Opinion: Indecent Dressing As A New Fashion Trend For Nigerian Ladies

Its no more news that “modernization” (Or Westernization) has reached Africa, but the question is, “Is Africa ready for “modernization”? I really can’t speak for the whole of Africa but I am quite sure I could speak on behalf of a few smart Nigerians. Today, let’s have a look at what “brand” of fashion, “modernization” has brought along, especially with the ladies. Let’s have a look at this trend. Does a lady really need to dress “indecently”, in order to be “trendy”?

Modernization brought along a whole lot of changes and for the love of all that is holy, “modernization” is still evolving, with new trends every day! I would explain: If you watch a 60s video (or magazine), you would notice its remarkably different from what you get when you watch an 80s video. While in the 60s, we were cool with Gilligan’s Island, we had to deal with Baywatch in the 80s. BAM!! Semi-Nudity hit us square in the face, right out of nowhere.

These days, it’s not unusual to find a girl half naked walking down the streets, or a lady bucket naked, having a drink in a party and dressed on something completely transparent. Sure, this is exactly how far we have come. “Fashion morality” is pretty much at its lowest ebb, for lack of a better word, maybe we should say “rock bottom”. Why would a woman just decide to step out in public, dressed in her birthday suit is certainly beyond reasoning.

In defence of this alarming trend, most ladies claim its “sexy”! I don’t get it, so some random bloke sees 90% of your titties and compliments you by saying, “You look gorgeous”… Who told you that you can’t look good if you dress properly! Thinking you look sexy by dressing half naked is a complete insult to your thinking and an abuse to women in general.

Trust me, no sane smart Nigerian guy would like to get married to a loose chick, let alone one who with an appalling reputation for her style of dressing, none. Even if they are blinded by what they see, the average Nigerian mother-in-law has got pretty keen eye sight… Perhaps too keen! So after years of indecent dressing and no husband, these girls wind up in some random church, fighting the devil for their callous mistakes.

The average man is born promiscuous and if a guy marries you strictly on the grounds that he sees lots of tits or your fanciful butt, then trust me, as soon as he sees a firmer pair of tits and tighter butt, your marriage might be Gone with the Wind! So you might want to do yourself a favour and start dressing decently, trust me, the right guy will come along.

There are also some who take it up a notch by taking photos of their cleavages and posting them over social media, just to attract petty attention or perhaps, a little more likes on Facebook on Instagram. In my opinion, you guys are the biggest losers. Trust me, you would get the likes, a few one night stands after a few bottles of champagne, but most likely with no spouse.

Let me remind you that anything that goes on the net, never really leaves the net. When you have these “semi-pornographic” pictures of yourself all over the web, some sick, deluded bloke would probably have them saved somewhere and even if you take them down, they have a funny way of showing up when you least expect. Hell, if Kim K’s porno clip is still available for download all over the web, who do you think you are?

If some absurd friend tells you its all good and that its what’s hot in the society now, then you are probably keeping bad company. If you post semi-nude pictures of yourself on the internet, you are even worse than a stripper. Because, when you think of it, the stripper is probably grinding for tips, after all its her job. While you would be snapping half naked for “likes” and “compliments”. It’s not a job, so no one pays you, the stripper gets paid at the end of the day. So who is worse off?

The same goes out to every video vixen out there. If you are going to dress indecently and start shaking your booty on screen for the world to see, at least get paid properly for your shameful effort. However, the best you can actually hope for is to be some rich brat’s play thing. Like the lady trying to steal Musa from Sister Caro. I haven’t seen the tramp in a while!

One day, we might also talk about the guys who are thrilled by the disgusting act of having their trousers pulled down to reveal their ridiculous pairs of boxer shorts, as a trend and a basis for knowing how the average male’s self-esteem has reached its lowest ebb, for lack of a better word, maybe we should say “rock bottom”.

Nigeria isn’t ready for this kind of development, because there are still a lot of us whose parents once taught them how to tie our shoes straight and would like to pass on the virtues of good dressing to the next generation.

Teen Choice Awards 2016 Winners List

Justin Timberlake was honoured with the first ever Decade award at last night’s Teen Choice Awards.

The award was presented to the singer during the ceremony at The Forum in Los Angeles, which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Chloe Moretz in attendance.

Timberlake, 35, referenced boxing great Muhammad Ali in his speech and urged teenagers to “be part of the solution, not part of the problem”.

