Singer Tyrese made a controversial statement during a recent interview, where he referred to obese people as ‘fat and nasty’. He also went into a complete tirade about how overweight people were that way because they ‘earned it’….

The actor/singer faced a ton of backlash about his insensitive comments and one StraightFromTheA.com reader reached out to me via email in anger about the comments.
subject: Tyrese’s comments
I had to reach out after reading Tyrese’s interview. I could not believe it!!! Being a thicka than a snicka sister and an ex loyal fan of Tyrese’s black a** I definitely went on Facebook and blasted on him. How dare he??? And if he finds us so repulsive we will see how his fan base diminishes…trust.
Anyway I thought about his interview and I did a search on google for pictures of his mother and POW there his black a** is standing between his mother and his sister and guess what they’re both thicker than me? So my question to Mr. Gibson would be….Bruh soooooo do you think yo ma & sister nasty? Ijs…until the next time be easy!
TinaB graciously forwarded over a photo of Tyrese posing with his mom & sister.

A viral video is making the rounds of a television news anchor who strikes back after a viewer criticizes her appearance.
Jennifer Livingston of WKBT-TV (a CBS affiliate in LaCrosse, Wisconsin) took a moment to respond to a harsh viewer email on air and turned it into a powerful tirade against online bullying.
Livingston read the viewer’s on air, which took issue with the fact that she is overweight.
“Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain,” the viewer wrote.
“I leave you this note hoping that you’ll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle.”
What came next was a response that I consider total awesomeness!

Fantasia Barrino looks amazing these days! Tasia revealed her hot new look via a few photos posted online and it appears she’s hired a personal trainer to help her shed the baby fat she picked up after having her son Dallas Xavier Barrino.
See in this industry a lot just let the Doctor Do it!!! CAUSE they can afford it. But that’s ok I’ll just work for it!!!! Black women lets Go!!
Some feel that Tasia’s comments were a shot at her fellow Idol, Jennifer Hudson, who famously shed a ton of weight through weight watchers (or gastric bypass depending on who you ask).

I’m almost positive that wasn’t a J-Hud diss. They both look amazing and while Jennifer seems headed for the alter, Tasia is still a bit unlucky in love these days… especially since her married boyfriend/baby daddy Antwuan Cook as kinda sorta paved the way for his WIFE to move forward with her lawsuit against the singer!

Jennifer Hudson was spotted yesterday arriving in NYC yesterday (June 19, 2012).
Hudson took a moment to sign a few items for fans in the airport but she recently made news after she personally PERFORMED a track written by a fan!
Ever wrote a song and wished that a big name singer would take the time listen to your hard work and even sing it one day. Well that’s exactly what recently happened for singer/songwriter Kirby Lauryen.
Kirby used her social media skills to get J.Huds attention via twitter and since Jenn loved what she heard, she performed the track LIVE during her rehearsals.
