Lola Love is upset
Now I am one of the main people (not a big time or big name mind you) who has ragged on Angel "Lola" Love about her burgeoning rap career. As you will see in this clip, she wants to know if being on covers and appearing in videos makes her less credible as an artist. Hear listen for yourself:
Here is my point, I don't think just because she is a video girl that she shouldn't rap. I don't think she has a passion for it, she just knows people in that industry who can connect her with radio and video. The first part of her interview says it all, she is trying to do whatever she can to get what she wants monetarily and material wise. It is offensive to me as a fan of hip-hop. She is right, people will be skeptical until she proves herself as being worthy as an artist. From what I have heard so far, she isn't. To compare herself to women who started rapping as their way to fame first then segued into modeling isn't valid to me.
I am also confused as to why she would decide that her name or video name are not good enough, but she must become "Lola Monroe". I don't feel that she has the connection to Marilyn Monroe. When she says it, it doesn't come to me as natural, it just looks like an excuse to do something for attention. If you already have a name why would you use one you have no equity in? I mean it's like me calling myself sonny gambino, at the very least she could have something that looks like it might actually fit. I'm sorry but to me she seems extra false, fake, artificial, and superficial.
