Just In Time For Easter ...

I can't believe how fast 2013 is flying by us, I mean it's already Easter soon. Well, I love this time of the year because that means nice warm weather will be approaching as well as we get to become festive for the Spring Time. 

I wanted to choose a light colorful and festive meal that will liven up our spirits on Easter Day. Thanks to Real Mom Kitchen for posting the colorful Easter Deviled Eggs. I am a BIG FAN of Deviled Eggs and instead of painting the outside of a hardboiled egg, why not dye the egg's soft part?! 

I remember being a kid and loving to dye hardboiled eggs, create silly faces and then afterwards eat them. I hope I can relive this childhood fun-time with my nephews when they come over. Hopefully, we'll try this new idea of eating colored eggs this year. 

Has Anyone Done This Before?!

Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience In Stores Now!!!

I purchased my copy digitally, though I will still buy my hardcopy soon...

Today, Justin Timberlake releases his third solo album titled 'The 20/20 Experience' which features the hit single "Suit & Tie" feat. Jay-Z. A week before the album's release it was available on iTunes to stream, which I refused to listen to because of the already awarding raves it was receiving on Twitter

I just knew I wasn't going to be disappointed once I purchased it. Though, there is one song I love already besides "Suit & Tie" and that is "Let The Groove Get In" which he recently performed fantastically on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Purchase 'The 20/20 Experience' On iTunes Now!

L&L: Lavan Lamar Clothing Apparel

It's Great To See People Are Choosing To Become More Artistic Than Being A Local Rapper...

Since last year I've been paying a close eye on two gentleman who were in the process of creating and starting their own clothing line. The clothing line titled 'L&L' (Lavan Lamar) features high-end street-wear that anyone male or female can rock. The two gentleman hail from Westfield, New Jersey and when I say their designs are DOPE & SICK, I mean it! The clothing specializes in shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies for a reasonable affordable price. 

L&L has already been getting rave reviews to where as they have been featured on blogs and can be seen worn by celebrities, most famously the pop superstar JoJo. I don't think it will be long until L&L will appear on fashion runways or on more famous celebrities. To make things even better, I will have the chance to interview the two on the clothing line so, stay tuned next week for that. 

I love that the L&L line is so simple yet stands out. The letters L with the & symbol just makes it high-end. They've also dapped in mixing their shirts with tie-dye designs. This is definitely something I can see myself in, because I'm a sucker for simple, comfortable yet making a STATEMENT. I mean my name's LaTroy so why not rock L&L gear. By looking at the pics of models wearing the designs, I can honestly assure you, there is no wrong way to wear L&L. You'll see as well after the jump!

Meanwhile check out some of their pieces for L&L and if you are in LOVE like I am, then you can go on ahead and purchase your Lavan Lamar shirts, sweatshirts or hoodies at their online store.  Be sure to also look out for the exclusive Spring 2013 Collection coming soon.

The scripted series 'Jenifer Lewis and Shangela' tells the story about thee ICONIC Legendary actress Jenifer Lewis taking in Shangela, becoming his mentor as he tries to pitch his own reality tv series as well as Jenifer trying to remain relevant in the spotlight, but througout the episodes she seems to be overshadowed by Shangela's new found fame since appearing on RuPaul's Drag Race

The Skorpion Show: Interviews Roc Nation Artist Bridget Kelly

Bridget Kelly Won A Grammy For Writing "Einstien" On Kelly Clarkson's 'Stronger' Album (MY FAV SONG!!!) Didn't Even Know She Wrote It...

If you're like me and only heard of Bridget Kelly from blogs/radio then you'll only know she's signed with ROC NATION (Jay-Z's Record Label). After watching The Skorpion Show interview Bridget Kelly, I now have a great sense of who Bridget Kelly is as a performer, artist and person. Even though she has yet to put out a debut album, the newcomer is already an established successful artist. Don't believe me? Take a look:

Reagan Gomez Presents: Almost Home, Ep. 1 'Finding Home'

I Told You I Was Addicted To YouTube WebSeries...

Here's a new scripted WebSeries that you'll also enjoy. Where can I start? Hmm...Well, do you remember the hit 90s African-American Family Comedy 'The Parent 'Hood' featuring Robert Townsend, Faizon Love, Suzanne Douglas and Reagan Gomez who played the beautiful Zaria Peterson? If you do then you'd want to know Zaria (Reagan Gomez) has grown up as a married woman with two loving children. 

