Chris Brown Discusses His Final Album "X"

 

 

Say it ain't so Chris! I just read on MSN Entertainment that he might be quitting his musical ventures to focus solely on his legal issues. He recently took to Twitter to brief his fans,

 

"Don't worry mainstream America. After this "X" album, it'll probably be my last album...Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18."

 

 

Word on the street is that Breezy reported to a jail in California on Monday to be booked. He could face up to four years behind bars if found guilty of the hit-and-run accident that he was involved in back in May of this year. Plus, his probation stemming from his assult on then girlfriend Rihanna was recently revoked. His next court date has been scheduled for August 15th.

 

 

 

Don't be too down Chris. Life is hella rough and those projected into the limelight by their own doing or from the actions of others are of no exception. Get on a good path and stick to it, so that memorable voice and astonishing dance moves will appear first in the mind of your fans as opposed to all of the court cases and bad behavior of years past.

Raven Symone Looks Forward to Getting Married!

 

 

 

So it had been rumored to be true, but today she disclosed and dispelled all doubt. Raven Symone tweeted today, "I can finally get married! yay government!" She even added, "So proud of you!" Symone most likely is referring to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act back in June.

 

 

 

Her love interest you ask? Az Marie, a former America's Next Top Model contestant. Necole Bitchie wrote a blog about the alleged couple back in May of 2012. When rumors arose about her sexual orientation, Raven stated via twitter,

"I'm living my PERSONAL life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I'm dating, and i shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life. However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I'm not harming anyone. i am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. kisses!"

Dreams...How do you know if yours is marketable?

 

So hey its me Ebony again.. How is life treating you? Yes you reading this blog. I feel like this is the beginning to every self help infomercial on the planet, in which they approach you in some sort of familiar way and then lure you in with an increadibly simple notion that everyone can relate to lol! Yeah this post may seem like that..at first. However, I will not be asking you to spend $Nothing.99 on any kind of get rich, get thin, scheme or apparatus. This post is solely about you helping you. 
 
Ok, lets go :-)
 
 

 

First of all how dare you acknowledge that your current position in life is not your ultimate position in this rat race of success, happiness and fulfillment that we are all so effortlessly wrapped up in. Bravo for admitting it to yourself. Now it is time to share it with the world...but how?

 

 

So of course you've got to start from point A and recognize if you even have a dream. And by dream, I mean a passion. A determined and focused drive, an ache to just simply do something that will either:

 

1. Put you in an occupational position that makes you the best you that you were born to be. 

2. Put you in a postion to make the quality of life of others incredibly better and worthwhile.

3. This idea is the most definitive way to enhance a current or budding hobby or talent that you have and get paid for it.

 

Lets start with one.

 

1. Put you in an occupational position that makes you the best you that you were born to be

 

So you think you're hot stuff huh? Ok, well you very well may be, but that won't mean jack squat if you don't know how to market yourself. You have to fully know yourself for this to work. I mean the strengths, weaknesses, and pros and cons of selling "you." And if you don't know yourself as well as you should, you can always pitch yourself to a manager or agent, and thus have them sell you better that you can do it yourself. If you've got your ideas in place already on how you plan on "makin it," then the time is now. Social Media is at an all time high for selling talent and merchandise across the globe. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr..are just some sites that can get the ball rolling. And less we forget YouTube! I mean stars are made off of this phenomenon. So if you are as good as you say you are, promote, promote, promote! At this rate, you are only a video or image "post" away from living the life you've always wanted.

 

2. Put you in a postion to make the quality of life of others incredibly better and worthwhile.

 

Maybe you're a giver. A true proponent of spending your time and efforts on others. There are those of us that receive more reward from seeing that bright beam of light in others than for themselves. If this applies to you, search out what types of endeavors you enjoy and see if there is anyway to reap benefits from that particular position. The kind of benefits that will keep the lights on. I mean come on, you love what you do, but you gotta live too lol!

 

3. This idea is the most definitive way to enhance a current or budding hobby or talent that you have and get paid for it.

 

I will put myself out there and be the example. I mean how can I expect my readers to be honest with themselves or others if I'm too much of a pansy to stare down that barrel of truth lol. My hobbies are writing: poetry and evidently blogging, makeup: thebeauteblueprint.com, and dancing my blues or stress away. Outside of my poetry being published, neither of the three aforementioned pass times have culminated in any lucrative ventures other than a good friend paying me for doing her makeup for a White House event. Score! Yes it was. I am not a professional makeup artist by no means, but I valued her respect for the work that I did. Do I think high enough of myself to try and pursue this or any of the other hobbies into a monetary making realm? I am not sure. And I have seriously been stuck in a limbo land of indifference for a good while now. A very aggravating way to live I must say. So in short, know what you enjoy doing. I mean really enjoy doing. Enjoy doing it to the point that even if you didn't get paid, this would just be that one or two things in life that keep a smile on your face. Then you have something to start with.

 

 

Alright that ends my lil "Go get 'em" pep talk. We all need those from time to time. Hopefully, I have either reminded you of something great about yourself, or I have sparked some sort of interest in something entirely new. Either way, the world will benefit from your talent. We're simply waiting on you to show us what it is.

The Real..Have You Seen It?

Now I am not an uber fan of daytime talk shows, mostly because I have a job and am unable to watch them, and also I haven't come across anything worthy of me DVR'ing lol! However, fortunately for me, there is YouTube and I watched the entire first episode of this new phenomenon called, The Real

 

 

After watching the first episode, I must say that it captured my full attention throughout the duration of the show. The only thing I found uninteresting was when The Game came out.Partly because I am not really a fan, but the interview was decent.

I did see a clip of when Kim Fields appeared on the show delivering some news about her pending bundle of joy!

 

How heartwarming right? So anyway, I think it may last at least one season, but we'll have to stay tuned. 

