Don't Count This Reboot Out Yet!- Annie: REVIEW

    
Don't Count This Reboot Out Yet!- Annie: REVIEW
Android app on Google Play

This rejuvenated version of Annie hits theaters just in time for Christmas. Staring Oscar nominee Quavezhané Wallis as Annie, a tough foster kid in New York who was abandoned as a toddler but has never given up hope on finding her parents. Cameron Diaz is her foster mother, Miss Hannigan. Oscar winner Jaime Foxx plays New York Business tycoon Will Stacks who takes her into his care at first for selfish gain as he thinks it will be good for his image while he runs for Mayor. Diaz is amusing as the mean, bitter Miss Hannigan. Stuck in her glory days of the 90's she tells stories of when she was once in the group C&C Music Factory and how she was almost one of Hootie's blowfish though she falls short of being as hilarious as Carol Burnett in the original 1982 on screen adaptation. Foxx is entertaining as Stacks, a self absorbed germaphobe who made millions in the mobile phone business and is willing to do almost anything to win the Mayoral race, even care for a foster kid to help his image and boost his polls. At first he doesn't like the idea but with persuasion from his loyal assistant Grace played by Rose Byrne he learns to more nurturing and begins to really care for Annie's welfare.

The kids will really like this updated musical using most of the original songs as well as a couple new ones Pop star Sia and Greg Kurstin who has written hits for Kelly Clarkson, Lily Allen, and P!nk. Produced by Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett- Smith and Will Smith you get the feeling that while they may have given input, for the most part they sat back and let the movie take shape. Which was wise, I don't know how I would have felt if it included a rap version of one the original songs. It honestly would have drawn focus away from the new story and characters we are being re introduced to. With the musical's original setting being 1933, the upgrades were very necessary and went over well. There are critics that say it didn't include much music for a musical. Many of the songs had to be dropped because they were no longer relevant. For anyone criticizing the "look" of this new Annie, you have to remember that this was originally supposed to be the star vehicle for Will and Jada's daughter Willow, just as The Karate Kid was for their son but she had outgrown the role. And come on, were we really going to still call him 'Daddy Warbucks'?

Concert Review: On The Run Tour w/ Beyonce and Jay-Z July 7, 2014



On July 7, 2014 Mr. and Mrs. Carter's "On The Run Tour" came to Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. My fiancé and I had been anticipating this show since the tour dates were announced back in the spring. Although we had seen Beyonce and Jay-Z perform live on many occasions this would be our first time seeing them share the same stage as co-headliners.

Ashley (fiancé) and I arrived at the venue around 6:30 PM. The show was scheduled to kick off around 8:00 PM so we had plenty of time to drink and socialize with fellow concert attendees. However, maneuvering through the crowd in the general concession area was quite challenging. It was extremely congested with inappropriately dressed ratchets and scrubs alike. Although we had hoped to purchase some tour paraphernalia from one of the many souvenir booths, neither Ashley nor myself had the patience to wait in any line unless it was for snacks or alcohol.

After we purchased our concessions, we headed down to our seat assignments. I was fortunate enough to find field seats, section C-3 during the exclusive pre-sale. This concert was one of a few Mother's Day gifts for my lady. Like so many others, I felt that the ticket pricing for this tour was a bit ridiculous and unfair. In fact, our presence at this show can be attributed to my 2013 tax return. Had I not received it, we may not have been able to attend.

From 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM, I was getting faded off Miller Lites while listening to Ashley ridicule the many audacious females walking around the field. Let's be clear: I am lifetime supporter of voluptuous and curvaceous women but ya'll shouldn't wear mid-drifts if your mid-section is hanging over your waistline (not in public anyway). It was beyond obvious this was a Beyonce crowd. Although I'm supposed to be a "hip hop head", I'm not too proud to admit that she's clearly the bigger draw in this scenario.



Around 8:50 PM, the lights went out and the crowd screamed. There is black and white footage of Beyonce & Jay-Z depicting them as "The Queen" and "The Gangster". A narrative accompanied the footage but it was hard to decipher through the roaring audience. Anyway, the film clips continued with many scenes of Mr. & Mrs. Carter firing automatic weapons, hiding out in diners, and running from the law. Needless to say, this intro was quite entertaining and made for a perfect transition into the show opener, "'03 Bonnie and Clyde".

