While on tour with the Norwegian singing/songwriting duo Nico & Vinz, Sebastian Mikael is sent a resounding message about his music and the state of R&B. With less than five years in the industry the 24-year-old released his 2011 mixtape J’Adore, which put him in the eye of music executive at Epic Records, Sylvia Rhone. Soon after being signed with Epic he went independent with Slip-N-Slide Records.
“They didn’t have the same vision as me basically they wanted to push me in another direction. They actually wanted me to go more pop and I just wanted to keep my music I wanted my music to be soulful and real,” he explained. “They didn’t feel like it could work with that direction. We started working independently with Slip-N-Slide and from there everything happened.”

The vocalist is a believer in authenticity as a musician and relies on his creativity to push his success as an artist. Mikael noted, “Going independent, you can move around the way you want to. I had creative-control I can do whatever I want to.

Johnny Depp Goes Gangster in “Black Mass! (@BlackMassMovie)”

BlackMass.2

There seems to be no end to the type of characters Johnny Depp can play. All he needs is a little movie make up and he completely becomes the person he is portraying. This time around, Depp is infamous Irish mobster, James “Whitey” Bulger, who came to power through an unholy alliance with the FBI. They used him to eliminate the Italian mob in Boston, while he in turn used them to evade being caught and solidifying his stronghold on the city. Joel Edgerton, is John Connolly, the FBI agent and childhood friend who helps him stay one step ahead of the law.

BlackMassStill.2

Man we knew the FBI had a dirty past and this latest biopic only proves it yet again. As you recall, the organization was began by J. Edgar Hoover who was known to blackmail Presidents and even offered to put a permanent end to Martin Luther King, Jr. This film is something everyone has to see. If you google Whitey Bulger you will find he became the virtual kingpin of crime in Boston. The way these crooked man attain absolute power is violent, scary, and usually involves some corruption in higher office. Either way, almost anything with Johnny Depp in it will be entertaining I’m there! Check out the trailer below! Tell us what you think about this new movie.

8/1/2015- “Bayou Blues Over Gumbo”

73908-img_1053

Hey Mikey,

I really don’t know how much longer I can stay married. My mother-in-law hates me and she shows it every chance she gets. My husband and I was a tourist from Atlanta passing through Jean Lafitte, Louisiana. My ex-roommate wanted me to see her hometown. My husband and I met and really hit it off and for about a year and a half maintained a long distance relationship, taking turns visiting each other every month and talking on the phone every other day. I really loved him–I still do. However, when I moved there to be with him his mother was not happy. She doesn’t feel I fit in with his family because I’m educated and a lawyer. The women in his family are housewives or retired. She says I’m boojie because I don’t like frog legs, gator, squirrel, rabbit, or a lot of the “local cuisine” there. My husband does, and he is allowed to cook and/or eat it himself, but when I make food it’s for he and I to eat. So I’m going to make what we both like.

On holidays all the women (including her other daughter-in-laws), except for me, are allowed in the kitchen to help cook or prepare food. She won’t even let me boil rice. My husband suggested I cook a meal she likes so I made some gumbo with rabbit meat in it. Something I know she likes and even followed her recipe. She really enjoyed it until she found out I cooked it. Then I witnessed her pouring it down the garbage disposal…my heart broke…My husband stood there laughing and shaking his head. Not once did he speak up for me. I’m not sure what else to do. I’ve tried talking with her, reasoning with her, and compromising. Nothing works. I left my whole family to be here with him. Maybe it’s time I move back to Atlanta.

-Absurdly Bothered

***Absurdly Bothered, there is nothing absurd about how you feel. Your mother-in-law sounds jealous, petty, and hateful. Honestly, I think a lengthy vacation to Atlanta is just what you need to clear your head and figure out your next move. However, before you go on sabbatical let your husband know how you feel. Remind him of his marriage vows, and the little line where he promised to keep you “for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, and forsaking all others, be faithful only to her, for as long as you both shall live?”

