Bobbi Kristina - Family Reportedly Told to Prepare for the Worst, Father Releases Statement

Posted in: , ,

Bobbi Kristina, 21, the only daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, was found unresponsive in a filled bathtub on Saturday Jan 31. She was discovered by her husband who called 911 before she was rushed to the hospital where it was later reported that she was stable and still breathing. Some sites said she was in a medically induced coma because of brain swelling, and may be brain dead.

Now her father, Bobby Brown has spoken out on what happened, though he did not address the specifics of Bobbi Kristina's condition. He said in a statement;

"Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time." 

Author Roald Dahl Writes Emotional Letter Urging Parents To Vaccinate Children Against Measles

Posted in: , , ,

Roald Dahl is best known as the author of such books as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda. The children's author lost his eldest daughter, Olivia, to measles in 1962, and two of his books are dedicated to her. In 1988, he wrote this letter to parents in the UK, urging them have their children vaccinated against measles.

With a measles outbreak currently growing in the United States, I think many parents need to read Roald Dahl and his personal experience with the disease. Such parents need to understand the seriousness of measles, the importance of immunization, and why refusing to vaccinate "out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear" is a dangerous path to thread. For theirs, and for other children too.

Mariah Carey Caught In Lip-Syncing Fail As She Forgets Lyrics To Fantasy

Posted in: , ,

Mariah Carey was one of the performers at the 2015 Jazz and Blues Festival Friday, but in a part of her segment unflaterringly caught on tape, the music star - much hailed and loved for her vocal prowess - fumbled badly.

But in this clip, Mariah Carey does such a bad job lip-syncing to "Fantasy", one of her greatest songs of the '90s. She forgets lines, mixes it up, and adds new words, but not in a good way. We understand that a lot of singers and performers lip sync, but the professionals learn to do it so well that no one is none the wiser. I hope Mariah's doing OK, the divorce, her kids and all must be taking it's toll...

Man Walks Naked On Freeway Wearing Only Cowboy Hat After Snow Storm

Posted in: ,

Travellers on the metro Detroit's freeway were shocked over the weekend to see a naked guy walking down the middle of I-75 just after a massive snow storm. One of them, Francis Gojcaj was able to make and post this video after seeing the man walking on I-75 in Auburn Hills on Sunday.

Gojcaj was very concerned that he stopped to see what was wrong with the man who was wearing only a cowboy hat as he strolled down the middle of the snow and ice-crusted freeway in bare feet.
Luckily, as you can see in the clip, someone must have called police and they soon arrive.

Auburn Hills police say the man suffered from a crisis medical condition and was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation. Police say it is unlikely that charges would be filed in the case.

White Waitress Writes Viral Blog Post Defending Black Boyfriend From Racist Bullies

Posted in: ,

Ashlyn Sullivan wrote a blog post in December 2014 that is still buzzing over the internet. Ashlyn works as a waitress in Wichita, Kansas and she wrote the post because six drunk teenage guys had given her a hard time at her work and made rude comments about her relationship. She said she had tried to use her boyfriend to get them to behave initially, but things got out of hand when she showed them a photo of her and her black boyfriend.

Ashlyn says one of them resorted to racist abuse, asking; “Awh girl, why are you dating a n*gger? They ain’t gone treat you right.”

There was a blow up and it was later that Ashlyn wrote the blog post titled, "I am not dating a Racial Slur", and defending her boyfriend which has now gone viral. Read an excerpt below...

Kim K Gushes Over Kanye At Super Bowl After Party, Fans Slam Him For Mean Selfies

Posted in: , , ,

I can't talk about the Super Bowl without saying how knocked off I was by the Seattle Seahawks losing. For thefirst time, I watched the game from beginning to end, and actually understood and enjoyed it, except for the final minutes we flunked our chance to win. Too tense and sad for me. Anyway, the day has come and gone, and now it's time to move on.

Kim Kardashian gushed over the picture above of her husband Kanye West saying; "Love this pic from Kanye's performance in Phoenix over the weekend at the Direct Tv party!"

However, some other poeple are not so happy with Kanye West - who has said in the past he doesn't like smiling - because he took his mean mugging a little too far as he kept his poker face on for selfies with fans. See below...
