πŸ†Grammys 2019

Stephy Says πŸ’‹ if you didn’t get a chance to watch the 61st Recording Academy Grammys, here’s a recap–the awards were hosted by the beautiful Alicia Keys. In my honest opinion, her hosting was dry & boring. Aside from that, her first outfit was a no go for me. It had a “night gown” feel and lacked elegance for the occasion. However, I get her concept of comfort.

The 2nd outfit was my favorite & was extra cute. This critique isn’t one of her outfit of choice. This time I will speak on her performance. I didn’t necessarily enjoy her rendition of the Drake “In my Feelings” cover or the spins she placed on the Lauryn Hill covers, but there are some who enjoyed it. Her voice didn’t seem as strong and soulful as I remember it being when I was growing up.

A. Keys 3rd outfit, oversized leather jumpsuit had a “trashbag” to me, but once again, the comfortable theme stuck .

The final outfit was my 2nd favorite & she was stunning.

In addition to the list of winners, here a few pics of my favorite looks & best dressed according to what Stephy Says πŸ’‹

While some celebrities slayed the Grammys, others missed the mark. These my least favorite looks according to what Stephy Says πŸ’‹

Stephy Says πŸ’‹ highlights :

J. Lo’s tribute to Motown was flawless. I must admit I was nervous when I heard she would be doing the Motown performance. Buttt J. Lo delivered the heat. (Pictures courtesy of Hollywood life.)
Cardi B had an amazing night with a flawless performance to her hit Money. Her performance was perfect besides her necklace falling off in the middle of the perform. Don’t worry, she handled it like a boss. Okkurrrttt πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ Offset was a happy supportive husband, and looked at her like he was really in love. He almost looked like he was sorry for that cheating scandal that took place last year.
Cardi B made history tonight by becoming the first female rapper to win a Grammy for best rap album of the year.
Diana Ross blazed the stage in sheer beauty as she celebrated her 75th birthday. She’s just as beautiful as ever & can sannnnngggg. Flawless performance except a brief moment when her throat scratched.
Travis Scott was a complete animal & the dopest crowd surfer.

H.E.R delivered a breathtaking performance. Her guitar & singing combined was impeccable.

And Drake accepted his award looking like a snack. He also delivered a heart felt speech that got a tad bit long winded & had it cut off.

Overall, I must say, the Grammys was a success & worth the watch.

🎢Loving George Lovett

Stephy Says πŸ’‹ if you haven’t heard George Lovett, you are missing out.

George Lovett was a contestant on season 11 of American Idol, but didn’t make it to Hollywood week that time. He auditioned again in season 13 in 2014.

Americanidolnet.com reports that “American Idol 2012 audition was part of a group trip of SCAD students. He ended up being the only person who made it through to Hollywood Week.

Although he didn’t get as far as he desired on American Idol, he is a 3 time winner of Showtime at the Apollo.

He’s still a winner in my book. πŸ†

Mr. Lovett is from Baltimore, MD and describes himself as a soulful singer, actor, & songwriter. George is a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in performance art and is now studying Sound Engineering.

According to Americanidolnet.com, Lovett stated,  β€œI want to be the voice of my generation and bring real great singing back.” If you’re asking me, he’s doing everything he is aiming to do. I could listen to him sing & whistle any day & every day.

Some of his music artists likes are Brandy, Jessica Sanchez, Kanye West, Drake, will.i.am, Angie Miller, and Fantasia.

In 2paragraphs.com, Lovett states, “I feel like God placed a voice in me and I feel like it’s just my duty to present it to the world….I would just be betraying everything I believe in.”


My love for George grew overnight. I happened to stumble across a video of this musically talented young man whistling on Facebook, and from that day forward, I decided I was going to follow him & his musical journey. I have no been disappointed by a video I’ve viewed yet. I’ve been showing off his videos as if I know him personally, but the talent is so real & raw, I feel like everyone I come across HAS to hear him. Become a fan today & you won’t be dissatisfied.


Check out George Lovett’s whistling skills here.

