Missy & The Tale of Much Needed Comebacks

February 3rd, 2015

missy eSo unless you live in an igloo or on Bikini Bottom somewhere with Spongebob Squarepants, chances are if you didn’t watch, you at least heard about the Superbowl this past Sunday.

More specifically, the Halftime show. Missy Elliott‘s Halftime show.

Okay, actually the headline belong to that of singer Katy Perry, whom overall did a good job alongside the likes of Lenny Kravitz, fun outfits, lots of production, dancing sharks and THAT. LION. You better roar, girl.katy perryBut the true steal of the show was the return of THE Missy Elliott. And she killed it.yasssssssPersonally, Missy Elliott is my second female rapper and she brought all the jams. The moment that beat dropped in full effect for ‘Get Your Freak On’ I hopped off that couch and almost shoulder popped my ass directly into the E.R. Missy’s music has always had that effect, and it felt good to have even a pinch of that back.

And clearly from the feedback, I’m not the only one who felt that way.missy3missy2But then, there were others the kids with no real education in music.missy statusLike, I almost can’t even deal.

unfriendT.L.C.”Wasn’t she in TLC”. TLC?!!!!!!!!!!!

bye bye byeT L fucking C.i cantWhatever the reason of lack on knowledge of this talented woman, I hope these children have cancelled their entire week to spend getting their damn life on Google, Wikipedia and countless videos/albums of that one Miss Elliott. And I mean the entire week. Get up on those beats, the lyrics, THE OUTFITS, the choreography, and those video concepts that we just don’t see in today’s world. GET. YOUR. LIFE.

And as far as Missy herself is concerned, ma’am we need a new album like TONIGHT. I want to wake up and be blessed up in my iTunes on a Wednesday morning.blog happy

So amongst the return of Missy Elliott, her appearance sparked up conversation and thoughts of several other celebs who need to get the one way ticket out of oblivion.

Tuesday Tidbits: Previews of NOAP

September 16th, 2014

tuesday tidbits

I didn’t sleep well last night.

And while it could be that I have the sleep pattern of a psychopath, have 22,000 items still left on my to-do list, trash on trash television programs patiently waiting for me on my DVR to watch, 2 books I’m currently reading, wondering what James Franco is up to in a very moment, etc. etc. etc.

Last night, however, I’m going to blame lack of  sleep on this bitch.

conjuring-doll-annabellegiphyYou’ve probably have started to see previews for the upcoming film Annabelle, which is the prequel to The Conjuring and follows the story of a couple who begin to experience supernatural incidents involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.

Now, listen. It’s known I have a fiery love for all things Horror films, but let me have a moment of honesty.

Antique dolls creep me out. I can watch Child’s Play all day and not blink an eye, but those old school dolls? Hand me my purse, because I’m out.

My spirit still isn’t right from Dead Silence.

dead_silence_3prayerAnd that was 7 years ago.

Now here comes this damn doll’s cousin Annabelle twerking all over my peace with her creepiness. To me, she was the scariest part of The Conjuring and she was only in the film for a grand total of probably about 15 minutes. She scared the hell out of us, got her check and bounced, and returning to terrorize in 30 seconds or less until next month. And yes, I’m the girl that changes the commercial every time she arrives on my television and puts on the channel with all the church programs or The Disney Channel. Annabelle wouldn’t DARE step in Mickey’s house with that shit.

Arriving in my face also, is another story.

bitch slap

Don’t make me call Chucky, girl.

Despite my punk ass feelings toward her, will I be in attendance for the Annabelle premiere?

DUH.

Scream out in theaters with this idiot when Annabelle hits theaters everywhere October 3rd.

Twitter & Blue Ivy Saved Us All: The 2014 VMA Recap

August 25th, 2014

The MTV Video Music Awards are nowhere close to what they used to be. We know this. But every year we continue to watch and wait for at least one hair flipping glimmer of hope, and until then we turn to social media to help cope through it all.

If you experience in particular live Twitter, you must so during an awards show. There’s barely anything in this world better. Except for alcohol after a rough day. And day’s off.  Early pay day deposits. Seeing an ex do bad without you.  A really good ass cheese platter. And an actual life.

Okay, so there’s a lot still greater but there’s no other way to spend the end of summer than wasting 3 hours to watch one of the most talked about events every year and The Beyonce’ concert VMAs was once again leaving topics, and tweets, up for discussion.

Thank you, Mr. Williams

August 12th, 2014

5cd92fb354aaaedfa83a0a239af6c576As the news is fully out there, the world is still rocked by yesterday’s announcement of the death of actor, comedian, screenwriter and producer Robin Williams. Williams for most has been admired and raved for his incredible range of talent in films like Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, One Hour Photo, and an on and on going list that could NOT be completed without Mrs. Doubtfire.  Robin Williams’ work has touched the universe in one way or another for his talent, but most importantly what is most tragic is that he seemed like a genuine, humble, all around nice human being despite the fact that he publicly and privately battled his own personal demons. Celebrity deaths are nothing rare but this, like the death of Paul Walker and Marilyn Burns to name a few, truly hit me in one way or another. For Robin, as one of my favorite actors it was never a piece of work of his I didn’t like or completely get lost in–he had the amazing ability to make us laugh, root for him and even in some works scare us all at a drop of a hat(If you haven’t seen One Hour Photo rent it NOW). And always taught those who looked up to him it was okay to be weird and eccentric and forever think outside of the normal. Thank you, Mr. Williams, may your talents forever live on and may you finally be at peace.

Shade vs Reading

January 21st, 2014

Real-Housewives-of-AtlantaI LOVE my fair portion of trash reality television, and Real Housewives of Atlanta definitely does not miss the plate. This season thus far has been an interesting one with Porsha’s divorce, Mama Joyce’s hatred for Todd, and whether or not Kenya actually did offer to “suck Apollo’s wee-wee”. I wish I was making some of this shit up.

On one of the more recent episodes cast member Nene Leakes brought along one of her friends Mynique to a group gathering where she was later then schooled on the fundamentals of throwing shade and reading.

No, not that kind of reading.

  • Shade: acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone a.k.a “throwing shade”.
  • Read: To tell someone about themself, as in “Don’t do it bitch, I will read your ass”.

Bitch don't comeShade throwing and serving a good read–you either know it or you don’t. Personally it’s not something that can be taught, especially in the span of a few minutes and then be put up against almost the entire cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta–because chances are you won’t be ready.

However, let’s get with the Gawds and break this all down: Get your glasses handy because the library is officially open, honey chile.
