There was "blood everywhere"
In the wake of the sad news we learned yesterday which suggests that Bobbi Kristina Brown may not recover from her drowning injuries, we learn today that her father Bobby Brown and some family members got into a bloody fight at his birthday dinner last night. Thankfully, this altercation seemingly has nothing to do with Bobbi Kristina but, nonetheless, the news is messy and ultimately very sad. At his birthday dinner last night, two of Bobbi‘s relatives got into a heated name-calling argument that resulted in “blood everywhere” and stitches for one of Bobby‘s cousins. Ugh. More »

Because of my very busy weekend, I will not be able to head down to Anaheim for Sunday Funday at Disneyland this weekend … but because today is my friend Andreas‘s birthday, I knew I had to get down to the park last night to help him celebrate his birthday weekend. I met up with Elena in Disneyland before Andreas arrived and then the 3 of us hung out for a bit and then toasted his birthday. It may have been an intimate celebration but it was really fun nonetheless. More »

Plus, today's her birthday!!!!
Guys. Today is Kerry Washington’s birthday, and I am using it as an excuse to watch Django Unchained all day. So, Happy Birthday to our Scandal queen! She delivered a fantastic performance on Thursday night’s winter premiere, and then gave an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live after. I rarely watch these interviews, but I loved this clip because she opened up briefly about a lot of things. She talks baby Isabelle, her experiences as only child, and what it was like having a mom hell-bent on buying her mostly brown and black dolls (I can relate). Click inside for more!

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit but, because it was my dad’s birthday, it was the whole reason I flew back to Michigan in the first place. Because my parent’s are getting more advanced in age, I am trying to be home for their birthdays … even tho my dad’s birthday is always in the dead of Michigan winter. They can’t really fly out to see me in sunny LA so I’m happy to make the trip back home. My best friends Sarah and Mark joined in the birthday dinner we had for my dad and a great time was had by all. I did get to spend a bit of time with my friends before I had to make my way back to the airport and back home to LA. More »

January 13, 1990
I know it’s not #ThrowbackThursday yet but I feel it is my duty to inform you that MC Hammer‘s biggest hit, U Can’t Touch This, is 25 years old. The song was released on January 13, 1990 and it immediately became a worldwide smash, catapulting MC Hammer into the stratosphere of fame and fortune. Unfortunately, due to a series of really bad decisions, MC Hammer lost both the fame and the fortune he amassed from his music career that started with the monster success of U Can’t Touch This but the song remains a smash. Click the embed above to watch the 25 year old music video for U Can’t Touch This and let’s celebrate a quarter century of Hammer Pants :)
Released January 12, 1999
16 years ago today, the world was blessed with the debut album …Baby One More Time by our dear Britney Spears and the pop music landscape was changed forever. Almost immediately, Britney stormed the charts and our hearts with an album that contained 5 hit singles that burned their way into our hearts and minds and firmly established herself as the new princess of pop. Since that fateful day, Britney has released follow-up albums that have enjoyed success on their own (her sophomore album Oops! I Did It Again still holds the record for the most albums sold in its first week of release by any female artist) but it all goes back 16 years ago to the release of Baby. Click below to join me in celebrating the sweet 16th birthday of Britney‘s debut album. More »

Yes, Blue Ivy is 3 years old!
Blue Ivy, the only begotten child of megastars Beyoncé and Jay Z, was born three years ago which means a celebration is in order. Beyoncé shared a photo on her official Instagram profile yesterday that reminded us of her little girl’s birthday and gave us a small look at the party she and hubby Jay Z threw for Miss Blue. As you can see below, Blue Ivy‘s birthday party appeared to have a Frozen theme based on the very Frozen-looking centerpiece featured in this photo. HMMM. I guess even the famous children of even more famous parents love Frozen just as much as every other child in the world seemingly does. More »
