5.  SHE’S BEEN DETHRONED…

abcnews.com

Well it wasn’t like we didn’t see it coming….Queen Latifa’s self-titled talk show will not be returning for season three.  The news came down last week in a heartfelt letter from Queen herself that the show would be promptly cancelled after this year’s taping of scheduled shows which are scheduled to air through MARCH 2015 and would be wrapping up production. She was very sadden by this news, but honestly the show seemed like a very bland, water-downed version of “ELLEN” with little entertainment value.  Queen’s show wasn’t really relatable, and the edge that we have come to know Queen for wasn’t there, and she seemed like a plastic version of herself. Here’s hoping there’s a series of movies, television projects and other things to keep the multi-faceted entertainer busy after the show wraps, because the world’s not ready to give up on Queen Latifa yet, just her talk show…

4.  A NEW COP HAS BEEN NAMED…

E! didn’t have to look far for a new host far FASHION POLICE after the untimely death of Joan Rivers in late summer. Her replacement is none other than Kathy Griffin, who will bring her brand of rude, crude and hilarious behavior to the show.  She’s is in the same vein as the late Joan Rivers, and she is a designer’s friend, as she wears many designer gowns to most of the events she hosts including the Emmy’s , Red Carpets, and New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper. I believe Ms. Griffin will tear it up with the newly announced SPECIAL EVENT only show.  She will put fear back into the Hollywood starlets as they pick their stylist and their wardrobe. Congratulations Kathy, you will be amazing.

3. WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE CAN’T COME IN…

Rapper Tyga refused to show up at a birthday bash being thrown in his honor at GREYSTONE MANOR, a club in Hollywood, because his WAY UNDER AGED girlfriend KYLIE JENNER (KIM K’S SISTER) couldn’t get into the club. He upset major liquor brands and pissed off many club goers who came because of his top billing because the club wouldn’t risk their liquor license to let the teenage/high school student into the club with the rapper who was just there to make an appearance. You’re really going to mess up money and business because they wouldn’t break the law? Really? Who do you think you are, A Kardashian? Just as you would leave your daughter with Black Chyna at home, TYGA, so should you leave your child’s babysitter, opps my bad, UNDERAGE GIRLFRIEND at home as well.

2.  FADE TO BLACK…

Whoopie Goldberg broke down in tears this week on THE VIEW, as she reported the death of the person who discovered her and her mentor. Famed director and producer Mike Nicols has passed. Husband of retired ABC World News Tonight Anchor and former GMA anchor DIANNE SAWYER, the famed producer/director leaves behind a legacy of work on stage, film and on television. He was the director of WORKING GIRL, SILKWOOOD, WIT, and his most famous, THE GRADUATE. He is a prestigious winner of the EGOT, that’s Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.  He’s survived by his wife, three children and four grandchildren. His legacy will live on through the annals of time.

1. J-A-I-L-O…

America’s favorite father is under harsh scrutiny this week as every woman of a certain age, varying diaspora and occupation all reported that DR. BILL COSBY, either touched them inappropriately or flat out rapped them at some time over the past forty years or so, dating back as far as the late 1960s.  These claims have gone undiscussed by Dr. Cosby, and he went as far as to “strong-hold” the AP reporter who was interviewing him last week into not including specifics about the allegations in his interview.  Dr. Cosby’s accusers range from least famous women who once had aspirations of being actresses, to model Janice Dickinson and Law & Order: S.V.U actress Michelle Hurd, who have all come forward with claims that they were drugged and taken advantage of. Though no charges have been filed, TV-LAND has pulled reruns of THE COSBY SHOW and his NETFLIX and NBC shows have also been cancelled. Dr. Cosby’s reputation is going down faster than his pants, and he doesn’t seem poised to take make an immeidate comeback. But hell, Tyger Woods had the same heat on him, and now he’s making even more money. So, you never know. Good Luck Mr. Cosby. Too damn bad they took away my favorite show from reruns, cause Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable ain’t never did nothing to no one except a fattening sandwich he hid from CLAIRE.

