James DeBarge, the drug addicted ex-husband of Janet Jackson, appeared on ‘Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers’ alongside two of his troubled siblings, Bunny and Randy, seeking some life changing therapy to help deal with their drug addiction and family issues.
James recounts how he was once suicidal and reveals that Janet’s big brother Michael Jackson talked him down from a roof…
I was going to jump and everyone was losing it… He [Michael] was the only one not freaking out!
He seemed to be familiar with my pain… He knew I needed someone to talk to, so he was that ear. We just talked all night and I forgot that I was even on the roof and that I was going to jump.”
The musical family is no stranger to problems. El DeBarge (the most successful of the group) just recently returned to the music scene after abruptly leaving his comeback tour to check into rehab.

Mo’s beauty is evident, but that internal glow may (or may not) be a coincidence being that rumors are swirling

Vivica A. Fox is clearly going through some changes and I’m almost positive she doesn’t give a dayum what we think!
The nip-tucked diva was spotted arriving to the premiere of ‘In The Hive’ in Washington, DC and while she’s not what I would call “unattractive”… Auntie Viv is definitely NOT the woman she used to be (but she looks happy about it).
I don’t know what Vivica’s done to her face this time but…er… umm…. something just ain’t right! And not only is the self-professed cougar “looking” different, she’s also switch up her style game…. Continue Reading…
The Dream dropped a new video recently that had me wondering ‘when the hell did he release an album?’
My question was answered by a quick google search which revealed his free (yes FREE) album, entitled “1997″ (released under his legal name Terius Nash).
So the video is for a song called “Long Gone,” from off of “1997” which you can get anywhere online for nothing. You can also watch his new video for free too, which he hopes will tide fans over until he drops his “real” album “The Love, IV: Diary of a Madman” within the next few months.
Is it me or does The-Dream’s love interest in the vid look an awful lot like his ex-wife Christina Milian?
Watch the official video for The Dream’s “Long Gone” below: Continue Reading…

Troy Davis, 42, spent 22 years on death row for the shooting death of Savannah police Officer Mark PacPhail in 1989 but he was freed on September 22, 2011 when the State of Georgia carried out the death penalty.
Davis was pronounced dead at 11:08 p.m. last night, but his execution did not put to rest widespread doubts about whether he committed the crime for which he was punished.
Davis’ case was one of the most bitterly contested and controversial in Georgia history, as he has always maintained his innocence even to the final seconds of his death.
While Casey Anthony is somewhere sippin on a slurpie free as a bird, while the daughter she was accused of murdering lies in a grave, Troy Davis was murdered by our “justice system” even though huge doubt exists in his guilt. Continue Reading…
