It’s “NEVER OK” for a Man (married or single) To Have a Side Chick

beyonce-lemonade-hbo-compressedI woke up to a flood of email messages this morning from blog readers and show listeners wondering what my thoughts and opinions were regarding Beyoncé’s new music “Lemonade”.

And based upon what I’m being schooled on is, Beyonce pouring out her frustration and bitterness in a collection of songs laced with lyrics of infidelity and deceit.

The gist of all the buzz is, Beyoncé’s husband of six years, rap mogul Jay Z cheated on her when she makes reference to Jay Z‘s mistress “Becky” in her song Sorry,” which ends with the line, “he better call Becky with the good hair.” Also referencing his mistress being a white woman.

The woman identified as Jay’s mistress is a fashion designer by the name of Rachel Roy. Roy is believed to be the catalyst behind Solange‘s (Beyoncé’s sister), infamous elevator assault on Jay Z in 2014. Surveillance video inside the elevator captured Solange wildly punching and kicking Jay Z as Beyonce stood by and watched with detached amusement.

My thoughts are #1, I can’t believe ‘good hair’ amongst women is still being referenced in 2016, along with the notion that women have to compete with white women for a man, their man or any man for that fact.

#2, That women are so damn desperate for a man, that they would actually think or accept it being ok for him to be with you and a side chick? What the fuck is wrong with women today? If he can’t  commit to you, kick his disloyal ass to the curb. Point, blank period!!

A male associate of mine said to me this morning, “Beyoncé is a strong woman to stay with Jay Z” Really? This has absolutely nothing to do with her strength but the message she’s sending to young woman regarding their self-worth. If you know he’s cheating and got a side chick, it’s not love it’s stupidity.

There you have it, my  2 cents and opinion on the matter..

Vocal Powerhouse Terrell “T-REX” Simon on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

712685_IYG66mnwHe started delivering soul stirring music at the tender age of six, when he discovered his gift singing in the church. He got his professional start in New York City while performing with a traveling choir throughout the region.

In 2003, his connections led him to platinum-selling singer-songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings, who took him on the road with his act. This gave T-Rex Simon (pictured above), the exposure of touring with major artists such as John Legend, Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, and Musiq SoulChild.

As a huge fan of Dave Hollister, coming up T-Rex adopted a similar sound, patterning his voice after the vocal sensation, and later touring with him as a backup singer. His TV appearances include Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, David Letterman, Jay Leno, 106 & Park, and The Monique show, among others.

His music is available on every digital platform including Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, iHeart Radio, XM Satellite, and SoundCloud, with hard copy CDs available on

Tune in “LIVE” tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST via blog talk radio as we catch up with T-Rex to discuss his new single “In His Image”.

“Willow Smith Has Style? So They Say”

Will and Jada Smith’s 9-year-old daughter Willow,  rocks the red striped pants and studded lumberjack boots as she leaves her hotel in NYC today.

The pint-sized 9-year-old is already being labeled a “Fashionista” and “Style Icon” for the younger set, for some reason I can’t see it.

The youngest member of the Smith family just debut her single entitled “Whip My Hair” on 106 Park yesterday. Willow seems extremely mature for her age, my children’s book “Just call me Sophia” may be a little too immature for her.

The liitle girl seems so grown….I wonder if she still plays with dolls?
