Top 9 Most Unacceptable First Dates

There are certain first date no-no's that can tell you whether a man is a keeper or not, just ask Tamar Braxton. The first place a man takes you is the biggest indicator on his intentions, his efforts and what's in his pockets. Take a look at 9 of the worst (most unacceptable) first dates your suitor can take you on.

1. Fast Food Restaurant

You should never step inside a fast food resturant on your first date. And if he expects you to, you should probably delete his number immediately.  It's not an uppity thing; it's a self-respect thing. Unless he flew you all the way to Paris just to eat McDonald's, there is no justification for you to grub on a Big Mac and fries for your first date.

2. Movies

There's really no way to get to know someone better by sitting next to them and watching them watch other people. What can you really say without being hushed to death? Besides, it's extremely high school. After a few epic outings, sure. But as the first chance to really get a feel for one another? No way.

3. Club/Lounge

Although the idea of VIP at your favorite night spot may sound flattering, make sure he knows that standing in a pool of wasted club-goers isn't cool for the first go-round. Simple: Make a quick exit.

4. His House

Serial killer, much?  You are just getting to know this man, so steer away from creepy (and hella lazy) date. You kick it with your friends at home, not with a stranger as a first date.

5. Shopping Mall

Unless he plans on taking you on a shopping spree, going to the mall isn't a great place to spend quality time getting to know each other. Considering most men and women aren't great shopping partners anyway, this outing will probably be the last date outing.

6. Bar

You should never go somewhere, where liquor is heavily involved (See #3). Impairment of judgement can have you making bad (real bad) first date decisions. The only thing he will probably know is what kind of drink you prefer and if you are a light weight or not.

7. Strip Club

It's classless as a first date. Trying to get to know someone while he gets a lap dance by a stripper he's paying is degrading on your part and disrespectful on his. Strip club dates are for those comfortable with each other not those that barely know each other.

8. Funeral

If someone ever asks you to attend a funeral with them and you aren't past your first 10 dates, delete their number. Not to sound insensitive but what are the benefits of going to a funeral to pay your last respects to someone you've never met and to console someone you barely know. There are none.

9. Group Dates

Grow up. You don't need approval or supervision on how a first date should go. It's a recipe for disaster, but if you're willing to walk the plank, don't say we didn't warn you about the sharks at the bottom.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
