Tia’s comment almost made me laugh out my food when I first read it.

At first glance, I wondered if she had a McDonald’s bib stuck to the waist of her dress.

@Sergio: Passive-aggressively talking about other people’s business is the absolute lowest form of low-lifeism. LOL

Hee! Many of us “low lifes” have helped to get Bey’s career to where it is by buying her albums, going to her concerts, etc. It’s nice to know what she really thinks of us.
Also: “people’s.” At least *this* low life knows how to use punctuation.

I’m never reading this blog again.
Just kidding ;)

The first thing I thought of when I read this post is that maybe Wade went through something like Stockholm Syndrome.
The second thing I thought of is a friend who recently got out of an abusive relationship. As she worked her way towards that point, however, there were a lot of times when she doubted herself. As somebody who has not been abused, it was shocking to see the way abuse messes with a person’s perception: maybe it was understandable that he forced himself on her when she said no because he does have needs, and just because once a week is good for her doesn’t mean that she has a right to say no. Maybe she deserved to be hit and shoved around because she knows that he gets angry when she does or says “x,” so she should have been more careful.
Also, I think Wade knew what he was going to open himself up to when he decided to sue, but he did it anyways. He doesn’t need the money, so why would he put himself through it?
By the way, I think it’s sad that a lot of people’s default seems to be “let’s punch holes in his story.” Is it because we think that, if we can find a flaw, it means this sort of thing can’t happen to us or our loved ones?

@Alecia I once heard an abuse survivor say that, for some people, the money awarded by the court is acknowledgment that the abuser did something wrong.

She is so much fun to watch in interviews that I really want to like her music, but I just can’t.

Sorry, Trent, but the best commercial I’ve seen to date is still this Aiwa commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bp_jALfbwEU).
The Audi one was amusing, though.

Really? It’s not enough that we have the media telling us how we’re supposed to look, so we have to discriminate among ourselves? Are some of us really unable to make a coherent argument and so we have to bring down some other group?
