Diddy’s Last Train to Paris Launch Party

jessicaalbapeaceI have always been a fan of Diddy, now even more so because I follow him on Twitter. From his tweets I’ve learned three things about Diddy: He loves what he does, he loves positivity and he loves exclamation points!

This Saturday, Diddy had an amazing launch party at MyHouse in Hollywood sponsored by CÎROC Vodka for his new album, Last Train to Paris.

As was to be expected, the night was a duel celebration of Diddy’s Last Train to Paris and Michael Jackson’s genius. Several times throughout the evening, the DJ stopped to spin MJ tunes and Diddy took the mic to pay homage to the musical giant and thank everyone for supporting Bad Boy.

Some of the celebs in attendance were Taraji P. Henson, Estelle, Wesely Snipes, Jessica Alba, Cash Warren, Hill Harper, Regina King, Elyce Neal, Lil Mama, Vanessa Simmons, Lo Bosworth, Holly Montag, Amerie, Ray-J, Rob Dyrdek, and Rachel Smith.

Shameful: Trying to Profit Off Malia and Sasha

I’ve never been a fan of Beanie Babies. In fact, I’ve never purchased one for our daughters. I tend to back slowly away from trends and fads, especially when it comes to my children. 

I’m so glad our first lady disapproves that Ty, Inc is profiting off dolls they have named after first daughters Malia and Sasha. The dolls don’t look anything like the Obama girls. I guess they think all black girls look alike. Shameful!

“We believe it is inappropriate to use young private citizens for marketing purposes,” Ms. Obama’s spokeswoman said.

Mother-to-Be Jill Scott on Pregnancy and Motherhood

jillscottartEssence.com has a wonderful feature article on their Web site today. If you haven’t heard the news yet, Jill Scott is pregnant and expecting a son in April. What’s so amazing about her pregnancy is that she was told that would never be able to conceive, but as we all know, everything is on God’s timetable. 

Here’s some sage advice from Jill to other moms:

It’s so hard to believe, it’s hard to have faith, especially when things aren’t working out. It’s difficult and a challenge when you continuously ask for what you want and need in your life or at least what you think you want and need in your life, but that’s when you have to believe and have faith the most. Who knows how the blessings will flow or at what time or what hour those lessons are going to come. So I’d simply share to learn to be grateful for everything. When you give up, when you start to believe again, when you’re crying, when it hurts so bad, when you’re too embarrassed to face anybody— whatever—just be thankful because I believe that’s all God really wants from us is to be appreciative. It’s been my way of thinking and I’m hoping to teach this lil’ one these things.
