pissed that Black Enterprise

pissed that Black Enterprise is slapping "celebs" on their covers. I remember back in the day when they actually had hard working, "get to know these CEOs" who clibmed up that corporate ladder tooth and nail to have their shine on BEs covers, but then again it's all about that Money.

1. B.E.'s Hot List does

1. B.E.'s Hot List does include athletes, politicians, scientists, Wall Street execs, writers, etc. We just happened to feature entertainers and athletes on the covers (something we do only once or twice a year). 2. The Hot List consists of black achievers UNDER 40. Everyone you've named, including Obama, is well past their 39th birthday.

okay so... is it just me or

okay so... is it just me or does the new C.Breezy single sounds too Beyonce "Irreplacable"?? Can't say that I'm a fan but I'll be damned if they don't play that video a million times until it grows mold on me! Oh and Rhi Rhi..Now dats a BAD B*TCH. I'm over my forehead hataration. She's got a body to die for and I like her music. Imma give her what's due. Do yo thang MA!

In response to the "White

In response to the "White Enterprise" comment, Black Enterprise Magazine was founded at a time where positive and inspirational examples of black business leaders in the media were non-existent. Pick-up a copy of the publication and read it before you offer an ignorant judgment of the title alone. You will find a shining example of a community which, in 2007, still faces bigotry by the likes of yourself.

Miss Rihanna is absolutely B

Miss Rihanna is absolutely B E A UTIFUL... Shame on anyone who has anything negative to say about her, because she's doin her thing and she's doing it well.

1. uhmmmm, did anyone see

1. uhmmmm, did anyone see idle wild? Paula Patton's scenes with andre 3000 were way more than that photo shoot - she had her tata's out for the world to see, so uh I don't think she is tripping. 2. for those who are complaining about BE having entertainers on the covers, maybe you should get a subscription, because every other cover/issue is about black people who are getting theirs! It's a great magazine

i think the rihanna robin

i think the rihanna robin pics are cute, but i dont agree with how rihanna representing herself at the real young age of 19. she doesnt come across as a teenager. but i guess thats her choice.
elmo's picture

Yes, he has a wife but I'm

Yes, he has a wife but I'm sure she doesn't mind but I think the shoot should have been more tasteful. I wish Rihanna would be clothed and not just another sex-toy. I think shes beautiful but I don't respect her look (along with most female singers these days). P.s. I can't stand Chris B. & I really don't see the attraction but everyone else, on the cover, is the buisness.

What is the difference

What is the difference between the pics of Robin and RihRih and Will Smith kissing Eva Mendes in a movie? It's not real yall dang...it's not from his personal digital camera..lol.

Chris did a great job in the

Chris did a great job in the video, it was a nice change from the crumping ect. Liked the Outkast song, I'm glad they're coming back.

~ With you" is one of my

~ With you" is one of my favorite songs on the album, love the vid though. I am ready to see some black chicks in Chris'videos, but hey, he doesn't pick the girls...he should start. That's not a real tat on his neck, this vid was shot a while ago and now that tat is nowhere to be seen. There is one behind his ear though. But the one shown is not real, look at the "This Christmas" vid. They were shot within the same time frame. ~Good look for BE! ~Make-up is Rihanna's bestfriend, honestly.

I would suggest that people

I would suggest that people stop addressing bane-that's what people like he/she want. Trying to come on a black blog to get people all up in arms about their ignorant and irrelevant comments. Anyways, I think the Robin and Rhianna pics are for entertainment reason only, his wife is an actress and may have a buckey naked sex scene with someone...if she is ok, then you all should be ok.
LL's picture

Rihanna looks absolutely

Rihanna looks absolutely beautiful without makeup. She is cool you know. Those pics i really don't like they look a little cheap. But one can't be mad cuz rihanna is getting work. Lets be proud for the girl. All this talk bout his wife would be mad. FOR WHAT?She be hugging and kissing guys on film so what if her husband does a lil photoshoot ain't like they kissing or grinding on one another.Its jus a photoshoot

[quote comment="14489"]Why does it have to be extra's with the pics that Robin and Rihanna took? The pics are hot and I didn't find them tasteless or anything of that nature.Oh their are alot of married people in that industry doing way worse stuff than posing for magazine pics and not gettin paid fot it at least he got paid for his work.Rihanna is hot right now and she gettin work.Congrats on every magazine cover or offer she gets. I like Rihanna (go girl).[/quote] I like Rhianna, look at the pics again, Robin did not look like he was having fun or comfortable in any of the pictures.

