gal-gadot-768

Titans will clash and the Earth will shake when Batman and Superman face off in 2016’s “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (BVSDJ)!” Naturally, we expected to see lots of scenes with The Dark Knight and Man Of Steel fighting, but fans everywhere were thrilled to learn a few other superheroes would be making appearances in the film. Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Nightwing are confirmed to appear; but of these three heroes only Wonder Woman has garnered a great deal of controversy. Many fans did/do not feel Gal Gadot has the powerful, Amazonian physique as Wonder Woman and there was greater controversy surrounding her costume. Would she be portrayed realistically in armor and covered, or would she be in her traditionally skimpy attire. It has taken an eternity to get any visuals from “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice!” Luckily, in honor of Comic-Con, Warner Bros. studios has finally released images of Gal Gadot as “Wonder Woman,” fully costumed!

Men & Women Can Be Friends: Why I Love My Girls

wpid-photogrid_1389636470174

Everyone knows your teenage years can be more trying than any other time in your life. The fluctuations in hormones, learning to maneuver an unfamiliar adult body, social awkwardness, and overwhelming peer pressure are nothing less than torturous. It’s during times like these that having the right group of friends can make or break you into the person you will become. There are few truths greater than the saying, “you are the company you keep…” Fortunately, I found myself in good company. The friends I surrounded myself with sought to be, and became, great people. Whatever challenges, insecurities, or doubts that kept them from making themselves better I witnessed them overcome and eradicate them. That group of friends just so happened to be all female–my girls.

Honestly, friendship is genderless. Men and women can be friends–best friends even. I was your stereotypical troubled teen; angry with the world, and even angrier with myself for not “measuring up.” It was me against the world, and with hubris, I believed I stood a chance.  Unsurprisingly, not only did I fall flat on my face–I fell on my face; through the floor, and plummeted towards Earth’s core–that proverbial “rock bottom” everyone eventually learns about. In my light – less gloom, swaddled in despair and loneliness; there I suddenly found myself in the care of five amazing women. Since then, more amazing women have become apart of my life. Truthfully and sincerely, being their friend has been the greatest decision of my life.

7/26/2014- “Prozac & Textbooks”

image

Mikey,

My life just got turned upside down. I recently found out my wife is bipolar. She was diagnosed this past week by our doctor.  Honestly, I thought she was just moody but now I see it for what it really is–a disease. For the most part, things are good between us but right now we definitely disagree about her working. She is a Kindergarten teacher and I don’t think she should continue working.  No Child should be subjected to someone with that type of condition. We already have a daughter and I’m keeping tabs on her personally. But the parents of those other kids won’t know she is ill. She feels like I’m being a tyrant, but I’m just trying to protect her and give her an easier life. What do you personally think? I’m good at admitting when I’m in the wrong, but this time in think I’m in the right.

-Temperance

***Temperance, I’d prefer your pen name be “Understanding” or “Empathetic.” Those two things are exactly what your wife needs at the moment.  Just because a person is bipolar does not mean she cannot work as a teacher. As long as she takes her medication and regularly sees a licensed psychiatrist for therapy she should be fine. FYI man people you are not aware of doctors, policemen, specialists, and even some Presidents have mental illnesses and are in no way deficient at their jobs. Don’t allow assumptions and misinformation keep you from fully understanding your wife’s condition or even worse prevent her from living her life!  By the way, keep an eye on your daughter and not because she is in danger from her mother,  but because the condition is hereditary and females are more prone to it. Be a great husband and responsible partner!

7/26/2014- “How To Deal (Thank You Frankie J)”

wpid-tabpobno.jpeg

Hey Mikey,

I have to move to New York for a big opportunity. The problem is my girl just got into a really good pre-med program at Emory. Being a doctor is her dream and I can’t ask her to come with me. I certainly don’t wanna stay though and not fulfill my dreams. What should I do because I feel like she’s the one and I don’t want to break up? Still, I know from past conversations neither of us are good at long distance anything.  Please help,  I’m really stressed and pressed by this.

