    I'm loving her post menopausal hair cut. This the cut the mature women get when they don't want all that hair on their head.

  • LibraGirlonly

    SANdra what is going in with this bog? It's freezing like crazy.

  • stav

    This is all I see when I look at that terrible wig/quickweave ..whatever it is! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c8d2084a6ff478de296322bf02c90a89e7448f38236fb2a5e0ac0caa339d943.jpg

  • Libra80sBaby

    I dont like this blonde on her...it ages her drastically

  • 19awesomegrl97

    i agree

  • Libra80sBaby

    Now this look cute and she dont look old because of the filters/photoshop

  • 19awesomegrl97

    i have seen her wit some gorgeous hair styles however this is not 1 of them

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt
  • Valerie D. Henderson

    Damn, dry and over processed...

  • Valerie D. Henderson

    Now that style softens her face.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This look ages her IMO.

  • Justlooknout

    I keep swiping right for another hairstyle, that is NOT the business.

  • imright

    i really wish Monica would just let this blonde go ????

  • Justlooknout

    That is shonuff a WHIG

  • Libra80sBaby

    and that filter does too

  • Renee26

    She's so cute!

  • Tiffany Miller

    Short cuts are supposed to take years off of you.

  • Tiffany Miller

    It's very late 40's early 50's dating a younger man

  • Renee26

    Petty! LMAO

  • Renee26

    Yes!

  • Benjamin
  • Guess Who

    LOL

  • Thismessismessy

    Didnt she just have braids to her ays the other day? And I hate coats half on half off. Pet peeve. Finally, we ever getting new music from her? Yes? No?

  • Guess Who

    Not a fan of this chick at all but I give ATL props for keeping her relevant in their city. I also like the fact she has not succumb to azz shots.

  • Libra80sBaby

    as skinty as she is...She BET not

  • Libra80sBaby

    I hate them big tattoos on women's arms and legs.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Lmbo I'm crying

  • Shira Harding-James

    I can not stand this blonde on her!!

  • Rayne

    Love her just not that rat top blonde wig.

  • Benjamin

    For me it depends on the look, but Monica carries it really well, I love it on her. The same with Mary J. Blige and Keshia Cole as well.

  • T3

    Me too ?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well, I actually like the short blonde look on her. But she is starting to look her age. I guess all those years of keeping up mess and staying in drama finally caught up to her. Real industry folks and people who really KNOW Monica the person, not Monica the singer, know what I'm talking about.

    I'm glad she's still getting on stage but this girl is one of the most two faced people I have ever met in my life lol. I hope she's maturing from that because Lord knows she has lost a ton of devoted friends who've been down with her from the beginning because of her unpredictable, shyt starting, duplicitous mess.

    But I wish her well.

  • Carrington

    Wait... so Monica is a superstar and Beyonce' is a lounge singer and Rihanna is a has been? Is that what I'm to understand?

  • Libra80sBaby

    Now I do see this in her.

  • Carrington

    Brandy, dasshu, guh? LOL Nah, but for real, I kinda believe this because her thought process seems to be a little bit off to me. Like the way the beef between her and Brandy started... you're mad and wanted to fight because you were filming a video for a song called, "The boy is MINE" and you were adversaries in the song and you slapped her hand and wanted to fight because she put her hand in your face while ACTING during the video? Oh.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Brandy has TRIED to say this MANY times, but folks want to believe Brandy just hating on Monica

  • Anunnaki

    yes on this BLOG ONLY

  • Justlooknout

    Cackles

  • MissyJ

    Monica mess that was made public was a hawt mess.. Walking off stage, getting attitudes with roadies, producers, diva behavior so I can only imagine what she is like that they've kept from us.
    Secondly she real preachy.. most preachy folks were or a still the biggest heathens rofl

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Monica is a mess lol. She knows she's a mess. I shared this on here before but I'mma be messy and share it again. A few years back, there used to be an industry event that a friend of mine had a hand in and it drew a lot of Atlanta celebrities on the regular and it was really a lot of laid back,
    unpretentious fun.

    Until Monica got too involved in it. Then it was he say she say, he say he say and just a lot of mess and the thing ended up being canceled permanently. All because of her mess. LOL, Lawd bless this chile, she has a very turbulent spirit and she routinely shyts on lifetime friends.

    I was shocked she started talking so much about Jesus because I was starting to think she was possessed.

  • Libra80sBaby

    How she gone be preachy when her underaged ass was trolloping with C- Murder old ass back in the day??

  • V Dubb

    Chile...all of that tea. Now this is one I've been suspect of but never had any receipts. You do have tea!!!!! The Bigelow tea with cane sugah!!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    ...And his family couldn't stand her. ESPECIALLY one particular family member. But Monica wasn't no fool--she knew better than to run up on C's sister.

  • ???TheRider???

    That along with the pancake #9.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    She wasn't always preachy like that; but she has always been arrogant and messy.

    I used to think people were lying on her when some shyt would jump off and she'd be in the middle of it. I might be revealing too much but I got caught up in some he say she say mess with her a long time ago and I was done with her. I don't play like that.

    Monica will put your business in the streets honey.

    Sandra knows I am telling the truth LOL.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • Taylordanes

    yeah it looks so trashy in evening gowns

  • Taylordanes

    this one looks good

  • Quitedeliteful

    In an interview once Monica said she can get down and take it there and beyond if she has to...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Monica, as always, looks beautiful -- and I'm loving that diamond ring!!!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Honey, my friend can't stand Monica to this day. I'm giving y'all some very serious clues by the way.

    I could go on and on but Monica has trouble with staying true to longtime, close friends. And do not tell her your business, I can't say that enough.

    She'll put YOU business in the streets but tries to eep her shyt hush hush. Lol, she's THAT kinda girl.

  • IAmLegend

    That wig looks terrible

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Monica is talented; I think she's a better singer than Beyonce and definitely Rihanna. But she has a very bad attitude and outlook, but that's reserved for her closest friends. She's very nice to strangers.

  • IAmLegend
  • IAmLegend

    Her last album barely a year old

  • IAmLegend

    LMFAOOOOOOOO

  • Anunnaki

    Right I remember My X told me that some mess popped off about an female he knew. from College park. (creeping With) yea. I know her history

  • Junkanoo

    Usually I love Monicias style but that wig needs to be burned

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Honey, Monica will stab you in the back and you won't even know you're bleeding. She switches out against you for no reason at all.

    Its kind of amazing. And she's fell out with EVERYBODY close to her. Monica is a MESS!!! Lol, she really is.

  • Anunnaki

    Thats cause of her parents.. other than that she messy as hell

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Chile.....that ?was the first thing I noticed!! ?

  • Gi Milan

    Monica just take the coat off already

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Chile...lol...C-Murder could write a complete novel on Monica, but he won't--that's not his style. She was not a good fit for the Miller family either, and C-Murder was not gonna be a man to be tamed--least of all by Monica.

    Monica comes completely undone at the THOUGHT of a man cheating on her. She refuses to accept the fact that any man with a dyck between his legs is capable of cheating, I don't care who you are or think you are. Ain't no puzzy made of platinum.

    Monica thinks she can control people and situations and that's one of the reasons why she ends up in drama. That and all that sneaky, two faced mess she likes to engage in. She's quick to act as if she's above something and she likes to dismiss people like they are beneath her. A mess honey.

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Lol!! I'm laughing cause that's why I got mine cut slam off??

  • Quitedeliteful

    This truly confirms that you cannot judge a book by its cover. Monica looks classy but I'm guessing she'll cut a bytch in a minute! LOLLOLLOL!!!! Her and Whitney Houston -- classy looking but messy...

  • Anunnaki

    oh I know, she was younfer than me, but my X- his sister was cool with tiny, so back in the day at M.D collins chile chile chile...lol

  • Ra

    Wow People kill me talking like they live with this lady and know her character so well its crazy

  • V Dubb

    Seems like everybody messy and full of drama have found God now. Lololol I can't take it yo

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Yes that rock is absolutely gorgeous. I love a nice solitaire diamond. Classy!

  • dontgetblocked

    I thought she was in nursing school. Whatever happened to that? She stays doing interviews and singing at games...for no reason. She really isn't relevant anymore.

  • Benjamin

    For no reason? Being a singer is her career, her job. Btw, she stays booked doing shows from state to state. You're not a fan so you wouldn't be informed on that, but now you know.

  • Benjamin

    You do realize she was 17 then. People do mature and change.

  • Benjamin

    People do change and mature, and Monica has done just that.

  • Benjamin

    People mature and change, Monica has done that, as i'm sure you have as well.

    As for Brandy, she is beyond shady herself, and definitely not one to talk, because in the last yr, she has shaded Bey, Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, Keshia Epps, Niecy Nash, Kim Parker..and the list goes on.

  • Benjamin

    Girl Monica was young, and people do change as they mature, and Monica has definitely done that.

  • bemetoo

    Monica has a bad attitude???

  • Benjamin

    It's obvious she's definitely matured though.

  • Benjamin

    I've met Monica twice, and that's far from the truth. I have even been to her concerts where she's greeted fan's, and she is so humble and sweet.

    As for peter, he or she is forever posting shady propaganda about celebrities.

  • Benjamin

    Exactly.

  • BlackFeeMale

    I love that Monica can still perform. She has a large loyal fanbase, can sing her a$$ off and her music is timeless. A true rnb superstar. Her clothes stay on, no diva drama, and looks good doin it!

