Yeah, yeah, we know that this has been covered lots of places today. But I must report: Lil’ Kim has a blog — “A Year and a Day” — and she’s going to be updating the general public on her stay at the Federal Detention Center at 7th and Arch.
Frankly, we don’t get why they just don’t let her out into the world. Haven’t the people in the government heard how important citizen journalists are? Haven’t they heard how cool, how influential, how groundbreaking blogging is? We here at Philadelphia Will Do demand that Lil’ Kim be freed from jail so she can update her blog more often. Frankly, even a statement a week isn’t enough. If citizen journalist Lil’ Kim isn’t able to blog unemcumbered, how can we take anything in the prison system seriously?
From what Kim has said so far, though, she’s doing okay in our fair city, limited blogging opportunities notwithstanding:
Of course, I wish I could be out to celebrate the release of my new album this week, The Naked Truth but instead, I am looking to take advantage of this time to work on my personal development. Thank you to all for your continued support. (Emphasis Kim’s.)
One of the comments to her post is: “JESUS CHRIST was in prison and he kept his head up.” Word. Her lawyer also comments in her post:
I was amazed at just how good Kim looked on my two visits to see her in prison last week. Even in a jumpsuit, Kim still has the style and swagger of a star.
Not guilty, y’all got to feel me.
