So here’s what happened, this record label named Warner Brothers Records heard Bon Qui Qui’s single, “I’m A Cut You” and offered her a record deal! Low and behold, we have “Gold Plated Dreams”!
I still can’t believe that I…I mean she, has a record deal at a major label and actually released a full album. I’ll be honest, I was ready to let this character die on the internet because I was just done with her. I got all “artsy” on myself and was like, (in Shakespeare/thespian/snobby voice) “I’m an artist. I am more than this one character! I have many leather bound books!” blah blah blah. Then I had to stop and think about why I’m doing what I’m doing. Is it just for me and my own happiness? Or do I do what I do because I love to make people laugh and bring them joy?
This career that I have is bigger than me. I feel that I have been called into this industry to bring love, laughter and joy to people! If Bon Qui Qui is doing just that, who am I to pull the plug on her because I feel I have something to prove? Who am I trying to prove it to? Haters? Other comedians? Other actors? People with clout? I decided that I didn’t need to prove anything to anyone. I just needed to commit to this gift that I’ve been given and follow through on what ever I feel God has put on my path in this journey called life.
I am so HONORED that I get to be Bon Qui Qui. Although the inspiration for this character is misunderstood at times, her only reason for existing is to make people laugh while pointing out that we all have a little bit of attitude in us regardless of what neighborhood we’re from.
