Beyoncé's Formation Is Full of the Unapologetically Black Messages My Daughters Need

Beyoncé dropped that fire... I mean for a while I was NOT a fan. But I guess it's time I dust off my Bey Hive wings and glitter crown because she came out the woodworks with a mean black power trap banger.  I won't lie, I once thought Bey was vapid and aloof and not paying attention in her glass tower; apparently I was wrong. She let everybody know that #blackgirlmagic is real. ...more

Joining the Cast of the "Biggest Loser" Is My Way Out of the Darkness of Self Destruction

People have always looked up to me. I don't mean to sound self involved, but they have. I have been a class clown far before I was voted one in the school yearbook.

Beyonce Has Finally Won Me Over With “Formation”

Beyonce has finally won me over. I’ve not been a fan of Bey because I’ve always felt that she was disingenuous. That changed a couple of days ago. Her previous displays of being seemingly shallow and even obtuse annoyed me to no end.  I cringed every time that I heard her speak. It was so, awkwardly, vanilla mixed with runaway slave that it was almost patronizing. She had no fire. She, always, had the “right” answers. It seemed that Beyonce never wanted to piss people off....more
