  1. just came in here to see happy birthday to the queen
  2. I'm powering through Money Heist.
  3. Towards the 5 o'clock hour DNICE dropped that's the way love goes. MC Lyte comments - let me try to get Janet in the club! And Janet comes on and now he is doing a Janet medley giving the queen her FLOWERS! DNice on IG live. It's going up!
  4. Did you have good seats? I'm trying to figure out what a good seat means in that theatre.
  5. I got that party - sorry. I meant the "same goes for Empty" part.
  6. Anybody happening to be going this weekend? Particularly Friday?
  7. So I'm trying to pin down a date to go see the show in Vegas. Does anyone know how one can get a meet and greet ticket or is it too late?
  8. I love that she said "Im a little fucked up right now"
  9. So I've been trying to figure out when Im checking out this show and good grief these tickets are high affff.
  10. I watched this this evening and I give it 2/5. I was at the show Weekend 1 and got to experience it in its granduer. The two stars is that it does get to zoom in on the masterful choreography details. This is mostly a Beyonce hype piece that showcases the entirety (or at least almost the entirety - if not the whole) of her Coachella performances spliced together. I have never cared for how she insists on splicing her concert footage with so many angles and with so much happening at once during this particular performance, I think it does a disservice to the energy and effort in order to highlight intricate details. We learn that it took approximately 4 months to create the music and 4 months to rehearse the dancing. That Beyonce was 200+ pounds when she gave birth and that she eventually wanted to work her way up to do SoulCycle, stairs, and rehearsals in a day. She had a difficult pregnancy. She always wanted to go to an HBCU, like her father did, and this was her tribute to the experience. However, we don't see routines coming together, compositions being created, research being done, any imperfections that are being tweaked. She could've did so much more with the time. It lacked a depth to it. Not a compelling watch.
  11. Yes the cruise has been a big deal for yearrssss. I wonder if Janet was just like chilling on the boat the whole time or did she like helicopter in? AHHHHH FOMO!
  12. I disagree! AFY was litty and legendary. From the moment she descends for Come on Get Up to that damn jean and long sleeve white crop top. Moments! Moments! I thought the more tamer later shows was due of lack of label support. She is still hitting the moves. I was right by the stage for the golden circle for the RWU tour. I wore myself out. I think I slept the whole next day. Skipped class and everything lol.
  13. Who was the creative director for the AFY tour? Was it Shawnette?
  14. I've been powering through blackish as background noise.. I'm watching Billions and the Chi. Thinking about starting Games of Thrones so I can watch the finale with the world.
  15. I haven't heard any music from him lately but I did bump into him at SoulCycle once.
  16. I wish I would've known about this. I would've went! And tried to sneak into Denzel's room.
  17. He didn't ignore homosexuals nor compare homosexuals to abandoners or toxic masculinity. That's my point.
  18. intrigue about how it all came together. Once upon a time they made a whole shows about making a 3 minute video.
  19. Difference of thought. I think he listed the types of African-American men on portrayed in the media.
  20. I will be tuned in. I was in the audience weekend 1 and was in awe - mouth dropped - body aching - all that.
  21. You continually put words in his mouth that he did not say. He even addressed this for those who like to bypass logic in his tweet to Deray when he said "I don't look down on gay people I love all Gods children foreal." [sic - where necessary]. Homophobia is the dislike or prejudice against gay people. He never said that he disliked gay people, he actually clarified stating the opposite of this. Now, to the actual image, if you look at the language of the post that got everyone riled up - his address is to the portrayal of (black) men in pop culture. Never once did he pretend nor blame that gay black men on the downfall of the black community. He simply addressed that a certain image of (black) men was often left out by the [media]. There has been numerous of well-researched articles on the lack of depth in images of black characters - not just black men. Deray alludes to such lack of imagery in his quoted retort. Furthermore, he never "puts gays on the same level" as anything but lists the type of portrayals that he has seen more often. The fact that you, Deray and others chose to look down upon certain men that fit into certain categories while requesting that everyone uplift the gay plight - is interesting, to say the least! Then to tie this back to his agenda message, Nipsey believes that preventing or limiting how (black) men are portrayed is part of an agenda. Now, where is the homophobia? You can disagree that there is an agenda. But homophobic - based solely of the things you just most recently posted? Nah!
