Everyone should be tuned in to the VH1 Hip Hop Honors  tonight because I have no doubt that the performances will be phenomenal. Teyana and Iman even stepped into The ShadeRoom before the performance to let everyone know that they are more than excited to be there. Teyana was spotted wearing an all black bodysuit with a hot yellow curly wig and over dramatic circular sunglasses. It was obvious from the attire that those two were very happy to share this special moment with the Queen!

Speaking of performances, can you all name one of your favorite Lil Kim songs? Which one do you think Teyana will sing tonight? Will Iman Shumpert play Biggie on stage too? So many questions that need answers. I hope you all are staying tuned in!

 

P.S. Who knew that one of the greatest and influential women in the game would share a birthday with me!?

I’m honored and I love you Lil Kim!!

Tina Knowles Sets The Record Straight!

 

kno1

Tina Knowles (Beyoncé’s mother), had a few words to share last night about the rumors surfacing the net about her supposedly lying on her daughter’s behalf. Tina, when accepting her award made it known that Beyoncé was not able to stay because she had to rush back to London for her concert the next day for her scheduled tour.

With all this being said she was fed up when she caught wind of what was being said by haters of course and she let us know she was only addressing these rumors for Beyoncé’s real fans. Tina starts off by saying in her lengthy message on her instagram post that “we celebrate when the stumble, we hope that they fall.” Basically saying that you have all this to say now but you were probably just with the hype about 3 hours ago when she was on stage, so stop cut it out.

Tina then went on to elaborate on the real sacrifices that Beyoncé had to endure just to make that BET Awards performance even happen in the way that it did. The time and money sacrifices were unbelievable and beyond what many could even imagine.

The ignorance saddens me because we know that Beyoncé is a genuine person and literally puts her all times 10 into everything she does. What performer do you know these days that care about there fans as much to only get three hours of sleep just to make everyone happy?

Half of these “artist” that you all vouch for can’t even spell nor show up to a performance on time for you to leave with barely even an experience at all.

Come on now people, know a diamond when you see one. Beyoncé and her entire team are the epitome of dedication and soul, don’t take that for granted while it’s here and then cry your eyes out later when it’s no more.

No one knows what one day in Beyoncé’s world looks like so for the future:

1. Do not speak on what you do not know.

2. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

God bless you all!

PHOTOS: The 2016 #BETAwards was Amazing

DSC_6903

The 2016 BET Awards was epic and by far one of the best awards the Network has done so far. The show was hosted by “Black-ish” stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross who’s great  chemistry and playfulness energized fans and prepared audiences at the Microsoft Theater and across the world for a fun show. The show was hot from start with Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar getting everyone in formation to the close out with the beautiful Sheila E honoring her mentor and friend Prince. Check out my dope behind the scenes photos below.

The Imprint Of Jesse Williams’s Words!

jess

Let me just start by saying that the 4 minutes of spotlight that Jesse Williams was allotted had the potential to change someone’s life. While he was speaking last night I was speechless as I’m sure many others were. The truth was reiterated time and time again in Jesse’s speech at the BET Awards when he was presented with the Humanitarian Award.

Jesse started his speech off strong and humble, saying that the award was not just for him but the struggling people all over the world. He gave special and much needed recognition to the African-American women and mothers of the world because he realizes that they are rarely appreciated daily for everything they go through. Beyond this he goes into talking about the racial dynamics of this country and the breakdown of where it all starts.

jess3

Yes, African-Americans were oppressed (and still are) and our ancestors fought to get us out of oppression so why do we continue to do the dirty work for them by oppressing ourselves? His speech was honestly a s for everyone to wake up because it i so much bigger than making money and throwing a couple of name brands on your body.

Look at the bigger picture!

jess1

I strongly urge everyone to take 4 valuable minutes of your life and analyze each bullet that Jesse hits in his speech, it is amazing.

Btw, Jesse graduated from Temple University which is my school! Great minds really do think alike, that gives me so much hope for the future!

Who enjoyed this year’s BET awards? As I mentioned yesterday, many people were shocked at the fact that Beyoncé’s dancers had made an appearance and they wondered if that meant Yoncé was in the building. Well, again to everyone’s surprise she was and she performed a powerful song from her album, Lemonade. Can anyone guess which one it was?

2016 BET Awards - Show

“Freedom, Freedom, I can’t move. Freedom cut me loose.” Yes, Beyonce along with the talented genius Kendrick Lamar performed “Freedom” last night. Not only was it an amazing performance because of who they are but also because of the severe messages that pierced through each word, each note, and each movement.

When you are educated you start to see the world in an entirely new perspective and every little thing carries a lot of weight. With that said, the underlying messages in their performances literally brought me to tears.

yonn

If you gave up on BET before I now encourage you to go check out this latest show because that was not the only profound moment of that night!

Positivity, peace and love is what it is all about.
