Throwback Thursday: FROGGER

Who remembers playing Frogger when it was the hottest game on the Super Nintendo or Playstation consoles? I was obsessed with Frogger and couldn't stop playing. This is definitively a Throwback Thursday, I thought i'd post this instead of a picture. Try your chance at beating the game!!! 
Have Fun, Good Luck!  

New Video: Chris Brown Feat. Big Sean & Wiz Khalifa 'Till I Die"

Finally a video for the promoted pictures of Chris Brown, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa that have been going around for the past few weeks is finally out. The trio teamed up together, hopped on a track entitled "Till I Die" and shot a video which features cameo appearances by some of your favorite weed smokers. I don't know if the song is a leading single off of Chris Brown's follow up to his Grammy award winning album F.A.M.E which is titled to be Fortune

"Til I Die" is a different track for Chris since he's been releasing pop/dance tracks on iTunes lately. The song is something you can def can listen to while chilling with friends at a kick back. The video is pretty interesting and dope! Although when the video starts I thought it was an ad commercial, so like a dummy I fast forwarded the video and actually found myself in the middle of the video. Only problem I have with Chris Brown is his 'nose ring' ... not for him!!! 

Take A Look At The Video:

Rosci & Terrence J Share A Special Announcement

It's A Sad But Yet Happy Moment For Black Entertainment Television. 

BET's 106 and Park hosts Rocsi and Terrence J announced live on the show their mutual agreement to depart from being hosts on the hit music countdown live show. Aside from it being a sad moment, there has been talks through the blogs and magazines that both hosts wanted to pursue other opportunities in their careers. Of course, Terrence J who just was in 'Think Like A Man' wants to pursue more acting and hosting jobs as well as Rocsi who wants to focus on her acting career. Both hosts will be missed deeply for which they brought in a lot of viewers on the show and at home. 

Take a look at the heartfelt video of the announcement:

I know I will miss the two of the being hosts, because they were relatable in every way. My first time ever attending a 106 and Park tapping, the hosts were Rocsi and Terrence J. I will always remember them and thank them for putting on such a fantastic show. I will remember during commercial breaks where Rocsi nicely gave me a hug and we shared little laughs about her Pomeranian pooch. They haven't said when they'll be leaving the show, but let's just hope the new set of hosts turn up the notch and hold it down for Rocsi and Terrence J

I hope they hold auditions to be the next hosts, because I will audition and I will become BET's 106 and Park next host! Please share with me for those who have been to a tapping of 106 and Park, share with me your experiences and memories.

What Are Some Great Websites Where I Can Apply For College Scholarships?!

Hey everyone, I need a huge favor from those who can or know someone who can help me out. As we all know, college is not the most cheapest place to further an education. I'm recently enrolled in NYIT (New York Institute of Technology) and the tuition there is not so bad as I thought it would be, but beings though according to the government my mother makes "too much" money for me to qualify for financial assistance from the government "free aid". The school has did a big help by allowing me to qualify for their grant and transfer scholarship awards; The bad part is I'm once again taking out more loans. In the outcome, I'm not complaining because most of the awarded loan money including grants and transfer scholarship fund has covered most of my first semester tuition. There's just one thing i'm some thousand short. 

Now, back when I was at my community college, I had applied for scholarships that they provided and I was never awards any of them because they process just took too long and well I graduated just last week .With that being thrown out of the window, I am not trying to find good outstanding scholarship websites that will provide me the best way on getting a scholarship to help me pay the rest of my college tuition. I would like to hear from you guys what sites or sources you have used or heard other's talk about that gave him the best scholarships. If you know anything please help me out, I don't want to waste a year again on a scholarship website that never got back to me. If you wish to email me these websites please do

Thank You!!!

Tasty Tuesday: Overnight Blueberry French Toast

For those who didn't know I am a sweets foody (a person obsessed with food). I could practically eat anything sweet in the morning. I know it's bad, but there's this infatuation I have with sugar. Please don't let me be the only one, can I get an AMEN?!

