When 1 +1 = 3.
First things first.


I'll give you a moment to take that in (actually, the moment is more so for me).
Bey dropped the great news on us yesterday evening during MTV's Video Music Awards.  I immediately started jumping up and down like a 5-year-old kid on Christmas Day while tweeting & screaming simultaneously in excitement with Leilani.  I then proceeded to call all my girlfriends in continuous screaming all the way through Gaga's opening act.  Oops.  Lol.

Bey's performance was flawless and she was glowing!  

"I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me!" -Beyonce

My heart literally melted when she spoke those words during her performance!  The cameras kept zooming in on Jay-Z in the audience and I've NEVER IN MY LIFE seen him SO joyful!  I couldn't stop smiling!  I was seriously holding back tears!

My photographer mom took the pics in this post.  Wearing a romper from F21.
A lot of my friends were texting me stating that I was the first person they thought of when they found out the news haha!  I hope it's a boy!!

Speaking of boys, they make up most of my best and worst dressed list.

Best Dressed: 1. Kid Cudi.  He was looking so fly with that black and gold vest!  Unfortunately, the only pic I could find doesn't do his 'fit justice! :( 2. Justin Bieber.  Besides the red hot pants and the leopard print sneakers, he was truly rockin that YSL pin on his blazer! #swag
Worst Dressed: 1. Drake lookin' like a chunky Swiss Roll.  That grandpa sweater was a fail.  It was ill-fitting too, and I found myself uncomfortably looking at him dressed like that smh.  Here is a video of him presenting (you can see the catastrophe in motion). 2. Nicki Minaj -______- #speechless

I did my own hair, and decided to try something new, so I flat twisted the sides then pinned up the back.  On the top I did a two-strand twist, bantu knot-out.  Sounds confusing huh lol?  Do you like it?

I found Kanye to be in a very humble, calm and collected mood which was nice to see (I am also a big fan of Kanye), and I overall enjoyed the VMA's this year.  Jay & Bey are such a powerhouse and so inspirational, it literally made my night.  I was a little confused by Gaga, and she actually started to scare me as she progressed in her role as a man (lookin like a broke off Ralph Macchio circa The Karate Kid).  Lei thought Tyler the Creator's (who won a moon man for Best New Artist) mom was wearing a catsuit which was confusing because she wasn't, and I almost fell off the couch when Tyler started Harlem Shaking on stage, then basically fell into a death dive right after.  However, Tyler's acceptance speech was a hot mess.  He stated he had a message for the kids, and as he started to recite this message, all you heard was Bleep! Bleep! Bleep! because he was cursing so much you had no idea what the message was!  Chris Brown's performance was unecessary and irrelevant.  The Amy Winehouse tribute was cool, but why Bruno Mars (although he performed well)?  I also shadily liked Miley Cyrus's Roberto Cavalli dress.  Not so much on her though... 

What were your thoughts overall?

P.S. My thoughts and prayers are still going out to everyone affected by Hurricane Irene.  Luckily my family didn't experience any damage, but for people that have damage and power outages, you are in my prayers!

And the award goes to...
Is Winter over yet??  I'm so over it!  Thankfully the snow is starting to melt, and soon I'll see what grass looks like again.  However, it's supposed to be 63 degrees on Friday so that is something to look forward to!  Woo hoo!!

Valentine's Day was a couple days ago, and I had work.  I'm single, but I still like the holiday either way lol.  I actually don't own the color red, so while everyone had on red, I was wearing beige, turquoise, and creme.  I know the color red looks great on me, but for some reason, I don't like to wear it.  Weird huh?  The closet thing to red I own is a red wash cloth!

Wearing: H&M sweater, F21 maxi skirt, Dolce Vita boots
The Grammy's were also the other night, and as we all know, the big upset was when Esperanza Spalding won Best New Artist over Justin Bieber.  I honestly didn't think she had a chance over those crazy Beliebers, but I was so happy for her, almost in tears!  She went to Berklee as well as I, and she was a normal musician just like the rest of us.  When I got to school she had just graduated and was actually working for Berklee, and I would see her walking around campus carrying her huge upright bass with her.  She was very friendly and always wearing a smile.  If she can make it, so can we!  Let's uplift not demolish!

Frenchie Davis said it best on twitter yesterday:
"Um, not knowing who Esperanza Spalding is doesn't make her a nobody... It makes YOU musically ignorant... Again, I implore you to go sit down."

Justin Bieber fans have been verbally assaulting Esperanza through twitter, hacking her Wikipedia page, etc.  It's really over the top...  Maybe they should check out her music and see all that she's done before attacking her.  At the end of the day she is a human being, and people need to treat her as such, whether they agree or disagree with her winning the Grammy.  I think Justin Bieber is great, and definitely deserved to win just as much as she, if not more... But clearly the artists weren't judged solely on record sales (which is a good thing).  He's like 12, he's got plenty of years for Grammy's to come his way!

I don't know what's going on with the top of my head in these pics but...

What are your thoughts on this years Grammy Awards, especially in regards to the Esperanza vs. Bieber controversy?
