Halle Berry Accuses Gabriel of Trying to Hide Nahla’s Blackness


Halle Berry is accusing her ex Gabriel Aubry of trying to make their 6-year-old biracial DAUGHTER look more white than black.

The allegations came out this morning in FAMILY court, according to TMZ

Halle was furious Gabriel was straightening Nahla’s naturally-curly hair, lightening it with highlights, and she is convinced it’s because he does not want the girl to appear to be African AMERICAN.


Halle didn’t show in court Monday morning, but her lawyer Steve Kolodny did, along with Gabriel and after a lot of arguing the judge ruled NEITHER Halle nor Gabriel could CHANGE Nahla’s look from its natural state.

So the judge is ALLOWING Nahla’s hair to grow back naturally.

SCORE one for Berry.


TMZ Under Fire for Marion Barry ‘Crack Mayor’ Headline; Petition Started

change dot org marion barry

TMZ no doubt prides itself with pushing the pop CULTURE envelope to new boundaries daily . But with their headline on the recent death of former Washington, DC Mayor Marion Barry, they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

The tasteless, insensitive headline that’s got a lot of people upset is “Marion Barry Crack Mayor Dead at 78.”

Barry, like every human being that’s ever walked the earth wasn’t perfect. It was well known that at one time he had a SUBSTANCE ABUSE problem, but of course that’s just element of his legacy. He will also be remembered for his untiring work in the civil rights movement and his dedication to uplifting people from poverty.

The people who are pissed at TMZ have started a PETITION via urging the gossip oriented SITE to apologize and change the headline.

“We want his legacy to be honored the right way,” the PETITION reads. “Show respect to his family friends and supporters.”

The last time we looked, over 12,500 people had signed the petition since Sunday at 1:15pm Eastern.

Meanwhile, details of a public memorial service have yet to be released, but Barry’s body – according to Council Chair Phil Mendelson – will likely lie in state at the Wilson BUILDING, which houses the offices and chambers of the mayor and city council of the District of Columbia, .


Beyonce’s Self-Titled Album Finally on Spotify


After nearly a year, Beyonce’s self-titled ALBUM is FINALLY available on Spotify.

A platinum edition of “Beyonce” with a six new remixes and bonus tracks is now available on the music streaming service. Released as a surprise last December, the set was originally only available as an iTunes exclusive but was later released on CD as well. Spotify previously only had a couple of big SINGLES from the album available to stream.

Landing “Beyonce” could help Spotify improve its image after Taylor Swift removed her entire catalogue from the service while questioning whether its streaming model compensates artists appropriately for their work. Later, a Sony Music executive expressed doubts about Spotify’s ability to convert free users into paying customers, saying Swift’s exodus had sparked “a lot of conversation.” Spotify believes its free version is critical to eventually convincing users to purchase premium subscriptions and says its royalty payouts will CONTINUE to grow as it gains more customers.

For Beyonce, releasing her album on Spotify could help it land higher on the album charts. Billboard just announced that it will begin including songs played on music streaming services in its weekly album rankings. That could help Beyonce knock Swift’s “1989” from its three-week reign.
