Happy Birthday to The King of Pop, Michael Jackson

Today is Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday. He was such an influence on many generations, starting from the 1960’s until now, CURRENTLY in music.

He was nominated for 38 Grammys and actually won 13 from 1979 up until 2010, after  his death in 2009.

Michael released 10 studio and even had a role in The Wiz as the Scarecrow, one of the main character (DUH) just in case you didn’t know.

His songs have been sampled by artists like SWV (“Human Nature Remix”), Chris Brown (“She Ain’t You”), LL Cool J (“Hey Lover”), and many more! Just recently, Drake used Michael Jackson’s vocals on his song “Don’t Matter To Me.” The vocals came from an unreleased song from MJ.

Michael’s music is still relevant today as well as his dance moves. He’s influenced artists such as Chris Brown, Beyonce, NeYo, NSYNC, Kanye, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jay-Z and of course many.

May he continue to Rest In Peace and let his legacy live on!

Kanye and Lil Wayne attended 2 Chainz wedding but you gotta see what they had on lol.

Episode 5 of Entertainment Talk is Up

HEY EVERYONE!!

I finally posted a new episode of Entertainment Talk on my YouTube channel so make sure y’all check it out!

I loaded two episodes because I only have a 15 min limit on videos due to the type of account I have with YouTube.

In Episode 5 part 1, I talked about all these reality show fights and if you feel like they are overrated. I specifically talked about Love & HipHop, Black Ink Crew and Teen Mom 2 having fights on their show last week. Make sure y’all check out my post I made about that   –> Are We Tired of Reality Show Fights? I also talked about the last episode of Power and whether or not y’all think Teresi will live up to his word with the feds and rat out Tommy? Will Kanan prove that he is not loyal AGAIN? Was Terry wrong for walking out on Tasha when he was supposed to help her out by lying to the feds? I talked about all that! Check that out below!

In Episode part 2, I talked about Nicki Minaj’s interview with Funk Flex and how she kind of put Safaree on blast. She’s been coming across really aggressive lately. Do y’all think she is coming across as being a bitter Betty? Comment on my blog and let me know. Also I discussed Teyana Taylor dropping out of her tour with Jeremih over some mistreatment she received by him. She decided to start her own tour titled the K.T.S.E Tour, the same as her album title. Check it out below!

Are We Tired of Reality Show Fights?

So reality shows are my weakness, my guilty pleasure. Shows like Love and Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, Black Ink Crew, Growing up Hip Hop, Real Housewives of Atlanta, ALL THAT! 

BUT I’m getting tired of all the fights. It was entertaining at first but now it’s so common that it seems staged. For instance:

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood has thee MOST fights. Recently, Lyrica and A1’s mothers got into a fight over some adultery possibly for Lyrica supposedly flirting or wanting to have sex with Safaree. So the two older women threw shit at each other and just causing an unnecessary scene. Then A1 and Safaree had argument about the situation…with a damn Honda Accord in between them..STAGED! 

Saf & A1

Then there’s Black Ink Crew, specifically Chicago since that’s the one that’s being aired right now. The crew is separated by 9 Mag and Loyal Ink. Tattoo artist Lily is with Loyal Ink and her ex Junior is with the owner, under 9 Mag. The whole crew went down to Jamaica, supposedly not knowing that the other squad was going to be there and there was a fight. The girl Lily ran up on Junior’s girlfriend Adriana, because Junior who was drunk and kinda disrespecting the Loyal Ink name (so she got the next best thing). Then a new tattoo artist names Reese decided to run with Lily to fight Junior and/or his girlfriend (It’s still unclear.) The girl Reese said that Junior hit her in the face and then that was an issue, next thing you know, Junior is fighting producers and even accidentally hit Ryan in the face. By the end of it all, Junior and his girlfriend were sent home. What could have avoided this is, Lily being the fire cracker that she is, shouldn’t have pursued Junior or paid him any mind. Junior shouldn’t have gotten too drunk and honestly, if he was left alone then the fight would have never happened. I HATE how these reality shows take they ass to a different country or vacay in another city and they decide to fight. But the real question is: who’s in charge of this shit? Are the producers provoking the cast to fight? Are they bribing the cast by telling them if they fight, they get more money.

