Sizzla Kalonji continues to receive fallout from his anti-gay laced performance at Sting 2013. Organizers of the Melkweg festival in Amsterdam have removed the reggae/dancehall star from the lineup of this year’s show.
Sizzla was set to performed on the show on March 16 in Amsterdam. However, organizers pulled the plug on the reggae veteran citing video footage from a Jamaican concert where Sizzla performed anti-gay songs.
Promoters say they will be refunding patrons who already purchased tickets…
CNN reports::The “Gravity” star had a busy Thursday thanks to her Oscar nod, and by the time she took the stage at that night’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, she let an F-bomb slip during her acceptance speech for best actress in an action movie.

A former New York minister has pleaded guilty to raping two teenage girls, one of whom belonged to his congregation.
Prosecutors say the Reverend Michael Clare was convicted of rape on Wednesday. Under the terms of the plea deal, he will be sentenced to five years in prison and will register as a sex offender.
Clare is from Jamaica and faces deportation. He was the pastor of the Harvest Worship Centre International in the Bronx. He admitted performing the acts with a 13-year-old girl in 2007 at his home and with a 14-year-old girl later.
Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson says in a statement the victims’ wishes were considered for the plea deal.
It seems that telenovelas have made their way to Nickelodeon. Tyler Alvarez stars as Diego in Every Witch Way, a teenage telenovela focused on magic, friendship, and love. The show is based on the successful, award-winning Latin American version, Grachi.
Born in the Bronx and now living in Long Island, this Cuban and Puerto Rican star comes from a big family. With a father in the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and a mother working for a private hospital, we were curious as to how this teen got into acting! Tyler dishes about his first role (this is his TV debut!), his Latino culture, and the interesting choice of stars he’d like to work with. Read it all below!

The Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines” vs. Marvin Gaye “Got To Give It Up” ordeal has been come to an agreement this past week. The back and forth lawsuits, was based on the similarity of the songs, and Robin Thicke statements that the son was inspired by Marvin Gaye, which was produced by Pharell Williams.
Here’s the run down..
Robin Thicke releases monster song “Blurred Lines”. Said song has striking similiarties to Marvin Gaye’s classic “Got To Give It Up”. The Gaye estate sues Thicke. Thicke countersues the Gaye estate. Gaye estate then sues Sony/ATV publishing because the powerhouse song publisher actually represents both parties and the Gaye estate felt as though Sony/ATV were being far from impartial and siding with Thicke on the matter.
Terms of the settlement between the Gaye estate and Sony/ATV were not publicly released. However, the litigation between Robin Thicke and the Gaye estate is still ongoing.

