Meet Special "K" The Homless Rapper
Jimmy Kimmel brought out his “lie detector” once again on Thursday to determine who has been naughty and who has been nice this Christmas season.
The results were adorable and hilarious.
Check out the video below!
Kelly Rowland has a lot on her plate as a judge and mentor on this season of The X Factor.
The sexy singer has been bringing her A-game when it comes to style and sass on the singing competition show and her mentee, Jeff Gutt, just stole a spot in the show’s final round.
This week, she took a break from her hectic schedule to stop by The Arsenio Hall Show. There, she dodged engagement rumor questions with grace and spoke candidly about the constant comparisons to her BFF, Beyonce.
When asked about the sparkler she has been spotted rocking lately, she wasn’t phased at all.
“You know what I will say? I am VERY happy,” she said. “And I believe in black love, man.”
She also spoke on being referred to as “perfect” and her true feelings on following in Beyonce’s footsteps. Hint: she’s not.
“You should want your own path. I don’t want my sister’s path. I don’t want nobody else’s path. I want my own,” she said. “But it took me a long time to figure that out but the rest of the world is telling me something and I’m like, ‘Umm’. I had to figure it out on my own. I like my path. I got a damn good path. God knows what he’s doing.”
Check out the clip, below.
f you’ve tuned into any form of social media this morning, you’re well aware that Beyonce up and dropped an 14-track album on iTunes called Beyonce without warning anybody. Not even Jay Z knew. (Maybe.)
Well, with all eyes and ears and hearts focused on her this morning, Beyonce knew she had to take this opportunity to follow up with something meaningful. Really take advantage of her spot behind the world’s podium. Some more promotion, perhaps? A message to the fans? A new picture of Blue? Something!
Instead, she posted this.
A police chief in Ohio has slammed Kanye West for saying that performing puts his life “at risk” like a cop or soldier.
In an open letter on the Brimfield Police Department’s Facebook page, David Olivertakes West to task for his comments, sarcastically thanking him for his “dangerous work” as a rapper and suggesting that he put his talents to use by deploying to Afghanistan.
Oliver writes to West, “Your line of thinking is part of the problem in the world today… which include entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers.”
Check out the full text of the open letter below, and tell us what you think.
Dear Kanye West,
I am honored to be writing such an important star. I am a mere Internet sensation. I’m not sure I am worthy to address you, although the Huffington Post did say I was “Humorous and Insanely Popular.” I don’t pay much attention to those things. Anyway, please excuse my interference in your life for a quick second.
I read your interview and also watched it on video. You said:
“I’m just giving of my body on the stage and putting my life at risk, literally.….and I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
I want to thank you for putting your life on the line for all of us every day. I know that being a rapper is tough work. I have tried to rap, and it is very difficult to keep up with the pulse of the rhyme flow…although when Ice Ice Baby comes on the radio, I can usually keep up with ol’ Vanilla. Anywho, your job is just some very dangerous work. Most people don’t consider… if you rap really fast, without a chance to inhale, you could pass out and hit your head.
That last paragraph was covered in sarcasm. I’m letting you know, just so you do not think I agree with your very ignorant assessment of your career (or any other performer)as it relates to a person in the military or a police officer’s service. You sir, are as misguided as they come. I do have a suggestion for you. Since you are accustomed to danger, from your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately abandon you career as a super star and join the military. After joining, I would like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other forward locations where our men an women are currently serving. When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow. It could be something like “I’m Kanye West, wearing a flak vest.” I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck.
Your line of thinking is part of the problem in the world today….which include entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers. I know it is supply and demand and the demand for your services is high. I get economics. What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves.
Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver.

(Yahoo!) - Erykah Badu's done something that's not at all controversial.
The outspoken singer, known almost as much for her activism as for her music, appears in new adds for Givenchy's spring collection.
Badu, 42, explained to her hometown newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, just why she agreed to work with the brand and its creative director Riccardo Tisci.
"Riccardo's a fan of my style," Badu said of the man who memorably dressed Kim Kardashian in a much-maligned floral frock for the Met Gala back in April. "He told me he really wanted to work with me because he had a special campaign he designed for me. He sent me some of the photos, and I was super-honored; I didn't take it for granted. Fashion is my thing, and I am a big fan of Riccardo's — not just because of his amazing eye, but because of his spirit, what he wanted. He wants to give models of color an opportunity, and he chose me as the face for that campaign because he told me I fit what he wanted to represent"
In fact, the new collection is filled with Asian and African influences, with Erykah sporting tribal graphics and patterns. Her tresses, which were once regularly concealed with a head wrap, are completely pulled back in one shot and flowing in another.
What do you think of her look?
