THE LAS VEGAS STRIP HORROR! Murder Charge for Woman Accused of Deadly Vegas Strip Crash
*The 24-year-old woman accused of driving her car on a sidewalk and through a crowd on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday, killing one and injuring more than 30 others, has been charged with murder.
Lakeisha Holloway, reportedly from Oregon, is in custody and will be charged with one count of murder with the use of a deadly weapon, the district attorney’s office said. She may face additional charges including multiple counts of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon, child abuse and neglect and leaving the scene of an accident.

Officials say they have ruled out terrorism as a possible motive. However, they do believe the incident was “an intentional act,” based upon the car’s movements. The suspect went up on the sidewalk “two, maybe three times,” according to police.
The sheriff said she was very stoic and didn’t appear to be “distressed” from her actions.
“The video [of the incident] obviously shows intention,” the sheriff said today.
Holloway had been in Las Vegas for about a week and living in a car, officials said today. She said it was her car, but the car was registered to another person in Oregon, officials said.
Holloway could be in court as early as Tuesday, the district attorney’s office said. The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff said.

OBNOXIOUS ARETHA? Well that’s what her behaviour was considered while attending ‘The Color Purple’ Play
Aretha Franklin’s Behavior Called Obnoxious at ‘The Color Purple’ Play
Rumor has it, Aretha Franklin recently exhibited what some consider some diva behavior.
Last week, Franklin attended a performance of “The Color Purple” and was accused of behaving obnoxiously, according to Page Six. The site reports:

According to a witness, Franklin showed up late to a performance at the Jacobs Theatre, took up six seats around her and began holding her phone in the air to snap photos of the show — and that was all before intermission!
“She arrived a few minutes late with four bodyguards. One to sit in front, one behind, and one on either side. The prime orchestra seat in front of her was empty,” entertainment writer Brandon Voss posted to Facebook friends.

Then, “During the opening number she began taking photos on her phone, lifting it high and proud, much to the murmuring disgust of those around us,” Voss reported. Then an “older white lady” in the audience began “gesturing wildly for her to put down the phone, letting her bodyguard know it wasn’t allowed.”

That’s when an usher arrived, and, “It took her an eternity, but she finally shut it down.”
But at intermission, the woman who’d complained, “realized it wasn’t a human being but was in fact THE Aretha Franklin, she APOLOGIZED,” Voss posted. “Because it’s Aretha f?-?-?king Franklin, and she can take pictures whenever and wherever she wants.”
But, “Then shortly before the second act starts, after being approached by many fans, she accuses me of not being in the right seat and wants to check my ticket,” Voss wrote. “She doesn’t recognize me .?.?. [m]aybe because I was on time? I didn’t think my mouth could open that wide.”
And “finally, after the show was over, her bodyguards asked our whole row to file out the other side because Aretha was just going to sit and chill.” But Voss figured, “I have no problem with any of this, quite frankly. #RESPECT.”

Franklin’s camp has yet to comment.

Anti-Diversity Twitter Trolls Reject Harry Potter’s Black Hermione Actress Noma Dumezweni!
Harry Potter-loving Twitter trolls against diversity are mobilized and downright livid over the casting choice for an upcoming play in London. A Black actress has been chosen as squad member, Hermione Granger, in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Noma Dumezweni, a London-based Laurence Olivier Award-winning actress originally from Swaziland, will take on the roll of adult Hermione.
Though the character’s race isn’t explicit throughout the books (although some would disagree), White actress Emma Watson portrayed her in the Harry Potter flicks. Some fans wants to keep it racially consistent, but as Raw Story notes:
Many girls of color read Hermione to be black due to the descriptions of her hair as well. Color doesn’t change her character. Hermione is a strong, intelligent heroine that inspired a generation of young women to embrace their “bossy” side and see it more as strength and leadership. Hermione also overcame a lot of racism while at Hogwarts. The parallel is remarkable if you think about it. Due to being Muggle-born, Hermione was teased mercilessly and many refused to acknowledge her right to attend the school for wizards.

