RiRi & Breezy Official

brown1Recently, Rihanna has come forth confirming her relationship with Chris Brown. No big surprise there. An official confirmation, in my opinion, wasn’t necessary. It was quite obvious that the two has rekindled their flame for some time now. Not to mention, there are constant uploads to RiRi’s Instagram account with pictures of her and Brown in intimate positions.

The pair’s actions have been screaming for attention, which is quite contradictory to what they say in the media. Rihanna and C.B. even paired up for her last album to create the song, Nobody’s Business. The thing is that with all the attention they’re trying to create for themselves, they’re doing just the opposite of what they supposedly want people to do. Yeah, it’s nobody’s business, but yet their actions show that they want the world to be in their business. If a celebrity really wants to have some kind of private romantic life, it’s hard, but possible.

I will say that I do like both artists’ music, but other than that I could careless about either one, more so Chris Brown. I don’t think he’s learned a lesson, and that he’s this new and improved person. Since the incident, he’s gotten into fights with other celebrities, thrown chairs, and never shy of a Twitter rant full of expletives. It appears that he has an anger issue. Yeah, yeah. I get the whole ‘he’s human’ thing, but other humans who have been in a domestic abuse situation have made noticeable changes in their lives. In my opinion, it doesn’t appear that he has.

Now, what bothers me about Rihanna is that I don’t believe she ever wanted to leave him in the first place. I think she only did it because the media was coming down on her and her image. I am willing to bet that she hasn’t stopped communicating with him since the incident. Why take everyone through this roller coaster ride, knowing that you never wanted to leave his side in the beginning? I don’t think you can really get over a person, if that’s what you intend, by continuing to communicate and be around that person. So, in my opinion, I don’t think getting over him and moving on with her life is what she intended to do.

No one knows what happened back in 2009, but the end result was that Rihanna got beat up badly. We don’t know if she provoked him, which is possible, but what we do know is that the beating she got was violent. It wasn’t just one or two punches, or a push. Brown hit her repeatedly, and I haven’t seen any pictures of what damage she did to him. With that said, I don’t care to hear about the argument about how she provoked him because the end result is still the same.

I, like many other people are over what happened. Hell, I could really careless that they’re back together. I mean it was obvious that they were anyway. With the amount of people trying to pry into RiRi and Chris Brown’s private lives; how about they make an effort to stop contributing to people’s desire to do so by publicly displaying everything about their private lives. However, I’m sure that’s not a real solution because that’s not what they truly want to do. They enjoy the spotlight, and will bask in it as long as they can, and as long as people hold the light in their direction. My thing is don’t complain about something, and turn around and contribute to it. Actions DO speak LOUDER than words. And that’s all I have to say about that.

This is just my opinion. So, for all you Breezy fans out there don’t get…

2013 Presidential Inauguration

inaugI, like many Americans turned into the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. I must say that I was quite pleased with how it turned out. It was truly a historical day within this historical year. This year marks both the 150th  anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation of Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther’s King Jr.’s “I have a dream…” speech.

The President and the first family looked quite dapper  I absolutely loved Michelle’s new hairstyle, and I thought her dress fully embodied who she believes herself to be. President Barack Obama had a beautiful glow to go along with his well-fitted suit. Vice President Joe Biden also looked to be glowing, and extremely happy to be there. His wife also looked wonderful.

As the cameras scanned the crowd, I couldn’t help to feel joyed by what I witnessed. There were so many different types of people. One thing that I do believe is that the President is able to reach people from different backgrounds on a much broader level. Something that I don’t think Gov. Romney could have ever done. That is the kind of president the United States needs to have continuously, and I think this in part is why President Obama was elected in 2008, and again in 2012.

The Inauguration program was wonderful. The invocation was excellent, and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir was amazing! I was pleased when Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander referenced Alex Haley, the author of Roots, by quoting  the six words Haley lived by, “Find the Good and Praise It.” The President’s speech was great. I liked how he referenced our (American) history, while sharing his platform and what he plans to continue to do as our President. I can also appreciate that he spoke about how things need to change, but not without taking steps and people making a contribution to those changes. He also repeated “We the People”, and I think that was definitely noteworthy  In other words, I thought it was a great speech. Kelly Clarkson did an outstanding job, and Beyonce did a wonderful job, too. I actually had to listen to the poem twice. The first time I was a little lost, but after the second hearing, I can say that it was a well-written poem. It was very touching, and relatable. The benediction was great! I absolutely loved the fact that he prayed over ALL his children, and not just certain groups of people.

Overall, I’m happy that I had the opportunity watch the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. In the future, I’d recommend to those who haven’t watched one to do so. It’s a very important tradition in our country, and should be experienced whether in person or not.

FOW

Here’s the fit if the week! What can I say? I love leopard print! I try to pair it with any and everything. I’m really into burgundy these days, so if course, I thought these two things would look great together!

New BET Tuesday Lineup Review

Image

Real Husbands of Hollywood 

I, like many other people have been anticipating the new Kevin Hart show, Real Husbands of Hollywood. With all of the promotions BET has been doing for the program, I just knew it was going to be funny. Not to mention, the snippets shown during the BET awards show were hilarious. Needless to say, I was right in front of my TV when the show came on.

After watching the show, I can truly say that I was disappointed. I think I laughed a couple of times throughout the entire 30 minute show. It was quite boring, and not what I expected. I think with this being the first episode, it should have come a lot harder. I hope the premier was not an indication of how the season will be. If so, Kevin Hart is in serious trouble. I’m not sure what the issue was, but BET definitely gassed this one up. I can say that I do like JB Smoove though; he’s really funny. Aside from Kevin Hart, I think he’ll contribute the most to the show. Now, on the other hand, Nick Cannon is not funny nor is he a good actor (my opinion). I’ll have to wait to see what Robin Thicke and Nelly do before I can give an opinion. I’m glad to see Duane back on the scene; I think he’s a pretty good actor. I happen to believe that Boris is just alright. I’m not a big fan, but it is what it is.

I haven’t seen that many positive reviews via Twitter or Facebook. So, I guess a lot of other people have the same sentiments. Hopefully next week will be better; it has to be.

2nd Generation Wayans 

Of the two premiers, I thought this show was better. I think Damien Wayans is a decent actor. I’m not so sure about Craig Wayans though. Letoya Luckett surprised me; I’m inclined to watch more of her although she’s a guest star. Again, I was happy to see that BET dug deep when casting for these new shows. I’ve always liked Tatyana Ali. So, that was a pleasant surprise. Regina is a really good actress. I’m glad she’s guest starred on the show; I believe she added credibility. I haven’t seen George Gore since My Wife and Kids, and I’m not really sure what to expect. It should be interesting though.

I think this show will do well considering that there’s a real plot, and it seems to be entertaining enough. It has a young fresh cast that I think will be able to entice the viewers, and keep them entertained.

With the epic failure of The Game, BET has to do a better job piloting new programs. BET has been losing a lot of credibility and loyalty from the viewers. With that said, the network has a lot on the line with every new show they put out there. I hope they’ll be able to find some success with their new Tuesday lineup, but after last night, I’m not so sure they will.
