Is it possible that one woman can make Kanye West look visually unappetizing? Tongues are wagging about Kanye's unwashed appearance and overall unappealing image. At one point Kanye was considered something of a sex symbol to a small circle of women (and men) who appreciated his flair for fashion. But lately even those women (and men) are shaking their heads in disbelief at Kanye's slowly declining sex appeal.

President Obama's reps confirm that he donated the modest sum of $5,000 to his own reelection campaign for the first time, according to Politico.com.
The president is feeling the heat from challenger Mitt Romney whose campaign coffers are flush with cash.
"On its own, what I gave won't be enough to surmount the unprecedented fundraising we've seen on the other side," Obama wrote in an email to supporters this morning. "But we have always believed that there's nothing we can't do when we all pitch in. That includes me."
Obama hopes that his personal donation will inspire his dwindling supporters to donate more cash to his campaign.

I would be remiss if I didn't point out that Ava's two-toned hair was heavily influenced by style setter Tameka "Tiny" Harris's long tresses. Scoff if you want, but Tiny is influencing personal styles all over the globe!

R&B crooner Usher Raymond filmed 'The X Factor' in New York City, then he dined with Maxwell before jetting off to Los Angeles, where he was spotted shopping with his old lady, Grace Miguel on Sunday. The couple did some window shopping on trendy Robertson Boulevard before roaring off on Usher's motorcycle.
I blame Hip Hop for this. Yes, that's a female thug being hauled into a NY police station after she was arrested for a NY subway stabbing that left one man injured.
According to Splash News, police arrested a pack of drunken young female thugs on the downtown No. 6 train after they stabbed a 63-year-old man who had the nerve to ask them to keep their noise down, police said. The man was on his way to work as a vendor near the World Trade Center at about 6:15 a.m., a law-enforcement source told The New York Post.
Rihanna, 24, was spotted emerging from the sparkling clear waters of Portofino, Italy on Sunday. The troubled beauty enjoyed a day of snorkeling and diving to see the underwater Jesus statue with her friends.
Certain undercover gays choose to stay in the warm comforts of their closets until they are forced out. That seems to be the case with Jennifer Lopez's dancer/boyfriend, Casper Smart.
Last week, Casper was famously photographed going into a gay peep show above a sex toy shop in a seedy neighborhood in NYC. According to a drag queen who frequents the peep show to turn tricks, men go up to the 2nd floor where they discreetly insert their manhoods into holes in the wall to be "serviced" by other males.
According to the drag queen, a tongue is a tongue, and men can't tell the difference between a female tongue and a male one.
A recent development has put a new twist on the Usher and Maxwell teh ghey rumors. As you know, crooners Usher and Maxwell have been the subjects of gay rumors for years.
According to my very credible west coast connect, Maxwell recently broke up with his rumored male lover. I can't say any more than that because a child is involved (and the kid can read). But is it just a coincidence that Usher and Maxwell sat down for a private intimate dinner in New York last week?
rejected a wedding because the couple was black. Yes, kids, racism still exists in America -- especially in the South. This is not news.
Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson planned to hold their wedding in a predominantly white church in Mississippi that they are not members of.
They sent out the invitations to their wedding, but the day before the wedding their pastor informed them that the predominantly white members of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs did not want a black wedding performed there.
"I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day," said Weatherford."
Pastor Stan Weatherford performed the wedding in another church. In response to the media attention, a few church members expressed dismay.

Wade showed off his increasingly eccentric personal style of dress.

Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, who is serving a prison sentence for domestic assault, paid for lavish gifts for his girlfriend Shantel Jackson's birthday party in Las Vegas.
Shanel is used to the finer things in life, and she expects to keep benefitting from Floyd's generosity even if he's in prison. Floyd knows that he must keep his gold-digging girlfriend happy if he doesn't want another baller to step in.
Shocking video footage showing a 9-year-old sociopath beating, kicking and biting infants and toddlers may result in criminal charges against a daycare owner.
The graphic video footage was captured by a surveillance camera inside the Kiddie City Daycare center in Vicksburg, MS. The unidentified 9-year-old can also be seen performing wrestling moves on a toddler when adults turn their backs or leave the room.
Mississippi Department of Health regulations is investigating why the 9-year-old boy was mingling with infants and toddlers.
In an exclusive interview with a WLBT photojournalist, the boy's aunt said the child had emotional and behavioral problems for which he was prescribed medicine.
"He bad. He fight but he don't fight little babies. He do also have a problem. He take medicine every day and he just a normal child," says Vinia Dolley.
Everyone seems to be cashing in on Trayvon Martin's tragic death. According to the Orlando Sentinel, George Zimmerman's parents, Robert and Gladys, have launched their own website to collect public donations to fund their lifestyles.
Zimmerman is charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon in February. He is free on $1 million bond. The former neighborhood watchman has launched several websites to cash in on Trayvon's death.
Alani "La La" Vazquez-Anthony, 35, was seen shopping with her lesbian clique, Po Johnson and Candice "Dice" Dixon, along Robertson Boulevard in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. It is reported that La La samples from both gender entrées, and that she only got married so her strictly religious family wouldn't find out about her extracurricular activities. That was a smart move. It would disappoint her mom if she ever found out.