I was scrimmaging around online looking for something tasty to post when I came across actress and party planner extraordinaire Tori Spelling's cute little mother's day treat. The dish Overnight Blueberry French Toast looks absolutely delish!!! I'm no fan of french toast, but the way Tori did the works on it sure made me want to try it. I don't know about you, but by looking at the picture I'm drooling for it now. Of course I had to share this with you all!

Weekend Recap 5/25 - 5/27

Hey Everyone!!!

Friday 5/25
Friday, I broke day believe it or not! The day before Thursday, I woke up at 3 in the afternoon and didn't go back to bed until 6 Friday evening. You can guess that I was over my Friday. But I basically spent my morning traveling to New York City to register for classes at NYIT but found out the two ladies I needed to see weren't there. I then went up to UCC to purchase my last and final text book for a summer class that I'm taking. As soon as I got home, I cooked lunch then chilled a bit, next thing I noticed I woke up and it was 9pm. 

That Friday night started off Beyonce's opening night at Revel Resorts in Atlantic City, a string of 4 concert night events for Memorial Day Weekend. I was mad I couldn't afford tickets to go so I Twitter stalked hash tag #Beyonce #Revel to see pictures and videos fans were posting as they were enjoying their time. 

Here's a video of some of the songs Beyonce performed at Revel


oh' Saturday & Sunday this all I did :-)! 


If you follow former Cheetah Girl and ex-girlfriend of Rob Kardashian, Adrienne Bailon on Twitter then you'd know she and television host Julissa Bermudez have teamed up together as the two Latina's take on New York City in their upcoming reality show Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne premiering June 3rd at 9pm on the STYLE Network.  

The show will focus on the two along with their closets best friends as they try to get back into the entertainment industry after a few ups and downs they've endured. Adrienne which she feels people have forgotten that she's a singer and not some random reality tv ex-girlfriend takes us along her journey of being a newly signed artist under R&B songster Ne-Yo's Compound IslandJulissa who you probably remember as being BET's 106 and Park host for some years along with Big Tigger, as she takes us on her journey of striving to get her own talk show as well as some fantastic opportunities along the way. 

Check out the trailer below:

Will You Be Watching?
I Know I Will!!!


For those who love to see women of beautiful, volumptious, thick, curvy body shape, i'd suggest you check out BABE MAGAZINE. BABE MAGAZINE is a published magazine specializing in the likes of women who aren't the typical size 0 model type. Beauty does come in all different shapes and sizes and this is what the magazine offers plus more. There are tons of Eye Candy girls to view as well as get to know. these models are jaw dropping as well as the magazine's CEO Ms. Toni.X

Not so long ago I had the pleasure of meeting Toni and two of the BABE Models at a lounge in New York and shall I add they are beautifully drop dead gorgeous in person. I think Toni has done a magnificent job on choosing her models and the message she's trying to get across with her magazine brand. Modeling is just not for the skinny women but for women who have bodies and curves. 

BABE MAGAZINE is currently on it's 7th issue and will continue to sell more issues as long as there are volumptious women who aren't afraid to WORK in front of the cam. If you're a big girl, have curves, thicker than a snicker than you too can be a BABE Model; just be confident and bring something different to the table!

New Video: Melody Thornton Feat. Bobby Newberry "Bulletproof"

Former Pussycat Doll now independent solo artist Melody Thornton slays in her second follow up music video of her new mixtape P.O.Y.B.L(Piss On Your Black List) which she released in March of this year. Melody and Bobby Newberry covers La Roux's hit "Bulletproof" but changes the style of the song making it a ballad and less dance track. The video is phenomenal to add, the element of black and white is always classic and coveting. Indeed, Melody has always been the soulful voice with powerful vocals to reach extrodinary heights in my eyes.  

