Confused Blood

Why accusing women of being mean to other women, just distracts us from having real conversations.

You probably know all about the Nicki Minaj twitter row with Taylor Swift yesterday, so I won’t bore you too much with all the details! But in case you couldn’t care less and haven’t read any of the trashy celeb news…I’ll quickly fill you in.

Nicki Minaj tweeted MTV asking why her Anaconda video hadn’t been nominated for video of the year, despite it breaking records for the most viewed video in 24 hours. With that, Nicki then went on to tweet about how if she was a different kind of artist (slim and white) her videos would have been nominated.

Now I don’t know if Nicki woke up that day and decided she wanted to start a war with Taylor Swift or whether she did want to highlight the “real” reasons as to why her videos weren’t nominated. But Taylor decided to rear her head and get involved by replying to Nicki’s tweets….

Nicki apparently confused – wrote to Taylor saying she had not once mentioned Miss Swift (which is true) despite maybe a couple of hints that seemed to describe Taylor (slim and white).

Regardless of the reasons why we think Nicki started her twitter rant, she did highlight something that is very true. Racism is still alive.

Despite her attempt to focus on what is still happening in the world as well as the music industry, a lot of people responded by accusing Nicki for pulling out the ‘racism card’ because of her anger towards not getting recognition for her video. To top it all off, Taylor’s fans also abused Nicki on twitter for being a mean-cyber bully to T-Swift. Ironic comes to mind when trolls start trolling trolls.

Nicki has fought back by saying that the media is portraying her as a bully just to hide away from the truth that is; Racism.

So why is it that instead of having a debate, women are quick to attack another for creating conflict in the sisterhood?

When Taylor chimed in, it changed the conversation from woman versus institution to woman versus woman. Ironically, this is exactly the complaint Swift levelled against Minaj: “It’s unlike you to pit women against each other.”

Of course there is no way we can hide that sometimes women can be very mean to other women. I’m not really sure if I can class myself as a feminist, but I do know that online-rows like this one, will only fuel frustrating stereotypes such as the old-school gem that ‘women can’t get along with each other and therefore can’t be taken seriously’.

The last thing us girls need to do is fight harder against each other when we’re already fighting for equality with men.

But don’t get me wrong – women being nice to each other doesn’t define feminism or guarantee its future. We should all be able to have a healthy debate and not pull out the ‘you’re being mean’ card. Especially when we’re talking about something so serious.

Towards the end of the infamous row, Nicki did reply to Taylor saying that she too didn’t want any bad blood (I’ve added that bit in) and that she ‘loved’ Miss Swift just as much. Unfortunately Tay-Tay swiped back (obviously still bitter and hurt) with no regard to the racial issues Nicki had highlighted. Instead Taylor’s comment was a reminder of her success and a wish that all issues could be resolved with friendship.

“If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”

In the words of Nicki Minaj – Huh?

One thought

  1. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:26

    Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift are a couple of people among the top of the heap of humanity either pursuing fame and fortune, obtaining fame and fortune, and/or idolizing those who do. Nicki and Taylor reached their positions largely through their musical talents and the help of devils and people. Nicki is expressing her displeasure at her perceived obstacles to obtaining more fame and fortune.

    The questions all of these masses should be asking themselves are:

    Whether their pursuits will lead to fulfilled lives?
    Will they go to heaven or hell when they die? Even if you get the fame and fortune you can’t take it with you when you die.
    Who is GOD and what does He want from them?

    And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 1 Corinthians 9:25

    These masses should be seeking GOD and the fulfillment of His purpose for each one of them instead of their own vain pursuits. Pleasing GOD leads to the incorruptible crown while displeasing GOD leads to the corruptible crown.

    So how do you please GOD?

    We’re all born sinful human beings – rebellious to GOD Almighty, children of Satan, pressured by devils to do unprofitable things. These sins only lead to eternal torment in the fires of Hell.

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

    The LORD Yashua Christ lived a sinless life then died on the cross as a sacrifice for humanity’s sin. By dying on the cross Christ suffered the torments of eternal Hell for all of humanity, past, present and future. Then He arose triumphantly from the grave having defeated death, Hell, and sin to return to the right hand of God the Father in Heaven.

    Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. Revelation 5:12

    Now Yashua Christ offers forgiveness of sin to any human being who asks Him to be forgiven, a purpose filled life here in this physical universe, and an eternity living with Him after death or translation to one’s new body.

    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20

    All one needs to do to begin a relationship with GOD is to admit to Yashua Christ that you have sinned, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and become LORD of your life. Say this prayer below if you want GOD in your life.

    Lord Yashua Christ, I know I have sinned against you and deserve to go to Hell. But you died and suffered Hell in my place so that I could avoid Hell, know you, serve you, and be with you forever. Please forgive me of my sins and become LORD of my life. Thank you Yashua for saving me and adopting me into your family. Amen.

    Once you’ve done this, you are adopted into the family of God. Among the first things you want to do is get any devils out of you if they’re in you – this is called deliverance. Ask Holy Spirit to deliver you. Holy Spirit guides each individual on how to get deliverance, but Psalm 71 gives you an overview of what’s involved. Deliverance ministers at God fearing churches can also help you with the process of deliverance. Frank Hammond and Micah Bell videos on YouTube give excellent instruction on deliverance

    You want get to know God through reading the Bible (preferably King James version), going to a Bible believing and obeying church like El-Shaddai Global under Senior Pastor Ramson Mumba, talking to God all the time through prayer, and fasting among other things. As you get to know GOD, you’ll learn to hear His voice and obey His commandments. Then you’ll grow to know what a fulfilled life is.

    Blessings and peace to you
