New Edition and solo R&B singer Johnny Gill hasn’t had much work so it seems. For years now he has been living with Eddie Murphy in Murphy’s house. As many of you may already know, Johnny had been living in Eddie’s house for years while Eddie was married to his first wife and mother of Eddie’s first children, Nicole Murphy from Greenhaven in Sacramento, CA.
Apparently, Nicole complained to Eddie and Johnny that his presence was not welcome but it seemed like Eddie was possibly “keeping” Johnnie–if you know what we mean!
She Had it All Before Keyon Pittman: The Carla Hughes Murder Trial Updated
She had it all. Carla Hughes was an out of the ordinary, highly accomplished child, teen and young adult. She excelled in horseback riding, beauty pageants, school council and so much more. Her parents’ home is filled with trophies and plagues of all of her accomplishments. They were and still are very proud of the little girl they named ‘Carla’. She was adopted by a close relative who could not take care of her.

This native born Kansas woman really is the best when it comes to much class, sophistication with a blend of jazz in her music. While most artists are going hip-hop and female artists are stripping it off, Janelle Monae is sharing her style of eloquence as she reaches her high notes. Janelle Monae is very different for today’s 21st century artists and better than black music artists in the world of hip-hop or any other genre. One of our journalist happened to be doing research on music artists on You Tube and discovered such a sensational music queen and very uniquely gifted as she sing so beautifully.
On June 23rd, Beyonce apparently was texting while driving when a cop pulled her over. It was said that she tried to use her charm and status on the cop and tell him she didn’t know about the law.
Unfortunately, the cop had no clue who Beyonce’ was and gave her a ticket anyway. Well seems like you just can’t use your celebrity status anymore to get away with your dirt. Sorry Beyonce’- maybe next time.
News reports also stated that she just received her driver’s license. Guess this explains her ignorance to the rules of the road. Right!! Just pay your $100 citation and be on our way… safely this time… PLEASE!!
Usually, if there is a genetic trait that an ancestor is white, centuries later a child may come out with light or fair skin, but this baby is purely white. For decades, the African Americans have taken a lot of time to proudly discuss a slave master who impregnated their fore-mother in the time of slavery and that is how they got some relatives with light skin. Most of the focus within the black community has always been skin shade, tone, complexion, whatever you want to call it, simply because of their resentment of dark skin. However, this couple is from Britain and they are not African Americans. The wife claims she never cheated on her husband. This baby is genetically pure white, no African ancestry, although the couple claim they have one (African) relative who is fair tone.
Is the case of Curtis Flowers racist? This case involves a man of Mississippi on trial for killing his employer, Bertha Tardy and three other people in a furniture store, execution style. For the past 13 years, Curtis Flowers has faced five juries for a crime he says he did not commit in 1996. Prosecutors are hoping this will be the last time and Flowers spends the rest of his life in jail, but the Supreme Court obviously has the last say and he maybe facing several more trials in the future until he is found not guilty. Why would it take several trials for Curtis Flowers to be on trial? Curtis Flowers has been in custody since 1997. Obviously, if it takes that many times to figure out if Mr. Flowers is guilty, it must be untrue. It is not fair to convict a man three times, then sentence him to death twice and then place him on trial, again, but-the Mississippi Supreme court must see his innocence.
