If you’re a gospel fan, chances are Yolanda Adams’ music has inspired you over the years. Well, this weekend Adams used her music and her story to inspire the 100 high school students at Disney Dreamers Academy this weekend. MadameNoire had the chance to speak to Yolanda about how she started singing professionally, though she never had an interest in doing so. She also talked about how the high school students ended up inspiring her as well.

When Joe Budden says the way he loves is a gift and a curse we believe him. From just two episodes of “Love & Hip-Hop” we can see the New Jersey rapper has a big heart, unfortunately it often seems to get lost underneath that hot head of his, and his seeming inability to take responsibility for the pain he causes others — particularly the ladies in his life.
Well, MN sat down with “Joey” to see what all of his lazy attitude toward love is about, and though it’s clear he’s not quite yet the man you would probably want to take home to your mama. He’s getting there by acknowledging the things he’s learned about love from women over the years. Check out this interview and see what he had to say about his approach to a happy relationship. Thoughts?
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Black people debate over the n-word all the time and though there’s mixed opinion as to whether we have the right to use the word and should use it, one thing that’s unanimous is that white people should not use the word under any circumstances. Unfortunately, a lot of non-black people seem to have missed that memo. Consequently, they try to sneak in the word any chance they get, whether in a greeting, a rap song, or on the news. We can’t for the life of us understand white people’s fascination with using the n-word; so, we brought it up to the ladies of The Frisky to get their take on this phenomenon and fess up to whether they’ve used the word themselves and think they should be able to.
Check out the episode and weigh in below.

We have to get this clip over to Marlon Wayans asap because brotha doesn’t know just how sexay the ladies — and apparently gay men — think he is. Check out the chat we had with him after our NSFW game of Charades when we asked him how he feels about getting all sorts of metrosexual love, and more importantly why he’s surprised by it. Ol’ boy’s been sleeping on himself!
Check out the first video in the series tomorrow, January 8. And once you’ve watched be sure to leave questions you’ve always wanted to ask white women in the comments section.

Some of you may know that our MN appointed “relationship expert,” Damon Young is also one half of the über popular blog, Very Smart Brothas.com. Well, one day I was just playing around on the internet when I stumbled across a post Damon wrote two years ago called, “10 Questions You’ve Always Wanted To Ask a White Person.”
Tres interessant! I know I’ve had questions for years. I read it. These were questions black people all over America have pondered time and time again. I loved it. Then, as if this internet gem couldn’t have shone any brighter, I found the responses, T.D. Hurst, a white guy, provided. Nice!
As a woman who hasn’t had close, white friends since high school, some of the answers were surprising, some funny and I finished the post a bit more informed. Then, because I moonlight as a thief, I thought this is something we can do for Madame Noire…except with white women.
So, during one of our weekly editorial meetings the MN editors came up with questions we’ve always wanted to ask white women, before we even knew which white women we were going to ask. And believe us, we kept it real. The whole point was for the conversation to be to honest and helpful.
Then came time to find the white women we wanted to ask. That’s where the women of The Frisky came in. I’ve been a fan of their site for a while now, so naturally I reached out. We e-mailed a couple of the editors to see if they’d be interested in not only answering our questions but asking some of their own as well. We heard back within the hour.
Initially, we were going to answer the questions and make this just a print post. But then Amelia of The Frisky said they were going to answer some of the questions in their weekly video. *Ding! Lightbulb moment.* We should do a video too…with the ladies of The Frisky. We worked out our schedules and met to shoot our first video in what will hopefully be an ongoing series: “I Always Wanted To Ask…”
Well we did that thang and a short version of the video will air on Madame Noire tomorrow, Tuesday, January 8th and then the full version will air on Wednesday, January 9th.
Check out a trailer for the series and get to know the women who will be featured in the video, the editorial staff of The Frisky and Madame Noire.
Christmas was just yesterday and hopefully Santa has already visited your house; but we’re still in the mood for Christmas music, so we chose Eartha Kitt’s slightly sultry, definitely demanding wish list for Mr. Claus. It’s one of our favorites. Is this your song too?
Though love songs these days don’t quite sound like they used to, it doesn’t mean the genre has died altogether. In fact, 2012 was a good year for love songs; check out some of our favorites and let us know if you agree.

Avant & KeKe Wyatt
The Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell duo for the millennium reunited for their first collaboration since “Nothing In This World,” which was released and “Six Questions,” a song from 2006 which appeared on one of KeKe’s shelved albums. And though both KeKe and Avant have gotten older, it’s clear that they’ve still got it. This duet, despite the lackluster video, is exactly what the game has been missing, since they stopped singing together.