It was a very exciting show with high production value. Most of the show consisted of Beyonce and Jay-Z alternating stage time every two songs, only appearing together on stage 4 or 5 times during the 2 hour performance. Jay-Z performed many of his hits including "Dirt Off Your Shoulder", "U Don't Know" "99 Problems" "Big Pimpin'", "Tom Ford", "Uknowigotit", "On To The Next One", "Song Cry" and "Hard Knock Life".

Although Jay rocked the crowd all night, it was Beyonce who stole the show. She is an incredible performer. In fact she had more stage time than her husband which, quite honestly, was expected. She performed many of her hits including "Run The World (Girls)", "Love On Top", "If I Were A Boy", "Single Ladies", "Crazy In Love", and "Flawless". Unfortunately, she didn't perform "Get Me Bodied" or "Freekum Dress" which are my personal favorites.

Overall, Beyonce and Jay-Z gave a fantastic performance. If you have a chance to catch the On The Run Tour this Summer, I highly recommend it. If the excessive pricing is turning you off, keep searching for deals online. Although I bought my tickets well in advance, my fiancé found tickets literally the night before in better s

No one is buying Jay Z & Beyonce's "On The Run" Tour Tickets?


Beyonce is pregnant! Jay Z is cheating! Beyonce is cheating! Solange, Beyonce's sister, is fighting with Jay! The headlines are all over the internet and splashed on the supermarket rag racks.

Is any of it true? No, none of it. Here's what is true: tickets are selling slow as molasses for the Jay Z-Beyonce "On the Run" tour of stadiums that's set to start in 10 days.
Right now, there are over 11,000 tickets in motion on StubHub for the couple's July 11th show at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. Several more thousand are available for the second show, on July 12th.

Even on Ticketmaster.com's own system, a quick check shows a very bald stadium, with lots of tickets for sale and official resale. Right now, getting to see the first couple of modern R&B is pretty simple. And relatively inexpensive.
All told, Beyonce and Jay Z are going to play 17 stadium dates in the US and two in Canada beginning June 25 in Miami. But right now, tickets are available in every city and at every price.

What's happening? Over saturation. Jay Z played a year long tour with Justin Timberlake, for an album- "Magna Carta Holy Grail"- that was given away for free by Samsung. Beyonce already toured. She just finished the worldwide "Mrs. Carter" tour in March 2014. It took in over $229 million.

Even with her "Visual" album scoring a big first month last December, Beyonce just hasn't had a breakout single like "Single Ladies" or "Crazy in Love." The album is off the top 200 for a while now. Jay Z's is long gone.

Maybe this would have worked at smaller venues.
And the gossip? With no denials, but lots of "unnamed sources," my guess it's mostly made up to keep some interest in the couple while they're on tour. Just wait for some "staged" episodes to lure in passive ticketholders

Dame Dash Speaks on Black Businesses Not Sticking Together & The Jay-Z vs. Solange Incident (Video)



Dame Dash speaks to Hip-Hop Motivation. Still tongue in cheek comical while sharing street-level wisdom. Check out his commentary above about how to handle the Jigga-Solange elevator incident and fallout. Back in the day, Dash and The Roc fam would have laughed the whole incident off (or laughed at Jay if he couldn't find humor in how silly the whole thing was).

"If he was still hung out with us, we would've been roasting him."

- Dame Dash

Kind of brings the phrase, "Small things to a giant," to mind, doesn't it? More after the jump, as Dame speaks on 'the trouble with Black folk.'

Damn. Think he is kinda down on Steve Stoute, huh?

Jay-Z LAWSUIT

    
Jay-Z LAWSUIT

Jay Z's the hardest working man in show biz ... so claim his lawyers, who say the rapper has such a "grueling" work schedule he can't possibly make time for what they say is a ridiculous lawsuit.

A guy who sued Jay over his Roc-A-Fella logo wants the mogul to sit for a deposition next month. The man says he designed the art back in 1995 and now wants $7 mil for his creation.
