September 1, 2014—Los Angeles, CA— Better late than never! Alright, you knew this was coming. What I like most about watching awards show is joining the live conversation via Twitter (@GiselleAvenue follow ya girl) that captures every single moment. This was so hard to condense into 5 moments, but I wanted to keep it short and sweet.

So, what were my Top Five Moments?

  1. Weeks earlier, MTV announces Beyoncé will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and will be performing at the 2014 VMA’s

    4. Beyoncé arrives, fashionably late, to the red carpet in a stunning black lace dress designed by Nicolas Jebran.

In the words of Kanye, “They say good things come to those who wait, So I’m a be at least an hour late”

  1. All other opening acts hit the stage, including a spicy opening performance from Nicki Minaj with her notorious song, Anaconda. 
  1. Beyonce hits the stage and welcomes viewers to her world. Beyonce performed almost every track off of her self-titled album, Beyonce , which was released without warning on December 13, 2013.

We

Thank You

Kindly

Beyoncé

For Being

Such A

PHENOMENAL

Artist!

  1. Jay-Z presents the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award to his wife, Beyonce along with their daughter and heiress to the throne, Blue Ivy.

Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Mychael has made many strides in her short-time spent here in Atlanta, GA. She has unleashed the power of walking by faith, and today she can proudly say that her dream of owning her own salon has finally become a reality.

Event Recap: Colt 45 Presents Juicy J x Watch the Duck Live at Center Stage Loft

1 Sep

imgresSeptember 1, 2014—Atlanta, GA – What’s better than a free concert? That’s a hard question to answer. I had the pleasure of attending a dope brand activation sponsored by Colt 45 last weekend; it was worth every second (since it was free)! Ok, let me explain what I am referring to when I say “brand activation.” This is a branding term used to describe a process that starts with a very lucrative idea of making your targeted consumers try your product and it ends with the repeat purchase by the same consumers.

Colt 45’s Brand activation was held last month at Center Stage Loft in Atlanta. Guests were treated to a free concert featuring Rap artist Juicy J and hometown favorites Scotty ATL & Watch the Duck. DJ Speakerfoxxx topped out the show with her spins throughout the night!

Juicy J

“Don’t Watch Me, Better Watch that Duck!” This is the famous tagline for the trapstep 3-member group, Watch the Duck, based out of East Atlanta. The group is well-known for their hit single “Poppin Off” as seen on MTV Jams. Picture this: Guy dressed as a duck + lead singer with a vintage James Brown sound + dope 808s= Watch the Duck. Download their mixtape here, let’s just say I’ve been jamming to it since I left the concert!

IMG_3591One of their group members explained the concept behind the unique group name; “Everybody sees the duck traveling smoothly on top of the water but nobody sees it kicking hard as hell under it, struggling to stay afloat.” Source

Juicy J put on a great show for fans. Although he went on kind of delayed, (he was traveling from Tuscaloosa, AL.. I’m sure from a private concert for one of the frat houses) the performance was worth the wait! Juicy J took us back with some of his hits as a member of Three-Six-Mafia such as Stay Fly, Poppin’ My Collar, and Sippin On Some Syrup.

While Mo’Ne Davis is pitching fastballs like nobody’s business, a team from Chicago is also turning heads at the Little League World Series.

A little positivity is always a breath of fresh air. The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars have given the Windy City another reason to be proud while raising morale in the community at a time when people are rioting in frustration over the death of Michael Brown.

TheGrio.com reports that the all-black team has secured a spot at the Little League World Series. The team has grabbed a lot of attention because they don’t look like the typical little league roster, and David James of Major League Baseball’s Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities program said the All-Stars have people in the pros excited!

“All of us at MLB are talking about that team,” he said. “It’s really good for the game.

August 18, 2014, Atlanta, GA– Not another reality TV show!!!! No matter what the masses say somebody’s watching it (me tonight). VH1 premiered their new reality TV show “Atlanta Exes” featuring some of our favorites celebrity’s ex-wives. For the record, at least the women casted were actually wives! I digress…

Kevin Hart’s ex-spouse, Torrei Hart, is one of the leading ladies featured on the show.

What’s the tea? MINUTES after the show aired, social media blew up with congratulations to Kevin Hart for proposing to his girlfriend! imgres-1

 

Well, well… This is my best illustration of what Kevin Hart was probably thinking:

Caption This: Show Airs..
Kevin: Oh, you’re not about to taint my image! ***Proposes to girlfriend

 

The show is just getting started, but something tells me there’s more to this story.. What do you think?

Why I’m Not Marching for #Ferguson or #MikeBrown

GiselleAvenue:

The #Ferguson story has me feeling a certain type of way, and this article helps explain what that feeling is..

You won’t see me out here. Nope. | Protestors drop to their knees and put their arms in the air during a rally for Michael Brown Jr., who was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer Saturday, Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, in Clayton, Mo. (AP Photo/St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Laurie Skrivan)

I didn’t wear a hoodie for Trayvon. I didn’t march to Save Our Girls. And I didn’t March for Mike Brown and peace in Ferguson. It’s not that I don’t believe in the causes and I don’t want things to change, it’s that I’m not convinced marching in 2014 is really going to make a difference.

This isn’t 1960 when marching peacefully actually evoked change. Or when the act of sitting in a restaurant sparked a nationwide movement that changed some things. It’s 2014 where people create hashtag campaigns and funky…