-Dream Chaser

***Dream Chaser, this is one of those double edged situations where you’re hurt and benefitted at the same time.  Honestly, you and your girl have to do what is best for you at this time. If you feel like she’s the one,  and she truly is, then everything will work itself out no matter what life and distance may throw at you. Sorry but life’s not some old Burger King motto, you can’t “have it your way.” The fulfillment of any dream will come with some price. Pay it now and avoid regret later. After all regret is the one emotion you can’t do anything about…

A Febreeze Bottle!? Groupie Threatens to sue August Alsina for Sexual Injuries!

august1

Hit R & B singer, August Alsina, has had one helluva a year when it comes to bad press. First he is beefing with Trey Songz, then he gets Keshia Chante together on “106th & Park,” then just a few weeks ago he stopped his concert to find a hat someone in the audience had taken from him. Yeah, Mr. Alsina is going to have to work on his public relations ASAP. However, that may have to take a backseat to this latest accusation brought against him from a fan he allegedly hooked up with. He met the girl in Virginia after one of his shows after she paid for her own plane ticket to come and see him. He was “nice enough” to give her some backstage passes and tickets to his show, but when they got to the hotel room things got a lot more interesting.

7/22/2014- “Commitment Under Pressure”

image

Hey Mikey,

I recently moved to Atlanta from Cincinnati.  Before I left I was dating this guy. We broke up because neither of us wanted anything long distance. Now I just found out he has moved down here for his job and he wants to pick up where we left off. I don’t think I want to though. I feel like I wanna date around and see what Atlanta has to offer in the Men’s department, lol. Still I feel like have to date him too. I mean we were pretty serious. Just don’t know if I’m ready for a commitment. What should I do?

-Fresh A-Town Girl

***Fresh A-Town Girl, you don’t need my advice. You’re asking for permission to move on with your life and honestly only YOU can give yourself that power. If you don’t want a committed relationship right now then don’t be pressured into one and play the field. However, I will advise you to be a good girl and let this guy down easy. He clearly likes you to want to restart things now that he’s down here. It’s not cool to string him along with dates and allowing him to think something is going to happen between you two. This is your life darling, take control of it!

On The Run to divorce? Jay-Z & Beyonce To Split After Tour according to sources!

jay-z-beyonce-power-100-2014-650-430

Are the rumors really true? Are the music industry’s premiere power couple calling it quits? That seems to be the word on the street as reports are coming in that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are splitting up after the end of their hit “On The Run” Tour! According to The New York Post:

While Jay Z seemingly is the one most at fault, he’s also the one doing all in his power to keep the couple together, even hiring marriage counselors who are believed to be traveling with the super duo on their tour, the source said. “They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing …This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said. Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said. “There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. “For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said. “But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.”

This certainly is not the first time rumors of a split between the two megastars has come to the surface. I guess this is what happens when you live so privately and try to keep up such a flawless front. Until someone files papers in a court of law it is best we treat this as a rumor too. I personally hope it will NEVER be so. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are not just a powerful couple, they are artists beyond compare!

Feed The Beast! Release Your Urge! Watch The Purge 2: Anarchy!

the_purge__anarchy_2014_picture_movie_wallpaper_hd_for_desktop

The annual Purge is back, and set ten years in the future–The Purge 2: Anarchy! This time around the action moves outside to the streets, where it seems like any and everything is happening. There are hunters with dogs, violent bike gangs kidnapping and killing anyone on the streets, burning buses, and even crazed rich people hiring and paying people to be killed. This inevitable sequel really pushes the envelope by expanding the cast. Four strangers caught on the streets in the midst of the madness are led by local police sergeant, Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), hoping to survive the night. Leo, unlike, his wards is actually participating in The Purge for his own mysterious reasons. He is nothing short an anti-hero, eerily reminiscent of Marvel Comics, Frank Castle, also known as “The Punisher.” Interestingly, not everyone is a fan of The Purge, a faction, led by Carmelo is determined to take down the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) and end The Purge. It is literally war!
