#men? The Ten ComMANdments

VIBE VIXEN: How do you know when it's time to leave a relationship?

Tye: Leaving a relationship is never easy, especially if you're in "love" or the "sex" is good. Women have a special gift from God, which is female intuition. If honored, female intuition will give answers on when it’s time to leave a relationship that is no longer serving you or even nudge you prior to getting into a bad relationship. The real question is when you "know," will you listen…or will you just ignore it?


What's the best way to get over a long term relationship once you've made the decision to walk away?

The long answer is in the book, but the short answer is: love yourself more. Take care of yourself and put yourself first. Remind yourself of the reasons you left and don't fantasize about “the good times.”  Relationships always seem better than they really were once you've made a decision to break away. Don't trick yourself; no more stalking your ex's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and break all contact. If you don't break all contact, you are setting yourself up for an on again/off again emotional rollercoaster ride.


What are the 3 top things women should look for in a partner?

1) Honesty- His words and actions always line up.

2) He has a firm plan and a vision for his future and he's working the plan (not just talking about it).

3) He is emotionally attractive, meaning he can open up and communicate with you freely without a lot of mental or emotional blocks that keep you from getting to know the real him.

What's the best way to take a relationship to the next level; specifically from boyfriend/girlfriend status to marriage?

Most women want to be able to eventually progress their relationship with a man they are very serious about. The key to this is in how you create value for yourself in his eyes. The man that you want to progress the relationship with must see you as extremely valuable, otherwise it will be impossible to progress to the next stage.


How should women use your book as a guide? Is it something women can refer back to from time to time?

This book was created as a purse or pocket relationship “bible” to reference whenever feeling weak, confused or torn on what to do with men and answers the top questions asked about love and relationships. The 10 ComMANdments set forth in the book are instant, go to reference points to keep women from experiencing heartbreak and misery within their relationships.


How is it different from other relationship books?

This book is extremely different; mainly because it gets to the root of what has been going wrong within generations X,Y,Z and Millennials, that root being feminine energy.  It addresses the new hashtag world of dating and gives straight to the point, no nonsense answers.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
