If you like a feel good song with an old driving down route 66 with the wind blowing in your hair kind of flair, then this is the song for you. Mariah Carey and Miguel teased us with leaked pictures and video clips of them working in the studio together. The finished product of their studio rendezvous is here. The song is called Beautiful. The song serves as the lead single off the 42-year-old Mariah’s upcoming new album, scheduled for release this summer. Check it out.
Antoine Dodson is an idiot with brains made of camel shit. For the life of me I hope all of this is a hoax or a crack induced rant because if this fool starts procreating, we are in serious trouble. I really feel some kind of way that The Huffington Post decided to interview Antoine Dodson after he renounced being homosexual. Antoine cites that with much of his new found free time (as if he didn’t have any free time when they were not working living in the projects) he began reading The Good Book and has decided to stop being homosexual. In essence, he prayed the gay away.
Whats so unfortunate about this is that proponents of “gay is a choice, gay is sin” are going to use his celebrity and his statements to try and drive home their point. Lord, this chile is about to become the face of a campaign. Help us now. What’s even more sad is how the news reporter pretty much embarrasses Antoine. She asks him questions that are honestly too complex for his understanding and he goes off, giving answers to questions he thinks he’s hearing. The way Antoine gets charged up and hype for no reason makes you ask is he one of Frankie’s (Keyshia Cole Mammy) kids? Check out this video Continue reading
Last week I had the pleasure of attending one of two R&B Divas premiere parties that was thrown here in Atlanta. Expecting to pick up tid bits of information on the Atlanta girls, I was shocked when all the major tea spilled pertained to the L.A. cast. Well quiet as its kept, they say Kelly Price and her diva to the tenth power attitude has made it nearly impossible to work with her. Some of her alleged antics that were reported to me will shock you. Kelly’s name wasn’t the only one thrown in the pot. The other difficult diva I was not surprised about and you probably wont be either. Catch these T’s Continue reading
I just recently had to end a relationship with someone because they complained so much and about everything. Their constant complaining became such an imposition on my life. I would wake up happy, but soon turn frustrated from the burden of trying to get them to see the positive or provide them with solutions to various comlaints. Just when I thought I was making so headway, they’d return the next day complaining about the same thing and we’d be back at square one. This song and dance drained so much life out of me that my mind, body, and soul went into survival mode and I completely stop answering the phone or text messages. I straight up started ignoring the person in hopes that they would just leave me alone and disappear out of my life. I still get an occasional text message or an email. At times, I want to respond. Then I think about how heavy it was and how daunting of a task it was to be in close proximity of this person, so I refrain.
Last night I stumbled across a letter a woman wrote in Essence Magazine that totally speaks to this situation. The spirit of complaining is a strong viscous one. Rather you are the complainer, or the person who always has to hear the sh!t, you can gain something from reading this. I know the title addresses women, but the message is universal.
Emotional Nudity: An Open Letter To Women Who Constantly Complain But Never Change
Dear Sista Complains A Lot: There is something that I’ve been wanting to say to you and I finally think it’s time. I’m hoping that you can hear me over your constant grumbles of discontent. I’m praying that you can put aside your finger pointing, wailing and yammering for just a few minutes and process what I have to say.
The honest truth is that no matter how much time you spend “venting,” whining or complaining, the only person that can change your situation is you. I’m sorry, but it’s my turn to complain. You need to know that talk without action is just a bunch of noise. Continue reading
A$AP Rocky may not like dark skinned girls who wear red lipstick, but it is good to know that the gays are alright with him. I’m not sure who’s bright idea it is to keep asking a dude by the name of A$AP Rocky questions on social issues, but his responses are definitely keeping him in the media. Check out what he had to say about closeted gay males. His response may surprise you. Continue reading
In honor of the Kentucky Derby @Anti_Intellect of the Anti Intellect Blog as something to say:
Does the name Isaac Murphy mean anything to you? Odds are that you haven’t heard much about this forerunner of the popular Black professional athletes of today. According to Toni Morrison’s foreword in the incredible chronicler of Black History, The Black Book, “Isaac Murphy, a Black jockey, was the first to win three Derbys.” In fact, according to Morrison, “Fourteen of the first twenty-seven Kentucky Derby races were won by Black jockeys.” Continue reading
