by Sean Black




"Chart-topping R&B recording artist Kelly Price is poised for the May 3rd launch of her sixth solo album, Kelly, while her second single release “Not My Daddy,” a silky smooth duet featuring the perfectly-paired vocals of Mint Condition’s Stokley Williams seizes a Top 10 adult R&B radio spot. All indicators suggest that the double-platinum songstress is back where she belongs—climbing up the charts.

Baring her soul in conversation, the accomplished Kelly Price pipes up about loving herself more than ever before, making a sorority pledge to public service, and lending her powerful voice to the heartbreaking ballads of breast cancer and AIDS".

THE LEGENDARY LENA HORNE




Lena Mary Calhoun Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010) was an American singer, actress, and dancer.

There is not an entertainer alive that doesn't stand on the shoulders of Lena Horne. She was one of the first African-Americans to have cross-over appeal and was a rare gem who excelled, even in a segregated America. She will truly be missed.

"Horne joined the mike chorus of the Cotton Club at the age of sixteen and became a nightclub performer before moving to Hollywood, where she had small parts in numerous movies, and more substantial parts in the films Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather.



Horne announced her retirement in March 1980, but the next year starred in a one woman show, Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music, which ran for more than three hundred performances on Broadway, and earned her numerous awards and accolades, and she would continue recording and performing sporadically into the 1990s."

Wanda Sykes....(I can't even think of a good title because I'm still laughing)


PICTURE TAKEN FROM GUARDIAN.CO.UK

Wanda Sykes did it again. I mean, she tore into the Republicans like they were a bag of Doritos. You know...I heart Republicans...some of my best friends are Repubs but I couldn't help but laugh at how Wanda Sykes joked about Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Some may think she was "too harsh", but think about it. Is anybody trying to censor Rush Limbaugh? I mean, personally, I'm starting to think he's in the Klan. He doesn't censor his words when he is attacking Obama or any Democrat for that matter. I don't understand how he can be the voice of the "religious right". Nothing He says or does remind me of Jesus. I'm almost certain Jesus will not be coming for Rush Limbaugh when he comes to receive his Church. Now, was that statement too harsh? Sorry if it was. We'd never get an apology from Rush though....ANYWAY! Enough about that man.

Wanda, if you are reading this, I want you to know that I watched the clip of you 3 times. I still laugh when I think about what you said. IT WAS FUNNY! Plus, on a serious note, I think you put into perspective how foolish the Republicans look and sound defending torture, hoping the administration fails and still letting Sarah Palin make public appearances. And please somebody tell Dick Cheney to shut up! They just don't get it. I demand an apology from the GOP. Who's the Anti-americans now, Repubs? Good job Wanda. And congrats on your new twins.
