As I’m sure you’ll all already know, on Friday I supported BLACK ICE THE POET in Amsterdam City Theatre at an event called SPOKEN. Continue reading

Chewing Gum Dreams… just rambling thought I’d share.

1 Feb
 

 

We embraced living within our means. We were the youth of Britain, we didn’t want to be ‘rich’, or ‘okay’ or ‘white’ anymore, and so we decided that black would be more different from white than the white people could ever imagine. And if you were white and lived on an estate, you were black. Together we were hooded aliens. We spread our paper wings and flew as high as the low ceilings would allow us. The top floor on the estate was our highest cloud. When it rained, it poured, and London would flood, but our estates were so high we weren’t touched by a drop. So the plants never grew. But it was a fair exchange because no one drowned… we just sunk a little … sometimes.

We wanted lyrics, not music, and we learned every bar and screamed them till their ears died. Their ears did eye. Every single one and pair of them. And then they never heard us anymore, they don’t hear us anymore, they’ll never hear us again.

 
But we’re still screaming

CHEWING GUM DREAMS (My First Play- DSD pt 38)

17 Jan

The 67 bus, friendship, violence, Lindon Estate, sex, friendship, UK garage, school, music, teachers, friendship, periods, emergency contraceptive, arse and tits, friendship, raves, tampons, white boys, mum and dad, God, money. Friendship.Image
Tracey Gordon is the school girl shouting at the back of the bus, who insults a teacher so acutely they cry in their office during lunch break, who bullies those as unfortunate as herself, who raves in house parties from Hackney to Tottenham, who once wanted more from life than looking after her mother, who had dreams once, but killed them in exchange for a 1st Generation iPod. And found love, and resolution in unexpected places.

Boisterous, sharp, and moving. Chewing Gum Dreams is a coming of age one-girl play that recalls four consecutive days in Tracey Gordon’s life that lead to the onset of her adulthood.

*posh grown up voice* I hereby invite you to CHEWING GUM DREAMS, my FIRST EVER PLAY!!

Meet Alice.

26 Dec

Hey Guys!

Been wanting to tell you about this piece of theatre for a while…I really think you should come. I’m definitely going and it’s PAY WHAT YOU CAN so you’ve got nothing to loose really.

Marene Miller has created a weird and wonderful experience…

MEET ALICE

Image

A Site-Specific Piece of One by One Theatre on a canal boat called Alice

One by One is this alternative style of theatre whereby YOU are the ONLY audience member (so it’s “one by one”), the next audience member goes in after you and has a different experience…or the same experience depends on the “show”.

As for Alice…

You will be given a key one at a time and invited to step inside a creaky old canal boat. This is a tailor-made performance for each individual audience member.

DATES

10 – 15 January | 8 – 10 pm
Sunday 15 | 5 – 8 pm
You MUST reserve by emailing Alice@meetalice.co.uk with your preferred date.

There are Limited Places and some days are already completely sold out!

Let Alice take you on a journey without setting sail.

Wrap up Warm
It’s All About You

Please note that this is a Pay What You Can Event. Though they won’t ask for your money, there will be a hat for you to place your donations in.

Guess I’ll see you after!

Hello Hello HELLO!!!

TIRED OF THAT Volume III : Relationships

31 Jan

Girls and guys that think it’s cute to act dumb. Girls; the only men attracted to that, are the kinda men that wanna pick you up by your left ankle and throw you around a room, and guys…that is NOT ATTRACTIVE, you can be as cute as sweet potato pie, and it might even get you somewhere for a hot minute, but once everyone realizes your brain is like a BIG EMPTY CARDBOARD BOX they ain’t gonna want anything to do with you; you don’t have to go to school- but I am TIRED of people not educating themselves on any level.

Women who are looking for ‘The One’…girl…if you’re looking to make that Disney mindset permanent you’ll be saying that in your 60’s.

