REGARDING HER STYLE: “There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal. I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘ the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”
REGARDING SOCIAL NETWORKS: “I like Twitter because it’s a good direct link to people. You just reach out to someone you like and say, ‘Follow me please!’…and then we can talk. I really like Instagram as well. It’s a good one, very simple. I’m also on Facebook and Tumblr.”
REGARDING HER NEW LIFE: “Living in New Zealand, you don’t get these experiences. I spent so much time in my room before. My life is so wild right now. For me to be able to do something I really enjoy and for that to get me out in the world—to South America, to here, to London—…every day I kick myself, I’m so lucky.”
REGARDING HER OSCAR NOMINATION (and TYLER PERRY): “People were like: ‘You just get nominated for an Oscar and the first movie you do is a Tyler Perry film?’ Well, it’s not like Scorsese called me! Tyler was the only call i got the day after the Oscars. And he gave me a quote. Up until then, I had no quote. I was getting paid pennies to do movies. Tyler treated me like a queen.”
REGARDING FRIENDSHIP: “I’ve got my road dogs who were with me before all other fame. My best friend in the whole wide world I’ve known since the seventh grade. My other girlfriend was my roommate at Howard. They are my backbone. They know me. When they see me, they look behind the eyes into my soul to see if I’m really alright.”
REGARDING BEING [A] BLACK ACTRESS: “It’s always a battle for black women, we’re totally at the bottom of the totem pole. Look at the white girls. How many times have you seen Amy Adams in a period piece with a great actor like Meryl Streep or Christian Bale? And look at Jennifer Lawrence! Hits out the wazoo! How come we’re not nominated every year? Because the scripts and the roles aren’t there. It’s not rocket science.”
REGARDING LOVE/DATING: “Here’s the deal: I’m no spring chicken. I’m not in my 20′s dating around. I’m looking for happily ever after. So, once you get clear on what it is you’re looking for, the pickings are slim, honey… I’ve left the whole continent of North America. I’m looking abroad.”
“Posing nude is probably the most uncomfortable thing ever, and not from a spiritual sense. I’m still going naked. I can still take it off—two babies later.” -Nia Long
“The point is to capture the true essence of beauty in our most comfortable state—and that is nude.” – Nia Long
“When you have kids, your body changes drastically. My boobs are not the same as they were before, I’m not going to lie.” – Nia Long

On Ellen’s talk-show, after the monologue and audience dance, Ellen’s classic limber-overs, and arm-chair swings over the couch (on route to her chair) must have sparked a pitch of creativity.
This past Tuesday, Scripps-[Howard] announced that she would be joining the HGTV family on a six-episode competition series to be called: “Ellen’s Design Challenge” which will feature six creative competitors whose task is to sketch, design, and build furniture in just 24 hours. The last man (or woman) standing will be the winner who, throughout the challenge, consistently impressed the panel of judges by showcasing their creativity and versatility throughout.
Like only Ellen can, she joked (seriously): “I’m so excited about this show because I love finding really special pieces of furniture. One time I found a beautiful one-of-a-kind armoire that spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced. It turned out there was a drifter living inside of it, but that’s a story for another time.”
Ellen’s known for being able to play on something said with something that sounded really serious and meshed with whatever was being discussed, and three seconds later, she can have you like: “What!?”
…that was such an example. Frame it. It’s Ellen’s signature style.
For the record-just so you know, Ellen is not leaving her own talk show (or her yearly gig hosting the Oscars) for this new show.
Ellen’s Design Challenge (which will be produced by DeGeneres’ production company: A Very Good Production, along with A. Smith & Co. and Telepictures) will premiere on HGTV in 2015.
No word yet on who the judging panel will be.
I’m looking forward to a show like this!
“Confessions” singing heartthrob Usher, is confessing about having more on his plate than the perils of relationship woes with a woman. This time, he made a confession that concerns one of his two sons: 6 year-old Usher Raymond V, and Naviyd, 5; both conceived by, and born to his ex-wife and stylist: Tameka Foster.
In a candid interview with “Today,” the [NBC] “The Voice” judge spoke about his obsession with learning all that he can about the health condition: Type I diabetes.
Usher states that even at times on the show while cameras are on, and the judges are taking a break, you will most probably catch him: head down, face in a book-reading all that he can about trying to make sure his son is eating properly.