Lastly, Teen Mom 2. Fighting on reunion shows! Teen Mom Briana started dating her co-worker/fellow Teen Mom Kailyn (Kail) ex-husband Javi. That’s messy by itself. So there were words and shade exchanged before the reunion. Kail was talking her shit, as she should because her “coworker” is dating her ex-husband. Then it gets messy when Javi and Briana breaks up and he slightly talks about it Kail’s podcast. Briana decides to go on a Twitter rant and say some disrespectful things about Kail and her one of her son’s father. Kail being the savage that she is, decides that she wants to have a face-to-face conversation with Briana at the reunion before they actually go on stage. The conversation was brief because Briana really wasn’t trying to address or admit to what she said. Conversation ended, then it’s time to go on stage and all of a sudden Briana gets some balls and decides to come at Kail, yelling and screaming. It, again, seemed staged because she had the opportunity to talk to Kail behind closed doors BUT she wanted to put on a show in front of an audience. In this case, I believe that Briana wanted to prove a point that she wasn’t a punk, OR she coulda just wanted to put on a show for the crowd OR lastly she coulda just snapped. Her sister Brittany who appears on the show, even told her she shouldn’t have gon wild like that because it’s making her look like the aggressor.

Okay, I understand reality TV has transpired into non-reality and more staged and scripted but damn can they do less scripted fighting? Reality TV has given off the perception that it’s all about fighting and it doesn’t help that a lot of them are Black women. YES, I know there are shows like RHO New Jersey, and The Real World that have white women fighting as well. Overall, Black, White, Asian, Mexican, Saudi Arabian, whoever needs to stop the stereotypical fighting on TV. Yes it gets the show ratings, yes it’s entertaining, yes it may get the show renewed for another season and that’s more money BUT is that what they’re values are based upon? More picking fights = more money? I meannnnn unless they’re getting paid $1 millon per episode per fight then DO YOU BOO; But if that’s not the case, then they need to reevaluate some things.

Honestly, I think everyone as a whole need to cut their scripted reality TV intake, including myself.

Make sure you check out my YouTube Channel, Episode 5 part 1 of me discussing these fights and how overrated they are.

The BlacKkKlansmen Movie Review

Credit: reelrundown.com

Over the weekend  I seen this movie and did NOT know that it was based on a true story. I really thought it was just another great movie that  Jordan Peele wrote and Spike Lee so happenedly directed BUT that was partially the case. The man character Ron Stallsworth, is played by John David Washington, which is Denzel Washington’s SON. Ron is a rookie at the Colorado Springs police department and is placed on special assignment when he persuaded the chief that the KKK needed to be investigated. He infiltrated the Klan by calling them (got the number from local newspaper, stupid right?) Since there wasn’t caller ID back then, Ron didn’t have to call private. He literally put on his “white voice” and got in.

Ron used his “white voice” over the phone and had his white coworker actually go meet up with the klan and eventually join. There’s always one skeptical person and that was one of the Klansmen. He tried to intimidate the “white Ron Stallsworth” but it didn’t work.

The real Ron Stallsworth befriended a woman by the name of Patrice, from the Black Student Union at a local college and she was pro Black and down with the Black Power Movement. The police department tried to compare her and the  student union to the “dangerous” Black Panther Movement but they weren’t like that BUT even if they were, they would be fighting or equality and respect.

Any who, the Klan was working on an attack towards the black student union, specifically Patrice because she was very vocal on the racism she faced, specifically from the Colorado Police Department, an officer that Ron was familiar with.  

Ron had spoken to the David Duke over the phone on multiple occasions. David Duke was the head of the Klan at the time and so happened to be a politician. He was granted the opportunity to meet him in person, as himself, as his security for the initiation of the white version of him being inducted into the Klu Klux Klan. Along with the initiation going on, that same day was the day that the KKK had planned to attack Patrice and the Student Union. Ron stopped the attacked and it ended up back firing on the people involved because they were the ones who ended up dying.

