When i was younger, my father bought me the Rythem Nation CD. I played that album so much that there were rings (from turning in the disc player) around the CD and it started skipping.

Poet, Jasmine Mans, Tells Nicki Minaj "Come Harder"

"Barbie stop spitting me toy stories... This microphone is not a dildo so you're going to have to COME a little harder than that."
This young poet is amazing. She wrote on Nicki Minaj and the road she sees Nicki traveling down. Watching it gave me chills because she's on to something.
“Do you ever feel the chord gripping around your neck? Choke, spit, don't let this industry rape the Assata outta you…"

New Video: Nicki Minaj "Right Thru Me"

 So Ms. Minaj is at it again. She released the video for "Right Thru Me" today. I was not a huge fan of "Check It Out", but this video is SO cute!
Nicki Minaj is a fellow LaGuardia alum and her major was drama. In this new video, she shows off her acting ability which, I must say, are up to par.
In a behind the scenes interview with MTV.com, Nicki stated that the video was very personal to her.
“The concept of the video is….. boy & girl, relationship, drama. You know all of that, and the intimate stuff, as well as the fighting, as well as the self reflecting type stuff. It’s basically just a love story, told from the perspective of a very hard girl who doesn’t want to give in but she has to. But the song to me is very, very personal.”

Kanye West's Short Film: Runaway

"You're girlfriends really beautiful."
"Thank you" "did you know she's a bird?"
"No... I never noticed that". 

Kanye West is a genius. I'm convinced. Yesterday, Mr. West took over three television stations to debut his short film, Runaway, to the world. The film, co-directed by Hype Williams, is centered on a relationship between Kanye and a phoenix.
The internet was buzzing about it before, with Kanye holding 4 trending topics on Twitter, and after. I myself didn't watch it on T.V because I hate T.V... But I watched it this morning online.
Before I watched it, I read many comments and the general consensus was that although you don't get the film at first, people understood that he was trying to do something powerful

What I Want: Rolls-Royce Ghost "DIVA" edition

Now, I am a girly girl. I am not a woman who fakes intrest in anything the boys like. I don't watch basketball, I can't stand hockey, I don't watch football, i watch soccer once every 4 years (the world cup), and i could care less about cars.
I like jewlery, shoes, bags, and almost anything pink or purple tickles my fancy....
But this car right here!!! Child please, I think i'm in love!
Fenice Milano has created a new line of Rolls-Royce Ghost cars, and what better name to give it than "Diva"! *Insert Beyonce's I'm a Diva here*
The hood, grille, side sills, wing mirrors and insides are trimmed with 24-karat gold. While i could probably do with out the gold trim in the front, the inside of this Rolls got me.

Just makes a girl want to SQUEAL! *SIGH*
I now have the urge to watch Beyonce Perform. Good day all.


New Video: Willow Smith "Whip My Hair"

"Imma get more shine in a little bit... applause i'm hearing it. Whip it Real hard, whip it, whip it real hard!"

Dynasty Presents: Dominique Devereux

"Who am I? You'll find out very soon... very soon.... Chow... For Now"
This is a cllip from the show "Dynasty". While i have never watched the show nor heard of it, i saw the clip on Facebook and loved it.
I'm a fan of Ms. Diahann Carroll. She is old school beauty at it's best. That coat... that hair... those shoes. Amazing! 
Flyness at it's best. I know i was born in the wrong era... I'm convinced!

Janelle Monae Wants To Know: Do You Know What You're Fighting For?

"So you think I'm alone? But being alone's the only way to be. When you step outside, you spend life fighting for your sanity. This is a cold war, you better know what you're fighting for"

Janelle Monae is an amazing performer. She gives you her soul every time she gets on that stage and leave naked. I love her. This song is extremely thought provoking... What do you think about when listening to it?

Throwback Thursday: Wycleff ft Claudette Ortiz "2 Wrongs"

"I'm so used to the rain that i can't see the sunshine no more. I'm so used to the pain that the car sickness feels like the cure..."
She had such an amazing voice. I wish she would've made a bigger name for herself...


Nostalgia At 3 A.M

Sherine: Boston, MA 4 years old

"Back in the days when I was young I'm not a kid anymore/ But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again"- Ahmad
Have you ever gone back and looked at photo albums of "back in the day"?
I've been in a strange place mentally and emotionally and I guess it made me seek comfort.
 I miss being a child. The carefreeness of it all. The ability to experience emotion and actually express them... rather than repress them.
Haven't smiled like in a while... makes me happy just looking at it.

WTF Wednesday: MTA Raises Fares... AGAIN

I woke up to an email this morning titled "Bunch of Rich Scumbags" from my friend Joanna. Needless to say, I was already intrigued.

Diddy Likes To Motivate, "LET'S GO!"

"I go into it knowing i'm one of the Baddest motherfu*ckas to ever live... I feel like I AM one of the baddest motherfu*kas to ever walk the face of the earth... I AM one of the baddest motherfu*kas to ever walk the face of the earth. That's just a fact. That's a pure fact."
Lol he lookd so offended that the interviewer even THOUGHT that he had doubts.

Why was that black and white scene so dramatic? Who was he putting the "sexy voice" on for?
 Smh... Oh Sean, you crack me up but this video was a great compilation of all the positive messages you give out.
"Lock IN on your Dream! LOCK IN!"
One of the things he said in the video, that is so true, was "people worrying about other people and what they're doing". It's fine to be connected and up to date with news but never take that and make it your BUSINESS (unless you are a SUCCESSFUL gossip blogger). He said "You're wasting the time that you could be putting towards yourself" and I almost got up and church praise danced.
As comedic as Sean is, he makes a lot of sense. He is extremly smart and, at the end of the day, I respect him for the power moves he has made as a business man.
You better go ahead Diddy, or like my mom called him when she met him, "Puff Diddy Daddy". Lol i love that my mom is so unphased...

