Diddy Spends Christmas in St. Barth with Kids, Kim Porter, Russell Simmons & Fam, + Andre Harrell & Fam
Luda pulled off the perfect "Mile High Proposal" for long time girlfriend the beautiful Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue. The two are currently on a couples trip with a few other celeb couples we love. Headed to Costa Rica, Luda popped the question in a super cool way. As you see above the aerial view was beautiful, and Eudoxie looked completely stunned.

If you've been paying any attention to hip hop news lately, you know that a few people are in their feelings over the success of rapper Iggy Azalea. The general consensus for some is that Iggy is just another example of the ever present "white washing" of black culture. There are some people (including Iggy) who can't seem to understand what the problem is.

My excitement is so real right now. Music lovers have waited 14 long years for one of the best contributors to music history to drop another album. D'Angelo is arguably this generations best soul artist. He captured listeners almost twenty years ago with his incredibly smooth falsetto and his effortless sex appeal.

Yesterdays Cavs vs. Nets game was super cool for a couple of reasons. For starters Jay Z and the athletes used their platform to get behind the social movements for justice. The hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #ICantBreathe have been circulating the Internets for days now following the murders of unarmed black men and women at the hands of "police". We've been following a few of the stories. Mainstream celebrities like Jay Z are always scrutinized by people who feel like they don't take a stand and get involved. Last night Jay Z posed with a few athletes pregame wearing black I Cant Breathe shirts, but of course this wasnt enough.

While we've heard talk of Cash Money records mishandling their artists and their artists' money before, I doubt that any of us ever thought it would be Wayne speaking on it. This week rapper Lil Wayne- who by all means has carried Cash Money on his back took to his personal twitter account to share with fans the real reason his highly anticipated Carter V album has yet to be released.

Brandy's Exclusive Interview with The Brandy Blog- Talks New Album, Spirituality, & Wanting to work with Jhene Aiko
Music and artistic expression is usually at it's best during time of personal struggle or celebration. This best is magnified when that struggle or celebration is shared with others. America as a whole is definitely struggling right now.
Just yesterday, it was announced that the cop responsible for the death of Eric Garner would not be indicted. This announcement came on the heels of the announcement that Darren Wilson would not be indicted for killing Mike Brown. Many people took to the streets in protest (me being one of them). The wheels have started to turn more vigorously, and people are strategizing and plotting ways to better affect necessary change in our society regarding the worth of black lives.
Wah! Today is my fave's birthday. If you want an example of how you can make change as a human being (even though he's suggested that he'd never change) take a minute to learn up on Shawn Carter. As a fan I always believed that this guy was a family guy, and someone who really did want to live in a better society than that which birthed and raised him.

Chris Rock is arguably one of the funniest people to ever live, so to say he's smart is sort of like a given for me. Most really great comedians are smart. They have to be. They have to be extremely witty, quick on their feet. They also have to be one of those people who just knows everything.. random things.. smart.
Chris recently sat down with Frank Rich from New York magazine and gave one the most brilliant interviews I've ever read from top to bottom. He covered the tough questions with so much simplicity and accuracy(in my opinion) that it feels like he needs a job as an advisor somewhere. I won't say much more because his interview is quite lengthy, but man is it good. Salute to Frank Rich too because a good interview always starts with the questions. Rich's questions are in bold.. Rock's answers follow
