In Defense of <i>Being Mary Jane</i> and Flawed Fictional Black Women
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When I first heard BET had a new show about a 30-something professional black woman struggling to keep her personal life intact, I'll admit I was underwhelmed. Another emotionally suppressed black woman barely staying afloat as she juggles work, family, friends and love. Yay. But after watching the two-hour movie special and Tuesday's premiere episode of Being Mary Jane, I, like many of you, am hooked. The racy BET drama, made for us and by us, tells the story of Mary Jane Paul, a successful, single news anchor with a sick shoe game and a penchant for no-good men. Oh, and she has a lot of sex. While the majority of the country, #BlackTwitter in particular, gave the show two thumbs up, not everyone is loving MJ. In what's become standard protocol with hyped black primetime shows (the handful that exist), the show's come under scrutiny for what some critics are calling an inadequate depiction of powerful black women. In a recent Black Enterprise article, writer Janell Hazlewood argu...

1970s Hair Icons That Will Make You Nostalgic
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Beyond the bell-bottoms and platform shoes in films and books, the 1970s was truly a transformative decade. Subcultures that spawned a generation of hipsters, rockers and radicals brought forth an eclectic mix of styles that we believe are best told through hair. From Farrah Fawcett's feathered cut to Debbie Harry's bleach-blonde bob to Pam Grier's Afro, these '70s hairdos echo the attitudes fueled by outspoken youth. To truly understand this great shift in society and politics, we've compiled a list of 16 hair icons whose strands tell a beautiful story. Farrah Fawcett The late "Charlie Angels" actress' flipped hairstyle remains one of the most sought-after looks, but somehow, many seem to fall flat of capturing Fawcett's big, bouncy mane. Pam Grier Grier's badass Afro commanded just as much attention and respect as the strong characters she played in blaxploitation films like "Foxy Brown" and "Coffy."

Peter 'Souleo' Wright: Homophobia in Hip-Hop
Huffington Post - over 4 years
When I was growing up, rap's raw sound drew me in, but its repugnant attitudes toward women and the LGBT community left me feeling torn. I love hop-hop but dislike what it has sometimes stood for. Famous rappers and their fans have called me ugly names with no fear of reprisal, and some of my favorite emcees have dropped lyrics that are downright hostile toward who I am: an openly gay, "Generation Y," African-American male. Still, I've never lost faith in hip-hop's power to inspire and uplift. As an activist curator I'm often drawn to the more conscious aspects of hip-hop culture as source material. "Motown to Def Jam," which ended its month-long run in Harlem last week, is my most recent exhibition linking the art world to the world of music. It pays visual homage to the humanist output from four legendary record labels, including Def Jam, an easy target for homophobic assumptions. Over the past three decades, hip-hop has become an important element in every American...

Nicki Minaj Brings Along Lil Wayne, Drake, Foxy Brown For NYC Show

If you ever doubted it, now you know that Nicki Minaj is good on her word. That controversial canceled Summer Jam performance wasn't a bleep on her radar last night when she brought her family out to party with her in New York. The Young Money rapper took the stage at Roseland Ballroom on Tuesday night (August 13) for a set that ran well over 2 hours, and just when it seemed like she might be rocking solo, she brought out a few guests, beginning with Foxy Brown, then adding her Young Money family Drake and Lil Wayne. Minaj hit the stage at 9:30 p.m. for the Pepsi-sponsored show (part of the brand's "Live for Now" campaign), which was live-streamed online and broadcast on the big screen in Times Square. Sporting a long blond wig and a skintight pink, blue and black-and-white striped leotard, she kicked things off with tracks like "Roman's Revenge" and "Did It on 'Em," flanked by her backup dancers in their colorful garb.

Black Book Covers Brianna Perry And Her Rise To The Top
24 Hip Hop - almost 6 years
It’s midnight and by any definition of the word we are deep in one of Miami’s hoods. Ain’t nothing glitzy about it. The sirens of police cars going by are frequent, and the fellows leaning over metal fences are sipping on something wrapped up in paper brown bags. Even the local dogs sniffing around seem to be hustling for anything that resembles a meal. But just around the corner on a lot heavily lit by industrial lighting, a collection of the finest automobiles are forming a semi-circle around a group of dancers, popping their hips with impressive force. They are all young and cute, dressed in sexified version of athletic wear, looking like hot cheerleaders ready to play ball. Out of this group of ladies emerges Brianna Perry, female rapper on the rise, who steps out and takes charge, spitting rhymes to her super catchy “Back Der.” Her appeal is undeniable. An army of handlers, makeup artists, and choreographers that make up her entourage are bopping heads to a track that can easil...

''She's Like the Only Female Doing It'' 4:30PM ET May 2nd, 2012 Contributor : Erica Moore A Rocky Williform Company Nicki Minaj has her fair share of haters, but rapper Nas isn't one of them. The two have collaborated before, and Nas says that the public should give Nicki credit for being the lone female rapper holding her own currently atop the charts with all of the men. "I mean it was crazy cause Nicki is out there doing it," Nas said in an interview. "She's like the only female doing it. You got some new ones out her doing it--Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea--you got them. But since we don't hear much from Eve, [Lil] Kim and Foxy [Brown] these days, nobody can't front, Nicki is representing. To be on her album, that sh*t was crazy. ... She put me on ['Champions'] with Drake and [Young] Jeezy -- that's a recipe of a masterpiece. I thought it was a perfect record and I think Nicki killed that sh*t."
