SLAVERY – THE GAME TEASER TRAILER

[Thanks Lorraine] This is appalling but I’m not falling for it. No way is there a plan to put this “game” on the market.  I have a feeling that this trailer has been released to cause controversy and get the black community all riled up. Foolishness.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: ADELE

“I couldn’t believe Jay-Z knew my name. I fell to my knees crying.” [UK songstress Adele’s response upon hearing rapper Jay-Z  was a fan.] Yeah alright Adele calm down luv. Shaun Carter aka Jay-Z  is a former waste man from Marcy projects, Brooklyn NY who got lucky due to sudden tragic events in Hip Hop that shook the genre to it’s core, above average lyrical ability, top class producers and a strong team behind him. He is not The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.

UK NEWS: CHER LLOYD SIGNS TO ROC NATION

Tabloid rag The Sun reports that the over-rated and over-hyped Cher LLoyd has signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. A “source” disclosed to the newspaper, “Even though Cher didn’t do terrifically well in the X Factor finals, there’s been a hell of a lot of interest in her. All the labels are on the lookout for sassy, young female artists with bags of attitude, and Cher fits that bill perfectly.” Will.i.am’s backing only intensified the battle to get her signature.

GOLLIWOG DOLL PULLED FROM AUSTRALIAN STORE SO AS NOT TO OFFEND OPRAH WINFREY DURING HER TOUR OF AUSTRALIA

Via The Daily Mail A doll shop in Australia has withdrawn a female golliwog soft toy from its prominent window display to avoid offending the Oprah Winfrey roadshow Down Under. The store in Melbourne, Victoria, removed the ‘Mamee’ washer woman dolls following a visit by Oprah’s production company ahead of a personal appearance by the popular 56-year-old U.S. talk show host. Golliwogs are deeply offensive because of their perceived links to slavery and racism. But the Dafel Dolls and Bears shop in []

Those of you who tuned in to The X-Factor over the weekend should now know that this “talent show” is a complete and utter FARCE. The ridiculous Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel made it through to the next round (the live stages of the show) even though both failed to complete their auditions. A disturbing looking Cher claimed she had a sore throat and couldn’t sing, while Katie broke down in the middle of her performance and begged to “start again”. For some reason the “nations sweetheart” and convicted batterer []
