Beyonce was spotted leaving a doctor's office on the upper east side of New York city with her 2-month-old daughter Blue Ivy yesterday. Everyone knows that Beyonce will do anything for attention. Everyone, that is, except her family and her adoring Stans. This morning I received an email from loyal reader Munchosgirl. She sent a video which she says explains why Beyonce smothers the infant's head under a layer of blankets and clothing -- something babies don't like at all.
Muncho claims Bey covers the baby's face to protect her from all the camera flashing and screaming by the paparazzi. So why doesn't Beyonce leave the child at home -- or better yet, stay home with her? Don't doctors make house calls? I think we all know the answer to that question.

ABC News has obtained police surveillance video of George Zimmerman's arrest the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood. Despite his lawyer's claims that Zimmerman was beaten to a "bloody mess" by the 17-year-old, who broke his nose and slammed his head on the sidewalk -- the police video shows no evidence of such injuries.
Zimmerman is shown hopping out of the back of a police cruiser with no assistance from the police. He walks under his own power, and holds his head down, despite the report that his nose was supposedly broken.
In light of this new video footage, Zimmerman's supporters, which includes Casey Anthony's former attorney Jose Baez, now say that Zimmerman doesn't need physical injuries to prove a case of self defense.
The tragic death of Trayvon Martin due to racial profiling has dominated headlines around the world. But there is another death due to a different form of profiling that has gone virtually unnoticed.
Like Trayvon, Anna Brown was also young and black. She died at age 29 due to the indifference, and gross negligence, of an emergency room doctor who denied her the basic right to seek medical treatment because he formed the opinion that she was a drug seeker.
On Sept. 20, 2011, Anna Brown showed up at St. Mary's hospital emergency room complaining of acute pain in her ankle and knee. She had sprained her ankle and had visited the emergency room earlier complaining of pain. X-rays of her knees were negative and she was given a prescription for a painkiller.
But Brown knew something was terribly wrong with her. She refused to leave the emergency room. She told hospital security that she could barely stand due to the excruciating pain in her legs.
Brown was literally dragged from St. Mary’s Hospital by police and thrown into a jail cell because the emergency room doctor told police she was a drug seeker. Brown died less than an hour later of a pulmonary embolism -- blood clots that traveled from her legs. This is the same condition that took the life of rapper Heavy D.
Brown, who was homeless, fit the doctor's profile of a "drug seeker" because she was young, black, poor, and in pain.
Once you are profiled as a drug seeker by a doctor or a nurse in the emergency room setting, there is almost nothing you can do or say to change their opinion of you. You will be denied basic health care, and you may lose your life as a result.
If you think what happened to Anna Brown can't happen to you, read on.

During a press conference in London for the new movie 'Battleship,' a rude reporter had the nerve to imply that Rihanna was unhappy in her personal life. The reporter asked if "a certain Mr. Kutcher" would be making the trip to London for the movie's premiere.
First of all, Rihanna has never confirmed the silly rumors that she was dating Ashton Kutcher.
But besides that, the "Talk That Talk" singer was simply stunned at the reporter's assumption that she was unhappy without a man in her life.
After a brief pause to collect her thoughts, Rihanna replied, "Wow, how disappointing was that question."
A moderator jumped in, but Rihanna continued, "I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."
Rihanna should have told the rude reporter that she and her personal assistant, Melissa Forde (pictured above), are very happy together.
Watch the verbal exchange after the break.

Did a reporter for ABC News inadvertently leak the existence of secret audio of a 911 call made by 17-year-old Trayvon Martin the night he was shot to death in Sanford, Florida?
On Tuesday night, several ABC affiliates aired video footage of an ABC7 news report which claimed the FBI had in its possession an audio of a 911 call made by Trayvon moments before he was shot by overzealous neighborhood watch person George Zimmerman.
Less than an hour later, that video footage was mysteriously scrubbed from the Internet.
We now know that the man who quit his job in order defend George Zimmerman to the national news media barely knows him.
Joe Oliver, a former CNN anchor, has been making the rounds of cable news and TV talk programs defending Zimmerman, the man who gunned down unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, Feb. 26.
it is not uncommon for former or current professional talking heads to offer their "services" to victim's families as "family friends" whenever a major news story explodes into the national conscience the way Trayvon's shooting has.
You would think that the media would be more forthcoming about the fact that they are interviewing one of their own. But they often don't because they don't want to jeopardize their access to the victim's family.
On Tuesday night, 'Last Word,' with host Lawrence O'Donell and his guests The New York Times' Charles Blow and The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart, ripped the lid off of Oliver's claims that he was a "close friend" of Zimmerman's.
More details are emerging about the hours and days following the tragic shooting death of Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, Feb. 26.
According to Good Morning America, the lead investigator in the case didn't believe George Zimmerman's claims of self defense.
The lead homicide investigator in the shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin recommended that neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter the night of the shooting.
But Sanford, Fla., Investigator Chris Serino was instructed to not press charges against Zimmerman because the state attorney's office headed by Norman Wolfinger determined there wasn't enough evidence to lead to a conviction, the sources told ABC News.
Police brought Zimmerman into the station for questioning for a few hours on the night of the shooting, said Zimmerman's attorney, despite his request for medical attention first. Ultimately they had to accept Zimmerman's claim of self defense. He was never charged with a crime.
Serino filed an affidavit on Feb. 26, the night that Martin was shot and killed by Zimmerman, that stated he was unconvinced Zimmerman's version of events.
Zimmerman, 28, claimed he shot Martin, 17, in self defense.
There is also word that Zimmerman's father is a retired magistrate judge who may have used his influence to get criminal cases against his son dropped.
