Cam B~ Love Is You (Music)

Love Is You is one of the perfect songs to make us want the love of a significant other.

For Cameron Brooks, known as Cam B, asking his soon-to-be wife to marry him has done more than assured his love for her in front of the world. Because of the proposal video that went viral a year ago, he's now signed to Block Entertainment Music Group.

Cam B also has a beautiful song out called Love is You. You can purchase Love Is You on iTunes. Listen below.

This is the video that started his career. 

20 Lessons In Your 20's

Ring Around The Rosie (Music)

There's a rap song call Ring Around The Rosie. This is real life.

Remember that cute nursery rhyme all of us girls used to sing when we were little? It went, "Ring around the rosie, pocket full of posies, ashes ashes, we all fall down." This new song has nothing to do with that rhyme. The name is the only thing that is the name.

Ring Around The Rosie is by Sauce Walka, Shy Glizzy, and Sosamann. There are a few things that stand out in the song. They don't like police, they like white women, and it's always obvious when an artist is from Houston.

Rico Love Loves The Strip Club (Music)

Rico Love loves the strip club. In his song Strip Club Pt. 2, he gives props to all the dancers in the strip club that are trying to make it in life. At the end he even goes down memory lane and talks about a certain stripper he thought was his woman.

Does that mean all of us women in the corporate world are doing it wrong? It all depends on what kind of man we want. Listen to the song and original version below.

Bethenny Frankel Calls Herself A Professional Reality Star

Over the years reality television has become more popular than fiction shows. Many actors and actresses have also put their talents aside to benefit from the reality television money. However, is being a reality star a career? Bethenny Frankel thinks so.

Bethenny is known from the television show Real Housewives of New York and always a failed attempt at hosting a talk show in the middle of the day. While she didn't feel comfortable as a host, she told Andy Cohen (Watch What Happens Live) that she's very comfortable on reality television.

Mo'Nique Talks To Roland Martin On #NewsOneNow

TV One has officially gotten everyone's attention. Years ago Mo'Nique was at her highest level of success with a pretty good late night talk show and a huge role in the successful movie Precious. After the success, she seemed to fade away from the spotlight and our televisions. Well, Roland Martin was able to get Mo'Nique to talk about everything from Lee Daniels to her upcoming HBO movie on News One Now. The interview was juicy. Below is a little of what we learned from it.

She Was Never Blackballed
Mo'Nique was never blackballed in the industry. Lee Daniels said it and she was forced to respond.

Name Dropping
Mo'Nique has no problem name dropping. She really let out her feelings toward Lee Daniels and soon ended it with admitting she deleted his number. There is no reunion in the near future for her and the successful movie producer. She also talked about being offered roles that we saw Oprah and Taraji P. Henson in. While we don't know if any of it is true, we do know after watching The Butler and the first season of Empire, the right women were perfectly casted.

According to Mo'Nique ,Tyler Perry told her that winning an Oscar meant offers for millions of dollars for future movie roles. She has not been offered anything close to a million yet. Also, she was more proud of receiving an NAACP award then an Oscar. It is interesting since there is a huge controversy about the Oscars being racist and not wanting to give Black people the recognition we deserve.

Mo'Nique Put Family Over Her Career For The First Time
This is her third marriage. It might not mean anything to someone else. However, Mo'Nique has put in far more effort to being married to her current husband. Her husband is also her manager, which means she has invested herself in him emotionally and financially.

HBO & Blackbird
I've always thought of HBO channels as a series of channels that I couldn't afford. Currently I do not have that cable package. However, according to Mo'Nique maybe I should be investing money in the network. She will be in a movie on that network soon and HBO called her. According to her HBO stands for "Helping Blacks Out."

Blackbird, a more than likely great movie, is Mo'Nique's first step back into Hollywood since Precious. She says the roles never stopped coming, but this is her special project. It stars Isaiah Washington and a new actor by the name of Julian Walker.

Similar to all the ratchet stuff, I think we should get together as a family and watch Blackbird whenever it comes on.  Thank you Roland Martin for such an excellent interview.

Michel'le Talks More Of Her Story On The Breakfast Club, Gotta Love Her

While everyone else was afraid of Suge Knight, Michel'le didn't see the big scary man. In fact since he is practically an old man now, she thinks no one should be afraid of him.

Michel'le is the most liked cast-member on TV One's hit show R&B Divas, but she also has stories upon stories to tell about her life. In the previous season of the show she was able to express her feelings of being depressed and attempting to commit suicide. In the last reunion show Michel'le also spoke on dating Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.

However, a television show that caters to several women cannot successfully hi-light one woman. Recently we saw Lil Mo attempt to make her look like a bad guy on the show, but the innocent and sweet "Something In My Heart" singer had the chance of telling her story on The Breakfast Club.

Am I the only person that is mad at TV One for giving her the spotlight to tell her suicide attempt story and then letting someone attempt to make her look bad in this current season of the show? Depression is not a joke.

Dress Up (Poem)

When I’m feeling myself
And my body oozes to be free
My figure screams to be seen
Even if it's only by me
Playing dress up becomes my game
Maybe I’ll wear something that is skin-tight
Like a pretty dress that’s just the right size
Or some short shorts that hug me just right
And as long as I’m skinny belly shirts never go out of style
Or even if I’m going nowhere, maybe I wear nothing at all
See my mind begs for me to reveal myself in the most intimate way
Touch, Tease, Please
Empty out my heart’s desires in case the right man is paying attention
It’s about more than friendship
Sooner or later he has to recognize my sexual desires
He has to see that I’m sexy and I’m wild
And in the perfect setting I’m uninhibited and ready to explore

Everyone Starts Somewhere #Success #Passion #WomensHistoryMonth

Everyone starts somewhere. Where there is a business mogul and a brand, there was once a person who struggled to get that brand off the ground. There are also some CEO's who struggled to figure out what they wanted to do before they started building that brand. Those people struggled to get money, be known, and stay relevant.

However, when we hear them speak in public now, they usually speak with arrogance and have trouble understanding that there are those of us that need help knowing where to start. Very few successful people take us back to the days when they were trying to figure out how to follow through with their passions. However, one thing we know about everyone that is doing better than us is they started somewhere. Everyone starts somewhere and everyone has help to get them started. No one does it entirely on their own.

In honor of Women's History Month, below are a few clips from Girlfriends where the women were either talking business or following a new passion. The scene where Lynn decides to become a part of the paparazzi is my favorite.
