The best lesson in self-confidence and beauty Yasmine Cheyenne what she has learned to this point is to trust her intuition. It is sensible that her latest book titled Wisdom of the Path, available today, would focus on this data. “When I wrote my first book, Jar of Sugar, I used to be writing this chapter that had nothing to do with the book” and which was about setting boundaries. Instead of forcing it, Cheyenne used it as the premise for his latest project.

“It’s more about forgiving yourself for the choices you’ve made in the past,” Cheyenne tells ESSENCE from her home in Washington, DC. “I think many of us feel like we are held hostage by past mistakes. In this book you will learn how to use these lessons as your inner wisdom. They don’t have to hold you back from your future. They can really help guide you into your future,” he adds. “I hope readers realize that we are absolutely limitless.”

Before writing and creating content on wellness and mental health, Cheyenne worked within the United States Air Force where she served as a victims’ advocate. In other words, she was “a person who helped support people who were victims of crime, domestic violence and the like,” Cheyenne explains. “It opened my eyes to wellness, healing and trauma. I immediately became interested in how I could help people get to the other side of really difficult times.” However, her passion for writing blossomed earlier – across the age of 9 – which ultimately led her to major in journalism in college.

In her free time, Cheyenne practices what she preaches by watching shows, meditating, going for each day walks, and maintaining her basic beauty routine of face masks and products Sophia Pavitt, including Elta MD and Cécred. Self-care also is available in the shape of spending time with your community. “I feel best when I’m with people who I can just be myself with and have fun. This is really important to me,” he says. “Also, being with my kids and doing something silly like dancing or chasing them around the park helps me feel really grounded and present.”

And speaking of community, that is what excites her most about her latest enterprise. “I’m going to do a book tour in New York, DC, Los Angeles and Miami,” he says. Instead of connecting online, he says, “I can’t wait to connect with people in real life.” Throughout these conversations on and off the book, you’ll be able to expect Cheyenne to strive to remain authentic. “The most important thing that helps me share my vulnerability is knowing that what I am sharing is a scar. It’s not an open wound. I’ve worked through it,” she says. “No matter what anyone might think, I feel strong enough to deal with it.” Ultimately, I never want anyone to feel like they’re alone in what they’re going through. “I’m with you all on this.”

Jonathan Majors speaks out about his conviction at the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards

Jonathan Majors spoke more about his domestic violence conviction during his speech at the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

The “Creed III” actor, who won the Perseverance Award, addressed the trial and verdict during an emotional 14-minute speech during which he broke down in tears. Majors was convicted of 1 count of assault and one count of molestation in December 2023 after his ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence.

“I think that’s what people want to know about last year. As a black man working in the criminal justice system, I felt angry,” said Majors, per Entertainment Weekly. “I felt sadness, pain, surprise. When I used to be taken out of my apartment in handcuffs, I didn’t feel like that at all. I didn’t feel like Jonathan Majors. Mr. Creed. Mr. Kang… I felt like a little bit of a scared, weak boy, despite the support and evidence that was in my favor. I knew… it was bad. It was flawed due to who I used to be and what I’m.

Majors, who was ordered to finish a 52-week violence intervention program, added that he had grow to be aware of his “shortcomings” and that his “faith had been tested and strengthened” over the past 12 months.

“We live in a world where men – especially black men – are portrayed as either superheroes or supervillains,” he said. “But I noticed that I personally don’t do anything like that. It was fun, but I’m just me… I’m imperfect. I even have flaws, I admit them.

“I’ll say this: there shall be moments in your life where it gets dark – and I mean really dark – and I even have seen them from the depths. I saw this darkness in myself,” Majors concluded. “I sat on this total darkness and learned that once you see a glimmer of sunshine, you run towards it as hard and as fast as you may. And I won’t ever take that light as a right again.

Majors also thanked several A-list stars for his or her support during his acceptance speech, including Will Smith, Tyler Perry, David Oyelowo, Whoopi Goldberg, Courtney B. Vance and his girlfriend Meagan Good.

Draya Michele and her young beau, Houston Rockets star Jalen Green, don’t care about critics questioning their 17-year age difference.

In fact, Michele, 39, said TMZ that they’re aware that they mustn’t reply to critical comments, while Green, 22, interjected and added: “We don’t care either.” The couple was captured by a photographer as they strolled the streets of Los Angeles, looking like they were on a lunch date.

The former “Basketball Wives” Los Angeles solid member further added, “I don’t know what people’s problems are. Two adults are in love with each other, you know, I don’t know why that would irritate people in the wrong way. That is a bit strange. Love is love at the end of the day.”

Critics were quick to answer her comments. One person he wrote“There is no love in it in any respect. She’s just a girl securing one other check and that is all. A second person tweeted that Green’s lack of maturity was evident from their interactions, or lack thereof, in the video.

