Protests have been raging in North Carolina and its not Occupy. NAACP’s “Moral Monday’s” has transformed into a movement where hundreds have been handcuffed in the last two months in a show of solidarity for the countries poor. GOP have referenced the bible in their attacks on food stamps and programs for the poor. This has hit a chord in the black and religious bible belt of the south.
Contemporary GOP argue that the por need private charity, jobs, and self reliance instead of government handouts. This ignores the fact that their are a limited amount of wealthy donors(less than usual because of the recession and nearly stagnant recovery) and dollars as the price of living and food continues to skyrocket. GOP also ignore the fact that the jobs market is still recovering slowly, workers wages are at record lows compared to Ceo pay, and the workforce has to compete with a global workforce that can operate at a much cheaper man hour price.
The GOP wants to continue to give bush era tax cuts, while following the age old American policy of cuts to the nearly bankrupt Medicaid program,raise taxes on middle class families, and restrict access to the state run pre-k program. The NAACP has vowed to carry on the protests indefinitely until change is brought. The protesters know that change won’t be immediate, but they vow to continue to fight until the end.

When Justin Bieber received the “Milestone Award” at the 2013 Billboard Awards, the audience didn’t seem to embrace him very well. In fact, from the moment Ceelo Green read Bieber’s name from the card and during his acceptance speech to the fans on national television, the cheers were over saturated with a massive amount of booing spectators.
The camera men did a great job by only showing footage of the supporting fans during the acceptance speech while Bieber put his foot in his mouth by saying “I’m 19 years old, I think I’m doing a pretty good job….. This is not a gimmick, I’m an artist and I should be taking seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of”. He really pissed the haters off when he made that statement. The footage is below, check it out and comment below.

Now this is NASTY. Just outright NASTY. From the entire time through, if one is to just listen to this nasty, then it’s easy to sight that she doesn’t have it all together. Not saying that he dude wasn’t showing proper etiquette for national television, however, can anybody blame him? Did she, or did she not have sex with her own brother? Well, a lie detector that her as well as her brother took as well stated that SOMETHING happened between the two sibling, perhaps some kissing, fondling or other things, minus the sexual intercourse. Either way, any sexual act involving two family members is just GROSS.
See the craziness below.

“I’ve been in that contract for 16 years,” he explained. “Yeah, the other day he let me out of it, so big shout-outs to Diddy. I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.” – Ma$e speaking about Sean P. Diddy Combs
The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.
Well that was good, and it makes you wonder why Diddy kept the guy in the contract for so long? I mean he was his (Diddy) prized package since the unfortunate death of the late great Notorious B.I.G. So yeah, go figure! But anyway, both can move on now. But now that Ma$e is free, will he sign with Kanye? He did with Ye on the G.O.O.D. Music ‘s Cruel Summer compilation project. He does admire Yeezy’s work ethic as well as the creative space he gives his artists. Perhaps in today’s era of hip hop and Ma$e’s style, G.O.O.D. Music may well be the place for the Harlem emCee.
Check out this RapFix interview w/ Ma$e being interviewed by MTV’s own Sway Calloway.
Race and ethnicity has always been a complex matter, especially regarding people of color, or BLACKNESS. There’s still that one percent factor. In other words, if there’s even a “pinch” of black blood in your DNA then you’re black. A huge factor during the African slave trade and still exist in modern society. Positive or negative? If looking at the current American president, Barack Obama, then POSITIVE, or NEGATIVE, via perception (good or bad), pride and prejudice. How about American professional golfer, Tiger Woods, who refers to his ethnic make-up as “Cablinasian” due to the mixed ancestry of his parents? When millions look at him, they see a black man. Well, not until his recent publicized scandal regarding an extra marital affair. Identification is in the number 1′s of problems regarding how people view themselves and others. Could there ever be one answer to define this matter?

