The weekend leading up to last night's BET Awards was marred by violence. 1 man is dead and 5 others were injured in separate incidents in Los Angeles. But the show must go on -- and on, and on... Most people (this writer included) didn't stay up for the almost 4 hourlong awards show. So we missed the part when rapper Nicki Minaj accepted her trophy for best female hip hop artist -- and dissed pseudo-rapper Iggy Azalea at the same time.

Old skool rapper MC Lyte put a young lady on blast after the fan apparently leaked private shirtless photos of rap star Aubrey Drake Graham online.
Gender confused individuals such as transgender model Carmen Carrera, left, and transgender activist Janet Mock now have 50 new gender options to choose from on Facebook.com.
Facebook.com is adding 50 new options for users who self-identity as something other than what they were born as. Options include the usual pronouns: him, her, or them. Then there are the 50 tangential choices, such as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
Most Instagram users spend their time following their friends or keeping up with their favorite celebrities. But a core of women known as Groupies follow professional athletes in order to catalogue their vast riches in the hopes of one day meeting the athlete and taking possession of his wealth in family court after the baby arrives. This is why accountants advise young athletes not to floss their wealth on social media. But do they listen?

R&B singer Ashanti is catching heat for what her fans are saying was a "homophobic" tweet. The singer, who once dated rapper Nelly, asked her Twitter followers to pick the winner of the upcoming Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers or the Seattle Seahawks.
After one rude fan tweeted: "Your flop single", Ashanti clapped back by tweeting: "don't be mad at me cause u in the closet... Flop that ya lil b#tch lmao!"
Earlier today, a senior advisor to President Obama tweeted what his subconscious mind was already thinking.
Dan Pfeiffer was responding to a Twitter discussion about political polarization and how the Internet and social media plays a major factor.
He tweeted: "Also a much nigger factor on the right."
What Pfieffer meant to tweet was the word 'bigger' -- but since 'nigger' was already occupying his subconscious mind, that's what came out.
Why is Obama's senior advisor lollygagging around on social media anyway? Is he one of the 800,000 furloughed non-essential workers?
Jada Pinkett-Smith, 42, posted this family photo on her Facebook page Saturday. In the photo, a masculine looking Jada posed beside her husband Will, 45, and his firstborn son Trey, 21, from a previous marriage.
In a previous post, Jada hinted at trouble in her marriage. She sought advice from older couples who had been married for 25+ years. Jada concluded that the key to a happy marriage was to give each other space and permission to seek intimacy outside of their stagnant marriage.
In the photo caption, she writes:
Social networking giant Facebook has announced a new change in its policy that will allow advertisers to use your name, original content, Personal data and your photos in their online advertisements without your permission and without compensation to you.
The announcement comes on the heels of a legal settlement earlier this week that saw Facebook pay out over $20 million to Facebook members whose names and images were used in ads without their permission. Under the terms of the settlement each user will receive $15 in compensation.
Prior to the new change, Facebook members were allowed to choose privacy settings that blocked the use of their name and images in advertising on the social network. Those privacy settings have now been removed.
Facebook has reworded the policy to inform users that your face and name CAN be used in advertisements going forward -- without your permission.
Paul Baier is a good dad. That's why he plans to pay his daughter $200 to deactivate her Facebook page -- probably so she can reconnect with Life before it's too late.
Baier's daughter, Rachel, was 14 years (and 5 months) when she signed a contract with her dad on Feb. 4. The contract, which will be finalized on June 26 and is posted on Baier's blog, gives Baier full control of Rachel's Facebook page in addition to her password so he can deactivate the account.
First, I want to say how happy I am that I don't have a Facebook page. I can't be bothered with the many annoying changes that Facebook subjects their addicted users to.
Mark Zuckerberg's sister, Randi, inadvertently exposed Facebook's confusing privacy settings when a Twitter user, who is not on Randi's FB friend list, re-posted a personal photo of hers on Twitter.com.
Randi was upset because she sent the photo to a small group of friends on Facebook. The photo showed her family, including her painfully private brother Mark, standing in the kitchen reacting to Facebook's new Poke app.
