Meet Mona aka Sad Girl, La Chola Japonesa!!! I ran into her music some time ago while doing some research on the fast growing Lowrider scene in Japan. Anyway, I'm not sure how I completely feel about her yet, but its how they say..."imitation is the highest form of flattery" and this is what I say, "Always imitated never duplicated!!!" c/s

Okay, now at first I didn't know how I felt about Mona doing a cover of Selena's "Dreaming of You" song... The first thoughts that came to my mind where: Whaaaat?!!! WTF!!! Ohhh Hellz No!!! Nobody can replace Selena... She belong to us!!! hahaha that kinda shit you know. But then I calmed down and though about this. She's not the only one that has done a cover of a Selena song, so why am I tripping? Is it because she's Japanese and not Latina? Maybe a little, but thats not really it. Is it because I'm extremely sensitive and overprotective when it come to Selena? Yeah Duh... but why be a hater if I don't have to be, right? Selena has fans all over the planet, and she's just trying to honor her memory with this homage, and I ain't mad at her for that. Mona seems to be really down with the Brown and if she wants to show her love for our beloved Selena then who am I to judge... knock yourself out Sad Girl!!!

Shout out to all the Hella Breezys' fans out there in Japan... Stay Brown Homies!!!

Personally, I find this so bizarre. Funny, too. But nothing is new, right? People have appropriating other cultures forever. They've got it down to a T! I was digging the Japanese Zapp, too. Dayum! LOL

I think this is fierce!!!! Chola comes in all colors and we should embrace that! Plus, here in LA there are a bunch of asian cholas. Love homegirls in general. Thanks for sharing!
