Yesterday was the end of the road for many unlucky NFL rookies who were cut from their NFL team’s roster. One football player who survived the first round of cuts is openly gay Michael Sam, the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year who hoped to ensure his spot on a NFL team by announcing his homosexuality before the draft.

Most good decent people have a moral line they will not cross. That line was crossed on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday when guest host Karrueche Tran (Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again concubine) disrespected Beyonce and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Karrueche mentioned Blue Ivy’s unkempt hair days in a skit which didn’t go over well with the BET audience or Black Twitter, the monolithic, influential collective of opinionated black users on Twitter.com.

The last 2 months have been an emotional roller coaster for pop singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter. After coming off her own successful world tour, Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z, embarked on a joint national tour together.

Death Row Records owner and chief instigator Shug Knight was shot multiple times at an unofficial pre-Video Music Awards party hosted by Chris Brown in Los Angeles on Saturday. (The VMA folks were quick to disassociate themselves from Brown’s event after the shooting.) Knight — who at 49 is way too old to be partying in nightclubs — was reportedly shot at least twice and as many as six times.
Some believe Brown was the intended target of the gunman. According to social media reports, before the shots rang out, Brown stood with his arms outstretched as if he was invincible.
