Dwayne Johnson has claimed Idris Elba refused to say a line in 'Hobbs & Shaw' in which his character referred to himself as ''the black James Bond."


Elie Saab credits Halle Berry for the popularity of his eponymous line. The 55-year-old designer has praised the 52-year-old actress for helping his couture line take off after she stepped out in a custom floor-length red gown by the fashion guru at the Oscars. Afterward, his brand took off and was launched on an international stage.



Former NBA player Matt Barnes suggested the age challenge could super low-key be a way for the government to keep tabs on people.







Guess how much gay adult film stars make...remarkably little.


While some name brand stars can earn up to $5,000 a scene, the vast majority make about $500 to $1,000 per scene.


No matter how you do the math, $500-$1,000 doesn’t come to a whole lot of money. Let’s say you earn $500 a scene. If you’re lucky you’ll work 5 scenes a month. That’s $2,500 a month or $30,000 a year. Considering the median household income in the U.S. is $51,000, that means you’re making a little bit over half of desk-job Americans.


A few years ago, gay adult star Diesel Washington (above) announced that he was returning to escorting at age 47 so that he could buy and take care of a pet dog.


He later admitted that straight couples hire him for cuckold fantasies.


And it was widely speculated that one of his clients was a white actor known as (the gay Bill Cosby), allegedly he hired Washington for "race play."


Athletes and other celebrities were also clients as well as a white man affiliated with a Housewives reality franchise.


Several people say that some of Washington's tweets are harbored in self hatred.


Like a number of black gay/ thug porn stars, Washington has never been invited to appear in an porn star review which features name status stars doing a strip tease onstage and charging for lap dances offstage in VIP lounges.


They also get a percentage of the door yet these reviews appear to be segregated.


The majority of black male adult stars patronize the annual "Blatino Oasis," in Palm Springs.


Wealthy attendees are always pestering their favorite adult star for sex and they're willing to pay top dollar.


A lot of gay sugar daddies also attend this event.


And orgies are common.


Allegedly, a back alley unlicensed individual rented a house and made a fortune giving adult bottoms Brazilian butt shots.  They were lined up.


Downlow rappers send reps to approach male adult stars for secret encounters.








Sam Cooke told a few of his peers and associates, that if anything ever happened to him, he wanted to will his eyes to Ray Charles.


But after his death, either medicine wasn't advanced enough to do a eye transplant or his wish was never granted.


Ray Charles cited Nat King Cole as a primary influence, but his music was also influenced by Louis Jordan and Charles Brown.


Frank Sinatra called Ray Charles "the only true genius in show business," although Charles downplayed this notion.


In 2002, Rolling Stone ranked Charles number ten on its list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time," and number two on their November 2008 list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time." Billy Joel said, "This may sound like sacrilege, but I think Ray Charles was more important than Elvis Presley."


Ray Charles Robinson was the son of Bailey Robinson, a laborer, and Aretha (or Reatha) Williams. His mother was a teenage orphan making a living as a sharecropper.


They lived in Greenville, Florida with Robinson's father and his wife, Mary Jane Robinson. The Robinson family had informally adopted Aretha, and she took the surname Robinson. When she became pregnant by Bailey, incurring scandal, she left Greenville late in the summer of 1930 to be with family members in Albany, Georgia for the baby's birth, after which mother and child returned to Greenville. She and Mary Jane then shared in Ray's upbringing. He was deeply devoted to his mother and later recalled her perseverance, self-sufficiency, and pride as guiding lights in his life. His father abandoned the family, left Greenville, and married another woman elsewhere.


In his early years, Charles showed an interest in mechanical objects and would often watch his neighbors working on their cars and farm machinery. His musical curiosity was sparked at Wylie Pitman's Red Wing Cafe, at the age of three, when Pitman played boogie woogie on an old upright piano; Pitman subsequently taught Charles how to play the piano. Charles and his mother were always welcome at the Red Wing Cafe and even lived there when they were in financial distress. Pitman would also care for Ray's younger brother George, to take some of the burden off their mother. George drowned in his mother's laundry tub when he was four years old.


Destitute, uneducated, and mourning the loss of her younger son, Aretha (or Reatha) Robinson used her connections in the local community to find a school that would accept a blind African-American pupil. Despite his initial protest, Charles attended school at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine from 1937 to 1945.


Charles further developed his musical talent at school and was taught to play the classical piano music of J.S. Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. His teacher, Mrs. Lawrence, taught him how to use braille music, a difficult process that requires learning the left hand movements by reading braille with the right hand and learning the right hand movements by reading braille with the left hand, and then combining the two parts. While Charles was happy to play classical music, he was more interested in the jazz, blues, and country music he heard on the radio.


After leaving school, Charles moved to Jacksonville with Charles Wayne Powell a couple who had been friends with his late mother. He played the piano for bands at the Ritz Theatre in LaVilla for over a year, earning $4 a night-$51 in 2019 dollars.


He started to build a reputation as a talented musician in Jacksonville, but the jobs did not come fast enough for him to construct a strong identity. He decided to leave Jacksonville and move to a bigger city with more opportunities.


At age 16, Charles moved to Orlando, where he lived in borderline poverty and went without food for days. It was difficult for musicians to find work, as since World War II had ended there were no "G.I. Joes" left to entertain.


In 1947, Charles moved to Tampa, where he had two jobs: one as a pianist for Charles Brantley's Honeydippers.


