Stevie Wonder Might Be Doing “Dancing With the Stars.” Oh.
The Wondrous One went on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and said he wants to do “Dancing With the Stars.” Lawd… who are Stevie Wonder’s handlers and PR people??? I wrote Stevie a sternly-worded letter in February 2010 and I might need to update it. They don’t do Stevie right. His legend is way too awesome to to be thrown back in his face constantly.
Stevie wants to do DWTS so he can lose weight and look better. Meanwhile, nobody told him his hairlines starts at the nape of his neck. Oh ok. And no, that wasn’t a blind joke (I don’t make those. I’m not 100% jerk, ya know? Maybe just 85%). But Stevie can feel that he has to reach further back to touch his hair. Why does he still have those loc braids? I don’t like the people around Stevie. I DO NOT LIKE THEM. Tell that man that he should just go bald. And tell him “No” sometimes. And place him on a pedestal because he’s earned the right to be on one.
I bet you I could ask Stevie to come sing at my backyard BBQ and his people will ask if he should bring chicken or watermelon. NAWL.
They need to treat Stevie like the legend that he is and stop having him do stuff like scat with Trey Songz on BET. Remember that?? Yeah, me neither. O_O I get in my feelings bout Stevie, because there’s no reason for him to be doing some of this stuff. DWTS is like a stamp that says “I used to be relevant, but now I’m dancing badly for your approval.” He doesn’t belong on there.
And I’m kinda afraid of the logistics anyway. I’ve seen a clip where Stevie tripped because his handlers didn’t communicate a stair to him and it made me so uncomfortable. What happens when he’s doing spins and twirls on DWTS? This just makes me nervous, man.
Esp after seeing him on BET doing a duet w/ that lesser, Trey. I was embarrassed for him. They had Stevie play backup for the Jonas Bros and I cussed. They shouldn’t e’em be able to touch the hem of his brocs (braid locs).
I bet yall that someone has had Stevie Wonder come sing “Isn’t She Lovely” at their daughter’s quincenera. SMH.
And AND can they stop dressing Stevie in random ass animal print? Dressing him like the human epitome of the circle of life. I’m mad at all his people. LET STEVIE’S LEGEND BE GREAT!!!
