Your image is holding you back         You all have to excuse me. I had to handle some business but I’m back!          I would like to talk about my community and our image! Now, we all know that we are unfairly portrayed on TV. According to marketers, we appeal to almost every negative connotation out there. We are some chicken...

“A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE” Now, I’m not one to give anyone advice when it comes to grammar. You will notice, in this blog and other previous entries that I struggle with my grammar and punctuation just as much as the next. The one thing that really “grinds my gears” is improper grammar and punctuation on purpose! I can’t stand to see...

Giving Credit where Credit is due! I figured since its Black History Month (February), I would highlight someone that has done some great things for Black Entertainment. In this case, it is not so great, but this person’s efforts will not go unnoticed. He hasn’t done anything “ground breaking” and his contributions that I will highlight will...

“Good Move, Mello!”

Ok, so we all know about Karrine Steffans (Super Head) and her book that made the New York Times Best Sellers list. We also know that many mistresses/sideline girlfriends are coming from everywhere and putting their business “out in the street.” It is the new gig for H*’s. Sleep with a celebrity and make some money while telling about your experience (I touched this topic in a previous blog). Recently, Carmelo Anthony’s name has been amongst these celebrity scandals.

          There is a groupie, Sheneka Adams, who is writing a book about her encounters with a bunch of famous men, including married NBA player Carmelo Anthony. Coincidentally, this book is being brought to everyone’s attentions right around the same time that Carmelo’s name is making the headlines for trade rumors to either New York or Los Angeles (keep in mind, these are just rumors). (It is all unfortunate, considering the fact that Carmelo just lost his sister. She was only 36 and the mother of 4… very tragic!)

          Apparently, Mello has made it known that he wants to be traded to New York. We all know about the media circus that takes place in NY. So, is Carmelo making a mistake by bringing his baggage to NY for the world to see?

          The answer is NO! If anything, its good PR (public relations). When you think of the NBA, Melo is probably the player that you least think about. He is a great player that is over-shadowed by the likes of Lebron, Kobe, and Dwight Howard and so on…So believe it, or not, all the negative media attention he could potentially get in either cities (LA or NY) will help his career. He’ll make all major headlines since his wedding was so over the top that it literally had its own show on VH1.

          It will hurt him in the beginning but after a couple “I’m sorry” statements during press conferences, “Melo loves the kids” charity events, and a plethora of “I’m a family man now” pictures sent to the media; The public will love and adore him. It’ll even have an impact on his game. We all know superstars do not necessarily have to be the “best” as long as they do well; Their name will keep coming up. Those large media markets will eat this up and he will be the next Magic Johnson, Chris Brown, Alicia Keys (home-wrecker), Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, etc…

          The public is very forgiving of celebrity screw-ups. People will chalk it up like “hey, he’s a man just like everybody else. He can make mistakes”. Even though, putting a ring on his wife, La La, finger wasn’t a mistake. She deserves better. But hey… we all deserve a 2nd chance, right?
