Spike Lee is definitely not going to be attending any of these sure to be sold out shows. Quite a surprise, but I guess he is revisiting what made him a star in the first place.
ATLANTA (AP) – Movie producer and actor Tyler Perry says he is taking his sharp-tongued character “Madea” back on tour.
Perry posted a message on his Web site Saturday that said he had taken some time off in the past few months “so I could spend my mother’s final days at her side.” His mother, Willie Maxine Perry, died Dec. 8 at age 64.
Perry says he will begin touring with his new play, “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” the iron-willed Southern matriarch he portrays in a wig and padded suit. She is the central character of many of his films, including “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail.”
The actor says he is eager to have Madea on stage for the first time in five years. The first leg of the tour begins Jan. 4 in El Paso, Texas, then goes on to Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle and Portland, Ore.

As I person who flies frequently, I think we all should be glad that he did not get a chance to hurt anybody and pull this country back into a state of intense fear. I do not know his motivation for trying to commit this act but hurting innocent people traveling for the holiday seems to be cowardly at best. Read below:

ROMULUS, Mich. – A Nigerian man who said he was an agent for al-Qaida tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane Friday as it was preparing to land in Detroit, but travelers who smelled smoke and heard what sounded like firecrackers rushed to subdue him, the passengers and federal officials said.
Flight 253 with 278 passengers and 11 crew members aboard was about 20 minutes from the airport when passengers heard popping noises, witnesses said. At least one person climbed over others and jumped on the man. Shortly afterward, the suspect was taken to the front of the plane with his pants cut off and his legs burned, a passenger said.
One U.S. intelligence official said the explosive device was a mix of powder and liquid. It failed when the passenger tried to detonate it.
“It sounded like a firecracker in a pillowcase,” said Peter Smith, a traveler from the Netherlands. “First there was a pop, and then (there) was smoke.”

Jay Electronica – ‘Exhibit C’
I found out about the ‘One Big Happy Family’ reality show on TLC while watching another show called ‘BBQ Pitmasters’ where white people cook massive amounts of pork for hours and enter it into a tasting contest. The teaser for OBHF displays a fat, sloppy, bucket of fried chicken eating stereotypical Black family who are extremely over weight and trying to battle the bulge all the while showing how much they love each other. I have tried to to find the teaser online but to no avail I found none. That is very strange for a show debuting this week it would seem they would have some sort of promotion online.The TLC website has no trailers or teasers just a schedule of it debuting on Dec. 29th.
Well it is some dispute as to whether or not this is real. Regardless this is definitely not the way to steal a plasma television.
All I can say is wow! We truly lost a legend this year and will never see anyone of this magnitude again. RIP to the King of Pop!

MICHAEL JACKSON: The King of Pop reclaimed his crown after his death, towering over the year in music. The surreal saga began in March, when Jackson, mired in debt, accepted AEG Live’s proposal that he perform 50 shows at London’s O2 Arena, as handicappers placed odds on how many of the shows he’d actually do, or whether he’d show up at all.

SACRAMENTO, CA — The riot inside Arden Fair Mall caused quite a stir among those looking to purchase the new Nike Air Jordan’s.
Surveillance video from just after midnight Wednesday caught footage of the fight that broke out in the line of fans waiting for the new basketball shoes.
There were no arrests and the crowd eventually dispersed.
Many of those unable to purchase the shoes at Arden Fair regrouped outside the Westfield Downtown Plaza on K Street.
The new Air Jordan 11′s (XI) aren’t exactly new. They are a re-release of the shoes that were released a decade ago with a few small changes.
As I predicted below here is the actual video of the Pope getting pushed to the ground. This lady was really quick and could have probably done even more damage.

Here is another angle to the video that has been floating around for a few days of Kanye’s surprise performance at Kid Cudi’s recent show in LA. He spits some bars about his trials and tribulations since the Taylor Swift incident.
Her last statements are really very weird and prophetic. Wait till the end of the video to see what I am talking about. And what makes this story even more crazy is the fact that Perez Hilton predicted her death a few weeks earlier.
WTF. I just watched the ever so sweet Mary J. Blige on the view being the perfect guest and now this? What is even more sad and shocking is that Chris Brown is now officially the poster boy for domestic violence. Read below:

Mary J. Blige punched husband Kendu Isaacs in the face at her record release party at club M2 Tuesday night. The singer slugged Isaacs, drawing blood, after she thought he was flirting with a waitress. “She turned to him and was screaming, ‘You’re not going to ruin my night,’ ” our witness says. “They got up in each other’s faces before someone tried to separate them, at which point she shoved the guy aside, pulled back and popped [Isaacs] in the face.” The source said Blige, Isaacs and their entourage were whisked through a door to the attached club Pink, which was closed. Our witness relates, “She was yelling at him, ‘What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?’ Four of her bodyguards and two of the club’s kept them apart.” Isaacs was kicked out. Blige went to the bathroom to fix her hair and makeup, but soon fled, creating an uncomfortable scene for partygoers Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Busta Rhymes. Her rep said only, “People lie and don’t know what they’re talking about.”

