Rihanna – Stay ft. Mikky Ekko | Pink – Just Give Me a Reason ft. Nate Ruess

He’s so very cute, that Mikky Ekko. Doesn’t she look like she’s trying to fart in the tub at the end? That expression on her face…. Like the video, I only wish they’d been fair and have him without that sweater on. Nice arms.  😀   I like this song too.

The following continues the discussion originating in the Black Actress Review: Just Wright – Big Boned Gurl Gets Good Guy Balla post. Stacey says: Ok, I must […]

Open Forum: Music, Getting Off the Planet, This Election and What’s Up?

Top 40 Radio There are three singers that I find hard to listen to: Taylor Swift (she whines, really cannot sing), Kelly Clarkson (she sings about the same thing over and over again – being unable to get along with any man) and Katy Perry (I wanna take a hammer to her – Madonna did […]

The Nice Good Black Man

Using an interesting quote from Classic NYer: But that being said, perhaps I can show you another point of view. Take for example my brother, a stand -up individual raised by my mother and father with correct morals, treats his mother and two sisters with respect, graduated with degrees and working on another one, acts […]

Black Women: Please Yourself First

Note: This is a random rant. I’m a selfish person. I’m not afraid to admit that. It’s probably because I’m the last child, the only girl, and spoiled rotten. I’m generous, friendly or kind – when it suits me. Guilt Gets One Nowhere. I’ve racked my brain to find instances of when I’ve pitched in, […]

Black Women – Devil’s Advocate: Has our femininity been denied?

It’s September, and it’s Devil’s Advocate* month. This topic will be a bit spicier than usual. Are black women allowed to be women? Has our femininity been denied or compromised?

It’s September, and it’s Devil’s Advocate* month. Let’s have some fun, shall we? You’ve been dateless, man-free, and frustratingly single this entire summer, month, year, decade, or century. All these BWE / BW-IR blogs are starting to work your last nerve. Why? You are getting so effing tired of hearing all these damn rules of […]

Rant: What I Dislike About Being a Black Woman Sometimes

Oh, I like being a woman who’s also “black”, just fine, it’s people getting on my nerves that ruins it. You are damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. People like making up these “what a black woman shouldn’t do” rules, because they are emotional bullies, hypocrites, and misogynists. If you work for […]
