QUE! QUE! QUE! Now I waited after about three more viewings to talk about this boy so I can give a good analysis. Now I am in no way excusing his recent behavior, but I am offering explanations as to why he is feeling and acting the way he is.

At the beginning of the season Que kept feeling as though his opinions were not being valued. He felt that no one wanted Day26 to be more than just a normal R&B group, and that no one else in the group was compromising on trying to decide just what Day26 was, especially for this new album. His point is completely valid. New things are becoming the "it" thing to do, such as the rock/pop combo.

I agree with him in the sense that I think R&B music is beginning to encompass various types of music styles and so he believes that they should be moving along with this growing definition. However, other group members want to resort to the regular R&B. So Que feels as though no one is valuing his opinion and when Diddy came and thought the joint he picked out was hot, he really felt like see why can't yall listen to me.

Additionally, Willie would press his buttons simply because when Will said something, it seemed to be of importance to the group, but if Que said something, it didn't mean anything and Willie didn't care, and it seemed like no one else did either.

Then, Que gets in a fight that he supposedly wins but yet they steal all of his stuff. But his brothers didn't really seem to support him through that.

Then to top that off, Que's mom comes in and basically sides with the rest of his group members who all already cast him off as being crazy, and she says his problem is that he doesn't want to listen. But the problem with that is that as her son, she should understand that Que is a little more sensitive that the average guy, so for her to do that in front of the other group members, made him feel like no one was in his corner.

So when you combine all of this, among others, it makes sense why he's been acting all irrational. There's all these things on his mind and as the youngest he feels like everyone is lecturing him as well as outcasting him. So with all these things weighing on him, it's no wonder why he keeps acting the way he is. It's too much and it's messing with him making rational and practical decisions.

Diddy should have picked up on this alot sooner, but now Que is going to possibly have to suffer because these issues weren't ironed out before they got this bad. Poor Que.

We Need Different

Two words. Keri Hilson. Honestly when she first came out I was like who is this chick?? But she's honestly in her own league. She's an excellent writer, and her vocal range is pretty sick, if you don't believe me, listen to the adlibs on her song "Make Love." I need another listen of the album to truly make a real judgment but so far so good. Although I don't like all of the songs, I did like the fact that each song was pretty different.

No one can say she's trying to take Beyonce's spot in the sense that she is not only in the Pop/R&B lane, but includes techno, experimental, etc. because she definitely is a story teller. And that's something we need more of. Keri can definitely paint a good picture or action or feeling in her songs and that's extremely important as an artist, although some artists just get by because of their looks. But Keri was honestly blessed with it all.

Honestly when I think of my own competition for when I become more famous, I think about Keri Hilson. She is doing what I want to do. Luckily however, we have two completely different looks and two completely different sounds. So I definitely look forward to working with her in the future. So go cop the album. And here's "Make Love"
