It's already Tuesday, so that means another edition of the sometimes icky, usually whimsical Jump One, Jump Twosday. The rules remain the same: I give you two choices; you ignore sexual orientation; you ignore living or dead status; you choose one. No wussing out by vowing to remain chaste the remainder of your life.
Jump One is Prince. He's a rock star. He's a showman. He's viewed by many as hot, hot, hot. If you hear the word "Prince" or see that bizarre symbol, you likely conjure up the image of him performing "Purple Rain" or "When Doves Cry." He seemed like the anti-Michael Jackson when he became more than a blip on a radar screen. I think of him, and I think of the women he nurtured. I'm unable to name specifics without looking it up, but I seem to recall him giving others a boost during the early days.
Jump Two is Queen Latifah. Also musically inclined, although no one could possibly think she's as talented as Prince in that regard, Latifah is an actress as well. She appears able to bring in enough box office bank to now play the lead in various movies. I've heard of her more than I've heard or seen her, but she seems to have quite the humorous streak. There are apparently rumors about her sexuality -- hey, just like the rumors about Prince's sexuality -- but she's not talking.
So, two decent ones to choose from this week, don't you think? Are you going for Jump One?
Or Jump Two?
I'm not that into Prince. Like I said, many people seem to find him oozing sexuality. I don't see it. But I do think he's one hell of a talent, so I think I'm going for the Prince rather than the Queen. I've got nothing against Latifah, but Prince gets the edge.
What about you? Who are you going to jump?
