Anita Baker was honored with the Legend Award during the second annual Soul Train Awards ceremony held November 10th, 2010 in Atlanta.
The Legendary honoree was treated to a serenade from Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway and more during the show but it was backstage, where Ms. Baker shared her thoughts on today’s music industry and up & coming female artists.
Anita Baker discussed backstage how she rejected pressures from her label back in the day to change who she was, including suggestions that she weave her signature short doo. She also spoke highly of today’s artists (like Chrisette Michele, Erykah Badu etc.) who reflect individuality and true talent.

Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta tweeted the hot new photo above yesterday as she was on her way to a wedding and she’s looking “smoking hot” right? Practically glowing… as most pregnant woman do.
But besides Kim glowing and looking fab, word on the curb is that Kim, who bragged recently on the show about being a registered nurse, is doing the one thing most well-informed pregnant women would never do… SMOKE!
Kim was caught on camera taking a smoke break while watching an NFL game a few weeks back… a HUGE no-no being that Kim is three months pregnant!
The photo was taken in Atlanta on November 7, outside the Georgia Dome. As you recall, I exclusively confirmed Kim’s pregnancy on October 29th, while Kim and her 25 year old baby daddy, Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann, formally announced the pregnancy a month later on November 22nd.
The evidence is clear that Kim was still smoking (at least during her first trimester). *sigh*
Let’s all say a little prayer for Kim & Kroy’s innocent little embryo. Maybe if Kim’s put on blast, she’ll buy a patch and quit the nicotine.

Celebrity photographer Derek Blanks shot Nicki Minaj’s “larger than life” personality for the December/January cover of Ebony Magazine.
The cover is reminiscent of actress Tasha Smith’s shoot, where Derek recreated the “Attack of the 50 foot Woman,” but this time instead of Atlanta being the backdrop, it’s New York and the larger than life image is meant to represent Nicki “Crushing the Competition.”
Check out the behind the scenes footage from the shoot below: Continue Reading…
