And Hades kinda just went with it, until Demeter started throwing the temper tantrum of the millenium upstairs and Zeus had to intervene because this shit was getting out of hand and its actually his job to be admistrator of justice Which considering the shit he gets up to is kinda histerical but that's another story there.

 I just love the myth of Persephone, i mean the real, original version of it,
 because it's not like she got kidnapped, no, this bitch was la-de-da-ing in a
 meadow and she just happened to find an entrance to the Underworld and she
 was like "Imma check this out. And she just wanders into the Underworid and
 discovers that hey this place ain't too bad
 Meanwhile Hades is in the background??2?? UM??? PRETTY GIRL?? WHY
 ARE YOU HERE?????? YOU AREN'T DEAD???
 And Persephone (who was originally called Kore just a little fyi) just looked at
 him and said "I like it here. I'm staying."
 And Hades kinda just went with it, until Demeter started throwing the temper
 tantrum of the millenium upstairs and Zeus had to intervene because this shit
 was getting out of hand and its actually his job to be admistrator of justice
 Which considering the shit he gets up to is kinda histerical but that's another
 story there.
 And basically Persephone wasn't a prisoner or kidnap victim at all she just
 really loved the Underworld and her (eventual) husband, and the Greeks
 feared her arguably more than her husband because Hades could be
 reasoned with but Persephone was the one laying the smack down on sinners
 and really, who wouldn't be at least a little scared of someone who's name
 means something along the lines of "the destroyer
 Basically, Persephone is amazing and everbody needs to get on her level
 garnetthefirst
 i think the best part of that myth is that Zeus decided to change Kore's name to
 Persephone (basically "the one who brings chaos") only because she wanted
 to stay in the underworld and SHE WOULDN'T FUCKING LISTEN then Zeus,
 all-mighty king of the gods, kinda gives up and goes fine, but you're going to
 visit your mom "also, I changed your name "get rekt

MARY J. BLIGE DA BRAT 14 WORD UP! BYJAN PETERS WHO'S HOT rhaps more than any other female rapper, Lil Kim has come to define today's hip-hop generation brash, irreverent, outspoken, vulnerable, and real. Hot since Hard Core, L Kim has upped the ante on her populatity by making strategik career moves which have kept her in demand and in the publics eye through a succession of image-making makeovers and bicoastal appearances in person and on wax. Kim's cur rent album, The Notorious K,LM is the first flight of the Queen Bee without the Notorious 8.1.G, a reality which forced her to look within herself for direction. Kim's expansion into other media, film, print ads, and who knows what else is to corme, has brought her clos er to the kind of notoriety that she says she's after, How hot is Lil Kim? Ask your mom if she knows who Lil Kim is. Chances are she will. Lir Kim's friend Mary J. Blige is also another artist whos come into her own. With her most recent album, Mary, already certitied platinum, Mary has retained her superstar status building yeary on her every woman appeal. Currently expanding her horizons as an actress and a model spokesperson for MAC cosmetics Viva Glam lI lipsticks, along with her girl, Lil Kim, Mary's longevity and popularity seems assured...New on the xene, female emcee Rah Digga classifies herself as a "serious" rapper. Not that she cant get all dolied up, but she doesn't want what's on the surface to interfere with the substance underneath. Nevertheless, with the releave of her debut album, Dirty Harriet, Rah Digga immediately established a fan base composed of all kinds of rap fans. Why? Because shes got skilk. A rapper who believes in earning her accolades, Rah Digga s the kind of everyday female to whom fans can relate. If anything, it's her dream that one day female rappers can be taken seriously without relying on the externals to help get them over. Fans cer- tainly have responded to her approach...Fashioned in the same outspoken mold as Lil Kim, Eve came onto the scene and immediately regis tered as a real-life, around-the-way sista whose rap skills secured for her a place in the hip-hop hierarchy. Touring with labelmates from the Ruff Ryders crew, Eve never fails to amaze fans who get impressed with her street cool, flavorful flow, For her, the heat stays on and on...Branded as a hip hop tomboy, Da Brat made her appearance as a rough neck femme whose image lately softened under hot lights for sexy shots as a calen dar queen. for women whe indulge the feminine and masculine sides of their gender, Da Brat was a long awaited role model whose duality they appreci- ated in addition to her rhyme skills. Currently rolling strong from the success of her third album Unrestricted, Da Brat has the distinction of being the first solo female rapper to go platinum. Since then, shes built on her fan base and remained in the spotlight while others faded away...Even when Missy Elliott inot on the charts, better believe she's always got something going on.

 through a succession of image-making makeovers and
 bicoastal appearances in person and on wax. Kim's cur

 most recent album, Mary, already certitied platinum,
 Mary has retained her superstar status building yeary
 on her every woman appeal. Currently expanding her

 MAC cosmetics Viva Glam lI lipsticks, along with her
 girl, Lil Kim, Mary's longevity and popularity seems