Bobbi Kristina Gets Into Car Accident
Bobbi Kristina was in a serious car accident on Wednesday Nov. 28th 2012. Fortunately she escaped unharmed. According to www.aceshowbiz.com
“The only daughter of Whitney Houston allegedly lost control of her vehicle when attempting to make a left turn out of her apartment block. In a picture obtained by TMZ, the front bumper and tires of Bobbi’s once-shiny car was badly damaged. Luckily, the young reality TV star was left unharmed in the accident. When cops arrived on the scene, she was standing beside her car without any visible injuries.
“At 11:46 A.M., the Alpharetta 911 center received a telephone call from a passerby who advised us a black Camaro had left a roadway and had traveled down an embankment,” said George Gordon, executive officer and public information officer with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety, in an email to Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
This may be one of 50 Cent’s biggest hits to date. He knows the approach for making classic albums and singles. Yet getting the Maroon 5′s front man, Adan Levine to join him on a track is indeed surprising. 50 and Levine perform their ‘My Life’ single on NBC’s The Voice last night. Shady Records CEO, Eminem who is indeed a friend to 50, also appears on the track, however didn’t make The Voice appearance. However, the crowd wasn’t disappointed, as there were Screams galore. Can we say a GRAMMY nod?
It’s been 25 years since the making of the one of the greatest pop albums of all time (Bad) and perhaps 25 years later, it would still be considered as one of the ultimate classic albums. To many, Thriller may have been Michael Jackson’s best selling album; however, it was Bad that gave MJ the King of Pop title. Michael Jackson was not only a musical influence to many; furthermore. he influenced choreography, dance, fashion, etc.
In this short documentary, Bad 25, directed by the great Spike Lee, fans get to witness unseen footage of Michael’s recording process for his 1987 iconic Bad album as well as be surprised to which songs nearly didn’t make the final cut for the album. Guest appearances includes people who Michael worked with as well as admired, from Martin Scorsese, who directed the Bad video, Siedah Garrett (Man In The Mirror, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You), Quincy Jones (executive producer for Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad), Cee-lo Green, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Questlove, Sheryl Crow (actress and former background vocalist for Michael Jackson), Greg Phillinganes (Michael’s keyboardist), Tatiana Thumbtzen and a list of others.

Will Sesame Street get rid of Elmo since Kevin Clash has resigned at the result of a second accuser coming forward? (video)
Who cares about Kevin Clash aka the voice of Elmo (Sesame Street) is gay? Well the kids do and parents are definitely going to have a hard time explaining the sex scandal and that Mr. Clash has resigned after nearly three decades of being the voice of Elmo. What will happen to the rates PBS and Sesame Street due to his departure after a second accuser has come forth, claiming he, in 1993 being fifteen years old at the time, meet the puppeteer on a gay phone chatline? Damage has indeed been done. Perhaps excluding the character Elmo from the famous children show will help keep a clean image at PBS. Maybe we’ll be saying R.I.P. to Sesame Street soon, because what is Sesame Street without Elmo.
This is some sick mess. He literally took the biblical scripture that reads ‘an eye for an eye’ (Exodus 21:24) to another level. Did the Holy Ghost lead him to do this? This post is not to ridicule Christianity nor its’ pastors. But I’m wondering, what was in the mind of these alleged ‘victims’ to even do some of the things he requested of them to do? Yeah, the pastor is indeed sick. Consequently, those men gave him the opportunity to do such horrific things in the name of Jesus. I’m done. Too disturbing to write move.
See the news and hear the charges brought against this sick man.

What you must love about comedy is that it brings people together. Even two people whom have racial issues with one another could sit and laugh about the same things. Though views might be different, the FACT of matters are quite entertaining. That’s what’s brilliant about South Park as it takes the realities of life and poke fun at it. The latest episode was Obama’s re-election. The reality is, not every American citizen is happy about that, and for different reasons of course. Many are questioning the CHANGE Obama has supposedly brought to USA since former president George W. Bush’s eight years in office, except for the face of presidency, i.e. being the FIRST black president of America. Other issues regards the presidents “friendliness”, lacking firmness with China. And Comedy Central’s South Park addresses that. However regardless one’s views about the current state of America with Barack Obama in office, sometimes you just got to sit back, eat some snacks and LM@O about it. Because guess what? Like him or not, he’s NOT GOING ANYONE for FOUR MORE YEARS!

