This years Video Music Awards will go down Sunday August 24th at The Forum in Inglewood, CA and it looks like it’ll be another epic show with Usher and Ariana Grande already confirmed to perform. However, the talk of this year’s show is none other than Queen Bey as she leads with a total of eight nominations. Some of these nominations to name a few include “Drunk In Love” for Video of the Year and Best Collaboration, “Partition” for Best Female and much more. August may not be here yet, but I guess it’s safe to say that Beyonce just may take home a great amount of those awards.

Therefore, it was only right that he released the official music video for his single “Benediction” featuring Rick Ross off of his Testimony album. With much success it’s pretty fitting that he shares his past struggles and shows us the road he took to his success.

Critics’ Choice TV Awards For ‘Most Exciting New Series’ Show Little Diversity; But Halle Berry Makes The Cut!

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Posted by Brian, TV Shows, Videos | Comments Off

It’s easy to get lost in the hundreds of TV and movie awards shows in existence in this country. From the Oscars to the MTV Movie Awards to the Young Hollywood Awards; coming up in August (I joke not) the X-Rated Critics Organization’s Heart-On Awards. I could put in a joke about big egos here, but they’ve stopped being funny a long, long time ago. Sort of like the Scary Movie franchise.

Anyway, one of the litany of awards shows that have managed to rise above the fray in terms of respectability and attention since debuting in 2010 is the Critics Choice TV Awards. Although the show airs next Thursday night on the CW (hosted by the sometimes-funny Cedric the Entertainer), the Broadcast Television Journalists Association revealed the seven TV shows selected for their Most Exciting New Series category. And here they are (below):

Audra McDonald Makes History Playing Billie Holiday; First To Win Six Tony Awards; Watch Tearful Speech

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Honors, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Celebrity Theater | Comments Off

Audra McDonald, 43, one of my celebrity look-a-likes, has just made history with her work as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. She takes home the Tony for best lead actress in a play; her sixth win. Previously Audra McDonald was tied with Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris for most awards won, but last night she shatters through the ceiling becoming the biggest winner in the history of the Tonys, she just happens to be black. Audra also makes history for winning the top award in four different performance categories.

The latest win — for best lead actress in a play — also makes McDonald the only woman to win a Tony in all four acting categories. She previously won as best featured actress in a play (“A Raisin in the Sun” and “Master Class”), best lead actress in a musical (“The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess”) and best featured actress in a musical (“Ragtime” and “Carousel”). {Source}

Of course, the woman with the most technical and beautiful voice, gives a tearful, emotional speech that is worthy of a standing ovation. We write about a lot of celebrities, but this woman here is classy, dignified, intelligent, graceful, and beautiful. From the first time I saw a special on ABC about her over a decade ago, I have been in love with her journey and her poise. People like Audra are the people we need to seek and support. IJS, Kanye she’s famous with a purpose.

In her speech she thanks all of the [black] women before her who knocked down these doors. Check out her tearful acceptance speech below:
