Five And Spice

When you think about it, it’s remarkable, really, just how many opportunities we have every day to do something new.  Much of the time it doesn’t feel like it.  Our days follow patterns.  We have baskets full of habits and well-worn ruts that we comfortably cruise along in.

And actually, a certain amount of repetition and stability in your life turns out to be really important and healthy.  Which makes perfect sense.  Nature is full of rhythms and patterns.  We reside within them, and if completely rhythmless we feel jostled and jarred and seriously uncomfortable.

But if we don’t keep our eyes open to all the myriad of tiny dips and swerves within the patterns, it can be easy to feel trapped in some sort of mold that looks a lot like same-old-same-old.

I forget sometimes, that I’m the one making the decision to walk down the exact same…

It’s Britney Bit$h! Pop Princess $15 Million X-Factor Deal Official!

18 Apr

Britney Spears
(like you didn't know, if you didn't well, welcome to Earth)

Haaay Now…. did you miss me….

I didn’t think so…. Let’s talk about whats going on at X-Factor USA shall we!

After months of speculations, rumors, and hypothesissss about who would be filling all of the empty seats at X-Factor USA, Britney Spears has sealed the deal for….

$15 Million Dollars….just for season 2!

DaaaaaaaYYYYYYUMMMM…..

Yep, thats right,  Ms. Spears will make more  in the next 6 months then what the population in my zip code will make in their whole lives.

Apparently this talent Judge’in thing pays really well

J-Lo’s contract was re-negotiated  for this current season of American Idol  for $20 Million.. .. SAY WHAT!  BALLIN’!

***Rant***

Where’s my cut?

All I’m saying is, you constantly hear shows rally for your participation, have you all up for hours on the phone voting and stuff….shooo that’s hard work too!

They tell us that  they’d be “nothing” without “us” the viewer, and they appreciate us tuning in..yada…yada…yada…

I would prefer that your appreciation be Quantified….Thank You!

I don’t know about you, but I perfer gratitude via PayPal…

We tune in….they get paid….and all we get is a bill from Direct TV at the end of the month for $100.

AnyWho!

***End Rant***

I Loves me some Britney Spears, many of her songs are on my life soundtrack.   I am oberly excited about her as a Judge on X-Factor, and I feel that she is just what the doctor ordered for the show,  any woman that shaves her head is definitely gonna keep it real! OUUKAY!

Now I really don’t think there will be 4th judge hired because they have expired most of their budget obtaining Britney.

Now the only hanging chad left is the Host.  Back in February Simon Cowell revealed that there will be 2 hosts for season 2, so this will definitely be interesting.

Auditions have started around the country, so if you have what it takes, don’t miss your chance to become a Star.

13 Apr

There is no greater way to travel then Luxury for Less.

If  you are thinking about planning a vacay (that’s country club for vacation)  or  a trip to vegas  there are some great  sales on jetsetter.com right now for The Signature Hotel @MGM Grand and at the Hard Rock Hotel  (Their pool Rehab is one of D best in Vegas!).  The sale allows you to book  though August 31 with rates starting from under $100 per night, but there is only 2 more days left to make a reservation through JetSetter.com.

The Signature at MGM Grand

On Sale From $95 / night  ($95 rate is sunday thru mon on this sale, but the weekend rate is discounted too)      Click Here

The Venetian

on sale from $189/night  reg. $250+ 

The Venetian is my one of my favorite Vegas Hotels because it is centrally located to everywhere you would want to be in Vegas. Although it wouldn’t be hard to spend days on end inside this hotel without going stir crazy, Vegas is your playground with  the “Duece” bus stop right out side to take you from uptown to downtown Las Vegas.

The Hard Rock Hotel

on sale from $64/night

Do Vegas like the Rock God that you are at The Hard Rock Hotel.   I like this hotel because it is, what it is, a party hotel. So if you are going to Vegas for some R&R and a serene environment, you might want to find another spot.

I also like it because of all of the cool music memorabilia that the hotel is emerged in, It’s like staying in a rock and roll museum and that’s pretty cool. Be advised that this hotel is East of the Vegas Strip so if you are looking to trollip up and down the strip as many want to , bring ya walking shoes if you stay here.

Summer is around the corner and I know money is tight for a lot of folks.. but the rooms at these all-suite hotels a spacious enough  for you and a group of friends to split the costs.

Enjoy!

And remember what happens in Vegas, may end up on YouTube or someones Timeline….

Vegas responsibly, holla!

Live! Sneak Peak at Whitney Houston’s last Film Appearance in “Sparkle”

7 Apr

Happy Saturday…..

T.D. Jakes produced the remake of the 1976 film “Sparkle”.   For all of you all who are unfamiliar with the movie like me (I wasn’t in the making yet as a human, I wasn’t born yet.) it’s about a young talented singer named Sparkle  played by the talented Jordin Sparks.

The story goes like this…..

Sparkle and her two sisters are raised by their single mother ,played by Whitney Houston. The sisters form a singing group and rise to fame.   The group experiences turmoil after one of their members turns to drugs and another achieves their desired fame all by herself.

I love a good perilous diva-esque movie, and I am definitely excited about it.  The movie comes out in theaters on August 17th, 2011.

FlashBack Monday! Look Out 4 Dem Gurlz With That Chicken Tetrazzini!

2 Apr

The year was 2009, and Maury Povich proved to the world that he would show no boundaries when it comes to exploiting the ignant and Hood-ni-ficent.

On this particular episode Alycia confronted her boyfriend Paul (pronounced P-a-w-u) about sleeping around with her best friend who had supposedly seduced her lover with some Chicken Tetrazinni.  At the time I thought this was some code word for private parts, but it soon became clear that they were actually talking about an italian dish. (who woulda thought?)

This particular episode of Maury has inspired songs, and the video has been remixed a whole lotta times on YouTube.   So flashback with me to one of the most comical Maury moments ever. *cue day dream music*

Holla!

Live: Twitter-Therapy Fail.. Spike Lee Did What?

29 Mar

Whoa……….

The block is hot in the twittersphere this week (translation: there have been several celeb’s socially hanging themselves on Twitter).

In a justice therapy session via twitter gone wrong, the one-stop-movie-shop Spike Lee is in all kinds of hot water today. The “Do The Right Thing” Director did the wrong thing by tweeting an address that he thought to be George Zimmerman’s to his 250,000 followers.

OM-Geezy, What?  The address did not belong to Zimmerman but it was that of Mr. and Mrs.  McClain who are in their 70’s. *mouth all open*

As expected soon after Lee tweeted the address, the McClain’s began receiving threats and had to leave their home. (whoa)

Late last night Spike Lee tweeted an apology ” I deeply apologize to the McClain family for re-tweeting their address. It was a mistake.”

……Uhh Spike, I don’t think the McClain’s, being 70 and all, are on twitter, you should probably give them a call, or buy them a penthouse or something, then send a fruit basket to the penthouse that you brought them. When you put an innocent elderly couple’s life in danger I don’t think saying sorry via twitter is gonna cut it, you know what I mean?

The McCains have since supposedly  retained a lawyer… oh my, they may be getting that penthouse after all. *shrug*

The Twittersphere can be a dangerous place for public figures, saying things in person can be denied, but in the TwitterVille once you press the lil’ birdie button, there’s no going back….

Well Spike it looks like theres no way around it, you are wrong for this one. Lucky for you, Lindsay Lohan is off of probation today,  and many will be wagering about how long she will be able to stay that way, which will distract most from your blurb. #The-Brighter-Side-Of-Things *cheese*

Tweet Often, Tweet Responsibly……
