     Little Richard Hints He’s No Longer Gay

At age 84, Little Richard is opening up about his love for God and how despite people being gay or bi-sexual, the Lord still loves them. In the past, the rock ‘n’ roll legend described himself as ‘gay’, but now says he’s dedicating his final years to living holy “like Jesus”.  He also insisted men should live as men, and women should live as women, the way God intended.

“Give everything you’ve got to Jesus and you’ll feel oh, so much better.”

He continues,

“You know it’s just like everybody is turning one way or the other. This man here, when I first came into show business, they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself. And anybody come in show business, they’re gonna say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re gonna say it. But the God, Jesus, made men, men, he made women, women, you know. And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live. “

Richard, who no longer wears wig and make-up, also said that he believes if a person’s sexual orientation wasn’t in line with God’s design, that God is able to fix it.

“Regardless of whatever you are He loves you. I don’t care what you are. He loves you and He can save you, and He will save you and He can help you. He will help you. All you’ve got to do is say, ‘Lord, take me as I am. I’m a sinner.’ But we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The only holy, righteous person is Jesus and He wants us to be just like Him because in order to go to Heaven, we’ve got to look like Him,” Richard said. “I don’t want to sing Rock and Roll no more. … I want to be holy like Jesus.”

T.I. Says Las Vegas Massacre Changes Nothing for Me, On Gun Control or Concerts

T.I. is standing his ground on gun laws, saying there’s still a NEED for Americans to own assault weapons. TMZ spoke to Tip  while he was leaving L.A. Wednesday night and asked him if the Las Vegas massacre makes him second guess security at his concerts, or his thoughts on gun control.

Although the massacre was not something that could have been predicted to happen. I truly believe that people need to protect themselves more especially at these massive events.

Tyrese Investigated by Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services Over Abuse Claims

Tyrese is under investigation by the Los Angeles County Dept. of Children and Family Services over his ex-wife’s claims that he spanked their 10-year-old daughter so hard she couldn’t sit down. Let me just add that honey I think half of black america may have experienced some of those spankings, and no it doesn’t make it right but to continue on.

via TMZ:

Tyrese and Norma Gibson are in a court battle … Norma’s trying to get a permanent restraining order prohibiting him from physically disciplining their kid. She also wants full physical and legal custody. She’s worried Tyrese will take their daughter to Dubai, where he has business ties, and not come back. She also wants Tyrese to take domestic violence courses.

She claims Tyrese “beat” the girl between 12 and 16 times. Tyrese says he only struck her once on her bottom. Tuesday in court, Norma’s attorney said DCFS is now investigating Tyrese.

It’s not uncommon for DCFS to launch an investigation as a precautionary measure.

For his part, Tyrese says Norma is bitter that he married someone else and is trumping up false allegations out of revenge.

Tyrese’s lawyer, Terry Levich Ross, tells TMZ bluntly, “She’s a lying piece of s***. Tyrese is devastated. He’s a good guy and I will prove that.”

Check out Tyrese recent post on Instagram about it all.

Jay-Z Opens Up His 40/40 Club for Puerto Rico Relief Efforts [Photo]

Jay-Z is donating use of his 40/40 Club and D’Usse cognac to help raise funds for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico.

via TMZ:

We’ve learned Jay’s lending out his 40/40 Club Manhattan location Wednesday for Disaster Relief For Puerto Rico, a fundraiser for Hurricane Maria victims. In addition to the free space, comped bottles of D’Usse for the first hour — Jay’s cognac — will be flowing for anyone who donates items or money to relief efforts. D’Usse is even throwing in free models to serve the stuff.

The invite for the 40/40 event, which is being organized by the Puerto Rican Family Institute and Big & Little Skills Academy, asks people to bring school supplies, flashlights, solar lamps and batteries. A plane will be sending the supplies from the event Thursday. In a separate effort TIDAL also is reportedly planning to fly 200,000 lbs. of supplies to the wrecked island on another plane. 

It’s always a plus to see those who are willing and able to step up and do their part to help others in need.

Barack and Michelle Obama celebrated their 25th anniversary on yesterday. Despite it being their special day, Michelle spent part of it having a talk with Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia.

That didn’t stop him!

Appearing on a big screen, Barack first apologized for “crashing” the conference before getting into a loving tribute that brought tears to his wife’s eyes.

“I had to crash this party because today we have been married for 25 years,” our President Obama said. “The idea that you would put up with me for a quarter of a century is a remarkable testament to what a saintly, wonderful, patient person you are.”

“It was a lot easier for me to do it,” he continued with a smile, “because the fact of the matter is that not only have you been an extraordinary partner, not only have you been a great friend, somebody who could always make me laugh, somebody who would always make sure that I was following what I thought was right, but you have also been an example to our daughters and to the entire country.”

As he got to the end of his message, Michelle was visibly moved.

Watch Barack’s touching video below.
