Celebs Out & About: Beyonce

Beyonce and Jay Z in New Orleans

Beyonce posted these artsy vacation pictures while on tour with her husband, Jay Z, in New Orleans. The last time Beyonce inserted herself into artwork it didn’t end well for her. Beyonce drew heat from Christians and fans alike after she blocked out Jesus who was depicted in a mural of the ‘Last Supper’. Bey’s camp rushed to contain the damage by claiming she innocently posed on a counter at a juice bar in Miami. But we all know that every move Beyonce makes is calculated to draw attention to herself.




 

The Gays Show Intolerance and Hate Towards WNBA Player

Sophia Young

Sophia Young

A WNBA player who came out against same-sex marriage yesterday was attacked and dragged on Twitter for her beliefs.

Sophia Young, 29, who plays for the San Antonio Silver Stars, tweeted a photo of herself holding up a placard that read “Vote No” outside the San Antonio City Hall, where hundreds of people prayed against a proposed LGBT anti-discrimination bill. The devout Christian mistook the anti-discrimination legislation for a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.

Instead of gently correcting her, Twitter users came for her throat with the same hatred and vitriol that they despise.

One Twitter user, @ChristopherFTL, tweeted “Bitch, are you really that dumb? Your mama must’ve been hitting the crack pipe while pregnant with your ugly ass.”

Petition to Cancel TLC’s ‘Sisterhood’ gaining momentum

TLC Sisterhood cast

958,000 is roughly the number of viewers who tuned in to watch the series premiere of TLC’s reality TV show Sisterhood last Tuesday. In fact, the number of viewers who tuned in was so low that the show is not even listed on the TV ratings charts for shows that aired on January 1st.

Apparently, TLC’s decision to cut the check for a reality show that focuses on preacher’s wives was not a good move.

250 is the number of signatures reached on a petition to pressure TLC into canceling the show. But the petition might not be necessary.

Video: Oprah – “Jesus is not the only way to God”

I found this video on AOL Black Voices blog. The video is a deep discussion about the different ways to God according to Oprah Winfrey.

The lively discussion took place on Oprah’s “After Oprah” show on the Oxygen channel. I’ve never seen Oprah’s audience go in on her the way this audience does. Her critics claim Oprah is denying Jesus in this video. That’s not my interpretation. What I hear is Oprah explaining that there are other religions in the world other than Christianity.
