I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I hav...e pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Find out which team he he will play for tonight 8/9c on ESPN!
"It’s funny, and I don’t know whether that’s arrogance, but I don’t feel like there is any competition, It depends on how you approach music making. For me to say that there was competition, well I would have to have approached making an album in a very different way because no-one can compete with my own life. No-one can compete with the experiences that made me write what I write."
IMO: Its arrogance, and an excuse. You are writing to be different and to sell music, but you see your not selling so here is your justification.
"I don’t write music to please anybody. I don’t write music to get on the charts. It’s nice when that happens, that’s a great defining moment, but either way I’d have written the same thing. No-one can compete with the birth of my child, no-one can compete with my reverence for God. There’s absolutely not a single person in the world that can challenge that for me."
IMO: Nope, no one can compete with her life experiences, but selling out arenas, albums, and an overall fan base then yes Kelis you are competing and losing. I liked heer music best when she first came out and of course 'Milkshake'. I had to appreciate this song due to my own set of milkshakes.

Ms. Semenya is a gold medal winner of the 800 m and 1500 m at the 2009 African Junior Championships with times of 1:56.72 and 4:08.01. In 2008 'she' won 800 m at the Commonwealth Youth Games with a time of 2:04.23 in the final.
But the real reason 'she' is being covered in the media is by her mannish looks. The real question is-- is she a hermaphrodite?!?
The International Associations of Athletics Federation demanded a gender verification test to see if she is 100% woman. If not of course, she will be stripped of her medals.
Her mom says:
"I am not even worried about that because I know who and what my child is. Mokgadi Caster is a girl and no one can change that,” she said. If you go at my home village and ask any of my neighbours, they would tell you that Mokgadi is a girl. They know because they helped raise her. I am not concerned about such things. She called me after the heats and told me that they think she’s a man. What can I do when they call her a man, when she’s really not a man? It is God who made her look that way."
If her mom says it's a girl, then...... But uummmmm this is embarrasing to say the least. Her dad and coach have acknowledged her looks but says she is female. One classmate said he did not realize 'she' was female unitl a coach divided the class into two teams (girls & boys) and Caster went to the girls side..
