Lo Que Pica el Gallo

Hablando de lo que pica el gallo…formando un arroz con mango.

Ni canta ni come fruta

El dicho has been rummaging through my head for the past few weeks following Los Premios Juventud that were hosted live on July 15th from right here in our own neighborhood. I know it’s a little past due and we’ve been a little m.i.a from our blog, but no te preocupes, nos estamos poniendo las pilas and we’re on it. There will probably be a post about poniendose las pilas sometime in the near future, but in the meantime, back to the talent that surrounded Premios Juventud (or the lack there of.)

Example? Puerto Rican Latin Grammy nominee Ivy Queen.

Me parace que le faltan unos tornillos a que piensa she is Grammy material but then again, there have been far worse nominees and winners. However, I’m not here to judge, you are!

I think it’s safe to say que Ivy Queen ni canta ni come fruta.

Como la palomita que no sabe cantar, the same uselessness can be said about Ivy Queen. A figure in Latin Pop, we can count on her for a one-hit wonder reggaeton single and nothing more… unless la caballota offers her services as a drag queen.

About Lyanis

I'm always a little skeptical about filling out an "About Me" section. I'm supposed to tell you about who I am, when really, as wordy as I tend to be, no one can really get to know someone from a box confined to a certain number of characters. You see, I'm a bit complicated. I don't like to admit it, partially because I like the simple things in life but truth is, we're all complicated and none of us come with instructions on how to decode one another. So in the mean time, to better understand me for me, I'll give you the basics: I'm a hometown Miami girl born to Cuban parents. I'm the only girl of 4 children still living at home with mom and dad while I work and study in hopes that one day, all this writing pays off and...well... literally pays off. I'm working on getting my Bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Communications. I tried reaching for my roots and focusing in on Spanish, pero que 'va, I like Cuban Spanish and Spanglish way better than the Spanish the teach in college. Both my parents have instilled the importance of family and togetherness in me and my siblings. For that, I'm thankful. Although at times my house resembles una casa de locos, it is that very essence that makes me a little bit more of who I am, and provides me with the material I write about here. I have big dreams for myself as well as for Lo Que Pica El Gallo. This is just the beginning of a long journey and I sure do hope you stick around to see where it takes us.

    lol Drag Queen made me laugh…. I won’t lie though I like this song. Though I could probably lip-synch and walk on a stage for much cheaper
