Many celebrities have expressed grief over the death of “Soul Train” founder Don Cornelius and some have even sent their condolences online.
Authorities have ruled Cornelius’ death a suicide, but despite his decision to take his own life, many are choosing to honor his legacy by celebrating his contribution to music and creative expression.
Questlove issued a statement earlier today that expressed his sentiments as a child of the 70′s who grew up watching “Soul Train” and how it forever changed the young minds of urban America.
Here’s what Questlove had to say… Continue Reading…

In fact, NeNe could be considered somewhat of an expert being that she denied her own nasal surgery for so long…

Leakes only deflected news of her facial reconstruction to protect what would become her story line on the show, but she recently flipped the script to put her co-star Sheree Whitfield‘s nose on blast.

via the social networking site Twitter.
The pic was posted just days after Aguilera suffered a very “leaky” accident while singing onstage during the legendary Etta James’ funeral.

A “source” told U.S. Weekly that the unfortunate accident was due to Christina’s “spray tan” leaking down her legs, but the verdict is still out on the case of fake tanner gone awry.
As I said in my original post, sh*t happens! All women have had embarrassing mishaps with their periods at some point in their lives (and if you haven’t yet… you will).
Whether is was “fake tanner” or period juice, Christina’s “leaky” accident was publicized during a mass televised event. Humiliating? Most definitely.
But she gets mad props for keeping it professional and singing her way through it all.
Are you buying the spray tan story?

It has always been my belief that Black history should be taught 365 days a year just like “White” history, but since we’ve been dedicated the Month of February, we may as well make good use of it.
A letter from a freed former slave to his onetime master has recently gone viral.
The letter was written in response to an August of 1865 letter from Colonel P.H. Anderson of Big Spring, Tennessee, who wrote to his former slave Jourdan Anderson, requesting that Jourdon return to work on his farm.
After being emancipated, Jourdon had moved to Ohio, found paid work, and was now supporting his family. He responded spectacularly by way of the letter seen below, which was reprinted in the New York Daily Tribune weeks after it’s mailing.
It is quite clear in the letter, that the now free “Slave” felt some kinda way about his former Master’s request. The letter is a MUST read, especially in light of OUR history month so please take a moment to honor Jourdon by reading it in it’s entirety. Continue Reading…