"If you're chasing your dreams, you're not running fast enough."

I Fly In On A Chopper Just To Buy Balenciaga!

Balenciaga Spring 2011 is giving me EVERYTHING I need and MORE!
I am a sucker for prints. My two favorite are leopard and… you guessed it, HOUNDSTOOTH! What a coincidence, Balenciaga used, not only houndstooth, LEATHER HOUNDSTOOTH! Makes me wanna slap my mama… but she will slap me back... so never mind…

My question is, who wants to loan a sister a few months rent? I’m sure that’s what one of these dressed cost.

Check out the collection below, click to enlarge.


I would SNATCH that ring off Chanel!

It Ain't Nothing But A She Thang!

It’s time for another “personal thought” moment.

"I can bring home the bacon, fry it in a pan, never let you forget that you’re a man cause I’m a W.O.M.A.N. Gotta break my neck just to get respect. Go to work and get paid LESS than a man. When I’m aggressive, then I'm a BITCH! I'm a genuine feminine female thang, can ya hang? Ain't nothin' but a she thang!"
While watching this video I couldn’t help but smile. Music at this time was so empowering for females! These ladies were not ashamed to be strong, and take care of home, while still being WOMEN.

Women are often looked at as “the minority” but the world is made up of way more women than men. Why is it we continue to allow our perception of our self worth to be determined by a man?

“Have you ever been in labor, I don’t think so, NOPE!”
Now saying this is not me saying “emasculate our men. Let a man be a man because at the end of the day ladies, they can’t be us and we can’t be them. Understanding and honing your inner female power means:
  • Knowing who you are
  • Knowing your self-worth
  • Loving yourself enough to not take anything less than your self-worth.

I hate the fact that the word “Bitch” is used to describe any woman that is assertive, knows what she wants, and doesn’t let anyone stand in the way of attaining that goal. What’s wrong with being empowered? What’s wrong with speaking your opinion? What’s wrong with not taking “bullshit” (for lack of a better term)?

This affects women across the board but with black women it has been a prevalent and constant issue. When a woman of color has an opinion, she is automatically labeled as “The Bitch”. We take that in stride and do one of two things. Some of us succumb and become doormats and some of us go the extra mile to prove a point. Neither of these are solutions to a greater problem. I don’t even know if there is a solution, but I do know that we must learn how to be WOMEN and not GIRLS or BITCHES.


“Don’t be fooled by my S.E.X, it aint that simple, I’m more complex.”

Throwback Thursday: Conceited- Remy Ma

I Remember when this song came out. I was in 11th grade and myspace was cool. Oh the difference 5 years makes.

WTF Wednesday: C.R.E.A.M

Okay so WTF Wednesday is more like "LOL" Wednesday this week (if you have an odd sense of humor like me)

Lol girl, you got GOT!

New Video: Chris Brown "12 Strands (Matrix)"

"For Far to long They've been plotting on me. The story's unfolding, it's a conspiracy... must be a glitch in the Matrix. Bring me to life, show me how to live... I just want to live."

I've been meaning to watch this video but every time I was supposed to I got distracted. Spotted on IvoSilva's blog, i decided to actually watch it this time.
I'm obviously either PMSing or getting way too soft because i damn near cried watching this video too!

In the whole "CB vs. Rihanna vs. The Public's perception" fiasco, I was torn. I felt like Christopher was dealt the short end of the stick in the whole ordeal. Domestic violence is a serious offense but people were quick to pass judgment without knowing the facts behind that night. Hell, some of the people passing judgments were getting their own faces slapped up but… I digress.

The video really shows what it can feel like being under the ever-powerful microscope that is “The Public Eye”. Chris is also extremely athletic! That damn boy wouldn’t stop running!


Nicki Minaj Visits The Dave Letterman Show

"Haters you can KILL YO'SELVES!"

So my chick Nicki Minaj visited NYC’s Ed Sullivan Theater for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman yesterday. She wore graphic high-waisted harem pants, a black top with patent leather shoulder pads, and black ankle boots. I LOVES IT! Her hair and make-up were on point!
I must say, I am VERY happy with her performance. After that atrocious horrible mind-boggling *AHEM* I mean interesting performance on MTV, I was skeptical! She does a lot more singing than rapping in this song and I was scared that it was going to be a detriment to her performances

LOUD Colors Are My Favorite!

Although Ms. Fenty tends to sound like billy goat gruff *giggle* there is no denying the fact that she has become  a fashion icon. I absolutely LOVE this ensemble!
I would soooo wear it, and contrary to most people's opinions, I love the red hair. The fact that she doesn't comb it is another issue :-/
Rihanna was spotted leaving BBC Radio Stations in London on October 2,2010. She was there promoting her new album (in stores this November).

I'd Rather Go Blind

I kid you not; I’m posting this while wiping tears from my eyes.

I've been missing Beyonce's presence in the music game for the last few days so I decided to listen to all the songs I have of her. This afternoon, I’d Rather Go Blind came on and I HAD to see this clip again.

When I went to see Cadillac Records, I will admit, I was not expecting much. I love my Bey Bey but her acting skill prior to this movie was… questionable lol.

My cousin and I, two self proclaimed bad asses, left the theatre drying our eyes. Everyone in the movie was amazing but this scene in Cadillac Records brought us to tears… and I’m not talking about one tear down our cheek. I’m talking snot running, sniffling, holding each other tears!

Oh Beyonce, please hurry back. I can't take much more of the non-sense on my radio.
