It’s Official; Robin and Paula are Seperated

Rumors have been bubbling for months now and finally, after 20 years of friendship and nine years of marriage, Robin Thicke and Paula
Patton are indeed seperating.

The couple released a statement, saying,

“We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time.”

Details of Robin’s cheating most likely have drawn the couple apart. It all started with his MTv VMA performance with a twerking Miley Cyrus all up against his goods and later that night he grabbed a female fan’s butt. Weeks later, he was spotted overseas with a big haired beauty dancing and even kissing! But these are only three of the incidents! There’s a slew of photos across the web of Robin posing quite intimately with women. 

The high school sweethearts married in 2005 and just had their son Julian in 2010.

UPDATE: Fans soon started to gather at the crash site last night, leaving flowers and candles for the deceased. The vigil was held very shortly after law enforcement cleared the scene — removing the bodies of Paul and the driver Roger Rodas … as well as the charred wreckage.

Beloved actor Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, was with her father at his charity event, right before he died on Saturday, Nov. 30. The Fast & Furious star was 40, when the sports car he was riding in burst into flames.

Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a racing team partner, friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas, that slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

Cops say speed clearly played a major factor in the accident, but an exact cause has not been determined yet. Figure 8 patterns were also spotted close to the wreckage.

The crash occurred on Hercules Street in the Rye Canyon Industrial Park.

Several of Paul’s friends were attending the event … which was very near to where the deadly accident happened.

“We were collecting toys for the Indiana tornado victims and the Philippine [typhoon] victims,” says Jim Torp, who attended the event held by Always Evolving, a Valencia, Calif.-based automotive company. “There were dozens of high-end race cars and custom-built cars on display.”

Universal Studios soon issued a statement after the incident saying,

“All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the FAST AND FURIOUS films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”

A witness to the crash said the car was in half, but initially, they couldn’t tell if anyone was in the vehicle. Soon after, however, they could tell that the passengers were still inside.

Erykah Badu Releases Emotional Statement About Flaming Lips Video That she did not Approve

Once the Flaming Lips music video for their re-make of Roberta Flack’s The First Time Ever I saw Your Face, hit the web, it took ablaze; therefore stirring up and possibly even pestering the minds of millions of Erykah Badu fans. Yes, the Flaming Lips are known for their shock music and Badu is known for her free spirit and artistic expression, yet the explicit  and mildly disturbing video seemed to be a bit much, even for the Queen of Neo-Soul. 

On June 6, the Flaming Lips published this statement about the music video which also features nude scenes of Erykah’s sister Nayrok, who is also an artist.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM – WAYNE COYNE / FLAMING LIPS
“The video link that was erroneously posted on Pitchfork by the Flaming Lips of the Music Video ‘The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face’, which features Erykah Badu, is unedited and unapproved.. Sorry!! We, the Flaming Lips, accept full responsibility for prematurely having Pitchfork post it. It has outraged and upset a segment of fans and we apologize if we offended any viewers!!! This is a Flaming Lips video which features Erykah Badu and her sister Nayrok and is not meant to be considered an Erykah Badu or Nayrok statement, creation, or approved version.”

The same day, Erykah personally replied to the band and it’s frontman Wayne Coyne. In the  statement, she expresses her disgust with the unapproved edit of the video, as well as some red flags that she wish would have acknowledged not only during the filming of the video, but during the recording of the song as well. Check it…

