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.

  • mb213

    LALA! Hey gurrrllll HEYYYYYY!

    :hug:

    Love the shoes

  • pinksghetti

    In Usher, Mariah (love her) and Beyonce's defense (kind of) some people have a harder time turning down a lot of money then others do. Personally I would be scared being around the Ghadafi people but maybe they were scared to say no *shrug* Minka Kelly looks ok without makeup but Annie looks boring. I like the color of Lala's shoes but not the fringes.

  • Lady_L

    What is it exactly that LaLa is doing these days? I'm confused...

  • http://www.modelmayhem.com/kimip kimip84

    usher looks terrible

    LaLa I am loving those shoes!!!

  • Terry .W

    I saw and heard what Anderson Cooper said. One celeb OR their handlers that rep them was even so quick to say "no comment" in regards to if they would consider giving the money back from their performances - Ignorance must be bliss! SMH!

  • Terry .W

    The other 3 did not respond to Anderson Coopers inquiries or put out any statements yet

  • Anna

    ~~~~~~~~~
    Would we be surprised to find out that Ush, MiMi and Bey don't even really know who/what Ghadafi is/does? Do they know what the price of gas is, or that we hit the 5,000+ of dead solders in this never ending war. If someone is offering a million dollars for a hrs. performance, asking for their resume' is not an option for some. Speaking of money, how the heck can Rhi afford to turn down 1/2 a million dollars?

  • Daisy

    I think Minka is pretty I love Fri Night Lights. Her and D Jeter make a cute couple.

  • pointhimout

    yeah, i get what anderson's saying. it's almost like being ride or die for one rapper when he repeatedly goes to jail, but you throw stones at all the rest for clearly doing the same thing. I get it. blood money, blood interviews, blood shout outs, etc.

  • vetta

    I don't know who Minka or Annie(even though she's looking down)are, but they look pretty.

  • pointhimout

    the celebs change when they get to hollywood, almost like they're living up to the surroundings now that they're out there. idk.
