6. MAYBE IT’S NOT ACTING…

Actress and acting coach Tasha Smith from Tyler Perry’s movies, television shows, et all has been ordered to stay 100 feet from her husband Keith and 2 feet from him while in the house together, REALLY JUDGE…All this was done because the actress has allegedly been getting drunk as skunk and threatening the poor stay at home husband’s life and even doing it in front of his kids…DAAAAMNNN, maybe the scenes between her and Michael Jai White are based in reality. Here’s hoping this all get resolved, or I see another Tyler Perry movie/play in the works…WHY DID TASHA SMITH GO TO JAIL…YASSS…

5. THE “HIT-MAKER” HITS HIS GF ON A DATE?!

Rapper Young Berg has been making news this week for not one but two reasons.  The first was because he allegedly beat his girlfriend Masika to the point of being unrecognizable over a credit card being declined while on a date. Love and Hip Hop L.A.’s producers took swift action and gave the not oft seen rapper the boot and his girlfriend as well have been fired from the show. Now how will he pay that credit card bill that lead to the card being declined if he doesn’t have a job? God knows he hasn’t had a hit in years. A hot hit-maker ass mess.

4. YOU GOT TO BUY MY S***

No more streaming on Pandora, Spotify or the like for Taylor Swift fans, as the young songstress pulled her whole catalogue from the streaming service last week. She said this was in an effort to bolster album sells of her new album 1989, and in an unprecedented moved, she’s setting the precedence for other artists who don’t want to have their music streamed. So, get ready to buy your music now. No more “Thumbs Up” and creating lists to listen to while at the gym, driving your car or ignoring your girlfriend, you’ll just have to buy the newest music of your choice.

3. KEEPING IT “REAL”…

Much beguiled former singer, according to many sources, Chris Brown is making waves again on social media with a new feud with THE REAL’s Tamar Braxton and Adrianne Bailon. After making comments about the singer’s relationship with his girlfriend Karruchee Tran, Chris Brown took to Instagram and called Adrian and Tamar everything but a child of God. The singer didn’t take kindly to being discussed as an example and promptly let them new in the most bitchtastic rant in years. He later pulled the comments and the video, but not before Tamar and Adrianne popped back with their own video calling Chris Brown out and letting him know that he’s hating is only making them greater…Sounds fun ladies…Now let’s be nice to each other. There is enough room for everyone.

2. KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDA….CARTERS

Beyoncé announced early this week that she would be releasing two new tracks on a rerelease of her self-titled album. Mrs. Carter is so busy with those two tracks and trying to make it seem like she’s still happily married, it’s no wonder she looked faded at a NET’S game or was that just the mind control from SATAN showing off?

In other Carters’ news, husband Jay-Z purchased ACE OF SPADE, luxury champagne. He’s taking his dominance over the world of entertainment by having a successful rap career, artist management, sports management and now luxury beverage owner.  That billion dollars on the elevator is about to get a little bit bigger.

  1. 1. HISTORY BEING MADE…AGAIN…

After Eric Holder resigned as the Attorney General last month, rumors and speculation had been running rampant as to who would replace the first African-American A.G. News came down this week that North Carolina native and black woman Loretta Lynch will be taking over the position. Here’s hoping she can keep the controversy at bay, and A++++ for President Obama for looking towards another minority, this time a woman of color, to fill such an influential position. He’s going to need all the luck he can get with all the newly Republican controlled Senate blocking his every move.

That’s it for this week…Check back next week for all the latest news that’s taking the world by storm…

Move over Oprah, the ‘Owning Your Beautiful’ campaign is here!

“What is beauty?” A question so simple yet, so many women don’t know how to respond. Is it what’s on television? If so, which channel? Is it the girl who sits next to you in biology or at work? Is it the girl with 3K Instagram followers or the girl with three college degrees? Is she the girl with freckles all over her face or the girl shaved bald due to leukemia? Is she skinny? Is she tall? No one has a definite answer and that’s well, the beauty in it.

To be beautiful is to feel beautiful. Inside. Where it counts. Yes, the world around you will spoon feed you the hottest glam star divas out there, but did you ever stop and think that they themselves may not feel beautiful? So inside is where the essence of beauty lies.

The Owning Your Beautiful Project was initially designed to showcase the joy, fear & confidence that the concept of “beauty” produces. Yet, in the pursuit of this showcase the stereotypes and stigmatism’s’ of being “beautiful”, were also revealed. Nine different women were selected to explain, their definition of “beauty”, and the role that “beauty” has in today’s society. To culminate the, Owning Your Beautiful : 30 Days of Beauty Project, a launch event was given to display the entire project, and force attendees to dig deep and question what the concept of “beauty” meant to them as well.