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM ERYKAH BADU
@waynecoyne then… perhaps, next time u get an occasion to work with an artist who respects your mind/art, you should send at least a ROUGh version of the video u PLAN to release b4 u manipulate or compromise the artist’s brand by desperately releasing a poor excuse for shock and nudity that sends a convoluted message that passes as art( to some).
Even with Window Seat there was a method and thought process involved. I have not one need for publicity . I just love artistic dialogue . And just because an image is shocking does not make it art.
You obviously have a misconception of who I am artistically. I don’t mind that but…
By the way you are an ass.
Yu did everything wrong from the on set .
First:
You showed me a concept of beautiful tasteful imagery( by way of vid text messages) .
I trusted that. I was mistaken.
Then u release an unedited, unapproved version within the next few days.
That all spells 1 thing ,
Self Serving .
When asked what the concept
meant after u explained it , u replied ,”it doesn’t mean anything , I just want to make a great video that everyone is going to watch. ”
I understood , because as an artist we all desire that. But we don’t all do it at another artist’s expense .
I attempted to resolve this respectfully by having conversations with u after the release but that too proved to be a poor excuse for art.
From jump,
You begged me to sit in a tub of that other shit and I said naw. I refused to sit in any liquid that was not water. But Out of RESPECT for you and the artist you ‘appear’ to be, I Didn’t wanna kill your concept , wanted u to at least get it out of your head . After all, u spent your dough on studio , trip to Dallas etc.. Sooo, I invited Nayrok , my lil sis and artist, who is much more liberal ,to be subject of those other disturbing (to me ) scenes . I told u from jump that I believed your concept to be disturbing. But would give your edit a chance.
You then said u would take my shots ( in clear water/ fully covered parts -seemed harmless enough) and Nayrok’s part ( which I was not present for but saw the photos and a sample scene of cornstarch dripping ) and edit them together along with cosmic, green screen images ( which no one saw) then would show me the edit. .
Instead, U disrespected me by releasing pics and rough vid on the internet without my approval. (Contract breech )
That is equivalent to putting out a security camera’s images of me changing in the fitting room.
I never would have approved that tasteless, meaningless, shock motivated video .
Our art is a reflection of who we are . I have no connection to those images shot in their raw version. I was interested in seeing an amazing edit that would perhaps change or alter my thoughts . Never happened .
You also did the same thing with the song itself which displays crappy “rough “vocals by me . I let it go , perhaps iiiii was missing something, I thought.
I Should have followed my first mind back in studio when recording the vocals “your way”.
( Red flag.) It was uncomfortable.
For that I am at fault .
Consequently, brother, As a human I am disgusted with your what appears to be desperation and poor execution. And disregard for others . As a director I am unimpressed . As a sociologist I understand your type. As your fellow artist I am uninspired. As a woman I feel violated and underestimated.
Hope it works out for ya ,Wayne.
Really i could give a shit less.
Still love your live show tho.
And , you’re welcomed.
Lesson learned .
By the way I have guested in very few videos. But I have always been given the opportunity to see the edit and contribute to it when my roll is substantial. Not this time .
I guess u feel it better to apologize than ask for permission and be refused . Hey, Love u man, but your ways are not very nice .
O, And on behalf of all the artists u have manipulated or plan to manipulate, find another way .
These things have been said out of necessity.
And if you don’t like it
you can KiSS MY Glittery ASS .
O and Nayrok told me to tell u to kiss her ass too .
Almost forgot.
Peace

Ms. Badu

On June 3, Erykah Badu opened up for the Flaming Lips at the Free Press Summer Fest music festival in Houston. However, she did not perform with the group.

the comment indian-giver

Terrance Howard recently commented on the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation saying,

“It’s just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He’ll be all right. And Rihanna knows he loves her. She’ll be all right. Just everybody’s got to get out of their way.”

However, Howard has now retracted his statement insisting,

“When they asked me about Chris Brown the other day, I was in no way aware of what he had been accused of. Had I known, I would have never had said something so insensitive.”

Where was he? Under a rock.

I DON’T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE FIRST COMMENT HOWARD MADE. HE’S DEFINITELY RIGHT. HE SHOULD’VE STUCK BY HIS FIRST COMMENT, EVEN THOUGH HE’S BEEN KNOWN TO POP  A COUPLE LADIES IN HIS DAY.

chris brown exposes rihanna

 

chris-brown-and-rihanna-picture

Chris Brown has started to post comments on his official Facebook page about his relationship with pop diva Rihanna.

A post on his page reads:

“You’ll begin to see her true colors. Believe it!”

He has also changed his relationship status to “single.”

Brown leads to the notion that Rihanna is partly responsible for the attack.

There is also a pic of Brown and another woman on his profile page, which has led to many opinions leaked by MediaTakeOut.

Neither Brown or Rihanna have made a public statement, however Rihanna’s grandmother had stated:

“I don’t want people to worry. Rihanna is fine and she is doing well.”

She has also denied that Rihanna has a broken nose.
