The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly (Week Of 4/13-4/19)

1. Mimi Faust-I had to get around to this simply because social media and the general populous won't let it go. So Mimi Faust (and Nikko Smith, a man we will get to in a moment) decides to release a sex tape through Vivid Entertainment, the same company that put Kim Kardashian's no talent ass in the public eye. I don't really know or care what the reasoning behind was. Maybe they wanted more fame or to promote Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. Whatever the case, I had a conversation with some friends last night that illuminated a few things. Here they are:

  • If you have a camera crew and a sound guy, it's no longer a sex tape. IT'S PORN! Let's stop calling it a sex tape and call a spade exactly what it is, folks.
  • She can NEVER tell her child where her college fund came from if she plans to use those funds for a noble purpose such as that...
  • Mimi has with one move made shower rod stocks go up. Home Depot or Lowe's should invest in her now while the iron is hot.
Jokes aside, I can see the hustle but I wish there was a way to hustle without getting naked, becoming a meme and being a trending topic. Wait, there is.

VERDICT: UGLY (for the porn), GOOD (for the hustle)

2. Nikko Smith-As a man, I have NO RESPECT for this man. Charlamagne Tha God made a good point this week. He said something to the effect of a man's role isn't to put his woman, his queen in a position where she can be disrespected or seen in a negative light. In that way he has failed. I know some would say some ignorant shit like, "That nigga getting money, though..." To that I say...maybe. But is all the money worth the infamy you have garnered for yourself and your woman? Personally speaking, I think not. It's just this type of sexualization of the modern Black woman that tends to negatively impact our [men's] relationships with them. Ponder on that.

VERDICT: BAD (for putting your woman out there like that), UGLY (for the violations to The Code)

3. Prince-A big win for Prince. Not only does he return to Warner Bros. eighteen years but he regains ownership of all of his catalog. As such he will be re-releasing Purple Rain as a remastered deluxe edition just in time for the 30th anniversary of the classic album. He will also be releasing some other planned projects in the near future.  Nice!


4. Pharrell-I gotta thank the Book Of Faces (Facebook for the uninitiated) and one of my friends for this one. I really don't want to jade the issue with my thoughts. So here's the link: Pharrell interview with Oprah.

VERDICT: Your verdict here... 

5. Baseball-You know, I was having a tough time on trying to figure out how to end this edition of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly. I scrounged the Internet and saw a lot about Real Housewives and Love & Hip-Hop. I figured I dedicated 40% of this list to that so I decided against it. Then I saw all the baseball news. Apparently there are some major contracts being made, signed, and offered. If only I were more interested in baseball. Sigh...
