The Grammy-award winning vocalist broke many musical barriers, especially being the first R&B/Pop singer to collaborate with a rapper on the song, “Friends,” featuring Eric B & Rakim.

Jody Watley Life Musings and Paradise

“A Night of Timeless R&B” in Philadelphia on November 15, 2014 was a lot of fun. Doing the new show and it’s blend of classics making them feel new again and the what’s now of PARADISE is energizing. The ladies are enthralled with new addition Paul’Micael Bair handling the male leads of SHALAMAR ™ reminiscent to some of a young El Debarge mixed with Justin Timberlake – while for my ears having his own developing style. It’s really hit packed and energetic from start to finish which ends with some of my own signature solo hits. I met some super people like Brian Walmer who is continuously supportive of the new music, Patty Jackson from WDAS and radio personality Muthaknows. Put your hands in the air doesn’t need much prompting. Good vibes all around.

Once arriving home, I was beyond ecstatic to spend a week with my daughter Lauren who was visiting from the bay. Cooking, just hanging out in our lightweights aka pajama’s or comfy clothes  – getting to watch “Scandal” together, talking politics, current events, pop culture..dining out, shopping for makeup at our favorite spot and just overall spending time being together. I’m so happy that we have the relationship we do and that I put the time in from day one to be present – and remain so. I cherish time spent with family and friends. The week was capped off with dinner at our favorite Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse with my Mom and one of my nieces. We shared so many laughs – the only person missing was my son Arie, we had a creme brûlée’ for him – this is life!

Typical Mom snapping pictures of my baby girl - so regal, beautiful and smart..neither of my children like taking pictures but they always indulge me!

© 2014 Jody Watley I’m just a typical Mom, when I’m not the artist – snapping pictures of my  stunning baby girl always in awe of  HER – so regal, beautiful and smart..neither of my children like taking pictures but they always indulge me. Lauren was having her makeup done at NARS – she rarely wears makeup. We were served champagne, which felt very chic – while we enjoyed the process,, stocked up on new colors and enjoyed mother daughter time.

Celebrating one of my closet friends choreographer, dancer Rosero McCoy was also on this week’s schedule. Dancing with Rosero and friends (including my other best friend Wallace Butts) was another moment to reflect on the meaningful things in life – and the people we have it our lives. There was one moment we were all dancing and I really took it all in – the moment, the joy, the smiles and thought this is what life’s all about. Not fair weathered or superficial people who come and go at a whim but the people you know who will be there for you, appreciate honesty without holding it against you and always ready to roll through life’s ups and downs, not social climbers – just friends. Laughter, music, dancing, good food, quality people and friendship – indeed another slice of paradise.

Jody Watley Talks Music and Business on New Venture Who’s That Lady

I appreciate the fact that this new website is focused on positivity and interviews; not gossip on women in music, television and film. They’ve been incredibly supportive of “PARADISE” on Twitter and other social media; I wanted to show my support to Belinda James and the Who’s That Lady Entertainment team.  If you’re tired of gossip based media and trust me, I understand the commerce and need for a bit of entertainment and gossip here and there; however there should also be room for other mediums such as this – support these alternatives.
