Chris Brown cancels shows.

As we know, Chris Brown is currently on his “Between The Sheets” tour, after a bit of drama.

Well, looks like the problems aren’t quite over yet:

But…

Feb. 24 – Montreal, QC – Bell Centre
Feb. 25 – Toronto, ON – Air Canada Centre

These concerts are TONIGHT and TOMORROW.

Are you kidding me? Who in the world is managing Chris Brown? And why wasn’t this taken care of already? So these people had tickets, then the dates got postponed, then they got these tickets, and now they are finding out that he isn’t going to be there THE. DAY. OF???

SMH

Good luck to those of you with tickets to the rest of the shows.

Rumor: Incriminating video of Dez Bryant to be released?

First of all, let me say that this is from a sports GOSSIP blog.

I have no idea if it is true or not, but here we go:

The incriminating video of Dallas Cowboys superstar receiver Dez Bryant doing something supposedly Ray Rice worthy is being released today or tomorrow. According to our source, the Cowboys haven’t done a huge deal with Dez because of concern over the video. Unfortunately Bryant’s team won’t be able to stop the tape from getting out to the public. Of course Cowboys COO Stephen Jones  denies knowledge of such a video. This is going to be a game changer for the Cowboys future.-TO

From what I can tell, this site isn’t satire, and it reports legitimate sports news.

Looks like Dez got a whiff of what’s going on…

I guess we’ll all have to wait and see, huh?

I sure do hope it’s all just a rumor though. Sheesh.

UPDATED: February 24, 2015, 12:35pm

I just saw this (same source):

We’re being told the Cowboys have warned Dez the tape is going to be released, and from someone who has seen it, that it’s five times worse than the Ray Rice Video. His football career is in jeopardy according to our source. Also a Dez insider tells us he is being brainwashed by Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports.-TO

Again, I’m hoping this is all just dramatics…but if it’s true then it looks like it’s not a good look. Like, at all.

UPDATE: February 25, 2015, 3:35pm

So. I’ve refrained from writing more about this because I figure that if someone has something, then they’d just release it, right? All of this drama wouldn’t be happening, right? Well. That’s until I saw this.

Whew.

Sooooo I’m pretty confident in saying that there is, indeed, a video.

More:

Like we reported yesterday, there is a rumor of a video out there of Dez Bryant, and it was supposed to be released today. Now we’re learning there’s a deadline set for TMZ to buy the footage according to this tweeter below. I think at this point we’re all very anxious to see the footage. Check them out below. Update:- We’re now learning the Dez Bryant Video took place in a Walmart, and allegedly there’s surveillance footage of him clocking a woman. Update: ESPN’s inside man Adam Schefter appeared on the Carmen and Jurko show on ESPN 1000 in Chicago this week and reported the rumored Dez Bryant video does exist.-TO

Man…

(OH SHAT)

(SINCE. SEPTEMBER.)

That is a tweet Dez tweeted earlier today…and has since been deleted (it’s real, I saw it with my own eyes).

I suggest he lays low…surrounded by his legal team. Cause if it’s as bad as they say it is…WHEW.

“I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or maybe weed.” – Giuliana Rancic on Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks

Giuliana Rancic tried it.  And I mean she TRIED IT.

While “critiquing” Zendaya’s look at the Oscars, this happened:

 

#FashionPolice makes fun of #Zendaya …

A video posted by Spilling The CelebriTea (@thacelebritea) on

 

“I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or maybe weed.”

This went down on E!s recap of the Oscars on “Fashion Police.”

Really? I mean, REALLY?

Buuuut when this one did it…

However, as awful as this is, it provided Zendaya with the perfect opportunity for an eloquent read.

 

zandaya comments

Yes ma’am, Zendaya. Beautifully said!

Giuliana has responded…

Apology NOT accepted.

Because I’m sick of it. I’m sick of these people coming out here with their racist remarks and bullshyt, only to say, “Oh I’m sorry I had NOOOOOOO idea that would be offensive!” NOPE.

It’s exhausting. And again, I’m sick of it.

Of course I have to give you all some reactions…

^^DEAD. DEAD. DEAD. DEAD.

^^^HELLO!

Yeah. So.

Apology not accepted.

An on-air apology..

THIS is an apology.

Malcolm X offered to send help to Martin Luther King, Jr. after hearing about Ku Klux Klan attacks

I thought this was fascinating, and speaks very well to who Malcolm X was. A man who believed in the defense of his people, BY his people.

Check it out:

Just say the word, we’ll be there IMMEDIATELY.

I also saw this, which is a telegram from MLK to Malcolm X’s widow after he was assassinated:

By the way, I am assuming it is real. The Twitter account I saw it on usually doesn’t post fake stuff, especially when it comes to things like this.  However, if I find out anything different I’ll definitely update.

But for now..

WORD.

Blacks are talking about boycotting SheaMoisture.

I hopped onto Twitter to discover talk of boycotting SheaMoisture and wondered what in the world was going on.

Well…

Here it is…

This would be an advertisement SheaMoisture put up on social media today:

And oh boy.

^^Yup. Looks like the jig is up!

First of all, I’d like to say that EYE am not boycotting SheaMoisture. I JUST bought some bottles of my favorite products from them and yeah. That’s that.

HOWEVER, I can understand how this is a slap in the face for black women.  Like one person above said, it seemed as if this was a line made by the hands of blacks, specifically for blacks (it is a black owned company).

Buuuuut like another pointed out, there IS a line for skincare and baby.

I get the initial reaction. I really do. When I saw it I was like,”Oh wow.” Buuuut that’s about it. It’s not…”offensive.”

In case you aren’t aware of the story behind SheaMoisture, here it is (I’ll add more info about their mission, etc at the end of the post):

SheaMoisture was grown from the ground up on the legacy of our Grandmother, Sofi Tucker. The daughter of healers in Sierra Leone and a widowed mother at 19, Grandma Sofi made handmade shea butter, African black soap, and other natural remedies, selling them in local villages to support her family. Her salves and soaps were soon sought after across the countryside – and four generations later, in the hands of her grandson Richelieu Dennis, her recipes and wisdom form the heart of SheaMoisture. Today, every one of our formulas harness the healing power of Shea Butter and the best of Mother Nature to nourish every member of your family, body and soul.

SheaMoisture’s inspiring story and amazing products continue to flourish – natural is the new norm, and we’re proud to be eco-friendly and organic since 1912. The media has noticed, too: We’ve won accolades and awards from Allure, Natural Health, Prevention, Parents, Esquire, Life & Style, Essence, All You, Ebony, Healing Lifestyles & Spas, RealBeauty.com and Shecky’s.

Now. I just saw this…

Hm.

To be honest, I’m seeing less of this..

And more of this..

It looks like black women are shocked, but not really willing to give up on SheaMoisture.

What do you think? Will you be boycotting?

SheaMoisture has responded to the harsh criticism:

The entire statement reads:

“We came across an image of a little girl with a puzzled expression that we imagine our #SheaFamily has when they run out of product, so we shared it with you. No ad. No agenda. As a certified minority-owned business, we are so proud of our heritage, our community and how far we’ve come — from a village market in Sierra Leone, to the streets of Harlem, to retailers throughout the U.S. With your support, we’ve been able to bring change, diversity and variety to retail.

Looks like they deleted the original tweet as well.
