People born on the Year of the Horse

People born on the Year of the Horse – Constantly on the Move

2014 The Year Of The Horse

2014 The Year Of The Horse


The Horse is by nature a gregarious creature and those born under this sign are generally very popular with a wide circle of friends. Given as they are to “horsing around,” they tend to be the life and soul of every party! For centuries the Horse has been the symbol of freedom in cultures all around the world, and this is the case in China, too. Those born in the Year of the Horse do not take kindly to restrictions. Independence is their lifeblood: they need to feel free to go where they please, when they please.

1990 – Metal Horse (24 years old in 2014)

The element of metal gives the Horse an extra dose of arrogant stubbornness, but also adds a degree of resolution that may be lacking in Horses generally. The truth is that Metal Horses need an enormous amount of stimulation to keep boredom at bay. If Metal Horses are kept busy doing something they find interesting, then they’ll work incredibly hard and achieve great things. On the other hand, if they find themselves bored or stuck in some kind of a rut, their behavior can get very wayward, almost out of control. That’s when Metal Horses are liable to simply take off for distant shores or another job, another relationship, whatever it is that can hold their interest for a while.

1978 – Earth Horse (36 years old in 2014)

This is a very different type of horse altogether. The element of earth adds a weight and gravity that other Horses simply do not possess. Earth Horses have a strong sense of responsibility that is definitely not shared by their brethren. At the same time, the element of earth lends a slowness and cautiousness that is not merely uncharacteristic of Horses, but can actively work against the positive attributes of Horse nature. The ego may not be so large, and the fickle skittishness not so obvious, but Earth Horses’ sense of fun and adventure is not so well developed wither. Those born under this combination may well be wise and astute, but on the down side, they are not especially exciting Horses.

 1966 – Fire Horse (48 years old in 2014 – Female Fire Horse is Hinoe Uma)

This is a decidedly powerful combination. “Flamboyant” may be one way of describing it, “loud” could be another. The least you can say is that this type of Horse is never backward in coming forward. Those born with this mixture of animal and element are naturally charismatic, always pushing to the front and inevitably finding themselves in the position of leader.

However, they do not really understand tact or diplomacy and are more than likely to speak before they think or simply ride roughshod over others. Although Fire Horses have very magnetic personalities, they do have rather large egos to match the scope of their ambition, and this can sometimes get in the way of their own progress.

1954 – Wood Horse (60 years old in 2014)

The element of wood has a calming influence on almost all animals, and this is particularly true of the Horse. Those born under this combination are a less unruly lot than their brethren and will actually attempt to cooperate with other people. Underneath this external helpfulness, there is still an independent-minded creature that does not handle taking orders very well, but the ego is considerably tempered. Like all Horses, wood Horses have a need to constantly experience new things, but at least they make an attempt to leave their affairs in order before moving on to new pastures. However, Wood Horses do not have quite such quick and accurate perception as other Horses and must, therefore, be careful not to be “taken in.”

1942 – Water Horse (72 years old in 2014)

This type of Horse is especially self-centered, and at this worst, he can show an almost total lack of consideration for others. Water Horses love their creature comforts and enjoy dressing in very bright, stylish clothes. The elusive nature of water, coupled with the easily distracted nature of the Horse, means that those born under this combination have an extra-short attention span. Needing to be on the move all the time, they find it difficult to stay anywhere for long. Water Horses make up for having itchy hooves by being extremely charming, and they are usually forgiven for their shortcomings. They have a way of making their lack of consideration seem rather daredevil, and consequently, to coin a phrase, they “get away with murder.”

TGT2013_7‘What’s up New York!” yelled Tyrese then he hooked up his iPhone to Keyboard player’s laptop and started to sing his highest charting single “Sweet Lady.” You can see the look on Genuwine’s face, ‘oh, no, you didn’t’ he unplugged it and connected his iPhone and the first bars of his debut song “Pony” made audience roar.

D’Angelo Returns to TV With New Track at BET Awards

D’Angelo at BET Awards 2012


D’Angelo Returns to TV With New Track at BET Awards

At Sunday night’s BET Awards、D’Angelo played his first television performance in 12 years. The R&B singer kicked off the performance with his hit “Untilted (How Does It Feel)” before joining his band behind the keys and jumping on to a new track, the funky “Sugar Daddy.” Stars including Common and Beyonce clapped along to D’Angelo’s spirited “Sugar Daddy” as the singer leaped, kicked and screamed.

D’Angelo is set to perform on July 6th at New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, and he will play Jay-Z’s Made in America festival in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend. Questlove recently revealed D’Angelo has recorded around 30 new tracks over the past few years, and he hope the singer will release the new material soon.

Frankie Beverly featuring Maze were honored with the lifetime achievement award, and they were serenaded with performances by Tyrese, Faith Evans and Joe.

Kanye & Jay Z

2012 BET Awards: Beyonce, Chris Brown, Kanye West and Jay-Z take home trophies; Whitney Houston’s mother gives emotional tribute

West, who was up for seven awards, was the top nominee. Beyonce was the second most nominated act with six. She won video director of the year (along with Alan Ferguson) and best female R&B artist and thanked the genre and her female influences.

“I fell in love with music by listening to R&B. It’s the core of who I am,” she said, giving special thanks to Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and “Whitney Houston, my angel.”

When she lost video of the year to Jay-Z and West, she playfully hit her husband and laughed. The joking continued: Moments later, as West was giving his acceptance speech, Jay-Z interrupted him and said: “Excuse me Kanye, I’m gonna let you continue, but …,” and the audience erupted with laughter, recalling West’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards speech a few years back.

Chris Brown was also a double winner. Kevin Hart — who hosted the awards last year — also won for best actor, Big Sean was named best new artist and Wale and Miguel’s smooth hit “Lotus Flower Bomb” won best collaboration.

The tone of the night fluctuated frequently, as the show shifted from hotly anticipated performances to solemn moments to irreverence. Usher performed his groove “Climax,” and Nicki Minaj sported a blonde wig with pink tips as she performed the songs “Champion” and “Beez In the Trap,” which featured 2 Chainz.

Cissy Houston’s tribute to her late daughter was the emotional highlight of the BET Awards.

Mariah Carey opened the tribute with memories of her friend. She was followed by a moving number by Monica. Brandy, heavily influenced by Houston, sang two of the late singer’s hits. Chaka Khan blazed the stage with “I’m Every Woman,” which Houston remade. Gary Houston, Whitney’s brother, also performed.

Whitney Houston‘s mother gave a rousing performance of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” that left the crowd in tears, including Beyonce and Melanie Fiona.

The live broadcast featured some of the biggest stars in the music world, including Jay-Z and Beyonce (who won best female R&B artist), Nicki Minaj (the recipient of the best female hip-hop artist award), and Usher.
