Jimmy Crack Corn & I DO Care




i LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the spring. actually i love the fall, but i enjoy the temperate season of spring before it becomes ridiculously hot too. and around this time, the birds begin singing, flowers fragrance the air and the sun shines brightly...letting me and others know it's safe to bring out......sandals & flip-flops. but i must know, what are your thoughts about feet on display?


(i blew up the pic so it may appear a little blurry, but in case you can't see, there are 4 corns on each foot, one on the second toe, two on the middle, and one on the fourth on BOTH feet. and while her corns aren't burnt or discolored, they are very visible and crunchy looking, AND holding onto dear life over the edge of that shoe!)


i came across this picture on ybf and i couldn't believe my eyes! i know some people just have some messed up feet. some pople can't help it. some may have been dancers. some may not have been able to afford shoes that fit properly. some are just trifling. but whatever the reason, i cannot understand the need to expose the public to raggedy feet. and what bothered me about this picture is this....





she's so beautiful. this is singer keri hilson and i cannot believe that the corn display was actually cool with her. i am not discriminatory about feet. like i said, some people just have odd looking feet, but why primp them up in beautiful louboutin heels with a fabulous dress and cameras flashing? now, some people are obsessed with feet and i find that weird, but i ask, does it bother you to see some less-than-sightly feet paraded around? do you think she should have just picked a different shoe....or continued on with a french pedicure like nothing's even crackled/distorted/corntastic in the toe region? does her cuteness and the pedicure distract from the corn convention? personally, i vote for a different shoe....complete with corn pads dissolving those suckers so that they could be displayed at a later date without burning a hole in my retina...

LMAO!!!! You are too much. I hate to see women where shoes so small that their heels hang off the back. I just don't get it. The shoes don't make their feet appear to be any smaller. LOL. I hate seeing cracked skin on heels and chipped polish. UGH! That irks the heck outta me. LOL.

That's not a good look--especially not on the red carpet. She may have wanted to choose a shoe with a little more coverage....

Eb the Celeb said...

yeah...s he seriously needs to do something about that... I mean her singles aren't doing anything so the least she could do is come out looking presentable or cover them dogs up... peep-toes are in you know... they will hide all of that...

I do love her voice though...

LOL - funny post!! It really doesn't bother me if I see other women's feet looking a mess. I just think to myself, "thank the Lord my feet don't look like that!!"

I actually think the women who do parade hammer-time toes in nice shoes must have a LOT of confidence. I know I wouldn't have the guts to do it if my feet were jacked up!!

Taryn "Skinny Genes" B. said...

whoa! lol ...she should have gotten some peep toe shoes...that way she's not showing ALL of her toes...just the big toe and middle toe...sometimes less is more lol

i really don't think there is any excuse for this mess. I was a dancer (from age 10-21) and I still have a nice feet. Back in the days of dancing I always had a weekly treatment especially when I knew I did not have to perform for a while, I was on a first name basis with my local nail salon.

Its all about maintenance. and there are too many cures for corns to step out like this.

!*!*!*!*!Fresh and Fab!*!*!*!*! said...

lol, ur a mess.

well i didn't even notice till i saw this. she more than made up for this with the rest of the outfit

but still no reason to put them out there like that

Boutique Mix Fashion said...

LMAO!!! Sweet mercy!!! I guess all that glitters is not gold. hehehehee.

Smaragd said...

How on earth did u or the Camera man(whoever he/she is) see these corns? *shaking my head in total disbelief* i'm sure she didnt think pple had near x-ray vision...lol
personally, i wouldnt do that, but hey, eb already said her singles isnt making it, so maybe she cant afford DR. Scholls? and maybe she got the shoes for free...lol

Smaragd said...

@ hanging on for dear life

poor, poor feet!

Kitty said...

Why Keri?? Just why???
She's so pretty though. She probably doesn't care. I know no guy has ever asked me for some feet in the middle of the night.. I'm sure most guys would prefer a girl with a cute face and crusty feet than the other way around.

dejanae said...

Marleaux said...
