Does RKelly Really Believe he Can Fly?

Closing arguments are set to begin on Thursday, June 12, 2008 in the RKelly Child Pornography trial. On this past Tuesday, the prosecution and the defense both rested their case. RKelly explained to the judge his decision not to testify. This would be the only statement he would make throughout the entire 6-week trial.
The case is very simple (in case you've been hiding under a rock and are clueless to what this is all about). Robert Sylvester Kelly is accused of having videotaped himself having sex with and urinating on an underage girl of about age 13 years approximately 10 years ago.

Kelly and the alleged victim maintain that it is not they who are the stars of this production. The prosecution brought forth witnesses (friends,schoolmates and family of the young lady and former business associates and lovers of Kelly's) who testified that it is without a shadow of a doubt RKelly and the young lady that are depicted in the raunchy 27 minute video-tape that has been shown to the court observers and jurors.

Kelly has been charged in 14-counts of child pornography and each count carries a 4-15 year sentence. RKelly only needs to be found guilty of one count in order to be sent to prison.

Many people in Chicago believe that RKelly is guilty but will not serve any time in prison because he is RKelly. Some of the testimony in the case was extremely damaging, especially from former lovers who testified that RKelly frequently video taped sex acts between him and other ladies.

If RKelly really believes he can fly, then he needs to spread his wings and fly right out of that courtroom, because from my window on the second floor--his situation looks bleak.

Clinton Backs Obama for Democratic Nomination for President

Saturday, June 7, 2008 will go down in history as the day that Hillary said 'Uncle'--'Uncle Barack', that is.
After a long, hard, and often confrontational campaign for the presidential nomination of the Democratic party, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton conceded her losses and vowed to back Senator Barack Obama's campaign to the White House. According to published news reports, Senator Clinton issued the following statement to a crowd of her supporters in Washington DC, a few days after Sen. Obama secured more than enough of the delegates needed for the Democratic Nomination;
"I endorse him (Sen.Obama)and throw my full support behind him." She followed by requesting that all of her supporters should use their energy, passion and strength to help put Senator Barack Obama in the White House. About 18 million people voted for Hillary Clinton. She will go down in history as the first woman to come this close to capturing a nomination.
Now Barack Obama is on the hunt for a formidable vice-presidential running mate...

Forbes Magazine Names Oprah Winfrey and Tiger Wood Most Powerful Celebrities

Atta girl, Oprah! Atta boy Tiger!
Today Forbes Magazine released the Top 100 Most Powerful Celebrity List and who tops the list but my girl, "O" and my boy, "Tiger" for the 2nd year in a row!
It seems that money earning power wasn't the only thing taken into account, according to Matthew Miller of Forbes Magazine.
The pair were also crowned king and queen of the list because of their high profile internet presence, large number of press clippings, magazine covers, and mentions on tv and radio. In 2007 Oprah earned a mere $275 million and Woods a paltry $115 million.
Also named in the top ten were newlyweds, Beyonce Knowles and her hubby,rap mogul and entrepreneur, Shawn Carter aka JayZ. Knowles earned only $80 million in 2007 and Carter $82 million (it's obvious they didn't marry for money).
The 2008 Most Powerful Celebrity list contained 20 film actors, 20 athletes, 10 musicians, 10 talk show hosts, 10 tv actors,5 director/producers, 5 celebrity personalites, 4 authors, 4 hip-hop impesarios, 4 chefs and 3 fashion models.
