What if a lot of these hot artists like Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys? Were "FAT" -not "PHAT"? Same sound, but about 2-3 hundred more pounds? Would they be where they are today? Would pepsi give BEYONCE the time of day? or even a DIET pepsi commercial? What if she had this big greasy behind and did that booty hop thing? Would MTV air her videos? Would the FCC be trying to regulate? I mean instead of Lil' Kim... BIG (fried chicken drumstick eating) KIM? -spittin' the SAME lyrics! And Mary J would be...BIG MARY? -doing all the same dance moves...you know? putting it down like BIG MAMA did to "OH, HAPPY DAY" in BIG MAMAS HOUSE? Would people care more or less about all the DRAMA she's been through? And would she have lasted this long in the game? Fellas? what if today's hip-hop videos looked more like a LANE BRYANT campaign and featured heavier set women dressed the SAME as the women in today's video? Ladies, would you go to the R. Kelly concert if he was weighing 350, talking about "I don't see nothing wrong with a lil' bump and grind!" breakin' it down like he do! All that smooth STEPPIN" IN THE NAME OF LOVE would look like a...work-out? Would you watch "Girlfriends" as much if they all were the size of "Sophia's" sisters in the COLOR PURPLE? Is Big Beautiful or are we trying to be polite? Is the media just trying to portray what they think is a healthy image? To people who are large, or big boned are they being cruel? How would things change? How would you change I guess if being BIG was in starting tomorrow and some of these stars were really BIG STARS (weight wise) and the media portrayed that instead of what they portray today. Sex and skin seems to be in but what if the physical image of our hottest actors, artists etc changed and they were still sellin' sex and showing skin? Y'all can't be viewing and not respond now?
