For Thought: When Is It Ever Okay To Use The ‘N’ Word?

Never. Why are we still using that word to begin with? I don’t care who you are, black, white, red or purple, can we just stop throwing the ‘ni**as’ word around already. Geez!  I’m not ranting, just addressing an issue that’s been a long time coming, upon glimpsing news about Gwyneth Paltrow calling her friends, Beyonce & Jay-Z, the same controversial word. I guess Mrs. … Continue reading For Thought: When Is It Ever Okay To Use The ‘N’ Word?

Spotted! Did Narsha copy Bey’s style?

In Brown Eyed Girls‘ latest music video “Sixth Sense“, vocalist Narsha is seen wearing an outfit and hair style awfully similar to what Beyonce donned for her “4” album cover. The strikingly uglyyy fur thingy was designed by Frenchman Alexandre Vauthier, the name doesn’t ring a bell because he’s an up-and-comer rather than a veteran in the industry.  What’s also ironic is how Continue reading “Spotted!

“House of Deréon” lacks growth

Beyoncé may have shown depth and maturity in her latest musical release, but her clothing line has yet to reflect that. Over the years, I’ve noticed that ‘House of Deréon’s” designs have never really grown up; the outfits continue to display glittery artwork (that always comes off) or unsophisticated styling. Regardless of the family connections, as a celebrity I wouldn’t want my name affiliated with the kind of designs this line has to offer. I mean, the club look is really getting played out. Are they only inspired by the party scene? Where’s the edgy and glamorous? Certainly not in the brand. Recently I glimpsed the runway show during London’s Fashion Week and I must admit I liked “some” of the designs depicted in the Knowles’ spring 2012 collection. However, there wasn’t anything AWE-mazing, and will those same tasteful designs ever be featured in the stores? I have my doubts. Continue reading ““House of Deréon” lacks growth”

For Thought: What’s all the fuss about?

 

I’ve been hearing a lot regarding Beyonce’s decision to fire her manager, who happens to be her father Mathew Knowles. After the news came out about daddy Knowles’ getting fired, I thought it would end there but apparently some people just couldn’t leave it alone. Recently speculations began to spread surrounding the “real” reason why he was let go. Many are claiming that Mr. Knowles was ripping off his superstar daughter, and now he’s filing a lawsuit against Beyonce’s new management (which happens to be her husband’s own Roc Nation) citing that they convinced his daughter to fire him on the basis of false accusations.  Continue reading “For Thought: What’s all the fuss about?”

[Review] Beyoncé’s “4”

Beyoncé is a true global icon. She is considerably one of the hardest working female entertainers ever, and with all that she’s achieved over the years do you dare deny that fact? Her latest album “4” showcases a mature Beyoncé with more aggressive and powerful vocals that seem to have intensified since her previous “I Am…Sasha Fierce”. The fourth album presents soft, sensual and emotional ballads along with dance jams fans love hearing from the artist. There’s a strong concept that’s quickly unraveled while each track plays: Beyoncé moves from flirty, vulnerable, glamorous, to love and appreciation. Nothing satisfies me more than listening to an album that sounds like plenty of effort went into it. And “4” is just flawless. Continue reading “[Review] Beyoncé’s “4””
