His condition has not been updated, but it was reported that Freeman was extracted from the car by, “Jaws of Life.” Morgan Freeman was traveling with an unidentified woman who was also taken to the hospital. According to police at the scene, Freeman was responsive and conscious…I hope everything works out, I love me so Morgan Freeman…

André Leon Talley, Vogue editor-at-large, will not style Vanity Fair magazine’s best-dressed pick Michelle Obama according to The Cut.

“[L]et me go on record saying that I have never, ever given her any advice on what to wear. To put the record straight, I think that Michelle Obama does not need advice.”

This tidbit is great considering that Mr. Talley’s responsible for Jennifer Hudson’s Oscar fashion miss. Don’t you like Michelle’s style without Mr. Talley’s touch??

Ashanti and Cassie can be seen on a newsstand by you. Both covers obviously appeal to different demographics…

I wonder did they really have the money donated. It’s one thing to donate $4 Million for a photo when you’re rich, but $15 Million. That money can go into a trust for the babies when they’re 21, after all they’re the ones making the money…Meet Knox Leon and Vivenne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt.

Sunday Inspirations: All Good Things Will Be Added…

Posted by on Aug 2, 2008 in Celebrity News | 5 comments

Today’s sermon at church was about wisdom, but what stood out to me most was Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This of course reminded me of my favorite Cosby Show. I love all the episodes when Phylicia Rashad sings because her voice is so technically accurate. It just seems so pure… I believe I have played this song before, but I will use any excuse to play it again. In my life we have found it to be true, if you seek God first, amazingly you will have above and beyond what you thought you had…Just Try It, Give Him Your First & Not Your Last

Old School Friday: Motown

Posted by on Aug 1, 2008 in Videos | 10 comments

I just got in and I check my twitter homepage and noticed that SoulBounce made a reference to El DeBarge. There are two groups from the 80’s that I love, the first is Lionel Richie and the Commodores, and the second is DeBarge. To make a long story shorter, I realize DeBarge was a Motown group, and so here we are…
