This Doesn’t Look Like Kerry Washington, Though! Lucky Magazine Cover

Posted by on Nov 13, 2013 in Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Magazine, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos, Magazine Covers | 9 comments

Kerry Washington has been on the cover of many magazines, but Harpo, who dis woman?!? That’s not the Kerry Washington I watch every Thursday on ABC’s Scandal as Olivia Pope, perhaps it’s another famous Kerry Washington on this cover of Lucky magazine. According to our friends at Cotten Kandi, gladiators are outraged.

Sadly, many people are outraged over the skin tone. Really?!? They feel like Kerry Washington looks several shades darker. The color isn’t the real problem here. Black people’s skin color changes shades often throughout the year but they still look like themselves. Besides most magazines lighten their covers to make celebrities “glow”. The real problem with this cover is that someone at Lucky photoshopped Mrs. Asomugha beyond recognition.

Lucky about to have some bad luck…because that’s not Kerry. They better call Olivia Pope.

I did this to give people the opportunity to see what they are afraid to see or haven’t seen in mainstream media. Images like this of liberation, acceptance, and celebration redefine the ideals of beauty.

Jay Z definitely shows out for the November cover of Vanity Fair as he shows off his style skills on the front cover and also inside the magazine. Aside from great fashion, Jay Z discusses what dealing crack has taught him and he also talks about Blue Ivy wanting to hear Magna Carta Holy Grail.

My album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.

Idris Elba Shares Story Of When He Discovered He Wasn’t The Father Of His ‘Son’

Posted by on Sep 19, 2013 in Celebrity Drama, Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Lies, Celebrity Magazine, Celebrity News | 2 comments

In a world where shows like Maury and Paternity Court use the subject of paternity as a way to get ratings, its sometimes hard to remember that there are people out there who honestly get hurt by these things.  Celebrities aren’t immune either.  During an interview with GQ Magazine, Idris Elba finally shared the story about finding out he wasn’t the father to his ‘son.’  He’s never really shared what happened, until now.

He was dating a woman in Florida, had been for a couple of years. They were living together and in love. She became pregnant and gave birth to a boy. For a brief moment, it was among the happiest times of Elba’s life. “The celebration of having a son—from a man’s perspective, it’s massive.” He told friends about it. He told reporters about it. Then came the suggestion—not from the child’s mother, but from elsewhere—that not everything was what it appeared to be. “It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me,” Elba says. “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”
