An Open Letter To Jody Watley

Dear Jody,

You used to be cool. "Looking For A New Love" is one of my all time favourite jams and "Larger Than Life" is flawless - beginning to end. I even continued buying your albums when the hits dried up about... 20 years ago because I'm loyal to my faves regardless of their has-been status. But I'm out. Your hateful Twitter tirade against Beyoncé showed your true colours. What kind of bitter mess throws shade at a charity single? Queen B is helping raise money for orphans and widows. To paraphrase another flop that hasn't had a hit in decades - what have you done for anyone lately? I can't believe you had the nerve to imply that Bey is being opportunistic. That's some hilarious shit coming from a woman who walked around the streets of LA with fake plastic surgery scars on her face to drum up publicity for an album called "The Makeover". All that humiliation and it still failed to chart! You're entitled to your opinion and can say whatever you like but don't turn into an hysterical drama queen when the Killer Beys attack. I know you don't have many followers but Twitter is a public forum. Ranting about insecure fans, sending crazy tweets demanding people unfollow you and then deleting all your comments is not a good look.

Goodbye and good riddance,

Mike

PS. Here's the charity single you were dissing. Check it out. You could learn a lot from this flawless vocal performance. But I guess it's too late to teach an old dog new tricks.

Team Jody.

That bitch Bey doesn't have an honest bone in her body.

lmao @ re-releasing some 2 year old song just to get cross promotion for your new album. Bey is so low!

Ah shut up man!...Jody is soooo cool!...( 'Real Love' is AH-MAY-ZING! ) Along with Pebbles and Karyn White, she was the QUEEN of funk in the late 80's/early 90's...she's allowed to say whatever the fuck she likes!...The end :)

Girl, I can forgive your Beyoncé standom because she's pretty, and that's about it...but you DO NOT fuck w/ Jody! She is a LEGEND!!!! A music and fashion icon! She can do no wrong. Bey only wishes she were even an ounce as fabulous as Ms. Watley is.

This washed up hoe needs to keep it cute.

In the words of a surgically-enhanced rapper, "I'm a disagree, and I'm sorry".

Beyonce is the hateful, obese bitch who thinks she can airbrush talented lifelong friends out of history, and probably thinks she can airbrush herself an Oscar as well.

Girls is a tired, habitually "this'll do" attempt to replicate Single Ladies (which was a glorified ringtone).

Jody has seen it all before. She's got nothing to lose by speaking her mind. That woman is seriously talented... Beyonce might be fat, but her songs make her sound anorexic. The only thing groundbreaking about Beyonce are her T-rex thighs - I blame her for Haiti, no wonder she's got a guilty concience (remember she sang "Haiti" over the chorus of Halo? Vile!).

Beyonce is a legend and will last the ages alongside the likes of Michael Jackson. Jody Watley isn't even good enough to be a has-been as most generations will not know who she is. It takes a nobody to try and attack someone giving their time to create a charity single. If the celebrities in the worl became scared of the backlash of doing charity work, the likes of Haiti, Japan and Afica will forever be deserted.

Nasty G said...

Long live Jody!! Hooray for her honesty. And I think your fake-ass, weak-ass, irritating-as-shit-ass, publicity HOUND Beyonce will one day be as 'dried up' as Queen Watley, so don't speak so soon. Just saying. :) xo

RetroRuler said...

What's next? Hating on Jermaine Stewart!?!?!?

The Music Messiah said...

LMAO! Who is this Jody woman? I'm not hating on her, but that to have that publicity stunt, ironically call the album "The Makeover", and then still let it flop is a bit sad and hilarious! Beyonce's charity single is bound to top the Billboard Hot 100...Bubbling Under Chart! #certifiedsmash

The Music Messiah said...

I meant to say but for her to create that publicity stunt...

shareena said...

