The Latest In Music News: Jay-Z Takes to Twitter to Address Tidal "Failure"

Twitter has been in an uproar today after Jay-Z took to his own Twiiter account to address the concerns the general public has made about Tidal. There is talk that Tidal  is a failure  after only being in business for one month. I wouldn't  call a bump in the road after being in operation for only a month a failure. Businesses, sucessful businesses, try new things all the time. Sometimes  these ideas work, and sometimes  they do not. While I  have yet to subscribe, because  I  more of a let-them-get-the-kinks-out type of person, but I  support  the concept. Read Jay's tweets below.

Whew! This situation reminds me of the bumpy road Oprah hit with OWN, but her cable channel has gained level footing after a revamp.  What do you think? Is Tidal a fail?

The Latest in Fashion News: Reebok x Melody Ehsani Spring 2015 Ventilator Pump Sneaker Collaboration

Melody Ehsani and Reebok are back at it again. This time with a revamped version of the Ventilator  sneaker for it's  25th Anniversary.

The official  release reads: 
“Each sneaker features the original luxe python leather from the first Reebok Classic x Melody Ehsani collection, a unique texture that takes inspiration from a creature which embodies Melody’s definition of a Classic woman; a sweet juxtaposition of beauty and intelligence. A lace lock accessory featuring the designer’s signature take on the evil eye brings a sense of individuality and creativity to the look, while a gum outsole adds visual interest and a fresh finish to the upper’s rich tones. The Blacktop Pump is updated with a hidden interior wedge heel for a more feminine, streamlined silhouette, while the Ventilator stays true to its retro runner design to coincide with the sneaker’s 25th anniversary this year.”

The soft launch is today at and at the Melody Ehsani brick and mortar location in Los Angeles, California at 9 p.m. PST. The major release is set for May 1, 2015 and available at selected retailers.

I am feeling the new wedged version. Cute, no?
