Bust Your Windows by Jazmine SullivanBy APOOO • Nov 15th, 2008 • Category: Saturday Stories and Songs • Email This Post • Print This Post
Happy Saturday APOOOers! Today was busy…have been up andout since 7am…felt like I put in a full day at the office…but I didn’t. I did spend several hours at Lauren’s cheerleading competition in Pittsburgh…they did well and came in 3rd place. They’re used to coming in 1st or 2nd…but the teams that won were OUTSTANDING and as a spectator I agreed with the judges decisions. Besides, it will teach our girls not to take anything for granted and to always come with their A game because the other two teams came with it and the ‘tudes…LOL. Their demeanor’s said…’we got this.’ Heck I felt it…our girls while excellent sometimes don’t appear as confident as other teams…they have that ‘burb in the headlight look’ sometimes rather than that swagger and sophistication that city kids have.
Anywho…after a four hour drive in the rain…we made it back home safely (from Pittsburgh). Anyone ever spent time in Pittsburgh? All I can take is if you’re an outsider that is one difficult city to maneuver. Thank God for Garmin. LOL.
So…what’s everyone been up today? Reading, writing, chores, running errands, listening to music? Tell us about it. Speaking of listening to music, has anyone heard the song Bust Your Windows by Jasmine Sullivan? CLICK HERE to listen to it if you haven’t heard it.
I heard the song when it first came out andhear it at least once a day on the radio. It’s one of those songs that I’m indifferent too…actually I think its just another dumb song…sigh. LOL. My husband heard it earlier this week and he came home and asked if we had heard it. Of course, we all had and wondered why he was so pumped by it. He laughed and said he didn’t know other than it took balls to make a song with those lyrics. I don’t know about balls…but I agreed with him that the song was whacked and can we please have some REAL music…lol. Okay for some folks that song is keeping it real…but do we really need a song about it. LOL. I wonder who her target audience is…I’m thinking teens/young adults…way let me back up…can I say scorned woman. Now what woman has not been scorned. Question is…how many of us will admit that we ever trashed our ex’s car…lol. All I’m say if I ever did, and I’ve did a lot of things but I never touched anyone’s ride, I would not make a song about it. Oh way…snap…shoot…I should have…cause this song is getting a lot of airtime…and Sistah has ringtones…too…she’s GETTING PAID…lol.
I guess the song was also on Jay Anthony Brown’s mind because yesterday he came up with the antidote as he Murdered Another Hit on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. He was a hoot. Now his version I LOVED…it was hilarious and I laughed so hard that tears rolled down my face. LOL. Did anyone else hear Jay murder Bust Your Windows by Jasmine Sullivan. CLICK HERE to listen to Jay Anthony Brown’s version…let me know your thoughts.
You bust the windows out the car…it’s a rental car…all the charges are on your credit card…and you carved your initials in the car…told you not to show up at my house unexpected…that was just my sister she was over because she had a fight with her husband…now you got to pay for the damage if you don’t want your credit to go bad.
Rotflmao…this ish is absolutely hilarious…don’t forget to check it out and leave your comments. Yeah I know the song Bust Your Windows is childish, immature…but I ain’t going to lie…I LOVED J’s comeback Absolutely brilliant…hehe.
Share your plans for this evening.
Just for fun, what do you think of J’s version?
What books can you think of that include a scene of a woman vandalizing a man’s car? (PS Although she didn’t bust the windows it was still ingenious…the scene from Waiting to Exhale with Bernie getting rid of her ex-hubby’s car…anyone remember that scene?)