Jody Watley helped paved the way for artists like Beyonce as Diana Ross did for her, opening the door a little bit wider each time. I am a fan of both. Jody Watley posed a question and did not comment either way with regards to Beyonce. Whether Jody Watley has or hasn't had a hit recently is besides the point because she's already in the books. No one stays on top forever, and even today's biggest artists will one day have to deal with this fact. Grow up people!

I disagree. Midnight Lounge CD by Jody was easily the best music she has ever done. She continues to grow as an artist. She was and will always be a true diva. Met her once and she could not have been more sincere and down to earth. Not many artists can be 20 years into their career and still producing fresh music as she has.

Your blog post against Jody Watley is a travesty. First of all she is one of the nicest people I have ever met (post concert/signing in NYC) online takes time to acknowledge and thank her fans. She is a self made artist representing for kids from the hood not with certain advantages with a dream whether you old school enough to know that shit or not. I been riding with Jody since the late 70's. She is iconic ALL day and it don't have nothing to do with sales and popularity to those of us who luv her and others in music history. Shalamar legend R&B group further added to the legend whether nigga's know them or not. She emerged from that shit and wasn't even tha lead. Solo DIVA I can't even begin. People wasn't ready for her style and message when she was on HIV and AIDs messaging before it was acceptable and, charity singles and all before it was PR worthy especially for Black folks, abuse when folks and media didn't want to touch it, inclusive for straight or gay and so on, Independent strong woman songs, Rap collaborations, hello Eric B and Rakim, fashion, Madison Avenue tie inswith GAP fashion spreads and so on. It don't matter how many know there will be kids who will ask who is Diana Ross and one day even Bey no matter how great she is now. Jody has nevr primed herself to be mass commercial and if you was a fan you'd know that shit. Her post on Twitter threw No shade on Beyonce whatsoevrr in my view and from the comments others here get it. She asked a question that seemed more about marketing and curiosity there was no tirade and for you to turn into this garbage is moronic and hateful. Shame on you, If you were a real fan you'd know she's been owning and releasing her own music since the 90's, indie not corporate so to me her question made sense and had no opionion at all about Beyonce. As a fan I know The Makeover was not a commercial release but exclusive to Virgin Mega when it was still opened and if memory serves was #1 for them and on ITunes on Electronic /Dance, you ain't no fan so stop it fucking loser.
Jody opened the door wider for Beyonce as Bey will for those that follow. One day she will be older and out of fashion too. Ask Ms Ross or Tina Turner, no less iconic but father time gets all eventually
I agree with annonymous and really dug Midnight Lounge one of her best "Clouds" fits this damn post
SMDH Good Riddance to YOU

Dear Pop Trash Addicts, Um, who are YOU exactly what;s in your resume, lol? What are YOUR acheivements beyond this free blog? I'll wait.
Your diss would render Jody dried up but how on earth did you even be tapped in on her tweets in that event? JLMBAO

Team Jody Watley all day. Cue When A Man Loves A Woman for some real artistry and empowering message one of many after she slayed with the groundbreaking fashion and Pop music. So she did a music 360 true Jody fans love her for the truth she always is,hater mofo. Jody never been the fame obsessed is my take. The Makeover faux plastic surgery if you bought the album and read the liner notes like I did at the Virgin Megastore back in 06 indie noncommercial exclusive and #1 instore was her commentary satire on youth obsessed culture and what people do to stay young she wrote about and spoke on if you been a true Jody fan you'd know she always been smart and on the introspective tip and never sold her soul to the corporate world to sell some damn records. Jody Watley "has been" an inspiration and icon to a lot of us for a long time and has been doing the damn thing her own way and one of the few sistahs to do that. You talk about charity, Jody has done it for decades and real talk ain't used the gays as a marketing angle and all. Nowadays people even do charity shit for press don;t get it twisted. Foh using a diss Jody to get blog hits lame ass you ain't never gone reach her achivements Drink dat haterade