For now, enjoy the premiere episode and let me know your thoughts :-)

The Disrespect!

Don't you just love it when you come across someone who can verbally state something that you feel lol?! Well that is the moment I am sitting in right now. As you see by the title of this particular blog, I am referring to Disrespect.

 

This notion captured above is so simple its dumbfounding to most people. Treating others like you want to be treated shall forever echo through the halls of eternity, but unfortunately it will also somehow continue to be miscontrude. If you want people to wind up punching you in the face, talking about you horribly on the internet, or endlessly torturing you via pranks at school, the office or within your family then by all means continue to throw shade in the form of disrespectful actions, words, or what appear up front as circumstantial circumstances.

 

 

 

 

 

 

@MalibuDollface is known to give it like it is. I follow him on YouTube - DollFaceBarbieTV and he is hilariously accurate at times in his rants. I titled this blog post as such after watching the following video.

Enjoy :-)

Willow Smith's Summer Fling

 

Yes indeed, the heiress to the Smith Dynasty is back with another song. The 12 year old star, Willow Smith, has released the video, "Summer Fling," on the MelodicChaotic YouTube channel. Willow collaborated with producer an DJ MVSIC Fabrega to form duo Melodic Chaotic.

 

 

The video also features cameos of Willow's brother, Jaden Smith and actor Moises Arias.

 Smith launched her music career back in 2010 with the Billboard charting song, "Whip My Hair,' which peaked at number 11.

 

 

She had planned on starring in Will Smith and Jay Z's upcoming remake of, Annie, but declined the role, "to be a normal 12 year old."

 

Enjoy her latest muscial venture.

Talk about a Scandalous Marriage!

Hold up wait a minute!! Our girl, yes I am claiming her, has gone off and got herself "hitched!" Yes my fellow Scandal fans, the lovely, and stunningly talented Kerry Washington has gotten married. Who is this beau of hers you ask? None other than the corner back for the San Francisco 49ers - Nnamdi Asomugha. According to US Weekly, the nuptials took place late last month.

 

 

"It has been recorded in the Blaine County clerk's office that NNamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington have been married on the 24th of June in the town of Hailey, idaho." the clerk's office told US in a statement.

 

Reports say that the now newlyweds have been dating since 2012. The couple got together after Washington split from actor David Moscow in 2007.

 

 

"Turning 30 was a time when I thought, 'Wait a second. How much of my life really reflects who I am and who I want to be?'" the Vanity Fair cover girl told The New York Post after their breakup. "I've learned more about myself since leaving that relationship."

 

"Coming out of an engagement, I don't even try to guess what my life is going to look like in the future anymore," she said at the time, noting that wedding planning was "hard" for her. "The important thing is to not be afraid of making decisions that are right for me. It's my life. Not anybody else's."

 

 

 

Washington is currently on hiatus from filming her hit ABC series. Prior to leaving for vacation, she tweeted: "Ok. Logging off! See u in a few weeks!"

Cunnilingus Causes Cancer?

Not sure if you're up on your sexually transmitted disease lingo , but HPV is the acronym for human papilloma virus. This virus is known to cause genital warts and cervical cancer. Most recently, HPV has shown evidence that indicates an increase in anal and oral cancers as well.

 

Now fast track to this well known actor: Michael Douglas. In an recent interview, "Michael Douglas: Oral Sex Caused My Cancer, " he appeared to say that he blamed HPV, which can also be transmitted via oral sex, for the diagnosis for his specific type of cancer. The rep for Douglas, Allen Burry, claims that Michael said, in fact, that his type of cancer, can be spread through oral sex with a person infected with HPV. Read more.

 

"He did not say cunnilingus was the cause of his cancer, " Burry said. "he didn't specifically name a cause."

 

 

If you've liked my facebook page - thebeauteblueprint - then you already know my woes about having to recant, retract or re -whatever a previously posted story lol. Remember the news going around about Beyonce being pregnant for the 2nd time around? Sites were popping up talking about how she was bringing out 2 cribs on stage during her tour. Everyone was speculating, but no one from her camp actually confirmed. E! News even ran a story claiming to have the details, and they were even wrong. It jus goes to show, that any and everything can be misread or misconstrude.

 

Be careful what you call news..

Macy*s, MAC & Mother's Day

Sunday, May 12th marked a monumental holiday for women across the globe and the friends, family and children that adore and cherish these wonderfully extraordinary women that hold this crown - Mother's Day.

 

My lovely son and remarkable husband took me on a nice shopping spree to Macy*s in Washington, D.C. I had a great time, not simply because of the purchased goods, but rather the time spent with my two leading men is what provided the much needed joy.

We didn't go out to eat, as I am sure many of you all did, but the simplicity of the stroll around downtown, and seeing yet another day through my 2 and half year old son's eyes was priceless.

 

To commemorate the loot that was purchased, I of course recorded a haul video. Like and share away :-)

Janet is no longer Ms. Jackson!!

 
Janet Jackson confirmed Monday she married Qatari billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana last year.
Rumored to have had an over the top wedding, Janet settled the qualms about her big day.
 

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year, we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremny," the couple said in an exclusive statement t TV's "Entertainment Tonight."

 

 

 

 

When speaking of gifts the couple gave to one another Janet mentioned,

 

"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children's charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy."

No other details about the ceremony, such as where and when it took place, were immediately reported.

 

 
 
So who is the beautiful man that has stolen Janets heart? 3rd time's the charm is what they say, so hopefully this union will last beyond the turn of the new year.
 
Molly Chance writes,
 
When the news broke of Janet Jackson's secret marriage to billionaire Wissam Al Mana, the first question on your mind may have been "Who is Wissam Al Mana?" For a wealthy fashion tycoon in a relationship with one of the world's biggest super stars, Wissam keeps a pretty low profile.

