Monica Defines 'Still Standing'
Monica's reality TV series on BET, Still Standing, has been buzzing since it recently aired. The title of the show is also the name of Monica's 6th album release and single, which is slated for a early 2010 release.
In a recent cover story with Rolling Out Magazine, here's how the Atlanta-born Monica interpreted 'Still Standing':
"Still standing [are] words that, once you put them together, you think strength. Whatever the rest of the interpretation is, you think ‘still standing' as in not giving up, not turning back, not letting go ... that's how I feel in my everyday life. ‘Still Standing' is the title of the show, but it's also the name of the album, because it's the best representation of where I am right now. That may change in a couple of years. I hope that I'm still standing," she says as an involuntary chuckle escapes her. "But how I look at things may change. It just best describes me right now." - Monica, via Rolling Out Magazine (November 2009)
