Eff cancer! I would like to end the post there, but I can’t. Adam Yauch aka MCA was founder of the best alternative rap group EVER!!!… is dead. Remaining members of the Beastie Boys confirm the news via their website:

It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam “MCA” Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation that produced the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits, and film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories, passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer. He was 47 years old.

Yauch’s mother Frances told the New York Times that her son died at 9 a.m. Friday, surrounded by family, at Manhattan’s New York-Presbyterian Hospital, to which he had been admitted on April 14. {via Huff Post}

It’s hurts! It just feels like all of the greats of our time is just passing away. I have been traveling down memory lane a lot due to celebrity deaths. I remember going to sock hops and doing the Peter Piper and the Quake to Beastie Boys’ Brass Monkey and Paul Revere *in my rolled up jeans with three different pair of colored socks*.  Yes,

WTH! Tamar & Towanda Braxton Attack Jill Scott On Twitter

Posted by on May 4, 2012 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Family, Celebrity News, Celebrity Twitter | Comments Off

Celebrities just need to stay off twitter, or better yet, thirsty celebrities need to stay off twitter. According to Ms Jamerica, Jill Scott is minding her own business on twitter, and decides to tweet a shot out to Mary Mary to promote their new reality TV show on We tv. Jill Scott is featured in Kirk Franklin’s Smile video along with Erica and Tina Campbell of the group Mary Mary. So naturally because both Mary Mary and Jill Scott travel in Christian circles, Jill Scott would want to support their new show, and so she tweets the following:

Well, Tamar Braxton takes the tweet as a dig, and decides to send one of her third person alters after Team Jilly. Notice the tweet just says some real representation. It doesn’t say Braxton Family Values isn’t real, and in fact BFV is not even in season right now for Jill to promote. But that does not stop Tamar from thinking the tweet is all about her.  Moments later sister Towanda gets on twitter and starts attacking, too. Finally, Jilly being the lady of class that she is, shuts down Tamar’s ego with these 140 characters:

Somewhere in a corner Toni Braxton is shaking her head, and yes, Tamar needs to grow all the way up.  Just because Mary Mary is “real representation” doesn’t mean Braxton Family Values is not. Those subliminal tweets will get you every time. Anyway check out Tamar’s reply when you continue…

Will Smith Says Raising Boys Is Easy & Marriage Is Indestructible

Posted by on May 4, 2012 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity News, Movies | Comments Off

Say what you want about Will Smith but I personally love him. He just always seems like a genuinely fun and great guy that never let any rumors get to him.  Will sat down with Shaun Robinson of Access Hollywood to discuss his upcoming film Men In Black 3 and what life is like in the Smith household.

“That Willow, she is, uh… See, boys are easy. Like, it’s really easy with boys. It’s like, until you can beat me in a fist fight you’ve gotta do what I say!”

LOL! I’m not sure that it’s QUITE like that but that’s probably not a far stretch, for most fathers with their sons.  Men In Black 3 will open on May 23rd, ending Will‘s three year hiatus from the big screen. I didn’t realize it’s been that long since he’s released a film! Glad to have him back though.  Check out a clip from the interview where he talks about his ‘indestructible’ marriage:
