For those of you living outside of the US, who know nothing about baseball (like myself) and therefore not so familiar with Sammy Sosa he is a former major league baseball star. Click here for more information about Sammy.  I decided to post this story because it’s hilarious, sad and pathetic. Sammy who hails from the Dominican Republic recently turned up to the Latin Grammy Awards ceremony with lighter skin, straight hair and wore coloured contact lenses. He was obviously keen to remove the Afro-Latin from out of his system…. When accused []

TV star Angela Griffin has managed to bag her own daytime talk show on Sky Satalite TV. Angela and Friends can be seen on Sky1 HD and Sky1 -weekdays at 2pm. This woman fascinates me. She has to be the luckiest TV actress of colour in this country!

UK MUSIC NEWS: RAPPER CHIPMUNK SCRAPS PROMO AFTER ‘SUICIDE THREAT’ VIA TWITTER

I follow Chipmunk on Twitter and read his ‘suicidal’ tweets. I didn’t think he was being serious. I thought  he was being overly dramatic for the sake of it. Artists will say/do anything these days to generate publicity for themselves. But I guess in his case I was wrong … Via Digital Spy Chipmunk has cancelled all upcoming promotional appearances after “working too hard”. The 18-year-old, who topped the singles chart last month with Oopsy Daisy, posted a message on Twitter claiming that he wanted to kill himself. “I []
