So i was down in the coffee shop the other day and ended up leaving with a little bit of tea. I found out the Brandy’s mother Sonja Noorwood is now managing Tiny. Sonia was the driving force behind Brandy and Ray J in the 90′s and early 2000′s. It’s just been in recent years that Sonia has removed her self from their management equation. Perhaps that is the reason neither of them can get it right. Chile no tea no shade, but Sonia needs to be working with hew own damn children to get them back on top, especially that wack a$$ Ray-J.
Supposedly Sonja is supposed to be helping Tiny organize and run her label. Tiny has already found success with the formation and management of The OMG girls and I guess she figures it is time to take things to the next level. With Tiny being a former teen sensation and Brandy’s mama building a former teen sensation, this partnership kind of makes sense. I’ll be sure to keep you guys posted on what else I find out as i learn more…
So y’all know The Doll has to pay homage to a sickening tune when I find one. I was riding down the highway listening to Sirius Satellite station The Heat” and this song call “Dontcha” kept coming on throughout the day. At first I didn’t pay the song any attention because it was giving me such an old school funk vibe that I just knew the song had to be old. Each time the song played, I could not help but realize that the song was giving me Amel Larrieux / Groove Theory T’s. The spirit led me to Shazam the song. Come to find out, the song is fairly new and from a group I hadn’t heard of.
Get you a piece of Dontcha. I know you’ll like it!
Listen, for some odd reason, some friends and I were riding in the car this weekend and somehow we ended up watching a clip from the season finale of R&B Divas Atlanta on my Iphone. Chile I do not remember the argument between Syleena Johnson and Nicci Gilbert being as funny as it was, but that thang was funty hunty! OKAY. Chile, Syleena told Madea, and I quote
“I know you ain’t talking spongebob with that wack a$$ outfit you got on. Bish you super wack. Yes I’m a bish. A bish thats better than you, a bish that’s cuter than you, and that’s more pulled up than you bish, and you hate it”
If that wasn’t enough to have you dead to the bed, Syleena went on to tell that Uhaul
“You’re a hot mess, and your lips look like a baboons a$$”
“You’re gonna look a mess with those black gums and all, and those knock a$$ knees”
Chile you would have thought this clip was a Vine video because we watched it over and over again. Go a head and get 911 on your speed dial because you are going to fall dead to da bead after reliving this! Continue reading
Chile somebody has it out for Miss Britney Spears. If y’all thought Kim Zolciak sounded like a baboon in heat, y’all have not heard Brittney Spears. Chile certain things are better left unheard. Britney Spears actual singing voice has been making its way around the internet as of late in the form of what’s allegedly an isolated vocal track from a 2001 Las Vegas concert.
If you are at work, i suggest you put some headphones on RIGHT NOW, or turn the volume down. Catch these T’s Continue reading
I am very selective when taking on issues of race on my blog. I think that it is a very tired argument to be having in 2013, however I do recognize that issues do exist. Being a former corporate slave, I can relate a million times over to feelings of of trying to fit in and toiling over conformity. As a society, we have come to recognize the acceptable corporate look as this one dimensional, standardized, “in the box”, physical manifestation of some ideal. No tea no shade, we’ve adopted this standardized image of a white collared white man as the rule for what men and women alike should look like in a corporate setting. Often timess, for reasons far beyond our control, minorities have difficult time conforming to to these standards. Physically, many of us just aren’t able to. The few modifications we can make to our physical appearance to to conform to these standards lend themselves to high anxiety and a heightened self consciousness in the workplace.
In the words of India Arie, “I am not my hair.” This project forced viewers to reexamine all they’ve come to know. The most compelling aspect of the photos is not necessarily the physical discrepancy between a white woman and her black hair, but all of the complex histories, assumptions, silences and transformations that make such a discrepancy so apparent to the viewer. Catch these T’s when Becky becomes Tanisha. Continue reading
Listen, y’all can say whatever the hell y’all want to say about Tamar & Vince, but when it comes to this music, branding, and Tamar’s career, they know what the hell they are doing. With hot sugar being an up tempo track and Tamar’s infatuation with Beyonce and Lady Gaga, I was so expecting the Hot Sugar video to be very reminiscent of Beyonce circa 2009. Boy was I wrong. Yes Gawd Hunty! Tamar Braxton thought way outside the box and payed a sickening piece of artistic homage to the gays. Go in and let have bish!!! Yellow fish turnt it bish!!! check out this video and get you a piece of Hot Sugar! Continue reading
