The Mugshot that Launched Thousands of Online Admirers For a Crime Suspect

Posted in: , ,

Jeremy Meeks, pictured above, along with four other people were arrested and four guns were seized in an Operation Ceasefire sweep in Stockton’s Weston Ranch area Wednesday. However, when the suspects mugshots were posted online, Jeremy became an instant sensation as people gushed over his handsome looks more than the crime he may have commited.

Comments like “he’s hot”, “is it illegal to be that sexy?”, "Sexy as hell nd cute", etc. accompany his picture posted on the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page. At the point of writing this post, Meeks’ photo has more than 25,000 “likes” and 6,900 comments on the post, most along the same line. On the FOX news page that first reported the news, the post has got almost 30,000 shares, 40,000 comments and 180,000 likes.

Let me not lie, the guy is fine, but arrested for possesion of arms, and with all those jailhouse tattoos over him? Nah, nothing to admire there. What about you?

Diss or Love? Chris Brown Calls Karrueche Tran The B-Word on Instagram

Posted in: ,

"This bitch scares me when she drive!! #goodluckeverybodyelse" This was the caption Chris Brown shared with the picture above of him in the car with girlfriend Karrueche Tran. The hashtag is a reference to an episode of family guy with an Asian lady driving recklesslessly, but even then, should he have called her "Bitch?"

This picture and caption is following an earlier one today where Chris Brown apparently expresses his love for Karrueche, calling her "A Real One".

So maybe this is another proof of how close the couple are and how they understand each other. But...hmm. For me, this is why I can't take their relationship seriously.

The World’s Youngest Mother: Lina Medina Gave Birth To Baby at 5 Years Old

Posted in: , ,

Lina Medina was five years, seven months, and 21 days old at the time of her son Gerardo’s birth, and she's the youngest mother on record. 

Lina’s parents were worried. Lina, one of nine children in this poor family of the Peruvian Andes, had a seemingly inexplicable abdominal growth — which was growing larger by the week.

Fearing she had cancer, Lina’s parents brought her to the doctor. The Peruvian girl was cancer-free; she was, however, seven months pregnant. Six weeks later, on May 14, 1939, Lina gave birth via Cesarean section to baby Gerardo, who weighed six pounds at birth.

Wendy Williams Show Gets Nurse In Protest After She Condemns Public Breast Feeding

Posted in: , , ,

Wendy Williams is known for stirring up controversy on the news of the day segment of her show, and now the talk show host is currently facing serious backlash for her opinions on public breastfeeding. While discussing Karlesha Thurman, the 25-year-old college graduate who posted a picture of herself breastfeeding her daughter at her graduation ceremony, thereby stirring a maelstrom of criticism, Wendy expressed her staunch opposition to breastfeeding in public, saying;

"I am all for breastfeeding, but do not like breastfeeding in public. I don’t want to see it at my kitchen table, I don’t want to see it at Target, I don’t want to see it at Starbucks, in the airplane -- and I especially don’t want to see it at graduation.”

To protest Wendy Williams using the platform of her show to pull down breast-feeding, 30 lactating mothers have protested in front of the studio of "The Wendy Williams Show". All the women were defiantly nursing their babies to protest the host’s dissing of Karlesha Thurman.

Mommy Blogger Lacey Spears Arrested For Poisoning Son To Death For Online Attention

Posted in: , , , ,

Lacey Spears told her wide online followers that from the moment her son Garnett was born, he was afflicted with never-ending illnesses. When he was only 5 days old, she rushed him to the hospital for an ear infection, with blood pouring from his nose. He had fevers, infections and, failed to add weight, she said. By ninth months, she said, he was using a feeding tube.

Now the boy is dead before his fifth birthday, and according to the authorities, Ms. Spears was the real cause of her son’s illnesses. Ms. Spears has been arrested and charged with the murder of her 5-year-old son on Tuesday, accused by the authorities of fatally poisoning him in January with an overdose of sodium.

