Kanye West’s Voice on Kris Jenner’s Show Has Me Perplexed

We all know that the Kanye West of now is a completely different man from the Late Registration and College Dropout Kanye. We need to get used to this version of him putting out Yeezus.

Dear E! News, Lee Thompson Young’s Death and Yoruba “Religion” Link is Irresponsible

E! News is reporting that Lee Thompson Young’s suicide may have been result of his involvement with “Yoruba religion.” I’m reporting that they’re idiots. It’s pretty ballsy to insinuate this and it’s the biggest crock of bullshit. Methinks it demonizes Yoruba people as advocates for suicide. It’s irresponsible, full of bigotry and plays into the “Africans are barbaric” trope.

Harper’s Bazaar Sabotaged Gabourey Sidibe With This Outfit

I’m glad that people are giving half of a damb about Black women in TV and movies now. We’re showing up on more mainstream covers (well Kerry Washington is), and maybe Hollywood is finally realizing how much we rock (psht). But one thing I don’t like is lazy inclusion. Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue includes a […]

When He Said Goodbye, It WAS For Long: Remembering Luther Vandross

Today is the 8th anniversary of Luther Vandross passing, and chile… he is STILL missed.

Luther Vandross took old songs and when he sang them, folks forgot the originals. It was HIS. And I […]

Another day, another celebrity being dropkicked off their pedestal. I woke up to find out that Paula Deen, the Matron Saint of Butter and Diabeetus Diet is a grade A racist.