It is not surprising that racists lost their minds over the news spreading their hate tweets all over Twitter. These are just a small sample of the disgusting nonsense that flooded the internet.
Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has been criticized for the lack of diversity in her books, loves the new Hermione casting:
SHAMEFUL…When will we get over race?

New Tupac Shakur Movie to Star Dead Ringer Demetrius Shipp (PHOTOS)
*We know what you’re thinking and we agree, dude is a dead ringer for Tupac Shakur.
We just hope he can act as well as he looks like late rap legend, if you get our drift.
His name is Demetrius Shipp and according to TMZ, he’s getting his big break playing 2Pac in “All Eyez On Me,” a Morgan Creek Production.
We’re told the biopic covers the rapper’s entire life, including his murder in 1996.
Production sources tell us Demetrius’ father worked in the music biz, and crossed paths with Tupac when Demetrius was a kid, and he’s been a huge fan ever since.
We’re told producer L.T. Hutton approached Demetrius to star as the rapper in no small part because of the obvious similarities. He immediately took some crash acting classes … 4 times a week.
Hmm, time will tell. Oh yeah, if you’re wondering who’s helming the film, that would be music video director, Benny Boom. “All Eyez On Me” is being shot in Atlanta where production began this past week.

Awwwwwww, Dwayne Johnson Shares First Pic of Daughter Jasmine
*At the tender age of four days, Jasmine Johnson has made her Instagram debut.
Proud pop Dwayne Johnson on Sunday (Dec. 20) shared the photo of his newborn daughter – and first child with girlfriend Lauren Hashian.
“Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning,” he captioned the photo in a lengthy post thanking fans for their good wishes.

“Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I’d have a good shot at being a great father,” he added. “Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours.”

Jasmine was born on Dec. 16. Johnson also has a 14-year-old daughter, Simone, with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

FDA Lifts Ban on Blood Donations from Gay Men, Now Requires 12-Month Abstinence
The FDA has lifted the 32-year-old ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men, but there are still limitations on which gay and bisexual men are allowed to donate.

via AP: The Food and Drug Administration announced Monday it will replace the blanket ban with a new policy barring donations from men who have had sex with a man in the previous year. While the one-year-ban has been criticized by activists it matches policies in other countries, including Australia, Japan and the U.K.

Gay rights activists said the new policy is a “step in the right direction,” but falls short.
“It continues to stigmatize gay and bisexual men,” said David Stacy, of the Human Rights Campaign, the largest U.S. gay rights group. “It simply cannot be justified in light of current scientific research and updated blood screening technology.”

Monday’s policy shift was first announced in late 2014 and followed years of outreach by medical groups and gay rights groups who said the blanket ban no longer made sense. FDA officials signaled their agreement Monday, saying in a statement the change is “backed by sound science and continues to protect our blood supply.”

The lifetime ban was put in place during the early years of the AIDS crisis and was intended to protect the blood supply from what was a then little-understood disease. But many medical groups, including the American Medical Association, argued that the policy was no longer supported by science, given advances in HIV testing.
All U.S. blood donations are screened for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. But there is a roughly 10-day window between initial infection and when the virus can be detected in the bloodstream. The American Red Cross estimates the risk of getting an HIV-positive blood donation is 1 in 1.5 million for U.S. patients. About 15.7 million blood donations are collected in the U.S. each year.

In 2006 the Red Cross, the American Association of Blood Banks, and America’s Blood Centers called the ban “medically and scientifically unwarranted.”
The FDA concluded that moving to a one-year abstinence requirement would not change the safety of the U.S. blood supply, based on data from Australia and other sources.

On the current blood donor questionnaire, men are asked if they have ever had sex with another man since 1977– the start of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. Potential donors who answer positively are barred from donating blood. The new questionnaire, as outlined by the FDA, would ask men if they have had sex with another man in the last 12 months.