Running the family business with his two brothers, Wissam has built a luxury empire in the middle east. Al Mana Retail represents such high end brands as Giorgio Armani, Hermes, Balenciaga, and Roberto Cavalli. Al Mana also owns stakes in the Saks Fitfh Avenue stores in Dubai, Bahrain, and Kuwait, and is opening the flagship A/X Exchange in a Qatar shopping mall. Wissam's net worth is estimated at $1 billion.

Wissam, who at 37-years-old is nine years Janet's junior, once told Harper's Bazaar Arabia he grew up in London and got a job in retail at the age of 14. The rest was history.

In November 2011, Al Mana had this to say to VMAN magazine about his special lady: "I don't date Janet Jackson. She is my girlfriend; there is a difference. She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me." Talk about Prince Charming.

What's even more likable about this guy? His late father is his role model.  "My father was a very humble and down to earth man, and was known for being very honest and trustworthy," Wissam told Bazaar Arabia. "He taught us many great values such as to treat our employees with dignity and respect."

He also shared with the mag about his dream woman, who just so happens to be Jackson. "I think a man's dream woman changes as he goes through different stages in his life. I'm fortunate to be dating my dream woman now," says Al Mana.

Lil Wayne Vs. Emmett Till

Given the fact that it is Black History Month, I am pretty sure many of us who know the story of Emmett TIll are none too pleased with the disrespectul interpretation of his battery portrayed and compared to a rough housing episode of love making by Lil Wayne. 

 

 


On a remix to Future's song "Karate Chop," Lil Wayne compared a rough sex act to the tortuous death of 14-year-old Till in Mississippi, an incident that ultimately helped change the national conversation on race. Following a crude reference to rough sex, Lil Wayne indicates that he wanted to do as much damage as had been done to Till. -- Associated Press

 

 

Stevie Wonder, a close friend and fellow admirer of Wayne, said that  the rapper's disturbing verse should not have made it beyond the recording studio for the world to hear.

"You can't equate that to Emmett Till," Wonder said. "You just cannot do that. ... I think you got to have someone around you that -- even if they are the same age or older -- is wiser to say, 'Yo, that's not happening. Don't do that.'"

 

Till's family has asked the rapper for an apology, and Epic Records, Future's label, said the official song will not feature the vulgar words and is employing "great efforts" to pull it down.

 

 

If you are not aware of this historic story, Emmett Louis Till was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman.

 

WARNING: DISTURBING IMAGES BELOW

Biography.com recounts the occurrence:

 

 

 


Three days after arriving in Money, Mississippi, on August 24, 1955, Emmett Till and a group of teenagers entered Bryant's Grocery and Meat Market to buy refreshments after a long day picking cotton in the hot afternoon sun. What exactly transpired inside the grocery store that afternoon will never be known. Till purchased bubble gum, and some of the kids with him would later report that he either whistled at, flirted with, or touched the hand of the store's white female clerk—and wife of the owner—Carolyn Bryant.

Four days later, at approximately 2:30 in the morning on August 28, 1955, Roy Bryant, Carolyn's husband, and his half brother J.W. Milam kidnapped Till from Moses Wright's home. They then beat the teenager brutally, dragged him to the bank of the Tallahatchie River, shot him in the head, tied him with barbed wire to a large metal fan and shoved his mutilated body into the water. Moses Wright reported Till's disappearance to the local authorities, and three days later his corpse was pulled out of the river. Till's face was mutilated beyond recognition, and Wright only managed to positively identify him by the ring on his finger, engraved with his father's initials, L.T.

Till's body was shipped to Chicago , where his mother opted to have an open-casket funeral with Till's body on display for five days. Thousands of people came to the Roberts Temple Church of God to see the evidence of this brutal hate crime. Till's mother said that, despite the enormous pain it caused her to see her son's dead body on display, she opted for an open-casket funeral to "let the world see what has happened, because there is no way I could describe this. And I needed somebody to help me tell what it was like."

Although she never stopped feeling the pain from her son's death, Mamie Till (who died of heart failure in 2003) also recognized that what happened to Emmett Till helped open Americans' eyes to the racial hatred plaguing their country, and in doing so helped spark a massive protest movement for racial equality and justice. Before Till's murder, she said, "people really didn't know that things this horrible could take place. And the fact that it happened to a child, that make all the difference in the world."

 

 
Albeit a little less than 60 years later, these images still stir something within me. For the most part sadness. We have come a long way in our society in how all races are treated, but we still have a ways to go. As for Lil Wayne and his lyrical antics. Understanding, compassion and just plain ol' common sense should have negated anything resembling a story of this nature. I am aware of the "Freedom of Speech" and all that, but ..really? Hopefully he learns his lesson.

Beyonce Covers Vogue and Blue Ivy

 

Beyonce is never the latest "It" girl, but rather she is always the "It" girl. She opens up in this latest March 2013 cover story about Blue Ivy, Jay-Z, motherhood and the possibility of retirement.

 

Speaking of Blue..

On Blue she mentions that,  "She's my road dog, my homey, my best friend"

 

Siblings for Blue?

 

When asked were there more little ones to expect from the couple, her response was,

"When I was younger, there were moments where I said, "I'm not going to have children.' And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don't know when." 

 

"At some point, it's very importatnt to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do."

 

She discusses labor and how having Blue has changed her.

 

 

"I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn't become any more until I saw the baby. ...But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn't think about my own pain. ... We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication."

 

"Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body. I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame."

 

 

 

 

Her relationship with Jay-Z

 

Publicly, not too much has been reveled from either Bey or Mr. Shawn Carter about their relationship. She inputs that,

"Just knowing someone's always going to be honest and tell the truth...[who] can understand exactly what I'm going through -- and I can understanf exactly what he's going through."

