I was sent this video to post and at first I thought, “Oh, just another Twerk Song.” But this kid can really sing! As adults, we might not understand the whole “twerking” fad, but twerking has been around forever. This is nothing new.
Check out the official lyric video below. And if you’re into the twerking thing, B. Smyth aka @Therealbsmyth on Twitter is holding a Twerk Contest on his Twitter Page.
The production team behind the Fast & Furious movie franchise released a moving tribute to actor Paul Walker, 40, who was incinerated along with a friend in a single car accident in California last weekend.
Predictably, the coroner’s report listed the cause of Walker’s death as “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries” from the high speed impact and the fire that engulfed the $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT that Walker was riding in.
According to the coroner’s report, Walker initially survived the violent impact, but he died “within seconds” after the crash.
A new NYPD program is stirring more controversy than the policy that it was designed to replace. The New York Police Department’s “Stop-and-Kiss” program is an effort to tamp down the complaints of the NYPD’s controversial Stop-and-frisk program that critics say targets black and Hispanic men.
Critics are calling the NYPD’s Stop-and-Kiss program a violation of privacy. Thousands took to the streets earlier this week to protest the new program. The new policy allows officers to kiss anyone who they believe looks suspicious.
New Yorkers who complain that they have been stopped and kissed say the new policy is even more intrusive than the Stop-and-frisk policy.
