She’s not an actor or singer, but she made the cover of Essence Magazine! Thicksational Activist, Johnetta Elzie is giving us FIERCE on Essence Magazine’s February 2016 cover. Check out the pictures below.
Doesn’t she remind you of Jill Scott and Kimberly Elise? She looks amazing! So proud of her and the selfless work she does for the people. If anyone deserves this cover, it’s her. Check out her interview here!
THICKSATIONAL ARTIST (rapper, producer, singer), Missy Elliott will receive the inaugural Innovator award at Billboard’s 2015 Women In Music ceremony.
This award is long overdue! In my opinion, Missy’s name should be added to the group of legends who are known for innovation (Michael Jackson, Prince, Janet Jackson)! Name me an artist that came out after Missy who is at the same level as her or is respected more for their innovation?
There was no one like Missy in hip hop before her debut and there is no one like her now in hip hop or pop culture period! Furthermore, can you name me a popular artist in this generation that is an innovator, period?…..Just one?
Congrats Missy! Thank you for the inspiration, the club bangers and true artistry!
And no, I’m not talking about Missy’s WTF (Where They From) song (btw, that’s my new workout song, straight fire!). Anyhoo, I’m talking about this….
“Often times people cheat because of something they’re not getting. But when you have open and honest dialogue and you say, ‘We’re just human beings’ and all these people on the face of the earth, do you think my eyes won’t ever say, ‘He’s fine’ or ‘She’s attractive’?” she said in an audio interview with TrueExclusives.com, published on Tuesday, when asked about people in relationships having a “free pass to cheat.”
“Now if you wanna go further with it, let’s be honest enough to have those conversations. ‘What is it about that person that you find that you wanna sleep with?'” she said. “Because they may give you something that I’m simply not willing to do. And if that’s the case, how could I be mad? Because I’m not gonna do it. Should I deprive you of not having it? That’s when the relationship is real real.”
See, we’ve been taught to have ownership. That’s the Western way to do it,” she told TrueExclusives.com. “I originate from this place called Africa and what I know of African kings, tell me about one of them that just had one wife. Do you know any of them? I don’t. That’s where I originate from. So, when we came here, we adopted other people’s ways and that’s called ownership.”
“I don’t want to be owned anymore. I want to love you so much…I don’t want to have ownership over anyone,” she added. “We’ve been there before. Because we’ve been taught and conditioned to believe that if you should sleep with somebody else, that’s the damnedest of sins, that’s adultery, that’s the [most] horrible thing ever. We’re human, guys, that’s all…do what works for you. What works for your mom and daddy might not work for you and your man.” (Source EOnline)

Now, do you want to know MY opinion?
Are you sure?
MO’NIQUE SHUT THE HELL UP!
Look, I’m all for people doing what they want to do in their marriage. HOWEVER, it’s none of my business or society’s business what you do IN your marriage. When you start to share what goes on in your marriage (more than once she has shared this scud-bucket BS) you are trying to push your opinions and beliefs on other people! There are plenty of celebrity couples that are rumored to be swingers, have open marriages, etc. But, guess what? They never confirmed it! Do you know why?
IT’S NONE OF OUR DAMN BUSINESS AND THEY DON’T WANT TO PUSH THEIR BELIEFS ON ANYONE ELSE! DUH DAMN!
Learn from them Mo’Nique! I mean seriously, you’re in the media for everything negative now. Yes, I know the media can twist your words, but dammit you are on tape saying this BS. Focus on your career, focus on your family, focus on producing better movies because “Blackbird” was HORRIBLE!
Thickettes, you don’t have to settle for an open marriage. If you want a loyal, faithful man, you can get one! Even when people like Mo’Nique puts this garbage out for “men” to think they should be able to have it their way.
So, Mo’Nique here’s a thought….if you believe in African tradition, then YOU should let your wonderful husband have multiple wives…let’s see if you will be open to that!
If I can’t fully express how I feel about a certain topic, Frenchie Davis will say it and READ HUNTY! If you don’t remember Frenchie, she is the thicksational vocalist from American Idol, The Voice, Rent on Broadway and the list goes on! Listen to what Frenchie has to say about the Gabby Sidibe BS.
LOL, BABY!!!! When I saw “Empire”, I knew the negative comments would come! Thicksational actress, Gabby Sidibe had a love scene. But, not just ANY love scene, a love scene with a FINE, CHOCOLATE, KILLER ABS, SEXY MAN!
So you know what happened next…..
THE HATEFUL, IGNORANT, INTERNET GANGSTAS CAME OUT!
This is the only “safe” comment I can put on the blog. A lot of the comments were pure trash!
Now let’s take a look shall we…
I wasn’t shocked that Gabby received negative comments.
Are people really upset that a thicksational woman got some love on a TV show? Thickettes know there are PLENTY of men who LOVE thick girls. Honestly, I think this meme sums it up and gives the REAL reason why they’re mad!
Right! You’re mad because YOU can’t get a man AND a man who looks like him! As I was watching the “hate” on social media, Salt-N-Pepa’s song “Ill Take Your Man” was playing in my head. Now, I don’t believe in a woman taking another woman’s man. HOWEVER, I do believe in thick girls taking all the FINE MEN in the world. BOOP!
Here’s what Gabby had to say about the Internet Gangsters.
First Janet, now Adele! Great music is back! “25” will be in stores November 20th! You’ve been missed, Adele! Please slay us again with your THICKSATIONAL MUSIC! The album cover (above) is EVERYTHING!