In this Youtube WebSeries created by Reagan herself titled 'Almost Home', Reagan creates a story based on two brother/sister siblings Lisa and DeJuan as they move to California to start their new lives after the death of their mother. There for a fresh start Lisa (Gomez)and her younger brother DeJuan befriend a local Cali girl Becca (Denyce Lawton) who then seeks to help Lisa find a job.

The first few episodes of 'Almost Home' is entirely funded by Reagan herself but she needs the help from US to help finish funding her project so that she can hopefully create and write more episodes to come. This isn't an easy job, especially with Reagan being a mother and wife, she fully can't use all her coins for this project! The series is well worth it and if her goal of $25,000 is reached we will get more episodes which will see familiar faces of whom will make on screen cameos such as; Wesley JonathanJackie Long, Denyce Lawton and of course Reagan herself.

Rihanna '777 Tour' Documentary

You Got It!?...

I don't know if you remember, but last year as Rihanna went on a '777 Tour', where Rihanna took along 256 fans and journalists as she traveled across the world to perform on this '777 Tour'. Well now, we all get to witness what when down. 

NO, this documentary will not be like Beyoncé's recent HBO Documentary 'Life Is But A Dream', but it will show Rihanna behind the scenes rather than in the media and on stage. We actually get the behind the scenes Rihanna. I hope she shows footage of her smoking her weed and cussing up a storm (which I LOVE). I hope Chris Brown makes an appearance too! The '777 Tour' Documentary will air May 6th on FOX

Keyshia Cole Receives #BeyHive Backlash...

*Prays* Please GOD Don't Let The #BeyHive Start Throwing Beyoncé CDs At Keyshia Cole...

So if you weren't on Twitter or the blogosphere yesterday, then you had miss the total backlash Keyshia Cole received from the #BeyHive (Beyoncé fans). Keyshia Cole has been in the media waves as becoming a bit vocal about certain artists such as her too vocally rude opinion on former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams last month during and right after she performed alongside Kelly and Beyoncé for the Super Bowl Halftime Performance. Fans have already been coming for Keyshia's throat and they came HARD!!! 

This time around Keyshia is back again getting attacked all over the world when she had something to say about Beyoncé's newest track "Bow Down/ I Been On": 

Along with that tweet came the following:

Keyshia has got to be mad at somebody though?! Maybe it's her struggling career, look I don't know. What I do know is, I don't think Keyshia has learned her lesson the first time around when she got on Michelle William's case. But as always Keyshia Cole is a firecracker and will not shut down for ANYBODY! After a few Meme attacks from fans, I highly suggest Keyshia Cole STOP NOW! the #BeyHive fans are crucial and territorial when it comes to their #KINGBEY. The fans sent Keyshia Cole the following messages:

Everyday Lies: Ep. 2 - 6

Remember back in early February when I introduced you all to a new half improv/scripted webisode series by Steve Royall titled 'Everyday Lies'? Well, I didn't even know there has been SIX episodes so far. I really have been straying away from the internet since this school semester got so heavy. 

Here to catch you up I'm posting episodes 2-6 so that we all can get a good laugh during our lunch breaks or leisure time. Must I remind you, this show is hysterically funny. YouTube is the place to go when you have a creative idea for a show or short film. YouTube is like the new COMCAST for people. I find myself watching YouTube videos much more than I watch my own television.

Enfamous's EP Release Party [Pics]

Though I wish I filmed and took more photos...

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to Enfamous's EP release party for his long awaited first EP 'My Revenge' which turned out to be very successful. The ep was available to download for FREE! And with numbers shown, the downloads reach high in the thousands. Enfamous along with his band, producer and amazing background singers took the stage to put on a stellar performance I will remember for the rest of my life! 

Enfamous performed the lead single "Hope You Hurt" off 'My Revenge' and that performance touched people in the audience so much some were tearing, as they could relate to each and every lyric and verse Enfamous poured his heart out as he sang so melodically and effortless. I'm really proud and happy at the artist Enfamous has made himself to become. What I really love about Enfamous is that he sits down and writes his own music, arranges the melodies as well as visualizes his performances and puts it all together. 

If there is one unsigned artist who you are to look out for in 2013, I would have to say Enfamous. He is taking New Jersey by storm and the lyrics he writes down with his pen and pad are soon going to earn him a Grammy Award. Here are some photos I have taken, you can view them after the jump.
