Happy Birthday Aaliyah

If you know anything about me, you likely know that I’ve had an obsession with Aaliyah from Day 1. She was known as “The one who started it all”, “Baby Girl”, “Liyah” and I was officially obsessed. I can’t tell you how I would have jumped to be on an episode of MTV’s Fanatic for her!  I was at a concert that Tank was at and they had Aaliyah posters hanging up (Blackground) and I had to of course tear one down.  CRAZY FAN! I could always listen to her because she has a song for every emotion and feeling. If I’m in love/like, I go to Aaliyah (Street Thing,...

Being Mary Jane – Season 4 Episode 5 Review

This episode is really Niecey heavy and it’s about time because I knew some ish was going to pop off. Niecey is up in the club in VIP wasting more money. Y’all could have done this for 1/10 the price at home.  Her homegirls are trying to warm her about Dante but she’s blind and doesn’t see that that man is there for the money.  They give in to her because hey she’s paying for VIP.  I would have busted my homegirls up the head and they can attest to this.  So everyone at the club is trying to leach off her and she turns some chicks down and they go...

Being Mary Jane – Season 4 Episode 4 Review

So the episode starts with the morning crew watching a video of a kid that is wearing a kilt whose dad assaults him and drags him away for wearing a kilt.  Justin doesn’t want to cover the story but MJ is all into it but she never gets her way.  Rhonda always gets to do whatever little story she thinks of even if it low-key ain’t ish. Turns out Garret likes MJ’s but he puts it on the table still because MJ didn’t come at it with a good angle which Justin points out when they talk afterward.  Justin is now producing all MJ’s stories.  MJ is clearly still caught...

Being Mary Jane – Season 4 Episode 3 Review

So MJ starts looking at some places and her brother is showing her a place. He’s in NY now killing it and house sitting for his newfound mentor in a 15 million dollar home.  Of course, MJ sees it and feels like it is her destiny.  She’s just like Niecey. She wants everything she can’t have.  Side note: PJ seems to have matured.  It seems like the men (although not initially) have most of the sense in the Paul family. So MJ is already getting pump faked at work.  Life comes at you fast huh.  MJ and Kara are throwing out ideas and they are smacking them down.  Another girl...

Being Mary Jane – Season 4 Episode 2 Review

So…I’m back with reviews.  I missed episode one’s review and I’m just going to give you a brief summation before we get into episode 2. Episode 1: MJ and Kara are in NYC and we’ve just BREEZED over the situation with Niecey but there’s a settlement coming and MJ was fired for advocating for Niecey.  MJ has a new job and a new rival/mentor.  She is trying to find her husband …still…and hired a matchmaker that QUIT her.  She did come across a random British man though who she’ll do MJ fuckshit with of course. Episode 2: The episode opens with MJ in her feelings and getting it in with...

Insecure as F**k – Insecure Episode 1

So, the episode starts off with Issa at her job trying her best to present to some kids.  They hit her with the typical we don’t care about school reactions.  They come at her with “Why you talk like a white girl” …this that moment when you realize you shouldn’t cuss kids out… #JesusWorkingOnMe.  Then another girl asks “What’s wrong with your hair…my cousin can put some tracks in it”.  They even come at her asking her if she’s single and saying men don’t want to deal with black women!   Like why in the first 2 minute did these chirren read my educated, single ass hell,  natural hair having black life out...

Fall is a Gateway Drug

I see all of y’all out here being disrespectful.  A friend told me yesterday “I really enjoyed wearing tights and boots today ” I almost hung up on her because her friendship was not what God wanted for my life on that moment.  But Beyonce taught me benevolence so I gave her a chance to explain. She said well she’s ok with a certain range of temperatures. So i said cool BUT FALL IS A GATEWAY DRUG…to WINTER!  It’s so shady it has two names…a street name, Fall, and a legal name, Autumn This is how they lure you in. They make you feel like it’s so cute to wear...

Black Women Win Rio Olympics 2016 #BlackGirlMagic

Now that Olympics 2016 in Rio are over…we can really sit back and revel at all the Black Girl Magic that occurred.  We took so many medals that if Black Women had out own delegation I’m sure we’d be #1.  I didn’t do any calculations to prove this but DON’T QUESTION MY EXCITEMENT!  We’d be up there at the top for sure!! There was just something about watching all of that history.  Black women were winning medals for their respective countries that had never been won by ANYONE, that had never been won by black women, that had never been won two times in a row, in events that had...
