    I'll agree with some of the stuff, but at the end of the day the people that likes this kind of stuff will say, "So what?"

    Agreeeeeed with everything she said. I always thought it was a stupid fuckin song and it still is.Maybe one of the dumbest songs of 2004. This is sadly what r&b came down too. Great article.

    D. C. has always been the epitome of hyprocisy.


    They don't want "soldiers" (who are they fighting for anyway?)... they want the image and the bad attitude.


    I tell ya... urban music is the new minstrel show.

    Correct.

    Excellent points, I was wondering if any journalist/writer would make a point of the song. It's based on bullshit.

    Destiny's Child defines "pseudo-style."

    Striking a buncha cheesy poses in bourgie ass fashion is NOT style.

    Their subject matter has always been shallow and uppity.

    Did you actually listen to the lyrics behind "no, no, no" or "nasty girl" or anything for that matter?

    They're lucky they can sing. But nothing they say in ANY of their songs should be taken seriously, especially this latest effort at reaching a new audience.

    I've always been a DC fan... the song is catchy and fun... that's about as deep as I read into it. Then again I don't necessarily see the word "soldier" as having a negative connotation... not every brotha in the hood is a thug, and I don't think that's what they're saying. God knows I can't stand gold teeth, but if that's what they're into... so what.

    The British press butchered this track about 2 months ago in an interveiw with DC.

    Kelly and Beyonce were speachless... whilst Michelle tried to excuse the track branding it 'growth' and expressing 'their people'. After realising she made no sense she tried to amend the statement but was interupted by the interveiwer who pointed out that they all grew up in 'white' neighbour hoods... They left.

    I think the journalist is a little bit too harsh. It's a song with a catchy melody by the most popular women vocal group today. So of course people gonna enjoy the song both psychologically and sonically. Now the contents of the song is no deeper or shallow than 99.99% of what they play on most R&B/hip hop stations. Plus most girls, no matter what their economical, ethnic, or racial background is go through a phase or have a sexual appetite for rough and rugged guys (thugs). Their just singing a song that majority of their fan base (young girls) can relate to. Plus, by DC singing the song it didn't ignite this desire...this is old, the idea is nothing new. And if she wanna talk about DC, then she has to speak on majority artist, because most artist in the music industry portray that the character of what it means to be a black man and masculine is being a thug or thuggish. No girl wants to be with a punk, but just because you ain't a thug doesn't mean you're a coward. But I'm really not feeling the song either.
