Last year Kreayshawn exploded on the scene out of nowhere with breakthrough single Gucci Gucci. This year she's the subject of an interesting GQ profile that dissects her rise to fame, her motley crew, and her fans.

Spotted on Becoming Nikki Lynette ...

For the past 2 weeks EVERYONE has been talking about Rihanna and Chris Brown's new songs when they weren't speculating about Whitney Houston. The general consensus has been that Rihanna has no self respect and needs to set an example for women who have been abused. At first I said this was a bad career move for her, but after reading Nikki Lynette's blog my opinion's shifted.

Nikki brings up a good point that maybe Rihanna has forgiven Chris and moved on so she can work with him again. Rihanna has stated before that she doesn't want to be seen as a victim, and maybe by collaborating with Chris she is setting an example for women who have been abused -- just not in the conventional way people want her to. Instead of being a victim, Rihanna comes across as someone who was able to forgive, get on with her life, and not let the public's opinion of her situation control her next moves. Like Nikki says, "Who the hell wants to be a famous victim?"

Every once in a while an article comes along that stops you in your tracks and gives you a kick in the ass. This is totally what happened this week as I read 30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself. It made me stop and reevaluate everything. Of course I had to send it to my friends. They all agree it's just what we needed to hear, so I thought I'd share it with you too.

"Special announcement, the revolution will be televised. The revolution will be televised." Those were the first words uttered by Sean "Diddy" Combs about his new network REVOLT. Since REVOLT's a network created by an artist for fellow artists and music lovers, I'm hoping it will catapult music television to the next level for years to come.
