it's electric!

Curlfriend Janelle Monae's sound and style are the perfect storm of innovation, creativity and talent. The video for her latest single, "Electric Lady" is an amazing display of these elements. Hanging out with her naturally gorgeous Electro Phi Beta friends, she lets her curly tresses loose, in a clever juxtaposition of advanced technology (amazing product placement by Samsung) against vintage automobiles and the ageless, feel-good concept of friends partying with friends.

We're too excited to see Janelle like this - in all of her natural queendom and electricity, free flowing fro and southern swag. We love and salute you Electric Lady!

Check out the video below. 



curvy curlies all up in a man's world

There's so much yummy, caramel, chocolate, curvy curly goodness in Get On Up, I had to take a moment to express my excitement about this film! Get On Up is the James Brown biopic, starring Chadwick Boseman, curvy girl, Octavia Spencer, curlfriend, Viola Davis and curvycurly,  Jill Scott.

From all of the accounts I've read about this film, Chadwick embodies a surreal enthusiasm and spirit of the Godfather of Soul. CGNC is thrilled to acknowledge Mr. Brown's soulful contribution to American history, and to salute what is certain to be a fascinating portrayal of his life, as brought to the big screen by these amazing artists.

Please support Get On Up, set for nationwide release, this Friday, August 1st. Check out the trailer below:


acte II

Olanna and Ashley Renée make up the dynamic, southern bred, CurvyCurly, opera-singing duo of ActeII! These beautiful ladies were recently featured on "America's Got Talent" and their performance blew the judges away. Their voices and personalities are as lovely as the curves and curls they sport - naturally.

CGNC is proud to celebrate these sAngin curlfriends! I love to see sistas doing something out of the box! Check out a clip of their perfomance below:
