This one image of a dress has sparked a huge online debate for days now after a woman posted online asking:
guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out
What do you see? Is it white and gold? or blue and black? What color is the dress… ‘in real life’?
The fact that an image of an ugly dress could create an online battle is insane, but it’s hilarious nonetheless.
What started as an innocent question turned into a color war that’s lasted for over 48 hours. Many on social media have been arguing about whether the picture depicts a dress as blue with black lace fringe or white with gold lace fringe. And neither side is willing to budge… that is…. until they look again and the image changes color!
The dress even went ‘hip-hop’ when QuestLove got in on the fun, posting the dress several times on instagram stating:
But wait… this fight is about more than just social media, it’s about primal biology and the way human eyes and brains have evolved to see color in a sunlit world.
That being said, there is no debate. Everyone saw what they were supposed to see and it’s all totally scientifically explainable.

, the live-in brother/husband of Bobbi Kristina Brown
has been pleading with Bobby Brown online recently.
It’s been 3 weeks since Whitney Houston‘s daughter was found unresponsive in her Roswell, Georgia townhouse and with all the drama that’s surrounded her hospitalization, Nick still hasn’t been able to see his lady love.
Nick has reportedly been banned from the hospital. His last visit was Jan. 31, the day Bobbi Kris was found.
People magazine recently confirmed suspicions that Bobbi Kristina was no stranger to hard drugs like heroin, cocaine & xanax and multiple sources confirmed to the mag that was also a heavy drinker and often appeared to be high, slurring her words and seeming incoherent.
The family is understandably upset that this all happened ‘on Nick’s watch’ but he apparently feels that he has the cure for Bobbi Kristina and is begging and pleading for the family to let him see her.

Yesterday morning, I spilled the tea about Jermaine Dupri‘s rumored ‘tell-all’ ambitions…

The overall consensus seems to be that JD would be foul as hell if he chose to publish the intimate details of his relationship with Janet Jackson and his dealings with the Jackson family. After all… some things should remain sacred right??
That being said, Jermaine read my post (and I’m sure he read all of your comments as well) and he’s clearly feeling somekindaway about the tell-all ‘rumor’.
The super producer hit me up in the tweets to offer a response, stating:
Notice that I asked JD for an official denial, but I’m not so sure I got one. Details below… Continue Reading…
Last night, The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) aired Bill Duke’s ‘Light Girls’ documentary, the filmmaker’s follow-up to his exploration of colorism, Dark Girls (January 19, 2015).
Duke explores the pain, privilege and prejudice of light-skinned women in the new documentary, “Light Girls,” which is a spin-off of “Dark Girls.”

The Black community once again addressed ‘colorism,’ and Life Coach Iyanla Vanzant was there to lead the way as she detailed how hurtful words and name calling affects younger people as they move into their adulthood.
Diahann Carroll, Kym Whitley, Essence Atkins, Raven-Symone (who once proclaimed to Oprah her desire to not be ‘labeled’ any color) and more opened up about their harsh experiences as light-skinned black women.
“When I had my own show, I used to tan three or four times a week in a tanning bed to get darker. I did,” Raven-Symone revealed in the new doc in reference to her show, “That’s So Raven.”

NEWSFLASH! Idris Elba is aging quite nicely!
While Whasserface may have ruined many romantic images of the sexy actor with her claims of lost ‘love’, Elba still tops the food chain when it comes to Black male actors.

Elba has been getting a lot of buzz this week after word leaked that he was being considered for a role as the next James Bond. It also didn’t hurt that HBO aired a marathon of ‘The Wire’ series, which has been remastered into a high-definition version. Stringer Bell?? In hi-def??? HBO won that battle without any competition!
But I digress…
Idris recently responded to all the ‘Bond’ rumors and even sent out a cute lil selfie as a reminder of his good looks. Elba’s response + more photos of the extraordinarily handsome actor below… Continue Reading…
VH1’s latest reality show controversy stems from the fact that they had the audacity to create a reality show based around women who belong to African-American sororities.
‘Sorority Sisters’ features 9 women who are members of four different Greek-letter organizations, living and socializing in Atlanta.
The series just started and many already feel that it’s missed the mark. What could have been an uplifting storyline about Black professional college grads working together, participating in community service and showing how ‘sisterhood’ actually works, is instead a basic everyday reality show showing Black woman (and one token White female) engaged in ratchet behavior.

Shocked? I don’t know why you would be. It’s been proven time and time again that positivity doesn’t work in the long run. What pays the bills is entertainment and that’s exactly what ‘Sorority Sisters’ seems to be aiming for.
There was little to no sisterly love displayed in the premiere episode and Greeks and non-Greeks alike reacted on social media, slamming the show for perpetuating negative stereotypes and alternatively lifting #SororitySister to the top of the trending charts.
Here’s what the people are saying about ‘Sorority Sisters’ online… Continue Reading…
