Bruce Jenner Transforming to Woman

I’ve pondered for weeks on if I should even write about this. There’s a fine line between touching on a relevant topic and exploiting someone’s real life for gained readers.  I came to my decision to write about Bruce Jenner’s transformation because he [and eventually she] will be publicly addressing this major decision and he seems to be very comfortable with the world knowing.

So,  here it goes!  The former Olympic gold medalist, more recently known for appearing on the hit reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is transforming into a woman.  Throughout the years,  we’ve seen him struggle in his marriage to Kris Jenner and fight to build relationships with his kids. It was easy to feel for the guy. At one point he seemed like the only sane person on the show.  With his divorce being very public and documented on TV, we’ve seen less and less of Bruce.

During this down time, rumors of a sex transformation began to surface.  At first,  it just seemed like a distasteful accusation, but now, reports actually confirm that Bruce Jenner is in fact becoming a woman.  Photos of him wearing lipstick,  nail polish and having long hair in ponytails started taking over the Internet.  

Bruce is said to have confirmed an upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer where he will speak freely about his decision.   Not many family members have spoken up with their opinions, but his mother did state,  “I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect” during her Radaronline interview.

Take a look at Bruce’s looks over the years and remember that this is his choice.  Everyone has the right to live their life as they see fit.   Let’s not judge!

Do the Kardashian’s Represent the New ‘American Dream’?

A few days ago, Kris Jenner addressed some comments that President Obama made about her daughter Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.  In an interview with Amazon, the President said:

The American Dream involved some pretty basic stuff. A home you could call your own. A good job where you felt some security. A good education, and the ability to get a higher education if you wanted to pursue it. People felt if they worked hard they could get there. I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house’. I think, there has also been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are.

There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.

Now, if I’m reading this, I’m thinking, “wow, he’s right!”  If you think about it, Americans, especially children, are exposed to a different type of success.  We don’t just see hard workers on television, we see reality shows where families have millions and are afforded a dramatic lifestyle where they can spend any amount they want on any THING they want.  Is that so bad?  Is that unrealistic?  Well, Kris Jenner seems to think Obama was out of line; take a look at her response:

*Video* Toya and Memphitz Release Sneak Peek of New Reality Show “Crazy in Love”

Toya-Memphitz-rolling-out-mag

Ever since K. Michelle went public with her allegations of being brutally abused by ex Memphitz, many have been waiting to hear his side of the story.  What better way to tell his side than to begin a reality show with his wife?  They do mention K. Michelle in the trailer; this should be interesting.  Check out the clip below:

Do Ratchet Shows Give the Black Community a Bad Rep?

I’ve always wondered what keeps me glued to the television when shows like Love & Hip Hop come on.  To be honest, the fights make me cringe, the bullying makes my blood boil, the men who dog the ladies out make me roll my eyes…all in all, my blood pressure shoots up.  So, whyyyy do I put myself through it? I’ve figured it out and it’s for a couple of reasons.  The first reason being, it’s comforting to see how I DON’T want to live.  Did that make sense?  Let me break it down a little bit.  When I see the women fighting, I know I don’t want that to be me.  When I see the women dealing with these men who are no good, I see what I want to avoid.  When I see these grown folks unable to speak articulately, it makes me read a book (lol).  The other reason, is simple…it’s entertaining.  Maybe that makes me a hypocrite because the very reasons that make me hate the show, are the same reasons that also keep me watching.

One thing I know for sure, reality television should not be a representation of an entire community!  I see the same ratchet behavior when I watch The Real Housewives of Orange County and Beverly Hills.  There are lessons to be learned by some of the stuff we see, but overall…it’s just TV!

Interview: Tatyana Ali on Wendy Williams

So, all of my readers hopefully know by now that I am absolutely in love with Drake!  It pains me to hear Wendy ask Tatyana whether or not she has hooked up with him (yikes!), but it is the only reason why I am posting this on my site (lol).  All Drake every-thang!  This is a cute interview; check out what she says:

This some amazing news!  I just love when women have the chance to carry a child and bring them into this world!  We’ve seen the struggles of Tamar getting pregnant and searching for a surrogate on the hit show, Braxton Family Values.  So, to see her glowing and carrying the baby herself, is beyond beautiful!  CONGRATS Tamar and Vince!

I NEVER rip people on my site because this is a place to spread good news, great stories of success, interviews, music and more.  However, I think it’s a disgrace when people try and “drop” some music or a video just because they’ve reached reality television fame.  This industry has taken a turn for the worse and the artists who are TRULY talented and take their craft seriously, should be offended that videos like “Devil” even make it into production.

Tahiry is so beautiful, but let’s face it…music is not her strong point.  The video is horrible, her voice sounds bad and her body is bangin’, but the clothes were very unflattering.  Her management team SHOULD have done a better job with making sure the song was mixed better and coming up with a better video, PERIOD.  I see artists on my site, in my email, on Twitter, etc. wanting me to feature their music, wanting me to spread the word and they are SO talented, yet they never get that big shot to make it in the music world.  I feature as many up-and-coming artists as I can, without flooding my site with just music, but Tahiry may have just sparked a long stream of new/undiscovered artists on my site, just so I feel better about putting this whack video on here.

I hate to be so blunt, because I believe everyone should follow their dreams, but I will call a fraud when I see one.  I come in contact with too many gifted musicians to let this slide.  Check it out for yourself:
