Amber Rose, you are leaving us hanging

Dear Amber Rose,

Clearly you understand the amount of power you hold over those of us who keep hitting the refresh button on your Instagram page in our web browsers (a phone screen is just too small to view cakes like that).

Maybe you don’t really like all of this attention. Maybe you feel like you have to dole it out to us the way you would to an ungrateful or unfaithful lover who is not deserving of the beauty that is your body.

Whatever the case may be, we are missing looking at you. It’s not that we don’t love to see pictures of your face. We do. It is beautiful and perfect. You have a Colgate smile, and that is always fun to look at.



It’s not that we don’t like living your life through your pictures; we do. Life is good in Amber world. You travel a lot, rock hot fashions and ride in fancy cars. What’s not to love?



We appreciate all the gifts you bestow upon us, Muva.

We just wish you’d bring those cakes back.


Facebook and Instagram outage last night

Facebook and Instagram were down for a while last night. Did you notice? Did you freak out? Or did you just go to bed knowing you would be able to share every little detail of your lives again by morning?

Twitter is about to get messier for some of you

As if Twitter weren’t already messy enough, here comes group direct messaging and video posts. I’m here for the group messaging, but of course in true Twitter fashion, everyone will not have access right away.

Amber Rose is like a dope pusher [Photos]

She got us high on the good stuff, and then she left us hanging for days. I am strung out waiting on new, sexy pictures of her to surface on Instagram I feel like Pookie in New Jack City.

Also, look at these brilliant sketches of some of her Instagram poses

Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 perform “Dancing Machine” [VIDEO]

If you know anything about me, you know that my love for all things Michael Jackson runs very deep. He was just as good with his brothers as he was solo; Michael was in his element when he was performing.

Here is a video of him performing “Dancing Machine” with his brothers on the Johnny Carson show. Peep his dance solos. Listen to his voice. Love everything that is Michael Joseph Jackson.

Amber Rose never disappoints

Amber Rose is a bald, blonde goddess. I continue my quest to stalk her Instagram and bring you the fruits of my labor. She never disappoints. Today we are blessed with a new hot pic and two tasty videos.


Oh, Amber. How we love thee.

I love how you seem to be loving your life just being Amber. More people should feel so comfortable in their own skin.



Everyone is still talking about the pictures you posted this weekend, even Wendy Williams!



But you don’t even want all the shine for yourself, so you bless us with a video of another hottie with a fat ass.

Listen. Keep doing you, Amber. We will continue to be here for it. <3

Are you uncomfortable with discussing race?

Race is always going to be an uncomfortable conversation for those wielding the power because it is hard to admit when one group benefits from the restraints it puts on another group.

The Game – “Ali Bomaye”

This is one of my favorite songs from the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack. Nothing beats rolling through the streets of Los Santos putting in work as this blasts through your speakers. Today’s get crunk playlist begins with this gem from The Game featuring Rick Ross and 2 Chainz.

I had an incredible craving for fried chicken wings and french fries earlier today, and I opted to eat peanut butter on 12 grain bread instead. Not exactly the fried fats I wanted, but definitely better for me and my body.

I once considered driving for Uber; now I’m not so sure

In the last few weeks, I’ve seen more than one Uber driver lamenting the way Uber fare drops are negatively impacting their ability to earn money while driving for the popular service.

French Montana – “Fuck What Happens Tonight”

Sometimes you need a song that combines the slow wine aesthetic of dancehall reggae and the grittiness of hardcore street rap. I am getting all of that right now from this DJ Khaled produced track. I got my gun on me!

When you are thirsty, drink water

I have been working on making sure I get enough water in every single day. It is a lot harder than you might think, but I believe I am mastering this new skillset.
