B. Scott & BET Let Bygones Be Bygones

  
What a difference 2 years and a settlement makes!

Blogger, YouTuber, and Podcaster B Scott sat front row with Leverne Cox at The BET Awards this past Sunday. I was shocked to see that B Scott attended the event being that she and the network had such a storied past. 

Let me bring you up to speed if you’re not familiar with the story. B Scott was hired to work the red carpet at the 2013 Bet Awards, keep in mind that B Scott is transgendered and had worked for the network previously with no issue. Also keep in kind that her wardrobe was approved prior to going on the red carpet. To make a long story short Scott was unceremoniously yanked from the red carpet after doing her first interview and made to change from her women’s wear into men’s wear. She was also asked to remove her make-up and pull her hair back. Suffice to say B Scott and her Love Muffins were not happy! B. Scott sued and litigation ensued. The case was settled. Fast forward to Sunday’s show and B Scott is sitting front row. So all seems to be well.

Check out what B Scott had to say regarding the situation:

Dear love muffins,

Since I started my career, it’s always been important for me to give each opportunity my best — which includes presenting myself in a manner that I feel is true for me.

Now that BET and I have reached a settlement that I am more than pleased with, it was truly wonderful to be able to attend the BET Awards, walk the red carpet, and sit front row in the manner I originally intended.

Since my dust up with BET, I’m sure you love muffins have seen an increase in LGBT representation on the network. It makes my heart smile to know that I was a part of that change.

This is much bigger than being transgender, this is about everyone having the equal right to express themselves however they choose.

I would like to thank all my love muffins, BET, Debra Lee and Stephen Hill.

Double Kisses xoxo!

B. Scott

Nene Leakes Leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta

  

(Phote Credit:Instagram @NeNeLeakes)

So…Nene Leakes has decided to leave the reality series Real Housewives of Atlanta after 8 seasons according to People Magazine. Now if we’re being honest Nene is Bravo’s biggest star. Hate her or love her you can’t deny that! It will be interesting to see how the other housewives(or not) will fare without Leakes. 

I can’t really see one housewife that will be able to rise to the occasion. The trip second trip they took last season without NeNe was very boring, and a lot of the conversation was about NeNe, and she wasn’t even there. While Kandi has “the most successful” spinoffs(she had to let the blogs know this because you care)  I don’t see her being able to sustain The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

I will miss Nene on RHOA, I can honestly say I may tune out if Bravo doesn’t bring the heat with new season. They honestly need to completely clean house. I could do without Cynthia and Pheadra. Kenya can stay, as much as I don’t care for her, she makes good reality TV. Claudia and Demetria were pointless. I know people will say Claudia triumphed over Nene, but if we’re being honest most of her materials came from blogs she read before filming. So yes it may have been hilarious when they showed it on TV to the untrained eye, but most of what she said I had already heard. Bottom line she wasn’t original. Porsha can stay she seems to coming into her own, she just needs to work on her reading skills when it come to reunions tho.

You can say what you want about Nene, but you will never say she is a dumb girl. I honestly think she stepped away to show Bravo and the other housewives her value. Nene has a reason and plan behind this decision you can bet your bottom dollar on that! Nene will be just fine with or without RHOA. She is dynamic, polarizing, and her one liners are EPIC!

Tune In Tuesday: Wildheart-Miguel

  
Miguel’s new album Wildheart dropped today(actually it was available yesterday). The album has 13 songs and guest appearances(Lenny Kravitz/Kurrupt). I liked the first single, Coffee(F*cking) and will most likely like the rest of the album.

 Miguel normally puts out consistently good music, but we will see. I am currently listening to the album and you can take a listen below:

Tune In Tuesday: Dreams Worth More Than Money-Meek Mill

  
So…One half of Omeeka AKA Meek Mill dropped his new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. The album has 14 songs and is heavy on guest appearances(Nicki, Diddy, etc.) The fact that the album has so many guest appearances speaks volumes to me, to me it says that Meek can’t hold down a entire album solo.

That’s not a diss to Meek, it’s just an observation. There aren’t many rappers that can hold down a whole album solo. I will be the first to say I am not a Meek Mill stan, he has a few songs that I like, but he doesn’t have a project that I could listen to without skipping tracks. We are going to see what this new album is talmabout. I may review it or I may not depending on how I feel after listening.

[LISTEN]Ratchet Song of the Week: That’s My Best Friend-Tokyo Vanity

 
As you all know we all need a little bit of ratchet in our lives! The ratchet song of the week is That’s My Best Friend it comes from Vine’s own Tokyo Vanity. When I first saw the 30 second Vine video that spawned the ringtone, I thought to myself this needs to be full song, and what did Tokyo do? She went and did an enitre song. Look at God! 

This song provides me with the right amount of ratchetness to meet my weekly ratchet quota. I love this song as simplistic as it may be, it’s just what I need! Take a listen below and get your weekly dose of ratchet. Trust me you’ll thank me later!

Ayeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

[LISTEN] NEW MUSIC-NO SLEEEP-JANET JACKSON

  

Ms. Jackson if you’re NASTY is back with new music!

The song is titled, No Sleep, and it was written and produced by Janet, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The song is exactly what I needed from Janet. The song gives me a Funny How Time Flies/ That’s The Way Love Goes feel, without sounding dated. I am so glad Janet didn’t try to fit into popular music with this release. She went with her tried and true formula and it works! I am also glad she reconnected with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, I hope they take the healm of this album. Janet *taps shoulder* steer clear of Jermaine Dupri for this album PRETTY PLEASE!?!

This single has me very interested to see what this eleventh studio album will sound like.  Since I preordered the album with hopes of being able to get a coveted golden ticket to her recently announced world tour, but a las no such luck thanks to scalper or “brokers” as they call themselves. I am hoping Janet will add another Atlanta show. As much as I love Janet, I WILL NOT pay 1K for lawn seat! It ain’t happenin! 

Take a listen to Janet’s new song below:

[WATCH] Coffee(F*cking)-Miguel

 
So…Miguel decided he was going to go above and beyond to quell those pesky gay rumors with his new video for Coffee(F*cking). There is loads and loads of dry hunching,kissing, throat grabbing *yawns* I guess the video fits the songs and the sexy theme from his new album WILDHEART. 

The love interest in the video is very attractive. The video gives me the same *side-eye* I had when I first heard, P*ssy Is Mine from Miguel’s second album, but if he likes it I love it.  Stunts and shows aside, one thing I will say about Miguel is, he consistently puts out good music. I have nothing shady to say about that. 

Take a look at the dry hunch fest below:

[VIDEO]IF I DON’T HAVE YOU(LYRIC VIDEO)-TAMAR BRAXTON

  

Tamartians Rejoice! 

She! Me! Her! AKA Tamar Braxton has released the lyric video for her new single, If I Don’t Have You. I am really not HERE for the lyric videos, but hey I’m sure there is someone out there who enjoys watching PowerPoint presentations with words and music, and I am here to give be people what they want! 

The video uses the newspaper effect. Tamar *taps shoulder* I need the real video pumpkin. The song comes from Tamar’s upcoming album, Calling All Lovers, due out on July 31. We can expect the new season of  WeTv series,Tamar and Vince, to probably premiere around that same time. The Herbert’s are very strategic when it comes to album set-up.
