Celebrities & Their Lent Sacrifices

I will be the first to state, that I am not religious. Sure, I have my beliefs, but I don’t attend church services at all. Growing up in a Pentecostal, then Baptist, then Non-Denominational household, was definitely an interesting experience as a kid, that I wouldn’t want to relive.  Currently, Lent is being observed across the country, and I’ve pretty much never understood the point of it all, but who am I to judge what/how people choose to do w/their religious beliefs. I actually only thought it was something Catholics observed, but apparently I was misinformed.  I guess I should have paid attention more in church.
Of course, Lent has become a trending topic on Twitter over the past couple of days. I’ve read a few funny tweets about what people have planned on giving up, and a few that were actually serious.
I’ve even tweeted once or twice about Lent, in a jokingly way of course. A friend of mine has decided to mix Lent with Ramadan  and has given up sugar filled beverages before Sunset. I’m pretty sure that’s not how Lent is supposed to work, but whatever works for him I suppose.
Even a few celebrities have decided to make sacrifices during Lent. I’m not sure how many will stick with them, but below are a few:

Lil Kim has decided to give up on looking like an intergalactic plastic surgery abused drag queen, selling cds via paypal & stalking Nikki Minaj


Kim Kardashian will unwillingly leave black men and music alone during Lent.  Unfortunately, I feel  she’ll probably fail at both, miserably.


Justin Timberlake  will give up on making over priced jeans, that no one purchases, and his acting career,  to finally focus on making a comeback with his singing career. Seriously, people black women are tired of Robin Thicke already.

Rev Run will finally take a break from tweeting his so-called inspirational messages, and focus on getting rid of his man-bo0bs.


Speaking of tweeting nonsense, Tyrese, will avoid twitter at all costs, until he learns to  spell and construct a grammatically correct sentence; that does not include giving fucked up relationship advice.


The Jersey Shore cast will give up spray  tans, fist pumps & giving NJ a bad name.  Also, Snooki will give up on having her bare ass photographed in public.

Of course, none of these are true, but wouldn’t it be a great day if they were actually true?

    I gave up wearing my protective ‘mask’ for lent – If I knew life was going to be this liberating I would have given it up sooner! 🙂

    Dammit at that Snooki pic, I think I just “re-tasted” my dinner #nobueno. On Lil’Kim, I co-sign that x1000. As for JT, you couldn’t be more right. However I’m speaking as a big JT fan (music-wise), color me selfish, lol.
