    I will always love kelis

    I rolled my eyes when record label said they are participating in the black out

    Gurl, u guys use black artists like s****.
    U give them shìtty contracts to sign etc.

    Not only white executives but black music executives do this to black artistes

    Pharrell, p. Diddy , two rats are a perfect example.
