Black men, White woman.. Why we have it all wrong.

Its come to my attention on the inter-webs that recently there has been a lot of talk about Black Men using White Woman as a some sort of symbol of success. Your man get's to a certain status and "he's gon' leave yo' ass fo' a white girl" (Kanye West). But I think there are a few misleading details and don't get me started on how politically incorrect this all is. There really is much to be said about this utterly misleading stereotype and I just wanted to clear some things up. Im gonna make this quick. Firstly, the rappers and actors and athletes that American TV will have you thinking are some of the richest people in the world really dont make shit. Lets face it, media makes them famous but fame doesn't equal money, so already we have this skewed sense of success through exposure. Also, we can't judge what we can't see so most of the ACTUAL rich people who AREN'T in entertainment are not photographed with their primarily BLACK wives walking down the street by paparazzi. So I have compiled some photos of some of THE RICHEST BLACK MEN in the WORLD and their wives. Enjoy.

Starting with someone we all know and love or hate, Sean Combs. Although P.Diddy has a strong hand in entertainment, he is RICH because of his many business ventures. But lets be clear, he still makes 1/32nd of what the richest black man on this list makes. His long time gf Kim Porter may not be his wife but is the mother of most of his children and is obviously a ride or die chick.
Robert L. Johnson founder of BET was married to Shelia Johnson for over 30 years. They're divorced now, but while he was making those big bucks, he had the strength and encouragement of a strong black woman with him all that time.  

Mo Ibrahim and his wife Hania Ibrahim are BOTH millionaires. Mo, who is actually a billionaire made his money through an African mobile phone company and philanthropy.  
Patrice Motsepe and wife Precious Makgosi Moloi. Patrice is a mining BILLIONAIRE. 

Mike Adenuga-BILLIONAIRE. His wife, Titi Adenuga.

This really is the short list, but I wanted you to get an understanding of something. A real woman, one who stands by your side and helps you to achieve your goals and her own, a woman who is understanding, supportive and CHALLENGING-THOSE are the trophy wives. Those are the women who are WORTH something. And these women come in all shapes, sizes and COLORS. Don't let the media and trifflin' fools make you think you aren't worthy. And that's in all cases, not just this one. Speaking of cases-I rest mine.

Kalae Nouveau - Live from Red Hook - Full Episode from Kyle Gaughan on Vimeo.

I wish I would have shared this on here much sooner but I often forget about my blog.. im sorry that i have forsaken you my dear.. I always do somehow.. Im bad at commitments.. even internet ones.. I come from a fickle generation.. I hope you can see through my wishy washy ways and into my solid center.. I want to relay positivity and love to the world but often the internet makes me feel negative and hateful. GRRR. I will make more music to counteract this animosity and then get back online to share it with my "friends," only to garner more irrate feelings to shove back into my peace loving core as inspiration for more music.. Heres to the cycle! Lets hope something good comes of it.. peace, love and light.. exoh KALAE

Little Bit - Lykke Li

I was watching Lykke Li's video for "I follow Rivers" and I sort of hated it (not the song, the video- sorry Tarik Seleh) So I googled a good, cheap, innovative video of hers and decided to share. No big budget, no pretense, just creativity. ENJOY

Nouveau and Kaye.. WOMAN UP

Hello loveez, Its 2013 and time to turn a new page in the book that is Kalae All Day----i mean, NOUVEAU ;) I'm very excited to announce that me and Charlene Kaye will be releasing a music video tomorrow for the highly anticipated "Woman Up" Remix by David Scalia. This song is a woman power anthem that EVERYONE can relate to. Me and Charlene Kaye met at Tinderbox, an all female music festival founded by musician/singer/songwriter Alyson Greenfield, and hosted at the legendary Knitting Factory in BK. It was only natural that that much kick ass estrogen would combine into a ball of fiery, goddess, sister hood music that's high power, fun and digestible. Here's some of the hoopla happening on twitter as the anticipation rises! Bianca Gordan says: "It blew my face off when you guys played it live at Rockwood in 2012!" SnitchShadow4 Says: "Cannot WAIT to see it!! Woman Up is always on my list of girl power feel-good songs :D" Kens Says: "I always listen to Woman Up when I'm feeling down and I adore the live version with Kalae, so I'm excited!"
Here's a little on Charlene Kaye: It’s been all systems go for Hawaii-born, New York-based Charlene Kaye since releasing her sophomore album “Animal Love,” which reached #15 on the iTunes pop charts and has been hailed as “a tour de force of Kaye’s songwriting talents and her voice” (Pop Stereo) and “fluent in classical piano as [it] is in glam rock” (The New Yorker). In addition to relentless touring and playing CMJ and SXSW festivals, the ambitious songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has earned enthusiastic reviews from PopMatters, VH1, Huffington Post, NPR, the Village Voice and more for her soulful voice, fierce guitar playing and electrifying live shows. Since moving to New York in 2009, she has shared bills with the likes of Big Boi, Minus the Bear and Holly Miranda and has amassed over a million views on her YouTube channel. She was the supporting act for musical theater/internet sensation Team StarKid on their last two nationwide tours, which sold upwards of 25,000 tickets each run and whose final show was at a sold-out Roseland Ballroom in New York. Her single “Dress and Tie” featuring good friend Darren Criss of Glee, was featured in a promo for NBC’s Chuck, had extensive play on radio stations nationwide and was selected as official boarding music for Delta Airlines. With a rapidly growing fan base, new recordings and more touring on the horizon, Kaye shows no signs of slowing down, picking up steam even before she leaves the ground. exoh The Marvelous Nouveau
