What's up, BlackPlanet! My name is Nazneen, but most people just call me Naz. I'm a professional writer and graduate of The University of Chicago. I currently work as an Assistant Editor and writer for NewsOne.com and contribute to HelloBeautiful.com, Elev8.com, and TheUrbanDaily.com.
I'm an aquarian and I definitely live up to it. I think too much and usually that causes me to never actually accomplish anything I set out to do. But the beauty of being an AIR sign (thanks, BP friends ;)) is that you go with the flow. I love traveling and most recently spent 4 months in Bombay, India teaching in a slum school and doing field research.
I can be a huge nerd but I LOVE LOVE LOVE celebrity gossip. Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, and Rihanna are my not-so-secret guilty pleasures. Thanks to my awesome job, I get an opportunity to interview some of my favorites. Keep checkin the sites for new stuff!
I love meeting new people so definitely drop me a line or hit me up in the comments section. Thanks for checkin out my page!

The end of the year is fastapproaching and we're all likely taking a moment to absorb the craziness we've witnessed in 2009.One of the most interesting stories to come out of '09 was the major hodown happening in the entertainment world. After Lil Wayne sat down with Miss Katie, who could have known he'd impregnate two women?! Not to mention, Tiger Woods and all his draaaammaaaa.I hit the streets to ask the women of NYC whose lollipop they'd rather lick...CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO!!It is... (continue reading)
