And so it begins… One day after Trayvon Martin’s killer launched a website seeking public donations to pay his legal bills and living expenses, someone shot up an empty Sanford police department cruiser.
The shooter probably vandalized the cruiser to send a message to the Sanford PD which bungled the case by letting George Zimmerman walk free the night he killed the unarmed teenager.
Some people only need a reason to start rioting and looting. I think the state prosecutor will give them that reason sometime this week.
Singers Monica Brown and Brandy Norwood performed their single “It All Belongs To Me” on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ this morning. I wish Monica would have have canceled her appearance on the show. ABC News has joined CNN and Fox News in distorting the facts to support Trayvon Martin’s murderer George Zimmerman.
Brandy is pictured above leaving the ABC studios where Good Morning America is taped. She’s wearing a large city tote bag by CÉLINE and Christian Louboutin platform heels.
Monica is promoting her seventh studio album, New Life, which is in stores today. Please go out and buy up every New Life CD you can, because I’m hearing rumors that Monica and Brandy’s record label is using Monica to push Brandy. I also hear that they plan to market Brandy’s album more than they marketed Monica’s new CD.
Watch a video clip of Monica’s appearance on GMA after the break!
Years ago I wrote a post about Khloe Kardashian dating rapper Young Jeezy. Literally minutes after I published that post, an email from Jeezy’s publicist landed in my Inbox. She wanted me to know, in no uncertain terms, that Khloe was not dating Jeezy.
If you weren’t at least 12-years-old in 1992, then you won’t remember the insane hype leading up to the premiere of Michael Jackson’s “Remember The Time” short movie.
The Internet was not easily accessible to everyone back then. But it was difficult to ignore the massive marketing machinery behind the short movie for Michael’s 2nd single off of his multi-platinum Dangerous album.
“Remember The Time”‘s music video was loosely based on Eddie Murphy’s hit comedy movie Coming To America (1988).
Leading up to the world premiere, MTV and BET teased us by airing clips of the behind the scenes magic that went into making this 9-minute spectacle directed by John Singleton. When “Remember The Time” finally premiered on MTV and BET simultaneously on Feb. 22, 1992, it was one of the longest music videos ever, clocking in at just over 9 minutes.
RTT starred some of the biggest names of that era: including comedian Eddie Murphy, supermodel Iman and NBA star Magic Johnson, who 1 year earlier announced he was infected with the HIV virus and retired from the NBA.
The music video dance sequences were choreographed by Fatima Robinson. Fatima also choreographed the opening credits sequence of Queen Latifah’s hit TV show “Living Single”, as well as scores of rap music videos in the 80s and 90s.
What struck me the most when I first viewed this video back in 1992 were how much lighter Michael had bleached his skin, the awkward kiss between him and Iman, and the Egyptian dance scenes, which I still love!
As predicted, Angela Corey, the Hispanic “special prosecutor” in charge of the Trayvon Martin vigilante murder case will not convene a grand jury to decide if there is enough evidence to charge George Zimmerman with murder.
Corey, who is a state attorney from Jacksonville, told Nancy Grace last week that she didn’t need a grand jury to tell her whether to charge Zimmerman. She later added that her decision would not affect the outcome of her investigation.
But it was obvious to anyone from the start that Corey had no plans to charge Zimmerman with anything. The evidence in this case is overwhelming. Zimmerman, who has a history of violence against women and police, gunned down Trayvon after racially profiling him as he walked back to a friend’s house from a convenience store on Feb. 26th.

Blue Ivy’s parents Beyonce, 30, and Jay-Z, 43, were spotted while on holiday near Nikki Beach in St. Barth over the weekend. Beyonce made news last week when she launched her personal Tumblr page featuring pictures which were supposed to clear up the pregnancy rumors. But the pictures only succeeded in muddying up the waters even more. The pictures that I saw on another blog shows Photoshopped pics of Bey’s belly, or pics of her in silhouette. clearly she thinks her Stans are as stupid as she is. It doesn’t matter how many pics Beyonce posts on her Tumblr page: she was never pregnant with Blue Ivy. Now, what she should do is cut the crap and put up the pics of her surrogate.
Two suspects are being held in the shooting deaths of 3 men in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jake England, 19 (left), and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested and charged in the homicides. Two other men were injured in the shooting spree which occurred in the span of one hour early Friday. The 2 injured victims are unidentified and remain hospitalized under heavy security. All of the victims were black. The shooters are white.
One of the gunmen, 19-year-old Jake England, reportedly took to his facebook page to express rage that his father was killed by a black man two years ago. But police say there was no connection between the 5 victims and the death of England’s father.
Troubled singer Rihanna spent her Easter holiday getting drunk on board a yacht in Sydney Harbour. The 24-year-old Bajan chilled on a boat cruise with “Battleship” cast mate Brooklyn Decker (not pictured) and the rest of the cast. It wasn’t long before RiRi got bored of the niceties and went looking for some liquid refreshment. She was photographed swigging from bottles of beer. She reportedly got so drunk that her able assistant, Jennifer, had to assist her off the boat. Do better Rihanna! Photo: Blue Wasp/Grey Wasp/Splash News
This season’s “Basketball Wives” isn’t doing too well in the ratings for VH1. We hear that the show’s producers plan to totally revamp the cast and add new groupies who are willing to split wigs and toss more drinks next season. Desperate for ratings, the producers begged current cast member Evelyn Lozada to stage a public dust up with another cast member — but she refused.
Lozada visited Miami strip club G5 over the Easter holiday to host a party. Lozada, 41, a rumored bisexual, turned up at the club with one of her side chicks, and they both partied like rock stars in the VIP with famed Miami stripper Tip Drill (pictured above with Evelyn).
If you recall, Tip was the stripper who made headlines when she lost her grip and fell off the pole at King of Diamonds strip club earlier this year. Tip was rushed into surgery at a local hospital.
Rappers and other ballers who appreciate Tip’s unique pole skills took to Twitter.com to wish @origtipdrill a speedy recovery. Rapper @Drake tweeted: “Praying for my homegirl Tip Drill one time.”
Tip took a brief hiatus from the pole. She bides her time shooting music videos (such as Nicki Minaj’s “Beez in the Trap” featuring 2Chainz).

NBA superstar Dwyane Wade is one lucky guy. Not only is he dating one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood — Gabrielle Union — but she’s not even pressuring him to marry her like some selfish celebs we know.

Inside, she opens up to JET® Magazine’s editor in chief Mitzi Miller about her long term relationship with Wade, her budding interest in marriage—a staunch pre-requisite to having children—and the drama brought to her doorstep by her NBA superstar boyfriend Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siovaughn Wade.

9-time Grammy winner Mary J Blige probably never thought she would become a punch line at this stage in her career. Unfortunately, Mary now finds herself the laughing stock of the industry, after Burger King inadvertently released an unfinished commercial featuring Mary that went viral.
What could have possessed Mary to jump up on a table top and sing the immortal words, “crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, French dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla“?
Whatever her motivation was, you can bet Mary regrets signing on to do that commercial.
Now, Mary’s fans are uploading their own YouTube videos spoofing Mary’s Burger King ad.
And Hot 97 in New York is holding a ‘Chicken Idol’ Crispy Chicken battle, and inviting celebrities such as ‘Love & Hip Hop’s Yandy Smith to do their own Mary J impression.