  • BlackFeeMale

    I thought riri was her gurlfriend in her mind! You know how sandra is. One day the sky is blue the next its green. ?

  • BlackFeeMale

    Starting to look her age! Women cant catch a break. Thats cold you must be a man ? but do u know y her n rocko broke up? Inalways wanted to know. They looked good together-no disrespect to her husband

  • Psychic Lulu

    Yep. She's textbook passive aggressive with a shot of narcissism.

  • pure_rachet

    Don't forget insecurity!

  • pure_rachet

    Are you using CTRL V??

  • Luv Pitties

    Please spill the tea to specifics because there was another guy I think Man I just don't care couldn't stand her

  • Luv Pitties

    Damn lol

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Monica is beautiful, and talented. She has a smile that lights up a room.

  • Lisa daniels

    Them old lady church wigs. I agree

  • Lisa daniels

    Heard her on the radio a few weeks ago and she said she been known to throw hexes on people. Her , Ti , Tigger and Wanda Smith were talking their top five movies and Monica say that after saying why she likes Eves Bayou

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Peter is a he, and Peter has known Monica for over 20 years. Please don't compare a momentary photo op you saw one or two times to that.

    I think I was clear that Monica is wonderful to strangers; she saves her messiness for her friends.

    If I post it, then it is what it is. I don't sugarcoat.

    Sorry your feelings are hurt but you'll be OK.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL. I like Monica. I just don't like many of her ways.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I'm just being honest. Monica has lost that innocence that helped push her to the top. Now she just looks like any other chick you see at the West End Mall...

    I like Rocko but he's not a one woman man. He likes to run the streets and he loves to be somewhere up in the hood with a crowd of ghetto ass negroes smoking weed.

    Monica wanted Rocko to be something he is not.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    No argument here

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Monica has always been cute, and she has always tried to present herself as a lady. No doubt about that. But she has her issues. We all do though.

    But you gotta be real with your friends.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh OK.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    LOL. I was thinking the same thing.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    She's always been cute, funny and sassy.

  • speakinmymind

    Shady as hail..."supposed to"??

  • Benjamin

    Sorry Peter, my feelings are far from hurt. You on the other hand have a tendency of running your mouth like a gossiping old queen on celebrities you claim to know. It's definitely not a good look, especially someone of your age.

    With that said,..relax.

  • Benjamin

    If it relates, why not?

  • rayne215

    Monica is on auntie status. never thought id see the day

  • Pamela

    Ms Dionne favors Whitney Houston so much. I believe they are blood related?

  • Junkanoo

    I wish this blond trend would just die am over it

  • datATLboi

    Is this what she's been reduced to now? I can't

  • pure_rachet

    LMAO i gots my eye on you.

  • Sexy CJ

    Nice !!!!.......She Is Very Photogenic......

  • T Kenny

    the hair makes her look like shes about 60 years old. a good i take care of myself 60, but 60 none the less.

  • MsPam

    Only thing she's missing is the Newport cigarettes

  • Enoughsaid2020

    That's what I love about her.

  • solange jones

    That wig is turrible......

  • gntory

    W/all the money Monica has & the best she can do is wear a $20 Milky Way 27 pieces quick weave...??

  • darealQueenNefertiti

    You silly for that!! It's looks super synthetic and stiff!?

  • Nini

    Monica had a beautiful voice but it's a church voice and we hear those every Sunday. That heavy voice doesn't sell like these other voices. I've wondered for a long time why her songs never catch on as hits, after her younger years. I always end up liking like 3 of her songs on 14 track album. I'm good?.... but she is attractive and seems humble. But then again like I said why hasnt her career jumped off

  • BlackFeeMale

    Thanks.

  • Luv Pitties

    I like her also she seems to have a good spirit and I love her voice but she makes it point to show that ring off in her pics though lol

  • MsChocCookie

    Superstar? I missed that memo. More like hood star singer. Monica never quite blew up properly. On the other hand, her arch rival Brandy, was a Superstar, Unfortunately,she's now a washed up Superstar, I guess? lol....

  • 4RGSpot

    Hair color makes her look so much older. Nice pic of her though.

  • Kayke

    Stop with the blonde already, Monica.

  • Bubba

    Used to be friends with the Rapper Foxy Brown, Rapper Mia X, Ciara, Keyshia Cole etc, etc. I love Monica, but there no smoke without a fire, something is fake about her.....Her & rapper Mia X were bestfriends, Mia X has cancer, no Monica post or picture since the fallout.

  • SweetsJunkie

    When was the fallout with Mia X?

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Oooo NO! Take that wig OFF! That blond thing makes her look like dionne warwick.

  • TheMove

    I love Mo's eyebrows!

  • TheMove

    *Crying* LOL

  • SunRiseBlossom

    HOLLERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
