First it was the corset lady in my previous post,and now its this chick thinking she is supposed to starve herself for God. You can just scroll to the video and see the dramatic change she makes and it is kinda frightening.
This corset training is heavy on Instagram. After this video look for thousands more to try it out.
MEET Kelly Lee Dekay, 27, who has corset-trained her waist down to a tiny 16 INCHES in a bid to look like her favourite comic book idols. Kelly became obsessed with tight-lace corseting and incredibly shrunk her natural 30 inch waist by 12 inches in just six months. Growing up the fetish model fell in love with the hourglass look reading comic books and watching Haute Couture corsets on fashion runways.

T-Pain has finally, once and for all ,proved that he is a true talent by singing some of his biggest hits without the use of autotune.
T-Pain’s fingerprints are all over pop and R&B and hip-hop. He wasn’t the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers “Deep” well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.
But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. “People felt like I was using it to sound good,” says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. “But I was just using it to sound different.”
He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits album next week. We asked him if he’d grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what’s really made his career: his voice, and those songs.–FRANNIE KELLEY

Vlad TV links with the Monsta to talk about his ongoing experience in Harvard.
Swizz Beatz opens up about his decision to take a break from music so he could go to Harvard University Business School. He explains that after having a hand in changing billion dollar companies, it was time to go to college and learn the real language of business.
He admits that his classmates didn’t recognize him as an artist until his wife, Alicia Keys, came in one day toward the end of class. Swizz adds that he was already cool with everyone in his class, so he wasn’t treated any differently.
Terrence Howard still has a perm in 2014? Based on this trailer I am giving this show a half a season at best. Lee Daniels has once again created some stereotypical coon shit that he masks as a movie. Taraji has got to stop accepting these kind of roles, she is way too talented to settle for this type of bullshit.
People seem to be really freaked out by this. But this breaks down to dollars and sense, because they are hard at work to bring the cost down of gas which they are burning through quicker than a lit match to a piece of paper.
First off, these are all high-concept ideas; no airline is about to phase out its expensive window-lined 757s anytime soon.
Hope you’re not too attached to looking out the windows when you fly—the designers of tomorrow’s airplanes seem intent on getting rid of them. A Paris design firm recently made waves when it released its concept for a sleek, solar paneled, windowless passenger jet. Before that, Airbus proposed eschewing windows and building its cabins out of transparent polymers. Now, the Center for Process Innovation has floated its own windowless plane concept, and it’s attracting plenty of attention, too.
So, because an arbitrary rule someone made up says three makes a trend, I guess we have to seriously consider the prospect that flying in the future won’t include plexiglass portals to the outside sky.
Celebrity Crime Files digs deep into the story of hugely successful life of now deceased Def Jam executive Shakir Stewart and the theory from his close family and friends that his was murdered and did not commit suicide. Strangely this is very similar to the case of Violator Management founder Chris Lighty whose family refutes he committed suicide as well.
Marvel finally pulls the trigger on the highly anticipated Black Panther movie, along with a slate of diverse movies according to USA Today:

This lady’s letter was very heartfelt and though she calls out Kanye for being MIA when it comes to the important issues going on in Ferguson and across the country, to which even our President has had to discuss on occasion, she did it with intelligence love and with no judgement. Sadly Ye’ seems to be more concerned with the worship of Kim K. and making sure she is viewed as a fashion icon, his own problems behind the scenes within the lily white fashion industry, and being viewed as a genius than the plight of the black community. Hopefully his silence is just temporary and he makes some strong statements in his new music releasing sometime soon.

You have spent much of your career defying naysayers and the standards people have set for you. You refused to be intimidated by guys on the South Side of Chicago for your creativity. You broke free of being only a producer when you proved Jay Z wrong and became one of the biggest names in rap music. When music executives tried to control the content of your music, you released the now-infamous “Jesus Walks.” When Nike would not give you creative control over Yeezys, you took a deal with Adidas instead.
You are, by definition, defiant. And I love that about you.
Here is an alternative method for dealing with the police instead of these Facebook rants and posts I have seen the last few months trying to convince the urban community to physically fight back against the police dept ,which ultimately will result in more black lives lost and at what reward? You have to outsmart your enemy and the police dept. is prepared and wants us to fight them physically in the street, which will just give them even more excuses to shed the blood of the people. Fight your enemy psychologically and not with emotions.

