EP77: Obama, Kanye, & Everything Else

Hey Good People! We hope that you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving with loved ones!

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming… 🙂

Since we saw you all last time, Shells has had some highs and lows this week. Meanwhile, Irene actually had a chill week.

Since we were getting ready for Thanksgiving during this recording…we hopped right into our water cooler chatter! We’re talking about

  • Martha & Snoop Potluck Dinner Party on VH1. It is just as awkward as you’d expect…but oddly entertaining and informative.
  • President Obama awarded his last Presidential Medals of Freedom. There were 21 recipients this year, including Michael Jordan, Cicely Tyson, Bill & Melinda Gates, and our girl Ellen DeGeneres.
  • And speaking of President Obama, the BET Presents honoring the Obamas was the blackest night in the White House and it was wonderful to see this historic, beautiful, and powerful couple celebrated and seranaded.
  • Post-election SNL with Dave Chapelle and A Tribe Called Quest was EVERYTHING!! It’s good to see Dave back on stage and clearly, his hiatus hasn’t hurt his gift. And the Tribe will always be one of Hiphop’s jewels.
  • We have to say a word about the ridiculousness that is the “boycotting” of Hamilton because of the very real and calculated statement made to VP-Elect Mike Pence during a recent show.
  • And then, there is everything that Kanye has done over the last 2 weeks. Honestly, this is a softer, kinder response to Kanye than anticipated…but we recognize that mental health is a very serious and very real challenge… especially in the black community. With that said, we send our best wishes to Kanye and his family as he gets treated.

Finally, this week’s eye spy inspiration is about tying up all the loose ends of 2016 before we get caught up in the new year resolutions for 2017. Set yourself up for next year’s success by spending the rest of this year getting complete.

That’s all for now, we’ll be back next week with more!

    🚨New Episode Alert: "Level Up w/ @monascottyoung" 🚨 #GiggleGang!! THE Mona Scott Young is on the show this week!!! Yes, Mona. Scott. Young. The juggernaut behind VH1’s smash series, @loveandhiphop!
    Before I got into all of Mona’s business, we chilled around the "water cooler" to discuss the greatness that is @Serenawilliams, @Beyonce and @Balmain giving back to #HBCU’s, the traitor that is #Trump, and #StevieJ and #Faith’s real love and hiphop story.
    Then Mona takes us down memory lane by sharing her story of how she got into the entertainment industry, the glory years of Violator and Def Jam records, how she met and started managing @missymisdemeanorelliott, the creation of #LHH, and her latest venture- the release of her new book, #BlurredLines.
    And yes, @ciara's new track is in my Beats this week. Gotta #LevelUp!

    FSG is grinding!! I interviewed @iamdevale in the middle of #BourbonStreet during #EssenceFestival2018 weekend. The stars were aligned that night and I'm so grateful. Thank you Devale for speaking with me on a crowded and litty street in #NewOrleans. S/o to @khadeeniam and @stephienicks0804 for just chattin' it up in the background. 😂

    Y'all wanna hear the rest of the interview? Check out this week's episode of @fsgpodcast at FSGPodcast.com, iTunes, Stitcher, Google Home, and wherever you listen to podcasts!
