Don’t I feel energized from a well deserved vacation and my oh my how the celebs have played while the Just Curious were away. Naked blondes running rampant, LA face tattoos, celeb spawns playing with snowmen *in my Jeezy voice* and that’s only a glance at the shenanigans that are Springing us forward…enjoy!
NOT MY GOD…
Who knew that people were still racist in 2011 *side-eye*. Seems Marvel is catching heat for casting the sexiness that is Idris Elbaas as the Nordic God Heimdall in big screen adaption of “Thor”. According to the “Statement of Principals” on the Council of Conservative Citizens website”
“the United States is a European country and that Americans are part of the European people… that the American people and government should remain European in their composition and character,” and thus “oppose all efforts to mix the races of mankind… to destroy or denigrate the European-American heritage, including the heritage of the Southern people, and to force the integration of the races.”
Story goes at Idris wasn’t commenting on the hate fueled comments, after more disrespect he did finally release a statement of his own, to everyone who has a problem with his casting:
“It’s so ridiculous. We have a man [Thor] who has a flying hammer and wears horns on his head. And yet me being an actor of African descent playing a Norse god is unbelievable? I mean, Cleopatra was played by Elizabeth Taylor, and Gandhi was played by Ben Kingsley.”
Well played and well said…now drama aside, who else is excited about “Thor”??
YEAR OF THE DRUNKENS…
Again I’ll say if 2010 was the year of the sex tape, then 2011 is indeed the year of the DUI charge. SMH that news anchor/ex-talk show host Rolonda Watts was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Rolonda was busted in the early am in Hollyhood over the weekend. After being booked at the Van Nuys jail, she was released on $15K. No word yet on how or even if this is going to her current on-air duties…
TO HELL YOU SAY…
Say what you will about Lindsay Lohan, but the girl knows how to work the system. How tigerblood is she that she’s pushing for a trail on the defense that the same surveillance tape people claim will prove her guilt will actually prove her innocence. Not only that spies say, she’s flat out refusing to go back to jail. Although realistically with her record any deal her lawyer, Shawn Holley, negotiates will more then likely involve jail time. In Lindsay’s defense the jewelry store in question was shopping videos, 4 in total showing Linds in the store on the day in question. Hehehehehe…you could have had one of them as your very own, when if you would have out bided Entertainment Tonight. No word yet on how much cake ET kicked out to gain the footage but bidding on the tapes started at $20K…who say LaLohan isn’t a damn brand?
WELL LOOKY HERE…
Rihanna’s security sure takes that protection thing seriously at least that’s what some are saying. Others are upset and think her security is clearly taking advantage…what say you?
SEE WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS…
BobbiKrisitina finally released a statement regard the photo of her leaked that looks like the poptart is snorting cocaine. According to BK’s twitter:
“The pictures_a former very dear person to me did this. Set me up to make it look exactly what it looks like. God will smite them yes..But it’s really not what it looks like.. People will do anything for money which is extremely sad, and I’m very hurt by this.Thing’s people do these days to hurt others is a shame. All I can do now, is keep my head up high, keep looking towards the lord.All the lord is telling me is be still. That’s all, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. #BeStill.
I love my family so much. My mom just comforted me to the max, and I’m so thankful for her. Thank you so much lord for blessing me with an Phenomenal family and incredibly phenomenal mother. Thank you for giving me the strength to move forward and put things in the past.
And the person that did this was a result of a horrible relationship that went sour. I was in love_ he was in love with money. I’ve learned My lesson. I’m so much greater and blessed for it today, and I believe nothing less. That is the last I will speak of this, let’s praise god And be greatful and thankful for your family, and people that truly love you, strength, courage, and life lessons learned. GodblessUall”
0_0 coke is not a joke indeed…so what do you think of BK’s honesty and statement?
AIN’T THAT A BISH…
If you’re one of the many still waiting to see Kanye’s official “Monster “ video, keep waiting. Word is, thanks in part to a petition submitted by Sharon Haywood and Melinda Tankard to MTV, their point is simple:
“The mainstreaming of videos like this increases desensitized and callous attitudes toward violence against women,” said Reist, one of the campaign originators.“Young people are seeing images and absorbing harmful messages which glamorize misogyny and brutalize women. Women are reduced to sex-doll like playthings. So great is the level of desensitization that the barbaric treatment of women and girls is seen as normal and to be expected. We decided to run this campaign because we wanted to challenge the status quo.”
How do you feel about the “Monster” video and the campaign Sharon & Melinda have started…<~JUST CURIOUS??
Columbus, OH PD have yet to answer questions posed regarding the arrest of Former WWE tag team champ Shad Gaspard. Shad was stopped for jaywalking, but was arrested for resisting arrest and obstructing official business. His wife Siliana claims it’s nothing more than racial profiling. According to witnesses Shad didn’t resist when cops busted him for jaywalking at the Arnold Fitness EXPO, he even got into a kneeling position when asked but instead cops shoved
After years of people talking about hip-hops negative influence and disrespect of women, the group Watoto From The Nile (consisting of a 9 & 10 year old little girls), decided to meet Lil Wayne on his own ground by writing and then rapping an “open letter” to Weezy questioning his disrespectful lyrics to the beat of “I’m Single”
According to the groups YouTube page: “Letter to Lil Wayne” is a direct statement of justice from Watoto From The Nile. Growing tired and fed up with the constant degradation of Black women inside of Hip Hop music, they voice thier views and opinions on this melodic track.” If you want to support their cause…cop their single for 99 cents HERE.
WELL HOW DID THAT WORK OUT FOR YOU….
