WELP!!: Janelle Monáe Wants You To Focus On Her Music, Not Her ‘Amazing Body’

Posted by on Jan 11, 2013 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Magazine, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News | Comments Off

In an industry where someone having an incredible body becomes a tool to us for promotion, singer and Covergirl spokesperson Janelle Monáe has decided to keep that part of herself hidden so you can really hear her message.  Janelle is on the cover of Elle Canada this month and during an interview about her music she shared a secret that we can’t see under her tailored suits: she has a banging body.

“I started wearing this uniform, to be perfectly honest, because I have an amazing body.”

I feel my expression shift into the facial equivalent of “WTF.” Over the years, she has given many reasons for her sartorial choices – most often, she says the look is to pay homage to her parents, who wore uniforms while working as a janitor and a garbage-truck driver, respectively.

Tyler Perry Offers $100K Reward In Missing Persons Case

Posted by on Jan 11, 2013 in Celebrity Crimes, Celebrity News, Take Action | Comments Off

Even though I can’t say I’m too much of a fan of his movies, I do give Tyler Perry all types of credit for getting involved in anything that catches his interest, from the big Hollywood movies to the unknown stories like this one.  WENN is reporting that Tyler has stepped up and offered a $100,000 reward for information regarding a decade old missing persons case in Florida.

Terrance Williams, 27, and Felipe Santos, 23, disappeared from Naples just three months apart in 2003, after separate encounters with Collier County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins.  The men were never found, and on Thursday Perry spoke at a local news conference, calling on the media to give appropriate attention to the story – even though both victims are minorities.

And it seems that Steven Calkins was fired from his job from the sheriff’s office back in 2004 after he refused to cooperate with law officials during the investigation.  Sounds like some shady type mess!  Hopefully Tyler‘s generous reward will get some concrete information in and this case can be closed.

Oh, LaToya Jackson.  One of the siblings of the late, great Michael Jackson that should just permanently have a seat.  During a recent appearance on the TV show The Doctors, Dr. Travis Stork and Dr. Lisa Masterson asked LaToya if she had any question for them. As a matter of fact, she did. LaToya wondered why asparagus made her pee smell like diseased vageen.

The doctors then proceeded to tell her all about asparagus and why it does that but am I the only person that already knew that asparagus does that, thus avoids eating it?  *wide-eyed stare* I guess this was her first time having some. Yeesh.  Take a look at the clip below:
