Black, gay purchasing power results are in!
Earl Fowlkes, President of Center for Black Equity, presented the Community Marketing & Insight’s African American LGBT Community Survey® 2014 at the 7th Annual LGBT Marketing Conference last month. I’m personally satisfied with the results. Kudos to the 78% of us (of the 2,000 people surveyed) who are boycotting Chik-Fil-A for their homophobic views.
Hot Rod, Fly Young Red, Sampson McCormick, Kyle Goffney, and so many more came out to Blatino Oasis this weekend. The 8th annual “gay and bisexual men of color getaway & retreat” in Palms Springs, California features the annual NoRal Apparel Fashion show and Kings Supporting Kings Awards. Here’s all of the Instagram snaps I could round up from the event.
“Don’t get mad because she thinks she’s worth more than your little minimum wage pay check honey!”
In 5 minutes YouTuber Adrian Xpression reads you lessor girls from sea to shining sea about his fave and why she is worth the prices for her joint ‘On the Run Tour‘ with hubby Jay-Z.
“When I look to my right and I see Barbra Streisand is charging people $1,500 plus $75 processing fee for a ticket, then I look to my left and I see classic rock bands charging people $600 for one ticket, I don’t see why y’all are pressed about Beyonce charging you hoes $200+.”
Have you seen the Forbes report saying the joint tour tickets are 44% higher in cost than when the couple tours separately?
With an average ticket price of $342.67 on the secondary market, tickets for Jay-Z & Beyoncé: On the Run are 90.16% higher than prices for Jay-Z’s solo Magna Carta tour last fall, when Jay-Z tickets were $180.20 on average. They are also 16.55% higher than tickets for Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Show world tour from last year, when Beyoncé tickets were priced at $294.01 on average.
Jay-Z has toured with industry giants including Eminem and Justin Timberlake, but neither has been as big of a draw as his wife. When Jay-Z toured with Eminem, tickets averaged $279.50, which is 16.55% below the current rate for Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets. When Jay-Z toured with Justin Timberlake, tickets averaged $187.98, or 82.29% below the current rate to see music’s ultimate power couple in concert.
All in all, Adrian feels Beyonce should charge what she’s worth. Do you agree with his opinion? Watch below.
Dare I say it … I like this video.
Featuring a guy named “Cordell” and directed by Christian Strickland, Porsha Williams from ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ may have a silent hit on her hands. Press play above and comment below with your thoughts.
She really said “Fix it Jesus!” Lawd! We also learned the new single is coming really soon. “Dropping my single in two weeks/The Pink Print album a movie.”
Press play and twirl with me.
It’s her first performance of her first song EVER.
Porsha Williams packed out El Morocco in NYC last night (May 2) for her ‘Flatline’ performance. Word on the curb is her video will release via VEVO on Sunday, May 4th. No word on when a vocal coach is scheduled though.
