Family Business/Janet & Paris….Cree’s Blog

Hey, 

Today, I want to talk about Family Business. 

I was watching the video tape of Janet and Paris. I read a few Tweets that Paris tweeted, and I wanted to somehow DELETE her account. She obviously doesn’t know how serious it is. 

I’m sitting here still tripping on the fact that this “lil gal” snatched away from Janet. Some people are saying that Janet smacked her, but I didn’t see it and if she did SO WHAT!!! I have a serious PROBLEM with this little gurl going on Twitter sharing their FAMILY BUSINESS with the MEDIA. This family has always been private, and its not fair that Paris…. *this generation of kids*, come along and make what’s PRIVATE…..PUBLIC. Which makes the family…brothers and sisters how to somehow clear this up… when in the past if something comes up, they can just keep it in the family and in the end it works itself out. 

This family is very FAMOUS, people LOVE to say….. “they have issues too”… YEAH OF COURSE THEY DO…….but at the same time they love to MAGNIFY it. They have to be very careful of what Paris and any other cousin, or young sibling put out there to the media. There are PEOPLE WAITING TO DISSECT what’s going on in this family, and Paris have no idea how serious this is. Its crazy for her or anybody * especially the younger generation* to come along and tear down the family name that has been in GOOD STANDING for many years. It tears me apart to see that Paris has easy access to the MEDIA that clearly has NO LOVE, to her or her family. All they want is the gossip, THE STORY….THE DRAMA. And what she clearly doesn’t realize is that no matter what she says AND LATER DELETES…….SOMEONE ALREADY has it saved in their files. I hope she learns a lesson real soon on FAMILY BUSINESS. 

I am very good when it comes to children. I raised a very, very successful 25 year old daughter as a single parent. I’ve worked with them many years tutoring, by having my own Youth group Raisingurls to Women, and working in a elementary school for 7 years. If I was a family member and was in position to speak with Paris, this is what I would say….. 

STANDING directly in front of her GIVING HER DIRECT EYE CONTACT: I would say…… 

Here’s the deal Paris… in this FAMILY *pointing to the ground*, we are very PRIVATE. We don’t get on FB, Twitter, BLOGS, and we don’t discuss or ANSWER QUESTIONS to the MEDIA at all about what goes on IN THIS FAMILY. I understand that people are going to ALWAYS ask you questions, AND THATS GOING TO HAPPEN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE…..but WE don’t do THAT HERE. We are a family that’s PRIVATE…. and we handle our family business amongst our selves. 

At this point, she’s going to NOT REALLY gasp how serious this is, because she really doesn’t know the effect her dad and family has had on many people all over the world. I would say to her……I know there are a lot of things you don’t understand……*and that’s fine* but you have to understand that the MEDIA has NO LOVE for anyone of us during this time of all our lives. I would tell her, you have to be careful of EVERYONE…. THIS IS YOUR LIFE NOW ….and especially while you are growing older. I would tell her this FAMILY has a lot of EXPERIENCE on the MEDIA and how they report things, how they twist things, and how they SEE THINGS. AND LASTLY….. I would say to her, if you ever in your life as long as you LIVE snatch away from ME……its GON BE ON …..AND POPPIN. Do you understand ME? Then I would ask if she had any questions…. and whether she likes it or NOT… I WOULD MAKE SURE she gives me *we give each other* a HUG AND A KISS. 

I know people, and I study people…..guess it comes from my gift from God to UNDERSTAND OUR YOUTH probably more than MANY adults. I say this….. if they don’t stop this little gurl now, while she is at the age where she can learn and gasp just how serious THIS IS…..She can be the one who grows up write a “TELL ALL BOOK” and cause so much damage to this family name. She knows a lot and if she ever get a hold or even understand JUST HOW MUCH POWER SHE HAS…. she can either build it up, or tear it down. Somebody has to step in and talk to this gurl. She is only feeling normal in emotions…..but they need to show her how to control them and not to take to FB, Twitter or any Media outlet, because people are being PAID to get the goods on this family and others. 

