For those that don't know, i LOVE to write, i truly feel like it's one of my
fortes "callings" in life *side eye* I plan on writing a life story and to get it published sometime in the near future. From my domestic abusive childhood to everyday things that people can relate to - man or woman, my goal is to INSPIRE!
We was vibin for a minute, everything was koo,
First one I hit up before and after skoo,
Built this love while sober, but might as well have been drinkin,
Sober thoughts became drunken words, what was I thinkin?
I told the world about you, and we took the cutest flicks,
Laughed at all the bitter faces of them triflin, jealous chicks,
My heart was tossed overboard, my boat gradually sinkin,
My mind was just so overwhelmed, i had suicidal thinkin,
I brought an end to this madness, the storm had yet to brew,
Lies built our foundation, and they tore them down too,
I became reckless at the mouth, my heart was surely shrinkin,
My brain had also abandoned me, forever altering my thinkin,
To the men who had me, I hope you all have grown,
Amy Winehouse said it best, let the tears dry on their own,
I look to the Heavens, my eyes suddenly start winkin,
I shoulda known all along, to let God do my thinkin.
I'm sure a few of you ladies can relate to this epiphany-driven word that showcases the ups & downs of a relationship, and how stupid you feel after it's all said and done. With heartbreaks and splits surrounding our lives, it's hard to think of love without a negative connotation sometimes. Hopefully this hit home with someone.

This is the latest promo ad for her House of Dereon clothing line expansion to Sasha Fierce is Dereon. For those who don't know, Sasha Fierce was introduced to the world as Bey's alter ego with the spunky and vehement side that was unleashed during her live performances. She portrays the image well as she strikes diva-like poses below:

Now I don't normally do this, but I had an epiphany waking up from my nap this afternoon and decided to tweet it (like i do most other things). And the RT's for it were so abundant, it made me feel like I wasn't the only one who felt this way, which is why I've decided to take it here to expound on it. The tweet was:
"Why does it feel better to prove our doubters wrong than it does to prove our supporters right?"
And since no answer was posed for this question, I will take it upon myself to answer it, in the best and most unbiased way possible. We have people that are on our side from the jump and are rooting for us, but for some reason, we have a bigger urge to please/impress/and show for the people who dont believe in us. But why?
Because we love to see that dumb-founded look our haters get when we prove them wrong and make them eat their words. There is always a greater reaction to someone who didn't believe in something than someone who already does. I just wish I would stop doing things to impress and please the people that are praying on my downfall faithfully. At the same time, the same people wishing you well, are also hoping you fail. So choose your friends wisely.
Lesson: Keep a tight circle and surround yourself with positive people that encourage success for your own satisfaction, rather than someone else's disbelief.

Proverbs 18: 21 (New King James Version)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Another translation says "those who love to talk, will eat their own words". Which is basically saying you shall reap the actions in which you sew towards other people. I love this scripture because it personifies the power & strength that words have. The Bible uses the tongue to symbolize words, and in doing so, says that life and death are at your own discretion. If you curse and slander the names of people; expect to reap the same actions done to yourself. If you bless and commend other people; you shall reap that nature as well.
My Thoughts: This definitely makes me re-think some of the things I've said on this blog, lol. Be blessed and God be with you.

This post is especially for the ladies out there (and men, if thats ur thing). Yes, I'm accustomed to the tall, dark, & handsome, but everybody knows there's more than one shade of fine! Lol. I just wanted to have a *moment of silence* to admire the 3 hottest, hunkiest, white, successful actors/artists in Hollywood today. Between these 3 men, i don't think i can decipher who's the cutest. From left to right its:
If you click the individual names they will lead to more sexy (body) pics of these men. Mmmmm. Enough eye candy for the day, now time to get back to the vegetables (regular-looking men) Lol

As the timeless saying goes "it doesn't hurt to look" right?? Well, not unless it's captured that is! I guarantee you Republicans are having a feast with this one.. Eye candy is everywhere and hard to avoid. Our eyes have this desire to see things pleasing to us, and whether we mean well by it or not, it's almost innate and instinctual to take a peep.
I hope he enjoyed starin at this though, cuz now that he did it once, he knows he can't get caught again, because
America Republicans, will then deem it as an addiction/psychological disorder/perversion problem, etc. I'm laughing at the guy on the right who got a smirk on like he bout to get it poppin wit her later on! It's just funny how pictures can say so much, yet be so deceiving, smh. Now that you've (I've) been fooled, check out the video footage for the real story (via ABC news)--> Obama's Photo Scandal

