[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/LnIX69LKx1A service=youtube width=854 height=480 type=iframe]

Weirdo Workshop band Louis York is excited to release their new video “Hipsters”, which is featured on their new EP Masterpiece Theater: Act II . Also known as multi-Grammy nominated production and songwriting team Chuck Harmony & Claude Kelly (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson among others), the duo wrote and produced the single along with the whole EP. In creating “Hipsters,” the guys were very deliberate about the theme of the single, which addresses individuality, bullying, and self-acceptance.

“As a self-proclaimed ‘weirdo,’ we wanted to create a song that the fans could relate to as well as address a topic as serious as bullying,” states Kelly, who continues “As artists, I think it’s also part of our responsibility to educate the public.”

In addition, the duo’s previous video “Don’t Play,” which premiered via Essence.com was added to video stations across the country including MTV Live, BET Soul, Aspire TV and Music Choice.

In the cover story, Brandy speaks about her long-lived career, finding her purpose, what makes her happy, starring in the Broadway show CHICAGO, Whitney Houston and more.

Quotes from Brandy:

I don’t view myself as a celebrity. It’s all about the intention. It’s not about me. I thought that it was before. But, now I know that it is about other people. Who else could it be about?

I stepped into something that I was born to do and I didn’t know it. I walked on the stage and my entire life reawakened. It’s about making people feel good about themselves and helping people dream. The vain stuff, like the pictures I took for this magazine and being in shows, I love! But it is all just the polish. I’m not a celebrity. A star guides. There is a difference.

Pat says in her statement:

“She is in God’s hands now.”

According to TMZ, Brown family sources said they consulted with a top brain specialist last week in Chicago — who told them Bobbi had “no hope” of pulling out of the coma. The family discussed the doctor’s findings and made the decision to allow her to die in peace.

Right now, doctors and the family are not sure how long Bobbi Kristina will last.

We’re sadden by this information here at SFPL. Our prayers go out to Bobbi, close friends and family. This is truly heartbreaking.

May God be with her in this time of need.
