Beautiful, Children, and Memes: My Black Will Forever Be Beautiful @balleralert My Black Will Forever Be Beautiful - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don’t need anyone to tell us how beautiful, talented, sophisticated, and talented we are. Many of us have known how unique we are from the beginning. But to see everyone come together for something as positive as 'Black Panther' is simply amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only are we dressing for the cause but it is becoming an everyday statement with rocking our natural textures, African prints, and just appreciating our Melanin more. Many may say that we are overdoing it but there is no such thing. We just haven’t been doing it enough. Understand that we are simply appreciating our culture for what it is and not giving a damn about what any has to say about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am unsure why people are surprised at how black people come together. We can come together for a great cause and support our own. Understand that this is only the beginning for our culture. No need to bring each other down. We are here to uplift and bring each other together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember, our black will forever be beautiful. Don’t allow anyone to tell you different. Continue to educate our children every moment we get, so that it doesn’t seem like a fad to others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This may be new to some, but baby our melanin been popping!

The popular accessory is a soft, round cap with a flat crown, typically made of knitted wool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Its versatility and sleek style has caused for the entire world to enjoy this timeless piece. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in October of 2017, InStyle predicted the piece would be the “chicest fall accessory” of the 2017-2018 Fall and Winter seasons, after being flaunted on the runway of Paris Fashion Week. It’s safe to say, their predictions were head-on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your favorite celebrities have been spotted wearing the stylish headpiece, from KeyshiaKaoir to CardiB. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may choose to play it safe with the classic, black beret, adding “classic Hollywood” to their look in an instant, while others may go for a more modern, sassier look with the red one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, if you are looking to dab into your inner "Clueless" moment, the dainty beret is the perfect go-to accessory while it's still cold outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you style your beret?

Do It Again, Martin, and Memes: Carl Anthony Payne Says He's All for a 'Martin' Reboot, Thinks It's Long Overdue @balleralert Carl Anthony Payne Says He’s All for a ‘Martin’ Reboot, Thinks It’s Long Overdue - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, it may be safe to say that the possibility of a ‘Martin’ reboot is headed in the right direction… and everyone seems to be on board with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with CarlAnthonyPayne—who portrayed the role of ‘Cole Brown’ in the original series, and when asked about the promising project, he actually gave some hopeful responses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “People are talking. We’re all talking,” he said, hesitantly, walking out of Mastro’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it did appear that Payne didn’t want to give “too much” information away, he didn’t exactly say “no” either. In fact, he said that he wouldn’t be opposed to the idea of bringing ‘Martin’ back at all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Absolutely. Why not? I think the people want it. I think it’s long overdue. We created magic in a bottle. You know? Why not do it again?” The 48-year-old told TMZ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, many have wondered if the reboot would be available through a particular streaming service or a television network. According to Payne, he’s rooting for Netflix. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You know what? I think [Netflix] would be a good home for it. There’s a lot of room to grow there. It would be smarter, better, and funnier.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of now, the specifics are unknown. But, hopefully, we’ll know more soon-if it really happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rumors of a ‘Martin’ reboot have been swirling for quite some time now, but they recently resurfaced when MartinLawrence’s fiancée, Roberta Moradfar, let the cat out of the bag that Lawrence spilled the beans to her about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That following week, Lawrence was photoed out with co-stars Tisha Campbell-Martin and Tichina Arnold, which sparked more speculation.

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!

Arguing, Family, and Friends: Rap Pioneer Who Popularized Term 'Hip Hop,' Lovebug Starski Dies At 57 @balleralert Rap Pioneer Lovebug Starski, Who Popularized The Term ‘Hip Hop,’ Dies At 57 - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kevin Smith, a DJ from the Bronx, and better known as LovebugStarski who coined the term “hip-hop,” unfortunately passed yesterday at age 57. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RollingStone reports his death was caused by a heart attack he had in Las Vegas, where he recently relocated. Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore. Rolling Stone says they all helped shape hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DJ Grandmaster Flash told rolling stone what made Starski so different from the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What set him apart was he was able to DJ and talk on the mic and do both at the same time, and he was really really good at this," explained Flash. “He played an extremely important role in the development of this. We all do it now, talk on the mic and DJ same time, but in the hip-hop world, Starski was probably the first to handle it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may argue that Keith “Cowboy” Wiggins of Grandmaster Flash and the FuriousFive introduced the word “hip-hop,” but Smith accepted credit for the term in an interview with Amoeba Music in 2017. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "That was one of my rhymes when I would get stuck for words and I used to go 'hip, hop, the hip, the hip, hip the hopping," he said. "You know it was just a nursery rhyme that coincided with the music, and that's the God's honest truth." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condolences are sent to Smith’s family and friends. Salute to all “hip-hop” icons everywhere.

Charlie, Community, and Lawyer: Jackpot Lottery Winner of $559 Million Files To Keep Her ldentity Anonymous, Despite State Law @balleralert PONER Jackpot Lottery Winner of $559 Million Files To Keep Her Identity Anonymous, Despite State Law- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you won $559 million, you probably wouldn’t want anyone to know. Well, that’s what the newest Powerball winner is suing to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, the winner of the Powerball jackpot filed a complaint looking to keep her identity anonymous regardless of the state law that requires every winner to have their names in public records. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to New Hampshire’s public records, winners must release their name, the area they live in and the amount they won. However, according to a lawyer the woman reached out to, she may be able to receive the prize as a trust, which would allow her to get out of having to expose her information. The only issue with that is she’s already signed the back of the ticket which prohibits her from claiming the lottery money as a trust. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The woman who is a community leader in New Hampshire would like to stay where she currently lives but feels she won’t be able to if people find out she has so much money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "While we respect this player's desire to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols," New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director Charlie McIntyre said in a statement. This is the eighth largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
