While I’m sure nobody is home wondering why I my artist moniker is Queen D. Scott, I’ve decided to tell you anyway because being a queen is one of the most important things about me and I figure if you’re reading this blog or listening to my music, you’d want to know a bit about my evolution. To cut down on my rambling, I’ve decided to limit this to 6 points. So, here goes:
#1: I’m tired of being a bitch.
Or a whore or a slut or whatever other name women are subjected to these days. I am the exact opposite of that. I am powerful. I am capable. I am regal.
#2: I am tired of being a nigger.
I know there is a lot of debate over whether or not there is still negative connotation to this word or if can be used in a positive light. If you’re one of those people, let’s agree to disagree. In entertainment and particularly music, there are too many “bitches” and “niggers.” I decided I needed to balance out what I was hearing and how I was referred to so I called myself a queen.
#3: I’m tired of “bros before hos.”
As if a woman’s companionship and friendship have no value. Why? Because a woman hurt you or played games? Please. That can be done by any gender. There is no need to diminish us to show solidarity of brotherhood. I’m a queen, so I compliment my king. I don’t sabotage him or his friendships.
#4: I’m not waiting for the entertainment industry to realize reasons 1-3.
If I don’t see myself as a queen and treat myself as such, who else will? How I treat myself will start to reflect not only in my own confidence, but in the company I keep.
#5: Out of respect for my community.
Me being a queen is not to put myself above others. I am a queen because a queen’s responsibility is to her people (i.e. her neighborhood, family, friends, countrymen) to listen to them, to help them in anyway and to fight for them when necessary.
#6: Because writing this anthem wasn’t enough. I had to become it and embody it.
