I attempted to be proactive with this blog since I almost missed the deadline yesterday. My goal is to post my daily blog before noon. I picked up a magazine and read up on somethings I assume Cosmopolitan feels article worthy. Unfortunately it was an issue from October, so most of the gossip is most likely stuff you already read about.
.. in less words I work in a cubicle and this entry was handwritten at work
I did read a lot of the emmys news, which is way out of my comfort zone so bare with me. The thing that first caught my eye was a picture of J-Lo wearing a remake of the famous green Versace “jungle dress” that she wore almost 2 decades ago. And I must say she doesn’t look like she aged at all.
In TV news we said goodbye to the Game of Thrones after 8 seasons, the GOT cast took home 12 emmys and I STILL have not seen 1 episode. I am the 1% 😛 . Pose’s star Billy Porter (PrayTell) is the 1st gay black man to win an Emmy (Outstanding lead actor).
In fashion for the Emmy’s the trend was Red & Pink and in my opinion was worn beautifully by 2 of my favorite actresses: Regina King (in Jason Wu) & Taraji P. Henson (in Vera Wang). I don’t know if that was “IN” fashion but those ladies definitely looked amazing.
In news for 2019 that I will not be letting go ..
Brock Turner. I know we are all familiar with the college freshman that only got a 6 month sentence after being convicted of rape and sexual assault. I recently read an excerpt from “Emily Doe” who has now come out to the public with her identity. Channel Miller. Brock Turner served only 3 months of a 6 month sentence for charges that held a sentences upward of 14 years in prison all because he was a “good athlete”. Come on Amerikkka we have to do better.
In other whyte privilege news, the big college admission / SAT score scandal! Celebrities Felicity Huffman & Lori Loughlin are just 2 of the many teacher, coaches, parents etc involved in the scandal. Huffman plead guilty and was sentenced to 2 week in prison and fines that won’t even make a noticeable wave in her bank account and a few hours of community service. Loughlin pleaded not guilty and will be heading to trial facing 20 years in prison, lets see how that turns out.
The accused defense in the tabloids are “a big happy family” and “the children didn’t know” blah blah cry me a river. These celebrities kids already have a leg up being that their parents can afford the most expensive schools now used their money to having a more unfair advantage by basically paying people to edit their kids test scores. “The children are our future”. I say give them the maximum sentence as well as a full investigation on all school involved, they’ve been doing they just got caught.
Speaking of Whitney Houston, apparently she is going on tour in 2020. Of course the late great Ms. Houston will be a hologram of course, with virtual background dancer. I haven’t looked future into the matter but I’m sure we will hear about it in the near future.
Lastly some news at random that I found interesting or at the least a “oh..hmm” article. Kodi Lee the young autistic viral video sensation contestant on America’s Got Talent. Well if you’re like me and don’t watch the show you have no idea what happened. Spoiler he won AGT and the 1 million dollar prize. Congrats.
OTNB star “crazy eyes” (Abubakara Galadima) recently visited her parents in Nigeria and spoke out about the scarcity of clean water. Shame there’s place in the world that don’t have access to running water. We haven’t forgotten about Flint, Michigan. Shouts outs to Jayden Smith for helping both of those places in the world having more access to fresh/drinking water.
If you’re like me and you enjoy the comedy of Bob’s Burgers you’ll be happy to hear they have an official cook book full of the wacky names and delicious burgers.
Next time I’m back home I will make sure to visit Channing Tatum’s Bourbon St. bar “Saints & Sinners”.
Same time tomorrow.
