Throwback Monday


This week's throwback is in honor of the passing of Grammy-award winning Motown artist, Bonnie Pointer, of The Pointer Sisters

The group is best known for their songs I'm So Excited, Jump and Automatic
She is survived by her brothers Aaron and Fritz and sisters Ruth and Anita Pointer.
Pointer died on Monday, she was 69 years old.
Mama Kaurdashian was a fan of The Pointer Sisters and Automatic was one of the songs she used to replay on a mixtape my uncle made for her. I have many fond memories listening to this song while in the family van going to Girl Scouts, practice, etc.
RIP Miss Bonnie.

Throwback Monday

                                                   Apologies for neglecting this space.
Once the Rona reared its ugly head, my day job has been keeping me busy.
However, I hope you all continue to follow me on the 'gram!
That's where I keep my most up-to-date celeb news.
While I'm not updating this blog, it doesn't mean I'm not up on my celeb gossip and updates.
As a member of the lambily, it isn't lost on me what the rest of us are doing to boost Mother Mariah's old... and looked past albums.
A couple of weeks ago it was E=MC2 and now it's Charmbracelet. 
While Charmie as Mariah call it came after her infamous breakdown on TRL, Mimi has always touted it as one of her faves.
So, to honor the album's resurgence here's my fave. It's a perfect message to remember during these unprecedented times.

Throwback Monday

                    Eminem made headlines for his surprise performance at the Oscars Sunday night. Prior to that, Em released a new album that is pretty good. A far cry from the other recent ones. So, are we indeed empty without him?

Throwback Monday: RIP Mamba

Most of the world is still reeling from the sudden death of Lakers and NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Bryant, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester, and Ara Zobayan. All nine were killed when the helicopter they were on, flown by Zobayan, crashed in Southern California. My heart aches for those who lost a loved one in this tragic accident. I have family members who are diehard Kobe fans and learned about his greatness through them. I always found Kobe to be a little on the cocky-side, but grew to appreciate him while watching him play. I really enjoyed Kobe's life during his retirement. Seeing him be a hands-on father with his four daughters. It warmed by heart, as it reminds me of my relationship with my dad. With that being said, this throwback is dedicated to Kobe. Many may not remember he attempted to dabble in music. May this video bring a little humor to this sad time.