More on the video though if you love vintage film editing and furniture then you'll love what the two are serving at us. Nothing can be more beautiful than having 1920's furniture on the beach with the ocean waves just rolling elegant and smooth. You just have to take a look at the video yourself to see what I mean. Oh' one more thing, look how beautiful the two look in the video...WHY CAN'T I BE THEM?! Stunning! Enjoy!!!

Throwback Friday - Donna Summer "She Works Hard For The Money"

Today's Throwback Friday is in memory of the Queen of Disco Donna Summer, who passed away last week at the fabulous age of 63 due to lung cancer. As our legends soar high above the clouds to Heaven we are fortunate enough to be left with an amazing legacy they've created.

Thank You Friends & Family!!!

Thank you to all those who sent me congratulatory messages on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram and BBM. I appreciate all the love I received based on my college graduation 5/23. A lot of you showed your love and wished me well, that it was hard to keep up with you all in thanking you. I tried my hardest to thank everyone and I've accomplished to thank most of you :-). There is never a time when your love for me goes unnoticed. I thank you for all your kind words and believing in me when I couldn't see a powerful strive within myself. This open letter is just for YOU! 


Throwback Thursday: Living Single

Since the big thing to do on Thursdays is putting old pictures up on social networking sites and calling it Throwback Thursday, I decided to join in. Back in the early to late 90s before Sex and the City, there was a show of four African-American woman living singly in a brownstone apartment out in Brooklyn, New York entitled Living Single

The four woman Khadijah James (Queen Latifah), Synclaire James-Jones (Kim Coles), Maxine "Max" Felice Shaw (Erika Alexander) and Regina "Regine" Hunter (Kim Fields) all together made being single and living in New York the LIFE

Although there were relationships that sprouted along the way, this great unforgettable show will always be a favorite of mine. It was mostly the comedy that was shared between each character. 

How many of you remember Living Single
Left to Right: Max, Khadijah, Regine and Synclaire
My favorite is Synclaire!!!

You can catch episodes of the show on tvONE which seems to air frequently throughout the station.

ADD Blogged Out: Thirst Traps Of The Week Amazon Edition

My friend Dan Andre and his two friends created a blog entitled ADD BLOGGED OUT where they post everything from new music, comedic videos, basically anything that has the hottest buzz on the net the three of them have their hands on it. there 's one particular posts that I found quite entertaining and amusing and it is the "Thirst Trap"

Basically to my understanding "Thirst Trap" is when a drop dead gorgeous female posts pictures of her face or body to social networking sites and it makes the guys go crazy bisurk into drool mode. Well as funny as it may seem which it is by the way, "Thirst" means "Desperate" sorta kind of. You just have to head over to ADD BLOGGED OUT and look at the post for yourself to see what I mean. I find it so funny but yet entertaining.

Where does Dan and his friends get these ideas from lol?

Last night everyone got to say goodbye to their McKinley High School favorite Glee members Finn (Cory Monteith), Rachael (Lea Michelle), Mercedes (Amber Riley), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Noah (Mark Salling), Santana (Naya Rivera), Quinn (Diana Argon), Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) and many others as they Gleefully graduated their way out. Glee has been on since 2009 and those of us who are Gleeks (fans) have grown up to love these unforgettable characters and fell in love with their individual storylines from break-ups, to make-ups, to bullying, celebrity tributes, trying to fit in, gender/sexuality, pregnancy and even family drama

The show isn't ending, at all Thank GOD, but sadly our favorites are leaving the show. Who's to say they won't return back for an episode or two?! I know I will love this cast and my two favorite lesbians Santana and Brittany Pierce (Heather Morris). *inserts real tears* I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! 

Here are some interview clips I pulled from YouTube displaying highlights from the show the cast shared:

Favorite Instagram Of The Week - Badgalriri

If you're not on the famously iPhone/Android app Instagram by now, I say kill yourself...JUST KIDDING! Instagram is a photo based app that allows you to post any picture you want, edit the photo with effects and share it with your friends. A lot of celebrities use the app to post candid pictures of themselves rather having the paparazzi upload silly, wrong, and embarrassing pictures of them. 

