R & B Diva Angie Stone is known for hitting some impressive notes with her soulful voice but according to Dekalb County Public Information she was recently arrested for hitting something else, her daughter.
Stone was arrested for aggravated assault for an altercation with her 30 year old daughter.
Long story short, Angie was fussing at her grown daughter who then got up in her face and laid hands resulting in Angie knocking her two front teeth out when she hit her with a metal stand after said daughter got physical with Momma.
Now what has not been revealed is that in that instant of hitting your mother the grown "A" daughter triggered a bad result of Stone's BMR (Black Momma Rage.)
If you have ever been present or on the receiving end of BMR then you know how intense such an episode can be. I remember rolling my eyes when my Mom was talking to me and the next thing I remember was the paramedics standing over me asking how many fingers were they holding up.
The paramedic said I was lucky to be alive and gave me a pamphlet on how to avoid episodes that would trigger my mom's BMR.
Just when you thought it was safe to use your double coupons on grocery day you get side swiped by Grandpa Walton.
A 92 year old man Russell Kerr was trying to get his minivan out of a Wisconsin Piggly Wiggly parking lot when his foot got stuck on the accelerator.
Bless his heart, Mr. Kerr panicked and went on a hit and run adventure in the parking lot resulting in 10 cars being smacked in less than one minute. Guess who's insurance premiums are going up next month?
“I can tell you in 23 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill.
Luckily no one was hurt but I bet folks are wishing they may have shopped at Food Lion that day.
So I saw this video a few days ago and wanted to say something about the incident but I had to marinate on this topic for a bit. The video entitled “Man smacks the soul out of girl on the NY Subway,” has gone viral on You Tube.
Apparently the video shows and I use the term loosely, "a young lady" verbally abusing a male passenger and basically being a hot, ratchett mess.
The male passenger at some point has had enough and says something back to the girl who then in turn hits the man with her purse and that is when all hell breaks loose and the guy hauls off and when I say slaps the black off this girl.
Well it is on and popping as a brawl breaks out between the dude and her posse. They swarm on this dude like a pack of urban banshees.
Now I am southern and old school and have been brought up that men should never put their hands on a woman but these rules seem to very archaic when juxtaposed to women who are not exhibiting very lady like behavior. This chick was no shrinking violet.
Miss thing was a loud, mass transportation riding she beast and a public menace. She was being rude, obnoxious and confrontational. Are men suppose to play by the same historical rules when the players have clearly changed in the game?
I mean if you are going to act like a dude should you not get checked like one?
My belief is that bear spray is non-gender....LOL Your thoughts?
We have a new victim of the “pray the gay away” propaganda machine. Some poor fool’s video has gone viral after declaring he has been cured in a come to Jesus, summer revival, Pentecostal display of and I use the term lightly “rediscovered heterosexuality” (Insert side eye).
Old boy is heard yelling, ““I’m not gay anymore. I’m delivered,” he said. “I don’t like mens anymore. I said I like women. Women, women, women….”
Boy please! Maybe if you keep chanting that you might still believe it but I am not convinced. Maybe it is the over the top antics…maybe it’s the fact that you found a paisley Liberace jacket in 2014 or maybe it was your next statement:
“I would not date a man,” the man continues. “I would not carry a purse. I would not put on makeup. I will love a woman.”
And if you were doing all that you were not just gay you were a drag queen.
I am so over folks thinking you should pray the gay away. You are gay you do not have cancer get over it and embrace who you are and walk in your own truth.
The Avengers Age of Ulton Trailer has been released and I keep watching it over and over again. I have not been this excited about a film since the first Xmen movie was slated to be released years ago.
I just want any world order event like an Eboli outbreak to be post poned long enough for this film to be released. Yes I am comic fanatic!
The Avengers Age of Ulton Trailer movie trailer boast a roller coster ride of action and thrills but the real reason I am so psyched about this film is they are finally bringing forth one of my favorite characters the sexy, red haired, vixen of spells and probability, The Scarlet Witch!
You guys know I love me some Divas so I am so glad we get to finally see the Scarlet Witch! She will be joined by her white haired speed demon brother, Quicksilver.
They have been prepping us for Scarlet Witch in both Xmen Last Days and the last Captain America film.
It is kind of fitting and full circle that Aretha would cover Adele since she like so many other young female singers from across the pond have obviously been influenced by seasoned divas like Aretha Franklin.
