Songs For America: Just Another “Racket”

I apologize, I’ve been so busy covering the BBB tour that I’ve slighted Lady M’s equally important activities.

I know you’ve heard about the release of her upcoming hip hop album,  “Songs For a Healthier America.” The 19-track album, with song titles like “U R What You Eat” and “Veggie Luv” will be released by the Partnership for a Healthier America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Organizing For Action (OFA), previously known as Organizing for America (OFA). And Lady M will be appearing in – count them – no less than ten of the accompanying musical videos! Not rapping, butt doing what she does best; dancing:

and lecturing.

And don’t worry, the lyrics have all been carefully “curated” to make sure they are all G-rated, unlike the triple X-rated Big Guy faves, Jay-Z and Kanye (warning #2 – XXX rated!).

So I’m sure it will be a lot of fun, even though all of the artists are either unknowns or has-beens in the world of hip hop. I guess Beyoncé was busy and Jay-Z can’t do anything without using profanity and the n-word. Or maybe they had another romantic photo op in Cuba pre-booked.

And since we’re back on the fitness trail, Lady M kicked off the 2013 U.S. yesterday in Queens, N.Y., telling the sympathetic crowd that she grew up in a neighborhood in Chicago deprived of the opportunity to play tennis. She explained that she forced her children to play because it’s a white sport “a lifelong sport” that she wanted the girls to enjoy; and  she bemoaned the fact that she herself hadn’t learn to play till later in life:

“It’s a great way to stay healthy, to stay fit, it’s a lifelong sport, it’s something I’ve tried to tell my kids — I forced them into playing tennis, because I didn’t want them to be like me,[WHAT?!] but it’s a great way to stay active,”

…the first lady said. “And today I don’t worry about how good I am, because I’m not very good, so it’s easy.”

And she passed on some advice to novice tennis players on how to be just like her, not very good:

mo keep your eye on the ball“Sometimes “addressing” the ball with a loud yell will help.”

mo incoming 2“It’s best to play with your eyes open.”

She went on to sing the praises of some additional benefits to be derived from practicing your tennis game regularly:

“If you want to be good at anything, you have to work at it,” she said. “I know your parents tell you that all the time, but I want to emphasize it, if you want to be good at anything, you have to put the work in,” she said.

I wonder if that works for everything? Because it sure doesn’t seem to be working for Big Guy:

At golf, I mean.
