I LOVE IT! T.I. BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO TINY “WE EVOLVED INTO SOMETHING UNCONDITIONAL.” ((SWOON))

TI-TINY-HARRIS

After we watched their breakup play out on National TV, TI & Tiny appear to be bringing the relationship back together again. Yay! In an extremely sweet expression of love TI poured his heart out in a Birthday message to his wife on Instagram this past Friday. He even posted a sweet collage with pics of them over the years.

“Happy Gday to my beautiful lovely lil loud mouth, argumentative know it all, sh*t kickin,Cap a** Southside Patna. @majorgirl,” he wrote. “As a couple We’ve experienced some of the greatest moments in our lives together & burnt a hole in a bunch of big bags of money, in some of the most beautiful places in the world. And while I may have f*cked up & still have so many more f*ck ups in me on so many levels, one thing that’s never gon’ change is how I consider you….You are, have been, & always will be one of the Best Friends I have in the world.”

There’s more…

“While most of these nosey, no business havin’, overly-opinionated, fake caring a** people would see it as a break up… I see it differently,” he continued. “In my eyes, we didn’t break up, we EVOLVED into something unconditional. A relationship that supersedes fidelity, physical presence, or any other disagreement we may have faced.”

Her response was sweet as well…

 “Aww Big Daddy can’t do nothing but say I will always love you forever and a day.”

“My one of a kind King/patna lol…I’ll let you slide this time with that one,” she added. “Anywho [thanks] for everything especially those [seven] kids. Now show up and show out like I know you to do!”

I can’t lie I’m #TeamHarris here’s hoping that they can work through their issues and keep the family together!

AWKWARD BLACK GIRL: OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR INSECURE SEASON TWO

Premiere Of HBO's "Insecure" - Arrivals

I know ya’ll see my girl Issa Rae. Yass… The glow and grow is REAL!

HBO released the official trailer for the second season of the series Insecure. All I can say is here comes the drama. I’m still mad at Lawrence dog ass for the stunt he pulled last season. I’m pretty sure that I will mute the TV when he comes on screen this time around.  Now that Issa is single this season she gets a chance to mingle.

 

The preview begins with Issa talking to herself in pure Awkward Blackgirl fashion, then it cuts to a series of mini dates which all look pretty painful, after which we get to see her friend/personal therapist Molly step in as usual to help Issa work through her relationship issues.

The clip shows the highs and lows of a black woman in the work place, love and life. So far it looks good… I can’t wait for the premiere! Insecure will premiere on HBO on July 23, but check out the official trailer below…

Dedicated to my Honey Bun ❤

Back to the topic at hand. I tend to get off topic every now and then… Can we say swoon?! Cause that’s exactly what this song does for me. The single from Childish Gambino’s  Awaken My Love! project has reached double-platinum status.

Well Alright Donald Glover! I’ve been a fan since before you released 3005 a.k.a. another banger! RIAA released the announcements for platinum and gold acts. In addition to the single’s success, the album also reached gold status by selling over 500,000 copies.

Glover is also nominated for an Emmy for Best Comedy  & Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his series Atlanta (which I love) see I told you I was a fan. He also received nominations in the category “Best Writing for a Comedy Series” for Donald and his brother Stephen for the episodes “B.A.N.,” (Donald) and “Streets on Lock” (Stephen).

The brother is winning! Kudos to him, and please don’t retire from music the game needs you!

LOVED IT! #STEPTHEMOVIE A MUST SEE!

step

So,  yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of a very special movie. Directed by Amanda Lipitz, the movie, featuring Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, Tayla Solomon, Gari McIntyre, and Paula Dofat is more like a documentary which documents the senior year of a girls’ high school step team in inner-city Baltimore, as they try to become the first in their families to attend college. The girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest.

The cast was present at the premiere and there was a question and answer session. This is all apart of the American Black Film festival which is being held in Miami June 14 – June 18.

Okay, back to the movie! I must say I left the the Miami Beach Cinematheque inspired, the movie takes you through a gamut of emotions and honestly I saw myself in each of the girls. I could even relate to the each of the Mother’s struggles. I am a single Mother raising children and I’ve been in situations that mirror the women in this movies lives so much so that I left the theater feeling inspired to keep going.

Some how this movie spoke to me and let me know that my struggles as a Woman, Mother, Friend, Daughter & Companion were not just exclusively my own but that we all struggle and though we may struggle our situations are not impossible to overcome.

Go see this movie! STEP will be in theaters August 4, 2017

Check out the trailer…
