Tell us the Good Stuff!
Bernadette Cooper is here to save you from your un-Diva ways….
KLYMAXX, the legendary platinum-selling all female band, is known for such chart hits as "The Men All Pause," "Meeting in the Ladies Room," "Sexy," "I'd Still Say Yes," "Divas Need Love Too," and the band's biggest hit, the top five Billboard single, "I Miss You." But when you think of the groundbreaking Pop/R&B funk unit, you can't help but to salute the founding leader, musician, writer and producer, Bernadette Cooper.
With her audacious attitude, the intuitive comedic timing, her inspirational lyrics on the loving thy self, and her fierce, funky and fabulous Diva statements, Bernadette Cooper leaves you feeling good about yourself and reminding you just how much of a gem you are. Now you all know that Bernadette Cooper is my # 1 Diva. I was blessed to interview her on November 15, 2013, for CNN iReport, article entitled, "A True Diva Celebrating Life, Shedding her Past, Growing in Her New and She still Look Good!" Just recently Bernadette released her single, “I Am Your Diva Savior” from her anticipated new album “The Last Diva on Earth”. Back in our interview she shared that, “The Last Diva on Earth" is all things Diva times 10!! “The Last Diva On Earth' is simply my therapy, my manifesto. It's an intimate look at me standing alone on earth, nude and shedding the skin of my past in order to grow and live the second half of my life with peace and in happiness.”
After listening to “I Am Your Diva Savior”, I can admit that she is truly all about empowering and keeping 100 as my sons say to me. I listened to the Protect Yourself, The Revival, Dance Queen, and Love is Love versions of the song and every version gave me a different feeling and a sense of letting these men know that I am not the one so tell me the truth. Bernadette is truly keeping it real with this single, letting men know that she is abreast on the foolishness, the lies, the confusion of many men out here, the down-low games and that she don’t have time for it. She has a line in the song where she says, “You said you want a family, and I need a little history, before you get up in it, we gotta take a ride to the free clinic.” I Love it!!! Promoting safe sex and protecting yourself as a woman is vital because you never know what he is doing or who he is doing it with. Protect yourself!!!!!
Everything about this song is saying be straight up and honest with your mate, let a Diva know, give her the option to choose what she wants to do and don’t treat her like she is naïve because she is onto it and not amused. AIDS/HIV and every other sexual transmitted disease is real. So with ever high and low a man can do, we as women must cross the line and say, “Umm, not with me”. Awareness and Protection is so necessary and Bernadette is coming forward to save you from your Un-Diva Ways…
Take Heed!!!!..….. I give this single 5 stars and a round of applaud….
The Last Diva on Earth released soon!
