R&B singer Usher was dragged over the coals by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on his AC 360 show last night. Anderson put Beyonce, Usher and Mariah Carey on blast for performing for the son of murderous dictator Moammar Ghadafi. Even though the performances occurred years ago, the trio are back in the spotlight due to the Libyan protests. It's a shame that our black artists are recognized for accepting blood money from a murderer when white artists reportedly declined to perform. Cooper reached out to the reps of all 3 stars but they politely declined to comment. That says a lot about our people and the greed that permeates the recording industry. Usher was spotted leaving the Beatles themed 'Hard Days Night' hotel in Liverpool, UK, today to head to the city's Echo Arena to perform the next night of his OMG tour.
Multimedia personality and socialite LaLa Vazquez was seen leaving her NY hotel yesterday wearing cobalt blue Christian Louboutin peep toe heels. She was on the way to watch her husband, Carmelo Anthony, play his first game as a member of the New York Knickerbockers. The Knicks easily manhandled Milwaukee by a score of 114-108. They won't have it so easy when they travel to Miami on Sunday to play LeBron James and the Miami Heat who are on fiya right now.
Make-up free Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh are seen leaving a police training center in Miami, Florida where they are training for their television series 'Charlie's Angels' filming in Miami. Inside the facility, the girls were seen donning full S.W.A.T Team gear and doing push-ups while being yelled at drill team style. I'll be watching just to see Minka and Annie kick butt.
