Now that Dwight is back to being happy, people are gonna start eating all their negative words about him. This will be his best season yet. Mark my words.
"When I got into the music industry a majority of female artists I’d seen were trying to regurgitate an ideal of the female image. They were trying to be almost a replica of what was popular. I just found that to be very boring and dishonest. I just wanted to be in control of my clothes. I wanted that choice. That’s the only things that I’m saying. Women should not be marginalized. We shouldn’t play into the sexism." - Janelle Monae [x[
And people have the nerve to ask me why I love Bruno, smh

"Happy Birthday, Nigeria"
A message from the YCI President
I salute you.
Today I am so proud to be “Nigerian”*. Most Independence Days I mark with silence, or with chastising my government and my people. Even though I have lived outside Nigeria for over 20 years, and only last year was reunited with my first love, first soil after 21 years, I still feel the river Niger running through my veins. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
It is because of an intense love of my grandmother’s tongue, my red soil, my Atlantic ocean, my fried dodo, my egusi, my wide-mouthed laughter, my aso-oke, my afro-juju, my kuli kuli, my suya, my market women, my boli and epa (Oh! sweet Jesus, boli and epa), my ikokore, my Chinua Achebes, my Wole Soyinkas, my Funmilayo Ransome-Kutis, my owambes, my masquerades, It is because of my intense love for everything that makes us powerful, beautiful, formidable that I go to such lengths to create and support initiatives that make us better people. The only way to change Nigeria is to change ourselves. We can’t change ourselves unless we have a vision of a better self. We can be anything we can see.
They say “Nigerians” are the happiest people on the planet. No mystery there. Either it is the emu, the music or the soul of the people. No matter the suffering, we find a way to smile.
I am proud to be “Nigerian” today because I know with absolute certainty that I am part of the generation that will change Nigeria—and Africa—drastically and permanently for the better. My own passions are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the amazing work that Africans of this generation are doing to renew the Continent where man, religion and science originated. I am inspired by so many who sacrifice their comforts to make ripples that will be felt by our children’s children.
May we keep the fire burning. May we look back one day and say, “It was all worth it.” May our children’s children thank us.
*The borders that make up Nigeria were imposed by greedy foreigners, but the historic bonds that have tied us are very real. I still think we should focus on regional and continental advancement and erase the strangers’ borders.

I’M SOOOO EXCITED!! CAN’T WAIT!!!
Choosing between who I hate the most, GM or Amanda. This is a hard one.
Don’t forget Aaryn. I don’t understand why people are forgetting that Aaryn is worse than Amanda. Aaryn believes she has done nothing wrong. Amanda is at least remorseful for what she’s said to Candice, has apologized to her, and made up with her.
Amanda says awful things and is a bully. Aaryn lacks self awareness and is ignorant. GM has all of those problem, plus she is illiterate. Thus GM is the worst.
