I know some of you are gonna be like, Je’Tara has lost her freaking mind but I haven’t I promise. I like Nicki for mutiple reasons. I like her silly raps because to me they are hilarious. But one thing that stands out about Nicki is her confidence. Obvisously, Nicki is very confident in the way she raps, looks and dress. (We all seen her on 106 and park she has to be a confident woman to dress like that.) She calls herself the Harajuku Barbie, and so does her fans. That is why I like her. See everyone is making these little jokes about these women calling themselves Barbie and not being beautiful. But everytime you knock down their confidence Nicki brings it back up.
I watched one girl get slaughtered on twitter because she called herself a Barbie. Yes, a few of the jokes were funny but it got me thinking, why are we making fun of these young black girls (majority of the girls who call themselves Barbie are black) who wouldn’t normally be this confident because they call themselves Barbie? After I thought about it for awhile, I came to the conclusion that even though I wish they would chill with this Barbie talk, I won’t be one of the ones making fun of them for doing it.
Being a black woman who has some extra weight on her I know how it feels to need that extra confidence booster. For me it was “Booylicious” for these girls it’s Nicki. So stop telling them not to call themselves Barbie because if it helps them feel pretty then by all means let them be. I hope that one day they don’t have to resort to the whole “I am a Barbie movement” but for now it works. So Nicki keep giving them confidence in that department because some of them need it. (Try to tone down them outfits though, we don’t need them dressing slutty.)
