“I kinda had to forge my own path, make my own rules.”
I love, love this speech. Especially her being told she’s doing too much, that she should do only one thing. Me in a nutshell. She has passion for many things. As so do I 😬 Hence why my blog isn’t focused on just one topic. I have lots love for multiple things. I find it difficult to just choose one.
It’s true. When you have too many things going on you can never get really great at one thing. But look at her 🤷I have a pretty good idea how she did it. I think she tackled one thing at a time. Once she got good at one thing, she added the next.
Dancer – Fly girls…boom!
Acting – Selena…boom!
Singing – On the 6…boom!
So many booms LOL
She kept adding. American Idol, book, fashion, perfume, a Vegas show…OMG, also a mom.
I’ve watched her transform from the bottom to higher heights to even higher ones since I was 14. The woman is amazing and dedicated AF. There is no half-assing. It’s impossible to be where she’s at if she did.
Now…how can I get there? I’m not trying to reach her statue. I’d just like to be about 40% of her 😆 Brave enough to pursue my passions with conviction. There is too much contemplation with me 🤦
When we look around at our life and we’re not as happy as we want to be, that is a choice. We choose everything that we are allowing to go on in our life.
The fact that I’m not exactly where I want to be is because I haven’t worked on my endeavors hard enough. That’s me being honest with myself. It’s true, we have to put in effort (blood, sweat, tears) when it comes to the things we want. Too bad I can’t be a famous writer or speaker overnight 😒 lame LOL
My feed has been filled with Nicki blaming Travis Scott, Kylie Kardashian and Spotify as to why her album isn’t #1 🤦
Nicki, your album is great. I know you want to be on top. Unfortunately, you don’t always win. How many Grammy’s has Beyoncé won? My point exactly.
We strive to be the best. But when we lose, we should walk away gracefully. Hate is such a turnoff. I suppose some like it. Haters themselves maybe? I love her as an artist. As a person, I don’t know her behind the facade 🙄
It’s not easy for a woman to be super successful in the rap world. Why the drama? Remember the Iggy issue? 🤦 BUT… this is the classic case of seeking attention for sales. A tactic to stay relevant.
Back to the album. It is GREAT. One of my favorites so far. There wasn’t so much pop this time around. Which is nice because she’s witty as F* and I love hearing what she comes up with. In LLC…she says she doesn’t have to pay for anyone to write her lyrics. And I believe her. The woman just has it. Kind of like Eminem. Their brain is like an aquarium tank that holds an ocean of words. It flows behind one another in perfect order. I can’t even say a complete sentence without throwing out “you know what I mean” because I can’t come up with any other words to describe what I am trying to get across 😂
Her Barbie’s one… O.M.G. I would hate to be on her bad side.
LLC is on repeat right now. Ladies boss up. I need to boss up 😁 Of course, Meek has a song. Meek, I had no clue who you were until Nicki. And now, Meek who? This reminds me of the Kardashians. You mess with someone of that statue (not saying I look up to them or anything)…they have all this power and money and people love them. Like…talk bad about JLo and you will see this>>> 👿 come out of me 🤷
8 years on the scene and Nicki is still lite 🔥That’s awesome. I’m already excited for the next one. In the meanwhile, this album is going to help me build some confidence with a couple of projects I’m starting right now 😎
I feel like I’m still recovering. I went to her Friday show in Santa Clara. I made perfect timing. I have a best friend who is overly on top of shit. Our outings run so smoothly and I so appreciate him for that! Because I don’t have it that together 😂 I can be last-minute which in return can cost us more money 😒 He prepaid and made sure to secure a close parking spot because he knew I’d be in heels 💃💃💃 He is definitely my life saver.
The stadium looked kind of empty. I was a little sad by it at first. But it was Friday night and most people work till 6ish. I took the day off course 😊 preparation takes a whole day 😉
I managed to get a drink and a vegan dog in before the first performance. Ready!!! Charlie_XCX was cool. I like her but not a super fan. Then Camila came on. I was so excited! What sucked was a lot of people weren’t standing. I was being “considerate” I guess and kept my bottom clued to my chair. It doesn’t make sense to me to go to a concert and not get up and dance “shrug shoulders” I was still shaking in my seat though haha BUT…as soon as Havana came on, me being miss considerate went out the window 🤣🤣🤣 It was her last song of the night and she does great as always. I’ve seen her a few times already. I was obsessed with Fifth Harmony and Camila was my favorite.
The sun starts to set. This is the first concert that I’ve ever been to that started on time! Taylor took the stage at 9 and OMG…the crowd went wild!!! Now, if you wanted to sit down the whole show…sorry cause 90% of the fans were up shaking their tail feather. I sat down through one song. Of course a slow one. She was playing the piano. I believe it was Remember Me.
It was a great show. Her performance was on point. Along with her dancers and props. She even gave everyone a glow watch. It would light up with different colors according to what song she was performing. Super freaken dope Taylor!
She’s different. I’ve gone to a lot of concerts but with hers…it feels much more personal. She really tries to connect even after all this time of being famous and touring. And obviously respectful of our time LOL Thank you, Taylor.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures unfortunately. And my videos aren’t the best. Like, I want to have good footage because I’d like to blog about it…but at the same time I want to be in the moment. Being at a concert is totally my element and I want to enjoy it completely. So I will do my best! haha
