Remember When...

Whenever my friends and I get together we always end up reminiscing about the past and laughing at things we did when we were younger or whatever. Our sentences always start off with "remember when..." and then some crazy story will follow. Well, I decided to put some "Remember Whens" on here about celebrities.
Remember when Nelly used to wear that band-aid on his face (I hated that thing)...

Remember when Kelis first came out, she had that screaming song called "Caught Out There" which I actually liked...
Remember when Destiny's Child had 4 members...
Remember when Murder Inc. was hot...
Remember when Monica, Brandy, and Aaliyah were the hottest female singers out (all of their debut albums came out around 94-95)...
Remember when TLC was the best group out. Period. I was always Left-Eye. And don't act like you never picked which member you were, lol...

Girl, I'm feeling you on all of these. The Brandy, Monica, Aaliyah, & TLC days was the greatest. And the old DC was 10xs better in my opinion. And I LOVED the Kelis song... I always wondered why she never really got noticed back then b/c I absolutely loved the "Caught Out There" song. Nelly looks TOO much like my ex. What happened to Murder Inc? I guess everybody truly does only have 15 minutes.

Do everybody remember when your momma used to put those multi-colored beads in you hair with aluminum foil and you used to go outside and play and when got back in the house half of your beads were gone, an you knew she wanted to curse you out but she just put more beads in you hair. An do anybody remember Kenya and Tiffany dolls. An arguing over who was going first when we played jump rope.(daydreaming) Those were the good ol' days. Oh yeah and Iceees.

LOL... OMG, I so remember the beads. When I would go to school I would get teased that I had aluminum foil in my hair, so I started having my mom do it with the rubber band and bead at the end so I wouldn't get teased. I had a Kenya Doll. Awww things were much more simpler then!! I miss it!

Nelly:Nothing has changed with nelly he was wack then and he's wack now lol the only difference is he has more money.

Kelis:I loved kelis from the start she reminds me of myself a very wild different not wanting to be like the rest type of person.I think she gets slept on.Its like this industry dosent like people who are different they only want the followers i hate that :(

Destinys child:If you look at these pictures of kelly compared to the recent pictures of her at the walk of fame you can cleary see that she has had alot of work done to her nose.I liked them better now the other 2 girls were dead weight.

Murder inc was wack i didnt see what was all the hype about them for they milked the hell outta those 15 mins tho.Now each and every one of there careers are finished.Llyod is doing city trend commercials...SMFH

Monica was the best of brandy and aaliyah.Aaliyah was pretty and could dance but i dont think she could sing and brandy she was okay i liked some of her songs but i dont think she was better then monica.

I dont really remember when tlc came out was it like 91 or 92? I was like only 2 or 3 years old but if i had to chooose my fav member it would be lefteye!!! remember when she burned someone's house down? R.I.P to both her and aaliyah

oh my gooodness i loved that kelis song, i would listen to it in the morning to wake me up before school. I hated the band-aid on nelly, i'm glad he took it off. I liked DC with the original four members. Would beyonce still be the hottest chick in the game if aaliyah was still around?

said...

Brandy was definately the best. I miss those days. everybody had something different to offer. now, everybody's competing to be the same girl (you know who).

^LOL. I hear that Lloyd City Trends commercial every morning. Damn shame.
Man this is bringing back memories...
I miss the old Destiny's Child. I luved me some Latavia. I thought she was/is beautiful.
Murder Inc: whatever.
Man, back in the day Brandy, Monica, and Aaliyah was doing it big. All very taleneted. Monica was my fave though. R.I.P Aaliyah
LOL, @ Ceci. Man, I had a Tiffany and a Kenya doll!!

said...

wow...memories. I never really like TLC after 'Ain't too Proud to beg'. they just couldn't sing in my book but then they came out with Creep and became my favorites again for a while. lol

i like DC better when they had 4 members Latavia was the girl! she repped for the dark skinned ladies! lol

i LOVED Monica when she first came out. she was a little too grown but the sister could SING! she fell off though. i never liked Brandy, she always sounded like a cat in a bag to me & Aaliyah didn't really grow on me until 'If Your Girl only Knew'. she didn't have the best voice but she had a certain appeal.

Murder Inc. was ALWAYS WACK AS HELL. i fail to understand how they sold any records with the wack crap they spewed.

Nelly was hella skinny when he first came out. thank God he hit the gym & buffed up. lol

I love Kelis first cd, it's her best work. It was so different and refreshing, I still listen to it. That Bossy crap she can keep. But I do like her new 'do.

Kelly and Beyonce have had a lot of reconstruction wow. They look like 2 totally different people. Latoya (I think that's her name) was the prettiest girl in the group, that's why she had to go lol.

Murder INC was always horrible.

Was never fond of Monica, Brandy, TLC or Aaliyah...maybe because I was way grown when they were popular.

LeToya Luckett's (original member of DC)debut album titled LeToya drops July 2006! Her debut single, "Torn", can be heard at Letoya.net and Vibe.com.