-MVT Projects

Depicted through a series of videos posted on Instagram and YouTube, the organization caused a huge buzz around Los Angeles raising awareness and shining light on the questions:

• What defines beauty ?

• What makes a woman “beautiful”?

• How essential is “beauty” in today’s culture?

• What inspires you to be “beautiful”?

With answers across the board from silly to sentimental, the nine young ladies broke down what it really means to be a woman in todays society. Tackling how to conquer the hate and judgements of our surroundings. Watch the founder, Marie Thorne, discuss the project here on Part 1 of the Owning You Beautiful: 30 Days of Beauty project.

[Street News] Top 5 Weekly Recap: Tyrese went gay for ‘Baby Boy’ and Tiny alters PERMANENT eye color?!

5. Dumb s*** & the people who do them…

A Washington D.C. area teacher this week was caught giving a “private lesson” to a seventeen year old student in a class room during a prep rally. The teen secretly videoed the teacher getting nasty and showed it around the school…and BAMM she was put on blast, promptly fired, charged with sexual assault and this was all done on her first day of substitute teaching…Also, in other STATUTORY news, a decorated and highly accomplished female coach in Staten Island had sex with one of her students more than 30 times before being caught, and put on blast in the local media and now the  obsessed world. Now to the west coast, a woman in LA COUNTY this week had to be rescued from a chimney she climbed down and got stuck. Who does this girl think she is? Santa? No, what she is is an obsessed woman who met a man on a dating website and got promptly denied. She thought this was the best way to get into his bed again. On an even dumber tip, a man on probation for drug violations in Georgia this week texted his parole officer: “Where da weed at?” And promptly was thrown back in jail…Dumb people, DUMB S*** lol.

4.  WERE YOU SLEEP FOR ALMOST TWENTY FIVE YEARS?

Goodfella’s actor Frank Sivero is suing THE SIMPSONS and their creators to the tune of 250 million dollars. That is not some chump change for the actor who claims the show has used his image and “voice” for the reoccurring character of Louie a gangster in Big Tony’s Gang on the show. What strikes me as odd is that the character of Big Tony and his band of Thugs have been on the show for almost 23 years, making their debut in 1991 on the third season of the show. I’m all about getting what you deserve, but did your residuals run out Mr. Sivero?  Why choose almost twenty years later to voice your concerns or even sue them for using your “likeness”? Hmm..

3. ‘KEEPING IT REAL’… WELL, NOT REALLY. 

Tiny’s IG page

Geneva Thomas and ex video vixen Melissa Ford got into a heated altercation while filming their reality show BLOOD, SWEAT & HILLS that left the former “it” girl with stiches in her head. To top it all off Geneva, the thrower of the bottle, is suing the victim for slander…MESSY… Amidst allegations that Mama June was dating a child offender and one of her children has come forth and admitted to being molested by said gentleman, allegedly, TLC’s hit program HERE COMES HONEY-BOO has been promptly CANCELLED…. In other reality show news, FAMILY BUSINESS star Tameka “Tiny” Harris has admitted to having a surgical appearance to alter the color of her irises to an ice grey. To this I say Tom-foolery and this is why certain people should NOT have an abundance of money…I guess Reality Just got REAL.

2. IF YOU CAN’T BEAT THEM, PUT THEM ON BLAST…

Former Saturday Night Live Write Hannibal Burress put America’s dad Bill Cosby on blast during a recent stand-up routine where he called the famed comedian a rapist in a comedy show earlier last week. The comedian responded to the controversy with saying that he said it in retaliation to the COS going H.A.M. on the black culture and he was only making the joke to show how hypocritical Mr. Cosby was…In other Bad Mouthing news, Wild N’ Out star Spanky Hayes has accused singer/actor Tyrese of pleasing a male producer on his knees in order to get his coveted career making role in John Singleton’s Baby Boy. To this Tyrese responded that the role was originally meant for Tupac, but unfortunately the actor was killed. He also went on to say that he was hand-picked specifically for the role and that no one else was in contention and that meant MR. SPANKEY HAYES who swears that he auditioned for the role himself and lost out to Tyrese. IN OTHER WORDS MR. HAYES: YOU ARE LYING…(ALLEGEDLY)…

  1. 1. WEIRD TWOSOME…

   

Suge Knight and Katt Williams were arrested last week and booked on charges that they stole a camera from a photographer.  In an update to the story, TMZ has obtained video of the two having an altercation with the paparazzo, who they warned about taking pictures of them and their children. If convicted the two could face some serious time in jail. Williams would serve almost seven years, and Knight 30 years to life. That’s a lot for a stolen camera. It would have been cheaper just to pay them off or not be doing anything crazy in the first place.. #IMJUSTSAYIN’ !!!

That’s it for this week. TWEET, FACEBOOK & I.G. me folks…Until next time….
