It started off with what I thought was a joke, but alas! The male romper is a thing that has taken flight. Here I was, minding my Twitter business, when I was bombarded with images of men in rompers, quadriceps flexin’. I wondered, were #RompHims taking over for the 99 and the 2017?
Last night, I was befuddled to find the incomparable Queen of Hip Hop Soul serenading the Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, as she sat there, frozen, trying to understand just what in the hell was going on?? Continue reading →
Today, like most days, a debate broke out on Twitter. This time, we weren’t arguing about child support, $200 dates, or what it means to be a ho. No, today, ladies and gentlemen, we were fighting about who’s better-80’s or 90’s babies.
It’s that time of year of again-time to recap the BET Awards, that is. Last night, our friends over at Black Entertainment Television delivered yet another captivating award show that we’ll remember for years to come. From amazing Prince tributes, to some not so amazing performances, the BET Awards, like always, if nothing else, gave us something to talk about. After watching, I have 9 pressing questions that I need answered.
Just when we thought Rachel Dolezal had made her home somewhere in a small (mostly Black, of course) neighborhood on the outskirts of some city, making a living by braiding hair and doing sew-ins, never to be heard from again, she pops up on the campus of Howard University. And of ALL things, she’s filming a movie.
Everybody knows a Hotep, mainly because Hoteps never stop Hoteppin’. What is a ‘Hotep’, you ask? A Hotep is Black man or woman who is really down for Black people and the “cause…” or somethin’ like that. In my humble opinion, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but of course, Hoteps tend to take things WAY too far, WAY too often. Frankly, things are starting to get out of hand.
I wasn’t going to watch at first. I had made up in my mind that the Academy didn’t deserve my viewership. Really, it didn’t deserve ANY of our viewership…people of color, that is. After all, it was the 88th Academy Awards, and we were still having a conversation about the lack of diversity. We were tired. But ironically, the Academy asked Chris Rock, a legendary comedian, known for making crude jokes and pushing the envelope as far as it could possibly go to host this year’s ceremony. And while I had pledged not to tune in on Sunday, I just had to see it for myself. I wanted to see Chris tear the Academy a new one, LIVE and in color.
This year has been…interesting. A lot of things have happened. The Nae Nae, Donald Trump, Raven-Symone…Madonna kissed Drake. I mean, this year has really been a doozy. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m totally looking forward to 2016. (I have a thing for even numbers.) But while 2015 was QUITE entertaining, there are some things that reaaalllly got on my nerves this year. Let me break it down for you-here are the top 14 things I hope to GOD we leave right here in 2015.
Ahhhh yes. My President is Black. I don’t have a blue Lambo, but I totally get how Young Jeezy felt in that one song. And while our President graduated from both Columbia AND Harvard…sometimes, when confronted with really stupid people, he gets to show off his comedic genius. And SOMETIMES, he doesn’t even crack a smile. (We call that SHADE) After the terrorist attacks in Paris, followed by conservatives calling on the President to “do something”, it became crystal clear that Obama wasn’t here for any Monday morning Quater-backing. And as the video of him telling people to “pop off” went viral, it made me think of all the other times our President has NOT been here for your sh*t. Click below and enjoy.
Ladies, we’ve heard it time and time again when we meet a new man. You’ve been talking on the phone, and most likely texting throughout the day and night. Things are going really well. This could potentially be the one. YES! Finally! And then it happens. That dreaded text message comes through…”Send me a pic.” You throw the phone. FUUUCCCCKK.
