Essence Magazine X May Beauty X Erykah Badu X Ledisi X Solange Knowles

Erykah Badu, Ledisi and Solange Knowles grace the May Beauty issue of Essence magazine! These three dynamic beauties represent individual beauty, style and self expression.

Iggy Azalea X Nicki Minaj X Jhene Aiko X New Music Videos

Iggy Azalea is back with the newest of four singles off of her new album entitled "The New Classic". I love the Clueless theme of the video and appreciate Iggy's flow as a rapper. She raps about what she knows so this collaboration with Charli XCX is clever, stylish and fun. Watch below!

The next video I put up mostly for visuals. Nicki Minaj is beautiful and the toning down of the pink wigs and crazy costumes has me focusing on more of her as a rapper. It's a plus that what she is rapping of events that I have personally experienced. Especially these "ballers" in the club. Always looking.

If you didn't know Jhene Aiko is the female vision of Drake. She gives you the soothing feel with a mixture of real feelings and creative descriptions. I've been listening to her music for a couple of years and I've played this song all the way out. I like the original concept for the video and of course my love for Childish Gambino is real. I don't care, I don't care what you say! This collaboration is amazing. Sail out and enjoy this video!


Givenchy X Erykah Badu X Spring 2014

Erykah Badu is one of my favorite artist, visually, vocally and physically. She embodies originality and never being afraid to push the limits of society and the music industry. She has teamed up with Givenchy for their Spring 2014 line. 

The shirt above I need to have in my life immediately! Between Erykah's' influence on fashion and her neo-soul music their is no surprise creative Director Riccardo Tisci wanted to embody her in their Africa-meets-Japan inspired collection. 

The French line has pushed the envelop featuring a transgender model, an albino model and chic mother-daughter duos. Tisci believes their needs to be more diversity and embracing of different cultures and ethnicities even on the runway.

Work, Ms. Badu (if ya nasty)!

Bound 2 and 3 Official Video X Necole Bitchie The Breakfast Club

If you haven't seen it by now, here is Kanye West's newest video to Bound 2, a song I love!
I originally saw this video on the Ellen show and was shocked by the vulgarity of it but then again Nicki's boobies were all over the show a couple of months ago...

Then I watched comedians crack on Kanye's video possibly being considered as Kim's second sex tape.
Hmmmm.... you choose.
I kill for the face shots in the video though.

Bound 3: James Franco and  Seth Rogan spoof.

Kanye West sits down with 105.1 a popular radio show, The Breakfast Club and Charlamagne serves Kanye his piece. 

Watch this video as Charlamagne gives it all hes got and Kanye rants about being like Steve Jobs, working for the industry and Bound 2 video being a big joke.

I love Charlamagne's realness .
How do you feel about Kanye's interview?


Necole Bitchie chats with 105.1 morning show, The Breakfast Club.

*Gives her take on blogging, keeping it real and balancing her life today.

One of my favorite bloggers and inspirations Necole Bitchie did an interview with one of my favorite radio shows that I have been listening to since I lived in NYC. (Check out Peter Gunz of LHHNY interview with The Breakfast Club here.) The Breakfast Club includes radio personalities Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy of 105.1 
Necole Bitchie's in dept interview elaborates on her rise to success, starting from the bottom and the life of journalist/bloggers today.


Music Videos X Jay Z X JT X Chris X Nicki X Lorde X Drake

Here are a few of my favorite songs and their official music videos. Enjoy!

I love this video of Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, "Holy Grail". It was clean yet innovative the way they switched it up. Very Nice.

Dedicated to Chris Brown heading to long term rehab for attacking a photo bomber is his new video with Nicki Minaj. I could watch this video on mute and just watch him dance actually.

My favorite new song has the weirdest video but I don't care I still love the song and Lorde's quirky feel.

Haven't gotten tired of Drake's acting in his video "Hold On, We're Going Home" yet! I think it's safe to say we will be seeing some more acting in the near future!


