Before John Mayer, before Robin Thicke, there was James Taylor.  This multiple Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and guitarist came of age in the 1970s and is known for his introspective songs and mellow sound.  I’ve been a fan of Taylor’s since my freshman year of college when I would play his music to relax me and clear my mind before tests.  James Taylor is the truth, and if you find yourself unable to sleep, I encourage you to find some of his music, put it on repeat, and let the stress slip away.

On Monday night , I covered the taping of the BET “Yes We Will” Inaugural Ball.  It was hosted by Nick Cannon and had appearances by Common, Jazmine Sullivan, and Akon, with appearances by my T.I., Young Jeezy, Kerry Washington, Jurnee Smollett, and Tatyana Ali.  It airs Tuesday night at 8 p.m. Check out the video above and the photos below for an exclusive sneak peak of the ball.  

And yes, Kerry Washington really is that bad in person.

Monday evening, I got this text from a friend:

“Hey, I was talking to a friend of a friend about you and she wants to meet you…”

So, I googled her.  I read about her accomplishments; I checked out her work; I viewed some images.  

I want to meet her too.

TO BE CONTINUED…(maybe)

The Verdict

So I went to go see Seven Pounds starring Will Smith last night, and I’d give it a 3 out of 5.  Smith plays a depressed IRS agent who seeks redemption for a past mistake by performing good deeds for seven strangers.  This role is a huge departure from most of his past roles, and although it takes a while to really take off, Seven Pounds is definitely worth checking out.  I recommend it.

I’m Intrigued…

I don’t know what to expect from Will Smith’s new movie Seven Pounds, which hits theaters tomorrow.  The trailer tells me nothing about whether this will fit my tastes, and the vague description that I found—“An IRS agent with a fateful secret embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers”—doesn’t tip me off either.  I don’t know ish about this film.

And that’s exactly why I’ll be checking it out tomorrow. My curiosity has been peaked, and I’m forced to use my imagination. Besides, when has Will Smith ever produced a really bad film? 

I’ll let you know what I discover. In the meantime, check out the scene above.