When people get at me for being single, why are you more concerned than I am? Has God told you something? NO? Then back off, THEN when you get a partner you look at me like I was the only one that wasn’t picked for gym class, chances are you’ll break split up just like all the other partners you’ve had, and why? Because you’ve never been single in your life and you might need some time to find out who you are without Tom Dick and Harry telling you they love you and you’re amazing. Tell yourself your amazing- let’s see how easy it is for you to believe that and be secure.

If you DON’T like someone in a romantic way DON’T call them all the time, DON’T flirt with them, DON’T take them out for a little ‘justthe2ofus’ on their birthday, DON’T describe all their attributes and say that’s what you’re looking for in a partner, DON’T…Ohhh I see! You do like them but you’re not ready? Erm…how about that’s really self-centred, silly and selfish? Think about the other person you’re messing about and confusing.

I cannot stand people who don’t admit to lying in a relationship…the cards are really not in your favour, you might aswell come clean..but do you? NO. You find another way to wriggle out of the lie, you’re not IAN BEALE from Eastenders, this is real life, your partner will not leave you in Season 5, THEY WILL LEAVE YOU NOW.

People that think it’s OKAY to LIE in a relationship if the TRUTH will damage it. ANOTHER LIE you tell YOURSELF

Guys that don’t admit how they feel…like I said…this ain’t TV…you don’t finally admit to your feelings in Season 5 ‘coz she won’t be there…she’ll be married…to someone that isn’t you…obviously. THIS IS FOR YOU- call her, and tell her now, if she’s got two brain cells she already knows anyway! lol

PEOPLE THAT HAVE SEX THEN WONDER HOW THEY GOT PREGNANT…maybe if we pray…the baby will go…?

Girls that get pregnant out of wedlock; don’t mature from it or grow; then try and give me relationship advice like nothing happened just ‘coz they’ve got a kid-no offence, but I’m cool yeah? Having a baby doesn’t make you a woman or give you some automatic wisdom; it’s natural; all you did was have sex, gosh…not encounter the burning bush.

Guys that secretly have sex with men…then marry WOMEN…You’re WRONG. Come clean NOW! If you like men, BE A MAN and tell the truth!

DON’T BREAK UP WITH PEOPLE…THEN GET BACK WITH THEM…THEN BREAK UP WITH THEM AGAIN…if you’re gonna have the strength to break someone’s heart, don’t get guilty and undo it to make them feel better; THEY will learn that your break up will have a positive effect on them in the future- you caused them pain-it is NOT your role to heal them 5 minutes later. It’s like someone beating you senseless then sewing stitches on the wounds.

Girls that ask other guys to ask guys to ask his guy if his other guy Terrell LIKES THEM. URGH. PLEASE. I’ve been the ‘guy that asks’…on many occasions in my life, but I would never be the girl…I just think it’s a little off man.

You were with your man for 3 months and you broke up, it’s day 11, WHY r u still crying? CHILDREN IN AFRICA ARE DYING

TELEPHONE OPERATORS THAT RANDOMLY START FLIRTING WITH YOU…romantic CHEMISTRY…and electricity wires> 2 DIFFERENT THINGS

PEOPLE THAT LIE AND SAY THEY’RE IN RELATIONSHIPS WHEN THEY ARE NOT…although I have done this before, this really is a pathetic disgrace.

Women who don’t do anything but sit there wishing they could get a man/husband GET A LIFE FIRST

Wha gwan sis? Hmm so now that you’ve got a man you’ve gained a stone and ain’t retouched your hair since the 3rd date? How come so many women only take physical care of themselves when they are single…like they only do all that stuff to GET a man *Get-a-man-lock-the-door-on-him*

I HAD A DREAM, YOU WERE MY WIFE AND I WAS BUYIN YOU BARE STUFF…Hahaha!!! NEVER.

“OH I’M SO SORRY, COULDN’T MAKE IT BABY, GOT CAUGHT UP AT WORK, WOULDA CALLED BUT….I’m a cheater so…goodnight, see you in the morning.”

