The YBF: The Young Black & Fabulous

The YBF: The Young Black & Fabulous is an online black celebrity gossip website which has saved me lots of money on my predominantly "white" magazine subscriptions. It's "People" magazine online for black people with a bit of humor. ... And it does what Essence does in a world of all white magazines and entertainment ... it's just great to see some color.

Natasha Eubanks is the writer & editor of the site, the most famous African American entertainment/gossip blogger in the world. The YBF is the product of her obsession with all that is Hollywood and celebrity. THE YBF blasts all that is fabulous and foolywang with over 30 million readers joining in on the ish talking.

I wrote Natasha today just to inform her about my love of her website. Even as much as I expressed my love and continued success of her site, I had to write, "One last thing ... I'm a Caribbean girl (from St.Lucia although I live in Vermont), so I have a soft spot for Rihanna. Please take it a lil' easier on her!"

Within twenty minutes (sent via her Blackberry), I got this message from her, "LOL. Thanks so much Nyree. And how lucky are you to be from such a beautiful place?? St. Lucia is on my vacay spot list. :) Thanks Again!"

More on THE YBF:
"THE YBF kicked off June 29, 2005 during a serious shortage of black celebrity gossip blogs. It was one of the first sites of its kind to hit the net. But now with the never ending amounts of new black celebrity gossip sites, THE YBF is still one of the largest and hottest. Word of mouth traveled fast for a reason. It’s the perfect mix of gossip, enteratinment, and swagger. The focus is fashion, fabulousness, gossip, and foolywang. And if gossip were fashion, THE YBF would be couture. No celebrity is spared. THE YBF is where YOU live the fabulous life. Everybody else worth talking about is living it….are you?" - Source The YBF.com
