ALL APOLOGIES MUSIC: I'M SORRY

I'm holding on your rope. Got me ten feet off the ground. And I'm hearing what you say. But I just can't make a sound. You tell me that you need me. Then you go and cut me down. But wait...You tell me that you're sorry. Didn't think I'd turn around and say..That it's too late to apologize, it's too late. I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late. I'd take another chance, take a fall, take a shot for you. And I need you like a heart needs a beat (But that's nothing new). Yeah yeah. I loved you with a fire red, now it's turning blue. And you say. Sorry like the Angel Heaven let me think was you. But I'm afraid. #OneRepublic

FREAKY FRIDAY: 50 CENT- JUST A LIL BIT

Decided to change it up a lil bit and post a rap song this week for Freaky Friday. It wasn't easy finding a rap song that wasn't too explicit. Lawd! Those songs would have gotten me shut down. Google ain't having that lol. I don't know why I find it funny when 50 Cent does sexual music...

WEIRDEST HOMES IN THE WORLD

THROWBACK THURSDAY THEATER: DO THE RIGHT THING (1989)

Do The Right Thing is such a powerful movie. It is based in Brooklyn, New York during the 80's. Lee shows us that even in a diverse neighborhood like Brooklyn, segregation and racism still exists. And no matter how different we may all appear, we all experience the same trials and tribulations. Amazingly, Spike Lee wrote the screenplay in just two weeks. Genius!

DOPE DESIGNER PILLOWS: D3ADSTOCK AVE

How great would these throw pillows look on your couch? This was a genius idea to put pop culture moments on a pillow and I am definitely going to buy a few pillows. It definitely can add flavor to any living room sofa or even something cool to display on your bed. Much respect to the individuals over at D3adstock Ave. #DareToBeDifferent

FUNNIEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME: TOP 10

I have probably seen more than half of these movies thousands of times, and I still fall out laughing as if it was my first time hearing the jokes. Laughter has always been my remedy; it keeps me young and sane. When people ask how I maintain my six-pack abs, I tell them laughter. Of course, they laugh, but it's true. Haaaaaa! By the way, for those people who don't understand the "Bye Felicia" memes, you obviously have never seen the movie Friday.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF BOW WOW: PART II

Yes, I know I called him Bow Wow. In due time, I'll refer to him as Shad Moss lol. It took me a while to stop calling him Lil Bow Wow too but I eventually stopped. Bow Wow is getting that television money now, I'm surprised he's still doing music. YMCMB!

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES MUSIC: LOST LOVE FILES

I know it's been some time. But there's something on my mind. You see, I haven't been the same. Since that cold November day...We said we needed space. But all we found was an empty place. And the only thing I learned. Is that I need you desperately...So here I am. And can you please tell me... oh. Where do brokenhearts go.Can they find their way home. Back to the open arms. Of a love that's waiting there. And if somebody loves you.Won't they always love you. I look in your eyes. And I know that you still care, for me. #WhitneyHouston

NO AUTO-TUNE TUESDAY: BEYONCE

We Beyonce super fans have been on a quest for over a decade to label her the Queen of Pop & B, and I am more than elated to see her at the top of the music world ( it's about time the rest of the world finally caught up). She is the Queen B! Beyonce is on her own planet; a Pop goddess to say the least. You deserve every bit of your success Bey. Much love!

SHOULD JOHN CALIPARI BE KICKING HIMSELF?!

Yes! Coach John Calipari should feel awful for turning down the Cleveland Cavaliers head coaching job back in June. At first, no one argued Calipari turning down a 10-year contract worth nearly $80 million to stay and coach in Kentucky...but oh what a difference a "decision" makes. Now that Lebron James has decided to return home and play for the Cavs, Calipari must be sick to his stomach. Lawd! He could have coached the greatest player in the NBA!!!

ARTIST WATCH: JUNE3RD x YUNG POPPY- TOUCHDOWN

Someone told me Touchdown is the summer anthem and so I had to take a listen. I must admit, the song is dope. It has a melodic California vibe to it; definitely an infectious radio-ready song. Shout out to rapper June3RD, you're up next kid. Buy Touchdown on iTunes and support independent artists. Much respect June!

SNEAKERHEADS: RUDY GAY'S SNEAKER ROOM

NBA baller Ray Gay has a sick sneaker collection. I love how he color-coordinated all of his shoes lol. Who else noticed Rudy has about 3 or 4 pairs of the same shoes (silently whispers OCD to myself ). I understand; if your shoes get dirty, no need in cleaning them, just buy another pair. Ball till you fall...

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF JHENE AIKO

THROWBACK THURSDAY THEATER: WHAT ABOUT BOB? (1991)

What About Bob is strangely annoying and hilarious at the same time. I love the plot twist at the end. No, I'm not telling you what the plot twist is. I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen the movie. Don't you just hate watching a movie with someone who has already seen it and they tell what happens in the movie?! Drives me crazy! Speaking of crazy, What About Bob?That was a smooth transition. I'm sure I just made my English professors proud lol.

THE ROSE THAT GREW FROM CONCRETE MUSIC

This poem was written by the legendary Tupac Shakur. The Rose That Grew From Concrete has inspired me a great deal. It's amazing what we can become if we believe in ourselves. No matter if you were born in poverty and society has labeled you a failure, you can be whatever you aspire to be.

REWIND WEDNESDAY: 702- GET IT TOGETHER

When you think of female R&B trios, I'm sure TLC and Destiny's Child are the first groups that come to your mind; but please don't forget about 702. These girls were really talented and they had some big R&B hits. Get It Together was one of my favorites! Respect is due...

2014 NBA SUMMER LEAGUE BASKETBALL

If someone asked me to describe NBA Summer League basketball, I would say...it's not as entertaining as the NBA and not better than college basketball. But it damn sure is better than watching NBDL basketball lol.

GREATEST GANGSTER MOVIES: TOP 10

I love gangster movies. There's something intriguing about watching criminals live a life I'll never live and hopefully never witness. What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of f*ckin' a**holes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your f*ckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy!
