We all jammed to Beyoncé's "Grown Woman" in her fly new Pepsi commercial shaking it up, we all wanted more of that song! The word began to spread that it was going to be the hot new single to her album that we have all been waiting for. Bey, give it to us!!
Produced by Timbaland and co-written by The-Dream, "Grown Woman" is a high-energy female anthem driven by tribal vocals and percussion, with fans screaming in the background.
I was dancing around my office like, "Get it!!" ...when she said "cause I got a cute face and my booty so fat!"
Enjoy listening below and let's hope it releases to iTunes soon!
I hope that you enjoy this ClassyBlackGirl Beyoncé Song!
Toya Harris from Married to Medicine is the prettiest UNCLASSIEST member of the cast-and I'm sorry Kari does not count(because she is clearly gutter trash-pretending NOT to be). Like I have said before, Kari she is no Kim Zolciak. I have compiled a Quick 10 List of Toya's characteristics and why she has NO CLASS!
Here is my ClassyBlackGirl Take on Toya Harris: 1. Toya Harris is in the barber shop with her husband. Can't he have a FEW moments to himself, while he gets his hair cut?
2. Toya Harris hosted a party on the same night as her friend. Why would she host a party on the same night at Dr. Jackie?? Who Does that??
3. Toya Harris speaks extremely poor English, "That's what paranoid people does." <<
Its Your ClassyBlackGirl giving you a recap on the Far East Movement Hip Hop Concert that I attended last week!!
Arriving about 45 minutes before the group, Far East Movement, was slated to perform I casually strolled to the third floor. When the Elevator doors opened I could see that Macy's had been positively transformed into a hip hop club! Top 40 music was thumping and people of all ages were dancing and had crowded the empty stage. This was going to be an outstanding and fun event!!...I was even getting my two step on!!...and I could tell that these eager concert goers were HYPED to see the Far East Movement!
The Far East Movement is compromised of 4 hip Hop Heads. They started out working as interns at Interscope Records dreaming big dreams of success and now they rock their own stages around the world! The Far East Movement is best known for their Uber Hit, "Like a G6."
Far East Movement's knowledge and respect of the hip hop culture, music and history was so admirable to a girl like me who grew up in the early stages of the hip hop era, I immediately became endeared to the group!
Far East Movement commanded the stage in a way that I have not witnessed in a long time and I was instantly transformed to my hip hop days just listening to their authentic lyrics. The Far East Movement is stylish and hot to watch and their fans poured out of everywhere. Hundreds of people filled the third floor and Macy's and people were even crowded on the steps and standing on the leather couches just to catch a glimpse of the Far East Movement.
Smashbox Cosmetics was doing free makeovers and Pinkberry Yogurt company was giving away delicious frozen yogurt on the unusually hot San Francisco afternoon!
All in All this concert was hot, fun and I am excited to see how FAR the Far East Movement is going to rise! Check out More About the Far East Movement by clicking here!
If you are a fan of Beyoncé, like I am, I bet you are loving all of these photos of Queen Bey, Jigga and Blue Ivy. I simply cannot get enough of the Bad Ass Beyonce! Most of us are wondering under hushed voices is Beyoncé Pregnant Again? The good folks gossip is that Beyoncé is pregnant again and is excited to expand her already fabulous family!
On Good Morning America Beyoncé recently shared that she wanted more children! Beyoncé also opened up that she feels that Blue Ivy could be a bit lonely,
"I think my daughter needs some company,"
Beyoncé is a famous "big sister" and she said that, "I love being a Big Sister!"
Beyoncé is supposedly 2 months pregnant already!!...and will be announcing the pregnancy at the BET Awards on June 30th....We shall see!!... Beyoncé and Jay-Z are such a Hip Hop Couple.
According to idigitaltimes.com,
"The insider who shared that Beyonce is two months pregnanat said that Beyonce is NOT using outside photographers so that she can hide her pregnancy until she is out the first tri-mester. There are no Beyonce Preganant photos allowed yet! But that is what a good classy woman does, waits until the first trimester, and then its all about the baby bump-but NOT Kardashian Style.
At the Met gala this past week Beyonce rocked a printed Givenchy gown that showed a slightly thicker Beyonce. Hips were showing and ta-ta's were poppin! There was a mini baby bump showing.
Tell us what you think about Beyonce having another baby and what should she name the next baby?

From wannabe actress to Hollywood superstar and Reality TV Queen, Nene Leakes has got it all. But her stardom started at Bravo.
Nene Leakes appeared in a Watch What Happens Live Bravo Special with Andy Cohen as he asked the Real Questions about how Real Housewives of Atlanta started and all of the Dirt.
Nene Leakes answered honestly and openly about her co-stars, her life and her future. Here are some quality quotes that sum up the interview and give you an idea about Nene Leakes thoughts about her reality TV co-stars and friends.
