All Things Entertainment

This blog entry is dedicated to some things that deal with entertainment. Nothing bad, just the new things I love and how I feel about them

New Album
You already know Imma talk about Jazmine Sullivan's new album, "Fearless." I like it but the way they put the songs together just didn't fit right. My favorite tracks are "Bust Your Windows", "Lions, Tigers, and Bears", "My Foolish Heart", "Switch", and "Dream Big". I guess she had a lot of input in the song selections and wanted to display her versatality when it comes to genre. She probably didn't want to just stick to songs that were more like modern R&B. You can definitely feel the emotion she has in each song and it just gave me this feeling in my heart. I know for sure she would be fantastic live. I heard she recently shot her video for "Bust Your Windows" in Brooklyn,NY so look out for that. Here is her CD on good ol' imeem,lol

New Video/Short Film
I LOVE Janelle Monae,lol. When I found out her suite came out, I was feening. I had my boyfriend listen to some songs, but he really didn't like it. He also didn't think that I would listen to her style of music, but I do. I wish I could see her live but when I finally caught on to her, the day she performed on Central Park's Summer Stage passed. My time will come,lol. Anyway, I heard that her short film for "Many Moons" was debuting on 106 & Park. I have stopped watching 106 & Park for the simple fact that it's boring. Now it's 2 hours,oh father. But I flipped the channels from BET to whatever I was watching to make sure I didn't miss it. As soon as they said "Coming up,we have Janelle Monae", I didn't move an inch,lol. I really like this short film and it's just so hot so check it out!



New Movie
There's been a lot of talk about a movie being made about Biggie's (aka Notorious B.I.G.) life and now there is a teaser trailer. Me coming from Brooklyn am VERY hype and interested in seeing this biopic. Also,being from Brooklyn, I'm assuming the best of the best. That man is a legend in the rap game and his movie should be done in great taste. I was reading this blog and this girl said that she hopes the movie is good or she'll boycott it. I'm pretty sure Voletta Wallace (Bigge's mom) had a great deal in what was going on in the movie. She's very passionate about her son and I know she wouldn't have let it turn to shit. Angela Bassett plays her in the movie and Derek Luke plays Diddy. Watching the teaser trailer gave me chills just because anything with Biggie gives me chills, that's how you know he left his mark in the world. I was reading the 15 anniversary issue of VIBE with Jigga on the cover and you know how they have the photoshoot segment? Well, for the fashion photoshoot segement, they had the cast of "Notorious" (the name of the video) do a photoshoot in things they wore in the movie. I liked it. The movie is set to drop January 19 and I will be in there like swimwear,lol. Here's the teaser trailer



That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed,lol. I'll try to blog within this week.
