aka ‘Andre 3000′ of the legendary rap duo, Outkast is stepping back into the world of fashion
Outkast’s 20th anniversary tour sparked a bit of creative vision in Dre’ that led him to rock several custom jumpsuits, which displayed thought-provoking messages on his chest.

Now that the tour is over, Andre is taking his iconic jumpsuits to Miami, where he will collaborate with filmmaker Greg Brunkalla and painter Jimmy O’Neal for an exhibit presented by SCAD and the SCAD Museum of Art.
As a versatile artist in music, performance, fashion design, and film, André 3000 Benjamin has his finger on the pulse of contemporary culture. Benjamin’s identity as an artist took flight in the pages of a sketchbook he kept as a teenager, and he later rose to international fame as a member of the six-time Grammy-Award-winning musical group Outkast—the first hip-hop act to earn the coveted Album of the Year Grammy for 2004’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which sold more than 11 million copies. Benjamin has been a longtime supporter of SCAD, particularly through the university’s Collaborative Learning Center, an interdisciplinary learning community that facilitates sponsored projects between SCAD students and external partners.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta aired the 4th episode of it’s explosive 7th season last night (November 30, 2014).
This week’s episode, entitled ‘Bury The Ratchet,’ solidified my ‘beauty vs. beasts’ theory as the ladies each met in ‘teams’ to discuss last week’s blowout between Cynthia Bailey & Porsha Williams.

We also got a new perspective on Todd Tucker’s involvement in Kandi Burruss’ business matters, via her ‘diva manager’ Don Juan, and we were also treated to more of the same ol’ Kenya Moore drama as the former beauty queen begged, pleaded and shed a few tears to get sympathy from RHOA viewers for Apollo Nida lying about ‘everything’.

Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta recently took a moment to give thanks for surviving airing her dirty laundry on national television.
On the week of Thanksgiving I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to share a few words of gratitude. Oprah Winfrey once said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Despite what is going on in my personal life, I am so very thankful for all that I have. For it has been in these dark moments that I have learned some very valuable lessons and discovered my purpose.
Parks also utilized her Bravo blawg to share her thoughts on the huge blowout between Cynthia Bailey & Porsha Williams that we witnessed during the final few moments of episode 3…
