Whitney Houston's Comeback!!!

I'm so proud of Whitney Houston!!! She's looking good, doing good and singing very well. Her songs on her new album are very inspirational. She went through so much that I am glad she pulled herself together. I was getting worried about her and hearing all those reports about her. I'm so glad she rose past that. During her interview with Oprah this year, she explained her past and she knew she needed to get out of it and she did. Her performance during the American Music Awards last night was phenomenal. It brought tears to my eyes and gave me goosebumps. She performed "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" from her I Look To You album. That song touched so many people in the audience because it gave people a glimpse of her struggle with the drug addiction and how she realized she was a stronger person than that. My favorite part in the song was the hook:


"I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break"

The song is just awesome and she did an excellent job performing. I'm so glad I did not miss it.
Also congratulations to her receiving the International Artist Award.

2012 - What are your thoughts?

2012 is supposed to be the new blockbuster film. I saw it this weekend and it was a very good movie. The effects were much more dramatic than the previous The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day by director Roland Emmerich. It made me lose my breathe a few times as well as other people in the theater. I call him the "Disaster Master." I felt he wanted people to leave the theater with that one question in their minds, "What if...?" I know that was on my mind as well as "What would I do?" The prophecy in which the film is based on has been told for so many years but now that that the time is approaching another question forms in our heads, "Do you believe?" Do you believe that the world will end on December 21, 2012? Will there be shifts? Will the Yellowstone super-volcano erupt? Will California fall into the Pacific? Will giant tsunamis engulf the world in water? We'll never really know when. Do you think when our creator is ready to come will he give us a specific date or time? These are tough feelings and tough emotions. Who's to tell us when the world will end? It's an unsolved mystery. Until the time comes, no one will know for sure. The movie will leave you wondering.


Another point made in the film is "Will you be saved if there is a way to survive?" According to the film, people who had billions of dollars here safe and average people like me and you will never know what's happening. Now that the movie made that point clear, I'm sure people are wondering "What will they do when the time comes?" I know I did. Another point it makes is "Will you be at peace with God or your higher power?" and if you are, "Will you fear death and take the sacrifice?" I know I'm afraid to die but if I do I am at peace with God. This movie will make you think about plenty of things. I feel that people should go out to see this film. It will make you wonder, no doubt about it.

Janet Jackson opened up to Robin Roberts about Michael

When Michael Jackson first died, my reaction was wondering how Janet was taking it. Then seeing her at the memorial service when Paris Katherine grabbed hold of her after her brief touching words, I knew she was trying to be strong for the family. It is a very tough time for her and the family. I was so proud of her when she was able to do an excellent and memorable performance opening at the MTV Video Music Awards. It touched my heart so much that I cried. I was also happy to see Janet Jackson open up for the first time since her brother's sudden death. I wanted to know how she was handling the situation, but I know it was devastating. Last month I did get the chance to hear LaToya's side. They were very close siblings. She mentioned how close they were and how he was an inspiration to her. She still finds it hard to go see the rockdoc film of Michael Jackson's final rehearsal days, This Is It, because it still makes her heart heavy. It is even hard for her to see the previews and posters advertising the film. I feel her pain because when I lost my father to congestive heart failure it is still hard to go to the church he preached in every Sunday. Just the memories that come into mind, no matter how long ago it was for me, will still bring tears to my eyes. The interview showed a side of Janet we haven't seen. She mentioned how she felt Michael's doctor, Dr. C Murray, was guilty for his death and how she did try to reach out to Michael before as intervention. Yet Michael shied away from the public and his family. This really has an affect on how she feels today. But Janet has always been known to be on Michael's side through his times of criticism, judgement and accusations.

I do pray that Janet will stay strong and always keep Michael in her heart until they meet again.

May God be with her and her family through this tough time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jackson family.

