Skylar Introduced As Miss Bombshell

Wassup, Wassup, Wassup folks! I am your girl Skylar A. also known as Miss Bombshell from Urban Manner on 90.3 The Core . I am a chick with a love for fashion, music, gossip, and celebrity drama. I’ve been causing a riot on this planet called earth for twenty years and it all started in Newark New Jersey on October 28,1992. I decided to take my talents and big mouth to Rutgers University. As you probably guessed I am a journalism and media studies major who practically worships Wendy Williams because she’ s so real (well despite her boob job).

When it comes to my loves I’ll be happy to break it down to you. I am a lover of great music because it gives my heart a heart beat. I refer to my favorite genre of music (Hip Hop and R&B) as she because a lady gives life to those in need. As did Hip hop give life to those urban communities who needed a voice in the main stream media during the livest era (the 80s). My all time favorite song comes from the dopest rapper alive Commons I Used to Love her .

Just like Hip Hop fashion gives me life, It serves as my vision. Fashion allows me to see the world differently and reminds me to never accept the norm and dare to be different. I am a chick who loves glamour but is more than happy to throw on some sneaks with a skinny pair of sweats and rock out like LL cool J. Fashion is just one of those things that will always break barriers.

But the two things that runs blood through my body is celebrity drama and celebrity gossip. And I guess that’s the reason why I was born. I thrive off of giving people the scoop on others who live a sloppy life (such as Lamar Odom, and Amanda Bynes) . But to wrap this up I’ll leave you with this . Miss Bombshell is just another side of Skylar, she gives you the real scoop on what’s going on and never holds back. So when you want the absolute truth you know where to find me.
