Jill Scott Will Not Have to Pay Estranged Husband Spousal Support

Great news for Jilly from Philly…. Jill Scott, as a judge recently ruled the “Golden” singer wont have to pay estranged husband Mike Dobson’s divorce legal fees because it would be too similar to paying him spousal support, one thing her airtight prenuptial agreement will not allow, according to MadameNoire. Dobson previously tried to have the prenup thrown out.

“She did not throw him out with nothing. She gave him $20,000 when he left. And during the course of the marriage, she deposited funds into an account for his benefit.”

I know Jill Scott is glad all that is behind her now

Black Women Are The True Pioneers Of Acrylic Nails 

Think back to the moment when you got your first manicure or the time your mother gave you the okay to get acrylic nails. How did it make you feel? Powerful? Feminine? Grown up?

For most young Black women, getting our nails done is the ultimate act of self-love and care. And with the success of TV shows like Claws and Boss Nails, acrylic nails are having a beauty resurgence.

The modern acrylics we see today on influential stars, like Rihanna, Zendaya and Keke Palmer, are less than 70 years old. But it’s well-documented that Black women have been wearing artificial nails for decades — long before acrylics became mainstream.

Actually, you can thank a dentist named Frederick Slack Jr. for the invention of acrylics. In the 1950s, he broke his nail and used different chemicals and dental acrylics to create an artificial-looking nail to go over his old one. Of course, the trend trickled down to the African-American community and was very prominent in Hip-Hop culture in the ‘80s and ‘90s.


Donyale Luna was the first Black model to appear on the cover of Vogue, and she sported acrylic nails in Twen Magazine in 1966.


Legendary singer and actress Diana Ross paired her signature red lip with red artificial nails. She soon swaped the long, round shapes she wore in the ‘70s for more of a square shape in the ‘80s. 


Singer-songwriter Millie Jackson wore red talon-esque nails on the cover of her album A Moment’s Pleasure.


Olympic track star Florence Griffith-Joyner’s claws were often the topic of discussion, even more so than her athleticism. Having worked as a nail tech, Flo-Jo brought her skills to the track, wearing four-to-six inch acrylic nails.


Although many R&B stars wore long acrylic nails in the ‘90s, it was girl group SWV who was most known for it, especially lead singer Coko. As a young child, growing up in a religious home, Coko rebelliously began growing her nails long. By the time SWV hit the music scene, her curved nails often commanded more attention than her incredible voice.


Janet Jackson embraced pierced acrylic nails in the ‘98 video for Busta Rhymes’ sensuous song, What’s It Gonna Be

Today, there are more than six different nail shapes, including almond, square, coffin, oval and, the increasingly popular, stiletto. Not to mention, today, nail art enthusiasts can glam their digits up with jewelry, rhinestones and different painting techniques.

Cool breezes have started to appear, and while outside my house I can find blooming roses still, I can also see leaves starting to yellow. I love this upcoming season. Each season is something to savor and enjoy when it first appears, but fall has a special place in my heart for so many reasons.

WOKE up to a brisk 61 degrees at 6 a.m. that quickly rose to 84 by 9 a.m. here in Vegas. With it being 84 degrees here on the westcoast, we can still pull out our tanks , skirts and shorts. See how these Sistas pulled it off
