Hola Beautiful People!
Welcome to Who Gave You The Mic! An entertainment and lifestyle reality check. I’m your girl Ny’Tia Patrice! (also known as Ace Dei and Patience- but that’s a whole ‘mother story)
The Back Story on #WGUTM:
Have you ever been to a movie that every single morning show around the world claims it to be “The best thing you will see all year” but turns out to be the worst $10 you spent in your life?
Or Fashion week rears its deceptive head and all the cute clothing gets no press but the overly price, super extra looking hot mess-ness becomes the new huge fashion trend and now you have to look at everybody in your office/ classroom rocking the sensory overload attire as you try not to go through a stage 5 seizure.
Yeah… I tend to not believe all the hype around today’s entertainment media movement. I would describe myself as an extremely opinionated, kind-hearted, comedic, Miss Love-to-play-devils-advocate individual who can’t help but question damn near everything Pop Culture related. With that type of personality, it’s no wonder why I strongly identify Kanye West as my spirit animal or at least my ideal big brother.
Honestly #WGUTM came about after the infamous Kanye outburst at the 2009 VMA awards about “Beyonce had the best video of all times”. I literally turned to my mother and said “Who gave him the mic! Who?” Despite the fact we were all thinking that Beyonce should have won, none of us had the balls to just say how we were really feeling… except Mr. West. And that my friends is how #WGUTM was conceived.
After seeing a lot of stupid antic and fall by the way side Kodak moments throughout the years, I got tired of listening to all these so called entertainment/ beauty/ fashion gurus and wanted to bring a real person’s 2 cents to the mix. I created #WGUTM YouTube channel in 2013 to give the entertainment world a reality check on their tired b.s.
With that being said… Welcome again to Who Gave You The Mic! And entertainment and reality check. Whether you agree with my opinions or not, feel free to mic check me in the comment section.
