What Happened Miss Simone?

As an admirer and fan of Miss Nina Simone, I cannot help but wonder what life was for people around her. She stood up for what she believed in, sometimes in the most unconventional way. She spoke her truth whether people liked it or not. She was real and raw
As quoted from her daughter Lisa Simone: “..people think Nina Simone’s persona appeared only when she performed, Nina Simone was always Nina Simone”, and that was the problem. This activist stood up for racism, injustice towards black people, and sang about the horrors in life. Some of these horrors, ironically continue to happen today. Check out the newest trailer of “What Happened Miss Simone”, premiering on Netflix Friday, June 26, 2015. It depicts her life during those tumultuous times, and life for those around her.

In honour of Nina Simone, Afrodelik has created a tshirt depicting the power that she resonates, and the true beauty of her honesty. Purchase yours here Available in MEN, WOMEN and KIDS style.

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Grace Jones

She opened my eyes and ears to something so unique and KOOL!
Grace Jones, a woman that lives her everything…all of she..genuine and true..in a HUGE way. It is Beautiful and so is she

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Ike and Tina Turner

I feel mix emotion when I watch this performance, but I know Tina Turner wouldn’t want me to go back to the past in that way…so let me just say “Nutbush City Limits” is a crazy tune..one of my favourites. Tina kills it, the dancers are crazy, and the band is on point
In Toronto in 2008, I had the pleasure in seeing Miss Tina Turner perform at the age of 69, at the Air Canada Centre. It was one of the most unforgettable, amazing, inspiring and fantastic concerts I’ve ever seen..oh and she IS a sexy woman.

Respect to Beyonce, but let’s not forget before Beyonce, there was TINA TURNER
This practicing buddhist is a definite shero of mine

Alright Y’All…first of all I am huge fan of Snoop’s music. I love the way he raps to me so smoothly and his jams are always so funky and tight. “Peaches N Cream” does not disappoint. Produced by Pharrell, it has the groove of the 70’s, the smoothness of Snoop and the deep funkiness of the Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson. A true Delight
