Update: We Are The World 25


so iThink that this video, as "serious" as it is, is amusing. ie the rappers, and Wyclef's ever so strong singing *lmao*, to Jamie Foxx singing/talkin like a old man voice. lol.

just thought i'd give a rundown of the featured singers:
  • Justin Beiber, opening
  • Nicole Scherwinger [sp?]/Jennifer Hudson
  • Jennifer Nettles [idk who she is tho]
  • Josh Groban
  • Tony Bennett
  • Mary J Blige
  • Toni Braxton/MJ/Janet [chorus]
  • Barbara Streisand
  • Miley Cyrus, opening verse two
  • Enrique Iglesias
  • Jamie Foxx
  • Wyclef Jean
  • Adam Levine
  • P!nk
  • Bebe Winans
  • Usher
  • Celine Dion
  • Fergie
  • All the singers/artists/stars leading the chorus, w ad libs from Nicole, Nick Jonas, Toni, Mary Mary, some bald guy [Isaac Slade], Lil Wayne, Akon & T Pain
  • A "rap" feat. LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Will.i.am, Swizz Beats, Nipsey Hussle, Busta Rhymes, some others
  • Then a solo ad lib by Kanye West


" Nous sommes le monde, nous sommes les enfants.
Nous sommes l'une qui fait un jour plus brillant,
Donc nous permettre de commencer donner.
il y a un choix, nous le ferons.
Nous ├ępargnons nos propres vies,
le c'est vrai nous ferons un meilleur jour,
un juste nous. "

best i ever had


so iBeen thinkin iHavent done a food/recipe post in the longest! probly since like the summertime...

well iThought i'd do a couple.

iLove cornbread! it is JUST SO delicious!!!! at home, we can make cornbread at least once a week! that and we usually make enough for each person in our house to have like 2/3 servings [thats 7/8 ppl and about 18 servings] before my mom started buying the mix, she wld get cornbread from Giant sometimes, this was when we didnt eat cornbread that much. sometimes it'd be from Boston Market. then sometime last yr, while iWas at school, she started buying Penguin Natural Foods cornbread mix from Costco.

since i've been back to school last fall, i've been obsessed w/ having cornbread every now and then. i've even put my friends on! they weren't serious cornbread eaters, but now when one of us says cornbread, we all want some!

while i'm at school iDont have access to Penguin brand mix, so iStarted using Krusteaz Natural Honey cornbread mix [iBelieve you can use the fat free one too] after a failed try w/ the traditional Jiffy brand mix. iRemember my mom used to use Jiffy WAY back in the day, but iDont remember it like that. iUsed the mix last semester and it was soooooo dry! iWas like NEVER again.

SO so far my best cornbread mixes go to:
  1. Penguin Natural Foods

  2. Krusteaz

  3. Jiffy, ie if you cant find these other two, or MUST just use Jiffy brand. on one try to make it moist, i've used a can of sweet creamed corn. iWld suggest you find the smallest can, or dont use all of w/e can you do find. my mistake was that it was TOO moist, iPersonally didnt like it, but my friend and roomies did.
and you can better your cornbread "experience" by drizzling honey on it straight out of the oven! YUMMM. enjoy!

for more cornbread recipes see the ones on the Penguin site, here.

im yet to make a cornbread mix from scratch!!! iWanna try and see if iCan perfect the "cornbread experience" lol

Erykah Badu, another artist iAdmire, is preparing for the release of her new album New Amerykah Part II: Return of The Ankh. A couple of leaks have been circulating....

VideoJukebox: We Are The World


so as we all know, a bunch of artists [including celebs that iHighly doubt can sing... smh] got together through Lionel Richie to remake We Are The World, as a cause for Haiti.



what do you think?

VideoJukebox: My Sweetie


so Wed nite, Wale premiered the video for his song My Sweetie. just a couple hrs after the video for his current single Pretty Girls debuted on 106 & Park.

IMHumboldtO lol, this video is better than Pretty Girls, which iWas kinda disappointed w. There was even a lil uproar about there not being any dark-skinned girls in the Pretty Girls video, and ppl took it to say that only lite-skinned, White, & Hispanic girls are pretty. Frankly thats not why iDidnt really like the video. After all there was iBelieve like two darker skinned girls in the video, but iWasnt payin much attn to all that. iThink iFeel like it was kinda lame *shrug*

but of course you know iGotta rep my Nigerian heritage by posting My Sweetie ;) looks like Wale tried to go for a more "African/Nigerian" look...

Oh and iPeeped my godbrother, Osinachi, who produced Wale's Nike Boots Remix, and also works w Darkchild. oh and also this girl that went to my high school, iDidnt know her but iRecognized her....



iGuess you can compare it to the Pretty Girls video...




VideoJukebox: Paris Nights/New York Mornings


in case you don't know, Corinne Bailey Rae is one of my FAVE artists out there! She released, in the US, the video for her new single, Paris Nights/New York Mornings.

Enjoy! [as iDo! lol]

African Fashion


ankara is really just a basic fabric used in W. African countries like Nigeria, etc for traditional clothing.

here in the states, it seems like there has been a recent "boom" in the wearing of the fabric outside of African parties, iWld say starting from like 08-ish. ppl, specifically the females, are goin all out and having modern styles tailored for them.

even non africans have been spotted indulging in our traditional fabric in various styles. iJust wanted to let ppl know that this aint know new style/dress that the celebs have created, they've just hopped in the african bandwagon. maybe not so much, but, YOU KNOW WHAT iMEAN! lol

so iGoogled 'ankara styles' for some pics.


and of course iJust had to go on facebook and borrow some pix [from a party] from my good friends page ;)


aight im done, its just too much!


sites to check out: Vlisco, Olamild Ent, Fashion Africa, or just google like iDid!
