I Bet If I . . .

Early today, Chris Brown released yet another version of the ever-popular Marvin's Room. I personally was done with all the different covers after Teyana Taylor, but with lyrics like,

"I bet if I lick that spott then you wont act like thattttttt." && "I'm kissing you hard on all ya' lil body partsss" I instantly fell in love.

His version features vocals from Kevin McCall && RichGirl's Seven. Tell me what you think . .

Au Naturale.

Ladies, if you are anything like me then you know that your HAIR is a big deal! Constantly trying to be the latest and greatest calls for you looking good from head to toe. You have this bomb outfit, ready to take on the night but yet your hair can be so ANNOYING. It's as if it dictates your every life decision. Making sure every strand is in the right place, making sure it stays hydrated, or frying your ends/edges after desperately trying to keep it straight in the hot summer days? Many women are given the burden of having to perm their hair or do various other crazy tactics in efforts to make their hair tamed and manageable. Women all across America are taking that brave leap to going au naturale, just as Solange Knowles did but man did she receive the worst ridicule from doing so! In an interview with Oprah, Solange sternly but still respectfully scorned those on twitter who had made her a trending topic by tweeting numerous negative comments regarding her shaving her head during her going natural campaign. Solange tweeted “I became the number three trending topic before Iran and some of you can’t even locate it on the map… I wanted to be free from  the bondage that… women sometimes put on themselves with hair. In this phase of my life I want to spend the time, energy and the money on something else… not on hair.”

Below, are some pictures of women across America who have taken the challenge – will you? Read their story!

“I cut my hair off for many different reasons, but the most meaningful reason I cut my hair off for is  F R E E D O M. I permed my hair in eighth grade in order to assimilate to the white area I lived in. I permed it to be accepted into society… In this case society had me hanging by my hair… by cutting it off I was able to free myself from its grip.” – Sekaya Harris, CA
“I went natural because relaxers did nothing for my hair because my hair is naturally thin and would grow and then break off… I noticed my hair was thicker and stonger in its natural state so I decided NO MORE CHEMICALS! … I don’t have to waste money at hair salons every two weeks like I used to… I am HAPPY TO BE NAPPY!” Ashleigh Owens, OH
“I decided to go natural because I was tired of the monthly routine of getting a perm, having natural hair allows me to experiment with my hair without having to worry about damaging it. I also just wanted to see what my hair type was REALLY LIKE. I love my natural hair because it fits me so well!” Tatiana Pile, VA

&& Mr. DJ Screw We gone do this for You ;]

In recent years you have seen artists like Drake talk about 'double cup love' & Wayne say tht his drink is Easter Pink. But down in Houston, Texas we know where screw & 'moving slow all started. if my readers did not know, yes I am from H.Tineee as we say it && today, June 27th, is a very important day in my city's history. 

If you did not know, June 27th is one of the greatest freestyles to ever be recorded. In we use this day to recognize the originator of Screw music, Mr. DJ Screw && others such as Big Moe, && the entire Screwed Up Click.

Say whatever you want but all the rappers who sip drank got that from HOUSTON. Drake's infamous November 18th freestyle? Based upon June 27th. Take this day to pour up && move slow ;] Because all day && all night in Houston we will be swangin & bangin <3

These are only parts 1 & 2 listen to parts 3 & 4 for the whole freestyle.

*Jocoby Joy- We celebrate June 27th to keep screw alive. Our movement will never die. Happy June 27th babiesss<3

Fresh Off The Runway

Its a beautiful Monday morning, && today we introduce Alex Hooks as our Fresh Off the Runway contender. Alex is a, "rising sophomore Marketing major at Howard University from Richmond Va by way of Brooklyn New york ". I see you HU ;;]

Here is what he has to say about his style, "
As far as my style is concerned, its definitely GQ inspired. I'm big on wearing ties and cardigans, suits and blazers and lace ups. I think my style is functional and laid back. When I'm not playing on patterns with a shirt and tie combo you'll catch me in a polo and cardigan with drivers or casual sneakers."

"My trademark though would have to be my socks. Even though you cant see them in any of the pictures I submitted, I'm a big fan of eccentric socks. Argyle, stripes, patterns, I wear em all. I stick with Polo, J.Crew and Banana Republic and I've been dabbling in the thrift stores a little up in DC. I'm aware of name brands but not restricted by them.  I wear what I feel comfortable and what i think looks good. so I'm always comfortable in what I'm wearing."

His style definitely reminds me of Classic, All American style. && it doesn't that hurt that he attends the prestigious Howard University. ;;] Gotta show love to my school. He receives a head nod from Vogue D, but you know we want to know what y'all think. VOGUE or No?

&& b.t.w. the men have been taking OVER Fresh Off The Runway. Where are our LADIES? *gives side eye*

*Jocoby Joy- Your image is your BRAND. How is your look representing you today ?

Only Drake is allowed in Marvin's Room

When Drizzy dropped his instinct hit, "Marvin's Room," the entire world took heed. He describes a situation that the all people can relate too; thus, the track quickly became everyone's favorite. The message of Drake's song has become sooo powerful that it is influencing other artist to create their own version. At first, when JoJo released "Marvin's Room (Can't do Better)," it was like cool to see a woman's prospective. However, now that Sammie, Teyana Taylor and Romeo have decided to record their own remakes, I have decided that enough is enough. 

Am I the only person who feels like all remakes to Marvin's Room suck?

Below check out the remakes, and leave a comment stating if you think that only Drake should be allowed in Marvin's Rom!!

I Know you want them....

July 1st is the date, so be in line. The Nike Air Foamposite Pro: Electronic Blue are making a debut and if you claim that you have a mean shoe game this is definitely a must have. They are going for $200 but word on the street is that they never crease, so they are worth every penny! My advice to is to get to your nearest shoe retail store early due to the fact that these sneakers will make there exit quickly. Men the countdown to 7/1/11 start now & women if you bold enough go grab you a pair. See more pic of this must have shoe below, and tell me if they are VOGUE or NO!!

TheRow. Fall 2011

We will never forget their days as Michelle from Full House, but no one can deny that Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen are style ICONS. Their couture line, The Row has to be their best work yet. I mean straight dope shit . . .

Please peep this fur.

&& no stilettos? Only these two could make loafers look so chic.

*Cough Cough* Ladies & Gentlemen, you MIGHT just wanna step up winter wear game.

YO lil Grown ass BABY

The shoes seems harmless, however, I wonder about its subliminal message. Are these baby pumps insinuating that it is okay for young girls to prance around looking like women? How children are raise impacts their attitudes and if parents begin teaching their daughters to wear pumps when they're months old, is it safe to say that their childhood is over? 

Men would you let your daughter wear these shoes? 
Ladies would you buy these baby pumps for your baby? 
Are these shoes adorable or out of line? 
No or V O G U E?

Rolling in the deep or falling off a cliff?

I recently heard this cover by John Legend of the popular song "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele... but I want to know WHAT YOU THINK VOGUERS...?!
