There’s something about Beyonce’s infectious new single “Standing On The Sun” that makes us want to relax on the beach with palm trees swaying in the wind. She may not have released the track herself — it leaked to the Internet yesterday — but, like “Grown Woman”, I think this song could be one of our favorite pop hits of the year.
Bey’s hot new tune would surely make husband Jay-Z blush……..
John Obi Mikel getting distracted during an interview in Brazil has started doing the rounds.The picture, taken on the promenade right next to the beach, caught Chelsea’s midfield spoiler craning his neck around 90 degrees as the Nigerian international leered at the backside of a passing woman in a bikini.
No soldier deserves such a death in his homeland. The men responsible should be bought to justice and be executed. They deserve nothing less. Any religion that advocates violence should not be a religion.
What has this man done in his life to die in such a horrible manner? Such a senseless act.
Such a tragedy!! I pray that God will comfort his family and they will eventually find peace.
“People have got to understand that I didn’t just wake up and forget about my past. I think about it all the time. But I come from a real spiritual background, and my faith in God has a lot to do with me being able to go on each day. I realize that I can’t keep living in the past.” Missy Elliott
President Obama’s Inauguration ceremony on January 21 will be historic for many reasons. As tradition would have it, he will use the Lincoln Bible but will also use a Bible once owned by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.“We know our father would be deeply moved to see President Obama take the Oath of Office using his bible,” Dr. King’s children said in a statement.
Where were you at the end of 2012 when Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (Kimye) announced their pregnancy?
Well, actually, it was Kanye who spilled the beans: while live in concert in Atlantic City, the rapper paused his show to congratulate his “baby mama”, aka. Kim!
I’m actually happy for the expecting couple, and to offer my congratulations, I thought I’d round up three of Kanye’s best lyrics about being a parent! Check them out here…
“Hey Mama / I wanna scream so loud for you / ‘Cuz I’m so proud of you / And let me tell you what I’m about to do”From Kanye’s song “Hey Mama“, these lyrics were written for the hip hop star’s late mother, but they work wonderfully as a dedication to Kim and her upcoming motherhood.
“Yes, I did, so I packed it up and brought it back to the crib / Just a lil’ somethin’ show you how we live” Kanye’s “Champion” is a song written about his his father, which also fits into our parenthood theme. We know that when Mr. West says “crib”, he’s talking about his home, but we think these lyrics would totally work about their future baby’s actual crib!
“See, I just want ‘im to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life / Just want ‘im to be someone people like / Don’t want ‘im to be hated, all the time judged / Don’t be like your daddy that would never budge”Taken from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s effort Watch The Throne’s “New Day“, this beautiful ode to both.
US President Barack Obama speaking at a vigil for the 27 victims of the shootings at a Connecticut elementary school, says the US must do more to protect children. Mr Obama used a speech in Connecticut to urge the US to make the killing of 27 people in Newtown on Friday the last in a string of mass shootings during his presidency.
“These tragedies must end,” he told an interfaith vigil. “And to end them we must change.” As the president delivered his remarks to a secondary school hall filled with relatives and friends of the 20 young children and seven women who died, sobbing could be heard from the audience. Conceding that “no single law – no set of laws – can eliminate evil from the world”, Mr Obama insisted that this nonetheless must “not be an excuse for inaction”, asking: “Surely we can do better than this?”
Emboldened by his re-election last month, he pledged to use “whatever power this office holds” to prevent further slaughter, hinting that he would weigh into a policy debate frozen over the past decade by reluctance in Washington to alienate the pro-gun lobby. Yet the president’s remarks seemed likely to disappoint those from his Democratic party urging swift and decisive action on new gun control measures, promising only to “engage” with voters and communities “in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this”.
When I first heard this collaboration I was full of questions and had very few answers.
¤ What would they sound like together?
¤ Would Pink rap?
¤ Does Pink even like rap?
¤ Has T.I. ever heard a Pink song?
…so many questions!
Well, folks, now I have some answers in the form of the song itself, “Guns And Roses.” The song appears on T.I.’s latest album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head and it’s a super-poppy track that perfectly blends the rapper and pop-singer’s styles together into a song that is sure to be a hit.
BARCELONA, Spain — Lionel Messi, grimacing in pain, was taken off the field on a cart with a knee injury as Barcelona was held to a 0-0 tie by Benfica in a Champions League match on Wednesday night. With Barcelona already assured of advancing to the second round, Messi entered as a reserve in the 58th minute. Messi took a left-footed shot from an angle, then fell to the field in pain. He rolled onto his back and held the knee, then was loaded onto a cart.” Messi has a bruise on the outside of his left knee,” Barcelona said on its Twitter feed. ” He’ll undergo further tests to determine the exact extent of the injury.”
A three-time FIFA Player of the Year, Messi has 84 goals and Barcelona and Argentina this year, one shy of Gerd Mueller’s 40-year-old record for most goals in a calendar year for club and country.

Home-made “M75” missile landed in open ground in the West Bank, a short distance to the south-east of the Israeli capital. It triggered air raid sirens and panic in the city for the first time since the Gulf War in 1991, but caused no casualties. An earlier missile likewise failed to hit Tel Aviv, Israel’s commerical capital, landing harmlessly in the sea.
