Wow guys!  The last episode of “Empire,” holy cow!  Amazing.  Loved it!  Only problem was it ended without telling me MORE!  Like, what happened to Serayah/Tiana?  She is amazing, PLEASE tell me she is coming back on the show…

And what happened with Elle?  Are they ever going to tell us if the security guard saw what happened?  Maybe that will be part of the whole grand Anika double-cross they mentioned in the previews?  Oooo she is so, ew…

And I figured out why Lucious is still with Anika, before tonight’s episode I realized that it was the whole thing with her FATHER, the doctor, and how Lucious needed him to verify that Lucious was in good health so his big IPO could go forward!  Omg, it sure seems like they just told us that this is why he is sticking with her and giving her what she wants (for now).  Now he needs to open up to Cookie and tell HER that’s what’s going on, otherwise, he is going to lose her forever.  Don’t you think?  Something that good doesn’t come along often, or at all, in life, Lucious, don’t mess it up!

And damn, that Jamal, amazing.  The whole scene at the white party where he is singing HIS song was awesome.  When they were singing the song in the booth, it didn’t sound good, but when he sang it out like that with the crowd, it was the bomb.  I expect it’ll be in all the clubs soon for real.

Check out the video here!

And his scene with his sweet little baby girl, omg, so real.  Loved to see him bonding with her, giving her the security she is going to need with her momma gone missing.  And he is starting to feel what it means to be a dad.  So cool.  So family.

What about the fashion?  Those outfits for the white party, very cool. Definitely not something I see around much.  I like that, stepping out of the usual to bring us something new and different.  The guys jackets were very east Asian or something.  Cookie’s white dress was cool too, clean and striking.

I love that Hakeem finally spoke his piece with his mom, at his dad’s prompting (a very wise man in that moment).  They are now starting to heal the wounds of his abandonment and her separation from her littlest baby.  This is real good.  And Hakeem and Jamal are finally coming back together too, and finding out what brotherhood is really all about.  Love, support, caring.  Even though the two are very different, maybe they have more in common than they sometimes remember.  Their music is their love and their passion, and when they feel that together, they are joined.

Hopefully Lucious can drop whatever baggage he has over Jamal’s sexual orientation and listen to his own advice, love your family, let them be who they are.  It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen though, does it?  I guess that is one of the many things that makes this show so REAL.

Talk to me people, what are YOU thinking?

Empire Gossip: Ooo That Voice Serayah!

Empire Gossip, framed

Serayah, Serayah, Serayah, o.m.g. you truly have the voice of an angel.

Ok guys, I just had to do a quick post on this.  If you are watching the new show “Empire” on Fox you will know what I am talking about.  And if you aren’t, you’ve got to check it out on http://www.fox.com!

Serayah plays Tiana Brown, a young singer who is managed by the Empire label.  She’s got a spicy role, like the rest of the show, that keeps you on your toes.  There’s no boring and predictable up in this house!  But what blows my mind is when she sings; her voice is amazing.  Her tones are awesome.  She is a huge asset to this show because not only can she sing (and I mean, boy, can she sing), but she is also beautiful and unique, and a good actress as well.  And her hair is cool, it’s like “BOOM!”

You can check her out in this video:

at the one minute mark of play you can hear her singing.  Wow.  While in this clip she’s only singing for a few seconds, you can hear her ability well.  The show’s episodes have more of her singing and you can watch those online at http://www.fox.com.  I had to post about her, she is a beautiful young lady with a real gift and I hope she goes far and stays grounded if she does.  She is crazy awesome.

Oh, and I also wanted to give a shout out to another of the show’s actors, Bryshere Gray (or to the show’s writers) who must have read my blog post on “Empire’s” pilot episode.  In a recent episode Bryshere talks about being “Iconic” (you know, like “The Slice Iconic”…) 😉  Hey, hey, thanks for the mention!  Every time I hear it, it’s pretty cool.  🙂