Before I went on my vaca, I saw headlines that Omarion, the “Color Struck“, “Exotical Obsessed” lead singer of B2K canceled a London Nightclub performance due to the club denying entry to ladies because they were considered “too dark” (yes, this also happens in other countries).
Now, I was shocked when I saw this headline. I grew up in LA during the Immature/B2K era and if you know anything about 99.9% of their background dancers/video girls…THEY WERE LIGHT, BIRACIAL, MULTIRACIAL, “EXOTICAL”, HELL ANYTHING BUT A BLACK FEMALE WAS AROUND THEM (MAYBE ONE OR TWO TO KEEP THEIR “WE REALLY DO LIKE BLACK GIRLS” FANS AROUND) but, I digress. Perhaps he’s a changed man….(maybe).
Check out some of the headlines I saw regarding this BS.
And check out my beautiful sistahs/thickettes below.

The two girls in the middle, Reisha and Tasha were denied access to the club but their friends Lin Mei and Zalika Miller weren’t having it.
On the surface, everything seems great. Two friends are fighting against the club and trying to get celebrities to boycott the club as well. So what’s my issue?
That’s right! Almost every blog, magazine and newspaper chose to write in the headlines that these women were denied entrance because of their skin, but refused to mention it was also due to their bodies. If you look at the picture, Zalika is the last girl standing on the left. She is a chocolate sistah as well but appears to be thinner than Reisha and Tasha. Clearly the discrimination has to do with more than just their color.
Being denied to party due to your weight is still discrimination! But of course weight discrimination is always a taboo topic to talk about. Well, dammit not here! We will continue to talk about it until weight discrimination ends.
Reisha, Tasha, Lin Mei and Zalika continue to stand up for what is right! Let people know that “too dark” AND “overweight” ignorance should not be allowed.
Some of you may have an issue with me using the word h*e. Well, I can’t help you. The words fits for some “women” and those women usually call themselves h*es as well. So, moving on….
Sigh. As I watched ratchet reality reruns, I saw a few episodes of “Basketball Wives LA”. There was a recent beef between newcomer, Meghan James and old bucket h*e, Draya Michele. Draya already had an issue with Meghan when she lied about being friends with crazy thickette, Jackie. However, things really went downhill when lipo Draya said that Meghan has a F.U.P.A which stands for Fat Upper P**sy Area (yes, ignorant I know). Draya continued to talk about Meghan’s weight in other episodes as well. Now, I don’t expect much from Draya since we all know how she got on the show in the first place (cough, cough groupie). Still, the comments I have seen about Meghan has me a little confused. There are actually people who agree with Draya about Meghan being fat.
Honey, if Meghan is fat then I weigh 2,000 pounds. She is far from being fat. But, even IF she was, does Draya have the right to talk about her? Furthermore, why does Draya, who is a known h*e, get more respect than someone who may have a stomach? So this made me wonder…do you get more respect being a loose sleezy than being thick? I can be untrustworthy, arrogant, rude and have more miles on me than a 1970 Buick, but if I’m skinny then all is right with the world? Maybe I need to move to another Universe…….your thoughts?
Hunty, I thought I would never see the day! A thickette on a world tour…and NO she is not singing, she is dancing.
Allison is going on tour with the original THICKSATIONAL Diva, my girl, JANET JACKSON! Of course Janet is the first icon to bring a Thickette on tour and I hope others will follow. Check out Allison’s reel and when she found out she was going on tour with Janet Jackson!
