Wig crypt employees that have been dismissed for the summer are making good on their promise to make voluntary contributions a top priority in their lives a close second to the hourly sterilization of Blue Ivy’s pacifiers.
Michelle Williams lent her voice to a worthy cause, performing at The Adrian Simone Foundation Benefit Concert at Montville High School in Montville, New Jersey last Friday (May 18).
While visiting family living in the area, the Destiny’s Child singer became aware of 19-year-old Lance Corporal Adrian Simone’s story of losing both legs in Afghanistan last August after encountering an Improvised Explosion Device (IED) and offered to help the hometown war hero. Funds raised from the concert will go towards his rehabilitation and accommodations at the Simone home.
I try to abide by the Creole Code of Conduct as much as I possibly since the last thing I need is any bad blood between Mathew Knowles and myself but there will not be a prized yaki sighting today on my watch. I am sure you won’t have any problems finding adequate coverage of your highness here in the negroid blogosphere.

In somber times as the present it’s nice to know that Rich of FourFour, who has been the Nettie to my Celie since 2005, can still make me smile with my heart.
I’m a little late to this one, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t touch on my favorite person on TV this week, soul singer Millie Jackson. Her life story took up an hour of TV One’s Unsung (basically my favorite show on TV now – did you see last week’s Full Force episode?!?). And what a story it was! She got her break by shit-talking some woman that was onstage at a concert she attended. She described her marriage to a bass player like this: “He was a decent cat, but he thought we were going to be Ike and Tina, and the record company didn’t sign Ike, it only signed Tina.” She gave Roxanne Shanté these words of advice: “You’ll be successful a lot longer for the nasty things that come out of your mouth than the nasty things you put in it.” She made fun of her own music, lamented her inability to pawn gold records and showed that at age 67, she’s still quite flexible (you can see that in the video above).
No one puts baby in a corner! By the powers vested in her latest sew-in, Michelle Williams will slow twerk for glory and pay as she participates in the UK dance competition show Strictly Come Dancing.
Digital Spy reports the singer, who is one of 14 celebrities competing in the new series, told BBC News that she has received good luck wishes from Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland via text.
“You know what, I would love, love, love for the girls to come over,” she said. “But we’ve been texting each other on our Blackberries back and forth, so I know I have their support in that area, in that way.”
