Crying a River over Justin Timberlake’s Marriage

It’s been a rough weekend for myself and many other 20-something women. And no guys, it has nothing to do with PMS.  It has to with…this: Yes. So many hearts broken, so many dreams shattered. But, as an optimist always believes, there’s an upside to every moment of sadness. In this case? An inspiration for …

“Everybody Got a Deal, I Did it Without One”

Someone told me that in the future, people won’t have 15 minutes of fame… they’ll have 15 gigabytes of fame.[1] And sure, everyone thinks they can be “Internet Famous” (it’s really not that hard to open a Twitter account, start a blog, or post a video on YouTube.) But to do it right, it takes …

Daddy Issues: What My TV Fathers Taught Me

Happy Father’s Day! I don’t know about you, but I spent most of my childhood (the 90’s) in front of a television set. In fact, I actually once told Simpsons-creator Matt Groening that Homer Simpson raised me (he looked at me with a little bit of concern, as if his eyes were saying, “D’oh!” Not …

My Problem with Pakistan: From Sesame Street to Twitter

  Dear Pakistan, Can you stop being so f-ing dramatic? Ack – what? That’s an inappropriate way to start a conversation? I apologize. I’m sorry. Allow me to (re)introduce myself – my name is Khan.

One Joe Jonas & a Side of Chipotle Mayo

Look. I’m a sucker for boy bands and anything 13-year-old girls like. I’m currently addicted to Carly Rae Jespen’s “Call Me Maybe” and have been known to watch Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” onDemand. Needless to say, as I was sitting at the bar at Birds in Franklin Village, catching up with the oh-so-dreamy Manish Dayal of 9021O …

Impossible to Meet Bieber?…Never Say Never.

What does an Extra correspondent, Diddy’s son, and a tech trade show have in common? Um. They all helped contribute to one of my life goals…a conversation with Justin Bieber (maybe not a LIFE goal, but at least something that 13-year-old SK would think was really dope.) The trade show? CES in Las Vegas. I …

Now I’m Feelin’ so Fly Like a G-…John Salley?!

What happens when two brown girls walk into a Far East Movement party? It’s like a blizzard. Okay, not really, but I wanted to incorporate the lyrics of the group’s most popular (albeit lyrically confusing) song, “Like a G6.” Anyway. Far East Movement. In case the “Far East” part of their name didn’t give it …

GUIDE: Becoming Internet Famous

YOUtube. No, not MyTube. Not YourTube. Not…okay I’ll stop, this is clearly a really crappy attempt at a joke. Anyway. Four years ago, I used YouTube as a way to get a job…in the “I’m gonna upload these random news reporting clips from college and send private links to potential employers in the hopes that …

Breaking News! Brian Williams Entertains Me

This just in: Brian Williams is a huge fan of obituaries, owns two American cars, and thinks Jon Stewart is a necessary branch of government. Good evening, I’m Samia Khan. (The lead of my hypothetical newscast after my run-in with Brian Williams.) Alright enough of the daydreaming. Let’s talk business. My business. News business. I …
