Think Like A Man…Act Like A Fool

In case you didn’t know, comedian/actor/author Steve Harvey has released his new movie, “Think Like A Man” which is based on his book, Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man. I haven’t seen the movie, but those that have seen it say it’s pretty good. Kudos to him and he’s probably thinking like a millionaire all the way to the bank (the movie was #1 its opening weekend, pulling in $33 million), lol. But I’m not here to talk about Steve Harvey or relationships today….well, at least not directly.

On Monday, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders tweeted to  390,000 + followers, “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail n I’m pressing charges!” WTH?! Say it ain’t so….this can’t be true. It’s bad enough to tweet your personal business (more than likely in an attempt to gain attention), but why get your kids involved in that?! Again…WTH?! Pilar, Deion Sanders estranged wife and now WWE wrestling candidate, has some explaining to do too though. If he didn’t hit you, why are you jumping him???? But more importantly, why do people feel the need to put their personal business on social media forums? Some things just should not be share for all of the world to see. I’m just saying…

Then there’s Nicki Minaj….the classic case of removing social media outlets in efforts to gain attention. After what seems like disappointment behind lackluster album sales, she has decided to delete her Twitter account that had over 11 million followers.  She reportedly did this because she’s sick of all the buzz behind her selling out and becoming a pop artist. Somebody please let me know when these people have real problems in their lives….SMH. I’m sure with the headache over selling out or not, comes a fat check. Hmmm….so is this supposed to make everyone rush out to get the CD?? It seems like people these days are following the mantra, “All publicity is good publicity”.  But that doesn’t work for everyone… Nicki Minaj’s whole image is built on shock value, so she would have to do something pretty drastic in her personal life to drum up major sales….but again, I’m just saying… In a recent interview with UK radio host Tim Westwood, where she refers to herself in 3rd person as “the kid”, she says, “”People aren’t even giving the kid props for taking it back to the essence. This is my fourth mixtape, really. The kid did like that so she could feed her fans. But really, now the kid is thinking maybe she should leave the game.” Who the heck is the kid?!?! Nonsense….

The point of it all is why air out your dirty laundry in the media? True we all have it…but don’t all want to smell it. Keep some things private…everybody doesn’t need to know everything. And deleting Facebook and Twitter accounts to gain attention may not be the best way to go either. You’ll feel even worse if you do and no one begs you back….just a thought. So what are your thoughts on it? Do you think Twitter and Facebook users have gotten too outrageous with their posts, status updates, Tweets and Twit pics? What should these outlets really be used for? WTH is really going on…

And oh…BTW, make sure you follow me on Twitter (@Peauxetic) and Facebook (Peauxetixc Expressions)….

  1. SMH, these celebs are just … something else entirely. Nicki Minaj is the worlds biggest attention seeker, don’t get me wrong, I know ALL celebrities love the attention or they would have done something else with their lives but seriously … seek that attention humbly!
