Watch This: Millie Jackson Is Amazing

In somber times as the present it’s nice to know that Rich of FourFour, who has been the Nettie to my Celie since 2005, can still make me smile with my heart.

I’m a little late to this one, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t touch on my favorite person on TV this week, soul singer Millie Jackson. Her life story took up an hour of TV One’s Unsung (basically my favorite show on TV now – did you see last week’s Full Force episode?!?). And what a story it was! She got her break by shit-talking some woman that was onstage at a concert she attended. She described her marriage to a bass player like this: “He was a decent cat, but he thought we were going to be Ike and Tina, and the record company didn’t sign Ike, it only signed Tina.” She gave Roxanne Shanté these words of advice: “You’ll be successful a lot longer for the nasty things that come out of your mouth than the nasty things you put in it.” She made fun of her own music, lamented her inability to pawn gold records and showed that at age 67, she’s still quite flexible (you can see that in the video above).

    When I first saw this title Watch This: Millie Jackson Is Amazing | Crunk + Disorderly on google I just whent and bookmark it.Woah! I’m really digging the actual template/theme of this blog. It’s easy, yet successful. A large amount of times it is rather hard to obtain that excellent balance between functionality and look. I must say you might have done a great job using this. In supplement, the blog loads very swift for myself on Opera. Excellent Website!
