Letting it Burn: Usher Faces Second STD Lawsuit

Instagram: @Usher

After the entire world found out R&B singer, Usher Raymond, paid a woman $1.1M for allegedly infecting her knowingly with herpes, another woman has stepped forward.
Usher is now facing a $10M lawsuit from a different woman who says he infected her too.
According to TMZ:
Usher had sex with a woman earlier this year who had no idea he was exposing her to Herpes ... according to a new lawsuit she's filed for millions of dollars.
According to the suit, filed by a Jane Doe, she and Usher hooked up in Atlanta on April 16 at her home. She says there was some heavy petting, some kissing, and she performed oral sex on him. They eventually had intercourse, and she says he wore a condom.
However, in the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says they had sex again 12 days later -- this time in a New Orleans hotel room -- and they did not use a condom.
Cut to this month ... when Jane Doe says she read news reports about Usher admitting in docs, connected to an earlier legal case, that he has Herpes Simplex 2.
In this new suit, the woman does not say she's infected. She is concerned because she was "exposed" and says she wouldn't have had sex with Usher if he'd disclosed he has the virus.
She's suing "U.R. IV" -- Usher Raymond IV -- for negligence, battery and emotional distress ... and is seeking at least $10 million in damages.
We've reached out Usher's reps, but haven't heard back yet.

Are we at all surprise Usher's got STDs. This dude has been running through the ladies since 1997.
Here's hoping these ladies get the medical attention they need and for Usher to keep to himself and his wife.

Linkin Park Pens Sweet Letter to the Late-Chester Bennington
Instagram: @chesterbe 

On July 20th, 2017, music fans were shocked to hear the news that Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington, had died.
Bennington was found dead near his home in L.A., he was 41 years old. The Los Angeles coroner  says they are investigating Bennington's death as an apparent suicide but no additional details are available.
Interestingly enough, Bennington died on the birthday of friend and fellow rocker, Chris Cornell. Cornell took his own life in May of this year.
Since Chester's death, fans, bandmembers and musicians have been mourning the rockstar. He was a sound of an entire generation. Bridging the gap between rap and hip-hop and other genres.
Today, Linkin Park posted a letter on their website honoring Chester:

Dear Chester,
Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.
You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.
Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.
Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.
Until we see you again,

Bennington, who sported piercings and tattoos, struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He leaves behind a wife and six children.

Mindy Kaling Pregnant with First Child


Congratulations are in order for Mindy Kaling!
The actress, comedian and author is reportedly expecting her first child. There's no word on who the father is- my guess is ex- BJ Novak but we'll find out eventually.
Kaling is currently working on the final season of her hulu series The Mindy Project. Kaling is also starring in the film A Wrinkle in Time.
According to E! News, the 38-year-old actress was "an unexpected surprise" but that there will not be any changes made to production schedules for her upcoming projects.

Being that I'm Indian, I'm already an auntie to this child.
I'm sure some in the Desi community are beside themselves that Kaling is pregnant and unmarried. I say F*CK YOU!
She's a writer, producer, actress, comedian, director and best-selling author. SHE'S KILLING IT!
I'm sure she'll be a great mom as well.
I cannot wait to see her maternity outfits!

Kaling isn't the only celeb to reveal baby news. Jessica Alba took to Instagram and posted that she's expecting baby no. 3 with husband Cash Warren. The couple have two daughters, Honor Marie and Haven Garner.

If you don't follow Drake's dad on Instagram, you should!
He offers nonstop entertainment and rivals Ms. Tina Lawson's account.
Last year Drake released his own Virginia Black Whiskey and has just released an ad for the alcohol starring his dad, Dennis Graham. On the 'gram, Dennis has been promoting his son's whiskey line for awhile, and now it looks like it's finally paying off.
Dennis' persona rivals Dos Equis' Most Interesting Man with Dennis being the realest dude ever.
Check out the ads below...they're hilarious!

Beyonce Debuts Twins and Post-Baby Bod

Instagram: @beyonce
And here they are....
Beyonce debuted twins, Rumi & Sir, via Instagram with the caption Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. With a series of mom, dad, little girl and baby emojis. So, for all the Stans bad at math...the babies were born on June 13th.
A lot of the Beyhive was confused because Bey says Sir Carter & Rumi. 
Was Rumi not a Carter? Is Sir Carter going to be Sir Carter Carter? Are the boy/ girl? Boys? Girls?
Then, Grandma Tina reposted the photo on her Instagram with the caption:
So Happy my baby shared a photo of her babies with the world ❤️❤️❤️proud grandma hello Sir Carter and Rumi Carter❤️πŸ™πŸΎ❤️ 7/13/2017 Boy and girl what a blessing
There you have it!
In late June TMZ reported the Carters named their twins Rumi and Sir after their company reportedly trademarked the names.
Rumi is allegedly named after the famous 13th century Persian poet (you've most likely seen a quote or two on the 'gram from your friends) and Sir is allegedly named after one of Rumi's famous poems:
“ Bring the pure wine of love and freedom. But sir, a tornado is coming. More wine, we'll teach this storm 
A thing or two about whirling. ”

Some of the Beyhive thinks their queen was inspired by the name Sir from her makeup artist, Sir John.
Queen Bey kept up the ethereal theme she used when she revealed she was pregnant back in February.

Can we talk about how bangin' Bey looks though!? I see a flat tummy!!
A flat stomach! Something some of us have been aspiring for for years...yet this woman is a month postpartum and looks amazing!
We didn't know the exact birthday really up until the post. Grandpa, Mathew Knowles, took to social media on June 18th to announce the babies were indeed here, which we don't know if Bey and Jay were happy with.

Fans were speculating Beyonce would reveal the twins soon after she and Jay-Z were spotted and Vic Mensa's listening party on Thursday evening in Los Angeles.
Some pap photos surfaced.which prompted Bey and her squad to post her own photos of her that same day rocking a mini-skirt and blouse..AGAIN A MONTH AFTER GIVING BIRTH!!
