Letters to Usher

Dear Usher,

I really wanted to like this song of yours.



I think you're totally cute and that it's really endearing that you say "gosh" so many times in one song. It's refreshing, even. But I do have a bone to pick with the following lyrics:

"Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow."

Okay, Usher, really? Boobies? That was really the sexiest word you could think of? Because if anyone tried express attraction to me by complimenting my "boobies" I would laugh really hard and never want to talk to that person again. Are you seven? Or a Pussycat Doll? Because only children and Pussycat Dolls ever say that.

Stop it. Stop it right now.

Sorry, but I had to get that out.

xoxo,
Vanessa

Hi friend, peace...
How are you?

I have new post
And... if you love books, don’t forget to read The Holy Qur'an please...
The Holy Qur’an (112:1-4) had stated, that God is Allah, the One and Only. Allah is God, on whom all depend. Allah begets not, and nor begotten; and none is like Allah.

My boyfriend always cringes when I say 'irregardless'.

I can't think of any words that bother me.

I tend to notice if someone says something, like a phrase, a lot and then it starts to make me wince. I had a teacher that loved 'in regards to'. She said it 58 times during the course of a two hour class once.

Ohhh... I hate the lyrics to OMG although what I hate even more is that the beat is so damn catchy which makes me like this song a little (just very, very little). I suppose though if thats the best he could come up with, its slightly better then what some other people sing about (which are much more explicit), then he's not a very good song lyricist (did he even write this song? well who ever did isn't very creative if they were aiming to be sexists towards females... I've herd far worse. although its still no excuse, I wish the music industry would treat women like this).

I kind of love how totally ridiculous this song is. And by kind of, I mean a lot. It sounds like he wrote it while drunk, which is, as we all know, the only way to write a hit record.

Carry Out by Timberlake and Timbaland...where he says "I'll have you open all night like an IHOP."
That just makes me think of gynecologists and speculums. I don't wanna be open all night, lol.
Had to throw that in there.