While you’re away really take your time to consider your options and consequences. If your husband is not going to speak up for you, then I see a situation that will only worsen. Just think about how things would be if you had children? Would she alienate them too because of you, or try to under mind your position as their mother? All of these are things to think about. Darling, you’ve got some thinking to!

Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4Real) Lands Cover of Rolling Stone Magazine (@RollingStone)!

1035x1407-R1241COV_Kevin_Hart

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart took to Instagram to give praise to God and to share one of the happiest moments of his career – the opportunity to appear on Rolling Stone Magazine. He can now cross that off his bucket list.

In the issue, Kevin Hart talks about his humble beginnings as a stand-up comic, the fact that he appeals to a variety of demographics and he even talked about why he refrains from jokes about race relations/racism. You can check out some of his interview excerpts below:

On his humble beginnings:

“I’ve been to some of the damnedest places for comedy,” Hart says. “I performed in a place in Atlantic City called Sweet Cheeks. It was a male strip night, and some nights a female strip night, and in the middle they would stop the stripper show and have intermission, where as comedians it was our job to go up and make the people laugh. I performed at family dinners, family functions, like where you get there and you’re the entertainment for a household. You name it: All shots to my pride have been taken.”

On appealing to various demographics:

Race as an overt topic figures very little into Hart’s comedy. His core audience is black, but “I approach it on a universal level,” he says, and the proof of his success on this score is the racially diverse crowd that now comes out to see him. “If you associate yourself with one group of people, you alienate another 12, you know? So the thing for me is, how can I make everybody laugh at this one thought? The thought may be provoked by something that happened on the stoop or at the barbershop, but now how do I make it broad enough for everyone to understand it and see it?”

Tom Cruise is BAD ASS! Check Out “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation! (@MissionFilm)”

MV5BMTQ1NDI2MzU2MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTExNTU5NDE@._V1__SX1303_SY547_

Tom Cruise just cannot leave the Mission Impossible franchise alone! Thankfully no one is complaining as the latest installment, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is beyond phenomenal! Agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back and ready to do the impossible by saving the world in his own unique, somewhat reckless way. The Impossible Mission Force (IMF) is under government scrutiny as CIA Director, Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin), attempts to dismantle the organization due to its global collateral damage accumulated during their “impossible missions.” Meanwhile, Ethan becomes obsessed, tracking and proving the existence of “The Syndicate,” a rogue spy agency that does not answer to any nation. It will take the entire crew, Benji (Simon Pegg), [William] Brandt (Jeremy Renner), and Luther (Ving Rhames) to take on this shadow organization in what may very well be their final mission.

Dark Day–Tami Roman (@TamiRoman) & Reggie Youngblood (@REGGIEBY1) Suffer a Miscarriage…

475047546-1024x683

Our thoughts and prayers are with Basketball Wives star, Tami Roman, and her boyfriend Reggie Youngblood. Today, Tami suffered a miscarriage as she entered her eleventh week of pregnancy. This would have been the 45 year old reality star/actress’s third child as she has two adult daughters, Jazz and Lyric, from her marriage to former NBA player, Kenny Anderson. Tami released an exclusive statement to E! News:

I am deeply saddened that after 10.5 weeks, we suffer this loss…We knew this would be an uphill battle. We were up against the odds. I have a prolapsed uterus and am diabetic. I battle bouts of hypoglycemia due to my diabetes and my blood pressure continually ran high. We were prayerful, we had and still have faith. We are not giving up.

Perhaps this means they intend to try and have another child. Either way there are few pains greater than the loss of a child. Reggie too released a statement:

This is a tough time for us. It is the worst pain I’ve felt since losing my mother. I want people to understand the sensitivity of this situation. We are hurting and negative comments, don’t help.

We agree negative comments do not help. If you would like offer some POSITIVE  words and condolences for Tami, you can leave them in the comments section below. We love you Tami!
