Dating – Are Gold Digger’s a Thing of the Past?
Dating Gold Diggers: Are Gold Diggers a Thing of the Past??
“Neyo’s Miss Independent YouTube Video”
Okay I’m sure by now, we’ve all heard Jamie Foxx’s “Gold Digger” song with Kanye West… “Get down girl, go head get down!” It’s quite hilarious and it’s a song that had us all shaking our bums on the dance floor… “Now I aint’s sayin she a golddigger, but she ain’t messing wit no broke …”
So it makes you wonder, are Gold Diggers here to stay or are they becoming a thing of the past? I choose to believe the latter. The song featured above “Miss Independent” by Ne yo talks about his respect for this gal who’s got it going for herself…and my fav of all fav’s is a rap song by Webbie, to which I couldn’t find the YouTube for, but it’s called “I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T”! I’m sure most gals loooove these songs as they are quite empowering for us ladies.
In LA, there was always this thing of the typical wealthy guy browsing around with a gorgeous lady on his arm to which we all knew… “Yup, he’s rich and she’s his lil’ Golddigger!” Sometimes it wasn’t even worth mentioning because it’s was so freakin obvious! However, as much as people discussed their annoyance with this, they typically failed to forget about the group of women who were just the opposite.
One of the things that I love about Hollywood, is you now have women who are Producers, Directors and owning their own in the Entertainment Industry. These ladies are making it happen and are the movers and shakers. Think about it..does the name Beyonce or Oprah ring a bell? Yes, these gals are our modern day Ayn Rand’s and Scarlett O’Hara’s (okay overlook Scarlett’s flaws..when everyone went hungry, this gal got the job done!).
There is steadily a new breed of women on the horizon, women who are continually pushing forward and pushing beyond the boundaries. Who would’ve thought that a woman would take a shot at running for President of the United States of America? And this is just the beginning, I’m prepared to see much more of this in the future.
So ladies, let me encourage to continue expanding your goals and vision for yourself… no longer do women have to lean on their beauty and sexuality alone, to make things happen. Women are now using their minds and giftings to see their worlds blossom into a grandiose adventure! I look forward to the day when the term “Gold Digger” becomes a thing of the past!
