So imagine my surprise when I saw this picture…Why would someone photoshop the President of the United States of America kissing another world leader, and think that it’s okay? Well, this picture is part of the Un-Hate Campaign from the United Colors of Benetton, which photoshops world leaders from around the world, including the Pope, embraced in a man-on-man kiss.
The images are very strong, but we have to send a strong message. We are not wanting to be disrespectful of the leaders … we consider them “conception figures” making a statement of brotherhood with a kiss.
This is no different from black face. I have to disagree with the Un-Hate Campaign on this one. There are so many proud gay and lesbian couples that would pose for this campaign. BUT
According to Huffington Post, two shots have been fired at The White House. Authorities are investigating the shots which hit one of the windows on the residential level of The White House, where the first family lives. No worries, the windows are bullet proof and seem to have done their job of stopping the bullet, but it’s interesting that someone could possibly get this close to The White House in the first place. The suspect has not been caught, yet, after a hit and run drive by on The White House. SECURITY! *in my Evelyn voice*
Get the details, when you continue…President Obama and First Lady Michelle were out of town on Friday when the shots were first heard, and authorities have just now found the bullets from the Friday incident…
In the midst of hearing about health issues for some of the most well-known music acts recently, this is really an awesome story to hear. Rapper Fat Joe has lost…*drumroll* 100 pounds!! And counting! That’s almost equivalent to losing an adult! Fat Joe opened up to CNN to discuss his life and weight loss.
Fat Joe says that all his life, all he’d really known was being over weight. He’s had diabetes since he was 14 years old. Food was love and the fame gave him greater access to enjoying all of life’s culinary treats. But it was what happened in 2010 that really changed this for him:
Last year alone, I had six friends die of heart attacks. Most of them were younger than me, but they were my same size. So I had one friend who was funnier than me. He was cooler than me. Obviously God loved him and he still died. I couldn’t believe that he died of a heart attack at 32/33 years old. He has a daughter my same age. And it was the weirdest thing. I went to his funeral. Not only was I sad, but I was just like, “This is me.” I couldn’t see a clearer picture of what’s the difference between me and him – of me being in a casket and my daughter running around the funeral home – and you know, she doesn’t have a dad anymore.
Check out the interview and get a better look at what he looks like now, after the jump…
I jumped the gun two weeks ago proclaiming, Kim Zolciak as married, but now I can officially say that Kim Zolciak is a married woman. Real Housewives of Atlanta, is slowly becoming just that, a show of real wives. BTW, Life & Style is reporting that Kim Zolciak’s dress cost $58,000. Congrats to Kroy Biermann who now has his hands full!!!

Lady Marmalade herself Patti LaBelle is being sued by a New York couple, who accuses Patti of yelling and trying to punch the mother of an 18-month old child.
Kevin and Roseanna Monk say they only decided to fill a lawsuit, after hearing about an incident in Houston with Patti’s entourage assaulting a West Point cadet. This ain’t a good look for Patti, yo! This is something…I don’t know…Mary J Blige would do. Don’t look at me like that. I like Mary but y’all know she’s straight hood. Check out the story of what they say went down in the lobby of a upper West Side apartment building lobby, after the jump…
