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

SAY WHAT?!: Tiny ALLEGEDLY Admits To Surgical Procedure To PERMANENTLY Change Her Eye Color

 photo tinyeye.jpg

Tired of wearing contacts to change her eye color, Tiny has taken it to the next level and allegedly got implants to change her eye color. No really. Deets inside….

First breast implants, then booty injections…now eye color-changing surgery?

Since returning from a recent vacay with her daughter Zonnique and hubby T.I., “Tiny & Shekinah’s Weave Trip” star Tiny Harris came back with a brand new look…ice gray eyes. And apparently, she allegedly went under the knife for the permanent fix.

Once she debuted her new eye color on Instagram, rumors sparked that the reality star had undergone surgery to have her iris color changed.

Confirming rumors herself, she hopped on Instagram and confirmed she did indeed have surgery to permanently change the color of her eyes using implants to change the color from brown to “ice-gray”. She thanked the doctor who performed the procedure and seemed pleased with the "exceptional customer service" she received. She allegedly posted (and deleted):

"I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and loving it! Thank you Dr. Montasser Menif for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true! I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry! Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants. Special thanks to #Spencer Vessa for all that you’ve done to make the process happen. You’re amaZing & thank you #Faiza for your exceptional customer service, For more info everyone GO visit brightocular website; and to get the #BEST #DEAL when booking your appointment, mention Promo Code #KM404 and tell them I sent you!!!"

Why does this sound like a damn infomercial? Sighs...

Her homie/stylist Shekinah Jo posted a picture of Tiny’s new look via her Instagram with the caption,

"It's us!!!! @majorgirl and me!!!!! Here again in NYC to see our girl @WendyWilliams notice anything different about my buddy??"

And Tiny also posted pics of her on the set of her first film Meet The Blacks where she's playing a character named "ShaRonda." Wondering if the role was cast for a black woman with gray eyes...

Check out this clip of Tiny's new eyes:

Looks like Willow Smith is gearing up to kick off her singing career once again.

After releasing a few tracks of her own, 13-year-old Willow Smith was tapped to perform before a packed crowd at The Fader magazine’s FORT concert in Brooklyn last night.

Before her 14th birthday this Halloween, she and her brother Jaden Smith wowed the stage with their performance, vibing to some of their original tunes. Willow performed a few tracks from her upcoming EP titled 3, which is expected to be released on iTunes Nov. 10th.

She was also joined on stage by songstress SZA to perform their duet “Domino“ at The Fort for the magazine’s three-day music event.
