UM! Xscape Reunited on the BET Awards Last Night (Video)

You guys. The BET Awards had lots of highlights. Everyone from Bruno Mars, New Edition, Migos, and SZA, and of course Chance The Rapper's moment of recognition. The BET awards surely knows how to deliver moments.

KOSIGN: The Game Needs Ryan Destiny

I've been holding this post in for quite some time, so bear with me. I think I was waiting on some solo music to really go in on here about this baby, but last night's BET Awards is forcing my hand. If you don't know  the face above, her name is Ryan Destiny. Striking right? I know. I #KOSIGNed her on IG a while ago, but have been waiting to post here. I had fully prepared myself to do some extensive post on how much of a quadruple threat this girl is, but a greater and more important reality has emerged-so we'll hold that. As for her talent-just google her..or connect on any of her poppin social media accounts. The short of the long is, we have a real singer's singer (I mean.. baby sings DOWN-raw talent), a beauty that might just make people uncomfortable in a room, major acting chops, and a dancer- like she does it for a living.

Solange's Letter to Her Teenage Self is Actually For All Of Us

I've long loved Solange for her way with words, with style, with authenticity. I just had a conversation while home with my sister and her friend about just how unique Solange's contribution to music has been. She's never appeared to have tried to fit into any boxes, and for what it's worth it's worked out for her. 

Today, she shared an open letter to her teenage self with Teen Vogue, and I could not resist sharing it here with you. It's a lengthy read, but it's a must read. These are life lessons and proverbs that all of us need to hear/know only they are pulled from Solange's real life experiences. My goodness I love her way with words.. she even touches on that in this letter. Thank You Solange! You actually wrote this for all of us.  I also think big sis should hire you next time for the poetry contributions!

Continue for letter..

#StayTuned Watch the Full trailer for My New Web Series the-#KayKiKOSIGN

While I'm taking a small break from the site, I am working on something SUPER fun. I'd like to finally share it with you! A few years ago I was sitting at a rehearsal with a bunch of really talented friends and associates. In that moment I felt God ask me, "Kay..why aren't you in your place to really support these folks like you want to?" was a terribly good question. I'd started this site, and have always tried my best to show love and support to the artists I come across.

Reminder for the Entrepreneurs, Dreamers, Doers, Feelers, Lovers...You!

How can you lose your song..
When you have sung it for so long?
How can you forget your dance, your dance..
When that dance is all you ever had?

It must be, it must be true
You can't separate the two..
Oh no, you can't
It's impossible to do..
Just like the salt in the stew
Oh my, it's all a part of you..
One thing that life cannot do
It can't take your song from you

So when life brings a chance, a chance
For you to give your part, to give your part away
Don't just stand there feeling scared
Don't be afraid
'Cause there could be a treasure right there

Now listen, listen to THE truth
It does not matter, doesn't matter what you do
Still gonna be you
Just like the salt in the stew
Yeah, it's all A part of you
And one thing, the one thing that life cannot do
It can´t take your song from you

Life can't take it, you don't give it
Life can't take it

It can´t take your song from you

Shut Up already about Beyonce's womb

As a woman, I can recall the fear of infertility lingering over my head as early as my teenage years. No, I wasn't trying to have kids at that age, but I knew even then that the inability to have them when the time came would hurt me to my core. If Im honest I still think about it too much today, even though Im still not trying to have any. According to the CDC's website, recent studies show that 12% of women ages 15-44 suffer with infertility. Thats just over 7 Million women struggling to conceive or carry a baby full term. I personally know women who have lived through miscarriages, or years of trying to conceive. It's a painful experience. It is the fundamental characteristic of womanhood to create, nurture, and birth. Young, old, black, white, rich, a woman the womb is the great equalizer. She's a part of our power as a woman. To reach a point of wanting to bring forth life, building up all of the excitement that comes with a newborn baby, only to have it stripped from you can be crippling to say the least.
