Kudos to rappers Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane and So Icey Entertainment for giving back to their community.
Did the volunteers come straight from the club to help out?
Earlier today, Debra Antney and Mizay Entertainment with DTLR and Hot 107.9 held their annual Turkey Giveaway Dinner Event in Forest Park, GA. People of all ages lined up getting Turkeys from all of the artists signed to Mizay including Waka Flocka Flame, Frenchie, Cartier Kitten, Muff Mommy, Cartel, Kebo Gotti, as well as Gucci Mane stopping by and helping some of the senior citizens by carrying turkeys and vegetables to their vehicles. Here’s a few photos, and there’s more on my site.
According to online reports, an actor who had bit parts on TV’s Ugly Betty and the movie Step Up 3D, has allegedly murdered his own mother with a samurai sword while screaming Biblical passages.
According to People.com, a black woman identified as Yannick Brea, 55, was found dead in her Brooklyn apartment early this morning.
There are unconfirmed reports that Brea was beheaded.
A male was taken into custody and transported to Kings County Hospital, and while the NYPD is not yet releasing the alleged suspect’s name, WPIX-11 in New York reports he is Michael Brea, 31, and that he used a samurai sword to commit the crime.
Police confirmed to EW.com that the weapon used was a sword.
A black woman who told U.S. President Obama she was “exhausted” defending him and waiting for him to bring about economic change, has lost her job.
Velma Hart, who told Obama she was worried about her family’s financial future, was laid off from her job as the Chief Financial Officer of a veteran’s service organization this week.
“I’m an American veteran, and I’m one of your middle class Americans,” Hart said in September during the Town Hall meeting. “And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for. And deeply disappointed with where we are right now.”
Her supervisor denies laying Hart off because she stood up to Obama.
“It’s not anything she did,” said Jim King, the national executive director of Am Vets. “She got bit by the same snake that has bit a lot of people. It was a move to cut our bottom line. Most not-for-profits are seeing their money pinched.”
He declined to say whether others in Hart’s department had also been laid off.
“Velma was a good employee,” he told a writer from the Washington Post. “It was just a matter of looking at the bottom line and where could we make the best cuts and survive.”
The tea party movement seized upon Hart’s comments to Obama as proof that Obama was losing touch with his hard core supporters – African American voters.
Despite chasing the black vote, Obama and the Democrats suffered a humiliating defeat during November’s midterm Congressional elections.
Rapper Nicki Minaj was seen rocking a rainbow colored lacefront wig and floor length faux fur coat as she headed into the MAC store in Times Square, NYC to promote her album, Pink Friday, today. I had no clue Nicki had the clout to draw crowds like this.
This video was shot 2 months ago but it is just now going viral on YouTube thanks to the combined efforts of Gawker.com and the Huffington Post.
In the video, a courageous young lady goes off on a flasher after he rubbed his junk up against her on a New York subway train. The unidentified woman wondered aloud why the man was rubbing up against her when there was so much space on the train. “Then I see his penis out!” she screamed.
At the mere mention of penis, all the manly men on the train whip their cell phone cameras out and start shooting.
The extremely embarrassed flasher implores the lady to retract her accusation since it wasn’t his penis clad in a condom that she saw.
“Oh, you’re getting f*cking arrested! I’m not leaving your side,” she responds. “My plans are done for the night. I’m escorting you to the police station. Oh, yes! Oh, f*cking yes!”
Burlesque dancer and studio singer Beyonce Knowles hosted the launch event for the Lorraine Schwartz “2BHAPPY” Jewelry Collection, held at the LAVO Night Club in NYC last night. After a night of partying, Beyonce’s curly hair went limp. Noticeably missing from the party was Beyonce’s husband, rapper Shawn Carter, who rarely supports his wife unless he’s sharing the spotlight too.
R&B crooner Usher was spotted wearing a full beard while shopping near his home in West Hollywood, CA yesterday.
Socialite Paris Hilton caused quite a ruckus when she bent over to pick up her bunny rabbit while shopping at Madison store in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday. That’s when the paparazzi realized that Paris was wearing nothing under her sheer stockings.
Industry icons from Rolling Stone to Russell Simmons has heaped praise on Kanye West during his dramatic comeback. But not everyone is impressed with the emotionally disturbed rapper.
One of those people who isn’t impressed, the legendary producer Quincy Jones, was rightfully insulted when US magazine tried to compare him — a gifted musician and symphony orchestra conductor — with Kanye West who plays on a drum machine all day.
Us: Kanye West is similar to you in that he’s the producer everybody wants to work with in the last decade….
QJ: How man? No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgement or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None.
When asked what he thought of Kanye, the 77-year-old producer of Michael Jackson’s Epic album Thriller, said, “I don’t think about him much. He’s a great rapper, but there are a lot of good rappers.”