Nobody says "Hookah!" like Nene Leakes honey! Nene Leaks on BEING on The Real Housewives of ATL
"Im not trying to represent every Black woman in America, I represent Nene Leaks, and I represent her well!"
Nene Leaks will Always Dislike Sheree Whitfield
"I think Sheree is very evil, very mean and I think that Sheree is a true bitch."
On this weeks episode of Married to Medicine we got a see a very maternal side of Mariah Huq. Dr. Aydin Huq, her husband, arrived home with their two children, Lauren and Ethan. Mariah was cooking for real and in real pots(Good Ones too!)
The two beautiful Huq children, Lauren and Ethan, discussed their day at school. I was impressed watching Mariah Huq looking and acting like a regular mother and wife. On Reality Television so many women work to have the semblance of being so wealthy that they don't cook or do any form of housework.
Side Note: Personally, I would never have another person regularly cooking for my husband, I don't care HOW rich I am. Im all about that ManTrap. Another woman cooking for him is almost like another woman putting the OTHER ManTrap on him...
Ethan Huq had been misbehaving in school and Mariah began to chastise him in a sweet but very firm manner. I appreciate that Mariah's discipline did not involve any threats, profanity or unnecessary physical punishment.
Mariah admitted to being the disciplinarian of the couple.
And it was funny when spanking was mentioned Mariah was like, "Whut? We don't spank." In case CPS was watching. I KNOW Mariah gets with her kids!
I could also see that Mariah and Aydin have a good relationship with each other. They talk as friends and I loved that Aydin listened. It was dramatically different than the way that Toya and her husband interacted with each other, when Toya fussed about Mariah with him.
Whats wrong with Toya Harris? Married to Medicine is like Real Housewives of Atlanta meets Bad Girls Club! Every woman on the show is trying to stake her claim as the baddest bish to stay on the show and eventually climb to the Nene Leaks height of success.
One word of advice, there will never be another Nene Leaks, there just won't. She came with that personality at the right time.
However Toya Bush-Harris on Married to Medicine is a hot ass mess. Whats wrong with Toya Harris? She started a fight with Mariah Huq, by talking about her daughters paternity, talking about her mother and then threw water on Mariah at a Party. While I would never define Mariah Huq as Classy, she was as composed as one could be expected to be under the circumstances.
Toya Harris actually reminds me of those annoying little Flies that fly around when you are at an outdoor restaurant. They buzz, make irritating noise and cause your meal to be less enjoyable because you are spending half of the time shewing them away!!...just like Toya.
Toya butts in on her husbands conversation with his business partners from Nomad MD. Toya discusses HER thoughts. She wanted to know WHEN they were going to open the buisness. Huh? Whats wrong with Toya Harris? If Toya honestly felt like she had something of value to say, the middle of the meeting was NOT the appropriate time. She should have been serving lemonade not her mouth. Her husband truly looked irritated, but he is so mild tempered that he patiently "handled her." Which he should have done, but dayum.
Toya and her husband go out for lunch where the other people who were supposed to go to lunch with them didnt show up. The young couple have a little bit of time to spend together and enjoy a meal. Toya starts talking about the fight between her and Mariah Huq. She wants an apology. Whats wrong with Toya Harris?
"Im tired of talking about Mariah."
That's what Toya's husband said. Thats a sign. And then Toya starts crying. Her husband has to patiently handle her again. Toya Harris needs a lot of attention. What Toya really needs is a Job. Something to occupy her time, maybe an organization to work with so that she does not have to focus on the lives of other people. And this woman has kids!! Do they NOT have a PTA in Atlanta?
Naomi is a multi-dimensional ClassyBlackGirl. She is a Beauty Chick, A Model Chick, A Weave Chick and A Business Chick! And here is Naomi Campbell rocking the Blonde properly!!...Tell me what you think!!
Here are a few shots of Naomi's Cover and Spread on the Cover of Vogue Brazil's May Issue! All Shot by Fab Photographer: Tom Munro
This hair "application" is Supreme!!...Windblown and Gone with the Wind Fabulous!
Channeling that Inner Beyoncé! ... Her Breasts are BEYOND the Truth!!
This picture is amazing, cream dress on sexy brown skin!! Honey if you have not made an appointment with your stylist YET to go Blonde!!
And who doesn't want a Blinged Out T-shirt with their name on it??
Naomi Campbell is positively beautiful!! And she shows us Brown Girls that you can wear Blonde and be a ClassyBlackGirl!
Super Model British Black Girl, Naomi Campbell, 42, has been in a 5 year relationship with her Russian billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, but now its on ice. They are "taking a break" is the word. *side-eye*
Naomi Campbell, how are you taking a break from somebody's husband tho? I actually love Naomi Campbell with all of her fits and fabulousness. While I would never want to be known for my outbusrts and a**whoopins, I get that her behavior and beauty keep her on the cover of magazines...and frankly thats her job! And she does it WELL!
