And Mya recognizes that but still feels the need to set the record straight while still letting folk kn ow that the DC in her never dies (and I know that's right!!! NE in the house!!). Anyway read Mya's blog post that was released recently --
“WHEN I SIGNED UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT BIZ, I REALIZED THERE WOULD BE A LIST OF PROS & CONS. ON THE POSITIVE SIDE- PURSUING MY PASSION, TOUCHING LIVES , SEEING THE WORLD THROUGH TRAVEL & PROVIDING FOR MY FAMILY. ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE-CRITICISM, DISAPPOINTMENTS, LIES, LACK OF PRIVACY, SABOTAGE, POLITICS, CORPORATE SLAVERY, LITIGATIONS AND NEVER ENDING FALSE RUMORS. THAT’S JUST THE WAY OF THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD, ITS MEDIA, IRRELEVANT GOSSIP SITES & THOSE WHO FEEL THE NEED TO CREATE B.S. AS THEIR JOBS AND EXISTENCE DEPEND ON IT.
SO TO ANSWER ALL OF THE INQUIRIES & QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LATEST RUMORS THAT HAVE BEEN CIRCULATING, NO… THERE IS NOT & NEVER WAS A “SUPER HEAD TELL ALL” BOOK OR SEX TAPE. NO, I DID NOT SHOW UP TO A CLUB IN BARBADOS IN WHICH I WAS FALSELY ADVERTISED. I WAS ONLY THERE FOR A CHARITABLE SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT FOR CHILDREN. NO, I AM NOT DATING ANY ENTERTAINERS, ATHLETES, CONGRESSMEN, MARRIED MEN OR BILLIONAIRE’S SON. NO I AM NOT PREGNANT, ENGAGED OR MARRIED. THOUGH CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL, I AIN’T ON THAT PAGE. AS BORING AS IT SEEMS, I AM A HAPPY, SINGLE WOMAN, ENTERING INTO ANOTHER YEAR OF CELIBACY & WORKING ON SELF.YOU WON’T FIND ME IN REHAB OR AA, YOU WON’T FIND ME IN A MENTAL INSTITUTION, YOU WON’T FIND ME IN THE TABLOIDS SHOWING MY TWAT. BUT YOU MIGHT FIND ME IN JAIL AND IN COURT FOR B*TCH SLAPPIN’ THE SH*T OUT OF SOMEBODY! SO PRAY FOR YOUR GIRL & THAT THE D.C. WILL NEVER COME OUT AT THE WRONG PLACE & TIME. THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT. ”
It's ok Mya! We still love you & seeing as though were from practically the same neck of woods - get at me so I can let you in on some of the techniques that work for me in restricting my DC from showing.
ABC News is reporting that the Obama girls kicked off inauguration night by watching High School Musical 3 and Bolt with some of their friends from their new school Sidwell Friends.
They then had a scavenger hunt around their new home to learn its history. (White House ushers had organized a similar hunt for Chelsea Clinton when she first moved into the White House in 1993.)
At the end of their hunt, according to ABC News, Malia and Sasha opened a door to find Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas (who had performed their hit "Burning Up" for the girls Monday night at the Kids' Inaugural Concert).
That is the cutest thing ever! If only my dad was the President he could surprise me with Tyrese.. I'd be eternally grateful. lol
"I found out when the whole world found out," he told Us in a telephone interview Wednesday. "I said, 'It looks white. It looks like mine...' I had a box of pizza and it nearly fell over. I was sitting there with my friends, and they were screaming."
Wu -- who has never met the First Lady -- said he was first approached last November. He was told Michelle "wanted something that sparkled. That was it," he said. "I just went for it."
Like its counterparts, The Source has in the past accepted ads that touted skin -- usually female models in various states of undress, today, The Source is taking a stand.
According to co-publisher L. Londell McMillan, the magazine will no longer take "booty ads" for pornographic films, websites or escort services."I realize the risk that we’re taking," said Mr. McMillan."We don’t want to just glorify the lowest-hanging fruit."
"There’s a lot of people that want hip-hop but don’t want some of the filth that some of the business carries with it."
Hoping to transform the often raunchy image of hip hop itself, McMillan says the decision to eliminate sexually driven ads was not an easy decision or stance to take but it had to be done.
The Source, he said, should be able to appeal to the core hip-hop audience, while also being something "you wouldn't mind your kids seeing".
Ok yea... did Obama have to take office for you guys to understand the effect that mainstream media has on our youth. Give them something positive and you'll get positivity back. Give them booty and all you'll get are diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
I'm just saying. For once let's call a spade a spade. Kudos to The Source for stepping up and taking "a stand".
The Pan Malaysian Islamic Party is demanding that Rihanna be banned from performing in the country due to her sexy outfits and the fact that funds from the concert would go to firms in the United States."Whether Rihanna realises it or not, we know that the taxes she has paid also contributed to the war in Gaza," says Kamaruzaman Mohamad, a PAS youth wing leader.
Kamaruzaman said that the show planned for February 13, part of Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" tour, would be an insult to Asian values as she often performed suggestively and wore skimpy outfits.
The event was "akin to insulting Eastern culture, belittling local artistes, internationally causing losses to the country's economy and supporting Israel's war policy, which is supported by America," he said.
This is a tad unfair, but in a country that could care less about women's right -- what can you really expect.
According to Jenna and Barbara the girls should:
“Slide down the banister of the solarium, go to T-ball games, have swimming parties, and play Sardines on the White House lawn. Have fun and enjoy your childhood in such a magical place to live and play.
When your dad throws out the first pitch for the Yankees, go to the game. In fact, go to anything and everything you possibly can: the Kennedy Center for theater, State Dinners, Christmas parties (the White House staff party is our favorite!), museum openings, arrival ceremonies, and walks around the monuments. Just go. Four years goes by so fast, so absorb it all, enjoy it all!”
Introduced by actor Denzel Washington, President Obama arrived at the Neighborhood Ball, the first of 10 tonight, but which he said best captured the spirit of his campaign. "We got the idea for the neighborhood ball because we are neighborhood people," Obama said. Organizers invited "everyday Americans" and not the high-rollers who financed much of the inaugural festivities.
Whispering to each other and slowly twirling, the Obamas took their first dance to Beyonce's stylings on "At Last," the classic Etta James love song.
When they finished, the crowd chanted "Obama, Obama."
Aww...they are so cute!||
