I'm tired of being ashamed of being an environmentalist. Why is the conversation of global warming, and water rights, so "boring"? Personally, I'd rather be perceived as a so-called "boring" environmentalist and communicate about the importance of water.

I recently had the good fortune of travelling to Australia to perform at the Woodford Folk Festival, near Brisbane. My flight left Vancouver on December 22, 2013 and arrived in Australia December 24, the day before Christmas.

It's always been a big question to me where my comfort lies in the area of revealing my body. Am I am doing the world any good when I show off my frame? Am I building self-confidence or feeding the machine that tells us women should be seen, not heard. And better yet, women should be nearly naked, and perpetually on display in 2012?

The pressure to flaunt my figure as a rapper and performer and modern woman is HUGE. I have been told countless times that I should "show it off" more, and that I am "hiding" my body. I don't love the look of leggings, because I'm not sold on women baring our asses for the viewing pleasure of strangers.
