Welp, That was fast. R. Kelly’s ‘Surviving Lies’ Page Disabled By Facebook | Screenshots Provided

After the the documentary series about R Kelly called “Surviving R-Kelly” was released, the singer attempted to clap back at his accusers. He told TMZ that the women that exposed his pedophilia behaviors were lying. R-Kelly said that he will be exposing them one by one on a website called “Surviving Lies”. However it didn’t take long for Facebook to take down the page once it went up because it violated their community standards. Many are relived that Facebook is doing what they are supposed to do.

“The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed,” a Facebook spokesperson told TMZ. “We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other’s private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware.”

It was probably shut down because many on Twitter said  they would report it the moment it went up. Looks a swarm of supporters of the women survivors showed up and wasn’t having it.

Meek Mill is Protesting Lace Front Wigs Y’all 👀

It sounds like Meek Mill is getting sick and tired of the fake hair. He took to Twitter a several hours ago to voice his disapproval.

He basically said what we’ve been preaching about for a while on our YouTube Channel. Wigs and weaves are no good. But we say that from a place of concern because we know that wigs and weaves can cause balding. We can’t tell you where Meek Mill is coming from with his statement though.

His exact quote was that “Lace Front Wigs are wackk.” And “I’m protesting them.”

Now don’t get us wrong, wigs and weaves can make great protective styles. But you have to take good care of your hair underneath it for that to be the case. And, those women who can’t see themselves leave home without their tracks, need to be honest with themselves. Their wigs aren’t a protective style but a cover up of a deeper issue of low self esteem.

Many people were not in agreement with him and were throwing all kinds of shade. One person said “Mhm ok… if you still had them dusty braids that looked like locs we would protest that to 🤦🏾‍♀️ anyway #Teamnatural , but ima still wear my wigs as a protective style 🤷🏾‍♀️ I said what I said 😴.” That’s right girl, #Teamnatural all the way!

R Kelly Claps Back At Accusers and Jada Pinkett Speaks Out Against Him!

R Kelly blows up social media again. Lifetime aired a documentary series called,”Surviving R. Kelly,” this past weekend. This documentary exposed more of the truth about his disgusting behaviors. After watching it, you understand that R Kelly is a sick person who preys on young underage girls.

In “Surviving R. Kelly”, you hear from stars like Wendy Williams and John Legend, and from those who were around R Kelly. And of course, the survivors, are finally able to share their stories. After this documentary aired many took to social media to express their reaction. And that includes several celebrities.

Jada Pinkett Smith voiced her disapproval about how R Kelly’s music sales has gone up since the release of the documentary. “I’m having a really difficult time understanding why,” Jada Smith said in a video on IG. “I think it’s important that I understand why. I really would like for you guys to help me understand what I’m missing.”

Jada Smith also said that she would continue the conversation on her “Red Table Talk” show on Wednesday. Here’s the clip of what she had to say:

A post shared by Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapinkettsmith) on

Already, R Kelly is clapping back against his accusers and critics. According to TMZ, he and his team is coming out with a website called surviving lies to “expose all of his accusers as liars”. He already launched the facebook page while the website is being built (we will not be linking to it).

Update: R Kelly’s Facebook Page “Surviving Lies” has been disabled by Facebook.

Some on social media are upset that it took for a documentary to come out against R Kelly for people to reach the conclusion that many already knew? However, none can argue that society dismissed these women in the past. Hopefully this documentary will help them get some relief and bring them closer to justice.

#MuteRKelly is the new hashtag floating around on social media. Those who are in an outrage are using this to show their support for the survivors and their disapproval of R Kelly.

What do you think? Did you see the documentary?

Toni Braxton and Birdman are Done!âš¡ Breaking

Unbreak our hearts Toni Braxton! Apparently Ms. Toni Braxton and her fiance Birdman have called it quits as far as their relationship goes. It seems as if both were on the same page when the couple took down each others photos on social media.

Toni Braxton and Birdman wanted to be married by late 2018 but could not agree on the date, location, or venue. Toni Braxton says that she and Birdman where constantly arguing and could not agree on anything that regarded the wedding. She added “He’s part of the problem. He’s very busy if not more busy than I am so I have not set a date for the wedding yet.”

Then, in the midst of all that stress, Toni Braxton manage to lose the engagement ring that Birdman bought her. She announced that her engagement ring was missing by saying “Hey everyone, @delta located my LV Train Case! Yay! Unfortunately, most of my jewelry items are missing…including MY ENGAGEMENT RING! Whoever BORROWED it…PLEEEASE return it!!!! I promise, no questions asked!”

