Spotlight/ Shoutout: Kanye West


So here’s a name that has been tossed around a lot over the past few days/ week.
Okay, it is now known that Kanye West has some issues about running his mouth, and you’d think after winning 12 grammys he wouldn’t be the type for public outbursts. Either that or because Kanye has 12 grammys he thinks he owns the world.

Option two is more likely.

But all mouthing off aside, the honor of this week’s spotlight/ shoutout goes to Kay Dub because I feel like helpin’ a brutha out. Not.

In all seriousness, Kanye receives the s/s because I’m giving KW a shoutout for his role as an actor and work outside of the music biz. In 2008 he did an HBO special, which looks kind of blah, but it might be worth watching.

And now the real deal I want to see is his film from 2005, “State Property 2.”

This film just looks so bad-ass and gangsta I don’t think I can turn down the opportunity. Normally this isn’t my style, but this sort of “ghetto-fab” film might be promising. SP 2 also features the likes of fellow bad-asses N.O.R.E. and the most bad-assiest of bad-asses, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. (God rest his soul).

I’m interested to see it for many reasons, but mainly I'm just curious beacause I want to see something different from Kanye, especially after his name has been thrown around so much for being a mic-stealing douchey. The flick is set in Philly as three gangstas try to hold control over the streets of Brotherly Love.


It sounds like a dark, cold, gangsta film that might conclude with a lot of heart in the end. I’ll see if I can pick it up on video. And yes I know Kanye will most likely only be in the film for a short short short period of time, but I’m already set on seeing it.

QATFYG: Are you a fan of Gangsta films? Are you a fan of Wangsta films? And what would be the perfect acting role for Kanye W?

  2. Thnks C-Raw. I'm sure O.G. Mudbone's heart is yours as well. Hmm I just thought of it, I wonder if OG and Kay Dub are cousins. Could someone photoshop Kanye wearing a grill and yellow bandana real fast?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
