All eyes have been on Bobbi Kristina since Whitney Houston's unexpected death. Its a damn shame that the poor girl cant even go to the store without being followed by TMZ.

But THIS is a positive rumor so I decided to cover it.

Six Flags Introduces Mr. Freeze Roller Coaster

Ima a huge rollercoaster fan!!! The closest amusement park to Milwaukee is Six Flags Great America, which I have rode all of the rollercoasters there aside from one 1. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the video for this!!
"Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis have announced a new roller coaster called Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast. The roller coaster, which launches this spring, takes riders backwards through a 190-foot tunnel, into a 180-degree inversion before climbing more than 200-feet in the air where they will find themselves suspended, dangling in the air, before repeating the experience. The ride is patterned after Batman’s cold-hearted arch rival in the DC Comics Batman series."

Geraldo Rivera blames Trayvon Martin's hoodie

Former talk show host Geraldo Rivera seems to think its Trayvon Martin's own fault for death due to the fact that he wore a hoodie. Sigh...Rivera went on “Fox & Friends” this morning.
One of the many ignorant statements he made during the show was
“But I am urging the parents of black and Latino youngsters particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies,” Rivera insisted. “I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.”
Check out the full interview below. 

Whitney Houston's death ruled accidental

Its been over a month since music icon Whitney Houston passed away. The world has been waiting to hear what the official cause of death was...well the toxicology reports have been concluded. According to the coroner Whitney's past history of cocaine use along with atherosclerotic heart disease could have triggered a heart attack causing her to pass out and eventually drown in the bathtub. 


In addition to cocaine other drugs found in her system were Benadryl, Xanax, Flexeril, and marijuana but the coroner decided they didn’t have anything to do with her death. It is reported that its apparent she did use the cocaine immediately prior to her death. 

Patricia Houston, Whitney's sister in law and manager, released the following statement on behalf of the Houston family.

“We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.”

15 facts about Trayvon Martin's death

On February 26, 2012, a 17-year-old African-American named Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida. The shooter was George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old white man. Zimmerman admits killing Martin, but claims he was acting in self-defense. Three weeks after Martin’s death, no arrests have been made and Zimmerman remains free.

Michael Jackson unreleased music catalog stolen

This shouldn't have happened...more importantly how did it happen? Apparently Michael Jackson's entire catalog was stolen from Sony's computer. The catalog is rumored to be worth over $250 million...and contains close to 50,000 songs. What trips me out is the hacking took place last April...and Sony is just NOW acknowledging and admitting it. SMH. I guess what I don't understand is why Sony kept unreleased songs on their website. Well, when a ton of new MJ songs and albums hit the airwaves...we know why.
