Single Mothers..... Where you at??

Those who know me and some that don't will know that I have a child. A son, I am also a single mother. I'm not ashamed to say it, but it's not one of my best achievements.... admittedly.

Anyway.... I was thinking the other day while washing up my dishes about all the females that are mothers to children who also call themselves 'single mothers', and I thought that some of these females shouldn't be able to call themselves so. I mean, when I was carrying my child, I bought EVERYTHING he would need coming into this world. From the sterilising unit to the pram to his clothes. As time has gone on, I may get a few bits here and there from family members, friends and very sporadically his father would remember that he has a son and buy him some clothes, a coat or some trainers, but as I said, its sporadic, something that can only be appreciated when it happens and not depended on.

So.... All these females that leave their children with their fathers at least once a month, or call on them when they're short of cash don't really KNOW what being a SINGLE PARENT is!!! I would also like to state that most if not all at some point, tend to get highty tighty with their "babyfathers" and in spite declare that he can not see his child!! I wonder who this punishes, him or the child, but these females definitely are more than brazen to be calling themselves single mothers in the light that when ready, they turn their back on whatever input the male parent is providing.

But you know what?? I'm not alone in my thoughts on this one..... I came across this video on YouTube. If you class yourself as a single parent, listen and take a moment to think, because being a SINGLE PARENT is no joke!!!

M.O.B.O Awards......

Everyone is talking about the MOBO Awards but I'm not getting all gassed up this year..... Firstly I don't understand why it's being held in Glasgow?? What I mean by this is, hardly any of the winners turn up when the ceremony is held in Wembley, do you think more people will make the effort to turn up if it's held in Glasgow? We shall see.....

With many UK acts holding nominations however from the likes of Chipmunk, Dizzie Rascal and Tinchy Stryder to Yolanda Brown who is up again for Best Jazz Act (she won the 2008 Award) and Donaeo who is up for Best UK Act hopefully UK will be able to dominate the award winners. I have to wonder what was going through the thoughts of the board that picked some of these nominees on the other hand, as many of them just simply don't make sense.

Anyway, it's MOBO time again..... The question really is whether anybody actually cares anymore??

Wiley sends for N-Dubz

IS there no room from friendships in the music industry anymore?

WILEY has turned on fellow grime act N-DUBZ - weeks after collaborating with the band.

It has not been decided whether Na, Na, Na will be released as a single or if it will feature solely as a track on the N-Dubz album, due out in November.

Whatever the decision, it's clear Wiley wants nothing more to do with the former chart-toppers - labelling them as competition.

He said: "Everyone only cares about themselves. I don't care about them and I don't want to talk about the single.

"They can talk about that themselves. You know why? Because I featured on a track for them, so it's not for me to promote it - that's their job.

"What's happening now is that the charts are open, and although a lot of people are working together, everyone just wants to chart themselves, not other artists."

He continued: "Where I'm older (30-years old), I can say, 'you know what? Good for them.' They don't give a damn about Wiley, they just care about themselves.

"We are not friends anymore, we're competition. N Dubz, whatever!"

I think we get the message!!

Final Destination

There aren't many films that can get a big reaction from me, but the Final Destination trilogy has kept me highly entertained over the many years. With each one in possession on DVD, the adrenaline rush is always never too far away. Now I'm due to be on the hunt for the next one!!

Released in the cinema on August 28th, I'll be pre-booking my ticket cause there is no way the 29th is arriving and I haven't had a full dose of harmless high blood pressure!! The trailer was enough to get an emotional reaction from me..... Then it's in 3-D too!!

OK, do you think I'm gassing?? Check this out:

Big Move?

Every now and again I do something out of character for various reasons. Some reasons are obvious, some aren't. Not everything leaves behind evidence however.....

Was this a Big Move??
