Wishing everyone an amazing, happy and prosperous new year!! All the stress of the past, LET IT GO! All the haters, fake friends and disloyal people, LET THEM GO!! All the procrastinating, having no actions to back up all your talk, SHUT UP AND LET IT GO!!
This year is for the doers! This year is for those who want more out of their lives! This year is for the go getters! Is this year for you?
As my boy Wolf J would say, "people need to live their lives"!! <3
I'm focused on what I need to get done. No more slacking from this point on from me, that's my WORD!
My website will be up on poppin', my tees will be done up and FRESH and my dreams will be manifested! Oh yes, I am going hard for mine! To anyone who's been wondering why I haven't done anymore YouTube videos, I've got something up my sleeve and Im coming correct! I'm so ready to get my life back in order and take my dreams to the next level.
I've always wanted to know: Since when does being half/fully naked = being a fashionista/fashion icon? Granted, her stylist Mariel Haenn has an AMAZING eye for what's hot but, do I have to see all of Rihanna's business in the process?? Faaaaak!!!
Oh and another thing, what's with all the crotch grabbing? Is that suppose to mean you're "hard" Rihanna? I haaaaaatttteeee seeing guys do that sh*t and you don't make it look sexy, sorry! Everything you do now is just... it's just too much!
Rihanna Feat. Yung Jeezy - Hard
Ms. MusiQ: As my cousin would say, "I dunno how to feel...."
PS. This song, that's suppose to be a stab at her ex, was the new joint of the day on 106 & Park.... Chris Brown was the guest in the studio as well. *side eye @ BET*
Conspiracy? I dunno but come one people, stop trying to re-fuel the drama!
My mind ran on my boys Day26 today.... What happend to you guys? You're not all up in my face like you use to be and that makes me S-A-D!! Guess you've been pushed to the back burner already... LEAVE BAD BOY NOW!!!!
Anywho, I went on YouTube to watch their video for 'Girlfriend' and found 3 videos I've never seen before... SWEEEEEEET!
Day 26 - Perfectly Blind
.... I'm sooooooooooooooo in love with Que (& his voice)! Mike's voice gives me goosebumps too :D
Day 26 - Then There's You
.... Interesting concept and nice song. *Psssst, Que... you're HOT!*
Day 26 - Just Getting Started
.... The song makes me nervous (because it's SO BAD) but I'm not surprised the video is shitty (side eye at the BadBoy team :@)
I know I know, I've been post-less for a minute.... I went on a much needed vacay with my family to the Dominican Republic for my aunt's wedding (thx mom :D). It was AMAZING!! I'll be uploading pictures soon but right now, I'm hella tired.
Ok so, I wasn't watching the time and missed the first 15 mins of the show! Now, that wouldn't be so bad if it was the BET Awards but they never rerun the AMAs and I MISSED JANET!! Efffffff! Man, thank goodness for YouTube and WSHH!
Performances: -I tuned into the AMAs in time to see Shakira's sh*tty step routine performance thing. Moving along... -Kelly Clarkson performed her record breaking hit, 'Already Gone' and while her performance definately lacked some much needed energy, you can't deny her natural talent. Nice vocals Kelly (but please fire your hair and wardrobe stylists ASAP)! -I didn't love Carrie Underwood's performance or the song but she just has that thing.... Is it her strong vocals? Her personality? I dunno what it is but I like the girl. -Jay Z and Alicia Keys had everybody on the feet and sing along to 'New York'. Yeah, the song is MAD catchy, I can admit that and I love the piano intro that Alicia did. I also gotta admit that I would've appreciated it if the Jay stuck to his "All Black Everything" cause that suit choice sucked. -Rihanna's performance was sooooo SH*T!!POINT BLANK PERIOD. She really needs to stop getting so naked all the damn time, on some real sh*t. -Lady Gaga, always the original, performed "Bad Romance/Speechless' and broke some glass... Dangerous but HOT! LOL. -I forgot how good Mary J. Blige sounds live and I liked her performance.... Plus, she looked really good! -Jennifer Lopez tried a ting with her new song 'Louboutins'.... *Go ahead and laugh. I know I did!* She hasn't performed in nineteen-eleven years and thought it was appropriate come out on stage as a boxing champ and sing THAT song............ WHO TOLD YOU?! PS, I won't laugh about your fall but I will say that your solo dance sequence didn't have the same flare as it use to. Time to regroup mama, I'm just saying! -*sigh* Alicia Keys.... I really hate it when you try so hard. Stick to swaying your hips and sitting at your piano mama! That little dance session you had with your backup dancer was very ackward & NOT cute! I'm starting to like that, 'Sleeping With a Broken Heart' song but your pitchy vocals will be the death of me. -BEP should stick to upbeat songs/performances and be easy with those space suits! -Eminem and 50 seemed maaaadddd out of place to me..... and who told Eminem to do 'Forever' without Drake? -I didn't expect Timberland to perform tonight so that was a surprise. The permance gets a 6/10 and all because he brought out Nelly Furtado! -Green Day is hella consistent... Nuff said! -*side eye* @ this Adam Lambert dude. I'm so off beat right now. I don't know how to feel.....
*Ok so I was able to catch the Janet performance on WSHH. She may look about 30 but she really is dancing with the energy of a 45 yr old these days :(. I liked the music throwbacks but I HATED her outfit. Can someone tell me why she continues to wear these baggy suits with the tight belts around the waist of the jacket?? Anyways, I appreciated her saving 'Together Again' for last... I know that was for MJ <3
Shakira look hot in this yellow number. Wrong choice of pumps though.
Leona Lewis, who is your stylist and why are you still paying her? Booties can gwan but, that's about it!
Shante looked good. Didn't like the hair or shoes but that jumper is hot!
This look is a no for me Jenny.
