Happy Valentine’s Day. Love Every Day.

Chillin’ at home in my Sanctuary.. nice to get out pf my leisure wear just for you!

I write a lot about love..and always try to live a life of love and what I exude not just as an artist but human being. Love to all, love into the world, love yourself. Thank you to those who show me love by supporting what I do. Love is – an action word.

Some of my favorite songs about love through the decades in my catalog — though all of my songs have meaning in my journey, some more than others.

‘..accept no substitutes – always go for the real thing!..’
An overlooked gem..about love and commitment.
This song and video represent the loves of my life my daughter Lauren and son Arie ..a song about creating an environment of love at home, a sanctuary, a safe place ..another gem..unconditional love.
“..’beauty will not keep us together – it’s love that will weather the storm..can we go deeper than skin..” Indeed.

Jody Watley Classic Image of The Day. Vintage Glam and Two Key Elements of Style.

Jody Watley pictured in vintage dress and clutch attending legendary photographer Herb Ritts birthday party in 1991. “You don’t have to spend a grip and wear designer clothes to look like a million bucks. Style is finding what works for you. Today vintage and repurposed clothing are more commonplace so seek out these options – you’d be surprised as well what you’d find at Goodwill – many items barely or gently worn. In addition you can often find cool deals at consignment stores as well, though more on the pricey end. Pair vintage with contemporary but most of all know what works for you not what trends are. With the prevalence of designers fashion and Instagram photo opps with pricey outfits – don’t get caught up in that game.

.. Always defining myself for myself – my own way. Some get it, some don’t .. I’m here to live my life on my terms not to people’s opinions of me.” – Jody Watley

My first label Phonogram was not on board with my vision so we quickly parted ways..you’d think because I was in London it wouldn’t have been an issue but it was. Black artists are always often pressured to conform to more ‘relatable’ imagery. On my subsequent American debut and since..I’ve always navigated incorporating high fashion with edgy street style to varying results..but always what I wish to convey – hits and misses.. it’s all uniquely me.

Welcome 2021. Wattage Thoughts.

Wishing everyone the best of 2021. Set your intentions and vibrations..and like I always say keep it movin’ – always in gratitude, open to growth, readjustments, self improvement and new opportunities even if you have to create them yourself. Like Mark Twain said – “The secret to getting ahead is getting started” so even when you fall short – begin again, start over – just begin and take it easy on yourself too. Breathe – and don’t carry the weight of other people’s opinions and expectations with you. One of the many lessons 2020 taught is that life is unpredictable and short so don’t waste time living someone else’s life to appease them.Also recognize that you can go out of your way to help some people and you will not be appreciated. Stop going out of your way for people when it’s not reciprocated. Not everyone is on the same page or for the long haul in the many chapters of life – wish them well and move on. 2020 gave me the kick in the pants I was already arriving to, but ultimately opened the door to get back to focusing on the business of and focus on myself – Jody Watley.

Live in your personal joy and happiness and give no fuks about who doesn’t get it and who is not on board. Remember that no matter how good your heart is – not everyone has the same heart as you.

Always find your best light.

Continue to stay healthy and safe and considerate of others.
