Lady Gaga Wants You To Know That Her Shenanigans‎ Landed Her in the Louvre

I am a huge Lady Gaga fan, but even I’m not feeling her latest release, ART POP, and her fashion has always been insane but her latest costumes are giving me the stink face where I usually find her fashion funky and stylish. I’m not into the ART POP Gaga, but I’m still a loyal Little Monster!

I know my artiness + musical goals may seem lofty, but there is a POP STAR IN THE LOUVRE, right next to the Mona Lisa pic.twitter.com/6XNYfEFRK1

Women’s History Month Spotlight: Tone Trezure – Singer, Artist, Musician & Composer

DSC_5960-1

Name and Occupation:

Latonya G. Givens aka Tone Trezure.  I am an singer/artist/ musician and composer.
 
What do you love about being a woman?

What I love about being a woman is that we hold the keys to any or everything in this world.  We have the power to heal, to nurture to sculpt minds.  The first voice a child hears is it’s mothers. We have the power to make or break souls.

What do you hate about being a woman?

What is there truly to hate about being a woman?   I am provided the same opportunities as men and I have more weapons to win the world over.  These long lashes, my beautiful brown eyes, my curvy hips, my big lips… a brain the size of Mt. Rushmore with a imagination that won’t stop.  I love being a woman.  I love the fact that I can mind-f@ck just about anyone if they let me.  Hypnotizing…
 
Something about you that would shock people?

Something about me that would shock people is that I wanted to be a Country and Western singer when I was growing up.  I love storytelling and no one tells a story like a good soul from the country.

Black History Month Spotlight: Asha Tarry – Social Advocate & Licensed Mental Health Professional

Asha

Name and occupation?
Asha Tarry, Social Advocate & Licensed Mental Health Professional

What do you love most about being a Black woman?
I love that I have so many talents and I feel unstoppable at this time in history, especially, with them.

Who or what inspires you?
I am inspired by other self motivated creative people who don’t let limitations stop them from fulfilling their dreams. I’m also inspired by people who are confident enough to reveal their true selves

What advice do you have for other Black women or men?
For Black women, my advice is to stop living the legacy of myths of untruths that were passed down from former generations. It limits your progress. For Black men, my advice is to take more risks in your careers and love life.

Anything else you`d like to add?
I am a change maker and I knew earlier in life that I was here to make a real difference in the world, especially for young people of color. I am inspired by their free spirits.

The Half Series Interviews: Lisa Chase Patterson

IMG_0003

What is the ethnic background of your parents?

My father is Black and Sicilian, my mom is Cherokee and Spanish

What type of colorism have you had to face and how did you deal with it?

Since I was very young I remember being called Oreo, mutt, half-breed, etc. Many times I would face opposition from both sides of the fence, Blacks would call me White, while Whites would call me Black. It became difficult for me to know where I fit in, so I would usually retreat into myself with reading and painting. As I got older, it became less of an issue with friends, but more of an issue with men who considered me ‘exotic’ or became stuck on light skin and long hair. Having moved to the south recently has brought up color issues in my life again, I’ve learned to move past all of that and be comfortable with myself. What others think of my nationality is no longer my concern.

What do you think of the terms mixed, biracial, or mulatto?

I think that those terms can be used by some to make themselves feel better about who they are as people. When someone needs to claim Spanish, White or Indian in their lineage because they don’t think being Black is good enough, it’s more of a crutch or status symbol. I think those terms can be used factually, but more often are used to make biracial people feel better or worse about themselves, depending on who’s using them.

What do you have to say to people that think if you look White that you are not Black?

Know yourself and know that you are far more than the color of your skin. Allowing other people to dictate who you are racially or as a human being is detrimental to your spiritual health. YOU make the decision about who you are and what you represent. It’s your life, your heritage and your decision to be true to who you are, all of your life. To be the best you, regardless of what color you represent or how others see you.

How To Tell Someone You Don’t Like Them

black-and-white-hate-i-dont-like-you

There should actually be no reason why you have to tell someone you do not like them – except sometimes people forget that not everyone wants to receive a text from them, be their friend on Facebook, or be uploaded to their social media pages at a party you both attended.

