Danger!!! Are your children being influenced by reality tv?

Are reality shows too influential on young minds? Hell, are they too influential on grown folks? Think about it for a minute. We have tons of shows on television right now that operate under the pretense of some person, famous or not, finding “love” or money or whatever else the ingenious producers can come up with. Some of these shows are a joke! When “Flavor of Love” aired, who in their right mind really wanted to get with Flavor Flav?!? For real though? I am a huge fan of Public Enemy, but Flavor Flav?!? 911 might be a joke but so is Flav!! I am addicted to reality television shows but for me they are just that…. television, NOT REALITY! 

VH1’s “For the Love of Ray J” is my latest addiction. This show is actually plausible. Ray J is attractive, young, single and sexy. The ladies competing for his attention are also attractive, young, single and sexy. I can believe that at least a few of the young ladies are there to “be with him”, while more than a couple may be there for the exposure. It’s Hollywood, y’all!! 

Miss Monica “Danger” Leon is one of the break-out stars from this show. Anyone who has watched the show knows that Monica, aka Danger, is the girl with the Tiger tattoo on her face. Monica has been so influential in her short time on tv that one young woman has decided to follow in her footsteps and get the exact same tattoo on her face. Below, you will find a picture of Monica with her tatted face followed by a picture of the other young woman. You can peruse more pictures of Monica on her myspace page and view videos on her website .

Granted, Monica is a beautiful young woman and the tattoo suits her, it affords her the autonomy to be herself and stand out from the rest. On her myspace page, Monica asserts that she’s flattered by the actions of this uber-fan. Okay, sure. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Because this is my blog, let me interject. I HATE when people copy me! Seriously! Some would say that I’m immature for thinking this way….. um… no… I just like to have my own shit! I got mine, you go get yours! I endured years of ridicule in school because I was different and I don’t appreciate anyone jacking my style now that it’s trendy!

Enough about me. I would like to know one thing: why are our children so quick to follow and not lead? Please just be yourself, whatever the hell that may be!! This revelation may require some action on your part. Be still. Be quiet. Listen to who you are. If you are quiet long enough you will hear it.
