In a heartbreaking revelation yesterday, Rocsi Diaz from BET’s 106 & Park openly discussed struggling through an eating disorder in high school. The normally bubbly host broke down during the taping of the show as she described her use of diet pills and anorexic behavior in order to remain thin for her cheerleading team.
I commend her bravery in revealing this on television…in front of a live audience. Body image issues (especially in the entertainment industry) is common and while not everyone can openly admit that they binge/purge, use diet pills and go through other extreme measures to fit in to the industry standard of beauty, she did and I’m sure her story touched quite a few lives.

Did Michael Jackson predict his own demise in a song? ‘Morphine’ from the 1997 album Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix is being tossed around online and the question is being asked did the song actually foreshadow his death and reveal his Demerol addiction? The song starts off with the lyrics “He got flat baby/Kick in the back baby/A heart attack baby/I need your body.” But the verse about morphine substitute Demerol is what is creating a ton of buzz, particularly after rumors have surfaced that Michael had been suffering from drug addiction and abuse. Recent reports that Jackson was injected with the same painkiller just before his death also sparks the controversy surrounding the track.

Two idiotic DeKalb County officers are being investigated for allegedly performing a background check on President Barack Obama. Officials would not release the names of the officers accused in the July 20th incident, but they each have been placed on administrative leave after the United States Secret Service notified county officials that Dekalb County computer equipment had been used to do a query on the President.
The officers have not been charged with any crime (yet) but the county’s Internal Affairs division is handling the official investigation. When questioned about the incident, William “Miz” Miller, DeKalb Public Safety director stated that such behavior would not be tolerated from their officers.
“As Public Safety Director for DeKalb County, I want everyone to know that we take these allegations very seriously,” he said in a statement. “We expect our officers to adhere to professional standards and departmental policy. Furthermore, we do not and will not condone the inappropriate use of county equipment or resources.” (Source)
