In case y’all missed it two real life fashion queens are are engulfed in a real life fashion fued.
It all started when Saskwatch Leon Talley told The Grio that Russell Simmons had no business sitting amongst the fashion elite during New York Fashion Week.
“I don’t think Russell Simmons should be seated on anybody’s front row this week after having done that disgusting Harriet Tubman sex tape,” André said. “He is a man of great achievement. He is a great philanthropist — why would he think it would be an honorable thing to do? He said he thought it was funny. That is not funny, it is outrageously disrespectful to the legacy and history of Harriet Tubman and to the struggle.”
I wasn’t a fan of that Harriet Tubman crap that Russell allowed to be produced. It was tacky as hell. However, Russell did apologize for it. Does Russell deserve to be shunned by the fashion folks as a result of his mistake. He doesn’t think so. Check out his choice words for Madea Leon Talley Continue reading
I’m so got damn tired of Bill O’Reilly I don’t know what to do. He reminds me a lot of Sandra Rose. They both say unpopular things just to get a rise out of folks. The sh!t has gotten old now…
“The reason Trayvon Martin died is because he looked a certain way, and it wasn’t based on skin color,” O’Reilly told West on Friday. “If Trayvon Martin had been wearing a jacket like you are and a tie, Mr. West, this evening, I don’t think George Zimmerman would’ve had any problem. But he was wearing a hoodie, and he looked a certain way, and that way is how gangstas look. And therefore he got attention.”
–Bill O’Reilly to Allen West on Friday’s “O’Reilly Factor.”

At the conclusion of the R&B Divas LA reunion when Kelly Price made the big tour announcement, I fell dead to the bed. Is it me, or was the whole announcement shady bootz? Kelly announced that she along with Faith Evans, Chante Moore, Dawn Robinson, and Brownstone would be going on tour. The announcement caught everyone off guard. I like to refer to this lineup as the friends, family and favoritism tour. Much like the Sesame Street game, one of these things is not like the other. Based on their reactions, no one was more caught off guard than Lil Mo. Am I the only one who felt like Chante should have perhaps filled Mo in, even if no paperwork had been signed yet? Then it threw me how Kelly paid a sickening piece of homage to Michel’le, citing that before there was Faith or Mary J Blige, Michel’le was singing over hip hop beats. However, when the tour line up was announced, Michel’le s name was nowhere in the mix. Really Girl? But Dawn Robinson made the short list? Ohh ok. We all see what this is. There is so much mess here that I don’t even know where to begin breaking it all down. Continue reading
There are so many angles I could take with this post, but I am going to show a bit of restraint and take the socially responsible route. If you have ever wanted to understand the struggle of someone who is suffering with their sexuality as it relates to being accepted, the Mr. Cee Story would be a great place to start. Is he gay, is he straight, is he bi, is he on the down low? I’ve got a better question, why does it matter? He likes what he likes and that’s all to it. We’ve got to stop putting people in boxes because are own level of comprehension is too basic to think beyond what has been force fed to us by society.
It’s looking like Mr. Cee is finally coming to terms with who he is and is one step closer to being free. In an interview with Hot97 Mr. Cee revealed that he has been in denial about his affinity for transvestites for a long time. He also dishes the dirt on receiving fellatio from transvestites. Tearfully Mr. Cee discusses discusses slowly moving towards a place where he can be who he is without fear of shame and judgement from others. It’s pretty good stuff. Catch these T’s Continue reading
There is a special place in hell for this SOB. This story may be old to some of you, but I am just catching wind of it and thought I’d share. This Michigan husband is facing abuse charges after allowing his 400-pound wife to die in bed surrounded by maggots and her own waste. This definitely brings a new meaning to “til death do uspart”. Chile things were so bad that fire crews had to wear hazardous material suits to remove Yolanda Reese-Brooks from her home. When the fire crew found 40-year-old Brooks, she was close to death with maggots crawling over her body and lying in her own waste having been unable to leave her bed for months. Ohhh but it gets worse. Catch these t’s.

Homophobia and transphobia loom over Mister Cee’s resignation from Hot 97. His resignation is not only about those things, but they factor.
Nothing fuels our appetite for “exposure” like racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia. The need to “out” people is sky-high. The racist appetite for “outing” has subsided, but during Slavery and Jim Crow people were obsessed with exposing those who were “passing.” There remains a sexism fueled appetite for “outing” and exposing women for their sexual acts. Just look at Gucci Mane’s tweets. The consequences of homophobic and transphobic “outing” are, of course, far more detrimental and deadly. The appetite is the same. During Slavery and Jim Crow, reputations were ruined if it was discovered a White wanted to date/marry a Black. Stigma of “nigger lovers.” The societal need to “out” and expose people is almost always a signal of larger social oppression. In closing, it is not enough to be upset that people are “outed”–one must question the homophobic and transphobic culture compelling this. Continue reading
