These Are Desperate Times, Ayesha Posted on 07 Dec 23:36 , 0 comments
"Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters," - Ayesha Curry
The San Jose Mercury News touched on the hot debate that Ayesha's declaration stirred up. The fact that she's not into flaunting her lady stuff on the regular is apparently enough to get a few thousand people all bothered and irked on social media, and I actually understand why.
Social media is all about images. If you think otherwise, then you're probably not updating your Instagram, Twitter or Facebook regularly. It's often the mediocre (in the looks department) person's savior - filters, foundation, lipstick, push-up bras and the right angle can help you snap Hollywood worthy pictures. Then it's back to reality, whatever that is.
Images on social media have also launched several noteworthy internet careers via YouTube and Instagram. How many make-up artists, before say, 2005 could develop the notoriety that these platforms have enabled? Many of these women, who are very pretty, have been able to take their beauty as well as their skills to the next level and sell it to the masses.
So here's comes Ayesha, all pretty (and popular, and talented) and married to the undefeated Warriors king, talkin' 'bout she dresses like a nun. She didn't say that? Maybe not, but I think if you're an image-driven enterprise, she definitely stepped on those toes. I don't think she meant to, but her words have probably pointed out the obvious to a lot of folks. You don't have to over-expose yourself to find the life, career or man of your dreams. It may seem counter-intuitive to some, but she's living her truth.
I will say that I have nothing against showing skin. If you've got it, flaunt it. Balance in all things is the key.
