Social Media Showdown: Karrueche v. C. Breezy

by MIYA TREADWELL

Chris Brown and his on again, off again girlfriend Karrueche Tran are making headlines after a social media battle royal. This clash of words comes after an incident between the two outside of a LA nightclub on June 4th, where Chris forced his way into Karraueche’s car. According to media outlets, the situation continued to escalate outside of Karrueche’s home and later at Norm, a LA eatery.

Dating back to 2010, their relationship has had its share of break ups and make-ups. Yet it seemed to have come to a true end this past March when it was revealed that Brown fathered a daughter with another woman. Continue reading Social Media Showdown: Karrueche v. C. Breezy

by MARYAM OUTLAW

Most people consider the vow to spend the rest of your life with another human being to be a tremendous leap of faith. But on A&E’s show Married at First Sight, daring individuals take that traditional walk down the aisle to an entirely new level.

Love at Our Age- Opinion

By TRISTAN MADDEN

If you would allow me, I’d like to tell a story. Not too long ago, I had a very good friend, a perfect friend really. She was pretty, smart, and funny. She was the kind of person you really hate to have as a friend because you’d much rather her be your girlfriend. Well, at some point in our relationship, I made the ill-fated decision to try and make that change—and I was turned down. No, “turned down” doesn’t do justice to how spectacularly this girl rejected me. I didn’t know one person was capable of making me feel so bad about myself. I would have applauded her skill—if I wasn’t so certain the world itself was coming down around me. Ah, young love. It hurts like hell, and thank God for that.
