Beyonce Martin tribute

While in Atlanta for a concert over the weekend, Beyonce took a private, guided tour of the historic birth home and church of civil rights icon Martin Luther King. On Monday she posted photos paying homage to Dr. King on her personal website, which were mistaken for a tribute to slain Miami teenager Trayvon Martin.

Sources tell me that Beyonce’s publicist fielded numerous phone calls all day yesterday from the media who thought Beyonce’s photo tribute was a subtle protest of the Zimmerman not guilty verdict. So Beyonce instructed her webmaster to add a photo of Dr. King to her website to clarify who the tribute was intended for.

A Los Angeles judge has revoked Chris Brown’s probation in his 2009 domestic abuse conviction for beating ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The judge revoked Brown’s probation today after reviewing a request from the LA prosecutor’s office, which alleges that Brown violated the terms of his probation by committing an alleged hit-and-run in May.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin set a August 16 court date to determine if any punishment is warranted. Brown faces up to 4 years in prison.

Before the hearing, Brown took to his Twitter page today to plead his case in the court of public opinion: “I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C’mon!!”

A middle-aged Tennessee woman wants an apology from a doctor who used ghetto slang to explain the cause of her lower back pain.

In an interview with CBS affiliate WERG in Memphis, Terry Ragland, 55, said she went to see Dr. Timothy Sweo in April for treatment of severe lower back pain.

“It’s one of those things where my hip seems to slip, like it’s slipping out of place a little bit. It’s painful when you get up to go walk it kind of slips, you know,” said Ragland, explaining her painful condition.

Dr. Sweo examined Ragland and diagnosed her with Lumbar Lordosis, a painful inward curvature of the lower spine that causes the tailbone to protrude outward.

“He said ‘I know what the problem is. It’s ghetto booty,’” said Ragland. “I think I blacked out after he said ‘ghetto booty,'” she recalled.

Kim Kardashian’s mother/manager Kris Jenner stooped to a new low by using her granddaughter, North West, to promote her new daytime talk show, “Kris”, on her Facebook page. Kris wrote, “You never know who will stop by our show today! #WatchKris”. She also posted a photo of herself smiling with a baby in her arms. The infant in her arms looks a little larger than a preemie who was born last month. The photo teaser prompted one fan to write: “We will be very disappointed if this is not Kim’s baby.”

Indeed, the child may be a North West imposter. Gossip website TMZ confirms the infant belongs to a hair and makeup person on the set.

Kim is reportedly outraged that someone on the staff at Cedars-Sinai hospital leaked her Pre-eclampsia diagnosis to the tabloids.

Solange Knowles Protest

Singer/DJ Solange Knowles was among the demonstrators taking to the streets around the country to protest the acquittal of the man charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Solange participated in a rally for Trayvon at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall, in Brooklyn, NY, on Sunday — one day after a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman on all charges. Solo’s more famous sister, Beyonce, asked for a moment of silence during her concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. “I’d like to have a moment of silence for Trayvon,” said Beyonce on Saturday, about 30 minutes after the verdict was announced. President Barack Obama called for calm after the verdict. And the Dept. of Justice says it will review the case to see if Zimmerman violated Trayvon’s civil rights.

  • George Zimmerman not guilty

    After deliberating for 2 days, an all-white, all female Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty on all counts in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, 29, breathed a sigh of relief as the verdict was read in a Florida courtroom on Saturday.

    The self-appointed neighborhood watchman claimed self-defense when he shot the unarmed teen to death in February 2012 in a gated Sanford, Florida subdivision. Martin was returning to his father’s friend’s home after a trip to a convenience store to buy a pack of Skittles for his stepbrother and a beverage for himself.

    A White House official tells CNN President Obama will not issue a statement on the Zimmerman not guilty verdict.

    Good evening Ms Rose!

    In these past few weeks I’ve read a few of your articles regarding the gay agenda. I knew that our country was trying to make everyone more accepting with the LGBT community, which I feel is necessary, but the way that they are targeting our children is disturbing. So naturally I did my research and came across this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egxB0dTajb4 (At around 6 minutes they start discussing kids.)

    In the video, parents were targeted and one even thrown in jail because he didn’t agree with his son’s school reading a book called ‘A King and A King’. Once he and his wife had their day in court, the school district admitted that they felt it was necessary to teach children homosexuality because they are at an ‘impressional age’.

    I have nothing against homosexuality, or even letting children know that some families are different, but they are not allowing these kids to grow and develop their own feelings.

    What is the first step to protect our children?

    Update: Loyal reader Audra writes:

    Thank you so much for posting the video on the agenda the Gay community is using to target our children. If being gay is an individuals choice then that is a decision they decided to live with but to force such ideals on my child that is raised to have views that oppose such a lifestyle is dead wrong.
