 a People Magazine interview, Michelle Obama shared that President Barack Obama still takes the time to tuck her in at night.

Tom Joyner News: Musiq on Love!

Clearly, I’m in the wrong business. What I should be doing is writing a relationship book, because all the criteria that you need for that these days is having been in a relationship at any point in your life.

In the case of singer/songwriter Musiq’s new book “143: Love According to Musiq” maybe an added asset is that you’ve written a few love songs. You’d think that R&B singers should be the most sensitive and understanding of men giving the beautiful songs they write, but any familiarity with the romantic history of most R&B singers would help you see that’s not the case.

Someone must have thought “Hey, let’s get Musiq to do a book” given that he’s best  known  for ballads like “Love,” “Don’t Change,” “143” and other romantic hits. “143,” by the way, stands for the letters that correspond to those numbers on a telephone keypad…

The best part of my day is when I receive photos on my phone from Phiona showing me the bright shining faces of the children in our home in Uganda. I had a long conversation on the phone with Phiona yesterday. This young woman is managing so much work for us and doing such a great job. I can’t wait to see her again. I could hear the pleading in her voice for me to get there because she needs some reinforcement. She would like to lean on me a little, and I understand.

 

The first Sunday that the children were at their new home they went to the closest little local church for worship. But this Sunday Phiona had them walk a little farther to a church I have visited with Abdul. A Korean missionary runs this ministry and I knew when we bought our land that we…

Which Celeb Is Refusing To Attend Her Father’s Wedding?

Originally posted on HelloBeautiful:

question markRumor has it that Bobbi Kristina is refusing to attend her father Bobby Brown’s wedding to fiancee Alicia Etheridge in Hawaii next month?

Sourcesare saying that Krissy can’t stand Alicia and flat out refuses to attend.

Bobbi Kris is still very angry over Bobby’s behavior at her mother’s funeral and says she will NEVER forgive him and doesn’t care if she never sees him or her siblings again.

These two don’t seem to have much of a relationship anyway. Whitney did tell Oprah in an interview that Bobbi Kris and Bobby were not really that close. But I do think she needs to have a relationship with him as he’s the only parent she has left.

Just saying!!!

When asked about President Obama in college, she said that “By the time he was in college, like so many young people, he realized that he could do more with his life,” Obama told Stewart. Ever the clever interviewer, Stewart tried to get Michelle to admit more about Obama’s past drug use, claiming that former President Bush’s ability to be “out there” made him more relatable, to which Michelle responded…