Holla!

And I agree with one of the posters. Kelly definitely has had some nose work done (and a lower lip reduction, from what I've heard).

My friend thought Nelly was so fine. I never saw it back then, but he is a mini LL right about now.

Kelis' first album was wonderful. Get ALong With You was my favorite song on that CD.

DC3 is better than 4. Hell B dont need non of them no way

Umm...Murder Inc was NEVER hot. They have been WACK from jump. Ashanti has the hottest beats but her singing is wack. Ja is a monkey who should have kept Christina Milian singing his damn hooks. Charli well all I can say is she is just wrong.

Monica needs to go back to her first album for inspiration and drop another like that. By far that is her best album.

Aaliayh...dang man....if she was still alive half the chicks singing wouldn't even be around. She would give B some competition.

Brandy need to go sit up in her room some more and get back to old days. That remix she had with Yoyo, Latifan was the joint.

TLC...yeah man they were the shit. Crazy, Sexy, Cool is still one of my favorite CDs. I always wanted to be T-Boz. I loved her raspy voice!!!

Aww this made me smile and sad at the same time. Girl I thought I WAS Monica! LOL, I used to pretend like I was Chilli.

TLC is the best female group ever. The most original, the strongest, the most independent thinkers, the most upfront about their messages, the realest, the dopest performers, they'll always be the best. I was Chili cause I loved her voice and natural sex appeal, never needed to try hard to be sexy, plus she never wore much make up, just like me.

Destiny's Child would have been a WAY huger phenomenom had they kept LeToya and LaTavia. LeToya and Kelly were the prettiest to me. These girls used to be so perfect together, and their HARMONIES WERE FLAWLESS. Michelle is decent, but we'll never have better harmonies than what we had with Kel, B, Toy and Tav.

Aaliyah, Brandy, and Mo. Aaliyah will always be my favorite. The most original, mysterious and prettiest. I love her.

Kelis was out of the box imagewise at that time, too bad now she wanna go the oochie skank route with her new video Bossy not to mention her song is wack.

Nelly's always been CORNY AS HELL!

Murder Inc, that's one crew I couldn't stand, I don't miss none of them cats.

im sry but murder inc was the shit...........when they came out wit put it on me, between me and u, when i cry, then when ashanti came out they expolded ...yall know yall was banging that shit.....if it wasnt for 50 cent i think they would still be popular...my opinion





Nee

said...

Nelly is hit or miss with me--some pictures he looks good, some he looks like shit but one thing that never changes is I don't think he can rap.

I LOVED Caught Out There--I had never heard anything like it before and it took a minute to grow on me but I really appreciate her originality. Same thing with TLC--originality, originality, originality.

Kelly Rowland's ass has come a looooooooong way baby. I don't know if she's had work or not but I repeat, she's come a loooooooooooong way.

Look how R.Kelly's just lurking in the background like a damn predator on Aaliyah's album cover...LOL...anyway, LOVED this era...

Murder Inc. can't even get a comment.

LMFAO I do I do!!!,Remember those beads with the foil.My mom would do em to my hair each and every day they were soooo ugly.She would put different colors each night to match the color of my outfit and the color of the plastic high top Reeboks that I was going wear.I think they were called princesses' I had all colors LMAO omg those were the days makes me want to cry because back then you had no worry's no problems your mom and dad made everything better.I miss the 90's everything was so much better music,TV just everything but hey we cant go back in time.I loved all of them Monica,Brandy and Aaliyah.Each of them paved the way for some of our favorite singers today such as beyonce,Ashanti,Christina Milian,Ciara,Rihanna and the list goes on they all had a way paved for them.Sadly they don't get credit for what they accomplished.I think one of them should wear the crown as the princess of hip hop&r&B,not Ashanti.Mayneeee can someone please tell Nelly to go to the dentist ASAP.

Damn I remember all this maann. Nelly was aight with the Country Grammar (really contagious) then he wanna bring all the Lunatics in it and messed up his career (IMO)

Kelis...I didn't like her until she had cameos on N.O.R.E. "SupaThug", "Busta What It Is Right Now" and ODBs "I Gotcha Money"... that "I hate you so much right now" was the ULTIMATE man bashing song and I HATED IT...my ex would subliminally sing that to make a point.

It was OBVIOUS LeToya and Latavia was the BEST lookin in the group (at that time) boyyyy yall couldn't tell me Latavia wasn't my boo. And Kellz HAS come up a LOTTTTT (praying she just grew into her looks) she is the MOST now.

I don't care wut nunna yall say Murda Inc was the SHIT (pre-ASHANTI/ Charlie B-more). Vita and Ja Rule and Cadillac Tah...they was IT! That Ja Rule, Vita and Lil Mo joint was on point.