Not only is George Lovett’s voice amazing & attention grabbing, his whistling is impeccable! Everything about his whistling & singing: from his tone to his range to his technique is breathtaking. I’m a forever fan! πŸŒŸπŸ’«

  • 😠Taraji P. & Erykah Badu Create Outrage

    Stephy Says πŸ’‹ if you haven’t heard, Taraji P. Henson has sparked a flame & has some fans outraged.

    David Barden wrote this article just this morning at 4:01 AM & Huffpost released this story 😱

    Apparently, Taraji P. attempted to equate & compare the Surviving R. Kelly (#muteRKelly) to the old sick skeezer Harvey Weinstein. She basically reportedly called out society for the hushed responds to Harvey Weinstein’s sex assaults while R. Kelly’s flourished all over the internet.

    In the alleged deleted Instagram video, Taraji searched the #muteRKelly hashtag & yielded multiple results, while #muteHarveyWeinstein only yielded 1 result used on 29 posts.

    Her attempt to compare the two left Twitter users in a frenzy stating that they aren’t sure what her point is, or what exactly she’s trying to prove.

    After the stir on social media, Taraji comes back to clarify in attempt to make things right.

    This post will be updated as the story updates.

    🚨More articles posted here & here 🚨


    If you haven’t been following the story, Erykah Badu stated that she was “praying for R. Kelly,” & some felt as if she was “letting him off the hook” or downsizing his crimes to”poor choices” & condoning his behavior.

    Screenshot courtesy of Pitchfork

    Even with the backlash, Erykah Badu supports his healing. (Stephy Says πŸ’‹ not excusing his behavior but, be open minded & remember that even if he turned out to be a sexual predator, he was once a victim).

    With her choice of words being taken out of context, this set off the Twitter fans & they are backing her.

    She was accused of stating that R. Kelly has done more for the black community than any one has & here’s her clarification for that :

    Erykah Badu entered a Twitter war with the executive director of Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. According to Jezebel, Erykah Badu denies ever being asked to be in the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series.

    Keeping πŸ†™with the Jetts

    Stephy Says πŸ’‹Here’s an update of the power couple L. Terrel & Rachel Rae:

    Since the last blog post, Var & Rae Plus 8, quite a few changes have occured.

    I was ranting and raving about how amazing this power couple was, but since October 2018, the Jetts have managed to level up once more. Their relocation to Georgia, from a small town in VA, has already greeted them with life changing events.

    L. Terrel has been performing regularly to his rapidly growing fan base in Georgia, all the while showing love to his hometown fans and supporters as they continue supporting him. Along with performances, L. Terrel also has his hits spinning at the local radio station.

    His EP “Stay Up” has dropped & it’s πŸ”₯! I know this from personal experience. I purchased the EP & I haven’t stopped listening to it since I purchased it. It’s available on iTunes. The song that I personally listen to & have on repeat is —Sorry. Everything he said in that song, πŸ—£I FELT THAT ‼️

    L. Terrel has newness is dropping soon–πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚Birthday Girl featuring Era will be available on all platforms on January 26th! (Birthday Girl release countdown will be available on Stephysays.com).

This melaninated queen is the epitome of black girl magic.οΏΌ She’s naturally & unapologetically dope. Rachel Rae’s make up skills & precision in applying makeup is unmatched. In fact, her clients hated to see her leave VA, but were supportive in her endeavors. Her makeup expertise was widespread throughout the DMV (Washington, DC, Maryland, & VA) with Georgia being added to her map of success. Because of her natural beauty & flawless skin, modeling comes naturally for her. Check out the pics & how effortlessly she poses & captures your attention. 😍

They have a drive to succeed, receive motivation from one another, and are ambitious. In fact, they are so ambitious, they left behind a familiar life and began a new journey in order to fulfill the dream.

    πŸ—£Soulja Boy Told’em

    Stephy Says πŸ’‹ Soulja Boy is back & this time he is on a come up. This is a come back & I must say, I’m LOVING this guy now! He’s headlining the internet & I am here for it!

    He just about broke the internet with 3.5 million views on his interview with the Breakfast Club in 24 hours 😱

    If you haven’t been following Soulja Boy’s stories, here’s a clip from the Breakfast Club Interview with Soulja Boy. He’s back & demanding his respect for making these “relevant” rappers who they are today. Soulja Boy calls out Drake for stealing his line, flow, and bars. He even goes as far as saying, “I taught him everything he know.”

