I've compiled a list of Trends that are starting to make my eyes bleed from over exposure. Check out these 6 trends. CLICK HERE
Kelly Rowland takes Advantage of "Motivation"Aside from being mentioned in a Kanye West song or photographed by the paparazzi we haven't seen much of Kelly Rowland since her "Destiny was Fulfilled".

An hour ago the bass stopped and the music faded into the background as my ear drums danced to the end of Big Sean's long awaited Finally Famous album. After taking time to recall tracks that stuck out in my mind, focus on lyricism, and production I ultimately divulged my opinion of the record.
"I'm still dreaming bigger than I'm living, and just sleeping long enough to dream, spent long enough in the sheets, it's time to turn it to the real thing." Were the first words heard on the 16 bar intro track beginning the journey through Finally Famous. Dreams, celebration, and the hunger to make it all served as underlying themes on the debut. These messages can be heard heavily on "My Last", "Live This Life", and the closing track "So Much More". The Detroit native also flowed about everything from love to doubters, calling on personal experiences to serve as story telling rhymes. "Don't tell Me You Love me" speaks about an on and off again relationship plagued by the groupies that come with fame. In the mist of the G.O.O.D Music artists self reflection, Sean manages to provide some serious club bangers. "Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay" feat. Kanye West & Roscoe Dash, is already receiving play in the clubs, as well as Sean's next single "Dance (A$$)" where he switches sporadically between a sped up flow and his usually pace, following the pattern of the No ID produced track. Neptunes produced "Get It (DT)" is the perfect mid-tempo track to ride out to and has been getting good feedback from Big Sean fans.
The most undeniable songs on the album is Big Sean's most personal record and staple. "Memories" was a standout on his Finally Famous Vol. 3 Mixtape and on the album an added verse as well as piano playing soulful crooner John Legend provide an even more heartfelt version of the song in "Memories (part II)".
Other featured throughout the album include Lupe Fiasco, The Dream, and Wiz Khalifa. Even with the guest features Sean doesn't get lost in the bustle. The Rookie rapper establishes his laid back style and clever word play on records that appeal to the masses without losing his original sound and personable tracks. With Executive Producer Kanye West and No ID the 23 yr old, who was first noticed by Major audiences after a freestyle on B.E.T.'s Hip-Hop Awards, didn't disappoint in the content area.
Sean makes you feel like you're taking a peak into the look book of his struggle and journey to success. With impeccable rhyme scheme and lyricism you are able to feel each emotion of triumph with him through the passion behind each word. "Man I turned impossible possible, and what these niggas could barley see into the optical.... without any preparation, I exceed these expectations, they wanna see me dead but I gave them dedication." even with impeccable lyrics Big Sean's youthful raspy voice still provides feel G.O.O.D. music. Respectfully 4 out of 5 stars.

This is by far the most annoying trend of them all. The people who don't know the Artistically motivated designer whose shoes have been worn internationally for the past twenty years have now resulted to calling Christian Louboutin shoes "Red Bottoms" adding insult to injury annoying Facebook adds with imitations of the shoe are adding to it's depreciation. Louboutins shoes run for between $650-$3000 and sometimes higher so if you're walking around in the ones you paid $150 for they are probably fake. Leave the styles you know you can't afford to the stars, and if you can afford them but are taking a break due to the trend. Giuseppe heels are always a lovely alternative.