It is best to avoid anyone you really do not like – human instincts are there for a reason and until you know someone really well (and by this time it can be too late) you never know why it is you may not like them.

However, if it reaches the stage where you have decided you do not like someone – but they persist in contacting you or uploading you to their Facebook wall, it is time to broach the subject.

  • If you have friends in common telling someone you don’t like them may cause a problem, so find out about the relationships the person has with your close friends before you act. You can also speak to any close mutual friends and try and get an idea of what the person is like and why your other friends are happy to hang out with them.
  • If the person you don’t like actually does something which annoys you, this can be a good way to speak to them about the fact you are not keen to pursue a friendship with them. For example, politely ask them to take down any photos online which you appear in.
  • Blaming the other person is also a good way of bringing up the subject – if there is a mistrust between you, ask them what they don’t like about you, as you get he feeling there is an issue between you. Don’t be aggressive about this, but just mention they do not seem at ease around you or they don’t seem to like you. They may counter this and accuse you of not liking them, at which point suggest you both accept you don’t see eye to eye and just avoid each other in the future.
  • If you work with someone you don’t like, it is best not to be the one to cause an issue in case it affects your career. Annoying people often realize they are annoying and have a knack of deflecting their irritation factor onto others, and remain looking like Mr or Miss Popular at work, so just avoid them.
  • If a work colleague accuses you of not liking them, deny it and report it to your supervisor or line manager before they get there first. The bonus is you now have a bona fide reason for not liking them or wanting to work with them ie they are confrontational.

Instead of going straight into divorce, why not speak to a solicitor for legal separation advice. This means you do not have to rush into divorce.

The Racy Files: Becky Sturm

Name:

Becky Sturm

Explain what makes you racy:

shhh…wanna try a three-way?’

One bar. Three ways. Brilliant

shhh. shampoo | shower | shave

Wanna try a three-way? You know you want to.

Why is being racy so much fun?

Life is short so we also play at work.

We ask, Isn’t Beauty Fun?

Any advice to prudes or sticks in the mud?

Relax. It’s all good, clean fun ;)

The Racy Files: The S&M Experience

Names: 

Sean Hampton & Matt Getic – Creators of ‘The S&M Experience’

Explain what makes you racy: 

Sean:  We write comedy material that deals with race, sexuality, and culture.  Matt and I are equal opportunity offenders so no one is safe from our satire.  Along with that we don’t hold back.  It’s not enough to make a skit talking about a certain celebrity and his alleged sexual encounters at a massage parlor, we have to give the audience the secret hidden audio recordings too.

Why is being racy so much fun? 

Matt:  Because many people are too politically correct.  I love that we can put out a comedy skit that gets emails from one group of people saying it’s genius and emails from another group saying it’s a sign of the apocalypse.  It wouldn’t be as much fun if it wasn’t for the haters.   

Any advice to prudes or sticks in the mud? 

Sean:  I’ll quote a line from a classic John Belushi character:  “My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.”

Matt:  Sex. Eat. Repeat.

Dangerous Lee Catches Up With Dr. Blogstein

Once upon a time I was the co-host of the #1 Comedy show on the Blog Talk Radio network, The Radio Happy Hour with Dr. Blogstein. An on air argument ended our working relationship, but since then we have made up and continue to be friends. Though we have never met, I love Dr. Blogstein and I really enjoyed being a part of The Radio Happy Hour every week. Dr. Blogstein is no longer on the internet airwaves, and he is sorely missed. Here’s what he’s up to these days…

Are you still known as Dr. Blogstein or are you simply David Brown?

Twitter is the last place where Dr. Blogstein lives on. It’s the only place left where I can be inappropriate and obnoxious with little consequence. Everywhere else, I’ve been stripped of my super powers and am only know as my Clark Kent persona.  

What have you been up to since you left Blog Talk Radio?  

I have not found another vehicle to filter my creativity through. Thoughts and jokes over 140 characters are all pent up inside, the rest I get out on twitter. I have been able to rejoin my Tuesday night softball league again and I do use the immense amount of time that I used to spend preparing for the Radio Happy Hour being more social and at the gym. I’ve probably become a more well-rounded person since ending the show.  

