No One on the Corner Have Swagger Like Us

The modern English language never ceases to amaze me....all of a sudden a new word infilitrates our vocabulary and pop culture. The newest addition that drives me crazy: swagger, swagga, swag, etc. According to the Urban Dictionary, swagger means "to to move with confidence, sophistication and to be cool" or "to conduct your self in a way that would automaticaly earn respect."

I know I am not hip enough anymore to say something along the lines of "Don't be hating on my swagga!" But then again maybe I am lacking in the swag department....I just don't have enough swagger to pull off saying the word swagger....

Every other pop or hip hop song on the radio today has some variation of the word swag in the lyrics. The American Idol judges are referring to swagger in their critiques now. Apparently Danny Gokey has swagger now?

Little did I know how much this word has taken hold....I guess CNN is not immune either:

So aparrently even our president "has his swag on." I am in disbelief right now.
