I was watching the Neighborhood Inauguration ball, and it was a GOOD TIME, even through the TV. The star power was ridiculous! But y’all know I got some things to say.
*My President has rhythm. Y’all saw him and Shelly (yes, we have given her a nickname) getting down
*Who else was cheesing like a FOOL when Barack started doing the bump with someone? I was expecting him to even start stepping with Michelle (y’all know how us Chicagoans do)
*Michelle Obama is officially a style icon. She can’t do wrong in my book.
*I loves me some Mary J. Blige! Homegirl was fierce with that pixie cut and her dress (simple yet very flattering)
*I’ve come to like Joe Biden. In fact, I shall call him Grandpa Joe from now on.
*Dr. Jill Biden looked STUNNING in that red gown.
*The Obamas and the Bidens are sooo in love. It is awe-spiring to see them interact. Both the first dances had my thug almost on the floor. Just beautiful.
*All the performances were sooo enjoyable!
Honorable mention but not the ball: Y’all KNOW you loved Aunty Re-Re’s (Aretha Franklin) church hat at the actual inauguration. Sister O’Dell is somewhere JEALOUS!! That bow was larger than life (and Re-Re’s mammaries). She came church PROPER!!! l
The Bad & The Ugly
*How in the hot heck did Nick Cannon end up DJing it? I was personally offended because I could not figure out why he is even relevant enough to be invited, let alone play a part in it.
**Sigh* Y’all know I love me some Stevie, but I’ll be damned if his hairline doesn’t recess 5 inches every year. It’s like follicular panacea. He got half a mullet left with that shag. It’s like his hair is running away from his fo’head. Po’ thang.
*Why did Sting come in there looking like Paul Bunyan bout the face? He needed a shave BAD. He used to be FINE too but he looked like Peter Griffin in the episode of “Family Guy” where he grew a thick beard that housed a bird’s nest.
*Umm… Ray Romano deserves many boos. He was blander than a rice cake. His jokes were soooo flat! They coulda had Cedric the Entertainer in that piece!
*Why was Mariah Carey such a mess all around? First, I could see her underwear through the dress. Just uncouth. PLUS she sounded horrible. Mimi needs to go find the lining to her dress AND her voice.
*JayZ’s tux was CLEAN and sharp. I was LOVING it. I’m like “YESS he cleaned up well!”. Then I saw his hair and I faltered. His hair was rough! Looked like it was anti-brush. Bey, getcho man a lining.
*Shakira is the spanish Beyonce (weavaliciousness included). Plus, her voice always sounds like she is on the verge of crying. She irks me.
I quit watching the ball after I saw Shakira about to sing so I can’t comment on the rest. Either way, these bads were just fun to talk about. The Ball was mad fun to watch and the pride I had during the whole day was unmatched. I’ve been a grinning fool ALL day!!!
Edit: I just saw Kanye’s haircut. The nappy shag mullet. I’m soooo outdone. My sense and sensibilities are offended. I rebuke Kanye and his hair in the name of common sense. I just… Can’t. I quit him.
Edit #2: Y’all know I typically don’t do this but my friend LibraSong left this comment about Beyonce and iDied, so I had to highlight it. This is an excerpt with an addition from what he also said on GChat. “I liked Beyonce’s dress and her performance for the most part (SHUTUP, I KNOW!!!!) but also in part because I could quite clearly see both of her entire areolas and nipples. I can draw that whole breast for you from memory REHT NAH!” Yeah, so I quit him!