 

 

Growing older & reirement..

So what can we expect in the future for Mrs. Carter outside of the tour that will soon be hitting Europe and North America? She is in her prime and the sky is definitely the limit as they say. Her conclusion in reference to getting older was simply,

 

"I don't feel like I have to please anyone. I feel free. I feel like I'm an adult. I'm grown. I can do what I want. I can say what I want. I can retire if I want. That's why I've worked so hard."

 

 

We hear you loud and clear Bey. Keep up the phenomenal work.

Would You Stay with Rihanna?

 

Speechless....

 

No I am not referencing how stunning she looked in the dress at last Sunday's Grammy Awards, but rather this latest video titled simply - Stay.

 

I suppose I really can't be too speechless given the fact that I am blogging right now, but I guess the word could hold some merit due to the fact that I am not actually speaking..but semantics aside lol..this video was very captivating.

 

 

 

Not knowing the inner workings of the artists mind, I am unaware if the lyrical content portrayed in this song is an ode to new and old beau Chris Brown, but the drama displayed in her sullen and longful behavior just makes you wonder how powerful the actual events were for a person to put pen to paper and write this song.

 

 

So opposed to rambling on (cause you know I gots words fa days lol!) I'll let you decide.

Don't Facebook Your Problems, Face Them!

 

 

Evidently there is a pandemic across the globe about what I am going to refer to as the Facebook Phenomenon. I have noticed that many individuals seem to find facebook as a haven for refuge. Facebook is no longer simply a social media outlet, but it is a dumping ground of all sorts of issues. Happiness, anger, sloth, woe, joy, misery..any emotion or behavior that can be mustered up and also explained. Facebook and Twitter are the new psycho-social means of delivery. 

Gone are the days where if you had a problem, your quickest mode of operation was to call up one of your girlfriends and dish about it for hours on end. Or maybe something miraculous occurred and you were bursting at the seams to share it with another, that piece of information that was too valuable to waste on the telephone was turned into a drive to the best friends house to ensure that the delivery of the message was heard and understood properly! These descriptions remind me of how I was in high school.

To be clear, I am not blaming or shunning people for displaying their innermost ongoings to everyone with a username, because I have done so on so many occasions. I only chose to discontinue this behavior this last June. My reason stemmed from jealousy and envy. Yes I admit this. Here's a link to me talkin about my issues:

Envy, An Age Old Enemy!

So since then, if and when I post things on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr, I try to keep things neutral or inspirational. Although misery loves company and people like to hear if you're going through the same things they are going through and possibly hear your suggestions on how to tackle the situation, no one wants to consistently see or hear you whining and complaining about your life all the time. A negative Nancy is not a good look lol!

With all of this said, I want you to take a look at your posts on social media this past week. Have you divulged too much negative press about yourself? Have you spent too much time on the pessimistic end of the spectrum or are you one of those happy go lucky individuals?

Feel free to share via comments :-)

Just like Whitney, Beyonce Lip Synced

 

 

Now personally, I am not all outraged as some regarding the possibility of Beyonce lip syncing her vocals when she sang the national anthem yesterday morning at the 2nd Inauguration for President Barack Obama. She sang that song from the heart, whether it was pre-recorded or not. At this stage in the game, we all know that this woman has enough pipes to kill any song. So really..what's the big deal. 

 

Some say she was resting her vocals for her upcoming performance at the Super Bowl that is slated for February 3rd, 2013. The associated press stated this according to the U.S. Marine Band:

"A band spokeswoman told news outlets Tuesday that the band was notified at the last minute before the performance that Beyonce would use a pre-recorded voice track. Band members played their instruments live with no intonation problems in the chilly conditions ahead of the national anthem, the spokeswoman said." "All inaugural music is pre-recorded in case weather conditions or other circumstances could interrupt the program.  A representative for Beyonce did not immediately respond to requests for comment." Read more  here.

So as the saying goes, "the band played on," no one knows what goes on in an artists mind and what would make them change their mind at the 9th inning. Its so many variables to consider. The article went on to suggest that, "even in good conditions, producing good sound can be a challenge in a large open space."

One fine fact that I learned was that if you want to waste time doggin' out Beyonce for her lack of a live performance, then by comparison you need to criticize the vocalist that everyone is compared to when they sing that historical song. Whitney Houston's memorable performance of the national anthem in 1991 at the Super Bowl was sung to a track.

 

Now I don't know about you, but uh..that comparison aint all bad to me lol!

How Well are you Keeping Him?

 

I don't know too many ladies that aren't just at the very least "pleased" when they come across a "well kept" man. That distinguished and polished look goes a long way before words are ever spoken. It doesn't necessarily have to mean that the brotha is wearing a suit and tie and giving off that white collar office vibe, because we have all seen and fawned over the steamy blue collar construction guy that we pass along the sidewalk as he effortlessly pounds that concrete pavement into oblivion... 

 

 

Oooh lawd! I just had a harlequin novel moment! Back to our regularly scheduled blog..

Now he doesn't have to just emit all kinds of super sexiness at first sight. He can be casual and comfortable and still give off that well groomed vibe. Pharell shows this off very well.

 

So the question that is posed to you ladies is this? How well are you keeping him? And by him this could be any man in your life. Well at least the men that you have some sort of say in regards to fashion choices (boyfriend, husband, son). Are you helping to maintain the "look" so to speak? I imagine that every woman would like her counterpart to be well kept but this takes time and effort. Not to mention a willingness to partcipate by that significant other or child.

