For all of you who didn’t get the chance to see Beyonce and Jay-Z in concert On The Run. Don’t worry about it. Never fear HBO is here, for a premium price that is. On The Run is set to debut on HBO.
Lately there have been tons of rumors about their being trouble in paradise for the Carter family.
Will this play out in stage or are these two love birds way too professional and private for that.
HBO will debut the entire concert on September 20.
If you can not wait for the debut to see Beyonce, you can check her out on the MTV Video Music Awards. She will be receiving a Vanguard Award.
An unarmed Black teen was gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri
. As usual the media responds. Depending on what channel you watch, you will get one side of the story. Within in every broadcast one thing remains the same. The images that are chosen to air when a black man
or woman is involved in a high profile incident does not reflect who that person is or was.
Mike Brown lied dead in the street, and the world heard Ferguson, Missouri’s cries. When the media aired the story the image
on the left was used to represent Mike Brown the recent high school graduate. In the days of social media
any picture could have been chosen but the man in a jersey with his fingers up was the ideal image for the media outlets
. Now the picture on the right was already on Facebook
. Same person, perfectly different feeling you get from each photo.
In light of this tragedy, #IFTHEGUNNEDMEDOWN was created to question how would the media portray you if you were gunned down. Shortly after this social media revolution started, more details about the Mike Brown slaying have been revealed. This post is not about what Mike Brown did or did not do, this post is about the way the media portrays our slain black men and women. If they gunned you down, which one of your pictures would the news use?
FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show just added the legendary Patti Labelle to the cast. I think I am going to cry. The producers over there at AHS are freaking geniuses. Patti will appear in 4 episodes and her character will not be singing. Sorry to burst your bubble. Patti will play Gabourey Sidibe‘s mother. He character will shed some light on the murderous Twisty the clown killer. Oh this is going to be good.
With the latest update I am assuming they have not finished taping the new season yet. Please hurry up FX. I must see this.
Do you believe in miracles? Well you will now. Comedian and talk show host of the Daily Show Jon Stewart, might as well be called god. Jon Stewart was able to get the whole Wu Tang Clan group together. Sadly ODB passed away, but he was there in spirit. The group created a new album titled A Better Tomorrow. This year the group will celebrate it’s 20th anniversary.
This is historical said Jon. Yes indeed.
