those words rang true twice this year so far. Both Jay Bowdy and Nakia Venant committed suicide on FB LIVE as family, friends and lurkers sat and watched, helpless. Unaware that there was even an issue.
I was deeply saddened by the events because I had written “One Last Cry”, but never recorded it. I keep wondering what if I had released it … maybe they could’ve stumbled across it on Facebook or youtube or spotify before they made that final, fatal decision. Maybe the lyrics would resonate with them and help them continue to fight for their lives.
Well I won’t sit by and wait any longer. I hope and pray this song will help at least one person continue to fight for their lives and happiness.
“If you hear me, screaming. Help me! I’m pleading” …

all dressed up, looking bomb, getting ready to do a whole lot of “NOTHING”?!?! Are you the type to get cute just to go the mailbox? Do you get all dolled up to go live on Facebook or for a random stop at the grocery? *raises hand slowly* lol, but don’t be ashamed if you do too. You’re not the only one and there’s nothing wrong with looking great and feeling confident if you’re in the mood to … on a regular basis!
As a matter of fact, I just launched my new ‘SEXY 4 No Reason’ collection in my All Things Bubbly merchandise store because there are so many young girls and women out there struggling with self esteem issues, I just want to let you know that you NEVER need a REASON to be SEXY.
I got the idea for my ‘SEXY’ collection from my song “Living It Up”. The line goes “sexy for no reason, let the lady through #BubbleOnDeck”. Check out the video below and get a sneak peek at my ‘sexy collection’ clip at the end.
It’s easy to answer NO when you’re rational, but when you’re hurting and disappointed and the “other chick or dude” is popping off at the mouth … it’s a whole different ballgame! Especially if the 3rd party KNEW you two were in a relationship and you’re feeling angry and betrayed. Marinate on this video and let me know if you’ve ever been a fight over a relationship in the comment section … WHOA!

Dear Guys. All this time you thought it was trendy to sag so I want to apologize on behalf of girls across the world. I’m sorry we never told you that we actually HATE IT. Now you’ve gotten comfortable … all the extra low sagging and plumbers’ syndrome … all those raggedy draws. The holes. THE STAINS. All this BOOTY CLEAVAGE everywhere. It’s insane and it jiggles! Enough is enough … pull them pants up fellas! I got Krazyfigz on the track production and I even got ‘BootyCleavage’ t-shirts and hoodies available so you know it’s real. #BubbleOnDeck
“You may be ballin, but I can’t take you serious. Cuz you got Booty Cleavage and I don’t wanna see it”
… yes that’s me. That soundbite is not a sample or a parrot … it’s the bubble! I discovered a long time ago that I also have a knack for voiceovers too. It allows me to be even more creative with my music. Here’s my latest video “Polly” (produced by R.A. the Rugged Man). Let me know if I legit sound like the real bird lol? #BubbleOnDeck
“I thought Polly wanted a cracker, not a crackhead. Closest thing you’ll ever be to dope is either selling or using”
I think by now you know that I write about the good, the bad, and the ugly!
I wrote “To Kill A Baby” after the ‘Sandy Hook’ crisis, but when I initially released the audio on my P.ublic S.ervice A.nnouncement EP, people had a completely different interpretation of the record … waaaaaay left field. The song took on a whole new meaning and that’s the beauty of art.
There’s no right or wrong answer, but I think it’s time we have this much needed discussion. Watch my new video “To Kill A Baby” and let me know if you agree / disagree with the message, how it makes you feel, whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice, and any other feedback. #BubbleOnDeck