This is the latest [confirmed] information by the Nashville Police Department, and quite frankly this story is getting more twisted then a crack head hooked on Phonics. Sahel Kazemi is not only selfish for deciding to bring somebody down with her (no pun intended), but for her to not only play the homewrecker, she is playin the role of the typical jump-off. Men, i hope you learn something from this-- never fall asleep before your girl does! Lol

If there was anytime to bring closure to this tragedy, it is NOW. This couldn't have been done any better, and was by far the best tribute to have ever been done. It's dominating Twitter, the blogs, and every other network you can imagine, so I won't speak on the obvious, but rather share my own thoughts & favorite quotes of this memorial.. Singers nowadays are lucky to have a city know who they are.. MJ had the WORLD at his feet.. Dude was a musical genius.
The Jacksons looked stunning tonight. They kept their composure for the most part and look like such a close-knit family, I couldn't imagine being in their shoes and how long of a day they must've had going from a private funeral ceremony to this. God Bless them.
I know a lot of people were shocked (as was I) to see Martin Luther King III and his wife Bernice King to come up and share a few words. Although MJ brought different worlds together through music, let's not forget Martin Luther King, Sr who brought different colors together and was the real reason we have someone like Obama in office now.
I know I wasn't the only one who caught Mariah crack on her 2nd note.. But I'm cuttin her some slack, because I know it's been awhile since she's performed, and to be on such a big stage and be honored to sing for the greatest performer of all time, the pressure can get to ya. But she redeemed herself with her rundown of every pitch on the scale on her last note. Side note: Where was Nick?
Queen Latifah brought a very laxed vibe to her speech, yet had so much swag with the ease her voice brang. Maya Angelou couldn't have picked anybody better to recite her commemoration of Michael (although I would've enjoyed seeing her read it herself). Queen Latifah is pictured as she remembered doing the robot to "Dancing Machine".
Not to sound like a Kobe-hater (because I love the guy and appreciate his raw talent, even though I prefer to have have Lebron on my team) but his speech was rather unnecessary. I found pertinence with Magic's memoir, but Kobe really had nothing to do with this. Remember the Time's music video continues to be a classic, and I remember when I first seen it and saw Magic and thought to myself "what in good hell?" lol
Pregnant and all, since when is that an excuse not to perform? I commend her for doing such a great job. She was by far my favorite performer and sang one of the all-time favorites "Will You Be There". Although a black dress would've been more fitting for this occasion (as everyone else got that memo) she still glowed, no pun intended, and blew us away. You go girl!
The most genuine Jackson out of the 5. Who said the man has lost his touch? Pssh, he still got it yall! From the interview on behalf of the family, to singing a song at his memorial, Jermaine has such a strong and pure heart and God bless him for having such strength to deal with this family loss and speak (sing) on the family's behalf on multiple occasions.
Who said only Americans were performing today? Shaheen Jafargholi stole the show with his rendition of "Who's Lovin' You" and commanded all viewers attention. This Britain's Got Talent phenomena, in the form of a 12 year old's body, is sure to take the world by storm, and there's no doubt he was indeed impacted by Michael Jackson to do what he does.
If you're like every other African-American in this country, you would've thought Al Sharpton would make a fool of himself (as he usually does) as he tries to use the power in his voice to convey a point, when words alone can do that job, regardless of the pitch of voice. However, he made me eat my words as this was by far the best speech he's ever given-- sympathetic, genuine, and compassionate. I guess this death has humbled even the most arrogant and pompous of us.
Notable mentions: Smokey Robinson's speech, Stevie Wonder's performance, John Mayer's uhhm.. "performance", Trey Lorenz's duet w/ Mariah Carey, Berry Gordon's speech, Usher's performance, and Paris breaking down at the end (although minutes earlier she was fiddling with her purse *pause*)
And in closing, I want to share some of my favorite quotes said by those who said speeches during the memorial..
"Kids, there was nothing strange about your father.. what was strange is the things he had to go through. He outsang his cynics, he outdanced his doubters, he outperformed his critics. Some came to say Goodbye, but i came to say Thank You." -Al Sharpton
"The comments went from 'where is he?' to 'there he goes again. I want to be remembered as a person, not a personality. There's nothing that could be done if we don't raise our voice as one." -Michael Jackson
"We will never know how much pain one can take, but maybe now Michael, they'll leave you alone" -Marlon Jackson
"Although we needed him here on Earth, God must've needed him more" -Stevie Wonder
"He studied the greats and became greater, he rose the bar, then broke it" -Berry Gordy
"Now the King of Pop must bow his head unto the King of Kings" -Luscious Smith
