Perhaps this is one time when my natural curiosity will turn out for my benefit.
I saw #dateafollower scroll across my Twitter time line and I knew I had to sign up. I don’t expect to find love in an imaginary place. However, my real -life experience tells me this can’t be any worse.
I’ve met men in the grocery store, club, library, parking lot, in my dreams and yet here I am – single. I spend my time procrastinating on Twitter. Twitter allows me to talk to strangers and to myself every day and it’s socially acceptable. I’m with my followers through weddings, funerals, random passive aggressive fights at work and nights of insomnia. I’ve engaged in good ole fashioned shit talking and intellectual debates. Twitter is comparable to being in the dining hall in college and I love it. But is there another use I haven’t tapped into?
In the wake of Whitney Houston‘s passing, actress Janet Hubert, best known for her role as Aunt Viv on 90′s sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, pens an open letter to talk show host Wendy Williams after witnessing a tearful Williams speak of the late Houston during a segment on her show.
Williams looked visibly distraught while speaking of her and Whitney’s feud during a radio show hosting days and wishing she [Houston] had overcome her personal struggles and wouldn’t have come to an early demise.
After reflecting on what she saw Janet writes,
This past weekend was a very difficult time for so many of us.
I watched the funeral service with the rest of the world, and cried time and time again with each story that was told. I felt like I knew more about this amazing woman than ever before. We all watched her as a little girl, center stage, singing like a bird, she was _______READMORE
Rihanna was spotted looking fabulous on the The Brit Awards red carpet, which took place at the O2 Arena in London, last night. She wore a beautiful beaded Givenchy Couture gown from their Spring 2012 collection.
The singer also won an award for ‘Best International Female Artist’ for the 2nd time in two years.
During her acceptance speech, she thanked all the radio DJ’s, music channels, her fans; dedicating the award to them and added, “At times when I feel misunderstood my fans remind me to just be myself and I’ll never forget you for that.”
It’s been nearly 15 years since we received an album from 90′s group SWV but the wait may have been well worth it. Taj, LeLee, and CoCo are back with the video for the official first single “Co-Sign”. Their long awaited album, ‘I Missed Us’, is set for an April 10th release. Check out the video below.
Before her sudden passing earlier this month, Whitney Houston was spotted at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel enjoying Madonna’s Super Bowl Halftime show featuring M.I.A and Nicki Minaj, and looked like she was really enjoying herself.
Rihanna and Chris Brown sure know how to give their fans just what they want! Just moments ago, they both released the remixes for current singles “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music”. The former couple took to twitter to release the others record simultaneously. Believe me when I say, the tracks are hot! Check it out.
Rihanna: “Birthday Cake” Remix Feat. Chris Brown
Chris: “Girl, I wanna f**k you right now. Been a long time, I been missing that body. Let me, let me, let me turn the lights down. When I go down it’s a private party…..Doggy want the kitty. Gimme a heart attack and throw it back so I can get it” Rihanna: “Remember how you did it, Remember you fit it. If you still wanna kiss it, come, come and get it….”
Chris Brown: “Turn Up The Music” Remix Feat. Rihanna
Something about taking a break from romance makes you focus on self. There’s no longer strong arms to hide behind. Instead I stand in the mirror and face reality…I need to get my life together. So now that I’ve declared I’m “doing me” and out “doing my own thing” I had better get busy.
If you weren’t already active, it’s like the light bulb comes on. Do I have a pouch where my stomach use to be? Love makes you fat with all that good eating and “chilling.” Hell naw.
I bought the Janette Jenkins Hollywood Trainer “Blast the Belly Fat” DVD. It’s an incredible exercise regimen that involves an exercise ball and weights.
I, like most people, first watched the DVD first from the couch. Eating my Kettle chips I figured this was quite easy. The next day I’m up, ready to go, music blasting. I sat down and BAM right into the wall. I stared sadly at the exercise ball like it pushed me off on purpose. I tried again and BAM right into the table. I just laid on the floor after that and contemplated the important things in life…like why aren’t burgers considered vegetables.
But I’m single now and there was no excuse for me to become fluffy. The ball and I continue to have misunderstandings but it’s getting better.
When you see a woman in a salon yelling “Cut it off!” to her stylist she’s going through a break up. One day, I decided every time I looked in the mirror I saw the face of the person who loved him. Every picture I took after the break up just looked like he was missing.
Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve already heard the many speculation of Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s reunion. It seems Chrianna may be back on! But should we care?
Well, for starters he violently attacked her three years ago, only for her to get back with him immediately but was then forced to end the relationship because of the media backlash and expectation that she must be a role model for the many young female fans she inspires. We were all left stunned by the assault, the release of a photo showing a battered Rihanna, the police report detailing the graphic assault and were subjected to the many attempts at salvaging both Brown and Rihanna’s image and careers.
Of course, Rihanna, being the victim, received sympathy and went on to have even greater success while Chris is still trying to pick up the pieces. Even with his return to the Grammys this year, where he won his first Grammy award, and was allowed to perform twice, many people still can’t get over his past transgressions. Now, with rumors Brown and Rihanna have not only rekindled a romance and that he attended her private birthday party just last week but now he’s set to be featured on her “Birthday Cake” remix. The same remix that’s been appropriately scheduled to make it’s debut on Rihanna’s actual birthday, February 20th. Oh the controversy will be surmounting.
But again, why should we care?
Whether she wants to or not, Rihanna has become the face of domestic violence and toxic love. She escaped with her life but has since dropped the restraining order. Since that time, rumors of a Rihanna and Chris reunion began to circulate and have finally been confirmed_______READMORE
Happy 24th birthday Rihanna!!! That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. And it seems it won’t for a little while longer.
Rihanna may be in London enjoying fashion week and set to perform at the BRIT Awards tonight but at the strike of midnight, Rihanna fans, worldwide, began celebrating her birthday.
All eyes have been on the pop star lately, with the highly anticipated “Birthday Cake” remix set for a release today with a feature from none other than notorious ex Chris Brown, and eyes zoomed in even closure when Brown even tweeted a birthday message of his own.
He tweeted to over 8 million followers, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!”. In case you’re wondering, Robyn is actually Rihanna’s first name. She was born Robyn Rihanna Fenty. And what was Rihanna’s response?
