Michelle Obama "Women Of The Year"

When I saw this I thought... "I know that's right!" Lol. Our first lady, Michelle Obama has been chosen for Glamour Magazines annual Women Of The Year issue.

A glimspe of the interview:
On how she keeps her sanity: “I have always tried to put my kids first, and then…put myself a really close second, as opposed to fifth or seventh. One thing that I’ve learned from male role models is that they don’t hesitate to invest in themselves.”
On how she deals with public scrutiny of her appearance: “People are always going to have opinions, and people have a right to their opinions, particularly when you’re the First Lady; you’re representing the nation. So I can’t be surprised that people are interested. But I’ve tried to be at peace with the choices that I make first, and then be open to everyone else’s reflection.”
On her dating advice for women: “Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul.. When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good… You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole.”
On mentoring: “I think that mentoring is such a critical part of the role I can play in this position. I see how little bits of exposure and big bits of exposure really change my girls significantly, and I want that for more girls around the country and the world.”
For the rest of the interview the December issue will hit stands Novemeber 10th.

Toni Braxton Photos

These photos are from Toni Braxton's video shoot for her latest single "Yesterday". She looks beyond great! I do miss Toni in the music world... glad she is still at it. The video is expected to release in November. The album is titled "Pulse" and will be in stores in 2010.

This Is It - Michael Jackon Trailer

I just got home from watching This Is It and I had to tell you how awesome it was. I encourage you to go see this because I walked out thinking, Michael Jackson is so inspiring... you think your grinding... until you see what he did his entire life. Wow... I loved watching him work with the musician, the dancers and bring his vision for the concert to production... he truly knew his craft. RIP Michael Jackson.

School Accidentally Hands Out Adult Chat Line

This just happened in California. Linda Vista Elementary School in California handed out t-shirts to promote and jog-a-thon coming up. The t-shirt had a motivational slogan "1-800-EAT-DUST"... ok no one thought to even dial the number Lol. But one of the teachers happen to dial it during the day... and what do you know??!! The number was to an adult chat line! This is too crazy lol... so the school recollected all the shirts before the children were dismissed that day. I just had to laugh because I never dial the number to those type of things either... but still... we need to be careful what we give our children... because if they would have taken those shirts home and started playing on the phone... that would have been a BIG Oops.

Morehouse College "Appropriate Attire Policy"

Morehouse College has installed a new rule in the dresscode policy... no Sagging! This is their attempt in getting rid of inappropriate attire. They are banning the "sagging" look and other styles associated with the Hip Hop Culture. The “Appropriate Attire Policy” initiative comes at the hands of Morehouse President Robert Franklin, who is seeking to reestablish what he’s coined as the modern “Renaissance Man.” That individual, Franklin states, possesses the “5 Wells” of being well-spoken, well-read, well-traveled, well-dressed, and well-balanced. Hmm... I know it will cause a problem on campus because there are those who won't want to be told how to dress. I personally like a "slight" sag in a man's jeans... emphasis on the "slight". But that look where the jeans come pass a man's butt and is basically hugging his thighs... is sooooooooooo whack to me! Just overboard. So I'm interested in seeing how this pans out. Sagging is said to have originated in the prisons, where prisoners were unable to keep their pants up because their belts were taken from them to prevent suicides and murder. Wow. Along with the new sagging ban, students will not be allowed to sport any form of grillz, do-rags, hats, “stunna shades,” hoods, or pajamas to class. Pretty long list... but about the PJ's... if they don't put some clothes on! Eww. Lol

Alicia Keys Album Pushed Back

She does have plans to release a second single, titled “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart,” which is slated to impact radio in the coming weeks. The title of that one alone makes me want to hear the song.

Lil Wayne Pleads Quilty To Gun Charges

It is official Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to attempted weapons possession charges today. Wayne is expected to receive a maximum sentence which is one year in jail, however, there is talk of him serving around eight months in prison for the offense. If you recall Wayne had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, but changed the plea to avoid a trial that was due to start January 20 because it could have resulted in at least three and a half years in prison. This guilty plea stems from an incident in New York in 2007 when police officers found a .40 caliber handgun during a search of Wayne's tour bus. At this point Lil Wayne has not made a statement.

Angelina Jolie Gains Another Role

Angelina Jolie is taking on another role. It has been reported that Jolie will be playing, Patrizia Reggiano, and if your unfamiliar.... Reggiano is the woman who was sentenced to almost 30 years in jail for plotting the 1995 murder of ex-husband Maurizio Gucci. This should be an interesting role to play. The film will take place in the 70's and 80's when Gucci really came about up until the point where unfortunately Maurizio Gucci was shot to death. No word on who will play Maurizio Gucci yet. Production is set to start next year.

WOO HOO!!!!! Thank you BET! I love this show like so many others... from twitter to facebook we are always talking about how we watch the reruns and why was it cancelled???!!! So I am happy to see that The Game has been picked up by BET to continue. The show will now be taped in Atllanta. According to an interview one of the shows stars, Drew Sidora had with Sister 2 Sister magazine. Drew Sidora said “The show is getting picked up, so for people that have been petitioning and wondering, it is coming back to BET,” actress Drew Sidora told to Sister 2 Sister Magazine this week. “So, hopefully, you will see me back. It is official. The deal has been done.” “Right now, they’re just trying to figure out when it’s going to actually come back, as far as when we start filming the new episodes and things like that,” “But BET has picked it up.”
Wow! I can not wait... I'll keep you posted!

Balloon Boy Incident Confirmed A Hoax

If these people are not OUT OF CONTROL! Who does this??? Like so many I am just like, mad that there are parents out there that would subject their children to such lying. SMH. But anyway, authorities have confirmed what we all were saying after seeing the little boy on Larry King... this whole thing was fake. The Heenes whole story came tumbling down when they themselves asked their son why he had not come out from hiding when they called his name. The son responded "You guys said we did this for the show." OUT OF CONTROL! So now that all this is out... it has also come out that the family has been on Wife Swap too... some people need to just go sit down. SMH. Hope the children end up ok because it looks like the parents could do some time in jail for this one.

This is just a shame! I mean, not that he can't afford another one but still... I know he was heated because I would have been. Recently, P.

SMH... Wow. But get this... the audience was frisked one by one and security came up with nothing... Hmmmm.

As I watched like many I'm sure, I was thinking... I never saw this coming.

Leona Lewis Attacked At Book Signing

Leona Lewis was doing a book signing in London for her new book Dreams when a man punched her in the side of her head! Now this stuff is so crazy to me. Why would someone think they would even get away with this. Your in a public place with plenty of people around since this is a "book signing" and you really think no one is going to catch you??? Duh. This man apparently bought a copy of the book and even waited on line for hours. When he got to the front of the line attacked Leona. She screamed and security jumped on the man. SMH. The man was arrested.

He talks with Oprah about being unclear about the details surrounding the tragic death of his 4-year-old daughter Exodus. “Because if I know, then there might be a blame for it. And if there’s somebody to blame for it, there will be a problem.” Mike also acknowledges his family for getting him through. “I was so happy that I had the tools in life, you know, to not go in that direction because I’ve been that direction. My family – that’s my biggest asset.” Sounds like a good interview... check it out today!
