New Music: Mindless Behavior

I've been bumping this song for the past couple of days...and am not at all ashamed.
The little babies of Mindless Behavior have impressed me with this track featuring Diggy Simmons (Rev Run's son).

However, I do feel these widdle guys are too young to sing about finding Mrs. Right by flying all over the world to find her.....just sayin'.

God, I miss being a kid! These guys' posters would have definitely been plastered on my wall.

R.I.P. Tupac.....15 years later

Man, does time fly!

15 years ago Tupac Shakur passed away, but with the amount of music left behind you kind of forget.
Kind of.

It's amazing how his legacy has managed to live on for 15 years....and possibly forever. Kind of like the Elvis for hip-hop music.

I remember being 10 years old and on the verge of tears when I heard the news.
To this day I really don't know why I was so sad....I was only 10 years old, after all.

To honor Mr. Shakur.....let's "pour out some liquor and reminisce."

10 years later.....

Ten years ago I was a junior in high school getting ready to go to school. Like every morning, I would get dressed while listening to The Doghouse....a local radio station's morning show. I was trying to figure out what the DJs were talking about. I had no idea what the World Trade Centers were...embarassing, I know.

That day at school was a somber one. My Spanish teacher made us all stand in a circle and hold hands and told us how much she loved us. Other classes were spent talking about what had happened, the television in every classroom was turned on to the newsm and teachers explained who Osama bin Laden was.

Crazy how one morning can change the country and so many lives. I've never seen so much patriotism in my life....I had never felt so proud to be an American.

We can always be sad and furious at those inhumane humans who did this to us, or we can choose to see this as a victory. We didn't falter after those attacks were made....we could have easily thrown our hands in the air....been afraid to fly....and targeted every person who looked like a terrorist....but we didn't.

Sure, justice was done just a few months ago when bin Laden was killed.
However our true victory was when brave men and women went into that burning building to save people they didn't know. Those bad-ass passengers on Flight 93 who didn't go down without a flight, possibly preventing their flight from going into the Capitol. Kind civilians who opened their homes to those in need....THAT'S A VICTORY.

We got the ultimate revenge.

Kris Jenner "Loves her Friends"

If you thought it was highly irrevelevant for Kim Kardashian to have a single on iTunes produced by The Dream without even having an album....think again.

Back in 1985, Mama Kardashian (Kris Jenner) starred in her own music video for her 30th birthday professing her love for her friends....The Cheesecake Factory and Valentino...among other things.

The video features cameos from O.J. Simpson, the late-Nicole Brown Simpson and....MICHAEL JACKSON!?!

Okay, the Kardashian Klan is officially making me sick.
Take a look!
This video is my age.

                                  Eddie Murphy will host the 84th annual Academy Awards.
                                 Why do I feel like this is 25 years too late?

Throwback Monday

Since today is Labor Day and Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I thought I'd reach into the throwbacks of all throwbacks and feature this song.

When this song debuted I remember how vulnerable the U.S. was and how heart-warming it was to see the top artists of that time (some who still are) getting together and doing their part.

2011 VMAs

Okay, so I know I'm a week late on doing a little review on the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards and you all already know what happened.

Gaga as Joe Calderone
Looks more like Danny Zucko

Beyonce revealing her baby bump to the world!
You all know:
There was no host this year.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their first child......a child of Destiny, perhaps?
Lady Gaga opened the show as Joe Calderone and performed You and I.
Nicki Minaj looked like an idiot....but won Best Hip-Hop Video
Jay-Z and Kanye did a half-assed version of their hit Otis.
Adele was beautiful when she performed Someone Like You.
Chris Brown did a number copying P!nk by doing an aeriel performance while paying homage to WuTang and Nirvana.
Not quite sure why he chose those two bands, but damn that guy can perform. Too bad he's a mess.

Gaga..being akward.
Britney Spears was awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.....which was awkwardly given to her from Joe Calderone aka a thirsty-Lady Gaga looking to reinact the famous girl-on-girl kiss Brit Brit had with Madonna circa 2003.

The so-called future of hip-hop.
God help me!
Tyler the Creator became known.....because I didn't know who the hell he was.....and he beat out Mr. Black and Yello, Wiz Khalifa, for the best new artist.

Can I just say his mom was a hot-mess when he won. She acted like he won a Grammy....putting her arms up in the air praising Jesus.....

Speaking of Jesus....the Beiber made a special shout out to Jesus de Christo when he accepted his speech.
I've never heard any artist or actor thank's usually God. Interesting.

Beibs and his snake, Johnson

I guess Beiber is trying to harden up his image by bringing a baby boa constrictor to accompany him on the black carpet.

Seriously, Justin? The only person who can pull off bringing a snake to the VMAs is Britney Spears.....and her's was ten times the size of your''re a decade late in the game on this one. He looks like a 7 year old trying to impress his classmates on "bring your favorite pet to school" day.

Nicki Minaj looking a fool
She wants to be the godmother of
Beyonce and Jay-z's baby.

Bruno Mars' tribute to Amy Winehouse
There was a special tribute to Amy Winehouse where Russel Brand made a very quirky-but endearing speech on the late-singer. Bruno Mars also did a rendition of the Winehouse hit, Valerie.

Last but not lease....Lil' Wayne closed the show with an okay performace, while wearing women's leopard print jeggings.
Weezy performing a How to Love/John mashup.

In my opinion, this year's awards show seemed like the Beyonce Awards...considering she stole the show. After her performance of Love on Top, Bey dropped her mic....opened her sequined jacket and revealed to the world she was indeed with child. From there, the cameras shot to a grinning Jay who was cheered on by Kanye.
