I Just Can't

Thoughts on the new Brandy and Monica song/video...

So I just got finished watching the 'world premiere' of Brandy and Monica's video "It all belongs to me" and it got me thinking...

Why......on earth.....would I.....give a man.......all this stuff???

If there is no paper work signed, no unity made under god, in front family, friends and people I pretend are family and friends, why would a woman give a man a car, all his jewelry, all his clothing and shoes, pay for his cell phone, everything? I'm not talking about gifts or tokens of I love you. I'm talking about full out, sugar mama, taking care of everything for this man.

I don't think there is any loving on this PLANET that is that good.

As a man, would you not want to be out there handling your business? Does it really make you look better to your people that you are riding around in a car your WOMAN bought you? Wearing clothes your WOMAN put you in? Buying things with HER money? Is that what's really good out there in the streets right now? Is that that pimp status? Playa-playa?

That's so, not manly to me, and you already know I have issues with guys who do things I consider very unmanly. I mean are you a child? Got mommy issues or something? Are your legs broken? Can't get out there and work to get your own? It's not cute, not sexy, and not something that would even attract me to a guy. So much to the point that I don't understand how these guys manage to get these women to do these things for them. Good game I guess, but honestly that's just such a turn off. You like an independent woman, a woman who's got her own? Well I like an independent man.

And ladies I have to tell you that there are so many of you out there that are just doing the most for these men and getting ABSOLUTELYnothing in return. Not saying that relationships should be this tit-for-tat kind of thing. But doesn't it kill the mood to have your man dismount after that supposedly good-good and ask you for gas money?

I think that often women do this to prove to this man that she's a good woman. But come on....
Everything? You're going to give him everything?

Come on. COME. ON.

OH! and spoiler alert. At the end of the video they BLOW UP the car that one of them supposedly had given to her man. BLOW UP MY OWN SHIT?


Really Monica.

That was a Porche. Like you said for the last 2-3 minutes of the song, YOUR Porche.
