1. What brings out your Dark Phoenix. (superhuman abilities) and wha are they?

Whenever I see someone being mistreated or some type of injustice happening in front of me, I always want to jump in and fight for the victim. I’ve been this way since I was a kid on the playground fighting everyone else’s battles for them.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

I think it feels like gratitude! Just being thankful that you’re seen!

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

1. What brings out your Dark Phoenix. (superhuman abilities) and what are they?

When it’s go time! I thrive when it’s time to show up and show out. Whether its performing live, on tv, on film, during photo shoots, teaching, or public speaking, I tap into “go mode” and give my all for the audience to receive. At the end of the day, I am human, but I am also a performer and I believe all performers have somewhat of an alter ego that we have an on & off switch for. When my switch is on that’s when my Dark Phoenix comes out… and she’s a BEAST!

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

I’m all for women empowerment! We are so much stronger together than we are individually. I have truly been supported by women from all different walks of life and it is so amazing to see how we connect. I always do my best to reciprocate and support my ladies however I can!

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

Five things that help me feel empowered are: 1. Performing 2. Genuine love & support 3. Accomplishing something for the first time. 4. Taking risks & stepping out of my comfort zone. 5. Most importantly, loving myself and others, flaws & all!

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I always look to empower other women through supporting their dreams and endeavors. I help guide with relevant advice and positive reinforcement, while giving back and sharing knowledge from my own from life experiences.

1.What brings out your Dark Phoenix (superhuman abilities) and what are they?
When I push myself to do something I’ve never done before that challenges me is when I feel my “Dark Phoenix” is brought out. I am forced to push myself to reach new heights.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?
Women empowerment feels like women supporting other women and genuine friendship.

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered
Five things that help me feel empowered are: working out, performing, recording in the studio, being with my family and helping others.

4. How do you plan to empower other women?
I plan to empower other women by supporting them, lifting them up and encouraging them to be the best version of themselves.

1.What brings out your Dark Phoenix (superhuman abilities) and what are they? 

When I’m under pressure or when I’m being my most creative self. My superhuman abilities are being able to think quickly on my feet and making something out of nothing.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

Women empowerment feels like sisterhood. It feels like honestly, trust, and respect for other women. It looks like every situation when you just needed to get advice or support and another woman was there to help. That feeling of protection is like none other.

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

1.Sharing experiences with other like minded women 2.Learning something new 3.Making a woman look and feel her best 4. Giving love and encouragement to the youth 5. Helping someone in need

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I do it daily by helping guide women into more healthy hair care practices and styling tips. Great hair gives ultimate confidence. Also focusing more on self love and the beauty of what we are born with is a message that I can’t say enough. I plan to continue to share my love for textured hair and all its incredible facets.

1. What brings out your Dark Phoenix? (superhuman abilities) and what are they?

My superhuman abilities are healing with Art! I am Art! creating Art with and on other people has been my passion and also has been my way of surviving which also became my career path. what brings it out of me is my passion for different cultures, nature, animals, traveling, space, things that are healing to us when we view it from a bigger picture. we can compose and express ourselves through these elements and therefore help create healing images in our forms that we can carry with us.

2. What does women empowerment feel/look like to you?

Women empowerment to me is anything that inspires mental freedom as sexual freedom, economical freedom and independence and freedom to love and control your own body and appearance. Uplifting women without having to put another woman down!

3. 5 things that help you feel empowered.

1. I feel empowered listening to other women who don’t give a f*ck! It is very refreshing because you actually realize how simple it is, how we know we allow our minds to get blocked with so much bullshit just because we want to fit into a cute society frame whatever that is, and we end up living in invisible cages.

2. being a woman in 2019 is also very empowering I feel like women now are finally starting to really understand each other‘s value and support each other and therefore I also feel like men are starting to respect women more as well even though we have a long way to go still.

3. I feel very empowered when people value my opinions in corporate/business meetings and when people really respect and listen to me when I do business no matter what type of culture they come from.

4. I feel empowered when a man cares about my sexual pleasures

5. I feel empowered being around other women when we get to really just open up and laugh about things that we feel that we have in common

4. How do you plan to empower other women?

I have always been the type of person who practices never preaches! so what I usually do is empower through my actions of spreading as much positivity in general because this world needs love, needs healing, needs kindness, needs compassion, needs to rid itself of ego. The world is mother nature, the world is healing female energy. there are so many negative energies that I don’t want to even associate myself with in order to inspire to live a life far away from destructiveness so that we can fully evolve and grow into our true self and be who we authentically were born to be… to live a limitless life!

50 Cent & Mayweather End Feud: Who Else Should Reconcile?

With May 2nd, approaching we can finally countdown to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao boxing match at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. People have arranged to fly into Vegas from all over, many have spent between $4,600 and $17,850 on tickets, and 50 cent and Mayweather are even friends again. Yup. The anticipation is real.

After publicly offending one another — 50 saying Mayweather couldn’t read and Mayweather calling 50 irrelevant the two have linked up and killed the noise. 50 took to Instagram to post a picture of him down in Vegas long side Mayweather, referring to him as his brother.
50 & mw
7 days away from the fight and about a year of a funny but “family feud” the drama has died down. Thank god. Irrelevance jokes, women beating allegations, the cat in the hat tests have finally passed…
Looking at the game there’s been a few feuds that we’d love to see reconciled. Check them out after the jump!
