It's Been 7 Hours and 15 Days...

Not quite, but I have been MIA for a few days. It's been really crazy busy lately and BabyBro and his girlfriend drove up to the Island from K-town on Friday. They left five hours ago and I already miss them. I really miss my BabyBro. His visits are always too short.

He makes me so proud. Not only is he finishing up university (only to further his university career even more), he works at one of K-town's busiest eateries (to help pay for his school, rent, living expenses)and is involved in a lot of extra-curricular activities.

BabyBro was telling me about his university's TV program (run entirely by the students). There's a student at the university (Meagan Taylor) whose father had given her a million dollars to make her own music video, Rojo Caliente. Now, a lot of people (mostly her peers) have criticized her, so I checked out her music video on YouTube to see what all the fuss was about. BabyBro says that she's Queen's TV's most popular hit (Most popular hit as in generating the most hits on the internet and not in reference to how much people love her).

I was reading some of the comments people wrote. Some people can be so mean! I wasn't wowed by her music or the video, but wouldn't say anything mean about the girl. I love reggaeton and think that my cousin is a million times better than Rojo. Some have said that she (Meagan aka Rojo Caliente) could have done a lot more with the million dollars than use it to make a video. I can think of a lot of things I'd do with a million dollars.

Diesel and some of the witty members of the Humor-Blogs gang have launched a weekly online humor magazine. Gah! It feels weird to write "humor" and not "humour". I think these guys (and gals) are hilarious. Check them out ;)

Check out who the Business Manager is for Queen's TV :)

That's right, people! It's none other than BabyBro!

Maybe she would have gotten better press if she could have done it on a shoe string, raised money, and given it to a good, local cause.
Have I mentioned how handsome baby bro is?

It's terrible that people think they can judge whatever they want whenever they want - some people are clearly uneducated as well... but it's the life when they get themselves in the spotlight. You have to take the good with the bad, I guess.

You know what they say - bad publicity is good publicity.

I agree. I was amazed to see how many hits the video got. I was even more amazed to see the comments. It must be hard for her to know what people think of her. However, she chose the route to stardom, so she has to take the publicity (good and bad).

Baby Bro is cute, isn't he? I luv him :) When I was in university, he was in elementary school. There's a huge age gap between the two of us and we're very close. I was like his second mom.

That is so true! Bad publicity is good publicity. I wonder if the people who give her such a hard time realize that she's only 18.
