Now ya’ll know I love me some Alessia Cara! She my good Judy and if ya’ll remember I got the opportunity to meet her a while ago back when she was doing promo for her album. And she’s a sweet muffin! I got the pictures but I don’t feel like finding it. Anywho, MY GIRL won Best New Artist on Sunday at the Grammys and people were ALL UP AND THROUGH they feelings!
Mostly the people who are mesmerized by that SZA girl. Now don’t get me wrong, I heard a few of her songs but she don’t give me nothing I can feel. Just not my speed. So people were throwing shots and shade at Alessia and I guess she finally got fed up and posted the folloing! AND I FUCKING QUOTE!
-“to address the apparent backlash regarding winning something I had no control over: I didn’t log onto grammy.com and submit myself. that’s not how it works. I didn’t ask to be submitted either because there are other artists that deserve the acknowledgment. but I was nominated and won and I am not going to be upset about something I’ve wanted since I was a kid, not to mention have worked really hard for. I meant everything I said about everyone deserving the same shot. there is a big issue in the industry that perpetuates the idea that an artist’s talent and hard work should take a back seat to popularity and numbers.”
So the main argument was that she’s been in the industry and isn’t necessarily a “new artist.” WHICH I AGREE is a factual statement and actually is accurate. HOWEVER the criteria for the Grammy’s Best New Artist Award isn’t based on whether you started yesterday or last week, but for a new artist who releases, during the Eligibility Year, the first recording which establishes the public identity of that artist.” Note that this is not necessarily the first album released by an artist.
Now I didn’t see everybody screaming this nonsense LAST YEAR when our homie Chance the Rapper won the award. So with that fact alone I could close this post but I think I wanna continue with a few more receipts. SZA cannot be found on your local TOP 40 station! That’s just fact. She can however be found QUITE OFTEN on your urban radio stations. Alessia however can be found ON BOTH! Not to say SZA doesn’t deserve to be awarded because at this point a Grammy nom is just as good as actually winning. But Alessia deserved that award a little more.
Now I ain’t gone talk about this no more! But ya’ll better leave our girl Alessia alone. She don’t bother nobody. She just sing her little songs (and btw her album is REALLY GOOD) and go home to Canada. THATS IT! But if ya’ll wanna start some shit and kiki come on down in the comments and we’ll have a good ol kiki!

Ok I know we shouldn’t gloat in peoples misfortune but Tyga makes this a hard thing NOT to do! If I could keep a tab on all the times I done told ya’ll Tyga owe somebody I think I would have at least a smooth Mil! So the most recent one might land his ass in jail….which now that I think about it might be for the best! Any who lets get into the mess.
So sis was sued by a homegirl whose name isn’t that important for me to research but just know a light fixture fell on her damn head during one of Tyga’s show. (
GOOD LUCK BOOKING THAT STAGE YOU SPEAK OF) So homegirl sued him and his people and won a 236K lawsuit. See I imagine, if imma have ANYTHING fall on me at somebody show, Imma hope it’s somebody who gone pay up. Like this is why she should’ve went to a Beyoncé concert. Bet you Beyoncé would’ve came off the stage to bandage the wound herself, AND THEN break you off some extra coins just because but NOT TYGA!
So since he aint paid up yet, the amount has risen with interest to 250K approximately. So judge Maybeline issued a warrant for your arrest! And if I was him, I would just go head and turn myself in! It’s quite evident that you don’t have the coins or you would’ve just went and paid it! Between unpaid rent, car notes, and videos girls MONEY IS FUNNY! And WHY ARE YOU REALESING AN ALBUM ON BLACK PANTHER DAY! You know aint nobody gone buy it! We gone spend that money down to the movie theater!
Anywho hopefully Tyga figures this out. Maybe his ex can give….never mind I don’t think that’s a good idea. She trynna get ready for a whole baby! Anywho leave a comment sending well wishes to Tyga below and you know
I love you for reading
He has some pretty eyes…I never noticed until I seen this picture of him…but that’s neither here nor there! Ok I’m gone! X0
Now I know ya’ll already know my position on this entire situation but lemme just give yall the details on the story without my opinion sprinkled in until the very end!
So All week Kim has been giving us something we could feel via her IG account. Titties and hips for her book! OK! And on picture happened to catch the attention of the black community more than other.
This is just one of the many pictures Kim posted this week but Black Twitter and Black EVERYTHING was not having it! So because I’m not one pull the “appropriation” card, I did some research. Say hello to Bo Derrek!
Now no I don’t know who the hell she is besides an actress from the back back days. But I do know that she wore these braids back in her 1970s film 10. I know nothing more than that about this lady but that!
So people are outraged because Kim didn’t credit African cultures who have worn braids since the beginning of time. *
Ok so those are the facts of the situation so it’s opinion time. I find it funny how whenever Kim does ANYTHING the world stops to critique, and then we move on to the next thing! I had an open forum on my Facebook asking what the big deal about Kim and these braids was. Most people didn’t have a REAL answer besides “she stealing our culture and making it look cool and trendy but when we do it, its unprofessional or tacky!” Which is a legitimate argument.
But you know I always look at things from two perspective. What if she is bringing awareness to our culture? What if she didn’t know the correct term for these braids so she called them what she may be familiar with and that is “Bo Derrek” braids? I’m just not as easily offended as most I guess. And then I made the point, does this apply when black women wear weave from other countries such as India, Brazil and Malaysia?! I didn’t get a response on that one.