In the wake of mourning the loss of his grandmother and then learning his son was diagnosed with Type I diabetes, Usher said this past year has really taken a toll on him: “This year has been really one of my hardest years. I lost my grandmother, my son was diagnosed as being a type one diabetic… It has definitely been a difficult one for me, man.”
We wish him the best, sincerely.

The Queen of Soul: Aretha Franklin is from the old school [of home training and R-E-S-P-E-C-T]. And us young whipper-snappers with all our new-age child’s play, train of thought, and lack thereof will not play games with her.
The legendary singing powerhouse filed a $10 million dollar lawsuit against the editors of an online parody website called TheNewsNerd.com who, on April 11, published a fake story about the Queen of Soul being involved in a feud with another soul legend (and singing friend): Patti LaBelle.
On April 15, when Franklin got a hold of the news, she posted a formal denial letter-disputing the claims the site’s claims-and from there, proceeded to take legal action.
Although the site posted [the typical, standard, rhetoric] claiming the article was “purely satirical” and used for “entertainment purposes only” still, it didn’t go over too well with Ms. Franklin who found no satire or humor in it.
According to our source, it was suggested that Patti LaBelle was arrested for assault and battery after attacking Franklin at a concert in March.
Franklin’s publicist Gwendolyn Quinn stated, on behalf of Franklin: “The stories were not presented as satire or humor. It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way.”
In classic “showing ‘em what humor is” style, in her defense (against the website’s feature), Franklin’s denial read as follows: “I’ve never heard anything crazier— regarding myself and Patti allegedly fighting on March 20 in Atlanta. On March 20, I was in New York City readying for my birthday patty (Sorry. LOL. Laughing at my typo error). I meant PARTY, which we all had one fabulous time. Patti and I are cool and we always have been.”

The movements of the heavens fluctuate (which is the reason for yearly differences in the boundaries of the constellations). A cusp occurs when the sun moves from one sign to the next sign. The precise date when the sun moves from one sign to the next sign sometimes differ because the suns orbit around the earth is not exactly regular each year.
Let’s talk a little bit about the “yearly differences in the boundaries of the constellations.”
Let’s say you are born April 19. You have probably found that some astrology books read as such:
ARIES: March 20-April 20 & others read: ARIES: March 21-April 19
TAURUS: April 19-May 20 & others read: TAURUS: April 22-May 21
That can be confusing, but here is the simple answer: you are Aries on Taurus’ cusp. If you fall into a cusp, personologically, you will exhibit certain characteristics of both zodiac signs. This “overlapping” can be conceptually understood like how one turns a page of a book. Turning a page is a continuation of the previous page. Cusp people exhibit characteristics that may seem like they are going in and out of the characteristics of both signs (because they do possess characteristics of both signs). These cusps are:

Although O.J Simpson is far from the lifestyle he had grown accustomed to living and exchange his Brentwood (California) home for the cold bars of a the Gray-Bar Motel, Apartment Unit: #Florida Jail Cell; he’s still not far removed from being pardoned of paying his bills like the rest of us [law-biding citizens].
Despite his Florida home being auctioned off last October, the state of Florida Sewage and Water wanted to make its presence known and to say that in the State, use of its services still had to be paid for whether you’re still alive and knife wielding, trophy stealing [or making license plates].
Well back then it didn’t “fit” so [we must] acquit, but Florida State Sewage and Water aint bowing out this dripping riddle so quickly. According to reports, The Juice still owed a whopping $457.33 when the home was auctioned off. Reportedly, the balance is subject to an 8% annual-interest penalty.
Although he may be paroled sooner, O.J. is in the middle of serving a 28-year sentence and according to those time and numbers, the math shows that 8% on a $457.33 balance could end up being a new bill balance of around $4000 [in 28 years].
We’re almost positive that at 94 years-old in the next 28 years, a back due water bill would probably be the last thing on and aging O.J. Simpson’s mind But the fact of the matter is, Florida Sewage and Water company obviously wants to be there to bill him for the element he used long ago [although another state], helped him wash his hands clean of being and ever having served time for.
After successfully having won and done the same to satellite radio company: Sirius XM Holdings [in 2013 in the same manner, for the same reason], the ghost of the Napster nightmare has come undone and opened Pandora’s box on notes from blasts of the past.
