Check Out Nicki Minaj's Super Hwot Cover on Vibe Magazine!

 Oh my Gosh!! Nicki Minaj is featured on the Feb/March issue of Vibe magazine and I must say she looks "Hwot"!! The photo shoot and interview are a part of a promotional campaign for her new album "Pink Friday: Roman reloaded". Nicki also shares some interesting view points with Vibe about her past and future work.

VIBE: You’ve said before that you didn’t really have fun recording Pink Friday.
Nicki Minaj: I felt like I had something to prove to everyone who said a female rapper could not make an album unless she was talking about her pussy. And so I went above and beyond to prove that I could not talk about sex and not talk about my genitalia and still have a successful album. And I proved that. And now my time for proving things to my critics is over. I don’t really need to prove anything to anyone else anymore.

Is it still hard to get your way as a woman in this industry?
Nicki Minaj: It’s not hard to get your way when it’s your way or the highway. People either follow suit or they’re not around. I don’t really like the sound of that, ‘cause that sounds like a temper tantrum. I’m just very black and white when it comes to my business. There’s really no gray area. I really don’t have a lot of small talk with people I work with. It’s pretty much let’s get the job done. In the beginning, if people didn’t know me they’d probably assume I wasn’t smart or wasn’t business savvy. But once you sit and talk to me, it’s a different story.

You were heavy on the fashion scene last year around Fashion Week with Anna Wintour. Do you feel like you’ve been accepted by the fashion world? 
Nicki Minaj:Yeah, I realized more recently that even if it’s for a fashion magazine, I’m not gonna change who I am. When I was doing photo shoots last year, I kept on being told, “This is what we want your hair to look like and this is what we want you to look like,” and it really, really stifled my creativity. So the other day I was talking to a photographer, and he said, “You know what, I like your everyday looks so much better than when you do photo shoots for magazines.” And I was like, “So do I, you’re absolutely right.” I’d been getting more and more frustrated for a while.

Singer/ Actress Whitney Houston Dies at 48

It is sad to report that the Queen of Music, Whitney Houston dies at age 48; details to her death are still unclear. Publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause of her death is unknown. Houston's lifeless body was discovered in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by a member of her entourage.

At the young age of 48, Whitney leaves the world with an endless list of music and talent, from studio to cinema. Despite numerous obstacles (no need to mention), Whitney Houston began her career as a top selling artist in the early 80's well into the year 2000. She always stole the show with her impeccable talent and beauty.

Whitney Houston was destined for musical greatness; it was in her genes. She was the daughter of gospel singer Cissy Houston, the cousin of 1960s pop diva Dionne Warwick and the goddaughter of Aretha Franklin.

My Condolences go out to mother Cissy Houston and Bobbi Kristina for their lost. Whitney Houston's legacy will continue on forever, influencing many up and coming artist. The world will remember her always and forever. A true musical genius... Rest in Peace Whitney Houston.

The New York Giants Super Bowl Victory!

 Blue and White are truly the colors of a sweet victory! Like most people I was glued to my set, munching on goodies as watched the Giants win The Super Bowl! And like most people I had to work and could not make it down to see the parade. It is approximated that close to 1 million fans gathered in the Big Apple today to help celebrate the New York Giants' Super Bowl Victory!

Eli  Manning, the super bowl MVP, held the Lombardi trophy high for cheering fans to see. Coach Tom Coughlin, Bloomberg, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other teammates, waved and grinned from the float as a deep roar rose from the crowds. "All things are possible for those who believe,"  Coach Coughlin said. "We always believed."

This is actually the second Super Bowl championship parade for the Giants in four years. They beat the Patriots in the NFL title game in 2008. Bloomberg asked the crowd today: "Are you feeling deja blue all over again?" *Don't quit your day job Bloomberg*

What was your favorite Super Bowl moment???

Unarmed Bronx Teen fatally shot by Cops

The Bronx community comes together in numbers to protest the police shooting of Ramarley Graham.
18-year old Ramarley Graham was shot this past Thursday by narcotics cops who claimed the young teen had a gun. Surveillance video show the teen running in fear into his home on 229th street with Police hot on his heels. The Bronx teen was unarmed and shot by police in the presence of his grandmother and 6-year old brother.

To add insult to injury, Graham's Grandmother, Patricia Hartley was later taken into custody and held for 7 hours while being denied access to her heart medication.

500 plus demonstrators attended a rally to call for an end to police brutality.

"We are human beings. Stop treating us like animals," Frank Graham the slain teen's father, told the crowd. "My son did nothing wrong. I want justice for my son, my baby."

I am angered by this story...Ramarley Graham did not have to die! Unfortunately this is one of many stories in where minority men and women are "mistakenly" killed by police because they saw a gun or weapon.These modern day lynching have to stop!!

Let us address the fact that there are a  handful of racist closed minded "cops" that make it bad for the entire Police Force. Many of these officers are just plain scared, walking around with shaky trigger fingers.

An officers job is to protect and serve the community. How can they achieve this, when the bonds of trust are broken?? Shooting an unarmed man is a deplorable act!! Something has to be done!!

What do you think about this madness??? Remember....