It doesn’t seem that she was being responsible in that situation and now has to pay Delta airlines to do an investigation to find the ring. One of her followers stated that “Birdman didn’t get Toni any Xmas gift in fear she would lose it too”.

The Braxton sisters are beautiful so they have no problem with snagging men but fans want to see some staying power. It seems that Tony probably had a little something to do with the wedding being canceled and all the arguing wasn’t only Birdman’s fault. But, whoever or whatever it was it’s sad, because, they were cute together. And, you can tell that both of them are taking it hard and loved one another as they have both disappeared from social media.

There was only one post left up on Toni Braxton’s Page and she captioned it with:

“Starting a new chapter isn’t always an easy choice…
but ALWAYS choose to be chosen.
Cheers to a new year 🥂”

Gabe Solis, Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband Dies of Cancer at Age 43

Sad News for the Braxton’s right before Christmas. Gabe Solis, Trina Braxton’s ex-husband, passes away at the age of 43 after battling with Cancer. Gabe and his nephew pictured below.

A Fan’s Reaction to Gabe Solis’s Death

When I saw this come across my feed a few hours ago on Instagram, I was shocked! I am a fan of the Braxton’s and care about them as people. So I know this must be hard. I felt like crying myself even though I didn’t know the man personally. I think I feel empathy because a person I went to school with just died of cancer at a very young age.

Gabe Solis and Trina Braxton’s Rocky Marriage

I remember watching Gabe and Trina on Braxton Family Values and feeling like I was the only one secretly rooting for them. Tamar Braxton was not a fan of Gabe and was very outspoken about it. But then again, what spouse of the Braxton sisters did Tamar approve of? Then there were the instances of infidelity on both sides: Gabe’s online fiasco and Trina with the band member. The situations threatened to break their marriage especially Gabe’s infidelity that was so public. They split and then surprised everyone when they got back together. I supported their decision. However, they eventually ended up divorced.

One Last Attempt?

Afterwards, it intrigued me to see them show up on Iyanala’s Fix my life. The session was about fixing the relationship between Gabe and his step-son. But, I couldn’t help feeling that Trina was hoping to get some advice that would fix their failed marriage. Since then though, Trina has moved on to a new man but no one can say that Trina or Gabe didn’t give their marriage a good hard try. Then there was this, his death.

Here’s the Post that Trina put up on instagram.

Trina Braxton and Gabe Solis with kids. Gabe Solis dies

She captioned it with:

On December 20, 2018, a chapter permanently closed for my sons and I. For over 16 years, Gabe Solis was an essential part of our lives. Like all families, there are good and bad moments that are endured, but those moments, good or bad still made us who we are in the present. Unfortunately, someone leaked the story before we could make everyone aware of his passing, and I apologize to those friends and family members for finding out through social outlets. I also apologize directly to the Solis Family. I do humbly ask for your prayers for our families, but my greatest request is that when you are posting comments, remember Gabe’s passing is a loss for our family. He was a father to my boys, a son, brother, and friend to many and I would appreciate privacy and respect as we grieve his unexpected departure. @gabe_solis1234 I miss you, my dear friend.

One thing I can say is that’s messed up that someone leaked the story. Imagine finding out that your loved one passed away on social media. There may be a separate post just about this because I’m in my feelings. Someone needs to apologize for that nonsense.

This situation is indeed sad. We send our condolences and prayer’s to Trina Braxton, the kids, the Solis’s, and to all Gabe’s family and loved ones. May Gabe Solis rest in peace. Leave your prayers below.

Dating in High School is Pointless!

Hey guys I’m back!

A lot of things have happened since I took a break from writing articles. I have been able to invest more time in discovering who I am and learning from experiences. And one thing I’ve learned is that dating in high school is pointless.

black girl staring off into space. Dating in High School is Pointless

Being a junior in high school I am often pushed to do things that I would never do by people that I wouldn’t even call my friends. Often times I find myself in situations that I am very uncomfortable with and have to get out of. I recently got into my first relationship ever (which was really dumb) and had a very bad experience. It wasn’t bad because he was a bad person, it was bad because it distracted me from school and from my emotional development as a teenager.

