Lemonade is not for us

In all seriousness, why is Matt Walsh still allowed to write stuff?...more

Who Run this Motha? Why we need to rally behind Hillary Clinton.

The year is 1984.  A twelve year-old me stands beside her mom in a labor temple in a small Midwestern city on a chilly fall night.  The excitement is palpable.  We wait for hours to get a glimpse of the person who could become the first woman Vice-President of the United States—to maybe even ...more

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

I often get made fun of for my Beyonce obsession, and I’m also acutely aware of how often I reference her and/or her music in my blog.  WHATEVER IT’S A FREE COUNTRY AND I LOVE HER OKAY?!But, be forewarned…cause I’m ‘bout to reference her again.There’s a song on her latest album called ‘Pretty Hurts,’ and without getting into too much detail about the song and what it’s about - it tackles beauty standards, low self-esteem and societal pressure to be thin and beautiful.  Ya know, all the things Beyonce naturally is....more

Why No One Should Be Mad at Beyoncé's Vegan Diet Business

The Internet is pretty mad at Beyoncé right now. Earlier this month on “Good Morning America” she “unveiled” that her vegan diet helped her lose weight and keep it off her self-described naturally curvy body. Granted, this is not the breakthrough of the century. We already knew that Beyoncé has been sort of vegan for awhile now....more
