Dating advice from Chris Brown and Rihanna

Dating advice from Chris Brown and Rihanna

Chris Brown and Rihanna have gone from publicly canoodling to tweeting about the harsh reality of romance in less than three months.

In February, the two were seen happily sitting together in the audience at the 2013 Grammys, confirming weeks of speculation that they were once again, at the very least, pretty friendly. Shortly before, Rihanna explained to Rolling Stone that she and Brown had repaired their relationship after he assaulted her in 2009.

Since then, onlookers have had a hard time keeping track of their relationship status.

Is this the last go-round for Iron Man?

Is this the last go-round for Iron Man?

WHAT'S HAPPENING MYRON? This weekend I went out to see "Iron Man 3." I usually don't make plans to go see movies such as this, it just sort of happens when you have kids. That accounts for how I've sat through versions 1 and 2.

However, after nearly two hours of non-stop action, a ton of overpriced concessions and a restless two year old, I must say that I wasn't disappointed at all.

Without giving up the plot or ending, this particular installment of the "Iron Man" series to be sort of a wrap-up, as if there won't be an "Iron Man 4." But of course we all know better, huh?

Music Fest had Memphis jumping

Music Fest had Memphis jumping

Memphis In May is upon us, and so is the wet Memphis weather, turning it into Memphis in MUD! But that didn't dampen the spirits of the thousands who attended the music festival. Big Boi (former member of Grammy Award winning Outkast.) took me back by singing songs like Hey Ya, and Players Ball. He had the crowd dancing and singing the to his hit songs.

The legendary Mavis Staples, who put on a stellar show, spoke about her dad, Pop Staples, and how he influenced her career. She is a considered a Memphian although she is from Chicago because her group, the Staple Singers, are part of the Stax family here in Memphis. She sang her songs and hits like I Take You There by the Staple singers. A favorite from Saturday's performances would have to be the Roots. The message they give and that funky Jazz style they have makes you want to follow them no matter where they are touring. The Roots have won a lot of Grammys with their smooth style.

Competition for BET is good news for TV viewers

Competition for BET is good news for TV viewers

WHAT'S HAPPENING MYRON?: Four cable networks broadcast directly to the African-American community as of today – BET, TV One, Aspire and Centric. More are on the way.

Could Bob Johnson have imagined this when he started BET way back in 1981? Maybe, but I say probably not. However, as society changes, so do viewing habits and choice of content.

For years, BET was the central source of programming for content geared toward the African-American community. It was once the only entity of its kind fully owned by an African American. Things changed in 2005 when Johnson sold the company for a cool $3 billion. Yes that was BILLION with a "B".
