BEYOND HELP AMY WINEHOUSE


"Beyond Help" that was what paramedics said when they got to Amy Winehouse House at Camden, Beyond Help was the end of the Genius Soul Singer and Star Amy Winehouse.


Amy Winehouse was found dead on Saturday the 23rd of July 2011at 3.45pm in the afternoon. At first the police announced the death of the star as "unexplained" then it was announced that it was too early to speculate on a cause of her death but sources (sky) suspected she overdosed on drugs. There goes the rise and fall of a beautiful song bird with a darkness. She died on Saturday aged 27, 27 and the myth that surrounds it, we have lost a lot of talents and great people but sad to say, Amy Winehouse case was expected by the world and her parents have been very concerned and supportive. I love Amy, I remember when I had tough times in my life, I used to listen to her album to cheer me up and lift me on my lonely walk to Uni. It was like her words made me accept my problems and be strong.

She is or was one of my favorite artists, there is this sound in her voice that gives you the chills and her words pierces through me. For me she was real, anything you saw about Amy was true, it is like you can tell a lot about her by looking at her. You almost pity her, such a huge talent that couldn't find peace and serenity but darkness and addiction. I am sure her music touched us all and for those that didn't really fancy her personality, you have to admit you have moved to one or two of her tracks. She is truly quality, I feel sorry for her parents, loved ones and fans who sang to her songs in the mirror....I know I did (cringe..shy)...I will say in my dark times I really appreciated Back to Black and Love is a losing game. Funny enough, I was singing to the song and telling the hunk how much I really appreciated her as an artist and how deep her song gets me thinking and the next day I heard :(.

MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE AMY WINEHOUSE A TRIBUTE TO YOU!!!!

WEST AFRICAN NIGERIAN MUSIC

TO BE HONEST, I AM NOT ONE TO LISTERN TO NIGERIAN MUSIC AND I THINK SOME PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO THAT. UNLIKE THE USUAL RAP . RNB . SOUL, YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THE ARTISTS ARE SINGING ABOUT AND SING ALONG....RIGHT?...WHILE NIGERIAN MUSIC, WOW WHERE DO I START FROM, HOLD UP! I AM NOT EVEN TRYING TO BE CONDESCENDING AT ALL BUT MOST OF THE TIME I CANT SING ALONG OR UNDERSTAND HALF OF WHAT THEY SAY.
OBVIOUSLY I LOVE THE WAY NIGERIAN ARTIST HAVE EMBRACED THEIR OWN CREATIVITY AND STYLE OF MUSIC. I MEAN THEY COMBINE IT WITH OUR TRADITIONAL LANGUAGES AND THERE IS NO DOUBT; YOU GET A SENSE OF BELONGING AND THE PRIDE OF BEING AFRICAN NIGERIAN.
LATELY MY BOO GOT SOME TRACKS FOR US TO LISTERN TO AS WE ARE TRYING TO EMBRACE A MORE NIGERIAN APPROACH BEFORE WE MOVE... HE GOT P SQUARE . WIZ KID . 9ICE . DBANJ . ICE PRINCE . M.I. .AND MORE. I THINK ONE OF MY FAV IS  "ICE PRINCE- OLEKU". WOW I FOUND MYSELF CLICKING ON THE REPEAT BUTTON, I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND SOME PARTS BUT IT MADE ME MOVE MY HIPS, I WANTED TO START JIGGING AND DANCING.
THEN I REALISED IT IS NOT JUST THE WORDINGS IN NIGERIAN MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU MOVE, THE HUMOUR, AFRO BEATS, DRUMS, FLUTE AND THAT SOUND THAT TICKLES THE TOES, TO SUM IT UP "I AM IMPRESSED! I MUST SAY....I ALSO LIKED M.I PUT YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIRRRR!  NICE......

THE BABY IS HERE HARPER SEVEN BECKHAM!!!!!

I have been waiting for new about the birth of The Beckham's First Baby Girl and she just arrived on Sunday the 10th of July 2011, announced on Facebook by David Beckham. Awww David...As a big fan of the Spice girls and Victoria, I feel happy about the news and Victoria finally having a female child to compliment her boys. Imagine how Harper will have everything she ever wanted, have the best clothes and look like a barbie doll right beside her mum...Great Great Great things coming for Harper Seven Beckham, However, what is the reason behind the name? A source said that the name seven could be from the month of birth, the fact that she was born around 7am, seven also being a lucky spiritual number and Harper because of its 'lovely sound'

We, no I cant wait to see pictures of Harper Seven Beckham....STAY TUNED!

