Check out Ishuz Entertainment tonight at Jak’s tap, 901 W Jackson, for their show, “Afrodisiology 101.” If you’re into Rihanna, Kim Zolciak or other “singers” who can’t really sing, then this […]

Are criticisms of Oprah’s new network out of ignorance?

On Sunday, Jan. 2, Oprah Winfrey made history, introducing the highly anticipated Oprah Winfrey Network, or OWN for short. The network features rich content from a variety of Oprah’s “all-stars,” including Suze Orman, Dr. Phil and and even the queen herself.

Hands down, Kanye West wins as the 2010 Artist of the Year. After a brief European sabbatical, following the Taylor Swift incident, West bounced back with the release of “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” The album’s perfect arrangements, complete with West’s trademark witty lyrics made it a hit.

This lyrical and musical genius has never received the respect he deserves in his own hometown, yet he is highly respected in nearly every […]

While I love Kanye West in all of his arrogant glory, I can’t help but be put off by the fact that he seems to be among the growing number of successful black men who feel that only a non-African American woman is worth their time. According to one of my favorite bloggers, Sandra Rose, […]

I wasn’t shocked when I read this article on Slate.com about the Kardashian’s latest money-making ploy.  I have a love-hate relationship with this family. While I am enamored by their stylish ways and witty attitudes, I am confused as to how they were catapulted to fame after the release of Kim’s sex tape with Ray J, […]
