India.Arie Claps Back At Her Internet Attackers
Mar 24 | by Natasha
After India.Arie Tweeted these messages about the lack of social responsibility artists (like Beyonce and Lady GaGa) are taking in their music and videos these days, folks started attacking her. But she's not taking the internet thuggery lightly. Here's her Twitter response to the stans and vicious attackers: I woke up this morning to the news that my Great Grandmother who was 99 years old, made her transition. She was a courageous and Noble very intelligent Bold spoken women. I was going to write this ANYway, but now, I have added incentive. Life’s to precious to live it for anybody else. So let's clarify one good time, for myself, for my fans and friends, and anyone attempting to disrespect me, twist my words or intimidate me. To be clear, I made the mistake of thinking that I could have a conversation about current events with a mass group of people, of course that NEVER works, because obviously there are too many people who think too many ways to keep it to a simple debate and sharing of ideas. BUT I speak to mass groups of people through my music, I write songs of social commentary, so, I continue to speak my heart and mind. I never intend to disrespect any one if it ever comes across that way, it’s a misperception of who I am and intend to be. Sadly, not surprising that some kids will be THAT disrespectful...LOL! I have to laugh to keep from crying. It scares me for our kids. I know were better than that. No one can make you be a kinder person, but why not be kinder for yourself? Being Crude and vulgar is such a waste of time and mind. I see all of that type of talk as childish games. If you really want to communicate with me be eloquent and respectful. I enjoy debate and understanding other points of view. Anything other than that is just bad childish jokes, I haven blocked you yet because I find it astonishing and curious... I'm scared for our youth, we gotta be better than that. And to GROWN people saying little slick stuff... This internet anonymity syndrome, where people say mean things ONLY because they know they won't have to be held responsible for it ... Sad sign of the times man. Oh. The Randomness: 1.