Former "Cosby" kid Rayven-Symone is planning a big splashy wedding to her girlfriend, AzMarie, 24, The National Enquirer reports. According to the tabloid, Raven and the former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant are holed up in a $11,000-a-month apartment in Manhattan while the paparazzi circle like buzzards outside.
The Enquirer notes that Raven-Symone wants to come out of the closet, but she wants to do it in her own inimitable way -- with rainbow confetti and glitter and so forth.
Raven-Symone is supposedly planning to wed her girlfriend in NYC, and she wants first lady Michelle Obama to officiate.
That's not likely to happen after burlesque dancer Beyonce asked Michelle to be her baby's godmother -- and Michelle politely declined. And she loves Beyonce.
Despite what you may have heard from the Democrats or the White House, the love affair between black people and President Obama is over. Black people love Mitt Romney, as this campaign video proves.
In the video, titled “We Need Mitt Romney,” a sister states, "We need in our next president someone who will be honest, open and transparent."
President Obama received 95% of the black vote in 2008. But he promptly broke all the promises that he made, including the promises that his administration would be honest, open and transparent.
There is always a dominant partner in any relationship, business or interpersonal. For example, a gold digger is always the one who's running things, even if the man acts as if he's in charge. You can easily tell who is in charge by the body language they display.
Take for instance this seemingly innocent kiss between NBA star Chris Bosh, of the champion Miami Heat, and his wife Adrienne in Venice, Italy today. See how she holds his face in both hands while guiding him to her? That's a sign of total domination and control. You see this often when a female takes away from the relationship more than she is giving.
Troubled singer Chris Brown partied with his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche Tran and Paris Hilton at Gotha Nightclub in Cannes, France Wednesday morning. Despite the fact that Karrueche never leaves CB's side, the media continues to entertain stories of Brown slipping away to be with ex-girlfriend Rihanna. It may be true, but word is that Brown is sleeping with other women, too -- and Karrueche knows that. But she refuses to leave. Yesterday Brown tweeted, "I'm trying my best to be the greatest person I can be (not just artist)." Good luck with that.

To answer your question "who moves to Toronto"? The people who no longer wants to live in a racist, backward, gun toting, broke ass, no health car country like America. That, Sandra, is who moves to Toronto. You have pissed me off many time before but those dumb statements was just you talking out of your ass and not worth a response. You're still talking out of your ass but I was born in Toronto so I had to respond.
Before you make foolish backward statements you should do your research.

If the Jackson drama was a publicity stunt to promote the Jackson brothers' tour, it has backfired badly.
A California judge has suspended Katherine Jackson as the legal guardian of the late Michael Jackson's 3 children. In an emergency hearing today, the judge appointed TJ Jackson, son of Jackson 5 original member Tito Jackson, as the children's temporary guardian. TJ Jackson was a member of the 1990s music group 3T.
According to TJ's uncle, Jermaine Jackson, Katherine Jackson suffered a mild stroke months ago which left her physically unable to care for the children.
"This is not a power play by TJ Jackson," L.A. Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff said at an emergency hearing today. "This is based on the allegation that Katherine Jackson is being prevented from acting as guardian."

Singer Frank Ocean's new album, Channel Orange, weaves a tapestry of triumph over unrequited love. The public's acceptance of Channel Orange, with its flood of emotions and quiet angst, helped the album debut at #2 on the Billboard charts.
Announcing his homosexuality prior to the release of 'Orange' was a well-calculated marketing strategy. Now Ocean, 24, is ready to make his next big move -- to Toronto -- where his rumored lover, Drake, 24, was born and still resides.
I mean, who moves to Toronto?