Will you be returning to radio?  

I think I would really like to under the right circumstances, with the right technology and the right compensation. I put too much hard work into it and was so good at it that I think I outgrew where I was but had no place else to go. If that place ever exists, I’d absolutely do it again. I loved it!  

Do you miss me, Vinny, and the rest of the crew?

I miss everyone. Even Vinny. I have people who I consider friends and who are family that I speak to every few months or so but I spoke to you and Vinny, and then Burl and Collette for over an hour each week for over three years. Of course I miss that. It was a very special time.

Ask Dangerous Lee – What do you think about the Chris Brown and Rihanna musical collaborations?

Q: What do you think about the Chris Brown and Rihanna musical collaborations?

Shana T.

Detroit, MI

A: I have not heard either track and I really don’t care to listen, but I think that those two have made amends and appearing on each others track is a way to show that they respect each other musically, but, and this is a big but…Rihanna gives up a little bit of her dignity in the process because it makes Chris Brown look good, but it makes Rihanna look like a fool.  I think it’s also an attempt to tell the world to get over it because they have. They’re like the Ike and Tina of our generation.

We also must not forget that celebrities do most things to make money and get attention. This situation is no different. I think Chris Brown is a young man of horrible character and that he needs to focus on working on his temper and attitude instead of his next Michael Jackson inspired dance move or wack techno club laced track. His actions in the media and on Twitter since beating up Rihanna have proved that he is “off” a tad bit. If he wants everyone to forgive and forget what happened he needs to clean up his act, but instead he chooses to act like an ass. He’s a man that beat up a woman and that’s something that leaves a bad taste in many peoples mouth. For many it is unforgivable and unforgettable.

Of course, all the Chris Brown stans love him and have even publicly and ignorantly stated that they would let Chris Brown beat them up just to spend time with him. There are so many desperate, sad, and sick young women that support him, which says a lot about their priorities and what they are willing to put up with in a relationship with a man. However, girls liking the Bad Boy is nothing new. For me, Chris Brown can kick rocks and kiss my ass. I’ve never been impressed with him musically or otherwise. He’s not even on my radar.

Got questions?

 

6 Reasons You Should be Happy You Are Single

Being in college, it is so fun to meet tons of different people. Sometimes, you might meet someone that is more special to the rest. You end up spending all of your time with them, you can wait until you see them again, and you dream of marrying them someday. However, between all of this happiness, you and your partner start to quarrel. You start to fight about the smallest things, and then you fight about everything that you can. At the end of it, you are left single and heartbroken. It happens to everyone, and many are left depressed and don’t want to keep living life. But, if you are newly single, do not despair. Being single can be a great time for you. If you don’t believe me, here are 6 reasons you can love single life. 

1. You can eat whatever you want, when you want. You don’t have to be constantly compromising with someone else. You don’t have to put up with someone that wants you to eat something that you don’t really want to be eating. You can take time to explore what you like to eat.

2. You don’t have to share your bed. Sometimes, it is nice to just spread out on your bed. You don’t have to worry about waking up someone else, and you don’t have to worry about making the bed. If you get lonely at night, you can always curl up with a big stuffed animal. 

3. You can kiss whoever you want. It’s great kissing the same person, you being to get comfortable with each other, but it can also get boring. When you are single, you can kiss whoever you want and you don’t have to have any strings attached. 

4. Flirting is great! You can flirt with anyone that you want. You don’t have to worry about your significant other getting jealous, you can flirt just to flirt! You don’t have to worry about any strings attached, and you can flirt and that’s all it has to be. 

5. You don’t have to worry about Facebook drama. When you are in a relationship, you will probably want to advertise it on Facebook. It you start having problems, everyone on Facebook knows. When you are single, you just have to worry about your own stuff, and not what anyone else is going to post. 

6. You get to spend time with your friends! One thing that you do miss out when you are in a relationship is being with your friends. When you are single, you can stay friends with your old pals, and make new ones!
