Earlier today, rap mogul Jay Z explained the inspiration behind his upcoming CD Magna Carta Holy Grail. The 45-year-old rapper whose real name is Shawn Knowles-Carter, says the album's tracks were influenced by his father leaving him as a boy. Carter said the track "Jay-Z Blue" was inspired by his own childhood experience, plus the experience of being a father to his daughter Blue Ivy, who was born in 2012. "It deals with my pop leaving when I was young. He didn't teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child, or treat a woman. And I have a daughter. It's the paranoia of not being a great dad."

Doc Rivers Son Defends Him On Twitter

The sports world is buzzing today about the dismantling of the NBA's Boston Celtics. The team's stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded to the Brooklyn Nets, while their coach Doc Rivers is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers.

ESPN's Bill Simmons took Rivers' departure unusually hard during a mini meltdown on ESPN's live coverage of the NBA draft.

"I would like to call him a idiot but I'm too classy for that, said Rivers, responding to Simmons' comment that Rivers "quit" on the Celtics.

The last time I checked, this was still a free country where a coach has the freedom to accept a $21 million contract to take his talents to another team.

Police Identify 3rd Suspect in Hernandez Case

Boston police and federal authorities have identified a 3rd suspect wanted in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27. Ernest Wallace, aka "Bo Fish," is wanted for accessory after murder.

Hernandez, 23, is being held without bond on first degree murder and weapons charges. A second accomplice, Carlos A. Ortiz, 23, was arrested near Bristol, Conn., earlier this week. Bristol is the hometown of Hernandez.

Rick Ross sued by jeweler

Last year the timepiece of choice for the hip hop set was Audemars Piguet (because rappers like Jay Z favor the brand). This year, the timepiece of choice seems to be the legendary Rolex. So much so that jewelers can't keep the pricey watches in stock.

Rapper Rick Ross has always had a taste for finer things since the days when he punched a clock as a corrections officer in Florida. But a jeweler is suing Ross for absconding with about $90,000 worth of Rolexes that he didn't pay for. Read on.

Hernandezing

As Twitter and other social media proves, most people are followers. They are easily influenced by celebrities and other notables who give them cues on everything from the latest trends to what type of women to date. Last year's craze, popularized and spread rapidly through social media, were 'Planking' and 'Tebowing.' Thank God those trends phased out.

The arrest of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has launched a new trend called 'Hernandezing' -- or wearing your t-shirt over your arms which are positioned behind your back.

Sports Grid has the details after the break.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy

Like most narcissists, singer Beyonce knows how to get our attention. The "Grown Woman" singer published a new photo of her daughter Blue Ivy wearing a crown on her head. The crown, which is custom made to fit the child's head, is a symbol of Beyonce's overinflated sense of superiority projected onto her innocent daughter. Beyonce, whose parents treated her like a gilded object to be put on display, is doing the same to her daughter. There is no doubt that Blue Ivy will grow up to be a narcissist like her mother and father; but by the time she's grown, society at large will be 90% narcissistic. So it may not be such a bad thing.

The Russian tourist who accused troubled singer Chris Brown of a hit-and-run says Brown looked scary and his tattoo's intimidated her.

Olga Gure-Kovalenko told gossip website TMZ.com that her "blood pressure shot through the roof," the day her car bumper was tapped by Brown's Range Rover in May.

She said she didn't recognize the singer who is a household name in the states. "I was so afraid because he looked scary for me because it was a big car, he had a lot of tattoos, and I didn't know he was a celebrity. For me he looked kind of scary," she said.

I hate to see a person that's apart of the Gay community using their platform to discredit the hardworking Americans that's currently fighting for equal rights in this country by labeling it the "gay agenda". How big is the paycheck you receiving from Anti-gay groups? I hope their check makes you sleep at night. I lived long enough to know, that all the negative things you do in life will always come back on you, Karma will hit you so hard you won't even see it coming.

