Beyonce’s music video for her new song “7/11” is for an audience that likes the minimalistic approach. The video features simple choreography accompanied with barely any makeup and hair styling, which allows the viewer to focus more on the music and less on the glam. But there is more!

Gabriel Aubry’s decision to chemically process Nahla’s hair at the tender age of 4 years old is not only damaging to her hair, but it is also damaging to her self esteem. Aubry’s selfish choice to change Nahla’s natural hair texture, and hair color sends a negative message to his daughter that her hair is not beautiful to her father.
Nahla will internalize how she sees herself based on her father’s actions, because young girls idolize their fathers. Nahla is at an impressionable age and she is developing her personality. She is susceptible to fostering stigmas and characteristics of prejudice. Aubry’s actions can encourage Nahla to develop a negative self image.In my opinion, Aubry’s actions show a lack of sensitivity, and awareness as a parent. I commend Berry for trying to protect her daughter from early self esteem issues that can be triggered by Aubry’s actions. However, I am not sure if suing Aubry is the best defense in order to protect her daughter.

The biopic “Whitney” is directed by acclaimed actress Angela Bassett and stars America’s next top model contestant Yaya Dacosta as Whitney Houston. The film will document the life of legendary singer Whitney Houston.
Angela Basset and Whitney Houston starred together in the film Waiting to Exhale in 1995, and while filming together Whitney and Angela maintained a friendship on and off camera. Angela’s friendship with Whitney enabled her to give Yaya Dacosta personalized direction while portraying Whitney for the film.
Based on the film’s trailer and Yaya Dacosta’s seemingly accurate portrayal of Whitney for the film I proclaim this to be “Must See Tv!”
Watch the trailer for “Whitney” and let me know what you think of it. Based on the trailer will you watch the film?