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — “Balloon boy” dad Richard Heene was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail for his part in the October hoax that transfixed the nation. His wife received four years of probation.
Judge Stephen Schapanski placed him on four-years probation and postponed the sentence until Jan. 11. Thirty days will be served in the jail, and 60 days may be served at night, if he is working during the day.
He also received four years of probation and was ordered to pay as-yet unspecified restitution.
Heene choked back tears and apologized before the judge: “I do want to reiterate that I’m very, very sorry,” he said.

This beautiful young woman has got her first taste of racism, and hopefully she will be am example to the young people in China who will not carry around the the racist ideologies of their parents and grandparents.
Born and raised in Shanghai by her Chinese single mother, Lou Jing, a half African-American half Chinese aspiring singer, experienced very little discrimination during childhood. However after she appeared on the Chinese reality television show called “Let’s Go! Oriental Angels,” Lou Jing gained national fame and notoriety — largely for her skin color.

Kristy Lee Roshia, 35, was charged with threatening a family member of the president and assaulting a federal agent after her weekend arrest within two miles of the Kailua house where the Obamas plan to vacation this week.
Roshia called the Boston office of the Secret Service last month and vowed to kill the First Lady and Marines, AP reports. Roshia has a history of leaving rambling messages and sending letters and photos of herself to the Secret Service.

This will be a huge hit despite any bad reviews from the critics. Plus this kid Jaden has some serious acting chops and will be a bigger star than his Dad in my opinion.
The Karate Kid, directed by Harald Zwart (The Pink Panther 2), stars Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, and Taraji P. Henson. Smith plays Dre, a skateboarding video game buff who moves to China after his single mother is forced to go there for work. Unable to speak Chinese, Dre finds it hard to settle in, and gets beat up by the local bully. Chan plays Mr. Han, a maintenance man who spots his black-eye and offers to teach him both martial arts and Chinese, so he can defend against all the kung-fu students. Sony is bringing The Karate Kid to theaters starting on June 11th, 2010 this summer.

(Newser) – An apparently posed corpse of a shot Mexican drug lord surrounded by jewelry, blood-stained pesos and US bills has sparked complaints against security officials who critics say are adopting cartel scare tactics.The gory photograph of Arturo Beltran Leyva’s body guarded by Mexican marines in Morelos was widely published. Government officials have denied the scene was staged, but the drug lord’s pants are pulled down and different objects are seen with his body in different photos.
“The humiliated corpse, with its pants lowered, covered with bloody bills in one photo and religious objects in another, showed the typical modus operandi of narco-traffickers,” a security analyst wrote in El Mundo. “The only thing missing was a sign saying ‘so that you learn to respect’ to confirm the unmistakable stamp of an act of narco revenge. The problem is much deeper: It has to do with the absolute lack of democratic culture and respect for human rights in our country.”

The Michael Jackson gravy train continues (I have added a video from the movie called Michael Jackson “We Are Here To Change The World”).
LOS ANGELES (AP) – “Captain EO” is moonwalking back to Disneyland.
The theme park announced plans Friday to bring back the 3-D sci-fi film starring Michael Jackson next February, over 23 years after the attraction debuted in Anaheim, Calif. The 17-minute film starred the late King of Pop as a singing-and-dancing intergalactic commander. It was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and executive produced by George Lucas.
In the film, Jackson leads a goofy alien and robot crew as they battle a wicked queen played by Anjelica Huston. “Captain EO” originally opened in Disneyland’s Tommorrowland in 1986 and ran for more than a decade. Identical versions later opened at other Disney theme parks. They were all closed by 1998.

What’s next sterilization?

A top US commander is threatening soldiers who fall pregnant on active service with jail.
Under the new policy, troops expecting a baby face court martial and a possible prison term – and so do the men who made them pregnant.
And the rule applies to married couples at war together, who are expected to make sure their love lives do not interfere with duty.
Usual US Army policy is to send pregnant soldiers home from combat zones within 14 days.
But Major General Anthony Cucolo, who runs US operations in northern Iraq, issued the new orders because he said he was losing too many women with critical skills.
He needed the threat of court martial and jail time as an extra deterrent, he said.
All troops under his command are covered by the extension to the military’s legal code – the first time the US Army has made pregnancy a punishable offence.
