[MUSIC VIDEO] "Supermodel"-SZA (@sza)!

The music industry is always turning out new artists. Most of them fall to the wayside like cobblestones in an abandoned graveyard, but every now and then a truly talented one comes along that reminds us just how magical music can be. As of July 31, 2017 that artist for us is none other than Sza!

Sza has already made waves with her first single, Love Galore, and now she is riding the wave with a new music video for her latest hit, Supermodel! check it out below!

Okay so we definitely love this video. It is so simple and deep at the same time! The fairies, kids, and the message of I do not need you to be whatever I want to be are a message of empowerment to women and girls everywhere to believe in themselves. Supermodel is so ethereal and just puts you in your feelings.

We have heard the song a number of times on the radio and as of last night on HBO’s Insecure as we watched Issa have no choice but to move on from her now ex-boyfriend, Lawrence. Either way we are going to have this single and video on repeat!

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Porsha Williams, is known for being vivacious and outspoken for whatever she believes in. Nowadays she is doing far more than just talking!

Porsha Williams has become an activist in the Black Lives Matter movement and in the last few hours was arrested in Kentucky at a protest outside the Kentucky Attorney General, David Cameron’s, home for Breonna Taylor!

As you may recall, Breonna Taylor was wrongfully killed, and her boyfriend was wounded and arrested, when police officers broke into her home, erroneously believing it was the home of a drug dealer. It has been nearly 150 days since this tragedy occurs and no officers have been arrested. Kentucky has since banned “no knock” warrants.

David, however, has controversially gotten engaged and been labeled my many activists as a traitor for his inaction and seeming apathy in this situation.

Porsha has posted a number of Instagram stories and posts pushing for the arrests of these aforementioned officers and now she is using her platform and presence to make a change.

A post shared by #PorshaWilliams (@porsha4real) on

We commend Porsha for “walking the walk” and “talking the talk.” We definitely know she has bail money because those Bravo and Dish Nation checks are nice we hear.

The other Housewives have not been as vocal, but we are sure we will see this play out on the upcoming thirteenth season of the series. It has already been confirmed that Porsha retained her peach with a rumored pay raise.

Thanks for Porsha for using your platform in service of the movement, your grandfather (Hosea Williams) would be proud! We officially forgive you for that Underground Railroad comment back in Season 6.

What do you think of Porsha’s newfound activism? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Since news first broke about the actress’s disappearance there has been an overwhelming showing of love and support from her friends and fans, notably actor, Tahj Mowry. He recently posted a heartwarming message in honor of her on social media.

My sweet Naya – to say that I am devastated would be an understatement. This is a nightmare. Everyday gets harder. However, I am holding onto hope that you will be found. ⁣ ⁣ We grew up together. We became adults together. We experienced so many firsts together. You were my first experience with everything; love, intimacy, heartbreak. We broke each others hearts and then mended them back together…more than once. I will never not think of you. No woman has ever measured up what you gave me or how you made me feel. I’ve never liked to admit it but I have never stopped loving you. A part of me always wished for the day where God would bring us back together to be what we dreamt we could have been. ⁣ ⁣ I pray deeply for the Rivera family and that God blankets them with strength, peace, and love right now. Mychal and Nickayla – you will always be like younger siblings to me and I love you dearly. I watched you two grow up into beautiful adults. George and Yolanda – whatever you need I am here for you. We are forever family and I love you. ⁣ ⁣ I ask everyone reading this to please lift up, along with the entire Rivera family, Ryan and Josey in prayer and to respect what they are going through during this time. I pray that God showers the entire family with strength and peace that only He can give. ⁣ ⁣ I still have faith. I still have hope. Let’s please all pray that she is found and brought home safely. ⁣ ⁣ Naya, I miss you deeply. I wish I got the chance to tell you that once more but I’m believing I will get that chance. I know deep down you’ve always known how I felt. I look forward to the day where I can see your beautiful face once more and tell you everything I’ve wanted to say that I didn’t get the chance to say. I love you forever. I always have and I always will. ⁣ ⁣ ♥️

This tragic and heartbreaking. We loved Naya as “Santana Lopez” from “Glee.”

Autumn soon learns there are a lot of players and problems in P-Valley. Keyshawn (Shannon Thornton), a new mother back deals with domestic violence. Diamond (Tyler Lepley) a handsome security guard protects the club and strippers with a two-fisted approach.

Brandee Evans as “Mercedes”

In the club, Clifford gives Autumn a job and has his star stripper, Mercedes (Brandee Evans), show her the ropes; hoping she will eventually replace Mercedes after she retires. Mercedes, however, has reservations about Autumn and is determined to focus on what brings her joy in life, while dealing with the shame and damnation her mother places on her for stripping. Meanwhile, a DL rapper Lil Murda (J. Alphonse Nicholson), tries to hustle Mercedes and Uncle Clifford into playing his new song while covering for his entourage’s antics.

Elsewhere, a mysterious, seemingly goodhearted man, Andre (Parker Sawyers), secretly photographs the dancers and ongoing of P-Valley!

Starz granted us access to a screener of the first episode of the series and we are now hooked. The show is very much so a new “The Players Club” with a modern update, and LGBT friendliness. We cannot wait to see more of the series and what is in store for all of the characters.

We do know for sure our friend to the site, Toni Bryce, is set to appear in the fifth episode of the series! Let’s hope this sets her on track to become a series’ regular in Season 2–which we are sure Starz will greenlight!

You can catch the series premiere of “P-Valley,” tomorrow night, 9 PM EST only on Starz!