It seems that Jay Z was not the only one on parent duty for Blu Ivy’s birthday, January 7. She spent time with her mother and father in Miami for the occasion. Now in newly released photos we see the toddler dolled up in a princess crown and face paint for her special day.
Guests at Blue Ivy’s party included Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Angie Beyince who also donned face paint fashioned into butterflies (above).Blue was treated to toys at her party that included a hot pink Minnie Mouse car and a card from her Timbaland’s daughter Reign.
How much money is Justin Bieber going to pay Lil Za to keep his mouth shut about the cocaine?….
Did his neighbor, who he through eggs at two days ago, call the police? ….. Last but not least,
Why is Lil Za living with Justin Bieber?? hmmm ..
Flash Back Scenario:
TMZ is Reporting : Justin Bieber’s BFF Lil Za has just been arrested for COCAINE POSSESSION at the singer’s home — during the early morning raid stemming from the Bieber egg attack on his neighbor.
A rep for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. confirmed the arrest for FELONY drug possession … and said the cocaine was “in plain view” during the raid. Officials say Bieber was “not connected” to the cocaine.
Za’s bail has been set $20,000. He is still in custody.
Lil Za is a rapper who once lived at Bieber’s Calabasas home … and he’s been tight with JB for years.
Eleven L.A. County Sheriff’s patrol cars descended on Bieber’s house this morning to execute a search warrant in connection with Bieber’s egg-throwing incident last week outside his neighbor’s home … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Sources tell us … deputies are looking for any evidence that links Bieber to the egg assault.
We’re told this is a FELONY search warrant — meaning Justin is under a microscope for a crime that could land him in prison.
UPDATE : LIL ZA GETS ARRESTED AGAIN WHILE BEING ARRETSED???? Source: TMZ
Caribbean-Briton director Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” was named best motion picture, drama at the 71st annual Golden Globes awards on Sunday night, beating out “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “Philomena” and “Rush.” It was the lone award for the film at the Golden Globes.
McQueen’s historical biopic of Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free man abducted and sold into slavery, “12 Years a Slave” was long considered a front-runner in the best picture Oscar race.
McQueen was born in West London to Grenadian and Trinidadian parents.
As he tells it: “My parents are from Grenada, my mother and father; you know, this is the place where Malcolm X’s mother was born. My mother was born in Trinidad; the phrase ‘Black Power’ was born in Trinidad. Harry Belafonte is from Jamaica. Marcus Garvey is from the West Indies. And there’s this huge majority of my family living in the United States, so it’s a little bit more complex than that. It’s not about me being a Brit; it’s about me being a part of that sort of diaspora.
It seems that several new details have emerged in the murder case of former Miss Venezuela, Monica Spear. According to Fox News Latino, five unidentified suspects have been arrested in regards to the brutal killing.
As reported on Tuesday, Monica Spear, 29, and her ex-husband, Thomas Henry Berry, 39, were spending New Year’s in the mountains of western Venezuela with their five-year-old daughter when they were killed in a carjacking attempt. The two were shot and killed in close range on an isolated stretch of highway just outside of Puerto Cabello. Their daughter, Maya, witnessed the murdered and is currently in stable condition after being treated for a leg wound.
Fox News Latino reports that the two were killed at about 10:30 on Monday after their four-door sedan hit “a sharp object that had been placed on the highway.” The object punctured at least two of its tires. They then became prey to roadside assailants, who fired at least six shots into their vehicle.
“They fired with viciousness,” said President Nicolas Maduro.
Whitney Houston mother, Cissy Houston found out that the couple had gotten married without consulting the family first, she was furious. But she realized that there was nothing that she could do about it.
According to TMZ.com, Houston family sources told the publication that neither Brown nor Gordon bothered to ask their grandmother for her approval.
Bobbi Kris claims that she and Gordon attended a Sweet 16 soiree before and that is where Cissy Houston allegedly gave her blessing — but not for marriage.
Bobbi Kristina Brown lied. When Whitney Houston’s only biological child said that her grandmother, Cissy Houston, supported her marriage to her adopted brother Nick Gordon, she was not being truthful.-Source Rollingout.com
It seems that the NJ bridge traffic mess, is just one other problem that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is facing this week. The New Jersey Governor is facing a federal investigation into whether the governor used Hurricane Sandy relief money to produce tourism ads starring himself and his family, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) told CNN Sunday. The New Jersey lawmaker said the inspector general for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development conducted a preliminary investigation, and concluded that a full investigation is warranted.
The Huffington post reports: This new investigation comes as the New Jersey governor is facing a separate federal probe into revelations that his top aides engineered the temporary shutdown of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge as political retribution.
Pallone wrote a letter to the inspector general of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in August, asking why a firm with a more expensive pitch won the project to make a New Jersey tourism campaign with Hurricane Sandy relief funds. The winning firm’s bid was $4.7 million, while a comparable firm cost $2.5 million. The more expensive idea included the Christies, while the cheaper pitch did not.
The ad came as Christie was running for reelection as a Republican in an overwhelmingly Democratic state. However, due to his personal popularity (thanks in no small part to his handling of the Sandy recovery), Christie trounced Democrat Barbara Buono and led in the polls throughout the campaign.
The 2014 Golden Globes was the highlight of the Sunday evening lineup on television. The annual awards featured nominations for Hollywood’s top actors and actresses. The show was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The jokes were plenty, and was not held back from the celebrity audience, who got their share of personal jokes.
This year,there seem to be a great liquor sponsors, because every one was DRUNK….No..tipsy. Especially Sean “Pdiddy Combs” who was in his true form, while presenting with Usher.
I am not sure that P Diddy was able to sober up, but he sure was having a great time , at the after party. There were very notable celebrities that were drunk throughout the night, Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck,and more.
The worst dress by far, for the night was Paula Patton……#nocomment
The best dress of the night , range from a mixture of designers and people, a notable mention was Lupita Nyongo, who stared as a supporting actress in the movie 12 Years a Slave. The overall night, was a spectacular and gets the awards season off to a great start.

Hudson accepted the favorite humanitarian award with her sister Julia for the foundation the pair started in the name of Julia’s son, Julian D. King, after his 2008 murder. The Hudson sisters’ mother and brother were also killed in the crime.
Jennifer Hudson said she was inspired by performers and educators she saw as a child. She wants to carry the message on to a new generation, she said, because that inspiration made a difference in her life.
“If they did it, then I can do it, too,” she said of the work.