My favorite Instagramer though has happened to be ROC NATION recording popstar Rihanna. We all know Rihanna is a trendsetter and she shares her looks with fans on the app. What made me favor Rihanna's Instagram photos is that she posts whatever she wants and captions it however she feels like; they're entertaining and dope at the same time. I love Rihanna mixing SWAG with COMEDY to her photos, that's exactly what she gives me. If you have the Instagram app check her out @Badgalriri and make sure you follow me @LaTroyWatson

Who's your favorite Instagramer?

Girls Night Out "CLUB AMNESIA" [Video]

There's nothing like going out and having a good time with your Churls (girlfriends). The photo was taken in early January (from left to right: Brieana, LaTisha, Kyra and myself; we're missing one more person Fallynn). We partied at Club Amnesia in New York City to celebrate a friend's going away party. I just found the video I recorded of the churls getting ready; what a great and LONG night it was. Here's the video I hope you enjoy our craziness.

What Happened To Authentic Pepsi Commercials?!

What ever happened to the 90s PEPSI commercials that were authentic? Growing up I remember the PEPSI girl now actress Hallie Kate Eisenberg who you would see all over the PEPSI commercials which seemed memorable and fun. If you don't remember then take a look:

Back then PEPSI commercials meant a lot to people all over who were avid PEPSI cola drinkers. It was something about the little girl who made you think the next time you were at a store, restaurant, bar, etc. your first beverage was a PEPSI. Nowadays, i'm just not getting that vibe with PEPSI and their commercials. Of course, PEPSI uses A-list celebrities in their commercials, but it's like okay, how about something different. We see these celebrities EVERYWHERE now that the internet has become such a global microscopic eye of one's life. Yes, back then celebrities were used in the commercials, but notice how it just wasn't about the celebrities the focus on the commercial was Hallie Kate Eisenberg

I think it's time for something different and real from PEPSI. They're getting a bit redundant with how they're trying to sell their product. PEPSI commercials just isn't what it used to be like; with regular models selling it and not just being lazy and paying a celebrity to do the commercial. What i'm trying to say is that the PEPSI commercials back then were more relatable than the ones out now. Although, I stopped drinking soda I know many people who do and when they purchase a PEPSI can they don't even automatically think of the recent commercial with the big name celebrity. PEPSI needs to change someone or something in that advertising department. Personally, I'm looking for something loving, relating, unforgettable and timeless. 

We are stuck with commercials like this:
What are your thoughts? 

Tasty Tuesday: Cool Cucumber Salad

Call me whatever you want, but I never knew a salad could be considered a salad still without lettuce. Duh to me hence "Macaroni, Potato and Sea Food Salad"...don't judge me. On a serious note, I always thought a salad always contained lettuce. However, i'm not a big fan of lettuce. When I get a salad I'm usually eating everything else but the green leaves. I am a fan of cold cucumbers and thanks to friend in my head Bethenny Frankel former New York Housewife now turned reality tv entrepreneur she has shared her cucumber salad recipe.

New Music: Ester Dean "Baby Makin Love"

Profound singer/songwriter/actress extraordinaire Ester Dean over the weekend just released a track of hers which she wrote entitled "Baby Makin Love". The song gives you a 90s feel with her raspy graspy vocals over it. If you're not familiar with Ester Dean then you'd know these following artists whom she has written for such as Beyonce, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Soulja Boy Tell' Em, Lil Wayne, Kelly Rowland and R. Kelly just to name a few. 

The biggest songs out of these artists I just named I can bet your bottom dollar that song was written by Ester Dean. Adding to her many accomplishments, over the weekend Ester Dean was just awarded Songwriter of the Year at the BMI Awards. This young lady from Oklahoma has a lot up her sleeve and for the industry. Currently signed to Roc Nation fans patiently await an album to come out. Meanwhile check out her new song "Baby Makin Love", this is a never ending repeat for me!!!
