Have you ever heard of a label hoe. A label hoe is a derogatory term which describes those whom enjoy the finer things in life such as clothing, cars, jewelry and much more. I was looking on Facebook the other day and actually saw a profile with the name of Label Hoes (wow). Their description of label hoe is this: Not so much as hoes, just fashion fornicators! This is for everyone who loves to clean up and step out in their more expensive attire! It's for the fellas who love their Roca Wear , Sean John, Enyce, Timbaland, Nautica, Armani, Burberry, Phat Farm, Hollister, Ecko, G-Unit, the list goes on.... for the ladies who love to wear their Louis Vuitton, Coach, Chanel, Gucci, Gap, Prada, Versace, Burberry, Fendi, DKNY, Armani, Banana Republic, Dolce and Gabbana, Baby Phat, Ecko Red, Steve Madden,...
I prefer to call them Born Hollywood . Although, they are not celebrity, Born Hollywooders develop this swagger that consist of self confidence, go getter and a drive to rise above it all. "I like that"!!They were born with the Hollywood state of mind. As far as they are concerned, they are just as important as any celebrity out there, if not more. They don't need celebrity events to stand out on the red carpet because they walk the red carpet on a daily basis. They will look you in the eye and not back down. They don't need anyone to validate who they are and have no apologies about it. Their mind set is... no one is going to bring me down . The pedestal that which they stand is self made. The one thing most people do not understand about a label hoe is, they did not come from money; they are average individuals with average jobs whom are striving too push their worlds to the limit.They are going to live the lives of celebrity regardless if they never accomplish anything that make their names known internationally. To afford the Designer Labels they love so dearly, they will work very long hours on their jobs and also have their outside hustles to accommodate their lifestyles.They are the stars of their own melodramas (their lives) and nothing else matters. No one is better than them. It's also unlikely that you will find them caught up in the scandal of illegal activities because their reputations are just as important as the Designer Labels they wear.
So for those of us whom have it twisted; there is a major difference between an actual Label Hoe vs. A Fashion Enthusiast (Born Hollywood). Insisting that the two co-exist is insensitive and down right ignorant.
Now that we have defined the Label Hoe and the Fashion Enthusiast (Born Hollywood) lets move on to the Wannabes.
The term derives from the words "want to be", simply put... is a person(s) who imitates or emulates another.
The slang definition as defined by the Urban Dictionary.com is a person who grew up in a certain environment their whole life and then tries to imitate a certain style that's can never happen in their own environment.
Wannabes are an insult to individualism. Individuality is what make our country great. We all incorporate a little of this and little of that to create our own styles; however, cloning has become common place throughout our society and our individualism suffers. Therefore, plastic is not perfect; it's plastic! Stay true to who you are and not keep up with the Joneses because the Joneses are not whom they pretend to be. God Bless.
