#BlackHistoryMonth - 28 Days Of Black Women In History ( Day 5: Sister Rosetta Tharpe)


Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Also known as the God Mother of Rock N Roll is Sister Rosetta Tharpe.  This woman is a legend in the rock n roll industry but hasn't got much of the recognition like the men who she inspired like Elvis Presley who listened to her growing up. She was the type of artist to shout, and swing hips before Little Richard and Johnny Cash. She turned this type style into a international sensation honey. Let me just say she was a bad ass woman.

Rosetta Nubin is her birth name. She was born in Arkansas. When she first picked up a guitar at age 4 who knew by age 6 she would be performing with her  mother and a evangelist group in churches in the South. Rosetta and her mother continued playing all the way to the 1920's spiritual music, which is now known as gospel.

She had a very unique voice. Her particular style was a mix of blues, jazz and gospel. During the 1930s it was not typical to see a woman playing a guitar especially a black woman. People in the gospel community had a hard time accepting her also. She never let the haters change her. By age 23 in 1938, she joined the Cotton Club Revue. It was a New York City club that became very popular. Rosetta had a hit with her single, "Rock Me."  It had a traditional gospel and rock 'n' roll vibe mixed with blues.

"ROCK ME"

Now her music was kinda sexual but was also gospel so you can imagine the uproar she sent people . She was dominating the industry as a black woman guitarist. She even collaborated with many men in her field.  By the 1940s she even collaborated with white artists Jordanaires. Now it was still segregation while she was performing for mixed audiences. She wasn't able to sleep in the hotels so she slept on the bus. She even had to get food from the back door because she couldn't come inside. She did what she had to do, so she could be successful. 

Later she started to get a celebrity status. Around the time of  World War II she created a song called 
"Strange Things Happening Everyday," with Decca Records. That song reflected on everything going on in the world at that time. It is her biggest record to date. Now some people think it's gospel ,and some think rock n roll. You listen and decide.
"STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPPENING EVERYDAY  "

She broke down the door for black women who wanted to play instruments the men did especially guitar. She toured in Europe years before dying in 1970s by a stroke. 
She influenced many of your favorites like Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley. Because she was a openly bi sexual woman who played gospel in rock n roll, the industry didn't give her the recognition she deserved. But in 2007 she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Recently she was elected into the Rock Hall of Fame.

New Music Friday's! Taylor Swift, Fergie, Katy Perry

So yesterday Katy Perry dropped ger video to her single Swish Swish ft Nicki Minaj.  The video is whacky but in a funny comedy type of way.

With now over 15 million views  Katy is the number 1 YouTube video.

Earlier in the week I heard Fergie was coming back which I love . Of course queen Nicki Minaj is featured on this track as well "You Already Know. " The beat is so dope,  and Fergie vocals slay.  Nicki rode the beat like a cruise ship.


What makes more sense than Taylor Swift making a comeback on the week rival Katy Perry drops her new music video for her diss to Taylor and Fergie makes a comeback.... None. Taylor has debuted a lyric video to her song "Look What You Made Me Do. With the split from Calvin Harris,  and Kim Kardashian calling her out it fits. This single so far has mixed reviews.  It is one of her darker songs. I'm interested to see the tone for the following single.

New Music Fridays-Jay Z 4:44


Such a great friday. The king Jay Z has released his his newest album 4:44 which twitter believe is a response to his wife album Lemonade. On the first track called Kill Jay, he says "He Let The Baddest Girl Get Away, Eric Bennet"  This line is in ref to Eric Bennett who use to date Halle Berry. 

The album in my opinion is classic, Jay album. Dope beats and just spiting realness. Right now you can only get album on on Tidal and sprint customers get 3 months free. You get all exclusives of Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Beyonce. So get tidal and spend your week listening to the new Jay album.

Womans Intuition


Being a woman is like being a superhero. We got the type of power men just dont have. That is "Womens Intuition". Every woman has it, but if you dont use it for your advantage it has no use. 

I would probably be with my ex who I dated for 4 years if it wasnt for my womans intuition.  5 years ago I had a dream one night he was telling a girl he loved her. I woke up in tears. I called him 6am asking is there someone else. He replied, "NO". After I looked through his facebook friends I came across a girl who was dating him as well. So it saved me and I left that relationship. 

A womans intuition is a gut feeling you get that something is not right and you shouldnt ignore it. It can help us discover the truth, and avoid bad situations. 



Even if your are insecure, that intuition is like a bee at a bbq outside It will leave you alone. Evenually you have to do something about it. If you have trust issues, trust me I understand. Dont drive him away, give him a chance to prove himself. But if you think it, look into it. For example, something is off in your relationship investigate first. Dont look like a idiot and jump to conclusions. 

I am the king of facts. I recently met a guy who I thought was a good guy. The problem was he always called me when he was at work, or in the car. Never when he was at home. My bestie thought I was bugging, so I followed my intuition and he was full of shit.
Girls please dont think you are crazy following your intuition. Follow your gut feelings. Remember you know yourself better than anymore else.


Keke Palmer Takes Legal Action Against Singer Trey Songz

⚏⚏⚏⚏⚏Press.Play⚏⚏⚏⚏
@kekepalmer is taking legal action against @treysongz after she allegedly was put in his latest video without her permission while attending his supposely Miami party/video shoot. "So I low key feel bad for judging her before actually hearing the song and seeing the video. I get where she coming from, the line in the song that says her name and her playing with her phone was awkward. Somebody must of thought getting keke in the video during this part would be dope. I have been in situations like this before where I have fucking left or dont go. It is scary and uncomfortable having people ask you to do something you dont want to. But legal action is a lil far. I just want her to learn from this, everybody not your friend and got your best intrerest.

Camila Cabello Walks Away From Fifth Harmony Leaving Only 4

Well another one bites the dust. The group fifth harmony just announced Camila the lead has left the group. She's being doing her solo thing a while now. The new single Bad Things with Machine Gun Kelly is a smash me and my daughter love it. 


After Zayn left one direction the group continued and Zayn went to have success. My only concern is how she did it. Zayn left in a sneaky way nobody knew he was working on solo stuff. Camila just shot a video for her single and performed. So it's been clear. This group wont last after the 3rd album. I can see it.

These girls have been having been beefing since the summer. At the Canada's Much Awards these girls were salty Camila won with her single she had with Shawn Mendes allegedly. Laurens mom went off on Twitter when Camila manager alluded that she won 4 awards that night. Lauren mom had to set it straight 2 of those were fifth Harmony's boo boo. The tweet was later deleted.

Normani was forced to speak out after rumor spread she was being mean and shady when she couldn't think of anything nice to say about former band mate Camila during Facebook live. Damnnn. She had lots of nice things to say about the others though.

Well the group let this statement last night. I wonder how they will do after their lead leaves. I predict Normani is excited she will probably be the lead now.  Oh and they have unfollowed her. 😩

Kanye Does Another CryBaby Rant This Time About Beyonce.

Kanye has lost even more marbles. This fool showed up to his concert last night 1 hr late allegedly. Then ranted for about 30 mins and later ended concert.  During the last rant a week ago. He talked about how Jay Z did not come by the house to see if Kim was OK after the robbery and instead they called. Now his latest rant, he claims he heard Beyonce would not perform live at the MTV awards if she didn't get video of the yr. First off a grown ass man going off about something he heard says a lot about his asss.

I really suggest Kik runs for the hills. This time I think the media won't judge her for it. We will completely understand.
