I guess I’m in the mood to handle the dark and heavy today. Lord knows yesterday I was not here for it. It goes without saying I have a partiality for reporting news out of Miami, FL. If you didn’t know, that is home for me. It saddens me to report that a Miami mother of 3 was shot and killed yesterday in a home invasion. To make matters worse for this family, 2 years prior, the slain woman’s sister was stabbed and killed over 50 times be her neighbor.
Police are currently in search of two armed men who entered the home (2443 NW 90th St) of 38-year old Octavia Jones and shot her multiple times. Jones died before help could arrive according to Miami-Dade Police.
The woman’s brother had this to say:
“She was a wonderful person, she never got into any trouble, she had a nine to five job and I don’t understand why this happened,” Namor Jones said. “She was a loving, caring mom. She always came to you if you needed help or anything.”
“I thought about my other sister, right away, the one that got stabbed up in Miramar. I thought about her immediately. It just brought back bad memories.”
Jone’s boyfriend was home at the time of the shootings but was unarmed.
Anyone with information on this shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
Listen, I don’t know what the hell Will & Jada are over there doing with these kids, but their asses need to be investigated. When you allow your barely teenage daughter to lay up in the bed with grown white men and allow your kids to opt out of going to school, they end up wacked out like Willow & Jaden Smith. I don’t know what the hell these two laced their granola bars with before they gave a recent T Magazine interview, but the thought process of these two raises major concern. I had to read their responses to the interview questions multiple times, and I still have no understanding of a complete thought that either of these kids were trying to convey. Check this excerpt out for example:
I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?
WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.
JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
WILLOW: Because living.
JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.
WILLOW: It’s the action of it.
Nessa Girl, it gets worse. Check out more excerpts from the interview below. Continue reading
It took me a moment to speak on this matter. My heart was conflicted on if I should say anything publically at all. I wanted to be very careful as to not exploit a complete travesty for personal gain. We all know I get paid for what I write. Then I thought about it. I came to the conclusion that I sacrificed a lot to find my voice, and I put in an abundance of blood sweat and tears to maintain this platform, why not talk about it? Then again it is my life.
Myron May was someone I knew. For lack of a better term, he was my friend. Was he the guy that knew my inner most secrets and the one I would call on when things got tough? Absolutely not. However, he was the kid that I met freshman year, the kid that I hung out with occasionally through overlapping social circles, the kid that I shared a few classes with, the kid that partook in the same extracurricular activities as I did, and the kid that I really didn’t have much contact with post graduating from FSU in 2005.
Call it racist, call it profiling, call it whatever you want, but when the news first broke, rest assured me and every other Black person in America just knew the gunman was White. Black people don’t do sh!t like this. So we thought. Continue reading
Nessa Girl, it looks as if Wendy Williams’s stab at producing may signify the start of her fall from grace. Chile, quiet as its kept, I never had any intentions on watching the Aaliyah biography in the first place. No tea no shade, but it just felt like a bunch a mess from the onset. Well, I guess my spirit was right. The way y’all lit up that biography and Wendy Williams on my Twitter time line makes me glad that I didn’t waste 2 hours of my life watching a rushed biopic.
Here was my initial issue with the production of the Aaliyah biography: SHE AIN’T BEEN DEAD LONG ENOUGH. Who the hell was this biography’s target demographic? All of us that grew up on Aaliyah’s music already know just about everything there is to know about her. Hell, both Aaliyah and her core fan base lived their teenage years alongside one another. Aaliyah’s music was so before its time, that when It comes on the radio now, it still sounds very relevant. With that, the younger generations knows a little something something about her too. So I have to ask Wendy Williams, “who in the hell was this biopic designed to educate?”. Continue reading
With great sadness I report to you guys that Mariah from Married to Medicine has suffered a miscarriage. On October 20th, I reported that she was pregnant with twins [Married To Medicine’s Mariah Huq Pregnant With Twins. Just In Time For A Story Line…], and it is with great sadness that I must report on November 11th, this is no more.
In a statement of confirmation, her husban Aydin Huq had this to say:
Thank you for all of your well wishes on our pregnancy. It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we have miscarried. This is by far one of the hardest things that either of us have had to go through, and we are truly saddened by this double loss. We ask that you keep our entire family lifted in prayer, and Mariah a speedy recovery. Aydin HuQ.
Lawd I think Tiny done f&cked up. Instead of just issuing an arbitrary apology, or saying nothing, Tiny decides to get a little defensive. When Blogger Sandra Rose Tweeted out her story about Tiny throwing sorority hand signs, Tiny responded in a way that isn’t too flattering to many Black Greeks
Tiny’s response further demonstrates her ignorance on college life and Greek affairs. Had she been semi educated about the goings ons of Black Greek life, she would have known that by no means was this acceptable, and her response would have had more of an apologetic tone. Being Greek myself, I don’t really take offense to this. Hell, at the end of the day, throwing up a hand sign isn’t hurting anyone. However, I do recognize that there are other Greeks who feel a tad bit more strongly about the matter, and I respect that. Again going back to Tiny’s ignorance, we have all at some point thrown up the signs of various organizations, however, I’m sure most of us weren’t dumb enough to photograph it. Perhaps Tiny’s next venture should be ‘Tiny & Shekinah Go To College’. Ha…
This is hot off the presses and developing NOW we speak. Quad Webb0Lunceford is presently at a Downtown Atlanta urgent care facility being checked out after an altercation took place while filming. Quad was heard saying by those in the waiting room that someone threw something in her face. I’m being told that Quad & Co called ahead to brief the staff that they were en route, and she was swiftly taken to the back. Patients in the waiting room are currently pissed as hell because wait times have been in excess of 45 minutes, yet Qaud was seen immediately.
It is unclear at this time who the altercation involved. Considering that Quad is presently at the urgent care center, it is reasonable to assume that non of the doctors were around. I’ve started making phone calls and shot out a few texts. As the information starts to pour in, I will keep you guys updated.
Now y’all already know y’all mama ain’t the smartest thing in the world. Real talk, in this clip, Beyonce really does look like she is rocking out to the beat of her own drum. Video captured at the Brooklyn Nets vs Oklahoma City shows Beyonce rocking back and forth not to the beat of the music, but to the noise in her head. The 33-year old singer seems to be in a complete chemically induced trance. If I had to be honest, I would say she probably had just a little too much to drink. Others think its a little deeper than that. Social media has been blowing up with speculation that the singer was good and high.
Take a look at the video and you be the judge:
Drunk In Love or High Bootz?
