Prince--THE ARTIST, the ICON! Gone but not forgotten of course. His MUSIC LEGACY will live on FOREVER. He was INDEED the EPITOME of a MUSICAL GENIUS. You can ARGUE the point until you are PURPLE in the face, but he IS. It's hard to believe that Prince's 2-disc project, 'Sign O' The Times' has turned 30!!! Yes 30 years ago on March 31st to be EXACT, the MASTERPIECE was released. 1987 was a GREAT year. Now I did not WRITE this BRILLIANT piece on the ARTIST, but I am DAMN SURE glad I ran across it. Here EACH song from the collection is RANKED and some HISTORY about the process has been REVEALED!!!

W have an UPDATE on the situation in Atlanta. Earlier today a portion of I-85 collapsed causing ALL lanes to be BLOCKED and a fire had broken out creating MASSIVE clouds of black smoke to engulf the city!
The massive blaze that was burning underneath I-85 NB near Piedmont Road has shut down several roads in northeast Atlanta.
Like we didn't see this one coming. With all the MARITAL and gestational issues and drama Lisa Nicole Cloud and her husband had on the past seasons of 'Married To Medicine', it's no surprise that her and her hubby Dr. Darren are LEAVING the SHOW!!
I feel like going back --way back..back into time. Well maybe not that far back. The posts today will spotlight some of my favorite throwback jams. Back when the economy was good and music was even better
Remember when everywhere you looked, there was a 3 or 4 member GIRL GROUP Poppin off!? Well they hardly ever LASTED because if HISTORY serves us right, GIRLS CAN'T GET ALONG for LONG! No different was the TRIO of 3LW--they had a GOOD little SHORT run... but IN-fighting and COLORISM overshadowed their SUCCESS and of course they SPLIT! Word from the CURB is that they STILL don't SPEAK to each other... OH WELL.. Naturi Naughton went on to have HUGE success on 'Power' as 'Tasha'. And Adrienne Bailon is a co-host on 'The Real'..so they made it out ok. The other chick, the 'broken promithes' girl--her name ESCAPES ME...not so much..but at least she has the MEMORIES.. I think her name was Keily or something...GOOGLE HER... But let's go back with a few hits from the 'GIRLS WHO COULD MACK'!
This is funny so I had to say something. The BURGER WARS are heating up---pun intended. Didn't know this was still a THING, but with SOCIAL MEDIA set up the way it is.. it's easy to CLAP BACK--and that's what Wendy's did!
Earlier today, McDonald's made this GRAND ANNOUNCEMENT that by mid 2018 they would be using FRESH meat in the majority of all their restaurants for all their Quarter Pounder burgers.... READ CAREFULLY now, by 2018--over a year away, that 'most' of the restaurants would be using fresh beef...so all the other patties still won't be fresh and not all the restaruants will be using fresh beef? Is that what we are to believe? Well Wendy's had a little SHADE to throw on that announcement and it is TOO funny, but REAL!

Well it seems as if Attorney Phaedra Parks has the 'DIVORCE' that keeps on GIVING... Just recently a judge TOSSED OUT her divorce judgment.The judge stated in his ruling that he was troubled by various things in the judgment, particularly Phaedra "intentionally misspelling the parties names."
After obtaining the documents,TMZ, also stated that the judge was disturbed by the fact that Apollo was told he would be able to attend future divorce hearings from prison, which was apparently never an option to begin with. Apollo was also not made aware of the final hearing or even served with documents notifying him that their divorce was final. So, technically, he and Parks are still legally married. This leaves Parks scurrying to rethink her options to come to some form of resolution to this saga in her life! BUT wait...there is MORE..
