After the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, one of the largest American flags damaged during the attacks continued to fly above the resulting wreckage during the clean-up efforts.
Seven years later, that flag, dubbed the National 9/11 Flag, was sewn back together by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, and has also been stitched by World War II veterans, survivors of the Ft. Hood, Texas rampage, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s family.
After rapper Soulja Boy uttered the lyric “f*** the troops” in his song, ‘Let’s Be Real,’ the outcry was so great that various Army personnel and veterans created a petition seeking to ban Soulja Boy’s music and memorabilia from Army and Air Force bases across the US.
Now, the 21-year-old star has issued a mea culpa to soldiers and their families via the website Global Grind.
Just last month, Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s collaboration, ‘Watch the Throne,’ set an iTunes record by selling 290,000 units in the first week after its release.
But since records are made to be broken, that’s exactly what Lil Wayne did. His ‘Tha Carter IV’ album was downloaded 300,000 times in just four days, setting an impressively high standard — especially since it was not sold exclusively through iTunes, like ‘Watch the Throne’ was.
The awesomely hilarious clip shows Beyonce‘s reveal of the pregnancy at the VMAs and envisions the impending birth in a manger, with gossip purveyor TMZ serving as one of the Three Wise Men and Kanye West declaring it “the best pregnancy of all time.”
The video for Lil Wayne‘s hit single, ‘How to Love,’ from his upcoming LP ‘Tha Carter IV,’ has dropped, and it’s a dramatic departure from the rapper’s past efforts.
In the clip for the acoustic-driven ballad, his usual gangsta talk and boastful rhymes are replaced with the touching story of a single mother whose messy childhood results in a life of prostitution and drug addiction — as well as an eventual infection with HIV.
If there were a list of commandments for politicians, we’re guessing “thou shalt not say things that sound racist when taken out of context” would be somewhere near the top.
But GOP presidential candidate and Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann apparently missed the memo, because after the group White People Funk Band — itself a regrettable name — played at one of her campaign rallies, she took the stage and asked the crowd, “Who likes White People?!”
In an adorable moment on Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, singer Beyonce showed off her brand new baby bump, revealing to the world for the first time that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child.
While the couple is clearly elated about it, the impending arrival does mean the pop diva will have to reschedule some prior career commitments.
