More Than A Movie: Why Lifetime Should Cancel Their Aaliyah Biopic

I’m just gonna jump into it. First of all, Lifetime isn’t even a music-focused network. I swear, the only Lifetime original biopic centered around a Black recording artist was Fantasia’s story, and it was a rip off. I mean, Fantasia has a pretty interesting life story from what I read about her. Lifetime just didn’t … Continue reading

Felon Crush Friday: Inspired by Jeremy Meeks

Four men were arrested during an Operation Ceasefire sweep on Wednesday. Among those four was Jeremy Meeks, 30, the person in the mugshot that has been labeled as countless girls’ crushes on today’s first-ever #FelonCrushFriday (and let’s hope it’s the last). Since Meeks’ mugshot was released on social media by Stockton Police, it has received … Continue reading

Why I Hate MARTA, Pt. IV: “Sketch” Ain’t Even The Word…

So earlier today, I was waiting for my bus home when some random ass, dirty ass, disgusting ass, ogre-faced BEAST dug his hand in my bag! Yes, some f***** weirdo tried to steal from my purse–like I wasn’t gonna notice! The dumb part is, I was actually wearing the bag; the straps were on my … Continue reading

Law Abiding Citizen, Part VII: To Serve and Protect

So earlier today, I was waiting for my bus home when some random ass, dirty ass, disgusting ass, ogre-faced BEAST dug his hand in my bag! Yes, some f***** weirdo tried to steal from my purse–like I wasn’t gonna notice! The dumb part is, I was actually wearing the bag; the straps were on my … Continue reading

20 Biopics Where The Actor Looked Nothing Like the Celebrity

In light of recent news that Zendaya will be starring as Aaliyah (even though filming may be cancelled anyway), and the fact that people think Zendaya shouldn’t portray the icon because “she doesn’t look like her,” I decided to create a list of biopics–all of which I have seen–where the actors didn’t look like their characters … Continue reading

Law Abiding Citizen, Pt. VI: In Case You Missed It…

It’s a scary thing to be a law abiding citizen when those who are supposed to “serve and protect” don’t have your best interests at heart. Here are a few headlining stories from earlier this week: 1.) Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a new gun law. On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, Gov. Deal signed legislation that … Continue reading

Natural Diaries: The “Wash-n-Set” with Design Essentials

So about a month and a half ago, I took out my sew-in and decided to work on my afro. I FAILED. Terribly. But as the semester moved on, I realized that I’m gonna be very busy so I needed to do something to my hair that will stick and stay for a while. Otherwise, … Continue reading

I Don’t Celebrate Black History Month, Pt. II

So today, for some reason, I decided to stay an extra hour at work. I had no real reason for staying other than a “feeling” that I should have. Plus, I was tired, and I didn’t feel like leaving my desk, but anywho… Just as I was getting ready to leave, in walks a white, … Continue reading

Law Abiding Citizen, Pt. V: Understanding the Law

Dunn was charged with Murder 1, three counts of attempted murder in the second degree, and one count of firing a weapon into a vehicle. He was found guilty of charges 2 through 5. … Continue reading
