I've been walking in the same way as I did
Missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet
"Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I could call?"
"No and thank you, please Madam. I ain't lost, just wandering..."
Name: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins
Born: May 5, 1988 London, England
Musical influences: Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald
Graduated from The BRIT School (alma matar: Amy Winehouse, Katie Melua, Leona Lewis and Kate Nash)
Verdict: My latest obsession. Her voice haunts me, her words captivate me... I have found a new love.
In simple celebration of one of the best soundtracks ever.
Directed by Forest Whittaker... man, he needs to start putting some films together again. Spike Lee, get your shit together and come back with something enlightening.
Gina Prince Bythewood, you are missed.
Tyler Perry, stay the hell away from me.
SO tired of this man, all his movies have the same blueprint, the same loud-mouths, the same preachiness... ok, NEXT.
And what's with him and drag all the time? Only adds to the fact that I think this bama is gay, and can't nobody tell me nothing.
That, and his...
When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one
and you reach that deep well where passion lives,
nothing is impossible.
