The first family pardoned a turkey yesterday and spent the evening volunteering at a food bank in DC.  See photos of the Obamas being fabulous inside…

The Obama family helped kick off the holiday season with the traditional "Presidential Pardon" of Popcorn the Turkey.  The President told the crowd that gathered at the White House yesterday:

"The office of the presidency — the most powerful position in the world — brings with it many awesome and solemn responsibilities…"This is not one of them."

The President joked that Popcorn was one of 80 birds that competed for the "Presidential Pardon", "It was, quite literally, the Hunger Games."  As Malia and Sasha looked on, he ended by saying "Popcorn, you have a full reprieve from cranberry sauce and stuffing. We wish you well."

During the ceremony, Sasha Obama caught the attention of fashionistas for her fun holiday look.

Sasha’s Panda-print sweater from Zara (which she paired with red jeans and Dr. Martens) will surely find its way to the top of many-a-parent’s shopping lists for their little girls.  How cute is she!

Later in the evening….

President Obama was joined by First Lady Michelle, Malia and Sasha, and his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson at the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), one of the largest of its kind.  The CAFB passed out nearly 40 millions meals last year.

It was the third year in a row that the Obamas gathered to distribute bundles of sweet potatoes, onions, carrots and apples to the community.  Loves it!


Watch President Obama at the food bank here:


In other good news….

With a break in her traumatic trial, Marissa Alexander will be home for the holidays now that she has been granted a pretrial release. You’ll recall that Marissa’s case gained national attention around the same time as the Trayvon Martin murder because Marissa has spent the last 2 years behind bars for simply firing a warning shot at her estranged husband, Rico Gray, Sr., during a domestic dispute.

Though Marissa will still face a new trial (which she finally received), we’re just happy that for the holidays, she’ll be "Standing Her Ground" at home with her family.

RUMOR CONTROL: Beyonce’s Rep DENIES Reports She Was BANNED From The Pyramids

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-11-2013

 photo beyonce1kkk.jpg

A rep for Beyonce is denying reports that she was kicked out of the pyramids a few years ago.  Read the rep’s statement about the "lies" inside….

In a statement released to E! News, Beyonce’s rep has denied unfounded reports published in The Independent that she was kicked out of the pyramids by Dr Hawass, Egypt’s former head of antiquities and gatekeeper of the Pyramids.

Here’s what the publication reported:

From the mouth of Dr Hawass, Beyonce is rude and stupid! He recalls her visit to Egypt this way:

"Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late’. But she didn’t open her mouth.

I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said ‘No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.’ I said ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite – out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.’ I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left."

That was allegedly his version of the event. Here’s what Bey’s rep said:

"This never happened. The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies."

E! News did go on to mention that during Bey’s 2009 trip to the pyramids, there were rumors that she and Hawass had an awkward encounter. Hmmm…….

We love the Beyhive…..but the whole "she came late" and "she didn’t open her mouth" comments wouldn’t be too surprising.

The smash single, which lives on Wilds’ debut New York: A Love Story, now calls on the “Area Codes” emcee Ludacris to lay down a few bars.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Amber Rose Disses Kim Kardashian Over Post-Baby Surgery

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-11-2013

Lazy day. Yes its Thanksgiving and yes I’m overeating. But, there are a couple of rumors going on. You may have seen that it has been rumored by myself and others that Kim Kardashian used surgical means to get her body back. Anyway, Amber Rose, Kanye West’s ex, seemingly hit Kimmie with some tough subliminal jabs in a recent post.

I think she’s dissing and at the same time showing that she’s still got it.


“They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!” -illseed.

Illseed, Out.

YG Tells Story Of His Failed Attempt At Running From The Police (VIDEO)

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-11-2013

(AllHipHop News) Last Friday (November 22nd) YG gave the audience at Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal a story to show why his debut album is called My Krazy Life. Speaking to the sold out crowd at UCB Theatre East, the Compton MC discusses what went wrong when he tried to run from the police.

According to YG, his mad dash from the police resulted from somewhat altruistic intentions as his friend called YG to help him pay his rent by a robbery. What ensued after involves a flat head screw driver, YG’s mother trying to keep her son out the streets through starvation and more.

The UCB Theatre improv actors turned that story into a hilarious satire of police racism and gave the first joke about George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin that is actually funny.

Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal is every Friday at 9PM at the UCB Theatre East on 153 E 3rd St. Tomorrow’s show (November 29th) will feature special guest Sheek Louch. Tickets are available here.

Check out YG’s hilarious story of running from the police and the improv actors’ interpretation:

Papoose Calls Trinidad James a “Jive As* Turkey” On New Diss Track

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-11-2013

“Don’t come back to New York, dawg/N*ggas looking for you like the PS4″

(AllHipHop News) HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Papoose seems to have assumed the unofficial position of New York defender from out-of-towners as he aims his new diss song, “Jive A*S Turkey” at Trinidad James for his “South Runs NY” comments.

In the song, Pap not only derides Trinidad but claimed responsibility for Big Sean’s low album sales and Kendrick Lamar’s low ticket sales and subsequent cancellation of tour. No word on if Papoose is referring to the Rock The Bells cancellation that TDE were scheduled to perform at or the postponement of the Yeezus tour earlier this month.

Check out Papoose’s diss song to Trinidad James, entitled “Jive A*s Turkey” below:
