The New Boyz came on to the entertainment scene with their hit song “You’re A Jerk” that topped many charts for several weeks. Well now the guys are back with this hit single off their new album Too Cool to Care which will be released May 10, 2011. Check out the behind the scenes video which also features Dev and The Cataracs.

This song will definitely be playing in the clubs for a while.. Now that you’ve seen the behind the scenes with the winners fromt he radio stations and all, check out the official video.

Ashton Kutcher, one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE celebrities, is looking for a VP of Pop Culture! I’ve been watching Ashton Kutcher since That 70’s Show and I’ve seen EVERY movie he’s been in, most recently No Strings Attached (love it!). Anyway, about the competition… Candidates have to be technology savvy.. Twitter, Facebook, any media outlets.. such as blogs.. like mine! The job pays $50,000! That is music to my ears!

Check out this video promotion of the competition for the job position.

The body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal is possessed naturally by only 5% of American females. (source: www.anad.org)

The media portrays views that women [and men] should look, dress, and talk a certain way in order to be accepted by the “general public.” What people fail to realize is that the way the media makes people look is only attained through dieting, surgery, and eating disorders; minus those 5% who naturally became such. Why is it then that so many aspire to be that way? It is not healthy. Dieting is not bad. Surgery is not bad. But once a person crosses the line of improving their health to obsessing over their looks.. a problem has begun.

Many people go through life unsatisfied with who they are and they make changes to fix that feeling. However, in most cases, people lose sight of their own personal goals and suddenly they are trying to please everyone else. So they change their hair, their style of clothing, lose weight (most times by developing an eating disorder), the crowd they hang with (while leaving “true friends” behind), and the list continues. Although the media will not change overnight, it has become the duty of parents, educators, role models to step in and affect change. Youth look up to those whom they wish to be like. If those idols have drug habits, eating disorders, or life altering changes that damage their reputation, it is accounted for. The old saying “even when you think no one’s looking, someone always is” is certainly in effect. It doesn’t matter if you are a rock star, public figure, parent, teacher, older sibling or whatever, someone is always watching you and learning from the things you do and the decisions you make.

It is very important to realize that you can’t force someone to “do the right thing.” The right thing for them may be completely different from what was right for you. However, there are things that are wrong across the board.. common sense. Developing drug/alcohol habits clearly doesn’t lead to a positive outcome. Eating disorders challenge people’s mental state and can ultimately take their lives. Crime also falls along that line. Setting a good example is really the push that anyone needs. Showing support whether you agree with their aspirations or not is also VERY important. If you’re a doctor, scientist, or lawyer and you have a child who wants to pursue theater, music or dance, don’t discourage them. That’s the fastest way to push them in the wrong direction. They might very well find someone else who is a great example and will support them but are willing to take a chance that they might get in with the wrong crowd?

If you’re someone who hasn’t had a good influence, you’re struggling with an eating disorder or drug/alcohol related addiction, you feel like you’ve  never been “good enough”… know that there are people out there with similar problems and people out there who will help you. But you have to want to do better FOR YOURSELF first. The media will always be there looking for the dirtiest story but it’s up to US to affect change.

Be a good influence. Support your loved ones. Do the “right thing.”


The inspiration for this piece came from watching this video by recording artist, Pink called “F**kin Perfect”. Check it out!

NEWER ARTIST ON THE SCENE.. DEFINITELY MAKING A STATEMENT.. MIKE POSNER!

I ENCOURAGE EVERY LOCAL ARTIST.. WHETHER SINGER, DANCER, RAPPER.. TO GET DOWN THERE NOVEMBER 20th AND PUT YOUR TALENT OUT THERE.

NO MORE TIME TO SLACK OFF.. IF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IS WHERE YOUR PASSION LIES.. GET TO WORK!!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THOSE WHO MAKE IT OUT THERE FOR THE AUDITION!


So Chris Brown is getting back on the scene.. not to say he ever left but we all know that society kind of shunned him a little after the incident with Rihanna. Anyway, he’s making changes to his sound left and right. Rapping.. more pop.. everything. My roommate and I were listening to this song and she said that this song “Yeah 3x” doesn’t work for Mr. Chris Brown; said that “he doin’ too much… and what’s with the Bermuda shorts” (lol)

I beg to differ. I think he’s stepping outside of the box. People get tired of hearing the same type of stuff all the time. I felt like he took a chance with this song. Whether it plays in his favor I guess will be up to the public, but I can definitely see this song played in the club or a warehouse blowout party with glow sticks and whatnot (lol).

Point is… it’s a good way to break away from what people stereotype Black men to sing or rap about. This song is hot! Check it out for yourself…

Our dearest Rihanna has definitely taken some risks this year.. and for her newest single “Te Amo” I must say is definitely a risk well taken.

A woman falls in love with Rihanna in this video yet she handles it well.  Just take a look and listen to the words.. Nice job Rih!
