Looking at pictures of Foxy Brown performing with Nicki Minaj at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC earlier this week, I was left with a bunch of questions. First, let me begin by saying, I was happy to see Foxy and Nicki come together without all the usual drama, and yes, I am a fan of them both, especially Foxy. I still remember seeing her for the first time in the “Ain’t No” video with Jay-Z and thinking how beautiful she was, and recording her songs on the radio, and listening to them over and over again, to memorize the lyrics…she was BAD!
But back to the questions….what did Foxy have on? Why? And most importantly, where were her friends? Now, this post purpose isn’t to bash Foxy Brown, because we’ve all had our moments, but, as my father has always told me, your real friends tell you the truth. Where were her friends to tell her that she was stuck in a time warp?
Ultimately, this all got me to thinking about the bigger question, “would you tell a friend if she looked bad”? Is it a friend’s place to tell you that your hairstyle or your outfit is unflattering? And, how would you feel, being told that your lipstick shade is horrid?
My mom and sister will be the FIRST to tell me that my foundation is too orange or that they dislike my new hairstyle, and as much as I hate to hear it, I do value their opinions. Maybe, it might be different coming from someone else.
How do you feel? Are you honest with your friends about their looks, or do you sugarcoat your opinions in the name of friendship?