Match Made in Heaven

First things first, the guy and I had nothing and common. He was a punk rock guy and I consider myself to be a sort of preppy girl. His past is questionable and I am being raised in a good and loving family. He was depressed and sometimes angry and I am a happy optimist. His grades weren’t the best and mine were good. Overall we both did not have the same values and upbringing which is an absolute must in a relationship. So, although he is a nice person those contrasts made a world of a difference.

couple fighting dating in high school is pointless

Listen to Your Parents?

The stress of whole thing was unbearable. Just the fact that as a teenager we are so young and have yet to discover what we want in life let alone relationships. The whole thing was not wise. My mom had been teaching me for years and years that relationships so young are not good and wont progress into anything. For some reason because she had told me that so much it was just going in one ear and out the other. It wasn’t until my step-dad told me that it was a very stupid decision did I realize that I needed to get out of the relationship as fast as I could.

All is Well that Ends Well

I also think that because it was coming close to that time of the month I was not able to make rational decisions. To be honest I wanted out of that relationship as soon as I got into it and surprisingly he felt the same. I guess we both knew it was stupid but just didn’t have the guts to tell the other person.

Dating in high school in my opinion has no benefit. You constantly have to worry about the other person while still juggling school. Not only is it a distracting but its a waste of time. And also as a teenager I still have parents that have authority over me that I have to listen to. Somehow I had to discover this through experience and now I know that I need to work on bettering on myself. Making sure that I know what direction I am going in life. And that’s exactly what I will be doing.

Clever Hair Curling Hack Saves You Hundreds of Dollars! What Natural Hair Gal Will Test This?!

Let’s face it: Getting ready in the morning is not only a hassle, it’s a pain. When you have to curl your hair? Forget being on time – or having a good hair do. This is because, despite all of the accessories out there, few do a good job. Why are you wasting all of that money on worthless products, when the result is always the same?

Today, a clever hair curling hack saves you hundreds of dollars and uses nothing more than common items you probably have in your house right now. It’s the water bottle hair curling hack. This hack is going viral because it is so easy to do and the results speak for themselves.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Huda Kattan (@hudabeauty) on

Rather than spend tons of money on Dyson’s product, try this hair curling hack instead. The only question is does it work on natural hair? Your hair would have to be stretched to try this but who’s going to be the first curly haired girl to test it out? I would love to see a natural do this especially since they are demoing the $500 Dyson curler wand. Which in my opinion is just a little bit too steep for my pockets.

The Steps to the Viral Hair Curling Hack

To shape your hair into natural, loose hanging curls, get a plastic water bottle and a blow dryer. You should cut one end of the water bottle off so that you can put your hair down into the bottle. You should also make an incision halfway down the bottle in order to put your hair dryer there. When you turn on the blow dryer, this will cause the hair to spin around rapidly, giving it the nice, natural curls that the Dyson product creates.

 

Endorsed by beauty blogger Huda Kattan, this method is a cost-effective and time-saving way of getting those awesome, loose beach curls that people love. And you save over $500 bucks when you do it this way. At a price of about $530, the Dyson curler is going to set you back a lot. A water bottle? About $1.59.

For her part, Huda Kattan was really impressed with the results and her audience agreed, many of them promising to try it out when they had the opportunity. One thing that Huda did warn about, however, was the build up of heat inside of the bottle can burn you if you’re not careful. She recommends wearing some kind of glove to protect against burns. Further, some people have pointed out that the plastic can melt after too much exposure to heat so you might have to replace your water bottle after a few uses.

A post shared by Olivia Smalley OMG Artistry (@omgartistry) on

But the results speak for themselves: Long, luscious curls, all without any real effort on the part of the stylist.

If you love natural looking hair styles and can’t imagine buying another product to achieve something that is supposed to happen anyway, then this hair curling hack is for you.

The water bottle hair curling hack going viral is not only a time saver, but actually works as well.

If you’re looking to save hundreds of dollars and have perfectly curled hair every time, all you need are some empty water bottles, scissors, and a hair dryer. Give it a shot and let us know about your results in the comments.

Length Check, Giveaway Winners, the Tea on Where We’ve Been, and More!

Where Has Chic LadyT Been?!

I know we went missing, so I thought I’d finally make a video on what happened. Chic Lady T put an event on in October and had to turn around and get ready for a Young Black Leadership Summit-YBLS right after. This was further complicated when I and the other attendees received an invitation to the white house from the president. So we were swamped with getting ready for all these things.

