10 Secret Confessions Of The 2012 Gold-Digger

From WWMDWarning: What you are about to read is mad real…

Being a gold-digger isn’t the worst thing in the world. It’s not the most noble either… But it is ambiguous, and evidently in need of explanation. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard a young lady complain about finances and then jokingly/dead seriously wish for a Sugar Daddy as refuge, I’d have enough to sponsor one of these poor damsels myself, smdh. Bad news: I don’t :( Good news: I know someone that does! :)

I think Penny’s a befitting pseudonym for the lady, don’t you agree?

Pretty Penny’s been shining since the day I met her, courtesy of some very generous sponsors. It’s a strange dichotomy this 27 yr-old lives in that condo of hers: half of the time she’s blasting “haters” in disagreement of her enviable life on social networks. The other half is spent not giving a huff but happily playing with “toys”, the sparkly, furry, and tax exemptive gifts she’s gingerly collected over the years from her bevy of suitors: pro athletes, lawyers, and ballin’ businessmen, all of which firmly believed it aint trickin, because well… They got it.

So I caught up with Penny and asked her some very real questions, a special delivery for inquiring minds. As always, you can thank me later, via fan mail and long stem roses…

1. ) Do you resent the name Gold-digger?

I do. I’m not digging for gold! Honestly that whole name calling thing is really urban and coming from an urban perspective. If a chick of color, which I am goes for guy of a higher rank the other crabs in the barrel want to call her out her name. When a white woman does it, they just call her smart. I don’t get it and I don’t care to.

2.) Was there a specific incident that made you turn into a “Gold-Digger” or better yet, a “Financial Security Miner”?

Hahahaha! I like that! Yeah, the incident was when reality hit me! I used to go out with regular guys that I was really into, nothing extravagant, you know little dates to the movies or out for dinner. He’d pay or if I liked him we’d go dutch, whatever. But that’s always how it is in the beginning. My last BF really changed the game for me. He gave me nothing but hard d*ck and bubblegum and that was good enough for me because I loved him. After I found out he was cheating I had nothing but tears to cry and time I wished I didn’t waste. I can’t be that girl anymore that sits around and cries about the fact I gave this guy everything and have nothing to show for it, well not anymore. Now if a guy wants to be a player, he can go right ahead. He can play with his toys and I’ll play with my toys, at his expense.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
