Amanda = Nadupoi on Exiled

Posted in Africa, Foolishness, TV on October 6, 2008 by missmwabi

Meet Amanda.  She’s one of those spoiled brats on MTV’s Sweet 16 who want the moon and the stars from their willing parents and don’t even give a thank you.  MTV knew there were on to something with this one. The show got people talking….you were either a parent who couldn’t believe the crazy demands from these kids or you were a teen who couldn’t wait to get your own elaborate sweet 16 on a not so elaborate budget.

Well, MTV went back to the drawing board and came up with Exiled.  Exiled is a show that takes former Sweet 16ers and places them in parts of the world unlike their own to teach them about life…or something like that.  Uh huh.

Amanda is sent off to live with the Masai tribe in Kenya and she in true TV fashion can’t stand it for 75% of the episode then suddenly switches gears and becomes a new person with a whole new perspective, just like that.

The gem of this episode had to be Josephine, Amanda’s host.  Josephine keeps her cool throughout the entire episode.  If MTV really wants to impress me, they need to bring the hosts from these countries to the U.S. and give them a week of extravegance and tape that.

Watch the full episode here.

Will Estelle Stay True?

Reports say Atlantic Records want Estelle to have cosmetic surgery on her teeth to help her break into the American charts.

According to The Sun, the record label bosses also want her to ditch the boyish haircut and want to give her a complete image overhaul.

SAY WHAT?!

Did anyone ask Amy Winehouse to change her looks?!

The good news is that Estelle is not happy. She feels her teeth and the rest of her look are a big part of her character.

Thank goodness! Lets hope she stays true to herself and doesn’t let them make her look like every other artist out there.

Never mind that her album is #1 in the UK.

I am a firm believer that we are all made different for a reason. People connect to Estelle and her music because she seems real, why change that?

If his reality show didn’t clue you in then statements made to XXL magazine will:

Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.

Barack?!

Barack.
What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

Yeah.
What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?
Nope.

Is that why you’re not following it?
No, because it’s just—it doesn’t matter. They’re gonna do what they’re gonna do. It doesn’t really make a difference. These are the last years.

But it would be pretty big if we had a first Black president. That would be huge.
I mean, I guess…. What, they gon’ give a dog a bone? There you go. Ooh, we have a Black president now. They should’ve done that shit a long time ago, we wouldn’t be in the fuckin’ position we in now. With world war coming up right now. They done fucked this shit up then give it to the Black people, “Here you take it. Take my mess.”

Right, exactly.
It’s all a fuckin’ setup. It’s all a setup. All fuckin’ bullshit. All bullshit. I don’t give a fuck about none of that.

We could have a female president also, Hillary Clinton.
I mean, either way it doesn’t matter. I don’t care. No one person is directly affected by which president, you know, so what does it matter.

Yeah, but the country is.
I guess. The president is a puppet anyway. The president don’t make no damn decisions.

The president…they don’t have that much authority basically?
Nah, never.

But Bush pretty much…
You think Bush is making fuckin’ decisions?

He did, yeah, he fucked up the country.
He act like he making decisions. He could barely speak! He could barely fuckin’ speak!
Can’t be serious. He ain’t making no damn decisions.

Well Barack has a good chance of winning so that might be something.
Good for him, good for him.

There are NOT enough side eyes for Earl.  God bless Tashera.