Major records Sony, Warner Bros, and Universal, labels are now suing the Oakland California-based Internet radio powerhouse: Pandora for not paying licensing fees (and copyright infringement) for their use of songs that were recorded before 1972.
According to our source, older songs (like Aretha Franklin’s “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” and The Beatles’ “Hey Jude”) aren’t covered by copyright law but they are indeed protected in common law by states [including New York].
According to the lawsuit (filed in the state of New York) the record labels claim the artists and their labels have been deprived of millions of dollars every year by services like the Internet radio giant who streams random songs according to artists or genres by grouping them [by categories like such]: “Motown” or “60 Oldies.” So pretty much-all those artists within those particular categories and genres have been cheated. Sony, Warner Bros, and Universal are scouring these categories for artists under their labels and umbrellas, and going after Pandora [like they did Sirius, last year].
Pandora said in a statement, they are confident in their legal position and look forward to a quick resolution to the matter.

Whether your tryst list contains 3 or 30, if you’re a girl, no girl wants the world feeding between the lines of whom we bedded, got wined, dined (or sixty-nined).
In an interview with Bravo Channel’s Andy Cohen this past Thursday, Lindsay came clean about the list. (Other Side of the Fame wrote the story up here).
As it turns out, it wasn’t just another one of those tabloid magazine rumor stories-the tryst list actually did exist (and did indeed belong to Lindsay).
When asked (by Andy) about her response to Franco, a clearly embarrassed Lindsay placed her hands over her eyes and replied: “I cannot confirm or deny” [writing the list] but Andy wouldn’t accept that as Lindsay’s final answer-that’s when she caved in and admitted writing it and stated: “Someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it, so that’s a really personal thing. It’s really unfortunate. And I talk about it in the last episode of the show, soooooo to be continued…”
According to our source (in our original story about the list), it was reported that it was picked out of the trash and the rest was history, her-story: for all the world to see. Either way, the world saw (what was a private conversation among friends) turn out to be public information (by betrayal of a “friend” ..that’s terrible by way).
Lindsay’s last show of her eight-part docu-series on OWN aired Sunday [April 20] and Lindsay had this to say [about the leaked tryst list]: ‘The fact that that happened was not only humiliating, but just mean and mean-spirited / the story’s on [New York Post’s] Page Six right now.
Lindsay’s “Tryst-36” (published by In-Touch Weekly) had many of the names blurred out (for legal reasons) and although the majority “victims” listed among the blurred lines exercised their right to remain silent, actor James Franco [named on the list as well] refused to take his claim of being bedded, lying down. He stepped forward to publicly denounced Linday’s claim that he was a notch under her belt and added that he had “refused her advances.”
…”sooooo to be continued” finally came.
The world had only heard these words (from Lindsay in the OWN finale preview): “This actually really is annoying now. It’s fu(ked up and I don’t want a part in it,” (the list being made public). She continued: “For those two weeks I took off, no-one knows this…’ and the preview goes fades to off.
At last paragraph of the blog where we did the write up where Lindsay’s life coach caught her off-guard on camera [approaching her about word having gotten back to her that she found out Lindsay had been drinking], we mentioned that Lindsay had taken [some time off] to get away from cameras and taping.
Well in that last and final taping on OWN last night-in one of the most candid, honest, and riveting confessionals Linday revealed that during that two weeks away, she suffered a miscarriage.
If you watched the show, Lindsay was genuinely interested and great with the kids at the community center and they seemed to be attached and took a genuine liking to her, too. Surprisingly, it (her interaction with the kids) was one of the greater and most surprising sides of Lindsay Lohan that the world had never gotten a chance to see.
In knowing her public reputation, Lindsay seems [to always] appear to be troubled, disheveled, preoccupied, hasty, quick, pacing, frantic, and volatile, but with those kids, she always seemed relaxed and natural as anymore had ever seen her. It was good that OWN shot her in that light. Thus far, it’s been reported that the docu-series got about 700k views-a less than expected/stellar viewership.
It wasn’t renewed for a second season (thus far), but throughout her publicity campaign and promoting it, Lindsay still remains gracious and grateful to Oprah for allowing her the platform and opportunity to have documented for the world to see; her trying to get it right-because she would like to be trusted, and get work in Tinseltown again.
