Day26 Stan Reporting

Check out the album cover for Forever in A Day out April 14. It looks the same as the last one, but I like it. They shot a behind the scenes video for YouTube.

This is Day 26's fourth installment of Day 26 by Request: Usher's "Bedtime."

And just in case you haven't heard the new single. The rappers were so unnecessary. The songs reminds me on Usher's "Love in the Club." I can totally see them doing the same dance steps. Luv the song though.

Also, the video below provides some insight on why Que's has been acting so mucho loco.

Better than Chris Brown? You reachin boo boo.

Um thats it for now for tour dates check out their myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/day26

Keri Hilson: In a Perfect World

I really wasn't checking for Keri Hilson a few weeks ago. She seemed like a nice enough girl, but a little blah. There was nothing about her style or energy that made her stand out too much. I liked "Energy", but not enough to wait for an album. It was "Turnin Me On" featuring Lil Wayne that really made me pay attention. That song is hot and the video is cute. I think I like it because I can do the dance steps. Anywho, ever since that song I've been waiting for "In a Perfect World." Plus, I'm just in the mood for new music. I'm listening to it now and so far I like it there are a lot of collaboratiions. I guess she's trying to capitalize on the popularity of other celebs like Trina, Keyshia Cole, Akon, Chris Brown, Timbaland, Ne-Yo and Kanye West.

The album is a mix of pop and R&B. The songs go together this album is not all over the place and I like that she is not selling her coochie like so many of these other "singers." Her album takes on the tone that she is an independent woman that doesn't need a man, but would welcome a relationship. Kudos! It's danceable and I listened to the whole thing. Other stand outs of the album include "Knock You Down" featuring Kanye West and Ne-Yo and "Energy."

I give the album 3.5 stars out of 5. You could just download the singles to save a few bucks though. Click of the post title to learn more about Miss Keri.

Top 10 Forms Of Bitchassness according to Sean “Diddy” Combs

Top 10 Forms Of Bitchassness according to Sean “Diddy” Combs

So this list has been posted all over the blogs and I thought I’d put my two cents in.

10. Guys who wear pants so tight u can see their calf muscles and CLAIM they're straight! that's BITCHassness.

I don’t think guys who rock the European fit are necessarily gay fashion forward maybe, but not gay. I even like the colored jeans like purple and red. Honestly I think it’s a trend for the youngins who want to assert themselves as cool and progressive. The trend probably won’t last very long. Remember a while back dudes were wearing pink?

Now, there are some guys who get slim fit and tight confused. You should be able to walk in full stride and sit without mooning anyone. Dudes who intentionally bare their booties are suspect.

I wouldn’t date at guy who wore the slim fit. It’s more of a generation/lifestyle thing. What grown man who doesn’t entertain for a living wears jeans on the regular? Also I think that when a guy follows trends too closely it’s a sign of immaturity, narcissism, and/or insecurity.

9. The definition of bitchassness is telling someone they can’t do something because you failed at it yourself.

I concur. To me it’s almost like the word n*****. It’s really saying “You ain’t ish cause I ain’t ish.”

8. BITCHASSNESS = Tellin people your weave is your hair.... COME ON NOW LADIES. He will know when he touches it.

LOL for true especially when some people get a little lax in making an effort to make it look real. Your part really starts at your ear? You really got a full head sewn in for $50.00 including the hair?

7. My definition of Bitchassness? A.I.G....!!! ?

Are you flipping kidding me? Really, it’s like that? So disrespectful. I didn’t know people like this existed. They will have their place in the lake.

6. N*ggas that wear colored contacts... LOL LOL!!!!!

If your eyes are the windows to your soul and you choose to cover your window are you ashamed of what’s inside, who you are?

5. Women that lie & say they don’t usually give head on the first date... LOL!!!

That’s not bitchassness, that’s nasty.

4. BitchAssNess is when someone's negativity or negative qualities drag down the efforts of us as individuals...

Right. Get on or get off.

3. Bitchassness is not taking care of ur kids, because the baby mamas don't want to take care of you!! LOL!!

Nasty dogs!

2. Tweeters who expect to get a reply to EVERYTHING they say-"i'm not following diddy anymore, he nvr tweets back!"

I don’t have a twitter and I don’t really know what it is, but I do hate when people somehow appoint themselves as a priority in your life.

1. Bitchassness=giving up on your dreams!.. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!

Amen. There are two things I hate in life: a slug arse mofo (You know like Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton) and a quitter. How are you ever going to know what you can achieve if you always quitting? Nothing worth having ever comes easy.

Nine Reasons I Heart Michelle Obama

9. This is a truly accomplished woman. Lawyer, Chicago city administrator, community outreach worker and wife of President Barack Obama Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama of Chicago’s South Side is the business. Michelle graduated in 1981 from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School in Chicago's West Loop as class salutatorian. After high school, she followed her brother to Princeton University, graduating cum laude in 1985 with a B.A. in Sociology. She went on to earn a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1988, where she took part in demonstrations demanding more minority students and professors.

8. She serves with a pure heart. Unlike so many celebs and politician who show up for publicity shots in heels and Italian leather, Michelle is out there in her green work boots and jeans putting work in and mingling with the other volunteers. In photos it always seems like she is actually connecting with the people around her. I’ve been to many volunteer events where the volunteers treated the people they were helping like children or science projects.

7. You can tell her husband treasures her and truly values her opinion. She ain’t no arm candy. She doesn’t emasculate or belittle Barack, at least it doesn’t seem that way, she supports and nurtures him. It is totally possible to let your man be a man and not be a doormat (i.e. cheating on, neglecting your feelings, selfishness, cursing and violence is not just being a man, that’s a dog). Men like to feel needed and wanted. They also like to provide and protect. Letting him be a man means letting him do things for you that you probably can do for yourself, and it sometimes means letting him fall (i.e. make stupid decisions) and being there to help him up. Michelle does that, it seems.

6. Her children seem so well mannered and well rounded. We’ve all seen kids running wild in grocery stores, malls, church and during the holidays. Some kids see an audience as the prime opportunity to show out. Not Sasha and Malia. I like the fact that they dress and act like kids.

5. She can dress her butt off. I heart her official White House photo dress. I’m saving my pennies right now. She dresses like a modern day Audrey Hepburn. I label her a “modern classic” like me. The fact that she’s not a label whore is also attractive. She’s not one of those scrappy wives who just throw ish to show they “got money.” Her clothes fit her body, age and personal agenda.

4. I can’t lie I love the fact that she has brown skin. As a person of color with darker skin, which I love, I’m glad to see Michelle serve as an example of beauty and success to girls and women who have issues with their skin. Too many times brown skinned women are in the background and seen as unwanted (you’ve seen the videos, the dark girl on roller skates serving drinks and/or shaking her arse you never see her face and the other girl sitting next to the star living the good life) but Michelle is her husband’s #1.

3. She’s inclusive. Throughout her career she was able to build a diverse network and she put-on a lot of people throughout her husband’s campaign. The people were not of one ethnicity, economic background and/or career field. Building a diverse network complete with mail room clerks to CEO is essential in a strong network. Networking is my kryptonite.

2. Her hair. Most of us (sistas) could have hair like that if we didn’t abuse it.

1. Her confidence is amazing. You can tell it doesn’t come from her clothes, her man, or her money. It comes from her working on her character, talents and taking care of your body. Unlike too many sistas her strength is not in her ass.