 

 

So if you are doing your duty in the fashion department and showing off the best features of your mate - Bravo! First impressions go far in the fashion world and also everyday. Being well groomed is not a way of life but also a state of mind. It immediately sends a message to others on how you feel about yourself. The care and concern one holds in regards to themselves and appearance is a key component. It's at the very least polite. None of your coworkers want to peer over their respective cubicle and see you looking all disheveled and unkempt. So do us a favor and use that comb and brush, oh and the lint roller does wonders as well lol!

Now for those of you that did not receive the memo that was written on company letterhead in regards to the importance of appropriate apparel, then you need to catch up. Discover the root of your fashion-less-ness lol! Why aren't you keeping your man? Why wouldn't you want him to look good? is this an insecurity in you that is being displayed by keeping him in a mediocre fashion so that others may not flirt with him or her? Do you feel that the better they begin to look, does that somehow diminish your looks, or self worth for that matter? There are million different reasons on why this occurrence takes place. Which one is yours?

The Great Gatsby to be Scored by Jay-Z!

 

Now I am not about to front and act like I can competely acknowledge the monumental significance that the title of this latest post suggests lol! I recall reading this when I was a young lass, but memory fades with time and I had to brush up on my history by using the 21st century's version of cliffnotes - Wikipedia!

So lets get a brief intro on what critics say the hoopla is all about:

 

The Great Gatsby is a novel by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story takes place in 1922, during the Roaring Twenties, the post-World War I (WWI) prosperous time in the United States. Described as the "ironic tale of life on Long Island at a time when gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,"[1] it received critical acclaim.

 

Ok..yeah, that really didn't tell me anything either, but rather than copy and pate the whole plot for you lazy readers lol, you can just scroll back on up and click that Wickipedia link and read for yourself.

 

Back to the blog, the incomperable, Jay Z is slated to score this iconic picture and it has not only the director, Baz Luhrmann excited but cast members as well:

 

 

Cast members also leaked in April that director Baz Luhrmann played Jay-Z music on the set of "The Great Gatsby." "On my first day he had Jay-Z pumped up full, and we did the entire scene with, you know, Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting, and it was just so liberating," Isla Fischer told MTV.

 

 

A soundtrack is one thing, but to score a movie, that's big business. Bravo Jay.

Here are a few stills from the movie, scheduled to hit theaters May 10, 2013.

Happy New Year! KimYe are Expecting!!

 
It is official! The two fashion forward, celebrity IT couple are expecting a bambino! The reality show star herself spoke about it on her website:
"It's true!! Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us. Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! XO"
I am soo happy for the both of them. And also pleased that I even learned about this breaking news from my girl Kia.
For more news on this headliner visit: USA Today or Huffpost Celebrity.
 
The news broke out unexpectedly according to Kim.
Huffington Post captured it:

 

On Sunday night at Atlantic City's Revel Resort Ovation Hall, West announced that Kardashian is pregnant to a packed crowd of more than 5,000 fans. His reality-star girlfriend was also in the audience.The rapper paused in the middle of his set to reveal the big news. "Stop the music for a second. Stop the music," he said. "Can we make some noise for my baby mama right quick?" The crowd erupted in wild cheers, and the news quickly went viral.

He asked concertgoers to congratulate his baby mama, according to the Associated Press, adding that this was "most amazing thing.”

 

 


She and the 35-year-old "Clique" rapper had not discussed announcing the news and were reportedly going to wait until she started showing, TMZ notes. Kardashian's best friend and her mom, as well as several members of West's family were also at the show.

After West revealed the news, the Kardashian clan also confirmed the reality star is expecting her first child with the Chicago-born rapper, whom she has been dating since the spring. "Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!!! LOVE is everything!!!!" tweeted Khloe Kardashian.

 

 

Well as we can see, Kanye is already a proud papa. As he should be. The word about town is that she is 12 weeks.
As many of you, I will be sure to stay tuned on the news and of course the ever so precious "baby bump pics."
 
Thanks again Kia xoxo!

Another Lawsuit for Ne-Yo

Unfortunately this post won't be a rave review on Ne-Yo's strinkingly handsome face, nor his melodic tone of voice. This young entertainer is being yet again put on blast by his ex-girlfriend who falsely allowed Ne-Yo to believe that he was the father of her son. She is now, after the airing of Ne-Yo's Behind The Music, claiming defamation of character.  TMZ reports how it all went down:

 

 

It's a pretty complicated story ... Ne-Yo used to have a relationship with a woman named Jesseca White. During their time together, Jesseca had a baby which Ne-Yo thought was his ... turns out, it wasn't. 


The couple reached a settlement agreement in 2009 in which Ne-Yo coughed up $575,000 to Jesseca, who in turn officially said the kid wasn't his. Ne-Yo was originally listed on the birth certificate as the father, but his name was later removed.

As part of the deal, both sides agreed to a confidentiality clause, promising to never go public with the info. Fast forward to September 2012 ... Ne-Yo did an interview with VH1's "Behind the Music" and spilled the beans on the whole sordid ordeal.

Now, Gloria Allred has fired off a letter to Ne-Yo accusing him of breaking the agreement. Allred claims that because Ne-Yo falsely painted Jesseca as a harlot who lied, broke his heart and then vanished ... Jesseca has been defamed, ridiculed and harassed.

According to the letter, Jesseca has been unable to work, was forced to file for state aid, suffers from mental anguish and is "beset by nausea, vomiting and hair loss" thanks to Ne-Yo's remarks. 

Jesseca is asking Ne-Yo to settle the matter amicably out of court (cough, cough $$$$) ... otherwise she'll be forced to pursue more serious legal options.

 

Seems like the good guys just can't come out on top..

 

However there is also word on the street to counteract this whole situation. Sources say that NeYo new about his lack of parentage the entire time. Millionaire songwriter/producer Damon Thomas (Kim Kardashian's first ex-husband - yes she's been married twice. Keep up people!) is the lil boy, who is named after Ne-Yo (For those of you playing the home game Ne-Yo's real name is Chimere). Its been suggested that he knew all about this while Jessica was pregnant. 

