Hi Ms. Sandra, I hope you’ve had a marvelous week! I’m contacting you because I have a few words to share with you, if you care to read.
I’ve been a fan of your blog for a while now because I sincerely value your opinion and your writing style. But, I have to say that over the past few months you have only been able to hurt my heart so much only because I love your site so dearly.
It’s no new fact that you and many people are no big fans of Beyonce, but lately your attacks against her seem more spiteful and hurtful from a deeper place. In NO way do I mean to criticize but you being a successful African-African woman, I don’t see why you have to spend so much of your time hating her and praising Kelly when both are supportive of each other, beyond what the media recognizes. I don’t want to spend my time defending her but I just don’t understand why she receives so much hate from SR. Beyonce has even promoted Kelly’s album and she still receives spite.
Only because of you did I purchase Kelly Rowland’s album this past Wednesday, but if I had read the crtics’ reviews first I certainly would not have. The album is very shallow and almost every song is about sex; no growth or originality like the critics said…so I gave it away to a friend on Thursday. I will continue supporting Kelly because I want her to be successful but in no way can she become an international “superstar” with this album or her one hit. Only a London superstar as you said.
I love you sister and I hope you weren’t offended by this message but as a loyal reader, I had to share this with you as I find myself drowning in hate when I visit SR nowadays.
I’m praying that God gives you a softer heart and that you sow more seeds of positivity. Even though you have thousands of other readers, I’m going to take a short break from reading your site for a while for a mental cleansing.
Much love sister,
