What’s Your Jam Wednesday????

Every now and then I like a throwback and this time it’s from Usher.

This is one of the first songs my daughter started singing when she was a toddler (cutest thing ever!)

Akon aims to provide 600 million Africans with solar-power energy

Akon aims to provide 600 million Africans with solar-power energy

In my opinion, this story is phenomenal. According to statistics on http://www.akonlightingafrica.com, 600 million Africans still don‚Äôt have access to electricity, particularly in rural areas. Akon is a Senegalese-American “musicpreneur” who is choosing to give back in a major way to his home country. Not only does his initiative aim to provide immediate energy solutions¬†to these areas, but he is establishing the Solar¬†Academy for students to learn from experts and make groundbreaking¬†discoveries in that arena. According to the site.

Lighting up Africa works to:

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Allow school children and students to do their homework and pass their exams.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Allow shopkeepers, tradesmen and cooks to work and small businesses to expand their activities and revenues.

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Make roads safer and improve the structure of public places in Africa. It helps guarantee the continuity of healthcare services as doctors are able to examine patients after dark.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Provide a great opportunity for families who will be saved from using pollutant, toxic and costly domestic fuels such as kerosene.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Ensure better access to information, through the radio, television or computer, and improve communications as the people will be able to recharge mobile phones faster and cheaper.
‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Empower the young people of Africa, who account for 70% of the population and who will be responsible for driving growth.

—————————————————————-
“Start Over” by Beyonce is one of those make up songs after you and your mate break up, argue, or says some below the belt type shit to one another. You listen to it and think I love my boo too much for this, but then they come right back with some dumb stuff and that “maybe” in the lyrics is telling you, no starting over today baby. Lol

Billboard Music Awards Fashion

Billboard Music Awards Fashion

I’m by no means a fashion expert but hunny I know what looks good and what looks like a hot ass mess.

Take this outfit that Zendaya had on in the first row. ¬†It literally looks like someone threw up on the outfit. ¬†See the pink parts, that’s the shrimp I ate and threw up when I saw this outfit.

Fitty cent KILLED EM!  You betta go boy!  That black ombre looks amazing on his beautiful physique.

Meghan Trainor looked a little too grown and in the wrong color if you ask me but I love her so she gets a pass.  Do better next time boo boo.

Estelle looks elegant and sexy in her getup. ¬†Love it girl. ¬†I would’ve loved to see some more¬†vibrant lipstick to make it pop.

Next to Estelle’s pic is one of Jourdan Dunn in an outfit that her baby brother put together. ¬†LOL ¬†I wouldn’t be caught dead in a casket with that outfit on.

Little Miss Natalie La Rose looks adorbs in her pretty shingly dress.  I love her hair and the dress!

Tsk, tsk, tsk, Tracee Ellis Ross….baby what were you going for? ¬†Whatever it was it went horribly, awfly wrong. ¬†That’s an outfit you wear to your husband’s biker party or a BDSM interview for a Dominatrix position, not an awards show. ¬†LMAO. ¬†I love them curves though. ¬†I would kill to have that body gurl!

Jussie Smollet, I LOVE YOU!!!  I love the grown out beard and hair, I love the way his cream suit matches with his skin tone.  Love the look boo!

Oh no y’all, Britney Spears had another breakdown….in the closet picking out something to wear cause this dress should be put out by the trash and burned. ¬†The dress does her body no good. ¬†I thought that when you had money, you could afford Spanx or good bras??? ¬†Her “girls” don’t look snatched and neither does her body. ¬†What wong Brit Brit????

Iggy Azalea has a body designed by GOD himself too. ¬†She makes me sick with all that body and her boyfriend Nick Young is so foine it’s ridiculous. ¬†I love her playfulness in this outfit. ¬†She matched the ends of her hair with her shoes. ¬†The colors are pretty on her and the outfit accentuates them curves. ¬†Get it Iggy, you Fancy girl! ¬†Yaaaas!

Next to Iggy is, what I’m calling, an actress that forgot to turn in her American Horror Story outfit after the scene change. ¬†That mess is ill-fitting and horrible. ¬†It’s like something you might throw on to run to the corner store while you’re doing laundry cause your good clothes being washed. ¬†Uuuugggghhh, don’t wear this again Hailee Steinfeld.

While David Lee Roth is a legend and made one of my favorite songs “Jump”, this suit should JUMP it’s ass back in the closet! ¬†I hate suits like this that match all the way down.

All hail the Queen of the Hamburger! ¬†Mariah Carey is finally fat y’all! ¬†She still looks great but I remember when Mariah was snatched in all areas. ¬†After babies, your body is just never the same. ¬†She looks good but I would’ve like to see her in some color.

The next pic is of somebody named Dencia.  I have no earthly idea who she is.  You know how they say bad press is still good press.  This is the look she had to be going for baby cause that outfit threw me back to George Clinton and the Parliament to Daft Punk back to Earth Wind and Fire all wrapped up in one with a little Chris Brown on top.  She obviously wanted to be the topic of conversation and for all of us that had no idea who she was to look her up and make it so that she trends.  NOT!  I did not look her up to contribute to her trending progress.  Sorry boo boo, not today.

Now, Miss Taylor Swift needs a steak and potatoes IV (intravenous). ¬†She is too thin to me and that’s not sexy. ¬†They need to put her in the hospital and give her some protein immediately to thicken her up a little bit. ¬†Hell, they have to hold her down when the air conditioner comes on!

Kylie and Kendall are polar opposites.  Kyle is a mini Kim and Kendall to me is just gorgeous!

Taraji did that! ¬†Drops the mic and that’s it!

Laverne Cox rocked that dress with the “girls” peeping out. ¬†She is really, really pretty and so courageous. ¬†Five stars Laverne!

Mr. Bryshere L. Gray from Empire is as cute as he can be.  I love them lips but this suit looks like some wallpaper at Woolworth if anyone remembers that store from back in the day.

All I can say is God Bless America for allowing all of us the freedom of expression. ¬†Some of us just need a few more classes or to hire Mary J. Blige’s stylist to step their game up.

BB King, the King of Blues, dies at 89 – BBC News

BB King, the King of Blues, dies at 89 – BBC News

The “King of the Blues”, guitarist and singer BB King, has died aged 89.
King, known for his hits My Lucille, Sweet Little Angel and Rock Me Baby, died in his sleep in Las Vegas.

Born in Mississippi, King began performing in the 1940s, going on to influence a generation of musicians and work with Eric Clapton and U2.
Once ranked as the third greatest guitarist of all time, he had been suffering ill health in recent months.
He was recently taken to hospital with a diabetes-related illness.

Fellow musicians paid tribute to King including blues guitarist Buddy Guy, who often played with him.
“BB King was the greatest guy I ever met,” he wrote on Instagram.

“The tone he got out of that guitar, the way he shook his left wrist, the way he squeezed the strings‚Ķ man, he came out with that and it was all new to whole guitar playin’ world.

“He could play so smooth, he didn’t have to put on a show. The way BB did it is the way we all do it now. He was my best friend and father to us all.”
Clapton posted a video tribute on Facebook to express his sadness at the death of his “dear friend”.

“I want to thank him for all the inspiration and encouragement he gave me as a player over the years, and for the friendship that we enjoyed,” he said.
“There’s not a lot left to say because this music is almost a thing of the past now, and there are not many left who play it in the pure way that BB did. He was a beacon for all of us who love this kind of music.”

Lenny Kravitz tweeted: “BB, anyone could play a thousand notes and never say what you said in one.”