People that break up with someone then find another partner a week later to fill a void; are you the only person that doesn’t see you’re on some temporary ‘rebound’? I mean, once the word ‘rebound’ was created BEING ON the rebound should have ceased.

I’m going to repeat this one because I have a feeling a lot of people will identify with this one…

If you DON’T like someone in a romantic way DON’T call them all the time, DON’T flirt with them, DON’T take them out for a little ‘justthe2ofus’ on their birthday, DON’T describe all their attributes and say that’s what you’re looking for in a partner, DON’T…Ohhh I see! You do like them but you’re not ready? Erm…how about that’s really self-centred, silly and selfish? Think about the other person you’re messing about and confusing.

Feel free to drop a comment of identification/appreciation/orlackoftheprior lol

TIRED OF THAT Volume II : People

18 Jan

Jheeze, men and women that actually believe their apparent ‘good looks’ are a gift from God. Let me break something down to you…the concept of ‘good looks’ is not a permanent thing- it’s a trend, and it changes with time, ‘chinky eyes’ are IN NOW, please don’t sit there and say it’s a gift from God because in 10 years time when ‘chinky eyes’ are OUT you’ll be kicking yourself and looking for that scripture about ‘the gift of good looks’ that you never read.

TIRED OF THAT…VOLUME I : CHURCH

8 Jan

TIRED OF THAT

If we were all the same…we wouldn’t all be needed, God knows me from my head to my toe and last time God and I checked…I WASN’T YOU. Stop imposing YOUR LIFESTYLE CONVICTIONS on other Christians!

People in the UK that support Gospel Artists because…drum roll please…BECAUSE NOTHING! You don’t even care about their music, in fact, you DON’T LIKE their music! So why are you going to their album launch? Why are you following them on twitter, why are you clapping and screaming for them after their two-bit set? This isn’t ‘give a dog a bone for good behaviour’ this is their life! That’s why you have hundreds of artists trying to ‘make it’ that quite frankly won’t because you can have as much passion as you want..if you’re not decent at the technical part your passion is being channeled in the wrong way…but because YOU keep leading them on; they’ll never know it! Let them find their purpose and stop stringing them along.

You can get your ears pierced, just the bottom bit of course, if you get another piercing anywhere else on your ear or anywhere else your body YOU HAVE CROSSED THE BORDER INTO SIN.

Some people are STILL judging others…that’s so late

TIRED OF ANY “DENOMINATION” that believes they will be the only “DENOMINATION” to enter the gates of heaven…You may just find life’s Holy After Party a little different than what you were expecting.

I CUT MY HAIR AND SOMEONE ASKED ME “IS THAT BIBLICAL”…erm….get out?

ARGH! Christian girls that lie and say they are virgins when they are NOT, I’m coming from the world honey I can see it in your eyes. PLUS it makes people like ME who had sex with ONE GUY before I even believed in God look like some kinda Ex-Prostitute with some extreme P4CM testimony..it’s really not that deep.

“harhar! Do you go to one of those happy clappy churches?! har har” …Is it funny though? KMT.

God is NOT deaf…you don’t have to shout at Him ALL THE TIME. Shouting TO the Lord..and shouting AT Him are two different things.

People that are THE NICEST PERSON EVER to Gospel Artists/Friends of Gospel Artists/Event Organisers..then totally ignore and brush off those they haven’t seen all over twitter and facebook…true colours…not everyone wants to be in involved in ‘Entertainment’…be nice to everyone…’coz God is watching you.

Why do you ask artists to perform for FREE ‘coz it’s ‘free entry’-“hallelujah”-then take a massive ‘Love Offering’..and then don’t show no love to those that contributed by dividing it- TIRED OF THAT> and believe me, that’ll come back on you! lol

People who leave London to go on ‘missions’ helping poor people and dying kids in Africa, then come back here, see the poverty on London streets and don’t do jack…I thought you liked helping people? FAKE. You just like traveling.

Gospel artists that rap about how much they ‘flee’ from sex…when they are sexually active, I’M REALLY STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND THE LOGIC ‘coz if you perform that song live, ain’t some part of you LYING? If you’re having sex, WRITE ABOUT IT…I dare you..I dare you to write the truth in your lyrics and set someone FREE instead of listeners clapping their hands, nodding their heads, and learning ZILCH.

People that get angry at 1 member of a church and NEVER GO TO ANY CHURCH EVER AGAIN, SOMBOWDY SHOUT ‘SILLY’!

MY GOSH..Christian men that struggle with lust and blame it all on women RAIL ON! We’ve all heard that before, if women disappeared off the face of the earth you’d still be struggling brother don’t play, go to a male prison, you’ll struggle so much you’ll have sex with men (lemme guess, YOU? NEVER!..You best stay on the straight and narrow ‘coz you don’t wanna test that)- maybe you need to keep control of your mind and that Pandoras Box we call your pants…be honest with yourself..when you’re sitting in your room all by yourself, with all your shameful thoughts, there’s no girls there are there..? Just you and your mind…be a man and admit you got issues. Rule NO.1 of being a grown up; stop blaming other people for your downfalls.

Artist that dilute their content when they get signed…I have not supported you all these years for you to turn into this jack of all nonsense.

ARTISTS that stand on stage and tell me “MAKE SOME NOISE! EVERYBODY SCREAM!!”…Erm…you’ve got the mic why are you telling ME to scream, and you’re the one performing so why don’t YOU make some noise?

Hello there… 🙂 would you like to take part in our survey…? 🙂

Michaela’s Review of Janelle Monáe LIVE @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire

7 Dec

Hey!

It’s 6 minutes after midnight…and there are a few things I should be doing before I go to bed; I need to write a blog on the gigs I had in Rotterdam (I WILL get to that tomorrow)..I need to call my producer to arrange my next studio session, use my exfoliating wipes and take my makeup off, find my headscarf to wrap my hair, think of more ways to sort out this life of mine that seems to be evermore creatively spiralling (…out of control). But there is something I need to blog about first…it’s Janelle Monáe. Continue reading

Michaela tours Rotterdam wins Awards, gigs, and other thingies!

2 Dec

Hey Guys!

It’s a lot of things man…I finished drama school today (I’ll tell you all about that later in DSD 35)

OH MY GOSH, GORDON BENNETT! I fly away to do a weekend tour of Rotterdam in 12 hours!! I’ll be performing poetry and leading a masterclass with the hottest poets in Rotterdam!

Have I packed? No

Am I ready? No

Am I nervous? Yes

Am I excited? Extremely, I wanna meet knew people and make new friends, and now I’m seeing it as an opportunity to get some headspace and ‘me’ time in a hotel. I’ve realised how important it is…when I don’t have ‘Michaela-Time’ my time is only invested in the lives of other people…and I kinda forget who I am a little bit…and everything I can be.

The last time I went to any european country was Switzerland when I was about 14..I remember sleeping in a bed under a sky of cockroaches with my sister and my mum contemplating whether death would be more entertaining (as 14yr old teens like me do lol)..it’ll be better this time round..I have a feeling Rotterdam will be amazing…

I’m grateful for the opportunity, yesterday I was chilling with a fellow poet; who is extremely talented, we were musing on the fact that in London/UK it seems you can’t be “successful” unless you start out the same way every other poet did; went to the same ‘teach-me-how-to-be-a-poet-like-you’ workshops, got mentored by the same poets…It sometimes all seems a little egotistical, and like the typical workplace, it seems those lower in the ranks seem to be working the hardest, and listening to their works; they inspire me much more than those I am supposed to deem as ‘dons and legends’ (apart from Kat Francois; she really is a legend, and her workshop course was great 🙂

So poets/mc’s/wordsmiths…if the door keeps closing in your face, get some bricks make your own house, with your own little wooden door with no lock and key; that way you can go through, and you can leave the (unbiased, non-judgemental) door open for others to walk through after you.

