Talent Line-up Released for Lincoln Memorial Inauguration Event

I am so excited that I live in DC!  I will be at the Lincoln memorial front and center.  Oh my goodness, Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige, John Legend, Beyonce, Herbie Hancock, Usher, Will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, and good Lord…Denzel Washington.  I will be there.  If it was just Stevie Wonder, it would be a treat, but with the line up they have planned it’s going to be a Celebration.  Here are the details.

Be there Sunday, January 18th!  The event will be free and open to the public.

Usher: First he fires Mom, now Scientology?

Usher, Usher, Usher…say it ain’t so. I’m not going to say it’s true, but Star Magazine* is reporting the internet is buzzing with rumors that Usher is converting from Christianity to Scientology. Usher, who is expecting a boy with new wife Tameka (who supposedly a scientologist as well) any day now, co-chaired a $1,500-a-plate fund raiser for both his New Look Foundation and Scientology’s controversial New York City Rescue Workers Detoxification Project in Las Vegas on November 3. Tom Cruise is on the board of Usher’s New Look Foundation…could that be a factor as well? Oh Lord, say it ain’t so. First you fire your Momma…now this!!!! Well, if he’s already let them get the dirt on him and begin sucking out his funds for the church…that’s a shame. He could have just went online and learned about Scientology…Wikipedia is your friend Negro, Wikipedia is your friend!
