass Beyonce with her white sounding no soul having ass!

^After this last comment, no more comments on "how dumb this letter is."

Personally--and watch everyone get mad about this comment--I don't see how Keyshia Cole is the heir to Mary J's throne. Maybe it's just me, but I feel her vocals (on her studio records) are treated to the point where her voice doesn't sound natural (at times). I've always felt in the back of my mind that Fantasia was more soulful and more Mary-sounding than Keyshia, but that's just my opinion.

As for her show? Seriously, I'm bored with it, and yeah, I'm still watching DMX, because despite his craziness, he's starting to tug my heartstrings.

Penny Woods said...

Oh, yeah, I hate Beyonce too. You're not alone. "Deja Vu" is horrible.

Just Mz Nikki said...

Sorry ya'll but pennywoods is right. Keyshia strikes me as ery disturbed by the things that have gone on in her life, and speaking as someone who works in mental health, she needs to get herself some help.

Don't like BeNONce either, but that's a whole other story!

Penny,

I agree with you. Why is it that for some reason everyone thinks that this Cole chick is the best vocal yet? Did you hear Puffy say on the last episode that she was one of the best vocal artist he ever worked with? What the HELL?

What happened to Mary? If I do recall Mary was always in the open about her life experience and how things went down with her. She is far, far better than this Cole chick!

And what makes it worse is that she acts as if other artist have not had their struggles to go thru. Like she the first to go thru it and talk about it. Well, she's not!She acts as if she is the first black person in America to see struggle and survive.We are glad you survived but you are not a one and a million case.

Puffy needs to stop blowing smoke up her butt. I cant stand that song Love either! And I can't stand Beyonce either.

Now, DMX is worth watching although I think for a grown man with all those kids and after being in jail for 40 days or so that he needs to speed more time at home instead of hanging out in the Arizona dessert or in some parking lot late at nite with a car club he's not even in. If you love your kids that much stay at home!
