Beyoncé makes major boss moves for Vogue’s September Issue

It ain’t nothing to a boss. Music Icon makes history again.

Beyoncé takes Vogue literally. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has given Beyoncé  “unprecedented control” over the September 2018 issue, sources reveal. Beyoncé’s contract includes full control over the cover, the photos inside the magazine, and the captions.

According to sources, Beyoncé wrote the captions herself in long-form. This is the first time Vogue has handed over all creative and editorial control to the featured subject. Although, Beyoncé didn’t do an interview, in her last Vogue cover in 2015.

If you thought Beychella or her charitable clothing line with Balmain was Beyconcé’s height. You are sadly mistaken! Beyoncé has hired the first black photographer to shoot a cover for the publication since its existence 126 years ago. The trailblazing photographer is Tyler Mitchell, 23.

Mitchell is no stranger to high-profile shoots. Mitchell has also shot for Marc…

The Black Love Deficiency

This is bang on point. I couldn’t agree more.

Bulma's Bantu Knots

My husband was recently asked to be the DP of another project which, aside from having a trailer that had nothing to do with the film, was characterized mostly by what the filmmaker told us was a ‘diverse couple’ that he couldn’t wait to bring to the screen.

The diverse couple you ask? A white woman and a black man.

How very original.


In a world full of romance story lines in every genre, it is disheartening how often times ‘diverse’ couples miss the mark when it comes to showing black couples in TV and film.

Outside of what are considered blackfilms or shows (and even those sometimes), shows and movies that are considered mainstream or “normal” films, aka media that can be watched by majority of Americans with limited gripe…we just don’t see a lot of black couples on screen.


I mean, let’s look for some current shows.

Black men who love black women

Some black people date people of other races because truthfully they are running away from being black and don’t want the reminder. White people have a different experience in this world and some black people want to tap into that, but trying to tap into that means in most cases they lose who they are so they never have true intimacy with their partner because they’re not fully being themselves. I love black women because I’m understood by them, because they’re going through the same thing, but worse, we don’t even need to talk, I only have to look in her eyes she understands my pain, she knows where it hurts, she’s got my back and I’ve got hers. Getting with a white person will never take that pain away in most cases it makes it worse, because if you can’t express something so personal to the one you love without being ridiculed or dismissed it causes stress. That’s why I love black women, oh and the fact that they look damn good too. Black love is an amazing thing.

A Vacation For The Record

When I think of vacation, I think of blue skies, a nice sandy beach, warm ocean water, and of course this year for our first family vacation, I had thoughts of us being in optimal health to enjoy all that lovely weather.

Well…(and I’m sure it won’t look like it from all the following pictures) the last thing on my mind was being sick on vacation, but that’s exactly what happened. Our first family vacation and it was full of runny noses, sneezing, coughing, sore throats, and basically fighting to enjoy all the good that comes with taking a much needed break.

I’m not talking about just myself. We were all sick wit’ it. However, we still managed to have fun at the end of the day.