I close, I just want us to free our minds and the rest will follow. Be colored blind don’t be so shallow. I’d be flattered if I were a black woman that other cultures want to copy our black girl magic. But that’s if I was a woman. Let us know how you feel in the comments below and as always

Nessa: “Can you please call your brother so ya’ll can start moving this stuff out by tomorrow! I’m not trying to pay another months rent.”
Tae: “I already told you I got one of my boys coming to help me. My brother has to work tomorr-”
Nessa: “Wait a minute! I KNOW it bet the fuck not be Twan! Cause I don’t want that nigga back in my house! I don’t give a fuck if we is about to move out!”
Tae: “Man chill out on that. You know he always got me when I need him! Can’t say the same about yo family. Them niggas ain’t coming to help move shit huh!”
Nessa: “Well excuse my family for actually having careers and shit to do?! Care to say the same?”
Nessa: “Didn’t think so!”
Tae: “I just find it funny how you always trynna blow down on me and mine like we just ain’t shit out here!”
Nessa: “Well Tae if the shoe fits! I gotta get to work so BYE!”
I’m not even sure how we got here. I mean physically I know but emotionally how the fuck did we get to this place where we hate to even see each other coming! This ain’t even a relationship at this point. We just roommates with a past. Hopefully a new place will give us a new start, I mean I love Nes but this hate she got for me, we gotta fix that shit if we gone move forward. I ain’t the only one who got some secrets in our relationship!
I find it hard to believe that Twan is gone help him do ANYTHING but sit around and be a bum! I just don’t understand why he even hangs with lowlifes like him! All that wasted potential and now I gotta cart him around like I got a baby! I don’t even have kids so why I need a grown man on my hip waiting to be fed. Things is gone change though I know that cause I’m not doing this much longer!
“Apartment 218: Tae and Nessa” is an original story based on real people. This fictional stories main goal is to entertain, inspire and of course keep you laughing! I love you guys for reading and stay tuned for Chapter 1!
LISTEN!!!! One thing I never claimed to be is a movie critic! Cause quite frankly I don’t go to the movies enough but doing this Library gig has its perks right. So I got passes to screen GEOSTORM on Wednesday so I grabbed a friend and we went.
Now before I went, I watched the trailer and was instantly intrigued. Somebody conspiracy theory about this summers CRAZY hurricane weather has been intensified and thrown on the big screen!
The story line was actually good but for me the best part of the movie was watching nature completely and totally destroy the Earth. What had happened without telling you too much was to prevent natural disasters and dangerous weather, the government decided to build a satellite situation in space that’ll essentially stop any unprecedented situation from going down. The gag is, the shit went left and the Earth became Mother Nature’s personal punching bag!
There’s a whole other plot line involved but I’m not gonna give that away because I talk too much and I might spill the tea. There’s also a cute little love story involved too cause who doesn’t love a good love story right!
Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie and I absolutely think if you’re one of the following you will too. A nature freak who wants us to never use aerosol cans, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced that the government is nothing more than crooks, or like me a curious cat who lives for the drama!! GEOSTORM hits theaters TODAY!!! If you go watch, let us know what you thought about it!
I love you for reading!!!
OK so I’m still riding the “LWYMMD” wave! Sue me! “Ready for it” was an OK little bop for a second then I was over it. However Taylor just released a new song from her anticipated album REPUTATION called “Gorgeous”
I’ve been listening on repeat for the past maybe 20 minutes and I gotta say I like it more than “Ready For it.” Just when the girls thought this entire album was going to be about the KKK ruining her life. (Kanye, Kim and Katy)
We all have had that “somebody we can’t have” situation so yea I get it Taylor and I’m a little pissed about it but I’ll be fine OK!!! I’ll be putting the song on my Bopz playlist and if you guys wanna check it out on Spotify, its right HERE!!! Let us know what you think below!!!
I love you for reading!!!
Now listen! I’m not gloating in this woman’s downfall. But when you said, “YOU SAID WHAT YOU SAID” I assume you would think twice before you say what you say! So y’all girl Nene was the host of Tiffany Haddish comedy show in Oakland and I’m sure she was doing a fabulous job. However there was a wrench thrown in the game this night.
So there were hecklers doing what they do…. heckle! And Moose went LEFT! Verbatim I don’t remember what was said but know it was basically “I hope you get raped by your Uber driver” and something about a hello kitty! Now why the hell would you say that Nene!!!
So after the crowd did everything but grab their pitch forks and run her ass back to Atlanta, she just let Tiffany come out and that was it. Now as if Nene wasn’t in enough hot water since accusing Kim and her daughters of being racist now this!
A few days later, HEADLINE NENE COMEDY RUN OVER DUE TO RAPE COMMENTS!!! So then the next day WHAM NENE PULLED FROM THE GREAT XSCAPE TOUR!!! I was like DAMN!!! She loosing it ALL!!! Oh how I wish this would’ve been captured for this season of the RHOA! But the gag is, I wonder how this will affect her relationship with Kandi on the show?
Listen Nene and imma call you by ya name cause I got a little sympathy for you since I seen you on IG live crying. Listen, you can’t be going around talking slick as you wanna to people! Remember YOU’RE the celebrity! We ain’t gone care what the random nobody said to you, the headline will read only what YOU said. So with that in mind, you gotta choose those words wisely sis! Don’t cry over spilled milk, go get a bounty get the shit up and grab another cup!
One thing about Nene she’ll always find another way back into the spot light so she won’t be down for long.
