With that said I have a brief history lesson for you.
A couple of hundred years ago, it was illegal for slaves (African Americans) to know how to read. And if "massah" found out you could read, you got an all-expenses paid trip to the Upper Room.
Hundreds of years of fighting and struggling later we are free to be as literate, intelligent, and informed as we want to be, but if it's not on a message board or a Beyonce CD booklet some of you dumb dickheads REFUSE to read it.
You'll count the number of paragraphs and say "Nope...I'm not reading all that..."
I could be giving out directions to get free cars filled with hundred dollar bills, and you wouldn't know it if it wasn't in the first sentence.
Our ancestors would weep.
READ A DAMN BOOK!
I can't force you to be literate so today's post is in video format.
For the next few weeks we will be celebrating the Best of Sasha Fierce.
I don't have words for you dumb journalists who have taken this Beyonce/Sasha thing too far...
I don't have the strength today. I'm kinda stressed. A little sad. Still a lil horny. Unlike Aretha I CAN'T find anyone willing to touch my body... well I can, but I have standards. I just can't give the goodies away randomly... I'm a classy ho...
But I digress...
Back to Beyonce.
I like Beyonce.
But I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Sasha Fierce.
What's the difference?
Beyonce will give you a ride to the club.
Sasha brings a change of shoes in case shit jumps off in the club.
Beyonce sends bail money.
Sasha is sitting in jail with you.
Beyonce waits until you come home from work to talk.
Sasha comes down to your job, acts a fool and has to be escorted out by security.
Beyonce breaks up with you but still wants to be friends.
Sasha breaks all the windows out your car.
Beyonce sips expensive champagne and eats at only the finest restaurants.
Sasha sneaks liquor and hot wings into the movie theater.
You get the picture?
Today's entry was "inspired" by Pop Up Video. For those of you who only get BET on your Comcast cable plan, Pop-Up Video was a show on VH1 that featured little-known trivia about music videos. So I decided to do a Pop-Up Video for Sasha videos giving you "facts" that even the most ignorantly devoted stan didn't know.
The first video in our "Best of Sasha" Video Series is her classic Destiny's Child performance of Cater 2 U performance from the 2005 BET Awards.
