Over 20,000 people are expected to attend Muslim prayers before the start of the Democratic National Convention on Friday in Charlotte, NC.

Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said Friday’s prayers are to hold the political parties accountable, and to “anesthetize” Americans who harbor anti-Islamic opinions.

There is no word on if President Obama — who was raised Muslim — will speak at the prayer meeting which will “target the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment,” according to The Blaze.

The Blaze points out that a request by a Catholic Cardinal to say a prayer at the 2012 Democratic National Convention was denied. But the DNC is partnering with the Bureau of Muslim Affairs for Friday’s 2-hour Muslim prayer event.

Hollywood Socialite Angela Simmons, 24, was seen having lunch with a young man in Los Angeles, Friday. He’s not dressed like a thug so we know she’s not dating this guy. We also know from sources that Simmons has a hard time finding suitable dates because of potential suitors’ distaste for her ‘no intercourse, oral sex only’ rules. Apparently, Simmons is a good girl who wants to preserve her virginity for her future husband.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that firefighters battled a fire that broke out at the famed Tyler Perry Studios on Continental Colony Parkway in southeast Atlanta early Monday morning.

Monday’s fire was the second suspicious fire at the studios in recent months. The fire apparently started in a 3-story building about 100×200 feet, or the size of a 3-story portable toilet. In May, another building on the 30-acre property was damaged by a fire that started suspiciously.

There has been no official comment by Perry, 42, who opened the movie studio in 2008 and recently hosted a star-studded re-election event for President Oabama.

Teyana was dressed in her usual uniform: a white tank top, jogging pants, baseball cap and a fresh pair of Jordans.