This was the world as I see it this week.

[VIDEO] Chris Brown Surprises Hipsters with A Warhol Pop-Art Tribute!

IMG_0986
Following the announcement of the “Between The Sheets Tour” (featuring Tyga and Trey Songz) Chris Brown set to the streets of L.A., for what seemed to be an art tour. Most commonly known for his rapper/ actor/ singer/ dancer and now artist career, Brown surprised the hipsters of Los Angeles with “The Lost Warhol’s” at the Lurie Art Gallery On La Cienega Blvd. Showcasing what seems to be his new love (sorry Karreuche): spray paint. The gallery was set up with Andy Warhol paintings remastered and remixed, showing the room just how talented this man is growing up to be.

Also exhibiting her work was Karen Bystedt, (pictured above) the artist and photographer behind the original Warhol pieces. A collaboration both art connoisseurs and millennials can both share in common. The night was full of fun and creativity dont believe me? Check out this compilation video for a glimpse of how a pop-star contributed to pop-art in “Andy Goes $treet”.

[Street News] Nazis, Nudes and Disappointing Biopics with Hilarious Memes.

HEY STREET TEAM! THIS WEEK HAS BEEN CRAZY SO, LET’S GET TO IT…

10.  IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORT…

toweleroad.com

Andrew Caldwell became an internet sensation this week when a video of himself at a Church in God in Christ Conference made the rounds of him declaring that he was no longer a homosexual and that he would only date “WOMENS!” Mr. Caldwell says that this video was shot months ago and is just now surfacing. Though there are holes in his story, we can be rest assured that he won’t be “carrying a purse,” or “wearing makeup.” Though he is suing TWITTER for 50 million, yes that’s real money, for the bullying that took place once the video was released. Hmm…no comment I don’t want to be sued.

9.  LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…ON THE SUBWAY?

A young man was simply minding his business on the subway this week in New York, when he was attacked verbally and physically by a young woman, who he plead with to leave him alone. When she hit him, he brought his own brand of whoop ass to the train and knocked the dog piss out of her. They both were charged with aggravated assault, but his charges were dropped amid realizations that he was defending himself. He is now suing the city for his time in jail and trying to convince us that that FUBU jacket he was wearing is still in style.

8.  KNOW WHEN TO FOLD’M…NO WHEN YOU CAN’T HOLD’M…

Hall of Fame’r Jose Canseco was cleaning his gun a few weeks ago and shot his hand accidentally.  Less than two weeks later the former baseball player was playing poker and his finger fell off during the match. Hell, he put a new meaning to being taken for everything…even your fingers…damn…

7.  ONE SWASTIKA PLEASE…

radaronline.com

Rapper Nikki Minaj had to clean up a PR nightmare this week after allegations of her newest video for her song “ONLY” looked as though it was inspired by NAZI symbolism.  When questioned, NIKKI apologized profusely, but also blamed her director for the vision of the lyric video. When interviewed, the director said he was inspired by the works of Leni Riefenstahl who created the Nazi war propaganda films, but this was not a statement on “Nazism” but that of the media controlling the nation and the same oppressive things still being alive today. This sounds like a whole lot of B.S. and nodding to the fact that there is nothing new under the sun and that everyone is trying to get arise out of everyone and keep their name relevant.

6.  AZEALIA BANKS YOU’RE STILL NOT RELEVANT?

mic.com

Speaking of relevance…In the mix tape “Shady CXVPHER” featuring Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf, Eminem basically says he will punch singer Lana Del Rey in the face like Ray Rice did his wife.  In business that’s not even hers, Banks responded on Twitter saying that he should go back to the trailer park where he belongs. First off and not defend what he said but, Eminem is known for being offensive and having inflammatory lyrics and secondly who asked you Miss Banks? First let’s work on your presence in the hip-hop world and stop making your name on the back of Iggy, Perez Hilton and anyone else you can beef with to get your name out there. #BLOOP.

