What’s Wrong With Kissing Strangers?

I didn’t know who DNCE was, until a few months ago. Sure, I have heard several songs from their self titled debut album at the gym. “Toothbrush”, “Cake By The Ocean”, “Good Day”, and “Body Moves” all get frequent spins at LA Fitness. I must admit, I am a fan of the group after hearing […]

Don’t Be Just Another Book On The Shelf

I am currently reading through my second novel, No Cream In The Middle. Although I am extremely excited to share this book with everyone, I am nervous too. July 7th is the official release date (shameless plug). However, I still have some things to check off my list. You may be wondering why I am […]

Katy Perry On The Chopping Block

Katy Perry has always been a persuasive trendsetter. She changed the way we view cherry Chapstick forever. She┬áreleased the visuals for her new single, “Bon Appetit”, this weekend.

LeToya Luckett Gets Back 2 The Music

Her sophomore effort, Lady Love, followed in fairly quick succession. However, it took 8 years for her to release her latest album, Back 2 Life. The former Destiny’s Child […]

Back To Make Some Organized Noize

Organized Noize is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the 90s including TLC’s “Waterfalls”, En Vogue’s “Don’t Let Go” and much of OutKast’s early catalog. The accomplished production group consists of Rico Wade, Sleepy Brown and Ray Murray. The men of Organized Noize always find a way to make it back to the […]

En Vogue: Are The Funky Divas Still ‘Good’?

Dawn, Cindy, Terry, and Maxine ruled the Billboard charts in the early 90s. The Funky Divas picked up where the Supremes left off. They took the doors off the hinges for groups like Destiny’s Child to follow years later. No other female group sings as well as they do. Don’t agree? Name one female group […]

The Truth About Good Character

We have heard it all before. “To whom much is given, much is required”. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. “A strong work ethic builds good character”. I have never heard that last one verbatim. Nonetheless, you get the point. I am naturally a hard working person. In fact, I can be dedicated to […]
