A Letter to Michael: Moonwalking on the Clouds

My kids WILL know that “Billie Jean” was not your lover while “Jam”ming. We won’t “Stop Till We Get Enough”. Michael, you made “HIStory” and that is undeniable.

BET Awards 2008 Was Actually Good!

“It was so awesome, I changed my draws twice.” – Ig SubWood (about BET AWARDS) Dare I say it, the 2008 BET Awards was actually pretty good. Unlike years past, when the only things I could remember was the high level of coonery and buffoonery, this year’s award actually had …

Another CRAPPY Awards Show

So tonight was the much-hyped MTV Video Music Awards, and as always, it didn’t live up to it. The hype was so big that anything short of Michael Jackson coming out in the show with a black face would have made it disappointing. However, there was much help from the …
