[Video] H.E.R. – “Every Kind of Way”

One of my favorite artist for some time now has been H.E.R. Many people have been trying to figure out who the mystery woman is behind the voice, well let me be the one to spoil it for you if you don’t know. It’s Gabi Wilson from Vallejo, California. A lot of people will ask how are you sure about that? Well when you really like an artist you do your research and looking through some of Gabi Wilson’s old interviews you’ll find out that she talked about releasing her mixtape H.E.R. awhile back. Don’t believe me though, find out for yourself lol.

Anyways`she’s released an official video for her single,”Every Kind of Way” still leaving some mystery as to who H.E.R. really is; hiding behind those curls and lowlights.

 

[New Music] Jhené Aiko – While We’re Young

Jhene releases a new video, a modern day 50 First Dates 🙂

He walks into a diner to find a woman eating and drawing. The man that works their warns him she has short term memory and to stay away but it doesn’t stop him from approaching and building a relationship with her. Towards the end she’s starting to realize he has been with her all along as she looks at her drawings. Now that’s love! A man who spends everyday reminding/showing you what you’ve become no matter the hardship. She was worth starting over with each and every day. YAS Jhené!!!

NO Coachella for Queen Bee

download

From the moment Beyoncé announced her pregnancy it has been a bittersweet moment. Fans were happy to hear about her having twins but then it hit those that bought tickets to see her at Coachella, which let me tell you are not cheap. Beyoncé was going to be headlining Coachella but by time that comes around she’d be just about ready to pop out those twins. Of course her stans believe that she’s capable of doing all things so there was still some hope that they’d be seeing Queen Bee and the twins, well now it’s time to stop holding onto that thought. She’s canceled her performance because the doctor ordered. Don’t worry you can catch her next year but I guess for now we can look forward to music dropping along with the babies. Bey loves to surprise us all.

When Confessing Turns Deadly

Okay I know we all remember #hurtbae, you know the video where the guy confesses to cheating and the girl just looks so hurt and they have that corny ass music playing in the background making the sit down super dramatic and sad.

Well since then there’s been a ton of parodies of the video and I just had to share what would happen if #hurtbae turned into #crazybae

[Podcast] Stage 30 Talks about Work & Dating.

Su & Tray are back again speaking some real shit. Going into this podcast, “The First Date,” I was expecting that to be the starting conversation but child let me tell you, they brought up having a degree and finding work. That’s what really caught my attention. When it comes to looking for work your degree does not guarantee you’ll get the job you want. I went to school for journalism and child development and have yet to find a job in those fields.

When I finished college I was pregnant and working at Nike. Once I went on leave I told myself I could not go back to retail and I didn’t. My plan was to go back to work in 6 months and I felt like it wasn’t going to happen for me because I couldn’t find a job. Well, the Lord blessed me because a recruiter found my resume (a super old one) and I ended up with a job with 2 weeks of that call. I’ve been at this job for almost 2 years now and I started out making more than I’ve ever made working retail. I am getting to a point where I want to move on to a new company and one closer to home and I’m finding it to be extremely difficult. Working in the entertainment/movie field gave me an idea of what I wanted to do and I ended up getting an interview ( actually 4 interviews) with Netflix only to be told I did not get the position. It definitely discouraged me. I also find myself looking at positions telling myself nope don’t want to do this, don’t want to do that. I’ve turned down interviews and positions because I felt I could have found better but little do I know I could have grown in those positions. I believe a lot of people can relate to the struggles of finding work and having a degree, so thank you Su & Tray for sharing your stories.
