Rihanna: Fat or Phat

Social Media shaming is upon us yet again. Recently, Rihanna was called "Fat" by a blogger.

To take it a step further, the pictures from Carnival 2017 were released and some fans noticed a photoshop FAIL! Let's talk about it.

Now, let's keep it real. We all see the Two Thumbs or Thumbnail, depending on how you call it. However, we don't think Rihanna was photoshopping her weight. Not only is there no reason to hide her body, but who photoshops Carnival pics? Not Ri Ri!

After you get into the alleged photoshop pic, get into one that isn't in question.

Is there anything wrong with this body????? Not at All…….

It's sad that media is so pressed for a story they have to attack Bad Gal Ri Ri……..

Sound off Bookers and tell us what you think.

Movie Review “Girls Trip”

We finally had the opportunity to experience “Girls Trip” and it was PHENOMENAL. 

Best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild side by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

We walked into the film expecting to laugh through the entire movie and have an entertaining experience. However, upon completion of the film, you realize that there is a story amongst the humor and even deeper, a form of self realization within the story. 

Jada Pinkett Smith

We all know Girls Trip is based on 4 girlfriends taking a trip to the Essence Festival in the hopes of reconnecting and fixing their strained relationship. During this trip, you begin to learn each member of the group and you subconsciously start to place your friends into their roles. 

For those who haven’t seen it, we strongly suggest you do, however, we won’t give it all away, during the comedy there are some hurdles that each character experiences. These hurdles begin to cause you to realize which girl you relate the most to. Furthermore, you begin to ask yourself, “what would I do?”

From the Nights out on the town, to the intimate conversations in bed, this film has something for everyone. Male and Female.

Now! Let’s get into the film as a whole:

Story- 9/10

Fashion- 10/10

Eye candy- 10/10

Laughter- 10/10

Relateability- 10/10

Acting- 10/10

Overall Score-10/10
