Taylor Swift donates $1 million to Louisiana flood Relief

Even in the middle of the Kim and Kanya West scandal (click her for more details) Taylor Swift is still being her all-American girl self and donated a crisp 1 million dollars to aid in the current Louisiana flood relief efforts. According to CNN, the PA native stated that

“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home….. “The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.”

Taylor Swift is known for her philanthropy and a huge heart, but part of me is wondering….did this come from a place of love? Or is this a strategical move on behalf of Taylor Swift and her PR team? Personally, I would like to believe that it is the former because I still rock hard my girl T-Swift, but there is till a little voice in my head going “OOOh Girl. I see what you did there”

Thanks to T-Swift’s swift actions, other celebrities such a Lady GaGa and Louisiana native Ian Somerhalder have also sent their love and support publically to the water-logged state.

Though the amounts donated by these two celebrities are yet unknown, it is great to see that Americans are coming together in order to aid their fellow citizens. Especially since The American Red Cross has stated that this devastating flood is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago.

To everyone in Louisiana….stay safe

Beyoncé: Lemonade (Is She Sour Or Is She Sweet?)

On April 23, 2016, in true Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter form, our Queen B dropped another visual album entitled “Lemonade” virtually out of nowhere. Yes, we have been waiting for a release date since Beyoncé’s “controversial” Superbowl performance where she debuted the first single off of her Lemonade album entitled “Formation”. The day before the Superbowl performance, Beyoncé also released a music video for the single as well. In this music video, Beyoncé addressed many social issues plaguing the United States and where she stood on these matters. Many people felt like the Superbowl was neither the time nor the place to perform such a politically driven song….My question to them is, why not?

screen-shot-2016-02-06-at-1-39-02-pmArtists throughout history have always been the ones to call change to action, regardless of the medium they chose to use in order to get a point across. So why should Beyoncé be any different? If Donald Trump can use his celebrity platform to run for President of the United States, why can’t Beyoncé use her music to speak about her experience here in the US as a woman of color? Honestly, there is not answer…..So let B be free to express herself in HER art.

Besides the political aspect of this visual album, Beyoncé opens up about her relationship with he husband   Jay-Z, and BOY did she have a lot to say! over the last few years, rumors about the couples splitting and Jay-Z’s infidelities have been circulating. Flashback to 2014, when Beyoncé’s sister Solange assaulted Jay in an elevator at the Met Gala. Gossip magazines at the time suspected that Solange found Jay-Z flirting and getting a little too close to a fellow Gala goer and decided to do something about it (Via a few quick hard blows to the head. Remind me not to mess with her sister!)

On Beyonce’s first self-entitled visual album, Beyoncé touched upon some of the rocky roads she and Jay had faced. Little did we know that this sneak-peek into the couple marriage was just the tip of the iceberg. On the Lemonade album, each song seemed to be different aspects of her 12 step self-healing process. Each song paints a picture of what Beyoncé was thinking as she began to take a cold hard look at her relationship with her beloved husband. Many of the lyrics left us all side-eyeing Jay-z and questioning our loyalty to the rap mogul.

Don’t take it from me, check out Lemonade on Tidal today and decide for yourself.
Would you put up tumblr_o67yte8iKe1r51by8o1_500.jpgwith Jay-Z’s BS or would you take your smexy self and more on to greener pastures?

 

So much is happening

So over the last few weeks I have been traveling around the east coast of the United Stated attending conferences for my new job as well as a hosting event this new position. GIRL! LET ME TELL YOU!

I’m tired…like dead tired. I came back to my apartment in Boston on Thursday and CRASHED!

I did wake up to spend time with my puppy aka my boyfriend before I make thins big move to Pennsylvania because I have no clue when the next

Though we may be apart for a while, I still love this guy to death. See you in a few months pup and know that when things get rough I'll be there holding your hand

time I will see him, which makes me very sad, but I know that this is something that will benefit me and my career in the long run. So I’m going to chase my dreams and put my heart and soul into this career change.

I just want Ben (My boyfriend) to know that I love him and that I am doing this for us. I can’t wait to be able to support us both, not only financially, but in every aspect of the word. Over the past year, I have learned so much about myself as a person. I’m excited to keep this growth going and to pass it along to others that I meet in my travels….so get ready for a wild ride baby!

So switching gears, I have exactly four days to pack up everything I own and move to PA….wish me luck! I’M GOING TO NEED IT!

Don’t Wait!

in-real-lifeI’ve been following a popular Youtuber by the name of Joey Graceffa for a few years now and recently he did something I believe is pretty amazing.

Rumors of Graceffa’s sexuality have been running ramped ever since he started his YouTube channel, but this weekend in conjunction with releasing his book entitled “In real life”. Garceffa addressed all of these rumors as well as sharing his life’s story in a music video.

Graceffa often openly speaks about living with a mother who was suffering from alcoholism and how he was bullied as a child, but he’s always shied away from publically addressing his sexuality.  Being such a huge YouTube star and having such a large following, it could be very detrimental to Graceffa’s career if he were to come out a Gay, but this didn’t stop our favorite content creator.

Take a look at what I mean:

I just want to commend Joey for being brave enough to share this art of his life with the world and I wish him all the best in the weeks to come. I know some people will have some negative thigs to say, but I just want Joey to know that he is loved and that his fans will support him no matter what. Shootady shoot shoot! We love you Joey!

Until next time! Take chances! Make mistakes and get messy everyone!!
