I must admit I still see Brandy as Moesha but she has long turned into a beautiful women and mother. She’s not that much older than myself but I always looked up to her as one of many inspiring black women. I’m pretty sure I wanted box braids because of Brandy. Brandy has sold over 40 MILLION records worldwide and her voice is as fine as wine, it gets better and better. I have no doubt she’ll be considered one of the greats in the female R&B game.
In these pictures taken from an interview with Fashion Bomb Daily Brandy is giving face, serving the sultry eye, and working the hell out of a pantsuit
When asked what is her definition of a strong women is she answered:
“when you can hold your ground and you can be firm about your life and the things that you want and the things that you deserve; [It’s when you know] what you’re worth and how you value yourself. Having that kind of poise and having that kind of strength. I’m so glad that I’ve been able to find my own strength because it hasn’t always been like this. I’m thankful that I’m very very strong. I wouldn’t lose that for the world.”
Brandy has a 14-year-old daughter named Sy’rai who I must say is a spitting image of her mother. This what she had to say about being a mother:
“Being a mother has completely turned me into an example. You can’t be a hypocrite. You can’t teach your children anything if you’re not doing it yourself. I lead by what I do. I remember what it was like to be a child. Mixing those two things together means you can get a great relationship with your children. You can help them to be strong and help guide them. One of the things I teach my daughter is that her life is not my life, it’s her life.”
Brandy recently filed a lawsuit against her label, claiming that Chameleon Entertainment Group has blocked her from recording new music. Even with the issues with her label she says:
“The music is definitely happening. I have been fighting for freedom for a while as an artist. That why it’s taken me so long. I’m very very excited for my new songs. These are songs that are a raw truth about a particular phase in my life that I just had to confront. This is going to be some of the best work I’ve ever done. Because I know who I am.”
Growing up in the industry can be a hard task for some but Brandy managed it well. I hope she gets her issues with her label worked out so we can get new music and a new album!
