When It All Falls Down… Kanye West

 

We Idolize Man..

Movie Stars, Rap Artist, Singers, Drug Dealers…

What happened to admiring doctors, lawyers, teachers, just people with a good work ethic. 

If we break this particular song down.. it says much about how we are thinking, so self conscouis, appearing to have no idea what we truly want out of life…. The major she picked doesnt make a real living, and she doesnt want to quit, worried about what her parents would think.  So she is pleasing them, but not truly pleasing herself.  She has a daughter, and her concern is what kind of shoes she will wear… The media keeps us focused on what we are wearing, but not focused on matters of real importance.  And we have ate it up like hot cakes..

[Kanye West]
Man I promise she so self consciouss
She has no idea what she doing in college
That major that she majored in don’t make no money
But she won’t drop out her parents look at her funny
Now tell me that ain’t insecurr
The concept of school seems so securr
Sophmore three yurr ain’t picked a carurr
She’s like Fuck I’ll just stay down here and do hair
Cause thats enough money to buy her a few pairs of new airs
Cause her baby daddy don’t really care
She so precious with the peer pressure
Couldn’t afford a car so she named her daughter Alexis
She had hair so long that it looked like weave
Then she cut it all off now she look like Eve
And she be dealing with some issues that you can’t believe
Single black female addicted to retail

[Syleena Johnson]
Oh when it all…
It All Falls Down
(And When it All Falls Down Who You Gunna Call Now?)
Im Tellin You All…
It All Falls Down
(Cmon Cmon And When It Falls Down)

[Kanye West]
Man I promise I’m so self conscious
That’s why you always see me with a least one of my watches
Rollies and pasha’s done drove me crazy
I can’t even pronounce nothing, yo pass the versace
Then I spent $400 bucks on this
Just be like nigga you ain’t up on this
And I can’t even go to the grocery store
With out some ones that are clean and a shirt with a team
It seems we living the American Dream
But the people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to the riches and the diamond rings
We shine because they hate us floss because they degrade us
We trying to buy back our 40 acres
And for that paper look how we’ll stoop
Even if your in a benz you still a nigga in a coup

[Chorus]

I say fuck the police thats how I treat them
We buy our way out of jail but we can’t buy freedom
We buy a lot of clothes but we don’t really need them
Things we buy to cover up whats inside
Cuz they made us hate ourselfs and love they wealth
Thats why shorty’s holla where the ballas at?
Drug dealer’s buy Jordan’s crackhead buy crack
And the white man get paid off of all of that
But I ain’t even gonna act holier than thou
Cause fuck it I went to Jacob with 25 thou
Before I had a house and I’ll do it again
Cause I wanna be on 106 and park pushing a Benz
I wanna act balerific like its all terrific
I got a couple of past few bills won’t get specific
I got a problem with spending before I get it
We all self conscious, I’m just the first to admit it

[Syleena Johnson]
Oh when it all…
It All Falls Down
(And When it All Falls Down Who You Gunna Call Now?)
Im Tellin You All ..
It All Falls Down
(Cmon Cmon And When It Falls Down)

Oh …. Yah … Watcha Gunna Do When It All Falls Down?

 

8 Reasons Why We Are So Obsessed With Celebrities

8 Reasons Why We Are So Obsessed With Celebrities
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Jeremy_Waite]Jeremy Waite

A few years ago, Piers Morgan suggested that celebrity-driven journalism was no longer the way to sell newspapers. Three years ago, a survey found that 60 per cent of adults were bored with celebrity and yet Nielsen TV ratings and book sales suggest otherwise. Why is it that we are so fascinated with celebrities?

1. Inspiration

We all love a good rag-to-riches story, we all love hearing about the guy or gal who come from so and so with little cash flow, but dreamed big and persisted enough to make it happen. Make no mistake about it, celebrities are the mythical figures of the modern time, and that they are human makes them all the more appealing and identifiable. As such, it’s only natural for us to find inspiration in them.

2. Escapism

We love hearing about college drop-outs who felt whatever line of business they were set up for wasn’t their true calling, and they laid it all down on the line to pursue something even bigger. And obviously we love hearing this stuff, because a majority of us are rather dissatisfied with our own careers and we look elsewhere for that inspiration or change.

3. Aspiration

It is a common philosophical principle that we find it easier to project or attribute our own values to an outside model or person and follow through with finding out and modeling that person or entity. We may not be completely happy with our own lives, but we can feel a certain sense of well-being by being associated with the brands that they endorse or the kind of lifestyle choices that they make.

4. Ethics

Many A-List celebrities endorse charitable causes because it’s fashionable to be an activist, but we may not have the time, money or desire to do so. Given this, we will always admire those who perpetrate the change that we wish for in this world.

5. Entertainment

Celebrities are fun. We love to watch them. That’s why they’re celebrities in the first place. We like to forget our own troubles and we like to project it outside, and in so doing, we attribute these feelings of good times and fun to the people involved with making these activities, and this also leads to the above-mentioned inspiration, good or bad.

6. Scandal

“I believed in you and you let me down.” No one likes knowing that those on the top of the ladder can be just as imperfect as those on the bottom, and the more cynical of us will take pleasure in that fact. Nothing generates headlines faster than a fallen celebrity. It’s that fascination with what it’s like to be up there on the edge that interests so many people, considering that many believe that such folks have reached a certain peak of human achievement, even if you were to point out that no such ladder exists in the first place.

7. Talent

Dating-gurus point out these days, that women love Brad Pitt, not primarily for his looks but for the characters he plays on-screen. I am not, though, saying that these celebrities are void of talent; their talent is a big part of who they are; their ability to make us laugh or cry isn’t something that can only be attributed to their created personas, but their real personas. It had to have come from somewhere after all. That’s why it’s often suggested that people emulate these characteristics and talents. Jack Black may not top the most handsome men’s list, but he is often voted as ‘ideal long-term partner’ material.

8. Emotion

80% the big decisions we make in our lives are driven by emotion. Only 20% are rational. We often make a decision with our heart and then try to justify it with our heads. The fact that celebrities make us laugh, cry, scream and shout associates them with many of the same emotions that decide our big decisions in life. Who you want to marry, where you want to go on holiday, what car you want to drive, where you want to work, who you want to sleep with. Consciously or sub-consciously, this mutual association is often at the root of our fascination with celebrity.
