This has got to be the worst week for New Englad Patriot Aaron Hernadez. After being arrested for 1st Degree Murder, TMZ has unearthed this pics of him allegedly throwing up Blood gang signs. Things are not looking good so far for this guy in the least:
TMZ has obtained a photo of Aaron Hernandez throwing up gang signs often associated with the Bristol Bloods street gang in Connecticut … while dressed head-to-toe in red clothing.
The photo was taken approximately 6 years ago, when Aaron was 17-years-old … and a senior at Bristol Central High.
Aaron was long-rumored to be a member of the gang … and now, with this photo — combined with the “blood” tattoo spotted on his hand during his arraignment — the doubt has seemingly been erased.
23-year-old Hernandez has been charged with the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. He’s due back in court later today.

She is looking for some sympathy because her father blew his head off after the way because his precious slaves no longer were available to make them rich. Somebody get Oprah on the phone to see how she feels about all of this. Paula Deen needs to buried along with her pro-slavery philosophy.

On Friday afternoon, the Food Network announced that it was dropping Paula Deen from its network after 14 years on air, after the National Enquirer reported (and The Huffington Post confirmed) that the chef had aired a series of arguably racist comments while being deposed for a lawsuit. But the deposition wasn’t the first time that Paula Deen has voiced questionable views on race.
Bill Maher stupidly jumps up to defend Paula Deen for the outrage caused by her use of the n-word and racial jokes. I have also thrown in her apology as well for good measure.
Maher joins Dr. Boyce Watkins, who in an appearance on CNN’s AC360 argued that Deen’s age and environment should be taken into account when judging her; Maher also joins Roland Martin who argued that Black people should be just as upset when other Black people use the n-word as racist White people.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Deen was fired Friday afternoon by the Food Network. They released the following statement:
“Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.”
Deen was supposed to make an appearance on the ‘Today’ show Friday morning and have a no holds barred interview with Matt Lauer, but she cancelled at the last minute.

In this video Ray Kurzweil discusses his predictions about radical life extension, singularity, life expansion and the imminence of physical immortality. He invites participants to the second international Global Future 2045 congress (June 2013)http://www.GF2045.com.
“If we have radical life extension only, we would get profoundly bored, we’d have profound existential ennui, running out of things to do, and new ideas, but that’s not what’s going to happen. In addition to radical life extension, we’re going to have radical life expansion, we’re going to have millions of virtual environments to explore, we’re going to literally expand our brains.”
The craziest thing about this story is that guy who the permit to carry the gun still stood in line after killing the perpetrator. No sympathy for the victim he pretty much asked for it and got what he deserved.
Diddy aims to be bring music back to television with Revolt TV
The newly unveiled Time Warner partnership adds nearly 12 million current customers to Revolt’s potential viewership when the channel debuts later this year, with programs that Combs says will carry a certain “rawness” to them to complement the heavy emphasis on airing music videos.
“We will not be doing a bunch of reality shows,” says Combs, alluding to the current lack of music programming on MTV. “We’ll be doing music-driven shows that will be exposing you to the discovery and curation of new talent. We’ll also be doing in-depth interviews and shows that will go into social issues with different panels and debaters of the culture. We’ll be doing our version of a Barbara Walters/Oprah interview, but with someone from this generation, and of this generation. We’ll be going to where the pulse of music is happening, and we’ll be covering it in the way ESPN will cover a sports story, with that level of urgency and seriousness.”
