To all my single ladies, there is hope!

The “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin announced today that she is engaged and plans to marry to her long-time friend, and BlueTooth model, William Wilkerson this summer in Miami. The 69-year-old soul singer also made sure to mention that she is NOT pregnant. Gotta love senior citizens and their sense of humor!

Here they are looking like the 2012 Oprah and Stedman, probably seconds before PETA attacked:

Hey Mr. Wilkerson, you better R-E-S-P-E-C-T this one or its back to being the limo driver.



So tragedy actually didn’t strike twice today. In a recent statement released to address rumors that started making rounds this morning, Black America’s favorite (and only) married couple says they are NOT separating. After 13 years of marriage, Will and Jada are still going strong.

Did you hear that Black women? There’s still hope!

And just as tragic as the thought of Will and Jada splitting, Nickolas Ashford (of Ashford & Simpson) died today after a long battle with throat cancer. He was 70-years-old.

Ashford and his wife Valerie Simpson had successful careers with Motown and Warner Bros. In addition to their own hits, they wrote songs for legends like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and most recently, Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own.” Ashford leaves behind his wife, two daughters and plenty of old school hits.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sometimes love hurts…

On this special day I hope you all are spending time with someone you love, like, tolerate or at least don’t have to put your hands on… smooches!

Soulja Boy recently appeared on a radio show acting like he did a line of coke before the interview. And he must have been high because he claims to “love” Rat Stacks, calling her his “baby”… WTF?! Check it out for yourself:

This comes a few months after Stacks posted a video of herself in Soulja’s hotel room, calling him a coke head and exposing his cocaine. He retaliated on Twitter, calling her every nasty word imaginable and denying that he’s on drugs. As far as the cocaine in the video, he said Stacks set him up and it was baby powder.

My dumb-ass believed him until now… it’s time for an intervention!

It’s official, Shannon Brown from the Los Angeles Lakers liked it so much he put a ring on it! That’s right, he recently proposed to his girlfriend, R&B singer Monica, who snapped the below picture to show everyone her 10 carat engagement ring. (Awww, she looks so happy!)

Relationship rumors first started flying when Brown appeared in Monica’s “Love All Over Me” music video. Since then the couple has been spotted several places together and according to Monica, “We want the same things, a family and to settle down.” How sweet… just like her ring in a close-up shot:

No word yet on the wedding date or plans but as soon as I know, you’ll know.
