CHARLAMAGNE Tha GOD On STEPHEN COLBERT!!!




Monday, POWER 105.1 The BREAKFAST CLUB Host CHARLAMAGNE Tha GOD was at the ED SULLIVAN THEATER for an interview on The LATE SHOW With STEPHEN COLBERT!!!

CHARLAMAGNE and COLBERT discussed a myriad of topics including his book BLACK PRIVILEGE: OPPORTUNITY COMES To THOSE Who CREATE IT, and of course; President DONALD TRUMP.


Here are a few interview interludes:

On comparing the DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENCY to a Prison Sentence and a Reality TV Show:

"I think [Trump's presidency] is great for, like, a prison sentence, you know what I'm saying?   Other than that, I think it's pretty good."
"If you wanna look at the bright side, at least you always got content. It's very entertaining...I can't tell if we're in a reality show or if this is real life. I really don't know."
On the possibility of the ERA Of TRUMP being one big simulation:
"I've been having those conversations with people that think we're in one big Sim game. Like there's something up there that's directing us all, and you gotta make the right choices in life in order to get to the next level. So I don't think we're gonna get to the next level because clearly, we made a poor choice, and it's number 45 in the White House right now."
On strides made by women and minorities during the days of #45:
"I feel like people are realizing we gotta depend more on each other. It's a good thing though...you just gotta make sure you're on the right team."

MUGSHOT MAYHEM - WHITE MACON WOMAN ARRESTED For ATTACKING BLACK PREGNANT SOLDIER At CHEDDAR'S In MACON, GA!!!


Saturday evening in MACON, GA, U.S. ARMY RESERVE Capt. TREASURE SHARPE and Capt. STEPHANIE MITCHELL were attacked inside of a CHEDDAR'S RESTAURANT by 71-year-old Macon resident JUDY TUCKER!!!

The incident actually began outside the establishment while Sharpe and Mitchell were attempting to park their car at the restaurant's parking lot.

While outside, a man later identified as ROBBIE TUCKER yelled that the ladies needed to "learn ho to park!!!"

Once inside the restaurant, Robbie Tucker again verbally accosted the the two BLACK U.S. SOLDIERS, calling them Gay Black B!tch*s.

Robbie Tucker has been identified as the son of Judy Tucker, 71, who emphatically stated, "You were getting in our way while we tried to parl."

According to video shot by another restaurant patron, Capt. Sharpe took out her phone to record the abuse. Seeing her doing so, Judy Tucker lunged, swung, and, hit Sharpe in the face.

DAILY MAIL reports police were alerted and BIBB COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES determine that Judy Tucker was the primary aggressor and arrested her.

The arresting officer reported that it was his determination that Captains Sharpe and Mitchell had done nothing wrong.

BIBB COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTY reports;
"With all of the lunging and slapping happening, it was never shown through cellphone video that Mrs. Mitchell or Mrs. Sharpe did anything wrong. In fact, Mrs. Mitchell tried without fail, to stop the attacks Mrs. Sharpe"
DARDEN RESTAURANTS owns the CHEDDAR'S chain.

DARDEN RESTAURANTS stated about the incident;
" ... flies in the face of our values and those individuals are no longer  welcome in our restaurant.:
UNITED STATES ARMY RESERVE Capt. CHAD DIXON issued a statement;
"We are aware of an incident that occurred over the weekend that involved two of our soldiers in Macon, GA. Army Reserve Soldiers, Families, and Civilians are our most valuable resource. Health, welfare, and safety is always at the forefront of our minds with all we do. This incident is the subject of an ongoing police investigation and it is improper for us to comment on the outcome. We will continue to review the information related to this case as it becomes available."

Stephanie Mitchel and Treasure Sharpe both are captains in the U.S. ARMY RESERVE, and have respectively served since 2001 and 2008.

Judy Tucker is an artist who has taught at several Macon-area colleges, including the prestigious MERCER UNIVERSITY.

MERCER UNIVERSITY Spokesman KYLE SEARS sated;
"... Tucker is not currently employed by the school, and after the incident, will not be teaching at Mercer in the future."

#BLACKWOMANMAGIC - LEDISI On ROLLING OUT MAG!!!





Chocolate-Covered NEW ORLEANS-born Singer-Songwriter-Actress LEDISI has recently-released single ALL THE WAY that currently is doing very well, is preparing for her LET LOVE RULE TOUR with fellow songbirds TWEET and MELANIE FIONA, and; Lets Love Rule her Physical, Mental, and, Spiritual Energy as she is the cover story for the NATURAL HAIR ISSUE of ROLLING OUT MAG!!!


Here are some interview interludes:

On her Natural Hair Journey:

“This hair is a lot. I started cutting it because I wanted a little more freedom. Locs get really heavy the more they grow. I think it’s harder to maintain natural hair.”

