LCT PICS GIF 1

Blue Ivy’s Hair Sparks Ridiculous Change.Org Petition: Stop Bullying Blue Ivy!

“A new photo of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter was released this weekend prompting many, including myself, to swoon over the two-year-old’s high level of cuteness. However, there were others — largely from the black community — who cringed at Blue’s natural tresses.

One of those critics is Jasmine Toliver, who created the Change.org petition entitled “Comb Her Hair.” The petition reads:

As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter a.k.a Jay Z and Beyoncé have failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy’s hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.

“Matted dreads and lint balls” — really? You see all of that in the photo? My eyes see a little girl who just woke up from a nap on her private plane, was just living it up in The Hamptons, and whose hair is free and fabulous.

At this point Toliver has only garnered 15 supporters for her misguided cause and hopefully it stops there. Blue Ivy and her parents shouldn’t have to answer to any of these naysayers. As The Root’s Yesha Callahan so frankly put it, “maybe it’s not Blue Ivy’s hair that’s the issue but something internal that a lot of black people have.” ”

Note from us,

This is just sad!!!!

What are these petty people implying, that black children should hate their natural hair, or hate other black children natural hair and grow into their adulthood doing the same thing (Hating)? This is partly why so many black women have very low self – esteem about themselves, because of petty people like this.

Stop Bullying Blue Ivy! Stop making black children hate themselves for how they look!

‘SNL’ season finale: Solange and Jay Z skit brings big laughs!

“Depending upon who you ask, “Beygency” is the funniest thing to happen to “Saturday Night Live” this season.
That is until the comedy sketch show this weekend brilliantly parodied Solange’s now infamous elevator assault against her brother-in-law Jay Z.

The cold open — which featured Jay Pharoah as the rapper, Sasheer Zamata as Solange, Kenan Thompson as a skittish bodyguard and a hilarious cameo from former “SNL” star Maya Rudolph as Beyonce — was full of unforgettable punch lines and ribbing. This includes the “lost” audio from the elevator that explained that Solange wasn’t attacking her sister’s husband. No, she was simply knocking off a spider on his shoulder over and over again.”

Note from us,

Yeah, because assaulting people is sooooooo funny *sarcasm* whoot whoot mainstream!

Beyonce Pulled Off Stage By Fan During Brazil Concert

“An aggressive fan attending Beyonce’s concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Sunday put rational thought to the left as he grabbed onto the 32-year-old singer and pulled her off stage during a performance of “Irreplaceable.”

After being helped back up by security personnel, Beyonce finished the song. Ever the queen, Beyonce then went over to the man who yanked her down and shook his hand. “Nice to meet you. Thank you, I love you, too,” Beyonce can be heard saying in the clip of the incident, which was posted on YouTube.”

LOL! That sounds a bit scary though.

Beyonce was booed at V Festival? LOL!

“Pop superstar Beyonce was booed at Britain’s V Festival on Saturday (17Aug13) after she left thousands of fans waiting in the pouring rain. The singer headlined the opening night of the event in Chelmsford, England but she got off to a bad start by taking to the stage 20 minutes late, leaving the crowd standing in the wet and windy conditions. A chorus of boos and jeers rang out through the site before Beyonce finally started her set with her track Run the World (Girls). She later thanked fans for waiting in the wet conditions, telling the crowd, “Thank you all so much for waiting in the rain… Now let’s have some fun in the rain. It feels good doesn’t it.” Beyonce headlines the second night of the festival at its sister site in Stafford, England on Sunday night (18Aug13).”

LOL!!! They were “waiting in the pouring rain” just to see a “superstar”, tisk tisk the crazy things some people do.