Relationship behaviour you should never put up with...

break-up
Relationship behaviour you should never put up with...

Arguments and disagreements are a healthy part of being together but certain relationship behaviour can highlight more serious issues that could even put you in danger. We identify the key warning signs that indicate it’s time to move on.

Aggression
Not all aggressive behaviour should be seen as a danger sign. It’s natural for someone to lose their temper occasionally, but a pattern of violent threats or even physical abuses towards you are the clearest warning you need to extricate yourself from the relationship. Kate Taylor, relationship expert at Match.com offers this tip on how to spot this type of behaviour before it’s too late, “Aggression shows a lack of control which might one day be directed towards you, perhaps violently. You often see this early on, directed towards animals, children or people felt to be ‘beneath’ the aggressor. If it’s directed at someone you know, it’s only a matter of time before it’s directed at you.”

Moodiness
A recent survey published by the American Psychological Association found that women were more attracted to moody men than those with a cheerful smile. This is a worrying revelation since excessive moodiness and grumpiness are an indicator that your partner is using selfish emotional mind games to manipulate you. Kate says, “People who don’t bother to moderate their moods – or even simply warn you about them – are putting their feelings way before yours. They feel self-centred, as if they deserve love no matter how they behave and you shouldn’t put up with it.”

Lack of respect
One of the most basic of expectations from any relationship is mutual respect for each other. While you may not share the same tastes or have the same opinion, your other half should always be respectful of you. Kate says, “If someone is disrespectful of your possessions, your time or your feelings, they are displaying their own feelings of superiority. Don’t tolerate it. Instead, call them on this behaviour calmly and quietly. If they persist, finish with them. You can spot this on the first few dates – if a new partner is rude or abrasive with waiting staff in a restaurant, for example, realise that one day they will behave exactly like that towards you.”

Dishonesty
Both men and women tell the occasional white lie - be it to protect the other person or save hurting their feelings - but if your partner seems to be caught in the perpetual pattern of deception, it’s time to flag up the issue. “Dishonesty destroys trust, which is the backbone of every healthy relationship. Even the smallest lies are destructive, creating doubt and anxiety.” explains Kate, “If you catch your partner out in a lie, immediately point it out to them and ask them why they felt they couldn’t tell the truth. If their answer fails to reassure you, leave.”

Control issues
If you feel as though your partner tries to have too much sway over how you spend your time, whom you see and what you do, there could be some control issues at play.  According to Kate this is usually a sign of insecurity, “A controlling person fears rejection so hugely, they will manipulate situations to get the outcome they want. This is behaviour usually learned in childhood, if parents were angry or inconsistent. Be aware though, not all such behaviour is ‘controlling’, some is simply caring. A partner asking you to call them when you arrive somewhere, for example, is just expressing concern, but a partner stopping you calling anyone when you’re together is being controlling.”

TO PLANKING OR NOT TO PLANK

If you have logged into any social network recently then you will know the meaning of the word PLANKING. OMG it is taking over the internet and everyone is trying it except me..(cant be bothered). I was at my mates house the other day, we were having a laugh, watching TV and sharing gossip. Then my friend's mate looked at her phone and said; people are really taking this "planking trend" too far. And I asked 'What is Planking?' and they both laughed and said you don't know what planking is? I was like; I don't have a clue, so my friend's mate passed the phone to me to see a picture of one of her other friend laying straight on top of a fridge!..O_O...I was shocked.... I asked; errrr what is the whole idea and deal with planking, why is she on top of the fridge...They both laughed and quickly went through their blackberry phones for more pictures. I was surprised at the press this new trend "planking" is getting. I saw about 10 pictures of different people planking from tables, fences, chairs etc I was told it started in America and now in Nigeria people are on it and putting up pictures of planking on Facebook Twitter MySpace and BBM.

Very Shocked at the thought of how far people are willing to plank to show off how daring they can be, I went on to research more on it like looking up pictures of people going with the movement lool "planking movement" and believe me people are taking it so serious its ridiculous..(just my opinion)... You have got Brezzy and all your rappers doing it as well...
