Grammy award winner and another of my personal favs, Mary J. Blige, opened the 6th and final game of the 2009 World Series with her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Mary’s hometeam, the New York Yankees claimed victory over the Phillies in a 7 to 3 win. I’m sure the players may have had a lil bit to do with it but was it a coincidence that Mary blessed the game with her vocals? Hmmmm….I think not.
Meet Cara Williams. Ms. Williams has been jailed in Clayton County for allegedly falsifying a police report.

A portion of Rihanna‘s 20/20 interview with Dianne Sawyer aired on Good Morning America this morning amidst all the hoopla about it being in her first televised interview since being battered by former boyfriend Chris Brown. In an emotional sit down with Dianne Sawyer, Rih Rih explains how she feels obligated to speak out about the incident in hopes of letting other women going through the same situations know they are not alone:
“There are a lot of women who experienced what I did, but not in public. I just felt like ‘Oh my God, here goes my little bit of privacy. Here I am the whole world knowing.'”
The pop star said how it was “embarrassing” that Brown was the type of person she fell in love with.
So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It’s a traumatizing experience…
Rihanna has released another single from her upcoming Rated R album and it’s title is as “Hard” as the song itself! With an abrasive party beat, Rihanna and my boo Young Jeezy rap about how “Hard” they are.
“Tougher than a lion/ Ain’t no need in trying/ I live where the sky ends, yup, you know this/Never lying, truth teller/ That Rihanna reign just won’t let up/ … The hottest b*tch in heels right here.”
In Jeezy’s verse, he talks about his progression from the block to the big leagues:
I used to run my block like Obama and them/ Don’t believe me, ask my momma and them/ Tell ’em give me back my swag/ They tried to clone me/ See my Louis Chucks, Louis flag, Louis flames, Louis belt/ What that make me, ‘Louis Mane’?/ … ‘Hard,’ if one word describes me/ If I wasn’t doing this, you know where’d I be.
So… in a word. The song is appropriately entitled,? “Hard”!
