Is Chris Brown in Trouble Again?
Chris Brown appeared in court before Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg today. The singer was summoned to determine whether or not he had violated his probation by traveling to Paris and an alleged positive drug test for marijuana.
According to Schnegg, she has approved all of the singers travels, but will look further into this trip. Records showed that Brown holds a medical marijuana license. Apparetnly the judge did not prohibit him from using drugs in his probation. Therefore, under legal grounds Brown did not violate his probation on those terms. However, Judge Schnegg did suggest to the media-spotlight star that he is not an average person and he has a lot of children looking up to him; meaning he needs to set a better example.

ANOTHER Texas Chainsaw Massascre is set to be released later this year and it features R&B sensation Trey Songz. He stated that he will not die off early in the movie (the traditional way that horror movies seem to kill black folks) and he will have one of the leading roles.
mmm, seems a lil fishy to me; for all we know he may die within the first 30 min.

In the world we live in today women are becoming just as successful as men. Things are becoming even and women are taking over offices instead of making bacon, they bringing home the bread. *blank stare*
So now more than ever women are faced with the choice to either date a man that makes less or wait until the "perfect" man arises. Chili, from the R&B group TLC, was faced with this question on Good Morning America. Check out her response below!

Clinton Pro Obama
"I want Barack Obama to be the next president of the United States" said Clinton during his DNC speech.
Former President Bill Clinton and Barack Obama
On Tuesday, Bill Clinton proved that he is still one of America's favorite Presidents. The former President's speech at the Democratic National Convention was not only thrilling, but it made the fight for the Republican party a bit tougher. Clinton thoroughly touched the issues of Obama's re-election campaign, implying that Obama gets the job done.
With clarity and precision, Clinton acknowledged the themes in his own campaign and compared them to the accomplishments of President Obama's first term. The former president stated that he and Obama have a similar platform.
Clintons' statement ,"We're all in this together is better than you're on you're own" ,takes a shot at Mitt Romney's platform that everyone is for themselves.
President Obama will be presenting his speech tonight at the Time Warner Cable Arena. The nation will be waiting to hear Obama's plan for the next four years if he is re-elected the president of the United States.

Frank Ocean has been on a tremendous run within this last year. Recording with Jay-Z & Kanye, releasing his first studio album, selling over 130K copies his first week and selling out every show on his tour. Drawing comparisons to a legend such as Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder was recently asked how he feels about Frank Ocean saying his first love was a man. Stevie responded saying
“Some people who think they’re gay, they’re confused…People can misconstrue closeness for love. People can feel connected, they bond. I’m not saying all gay people are confused"
Since those comments have been released people have raved and even have said that the comment was a direct insult to the "Novacane" hit maker-Ocean.
Stevie Wonder has then came out and re-adressed the situation by saying
"I’m sorry that my words about anyone feeling confused about their love were misunderstood. No one has been a greater advocate for the power of love in this world than I; both in my life and in my music. Clearly, love is love, between a man and a woman, a woman and a man, a woman and a woman and a man and a man. What I’m not confused about is the world needing much more love, no hate, no prejudice, no bigotry and more unity, peace and understanding. Period.”
After a season full of love, hate, hip-hop and egos, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta aired its reunion special part 2 last night. Part one of the reunion left viewers wondering whether or not Stevie J actually loved Joseline, and the fate of Lil Scrappy and Erica's off and on relationship up in the air. As the reunion of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta part 2 opened, Stevie J revealed that he in fact does love Joseline. As for Lil Scrappy and Erica, their ending seems to be a little more fairytale as Scrappy proposed to Erica at the reunion part 2. His words were: " Is you gon' marry a n***a?" Although, the ask was non-traditional Srappy and Erica's love for each other seems to be authentic. We wish them the best!