I have used this site literally 100’s of times and had no idea a brother created it. Hit the cut for a video on this brother and more info about his burgeoning tech portfolio of businesses he has founded. #BlacksinTech
Echeruo is a Tech entrepreneur and founder of HopStop.com which he reportedly sold to Apple in the “billion” dollar range. HopStop.com is a mobile and online application that provides mass transit directions door-to-door mass transit, taxi, walking, biking and hourly car rental directions in major metropolitan markets throughout the U.S., Canada, U.K, France, Australia, New Zealand and Russia.
In 2001, HopStop was named one of the 100 fastest growing companies in the US by Inc. magazine. Chinedu also founded Tripology.com, an interactive travel referral service focused on connecting travelers with travel specialists which was later acquired by USA Today Travel Media Group. Echeruo obtained an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.S from Syracuse University.
This is too dope.
As the debate rages on between meat eaters and the vegan community as to what diet is the most optimal for health, new information has been released about the how these diets affect sperm count. This study also examines the effect of coffee, alcohol, and vegetables on sperm production for those wanting to produce children. Read more below: via Daily Beast
The paper’s authors also believe that the soy-rich diet of non-meat eaters could be to blame due to its levels of phyto-estrogens, which have similar properties to estrogen itself (and could therefore be overpowering a man’s testosterone). “It’s hard to tell people not to be vegetarians if they are trying to conceive,” said Eliza Orzylowska, an obstetrician at Loma Linda University Medical Center. “But I would caution against using soy, at least for 74 days beforehand, which is the time it takes for sperm to be replaced.”
So you can randomly jump over the White House gate and not get shot and black kids across the country getting shot with their hands up, buying candy, and playing rap music.
According to reports, a man made it over the White House fence today before he was taken down by a U.S.S.S. dog. Although reports say the Secret Service responded quickly, video from the incident shows the man was not immediately surrounded.
The man managed to kick one dog and repeatedly punch and wrestle another dog before Secret Service agents ultimately subdued him.
it was only a matter of time until someone capitalized off of the hysteria, other than the US Govt. It’s still hard to imagine a fiend running up, saying “you got that Ebola?” I don’t recall there ever being packs of dope labeled “AIDS” when that was the national hysteria, but you know….I may be wrong.

So quick to inflict pain on the suspect this dumb cop kicks a fellow officer. As much the smartphone era has blunted normal human interaction without them we would never see this type of brutality that is perpetrated across the country by police officers who are finally getting exposed for centuries long abuse against black people and people of all colors and persuasions.
via Boxden, via Complex
Video footage obtained by DNAinfo shows an NYPD officer so eager to inflict pain that he kicked a fellow officer in the head after mistaking him for a suspect.
The video, shot in January, shows two officers tangled with a man who allegedly tried to avoid paying his fair at the Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue station in Brooklyn. That’s when the offending plainclothes officer appears and unknowingly kicks his companion, boot and head meeting with a resounding “thud”:
The plainclothes officer walked up to the scrum, paused and then reared back with one leg, letting his boot fly into the back of the head of a hat-wearing police officer wrestling with the suspect. The kick had enough force that the sound can be heard on the recording above the din.
A woman who witnessed the spectacle can be heard laughing while saying “He kicked a cop.” After realizing his mistake, the officer is seen attempting to comfort his fellow officer with a pat on the head. Unfortunately, the damage was done.
The unidentified officer was forced to turn in his gun and badge, and has become the subject of investigations by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office and the police department’s Internal Affairs unit.
While the world debates the threat of Ebola and speaks of closing its borders to the Mother continent, individual African countries continue to make strides and set the pace for an economic resurgence, in the face of this global scare tactic.

I actually thought I had seen it all in boxing but I was wrong.
Vido Loncar of Croatia and Algirdas Baniulis of Lithuania were in a match at the European Youth Boxing Championships in Zagreb, Croatia when the referee stopped the fight. After the match, Loncar attacked the referee viciously before the decision was announced.
Did Tyrese ever say it didn’t happen? I think Spanky got exactly what he wanted and that if Tyrese really wanted to hurt him he would of just ignored him and not even responded if the allegations are so ludicrous. Now people will see the response video and look up the original video that sparked this in the first place. Round to Spanky.

Racism in Brazil is a topic that receives a blind eye…it is sewed into the fabric of society and nobody seems to notice the stitching but after this reality show exploded on the scene the complexities of race & complexion are at the forefront of a national discussion gripping the nation. Below is a blog by some Brazilian feminist taking the producer/creator of this show to task and unmasking Brazil’s hidden prejudices.
Doggie Diamonds brings some clarity to the beef between Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea that was eventually squashed by T.I. I watched Snoop’s apology and it was a strong hint of sarcasm in it and it looked more about his relationship with T.I. and less about sincerely being sorry for the things he said about Iggy. Hit the cut to check out both videos..

Warning this is not for the squeamish or those passionate about dogs.
Southern China has always had a tradition of dining on dogs—people from other parts of the country even joke that Southerners will eat anything with legs but the dinner table. But despite becoming more prosperous in the 1990s, Yulin has maintained the unique tradition of holding a canine banquet every summer.
