Strip Me.

8 Nov
“Strip Me” is a fairly new single from Natasha Bedingfield. I¬†stumbled¬†upon the video on YouTube and I instantly fell in love with it. I seriously can’t stop watching it. She has the prettiest face, ever. Her make-up is amazing in this video. My favorite look is when she has the dark, red lips with the dark, grey-ish eye makeup. Also, her outfits are SO her. I can’t get enough of it! I also like the message of the song. You have to listen to the words. The lyrics will be posted after the video. I hope you guys enjoy ūüôā
Lyrics
La la la la la la
Everyday I fight for
All my future somethings
A thousand little wars
I have to choose between
I could spend a lifetime
Earning things that I don’t need
But that’s like chasing rainbows
And coming home empty
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away
If you strip me,
What would you find
If you strip me,
Strip it all away
Ill be alright

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

I dont need a microphone, yeah,
To say what I been thinking
My heart is like a loudspeaker
Thats always on eleven
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away
If you strip me,
What would you find

If you strip me,
Strip it all away
I’m still the same

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

‘cuz when it all boils down
At the end of the day
It’s what you do and say
That makes you who you are
Makes you think about it,
Think about it
Doesn’t it
Sometimes all it takes is one voice

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

Janelle Monae

13 Oct

I would put this picture under Inspiration, but I thought it would be better suited¬†underneath¬†the music category. I feel such a strong connection to Janelle. Her voice is so unique and not auto-tuned AT ALL. It’s almost rare to find a genuine singer these days. In this¬†particular¬†video she does her version of Charlie Chaplin’s song “Smile”. This happens to be on my top ten list of favorite songs. She does the song such justice. She keeps it classy, while adding her own spin. Also her performance has a lot to do with how she presents herself. Her style is¬†impeccable. Her outfits always scream mens wear. We all know how I’m a sucker for mens wear. She pulls it off fantastically. Her presence is what sets her apart of the crowd. It’s hard to stick out from a crowd these days. I hope you enjoy this video, as much as I do.

ALSO. You should check her own song, Tightrope. I love how she is inspired by jazz and soul music. James Brown is one of her major¬†influences, and you can¬†definitely¬†see that. Jazz is one of my favorite types of music to unwind too. I’m not that crazy about Big Boi’s verse. I feel like it takes away from the overall¬†essence¬†of the song. But beside’s that, it’s pretty great. Enjoy.

Notice her outfit…..LOVE IT.
