I have to admit. I both love and get sad at seeing the grey hairs on Will Smith. For one, it does distinguish him and only adds to his sex appeal…but that’s the Fresh Prince, man! Fresh Prince isn’t supposed to age! (Aaannnddd I’m probably showing MY age with that reference so…moving on…) Will is currently down in Costa Rica, filming a new movie with director M. Night. Shyamalan called After Earth. And it seems the family tagged along.
After Earth, which is scheduled for a 2013 release, is the story of a father and son duo who explore an alien planet, after their spaceship crash lands there. The landscape looks beautiful, Jaden Smith is the spitting image of his dad, Jada is gorgeous as always and Jada‘s younger brother Caleeb is a cutie pie. Check out more of the pics Will posted on his Facebook fan page, when you continue…
Rush Limbaugh “finally” goes too far by launching a personal attack on Sandra Fluke, the only woman to address the health care issue on birth control before Rep Issa’s faux health care commission on birth control in religious organization. Rush Limbaugh is not only misinformed on who uses birth control and why, but on the fact that taxpayer money is being used to fund it. This is an issue regarding private medical insurance carried by religious companies in which women pay into. Sandra Fluke wants to make sure that birth control and hormonal therapy for women are included amongst the prescription drugs that insurance companies carry, and not banned from coverage because of an employer’s religious beliefs. In other words, this should be a private matter between a woman and her doctor, and not a woman and her employer. In the case of the Catholic church, who are ethically conflicted with the use of any birth control, although the majority of their members uses it, President Obama has created an opt-out clause that allows the insurance companies to cover the cost, so that the Catholic church can maintain it’s freedom of religion, as well as its moral stance on the birth control. Basically it’s a case about individual freedom of an employee versus a religious based employer.
In order to silence Fluke, and to marginalize the debate, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” three days in a row. After pressure from advertisers, Limbaugh finally releases a very rare apology. Sandra Fluke discusses Limbaugh’s apology this morning on The View:

Maia Campbell, daughter of author BeBe Moore Campbell, looks beautiful in a new interview with Get Noticed Media. It almost brings a tear to my eyes to see how far she’s come. Two years ago people were exploiting her mental illness and drug addictions for youtube hits, which made me so mad. Today, she is healthy and clean, and reunited with her daughter. Many bloggers, like Miss Jia, not only reached out to people close to Maia Campbell, but took a special interest in Maia Campbell’s story, and kept her lifted up in prayer. Two years later, she’s ready to get back to work promoting her new book, Sagittarius, while carrying on her mother’s legacy.
Maia Campbell also wants to get back into the industry. I don’t know about the industry, but at least she has celebs like Tyrese, Tracey Edmonds, LL Cool J, and Debbie Allen looking out for her best interest. Check out the interview when you continue…where she also reveals that she just lost her dad, after already losing her mom.
Well, I know one thing Fantasia Burrino sure knows how to create a buzz. If you have been missing from the scene for a minute, what better way to return, than with NeNe Leakes on your arm while wearing a velvet, a CRUSH velvet, cat suit and no make-up at the club. I’m not even going to take the bait, I will just say welcome back to the scene Fantasia! When is your next album coming out?
Check out a few photos of host Fantasia, special guest NeNe Leakes, and the crush velvet catsuit at the The Ultimate CIAA Party Weekend TakeOver in Charlotte at the NC Music Factory via Rolling Out.

While I love a great Broadway musical, I’m not sure that EVERYTHING can be (or should be) converted to a stage play. I would file this one right here in the category of “shouldn’t” but maybe it could work…*crickets* According to TMZ, Director Kenny Leon has written a musical that’s based off of slain rapper Tupac Shakur‘s music.
The musical isn’t about Tupac personally — it’s a fictional story about two childhood friends in a Midwestern industrial city and their extended families.
That should be pretty interesting, considering Tupac was a great story teller in his music. Leon wanted to get the approval of Tupac‘s mother, Afeni Shakur, before moving forward with the musical. So, what exactly did she have to say when given a preview of the musical?
