Ciara covers Paper magazine

The saying goes: “Good artists borrow, great artists steal.” It seems that songbird Ciara borrowed some elements from Jennifer Lopez’s August 2013 W magazine cover for her August 2013 cover of PAPER magazine. Both ladies wear sultry fishnet that leave nothing to the imagination. Ciara flexed her muscles in Christian Siriano and Natalie Joos sheer top, while J-Lo looked simply smashing in a Gucci dress on the W cover. Ciara completed her outfit with a pair of exotic animal print Christian Louboutins. So I gotta ask: who wore it worse?

Shannon and Monica Brown

Now that some of the rabble rousers have left for the day, I can post these beautiful photos from Monica Brown’s elegantly appointed baby shower held this past weekend at a private residence in Atlanta.

All details of the event were planned by Laiyah’s daddy, Shannon Brown and event planner Mindy Weiss. Monica, who’s due to deliver in 3 weeks, didn’t have to lift a finger. Shannon and Mindy created the menu, the decor, etc. One key thing on the menu was the Laiyah Love drink served chilled to all guests created by her father. The Laiyah Love drink consisted of homemade lemonade mixed with a splash of each guest’s favorite drink.

Black diners ejected from restaurant

A Charleston man who says he and his family were racially discriminated against at a restaurant took his complaints to Facebook, reports Live 5 News. Michael Brown says he and other family members were celebrating at Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston, when a shift manager asked the raucous party to move to another section because a white customer was uncomfortable.

“She said there’s a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” explains Brown. “Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before.”

Pastor Bans Hair Weaves in His Church

A Waco, Texas pastor is making waves for giving a fiery speech about the women in his flock. Pastor A.J. Aamir has grown wary of looking out over his congregation at Resurrecting Faith Church and seeing a sea of Yaki hair weave.

“Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying,” Pastor A.J. Aamir told AmericaPreachers.com.
