You GO Boy!

Okay... as I was doing my morning promotional routine for Vogue | Diaspora, I headed over to my little sister's Facebook page and stumbled upon a video... and it absolutely caught me by surprise and I said I MUST, I WILL, I SHALL share this with #TeamVogueD to see if they get the same reaction.

Flashback Fridays

During the all-nighter Ericka & I pulled last night [yep it's like that sometimes] , we were discussing artists we literally grew up on. Of course Dwayne Michael Carter was one of them. We been riding with him since the Hot Boyz. Even though I won't take y'all that far back, I bet this song will remind you of middle school days.

WHO was fadin Manny Fresh & Wayne ? 

Jocoby Joyy- I'm stayin' on my grizzy, I'm a bona-fide hustla' ;]

Two Days. Kanye Makes History.

The industry has been abuzz with rumors of Kanye West producing his own collection for awhile now. There was the whole Pastelle thing, then it was said that he would make his debut at NY Fashion Week, but it has finally been confirmed that our most stylish rapper will be debuting at Paris FW this Saturday, October 1st. The show is scheduled for 9:30 pm right after Jean Paul Gaultier & Loewe.

Shop All of your favorites brands at Motivation Boutique.

Speaking to my very best friend a couple of weeks ago [What up markus;], he expressed to me the lack of online options where today's man of style could shop. Pair his curiosity and need with a little internet searching, and he soon had a list of online retailers that I think our male readers will definitely identify with.

Bieber Fever

Lol what did I tell you all before? Justin Bieber is not playing! Now as we all know Tyler, the Creator has a liking to Justin Bieber... as well as his girlfriend Selena o_O... So this comes to no surprise... From what I heard this track is actually not real in the sense that Justin Bieber did not record this track WITH Tyler, but it indeed is Justin rapping. I kind of chuckled when I first heard it lol but what do YOU think of this? Should Bieber stfu or keep it coming?
       ( I hope Tyler, the Creator doesn't make Justin start wearing those black contacts -___-)

Hey, Hey, Hey... Goodbye...

As if news isn't always sad enough there is some more sad news... well sad news for most women between the ages of 25 and 70!

For 41 years All My Children had been providing love, drama, fashion, and entertainment specifically to women. I can remember when I was younger, as soon as my mom came home from a long day's work, the first thing she did was turn on those soap operas! She did it even before she started dinner! All My Children had over ten thousand episodes and not to mention the story lines that had EVERYONE on edge each show. I literally grew up in Pine Valley and honestly this is a little bit sad to even me, a person who lived off of soap operas through my mother. After the final episode which airs tonight, Vogue | Diaspora says a warm, heartfelt GOODBYE ALL MY CHILDREN!

Howard University Homecoming 2011: Grind to Prestige!

Well tonight I had the pleasure of being entertained by quite a few people tonight at the #HowardHomecomingUnveiling which was hosted by Jae Murphy with music by DJ Chubb E. Swag. I just need to make sure I start this off by saying close to ALL of the dancers that opened the show did amazing and of course Vogue | Diaspora's own Jocoby Joy killed her number to "Run the World: Girls."
All in all the unveiling was pretty interesting, Models Inc. brought out numerous jaw dropping models both adult and kids. Now I'm sure you all don't really care to read me telling you all about the show you just want to know the LINE-UP right?! LOL, I won't torture you anymore because I myself was indeed on the edge of my chair the whole time BEGGING to know the artist line-up ... Well without further ado...

House of Dereon takes on London.

"Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business"
Fashion Week is taking place all over the world, and Beyonce is using that to her advantage. Recently, Beyonce revealed that she is with child; however, I think that it is safe to say that she does not plan on slowing down. At London's Fashion Week, Beyonce and Mother Tina Knowles officially launched their House of Dereon line at Selfridges with a runway show. Check out exclusive pic from the show, and tell us what you think #TeamVogueD......VOGUE or NO?

Speak now... or forever hold your peace.

         Recently, one of my Voguers came to me and said that Vogue | Diaspora is becoming too formal and never has 'real' interactions with our viewers where you all can discuss or let loose on how you feel about a certain topic. I mean that is after all what a blog site is all about right? Now, whenever a Voguer comes to me with an issue I immediately think of ways to fix this issue because, of course here at Vogue | Diaspora we write to entertain/please our VOGUERS! So, I sat and thought... what can my Voguers talk about? & then I thought of a very CONTROVERSIAL issue that a lot of people can relate to and that I also know may get me in some trouble but hey you have to make sacrifices right!?

Anyhow.... Homosexuality and bisexuality.....

Someone Like You (cover)

Three days ago little Ms. Bobbi Kristina (daughter of Whitney Houston and the infamous Bobby Brown) released a video of her singing "Someone Like You" by Adele. For anyone to EVER try to do a cover of an ADELE song is a brave leap of faith. Anyhow of course, with every post I will refrain from giving my opinion on the subject. Which means that I will not tell you all how I felt about this uhh "interesting" cover ... LOL ... but instead, I will ask you what you think. Does Bobbi Kristina have a future in singing? VOGUE or NO?

Team OFF

This week's newest feature for New Music Mondays is Team OFF! Check out their remix to Lil Wayne's "How To Love."

**Remember** if you want Vogue | Diaspora to release more information on HOW you can contact this artist and if you would like to hear more music from this artist then you MUST vote. Write VOGUE in the comment box for yes or NO in the comment box if they're just not worth it.


Earlier in the week we revealed to you all a series of hints as to who our next "Tomorrow's Stars Today" feature would be. It was said that she is a dancer [and has danced/worked with and/or alongside numerous celebrities such as Fantasia, Ludacris, Souljah Boy and MANY MORE], and that she resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Now, before I release the name of this extremely beautiful, talented, young lady you must FIRST watch this amazing choreography by Atlanta's own SEAN BANKHEAD which features her and a line of other dancers. Maybe then you will get a feel for who this 'mystery' feature is!

     (We do not own rights to this video, photos nor the music. Choreography by Sean Bankhead.)
