Just off the top, this sounds really random to me. Most of the time when Cee Lo‘s name is mentioned as of late it’s in regards to The Voice or his unique fashion. But according to TMZ, Cee Lo Green is currently under investigation by the Los Angeles PD for sexual assault.
Our sources say detectives have already visited a restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles in connection with the case and questioned several employees, including the manager. We do not know if the alleged incident occurred at the restaurant.
The LAPD is mum on the identity of the alleged victim, when and where the incident allegedly occurred, and what Cee Lo allegedly did.
It’s amazing what kind of expensive items exist in the world and the people who actually purchase them. For instance, take Rihanna. She plans on releasing a $250 version of her new album Unapologetic, according to The Huffington Post. And if this sounds like your kind of thing, then don’t fear. It’s set to be available in stores on December 11th.
The singer is releasing a $250 version of “Unapologetic,” complete with airline tickets, caviar, champagne, collectible colored vinyls, a handwritten note from Rihanna, a 2GB flash drive, a t-shirt, lithographs, an illustration, stickers and — wait for it — a custom View Master with photos of Rihanna’s style throughout the years.
Also included: A 40-page notebook with more scribblings from the Barbadian beauty, a photobooklet, DVD, fan poster and a deluxe version of the album itself.
Just by the names associated with this project alone, it sounds like it’s going to be one hell of a great show. At least I hope so. According to Deadline, CBS has picked up Queen Latifah‘s The Queen Latifah Show with plans on launching it in the fall of 2013. Queen La is an executive producer of the show, along with her friends Will and Jada Smith.
The Queen Latifah Show will feature celebrity interviews, human interest stories, comedy, pop culture and musical performances. It is expected to showcase Queen Latifah’s talents, blending comedy and music into her hosting duties.
Hurricane Sandy has been damaging the East Coast starting Monday in an overwhelming way. MSN News is reporting that so far 17 people in seven states have been killed so far. New York has been receiving a lot of damage, as they’ve shut down their transit system and subways in advance. All over Twitter East Coast residents, including celebrities, tweeted pictures of damage. Ranging from anything to down trees to entire building fronts being ripped off, Hurricane Sandy is proving to be a force that will affect us all for years to come.
In an effort to get assistance to those in need, President Barack Obama has declared disaster areas in the hard hit state of New York. By declaring those areas disaster, this allows the government to assistance with clean up and aid. One thing that may be worth pointing out is Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has previously said that he would cut funding to FEMA, the government organization who assist when disaster areas are declared. Our prayers go out to all readers, friends and family that are in the area. Let’s hope this is over soon so we can all beginning helping each other and recovery efforts can start.
It’s Friday! That’s reason enough to be happy! And why not kick off the weekend with some laughs? I don’t know about y’all but Key & Peele are HILARIOUS to me. Made up of the comedy duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, they slang out skits and laughs on their Comedy Central series. My personal favorites are the Obama Translation skits — I’m sure if we could get into the mind of President Obama, he’s thinking those same things.
Today, I’d like to share a skit they did called Bone Thugs And Homeless. Key and Peele take on the persona of Bone Thugs And Harmony as they try to figure out how they ended up homeless. The harmonies they use are spot on, the makeup is on point and it DOES make you wonder about where Layzie Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Wish Bone, Krazie Bone and Bizzy Bone are today. Check out the clip below:
