Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

[Do, You Mind Repeating That] Rihanna To Receive Honorary Award For "Inspiring Young People?"

May not be April Fools yet, but we have a hilarious joke ahead.

It seems, Rihanna will be receiving an honorary award due to "Inspiring Young People." Of course, I personally don't see this as an award fully deserving for Rihanna, as I'm sure others would differ. Many of the new generation, would probably see Rihanna as much of an artist, that inspires. I'm sure, if anything, many young girls have desired to be a singer, due to either Beyonce or Rihanna, so they've definitely made quite a decision.

Personally speaking.. I don't think Rihanna has any kind of credit to inspiring young people. I mean, what has Rihanna ever done for the youth? I feel, many use awards as a target to get particular celebrities or artist to come to their shows, such as Rihanna receving the "AMA Icon Award" two years ago. The next year, did anyone else hear about another artist winning the "Icon Award?" Like I said, Award Shows use this as targets of giving the particular artist to actually show up. I'm sure, Beyonce wouldn't be caught at a BET Award, unless she was winning her own specially named award.

Beyonce could release no material for two years, and still manage to be nominated, and on top of that, win. Same goes for Rihanna as well. Even with that, Rihanna nor Beyonce would show up. If it was an award, regarding legend or icon, I'm sure they would be all ears, for the event. I don't feel that an artist has to be old to win an award, but if an artist can suddenly leave the public light, and still have managed to make a trademark in the music industry, I personally feel as if they deserve the award. This award should go to someone who isn't likely in the prime of their career, but have still managed to build a trademark to their name. Anyone ever considered Usher? He's definitely not an artist, many are quick to say they were inspired by, but he's definitely done a lot of wonders in the music industry. I would love to see the award go to an artist such as Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston though. Not because they've died, but because I tend to hear many say they were inspired by them, and that goes for every artist. I've never heard one artist, mention their inspirations without including MJ or Nippy. I would still definitely consider the Usher idea, before making it totally official that Rihanna is their selection.
