Tid Bits

First off, Slumdog Millionaire is a great movie. It's been a while since I saw a movie that was so wonderfully written, authentic, and featured a great cast. There were no big name actors to carry this movie and instead of focusing on whoever the actors were I was able to lose myself in this story. Slumdog won 8 of the 10 Oscars it was nominated for and I can't think of a better movie, better cast, or director to have gotten picture of the year! If you have yet to see this cinematic gem please go and check it out. You'll love it.



Everyone has heard about the Chris Brown / Rihanna fiasco. In terms of what happened, I think that they're both really young, famous, have tons of money, huge egos and a ridiculously unrealistic life. I don't think that men should ever resort to laying their hands on a woman. point blank.

However, I have played the "psycho girlfriend" role before and went left on a man because of a text message, email, video, having dinner at midnight with someone and calling it a business meeting and my girls and I stumbling upon them in the same restaurant (starting a scene, throwing shoes, slapping him, throwing my purse...screaming...looking like a damn fool for real)....yes, I've been there before so I can completely understand how Rihanna could've turned from everyone's favorite umbrella toting island girl, to girl gone way past bad...borderline nut case. Whatever transpired between her and C Breezy is their business but it is unfortunate that their personal lives have to get played out in front of the glare of the Hollywood cameras.

Recently I was listening to a song off her "Good Girl Gone Bad" album called "Breakin Dishes". Now, I've heard this song many times before, sang along and everything... but I never really paid attention to what she's saying. When all this drama went down with her and Chris I decided to google the words and thought it was interesting. The chorus of the song: "Imma fight a man tonight"....

Is this art imitating life?



Lyrics:

I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am
I don't know who you think I am, am am am...

He been gone (down) since three thirty
And coming home lately at three thirty
I'm super cool, I've been a fool
But now I'm hot and baby you gone get it

Now I ain't tripping ah, I ain't twisting ah
I ain't demented ah! well just a lil bit, ah
I'm kicking asses, I'm taking names
I'm on flame don't come home babe

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Oh-oh)
I ain't go stop until I see police lights (Oh-oh)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

I'm still waiting, come through the door
I am killing time, you know bleaching your clothes
I am roasting marshmallows on the fire
And what I am burning is your attire

I am getting restless
I am getting testy
And I can't believe he's always out every night and never checks in
Is he cheating? Man I don't know
I am looking around for something else to throw

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Uh-huh)
I ain't go stop until I see police lights (Uh-huh)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

Oh...

I don't know who you think I am (I am...)
(I don't know who you think I am)
But I really don't give a damn right now
If you don't come I am going to huff and puff until
I am going to blow this blow this hole
I am going to blow this blow this hole
I am going to blow this house house down!
Dishes! breaking! dishes! breaking! dishes!

I'm breaking dishes up in here
All night (Uh-huh)
I ain't go stop until I see police lights (Uh-huh)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man (tonight)
I'm a fight a man
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an
A man, a man, a ma-a-a-an

Breaking, breaking, breaking
Dishes, dishes, dishes
Breaking, breaking, breaking
Dishes, dishes, dishes
Breaking, breaking, breaking
Dishes, dishes, dishes
Breaking, breaking, breaking
Dishes, dishes, dishes
