Trouble for the Mogul!

Kimora Lee Simmons is being sued by Macy's department store. So overcharging Macy’s for her beauty products and then refused to pay back the extra profit, according manhattan Supreme Court. In September 2006, four months after Simmons separated from her multimillionaire husband, Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons, she signed an agreement to provide Macy’s with her line of cosmetics. But then she allegedly jacked up the price of her beauty products. Simmons declined comment. Kimora is now not only facing a lawsuit from Macy's but is now also having to deal with her husband Russell Simmons' new girlfriend Porschla Coleman. The mother of two little girls Ming Lee and Aoki Lee is said to be dating Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou. Hope all goes well with the lawsuit.

Make a Difference

During this Christmas there are many children and families without presents, warm clothes, and even a Christmas tree. Instead of spending time and money on unnecessary things we all should try to take time and notice these people without. Think about what problems, diseases and mental issues they are going through each and everyday. Just this past weekend I walked into a group of students selling toys and asking for money for the children in the local hospital that will be spending their Christmas alone and sick. The toys they were selling were for toddlers and the money went straight to the hospital. Since the toys were not to my interest I brought the toy for seventeen dollars and donated it to the hospital. Little things that don't seem to matter really can make a difference.

It's mandatory for all resident students to have a meal plan with $1,300.00 and having it is the end of November I find myself with a lot of money left over on my storm card. So instead of letting the money be returned to the school what I think I may do is give it to shelters. Buy canned foods and other food for the poor and donate it to the Red Cross or even the campus ministry.

Pregnant Again!

Sources tell us that public most notorious is PREGNANT again! Britney Spears is a mother of two children with ex husband Kevin Federline aka "K-FED". Media and celeb gossips queens are having a field day with Ms. Spears lately. First she marries a back up dancer who was once before her ex Justin Timberlake's dancer. Britney then has two children with K-Fed, she then ends things with him and begins to go downhill. People say when she hung out with heiress Paris Hilton she began becoming this monster and not focusing on the important things in her life. She lost all connection with her mother, and then shaves all her hair off her head. She is accused of drug use and now cannot even have full custody of her sons.

So are we to now about to buy all the magazines that have her on the cover. Or do we not buy anything supporting this star, and let the paparazzi realize to let her be and live her own life with media. I say if she is expecting leave her alone and allow her to take full responsibility of her own life.

And the Winner is???

American Gangster an American Classic

Last Friday November 2nd was the premier of American Gangster. The following night November 3rd I went to the Battery Park movie theater to see the movie. Denzel Washington, Russell Crow, hip hop superstar Common, and TI are just a few of the amazing actors in American Ganger. In my opinion this is the best movie Denzel Washington has acted in ever! Although I wish I can say the same for Russell Crow. Russell Crow will still be known for his outstanding performance in Gladiator, and Cinderella Man. I have to say this is one of the movies to buy and collect when it’s released on DVD. I enjoying watching a “mobster” movie based on African Americans instead of Italians for once. I give this movie 4 star out of 5. Go see this movie ASAP.