Here's a bit of their memories and photos of Janet

Halloween 2009

I had a very good Halloween weekend. This year I had to work again but I made the most of it. As a tribute to the late King of Pop, I decided to put an outfit together and be him. At first I felt it was kind of strange at first because I felt people would make so much fun of me. Then I said I was gonna do it and have fun. My sister went to WalMart and while she was out there, she found the outfit and accessories.
I wore the costume to work and so many people were amazed at what they saw. My co-workers enjoyed it as well as my customers that came in that day. I danced and did the Moonwalk for them. When I went outside, cars stopped and waved at me yelling 'MICHAEL!" I had so much fun. People were also taking my picture, too. It was the coolest feeling. Plus I realized how many people do like Michael and it made me feel good about being him.

This Is It

I still can't believe that the documentary Michael Jackson's This Is It is the rehearsals and final days of the late King of Pop. I saw it November 1st at SOPAC Theater. Kenny Ortega recorded Michael for his own personal reasons not intending on releasing them but I am so glad he did. Even though I was so glad to see Michael doing what Michael does best, but at the same time I was sad because it was his final performances. I really enjoyed the film and it had that concert feeling. People who were in the audience were clapping and singing along. During the song Man In The Mirror, people were waving their hands from side to side. My mother, my boyfriend, my sister and I were enjoying ourselves so much. I wish he could have had a chance to do at least one show because he worked so hard to put it together. I can't wait to see it again. I love you, Michael!!! Rest in Peace.

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

I went to see the movie Precious in New York City this weekend and I felt it was a very moving movie. I don't want to describe the movie but it will bring out so many emotions. It took me on an emotional roller coaster but it made me feel blessed that I didn't have to experience what she did. She was such and strong girl to overcome her obstacles and help herself press forward. Tyler Perry and Oprah brought the book Push to life and opened up so many eyes to what goes on in society. Everyone should go see it.

Why Am I A Fan?

Why am I a fan? How long have I been a fan? Oh my goodness, as long as I could remember. I remember my mom playing his songs in my home and listening to the records. I remember dancing and trying to moonwalk, which I have mastered. I fell in love with his music, personality and of course his gorgeous looks. I truly love the messages he spread through his music and videos. He touched my heart with his smile and cute personality. I love his dance moves, which some I always bring up at family functions and parties. His voice was that of an angel just like his heart. I am a fan of his creativity and imagination. His videos or shall I say mini his movies were groundbreaking and motivational for many artists coming out now. His styles were royal like they were fit for a king, which he most definitely is and will always be. I am a fan of the way he loved his family and how he respected his mother and sisters, which made him a real man and gentleman. Even how he loved his children like they were the world and he made sure he gave them the world. They are all in my prayers. I am a fan of how he wanted to make a change and how he helped millions of people he either met personally or through spirit. He truly touched me spirit and I would have loved to known him personally. Well I know this for a fact if anyone ask why I am a fan of Michael Jackson just read above times infinity cause words can't describe my love for him.

Michael Jackson - My Heart Poured Out

Ever since Michael Jackson passed away, you see a lot of people expressing their love for the late King of Pop. Which people were really there, which people are the ones who cared about his downs as well as his ups or are they the ones who loves him all of a sudden? As I was growing up, I was exposed to the Jackson family and their excellent music, whether it was Michael Jackson, Janet, the Jackson 5, etc. I just couldn't wait to see what new ideas they would come up with especially Michael. He was such an inspiring person, not only musically but he was also a great humanitarian. He loved nature, he loved helping people and he loved to see happiness throughout. This is why I always loved Michael.
There was a point in my life where I did, but not intentionally, forget about him. There was a time where I took him for granted. I also thought he was invincible. I thought he would be here forever. I thought he was alright. I thought he would always grace us with his presence. So you tend to put people like that on he back burner for a while cause you know it's going to be okay. He was hurt. He was lonely. He was a human being crying out for help and we all thought he was crying wolf. He's been through so much, from accusations to criticism, but he was invincible to us. Maybe it's because he always smiled or put on a hell of a show. Maybe it's because we never saw him cry. Well I'm am typing this with tears in my eyes because this gentle soul has slipped through our fingers. But I always loved him but I do feel bad about placing him on the top shelf of reach.
This situation was a wake up call to me in many ways. It lets me know not to take anything for granted. Not to take for granted your family, your job, your education, your health, the good times and especially yourself because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.

My heart, thought and prayers go to the Jackson family and rest in peace to the King of Pop.
To my family and friends, I love you!!