Sad to admit it but I didn't start feeling Aaliyah til "Need You Tonight" and the One And A Million CD came out then I went and got the first cd, then I became her BIGGEST FAN, Missy and Timbaland really took her music to new heights. Monica had the voice, but I REALLY was a Brandy fan (WAS), B just went downhill when Aaliyah blossomed.

TLC was indeed Crazy Sexy Cool.

Kenya dolls!!!! I remember that!!!

I used to LOVE tlc. I used to pretend I was all of them. I played the tape until it broke. Loved them and Kris Kross!
I also had Brany, Monica, and Aaliyah's first album. It was such a good time for our music.

Looking at DC, I can sort of see what you guys were saying about their faces looking different. More contoured.

Kelly's teeth look different. Damn, she was rough back then! The two they kicked out were beautiful. Even Beyonce's face looks different to me.

For sure the good day's I was a house dancer with baggy jeans oh my god you could not tell me I was not the 4th member of TLC or Aaliyah back up funny!!! Murder inc. had a run keep it real. Never notice though Beyonce and Kelly have really had face work done look's like the nose's have been change look's better guess you have to do what make's you happy! Monica what the business. Brandy what I wanta be down man I 'm gettin old!

said...

Yep, I remeber!! What about..... Brandy's Wannna Be Down remix?
Kelis' Ghetto Children song?
Aaliyah's AT Your Best remix?
Monica's Why I Love You?
Murder Inc.'s Always on Time?
(the "instrumental" was hot)

Never liked Destiny's Child or brought any of their music.

Glad Beyonce went solo!!

If those pictures are not proof that Michelle (definetly) and Beyonce(maybe) had their noses done, I don't know what is. They got good plastic surgeons.

said...

OH MY GOODNESS! I was just getting ready to post about Kelly and Beyonce having nose jobs. I know for sure that Kelly had one, but after looking at the pics I am almost certain that Beyonce had one as well. I know Beyonce had lipo done to her stomach, because I saw the pictures of her w/ he bruises. Oh well, money buys beauty that's for sure.





Yeen Know

said...

Nose job or no nose job, I'd STILL wax dat ass. She looks GREAT now!! So if she got one then all I got to say is they did a good ass job. Kelly seem like a down ass chick with a lot of personality (just finished re-reading that old KING mag issue she was featured in) I tell u one thing I wouldn't cross her ass cuz she cuts!!

remember when Brandy's Never Say Never came out i was the first in line to buy it. monica was alright i never really liked the way she used to hold her notes, she kinda sounded like a goat, i didn't really start feeling Aaliyah until One In A Million

remember when Mary J Blige's Share My World came out, whooooo, and Toni Braxton's Secrets, i could just go on & on

this definitely took me back.. I remember being a freshman in high school when Aaliyah came out and me and best friend, who is still my best friend now used to be singing the hell out of Back and Forth after school!

Kelis' first album was great and I love the track "Get Along With You." Now she's on some other shit and I'm not sure if I'm feeling her music lately.

LeToya was the prettiest in DC4, I remember when they came out, I was in high school and I hated them. lol. I DETESTED "no, no, no" lol and I've never been a DC fan.. oops.. But, Kelly DEFINITELy had the BOMB ASS nose job... Kelly now looks the best, she just had to grown into her looks.

2001-2002 was when Murder Inc was on top as I was finishing college. GOod memories. Fun times. Were they wack, yes, but it was hot at the time!

Damn, I remember TLC from jr. high.. and me and two of my friends dressed up as them for Halloween.. I was chilli, but I actually never had a favorite member.

Out of Brandy, Monica, and Aaliyah.. Baby Girl was always my favorite and continues to be my favorite. But, I do know that Monica can sing the best out of all of them, but she just never really was able to make it big.

nice reminiscent post!

You know Beyonce could not have anyone in the group the looked better then her that is why she dumped the 2 chicks,and picked up Michelle.

Mannn, I loved Kelis from the start, Nelly was really the shit and fine as hell (still is).

Oh God, Destiny's Child? Beyonce was a mess then a she still is. Hair color changes and heavy makeup doesn't fool me. Kelly was a mess to but she really has grown into her features. The other girls were always beautiful, makes ya made don't it?

Murder Inc., always a joke from start to finish somehow. Monica, Brandy, and Aaliyah...we have yet to have any replacements. They helped me grow up! lol And TLC, can't help but love them. They also took me through life.

Man I miss Aaliyah. :-)

I just dont know what nelly see's in ashanti but uh okey dokey then. Kellis is so cute just a lil too weird.I miss Aaliyah.TL minus the C i love them & RIP LEFT EYE I LOVED U AS WELL.

Destiny's Child in my opinion would have been a better group if they had pushed egos aside and kept the other two girls.

Of course Kelly and Beyonce have had nose jobs and lyposuction (Bey)...but that's part of the celeb life style.

Would Beyonce be the hottest chick in the game if Aaliyah was still around?

Well...remember she's the hottest because Jay said so...and we all know how Jay felt about Aaliyah...lol
