So its only right that I tell #TeamVogueD what I peeped....Right? Check it out below.

Think BEFORE You Ink!

In today's age we all want to be tatted up but is it REALLY worth it? Think beyond this moment right now, at 50 will that tattoo really still have the same meaning to you that it does now? Although you can remove tattoos the process is not easy, nor is it cheap.

Leave Blue Ivy Alone!!!!

All over every social networking site you can think of people have been bashing an innocent child who isn't even a week old and auntie Solange is FED UP. People have been saying things such as the pregnancy was faked, Beyonce was never really pregnant and someone else had the child for her, comments about the name of the child were made, etc. Yesterday Solange (sister to Beyonce Knowles) took to Twitter to express her thoughts on the disrespect Beyonce, Jay Z and their child Blue Ivy is receiving. She tweets...

DID YOU KNOW: "Malik" Was A Rapper

This video was released months ago and is quite dated but surprisingly some people have not seen this comedy act. Hosea Chanchez, or more eminently known as Malik from BET's hit series The Game, is a RAPPER? Or at least it seems that he tried to be. We don't exactly know whether this rap video was out of comedy or what, but bottom line is the first thought that came to mind was: He needs Jesus. This definitely has to be tweeted as "#ThingsShorterThanKimKsMarriage Hosea's rap career." It was rumored that this was a "promo" video for Hosea's character "Malik" of The Game and we at Vogue | Diaspora sure do hope it was.
