Watch @maryjblige, @kerrywashington and @TherealTaraji Groove It Out In New @AppleMusic Commercial Directed by @AVAETC [VIDEO]September 20th, 2015 by Christen
How much black girl magic does it take to convince you that Apple Music is the next big thing in streaming? Apple is banking on four to be that magic number. Earlier tonight, Apple Music debuted a super cute and nostalgic commercial that set Twitter and Facebook ablaze.
You know just how much fun it is to hang out with your girls and listen to music, now imagine that excitement multiplied by TEN! That’s how wild it would be if Mary J. Blige, Kerry Washington and Taraji P. Henson showed up at your door for a fun girls night in. Now imagine if the evening was orchestrated and captured by acclaimed director Ava Duvernay and you’ve got Apple Music’s vision loud and clear.
Check out the amazing ode to #BlackGirlMagic and ode to a good old fashioned girls night in via Apple Music below.

What do you think? Is a commercial starring your favorite girlfriends (in your head) enough to make you want to shell out $9.99/month in Apple Music service? Sound off below!
You could imagine the excitment that took place on and off the green carpet, on and off the main stage and on and off your television during the 2011 BET Awards. ?As a fan, member of the online media community and all around nosey-diva, you could imagine my drive to get some behind the scene candid shots of the entire experience. But using any old camera just would not do! I had to get my hands on the Kodak EasyShare Max to get those crisp, professional shots that you expect, RIGHT?
If you love taking pictures, then the Kodak EasyShare Max Camera is exactly what you’re looking for. ?When searching for that perfect shot whether its in direct sunlight or nighttime, this high performance camera (filled to the brim with unique features and easy sharing options) makes it a breeze to capture what you see. ?As the “Best In Class” click to capture speed and fast auto focus camera this camera pulled it’s weight and then some during the high energy of the BET Awards. ?As the World’s only 3-step sharing camera – Kodak’s “share” button makes it simple to email, upload photos/videos to your favorite social media sites and share your memories with the world.
Check out a few of my Armed & Dangerous moments as I captured a few shots on and off the red carpet at the 2011 BET Awards!

Mary J. Blige kicked off the BET Awards in grand fashion singing a melody of hits and even a duet with Anita Baker. ?But the hi-note of the evening came when Ms. MJB walked backstage in a sexy Herve Leger Bandage dress! Max Azria infused metal links into the Herve Leger signature bandage. Houndstooth found itself growing and shrinking on alternating strips easily making this one of the best dresses (not on the red carpet). Corsetry was pronounced in both leather and stretch, and linked cutouts made?the silhouette sleek and sexy. Who knew?houndstooth could be so sexy!
From the runway to the BET Awards…and maybe coming to a White Party near you soon…
