When we like why do we like so hard?, He’s just a guy, just another one of them so why are we so drawn? Past experience have taught us to never put all ours eggs into one basket, but for some reason it feels like for him we’ll put them all - why, because he’s got you *smiles*
Say what you want about black people but we sure know how to throw a party!
Men! is it fair to call them all dogs, to call them all players, when and where do females become part of the equation. As the saying goes, people only to us what we allow them too. I’m a true believer in the female intuition and 9 times out of 10 we know when we’re getting played, but for one reason or another we turn a blind eye then turn around and call that man a so called “player”!! There’s another saying and it goes, “men will be men” but when that same man is caught out cheating we welcome him back with the idea “men will be men”!!! So again I ask the question, is it fair to call all men dogs, is it fair to call all men players……
Miss Bey has caused controversy over her over the top “sexy image”. In my opinion she has always been openly sexual in her image, videos and songs but for some reason it seems to only be a problem now. Could it be that she’s a 30 year old married mother? Yes that’s exactly what it is. Some say shes a hypocrite to proclaim feminism and Christianity whilst provocatively using her body to sell records, others say shes not a positive role model to young women and kids. Well Bey says, shes a grown woman and can do whatever she wants!!
Black women have been shaking their asses and dancing provocatively as a form of entertainment for decades and in 2014 it seems nothing much has changed. Josephine Baker one of the original black female performers used her sexuality as tool for her success in an era where black women were rarely seen in the spotlight. Some may argue that she started a self fulfilling prophecy for black female entertainers, where being overtly sexual has become a necessity in their image in order to be successful. Others may argue that she paved the way and simply made a living out of a stereotype of black women which had already existed since the slavery era. Whatever the argument it is clear that she has influenced many performers of our generation, and it is safe to say that in 2014 sexual images are still used as a marketing tool in order to gain sucess.
Janelle Monae killed it at this years BET honours award show. As a tribute to Motown mogul Berry Gordy, Monae done a rendition of the Jackson five’s i want you back and ABC and was one of my favourite performances of the night. As a performer she has her own style swag and most importantly performance techniques shown through her quirky yet jazzy dance skills. She continues to keep her fans entertained and Its safe to say that their is know one in the music industry quite like her. I look forward to following her musical journey.
My favorite celebrity twins
India Arie looks so stunningly beautiful in this picture. Although taken a few years ago, Miss Arie proudly shows off her medium length natural hair and as a fellow natural I must say it is refreshing to see this look on a black female celebrity. With the majority of black female celebs sporting long fake extensions, its become so easy for us to forget that many of them have short/medium length “natural” looking hair just like the rest of us….
Afro beats has grown on me massively over the past year. That kind of music that just makes you want to get up and move
