    Hi Aisha,

    I decided to start a blog after reading yours. I am dueling with a film company that used my script for a movie against my will. If you’d like to chat, please drop me a line.

    Aisha Girl!
    I am the child of a Jamaican mother and I can’t tell you how much I am praying for you! Just because Madonna is extremely famous doesn’t mean she is talented, smart or pretty. Some people are famous and they deserve it MOST DO NOT. Madonna is one of these individuals. I wouldn’t put it past her – she is a capitalist to the core. She doesn’t care about music. It’s all about popularity. The world is in a “high school” mental state. Chantal Kreviazuk is a Canadian singer I adore but she is no where nearly as famous as Madonna but she has WAAAAAAAAY more talent and is a far superior mother! People should judge by character, not by fame, status, wealth or any other superficial means of identification. Janet, though I love her, is a weak singer, but a great dancer, Britney is another Madonna-esque type and not talented at all. But just because Britney is famous doesn’t mean she’s “great”. Not all teachers, doctors can be trusted but people are so stupid as to just believe whoever is famous is RIGHT. Aisha, if you are not blessed with earthly rewards in this life – know this – you will be blessed with plenty in the next. Madonna should be ashamed of herself.
