Dear Bow Wow,

I am not a fan of you or your music. I am concerned however with the fact that you seem to like the idea of being a thug. I understand that Toure, with whom you had a fallout with during taping of a recent interview on BET, asked some rather touchy questions. So what? That’s his job.

Now apparently there are rumors that you played this tantrum up for the cameras for a recent special involving your new album with Omarion. I would honestly like to think that is true. However, there’s something unreal to me about that line of thinking.

If you normally don’t mouth off to another in the fashion that you did to Toure, then why not just end the interview and bounce? To make threats against Toure does not say to the world that you are a man. You can easily stand up for yourself without telling your bodyguards that you are going to beat the man up.

But then I can understand that, you probably took lessons from Mr. Suge Knight. Interesting where that led him.

Now how about the questions? Toure asked Omarion if he was taking moves from Chris Brown. Omarion should have been allowed to answer the question even if he was caught off guard by what was asked of him. If I was O, I would have simply said that while Chris Brown borrows from Michael Jackson, I make my own moves.

But no, you decided that he was being rude.

Then when Toure mentioned that the chain around your neck was similar to one that Lil’Wayne wears, you should have said that you respected the man and his style and gave props to him. To accentuate the fact you are original, when the interviewer clearly didn’t see that, only confirms you are NOT original.

But no, you somehow felt that was disrespectful.

Call me crazy, but you should have had the balls to act that way in front of Ciara after she decided to shake her butt right in the very isle you were sitting at during the BET Awards. But I suppose you couldn’t do that because 25 X 2 was at the show that night. I wouldn’t respect you if you even did that to her, but if you are supposed to be a thug, they usually do that to their women as well.

And here’s another thing.  How are you gonna be a thug when you have an album with an ex-boy band member and a single that would be better suited for teeny boppers? Even the album cover is supposed to suggest something dark and sinister. When I hit play, run track one, and hear something like this, I demand my money back.

I don’t pay to listen albums where little kids talk like they are grown.

So essentially Bow Wow, you will always be Lil’Bow Bow to me. You don’t act like a person who is maturing at all. The fact alone that you felt you had to punk out Toure showcases that fact. When you can punk out Wendy Williams and Miss Jones when they say something wrong, then you can tell people you are a man.

Until then “Mr. 106 and Park” — sit the hell down!

    Wow YOu are right on the money, I saw that clip on youtube, and it makes me sick to my stomach. He had no right or reason to go off like that at the reporter. It was clearly that the reporter was trying to be funny. Bow wow is a little bitch

  • ComeAgain[!!!]

    Wow this is sad. Did you even watch the whole show? Instead of watching that one 3min clip like the whole Internet is doing. Go watch the WHOLE show and maybe you will learn something! Now until then — you sit the hell down and stop writing these so called letters.

  • ur an idiot

    2 homgirl up top even if she did watch tha whole thing…one thing can be said: BOW WOW IS A FUCKING BITCH he swear he hard, but why the fuck was he behind his body gaurds sayin all that bullshit come see me ?? yeh you right, (sarcastic) ya’ll bow wow fans into a pussy nigga sorry!

  • people just hatin

    1st dumb statment…why in the hell would he act like that towards Ciara when they were not even together…had you been paying attention you could tell he was not even watching her performance…2nd dumb statment why give wayne his props for the same chain when he said that somebody gave it to him…3rd he was standing up for his homeboy something you probably would not do…now had he been talking all that nonsense you wanted him to say you would be calling him a punk. To me Toure was the punk because if it was a joke he sure was not acting like it. He stayed in the room until he thought that bow wow left. How you 6 ft and he 4’11 and you get punk. MAN GET OUT OF HERE!

    SO WHY ARE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Amir

    lol some of ya’ll on here are sumthin else! 4 realz!!!!!!! Bow Wow is grown and people just don’t know how the fuck to accept the fact of that shit, and he’s 20 years old! Bow Wow is maturing and giving us sumthin that we really wanted to hear from him, and yet and still people are unsatisfied! lol Lawd ham mercy they gettin bad press. Does a rap artist only have to rap about guns, sex, and drugs, to get respect? Has this music industry only come to Brown Paper Bags and Duffle Bag Boys? Why can’t there be positive rappers in the industry? People say that Bow Wow is not hard, but when he actually does show some backbone when being disrespected AND without mentioning gun related retaliation he gets called “gay” or “soft”. But when Lil Wayne says “If you diss me, I’ll murder you and your children” he gets more respect. lol smfh…. it’s sad!

  • WHAT?

    who in the hell is matthew milam?…

    Ohhhh I know, I know…HE’S A HATER!!!!

  • Sbaby

    Matthew I really would listen to your argument if only you could write better. You write like a 6th grader! DAMN!

  • Me

    To #8:

    Completely agree with you. I don’t get why in the world that people can’t accept the fact that Bow Wow has talent. He’s finding his style, because he really hasn’t developed one yet. You see that after his so-so (no pun intended) sales for his album, “Wanted,” where he first started cussing, yet keepin his style and had some coo tracks like “Caviar”, “Mo’ Money”, and “Fresh Azimiz”, he still didn’t do much for people. Then they want to say that he’s got a ghost writer when he has another pretty good album, Price Of Fame. They don’t want to give him props for anything because they don’t want to see him grow up from wha he used to be. People even bash him for growin up. It’s ridiculous. Look 50 Cent could be called a hard n*gga right? Ok, if he is, then why when this n*gga buy Ciara a plane full of stuffed animals and crap, he doesn’t get criticized and still is a G, but when Bow Wow just shows that he wantd her back, he’s bein called a p*ssy and stuff. Come on. Double standards here. It’s all of these haters that won’t let Bow Wow get anywhere near Lil’ Wayne’s status. So am I then saying that Lil’ Wayne is the only artist that America will let grow up and be fresh? I think (at least in L.A.) everyone’s on his d*ck.

    Nuff said.

    But…..if it does indeed somehow turn up to where Bow Wow was using ghost writers, after believing that he wrote his own stuff, Imma be pissed for defendin him.

  • Auntie

    Why was it even necessary to mention 50 Cent? It’s not like he and Ciara are dating. To me, it seems like your a bigger bitch than Bow Wow. It seems like your scared of 50 by saying 25 X 2.

  • Matthew Milam

    I shouldn’t be surprised that people who are fans of other people always seem to be aware of only the GOOD parts of someone. They never are aware of the bad parts.

    Prepare for a disappointment when you find out his career flatlines.