Investigators believe Ms. Spears has a rare mental illness called Munchausen syndrome by proxy, that often involves a mother’s causing or inventing health symptoms so that her child gets medical care.

Jennifer Hudson in Bikini - Talks Weight Loss as She Releases New Music Video "Walk It Out"

Posted in:

Jennifer Hudson just released the music video for her latest single, Walk it Out which features her fiance David otunga in a cameo role. Did you spot him? In the video, JHud shows off her slimmer body in tights and a crop top.

The singer talked about earning her new body in a photo collage shared on Instagram where she is wearing a yellow bikini during a recent vacation. "It would take mexico to get me to play on the beach! I'm so not that girl! But I work hard, I deserve it right ! Plus, I earned it!"

Jennifer Hudson joined Weight Watchers in March 2010 as a star ambassador and managed to lose 80-lb. in two years, reaching her goal weight in November 2012, more than two years after she joined the program. She stopped losing weight at that time, and began to work to maintain the weight loss, eating healthily and continuing to exercise regularly since then. She parted ways from WW back in March 2014 but seems to have continued to keep the weight off. Kudos to her, she really earned her new body.

Check out the video, and share your thoughts.

Magazine Covers - Lupita Talks Acting, Fashion, Activism and Americanah on Vogue

Posted in: , , , ,

Lupita Nyong'o has been in Hollywood just over a year, but sometimes it seems she's been there much longer. A new article in Vogue shows us Lupita's backstory of interest in acting since she was a little girl and the hardwork and dedication to the craft that started over a decade ago.

Looking fabulous on the cover, Lupita goes on in the inside story to talk seriously about her family, and how she got the role of Patsey in 12 Years a Slave. She also confirmed she's dating Somali-born rapper K’naan, when she spoke about getting involved with him in African activism. An excerpt and more photos from the shoot below...

She keeps her private life just that. “The safest thing is when I’m indoors in my world,” she says, which for the moment is an apartment in Brooklyn. When she isn’t cooking at home (“I like to cook whole fish. And I make some mean salads”), she is enjoying the borough’s unpretentious restaurants and bars.

Prince William has been a father now for almost a year, ever since he and Kate Middleton emerged from the Hospital in London last July to introduce the world to their baby son, Prince George.

The trip gave the opportunities to see pictures of William's hands on parenting of Prince George, and also a look at the baby's clothes. Aren't they cute? Like father like son :)

Do You Agree With This Sex Advice By a Pastor's Wife to Young Brides?

Posted in: , , ,

by Ruth Smythers, beloved wife of The Reverend L.D. Smythers, Pastor of the Arcadian Methodist Church of the Eastern Regional Conference.

INSTRUCTION AND ADVICE FOR THE YOUNG BRIDE on the Conduct and Procedure of the Intimate and Personal Relationships of the Marriage State for the Greater Spiritual Sanctity of this Blessed Sacrament and the Glory of God.

To the sensitive young woman who has had the benefits of proper upbringing, the wedding day is, ironically, both the happiest and most terrifying day of her life.  On the positive side, there is the wedding itself, in which the bride is the central attraction in a beautiful and inspiring ceremony, symbolizing her triumph in securing a male to provide for all her needs for the rest of her life.  On the negative side, there is the wedding night, during which the bride must pay the piper, so to speak, by facing for the first time the terrible experience of sex.

At this point, dear reader, let me concede one shocking truth. Some young women actually anticipate the wedding night ordeal with curiosity and pleasure!  Beware such an attitude!  A selfish and sensual husband can easily take advantage of such a bride.

Niyola - Toh Bad [Music Video Romance]

Posted in: , , ,

The video for Toh Bad by Niyola is one I'm just seeing, and only because it was directed by Kemi Adetiba. I've become interested in her work recently. She did a great job here, Toh Bad is a lovely song, and the video quality is good.

I wish I understood more of what the song is saying but from the story line, it seems to be about when ladies date celebrities in real life. I don't really like the conclusion, but you decide.
