Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Billboard: Remembering Legendary Singer and lcon, Whitney Houston @balleralert Remembering Legendary Singer and Icon, Whitney Houston - blogged by @lanaladonna (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been six years since the death of legendary singer, actress, producer, and model, WhitneyHouston. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston died at 48 in 2012 after being found unconscious in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel. It was reported that the singer passed due to cocaine use and heart disease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s legacy included winning six Grammys and selling 170 million albums, singles, and videos over her career. Whitney, to this day, is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 songs and is the only woman to have two number-one Billboard 200 album awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston made her acting debut in “The Bodyguard” in 1992, where she performed the lead single from the film’s soundtrack, ‘I Will Always Love You.’ The song easily became a highlight of Houston’s career, and one of her signature records. It received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1994. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s pursuit in acting didn’t stop there. Aside from her appearance in Disney’s ‘Cinderella,’ she landed leading roles in ‘Waiting to Exhale’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whitney’s career contributed to breaking the color barrier that so many African-American artists faced. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this day we remember her legacy, career, angelic voice, and the contributions she made to the entertainment industry as we know it. Houston left behind her mother, two brothers, and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who died three years later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May Whitney Houston continue to Rest In Peace!

Adele, Bailey Jay, and Beyonce: a adelesp solange knowles (asolangeknowles there have only been two black winners in the last 20 years for album of the year there have been over 200 black artist who have performed 2017-02-13, 5:04 PM AGonIGSoapbox: Adele pulled back the curtain to what many in the audience were thinking. I know many in Staples were shocked that she was telling the TRUTH SO LOUD but ask yourself this: Why can The Empress or other Black Artists NOT win the most coveted award in Music? I surmise that the "voters" in Beyonce's case feel, "Eh, it's too easy for her. She does all that stuff naturally and doesn't have to work at it like Adele." The Empress gets punished because she's TOO F***IN DOPE! The same way Steve Nash beat out Kobe one year for MVP because the optics of a "little scrappy guy" beating out a 6'7" "gazelle" just looks better DESPITE the "gazelle" with the better stats. Hey, Adele's album was a big as you can get on all cylinders but as she eloquently explained here, "LEMONADE", was that next level sh**. Brittany Spears stumbling and bumbling in stage is over looked whereas let JLo trip on her costume and Harvey Levin is gonna have a camera on her toe nail polish. Another thing the Grammys does is "payback" artists that they missed in their height so that's why Kanye lost to Steely Dan and Herbie Hancock when he clearly had the superior work. You see if they give it to you at your height then that validates the ARTIST as the cultural and spiritual leader. That's why Ray Charles and the Dixie Chicks won the award after their heyday. They know what Beyonce means to the culture but do they want to validate that? You think they'd let Kanye get that power? Both answers are No. So Taylor Swift, Beck, Daft Punk, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", etc. etc. will continue to win and every blue moon you will get a L Boogie or Outkast winning but very few and far in between. @artemusgordon 17thsoulja BlackIG17th

Adele, Beautiful, and Beyonce: Carlos Santana Says Adele Won Over Beyoncé Because She Can "Sing, Sing" Caballerale Carlos Santana Says Adele Won Over Beyoncé Because She Can "Sing, Sing" -blogged by @BenitaShae ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For CarlosSantana, Adele winning Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammy's came as no surprise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing," Santana told AP. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very beautiful to look at and it's more like modeling kind of music - music to model a dress - she's not a singer, singer, with all respect to her," he said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beyoncé's ethereal set for "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles" was filled with flowers galore and a host of dancers emphasizing the importance motherhood and women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Santana believes Adele excels because when she performs it's just her and a microphone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Adele can sing, sing. She doesn't bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there and she just stood there and sang the song and that's it, and this is why she wins," Santana said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you agree with Carlos Santana?
