Empowerment

So Logan comes home raving about this new song he heard and that I have to hear it. Logan, thankfully, has a pretty good ear for music having once been a musician himself. He knows that as a bellydancer I love a good bass beat and that I love Latin rhythms. I am just getting back into the swing of things after a long illness and there is nothing I love more than a good beat to shimmy to. I think he is regretting showing me this because I think I have played it about 40 times now. LOL

I love the tributes to Billie Holiday and Frida Kahlo. You gotta love the beat on this one. :::happy shimmy:::

…and the chick with the bald head? I want her clothes, she’s gorgeous. I know a lot of women who proudly wear their heads shaved and I think it is beautiful. The ones I know wear it by choice in honor of their sisters or as their mantle of victory in their fight with cancer. I applaud their courage and the fact they want to make a loud statement to the world.

From the Jzabehl site: “It’s All About Me” is a girl power anthem celebrating confidence, self-indulgence and promoting the beauty of commanding respect for what you believe in. It starts and ends with women putting themselves first.

Oh, and the dancing grandma just rocks! Lyrics below. Turn the volume up! (kid safe)

One bad word, but they don’t say it audibly, so don’t worry mom’s…

* * *

I will never be that pretty little girl
that always gets a round of applause and public approval
once a month I flip out act like a bitch and trip out
fall on the ground and cry like a baby till I feel better
All I want is R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I’m not your basic, average, typical hottie
edumacated, complicated, and unique
Domesticate me, dominate me, and you’ll see
Machismo isn’t really doin’ it for me
don’t try to aggrevate me, cause I might…..

La la la la la la la la la la

It’s all about me, hey hey aha (x 3)

What I wear is my choice, pretty in pink and with poise
but I make noise
so cover your ears if I ruffle your feathers
Watch me put my boots on
hang with the boys I get down, but not around
with tough skin, lipstick and razor sharp glances
All I want is R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I’m not your basic, average, typical hottie
don’t try to aggrevate me, cause I might……

La la la la la la la la la la
It’s All About Me, hey, hey aha(x 3)

Love the music, crazy, sexy
Random thoughts, get racey, edgy
Stand up, get down, rhythm take me

I JUST WANT TO START A RIOT!

Little secrets, hate it , keep it
Black box, voice speak, think it, dip it
Hips sway, gyrate, humor seek it

I’M JUST LOOKING TO START SOME SH**!

its all about me hey hey aha!(x 3)
