Here I am, abdicating all responsibilty and enjoying this buzz of love, while my son doesn't know how to ask for breakfast and keeps shouting for Diddy to come save him. Spoiler alert. Diddy's not going to save you.
If you've watched Season Six of LogoTV's Rupaul's Drag Race, you know Laganja Estranja. She's the one responsible for that dance drop that made your jaw drop the first time you saw it, and every time thereafter.
Singers Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus had a public spat at the 2015 VMAs, hosted by Miley. During the live broadcast on Sunday, Nicki called Miley a "bitch" for talking about her in the press
Think of the people behind the scenes trying to push the VMAs along when Kanye West gave his 13-minute acceptance speech/monologue/candidacy announcement. Those folks were sweating, adjusting through numerous timelines that changed minute to minute.
Tammie's fearless self expression fueled her journey from her birthplace of Rockport-Fulton, Texas to countless stages and televisions, and is a perfect example of how artistic commitment really can pay off.
In that moment of Minaj speaking out, she was not only silencing Cyrus and a system that has far too often told her to bite her tongue, but also the media for constantly being on the white side -- as opposed to the right one, the equal one.
The once emerging country singer was an underdog in a genre that was male-dominated. Her sound and songs were unconventional. Her look pushed back against the big hair and heavy make-up of the musical Dixie queens before her. She was a girl with a guitar and big heart.

I can't help but be irritated by the general population's tendency to celebrate this mainstream feminist neophyte and ignore, or worse, lambaste, Nicki Minaj, who has proven herself a well-informed feminist and articulate representative for women of color and women in general.
From the sheer dress days of the VMAs to her recent directorial debut, the short film Dawn, Rose is an inspiration--and one who still manages to inspire a Tumblr generation of teens to dress just like Amy Blue in The Doom Generation.
A blue-eyed blonde pop star collided with a buxom Black rapper on Tuesday and in doing so, in tweeting at Nicki Minaj, Taylor unwittingly stumbled upon an aspect of feminism she might not have considered yet: a feeling of being marginalized because of your race as a woman.
As a high school student, I have often heard accusatory comments that so-and-so is only involved with social activism or a service project because "she wants to put it on her resume" or "he just wants to gain admission to college."
All over the internet Beyoncé is hailed for bringing FEMINISM to the masses, for delivering it to teens and anyone watching who might have considered it a bad word. If Beyoncé is a feminist, well, hell, then I am, too! Where do I sign up? But what are they signing up for?
It's impossible for her to represent every woman, but much of what she stands for - confidence, fearlessness, self-awareness - can still translate and provide the building blocks essential for growing a new generation of independent, free-thinking women.
Many of the hair styles took cues from the '40s, '50s and '60s, giving the MTV Music Video Awards at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, a distinct retro flare.
