ARTISTS WITH ROYAL NAMES: BOW DOWN

I honestly hate posting Prince's music. He always threatens to sue if you post his music and his videos are so hard to find. I just don't get this guy. Guess he really is royalty...i digress. 

QUEEN LATIFAH



LORDE



PRINCE



QUEEN PEN



QUEEN



PRINCESS (Crime Mob)

THROWBACK THEATER: PRETTY IN PINK (1986)

Such a great movie! My favorite scene in the movie is when Duckie danced to Otis Redding's Try A LittleTenderness. I would say you young kids don't know anything about Redding's song but thanks to Kanye West and Jay-Z, you do know how much of a classic record it is. Yes, Pretty In Pink is another John Hughes masterpiece. R.I.P John, you are truly missed.



















Don't mind me, just putting on my executive producer hat. This song would have been perfect for this soundtrack. I see you Bey, congrats on your platinum album.

YOUR LOVER SHOULD BE YOUR BIGGEST FAN!

Note to you anyone in a relationship: your lover should be your biggest fan. If he or she is not your biggest fan, you should not be in a relationship with that person. Words we all should hear when in a relationship...baby, I want to see you win!
















LUCKY STAR- Madonna



NUMBER ONE FAN- R. Kelly


SUPERSTAR- Usher


BIGGEST FAN- Chris Brown



STAR- The Roots

STANCE SOCKS: D-WADE COLLECTION

At first I thought having a sock collection was a bit lame and then Nike came out with its infamous elite socks--- and suddenly I was hooked. Yes, I typically only wear black socks but now I have become intrigued with what socks people are wearing. I absolutely love Stance Socks and now that they have a Dwyane Wade Collection, my addiction has gotten even worse. They tried to make me go to rehab but Isaid...NO NO NO. Bow!

BEATS BY DRE: SUPER BOWL EDITION

Well, this is generous, I mean genius. Every Super Bowl participate will recieve diamond-encrusted Beats By Dre headphones. Wow! Those headphones are boss! The headphones are reportedly worth 25,000 but you didn't hear that from me...

ARTISTS MORE DESERVING OF THE SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW

Doesn't this promo pic of Bruno Mars' Super Bowl halftime show say it all?! Insert *yawn, here. Don't get me wrong, Bruno Mars is talented and he CAN sing---no doubt about that. Let's be real, Bruno Mars is a star but Bruno is not a SUPERstar. So, if Bruno Mars isn't a good choice then what artist would have been better...well, Lady Gaga was the first artist to come to mind. My heart is also telling me it is time the Super Bowl Halftime Committee considers FINALLY allowing a rapper to headline the show. As a matter of fact, the time is well overdue. Who wouldn't want to see Jay-Z headline the halftime show? I know I would love it!!! Here are some other artists who would be better options than Mr. Bruno Mars. I do feel bad Bruno has to perform the year after Queen Beyonce shut it DOWN last year. #TurnTheLightsOut


LADY GAGA



USHER



KATY PERRY



JAY-Z

SNEAKERHEADS: WHAT'S NEW AT NICEKICKS

See what's new at the NiceKicks store. I had the green pair of the Nike Air Trainer Max '94 when I was in high school, I loved those shoes. I have to get another pair. Watching these NiceKicks videos always puts me in a trance lol. I see you Lebron, those Grafitti shoes are killing the shoe game right now.

THESE RAPPERS NEED TO END THEIR BEEF TOO

I guess the year 2014 is not about getting money, it must be the year of forgiveness. First, 50 Cent and Fat Joe ended their beef. And now Rick Ross and Young Jeezy have decided to put an end to their feud. Much respect to all of these rappers for getting their grown men on. Here are some other feuds I hope will soon come to an end. Peace not beef...

LIL KIM x FOXY BROWN














50 CENT x RICK ROSS

















WAKA FLOCKA x GUCCI MANE















50 CENT x THE GAME













MEEK MILL x CASSIDY














Big ups to the men who started this peace movement in hip hop

SHOCKING SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THESE RAPPERS AND THESE MOVIE CHARACTERS

This post is by far my favorite post of all time. I have been thinking about doing this post for a while but I had to get my mind right so I could deliver the best for you guys. I may be getting ahead of myself but I don't think anyone or any other blog has ever done a post like this. If you haven't seen these movies/series, then you won't understand this post at all---so don't bother reading it. It feels good to push the envelope every now and then...