She expressed: “I’m seeing all these other actresses do all of these things and then just realizing, ‘Oh s***, I don’t have that anymore.’ “
Mike your calendars. A book about Michael Jackson written by his former (highly intellectual, burly, gentle-giant bodyguards) is coming to a bookstore near you-dropping the G’s on Michael.
I can only imagine with the cash-cows having coming of age and the reality having set in that no matter how close you thought you were to the guy (or how many “secrets” you know), the final four that really mattered to him are borne [of the estate]. I mean, when you know secrets like this, hell, why not make a profit eh?
Well according to the deets on the book, we’re going to all be inundated with the sexy details about some Eastern European (*Wiggles my face and fingers*) mystery lady friend who, according to the bodyguards [/slash chauffeur]; spent many-a-day all nestled up in the backseat of the limo-most probably moaning out in ecstasy-chanting Beyonce: “Driver roll the up the partition please.”
According to the bodyguards [/slash authors: Javon Beard and Bill Whitfield], Michael was quite the playboy when all never knew. He would send the guys to fetch the mystery lady (they say he referred to as “a Friend). Additionally, Michael (allegedly) even courted another woman—one of which, was the lucky recipient of gifts from Tiffany’s [despite the fact that Michael was known for his frugality-seldom buying anything with cash), but according to this book, he did it for love and lust, Yo.
In excerpts obtained by our sources, the budding authors describe the slender 5.4 mystery lady as drop dead gorgeous and claim that Michael would make late night booty calls after putting his children down, shooting right over to a nearby Hampton Inn………… to get it in.
Bodyguard, Whitfield, claim that it was just something about “Friend” who Michael was more fond of and when she came to town (to stay at that posh Hampton Inn suite…*eyes in head*), it was a big to-do: everything had to be perfect and “ready for her arrival.”
Let the former bodyguards tell it, no matter how “drop dead gorgeous” “Friend” was, or no matter how much he liked the other one (who got gifts from Tiffany’s), neither one obviously tamed his heart such that having a third girl would be out of the question. This one’s [nick]name was “Flower,” and she would visit a few days after ‘Friend.”
Other deets in the book include the big reveal that Michael was a strict dad. Once, Michael made Prince walk around with a dustpan and brush to follow the new pup around [that Michael bought for him]. Prince “got chewed out big time” for not cleaning up dog poop that Michael walked on so that was his punishment.
*Blanket stare* I mean: *blank stare*
The bodyguards also claim that (despite the Tiffany gifts?) they were in the know of all Michaels money woes and would sometimes go without pay [even while watching Michael go on shopping sprees that would end at point of sale when he credit card was declined].
Welp, that’s about the extent embarrassing secrets you’re going to get in this book because the guys claim they were very fond of Michael and loved his children.
Look out for “Remember the Time (Protecting Michael Jackson) In His Final Days” in June 2014.
I just got done reading some comments people were posting about this book and it’s sad that people immediately see money.
Sure, I joke about it but truth be told (as I see it-truthfully), it is VERY obvious that this book is not a poison-pen effort. And seeing as though they threw it out there that they’ve worked for Michael without pay and monies due them-monies are probably due them. I’m just going to assume they liked him that much that they were most probably willing to await the same big payday Michael was waiting on: The “This is It” final tour and big payday. Obviously, we all know, that did not happen. And these two men probably really are due some pay. If that is the case (especially considering this is NOT a poison-pen effort, but rather, a way of putting Michael out there in a more human light), I don’t see a problem with them doing the book.
As a publisher (and content strategist) since the ink isn’t dry let me offer this: This book would do a WHOLE lot better if the two bodyguards would stick to every single candid (human) detail about Michael and his children, rather than to throw those unbelievable freakshow parts about the women in it–(which very well may be true), but at this point in the game, it’s not worth freakshowing the book out for shock value when the bigger VALUE lies in tales of Michael’s human side and relationship with his children.
So Dear Publisher: Consider that free consult and word of advice from another publisher. Obey the writing/writer’s rule: Write About & Stick To What You KNOW. Those bodyguards know more about Michael, his children, and his relationship with them over these “mystery women” who, to this day, remain nameless and faceless.
Sure, mention it IN the book (in a paragraph or two), but don’t PROMOTE it FOR selling the book.

Hi #TeamAries :) (March 21-April 20). Since today is your last day we’ll send you off with a bang and synergy from pages 160-161
Symbol: The noble looking ram who samples all things around him. He is brave because he knows not of danger ahead of him-he has to experience it for himself, yet and still, he will come back around to test the waters-regardless the outcome of the first test.
House & Motto: “I am” therefore I am: environmental experiences, the physical self and personality. I am personal interests, ego and structure of the physical self/physical body. I am the stage where the character mask is worn. I am firstborn and my approach to the world is like that of an infant. “I am” because I am all that I am aware of-which, like an infant, is why I am selfish by nature.
My house is FIRST & because I am first, everything is about Me! Me!
Element: Fire is light and heat and is in a class by itself (not a gas, a liquid or a solid). It is Combustive-seen and felt. Even alone, fire is violent and acts with great physical force. It reacts with even greater force at interaction with it, and fights wildly so that it may not be put out. It creates action in hopes of getting a reaction due to its inner motivations. It is passionate and immoderate-showing or resulting from strong feeling. It is furious, extreme and intense-tending to distort the meaning of whatever interacts with it. It is excited, agitated, energetic, assertive, dynamic, enthusiastic, idealistic, self-projecting, and always looking for challenges-thus taking action for the benefit of itself.
Fire is the will and the spirit within the individual that motivates them to aggressive action.
It is a physical element that is responsive through action and inspiration.
Planets: Mars-INITIATIVE, COURAGE, PERSONAL DRIVE, ENERGY, PASSION, AGGRESSION and EGO PROJECTION-motivation, physical energy and stamina, boldness, freedom-loving, pioneering, tenacious, warrior ways, fighter, fearless, independent, competitive, initiative, drive, passion, aggressive, irate, exhibits action and directness in approach, able to lead, authoritative, tough, violent, harsh, strong leader especially in crisis, desires, angers, has courage, is egocentric, arrogant, materialistic, flamboyant, excitable, crusader, a positive & lively response to all situations.

Plight: “Masculine”: proactive and provoking, aggressive and active, electric, spontaneous and self-expressive.
Energy: Dynamic energy is direct, rather than waiting for things to come to it. It faces the world boldly and defiantly. It is dominant, aggressive, extroverted, assertive, and confrontational.

Disposition: Typically, odd numbered signs are extroverts. They tend to focus their energies on things in and of the world outside themselves-they thrive on and require energy from it while they contribute to it. Extroverts like action and are usually verbally expressive and a very sociable people. They are most often vociferous, forward, and extrospective. They like parties and are open and easy to make friends. Extroverts much prefer to be active, active in that-they naturally prefer to experience the world by being active in it. They need excitement and love the hustle and bustle. They are risk-takers who tend to be impulsive-usually neglecting (or refusing) to plan ahead. They are quick to answer, easy-going and carefree with everyday matters in life. Extroverts prefer working in groups because they need to have people to talk to, and for that reason-they do not like to do any kind of concentrated efforts alone. They prefer a more unsystematic and spontaneous way of life.
Instinct: Subjective (feelers) are receptive to the subject rather than the object. They form opinions first, based on how they feel about an object and then they observe (think) about the object-later. They react on what they feel rather than what they think, as “feeling” is priority over thinking-to them. They do not process objective thinking with ease, therefore it is easy for them to cope with feeling and emotion rather than thought and deliberation.
Aries feels directly and overwhelmingly through provoking action to get a reaction from their surroundings.
Dark Side: selfish ego, competitive, foolhardy, hot-headed, uncontrollable, self-centered, opinionated, accident-prone, self-gratifying, always putting himself first and wants everything now, quick tempered and impatient, impulsive in action with no regard for consequences, pugnacious, a satirist, thoughtless, aggressive, feisty, restless, inconsiderate, demanding and exhausting.

It was reported last week: “Wu-Tang Member Cuts Off His Penis and Jumps From Building,” and although the penis couldn’t be re-attached, we’re going to do our best to piece this kooky story together as erect and straight up as we can.
So the headlines read [something to that effect] and I’m sure as you read [that the penis could not be reattached] obviously that tells you the man lived [after jumping off the building penis-less].
What-had-happened-was…it was originally reported that no drugs were in the guys’ system and too-he was a Wu-Tang member.
Let’s clear 2 things up (according to later reports hence, why when you blog; you gotta hold out a day or two on stories like this):
1) drugs (PCP) were indeed found in his system
2) he is not “a member of the Wu-Tang” group
Whether or not the reports of the guy [and subject of this write-up: Andre Johnson] suffers from mental illness, or the attempted suicide was because of drugs (PCP) is still up in the air. We do know however, that…what-had-happened was…he obviously hallucinated, cut off his penis, and proceeded to jump from the second floor balcony of a North Hollywood apartment building around 1 a.m. last Wednesday. Although he responded: “ok” when an attempt to apprehend him was futile; he proceeded to jump anyways.
According to onlookers, by the time they made it down to the ground floor (to help Johnson), he was on his feet, running around and screaming.
News of Johnson being “a member of the Wu-Tang Clan” got back to the actual members of the Wu-Tang-Clan, and they did not take this rumored association and connection to their brand/group to lightly. They wanted to make this clear:
…That’s it, no other connection.
According to our source, Wu-Tang Clan’s source responded: “While we wish the guy good luck and hope this is not a mental health problem of some sort, we hope he gets help as this is not regular behavior. If this behavior is attributed to drugs of such we hope he gets help in this as well. However none of this is Of Tribute to the Wutang clan movement, way of life or legacy.”
TRANSLATION: “We only smoke trees and killer around these parts and we don’t cut our parts. And we’on know homie.”
That “connection” is now clarified and cut, and as well, although his penis was unable to be reattached; Johnson lived and posted a message on his Facebook page [that he feels] “blessed.” That message, too, was…cut.
So..like we said at the beginning of this write-up: we were going to do our best to piece this story together.
All things, cut-sidered…How’d we do?
The ABC “The View” co-host wrote her first post this past Thursday on the Denver Post’s Cannabists website—stating [that] by sipping small sips, her “vape pen” gives her relief of the devastating effects of glaucoma’s headache pain and pressure however, the pen does not give her a marijuana high (like recreational/street marijuana does).
Whoopi says that she is mindful (and careful) about using the pen in places/states where marijuana is illegal, though.
In case you wanted to know what a marijuana pen looks like, it’s like a small hookah but looks more like the over-the-counter thin cigars with the white tip (e.g., Black & Mild, Djarum’s etc). The pen is a CO2 vapor and is “rechargeable” (unlike a typical over-the counter cigar stick) and its vapor, per pen, allows for about 7-8 second pulls (“puff-puffs”) until empty.
If you remember, Denver Colorado just recently made marijuana legal, so it would only be befitting that its town newspaper open up a public online newspaper column to allow marijuana smokers (in due time) room to incriminate themselves beyond expressing, exhaling and exercising their freedom of speech to go along with the freedom to puff.
But their special guest this past week: Whoopi Goldberg was merely stopping by like the rule in smoking together (for “recreational” purposes) goes: Puff-puff pass[ing through].
Heres’ the link the Goldberg’s column, pass through:

…I mentioned this in my blog about Carlos Santana being reunited with a homeless man who told a news reporter that he once played with the famous “Black Magic Woman” singer and spiritualist: You never know someone’s whole story.
Well in the story, ↑ I told you about how the reporter went dumpster diving to find out if what the homeless man was saying was true or no, and turns out, he really was telling the truth.
That, like the video above, it goes to show you (what I also mention in my blog) about how I’m always so curious (and tend to attract) lost, roaming souls who-while in my days and daily travels-I always end up talking to and getting to know by name.
It just makes me feel good, because everybody has a story-even if they don’t live like us.
That man in the video above, despite his toilet-tongue at begin video, has a voice like spring water-he is a One Man Show. If you have an eye for talent then you’ll know…
Here’s what we learned about him (in just that 2:14 video).
-a good singing voice
-his own background going on (he makes it/he’s rhythmic)
-his own harmony going on (he’s melodic)
-his own instruments going on (he’s musically inclined)
-he’s lyrical (he has his own song made up)
-he has his own choreography and style
-a bonus: He’s even got dub/island style! LoL.
All he needs is a bath and a chance.
At any rate.
You never know someone’s talent (or story):

” The Old Man With the Can ” by Angela Sherice
Spring solstice is actually the “New Year” and is the universal/astronomical fact that the sun is in constellation Aries (beginning March 21 through April 20). Aries (the first sign of the zodiac) is the sign of the “infant” because it is “first born” of the constellations. It’s kind of like when we “spring clean” : we clean out all the clutter and set out to start anew. Spring is the first season. Flowers blossom and the birds chirp like spring. If there is any great time to start fresh, start anew (or start something new) as per astrology (the planets, and constellations); March 21 through April 20 would be that time (see Chapter 3 /82-91).