Aretha Franklin covers a range of divas on her new album including covers of "I Will Survive", "At Last" and "Nothing Compares 2 U."
If you have been living under a popular culture rock and or either tone death to the influence on popular music that Aretha has had, then you will be an instant fan once you hear Arehta cover some classic diva anthems.
You can check out Aretha's performance on David Letterman below!
Hey guys so I got some bad news from the editor at Creative Loafing that due to new ownership and recent budget cuts my Class Is In Session video blog has been put on hiatus just when it got started.
I was really frustrated at first but did not want to lose any momentum so I am self-publishing the next episode.
Like many of you I had to recently deal with getting an inspection sticker, tags, car taxes and the dreaded DMV. But since I did not address these issues in a timely manner I had been "riding dirty" or not street legal for a month.
Join me in the frustrating, manic and paranoid quest of getting my car street legal.
How can a man just jump the fence at the White House run across the lawn and walk in the front door?
Well that is exactly what happened when Iraq war verteran, Omar Gonzalez jumped the fence, sprinted across the lawn and entered the North Portico entrance. He was arrested and they found a four inch knife on Gonzalez.
I get followed at Target and in most retail stores all the time so how does one jump the fence at the White House, run across the lawn and up to the front door? This is not a drive by saint, this dude is breaking into the White House!
I live in the hood and thanks to my elderly neighbors I affectionately refer to as "The Women of Brewster Place" no one comes to my front door that the Brewster Women do not check out.
So if I get that kind of neighborly scrutiny then how does a man scale the fence and bumb rush the White House like a rogue Jehovah Witness?
This looks suspect to me. Are they trying to do a practice run to take out the President? And do not get it twisted, forget about Secret Service, Michelle Obama grew up on the South side of Chicago and you not just going to roll up in her house with her kids you might get a cap in yo butt!
Some folks are saying that maybe security would have been more responsive if the First Family was actually there but luckily they had left earlier that day.
So that's like my watch dog only really being on the grind while I am home but if I leave he just watches the burglar take my stuff. Really?
Hey guys I usually do not get into Disney films at least not since I was a kid and started with Fantasia but something about the Maleficienttrailer intrigued me.
So I went to see Maleficient today starring her royal fierceness Angelina Jolie.
Before I get started you know I always have to share my movie pet peeves. Folks who get to the film late and instead of finding a discreet seat on the side want to march and crawl over you to get to prime seats in the middle.
Also what is up with ushers who want to start cleaning while you are still watching the credits? Hey man I paid for this film so enough with the broom!
Rant over back to review.
Maleficient is a cinematic buffet of visual consumption that lay folks and film people will delight in seeing.
I am a fan of Angelina Jolie and unlike other folks I do not demonize her as a man stealing vixen cause really you can't steal a man who does not want to be taken.
Anyway Angelina Jolie gives such depth to the charachter Maleficient who has historically gotten a bad rap as the Mistress of Evil who curses the King's daughter in Sleeping Beauty.
Well the film Maleficient sets the record straight.
Maleficient is really an innocent fairy, one of the strongest of her kind and lives in a very cool fairyland but one day befriends this young boy who grows up to be a very trifling, backstabbling, no account man.
There are two rival kingdoms and the King wants all the resources of the fairyland. Typical greedy monarchies wanting to pillage other lands for their own greed.
Anyway the King attacks and gets a big old can of fairy whoop asshanded to him by Maleficient and some of her woodland posse.
The King wants to be avenged and who steps up but Maleficient's old boo.
This is where we see how old girl got her reputation but they left out the truth.
The trifling ex-boo basically roofies Maleficent and when she wakes up the next day instead of having her virtue compromised her wings have been severed and taken.
This ultimate betrayal justifiably turns Maleficent into a class "A", pissed off, Diva!
From this point on the story aligns itself with the more familiar tale of Sleeping Beauty but we do get to see that Maleficient begins to watch and nurture the growing child and takes on a motherly role in her life.
Who knew Disney could be so dark and edgy but I like this new look.
Maleficient is a very strong female role in that she vascillates between victim, villian and hero.
It is pretty cool to see a film where women do not need a man to save the day. This is all out girl power!
Disney has definitely flipped the script on their own historical formula. This is a great summer film!
