In the video Cardi gets married in a beautiful white dress with layered pearl necklaces around her neck with long platinum gray hair. I definitely got Madonna’s Like a Virgin 80’s vibes with Cardi’s bride look. Later in the video her husband dies and she has his funeral in the same church they got married in. It is displayed that her love turned to hate because of the behaviors of her unfaithful husband. I enjoyed the creativity of the video, again it reminds me of something Madonna would have done. Check out the video below and tell me what you think.

MuaH!

OPC Interviews the “Blinged Out Bombshell” Rashidah Ali

rashidah
OPC: What made you find interest in the entertainment business? And what has your journey been like?

R: I wouldn’t say I had any initial interest in working in the entertainment industry. I first started out working [at a company] with a friend of mine. Her father was the human resource director there. One of the women that worked there was going to be going on maternity leave, so I was initially supposed to just fill in for a few months. Then it turned into a full time position and then I got a promotion. It was a [wrap] from [that point on] but the fashion industry was something different. I think I decided I wanted to work in that industry when I first heard the quote “when you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life”. So I kind of thought about what would be the one thing that will never get old and I will never get bored with. [Of course the answer was] shoes.

OPC: How does it feel to say that you have been the owner of multiple businesses?

R: It feels overwhelming but it feels that there will be great rewards in the end and I learn a lot every day. I love it, I love being an entrepreneur. I love that I don’t necessarily have to be directed by anyone anymore. I can make my own visions come to light. It’s a lot of work but I still love it.

OPC: When someone thinks of your new shoe line Encore; where did the idea come from? And what can they expect?

R: I would say my vision with it was the everyday working woman and to make sure that there were styles that were trendy and comfortable. As opposed to woman that are just like me, fashion savvy but also who may not be able to afford a thousand dollar pair of shoes or this three hundred dollar pair of shoes but still don’t want to compromise there look because their on a budget . Its cost conscious and budget friendly but it’s still fair.

OPC: So I heard you are now the CEO of 5 Approved, a Promotion and artist development Company. Is there anything we can look forward to?

R: Yes, we have an annual artist showcase that we do. So in the beginning of the spring we will have a big artist showcase that will have a celebrity host whether its [someone] like Miguel or Mario. We aren’t very sure who we’re going to go with this year buts always a big turnout so you can look forward to that. It’s for up and coming artist.

OPC: Which celebrities have used your promotion company’s services recently?

R: All that’s recent Cherry Martinez and Shaheed Moore he plays for the Broncos [as a safety].

OPC: What do you have to say to all the people that feel that Love and Hip Hop is a negative show?

R: I don’t really concern myself so much with trying to revamp peoples thought process. I think for us it’s an opportunity and a platform to promote ourselves and our businesses. It’s like anything else, there’s good and bad with it. You could have a job, working a 9 to 5 you’re a corporate person, there’s good and bad that come with those positions. You have to make the best of it. Everyone just wants to be successful. That was my ultimate goal for the show. I don’t really care too much to read peoples thought process because there’s a lot of viewers so whether it’s negative or not people are definitely entertained and tuning in.

OPC: So I heard you recently got married?

R: No, I am engaged. [Planning for wedding to be in the summer]

OPC: Are we ever going to see who this mystery guy is?

R: (Laughs) I don’t know, I don’t know. Possibly, I don’t know.

Rah3
OPC: Can you describe yourself in three words?

R: Independent, outspoken and caring

Rah
OPC: What advice would you give to young adults trying to make it in the entertainment industry?

R: Definably educate themselves in whatever field they want to be in. Because you know what you’re doing and no one can really take that from you so research, research, research and go for it. I don’t think they should hold back, just do it.

OPC: Is there anything else your fans can look forward to in the near future?

R: Just more shoe business. I want to make a household name. I want Encore to be able to stand on its own.

OPC: What do you want your legacy to be?

R: I would like it to be that I was highly ambitious. I went against the odds and I proved people wrong.

P.S.

Doing this interview with Rashidah was really fun. She was an absolute sweetheart. I look forward to speaking with her again in the near future. 🙂

Boris Kodjoe & Derek Luke Discuss Gaining Weight In A Marriage And Baggage Claim

Last week, Boris Kodjoe and Derek Luke did an interview with Cocoa Fab TV’s C Nikky about their upcoming movie Baggage Claim and Gaining Weight in a marriage. Boris’s opinion on the topic of gaining weight saying that one must “Keep It Sexy” had people distraught.

Take a look at the interview below and tell me your thoughts. Would you accept your partners weight gain in a marriage?

Boris says.

“What if I gained 200 pounds? And then she’ll look at me like, really? And I couldn’t even blame her if she started looking around.  Because I took her off the market, so I have to deliver what the market could possibly deliver for her.  So, I gotta take that place. Right? So, I gotta fulfill those things that the market could’ve given her.  I’m the market now, so I got to keep it hot and she has to do the same for me.”

Boris co-star Derek Luke chimed in with his two cents, saying that for him, even if a woman gained weight, there should be something deeper in the commitment that keeps the relationship stable, not just the looks.

“That’s part of my character. Part of my character is about commitment.  You know what I’m saying?  So, even if you doing the humpty dumpty, it’s commitment, cause you know what? The dude could go humpty dumpty! He could go from six pack to one pack, you know what I’m saying? Because in marriage, your body changes.

