Should We be Shaming Steve Harvey for his common mistake?

     So clearly the Internet has been buzzing about Steve Harvey and the Miss Universe pageant. If you haven’t heard here’s what happened: Comedian, Actor, Author and Talk Show Host Steve Harvey hosted the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. The two finalist were, Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines. Steve accidentally announced Miss Colombia as the Miss Universe winner…… But really it was Miss Philippines that won, according to the announcement card. After he realized his mistake, he apologized and said who the correct winner was. He even made a few tweets about the accident.

 My question is: Was it a common mistake? Should he have been paying attention to the card? Was the announcement card arrange wrong where it could have been confusing?

     In my opinion I believe that the organizers of the show probably went over the structure of the announcement card with him, BUT but it was in very fine print where it says that Miss Philippines was the winner. Honestly, honestly where the winner was located on the card is probably where his thumb was, holding the announcement card.  BUT that’s my opinion.

Why “The Wiz Live!” was AMAZING

 I personally thought The Wiz Live was greatness. Not only was it inspired by the movie The Wiz starring Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Richard Pryor and many more but the movie added it’s own touch of 22nd century to it. Here is my list of the Top 5 reasons why The Wiz Live:

 1. ADDAPERLE—JUST ADDAPERLE

     Addaperle, also known as The Good Witch of the North, made her appearance wearing ALL BLUE, from her hair, all the way down to her shoes. She gave me an auntie vibe. Like one of your hip, middle aged, sweet aunties in your family. She gave Dorothy a kiss for protection and sent her on her way.

2. NE-YO PLAYING THE TIN MAN

ALL of the songs that he sang were perfection!!! “Slide some oil on me” and my favorite song ” What Would I Do, If I Could Feel.” It was so touching. On another note, this guy said “Why the shade?” AND he even hit the new dance, the “dab”; even though it’ origin comes from a strong form of weed, but that’s neither here nor there. Overall I loved his performance.

3. CHOREOGRAPHY WAS BOMB

EMERALD CITY VOGUE was live, and the dancing wasn’t over kill. It looked so smooth, clean and perfected. The dancers didn’t over work themselves. I LOVED IT. Also the “Poppies” dance was very exotic and sexy. I would not have expected that dancing for this kind of musical, but it was in tune and also clean cut.

4. THE COSTUMES

The Emerald City dancers costumes were legit as hell, just like their dancing AND the Poppies outfits went with their dancing…EXOTIC. I do like the the fact they added flowers on the costumes (i.e Poppy Flowers), OH and I definitely didn’t forget about Ms. Mary J. Blige. It was a cute dress minus the gadgets but since they were applied, it added an “Evil Affect” to her with the wire swirls, and the head pieces and just the black look overall. Her boots she wore were HOT and looked comfy too. I didn’t too much care for her acting in the musical but I loved her outfit lol.

5. QUEEN LATIFAH PLAYING THE WIZ

Let me break it down without going on a rant:

  • Her outfit was great…and green
  • She played a powerful character, as a black WOMAN, and the original “Wiz” was a black MAN.
  • Casting her was showing gender equality.
  • With her playing a male role then being exposed as a woman, shows that the director didn’t mind stepping out of the box.
  • Last but not least, anything she touches, she kills it.

Empire Season Finale

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! That Empire Season Finale last night was a must-see. The show started off with Jamal being nominated for an American Sound Award for his R & B sound “Heavy”, which is like  a comparison to the Billboard Awards.  Alicia Keys was in the previous episode playing a singer name Skye Summers; her and Jamal had a little connection and a even small kissing scene. In last night’s show Jamal and Skye performed a song at a nominee party and rocked it. Charlamagne Tha God made an appearance on the show, at the nominee party throwing shade as usual. He called out Skye for being mixed and not really being black. He even called out Jamal for being gay and saying that fans would be confused about his gender preference. Y’all know how Charlamagne can get.

Moving along, Jamal is on fire at this point, he stars in a Pepsi Commercial which is aired on the show and he gets two more ASA nominations such as: Video of the Year for “Heavy” and Video of the Year with his brother Hakeem for the video “Ain’t About the Money.” AND one more nomination for Song of the Year for “Power” and his dad Luscious was along side in the category as well for his song “Boom Boom Boom.”

Meanwhile, Luscious business partner Meme White tells everyone that Camilla, Hakeem’s old flame, is her wife. JUICY RIGHT??? Anywho, Luscious, Meme and the Board of Trustees have a meeting and Meme blasts Luscious by showing a video of him talking bad about the members of the board, saying he would get rid of them if they vote against him, well since Empire is now public, Meme calls for a meeting to vote to remove Luscious as CEO of Empire.

In the midst of all that, Camilla pays Hakeem a visit, even though the cameras didn’t show it, but the audience is pretty sure that she tries to persuade Hakeem to vote against his dad–SCANDALOUS.

While all of that is going on, Cookie goes to the prison where she spent 17 years at, and holds a concert there, bringing along Hakeem an his new singer girlfriend Laura. After the performance, Cookie tells Hakeem about the marriage between Camilla and Meme and of course he didn’t know.

At the meeting, 4 people voted against Luscious and the ones that did vote for him were himself of course, Jamal, Andre…but Hakeem voted against his dad, with the help of Camilla’s persuasion. So with Luscious being out, Meme announces that she is handing over her position to Camilla, her wife. Sooooo technically Camilla can give Empire to Hakeem if she wanted to and it seems like that was her plan.

Lastly, Anika has been visiting Rhonda, Andre’s wife, because Rhonda is pregnant with the official grandson of the family and Anika got pregnant by Hakeem but he doesn’t know yet. Welllll, somehow Rhonda’s alarm system went off while she was in the house alone and she gets pushed down the stairs by an intruder and she dies.Hmmmmmmm I’m thinking it was Anika because she seems jealous of Rhonda being open with her pregnancy and she, Anika, can’t. Tisk Tisk.

The next season doesn’t start until March but I’m sure it’ll be a good start.

That’s all I got for ya! Leave your comments below!!
