Kanye West Reveals That His Father Was A Paparazzi Photographer

Earlier this month we learned that Kanye West was deposed in the on-going civil lawsuit that was brought against him by a paparazzi photographer that alleges that West assaulted him at LAX Airport (you may recall that we saw photos last year that seem to confirm the photog’s allegation). In his depo, Kanye tried to liken the “struggle” that celebrities face with the actual struggle that people endured during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Ugh. Today we learn new information from West‘s deposition … we learn that Kanye actually has respect for some paparazzi photographers and we also learn that his father was a paparazzo himself. Waitaminute, say what?! More »

Watch: For Some Reason ESPN Reports On Michael Sam’s Locker Room Showering Habits

"Sam is respecting our space"

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, is currently hard at work training with his team the St. Louis Rams as they prepare for the forthcoming new football season and was the subject of a “news report” on ESPN‘s SportsCenter yesterday. For some reason, the folks at ESPN thought it would make a good “news report” to focus on Michael Sam‘s locker room showering habits. You see, as an openly gay man, it is important — ESPN believed — to let the world know if/how/when/etc. Michael Sam (a gay man) showers or doesn’t shower with his fellow teammates (presumably straight men). Click the embed above to watch the “news report” in full.

After the segment aired, ESPN was inundated with complaints over the “news report” to the point where ESPN decided to apologize today for airing the segment. You can read their apology below. More »

Mariah Carey & Dem Babies Aren’t Letting Divorce Rumors Keep Them From Living Life

It’s been about a week since we first learned officially that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have separated. And while imminent divorce rumors are running rampant, there has been no official confirmation that the couple’s marriage is completely dunzo just yet. No matter, Mimi is not letting any of the drama keep her down — not even when estranged husband Nick Cannon keeps talking mess about her even tho he is legally barred from opening his mouth about the couple’s marriage woes. Mariah took her twin children — Monroe and Moroccan Scott — out for a pizza lunch date in NYC this week lookin’ about as happy as can be. Later in the day, with Dem Babies put to bed, MC stepped out for a night on the town for some grown folk fun. Whether Mariah is doing all of this stuff in full sight of the public for show or not doesn’t really matter. She was fine before she met and married Nick Cannon and she will most definitely be completely fine should she choose to formally end her marriage to him. Mariah Carey is living life right now. Good for her.

Scarlett Johansson Teams Up With Planned Parenthood For A New Women’s Rights Campaign

One of my favorite moments from the Beyoncé show MTV Video Music Awards the other night, was the FEMINIST sign that flashed on stage behind her (which may or may not now be my Facebook cover photo). I am all about The Feminism, and I am all about celebrities who are not afraid to speak up and say Women Are Watching. I always knew I liked that Scarlett Johansson, and now that I’m hearing she’s teaming up with Planned Parenthood on some new T-shirt designs, I’m officially on Team ScarJo. The mom-to-be is not interested in a political climate that so strongly resembles the 1950s, for women. I’m with it. Click inside for more!
