G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra from Paramount Pictures took $15.5 million last Friday.  It already gathered a total of $26 million in two days and it is expected that the sales will reach $50 million in four days.  Maybe it’s because of the Easter holiday that the movie had already gathered a total of $63.4 million worldwide.  It is anticipated that G.I. Joe will earn $110 million or even more globally.

 temptation

Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor was released over the weekend.  Robbie Jones, one of the stars of the movie, was asked to compare this movie with Tyler Perry’s previous movies?  He said:

“It’s his most powerful movie to date, and judging from the peoples’ response at the premiere, it is going to be that. It’s just very distinct in the fact that it has a much younger cast than he’s ever had before and such a really strong message to young people throughout the film. Hopefully that will distinguish it from his other films.”

He was also asked about his thoughts on temptation in a relationship and he said:

“Lack communication is huge. When people aren’t talking and aren’t communicating their wants and desires to their partner, it just leaves a lot of room for bottled up feelings and emotions. They have ways of coming out in the most inopportune moments. People express their unhappiness and dissatisfaction in ways they might not have even known was possible. If I’m in a relationship, we’re not going to sleep upset at each other. I don’t need to be upset, and I don’t need you to be upset. We’re better than that. I like to communicate it and talk it out, whether it’s a 15-minute conversation or three-hour conversation. We might agree to disagree, but we’re going to communicate until we’re blue in the face.”

When it comes to the worst advice, he said:

“The worst advice someone ever gave me was to go get you a Bentley. Just because I can afford a Bentley doesn’t mean I want one. The thing about me is I’m very simple. I have my Prius, and it’s awesome.”

Katherine Santana, who had seen “Temptation” said:

“Omg just got done watching your movie and it was amazing!!! You sent out so many good messages!! Me and my boyfriend have a kid and we are very young and all your movies are ou counseling and just a good reminder to always be true to each other!!! You’re such an inspiration!! Cannot wait for your next movie!!”

Have you watched the movie?

Rick Ross is recently criticized for the lyrics of his new single, “U.O.E.N.O. (You Ain’T Even Know It)”.  He says:

“Put molly (slang for pure ecstasy) all in her champagne/ She ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it.”

These disrespectful lyrics have urged activists for women’s rights to create a petition on Change.org.  They want Ross to apologize to the millions of women who are offended by his song.  Last Thursday, the rapper expained that it was all “a misunderstanding” since he is not condoning rape.

But it seems that the rapper has no plans of apologizing.  That is why; the members of UltraViolet are encouraging the management of Reebok to drop Ross from their brand.

The co-founder of UltraViolet, Nita Chaudhary suggested “We are appalled that Reebok would pay a spokesperson who brags about enjoying drugging and raping a woman.  Reebok devotes a lot of time, energy and money to marketing to women – and now they are paying a man who is literally bragging about raping us while absurdly insisting it can’t possibly be rape if he doesn’t use the word ‘rape’.  Reebok is apparently OK promoting rape culture, but when one out of five women are the victim of an attempted or completed rape, that has consequences.”

So far, the campaign has already gathered 51,000 signatures and if Reebook will not respond then UltraViolet will make a protest at the headquarters of Reebok in Boston, Mass.

What do you think? Should Rick apologize?

MJ

Michael Jordan is not quiting but he is fighting back.  Recently, Pamela Smith accused Michael Jordan of being the father of her 16 year old son.  The judge ordered MJ to have a DNA test to support the paternity suit.  The NBA legend denied the allegation and Smith suddenly dropped the case without any explanation at all.  Now Michael Jodan is having his revenge by filing new legal documents.  He is filing counter claim charges against Pamela and he wants her to pay for the court costs and the sanctions that will be enforced by the judge.

Will Pamela pay?

 timbaland

Timbaland is lying to his insurance company when he filed a $1.8 million claim over a lost watch.  He claimed that his Jacob & Co. watch was lost by his 2 year old daughter.  The watch is very valuable since it is dazzling with 30 carats of diamonds.

But according to American Home Assurance Company, the insurance company, they won’t pay Timbaland any dime because he is lying, they said:

“ Timbaland bought the watch for $900,000 but insured it for TWICE the purchase price.  Timbaland reported the watch stolen … but 4 months later claimed his daughter misplaced it.  Everyone involved told a different story … the wife implicated another female, the assistant implicated the maid, the maid only copped to sleeping with Timbaland’s brother-in-law and the brother-in-law refused to cooperate.  No one ever mentioned the daughter losing the watch, like Timbaland belatedly claimed.”

Should the insurance company pay Timbaland?

So far, there is still no comment from Barbara’s people.

Is it really final that she will retire in 2014?
