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. That man’s vocal chords were clearly coated with Heaven’s ambrosia and dusted with angel St. Michael’s wings because it was amazing.

Diane Warren Tweets Note About “True Greats” to Kanye West. WELP!

No one can love Kanye West as much as Kanye West loves Kanye West, and that is a gift. I mean, the man’s newest album is titled “Yeezus.” He clearly has high self-esteem and places himself on a giant pedestal only he can see. Who else could go onstage looking like …

Rihanna is Charging $250 for a CD. FAH WUT?

Rihanna went as weed for Halloween and I thought that was per her usual “Doing the Most” that we’ve come to expect, tolerate but not love from her. She’s hellbent on letting us know that she’s a rebel. She will grab our faces, wear the t-shirt, color her hair aubergine …

What is the Dancery that Mary J. Blige Was Talmbout?

You know Mary J. Blige’s hit song “Family Affair” and I bet you’ve jammed to it many a times at parties or in your house. I’ve definitely hit my Mary bop on countless occasions because that song goes so hard in the paint. But I’ve always wondered things about the …
