Yes, I know… After the debacle that is Dwyane Wade having a baby while on a “break” from Gabrielle Union, she is the last person I thought could give relationship advice. However, in her latest interview with Glamour magazine, I’m surprised by how much sense she makes. This is a classic case of do as I say, not as I do. The star of BET’s original scripted TV series Being Mary Jane, shares her big relationship DOs and DONTs:
DO forget your “type.” It worked for me. When I met Dwyane, his “résumé” looked like crap: athlete, going through a divorce, nine years younger than me. None of that screamed, “Let’s have a lasting relationship.” Then, after I had a heart-crushing breakup with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can’t be any worse if I date a fetus. Let’s just see what happens. Turned out he’d been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity. He’s sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool.
DON’T put up with a friend-versus-boyfriend tug-of-war. Some friends act possessive and say, “You’re not spending enough time with me.” Huh? Remember when we made our vision boards and the dude was in the middle? You’re supposed to be happy for me. Thankfully, my girls are like, “High-five!” And D likes to be around them too. If there’s weirdness, either something’s wrong with the friends—or the boy. Investigate. And sift accordingly. (more…)
Nicki Minaj is on the cover of Black Book Magazine. I love Nicki because she makes you look. Not in freakazoid Gaga way. She’s just interesting and something fresh in the hip hop scene. Yeah I know some people think she bit off from Lil’ Kim. The only similarity I see is the different coloured wigs. Lyrically and stylistically they are so different. A plus for her is that my boo loves her…and he is strictly old school so she must be doing something right. Check out an excerpt from the interview where she discusses many topics including her twitter frenemies, the Lady Gaga Comparisons and Diddy rumors. I didn’t even know there were Diddy rumours eeeewwww. There are also pics from the shoot which are as colourful as only Nicki can do it.

When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was. What the fuck are you doing?’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy to you today. (more…)
It seems I’m giving you guys quite a bit of nudity lately :-) Naomi Campbell once said “I don’t read the papers…I sell papers.” She’s featured on the cover of the first 2011 issue of British GQ nude, floating in a pool. The last of the supermodels, famous for her cell phone hurling tantrums, is looking absolutely gorgeous in a short hair cut
which we all know is a wig. I don’t care what anyone says, she is still as stunning as ever. The issue will be on news stands on February 3rd and in it, Naomi Campbell talks blood diamonds, life lessons and why she’s not as scary as you might imagine.
Naomi also takes a crack at being a reporter and interviews Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin for the magazine.
Naomi Campbell: You’re in pretty good physical shape. How do you manage to keep yourself so fit?
Vladimir Putin: Probably the same way you do. (more…)
I was doing something today (can’t tell you what) that reminded me about this interview that Andre did with Playboy. Let’s just say it makes you feel like you know him intimately… No wonder Erykah Badu was so strung out…
What music do you listen to during sex?
I listen to jazz — Coltrane, the Isley Brothers, Anita Baker. We call them “fuck tapes.” A f*ck tape is a compilation tape that you’ve made yourself with all your favorite songs. You usually start it off with a nice little groove, you know, and by the end of the tape it’s just real slow. It’s kind of like the soundtrack to that night.
What’s your favorite sexual act?
Kissing. All over the body.
What’s your favorite part of the female anatomy?
The nipples. I like puffy nipples. Long, hard nipples that look like thumbs sticking out.
What’s the most memorable sexual experience you’ve ever had?
One time I had sex at a baseball field. It wasn’t really the sex; it was the environment. We were just riding around. It was a rainy night, and we went into this scorebox where the announcers sit and call the game. “Bases loaded. And his hand goes here…!”
Have you ever had sex with a groupie or a fan?
Yes, of course. I didn’t have sex with this one girl, but the way she approached me was kind of funny. We had just walked into this stadium, and she comes up. She didn’t say, “Hey,” or “Hi,” or “My name is so-and-so.” She just said, “Can I have sex with you tonight?” (more…)
