A 9-year-old girl in China has become one of the world’s youngest mothers after giving birth to a healthy baby boy. The unnamed girl had a Caesarean section at a hospital in Changchun, China.
She currently beats the record for youngest mother given to 11-year-old Kordeza Zhelyazkova of Bulgaria but no one has yet to top Lina Medina of Peru.
Line Medina delivered a baby in the 30s when she was 5 years, eight months old.
Police are currently on the hunt for the father of the 9-year-old’s baby.
In the girl’s province in China sex with a minor under the age of 14 comes with an automatic rape conviction and jail sentence.
A woman in Pennsylvania faces animal cruelty charges after police say she was selling what she describes as “gothic kittens”, cats she pierced in the ears, neck or tail.
35-year-old dog groomer Holly Crawford’s lawyers contend that she wasn’t trying to hurt the cats and used sterilized needles to perform the procedures.
The pierced felines were discovered after police got a tip about the woman selling the cats on EBay.
A woman pretending to buy a cat from Crawford says she asked her how the procedure was done.
Crawford gleefully told her that she used a 14-gauge-needle for the piercings; a needle commonly used on cows because their skin is so thick, and also said that she put rubber bands on the tail of kittens to stop blood flow so their tails would fall off.
Her trial began yesterday with testimony from a veterinarian that described the cats as “maimed” and “disfigured.”
SMH….some people do the craziest things.
I bet PETA’s pissed.
“We’re working on kind of like the male version of ‘The View.’ We’re working on that.”
As television shows become more and more accessible, more and more celebrities are signing on to take the reins.
Now the latest to express interest in television is Nelly who’s revealing aspirations to host a television show.
Speaking on Ocean’s 7 he confirms the rumors of an upcoming show to Black Voices Buzz saying,
“Not sure if you’re familiar with the Ocean’s 7 Crew. It’s me, Jermaine Dupri, Trey Songz, Johnta Austin, Bryan Michael Cox and Tyrone “International” Davis. We’re working on kind of like the male version of ‘”The View.” We’re working on that…”
According to Nelly, he and his Ocean’s 7 mega group would host a talk-show similar to the popular ABC daytime show “The View.”
Speaking on the concept of the show, Nelly compares it to a popular movie saying that it will have a similar concept.
“You ever seen that movie called ‘The Ugly Truth?’ You know how the guy had his show; well we’re working on that.”
No word on what network would pick up the show.
If this does happen, I can’t say I wouldn’t be watching….
After the shooting back in December 1999, the relationship between Diddy and Jennifer Lopez has been mainly non-existent but the surfacing of a J Lo sextape may find the two bumping into one another once again.
That’s right folks, a J Lo sextape is out there.
There have been reports that Diddy may be contacted to the witness stand by Ed Meyer, Ojani Noa’s business manager, as part of the proceedings over an attempt to release a video of Lopez filmed between 1997 and 1998.
Courtesy of her former husband, Noa, the initial plans to create a tell all book about the actress/singer that was diffused from a non-disclosure statement had transitioned to Noa coming together with Meyer, also a filmmaker, to release a “mockumentary” of his former wife and her sexual escapades.
A majority of the footage is reported to have taken place during the couple’s honeymoon.
Lopez was able to win an injunction thanks to her legal team which would block the release of the tapes under the stipulation that it was private and personal, but her former husband has ignored cease and desist letters.
Noa’s continued attempts to release the footage resulted in Lopez suing him for $10 million for breach of privacy and stating that the tape of her is “career ending”.
Hold on, so what does she do for a living again?
“Ojani’s footage is not a sex tape. In addition to kissing women, there are points where she’s lap dancing Ojani (and others). All with her clothes on. We’re trying to establish that it’s not a sex tape and therefore usable in Ojani’s movie,” said Meyer, according to The New York Post.
Meyer has described the film as merely being a parody and is protected by law, although he was unwilling to allow Lopez’s attorneys to view the footage.
Regardless of the pending suit, the tape should be finding its way to the local Internets sooner or later. Everyone get the popcorn ready for “How I Married Jennifer Lopez: The JLo and Ojani Noa Story”.
Back in the days of Kingdom Come Jay Z made the statement that 30 is the new 20.
Well currently coming down that mountain and hitting 40, time may be of the essence for Jay as he’s not getting any younger.
With his career at his highest peak since dropping Reasonable Doubt, the rapper seems to be contemplating the future outside of the music industry and what the next steps are to come between himself and wife Beyonce.
During an interview with Kingsize Magazine, the rapper spoke on the possibility of kids and becoming a parent.
“I’d like to be a dad some day and I love children. You start your life with expectations and dreams, then life unfolds and it doesn’t always turn out the way you imagined. Life is what it is. And at this point it’s up to somebody else.”
With Beyonce acknowledging her wedding ties during the awards, Jay added some words on being in a relationship and being everyday people that deal with everyday problems as a couple, no matter how much fame they may have accumulated while in the music industry.
“I don’t think there is such thing as a perfect relationship. It is unrealistic and hoping for too much. I don’t think it is worth all that pressure. We also have our struggles and problems.”
There’s no better time than now for the two to start making strong considerations as the money continues to pile up and Beyonce has stated that she will be taking a bow from the spotlight for a little bit to rejuvenate.
A baby by Jay Z and Beyonce…could you imagine the outcome of the cross?
These are 6 things that each and every grown ass man or woman should possess in order to stop the kiddie games and get real with their lives.
