Controversy in America

America has taken a  poll and found that 53 percent of Americans believe same-sex marriage should be legal while only 39 percent think it should not be legal.Most Americans under age 45 believe same-sex marriage should be legal, including an overwhelming 73 percent of those under 30. Its safe to say that this is probably the most controversial issue America has been faced with along with abortion. Celebrities like Beyonce, JayZ and ASAP have started to speak on gay marriage supporting it. Where do you stand?

Beyonce stated:  “If you like it, you should be able to put a ring on it. #wewilluniteformarriageequality “

Jay Z takes a stand as well

I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.

So now that I’m here and I’ve got a microphone in my hand and about 6,000 people watching me, I need to tell them how I feel… For instance, one big issue in hip hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip hop is small-minded or stupid — and that’s not the case.

Over the last three years MTV has taken to the sunny streets of LA to shoot their annual VMA’S. This year however MTV is looking for a way to shake things up.

The MTV Awards will be hosted at the Barclay’s Center Sunday, August 30th.

“From hip-hop to hipsters, Jay-Z to MGMT, Brooklyn musicians have a long history of dominating the ‘spotlight’ on MTV. Brooklyn is a cultural Mecca — the hippest, coolest place for young people across the country, and has played a crucial role in the careers of some of 2013′s biggest bands, like Fun. and the Lumineers,” said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz in a statement.”

Keyshia Cole performs Trust and Believe

After all the twitter drama Keyshia Cole has been stirring up we almost forgot about her music. Keyshia performs her single Trust & Believe on Jimmy Kimmel and lets just say, it wasnt her best. She looked absolutely beautiful but Keyshia struggled with some of the notes and her ending left you a little confused. Being a musician myself it seemed as though Keyshia wasnt really confident in herself and this reflects in an artist performance a lot.  I think Keyshia is a strong talented songstress but I think it would be beneficial if she focuses more on herself as an artist versus what other artist are doing.

Updates on Lil Waynes condition

Last Wednesday, Lil Wayne allegedly overdosed on sizzurp causing him to be in a coma. This was big news in the hip hop community because many people thought it was just another fake rumor untill Lil Wayne responded from his verified twitter saying “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love”. Now speculators are saying that Lil Wayne didn’t actually tweet that and Lil Waynes camp is saying that entertainment sites are lying and it isn’t that serious. It seems like people are trying to cover up what is going on with Lil Wayne but they can’t seem to agree on the way they are going to go about covering his injury up.  I wont believe anything untill I hear it from Wayne himself but its clear that something has happened to this rapper and its something serious. The last visitor to see Weezy was Nicki Minaj who carried balloons to his room but as the left she seemed rather happy so we are hoping that he is doing well.

EYE CANDY: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE x MIRRORS

Just a month ago, Justin Timberlake released the audio for his latest single ‘Mirrors,’ now JT is back with a visual for the song! The song is a declaration for the love of his life and how she is the other half of him. Without her, he wouldn’t be who he is and losing her would be like losing a part of himself.

Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside me

The visual is a reflection of the love that a couple shared when they were younger and how they almost didn’t make it until he realized she was the person that completed him! The dancers and the mirrors and some dancing from Justin himself definitely completes the video.

**The red bottoms that he wore also were definitely delicious he crushed it for sure** Watch for the video below:
