Sasha Fierce

I've been listening to "I Am....Sasha Fierce" for a few days now. First impressions it's okay, not all the hype people have made it out to be, but after listening to it again it’s actually grown on me. It’s better than her previous outing "B’day".
The album's title is a reflection of Miss Knowles two personalities. I personally prefer the latter half of the album- Sasha fierce. This is where you will find the more up tempo tracks. If your into your lovey dovey, I love my boo, my girl/boy friend is my world, Chris Brown and Jordan Sparks “No Air” flex then you’ll love “I Am”. Clever concept I suppose. Beyonce is blossoming nicely and is clearly finding married life pure bliss.

The “Single Ladies” track has got to be the women's anthem of 2008...why? Simple if you have someone in your life and they mean that much to you, then you better do all you can to hold onto them. “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it...” STANDARD!!! This clip from Tyra Banks show is too funny. I bet Miss Banks was thinking damn I’d love to be singing this set with Beyonce- gyrating around getting my swerve on. I know this is Beyonce’s favourite dance routine of all time by the way she so vehemently does the routine- easy.

Seven Pounds

Will Smith's new film "Seven Pounds" is....deep..and very emotional. This film really got me thinking. Go watch it!

Wake up Mr West!

What is going on with Mr Khan Weezy? First he gets arrested for an incident with the paparazzi. He is constantly SHOUTING on his blog. He then curses out a fan at a concert in Melbourne. His exact words were "EAT S*%! AND DIE!!!!" Wow, all because some one was brave enough to throw a penny at him you know (side eye glance). As I'm trying to keep this page clean of any profanity here's an action replay

It has been a hard 18 months for him, after the loss of his mom and the break up with his fiancée. Hence the release of 808's & Heartbreak. This maybe the only channel in which Mr West feels he can express himself and channel some of the pain. After listening to the album I don't think it's all that bad. Like marmite you'll either love it or hate it, but boy does Kanye sounds upset. My man sounds vex and a little bitter. I'm surprised he didn't create a song called F ALL Y'ALL!!! (LOL).
Kanye has decided to opt for the T-Pain (..I'mma buy you a drank..) route and go for auto-tune througout the whole album. Translated this means half singing, half speaking from West. The only bit of rap you'll hear is from the guest appearances by Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy. I'm sure he'll be back to his spitting self next album.

To cut or not to cut?


Taboo (Black Eye Peas)

J Holiday

Snoop Dogg

When is it acceptable for a man to have long hair, but really? If you are a part of the music industry? Or your name is R. Kelly or Ludacris? They were full time members of the cornrow club but decided to finally opt for the short back and sides (well done guys). I’m not hating most of the above men have longer luscious locks than me and many sista’s out there. But beautiful hair or not, shouldn’t men after a certain age chop it off. I do not love the cornrow look on most men and feel that after a certain age (anything below ten years old) It should be cut off- nothing is worse than a man who has his hair corn-rowed and you can’t even see the parting anymore or the intricate braiding is now replaced with fuzz- come on now! If it is natural then maybe you can get a pass but relaxed shoulder length is definitely a NO NO!!!!
