Michael Jackson Shocking Footage Of Pepsi Concert Fire

Posted by on Jul 15, 2009 in Celebrity:Michael Jackson, Videos | 9 comments

I remember when Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire during a Pepsi Concert in 1984. I have seen photos of Michael Jackson being carried away, but this is the first time I’ve seen up close footage of the accident. The King of Pop suffered second and third degree burns to head and scalp. I don’t think Michael Jackson ever recovered  from that night:

Because it’s a slow news week, and because I know you are die hard fans of Ice-T and his wife, CoCo. And yes, I did say wife. All I know is that sometimes opposites attract, and sometimes it’s okay to pimp your wife. So for your hump day amusement, I give you Ice-T featuring CoCo. We could really have fun with a caption this, but y’all are too afraid too participate:

I love Keyshia’s momma Frankie like the rest of you, but don’t she think she’s getting a little too old for this foolishness!

She was spotted with her “fiance” LaMon hitting up a concert in ATL. The two even got a tattoo of the others name recently. Frankie’s is on her lower back while LaMon got Frankie’s name on his wrist! Check out the Video!

Nia Long Speaks Out Against Singers Turned Actresses!

pride magazine Nia Long Speaks Out Against Singers Turned Actresses!

The beautiful and talented Nia Long is featured on the latest cover of PRIDE magazine. She even did an interview where she talks about singers turned actresses who haven’t yet mastered the craft. Here’s what she had to say when asked about the movie ‘Obsessed’ and singer Beyonce.

“I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate?’ When you see certain people – we won’t name names – they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes,’”

She also goes on to say, “If you’re a singer not an actress, you should sing. If you’re a rapper, you should rap,” “If you take time to develop your craft, God bless you. Jamie Foxx is an example of both [actor and singer].”

She then adds “If you were able to take all the Black actresses and the choices we’ve made collectively, it’s a pure reflection of what you see on film. People need to work. But the content? The opportunities for Black actresses are more widespread today, but the quality has suffered.”

Many blogs and websites have already chimed in with their opinions and have even created the non-existent drama between Nia Long and Beyonce. Let me first say that I fully agree with her statement. However, there was no point in that quote where she mentioned Beyonce’s name.

I think most of us can agree that Beyonce is not a great actress but yes, a great singer and performer. Give Nia a break, I don’t believe there was any malice intended. Facts are facts and if Beyonce happens to fit the bill, well, what more can I say.
