Yeah, I said it. YOLO! Last night was Lifetime’s movie Betty and Coretta about Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King, wives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. They were played by Mary J. Blige (who also executive produced) and Angela Bassett. Y’all know Angela can act so good she’d …

My Entire Opinion on Bey’s Inauguration Lip-sync Thing

Beyoncé lip-synched AND sang live at the Inauguration. This isn’t rare when folks have to sing in the cold outside. The bottom line is what we heard came out her mouth. Why are folks tripping? Get your lives. Can we stop talking about this now? Please? Thank you. The end. …

20 Dumbest Celebrity Tweets of 2012

Most celebrities aren’t famous because they’re the smartest. They just happen to be good at something. Or they’re attention whores. When they get on Twitter, they show all their basicness and I’m sure their publicists are somewhere weeping in the name of fail. This is why this list is necessary, …

Stevie Wonder Would Play At Harpo’s Juke Joint and I’ont Like It

I’ve always been a Stevie Wonder fan. I know all his songs and I love him. He is a genius. But his PR team is not. A couple of years ago, I wrote a sternly-worded letter to Stevie Wonder telling him to fire his team because they don’t want the …