Those in Rotterdam that follow my website (‘coz there’s probably like..millions of them, right? LOL) ; all you gotta do is google ‘MICHAELA THE POET ROTTERDAM’ and you’ll find info on websites…in dutch; a language I don’t understand, these sites could be saying anything about me lol (thank God for freetranslation.com), love you ROTTERDAM!!!! 😡

UPDATES

I won Best Gospel Act at the GMA’s!!! Ain’t that deep? Coz I didn’t ask you to vote! AND YOU DID!! Thanks sooo much!! I wasn’t even at the ceremony, I was stuffing food down my beak in bed watching X-Factor..thanks so much, you make me wanna do another free concert with cake…maybe even tea this time!!! And well done to all the other nominees, because I love ’em all; Matthew Allen, Marsha Garrick, Rachel Kerr, The Ambassadors (I don’t know who else was nominated and it’s not on the site, sorry if I haven’t mentioned you!! x)

Look out for a set I’ll be doing in the OHTV Studio’s! Catch that on TV (Sky Channel 199) sometime near Christmas!

December the 23rd is LOVE LOUNGE in Brixton at “DAHLAK” (256-258 Brixton Road, London Sw9 6AQ) I’ll be doing a set with full band..NEW NEW NEW TRACKS!!!

January 23RD is JAZZ FUNK’N’SOUL! This will be at the NOTTINGHAM ALBERT HALL! And Terri Walker is with me on the line up so that should be fun (I love it when celebish people do gigs with me coz loadsa people turn up that don’t know me and wonder who the heck I am…then I get to surprise them by being a half decent artist! woohoo!)

Love you!!!

I’ll keep you updated!..I should probably start packing now.

Rarely do people get to the bottom of these things. If you did…you get to find out that I’m recording my album with amazing producers and will have two releases next year :-P,

ON TERRELL TAKING TINA TO TINSEL TOWN

13 Nov

For many years tinsel town has been the spot, it’s become the hangout place due to it’s 24/7 availability and comfortable vibe. After many-a gospel event it’s been the place the ‘cool’ people and artist crews hang out, after raves in central london tired yet hungry party-goers stop by for milkshakes and cajun chicken burgers; it’s the economic place to go for a birthday if you don’t wanna stay in the ends and go nando’s like last year, and of course, it’s linking central for the new generation of hormone pumping teens that managed to save some of their EMA till the end of the week. Tinsel Town is accessible to all

Apart from you Terrell.  Continue reading

I was having a conversation with a friend last week. She was saying she wanted to become more forthright with ‘guys’. When it comes to the time when she quite likes someone (you know..in THAT way of ways?) she wants to be able to just open her mouth and tell them

“I like you” Continue reading

MEN.

Have you met that guy who is really insecure? But his insecurity manifests itself in extreme pride? He loves those girls who are a little ‘dim’, and if they’re not dim they must be in particularly vulnerable circumstances so he can be the guy that ‘saves’ them?

But it’s not real ‘saving’ he doesn’t actually know how to ‘rescue’ anyone; it’s more like rescuing beef from a burger; Continue reading

Michaela The Poet’s review on MARIO at the Indigo2

31 Jul

Hey !

So there were a few things I was supposed to do today; watch Eastenders on iPlayer, watch the UK version of that ‘Witches’ documentary on 4OD, put my gig dates in my calendar and sort out my spontaneous and somewhat clumsy lifestyle. I’m supposed to go out to the vegan cupcake shop before 12pm, I haven’t even done my blogs yet; I was supposed to write about ‘The Daddy Issue’ about ‘ASOS’, about ‘Online Dating’…but this blog is just distracting me….I have to get this out of my system. It’s terrible guys…this blog is a review on…. Continue reading

Most of all, I regret not realizing I was worth more than this my darling Situation,
