Alicia Keys shares official video for “Love Looks Better”

Alicia Keys has released her latest video for “Love Looks Better” and it couldn’t have looked more fun! In the video, she goes through New York City’s streets, picks up jeans and Timbs by trading in her dress, and gives a resonating performance by standing on top of a parked truck.    

“Love Looks Better” was released earlier this month, before ALICIA and the debut was lived up to the Grammy Award-winning singer’s talents. On September 10, Alicia opened up the 2020 NFL, by performing a catchy track. This was accompanied by an announcement by NFL about a commitment of $1 billion to support Black businesses and communities. OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder co-produced the track.

Before its release, several cuts were released from ALICIA such as “Good Job,” “Perfect Way To Die,” “Time Machine,” “Underdog,” and the Miguel-assisted “Show Me Love.” Alicia Keys also shared a visual for “Wasted Energy,” after the release of the new album, and the former featured Diamond Platinumz. She also premiered a performance version of “3 Hour Drive” with SiR via COLORSAbout three months ago, Alicia Keys went head-to-head with fellow R&B icon John Legend in a Verzuz battle on Juneteenth.

Alicia has recently spoken about her choice to perform “Love Looks Better,” with the objective of driving social change:

“We are already seeing the blatant injustices that are going on around us. As an artist, I’m always thinking about how can I use my platform to further racial equity. This fund is one of the answers and our goal is to empower Black America through investing in Black businesses, Black investors, institutions, entrepreneurs, schools and banks in a way to create sustainable solutions.”

Breonna Taylor’s mom speaks out following grand jury decision: “The system failed Breonna”

Breonna Taylor’s mom speaks out following grand jury decision: “The system failed Breonna”

After the grand jury decided to charge just one officer for the incident that led to the death of Breonna Taylor, her mother Tamika Palmer does not have a lot left to say. Breonna Taylor was fatally shot at her own home by police officers who raided her apartment.    

On Thursday, Palmer took to Instagram to share a picture of her daughter Breonna Taylor that an artist beautifully drew. “It’s still Breonna Taylor for me,” she captioned the post. She posted a red broken heart emoji along with two blue hears, with the hashtag “#ThesystemfailedBreonna.”

It was on Wednesday that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron made an announcement about only one of the three officers being charged in the investigation of Taylor’s death. Former Louisville detective Brett Hankison has been charged with with three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree — for “blindly” shooting into multiple nearby apartments.

Jonathan Mattingly and Myles Cosgrove- two other officers who were involved in this fatal incident- were not charged. “The death of Breonna Taylor is a tragedy,” Todd McMurty, Mattingly’s attorney, said in a statement. “But these officers did not act in a reckless or unprofessional manner. They did their duty, performed their roles as law enforcement officers and, above all, did not break the law.”

Hanikson was charged and released from the Shelby County Detention Center, following the indictment. In Cincinnati, Attorney Stew Matthews told WXIX that Hankison does not plan on pleading not guilty to his charges during his arraignment. “I don’t think the evidence will support the charge,” Matthews told the outlet.

After the announcement made by Cameron, Ju’Niyah Palmer, Taylor’s younger sister, wrote a heartwarming message to Breonna Taylor on Instagram. 

Along with the letter, she posted a throwback picture of herself with Taylor, which was taken after her graduation. She captioned the photo, “Sister I am so sorry.” Palmer also took to Instagram stories to talk about the decision made by the attorney general. “Sister, you was failed by a system you worked hard for and I am so sorry,” she wrote. “I love you so so so so so much.”

VANESSA BRYANT Sues L.A. County Sheriff OVER LEAKED PHOTOS AT HELICOPTER CRASH SITE

VANESSA BRYANT Sues L.A. County Sheriff OVER LEAKED PHOTOS AT HELICOPTER CRASH SITE

L.A. County Sheriff and his department are being sued by Vanessa Bryant, as she claims that she suffered severe emotional distress because of them. These claims are related to her allegations of the deputies taking personal cellphone photos of the bodies of Kobe and Gigi Bryant at the scene of the fatal helicopter crash.

The lawsuit stated that “no fewer than 8 sheriff’s deputies at the crash site, pulled out their personal cell phones and snapped photos of the dead children, parents and coaches. The deputies took these photos for their own personal gratification.”

The lawsuit alleges that the photos were the subject of conversation within the sheriff’s dept, as the deputies showed the pictures to their colleagues though it served no investigative purpose.

In the lawsuit, it was noted how the photos were exposed. For instance, a deputy showed the pictures to a woman he was trying to impress at a bar and the bartender overheard the conversation and called the sheriff’s department to blow the whistle.

Vanessa stated that Sheriff Villanueva then attempted to cover the whole issue up by going to the Sheriff’s substation, which responded right after the crash and informed the deputies that upon deleting the photos, they would not face discipline. The suit also claims that it was destruction of evidence.  Moreover, Villanueva allegedly did not inform the families about the pictures and they found out through media coverage.  

The lawsuit finally claims that the Sheriff was not straightforward with the family and Vanessa is now constantly worried that the photos will be leaked … “Ms. Bryant feels ill at the thought of strangers gawking at images of her deceased husband and child, and she lives in fear that she or her children will one day confront horrific images of their loved ones online.”

Unspecified damages, including punitive damages, are being sought in the lawsuit.
