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?

Have two grand to spare and something to prove? Click here to buy on Gwynnie’s…

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…

Bobbi Kristina And Nick Gordon’s Home Filthy And Uninhabitable

After Bobbi Kristina’s untimely passing, stories are trickling in about the life she and boyfriend Nick Gordon lived in the weeks leading up to the drowning incident that ultimately led up to her death. Now, an anonumous source is revealing that the Atlanta townhouse the two shared was a filthy “drug den” that is now unlivable without extensive cleaning and repair.

Via RadarOnline:

The Atlanta-area home Bobbi Kristina Brown shared with Nick Gordon is such a pigsty that it will need extensive work just to get it into good enough condition to sell.

“It was pretty bad in there,” a source who was in the home shortly before Brown’s tragic accident tells RadarOnline.com. “It’s destroyed — no one gave it love.”

According to the source, the condo was practically uninhabitable. “Dog feces and stains were everywhere and the hardwood…

It seems like President Obama has run out of effs to give at this point in his presidency, and that he is speaking his mind a lot more, or trolling all the people who hate him so much just to upset them even more. He said Tuesday in a press conference that he could win a third term in office if he ran again, but that he is barred by the Constitution.

“I actually think I’m a pretty good President. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t,” Obama said during a speech in Ethiopia. “There’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving. But the law is the law, and no person is above the law, not even the president.”

Obama’s remarks come just after a new CNN/ORC poll found his approval rating standing in a positive range…