“This man is empty-handed while elderly Mrs. Draya pushes a baby stroller through a busy intersection, carrying a bag with her baby and attempting to avoid the caller. The jokes write themselves,” we read in the article comment.

Third response read: “This young nigga do not know the right way to be a no person daddy. He is young and she mainly has 2 newborns.

Social media users accuse her of seducing a young man. The first rumors that the Mint Swim founder and Green were dating in August 2023.

Their speculated courtship quickly became the subject of pregnancy rumors when a model supporting him was spotted at a Rockets home game in January in an oversized jumpsuit. The upcoming birth of her third child was announced in May, in a dramatic and mawkish way, on International Women’s Day.

“We are happy to share our love for you, little girl. I’m excited to say words to my daughter that I never thought I would have. We are anxious about your arrival, but take your time – this world can be difficult. But know that you are being transported to a space of love, safety and adornment,” she wrote, remaining a mother at the time, confirming that Green is the father of her unborn child.

His suspicions were confirmed when his friend and Washington Wizards player Kyle Kuzma congratulated Draya and Green online.

Michele is already mother to 22-year-old son Kniko Howard from a previous relationship and 8-year-old Jru Scandrick, whom she shares with her ex-fiancé, retired NFL player Orlando Scandrick. The latest baby, born on Mother’s Day, is Green’s second child.

Social media users were shocked to learn that he welcomed a daughter with a girl named Myah Iakopo in February. According to TMZ, despite their overlapping schedules, Iakopo “isn’t concerned about what Green does with his personal life outside of co-parenting” and has no issues with Michele.

This isn’t the end for Drake. A text exchange about the future of the man Kendrick crushed

Published

on

By

My homie texted: How’s it going with Drake? (I actually have yet to receive a positive response from Drake).

I texted: This isn’t the end in any respect. Drake is doing well. He probably finds public shaming painful for him personally, considering how necessary his image is to him, so he might have to talk over with his therapist about it, but career-wise, he makes good money. Kendrick has definitely taken over the culture. Today he’s the central figure. If highschool is the culture, Kendrick is by far the hottest kid at school. Drake was the hottest kid at school, but now he’s all about K-Dot. He’s got the song of the yr in “Not Like Us,” possibly even the song of the yr, and the music video hasn’t even been made yet. He just gave the concert of the summer. He cannot be stopped now. But if culture is highschool, Drake still goes to highschool. He got beaten up in the parking zone and everybody saw it, but he wasn’t kicked out. And if the culture, as in Black culture, is one highschool, then we must understand that Drake is someone who attends two schools without delay. A large portion of his fans aren’t involved in that culture, they don’t seem to be black, and so they don’t care about hip-hop the way the culture at large does, and Kendrick dunking on Drake doesn’t change how they feel about him.

He replied: Certainly. Not over the top prefer it was with Ja Rule, but I assume where do you go in the men’s rap game when a big part of your success comes out of your perceived roughness and place in the game?

I texted: I believe for the most part, Drake fans and Kendrick fans are different people. Just like in the cafeteria at this proverbial school, they sit at different tables. They don’t even sit on the same side of the dining room. There aren’t many similarities because they see the world in other ways and need various things from music. And like I said, loads of Drake fans go to other schools. I believe Kendrick’s fans are mostly black and male and serious about hip-hop. I believe Drake’s fan base is black and white, there are men and ladies, some take hip-hop seriously and others are pop fans and should not care about hip-hop. It’s definitely larger than Kendrick’s fan base, and I do not think losing the battle cost Drake many fans.

There appear to be three camps amongst Drake fans. Some imagine that Drake won the battle. Some people think Drake lost the battle but they do not care, they still love him. They probably think that Kendrick and the many others attacking Drake prove that Drake is the man, or as my kids would say, prove that he’s the primary character. And some people don’t really care about the battle. Kendrick won this battle, but that does not imply Drake fans stopped loving him. When he releases his next album or goes on tour, they will likely be there for him.

He texted: It’s hard to take someone seriously who raps “name of all time, name of the best” after someone kicked ass so hard, lol.

I texted: This is how we feel because we’re on Kendrick’s side of the cafeteria. But things are different on Drake’s side. They see the world in another way. It’s almost as if something bad happened to Trump and it doesn’t really affect his standing together with his base because their love just isn’t based on logic and liberals are going apoplectic – how can that not make you rethink your like to Trump? But love is illogical. People love Drake and a loss won’t change that. It’s not the time for Drake to drop recent music since it’s Kendrick’s summer. The school is his. But over time it’ll calm down a bit and Drake will release a catchy track that makes people want to bounce and return to doing his thing.

He texted: That is smart.
