In a recent MSN posting about your interview with Nicki some folks posted what I would consider very rude and sad remarks. I wanted to post my response but I could not get my remarks to post. So if you ever speak to Nicki please tell her there is one 56 year Mom that has a 15 yr old daughter and I think she is a great example for her. Not because of her music, but because she dared to reach and follow her dreams, and from wht I can tell, has managed to remain "true" to herself. In all the interviews I have read the one thing that always impressed me, was her reflection that no matter what you do, you should do the best at it that you can and that you are indeed in "charge" and "responsible" for your life. Personally, I can't think of a better example. I'm sure Nicki is used to getting crap and being "judged" but really sometimes, even if you don't know the person saying it, it's nice to hear that someone maybe "sees" you. Fact is I probably don't really "see" Nicki, but ever now and then there is look in her eyes that says.."really" "don't you get it" "its believing in the dream" and "yourself"