I hope this was/is a lesson for us all. Especially ME. 

Be Blessed

Michael Jackson’s movie….. This is it

mj shorthairI went to see Michael Jackson’s movie last night, not once but twice. Yea, it was that good. After work yesterday I took my mother to the 5:30 showing, it was jammed packed too. When it was over, we decided to go and visit my sister and her husbands  to say hey,they were home passing out candy to the trick or treaters. That was fun to watch. I was telling them how good the  movie was, and they were like let’s go see it, let’s go see it!!! I didnt mind going back because it was that good to me. After they passed out candy, my mom went home got ready for work, and I jumped in the truck with my Sister and her Husband and went  to the 10:30 pm showing.

What I loved most about Michael Jackson is his humbleness. He knows his music, he knows his work. He knows what he wants, and he had a team that was willing and able to give it to him. He wasnt bossy or pushy, he knew who he was, and how he wanted things done. I loved that about him. He could hear something out of place, out of tune, not right, and he was able to communicate that to his people, and they made things happen. I admire his ability to Lead. His people no matter how long they knew him, they were still amazed at this work, and willingness to get better. I learned that its very important to take photos, and write letters, video tape yourself and family, so that when you pass on they will have something to cherish you by. Im glad Michael video taped this movie for himself, if people would really open their minds up to think about life, LOVE, and people, they could really learn a lot from this movie. I get sad when people say…. it wasnt that good, or I expected this or that. And Im like WOW, didnt you get all the messages from this movie? Didnt you see the Love he had for people? Didnt you see how well his communication skills were? Didnt you see how he could talk to someone so gentle, but firm and was able to connect to his people? Didnt you hear the lyrics to the songs like, This is it, and Heal the World? Did you get that fact that he wanted the music to go excatly the way he wrote it, and how the fans LOVED IT? Didnt you get the fact that in order to be great at what you do, you have to be hands on, willing to take a moment to see how everyone is doing with HIS VISION? After he was pleased with something he needed from someone, he ended with God bless You.

 Michael Jackson wanted peace. You can tell he wasnt for drama, or anything messy, he was a person who wanted to promote peace, and to the people that had access to his life THAT MEANT HIM BAD AND LIES, has explaining to do. Not to me, but to God.

 I love Michael Jackson and I always have. When he was going through court dates, and being sued, I wanted to talk to him so bad. I had a Diary  when I was about 9 years old.  I wrote in many of the pages…. I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON all through it. LOL We are both Virgos and I have always have a connection to his life growing up as a child, and as an adult. It’s all good, because one day Ill be able to talk with him one on one. I believe that.

God Bless You All

MJ will be missed!

Day 2 and I still can’t believe that Michael Jackson is dead. I just can’t believe it. It just seems so not true. I’m shocked, feels like a rumor. A part of me want this to be something that went to far, a prank that we’d forgive, but never forget. Just come out of hiding and start the tour. This is really hard. Shocking.

I worked yesterday and got off @ 3 pm. Came home, got on line and *something* said check your Twitter * MsVirgoCree* and see whats up with everyone. I click on and all I read was Micheal Jackson is dead, then I read that Micheal Jackson is in a coma, that he suffered a Cardiac Arrest. All at the same time I felt that it was real. I just did. But at the same time, this had to be a rumor. How does Michael Jackson die? How do you tell someone this? How can you open your mouth to say it. Of course everyone has to die, and everyone will *taste* it, but that’s not what I’m saying….. I’m saying Michael Jackson can’t be dead. Noooooooom he’s suppose to die in a wheel chair at an old age with flowers sitting in his lap, and all his family members around. Not at 50, 9 years older than I am now. I feel so numb. I’m always talkative at work, today I was quiet. Just don’t feel like talking. I had about 3 hours of sleep last night, because I had to take my mom to the hospital for her out patient surgery on her knee. More on that later.

