Throwback Video of the Week - Tia
This is the version that we are all familiar with. The girls in the video were very...wonderbread. And hey, nothing wrong with that.
But as long as I've known Toya, she's talked about the version of Please Don't Go Girl with the colored girl. I truly had no idea what she was talking about. Then one night we were on the phone and she found the broken-skinned girl version on youtube.
Because SonyBMG are selfish bastards (I call people names when I'm tired) I can't embed the video. So follow the link.
The girl in the video is a.) clearly colored, black, Spanish, Boriqua, SOMETHING and b.) old enough to be Joey's mom at the very least. But whatever. If I had seen this when I first became a New Kids fan I wouldn't have felt like I had to hide it. After a while I stopped caring. But in the beginning I felt like I was the only black girl who liked them. It was rough.
Okay, I'm for real going to bed.
