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.

How To Lose A Guy in 30 Days

Gasp! A whole week, and no blog post?! Fret not, friends…I did write, just not for this blog (I know! It’s like I cheated on myself or something.) Check out a piece I wrote for MTV Voices on how Ramadan affects one’s “dating” life, “How to Lose A Guy in 30 Days” (shout-out to comedian Aman …

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

The other day, I told someone they got played… specifically saying something to the extent of… “He played you like a Laker.” (Loose summary: she had high hopes, was let down in the end… yeah, you get it.)

Dear Drake…”Take Care” of Your Fan’s Emotions

Dear Drake – At first, I wanted to write you to say thank you (it’s later, right? I’m guessing you expected gratitude once you released the followup to your debut album, Thank Me Later.) You see, your music has been heavily featured in the soundtrack to my recent life. Whether it was 2009’s “Best I Ever …

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 …

How Metta World Peace’s Daughter, Diamond, Inspires Me

FIRST LISTEN HERE: Diamond Artest – “Fighter” [KHANversations.com Exclusive] I’d never been inspired by an eight-year-old until I got an email from Metta World Peace (yes, the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest.)

BBM: Beyond Boring Machine

I said it once, I’ll say it again… I would never date a Blackberry. For those not following along, my definition of a Blackberry, as it pertains to this blog post, is a person who uses the RIM device, most often associated with finance and entertainment professionals. NOT the fruit…I rather enjoy the fruit actually… Anyway. …