In the next series of videos, I will be spilling the tea on the Young Black Leadership Summit, Turning Point USA, and YouTuber Candace Owens. This channel will probably move in the direction of tea sipping on mainstream stories about blacks. TBH, I am reluctant to give any air time to the YBLS and the peoples involved because to me these political people are weirdos. And any attention, even negative attention, is good attention. But as I was personally there I will be putting in my two cents. Other than that I could care less. I am not interested in politics. I am straight up disgusted.

Change of Direction for Chic LadyT?

This video will also be speaking on ideas for the direction of this channel. We care about the black community so Chic LadyT would like to focus on our issues and black empowerment. That’s in addition to gossip and trending headlines. There would still be hair videos but they won’t be the main focus.

As for my hair, I do a quick length check in this video. After making this video, I trimmed off inches so it can be healthy. I want to cut it all off but I’m not that brave yet. We’ll see.

Congratulations to the giveaway winners! Please inbox us.

Serena Williams’ Vegan Clothing Line Celebrates Curves While Being Friendly for the Environment! Yasss

We Are So Here For the Serena Williams’ Vegan Clothing Line Y’all!

An international icon for female empowerment, as well as a sporting prowess, Serena Williams wow’s us yet again. Though you may know her for her amazing skills at tennis, it might surprise you to learn, that Serena Williams is also quite an entrepreneur. In fact, on Instagram, she showcased her new clothing line. That is the Serena Williams’ vegan clothing line.

That’s right: Serena Williams is pioneering a new mode of fashion tailored for the future. That’s on top of her being an international sports star role model for women across the world. Check out Serena Williams clothing line, 2018’s hottest new vegan clothing line.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Serena (@serena) on

Serena Williams’ vegan clothing line is being called “Serena” in a nod to its maker’s name. And though it’s a brand new line, it already has some high-powered names touting its benefits. Karlie Kloss, fellow female empowerment role model and entrepreneur, is already a big fan of the line according to Live Kindly.

Serena Williams’ Vegan Clothing Line Is For the Ladies ‘Who Do It All’

Serena Williams Outfits Trending

Besides being all business, this athlete knows how to have fun and get our attention with her outfits. Serena Williams ‘cat suit’ made headlines of late with judges ruling it a no-go for the tennis courts. Then she returned in a tutu in her match against Poland’s Magda Linette during the US Open on last Monday. That impressed many of us sistas of color. She sent a powerful message not to mess with her and other women with curves! Go Serena!

A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on

Whether the move was un-intentional or a marketing stunt, no one can argue that it’s got social media buzzing about her clothing. And, we decided to add to that buzz by talking about the new Serena Williams’ Clothing Line 2018. I mean it’s vegan! How cool is that?

Supporting Women with Curves  All While Being Environmentally Friendly

Serena Williams’ vegan clothing line is also about personal identity and expression. She Designed it with a minimal impact to the environment in mind. The gifted star hopes that women find the clothing not only stylish and eco-conscious but more. Her desire is that the designs speak to their individuality and shed some light on their personality. Towards that end, the line will have an accessible pricing structure. Garments will range from $35 to $250 according to one website.

A quote from Serena regarding her Serena Williams’ clothing line 2018, stresses this aspect of the company:

“The customer is a girl or a woman who believes in herself, or wants to believe in herself; maybe she’s feeling unconfident that day…And someone that is unapologetically themselves, and that maybe they stand out; maybe they stand out because they are strong or they’re beautiful or they want to not be the norm. Our woman is someone who looks at fashion as a compass to show who they are, to show what they are.”

Serena Williams’ Vegan Clothing Line?

It might come as a surprise to some of us that Serena Williams designed a clothing line. But those who have known Serena for some time are not surprised by the move. They recall the athlete’s abiding love for fashion and design.

Serena Williams is uniquely equipped to push forward a vegan, environmentally-friendly option for women’s clothing. She is a former student of fashion herself. And this isn’t the first time she’s become involved with vegan companies.

She invested in vegan food company Daily Harvest. She talks about how she has become especially aware of eating healthy food ever since the birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia. According to Serena, they keep Alexis to a very healthy diet regimen.

A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on

“I literally have my chef total vegan. Not french-fry eating vegan. Totally eating completely healthy,” she said in an interview.

Williams hopes her new clothing line will help inspire women to live their best lives. And to pursue a path that is as unique and idiosyncratic as their individual personalities and dreams. What a neat mission.
