It looks like her. It sounds like her.

Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby made an appearance as a 20-year-old college student on Judge Judy during the show’s fifth season.

In an episode reportedly filmed in 2000, Mosby, then known as Marilyn James, claimed a business owner  trashed her apartment while she was away for spring break.

The man, who owned a cigar shop below Mosby’s apartment, allegedly broke her door, left cigarette burn stains and a “disgusting” mess in her bathtub.

Throughout the episode, Mosby pleads her case rather convincingly. Judge Judy eventually rules in her favor to the tune of $1731.90 to pay the bills incurred cleaning her apartment.

Judy tells Mosby she would have awarded her punitive damages as well, but Mosby’s claim was only for bills. She was a student at Tuskegee University at the time.

“I feel like there’s finally some justice served,” Mosby tells the camera after…

L.A. Reid is trying to curb the public’s expectations of Mariah Carey moving forward, and the future isn’t as dazzling as Mimi’s wardrobe.

Mariah has just released her greatest hits album #1 to Infinity, but according to the record exec, it’s more like #1 to 2008 because that’s when she had her last #1 hit with “Touch My Body.” Her latest single “Infinity” didn’t even come close to cracking the Top 10 on the Billboard charts. It debuted at #82 (damn!).

As he told Billboard during a recent interview, the fact that she’s getting airtime on the radio is a victory because it proves her career has had staying power. “Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or…

Doing everything but paying attention to the road while driving

Originally posted on Talking Stuff:

According to research from AT&T, drivers are doing more than just talking and texting while driving. Many are now posting on Facebook and Twitter, snapping selfies and video chatting while driving. This is some scary mess. People, can we put the phones down and pay attention to the roads? I don’t know what’s worse. Drinking while driving or posting to Facebook/Twitter while driving.

Phones are getting smarter, drivers seemingly less so.

A survey released this morning shows that many motorists have expanded their behind-the-wheel activities beyond texting to include using Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, taking selfies and even shooting videos.

The survey was commissioned by AT&T, itself a phone company, but one that has invested heavily in discouraging distracted driving through its “It Can Wait” public service campaign. The telephone survey was conducted by Braun Research, which polled 2,067 people who own a smartphone and drive at least once…
