Oh dear Lord. I kept seeing things on my twitter about Kenya having a song coming out. Tonight on WWHL Andy played a bit of it. It’s clear she wrote the lyrics herself. They include things like, “You think I am Crazy, but I’m really fabulous. I’m Gone With The Wind Fabulous. I’m Gone With the Wind Fabulous. Now twirl, twirl, twirl.” I think she also mentions being ghetto, or from the hood, and single, and well if she was interviewed by a third grader and that third grader wrote a song for his class project, it would be better than this song.
One has to wonder if Kenya is familiar with the movie Gone With The Wind at all. I’ve seen the movie and I must have missed the fabulous part. Was it when the yankees came in and took all of Scarlett’s stuff leaving her with nothing but some green velvet curtains? I don’t think the black folks in the movie were having a very fabulous time. You know that whole slavery thing was sort of a bummer. There was no twirling in Gone With The Wind. There were some leg amputations, but no twirling. Also, General Sherman was busy trying to burn all of Atlanta to the ground. The movie’s heroine has two husbands die before the movie two-thirds over. Fabulous. An intelligent person would realize how foolish the comment and the twirling were. Kenya draws more attention to her crazy. SMH
So tune in to WWHL on Sunday if you dare… Kenya will be performing live. Allegedly. I’m sure it will be fabulous, just not in the way Kenya thinks.
