Hey heart breakers! I was browsing the net today, and came across the announcement that Aaliyah has a new song out. The song is called "Enough Said," and it features "emo rapper" Drake. Aaliyah is one of my favorite artists...period. However, I don't really feel this song just yet. I wish they would have came with something better since this is her introduction to a whole new generation. I expected more. I don't think they did "Baby Girl" justice with this lackluster track. Take a listen and let me know what you think!

Hey guys! June 7, 2012 was my 2 years post-relaxer anniversary. I decided to flat iron my hair to see how long it was. This was my first time flat ironing it since October 2011. It grew a lot, and is still in good shape. I recorded my blow dry and flat iron process for you guys. I also filmed a video about how great it feels to be 2 years post. It's a three video series.

But that wasn't the strangest part! For most of the video she sat naked in a bathtub and covered herself in various fluids and glitter. She slapped glitter all over her butt and etc in slow motion, and they zoomed in on her booty rippling in slow motion lol.
There's also a clip of her covered from head to toe a la the movie "Carrie" in what looks to be fake blood. In these scenes she is also slapping her booty and vajayjay in slow motion.
And at the end of the video she starts drizzling a white "sperm like" liquid all over her face and body. I have three words for this video. I...JUST...CAN'T. Has she lost her mind? Is she on drugs? Or is she doing this to boost publicity and give her sagging career a boost? I'm not quite sure, but I want the old Erykah back. I can't get with this new Erykah. She kind of scares me lol. And why aren't any of the men in the video naked? Why is it that women are always the ones using their body in this manner? It's really sad.
Now, I am a very creative person and respect art. However, I have yet to find the point in this. Well, of course there is a point. I think it is supposed to be about her first sexual encounter and the various emotions involved or something (based on the lyrics). However, I think it should have and COULD HAVE been executed in a classier way with less nudity and etc. Here's the video in question.
UPDATE: So apparently the up close/tight shots of "Badu's " um...lower region are actually her sister's. Her sister Nayrok allowed them to film her nether regions up close for those parts of the video. Everything else is alllll Erykah. Either way, my thoughts on the video are still the same.
*Please note this video is in NOT SAFE to watch at work or around children.*
What do you guys think of the new video??? Leave your opinions in the comment section below!

Hello heart breakers! Rihanna has been spotted rocking a rasta inspired do'. The pop singer took the stage at last night's American Idol finale sporting her signature shaved sides, bangs, and dreadlocks pulled into a ponytail. If you follow my blog, then you know I suggested back in February that Rihanna give up her blonde wigs/weave and try dreadlocks instead. She listened! Well, probably not to MY advice literally, but thank God she decided to go in a different direction with her hair. It is wayyyy better than those tired styles she has been rocking for the past few years
But anywho, it will be interesting to see how Rihanna changes up this style. She usually starts with something and then tweaks it until it is right. Let's hope :)
Here's the look without the bangs:
And here she is with the bangs:
While I think this is a positive change for her, I think I would have preferred it without the bangs. The bangs take away from the look. I know she has a huge forehead and all, but I think she could pull off the look sans the bangs and it would look way better. Right now she has too much going on. I think she could also wear the locks in her signature red color or even in black with a brown or blonde ombre effect on the tips. That would be super cute! I wish more celebs would step away from "safe" weaves and switch it up. Nicki minaj tried dreads for a music video and they were soooo cute. However, she didn't wear them after filming the video.
