This was the greatest concert I've been to in a LONGGGG time. Although my homegirl did not want to take ANY pics :( lol... we had a BALL. Every one was on "Cloud 25". ALL artists put on a hell of a show! Highly impressed. After Currensy set.. he said "I hope ya'll didn't think I was about to leave. I'm about party wit ya'll" and jumped right in the crowd 0_0. He was walkin through different rows taking pictures with people like it was nothin. Everyone mobbed. It was crazy. I have so much more admiration and respect for Big Sean now. Not only bc of his looks (girly laugh) but... during his set.. he went IN.. and between songs expressed how much this means to him and the fans mean to him. He even shared how he cried almost 15mins. straight in his moms' arms when his album dropped. He was so sincere with everything. It's artists like this that make you feel like you being a fan and paying for their shows is worthwhile. Just HUMBLE. I can't even describe. Nevertheless... Another event to go in the books...
Got there early..

It started filling up...

In the margarita line. I'm not sure what was going on here...

Simple already

Amy...


It saddened me Saturday morning to hear that this wasn't a rumor. Sigh. Too soon.

RIP Amy Winehouse

My favorite track by her... for more reasons than one...

"I'd rather be.. at home with Ray... I ain't got sev-en-ty days...."



S/o to The homie Fife for sending me this version. I love it. It's so fitting. Bittersweet.

Pod Post Thursdays: Her | Tyler, the Creator

#PodPostThursdays
HER

He'd cry to me about his life and if I text I get pissed when I get no reply...

It's only right I altered the lyrics to "He". #Applicable. Correlation equivalent.I want the cheesy dates at the movies
And stupid walks at the beach
And sharing straws in a cup
I NEVER HAD THAT...


I could tell 'em the truth and say he didn't like me much
But instead I lie and say he moved to Nebraska...


ART is LOVE

One of the many things I'm fascinated with...
I thought these were too dope. Love em.




Passionate.. Mannheim Street Art

Kudos to "Single Ladies"


I was informed today that my favorite show on television right now, "Single Ladies", has just signed on for a 2nd Season. :-) This is such a good show (concept and representation wise). I can't wait.

I could try and find…
a thousand reason’s why…
you’re alone..
and Acting SO COLD.. - Ruff Endz


For my ladies a little “bummed” inside about that ‘Love’ thing.. don’t give up hope.. it’ll come. Just when you think there is no one who pays attention or cares… it’s someone out there admiring everything about you...



Side-Commentary: I particularly chose this video for the story line. The main character (Malinda Williams) spends most of her time working and going to school. Although she may “appear” to be ok.. we as women all know.. there is a little thing on the inside that wishes we had a companionship with someone. In the video she is so focused on the other things (and paying him no mind) that later she discovers he is actually admiring more than her looks. This is one of the more realistic “love” stories compared to most. There’s still hope for us (on both accounts).
“How was your day baby?…. Open up your heart.”


Queen Bey is so Complex...

In this current issue of Complex Mag...
On how her husband Jay-z inspires her Jay’s music is more than music.His lyrics have fathered generations. All that he has overcome gives millions so much hope. There are moments when I see his lips moving and I can see lyrics floating above his head and I think, ‘Wow! How did I get so lucky to be able to witness this level of genius so closely?’
^^^ Another reason why I am so in love with her although she has my man lls . In this article... she exudes confidence without being cocky and displays extreme classiness. This couldn't have been a more perfect interview. You can see the growth. I'm so proud.






On being compared to other female artists and rumored feuds.There is room on this earth for many queens. I have an authentic, God-given talent, drive, and longevity that will always separate me from everyone else. I’ve been fortunate to accomplish things that the younger generation of queens dream of accomplishing. I have no desire for anyone else’s throne. I am very comfortable in the throne I’ve been building for the past 15 years.




still Wanna Rumble w/ the "Bey" huh??
My favorite song from the "4" album... plus it's been stuck in my mind all day.. so I figured i'd throw this in there too =)

The album isn't what I expected def. a Left turn from the "I Want You" mixtape . I thought it was going to be longer too #shrug. I've only listened once so far, and will give it a second spin sometime this week. Nevertheless... I love this guy as an artist so he gets my support.



This my jam right here :) And no your words aren't audible... reception is bad when I'm calling you...




Sn: I sooo meant to post this yesterday when the album dropped. :-/

“We belong on the top but we ain’t trippin..cause we’ll get there in a minute”- S. Franklin

So if you know the truth all you think about is that thing…





Ppl love to kick ur dreams and see you fail. STOP telling them to everyone…EVERYone doesn’t need to know them. {One of the primary reasons I’m such a loner and so private}. Just keep quiet and make moves. You’ll reach your goal and can hit the “kanye shrug”. You’ll be on top..and they’ll be in the same place they were last ..at the bottom. No reason to let the “unnecessary” hinder you from ANYTHING. Success is near…keep reaching…


I was heavy heavy heavy on my grizzle...
And none of ya’ll really cared about me...
And none of ya’ll really cared about me...
Now guess what?? I’m all you see…






Side Bar:





Entertained myself...
laughed at myself…

Had the lowest self esteem..

But now my facebook poppin..
Cause I told the same ones I would be the hot shxt…One day…

Always be a hater tryna shoot down any dreams…