 

 

 

 

Well one thing is always for certain. There are 3 sides to a story. His side, her side and what the media allows us to believe!..Oh my bad..you were expecting me to say the truth lol! Who believes the truth anymore? Sadly, its all about what you can prove these days.

 

Till next time...

Jesus Over Jealousy!

 

Overcome Jealousy

What causes jealousy? Why does it start and how do we overcome jealousy?

Common Causes of Jealousy:

  • Unmet expectations. Many times we place unrealistic expectations on ourselves and the people around us. Often times we feel things should come easier and faster to us. Then if things don’t happen when we think they should, we inevitably run into someone who already has what we want. All of a sudden, we feel this surge of ugly, green emotion called jealousy.
  • A sense of entitlement. For some reason we have this ingrained attitude that we are entitled to things. Kids leaving the nest for the first time believe their own standard of living should be the same as their parents. They don’t consider that their parents have worked for years and years. Many times people with financial problems feel “entitled” to buy things on credit, even though they know it’s a bad idea. Having the nicest car and the newest toys seems more important than getting out of debt.
  • Insecurity. It is so easy to look at other people and wish we had what they have. And so many times it doesn’t stop there. We start berating ourselves for not having what they have. Then we begin to believe negative junk ourselves. The next thing we know, we’ve developed insecurities in our relationships.

Cure for Jealousy?

So what can we do about jealousy?

After reading about all the stuff that can cause feelings of jealousy, we may feel like we’re doomed. We may think we’ll always come up short in some area of life. But that surely isn’t the case.

Overcoming Jealousy

Here’s some good news! There are a few things we can do to stop the jealousy ball from rolling right over us.

How to Overcome Jealousy:

  • Stop comparing yourself to other people. You were created as a very unique and special person. God had a plan for you long before you took your first breath. Relish that thought. Love the fact that you’re special. What God has in mind for you isn’t the same as for someone else. So you don’t have to feel bad that you don’t have all the qualities, features, money, or anything else that someone else has. Your journey is just that —yours.
  • Stop worrying about you all the time. Find a way to be a blessing to someone else. When you change your focus away from yourself, all of a sudden your self-image improves. You get to experience the feeling of satisfaction that only comes when you’re a blessing to someone else. Your priorities start changing, and one day you realize that the things that used to make you so jealous and so nuts, don’t bother you so much anymore.
  • Stop wanting what other people have if you’re not willing to go through what they did to get it. When you see a person who is physically fit and looks positively great, it’s easy to feel really jealous. But are you willing to work out every day? Are you willing to eat healthy and look for ways to be healthy? If you’re not, then there really is no reason to feel jealous, is there?
  • Start focusing on all that’s positive in your life.God has given you so many wonderful gifts that many other people don’t have. Focus on using those gifts to help someone else. Since your mind can only consciously think about one thing at a time, doesn’t it make sense to make sure that “one thing” is positive and is moving you toward the really great things in life? Resolution Breaking free from jealousy starts with your thoughts. When you change the way you think, you change the way you feel and act. The easiest way to change your focus is to begin by helping others. It will definitely be time well spent. Or better yet, thoughts well spent.

Marsha's Comin' Out Party! F*ck N Get It Over With!

Steamy and always sultry songstress Marsha Ambrosius is givin us everything in her latest video: F*ck N Get It Over With. The latest venture from her second solo project Friends & Lovers, is a look inside her freakier nature.

Given the fact that the video debut was on National Coming Out Day, there was much speculation on if the artist was foretelling a little more than a mere song to the musical lovers at heart. To which she stated on her facebook in regards to the "Lesbian Speculation,"

  • Double standards! Any male artist can openly brag about how many groupies he gets! Can u imagine how many men AND women have come on to me??? Listen to my music! I tell it! Always! I am not a lesbian! I am straight! I will never say I haven’t fantasized or had sexually explicit dreams about women before! That would make me liar! I’ve been called a lesbian since I got into the entertainment business! You’re no one till someone calls you gay lol I’m so comfortable with myself, I’m not afraid to tell the story from all perspectives! I’ve done so from the very beginning! Ppl hear what they want to hear! I make you listen to what I feel!

Bieber Fans Never Say Never

 

Well hello again my beaute's! I am fully aware that my last post was regarding young hollywood's hottie, Jaden Smith, but I came across a video/interview of Justin Bieber that I just had to share. I've been on a musical rant lately so this just fits right in.

We are well aware of the immense Bieber Fever that has swept the nation since young Justin hit the scene not too long ago, but just in case most of you thought his talent ended at crooning those R&B and Pop songs, take a listen to this:

 

How old is this, one might ask. This interview was with Big Boi back in November of 2011.

Again I say...what will the future hold for Justin and Jaden?

Never say never..

Jaden Smith's Lyrical Swag

Ok, let me just say.. Where is the adorable little boy that played in The Pursuit of Happyness? This young man right here is challenging grown men twice his age in the sexy department! A cougar, I am not, but I am also not blind! He is headed for a world of trouble with those looks and from what we can see so far, his handsome-ness has yet to reach its peak.

 

Now before I go ahead and rave endlessly about the boy's good looks, lets switch over to talent. Yes, we have seen the boy act, and we are fully aware of the powerhouse lineage this descendant hails from, so it's only fair that he would embrace the musical talent that is pulsing in his DNA. Below are a couple videos showcasing his rap prowess. I am impressed to say the least, and am also anxious to see how far this young prodigy will excel. 

First up: Give It To 'Em

 

 

Well... what did ya think? Yeah I was shocked too. Here is the latest release.. The Coolest.

Chris Brown VS. Haley Buckner

Well look who has another tattoo!? It’s none other than Chris Breezy.  

