Tyrese Says Mainstream Radio Won’t Play His Music Because He’s Not Sam Smith

Originally posted on HelloBeautiful:

File Tyrese Gibson under yet another artist who has a bone to pick with the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter has been pushing his newest album, Black Rose, really hard, but he has run into some frustration. “Shame,” the lead single from the album, which features Jennifer Hudson, has held the number one spot on Billboard charts for several weeks, but apparently the song has only been getting play on urban radio stations, and Tyrese wants more mainstream (read White) love.

“I don’t create limits for myself so I don’t appreciate mainstream not playing my song,” stated Gibson.

He added that Sam Smith, Robin Thicke, and Justin Timberlake all sing R&B/Soul music just like he does yet they get play on both urban and mainstream stations.

“We don’t say, ‘Because they’re White, they should be played only on the White stations.’ If I’m number one, my song deserves to be…

Originally posted on MyPraise 102.5, Atlanta, Inspiration, Gospel, Radio, WPZE:

Financial success looks different to everyone on this planet. No one has the perfect meaning of success although many try to accomplish the right look. If you want true happiness and long-term success, you must define what financial success means to you and have a vision of what success looks like in your own life. Think about it. Is it being self-sufficient, having multiple streams of income, a beautiful marriage and family, a great job or maybe a business of your own?

Financial Success looks different for each person. It’s similar to goals you have in life, some people are satisfied with much less than others.

•Here are a few examples of what financial success means to different people.
•Money doesn’t dictate any of my day to day actions.

“What if, I mean, there are times, I’m sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer,” Hasselbeck said during an interview with former New York Police Department officer John Rafferty. “Maybe chucked it at him — pushed it at him?”

Hasselbeck’s comment comes after she and Rafferty analyzed the arrest from start to end. Rafferty even makes a point to admit Officer Enciniacrossed the line and began to take the situation personal when he pulled Bland out of her vehicle.

It was only after Hasselbeck tried to deliberately make a point to justify Encinia’s aggressive arrest that Rafferty agreed he could’ve felt threatened…

Donald Trump & His PR Clearly Don’t Understand The Meaning Of Rape

Originally posted on 97.9 The Beat:

Donald Trump Presidential AnnouncementDonald Trump?s accession to the GOP presidential candidacy throne has been swift, but not without Trump-isms that read as glaring red flags not only in his presidential candidacy, but in his general life view.

Take, for instance, Trump?s inflammatory comment regarding how he envisions Mexican border control should be improved, labeling Mexicans as rapists and criminals. His reasoning?

“I mean somebody’s doing it!… Who’s doing the raping?”

Donald Trump and his PR team have a narrow definition of rape, though—one that excludes Trump, doesn?t fully encompass the meaning of the term, and trivializes victims.

The Daily Beastpublished an article last night critiquing Trump?s assertion regarding people of Mexican descent in light of the, until now, brushed-over skeleton in his own closet. The publication was careful in choosing its headline: ?Ex-Wife: Donald Trump Made Me Feel ‘Violated’ During Sex.?

By chance, I clicked, and the can of worms that…

Let’s face it, what women doesn’t want thick, long, naturally beautiful hair that puts all eyes on her and makes her the envy of all her friends? Our investigative team recently discovered that nearly all hair extensions go through harsh chemical processing (and much worse), yet there is ONE PLACE on earth where hair is donated naturally long and naturally wavy without the need for processing.

As our readers have noted, this is the “Holy Grail” when it comes to hair extensions because it means soft beautiful hair with NO shedding, tangling or chemical smells. And because the waves are NATURAL, they need very little effort to style. To understand just how special this hair is, let us take you behind the scenes of the how most hair extensions and weaves are made.

Gwyneth Paltrow came through in the clutch with some overpriced purses that nobody actually needs because she’s totally down for appropriating hip-hop culture, you guys!
Paltrow collaborated with Edie Parker on two clutch designs: One reads HOV on one side and SHADY on the other, while a different version follows suit, reading BIGGIE and PAC on either side. A clutch will cost you $1,695 a pop.

Gwyneth, nooooo. Why did you do this?

Of course we’ve heard before that Gwyn and Jay and Bey are, like, totally chill, but we have to wonder if the real Slim Shady would be down with his own moniker emblazoned on a really expensive clutch?

America’s Youngest Convicted Killers To Be Released This Week

Originally posted on The Urban Daily:

Curtis and Catherine Jones were 12 and 13 years old when they confessed to the brutal murder of their father’s girlfriend in 1999. Now the siblings, who spent their formative years behind bars, will be released to a world far different from what they once knew.

Curtis and Catherine lived with their father in Brevard County, Florida after their natural mother — who is White — left her children behind following years of domestic abuse. “Their father wouldn’t let the children go and the mother’s family did not want them because they were half-black,” Catherine told Florida Today.

Curtis and Catherine weren’t happy living with their father for several reasons; not only were they in a small home with their dad and his live-in girlfriend, Sonya Nicole Speights, but “welfare investigators found signs on more than one occasion that the siblings were being abused by a family member. That same family…
