I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

The Ides of March (LatinIdus Martii) is the name of 15 March in theRoman calendar, probably referring to the day of the full moon. The termides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months.[1] The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C. Julius Caesar was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate led by Marcus Junius BrutusGaius Cassius Longinus and 60 other conspirators.
On his way to the Theatre of Pompey (where he would be assassinated), Caesar saw a seer who had foretold that harm would come to him not later than the Ides of March. Caesar joked, "Well, the Ides of March have come", to which the seer replied "Ay, they have come, but they are not gone."[2] This meeting is famously dramatized in William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, when Caesar is warned to "beware the Ides of March"


Once I heard the intro to Diddy - Dirty Money's "Coming Home" I wanted to know who was the voice behind these lyrics:

I'm coming home

I'm coming home

tell the World I'm coming home

Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday

I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes

I'm coming home, I'm coming home

tell the World that I'm coming

It turns out it's Skylar Grey and even though she is not featured in the official video for the song - for me: her vocals are the most memorable part.

Skylar Grey is also featured and co-wrote Dr. Dre's new single "I need a Doctor" which they also performed at this year's Grammy Awards with Eminem

I'm really looking forward to more music from Skylar Grey and it turns out that we've been introduced to this voice before only under the name of "Holly Brook". Skylar Grey's given name is Holly Brook Hafermann she changed her stage name from "Holly Brook" to "Skylar Grey" after going through a very trying period in her life, and because of her love of the color grey and grey skies she's become "Skylar Grey"

Here's a bit from Holly Brook for those who remember her