“I think [Boris] is right, you should put in effort to keep it sexy, but I think if you have missed the effort to keep it sexy, I think that there should be something stronger than your effort to keep it sexy. It should be commitment. That’s why marriages are failing in America and across the world, because there’s no commitment.  Because commitment is the key to success.  You can go up and down.  It’s about where you land.  It’s about your commitment.  Cause sickness, weight, that’s in your confessions when you get married.”

What do you think of their opinions???

IMG_0795.JPG

I loved interviewing Rasheeda. She is too sweet…OnPointCeleb!

OPC: What made you decide to pursue a career in the music industry?

R: As a young girl I just loved music. I loved the stories. I love how they made you feel [at] certain times in your life. Being little and watching my mom turning music on and dance [going] from one move to another, I was like “I want to make people feel like that”.

OPC: Who influenced your decision to be a rapper?

R: It was just hip hop period. The whole look of it, the swag and the look it was just so dope and cool like in the old school before anything was watered down. It was just real stories talking about what’s going on in their hoods and making people dance and feel good. I was just like you know what that’s exactly what I want to do and what better way to do it than through rapping, rhyming, putting together a mixtape.

OPC: What are the qualities one must have to be a real MC?

R: Just that confidence…must have a certain amount of swag not trying too hard. Being comfortable with oneself and being original. That’s like the main [Key].

OPC: How did the group Da Kaperz come about? How long was the group together? And do you still communicate with the other members?

R: I just apart of [Da Kaperz] for about five years and I do still communicate with the Keya. I haven’t seen Kiki in a while, but when we see each other we say ‘wassup’ and catch up. And one of the other young ladies I was just with her about two weeks ago.

OPC: What did you learn from being in the group?

R: I just learned that you have to kind of evaluate you situation and learn that everyone’s not going to always agree. You got to split you money. (She begins laughing) Those were some of the things; I think the difference with that situation was that we were so young like pre-teen and teenagers. We were trying to grow within ourselves. I really learned a lot more stepping outside the situation but in I just think sometimes like outsiders can cause problems and everybody has to learn to differentiate those types of things. But for the most part that was some of the funniest parts of my career and my life being young and [working with] the girls I was friends with.

IMG_0797

OPC: Are you still apart of the duo Peach Candy with Kandi Burruss? And what’s your personal relationship with Kandi?

R: Me and Kandi still do music. We actually have a record together right now that is on my album called ‘Legs to the Moon’. We haven’t done another Peach Kandi project but we are always working together. So there’s still a little Peach Kandi action going on. (Laughing) [Kandi and I are best friend].

IMG_0798

OPC: Explain your growth from when you first started as a young rapper/artist to the woman/entertainer you are now?

R: Girl that’s a lot (Laughing) you know learning from experience and going through different things business wise and personally from being a mother, a wife, an independent artist to was signed to a major and learned a lot from the situation but learned that being independent allows you the flexibility to be you and make decisions and really buckle down on that on business so your able to be successful. You learn so so much. The main thing I learned though was learning to be comfortable with me and doing what I love doing.

OPC: What has been your favorite part of this journey?

R: From then all the way to now it’s performing. I don’t even know [how to describe it, that moment] when you don’t even have to rap your lyrics and everyone’s throwing them back at you.

IMG_0799

OPC: How did you end up being casted on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta?

R: My name was going around a lot. When it came to the whole love and hip hop thing I sat down with Mona. People were just like Rasheeda Rasheeda Rasheeda she’s a female rapper, she’s married in a relationship and it just [made sense]. When we got to talking she heard my story and knowing about me in the industry she was kind of like okay lets run it lets go.

IMG_0800

OPC: What was the best part of filming Love and Hip Hop Atlanta?

R: I can’t tell you, you have to stay tuned. But [honestly] what I enjoyed the most is being able to open up about my relationship with my husband and us experiencing this together.

OPC: How did you feel when you won Mix tape female artist in the 2009 and nominated by the BET Awards in 2010 as best female Hip Hop?

R: For me to have them recognize the grind from my ‘bubble gum’ record to everything I been going through proved that it didn’t go unnoticed, and they looked and said this chick deserves this. That was a great experience.

IMG_0801

OPC: You are known as the “Boss Chick”, how did that name come about?

R: You can kind of see it in the show though can’t you? (Laughing) Independent female who has been grinding, hustling, and going hard for top music. Just that woman who is trying to take control of her own goals, dreams, and destiny. Being that independent women, I do have a very strong foundation but at the same time I’m really really focused. I just try to insteal that in other women because we can easily get sidetracked and think we have to compromise. I just really wanted to push that out there.

OPC: What can your fans look forward to in the upcoming year?

R: Well my album “Boss Chick Music” is available on itunes now. Of course look out for ‘Marry Me’ music video which will be released very soon. We gave you a preview on the show. The ‘Legs to the Moon’ music video which features Kandi will also be released. A lot more music and a lot more Rasheeda on TV.

IMG_0802

OPC: What kind of legacy would you like to leave in the industry?

R: Rasheeda was the girl who made us feel good about ourselves. When I turned her music on I felt confident. I felt like I could concur the world. When I heard that Boss Chick music she made me feel like I was that chick and anything is possible. When they listen to my music, I want them to feel like their friends like home girls [that can relate to one another].
