Beyonce’s hometown, Houston, Texas, is planning to design a statue in honor of her.
CEO of the company creating the statue, Marcus Mitchell, said, “Our biggest thing is a lot of people get honored when they die, so our goal is to why not honor people why they’re still here? We felt as though it’s her time to be honored. We wanted to construct, like, a massive hall so as the doors open, if you donated to the monument, you’ll have a separate nameplate.
“There will be clips of Beyonce with Destiny’s Child and wardrobe like a mini museum. We’ve gotten support from the city of Houston, from the mayor.” Source and Source
This is ridiculous and awesome at the same time. Excuse me whist I book my trip to Houston.
Those of us that watched ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ last night, no doubt were glued to the screen when Sheree and Marlo went in on each other. The fight started over Sheree deliberately not inviting Marlo to a dinner at her friend’s home in South Africa. Marlo was pissed and confronted her. AT one point, early in the fight Marlo dropped the the F word. And I’m not talking about the one that rhymes with ‘duck.’
Well Marlo’s released an official statement about what she said. Peep it below:
It is with great disappointment in myself and sincere regret that I would like to issue to my friends, my most ardent supporters, and my followers, this statement:
“I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur. When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community.
“My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole.
“My first action, after the incident was to contact my closest friend and assistant of 8 years and to confess what I had done, to express my sadness and regret, and to ask him for his forgiveness.
“I was devastated at the thought of having hurt or embarrassed him as well as any member of the gay community and relish this opportunity to publicly apologize. My friends have embraced me, supported me, withheld judgment of me and have meant a lot to me over the years. I would never abuse their kindness and friendship and would never want to hurt them or demean them in any way.
“I applaud and admire this community for their triumph over a sometimes harsh, mean spirited society that discriminates and even violently attacks those who are different. These are obstacles that I relate to and that I have been inspired by them to overcome. I celebrate this community and am saddened by any indication otherwise, that my actions may have caused.
“I look forward to continuing to build my strong relationship with you, my followers and supporters, and those of you who do not yet know me and my heart. I look forward to work to regain your trust, respect and your love which has so empowered me over the years. I also thank you for allowing me to address you personally and to let you know how deeply sorry I am.
Twitter went apeshit the other night because Beyonce’s twitter page mysteriously turned into a House of Derion promo page. Bey fans have been wating years for Bey to tweet only to have her page start repping HOD and still not share any tweets with the 3 million + of them.
Uh, you don’t go and piss off Bey stans like that. It’s just stupid.
28. Oprah is NOT Blue’s godmother.
MTO reported that Jay-Z and Beyonce chose Oprah to be Baby Blue’s godmother. Well Oprah’s bestie, Gayle King says no way.
She told Us Weekly:
“It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother. She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away.
“Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born.” Source
I knew this story seemed of. Can I add that Oprah is damn near 60? If anything she should be the godgrandmother. I’m just sayin’.
Sources say that the LA County Dept. of Children and Family Services have recommended to that Nahla get counseling.
Police are investigating an alleged assault by Nahla’s father on her Nanny. Even though it isn’t believed that Nahla was hurt in the incident, investigators think she could benefit from a therapist. Source
I actually think everybody in this situation could use a dollup of
Flavor Flav’s daughter Dazayna, got locked up for assault. A family dispute turned physical and Flav tried to break up the fight getting hit in the process. Police were called and Dazayna was taken in. Source
That’s why you just let folks fight. Fcuk around and end up lumped up. Sidebar, Dazayna shouldn’t have been alone in that cop car. Flav and her mama shoulda thrown in the pokey for naming her that.
Rapper Corey Gunz was picked up this weekend for running around with a loaded gun. His dad, rapper Peter Gunz, said, “I spoke to the arresting officer, and so far, what I’m hearing from him is that they got a phone call at the station saying they should ‘look out.’ According to [the officer], they didn’t know he was Cory Gunz. They just saw a bunch of kids following him around.
“What I will say is that the officer that arrested Cory, actually happened to be a cool dude. After arresting Cory, sitting down with him and talking, he felt bad about the situation.”
Peter continued, “At the end of the day, there’s a reason for everything, but at the same time, in New York, it’s mandatory jail time. To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it’s heartbreaking. Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it’s very hard. He’s walked down some of the same paths that I walked down, but you never want to see your kids go through what you went through.
“This is Cory’s first offense, but sometimes they like to make an example out of rappers and people with any kind of celebrity to them.” Source

Omarosa felt the need to speak out about LeBron James joining the Miami Heat:
She said, “I’m still recovering from the whole Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James thing. I’m one of those Cavs fans that’s still nursing a broken heart, but we’ll get it together…Everyone wanted to focus on the owner [Dan Gilbert] and people suspected, ‘oh, he had these malicious thoughts about LeBron the entire time and he showed his true self.’ I think he’s just really hurt, and I’m not defending him in any way, because I don’t think his comments we’re appropriate at all. I’m just saying there’s a lot of hurt that stems from that. I mean, LeBron can do what he wants, he’s a grown man. And believe me, if I’m not happy somewhere I’m leaving too. But you’re talking to a person who grew up in Youngstown [Ohio]. Akron isn’t even an hour away from our home. I watched him on local TV, I watched him win local championships in high school. So I think I was a little more connected to it than most people.” Source
I’m hoping this is photoshopped because if it’s not I’m going to commence wrectching immediately. What in holy hell is running down her legs? I can’t even tell what color it is. Is it burnt sienna? Is it a dark maize?! Jesus be a pantyliner and make this nightmare go away.
Last week Amber was reamed out by her former publicist, Janero Marchand, who claimed she stole from Kanye…among other things.
Well her current publicist, James Campbell allegedly put out a press release riddled with typos throwing shade at Janero.
Both he and Amber have come out to say that the release was a fake.
Here’s the press release:
My name is James Campbell, Amber Rose’s current PR person. I would like to address the controversy regarding Amber and Janero Marchand. First off, I’d like to clarify that Mr. Marchand has never worked with Amber as far her public relations. Anyone with intelligence can obviously see that this man is using her as a target to market himself and leverage his name in the industry, which he obviously failed. Being a publicist for over 10 years, I have never heard of this maniac’s name or his silly company. Amber, her manager, Antonio, and I are entirely disgusted by this demented fool. It is an utter shock that this guy took the time out of his day to fabricate an email (supposedly sent by Amber) and a ridiculous story, and send it to blogs in hopes of it being a topic without any sort of apprehension of how this might effect her. I hope that his current clients on his roster (which i know is not much) realize how dangerous this phony is and quickly find someone else who is more qualified and help them become a topic.