Looks like just in time before the sun leaves Aries, our guy Prince is: starting anew.
In a statement released on Friday, April 18, our royal highness stated: “A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.“
Yes, I know the difference between “I” and “eye”-and I didn’t mistype “eye” for ‘I.” That’s a quote by Prince himself. And ‘eye’ assure you-that Gemini was thinking “eye” as in “eye-to-eye”–what he and Warner Bros are seeing now: eye-to-eye.
If you’re a long time Prince fan (or music aficionado) then you know all too well the big fallout Prince had with his record label: Warner Brothers. He was offered one of the biggest recording contracts unknown to any artist back then (1992) yet, even with the lucrative offer, he would not be in control of his masters, nor would he be able to have creative control of his music going forward. That upset him pretty badly, and that Gemini’s mental and synapses started going to work. If anybody is a master of communication, over-communication, miscommunication, the transmitting of communication or cutting it off (abruptly or otherwise) it’s Gemini (see Chapter 3/Gemini. And like I explained at the beginning (with Aries-starting anew/blossoming lesson), as astrology would have it: anyone (or thing) born during a time when the sun is in that constellation has the qualities of that time period.
One of the best (or worst) things you can do for, or to dual-natured Gemini is let him “think” (depending on the situation pending). When Gemini begins to “think” something’s going to be transmitted. They’re like that red and blue split wire-trying to touch and make a connection while the sound of a radio dials knob is turning from left to right–trying to make that connection. With Gemini, I promise you this-something “electric” tends to happen…when they get to “thinking.” Some some form of communication (or miscommunication), some form of connection…or disconnection. (For the record, some notorious Gemini’s are: Lauryn Hill/Fugees, Angelina Jolie, Left-Eye/TLC, Coko/SWV, LaToya Jackson, Ice Cube/NWA, Alanis Morrisette, Kanye West…you get the idea).
At any rate, and back to the subject.
For our June 7 royal highness, to remedy his problem (with Warner Bros.), Prince changed his name to a symbol and for years. We had to make due and get uncomfortable with referring to him in one syllable: “Prince” and get used to referring to him in nine: “The Artist Formerly Known As Prince” (and a true artist-he was).
Like said in the move [Purple Rain] “just like his old man (Francis L.),” Prince has artistic ammunition for your a$$. To free himself of the contract, he notoriously rushed the released of five albums in a two-year time span beginning in 1994 (when he changed his name).
“The Artist Formerly Known As Prince” went on a public crusade letting it be known how he felt about Warner Bros., all the way down to wearing the word “slave” across his face at times (when in public).
Fast forward, Prince refused to be pimped my his record label and as time passed, and the Internet opened its doors to free music being passed around (on MySpace and You Tube and such), that Gemini kicked it into overdrive and made sure his music would not be included in this free-market music [just because the Internet said so]. If you were lucky to snag “Do Me Baby” to play on your MySpace background at opening of your page, your “doing” time-was-a-tickin’ baby, because Prince’s goons were coming for it-stat! Thought you were going to copy those lyrics for your hot night at karaoke? Think again. Better pop that CD in and have at those ears of yours to that speaker to learn those lyrics because, you were not getting some site’s “free lyrics” to any of Prince’s songs. He was not having it!
Over the years since social media, the reclusive, intensely private multi-talented genius began to peek his head out a little more than ever and gave of a glimpse into Prince” …and of course, I wrote about ‘em all. I’m a Prince freak, okay? Just 3 days ago I bragged this: when the question was proposed: “What was your first concert?” Prince broke my concert-cherry (and I was only 13, envy be b|tches).
Well, from the looks of things, he’s also breaking records all over again and signing yet another landmark record deal with non other than Warner Bros (who, according to his new contract, will turn over ownership of all his originally recorded music back over to him right back over to him).
As well, under his new contract, we should be looking forward to an album of all new material, and even one of my timeless FAVORITES: music from the Purple Rain soundtrack (which will be sold as a deluxe edition in honor of its 30th anniversary this year).
I can’t wait, but in the meantime, between time, and until then follow him @3RDEYEGIRL and enjoy his melodicly genius and funky hot cakes: “Breakfast Can Wait.”