However, I chuckle when I think about the fact that Naomi Campbell has taken Side Chick Status to a whole other level! Vladimir Doronin is fione and all but he has been married to the same woman, Ekaterina for over 30 years! And they have a teenage daughter!
Vlad's relationship has not stopped Side Chick Superstar, Naomi Campbell, from getting her's though!!...Here are 10 reasons why Naomi Campbell is a Side Chick SuperStar:
1. She is side chick to a Billionaire Real Estate Mogul, not the bus driver in the apartment upstairs!
2. Naomi Campbell may be a Side Chick SuperStar, but she stays with 'em for a while! She has been dating old boy since 2008! Most of us cant keep a LEGIT boyfriend that long!
3. Naomi might be a side chick, but her man doesnt slip her weave money-she gets houses built! Doronin is building Campbell a futuristic mansion-in Moscow!! She got that Coco Vino!!...and wait...she is in Moscow-like his wife!! #ClutchThePearls
4. Vlad Doronin happily appears in public with Naomi. She doesnt get typical side chick treatment! They are holding hands and making plans!
5. Naomi Campbell likes a side of business with her pleasure! Business is one of the reasons that Naomi Campbell and Vladimir Doronin are together is a mutual benefit besides the "freak factor." When Naomi Campbell walks into any of Doronin's hotels and properties-people notice...and want to visit and do business with him. In turn he keeps her lined-up! So Naomi gets to be an unofficial spokes model for his business for a fee....hmm...I mean if you are going to be doing it-do it right.
6. Naomi's life does NOT revolve around Vlad's! She has a mighty career that has spanned a few decades! Right now her Model show "The Face" is a Hit and she is on the Cover of Vogue Brazil.
7. She still gets her party on with or without Vlad. While Naomi and Vlad have been photographed many times, she just rocked the Oscars solo and dished.
8. She isn't tripping. Vlad has been seen partying in the States with a particular blonde. Naomi is Kanye shrugging-at least publicly. And we all know that Naomi is famous for that Nasty attitude! She knows her role and realizes that she is NOT the wife.
9. She gets the "break up to make-up" drama. She knows that good sex and another phat RING or pricey gift is on the way.
10. Naomi Campbell isnt trying to be the wife-she actually has the better life.
I am a Seething Side Chick Hater, but I cant really hate on Naomi. Vlad's wife kno
I was getting ready to put my laptop down. When I saw that one of my favorite actresses, Catherine Zeta Jones was in the Headlines: Catherine Zeta Jones Checks in For Bi-Polar Disorder "maintenance." Whoa. It made me think and wonder-are Sistas suffering from this as well??...of course we are suffering from Bi-Polar Disorder.
Black people traditionally do not go see psychiatrist's or "head doctors." I am in close relationship with the Lord, however I do feel like when you are in mental instability the remedy is not Prayer. You need help in the same way that you need insulin or high blood pressure medication. Black people are still feeling like there is a stigma attached to mental illness or something that only white people get treated for.
I hope that if you or anybody that you know may suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder or any other mental issues, that you would read this and do more research. According to BlackHealthZone.com
Bipolar disorder involves periods of excitability (mania) alternating with periods of depression. The "mood swings" between mania and depression can be very abrupt.
The manic phase may last from days to months and can include the following symptoms:
• Agitation or irritation
• Elevated mood
o Increased energy
o Lack of self-control
o Racing thoughts
• Inflated self-esteem (delusions of grandeur, false beliefs in special abilities)
• Little need for sleep
• Over-involvement in activities
• Poor temper control
• Reckless behavior
o Binge eating, drinking, and/or drug use
o Impaired judgment
o Sexual promiscuity
o Spending sprees
• Tendency to be easily distracted
These symptoms of mania are seen with bipolar disorder I. In people with bipolar disorder II, hypomanic episodes involve similar symptoms that are less intense.
The depressed phase of both types of bipolar disorder involves very serious symptoms of major depression:
• Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
• Eating disturbances
o Loss of appetite and weight loss
o Overeating and weight gain
• Fatigue or listlessness
• Feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness and/or guilt
• Loss of self-esteem
• Persistent sadness
• Persistent thoughts of death
• Sleep disturbances
• Excessive sleepiness
• Inability to sleep
• Suicidal thoughts
• Withdrawal from activities that were once enjoyed
• Withdrawal from friends
There is a high risk of suicide with bipolar disorder. While in either phase, patients may abuse alcohol or other substances, which can worsen the symptoms.
Sometimes there is an overlap between the two phases. Manic and depressive symptoms may occur simultaneously or in quick succession in what is called a mixed state.
For the manic phase of bipolar disorder, antipsychotic medications, lithium, and mood stabilizers are typically used. For the depressive phase, antidepressants are sometimes used, with or without the manic phase treatment.