I use to be fan of your blog, But I made the decision to not visit your website anymore. You seriously have an issue with the gay community, and you need to diagnose this problem within yourself just like you diagnose the "issues" of the celebrities you frequently write about. Are you prefect? or are you a narcissist too?

Peace Out Sandra...

Good Afternoon/Evening/Morning Ms. Rose,

I enjoy your website immensely and enjoy reading it (and the comments from your readers, lol). As a Floridian, I appreciate the support and attention you have brought to the Trayvon Martin case. But, I really don't want anyone to forget about Jordan Davis, the young man who was senselessly murdered at a Jacksonville gas station because his music was "threatening". Along with Kendrick Johnson, who was found rolled up in a mat in his high school gym in Valdosta but, his death has been ruled as "accidental" (btw,you can Google his death picture but, be warned, it is gruesome).

Please encourage your readers especially those in Florida and Georgia to continue the fight for justice for Trayvon Martin, but please don't forget Jordan Davis and Kendrick Johnson.

Thank you.

Barack Obama DOMA

President Obama praised today's Supreme Court's decision to strike down certain provisions in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). The court also overturned Prop 8 allowing gays to marry in California.

In its decision, the court cleared the way for states that allow gay marriage to pay federal benefits to married gay couples. But 36 states still ban gay marriage and those states will not be affected by today's supreme court ruling.

In a statement following the court's ruling, Obama said he would not force religious institutions to hold gay weddings.

Trayvon Martin

The woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin when he was confronted and shot by George Zimmerman inside a gated community took the witness stand today.

Rachel Jeantel, 19, told jurors she was not Trayvon's girlfriend. She recounted the phone conversation she had with Trayvon before he was shot to death by the self-appointed neighborhood watchman inside the Retreat at Twin Lakes subdivision in February.

Speaking almost in a whisper, Jeantel said Trayvon used the N-word several times as she described what she heard Martin say to a male. She said Trayvon told her the man was following him as he returned to his father's fiancee's home from a convenience store. He described the man as "creepy" and a "cracker."

Paula Deen support from black celebs

Actress Stacey Dash, NFL player Kris Jenkins and civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton are among the black notables who have come forward in support of embattled tv chef Paula Deen.

Deen, 66, was dropped by the Food Network on Friday after Deen readily admitted she used racial slurs and cracked racist jokes about black people in a videotaped deposition.

Two other Deen sponsors, QVC and Smithfield Foods, are quietly shelving the celebrity chef while they await the outcome of a million-dollar sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Deen's brother, Bubba Hiers, by a former employee.

gay man kills wife

The Supreme Court ruled on two cases today that will change the way traditional marriage has been defined for ages. The SCOTUS judges voted to strike down key provisions in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the voter-backed law that bans gay marriage in California.

In a 5-4 decision, the supreme court ruled that gays married in states where gay marriage is legal can collect federal benefits in all states -- except Utah, which refuses to recognize gay marriage.

The supreme court avoided ruling on the issue of gay marriage altogether. Which means 36 states can still ban gay marriage.

On Prop 8, the Supreme Court ruled that the state of California can vacate and remand the decision, essentially ignoring voters who disapproved of gay marriage.

Meanwhile, here's an article that you won't hear much about in the mainstream media: a gay man and his brother have been charged with killing a woman to cash in on her insurance policy.

Update: Earlier I noted that gays who marry in states where gay marriage is legal will be recognized in all states as a result of today's supreme court ruling. That was incorrect. States where gay marriage is not legal do not have to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.

Chris Brown

Embattled singer Chris Brown took to his Twitter account today to respond to the LA city attorney charging him with hit-and-run.

The 24-year-old singer's name has been a mainstay in the headlines over the last few years, but it looks it he may not be in the wrong this time.

If you recall, Brown and his longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran were involved in a fender bender back in May. Brown's SUV tapped the bumper of another woman's vehicle. He got out, exchanged information with the woman, took a few photos of the minimal damage, then left the scene.

Now Brown is accusing gossip website TMZ of "yellow journalism" for bullying him and reporting the new charges.

"My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!," Brown wrote.
