I'm so proud of my lil cousin/sister.

Wasssssssssssss up fam,

 

I just wanted to post this video of my cousin from the Nate Berkus Show today. She was able to be interviewed by Nate and had a chance to meet Star Jones. I'm so proud of her. This is one black young lady who is doing her thing. She holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of South Carolina, a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Marist College, a Master of Divinity Degree from New York Theological Seminary, a preacher at my home…

My interview with Black Pearls Magazine

Ella: Where are you from? How did you start your writing journey?

I am originally from NYC but have resided in NJ for the past 15 years. I began my writing journey as a child with short stories and poetry but it wasn't until I was in my mid-twenties that I published my first poem. It would be another ten years before my first book was published.

Remembering 9/11…..

I just want to pay tribute to the men, women, and children who lost their lives, the brave people who gave their lives, and the Heroes who responded to 9/11. I was in New York City when the World Trade Center was attacked. I will never forget the faces, I will never forget the sound, and I will never forget my friend who lost her life in the Twin Towers.

REST IN PEACE

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT ONE BEING TOUCHED A WORLD OF MANY?

My wonderful hood family......

I just finished watching what may have been the most emotionally draining memorial service I've ever endured. The one and only Michael Joseph Jackson has gone home to be with our Father. I sat here and cried as I watched and listened to Stevie bellow "Michael, why didn't u staaaaaaaay". I cried and listened as Lady Bernice spoke with such conviction and authority. I even laughed as I cried when Old Barry said Michael sang the song better than Smokie. His big… Continue

Will The Real Men PLEASE Stand Up!!!!!!!!

I was listening to Mr. Moody's Neighborhood (shout out to Moody, Cousin Ed, Naturel, and Tracy for an AMAZING show!!) and I was so intrigued by everything the crew had to say. So I'm pretty much just going to be piggy backing off of some of the things they spoke on. Granted there are some extraordinary men in the world and we have a great amount of them right here in the hood. Regardless of that fact there is a significant amount of men (or so called men I should say) who are not stepping up… Continue

Jhene Aiko's debut studio album Souled Out hits stores next week on September 9th, and today, we have her latest video "The Pressure."  In the video (directed by rapper/actor Childish Gambino and Calmatic) Jhene navigates the "pressure" of maintaining a relationship and raising a child (played by her real-life daughter Namiko) while being a musician.

In addition to "The Pressure", Jhene's album will feature No I.D., Common, Key Wane, Fisticuffs, James Fauntleroy, and Dot Da Genius.

And starting September 19th, she'll appear with The Weeknd on his four-city “King of the Fall” tour (with ScHoolboy Q) at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

 photo ckelly1.jpg

R&B starlets Kelly Rowland and Ciara were spotted at The Grove yesterday. See them on their motherly stroll inside..

 photo ckelly2.jpg

Kelly Rowland, wearing a white t-shirt and black flats, was spotted holding her belly yesterday as she walked through The Grove yesterday with her bestie Ciara (who was seen carrying her son Future).   You'll recall that Kelly is expecting a baby boy with husband Tim Witherspoon

The ladies spent the day shopping, and were spotted grabbing lunch too. It's obvious that ladies had a lot to catch up on.  We're sure Ciara had a few tips for Kelly on motherhood while Kelly may have given CiCi tips on getting over an ex and calling off an engagement.

Chris Brown Cops A Plea Deal, Pleads GUILTY In D.C. Assault Case + UPDATE On Suge Knight Since Pre-VMA Shooting

We have some updates surrounding Chris Brown's D.C. assault case and the aftermath of Suge Knight’s injuries after getting shot at a pre-VMA party. Deets inside…

 photo ChrisBrownCourtDateeDm5mij86qDl.jpg  

Chris Brown is totally over his pending assault case in Washington D.C. So much so, he copped a plea agreement and pled guilty to misdemeanor assault in court this morning, telling the judge, "I would like to say to the court, I’m sorry." He was sentenced to time served.   You’ll recall, Chris and his bodyguard were accused of hitting and punching Parker Adams outside of the W Hotel near the White House last October.

But he isn't out of the woods yet.  The "victim" has filed a $1.5 million civil lawsuit against Chris and his bodyguard. The man's attorney said his client suffered a fractured nose and other injuries to his face as a result of the altercation.

The “Loyal” singer’s misdemeanor assault trial had been looming for some time, after it was delayed back in April when Breezy’s bodyguard was found guilty of misdemeanor assault. His bodyguard was a key witness in his case, so since he decided to appeal his conviction and not testify for CB’s trail, Chris decided to wash his hands with the whole ordeal and plead guilty. The “New Flame” singer has his new album X coming out soon (which he needs to promote), so he’s trying to head out on tour as soon as possible.

And you know who was right by CB’s side for his day in court...yep! Karrueche. The two were mobbed with questions by photogs as they walked out of the H. Carl Moultrie I Court House of the District of Columbia. Check it:
