Serena Williams excited her west coast viewers after she crip walked following her historic first Olympic gold medal win in London. But not everyone was happy for her. Radio deejays Rosenberg and K.Foxx ripped Serena for incorporating the widely recognized gang dance move into her celebrations.

"She's supposed to be a role model, not perpetuating gangster violence," said K. Foxx.

The Crips are one of the largest and most violent gangs in gang-infested Los Angeles, and the Crip Walk supposedly spells out the name of the Crips with intricate footsteps.

Since the beginning of time, man has attempted to figure out how to tell if a woman or man is attracted to the same sex. If you listen to the gays, you would think that babies are born gay. But the truth is that humans and animals simply adapt psychosocially to our environments. In other words, we like what we like -- whether what we like is a man, woman, child, or horse.

A new study reveals a sure-fire way to tell if someone is gay or straight: it's all in the eyes.

Olympic darling Gabrielle Douglas isn't bothered by ignorant comments about her hair. She knows that people who talk negatively about others are hurting inside.

In an interview Sunday, the 16-year-old said she read some of the comments on the Internet after winning her 2nd gold medal in the London Olympics.

"I don't know where this is coming from. What's wrong with my hair?" said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. "I'm like, 'I just made history and people are focused on my hair?'"

Douglas says she uses gel, clips and a ponytail holder to keep her hair in place while she competes in the Olympic gymnast competition. She's worn her hairstyle -- a combination of synthetic sew-ins mixed with her real hair -- for years.

Emo rapper Drake can't have Rihanna or Beyonce as his personal play things, so he settles for obsessing over deceased singer Aaliyah, whose beauty preceded and superseded her vocal abilities. Today, Drake released a posthumous track titled "Enough Said," starring Aaliyah and featuring himself. "Enough Said" is not an exceptional single, but Aaliyah's unreleased vocals takes center stage. So enough said.

Odd Future singer/songwriter Frank Ocean slept on his Detroit fans, and they are hopping mad! Ocean, 24, stood up his devoted Detroit fans a few days ago -- some of them drove from several states away and stood in line for hours just to hear him sing (I don't know why because he sounds dreadful).

Read one disappointed fan's long, but emotional email after the break. This is what happens when you put insecure, narcissistic celebrities on pedestals; they look down on you.

Dear Sandra,

After reading your post on Gabrielle Douglas, I was compelled to write to you (once again). I do believe that you hit the mark with your scathing criticism of those who are so focused on her hairstyle, that they overlook her awe inspiring accomplishments. However, I disagree with the title of your post, your viewpoint, and those of others who continually lump all black people into one category, one community, etc. which ignores our diversity of cultures, ideas, attitudes, values and beliefs. The various opinions expressed on such egocentric social media sites as Facebook and Twitter only represent a minority of opinions. Please take the time to highlight the small ignorant few instead of titling your post 'Black Ignorance' because ignorance is equitably distributed accross all populations and Black people (which includes Africans, African Americans, Afro Carribeans, Cape Verdeans, Jamaicans, West Indians and etcetera) do not have a lock on ignorance. Thank you so much!

All the Best,

Akilah
