Our fave child star turned platinum singer and actress, Brandy Norwood is back!

It’s been so long since we’ve heard new music from the triple threat artist but it was worth the wait. The new single is titled ‘Beggin And Pleadin’.

In the song, Brandy is telling her ex to take his name back. What a powerful message for single folks everywhere.

2016 Snow Blizzard In Full Effect

img_20160124_035856.jpg

Friday night brought along the whitest winter that we’ve ever seen. The entire east coast is under massive amounts of snow.

Not only did the east coast area get buried but the south got a little bit of it too. In states such as New York, Maryland and Philadelphia, the residents are actually diving in and are completely buried to the point where you can’t see them.

Since majority of the citizens are undoubtedly snowed in, they decided to make the best out of a terrifying situation by participating in the snow challenge.

We have all literally been laughing out loud at the non-stop videos being posted on social media. The videos vary from jumping off roofs into the snow to hilarious swim competitions. Someone even captured a panda bear rolling around enjoying himself.

The vehicles are completely covered and one resident captured a photo of the snow way past the knob on the door, which is taller than many people. It’s quite unbelievable at this point but its great that they’re having fun!

 

Lottery Winner Slain In Home Robbery

A Georgia forklift operator was shot to death in a home invasion Thursday just months after winning a almost half-million-dollar lottery jackpot.

Burch struck gold on November 29, 2015 when he hit the lottery. The hardworking young man did not flaunt his earnings in a boastful way, instead he is said to have helped the community.

Craigory Burch Jr., 20, died from gunshot wounds on Stubbs Avenue in Fitzgerald, a local NBC News affiliate reported.

Investigators said Burch’s girlfriend was inside the home at the time and immediately ran for help.

No arrests have been made as of yet. 

Burch had just won a $434,272 Fantasy 5 jackpot in November. His friends said he had recently used some of his winnings to buy Christmas presents for people in need, NBC reported.

Stacey Dash Is Not Here For The Black Community

In Response To The Oscar’s Lack of Diversity: Stacey Dash Boldly Says There Should Be No BET, NAACP Image Awards or Black History Month

Here is our thoughts on the issue:

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There is no need to bash one another in order to be heard.
Stacy Dash is a soul lost in corporate America, that tried and almost succeeded in Hollywood.

It is clear that this woman is hurting from god knows what. Maybe a black person did her wrong in her past but to bash your own community is beyond comprehension.

At one point, Dash was a big part of our history and made us all proud, that a beautiful black queen could grace our television screens and take on roles side by side with white America.

Today, Stacey opens her mouth and spits out uneducated coonery every chance she gets.

You don’t have to agree with the struggle but you MUST respect it. We have come much to far as a race for idiotic comments to be made on national TV. Your brain should help you to think before you speak in any situation.

If it were not for the protests and battles we fought and won in history, Stacey would not be able to sit on Fox News today and speak her opinions.

So, Stacey we say to you, if it we’re not for BET, NAACP IMAGE AWARDS OR BLACK HISTORY MONTH, you amongst many black entertainers and leaders would not have had a platform in the first place.

This is what BET Network had to say in response to Dash’s ignorant comments:

R. Kelly Opens Up About, Aaliyah, Bill Cosby And Being Molested In The Past

After dramatically walking off set during a recent interview, one could be forgiven for assuming R. Kelly isn’t interesting in tackling tricky topics.

img_20160121_124841.jpg

However, in a dramatic chat with GQ (presumably to promote new album ‘The Buffet)’, R&B’s Pied Piper sounds off on a number of controversial topics. Including, but not limited to, the Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal, his own childhood abuse, and Aaliyah.The quotes below are likely to shock…

On Being Abused As A Child By A Female Relative:
“[It happened] every other day, every other week” for multiple years growing up: As far as I can remember, about [age] 7 or 8 to maybe 14, 15. Something like that.At first, I couldn’t judge it. I remember it feeling weird. I remember feeling ashamed. I remember closing my eyes or keeping my hands over my eyes. I remember those things, but couldn’t judge it one way or the other fully.” [Over time, as I got older] I remember actually, after a couple of years, looking forward to it sometimes. You know, acting like I didn’t, but did… It teaches you to definitely be sexual earlier than you should have, than you’re supposed to. You know, no different than putting a loaded gun in a kid’s hand––he gonna grow up being a shooter, probably. I think it affects you tremendously when that happens at an early age. As I’m older, I’ve only learned to forgive it. Was it wrong? Absolutely. But it’s a family member that I love so I would definitely say no to that one. To be honest, even if my mom, I saw her kill somebody, I’m not gonna say, ‘Well, yeah, she definitely should go to jail.’ It’s just something I wouldn’t do.[Editor’s note:Part of Kelly’s forgiveness comes from his belief that the abuse stemmed from “a generational curse, so to speak, going down through the family. Not just started with her doing that to me.”

On Bill Cosby Allegations:
“Well, my opinion on that is, I don’t know what happened. I’m a fan of Bill Cosby’s from the Bill Cosby show, of course––who’s not?––and for me to give my opinion on something that I have no idea if it’s true or not, all I can say is that it was a long time ago. And when I look on TV and I see the 70-, 80-, 90-year-old ladies talking about what happened when they were 17, 18, 19, there’s something strange about it… If God showed me that they were telling the truth, I would say that’s wrong. I don’t care if it was a zillion years ago. But God would have to do that, because God is the only one can show me that. No man can tell me that. No woman can tell me that. And when you wait 70 years, 50 years, 40 years, to say something that simple, it’s strange. You know why I say that is because it happened to me, and it wasn’t true.”

On Aaliyah:
Kelly speaks at length about his relationship with Aaliyah but when pressed further to talk about their alleged marriage he simply responds, “I did the best I could by writing my book and putting it out there for whoever wants to read about Robert.” (As the interviewer Chris Heath notes: Aaliyah is not mentioned in R. Kelly’s book).

On Being Found Not Guilty:
Regarding the June 2002 trial in which Kelly was indicted for making child pornography (a jury found him not guilty), Kelly gets upset: “When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a murder case, it doesn’t matter what case it is, when they’re found not guilty, they’re not guilty. And I think that a lot of haters out there wanted to see me go down.” So when asked, point blank, if that was him in the video for which he was on trial for child pornography, Kelly pauses. “Because of my lawyers, to this day I cannot have those kind of conversations. Being advised by my lawyers in this.” Even though the trial period is over…. Heath pushes. “Because they could come back to haunt me,” says Kelly. “Things could come back and they can just restart all over again. And I have to protect myself.” {Source}