There is very little long-term evidence suggesting that any medication has great success in the maintenance phase. However, in studies that followed patients for 2 years, lithium and some antipsychotics were found to be moderately successful.
Antipsychotic drugs can help a person who has lost touch with reality. Anti-anxiety drugs, such as benzodiazepines, may also help. The patient may need to stay in a hospital until his or her mood has stabilized and symptoms are under control.
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) may be used to treat bipolar disorder. ECT is a psychiatric treatment that uses an electrical current to cause a brief seizure of the central nervous system while
I have to admit I am very uncomfortable with Lil Scrappy's Daddy Mama, Mama Dee, and his her non blending weave. The way that she deals with her son reminds me of how Jody acted with his Mama. He cant move until she says move.
While Mama Dee's hair is very strange and needs to be replaced, I need Mama Dee to stop acting like she has an unnatural relationship with her son. Okay, the way that she talks about how fine Buckeey is also makes me a bit uncomfortable, I'm not going to lie. But back to this Baby Boy thing that Mama Dee has going on with Lil Scrappy.
I believe that Mama Dee likes Buckeey for Lil Scrappy because she can control and manipulate her dumb ass. Pulling up to the curb in that raggedy cadillac. *side-eye* The fact that she invited Buckeey to the studio and her son is engaged is so dirty.
It's bad enough that Mama Dee has this imaginary kingdom that she presides over(She is the King Queen). Mama Dee insists on dragging her son and this poor girl Buckeey into her madness. Mama Dee is filling Buckeey's head with ideas that she might still have an option to be with Lil Scrappy. Lil Scrappy needs to let his Mama Dee know whats up and that she needs her own-"partner."
"Men and Women in Our Lives will come and Go?"
The reason that Mama Dee cant stand Erica is because just like her, Erica aint takin no mess! And they both kinda have that slightly mannish jaw, which is probably why Erica put the smack down on Buckeey outside of the Club. And maybe Lil Scrappy wanted a woman like his Mama-scary!
Lil Scrappy can tell the camera that his Mama is overstepping her boundaries, but when they sit down-he aint talking.
The only one really getting hurt in Mama Dee's manipulation is Buckeey. Shae Buckeey Johnson can't move on because she has an unrealistic relationship with her old jump-off's Mama. #WhereTheyDoThatAt
Erica Dixon aint bowing down Daddy Dee, so get some good Indian Hair, get a life and tell Buckeey to focus on getting her own man. Even if Lil Scrappy DID decided that he wanted her, after all of this-would Buckeey really want him back?
I have been a big Michael Phelps fan. I just have, he is super talented and kinda sexy. Whats not to like? And I in turn, kinda didnt like Ryan Lochte. During the Olympics Lochte kinda seemed like a jerk. I totally rolled my eyes when I saw that Ryan Lochte had a reality show out. I mean damn, who doesnt??... and who the hell wants to watch, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?
Ryan Lochte, The Male Kim Kardashian When Ryan Lochte said that he wanted to be the male version of Kim Kardashian, I was like-uhhh. Good Lord, like we need another one of those right? OMG. When the show started I was immediately drawn to the television screen, for several reasons:
* Ryan Lochte is KINDA FIONE. I guess he wasn't Michael Phelps and I just wasnt checking for him during the Olympics but I missed out!
* His Body is Kickin'!
* His white boy fashion swag is kinda hot
* He lives like a Rock Star in Gainsville, Mississppi, who does that?
* He is Funny as Hell, he reminds me of white frat boys from college
* JEAH!....you have to watch the show to know what that means
* His family life is cool, he has agressive Sisters and a mom that checks him
* He is the most humble dude that I have ever seen on television
* I KNOW that he likes Black girls, he just hasnt met me yet
And OMG...He was playing Flag Football with a Red Cup. And we all know whats in that Red Cup!
What Would Ryan Lochte Do? What Would Ryan Lochte Do, is wholesome, funny and a breath of fresh air. I was kinda thinking, Michael Phelps was the one smoking weed? Ryan Lochte comes off a bit of an air head, but Im hoping that its just an act. Real talk though, he is so damn cute that it doesnt matter. He also kinda has some sort of Urban Swag that I cant quite put my finger on but I have a bad feeling that Im going to be saying, "Turn it up."
When Ryan explained what a won ton was to his date and didnt look at this dumb ass girl like a fool, I was totally endeared to him!
I actually cant wait until Sundays, What Would Ryan Lochte do, is on my new Reality TV Radar. There isnt much trash, very little profanity and its still entertaining as hell.
I think that Ryan Lochte is just so damn fine and funny though, that I would watch the show if he was twiddling his thumbs and saying Jeah for 30 minutes a week! What Would Ryan Lochte do?....I will be tuning in to see!