On her current hairstylist:

“My hairstylist, he’s so great. I love him. He’s in L.A., I’ve been working with him for about a year now and my hair has grown so fast,” she revealed. “He lets my hair grow; he doesn’t cut it all the time. He knows how to do every style. His name is Sir Tony. If my locs feel too heavy, he helps me out with that. I love the color he chose for me. He knows how to make sure I’m not doing too much damage to my hair.”

On those hair creatives along the way who have helped her to design her hair evolution:

“I don’t like everybody touching my hair. It depends on who has growing hands and who’s going to take care of your hair. You need people that care about your scalp and the root of your hair more than how it looks. You have to have a connection that feels good with people touching your hair. I started experimenting with styles because I felt like no one was doing a lot of styles with curly hair. Then, I had a loctician, Michelle, she owns Loc Mamas in Atlanta.
“She started doing my hair and telling me I need to color it and give it more vibrancy. She would give me these African updos and she showed me how that can be a crown. And showed me that your hair is your accessory and should add to the attitude of who you are. I loved it, but then I wanted to be more Hollywood with my hair, make it do things that regular hair does — a wig does.
“People think ‘locs can only be in one style. I tried another hairstylist in D.C. — that I love — who was awesome with color. Her name is Tika Shefield [of Epiphany Salon]. She started playing with more colors in my hair, like blondes. The Truth album days, that was her giving me more fire and orange and bronzes. I was going color happy. She taught me about the healthiness of hair and then I moved to L.A. and met Sir Tony.” 

On some of her current Black History Makers:

“Definitely Michelle Obama for being authentic in one of the highest positions in the world and holding onto her family, her love and her intelligence. Seeing that is just so inspiring,” she said.
“Another history maker I love because she’s like a sun is Oprah Winfrey. All of the universe is whirling around the sun. That reminds me of Oprah, the lessons she teaches in all different forms, from a literal sense, to music, to visual arts. She keeps shining light on different things we need to hear from. It’s like it never stops. Her journey just keeps going and the older she gets, she’s more refined. 
“Black women are amazing. We’ll stand in the fire to get it done. We’ll just do it because it has to be done.”
Yara Shahidi, I just love her. She’s just blazing with this fire to be a voice of her generation. You can tell she listened to her elders, but she’s also had her own voice. I love seeing that same energy from a different generation.

NINA DANIELE Is PLAYBOY PLAYMATE Of The YEAR 2018!!!



BRONX-born LA MODELS  Supermodel NINA DANIELE has been given the distinction of being named the PLAYBOY PLAYMATE Of The YEAR 2018!!!


Here are a few interview interludes:

JOYCE: For starters, I wondered about the Bronx. I was young when I left, so the only thing I remember is the zoo. That was a big part of my young life.

NINA: I live about a mile from the zoo. You can still go there and see the giraffes, and the projects on the horizon. It’s still the same old Bronx.

J: So tell me about the road that led to you becoming a Playmate.


N: I’ve been modeling for about eight years now. When I started, the popular look for models was more Eastern European, androgynous, tall and gaunt. Time had to pass for it to come around to where a girl like me, whose ethnicity you don’t necessarily know, could be successful. Size, height and weight began to matter less; it became more about who you are as a person, what you bring to the table, how well you manage social media. So I decided: Instead of trying to be what the industry wants me to be, I’m going to be who I’ve always been.



J: Something HEF said to everyone was “Follow your dream.”

N: Well, that makes me really happy. playboy is a place where I feel accepted for who I am, not just what I look like. My first interview was about so much more than the photos; it was all about “Who’s Nina?” And when I got to see my story in print, I was like, “Damn, that’s me!” That meant so much to me—to not only be seen in my most vulnerable state, but to also be presented, in words, for who I am. That’s important to Playboy: how my brain works, how my heart works. Through Playboy I was able to talk about how it feels to be a woman in today’s society. 


J: So what now? Do you want to be an actress, a brain surgeon? Where’s it going?

N: I used to be the type of person who would start a million projects. I played the violin for seven years, I took karate for four or five, I played for my college tennis team, I did swimming, I did every type of dance, I played multiple instruments—then I decided I wanted to be a stockbroker, then a vet, then a crime-scene investigator, then an EMT. Modeling is, to this day, the only thing I’ve stuck with. It’s a waiting game, and no one tells you that. The longer you’re in the industry, the better your chances of success, whether that’s in front of the camera or behind it. When I was finishing college, I wanted to be a writing teacher. Back then I didn’t realize that when you used a credit card you had to pay it back, so all my credit cards were maxed out, and I had a job that barely made me enough money. I was still living at home, and the idea that I could make more than $60 a day really blew my mind. I would still love to teach young people, but not from within a school environment.


J; You can still teach some things. Down the road, you might be doing tours as a motivational speaker.

N: t’s possible. Anything is possible when you follow your dreams.