    In addition to calling out Drake, Soulja Boy also went in on Kanye West bashing him for supporting President Trump. Pop Culture released an article of Soulja Boy’s words about Yeezy. He said everything he wanted to say & he did so with no remorse stating,

    β€œYou up here supporting Trump and sβ€”,” he said. β€œYou supporting Trump, bruh? What the fβ€” wrong with you, bruh. That sβ€” not right, bruh. I have sat back long enough and I’m not holding my tongue no more, bruh. Kanye, call me, get in tune with me cause if not I’m going to keep checking you.”

    β€œMy folks went through too much sβ€” for you to be out here doing this goofy sβ€”,” he went on. β€œMy grandaddy been through too much, my grandma and great grandaddy, they from Mississippi and they from Mississipi, we went through slavery and sβ€”. You gotta put on for the black community.”


    Soulja Boy is cutting no slack on anyone! He has also been trolling Ariana Grande on Twitter & accusing her of stealing his flow From Kiss me Through the Phone. Crazy enough, it seems like he has the fan support.


    I’m not sure of the age range of those reading my blog, but here are a few songs Soulja Boy is known for:

  • Crank That (and that hit had everybody doing the yooooouuuuu)
  • Kiss Me Through the Phone
  • Yahhh!
  • Pretty Boy Swag
  • Turn My Swag On
  • Donk

  • According to hotnewhiphop.com, one of the Migos, Quavo, confirmed that Soulja Boy influenced alot of the music we are hearing today. If you read the article (hotnewhiphop.com) as previously mentioned, Quavo’s statement was “Soulja most definitely influenced a lot of everybody’s work. He’s speaking facts. He hasn’t said anything wrong.”
  • In addition to Quavo’s support, Soulja Boy also has the support of Meek Mill.
  • Hiphopdx.com mentioned in their article that countless people backed Big Soulja up on Twitter, demanding others give Soulja credit where credit is due.

  • Revolt released an article titled “9 ways Soulja Boy revolutionized today’s hip hop culture”. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments πŸ“₯πŸ“₯

  • *According to Twitter:

  • Billboard released their article about Soulja Boy beefs here

  • I think it’s safe to say Soulja Boy is once again a sensation!

  • πŸ‘†πŸ½Stay πŸ†™ with L. Terrel

    Stephy Says πŸ’‹ I briefly mentioned L. Terrel in a previous blog post with his BEAUTIFUL & talented wife. (Check out the post Var & Rae plus 8). In that post, I spoke moreso about their personal life.

    Allow me to call your attention to L. Terrel – the ARTIST!

    L. Terrel is originally from a small town, Franklin, Virginia, where he has grown a fan base for over a decade. As far as I can remember, his whole life has been music, & I’ve had the privilege of hearing him grow & mature as an artist. He easily had a Chris Brown vibe singing while growing older. His voice has definitely matured into a real & raw one that demands your attention as soon as he opens his mouth.


    If you didn’t check out the previous post, I will take a few seconds to revisit some of the statements I made about L.Terrel. His voice is insanely good.

    Don’t believe me?

    You have to watch this video & it’s one of my favorite songs! (Issa vibe) — (he HAS to sing this at my wedding 😝)

    L. Terrel has developed & continuously develops into a star. He works diligently to perfect his craft & shamelessly promotes and markets himself. That alone is sure to cause him to rise to stardom. Stephy Says πŸ’‹ trust me when I say, L.Terrel will be one of the next top names in music! Be on the lookout for him. πŸ‘€

    Since the last post, he & his lovely family have moved to Atlanta, Georgia in effort to follow their dreams. According to what Stephy Says πŸ’‹, this is another reason L. Terrel is destined to be a star 🌟 Within the first month of the transition he has already performed his hit single β€œStay Up” and been included in rotation on the local radio station.

    Singing & music isn’t just what he does, it’s who he is. Singing is his dream, yet also his reality. With his versatile voice, he’s able to flawlessly sing any rendition of any song of choice from soul to RnB to pop.
