The 90’s gave us many great things, one being R&B singer Monica Brown. Monica touched our hearts with “Why I Love You So Much” and “Before You Walk Out My Life” among others hits on her debut album “Miss Thang”. She gave every female an anthem along with Brandy in “The Boy Is Mine” and gave us a tune to sing as we dismantle his car (JK! I never approve of ruining personal property), with “So Gone”. Monica has continued to give us heart felt soul and TLC through her music. She guides us through love. Helps us accept love and even holds our hand as we get over it.
Aside from her music, Monica has given us relationship goals with her marriage to NBA player Shannon Brown and family goals with her kids Romelo, Rodney and Laiyah. She creates a life to aspire to. No her life isn’t perfect. I’m sure she’s had marital discourse she’s married to an athlete. No shade but athletes get a bad rep in relationships. Everyone is susceptible to cheating but athletes get an unfair advantage. Her kids probably irritate her soul some days but she still shows us the wonderful things her kids do. She’s made my heart melt with her kids pictures. Through whatever she continues to be PRIVATE, POSITIVE and NEVER PETTY. Let’s face it, that’s a pretty hard thing to do in 2017.
What I absolutely love about Monica and what prompted me to write this post is her effect as a cheerleader. I can go on Instagram everyday and see Monica in my feed supporting somebody. Real, genuine support. No matter who someone is or what their background is you can see Monica opening her arms and telling the world they’re about to be somebody. Her support for women and African Americans and anybody in general is unreal. She has talent and she has no problem spreading her talent or her love. Monica throws love not shade!
My auntie always told me that pretty is as pretty does. Monica embodies that to me. She isn’t just a pretty face. Her ability to be relatable in every part of her life and her genuine additiude make her beautiful. We know black don’t crack but beauty on the inside makes the outside more attractive. Shoutout to Monica for making me want to glow up inside!
