Derrick Rose being sued for allegedly raping ex- girlfriend


NBA Derrick Rose is being sued by someone saying she was a former girlfriend and she alleges some troubling, criminal activities by Rose including rape, according to a TMZ report.

“The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, says she and Rose dated from 2011 to 2013.  During that time, Rose allegedly tried to pressure her to masturbate in front of him, allow him to have sex with her friends and engage in group sex with strangers, all of which she says she refused….

Rose and his friends broke into her apartment and gang raped her while she was incapacitated. She says she remembers only “flashes” of the incident, but can remember the defendants forcibly raping her. She claims she waited for two years to file the suit because she was “ashamed and embarrassed” of what happened and concerned her “conservative family” would find out.”

There is no criminal report filed in this case. Rose nor his attorney have yet to comment on the report or suit.

Willow Smith new face for Marc Jacobs



The 14-year-old singer-actress Willow Smith  is the new face of Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 collection. She sits perched on a ladder, clad in a black skirt and sequined top in the goth-inspired ad, photographed by David Sims.
Marc Jacobs released a statement about the new face for his line.

“Ever since our first Juergen Teller ad in 1998 which featured Kim Gordon on stage wearing my dress, I have always preferred collaborating with the people who inspire me to give new life to the clothes we show on our runway.

Over the years we have photographed an incredibly diverse and exceptional group of talented friends and individuals who I greatly admire: Victoria Beckham, Jamie Bochert, Jarvis Cocker, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus, Dakota Fanning, William Eggleston, Jessica Lange, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stephen Malkmus, Samantha Morton, Kate Moss, Charlotte Rampling, Winona Ryder, Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Sherman, Michael Stipe, and Rufus Wainwright, just to name a few. Beauty, style and talent know no age. It is those individuals whose creativity, unique vision, and voice inspire all of us here to create and express ourselves through our medium: fashion. 
Photographed by David Sims, this season’s ads feature friends, each of whom evoke a sense of intrigue and inspiration and collectively provoke a true consideration for individuality.

Here today I would like to share (not CHER) with you first, the talented, stylish and charming Willow Smith.”

Tom Hanks son Chet explains why he can say the N-Word


The rapper son of Oscar winner Tom Hanks,  Chet not only repeatedly used the N-word on social media but defended its use because he believes it “unifies the culture of hip-hop across all races.” He continued in a video clarifying his stance. “I don’t accept society getting to decide what ANYBODY can or can’t say. That’s something we call FREE SPEECH.”

Chet also pointed out Black people are still being literally KILLED by a RACIST and [expletive] system, “We have also reached a point where the word can no longer have a negative connotation if we so choose. And who is to say only black people can use it? The way I see it, it’s a word that unifies the culture of HIP-HOP across ALL RACES, which is actually kind of a beautiful thing.”
