VIDEO: RIHANNA COMMERCIAL FOR UNICEF TAP WATER PROJECT

April 2, 2011 Leave a comment

UNICEF has recruited singer Rihanna to appear in a new commercial which aims to raise awareness for the need of clean water in the developing world.

Contribute to the UNICEF Tap Project for a chance to win Rihanna Tap water.

For every $1 donated to the CelebrityTap campaign, UNICEF will provide safe and clean water to a child in need for 40 days.

I see UNICEF is using humour as well as celebrity to raise awareness for this campaign.  Well.. let’s just hope ‘Rihanna’s tap water’ actually makes a difference in the lives of millions of children living in the developing world.

RAPPER T.I AND WIFE TINY ARRESTED FOR DRUG POSSESSION

September 3, 2010 1 comment

Some of you will have heard by now that waste couple of the year, rapper T.I (real name Clifford Harris) and his wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle were pulled over by the police on Sunset Boulevard on Wednesday night after making an illegal U-Turn. The officers smelled marijuana in the car and then conducted a search of the vehicle and its occupants.

The couple were later  charged with possession of a controlled substance (allegedly ecstasy) and bail was set at $10,000.

This is bad news for T.I because the fool was recently released from prison and is still on probation for illegally possessing machine guns several years ago. Now he could face another spell behind bars.

Oh dear!

*Note:  Back in 2007, Tiny, who was pregnant at the time, and T.I. were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and ecstasy.*

………………………………………

Tiny just annoys me. I can’t believe this is the same woman who was part of a successful singing group (X-Scape), and has enjoyed success as a songwriter. Now she just spends her time travelling around with T.I (so the control freak can keep an eye on her) doing all sorts it seems, when they have three children at home that need raising. 

And as for her husband… all I can do is shake my head. Before he went in to prison he visited schools and preached to the kids about having regrets and turning his life around.  It’s laughable. 

Pair of idiots.

Why she felt the need to post this tweet I will never know...

ALICIA KEYS RECEIVES BLESSING AT ZULU CEREMONY

June 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Singer Alicia Keys and producer/fiance Swizz Beatz had their unborn child blessed in a Zulu ceremony while in South Africa for the World Cup.

According to the Daily Mail Alicia and her unborn child were given Zulu names while standing under a fig tree known as the “healing tree”.

As you can see it turned in to a ”media event’.

*rolls eyes*

But I understand that Alicia was chosen to receive the blessing as a thank you, for all the work she has done in the region.

I wish her the best of luck.

UK TV: ALESHA DIXON TO FRONT DOCUMENTARY ‘WHO’S THE DADDY?’

New Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon is to front a “personal” documentary examining the emotional and practical implications of children who don’t know their fathers.

Dixon, who has recently hit the headlines after being criticised for her performances on Strictly as the replacement for Arlene Phillips, will turn documentary maker for the BBC3 film, which will be made by production company Flame TV.

The programme, to be called Who’s the Daddy?, will feature Dixon – whose parents split up when she was four years old – talking to children and experts and exploring the repercussions of growing up without a father.

“The idea came purely from Alesha,” said producer and director Christina Nutter. “It is something that she feels strongly about. Her dad left her mum when she was four years old and she has grown up in a single-parent family, although she still sees her father. She feels strongly for children who don’t know who their dads are.” Continue Reading….

The title alone puts me off the idea of watching this documentary.

I wonder if Maury Povich will be invited a long to share his views? 

Anyway I first posted the news about Alesha’s up and coming TV project several months ago and I wrote  this….

Dixon will be fronting this documentary so it will basically shine the spotlight on young women from within the black community who are possibly unemployed, struggling to raise at least three children by the themselves somewhere deep in South London, because their ‘road man’ baby fathers just got up one day, left, and never returned.

Then the spotlight will focus on the black man who will end up looking worthless and completely irresponsible before the documentary reaches it’s climax.

Dixon will then visit psychologists, community workers, social workers, and a host of UK ‘urban’ personalities, to discuss finding a solution to this problem.

Then she will conclude with some words of wisdom Rev Run style.

The End.

My thoughts still remain the same!
