I'm screaming like Jodeci back because they are! The hit r&b group from the 90s is known for their true r&b sound. Consisting of brothers Joel “JoJo” Hailey and Cedric “K-Ci” Hailey, & brothers DeVante Swing and Dalvin DeGrate the group forged a new sound and feeling into music that couldn't be denied.

As last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards unfolded, they proved to be a great night for some of my favorite shows and actresses.
Viola Davis plays an outstanding role in the hit series, How to Get Away with Murder. Last night she took home the outstanding lead drama actress award..which is huge for her. She delivered an extremely emotional speech responding to some of the critics who claimed she isn't as "classically beautiful" as say a Kerry Washington..whatever that means.

Surprise!! Rihanna has had her fans on the longest wait for music. To the point they're dragging her left and right anytime she releases anything that isn't music. The pop star acknowledges their thirst by favoriting their requests for the album they have have affectionately named #R8, and even changing her avi to tease them a bit. They weren't expecting her to jump on twitter last night and release her new single.. it was a total surprise.

There seems to be new lifestyle or Instagram brands popping up everyday whose base images are the faces of celebrities. I've always wondered how celebs feel when they see their faces or names splattered across a tshirt or hat - but they see no profit from it. I remember one day seeing a tweet from Erykah Badu after someone sent a dope tshirt to her with her image on it. Her response was simple- "Cute..where's my money?'

The film Selma, tells the story of one of the demonstrations realized by Martin Luther King Jr., and other Civil Rights activists during the height of their movement. Though the movie focuses mainly on this march from Selma to Montgomery, it truly embodies the struggles that non whites faced in this country overall.

Have you heard the first "Beyonce is pregnant" rumor of 2015? We get these every quarter right? Well, this one was sparked by a cute photo Beyonce posted on her Instagram which shows the mega star buried in sand up to her neck. No, that doesn't necessarily make her preggers. What makes her preggers is the very round tummy made, and the hand prints going in circles around it.

For the past two years, I have had a vision board/ ugly Christmas sweater party at my house. I love the opportunity to gather women together to converse about the positive things that are going on in our lives, provide encouragement for one another when we are struggling, and most of all make plans about the next big move the spirit has in store for us. Something in my spirit told me that this year would be different. I know it's crazy, but I dream about things before they happen a lot. I would have dreams about lessons I would teach in my class, wake up the next day, and teach it the same way. I am not sure if this happens when I'm passionate about something of if it is real life foreshadowing from the spirit above. However, I knew this vision board party would be different.

It's a task to sing any Whitney Houston song. Especially any song she sang in her prime..there isn't a voice like hers left in the world. There are other incredible voices out there though.. one in particular being that of Jazmine Sullivan.
