Condoleezza Rice served as the 66th United States Secretary of State, and was the second person to hold that office in the administration of President George W. Bush. Rice was the first female African-American secretary of state, as well as the second African American (after Colin Powell), and the second woman (after Madeleine Albright). Rice was President Bush’s National Security Advisor during his first term, making her the first woman to serve in that position. She has done so much for both women and African Americans in politics, so today and everyday, we honor her contributions to society! Read more about her below!
A photograph of Steven Tyler in his Hawaiian home with his girlfriend was published with a story saying that they were getting married, that incident leaked a major secret that he had not shared with even some of his family members. This, and the fact that his kids dont want to want to go out with him in Hawaii because people constantly take photos of them, even while they enjoy the water paprazzi using boats to get closer to
caused Steven Tyler to take action. The Aerosmith lead man and former American Idol judge, got some quality co-signs by Brittney Spears, Avril Lavigne and Mitt Fleetwood, of Fleetwood Mac.

Former President George H.W. Bush’s emails got hacked yesterday, including confidential emails, phone numbers, photos and even the security code for George W.’s House (LOL he better watch out now!) Guccifer, a notorious hacker, also hacked photos sent to and from members of the Bush family, including some embarrassing nude self-portraits of George W. (why in the world would Dubya send nude pictures to his sister?) This would have been way more epic if W had been hacked while still President. Check out what was taken after the jump.
People make me sick. You as an individual have the right to bare arms & believe in what you want. It’s the actions, you again as the individual decide to take once those rights are given to you. In Arizona, Bob Thorpe and Republican state Rep. Steve Smith are trying to implement laws that requires a high school senior to swear in an oath to God in order to graduate. There are too many folks out here with different beliefs and religions in order for that to ride smoothly. The two lawmakers are saying that there are no Constitutional violations within’ the oath, so it’s all good. First the guns go, then your right to believe and answer to your own HIGHER POWER. These people are sick. Drop down bottom for the oath.
My mom always taught me to think before I spoke, that lesson inspired me to go one step further, I’ll do research on a topic before speak on a topic. Peter King (R-NY) an elected official must surely think before he speaks, but if you haven’t got a clue who Jay-Z by now Mr. King, how can you call yourself a real New Yorker. King was caught snapping a pic of Beyonce with hubby in tow, and while some headlines read “FIRST COUPLE! (Well almost)–Pols fawn over Beyonce, Jay-Z at inaugural.” Some people still don’t know who they are. Hit the jump for more.

Last night, Alicia performed at the Inauguration Ball in D.C., so of course Swizzy was right by her side. And this came with a major perk, as expected! Check out who he got to chat with in the gallery!
