Update: Check out my exclusive interview with Rasheeda here!
I have seen about half of season one of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta – I will admit it despite my disdain for reality television. I really just miss good acting and sitcoms, but ya know good luck to the ladies who actually HAVE talent and aren’t acting completely foolish. Even though I haven’t caught every single episode, I feel like I know exactly what is going on because of Twitter! lol. In any event, I’ve been crushing on quite a few of the ladies’ hairstyles – K. Michelle’s red bob, Erica’s wavy sew-in and her short cut with her real hair (love them BOTH!), Mimi’s weave and Rasheeda’s hair…actually her EVERYTHING!!! I mean her hair is so shiny and long and black! I know I can’t be the only one who looked extra hard the episodes she wore it cornrowed straight to the back to see if it was a lace wig or real. Sidenote: Rasheeda…nobody over age 8 is doing cornrows with zig zag parts anymore. Nobody. Braid straight back, on an angle, whatever just no more zig zag! In last week’s episode she rocked a few high buns with her naturally curly texture that made me say to myself with certainty – that is her hair and it is absolutely gorgeous! So of course I googled and found Rasheeda’s vlog channel where she uploaded a video talking about her ethnicity and hair. What I really loved is that she didn’t brag on her amazing hair while putting others down as some similarly status celebs do on the regular, she stated it was hers, did a close up with her wash n’ go and admitted to not always loving spending hours coiffing it! Check it out for yourselves:
Being from New Jersey, I’ll also admit that while I knew who Rasheeda was I really am not very familiar with her music as I don’t like southern rap music at all. But – and this is one of those songs I’m kind’ve ashamed to admit I like so much – I have been known to walk around singing “Put it on ‘em make him wanna marry me!” Complete with hip movements! And for that you may absolutely judge me! I would, lol!