1. A HOBBY
“what’s the most important thing for a grown-ass sista to possess?”
you know, while others may respond to this question with goeswithoutsayings like “a job” or “an education” or “a passport” or “a genius-level command of their gag reflex“, an actual hobby that doesn’t involve meeting men or buying blahniks is usually the first answer i think of. nothing says “i’m grown the f*ck up” more than a woman who has genuine interests, enthusiasms, and curiosities, and actually makes time to partake in and pursue them.
despite this, there still remains a somewhat sizable sista sub-species of seemingly “grown” walking, talking, vagina zombies with no discernible interests infecting the dating game with their uninteresting-ass e coli, and i’m curious to find out how this happened. it’s almost as if they all took the exact same “how to be a hobbyless ho 101″ course their freshman year at howard
like i said before, when a woman tells me that she doesn’t really get along with other women, i interpret it as code for one of two things
a) “i don’t really get along with other women anymore because i’m a backstabbing b*tch who usually tries to steal their boyfriends”
b) “because i don’t have any friends, i’m going to expect any man i happen to be with to be my sole entertainment for the duration of the relationship”
seriously though, if you’re over 25, you’ve been on the planet long enough to cultivate at least one or two good relationships with someone else in your peer group, and you probably shouldn’t go around calling yourself a grown-up until you’re able to.
3. SIZE, AGE, and SITUATION APPROPRIATE CLOTHING
4. ORGASM OWNERSHIP
if you’re a sexually active woman, the “i’m completely and utterly clueless about my vagina and have no idea how to make myself climax” sympathy card expires a month after your 27th birthday, and you probably should pencil in a permanent reservation at the kiddle table during thanksgivings until your “too old to be shook by my own snatch” ass figures it out.
5. NICE HAIR
whether you’re rocking braids or a baldy, a bob or a halle, deceiving weave or the “spelman pullback”, a grown-ass sista should know a) how to handle your do, b) which do is most appropriate for you, and c) how not to leave the house looking like one of those tragic maury povich mulattoes whose mothers have no f*cking clue what to do
6. A GO-TO DUDE
whether its her dad, her cousin ronnie, her grade school vice-principal, or vsb, every grown-ass sista should have at least one (heterosexual!) male in her life that’ll give it to her straight with no chaser whenever she needs to know “what does it mean when he says that he only wants to see me between 3 and 3:45am on the weekends?” and other deep insights about the mysterious male mind
1) A BARBER
Unless you rock a baldy, every grown a** man needs to have a barber to keep him looking professional and presentable. Hell, the only person higher up on the ladder than a Black man’s barber should be his mother. In fact, a ninja-barber relationship is so important (and fragile) that I just STOPPED going to my barber years ago because I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I was gonna shave my own head from here on out. He might think I’m dead. Either way, every Black man needs a first-name-basis-knows-facts-about-my-family barber.
2) CREDIT CARD/ACTUAL CREDIT REPORT
While I appreciate the commercials for Eastern’s Motors in the DC Metro area for their use of B-list celebrities and their non-synced lip-synching, your job should NOT be your credit. You should have an actual credit score. And at least one credit card that doesn’t include the words RUSHCARD on it. While I’m not going to tel anybody what their credit score should be (Little Baby Jesus knows that all of us have our times of financial strife), you shouldn’t be getting denied service for a cell phone line. Women frown upon men who cannot own and operate cellphones. Trackphones and MetroPCS do not count.
Speaking of credit…
3) A JOB
Yes. You need a job mofo. There comes a point in life where you just can’t justify that hobby that takes up all your time with no real return on life. I’m looking at you Teeny. And your ilk. I have a lot of hobbies too. Some of them pay. What, you think Panama Muhf**kin’ writes for free? You need income. What is any woman worth her salt going to be doing dating a man without a job after she’s 22 years old. Women are going to college and graduating. Us? Kinda.
There’s a slight bit of leeway if you just so happened to lose your job in this recession. Blame Obama (it’s been a year now).
4) A DREAM/ASPIRATIONS
Marty Mart had a loft dream and got murked out in Memphis for it. So don’t dream so big. Besides, little kids of different colors been playing together since the 80s. Pick something else. But at least have the nerve to be somewhat ambitious. Women hate men without goals. Hell, I hate men without goals. Youstink. Get your sh*t together, soldier. At least dream of owning something. Even if that something is a box of new pencils.
5) AT LEAST ONE PAIR OF SUNGLASSES
Because you WILL see women who look fly and they will attempt to lock eyes with you as an opening to getting you in trouble. Plus, its easier to look at a** while you’re with your girl if you have on shades. Not that I’d know about that, but I do wear my sunglasses at night (no club) nowadays.
6) GOOD SHOES
A good woman will judge you based on your shoes. If you’re walking around in some Buster Browns that look more beat down than Rihanna in a Lambo, well gangsta, you really need to step your game up. Work harder and spend some money on some decent casual kicks. And no, Nike Boots do not count as quality shoes, you moron.
As was the case with the hard rock era, Hip Hop has been under the microscope for its ability to allow artists to freely express themselves. And at the end of the day, who really wants someone to have the freedom to say what they actually think and believe…this is America people! Why be creative when someone can always toe tap for good ole massa?
In expression, there happens to be a lot of kind words for some, but there are explicit words for others and a rapper finds a way to maintain that balance, although the mainstream perceives it as creating a negative mentality for the youth.
Participating in an event hosted by BMI during the Grammy Awards weekends, Common and Nas spoke on how emotions play out on wax.
“As human beings, we feel different things throughout the day, said Common. “Some days, and some moments of the day, you might feel like ‘Ah, it’s a beautiful sun out there’. Then you might get into an argument with your lady and start feeling pissed off…”
Living in a country where speech is meant to be supported, but is still monitored when an opinion is taken a little too far, America continues to be an area of contradiction and full of blame without providing an avenue for growth.
But what else is new right?
