Picture this: you’ve just put in four long years at a college, studying hard and sleeping maybe twice a week. Now the all-nighters and exams are finally behind you, because it’s GRADUATION DAY, BABY!

Do you get a little annoyed, or are you pumped to hang with the likes of Diddy, John Legend, Jill Scott, or other famous faces? It’s probably a mix of both!

What fun is a major showbiz party without sharing it with some delectable arm candy, right?
I’m flashing back to the year 2005 and the celebration of one of my thirty-something birthdays with my twin sister. We were in Madison Square Garden for an Alicia Keys concert, and that evening’s opening act was John Legend.

Well, I’m here to tell you that with the release of his latest album Love in the Future and its tour, John Legend has not only arrived, but he’s giving us all the reasons to pray to the music gods that he stays around for a long, long time.
The new film 12 Years A Slave just opened in limited release and is already among the frontrunners for the 2014 Academy Awards.
