B. Smith Twerkoholic contest

B. Smyth is a hot new artist whose infectious dance track “Twerkoholic” is heating up dancefloors on both sides of the Atlantic!

I was sent this video to post and at first I thought, “Oh, just another Twerk Song.” But this kid can really sing! As adults, we might not understand the whole “twerking” fad, but twerking has been around forever. This is nothing new.

Check out the official lyric video below. And if you’re into the twerking thing, B. Smyth aka @Therealbsmyth on Twitter is holding a Twerk Contest on his Twitter Page.

In 2006, Ciara‘s manager Phillana Williams and her husband Frase lost their newborn baby daughter. The baby girl was born almost 3 months prematurely. Yet, for over a month, she bravely struggled to live. Her fight for life was chronicled by her mom in an email that was sent out to friends.

That email, which I still have, was one of the most emotional and heartbreaking I have ever read. I am happy to say that Phillana and Frase, a music producer, are pregnant again! Congratulations to them. They are a great example of an entertainment industry marriage that works. 🙂
