Sarah Palin defended the Tea Party against charges from the NAACP, that some members of the Tea Party Movement are racist. Let me first say not all members are racist, nor do all Conservatives support Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh. But apart of being American is knowing our history, and many blacks remember a time in America’s past where the words communist and socialist described anyone fighting against racism, or more specifically anyone fighting against integration. It seems absurd now, that a person would be called a “socialist” because they wanted to guarantee rights to all people no matter their skin color. Socialist and Communist were code words of fear-mongering often used by certain individuals who did not want their way of life to change. So the NAACP is right to be skeptic of certain members of the Tea Party who constantly call President Barack Obama a communist and a socialist because he’s not a Conservative. Let’s be real, why was the NAACP created in the first place?
I have gotten so many e-mails about Part 2 of Mashonda’s interview with Vibe. Well, it’s finally here! Mashonda talks about those infamous tweets that set it off, and confirms that Swizz Beatz admitted to an affair with Alicia Keys. Well, that settles it for me, it also explains why the other side isn’t talking.
So far, I don’t see a reason not to believe Mashonda. I am sure there is more to the story, but she sounds credible to me. I’m glad she spoke her piece.
You’ve mentioned in the past that Swizz repeatedly denied having an affair with Alicia. Did he ever fully come out and admit to it?
My husband admitted to having his affair on Mothers Day 2008, six months after I found out. I didn’t sleep for a whole year. I had to take pills to sleep because I’d wake up in the middle of the night crying. I couldn’t even look at my son some days because I didn’t have the strength and I never wanted him to feel my bad energy. It was a battle. They are just now going public, but this has been going on for a very long time. I refused to really break it down for people to understand because there was no way I could go around not making [Swizz and Alicia] look extra crazy and I didn’t want to put that out there for my son. I didn’t want him to see his father as a monster. But the shit is deep.
Just days after a very public split from The Dream, Christina Milian is spotted at a daycare, picking up an unknown child. Also just days after the split, Christina Milian is involved in a twitter beef with Funk Master Flex (details below):
Sometimes we (the media) make jokes about celebs like Christina Milian and The Dream, not realizing we’re hurting their feelings. As a culture that’s what we do, we play the dozens, but sometimes it back-fires. Yesterday on twitter, Funk Master Flex from NY Hot 97 made a joke about Christina Milian, and Christina Milian clapped back.
