If you didn’t get the memo, Omarion is out here really trying to get back in where he fits in within the R&B game. He sort of faded into the background after his massive success with songs like “Touch,” “Entourage,” and others when Chris Brown came on the scene with his baby face and sick dance moves. But there’s no time like the present for a comeback, and after receiving a good response after putting out the track “MIA,” Omarion has a new album on the way. He sat down with Vibe Vixen to talk about the project. However, the most interesting tidbit from that interview was on the art of deciphering between a groupie and a woman he’d want to have something serious with as an artist in the limelight. Maybach O, who says he was raised by only women, also talked about the power of a woman and the greatest thing he ever learned from us. Let’s discuss:
Despite the few women (or many, whatever) who throw themselves at artists, Omarion actually found himself a girlfriend. But it wasn’t easy, seeing as he claims it was hard to find a woman he could take seriously:
“It’s important how the relationship starts: the place that you meet, the setting, the class of friends they have, the homies you’re with. All of that sets the tempo. You can tell when a woman’s a woman [because] no matter what setting, she knows how to handle herself. The club is a really good example because it’s a lot going on. Any girl that looks nice, 9 times out of 10, there’s going to be a million dudes flocking her, and she handles it. A “bottle rat,” chicks that go to the club but they can’t pay for their own drink, they got in for free so they want to act super friendly with you to drink up all your Isht. If I’m in club setting, I would pay attention to if they want to stick around or they ask to stick around like, “Hey do you mind if me and my girls kick it with y’all?”
He continued to describe a respectable woman in the club:
“Those are the kind of chicks that go out to have a good time, and if they’re vibin,’ they’re vibin.’ If they’re not, they’ll do their thing. But you won’t see them at every other guy’s table.”
He was then asked what he thinks about the power women have over a man and his moods. He says that it’s truly in a woman’s nature to know how to nurture:
“It’s the ability to change things. I remember a friend of mine got shot and he called me. I was stressing. My cousin came to me while we were talking on the phone. She just started rubbing my shoulders and I totally forgot what I was mad about. She calmed me all the way down and I was good. Women have that power. I don’t know what to call it, but it’s that power, that nurturing power. The ability to change the situation by nurturing you. The encouragement, the nourishment, a woman just knows how to do that.”
And what is the greatest thing he learned from a woman?
“Patience. Women are emotional and it takes men to learn this about women. I just happened to be raised by all women so I got some of the pieces earlier in my life, but patience is a big part with the woman because you guys change so much. How you feel at 20 is different than at 14, and when you get your period, you act different. The greatest thing I learned from a woman was patience and sensitivity because you can’t always be tough. You have to have some sensitivity when dealing with a woman and her concerns, and things she goes through.”
We see you Maybach O! Check out the rest of his interview over at Vibe Vixen and let us know what you think of his evaluations of the women he deals with below.
If you want a blueprint on how to solidify a respected music career without being a household name, look up Teedra Moses. The very talented songstress has built a very faithful following from only one album and five mixtapes. The BOSS himself Rick Ross loved her music so much (and respected that she worked with one of his favorite artists Raphael Saadiq) that he recruited her into the Maybach Music Group. Since dropping the career defining Complex Simplicity in 2004, Moses tells us that she’s been touring, raising her twin sons, and working on her new album with MMG entitled The Lioness.
Check out the riveting interview and let us know what you think. Bet you’ll learn something new about the Ms. Moses.

Mary just released her newest video for the track, “Why” off the album, My Life II…The Journey Continues (Act I). This time around, Mary gets a guest appearance from Ricky Rozay (you low-key crush), who always makes songs a bit smoother (though I noticed his bars have nothing to do with what the track is about…). Mary is decked out in some fabulous fashions, as is the big man, and they switch from wearing all-black everything to looking fresh and clean in white ensembles. Mary sings about–you guessed it–a love gone wrong that she wants to get back on track, but somehow finds herself in the club when she looks like she’d rather be in the house crying. But once again, at least she looks fabulous in all her angst! Loving the song and the video as a whole isn’t bad. But what do you think? Check it out and let us know below.
