The day Ne-yo sold us the greatest dream


Singer- songwriter Ne-yo released the single “Miss Independent” in the year 2008 off his album titled: Year Of The Gentleman. The song speaks about all the characteristics he believes an independent woman possesses. He expresses how much he needs a woman like that in his life.

I’m not even going to wait to get to the conclusion to tell us why it’s impossible to date “Miss Independent”… “Miss Independent” is a friggin SPINSTER!!!!!

Think about it. Miss Independent (referred to as “she” from now onward):

  • Walks like a boss
  • Talks like a boss
  • Moves like a boss
  • Do what a boss

By this line we should both have established that she must be a boss. No not a bows. She is your employer-think The Proposal.

Let us continue. She:

  • Got her own thing and that’s why you love her right?

So this lady who is doing all this walking and talking and moving like a boss, ensuring that her manicure complements her pedicure, and has got her own thing; is now expected to have some time to spend?

Ne-yo continues to tell us that she:

  • Can do for herself
  • Does not need your help
  • Car AND crib is about to be paid off

hahahahahahaha bear with me I’m almost there….

  • Her favourite thing to say is “don’t worry I got it”- Yes like your mom
  • She must want him but not need him

Guess what the next line is????? THAT’S THE KIND OF GIRL I NEEEEEEED

So we add all these requirements up and behold! WE GET A SPINSTER.



SPINSTER: The woman Ne-yo describes in Miss Independent

                     An unmarried woman, usually beyond the usual age for marriage (this definition makes me cringe because there is no “right usual age” for marriage)

                     Basically a woman who is too busy getting hers to focus on your needy ass 🙂

 So that ladies and gentlemen, is who is being described in this song. Oprah, Tyra and many other great women, who have everything they want, who don’t need a man, who own their lives and who are independent. The “Miss Independent” men are looking for, who needs absolutely nothing from a man, does not actually need a man. It only makes sense. If I have everything I need, and my money can buy me anything I want, then what do I need a man for?
