Justin Bieber Schedules Live Stream Instead of Attending The Grammy

ImageImageAfter not getting nominated for not one Grammy award this year, singer Justin Bieber is left feeling a little slighted. Instead of gracing the award show any way, Bieber has decided to skip it this year and put on his own show via video stream.

With so many fans world-wide, many are wondering if Bieber’s video stream will hurt the award shows viewership tonight. The stream is scheduled during the same time the award show airs on CBS and will feature new music and a Q&A session. I’m not sure how Bieber fans can deny such an event.

Will CBS suffer tonight? It’s hard to say but I am sure the Grammy Show got Bieber’s hint and we will see the young star next year.

 We haven’t heard many lyrics from rapper Lil Mama lately but we will see her on TV in the near future. No, I am not talking America’s Best Dance Crew but a TLC biopic.

23 year-old Naitia ‘Lil Mama’ Kirkland, has officially been cast as Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, the fallen member of the legendary R&B girl group TLC in a VH1 biopic. The biopic is currently in pre-production but there is no release date as of yet.

Rap legend MC Lyte couldn’t keep the secret in and spoke with reporters about the film while on the red carpet for the VIBE Impact Awards. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will,” she said to reporters. “She just got the role of Left Eye in TLC’s new movie.” MC Lyte also revealed that her and the young rapper are working on  an upcoming female rappers’ collaboration record.

Looks like 2013 will be a big year for Lil Mama!

20130113-183715.jpg

Many of us fell in love with Chef Roblé and his cooking crew on the first season of his self-titled BRAVO reality show. It was not only inspiring but refreshing to see a young black Chef on television running his own business and doing it well. The shows humor and minor drama with the staff was an added bonus.

I was a little nervous for a while patiently waiting for season 2 but thanks to an Instagram announcement and several photo hints, my nerves are gone. The second season of Chef Roblé & Co. will premiere February 10th on BRAVO. Are you looking forward to seeing what Chef Roblé and the team will cook up this season?

LeBron James is Sports Illustrated 2012 Sportsman of the Year

lebron-james-2012 It comes as no surprise. Miami Heat’s LeBron James is Sports Illustrated’s 2012 Sportsman of the Year.

“He was the most dominant athlete this year – MVP of the NBA regular season, MVP of the NBA playoffs, led the Heat to the NBA championship and Team USA to the gold medal in London,” Paul Fichtenbaum, Editor of Time Inc.’s Sports Group tells PEOPLE Magazine.

James is not only a star on the court but off the court as well. James created a program for the children in the Akron, Ohio school district, had the highest selling Nike shoe of the year, been involved with some of this year’s biggest ad campaigns and continues to run his clothing boutique UNKNWN.

I’d say he is deserving of the title. Congratulations LeBron James!
