Celebrities have united to call for a one-day retail boycott. Celebs such as Russell Simmons have taken to social media to urge their followers not to spend money on Black Friday, Nov. 28 -- the day when Americans traditionally kick off their Christmas shopping.

The national news media expects us to destroy our own neighborhoods. What they don't expect is for us to organize and use our trillion-dollar buying power to negatively impact the economy.

Kimora Lee married

Once again, social media users took a seemingly innocent social media message and turned it into a ridiculous rumor.

Earlier this week rumors flew that socialite Kimora Lee Simmons was shacking up with Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan "Baby" Williams, aka Birdman. Just yesterday I chastised a young reader for emailing me about this silly rumor. I reminded her that Kimora is dating a Caucasian man. Now comes word that Kimora and her beau (whom she barely knows) have tied the knot.

Media mogul Russell Simmons says President Obama's troubled health care law has already saved thousands, if not millions, of lives. Simmons made his ludicrous claims in an op-ed post on his website, Global Grind.

"Yes, we initially wanted single payer, and we had to compromise back in 2009 for the Affordable Care Act," Simmons wrote. "But, [Obamacare] is a damn good piece of legislation that has already saved hundreds of thousands, if not millions of lives. So, let us not give up now."

Simmons did not provide any statistics or evidence to back up his claims.

Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher

Why am I not surprised that Eddie Murphy is dating Russell Simmons' leftovers? Male celebrities frequently recycle the same broads like they collect cars. Dating the same woman that another celebrity used and discarded seems to be a popular pastime in Hollywood.

Murphy's latest conquest, Paige Butcher, used to date Simmons and model Tyson Beckford, among others. Obviously she doesn't mind being used goods as long as her bills are paid.

Russell Simmons Lil Reese

A writer for Ebony.com took Russell Simmons to task for his "half-hearted" blog post condemning little known rapper Lil Reese for assaulting a woman. The writer, Sil Lai Abrams, is a relationship expert and a victim of domestic abuse herself. Lil Reese's violent assault on high school graduate Tiairah Marie was captured on a cell phone video that went viral online.

Reese later apologized for his earlier defiant response to the public outrage -- but only after radio programmers and DJs threatened to boycott his music.

Russell Simmons, who was criticized for approving a post on Global Grind written by a black woman defending Reese's behavior, wrote a tweet indicating he had no editorial control over his own blog.

"I deplore the violence one editor said boycott him the other said team them I said nothing," Simmons tweeted on Oct. 29. He later deleted his tweet.

I was waiting for Hip Hop apologist Russell Simmons to defend the latest incidence of senseless violence in Hip Hop, and Russell did not disappoint. Simmons is always quick to defend rappers who commit assault, rape and other offenses. This time he used a woman to do his dirty work for him.

In an editorial published on Simmons' blog Global Grind, Evanka Williamson defended Chicago rapper Lil Reese's actions in a viral video that shows him brutally beating a young woman last year. Reese is also under investigation in the shooting death of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Lil Jojo.

It's worth noting that Lil Reese did not apologize for his violent behavior until radio program directors and DJs threatened to boycott his records.

These pics of MTV VJ LaLa Vasquez struggling to hold onto her son Kiyan on a street in Beverly Hills are so cute. She should put a leash on her son and just let him roam like those rich dames do with their kids in Beverly Hills. When she's not on Twitter 24/7, she's wife to NBA Superstar Carmelo Anthony.


Music mogul Russell Simmons is such an embarrassment. To be so old and an attention whore is not a good look. When he's not defending rappers, who should be behind bars, he's frolicking on the beach with chicks young enough to be his granddaughter.
