    Dope Girl Series: http://amzn.to/1zbXk6I


    This is one of those books its hard to give a review on because you dont want to give out spoilers but you cant just say it was good because thats an understatement.

    Everything about this book is straight glass...from the cover to the characters to the knowledge being dropped to the humor to the very end.

    I waited on pins and needles for this book to drop and now I can't wait to discuss it because it was truly awesome.

    If you thinking about reading it, make sure you start from the very beginning. It's the only way to truly understand the dope girl and her family of misfits.

    Urban Teen Magazine's Celebrity Interview London Ellis!

    in Entertainment

    Hellooooo, my name is London Ellis and I am singer/songwriter from London chasing my dreams with my big stubborn personality toget my music heard and to make other people happy with it. I have always wanted to be a singer. You know when you are asked in school what you wanna be when you grow up? Well mine wasn’t the astronaut, (even though the thought of jumping around on the moon does sound fun), not the Princess, (even though having a prince whisk me off my feet wouldn’t be such a terrible thing, damn maybe I should re-think this…) but anyway I said “I’m gonna be a Popstar” and I have never changed my mind since.

  • The Urban Woman Radio: Brand New Year

    in Moms and Family

    Welcome to a Brand New Year of the Urban Woman Radio on BlogTalkRadio. We have alot of things to discuss. Did you see the movie Selma ? I had the pleasure of attending a Press Screening as well as Q&A Session with the Producers and Stars of the Movie.  Selma is a powerful movie that is very timely to what is happening now in both Ferguson and NYC. 

    Selma won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song "Glory". Common gave a powerful speech about how Selma changed his views. I think Selma should have won more awards. David Oyelowo was nominated for a Golden Globe but did not win.  I think that is a real injustice. But I am not surprised. David also did very well in The Butler. He has a very unique personality. David is not a Jamie Foxx or a Denzel Washington. I am so happy that Oprah recognizes his talent and genuine spirit.  He is unlike anything we have ever seen.

    I think Ava Devurnay should have won for Best Director. She is the first African American Woman to be nominated for such an honor. Parts of the movie reminded me of Malcolm X. Ava made us explore parts of the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that we had not looked into before. He was much more than "I Have A Dream.." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was not without flaws. The movie implied that he was not faithful to Coretta or "Corey" as he lovingly referrred to her. I  never stopped to think about his jealousy of Malcolm X.  Ava did an outstanding job.

    No show would be complete without mentioning Dance Moms. We are in Season 5. Three of the original dancers are gone. Nia will most likely become the newest scapegoat. In order to keep the show relevant and full of controversy, Abby Lee Miller is allowing Maddie to participate in Music Videos that will lead to many discussions. First it was Chandelier and now its Elastic which co stars Shia Lebouf.

    The Urban Woman Radio: Waiting to Exhale (So Excited for the Whitney Movie)

    in Moms and Family

    Welcome to The Urban Woman Radio. We are definitely waiting to exhale as we anticipate tomorrow's Whitney Houston Movie on Lifetime.  Are you going to be watching ? At first I was not going to watch it. I felt Angela Bassette was being disrespectful to the memory of Whitney Houston especially since her family did not want the movie to happen. 

    After seeing the previews, I think it is going to be a hit like the TLC movie. They certainly did a good job of casting. We will see and you know we do a special recap tomorrow night after the movie.

    Speaking of movies, Selma did not receive as many Oscar nominations as it should. David Oyelowo should have been nominated for Best Actor. However, as I said in my previous show, he is not Denzel nor is he Jamie Foxx or Cuba Gooding Jr. This is in no way meant to be disrespectful. He is not the typical Hollywood definition of cool.  He is more of a Sidney Poitier. Speaking of which he could certainly portray him should they make a movie about his life. 

    I also wanted to mention that we will also be doing restaurant reviews. Today's review is of the restaurant Erawan on Bell Blvd in Bayside. I went there the other day for take out. The waitress asked me, "Would you like to pay first ?" i should have said no. But really ? I did not see anyone else given that "option" 

    Did you all see Dance Moms on Tuesday night ? Holly is in rare form. Showin' out as they say. Big shout outs to Holly. I did not know she is a native New Yorker. She is from the Bronx. Nia deserves so much more than the back row and ethnic roles. She is very talented. I hope Debbie Allen takes her under her wing one day. We all miss Chloe, Paige and Brooke. The show is not the same. Everyone is blaming Abby. I blame the Producers. They cause the drama in order to keep the show on the air. The girls are paying the price...Stay Tuned.
