Warning: You might be a Pigeon!

I don’t want no scrub

A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me

Hanging out the passenger side

Of his best friend’s ride

Trying to holler at me


In the summer of 1999, right before entering high school, all I could hear was… I don’t want no SCRUB. Yup, we really thought the term ‘scrub’ was cute and it was overused for months. I do believe females still would not want a Scrub, as described in the song. After reading some Facebook pages, I started looking at people (women, really) in a whole different way. These people claimed that most men are dogs and trying to use women. Upon further investigation, I saw that many of these women were not quality either. Oh yes, I am ‘The Queen’ but I know a lot of women who have very few royal qualities. Women tend to put all the negative focus on men but what about us? Sometimes we are the worst people to be with. I am convinced that females invest too much in to getting a man and we don’t invest enough into improving ourselves.

As most of you have noticed, I listen to a lot of music and my mind wandered to a mediocre (well its pretty bad, but for these purposes, it will do) song. NO PIGEONS! Remember that song?!?!? It was the rebuttal/parody to TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’. I seriously listened to both songs over and over again to see the differences. Real rap (I love saying real rap… so hood lol), the Sporty Thieves track was just RAW. Men tend to keep it real and in this parody…. its pretty harsh (and hood, ghetto… I know yawl!)

Honestly, ladies you might be single because you are a PIGEON. Men have standards as well ladies. Please step your game up. There is always room for improvement. And please, don’t give me a line about ‘I am not trying to change myself to get a man’. No ma’am, you need to change your life so you can be a better YOU. Bump a man. I think the world understands, at this point, most women want a good, decent man. But do you realize that some men are waiting for women to step up to the same plate we have called them to? Stop and think about it. Even if you are not a so-called ‘pigeon’, where can you improve in your life so you can become everything that you should be? As always…

Love Hard. Live Harder.

    Whoa E, defniitely controversial… and after being recently told that though I have a great personality and I’m an amazing girl, I’m physically not beautiful… I can’t help but take it a little personally. Real Talk, I’m just in my emotions. But in the end, I’m all about self improvement and if hearing harsh criticism makes me a better me… bring it on! You can’t crush the butterfly that you can’t catch, my wings are moving to fast…