Rihanna X Pour it Up X Music Video

Elaborating on her love for the art of stripping Rihanna serves something in her Explicit "Pour it Up" video. Knowing Rihanna had some rhythm I wasn't startled by her raunchy moves on the throne. It looks like she learned a thing or two from her visits to clubs. I like how she incorporated her Caribbean iced out bra and the blond wig is still growing on me but not a fave. Now I'm waiting for a new album or video to a more recent song.....

In general going to the strip club in Atlanta and a few other major cities has become like heading to a regular club but with good food, barber shops etc while for others it's remained Taboo. 

What do you think, about the video and Atlanta's strip club obsession? *Comment Below


Big Sean X Jhene Aiko X Kendrick Lamar X Naya Rivera

I like this new Big Sean.  On "Beware" Big Sean collaborates with rhythmic and angelic voiced Jhene Aiko again. I've heard some recent news that Big Sean's new album is going to be crazy. After hearing "Control" with Kendrick and Jay Electronica I might give to a chance. It sparked a twitter war over KDots controversial and honest lyrics. Check out the video for "Beware" and take a listen to "Control".

"They live for some moments and I live for a living."

IDC IDC IDC They are just too cute.

Entertaining Group TGT

Three interesting videos below, the TGT music video for "Sex never Felt Better", hilarious performance on talk show "The Couch" and a 105.1 interview with group TGT. 

Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese. These three powerhouse singers sound so good! I heard their song "Sex Never Felt Better" months ago and decided to post the funny performance along with their interview with the breakfast club. Personality, looks and pure talent I hope they to stick around for a while because their type of R&B is missing in the industry. Also in the interview why is Tank so funny?!? With that charisma and smile no wonder he has 4 kids.


Jade Novah X Show Out X Stay Music Video

I had the pleasure of meeting amazing songstress and soulful personality Jade Novah at the BE annual toasting event!

Jade has been a special artist BE Magazine has covered. I first spotted her in her cover for Rihanna's Stay that received over a million in views. I was captivated by her uniqueness, style, full and majestic voice and Broadway style of singing. It's almost as if she can fill a room with her personality alone and then her voice takes over.
Listen to her new song "Show Out" It definitely gets you pumped up, flipping that hair and a little two step! You can't help but appreciate her vocal delivery in her music. It's filled with energy, passion and an honest calling to sing her lungs out!

Also my favorite video and vocals in "Stay" I love the A-line skirt in the kitchen scene. YES mam!

Music Videos X Feds Watching X Dirty Laundry X Im Out X Scream

Ever had that feeling the feds are watching?
My love, multitalented and ageless Pharrell collaborates on 2 Chainz new single "Feds Watchin" which elaborates on staying fresh while the feds are watching. I love the beginning and the message should be thought about... You are ALWAYS being watched, just saying. For right now enjoy the video which by the way, kudos to the style was smooth, the main female was strutting her life out and I love the recognition of darkskin beauties and girls with not the biggest behind you meet in the club. Beauty however is in the eye of the beholder. Watch and Enjoy!

This song took a while to grow on me but I love the truthful story Kelly tells and know that I think about it, I haven't seen her since the past year or so and she has been looking good from the inside out. *2 snaps* People have their own stories sometimes you have to sit back and listen to understand. Also the visuals were phenomenal and literally attaching me to her emotions. I love Kelly Rowland!

I love the visuals in this Nicki and Ciara duo, very Janet Jackson and Micheal Jackson. The song is okay... That Ciara wet scene was eh.

Throwback Thursdays, I had a dance number to this song in a recital back in Queens. oh the memories!!! (My thighs and abs are still burning from studio time 2 DAYS ago. -_-)
I like classics so if you don't know the video to compare it to, here you are!


Miley Cyrus X Style X We Can't Stop

The Fifth Element of Miley Cyrus comes out with this deliciously mind blowing video to a song I grew to adore. Not only am I loving Miley Cyrus evolved style and grace but also her new sound, working with Pharell?? Yes mam. Check out her newest video "We Can't Stop". Rihan... I mean Miley Cyrus has blossomed I can't wait to see her in full bloom!

Miley's evolved style.
