Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?

[Verse 1: John Legend]
We made a lot of magic
It’s the only way we know
Let’s keep the night fantastic
Light it up, tell me more, explore
We love, we love, we love the stars
We could fall so hard
The drinks, the minks, the jewels, the house, the cars
Why’d we ball so hard?
Yeah, I’m no afraid to fly
Here we are, in the air, barely breathing
And we’re not afraid to die

[Hook: John Legend]
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?
Who do we think we are?
Baby, tell me, who do we think we are?

The June 2013 issue of Essence magazine cover is graced by media mogul Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry.  Perry joined Winfrey’s network, OWN, to bring his TV shows over to the network and also will include new shows.

In the struggling phase of OWN, Winfrey recalls, “I was talking to [Tyler] one morning, feeling so overwhelmed I said, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do.’ He said, ‘Let me pray with you.’ He’s so good at praying that I call him Moses. He started praying and we continued having conversations, and he said, ‘I think I can help you.’ That’s when we started talking about working together. The truth is that he told me I didn’t have anything fun and sexy on my station. ‘Where are the sexy people? Where’s the fun?’ he said. ‘You’re so serious.’ That’s how all of this really started. I wanted to get my fun and sexy on.”

So Perry is going to bring sexy to OWN?  Oh okay. He kinda brought sexy to Alex Cross.  Okay maybe not.

Anyway, you can pick up your very own copy of the magazine which will be on stands May 10th.

Jason Collins becomes the first active major sports athlete to come out as gay.  Collins covers the Sports Illustrated May 6th issue released today.

“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation,” Collins writes.

“I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different,'” he wrote. “If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”

There were fireworks at night as part of the celebration.

Synopsis

Sparks fly when Wade Walker crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace’s hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he’s not about to let himself flounder. Instead, in a wild weekend of fun, dysfunction and hilarious surprises, Wade is about to discover there’s room for all kinds of Peeples in this family, no matter their differences.

Funny trailer.  Tyler Perry presents ‘Peeples’ and Madea is nowhere to be seen.  *fainting.

No seriously, it looks funny so I will go see it.  What do you think?

camanhunttruckThe two Los Angeles women injured in the hunt for Christopher Dorner receive $2.1M each in a settlement.

Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71 were both shot when police officers mistook their pickup truck for the vehicle that they thought Dorner was in.

The settlement was remarkably speedy compared with other LAPD civil lawsuits,  which have taken years to be resolved. City Atty. Carmen Trutanich was blunt  Tuesday in saying the city wanted to get the case, which has been a sore spot  for the Police Department, behind it as quickly as possible.  Source

Must be my lucky day.  I get a video ft. Maxwell too?  Oh yeah.

[Alicia:]
Hey baby how you doing tonight
I wanna let you know
I wanna tell you just how I feel
I wanna love you baby
And it’s going so right
I wanna burn a candle
Turn the darkness to the light

With the fire we make
It’s getting hotter and hotter
Like a moth to a flame
I can’t stay away
From the fire we make
It’s getting higher and higher
Like the night to the day
I can’t stay away
No no no… {yeah}… nooooooo
{Oh yeah}
No No… {yeah}… stay away

[Maxwell:]
Hi baby, won’t you tell me the truth
You wanna be the one
You can’t stay away
Oh, hey darling
Don’t you make no excuse
We can chase the sun
And burn the hole inside you …
