Fancy Mr. President

First things first, who would have thought that the names Barack Obama and Iggy Azalea could be used in the same sentence ? Well thanks to the Good people at Baracksdubs, we can now talk about POTUS and the Big Bootied Australian at the Same damn time (Future voice) !

Listen to Mr Obama getting “fancy” mais, ou est Michelle ? FLOTUS, could have had Charli XCX verse…

ps: Steve Irwin “the crocodile hunter” remains our favorite Australian

Pour ceux qui ne le savent pas,

          POTUS= President Of The United States

         FLOTUS= First Lady Of The United States


NSFW – What a Shame

Si Rick Ross habitait en Afrique, où être “gros” / “en chair” est signe de richesse, il serait sûrement au même niveau que Kanga Moussa (considéré comme l’un des hommes les plus riches de l’Histoire, voir le plus riche , sa fortune étant estimée à 400 milliards de dollars ou 310 milliards d’euros actuels). Et ce même après avoir perdu 100lbs/45kg (soit, l’équivalent de Miley Cyrus), we can’t deny that Rozay c’est du lourd!

So for those of you who are enjoying the bizarre bipolar weather we’re having today in Brussels and for everyone else out there, I am sharing my personal playlist (of the moment) to help you ease into the start of this new week.

PS: If you’ve been riding in the car with me lately… I’m sure you’ve been subject to endless repeats.


10 Reasons why we’re Jealous of Blue Ivy Carter-Knowles

Okay, so just in case this wasn’t already obvious, baby Blue has quite the enviable life and we’re not afraid to admit that we are very much jelly! Quoi de mieux que d’être la progéniture du grand Jigga man et de l’éblouissante Yoncé?? Difficile pour nous, le peuple, de ne pas ressentir une pointe de jalousie face à tant de “fabulousity“. So, in the spirit of full disclosure, here are 10 reasons (in no particular order) why we the green-eyed monster can’t help but rear her “ugly” head out:

• Her parents are Jay-Z and Beyoncé (duh!)
• She’s the youngest person ever credited for being on the Billboard charts for Jay Z’s track Glory – dayum!
• Her exotic jetsetter lifestyle makes our vacations look like a trip to Newark, NJ (not that there’s anything wrong with that – remember that Seinfeld episode?)
• Her wardrobe simply makes us wanna cry we love it so much – EN PLUS de ça, elle va sûrement heriter de la garde robe de B, not to mention her $50K crown!
• That hair is fabulously N.A.PPY (Natural and Happy)!
• She’s been a social media magnet well before her internationally celebrated arrival. Yes people, Blue has even had her own Tumblr longer than she’s been alive!
• Blue. The name alone makes us jealous. People around the world are naming their children after her – talk about trendsetting!
• She was born with legit street cred
• She’ll never, ever hear from Sally Mae : WTF is credit history for anyway?!
• She’ll definitely be the first to find out what really happened that time in the elevator.
Et pour tous les haters out there qui doubtent encore de la puissance de Ms. Blue Ivy (see below)

The Chosen Toes

King James has it all, the awards/honors, a great career thus far, the recognition & a beautiful wife. He has even met President Obama more than twice (he definitely is not the average Joe). Une chose est sure, Lebron n’a pas eu à vendre son âme au diable pour réussir, he just worked hard, year after year after, well  until his toes got “djangoed” (1 km à pied, ça use les souliers … 10 km ça doit faire quoi aux pieds alors???) . Guess having jacked up toes is worth 2 Championships, 2 MVP’s and an Olympic Gold Medal.

The Day Nothing Happened

scanned by EPD from photocopyDaily Mail front page April 12, 1954         11

Ever wondered what the newspapers would be like on the most insipid day EVER (according to scientists at Cambridge)  of the century actually (I tend to exaggerate a little bit… sometimes)? The day nothing happened? Un jour où Bamako célébre ses mariages; la France n’est pas en grève (même les syndicalistes qui sont prêt à tout aren’t ready to face off with  aliens); à New York c’est la routine (everyday hustling); des élections insignifiantes en Belgique (case of Déju vu here); en Angleterre un voleur décide de s’emparer d’une coupe en argent d’une valeur de £50 (C’mon Man!!!) … même Israéliens et Palestiniens … nah I won’t go there!!!  Bref’, vraiment rien d’important. Ayways, I came across a couple of newspaper front pages of the dullest day. Rien d’impressionant quoi…

Alanis said it best: [it’s like] A traffic jam when you’re already late/
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break/
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife/
It’s meeting the man of my dreams/
And then meeting his beautiful wife/
And isn’t it ironic…don’t you think/
A little too ironic…”

Les Perles de Francky

Bientôt la nouvelle saison de foot et… de nouvelles pépites de Mr Franck “the french master” Ribery !!!

  • « Arrêtez de vous battez ! »
  • « Je suis quelqu’un que j’aime beaucoup rigoler, que j’aime blaguer. »
  • « Le match où ils ont joué, maintenant, y’a des joueurs qui sont sur le terrain qui z’étaient pas. »

  • « Je pense que ce soir ça été beaucoup meilleur. »
  • « J’espère que la routourne va vite tourner. »
  • « Maintenant, faudra faire avec, sans Zizou. »
  • « On est des joueurs qu’on va vite avec le ballon. »
  • « Là, on est en train de rentrer dans un truc que tout le monde sont en train de s’foutre de nous, c’est-à-dire dans le Monde. »
  • « C’est une équipe aussi qui peuve marquer beaucoup de buts mais qui peuve en prendre aussi »
  • « Moi personnellement, je me critique moi tout seul »
  • « Tout le monde me connaît comment je suis »

” There are seven things that will destroy us: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Religion without sacrifice, Politics without principle, Science without humanity and Business without ethics“. I recently came across this quote on the internet and the words resounded in my head as I was watching the video below about the Rohingya people. A community I had never heard of until not long ago.


After watching this I had to broaden my knowledge and read more about the Rohingyas because I felt sympathy towards the men and women present in the documentary but also because I’m just a curious person in general and I truly believe that being  aware of things going on in other parts of the world is more than important.
