A sharp-eyed loyal reader Danielle wonders if Chris Brown’s concubine, Rihanna, is subliminally coming for singer Rita Ora by wearing the same wool Trapstar beanie skull cap that Rita wore in London 2 weeks ago.
We all know Rihanna isn’t stable, and that she uses subliminal imagery and words to get under the skin of her rivals, such as Karrueche — Brown’s other woman. It’s obvious that Rihanna feels some kind of way about Rita Ora being positioned to steal her spotlight by RiRi’s former mentor, Jay Z. But does she think she can spook Rita by wearing a hat? She’d better get back in the studio!
What is wrong with these effeminate girly men who play for the Los Angeles Lakers? Don’t they understand that being traded is a part of the game? First Lamar Odom acts like a cry baby about being traded to Dallas, and now Derek Fisher is boo-hooing after being traded to the Rockets.
As you probably know, the Lakers traded Fisher to Houston in return for Jordan Hill on Thursday. It seems that, just like his former teammate Odom, Fisher has taken his sudden trade very hard. Reportedly, even his former teammates, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol couldn’t console him.
Bryant, Gasol and Andrew Bynum all said they spoke to Fisher over the previous three days since the Lakers traded him, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Rev. Al Sharpton plans to hold a non-violent rally in Sanford, Florida to demand justice for 17-year-old Miami resident Trayvon Martin, who was stalked and gunned down by an overzealous neighborhood watch volunteer on Feb. 26.
Sharpton announced through his social networking websites Twitter.com and Facebook that he plans to be in Sanford on Thursday to hold a rally to call for the arrest of Zimmerman.
The rally is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the First Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Many believe Trayvon was the innocent victim of a police wannabe who shot Martin in cold blood and then claimed self defense.
On Friday, Sanford police chief Bill Lee released eight chilling 911 calls describing a scuffle, a man wailing and pleading for help, and a gunshot. The first call was made by Zimmerman, who said he spotted a “suspicious person” in his gated neighborhood. Zimmerman was told not to pursue Trayvon, but he ignored that order.

Another 911 call was made by a witness who stated two men were fighting on the ground. The caller stated “the guy on top” was wearing white. Zimmerman was wearing a white t-shirt that night. Trayvon wore a grey hoodie.

Can anyone see teddy bear Sean Kingston attacking a woman?
According to Radar Online:
Beautiful Girls singer Sean Kingston has been served with a civil summons and complaint in connection with a lawsuit to be filed alleging he was involved in the gang attack of a woman, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. Kingston, a friend and touring mate of Justin Bieber, was served Friday night with the legal docs, linked to an incident that allegedly occurred after a concert in 2010 in which Kingston opened for the Baby singer. The California private investigator who served the 22-year-old singer (and one of his bodyguards) as they arrived in Los Angeles on a flight from Miami, told RadarOnline.com he was at the airport on official business, and had no other comment.
Maybe Sean can sell off some of his gaudy jewelry to pay his attorney’s fees.
Teen idol Justin Beiber, 18, covers the 10th Anniversary of Complex magazine’s decade in print issue. Bieber appears beaten to a bloody pulp on 2 covers of the magazine. Inside the issue, he talks about growing up in the public eye and his next album, Believe, which drops this Spring.
Bieber also talks about his haters, his very public relationship with singer Selena Gomez, and how he refuses to hide their relationship the way Sean Combs hides his pseudo-singer concubine, Cassie.
“There’s no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us. It’s like, ‘You take this car, and I’ll take this car, and then we’ll meet up at the spot. Then, you go in this door, I’ll go in this door. We’ll end up crossing ways. You get back in this car. We’ll cross over, do a James Bond. You go through the kitchen. I’ll go through the back area. Then we’ll meet in the dressing room and see each other.’ At that point, it’s not even a relationship. You’re just hiding from everyone. That’s unfair and unhealthy, man.”

Singer Rihanna spent a busy weekend in NYC, where she celebrated her grandmother Dolly’s birthday. The 23-year-old Bajan superstar was spotted at JFK airport signing autographs on anything her fans handed her. I don’t blame them. If I saw Rihanna, I would ask her to sign a McDonald’s paper bag if I had to. We don’t know how much longer she will be with us (God forbid). Her autograph might be worth something later on. Please continue to keep Rihanna in your prayers.

After repeated calls for the release of the 911 audio in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Sanford police department finally released the audio on Friday.
Trayvon’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton of Miami Gardens, arrived at Sanford City Hall to hear the tapes.
Martin broke down and “cried like a baby,” when he heard his son pleading for his life on one of the audio tapes.
“You hear a shot, a clear shot, then you hear a 17-year-old boy begging for his life,” said Natalie Jackson, one of the family’s attorneys. “Then you hear a second shot.”
The first shot can be heard in the distance — “a warning shot,” said attorney Ben Crump. The second shot is much closer.
“It is shocking when you hear these 911 tapes,” said Crump. “It was far worse than they thought it was going to be.”
In all, the Sanford police released 8 audio tapes — 7 calls placed to 911 by nervous witnesses, and one call from the shooter, 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who claimed he killed Trayvon in self-defense.
“This is an insult to this family,” attorney Natalie Jackson said. “This was not self-defense, this was not manslaughter, this was murder.”
“How can you claim self-defense and you are the aggressor?,” said Trayvon’s distraught father.

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign will be in full swing when he touches down in Atlanta today. While here, the president will attend 3 ritzy high-ticket fundraisers targeting obscenely rich African Americans who can afford to pay a minimum of $2,500 per ticket.
Obama’s haul from black supporters is expected to total $5-$6 million dollars by the time Air Force One takes off from Fort McPherson later tonight.
From ABC News:
Seventy-five supporters will mingle with the president at an as yet undisclosed private Atlanta residence, where tickets were $10,000 apiece. Then he’ll join a star-studded concert featuring CeeLo Green at the Tyler Perry Studios, where at least 1,000 Obama fans are expected in the crowd, an official said. Each paid $500 or more.
Before returning to Washington, Obama will visit the home of actor and director Tyler Perry, who’s hosting the ritziest party of the night at $35,800 per head. At least 60 people are expected to attend to toast the president.
All proceeds from the six events benefit the Obama Victory Fund, a joint account that funnels cash to the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee, the official said. The first $5,000 of an individual’s contribution goes to Obama while the remainder — up to $30,800 — goes to the DNC.
The president’s events raise to 40 his total attended for the year and 107 his total for the cycle. The first lady’s event is her 17th fundraiser of the year.
