I think it is important for black award shows like this to be in a category of their own peers. I understand that being in a category with other peers of difference genres of music and different movie categories, that it is more important to win because you beat out a wider range of nominees, but “competing” against your own peers and being positively recognized for it is definitely a plus. I think that us as an audience and others as a creative should be more thankful and appreciative of these kind of awards.

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!

Coachella Recap 2018

featured image: thatgrapejuice.net

Coachella was the talk of social media this past weekend ESPECIALLY Beyonce. She stole the show for the WHOLE WEEKEND, with her HBCU band, her reunion with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams from Destinys Child and bringing her sister Solange on stage to kill it with her. Beyonce has the whole Beehive wanting to pledge Beta Delta Kappa, which is the sweatshirt she wore in the second picture. Fans drew the conclusion that Beyonce was a sorority and they wanted to pledge. The letters B-A-K were on her sweatshirt and it could mean B-Beyonce, A-symbolizing Delta, but could also be related to the Roc Nation sign, and the K-for Knowles.