 

Of course the speculation is that it's a mirrored image of the portrait that Chris’ ex-girlfriend Rihanna uploaded after their tumultuous and infamous fight.

 

 

However that is far from the case. MSN’s Wonderwall said this about the tattooed image:

 

"The high cheekbones, the full-lipped pout, the big, almond-shaped eyes … While the new ink of a female face on Chris Brown's neck is hardly a mirror image of his ex, Rihanna, TMZ questioned whether there was a resemblance. Chris' rep, however, assures Wonderwall there's no correlation. "His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw," his rep says of the design, inked by artist Peter Koskela. "It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."

 

 

Take note that the description makes sure to report who inked the tattoo and it does not state where the actual image came from. This topic of discussion has been on The View and on Wendy Williams and the artist has yet to be identified or for that matter given proper credit.

 

The artist is Haley Buckner, or misshaleyk on instagram. I was alerted to the author of the image by a friend of mine on instagram: pala_foxxia. She posted a pic of Haley with the following description below it:

 

 

"pala_foxxia Meet the real inspiration behinD CHRIS BROWNS tattoo .... Its not rihanna its ✨@misshaleyk@misshaleyk âœ¨âœ¨ facechart that inspired his tattoo! Please Spread the word... Every artists should be given credit for their work!! #givecreditwhereitsdue #facechart"

 

 

Of course like others that happen to follow @pala_foxxia, I quickly went to @misshaleyk’s page to see the face behind the tattoo. She of course has multiple images of this scandal on her page which showcase her artwork and how its not being portrayed that she is the artist that sculpted the face chart.

 

 

 

 

 

She even posts an email written by Chris Brown’s tattoo artist, Peter Koskela, mentioning to her his "reinterpretation of the picture as not to plagiarize her art" and how he was unaware that she was the one who created the look.

 

 

 

I hope that she gets some notoriety out of all this, because she is a phenomenal MAC artist. If folks insist on harping about who has the latest ink on their body parts at least let the true author shine. Maybe integrity is dead and I'm living in a dream world, but I'd rather be over here any day.

Jean Paul Gaultier - Dark Fall Fashion in Paris!

 

 

Having never set foot in Bryan Park when there was a fashion show occurring, let alone traveld the globe to see haute couture at its finest, I am always pleased to see the latest fabric makers and trend setters on YouTube. I was less than 2 minutes in on the latest fashion show from Jean-Paul Gaultier when I felt the need to blog.

Let's talk Black! I mean serious black! Darker than MAC's carbon eyeshadow these clothes look decadently sheek in a Tim Burton movie kinda way. I mean the first model alone mirrored Johnny Depp's character in Alice in Wonderland and I was all for it. With the lights low, the mood bleek and the red hues illuminating the rear of the catwalk, I was already sucked into the show. I couldn't get my microwave to finish my popcorn fast enough!

 

 

I'm talking pale faces, contoured cheekbones to the point that they look impaccably chiseled, and bold red lips! All of this to let that black do what it does best..stand out and effortlessly captivate the audiences attention. They were at least 15 models in, until color entered the scene. Gold!

 

 

 

One subtle piece of jewelry that adorned the neck of a poised lady in all black, and draped down her back which was romantically left open by the way, was forshadowing of the transitions to come. The models that followed soon began to show  mixtures of gold and black, deep taupe, camel paired with dark silver and then..bam..wait for it.. Purple! 

 

 

 

 

 

Enough of my rambling interpretation and commentary..enjoy the fashion for yourself.

Primer, Foundation & BB Creams..Oh my!

The summer trended with lots of beauty phenomenons. Maybe they really weren't a "new" thing, but to a makeup "newcomer" like myself I thought it was all novel ideas lol! First off let's talk primer. Now silly old me thought primers were just to make those  expensive eyeshadows like -MAC- or maybe frugal but pigmented -BH Cosmetics- pop! However, news to me, primers are also for the face. The one that caught my eye, with a little help from a youtuber, was the Skin Perfecting Primer by Murad.

 

I have oily skin, and I'll have an acne flare up from time to time, especially when the Red Storm hits! {TMI yes, but you ladies know what I'm talkin' 'bout} So the addition of acne and shine control, I was all set to purchase. After using this product over the course of the summer months, I realized that I had severly been missing out. My mid afternoon gloss on my face due to all my oiliness was no longer apparent on my skin. I've read some other negative reviews of this product, but I can only speak for myself. My problem was solved. I talk about this product more on one of my haul videos. See below.

 

So next up is foundation. In the same video that was just mentioned I talked about using MAC's Studio Fix Fluid in number #NC50. I just recently ran out of that particular brand. I decided around a month or two ago, that I would give another logo a shot to hang around my vanity table. That company was Make Up For Ever. I chose the HD in number #175.

 

 

Bbeautymarkd discusses this foundation in her foundation tutorial below.

 

Last but not least...BB Creams. I haven't divulged into this particular scope of the beauty arena yet. Why might you ask? The hell if I know. A sista is just slippin is all I can say. I've seen BB Creams by Smashbox, Too Faced, MAC, Maybelline..and so on. According to wikipedia, don't ya ust love that site lol, BB can stand for beauty balm, blemish balm or blemish base. Here are some images of a few I've come across.

 

 

 

 

 

So if any of you have some rave reviews about BB creams, be sure to leave me a comment, becuase I would love to get the inside scoop on the pros and cons.
 
Till next time..

Happy Birthday Penelope Scotland Disick!

 

Kourtney Kardashiand and Scott Disick welcomed a new baby girl on Sunday, July 8th. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces. Penelope is the second child the two share, making Mason, 2, an older brother.

Kourtney told E! News. "Scott and I are overjoyed to welcome our precious angel Penelope Scotland Disick into our lives. We are forever blessed. Mommy and baby are resting comfortably.

