Fantasia might be having the best week ever two weeks in a row judging by her performance on “The View” yesterday. When we tell you she shut it down, we mean she shut it all the way down.
Singing her latest single, “Lose To Win,” Fantasia brought Sherrie Shepherd to tears with her soulful performance which was truly a testament to how far she’s come from being the insecure young girl out of High Point, North Carolina, who let everyone mooch off of her, to a 28-year-old grown woman with more confidence and peace than she’s ever had. In fact, that’s exactly what she told the ladies during her interview, saying:
“My song ‘Lose to Win’ is my testimony. When I say I’m winning again, I’m not talking about money, about houses and cars – I’m talking about peace.”
We don’t doubt the money, houses, and cars will come soon, though. Despite having to turn over the deed to her home to the bank this past weekend, the cheers she received from the crowd when she simply stepped onto “The View” stage tells me she has a lot more people in her corner than she may realize, and there support will likely lift her higher than she ever was before.
Check out Fannie’s performance up top and video of her interview below. What do you think?
New research from the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that employers are more concerned with a candidate’s ability to think critically and solve problems than with the particular major that the potential hire declared in school.
“Four out of 5 employers said each college graduate should have broad knowledge in the liberal arts and sciences, and 3 out of 4 would recommend a liberal education to their own children,” The Huffington Post reports. It’s worth noting that we couldn’t find a breakdown of the different industries represented by the research participants. For example, if there weren’t a lot of employers in a STEM industry, that could impact the results.
Spring 2013 is finally here, and this season is all about new and fresh takes on your home, business, career, and lifestyle.

Your story is your biggest career asset. It’s what separates you from every job candidate out there. It holds your strengths and passions. It shapes your career vision. No wonder employers’ favorite first question for an interview is a simple request to “tell me about yourself.” They want to hear your story.
The problem with this question, and probably the reason it’s a favorite, is that it gives responders enough leeway to make a unique case for themselves, or completely bomb the interview. Fear not. We’ve compiled 10 tips from top recruiters to help you craft an answer that will leave interviewers with the perfect sense of who you are.
With an economy that has more job seekers then jobs, Americans are bound to run into competition with each other for an available opportunity. Job seekers come from various employment backgrounds,have different experiences, and are at different ages. But there’s one thing all seekers have in common? The resume.
Depending on who you ask, a resume is highlights your job experience or hides what you can truly do as an employee. Either way, hiring managers take the resume seriously, and can help or hinder your efforts to score the job they have available.
Still, your resume only gets a couple of seconds of a hiring manager’s time. Make sure to avoid these common mistakes, and you might get a second look-over for the job!
Well, well, well look whose love life is suddenly gone with the wind fabulous.
MadameNoire got a chance to chat with Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore and she had quite a bit to say about her portrayal on TV — you know as the desperate man-stealing woman begging a man who obviously didn’t want to be with her to put a ring on it. Surprisingly, Kenya told us she doesn’t regret anything she’s done on the show so far, from her blow out at the Bailey Agency to chasing after Walter. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that she has a new man in her life — and a revitalized game plan to get down the aisle and barefoot and pregnant ASAP. Check out what she had to say in our exclusive interview.

Or if you did, it was kind of by happenstance? Yep, those days are long gone and the celebs are the ones that seem to talk the most since they have the spotlight. Let’s check out the blabbermouths!
If you’re hot right now, Oprah is trying to talk to you. And who’s hotter than the Miami Heat? (Corny joke intended.) After her interview with the Kardashian Clan, OWN received a ratings boost. So in an effort to continue the momentum, Lady O is going to sit down with Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to discuss their friendship, the challenges they’ve faced and their romantic relationships.
It probably won’t get the same type of views as the Kardashian interview, but I know I’m interested.
Oprah will interview the trio for her show “Oprah’s Next Chapter” next Sunday at 8 p.m. on OWN of course.
What about you, are you interested to hear what these three have to say?
