I went to high school with creative chicks who had purses with Marilyn’s face emblazoned on it, and bought products with her likeness just to keep up with the oh-so popular jones: loving and acting like you personally knew celebrities who have been gone for years–decades sometimes.

So after putting a post up on my social media about the fabulous Phylicia Rashad’s achievements at 12 a.m.
People who know me know that I love this month, love giving out daily black history facts and watching documentaries on black people; Everyone has their own way of celebrating the month, whether loud or subtly, and it always makes me smile.
So, it’s the first of the month of February and you know what means don’t you? But anyway…Then, this morning while looking through my e-mail, I was asked to view a new music video by new Femme C (female lyricist) Brianna Perry called of all things, “Marilyn Monroe.” In the video, the black female rapper has long a long blonde lace front, and in a few scenes has a fake Marilyn Monroe beauty mark above her lip and by her cheek. She was a beautiful woman who I’m sure brought a lot of light and joy to people’s lives and maybe even taught folks to be comfortable with their curves. However, I don’t understand why so many black women seem to be enamored with her days. But psych my mind, because so many celebrities get dressed up like her on the cover of magazines and in music videos to try to emulate her sex appeal and aura (I’ve seen Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez don the same wig that looks like Monroe’s hair in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”), buy portraits of her face and shout her out in their tracks.
on the dot, I was kind of confused to learn through the gossip mill 15 minutes later that Rihanna spent 0,000 on a Swarovski crystal-adorned portrait of Marilyn Monroe. But I’m saying, my niece could have drawn one for her and bedecked it in macaroni for the low low.