He said: “Muhammad Ali fought in the ring, but he fought for peace, too. And he became the heavyweight champion of the world because, as we all know, he could float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”

The SexyBack star also said he hoped his one-year-old son, Silas, “watches this one day”, adding: “Go out, do the impossible and go on and become the greatest generation yet.”

Timberlake has won a total of 23 Teen Choice Awards during his career, and earlier this year presented Bryant with an Icon Award at a major sporting awards ceremony.

Game Of Thrones To End After Season Eight In 2018

Game of Thrones – the record-breaking fantasy drama TV series – will end after its eighth season, American broadcaster HBO has confirmed.

HBO programming chief Casey Bloys made the announcement at the Television Critics Association’s conference.

The seventh season – made up of seven episodes instead of the usual 10 – is expected in summer next year, while the final season will be in 2018.

Game of Thrones is based on novels written by George R R Martin.

Now the programme has overtaken the source material, meaning producers are telling a story no-one has read before.

Speaking on Saturday in Beverly Hills, California, Mr Bloys said the number of episodes for the final season was yet to be determined.

“We’ll take as many as the (producers) will give us,” he said.

Mr Bloys did not rule out a spin-off, saying that “we’re open to it, (the producers) aren’t opposed to it, but there’s no concrete plans right now”.

Last year, Game of Thrones won a record 12 Emmy Awards for a series in a single year.

The series has picked up 23 nominations – another record – ahead of this year’s annual ceremony to be held in September.

 

 

Jaden Smith Says He Wears Skirts to Combat Bullying

Child actor and musician-turned-model Jaden Smith, the 17-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, opens up about his dress-wearing modeling career in Nylon fashion and beauty magazine’s first ever male cover issue.

Smith says he’s wearing women’s clothing and normalizing the fashion trend now so that future generations of young boys who wear dresses won’t be bullied by their peers.

“So, you know, in five years when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him,” The Karate Kid star told the magazine. “I’m taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren’t expected before my time.”

Personally, I find it rather puzzling to consider the fact that “future generations of young boys”, would like to wear skirts! Has Jaden seen the future and discovered that skirts would soon become “trendy” amoung young boys? Or is he trying to start a trend, where young boys would look trendy in skirts?

Either way, One thing is certain to me, this is one weird young man

Jeffree Star & Kat Von D In More Internet Drama

Just over ten years ago, Jeffree Star uploaded a video onto MySpace, which has since been deleted, that includes another drag queen who is dressed in “blackface”. In this supposedly “satirical” video Jeffree is heard saying that he wants to throw battery acid on an African-American woman to lighten her face so it matches her foundation.

This isn’t Jeffree Star’s first run-in with the black community on social media. Drama erupted between Jeffree and Make Up by Shayla after a comment was misinterpreted at a beauty event in Las Vegas. The drag star took to Snapchat to slate Shayla in what he thought was a “professional” manner, to which she responded back. He also launched a personal attack on her via a string of horrendous tweets calling her a man, a fake, and threatening to beat her up.

Just when you thought the Internet had called a day on the Jeffree Star racist accusations, recent drama has brought him straight back into the limelight. Jeffrey has been slammed as a racist on a number of occasions and has been known to spread his negativity as well as allegedly bullying YouTubers.

It recently came to our attention that Kat Von D had publicly denounced her friendship with Jeffree Star. Following recent events, the model/tattoo artist has felt it only necessary to cut all ties with alleged racist Jeffree.

There are those who believe that the past belongs in the past, however some of us refuse to forgive and forget. For Kat Von D, this was the right time to cut one’s losses. She publicly shared a statement via social media explaining her reasons for this and now wishes to disassociate herself from anything Jeffree Star related.

Rumours have been flying about as to what caused this friendship to suddenly end and it comes as no surprise that brand rivalry is one of them. Jeffree Star was introduced to many people through Kat and has since then built a career for himself as a singer and makeup artist. In 2014 he released his own cosmetics brand- Jeffree Star Cosmetics – which has skyrocketed his career.

In a similar vein, Kat also has her own line- famed for its liquid lipsticks and eyeliner- and people have been speculating over whether the pair are full on rivals or whether some major has gone on behind the scenes.

What followed was that Jeffree was all over Twitter.

So much Drama.
