You may not be familiar with the name Elijah Shaw, but one thing I’m sure of is that you’ve seen his face more times than you probably realize. Elijah Shaw, the CEO of Icon Services Corporation, a Minnesota based security agency has made a business out of protecting some of your favorite celebs. Everyone from 50 Cent and Usher to Naomi Campbell and Chaka Khan, have solicited Elijah’s services at one point or another. And now, Elijah’s found a way to turn his passion into a very successful empire.
Let’s be honest. Tyrese is one of the greatest voices of our generation. He’s the personification of R&B. When you listen to his music, it becomes very clear that he eats, lives and breathes music. So why is Black Rose his last album? And where is he going from here?
For years, Bravo has been dishing out the drama with a few of the most successful reality series on television. From Real Housewives of Atlanta, to Married to Medicine, a lot of the network’s hit shows have been filmed right here in Atlanta, GA. Now, with Bravo’s newest addition to the roster, you’ll never be able to look at PTO moms the same again. Mother Funders, a show about the ups and downs of being a dedicated wife, mother, and full time PTO member, is taking reality TV to a new level. This group of feisty women want nothing more than to raise money for their children’s school, but as expected, they run into a few roadblocks along the way. I got a chance to sit down with one of the cast members, Mrs. Amber Bryant, and she had plenty to say about the cutthroat world of the PTO. Click below for details!
So you guys know I absolutely LOVE some good reality television. And lucky for me (and you) WE TV is launching a new Atlanta based reality show, called “Cutting It in the ATL.” This show highlights the lives of five experienced stylists who are giving each other a run for their money. I had the opportunity to attend the “Cutting It” press luncheon today, and we had a little bit of girl talk.
Wow. After weeks of internet buzz and built up anticipation, I was finally able to sit down and see this movie for myself. Last night, I joined some of Atlanta’s movers and shakers as we kicked back and enjoyed this awesome film. I’ll be the first to admit that it takes a lot to impress me, but after last night, I was moved. This film definitely lives up to its name.
Like many people, you’ve probably been wondering where Musiq Soulchild has been. Time and time again, since he stepped on the scene back in 2000 with his classic album Aijuswanaseing, the Philly native has delivered nothing but hits. Smooth, and pleasing to the ear, his music has always been so relatable, leaving a lasting impression with REAL music lovers all over the world. Now, the entertainer is trying something new. He’s switching things up. He’s reemerged as something none of us were expecting…a Hip Hop artist called “The Husel.”
If you’ve been paying attention, there’s no question that you’ve heard of Ernestine Johnson. If you’re a social media Queen (or King) like me, you first came across this young lady on Instagram or maybe even Youtube. It seemed like everywhere I looked, I saw her video. She even became the topic of discussion in some of my groupchats with my besites, everyone praising her for her honesty, for her undeniable skill, for her raw talent.
In the wake of the much anticipated release of Furious 7, Tyrese Gibson is opening up to his fans about his new movie and his new album.
It seems like just yesterday that Tyrese captured our hearts and ears as he sang that powerful rendition of the Coca-Cola jingle back in 1994. He was so young. We had no idea we’d still be talking about him 20 years later. It’s amazing to see how far he’s come, how much he’s grown as an artist, and how much he’s developed as a person.
Bevy Smith, best known to the younger generation as the no holds barred, feisty co-host of Bravo’s “Fashion Queens”, made her way to Clark Atlanta University today to talk about Harlem’s Fashion Row and the what it means to have diversity in the fashion world. This initiative, sponsored by McDonald’s as a part of their 365 Black campaign, seeks to encourage young people of color to dive into the fashion industry head first.
