Pray for Bobbi Kristina!!

Bobbi Kristina has been through alot during her childhood and this is the result of it. From the alleged stabbing attempt on her mom Whitney to a suicide attempt by trying to cut her wrist at the age of 15. Then drinking, drugs, partying and now an alleged sex tape!! Both Bobby & Whitney have tried to talk her into rehab but she refuses because she feels she doesn't have a problem with drugs.
These pictures have surfaced on the web of her lifestyle and this has to stop!! She is a beautiful & blessed young girl, that can have a wonderful future, if she wants it!

Please keep her and her family in your prayers!! They need all the support they can get right now!!!

Rebecca Black=Winning on iTunes & You Tube!!!

Ok Everyone, I waited before I decided to post a comment about this and I'm glad I did! This overnight Youtube sensation, Rebecca Black, is known for her music video "Friday", which received so many negative comments,as of this date has over 33 million hits on You Tube!!She has been trending on all the social networks!!No matter how bad her video may seem, she is laughing all the way to the bank!! Rebecca is like any other 13 year old, trying to pursue her dreams. She went to the Ark Music Factory in LA, who helped her accomplish her goals by writing her a song and filming a music video, which was included in the package deal for $2000, that her mom paid for. Rebecca said she did the song because it was a fun song for her age group. She didn't expect this outcome.
According to Black's song "Friday" has incurred over two million downloads. Based on Apple's payment agreement Black will receive .70 cents for every download. Do the math and that equals $1.4 million dollars. Now that payment agreement only applies to songs downloaded in the U.S. We were unable to find what Apple pays for songs downloaded outside of the U.S., but odds are that it isn't that much less. Take into account that her song is still selling strong and in the end you have Rebecca Black entering the millionaires club. You can also add $20,000 dollars made so far from all the YouTube views her video has had. According to Forbes, based on the number of views her video has received, and the payment agreement YouTube has with content uploaders who have ads on their videos, and Black will receive another $20,000. This whole story is quite amazing and ridiculous at the same time. The only reason that Black has received so many YouTube views and iTunes downloads is because her song is so bad. People who want to make fun of her are actually helping her become a millionaire.

For those who haven't seen the video yet- Here it is!! Remember Guys she's only 13, Don't be so hard on her!!! At least she tried!!!
Yay! #Team Rebecca!!! You go gurl- Get Paid!!!

Slide Show of My Favorite People!!


It seems so unreal but it is true, Nate Dogg aka Nathaniel Dwayne Hale has passed away on Tuesday in Long Beach, CA! Complications of multiple strokes is the alleged cause of his death.

The singer/rapper had two strokes; one in 2007 and one in 2008. Rod McGrew, Nate’s close friend and manager says that he was “95% recovered from the first stroke in 2007,” but when the second stroke occurred a year later, he became partially paralyzed and suffered from partial memory loss.

Nate was most notable for joining Death Row Records to work with the legendary Dr. Dre.
He made his recording debut in 1992 on Dr. Dre’s multiplatinum album “The Chronic” (Death Row/Interscope), which became the foundational document of G-funk, the smooth, lethargic style pioneered by Dr. Dre that was a central element in hip-hop’s crossover to the pop mainstream. After that, Nate appeared on Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Doggystyle” and 2Pac’s “All Eyez on Me” among other albums. His 1994 duet with Warren G, the platinum single Regulate (Def Jam), was one of the most popular hip-hop songs of the era.

Nate Dogg will be truly missed, but his spirit & music will live on in all of us! Sending my prayers to his family & friends.

Wounded Asheley Jewell recognizes mom's voice  |

Jewell, a Stephenson High sophomore, was shot in the head last Saturday night in an apparent road rage incident in south Fulton County. Multiple shots were fired at the car Jewell was riding in. None of the other passengers or the driver was struck.

"She is still technically listed as critical, but she does seem to recognize her mom's voice, and she makes attempts to follow simple commands they give her, like to squeeze their hands," her cousin, Ebony Phillips, told the AJC. "She can't really do it physically but there's a cognitive foundation they might be able to build on."

Jewell still has a lot of swelling in her brain and is sedated most of the time, Phillips said. But she added: "We're very, very thankful" for the progress.

Friends and relatives will hold a candlelight vigil for Jewell on Saturday near the site of the shooting. The vigil starts at 7 p.m. at O'Reilly Auto Parts, 5549 Old National Highway in College Park.

About 10:30 p.m. last Saturday, Fulton police said, two vehicles were traveling on Old National Highway near Jerome Road when one began pursuing the other. Shots were fired and Jewell, a passenger in the car being chased, was hit.

She was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she underwent surgery.

Police said it appeared to be a road rage incident, but that they're "looking into every possible motive." Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

Phillips said Jewell had gone out with friends to get something to eat.

"She wasn't even driving," Phillips said. "Whatever was going on between the two drivers, she had nothing to do with it."

Jewell is the daughter of the late A.J. Jewell, a "Real Housewives of Atlanta" personality who died in 2009 after a fist fight outside an Atlanta strip club. A club employee was charged with voluntary manslaughter, but the charge was dropped after authorities determined Jewell died from a sickle cell crisis.

A.J. Jewell was the onetime fiance of "Housewives" cast member Kandi Burruss.

Phillips said the vigil "is a step toward healing a family victimized by senseless violence" and "a call for justice in hopes that someone will come forward with invaluable information about this case."

My prayers are with Asheley and her family!! I'm praying for a speedy recovery!! xoxo