I hope my advice is helpful. P.S. love HBCU Morgan State alumnus Earl Graves for publishing Black Enterprise

Not really a Chris Brown

Not really a Chris Brown freak like most, but I do give him much props because he does what he does and he does it well. As for the Rihanna/Robin Thicke pics, they are just promo pics for a magazine, people. Y'all read way too much into things, serving as the morality police. Yes, he's married...AND? He's an artist, and this is what artists do. It's just promotion. Next week, someone'll say that he's left Paula Patton and Rihanna's having his baby. BE EASY.

Okay, I know he's only 18, but uh, Little C-Breezy can get it!!! Something about him now is starting to scream a little sexy. Maybe it's the tat on his neck....I'm a sucker for a light skinned dude with a tat on his neck!

I have changed my mind about the pics of Robin and Rhi. I said he looks uncomfortable and wondering what the wife will think. I say he looks afraid like he is scared of her. pics r priceless.

Oops. Meant 'first'. And

Oops. Meant 'first'. And that Outkast song is FIRE!!!!!!!!! 3 Stacks is always so underestimated. Big Boi too. Alotta folk sleep on those dudes. Marcia's gonna be the go-to-chick for hooks now. Like Lil' Mo was back in the day.

tHE Brezzy vid was straight.

tHE Brezzy vid was straight. I like the new grown up look on him. I smell Ne-yo all over that track though. A little reminiscent of Irreplacable, (the male version). But. is it wrong 4 me to want to see at least ONE BROWN GIRL IN HIS VIDEO!! just wonderin, cuz I saw NONE!!!

Thank you Shelly. I love when

Thank you Shelly. I love when they make stupid comments like that. They dominate EVERYTHING, but when another group wants to acknowledge and appreciate themselves then its questioned. We owe no answers to a group that continues to ignore our real accomplishments (beyond cooning), intellect and beauty. Like Chris Rock so eloquently put it, "If they losing, who in the hell is winning, cause it sure ain't us." That is the best way to look at the false claims of reverse racism.

Loving those covers! Its good

Loving those covers! Its good that blacks don’t always have to subject ourselves to foolishness to get attention like this. I hope these covers inspire people to get it together. Question: are those jeans or sweat pants Rihanna are wearing with pumps??
Mrswindycity's picture

bane ramowick, White folks

bane ramowick, White folks been embracin their whiteness to the exclusion of all other races for years so b!tch please, sit down and study your history. We black folk are only making up for the years when we were made to feel like being black was something to ashamed off. And, "young white and fabulous" just does not have the same ring to it. What you doin on this blog anyways? Its the Millienium of the Black Person so I'm afraid you're just gonna have to deal with it.

Robin does look

Robin does look uncomfortable. He's thinking, my wife is going to kill me when she sees these pics.
Shelly's picture

Unless you are a messy

Unless you are a messy person, who likes to spread unnecessary gossip, than you would read way too much into those pics, than what they are. Because, Robin is looking totally awkward in those pics, like he's uncomfortable, and by the looks of those pics, they have zero chemistry. And Robin looks so uncomfortable , once again. So, those pictures are so not risque, not in the least, and I'm pretty sure, his wife, was like whatever, baby, make the money, because I'm so not phased by a little girl. Cuz, his video Lost Without You, that was chemistry. And BE, of all the black men and women that are apart of the science world, economics, business, environment, international politics, etc, the editors chose to do another idiotic cover story on some entertainers, who do nothing to empower the world, or create a better life for our future. What about the first woman president of Liberia, or Kofi Anan, Obama, the black doctor that is a famous internationally acclaimed. People of importance.

~~Chris Brown's new video is

~~Chris Brown's new video is too cute! I like that alot. Fabulous...he is adorable. I do believe i see a new tatoo on his neck. He's really growing on me, i been seeing alot of him. I'm on team Breezy sky's the limit for him. I see big or rather bigger things for him. ~~Hmmm. I do like those photos with Rih and my boo Robin. He's married but i'm almost positive he wouldn't have done the photo shoot if she wasn't comfortable with it first. On another note...Rih looks HOT! i'm not a big fan of hers...but damn she needs to be model for somebody.

Is that girl really blowing

Is that girl really blowing Rhi Rhi's nails???????????? That's crazy! I honestly am sick of her as well but she could be the next Black Madonna. They have the same characteristics: 1. dramatically reinvents her look for each album 2.can't really sing 3.people sweat them ridiculously 4. been linked to people of all races