After I heard the news about Michael Jackson, I took a ride to pick up my daughter from school. It was raining so hard, power was knocked out in many areas, the freeways were flooded. It was really a mess. So I’m driving down 94 and all of a sudden the car in front of me comes to a complete stop, I mean this was SUDDEN. The cars in front of him was at a complete stop. So I had to pump my brakes so hard that I was really scared that I was going to bump the car in front of me. It was so slippy, OMG it was a mess. No one was flying or acting out of control it was just one of those things. While I’m trying to break the car down to avoid hitting the car in front of me, I NATURALLY look behind me to see how much time I left that driver to stop. He was good, as a matter of fact looking back on it, about 4 cars saw what was happening and they broke down EARLY lol. All of a sudden I hear this screeching noise and its the car in the lane to the right of me, trying to avoid from hitting the car in front of him, he COMES RIGHT AT ME. I’m trying to stop myself, and I had to surve over to the left * thank God wasn’t any cars there, they saw it coming and they stopped*. I looked back over at him and it was doing everything he can to stop that car. * its funny now*, when he finally got that jeep under control I just KNOW HIS SHOES ARE WORN OUT ON THE BOTTOM lol hehehe. They gotta be!! After we came to a complete stop he looked over at me and kept saying he was sorry. I said NO NO NO don’t worry about it, its okay, I did the same thing to the car in front of me. So after a complete stop, we started moving again. We knew it had to be a accident ahead. As we inched forwarded, over to my right was several cars and trucks involved in a car accident, but what I saw next took me over. I saw a car that was turned over on his * head* and people screaming, and getting out of their cars running to the scene. This one man reached into the car that had flipped over and seemed to be getting someone out, or getting something. Then I looked over on the shoulder and saw lots of people crying and this lady grasping this baby, looked like blood was dripping down her arms, she was shaking and screaming. OMG I just burst out and started crying.I couldn’t help it. That one instant look had me in tears. It had to just happen, because the Police or the EMS wasn’t there. I hope that if it was someone in that car they got out. It was a really sad scene, after MJ I wasn’t expecting to see that. And you wonder had I already picked her up when I was suppose too, would we have been in that? You think about stuff like that. And then you Thank God. The way the scene looked, someone hit a patch of water and went airborne and flipped over. The other cars that were involved couldn’t stop and probably hit the car that was turned over. It was a mess. I pray that everyone was okay.

I’m addicted to Twitter and it really is a good tool for communication. I like to find out things from the horse mouth. I don’t mess with those gossip magazines at all, and I totally enjoy Twitter. YOU chose to be POSITIVE or NEGATIVE, you chose your followers and who you follow. A lot of the younger folks like to do LIVE chats with the fans. Which I think is so cool. Especially the young people really enjoy it. When I was 14 and I had friends who loves Prince, we had to write each other that’s 3 days to Texas * where my friend lived* and 3 more days for her to send something back to me.lol Now after 27 or 28 years, we talk on the phone and email each other. Times has really really changed. They even have bubble tweet, where you can record yourself talking to your followers/folks you followed. My favorite people are Shaunie O Neal, Maxwell, my MFF Maxwell Family, John Salley, Diddy, Tameka Raymond, Sherri Shepard, Souljaboytellem, and a few others. Twitter cuts down on sooooooooooooooo much gossip!!! I just love it. So look me up peeps. MsVirgoCree and Follow me!!!

Right now Im blogging on 3 hours of sleep last night. This morning my mom had in and out surgery on her knee and I had to take her to the hospital this morning. Had to be up @ 5:15 went to bed around 2ish. * yeah I know don’t ask*. lol Me and Keisha sat with her till I had to leave @ 9:20 to go be at work @ 10:00. I only had to work 4 hours that was a breeze so I decided to go in. She was home when I got off @ 2, but called my cell phone and told me to pick up her prescription. It was blazing hott too, guess you know I did a drive thru that pharmacy. lol

Im happy I got my bills to $0.00. That’s my light and gas bill, 2 cell phones, 2 house phones, cable, Internet. I’m so happy. My Anita Baker friends are coming to town, I gotta have my spending money and my rental car for this day. We are going to have a good time, cant wait.

Aiight that’s my time.. I’m so sleepy I cant even think right. Take care and be good.
