100 Most POWERFUL Sistas On Twitter.

In a time when Black Women are NOT looked upon favorably, it brings my heart such joy & pleasure to present to you “The 100 Most Powerful Black Women On Twitter” List! According to BlackWeb2.0, they used Klout and Twittergrader, two online reputation measurement tools, to compile a list of the 100 most powerful black women on Twitter. These women have gained a tremendous amount of influence on Twitter by amassing a large number of followers, retweets, and memberships on user lists.

Now I don’t know how the HELL KAT STACKS got on this list, but the rest of these women are PHENOMENAL! They omitted quite a few I can think of off the top of my head. But for the most part, I follow MOST of these ladies myself, and I’m proud to be able to call many of them Friend.

CONGRATULATIONS LADIES! You’ve Earned It.

-“The BklynBandette.” Mr. Hollywood’s Co-Defendant.

India Arie NOT Diggin’ Lady Gaga & Beyonce’s “Telephone” Video.

Beyonce & Lady Gaga -- 'Video Phone' Music Video!
India Arie is not really happy with Lady Gaga and Beyonce ‘Telephone’ music video. Arie believes it is irresponsible and that the pop stars have gone too far with the amount of sexuality used in the video. So she took to her Twitter to state her displeasure saying:

Don’t be offended this is all MY opinion… Am I the only one who thinks the “telephone” video is going a bit too far?
I’m not referring to the abstract nature of the video … I’m talking about the IMAGERY – the unspoken back story, the language the message
I agree gaga is being her image .. I dig her creative mind But still … Thers a such thing as socially irresponsible… I’m just sayin.

Its not long before somebody does a straight NAKED video. Not like Alanis morrisette “thank you india” like NAKED dancing around. LOLhahaha
Let’s be CLEAR! I know it gaga M.O. – I don’t live under a rock. And I get that a lot of work put into it. I’m talking social responsability

There’s an artist ever 10 years who pushes the envelope … but its bout to fall off the Table. When is it too far?
I respect the creative mind but disagree with the “choices” as a dish meant to be served for mass consumption ..
Crazy to me that the Dark, underbelly, s shock at all cost thing is a TREND like asymetrical hair and big shoulder jackets .Slippery slope!
Love life. 6 year old at the store old her mom say who’s your favorite singer

This girl is CUTE! She says “india arie” “aaaaaand?” Her mom promots her she says “beyonce “aaaand” her mom says again “Lady gaga”

Mom turns to me and says “but I won’t let her watch the “telephone” lolhahahaahha! Haha! Tooo Funny.”

4Give me y’all, I respect India Arie as an artist, her opinions & freedom to voice them. However, I TRULY believe if she were what’s “Poppin'” right now, she wouldn’t have time to “critique” anyone else’s work. Some months ago Tiffany Evans tried to call out Rihanna. 2DAY, we’re all groovin’ to “Rude Boy’, while young Tiffany is a distant faded memory. NO, India is not unknown like Tiff, but this is NOT the way to get people to care about your projects. Because if Beyonce & Gaga disappeared tomorrow, that would guarantee you NOTHING!

Just MY opinion.