While investigating the KKK, There weren’t any cross burnings happening in that chapter, nor any hangings or other causes of death. Ron also helped the FBI identify missing weapons (that were used in the attempted attack) that were stolen by military members who were actually in the KKK as well. They were arrested.

What was educational about the movie?

  • The fact that it was a true story and the fact that you wouldn’t be able to do this now as easy due to technology.
  • The fact that they really thought that black people only talked a certain way. The klan said that black people say things like “shucking and jiving” AND EVEN MORE FUNNY, instead of saying “Are you going to the store to get some chicken” we say “Ar-uh”, like we really can’t say the word “are”. So judgmental, but are we surprised…nah.

Why was this funny?

  • This was funny because the Klan and any other racist people don’t give Black People enough credit for being just as smart and even smarter than them.
  • The Klan got GOT. Now’s who’s the dumb one.
  • Also, the fact the David Duke didn’t know he was talking to a black man over the phone and he was sooooo comfortable with the real Ron. Btw, David Duke was played by Topher Grace, who played Eric Forman on That 70’s Show.

Why was the infiltration successful?

  • Ron saved lives
  • Ron prevented SOME cross burnings
  • He got a lot of intel

Why was the movie successful?

Well, it brought in  $10.8 Million opening weekend! 

I  really enjoyed this movie. It was informative, entertaining, kind of angering because of the language used, but overall it was a good movie.

What did you all think of the movie?

Back to L.A: Birthday Trip

So my birthday was Sunday (August 5th) and it was GREAT!! I went back to LA. If you can remember, last April I made a post about going to Cali –>   I’m Going Back to Cali!

I switched up my itinerary this time and kind of went with the flow of things. I can honestly say this trip was better! So let me tell you how it started:

Friday:

Flight was at 5:50am Friday morning…BUT IT WAS CANCELED. WTF RIGHT! It literally was canceled 2 hours before take off so I had to change my flight. Luckily I did it  just in time because I was one of the last people to board the plane.

I had a layover in Las Vegas, which was cool because I had never been there  and I was able to play the slot machines in the airport. BUT  my flight there was delayed by almost an hour BUT I still kept a positive attitude because it was my birthday weekend.

5C7DBCFD-690F-4289-A712-78F76AC23152

I FINALLY  got to LA and met up with my friends and what was the first thing we did? SHOTS!!! (Of Fireball of course) then VENICE BEACH!!

Of course we had to experience the nightlife, sooooo we stepped out and I HAD to show out! 38C5A59A-C2AB-44D1-BFB4-CA941D7A26A2BE523F23-2370-49EC-904C-27691EA7B725

Saturday:

Next day, we decided to go to The actual Fashion Nova store at the Burbank mall. Not impressed at all.  Of course there are a few of the actual stores in LA but the one we went to looked very cheap, needless to say. I did find a cute dress there tho 🤷🏽‍♀️

We walked around  a bit in Hollywood,  saw the Hollywood star of fame. We even seen Trump’s star or lack there of since it’s been destroyed.

We got a good recommendation from our Uber for a place to eat called Beauty & Essex. Talk about GOOD FOOD!!

The plan that night was to go out again but uhhhhhh, we tapped  out and was K-O. Embarrassing right lol?

BUT we made up for it the next day lol.

Sunday:

The day of my BIRTHDAY!!

We started off the day hiking at Griffith Park and it was amazing!! VERY high up but we could see the beautiful city!

25C04CA1-BD6F-4D3E-80AC-0F944D720D65

Then off to Santa Monica beach, which wasn’t too impressive. Too many people and dirty water 😟👎🏾 But we still enjoyed the sand and light sun.

Last but not least, I had to be a little extra for my birthday for the last night and uhhh…. yeah..

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

Overall, I loved this trip this time around. All my peoples vibed with each other, and we already talking about a trip next year!

Where have y’all traveled to this year so far?
