I find her comments funny given her name Raven-Symone is kind of made up and a different class of ghetto. Sometimes I get the feeling she was hired because she makes all these silly comments – they aren’t even controversial – just stupid and ignorant.
She is pretty much car crash TV which is why they have her on. Foot in Mouth disease.
My sympathy lies with in the fact Raven-Symone is emerging to be a frustrated former child who seemed to have peaked and reached her full potential in her early years. However she has fared better than Amanda Bynes but when looking at the likes of Melissa Hart, the Olsen Twins or every provocative Miley Cyrus, Raven-Symone is pretty much in limbo.
What’s really interesting is that from her comments you know she’s not an entrepreneur or a business woman. She is still a hired hand despite all the opportunities that had come her way. You know why? She’s basing a business judgement on a name. She also doesn’t think about what she says – which as business person you have to be quite measure so lets just say Raven is not as in control of her life or professional carreer as we think.
Is Symone always going to be hired hand? Where did all the money earned during her Cosby and Disney years go? Why is she reduced to making silly comments on TV, so people can make on mockery of her? Why is she so outlandish in her dress sense and comments? Why is she looking older than age? There is a need to grab attention.
It’s such a shame that she thinks she’s making sense when really she’s a puppet behind on a string to get ratings.
Then again she’s being working since she was was a few months old. Has she ever take a break? So while her peers are launching clothing lines, being spokesperson for brands, making business decision, Symone is busy trash talking on TV. A part of me hopes she’s only on this show to keep in the public eye and relevant but not for the money – since she’s worked all her life so I hope there are adequate provisions in place.
Ideally she should be putting on shows, sending treatments and being an executive producer behind the scenes. Doing something. Then again maybe she has but was unsuccessful, who knows?
However when she makes a comments that names are ghetto but she doesn’t understand what her own names signifies. Like if I read her name on an application it would leave nothing to the imagination. Even spelling Simone with a ‘y’ her parents wanted her to stand out. Luckily she went into show business. But given her origin they called her called Raven? Are you serious? It’s nice and sweet but her parents were probably thinking show business, and for her to stand out.
She never thought to ask what kind of name is Raven Symone? What does Raven Symone mean? Raven – black – bird- bad/good omen Symone – listening. It’s a made up name that sounds lyrical. A different or better class of hood.