5.  TOO SOON…TOO SOON…TOO SOON…

I know she’s been dead for a decade or so, but Lifetime and Wendy Williams Productions it was too soon to be doing a movie about the late singer, and doing it on the cable network was a simple slap to the face of her family and her fans who still very much so mourn her loss.  Many people on social network have been dogging the movie that premiered on Saturday for the lack of authenticity—mainly the “characters” had no resemblance to themselves, her sound being off, and the events and songs not matching up—and the fact that it looked so cheap. I think our PRINCESS OF R&B deserved better…IMHO!

4.  JUST AS RELEVANT AS AZEALIA BANKS…

rap-up.com

Even with the influx of the “star” power of Bow-Wow, sorry CHAD MOSS, 106 & PARK is limping off the air December 19, 2014. It will still be available in digital format for those who really care to see them introduce videos poorly and dumb down the black youth of America even more. In my case, the show hasn’t been the same since Free & A.J. were hosting. Well those were the good ol’ days. Long live a piece of my youth and what once was the iconic show Michelle from Destiny’s Child fell off the stage on.

3, 2, & 1. IF A NAKED KARDASHIAN FELL IN THE WOODS, WOULD WE CARE…NOPE!!!

dailymail.com

Kim Kardashian once again posed naked. This time it was in a black dress/garb/trashbag of a thing on the cover of PAPER MAGAZINE with the title: “BREAK THE INTERNET”. 16 million views later, and Mrs. West broke records for something that the world already saw and the reasoning why the clan is seen everywhere in the world. Not hating, which I usually do on the family of SLORES, but Mrs. West has a daughter to think of now. Many argue that PAMELA ANDERSON is in the same lane, but honestly Ms. Anderson had class and couth about hers. She realized the commodity factor of her nudity and didn’t exploit it in a cheap way.

What saddens me even more deeply is the history behind the shot which was borrowed heavily from French photographer Jean Paul Goude. He originally did this shot in the 70s with fame model and personality GRACE JONES. He was obsessed with black women and their bodies, mainly their posteriors or their asses, as they are known. This obsession goes back even further to the FREAK SHOW days, not just the show on FX, but back to the real freak show days when Hottentot, or a big assed black woman whose gluteus Maximus was exaggerated by nature and was poked and prodded by those who hadn’t seen a butt as big as her and was put on display egregiously.

Mrs. West, Kardashian or whatever you’re being called nowadays, please take the ending of your fifteen minutes with grace. Don’t go screaming into the night. We all know you have no discernable talent except for a great porn video and a curvaceous body. But at least give us the illusion that there is more to you than that. You and your family have saturated the media and the world with your antics for far far too long. You have your money. DO US A FAVOR AND JUST BOW OUT GRACEFULLY…

That’s all for this week…This has been a full wang kind of week.

As a girl who loves sports and hanging around with the fellas, this post is here to help the ladies find their sexy while still keeping it cool and sporty by styling your jersey exactly to fit your personality. Lets take a look at mine.

Untitled presentation (19)

  • Jersey: Womens’ Fanatics.com fitted Cam Newton special edition. 
  • Shoes: Nike Jordan Aqua 8’s
  • Jacket: Leather H&M Motorcycle Jacket 
  • Lipstick: MAC & Lourde collab (limited edition) in “Pure Heroine”
  • Shorts: Levi distressed black jean cutoff’s
  • Socks: American Apparel stripe thigh high socks in black/ white

To go along with this seasons mixed weather I paired short short’s with thigh high socks, comfortable shoes and the option of a leather jacket for warmth or for the cool of it. If you know me, you know I LOVE lipstick so, to suit me, I chose a purple vampy color to sustain the dark look and compliment the purple in the shoes. Plus, purple just goes great with Carolina blue.