In 1950, his performance in a Miami hotel impressed Henry Stone, who went on to record a Ray Charles Rockin' record (which never became particularly popular).


During his stay in Miami, Charles was required to stay in the segregated but thriving black community of Overtown. Stone later helped Jerry Wexler find Charles in St. Petersburg.


Charles reached the pinnacle of his success at Atlantic with the release of "What'd I Say", which combined gospel, jazz, blues and Latin music. Charles said he wrote it spontaneously while he was performing in clubs with his band. Despite some radio stations banning the song because of its sexually suggestive lyrics, the song became his first top ten pop record. A string of hits would follow along with 4 Grammys.


His contract with Atlantic contract expired in 1959, and several big labels offered him record deals; choosing not to renegotiate his contract with Atlantic, he signed with ABC-Paramount in November 1959. He obtained a more liberal contract than other artists had at the time, with ABC offering him a $50,000 ($429,737 in 2019 dollars), higher royalties than any other artist and eventual ownership of his master tapes—a very valuable and lucrative deal at the time.







1. Before the Panama Canal was constructed, a railway was built to link the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The chief inspiration for this project was the California Gold Rush of 1849 and the mad rush to stake a claim to fortune. Men came from across the globe to work on the railway, many without any identification or known next of kin. This feat of engineering would come at great cost to many—diseases like yellow fever, malaria, and cholera plagued the workers, and thousands died. A ban on opium caused many of the Chinese workers, who had become addicted to the drug in their homeland, to commit suicide.


No official records were kept, but the death toll could have easily exceeded 10,000. It might seem natural that the Panama Railroad Company would simply bury their dead and move on, but they had other plans.


Keeping their eye on the bottom line, they pickled many of the corpses and sold them off to medical schools for experimentation.


It was an interesting time in medicine—anesthesia had just been discovered, and surgeries, which had previously been hack jobs performed as swiftly as possible, became far more intricate.


Bodies were in high demand, and for over five years, the Panama Railroad Company was a leading supplier.


2. In 2008, three teens in Humble, Texas used a truly ghoulish method to get high. They dug up the grave of a child named Willie Simms who’d died in 1921, severed the corpse’s head, and used the skull as a bong.The teens may very well have gotten away with this gruesome crime if they hadn’t later been caught during a vehicle break-in investigation. One of them confessed to desecrating Simms’s corpse.


At first, the story seemed so bizarre that the police did not believe it, but a visit to the cemetery yielded a disturbed grave filled with rainwater, its headstone broken. All three were charged with abuse of a corpse, a misdemeanor, along with other crimes.


3.  Funerals can be extraordinarily expensive. According to the National Funeral Directors Association, a traditional funeral and burial can easily approach $10,000.


Even a comparatively cheap cremation exceeds $3,000. In 2009, when the economy was in dire straits, cities across America reported a vast increase in unclaimed bodies, an indicator that the financial outlook of the nation was indeed grim. Los Angeles experienced a 36 percent rise in unclaimed dead over the previous fiscal year. Even in the most dire financial circumstances, most deceased are claimed by their loved ones, but in certain circumstances, it can be seen how a body could go unclaimed. Faced with the choice, would an impoverished single mother take on the staggering debt of burying a great uncle she’d never met? One of the cities hardest hit by this phenomenon was Detroit, an area plagued by unemployment and poverty. Here, the state of Michigan pays for indigent burials, which cost $750 each. Unfortunately, these payments were rarely timely, as the state struggled through its own financial woes. Meanwhile, the unclaimed bodies piled up in refrigerated storage rooms. In October and November 2008, Michigan paid for 637 indigent burials. A year later, the economy tanked so badly that this number nearly doubled, swelling to 1,268 in the same time period.


4. The 1995 bombing of Oklahoma City’s Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was a devastating terrorist attack that killed at least 168 people. Among the dead was 21-year-old Lakesha Levy, a member of the Air Force who was at the building to pick up a Social Security card. After Levy’s body was buried, a severed leg was found in the rubble of the building. FBI tests found that the decomposed leg belonged to a black woman. A footprint determined that it belonged to Levy, even though she’d been buried with two legs. Her body was subsequently exhumed, but officials were unable to determine just where this mystery leg came from. The body’s DNA had been destroyed by the embalming process. According to Oklahoma medical examiner Fred Jordan, “We don’t have a body to match it to. It’s something we haven’t figured out yet.”







Young professionals, entrepreneur's, independent filmmakers and Silicon Valley start-ups have been using peer to peer financial services for years to fund their businesses and projects; and a large majority of these loans are for personal use as well.


These loans are UNSECURED (no collateral is required). 


And your credit doesn't have to be spotless or pristine to qualify for one of these loans; they have a high risk category.


This concept is largely unknown among African Americans and urban communities.  Instead, blacks are purposely geared towards high interest bank loans or payday loans-that have access to your bank account or payroll check for repayment.


Peer To Peer services have lower interest rates than banks and credit unions.


This service is also ideal for student loan debt, debt consolidation, home improvement, moving expenses, holiday and birthday purchases, big purchases, etc.


Loans range from $5,000-$100,000.


To find out more, click on the above image and if your loan is funded, you receive a $100 bonus (if your loan is fully funded) and in some instances loans are fully funded within hours and an segment of the loans are "fully" funded at 70%.
