Psst…Your Ignorance Is Showing.

I missed the Grammy’s last night because I had something better to do with my time! I was spending some quality movie time with my family!
But I did record it on the DVR, and I may even get around to actually watching it this weekend! But man oh man, my twitter time line was crazy last night. Some shows really bring out the ignorance in folks. SMH! Before I went to bed I skimmed the twitter feed and some of the trending tweets and WHOA people were really upset!!

Grown people were reduced to calling names, insulting clothes, hair, body and everything else! When people look at today’s youth and wonder why they are disrespectful, ignorant, and asinine, some of those same people need to take a good look at themselves. Some of the tweets I read were complimenting and congratulatory but the vast majority of them were childish and ignorant (you ADULTS should be ashamed of yourselves!).

If YOU do not like jazz, that is fine but it does NOT mean that jazz ARTISTS are any less deserving or artistic than pop singers! Pull yourself together America, your ignorance is showing!

I love this cover of Stevie Wonder’s Overjoyed! Oh, By the way, CONGRATULATIONS ESPERANZA SPALDING! Very well deserved!

Overjoyed – Esperanza Spalding

Peace & Love All!

    i heard an army of justin beiber fanatics managed to hijack her wikipedia page and post some of the same insulting comments as you mentioned.people aren't playing nice anymore. the anonymity of the world wide web is conducive to showing your true colors!

    She is such a talented young lady with an amazing story! I missed her this summer when she was in DC, but I will definitely catching her the next time she is in town. The Beiber fans that have acted obnoxious and ignorant can kick rocks!
