Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand.”

, controversy erupted after 20-year-old actor Arias posted a picture of himself in bed with 13-year-old Willow on social media.

Jada addressed the issue saying , “Here’s the deal There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”

“Covert Pedophiles”……damn!!

BET to Present Lionel Richie with Lifetime Achievement Award

Posted May 20, 2014 2:05 PM By Deirdre B Pride
Lionel Richie2

Yeesss…..I adore this man’s talent.  This is long overdue.  Thank you BET!!!

Lionel Richie will be honored with the 2014 BET Lifetime Achievement Award.  Hosted by Chris Rock, the “BET Awards” will broadcast live on Sunday, June 29 from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

“I am extremely honored to receive the BET Lifetime Achievement Award,” said Richie.  “In Black America, it’s the ‘BET Awards’ where artists receive the highest recognition for their talent from their peers and fans.  I am so proud to be included in the extraordinary company of past ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ recipients.”

Lionel will join other stellar achievers like  Whitney Houston; Earth, Wind & Fire; James Brown; The Isley Brothers; Gladys Knight; Chaka Khan; Diana Ross; Al Green; The O’Jays; Prince; Patti LaBelle; Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and Charlie Wilson.

In 1968, against his parents’ wishes, Richie joined The Commodores, playing both saxophone and piano.  Just three years later, the group was discovered by Motown executives Skip Miller and Berry Gordy and given a record deal.  They began their international success as the opening act for The Jackson 5, continuing on to have a variety of chart-topping singles including “Brick House,” “Just To Be Close To You,” and “Too Hot Ta Trot.”  In 1981, under tutelage from some of the greatest names in music history, Richie decided to pursue a solo career, which made him one of the most successful artists of the 1980s.  He earned nine #1 singles, including many that are still celebrated in pop culture today – “Endless Love,” “Truly,” “Hello,” and “Say You (Say Me)” for which he won an Oscar® and Golden Globe.  To this day, Richie continues his work as a performer, writer, mentor, father and grandfather.  His three-decade career sets the bar for young artists looking to build successful life-long careers.

I am really excited about this one.  I love his music!! He’s from my parents era, but that didn’t keep me from loving his so-so smooth voice.  I listen to the Commodores almost daily. #TRUTH  If I had known I would have made plans to be there this year.   However, I do plan to have a correspondent there on the red carpet.

My favorite:e:  Zoom

Samuel L Jackson

Samuel L Jackson, “Have You Got Balls?”

Samuel L. Jackson is encouraging men to “kick cancer in the nuts” in partnership with testicular cancer awareness campaign, One For the Boys.  Sam emphasized that, “30 motherf–kin’ percent” more men die of cancer than women.

“So boys, don’t be dumb. If you really got balls, show them to your doctor. See Here at One for the Boys, we’d like to kick cancer in the nuts. We want men to know that it’s important to talk about this stuff, and if they like their balls as much as their life, better pay attention.  In the mean time her right now, I’m offering you the chance to hang out with me in London….fully clothed I might add.  All you need to do is to head over to mygoodness.com and buy a raffle ticket or a tank load if you’re feeling most beneficial for the chance to win.  Most importantly, the money raised goes to support One for the Boys and the amazing work they do to change the male mentality and the attitudes about cancer and encourage them to act openly about it.

 

Jackson is offering to spend the day in London with the lucky winner of a raffle raising money for the organization through charity crowdfunding website . The winner and a friend will be treated to lunch with SLJ, plus tickets to his charity fashion ball.  The raffle is open to US residents as well.   Sam says they’ll even fly the winner in and put them up in a night hotel to boot.

Petition Started Urging Beyonce and Jay Z to Make ‘RUN’ Movie Happen

Posted May 20, 2014 12:05 PM By Deirdre B Pride
Run

I have to admit that this is something I would like to see hap[pen as well.  Jay and Beyonce have been rolling with the Bonnie and Clyde game from the very beginning of their union.  To see it in a full length flick would kill the box offices and take their mogul to a whole new level.  Ending their recent promo trailer with ‘Coming Never,’ left fans disappointed and yearning for more. As of now the promo is nearing 5 million views. That has to be some kind of record. No? That said, devoted fan  Devante Jones took it upon himself to get the ball rolling in hope to getting the flick on the big screen.

After the release of Beyoncé and JAY Z’s “RUN” trailer which was released on May 18th, 2014, millions of fans across the world became devastated after seeing “coming never” at the end of the exciting and action packed “RUN” trailer. We, the BeyHive and JAY Z fans would love for our two favorite artists to actually make a full length movie based off of the trailer. Why? It would most definitely sell millions, it’s also cast so perfectly (Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn) and most importantly, it would make your fans happy.  We love you B and Jay, you two have to make this happen. Please, the world wants the “ON THE RUN” movie!

 

Yeah, you have to admit that the cast has a bangin’ lineup.  Don Cheadle, Sean Penn and Blake Liveley…… creme de la creme!!!  Oh and the soundtrack  would probably be sick.

.  Are you In?  Gotta make this happen.  Let’s get these two to brainstorming this thing real quick.

Ciara and Future Welcome Baby Boy

Ciara  gave birth very early Monday morning in Los Angeles.

The baby is the first for Ciara, who is engaged to rapper Future and expected to marry him in the fall.

"The Shield" Season Five DVD / Season Six Premiere Event

Actor Michael Jace, 51,  called police  to report that he had shot and killed his wife.   Jace called 911 around 8:30 PM and told police … “I shot my wife.”  Jace’s neighbors in the Hyde Park area of L.A. had reported shots fired in the home,  and shortly there after Jace made his call to 911.

Jace stayed on the phone, as instructed, until LAPD arrived and found his 40-year-old wife, April Jace 40,  dead.  Details are still sketchy, but Jace was reportedly home alone when his wife arrived with their kids,  a short time later he allegedly shot her.

Jace’s 2 kids witnessed him allegedly shooting and killing their mom.  The kids are both under 10, and were extremely upset and taken to the police station.  Sadly it  took Children’s Services 4 hours to get to the station and take the kids to the home of a family member where they could be comforted.

Jace who is bet known s Detective Lowe from The Shield, is being book for murder.

The FX police drama “The Shield” was the biggest and longest-running role in Jace’s 22-year acting career. He appeared in 89 episodes as Julien Lowe, who started as a rookie officer in an inner-city Los Angeles police precinct in 2002 and rose through the ranks to become a detective before the series ended in 2008, according to the Internet Movie Database.

He acted on several episodes of “Southland,” another TV drama about Los Angeles police, between 2009 and 2012.

Jace often played a law enforcement or military officer on television shows. He is credited with roles in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Private Practice,” “The Mentalist,” “Burn Notice” and “NYPD Blue.”

He had the title role of Michael Jordan in the 1999 TV movie about the NBA star, “Michael Jordan: An American Hero.”

Jace played Officer Brown in Russell Crowe’s 2009 film “State of Play,” and he portrayed a Black Panther member in the 1994 blockbuster movie “Forrest Gump.”

TMZ updates:

Michael Jace and his wife were locked in an angry argument over money before he allegedly murdered her … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We’re told  “The Shield” star was facing serious money problems and it became a source of family conflict.

There’s certainly evidence showing there was great financial stress.  TMZ has learned Jace filed for bankruptcy in March 2011.  He filed for Chapter 13, allowing him to restructure and reduce his mortgage payments.

Jace owed $411K on his South L.A. home where he shot his wife.  Jace stopped paying his mortgage and was on the brink of a foreclosure sale … according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Jace’s bankruptcy settlement allowed him to drastically lower his monthly payments, but he went delinquent again late last year.
