tyler perry zps247936aa Stray Shots: Tyler Perry Wins Trademark Battle For What Would Jesus Do

- Let us pray: What Would Jesus Do is now property of Tyler Perry. Now, raise your hand if you mentally stretched out his last name like Hurricane Chris expressing his fondness Halle Berry.

The United State Patent and Trademark Office sided with the media mogul in the trademark battle for the popular phrase last week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

He won the battle over ‘I Want to Work for Diddy’ flop (listen, we all fall short of the glory of God) Kimberly “Poprah” Kearney, who registered the trademark in 2008, several months before Perry did. Perry registered the phrase in the category of “entertainment services,” with the idea of producing “live concerts, a TV program and motion pictures” in relation to the trademark.

Who you finna try? According to 50 Cent (who is in full swing promo mode pushing his new album ‘Animal Ambition’), Beyonce is not the docile zombie as seen in the Cartergate elevator surveillance video. In fact, she even confronted the G-Unit general once in defense of Jay-Z over a rumored beef between the two rappers.

“One time [Beyoncé] jumped off of a ledge and came running over cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I’m like, ‘What the fuck? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?’” 50 told Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club.

The More You Know: Solange Is Tired Of People ‘Playing Black’

solange2 The More You Know: Solange Is Tired Of People Playing Black

Solange is tired of people thinking they are down for the cause because they keep a few token homies in their crew. ”It’s just so fun to ‘play black’ huh? Liiiiike……Lets all dress up, and ‘play black’ today because that shit is more fun than six flags!,” she tweeted yesterday.

Sol-angel and her Hadley Street Dreams deserve one huge sigh followed up by a long look at a dusty ceiling fan.

I get where you are coming from with this, but if you aren’t going to grab the mic and say that the next time you are spinning “Back That Ass Up” for those exact people at a corporate-sponsored hipster block party in the heart of gentrified ass Brooklyn — get off my porch. I can’t be bothered. Oh, and just @ Miley Cyrus next time.

Watch Solange dance around an empty flea market in her latest music video.

Nepotism is alive and kicking inside the wig crypt. That’s enough to make anybody happy. “It humbles me to see so many of y’all singing the old songs,” Solange told an audience gathered to watch her afternoon set at Made In America on Sunday. “I appreciate you following me through my evolution.”

Solo charmed the crowd throughout her soul set on the Freedom stage, donning a retro dress and afro. She breezed through songs like “Losing You” and “Some Things Just Never Fucking Work” and also performed a cover of of the Dirty Projectors’ Zen signature hit “Stillness Is The Move.”

It’s been an eventful Labor Day weekend for Kid Creole. She rocked an after-party for the festival at the Theater of Living Arts on South Street for corporate sponsor Skype the evening before.

Check out an additional snapshot of Solange talking with big sister Beyonce inside.
