This evening, Mary J. Blige’s rep released a statement on Mary’s divorce filing saying, “Ms. Blige is saddened to say it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would… but there is a divine plan and a reason for everything … Mary will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year, along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time.”
When she’s not touring the country or filming for her new miniseries, Mariah’s World, Mariah Carey is living lavishly and getting fabulous for her long-awaited spread in Complex magazine.
Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ed Hartwell have filed for divorce after just seven months of marriage. And I must ask, was anybody shocked by this news? Don’t worry, I’ll wait…
Michael Jordan is the latest celebrity of many to finally speak up and use their platform to address the issues that are currently plaguing our society: the unjustified shootings of African Americans and the killings of police officers.
About two days ago July 20th at 7 am in the morning in Capitol Heights, Maryland a man was senselessly murdered by an ignorant individual. The police are saying that this shooting was a homicide and are still looking for a suspect. Apparently what happened is this man had just finished pumping his gas and this boy walked up to him and shot him. The man was 68 years old and later died at the hospital from his bullet wound.
This really bothers my soul. We are sitting here worried about another race killing us but we are overlooking the things we do to ourselves do to ignorance and fear. But blacklivesmatter, right? So let’s start with fixing the brokenness within us. That is where everything will start because of course people and other races are going to see how broken we are and use that against us because it is a weakness.
So many people are claiming to be woke but are you really? Because the enemies right now are ourselves. Pray for this family pray for the world because whether he had motive or not that was someone’s father, dad, uncle, brother, or cousin.
We have to do better. The bloodshed is ridiculous and people’s mindsets are all over the place.
Who was as excited as I was for the new season of Power to air on Starz this past Sunday? Yes, the first episode leading into this new season of course had me wanting more and I love the direction that the entire storyline is going in.
I think Power and Empire are neck and neck as far as ratings go. And even though I love Empire I would choose Power over it anyday because the plot twist and just the storyline in general is much better. I love watching Power honestly more so because of the actors opposed to the actual plot.
Taraji P. Henson as you all know should know by now from previous post is my favorite actress and I believe she could turn anything around when she puts her mind to it. Then we have Terrance Howard of course who has been in the game since before I was born makes the show very interesting.
Of course I love the other actors but those are the OG’s and my favorite. As for Power I love the actors as well I just haven’t seen them in many movies that have been recently been all over the media to know their acting styles very well.
Which is your favorite?
We just got word that NBA said that they will relocate the league’s 2017 All-Star game from Charlotte North Carolina because of their newly found law. Apparently this law does not represent nor support the minorities and the NBA is not happy about it.
The law that has everyone so riled up is regarding the LGBT community. Following threats that were given towards the annual showcase event in North Carolina revoked the city’s protections for its LGBT community. Again, we don’t have the full story yet but we believe that the law had something to do with bathrooms.
The story is still developing but we all know that when it is developed it will be one for the books. The LGBT is one of the communities that are helping educate the public on sexuality and identity. We learn something new everyday and one major thing that we are learning is how to accommodate everyone without making anyone feel different or an outcast.
I hope whatever law that pushed NBA over the edge gets handled because as a nation we need to make strides toward becoming better humans of the earth.
