This is what happens when an African-American targeted brand creates a new direction to gain a broader range of consumers and fails epically…   Shea Moisture, a reputable and one of the top-notch hair/skin care line for women of color, are under fire for their new ads that display mostly “melanin-challenged” women…basically, women who don’t […]

You attend a concert for your favorite artist…. The last thing you expect is to get punched by the artist you admire…. Instead of maintaining your dignity…you make peace with a twerk. Watch how that goes down before I share my thought piece. When I watched the footage obtained by TMZ, so many thoughts gathered. […]

Let’s talk about this Pepsi ad Ft. Kendall Jenner (now pulled after negative reaction) because the folks who conceptualized this tone-death visual fuckery had no idea it would make people upset…and rightfully so. Before I go in, press play below   Kendall Jenner gives a Pepsi to a cop and rids the world of -isms. […]

Kendrick Lamar recently released new music that we’ve been anticipating. But, like most of Kendrick’s material, his new single, “Humble”, comes with some controversy and THIS TIME, I’m really not sure why.

Serena and Alexis kept their relationship low-key, although she does post pictures of them on her Instagram account from time to time. According to CNN, they’ve been dating since Fall of 2015.

For some time now, we have been witnessing this “beef” between two dynamic artists who should be embracing each other, instead of “throwing shade”. We’re talking about Brandy and Monica Both are singing sensations who were brought up in an era when R&B was dominated by male groups. Despite the popularity of groups like Boyz […]

Trick Daddy has been the topic of conversation these last few hours, but it has nothing to do with his music, which we haven’t heard much of since the 90s. The Miami rapper is in hot water for some recent comments he made on his Instagram about black women and how we should “tighten up”. […]