One would think that after age 18, or in many cases, 21, children would be about to make their own decisions and set out their own path. Maybe that’s true of most families in the United States of America, yet India’s a difficult culture, with a different set of principals, particularly in the area of marriage to which most marriages in the country are arranged. Most marriages that aren’t arranged are frown upon and could lead to serious issues such as family separation or DEATH even. The latter is something the couple (Rajveer and Madhuri) in the video fears, both coming from a Muslim and Hindu society. Though happy to be together, having married, they’re on the run for their lives, fearing being killed by the family, as the thought of one finding love on their own isn’t something yet grasps in their family and in much of the country. So they called the Love Commandos; a group of aging businessmen and journalists who began a movement to protect lovers from harassment by both Hindu and Muslim hard-liners, according to the BBC (Huffington Post).
The Love Commandos formed 10 years ago, and since then have opened up secret shelters to help rescue Indian couples, like Rajveer and Madhuri, who are in love but are in danger of being forced to marry someone else by their families. The couple escaped their village and made way to the Love Commandos’ shelter in New Delhi and married there.
I’ve been loving you since 2004, Finding Nemo. – Dwight Howard
NBA sensation, Dwight Howard has declared his love for talk show host/comedienne, Ellen Degeneres on her hit self-titled talk show(The Ellen Degeneres Show). The talk host show/comedienne/actress played the character, Dory in the computer-animated comedy-drama film written and directed by Andrew Stanton. Actually, the film was released in 2003, not 2004 as the newly Los Angeles Lakers point forward mentioned on the show. Perhaps it was quite infatuated by Degeneres and led to his error. It happens.
See Dwight Howard on The Ellen Degeneres Show. And check out his dance moves for the ladies.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta
Reunion Part 1

Kanye tells his boo, ‘Babe, if you’re going to be rocking with the best, you must rock the best’. In the latest clip of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians (E!), the G.O.O.D. Music exec./Roc Nation artist along with his stylist went over to the Kardashian’s pad to do a little closet cleaning. Now here it is, Kim is already on her ‘A’ game with fashion. But being that she’s with the perfectionist maestro of music and fashion, ‘the best isn’t the best unless Mr. West says YES!’.
Kim says that Ye has inspired her to be a little bit more of an individual. Fair enough.
Leading on to the next thing, seems the Kardashian sisters, plus mom Kris Jenner has rubbed brother and son Rob Kardashian the wrong way, has he broke down in tears while he along with sisters Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and mom Kris visited family counselor Dr. Nicki J. Monti. In order words, Rod was saying that he’s tired of their bull…. Thankfully he has brother-n-law Kanye West to help him cope with his emotions.
Since his release from prison nearly 2 years ago, King of the South otherwise known as T.I. has been grinding and gearing up for the release of his ‘Trouble Man’ album which will drop soon, though without a release date. One joint from the upcoming album is entitled ‘Go Get It’ to which the Grand Hustle CEO is working on a video for. Much of the video was shot at the Mozley Park community swimming pool, which is on the West side of Atlanta, Georgia. T.I. says the concept of the video is about how he used to kick it to how he’s kicking it now, which you’re able to get a sneak peak of it towards the end of the video’s making, which would make sense to be the same for the authentic release.
See the behind the scene footage of T.I.’s ‘Go Get It’ video below.

Speaking with Dave Letterman on the Late Show With David Letterman, Hollywood actor Will Smith addressed the incident in which he slapped a Ukrainian reporter for trying to kiss him on the lips at the Moscow premiere of Men in Black III last week.
“I didn’t beat up a guy! No, no. I was in Moscow and … we’re doing an interview and he says, ‘Man …,’ he was a reporter and he says, ‘I’m your biggest fan, can I have a hug, please?’ ” he recalled to Letterman. “So I go to give this joker a hug and he tries to lean in to kiss me, you know? And … it’s just awkward, Dave.” (Late Show With David Letterman)
See the video clip below of Will giving the guy a backhand.
