Chris Brown is in Russell Simmons office trying to figure out away to become relevant, again. It’s hard trying to make a comeback when you don’t have the support of radio. It sounds like Chris Brown needs to start over and do some ground work. He is no longer the cute talented kid, but a flawed man in the eyes of many people. So he has to promote himself like he’s a new artist.
Here is a picture of Chris Brown in Russell Simmons’ office, tweeted by Russell Simmons; followed by a statement from Chris Brown, asking for support from his fans. Unlike most men he’s admitted his mistakes and has asked for forgiveness.
Swizz Beatz is caught on tape speaking about divorce to singer Mashonda. His logic is that one person, Alicia Keys, can’t destroy ten years of marriage. Ummm, yes they can if they’re cheating with your husband. Why bring this up, unless you feel some kind of guilt or shame? Swizz Beatz is just as bad as Mashonda. You won Swizz, let it go…
There is a lot he said/she said. My question is, if Swizz Beatz wasn’t cheating, why did Mashonda feel the need to go through his phone. Why were people in industry already talking a bout it and it turned out to be true? Women go through phones, when they feel you’re not on the up and up, not to set you up. I’m sorry, but his story sounds like he’s running game. Why didn’t he just leave before he got caught, no what I’m saying…
Now that Swizz Beatz has Alicia Keys, Mashonda is now a “scram”. Wow. I was trying to be positive and give him the benefit of the doubt.

How Making An Unrealistic List for the Man of Your Dreams Stops You From Actually Finding Him
He’s gotta be black. Tall, or at least taller than me. He’s gotta have a high paying job. He’s gotta have a 4 year degree. He’s gotta make me a priority 99% of the time. He has to like my family. He has to believe in God in exactly the same way I do. He’s gotta be physically strong. He has to be a certain age. He has to be fine. He has to be liked by everyone. He has to dress well. He has to be a lil’ hood, but also sensitive at the same time. He has to love the things that I love.
Let me know when you find one man who meets ALL of these expectations. And when you DON’T, let’s start talking the real talk. The first thing you need to do is take your favorite lipstick and cross out 50% of your “list” and then you’ve just come up with a more realistic idea of what the love of your life should look like.
With all the music, movies, urban legends and the looking on everyone else’s plate, I get why women have this delusion of what a “real man” should be. But ladies, women, girls…we will continue to fly solo if we don’t change our perspective.
Prince Charming died on the way to the real world. He doesn’t exist.
Being realistic doesn’t mean lowering your expectations. It means adjusting it. Being realistic means understanding that when a man and a woman choose each other, they are two completely individual human beings with varied tastes, likes and dislikes, beliefs, visions, desires and physicality. If you’re looking for someone who will meet every desire that you have, date YOURSELF. Otherwise, let’s join the rest of our happily dating and married friends.
When I talk to my single friends about why they’re single, most of them say that they’re afraid of “settling” for less than they deserve. So, the ultimate question becomes, “What Do You Deserve?” I can answer that for you. You deserve loyalty. Someone responsible (but not without error). Fidelity. Acceptance. Honesty. You deserve for someone to tell you when you’re wrong. Above all, you deserve someone who will walk shoulder to shoulder with you, hand in hand, through all the curve balls that life throws at you.
When your skin starts to sag, your stretch marks become more visible, you’re less pretty, gain weight, get too skinny, lose your job, experience death with family or friends, on your menstrual cycle, no longer get your menstrual cycle, have depression, lose confidence, become irrelevant to the world….if the man sitting in front of you can look you in the eyes and say he’s still in love with you…you’ve just hit the jackpot.
Celebrity sightings all over the place. Amber Rose still proving that she’s got it, and always gives us a little something to talk about. Check out Amber Rose in her leggings rocking the “pink pumps”. I Love how her make-up matches her accessories.

LeToya Luckett, my favorite ex-Destiny’s Child member, was spotted at the Highline Ballroom in NYC in her little black dress. Slim Thug also admitted on twitter of all places, that the reason him and LeToya Luckett broke up was because he cheated on her, and here’s the kicker: got another girl pregnant during the process. Oh well, he looks like his lost:
Our favorite diva, Whitney Houston was spotted in Beverly Hills on Bedford Drive. Other than the wig, she looks healthier. Honestly, it just may have been the wig that made her look so wild. Check out pictures of Whitney Houston before she went to the doctor’s office and after.