First of all, let me bid y'all in Watleyville a good day....... and for the Watley hater, Miss Mike? I'll be eating you a new asshole soon enough. In fact, let's get this dance started now, and I hope you've brought plenty of dimes! Out of your daddy's high sperm count of two, you beat out number one just to come and disrupt us here in Watleyville for a question that was asked, and not stated, but you, and others like you choose to jump on this band wagon of retarded batch of buzzing bees that got their stingers of socket to rant on a topic that never exist. I'm so happy that the life span of killer bees is just threes weeks longer that a housefly.What you ma'phuckers need to do, is pick up the phone and dial 1-800-MYBAD and apologize to Miss Watley. You said, and I quote "Looking for a new love"is one of my all time favourite jams and Larger Than Life is flawless - beginning to end. I even continued buying your albums when the hits dried up about... 20 years ago because I'm loyal to my faves regardless of their has-been status. But I'm out." A single and one album never proved loyality to Jody. you were just a music listener, not a fan. And if a collection of two is all you have ownersip you possess, then I agree with you that it's best yo' ass kick rocks and see your way out. Jody never implied Beyonce' was OPPORTUNISTIC, she post a question.... but I will imply it...yes! It's clearly what she is and that was the perfect platform and opportunity for her (and she did) to take advantage of other's painful situation for her own self greed. Remember , we're speaking of the same woman, your queen that swiftly dispatched her former singing partners for fame and glory on the expense of their backs. All you worker bee-bitches in that bee hive need to GPS your way back to reality. And how dare you call Jody, and other veteran artists such a putrid name when your queen is gradually backing her way into the parking lot of "WHO'S NEXT" so, you and the bee stingers, or who ever the phuck you bitches are slated to be need to close down shop and move to a new colony because there a new queen in town, and the world's gone ga ga over this Lady (to be continued)

Cherri Pye said...

To be honest, your queen hasn't flown the wave of success since her surgically enhanced hit "Single ladies" so you bitches over there may need to whip out your measuring tape and size your queen for her Court gesture suit and remove the crown from her lace-front mop-top, because in truth, she's been demoted. So, as queen bee (with her airbrushed, unseasoned trite of talent) is circling the parking lot of "WHO NEXT," make sure the inscription of her Derion sash reads in bright colors HAS-BEEN. Beyonce's purpose for releasing the single was never for the entrust for charity as much as it was for her FAILING RECORD SALES of lately. Though you bee stingers fail to accept, SINGLE LADIES was what THRILLER was for Michale Jackson..... minus her record sales. Lol. I must make an amendment to your fowl statement about the MAKEOVER. The CD did chart. Maybe not as high as her previous CD (like Beyonce), but charted just the same on Billboards and Virgin records mega list. You're out thrashing out insults but I'd like to ask you

when was your, or those spin offs from cockroaches with wings you call killer bees last hit? Do you, or any of your slave ants have more than a 1,000 followers on twitter? Until you, or any of you bee stinger companion from your dying colony can take a break from sucking the honey from the ass of your queen to create a life of your own instead of portraying yourself as her FREE P.R. agent, and not receiving your fair 15 percentage, you can't say shit to damage Jody's status. She's work her way into position as a Legend from pure talent, not lyp-syncing her way through a concert, gyrating her way through every choreographed dance step, needing the assistance of near bareness to appeal to an audience that loves up until your last hit and no then longer, attempting to win an Oscar from pretending you helped write a song as your fans LISTEN to the Academy speak to the media "Miss Knowles did not assist in composing the tune so keep DREAMING GIRL," all the while being sued by a former friend as he pushes her TO THE LEFT, telling her yes, Miss bee, you think you're not IRREPLACEABLE, so until you present a factual conception that Beyonce's a creative artist, then I'll remove all doubts of her talent, but until then, I view her as another Cheryl Burke. Just a dancer. From the imprudent irrational declarations you asserted made against Jody me believed you were conceived on the side of the highway.... where most accidents have occurred!
