I don’t know why the Lord keeps on blessing me. Just days after his secret love child Michelle Williams randomly surfaced like an overnight zit, Verdine White brought poise, personality, and full edges to the Royal Albert Hall in London as he performed with Earth, Wind And Fire.
Unhealthy obsession on my part aside, one thing must be said — the legendary group stays booking a stage! Later for these new era flops whose careers won’t survive long enough to book a club hosting gig for NBA All-Star Weekend next year.
Jamie Foxx and other stars are lending their support raise awareness on the plight of LGBT homeless youth on the streets of Los Angeles in a new public service announcement.
The short film ‘Any Given Tuesday’ follows a gay teen (Noland Ammon) who is abrupty kicked out of his home, sexually assaulted and pushed to the brink of suicide. Heavy, heavy.

Note from management: Feel free to tuck all expensive jewelry underneath your shirt sleeves and collars before continuing to finish reading this post, thanks.
Over the weekend, Trinidad James hit up at Atlanta’s Mansion Elan in support of Rich Homie Quan‘s birthday bash. In case you need a hint at who is whom, Trinidad is the one giving Miss Celie tease and Quan is the one that looks Shug Avery without her wig. Just want to save you that Google image search.
Rihanna was booted from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in the United Arab Emirates over the weekend after posing for a photo op that didn’t mesh with ‘sanctity’ standards of the holy site. Way to go, Cynthia Doll.
Allow Michael K. from Dlisted to explain:
RiRi’s Cubic Zirconias World Tour stopped in Abu Dhabi over the weekend and on Saturday she decided to put on a hijab and bust out an Instagram photo shoot at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We as a people should gather together as one and be thankful that RiRi covered up her fugilicious tattoos for once, but not everyone is happy about this shit. After striking ridiculous pose after ridiculous pose on the grounds of the Grand Mosque, RiRi was kicked out by officials who were offended by her little photo shoot.
“She left without entering the mosque, after being asked to do so, due to the fact that she had taken some pictures that do not conform with the conditions and regulations put in place by the Centre’s management to regulate visits in a way that takes the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration,” a representative for the mosque told media outlets in a statement.
Can we share a honest moment for a second? Disapproving white people own the patent on this facial expression and have no issue with utilizing it. That being said, I mess with Steven Tyler the long way. I’ve given the same look of utter disgust after fuck shit has entered my direct visual line of sight. At the end of the day we all sit under the shade tree together.
When I construct a bad bitch Mount Rushmore made out of paper mache I plan on placing his bust between Geisha 305 and The QVC Quacker Factory Queen.
I’m all for struggle rappers ceasing every opportunity they can to make it in the world just as long as they stay the hell out of my mentions with links to their SoundCloud account on Twitter.
When asked to share a sample of his craft, your gospel rapper cousin attempted to spit a hot 16 off the dome knowing damn well that’s not his specialty. The rest is fodder for shits and giggles on the devil’s playground.
I wonder how many footprints he saw in the sand, because Jesus sure as hell wasn’t carrying his ass.

In an exclusive interview with The Christian Post, gospel recording artist (and alleged owner an impressive holy grail) Deitrick Haddon gives his opinion on why Christians need to get over the possessions of the ministers featured on ‘Preachers of L.A.’ and focus on winning souls for Jesus and more.
Read excerpts from the conversation below.
On the runaway success of ‘Preachers of L.A.’
“It was just the way I envisioned it, and I’m humbled to be able to be a part of such a groundbreaking, history-making product. I was walking one day in the middle of my test, when I was going through, about my divorce and I had a baby out of wedlock and the baby was on the way. I was walking, I was praying, I just knew I messed up. And God was encouraging me and telling me, ‘Deitrick it’s going to be okay. You’ve got a storm coming but I’m still with you through it all.’”
After a nearly decade-long hiatus Mase is returning to the studio to work on a new album. The former Bad Boy rapper, spotted above grabbing a bite to eat in New York City over the weekend, took to his Twitter account to reveal both the album title, ‘Now We Even’.
“No abbreviations. Use #NOWWEEVEN. That’s the only conversation I’m having,” Passah Betha tweeted. “Right now I’m listening to all my early freestyles and songs. This got to be something special. A couple free shows and visits #NOWWEEVEN.”
The Harlem native adds his ideal album would feature collaborations with artists such as Lauryn Hill, 2 Chainz, Drake, Meek Mill, Seal, Cam’ron, CeeLo Green and more. When quizzed by a fan when the follow-up to ‘Welcome Back’ would be released, he responded, “Once I finish it.”