JAY-Z AND SAM ROTHSTEIN (Casino)













Both men are all about business and very well-respected. They are considered to be nice guys and mild-mannered, unless you cross them the wrong way. If you betray them, you will regret it for the rest of your life. They both married a gorgeous, strong, and independent woman who makes her own money and can hold her own. Both men are loyal to a fault and that loyalty can prove to be detrimental to their careers.














RICK ROSS AND TONY SOPRANO















Both men are well-respected by their peers because they …

YOUR'E NO ANGEL MUSIC!

Be careful who you fall in love with because that so-called ANGEL can turn into Lucifer in the blink of an eye. In the words of the great Oprah, when someone shows you who they are the first time, believe them. Words to live by...
And you thought Brillion-A-Million was all about entertainment. I just hit you with some powerful love advice. Bow! Dr. Love is in the building. If you are thinking I did this post just as an excuse to post some Beyonce music, you know me all too well. Haaaa!
NO ANGEL- BEYONCE

ANGELS- DIDDY x DIRTY MONEY 

ANGEL IN DISGUISE- BRANDY

I'M NO ANGEL- DIDO

FALLEN ANGEL- POISON

SUPERBOWL XLVIII IS SET: Seahawks vs Broncos

Well, I may have hoped the 49ers and the Broncos would play in the Superbowl, but I am not mad at all that the Seahawks will be playing the Broncos instead. I can't WAIT until February 2! The only thing that can ruin this great game will be the snow. 













If you remember, I predicted Peyton Manning and the Broncos will win the Superbowl this year, and although it won't be shocking if they do win, the truth is, I just love being right. Haaaa!

SINGERS WHO WERE BORN IN THE WRONG ERA

All of these artists are great---unfortunately they were born in the wrong era. In Sharon Jones' case, her success came later in life. I can guarantee if any of these artists were born in the 50's or 60's they would be HUGE superstars. Berry Gordy would have signed every last one of them to his Motown record label. Instead, they are at the bottom of the music food chain and quite frankly, they shouldn't be. If no one else recognizes your greatness, I sure do. Much respect to all of you for stepping outside of the norm and staying true to your old school roots (must have all been jazz/blues singers in your past lifetime).

LEBRON SHOULDN'T UNLEASH THE BEAST YET

Lebron James was recently accused of "coasting" through the regular season this year. Yes, his numbers are down. His rebound rate dropped for the first time in five seasons. Assist rate? His lowest in eight seasons (32.4 percent of his teammates' baskets while on the floor). Steal rate? Never been lower. Block rate? Career-low as well. Outside of shot-making, all of the good things are down. Turnovers, on the other hand, are up to career-high levels.

In reality, Lebron is the ONLY player who has the ability to turn it off and on. You know, that on-and-off switch that coaches hate because it can't be coached. If Lebron's numbers are down, it's because he knows this is just the regular season. If he wants to, he can light-it-up ANY given night and average 35 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 assists...with his eyes closed.



Lebron answered his critics by saying "We'll see Wednesday how I'm coasting," James said jokingly as he made his way into the Hea…

THROWBACK THEATER: HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS (1987)

I guess I could have put Harry and The Hendersons on my list of great movies that were made into television shows. Oddly enough, I don't even remember the TV show smh. Either way, this movie was another Steven Spielberg (executive producer) classic to add to his collection of greatness.

15 GREAT ACTORS WITHOUT OSCARS

Wow! It's quite shocking these great actors have never won an Academy Award but I was completely stunned actress Glen Close has never won.

REWIND WEDNESDAY: SOLO- WHERE DO YOU WANT ME TO PUT IT

The R&B group Solo were sooo talented yet very underrated. I loved their first CD, self-entitled Solo. The lead singer had such a powerful and unique voice.
