I'm a writer for a major publication now. Ain't that bad ass?

The FlyWheel 5 Ride challenge: I already look better naked...and now my friends will, too!
I am currently working on a new album that I plan to release this summer. That means I have to get off of my hedonistic ass and exercise so that I can be in tip-top shape for shows, videos, and other half-naked summertime foolishness. Poor me. A few days ago  I wrote about FlyWheel, the... Read more »

Will I look better naked after taking The FlyWheel 5 Ride Challenge?

I hate working out. Exercise hurts and breaking a sweat is only fun when you’re doing it under naughty circumstances. However, summer is right around the corner, and the way that I like to dress on & off the stage sort of requires that I be in decent shape. Candy Morales is a personal trainer... Read more »

 Why supporters of Issa Rae, Trayvon, & The Hunger Games should sit back, relax, & enjoy the racism
At the beginning of February, I wrote a blog about Black history month that got featured on The View. Most people took it for what it was and had a good laugh. Other people took it as an opportunity to post some of the most racist comments I’ve ever read. A few days ago the... Read more »

An open letter to George Zimmerman: Why I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt
I have a theory about life. I believe that it is important for all of us to pursue our passions in life because if we don’t channel our need for the highs & lows that life hands us into something we consider important then we start creating problems and drama just to feel as if... Read more »

If you (or someone you know) is a producer, I have an opportunity for you
CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE ACAPELLA AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES. In 2006 I wrote a song called Lies Girls Tell. I didn’t know how to produce beats (I didn’t learn ’til 2008,) so the song sat around in my notebook until I received an instrumental that fit it well. After I recorded the song I ran... Read more »

Why I Don't Give a Damn About the KONY 2012 Criticism, and Why You Shouldn't Either

KONY 2012: The movement that NONE OF US can afford to ignore anymore

I hate Todd the Vegan: Why "Scott Pilgrim" made me avoid telling people I don't eat meat
I am a vegan. It is something that I avoid telling people at all costs. Whenever I go out to eat with friends I quietly scan the menu for dishes I can eat without making a fuss about it, but no matter how much I try to blend in I always have at least one... Read more »
