We did it! We survived Mercury in Retrograde! Time to create new energies and new intentions. Out with the bad air, in with the good air.
Fun fact: I went viral for being “old and ugly” during Mercury in Retrograde. During these times, the experience tends to “revisit” me. Sometimes a new press article circulates during this time.
I also started my music videos, my book and yes my album during a Mercury in Retrograde period. Hence, I have a bunch of unfinished projects.This explains why they all got off to such effortless starts and then completely stalled. With the Autumnal Equinox, I am focusing on what I want to create. I would like to finish all my projects… it is a matter of prioritizing. Typical Sag that I am I spin a million plates at once.
During the last two years I have done a lot of soul searching and have questioned if I should still be in the music business. I have seen and experienced the very worst of what it has to offer. I’ve considered getting out and going into politics, journalism, restaurant management or just getting a killer bartending job and making music on the side….doing music as a hobby. After all, there are literally HEADLINES ALL OVER THE WORLD SAYING THAT I SUCK.Maybe that’s a sign I shouldn’t do this as a career? I’ve considered putting all this behind me, moving on and focusing on new things.
Here’s the problem with that: my story needs to be told. All of it.
In the digital age, I believe that having an internet reputation mirrors the truth is a right. We should be able to control our internet reputations with the correct dialogue with those who write about us, we should not have to pay “internet reputation” companies to wipe off things about us that are blatantly false. Really, I’m supposed to pay $1,000 so I don’t have to read that I’m old, ugly and off key all over the internet?
Yes, not only do we need to see some change in the legal system, but we need change in our media as well. Media is a powerful tool when used correctly. I believe that every little girl who struggles with body issues or poor self esteem should be told my story backward and forward.
My story matters because it is the story of every woman and girl within a mile of a TV, Radio or Internet signal.
The last two years were spent talking about the lawsuit. New York Post, your next. It’s all love, boo.
And these are the intentions I am setting as we go into the Autumnal Equinox…
