Provoking Thoughts: VH1’s ‘Single Ladies’ Tackles Marriage/Kids

Given how deliciously atrocious the acting it, I’ve found myself absolutely sucked into the VH1 scripted TV show, Single Ladies. If you follow me on Twitter you already know how obsessed I am as I “live tweet” every episode each week. (Sorry lol)

I usually find that I identify with Val, the fabulous Stacey Dash’s character. She’s conservative when it comes to dating, and a hopeless romantic. She wants to be swept off her feet by Prince Charming and will accept nothing less than that.

Well, this season, she started dating an older man who pretty much appears perfect. The young’uns on Twitter freaked out on this as if Stacey is a spring chicken. She’s in her mid-40s, folks! And nobody was all “ew, Demi Moore is so old & gross. Why is Ashton with her?” Some of these young’uns think 30 is old, so I dismiss that group and their corresponding opinions.

ANYWAY… aside from being loaded, he’s a southern gentleman who is down to take things slow and treats Val like a princess. The problem lies after Jerry catches Val trying on a wedding dress for a friend. He saw how her eyes lit up and realizes he needs to discuss “marriage” with her. Val is excited, but Jerry aint bringin’ nuttin’ but bad news, sistagirl!

How Hot Is Beyonce?

No, I mean it. She is totally smokin’ in her new video for “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”, is she not?

I was literally like “DAYUM!” watching it. When I first heard this single, I was kinda “meh” about it. However, I like her “If I Were A Boy” a lot. “Single Ladies” is one of those songs where the video makes me like it. It’s simple, low budget, and wonderfully choreographed. And Bee’s body is ON POINT! Work it, Sasha!

Having said all that, it’s not a video I really want to see more than a couple of times. When I saw it on MTV2 today, during what I thought was a commercial break, I was like “Wait…what??” I thought it was a promo thing. I guess when you release two singles at once, you can afford to have one video be a cheap-o. Still, she looks great!

Oh, and peep her video for “If I Were A Boy”. The video is very well done and goes along with the song perfectly. I can see this song doing as well as “Irreplaceable”. It’s that good.