... Just why? Rihanna is taking is "egdy" persona too far.
Looking good ladies!
This one is A LITTLE BIT better than the white outfit.
A good look for our boy Drizzy....
Hey Ne-Yo, nice blazer. Not loving that button up though...
Nice dress Paula, just a little too dressy for the AMAs... In my opinion.
Nice dress Mary... Would've loved the hair if it was darker and not so patchy.
Melody from the Pussycat Dolls came through, looking FRESH!
uGh @ the Black Eye Peas.... *side eye*
Loved Keri Hilson's ensemble but my homie @datchickneeks was right, her make up was TERRIBLE!
I would have paired this outfit with different shoes but Alicia Keys looks amazing!
I'm on the fence with this one. I has potential but it needs a lot of tweeking. Rihanna, I think it's about time you change your hair colour.... It sucks.

Jay-Z & Alicia Keys Performance At The American Music Awards [Just can't help but sing along]
Rihanna's Performance At The American Music Awards [.... No thx]

Kelly Clarkson - AMA 2009 Performance [Strong vocals]
Black Eyed Peas Perform Live at the 2009 American Music Awards Live [Will.I.Am, what's you problem?? LOL]
*side note, everyone PLEASE take in the foolishness Will.I.Am put on his head! My homie @datchickneeks had me rolling last night with this comment: "Will.I.Am's lacefront will be in a Keele/Sheppard hairstore soon. Don't fret dancehall queens"*
Ms. MusiQ: What was your favorite performance of the 2009 AMAs??
You know what's really sad? The most vocally talented artists out here today are being pushed under the rug to make room for these generic artists who couldn't hold a proper note or kill their verbato to save their lives! Case in point, the always ear-pleasing Brandy. As smooth and as light as her voice has always been, it's also well seasoned and extremely CLEAN!!
Brandy + bathroom acoustics = an amazing acapella performance!
Brandy Singing "A Change Is Gonna Come" In Her Bathroom!
You know what Alicia Keys, you're just doing waaaaayyy to much over there... trying to sound different and trying to come across as 'edgy'! This video/song is a definate strike two for me. Nope, not feeling it AT ALL! & that purple one-shoulder suit is HORRIBLE!!
Ms. MusiQ is wondering why everyone's tryna be brand new....?
Ok so, aside from the whole assault situation, both Chris Brown and Rihanna are (back) on the media circuit promoting their new albums. Rihanna's "Rated R" drops November 23 and Chris' drops "Graffiti" on December 8th. Which one are you guys buying?? I'll be real, IF I was to buy one, it would be Chris'. I was ALWAYS a huge fan of his.
& ok look, they both dropped new videos today... *side eye*
Chris Brown - Crawl [cameo by Cassie]
I can't lie... I like this one a lot!
Rihanna - Russian Roulette
I completely hated this song before but, accompanied by the video, it's actually not half bad.... Dude in this vid (new doctor on Grey's Anatomy) is HOT!!
... I no longer care about Rihanna and Chris Brown. I had a whole script in my head that I was gonna type out, but then I thought.... Don't I have better things to do? SMH!
I will say this though, just like no man should put their hand on a woman, no woman should think she can hit a man and get off scott free! Keep your hands to your damnselves and no one gets hurt!! Also, if you're gonna go on TV and talk your business, at least have the manners to keep it 100!!
Gucci Mane Feat. Usher - Spotlight (cameo by Eddie Murphy's daughter... She's soooooooooooo pretty!)
What?!?!?!? Gucci mane is complaining to Usher about losing his girl? Ummmm, did anybody else throw up in their mouths or was that just me?? Ms. MusiQ: Donnie, I hope you have the SENSE to get out of Badboy QUICK!!
Ice-T's wife Coco.... Barely-there outfits are like her uniform.
LOL! TT looks awesome as Shaneneh (from the classic TV show 'Martin')... Her homeboys on the other hand... YIKES!
Lance really looks like he's coming straight out of Compton... But what the frig is Eva's costume suppose to be?
Ang... Always a cutie, seen here as Minnie Mouse ("No no no, no me guesta mouse!" HAHAA!). Her producer boyfriend is dressed as Sean Paul. The resemblance is SCARY!
Ok so.... Monica & her family are NOT dressed for Halloween. This is actually a pic from her sons' bday celebration.... I decided to put this pic up because of Rocko's face. He's ALWAYS skinning up his face in EVERY picture!! It's pretty much a mask..... Ha!
It's been a while since I've actually done a 'what's on my mind' post. Lately, I've had the urge to write and say so much but nothing is coming out. *Sigh.... Life!*
I am currently unfulfilled in my life and as the year draws to an end, I'm also feeling kind of helpless. It's almost as if, my will to continue jumping over these hurdles is still there but my body isn't co-operating :(. There are so many things that I want to do but something is in my way. I'm the first person to tell anyone who's in this position to drop everything that's in their way and do what they love at all cost but for some odd reason, I can't do it for myself...... So, does that make ME the problem?
Maybe if I get back to my meditating and stop thinking about all the negative situations in my life, things will turn around. Maybe it's time to finally change the way I think.... Yep, I think that's what I need. A change of mentality.
I finally saw the MJ movie with my girls Iv & Raj last night.... & IT WAS LIVE!! I mean, I took it for what it was, which was just backstage rehearsal footage but it was dope!! I'll admit that he definately looked different (NOT terminally ill like some have reported), but the essence of that man, the absolute GENIUS was literally pouring out of the screen! Ahhh... I'm soooooo surprised I didn't cry!
I really wish I could've witness the magic in person!
R.I.P. MJ... Truly irreplaceable! <3<3<3
Ms. MusiQ:The director/producer dude was sooooooooooooo annoying!! As Raj would say, "He's such a PANTY!!"
