This is what actress Joy Bryant blogged on Essence.com about her love for weave:
"As the threads of the grown-out tracks were being snipped, I broke out my laptop and began my ritualistic daily web search. I go from news of the day to articles/blogs about the news of the day, ending up on entertainment/gossip/fashion stuff.But that day, something caught my attention and trumped all of the glowing reviews of President Obama’s health care speech:
It was Tyra’s hair.
National Real Hair Day? I missed that one…In fact, on National Real Hair Day, I was calling Extensions Plus in L.A. to make sure they had enough of the 20” “relaxed roots” texture hair that I love oh so much (and that keeps selling out like crazy!), and making an appointment to get my hair, I mean, my weave, hooked up.
So Tyra, while I didn’t take part in your observance, I just want to say: “WOW!” You are such a brave woman for breaking the chains that bound you since your teenage years! What courage that took, for you to expose yourself to millions of people! Such fearlessness!
Oh, how I wish I had the guts to do that. I guess I’m much too much of an insecure, self-loathing Negro for all that self-acceptance foolishness.I’m glad we got down to solving the mystery of what’s under your lace-front, though. I mean seriously, it was “THE” question that has perplexed the world over. And now we see that there’s a beautiful head of hair underneath it all, hair that was surprisingly relaxed and ready for the world. Whodathunkit?! If I had the same length and fullness of hair that you have, I might take my weave out too.
Ha!!!! I’m just playing! Even if I DID have your “real” hair, I’d still be wearing a few tracks or clip-ons up in there.
Because I’m straight weave fo life, kid!!!
Ima ride ride wit this weave, die die with this weave!!
Let me break it down for you:See, I loooooove taking new hair out of the bag, combing through it with my fingers, holding it up with my two hands, and burying my face in it. Mmmm, mmmm, mmm! Nothing like a new batch of zig-zag curly to get your self esteem out of the dumps!
The feeling of getting my hair, I mean, my weave done over. I feel human again. I feel sexy. I feel powerful. It makes me feel…it makes me feel…it makes feel like a natural woman!!!
I can be whatever, whoever I want to be with the stroke of a sewing needle…
With long brown tresses and a tan, I’m Pocahontas, ’cause I got Indian in my family. With easy waves, I AM bohemian rhapsody goddess personified. And now that I got blond highlights! What!? I know I look like Beyonce! You can’t tell me nothing! Uh oh, uh oh…
And then I looked up from my computer, and caught a glimpse in the mirror of my head minus the long weavy locks. I looked crazy! Awww hell naw! I looked over at the new batch of hair sitting off to the side waiting to join forces with me. Damnit, I’m trapped, I thought to myself. I can’t let it go. I am powerless over it. Just when I think I’m done, it pulls me back in!
Now I guess I can get help for my self-loathing addiction.I can learn to accept myself in my entirety. I can emancipate myself from that which keeps me locked-up. I can embrace the natural state of things.
Yup, I can do all of that…
But don’t hold your breath!
Hi, my name is Joy, and I’m a weave-a-holic."
Ms. MusiQ: I don't care if it's natural or weaved up..... JUST TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR!!

I LOVED Lady Gaga's performance and her outrageous wardrobe changes, I loved the song Pink sung (didn't care about that circus performance), I thought Beyonce and Jay Z's performance were... MEH (where did Lil' Mama come from? LOL!) and Wale did his thing with the outros to commercial. Other than that, I couldn't get into it :(
..... The only fashion pics worth mentioning!

Kanye West is the biggest jerk ever... Scratch that! THE LAMEST DUDE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT WORLD!
Update - 1:39pm
I put up the video clip of Kanye 5 year old behavior but of course Viacom deleted it from YouTube.... I tried to go on his blog to leave a comment under his "apology" to Taylor Swift but he took it down this morning... Here's what I was gonna send him anyways:
"On a night that was suppose to be dedicated to Michael Jackson, the most AMAZING entertainer to ever walk the earth, you just couldn't contain the JACKASS in you... For one night, you just couldn't surpress your natural ASSHOLE nature could you? Kanye, you are by far the most disrespectful person alive and I REFUSE to continue supporting your bullshit! I thought it was an absolute DISGRACE when you pulled that crap a few years ago at the EMAs after you didn't win the Video of the Year award (I believe it was that award show) but this year, you stooped to an all new low. For someone who doesn't even qualify for the FEMALE Video of the Year award, what made you think it was appropriate to embarass Taylor Swift and Beyonce like that?? The poor girl just finished saying how shocked and happy she was to win that award and you had the AUDACITY to take that shine away from her? Just because you felt someone else was more deserving? Who the hell died and made you God??!
It doesn't matter who you or anyone else THOUGHT should have won, that fact of the matter is, Taylor Swift got it! Give respect where it's due! There was absolutely nothing "real" about you interrupting her acceptance speech and announcing who you thought the award belonged to. You had absolutely NO RIGHT to grab the mic away from that girl and ruin a moment she didn't even believe would happend to her! For someone who directed the year's WORST video (Best I Ever Had), you have nothing to say about what was the best video! I'm from Toronto, Drake's hometown and I can't even believe he let you ruin his song like that! You should've stayed your ass in your seat and locked your damn jaw!!
You have no shame. YOU HAVE NO CLASS! You walk around with a screwface, some dark shades and your GI JANE "arm candy" and think you're automatically suppose to be respected when in fact, you don't deserved any of the adoration your heavily misguided fans give you. You should keep your "real" opinions to your damn self and stop force feeding your "realness" to people who don't give two shits what your opinion is!! I may only be one person out of billions, but this one person thinks you're PATHETIC and will no longer support you!! Your sorry excuse for an apology doesn't erase the fact that you're the LAMEST DUDE in the world. My 7 year old godson has more manners than you..... GROW UP!!"
... That's all!