 

 

Before Mason first stepped on the scene, Kourtney stated that she was going to break away from the family's K-name "kurse." 

The Daily News reports that that while Kourtney and Scott thought of the name Penelope, Kris Jenner was the one who came up with the little girl's middle moniker. Jenner suggested that the unique name was a creative way to honor the baby's father.

 

Kim hit the airwaves barely controlling her excitement Sunday night when she took to her blog to update fans on the familly's new female addition. "Welcome to the world Penelope Scotland Disick! The whole family is so thrilled to finally meet her. She is absolutely perfect! I am so excited to be an aunt again and can't wait ti spoil the little Penelope. i know Mason is going to be the best big brother in the whole world."

 

Khloe had her moment as well on her blog: "As I'm sure you all know, my beautiful big sister gave birth yesterday to the most perfect baby girl you've EVER seen. The entire family is literally exploding with joy and have not stopped fawning over our new little girl. And Mason is already loving being a big brother! This is just a special and happy time for my family."

New Nuptials for Chad & Evelyn!

 

From Basketbal Ex-Girlfriend to Football Wife, I wonder how the transition felt last Wednesday, July 4th for Evelyn Lozada. As if the Independence Holiday wasn't enough, the weather played a dramatic role in the days festivities. Eve said it best on twitter last Thursday:

 

This is Mrs. Johnson, not Chad for the first time in a few days... There was a REAL earthquake, thunderstorms, then a wedding.

 

And speaking of twitter, never has the social media played such a pivotal role in a couple's nuptials than it did last week. Check out Chad's thoughts throughout the day.

And of course it continues after the ceremony:

 

So enough of the bird talk, lets get down to the beaute of it all. Peruse over the lovely pics of Evelyn that she posed for in Essence.

 

 

 

Now weren't those lovely! Ok so lets get back to the social media.. Take a look at the new profile pics/avatars that each of them have up now. Super cute!

Here is Chad's.

 

And now Evelyn..

 

Now with all of this bliss, I don't want any talk about if they can last past the Kardashian record. No bets in the locker rooms, or water cooler talk lol..

The New Crayola Craze!

 

 

OMG!!! Are you feeling as nostalgic as I am right now? I am in love with this new spring and summer nail trend. I can vividly remember playing for hours on the floor with my 8, 16, 24 or 64 pack of Crayola crayons and markers! I literally just dazed at the pictures for like 2 minutes in rememberance of my childhood fancy lol! Ok, back to the blog..focus Ebony. Anyhoo, yes Crayola has created a mini nail polish line and they're even scented with flavors like green apple and blueberry.

 

 

You can find these adorbale shimmery, scented polishes at your local Wal-Mart and Rite-Aid. I've read some reviews and it seems that the overall take on them is that they are a little watery, so multiple coats may be in order. With their childlike whimsy, I assume that they are marketed towards the younger generation but that doesn't mean that any and everyone can't partake in the beaute.

 

Enjoy the colors!

London is The Game's New Leading Lady

 

 

Brandy Norwood put the rumors to rest Sunday night during the BET Awards about Lauren London joining the cast of The Game. Both Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Pooch Hall led audiences to beieve that they were heading off to Baltimore in this past season's finale episode. A creative way to showcase their exit from the show itself. Lauren will appear on the upcoming season playing Kiera, a former child star that has a role on a 'Cosby Show' type of sitcom. There's talk of another male star as well, but no word on who will be cast in that role. 

If you recall a phone interview back in May that Tia Mowry had with MTV's Sway on his morning show, where Pooch Hall was also included, there was talk of possible renegotiation issues. Watch here:

Go Get It! The latest anthem led by the dynamic duo Mary Mary is blazing the airways, videos and youtube as of late. If there ever was a song about perseverance, dedication and faith, this song has it all.

Being a former makeup artist herself, Tina takes great pride and sometimes will run short on time just to get everything just so on that facial canvas!

The Ombre Trend

The latest trend I've come across, outside of color blocking, is the ombre look. It's more of a faded blended appearance between 2 or 3 colors on either hair, clothes and also in makeup wear. If you are a frequent youtuber like myself, you have already seen some tutorials on how to achieve this look. Montana Deleon showcased the ombre style on a wig she made, DulceCandy87 created a look on her hair and on a white collar shirt, while both BeatFaceHoney and PrettyGyrl83 gave makeup tutorials on how to bring out the style using lipstick. I haven't dared to try it yet, but it does look dashing!

Evelyn & Jenn Friends Again!

FINALLY!!! Oh I am sooo relieved and overjoyed that Evelyn and Jenn made up! You are probably wondering, "Um Ebony, why do you even give a $h!t?" Well here's a quick rundown..

I got married 4 years ago this coming Thursday, June 14th and of course I had my besties in my wedding party. One very prominent young lady in my life that I have known since the age of 3 endured some life changes after the wedding and we unfortunately lost our friendship due to some of her actions. I tried, tried and tried to save, repair and remedy our relationship but to no avail, we haven't spoken in years. I am deeply saddened and to watch another lifelong friendship amongst two women go down the drain as publicly as it played out on VH1 this past season was so sad to me. So that's why I care. Maybe I'll give our 30 year friendship another try. Well at least it would have been 30 this year. We both just had birthdays and neither called the other with warm well wishes on the day. I'll try and find the most recent number I have of hers, or just go hard and call her mother's lol!

Well looks like Shaunie has given the go ahead for a Season 5 so we'll have to stay tuned to see if we get a couch view of the friendship reformation.

Until then..

Envy! An Age Old Enemy.

How do you handly your envy? As for me, I'm a work in progress like most of us. I try to nip it in the bud when the green eyed monster happens upon me. Here's a video of me sharing my honesty.
