Toni Braxton is in the hospital in Los Angeles dealing with “health issues” related to Lupus. The Grammy winner announced her hospitalization on Twitter.

Braxton told her fans that she should be able to go home soon, reports The Washington Post. The R&B singer initially revealed she had Lupus in 2010 and has been open with her fans about a heart problem she also suffers from. This is the second time the singer has been hospitalized for issues related to the potentially life-threatening auto-immune disease this year. Yahoo! notes that she revealed how much of a struggle it can be day-to-day in an interview. Braxton stated:

“I have good days and bad days. But today is a great day, if you ever see me a little chunky, it’s because of all the steroids, all the shots and things and my medications. But today’s a great day, I’m a little thinner today, I fit into this fabulous dress, so I feel really good.”

Toni Braxton seemed optimistic about her latest hospital visit, telling fans, “But no worries! I will be out any day now.” Lupus is the same disease that killed her uncle.

The singer recently revealed that the Lupus diagnosis is a major reason for her recent bankruptcy, which resulted in the foreclosure of her house. Braxton also revealed that doctors told her her performing career would likely be diminished because of the disease.

Snoop (Dogg) Lion wants to invest in Celtic because they beat Barcelona PDF Print E-mail

Inspired by the Celtic Champions League group-stage upset against Barcelona that made Rod Stewart cry, Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion) has decided that he wants to invest in the Scottish champions. Even though he didn't really watch the match.


Said Snoop to the Daily Record:

"I got a lot of interest in soccer. It's not a new thing for hip-hop stars to invest in sports teams, but it is a new thing for hip-hop stars to invest in soccer teams.

"I didn't catch the whole Barcelona game, but I watched the highlights. I know Barcelona are a big deal, and it shows Celtic are a big deal as well.

"I see how passionate Celtic fans are about their team, and I could see myself making an investment if any of the board wanted to sell.

"I haven't really thought how much. I don't need to run a soccer club but enough of a percentage to get me on the board so I can be heard.

"I want to bring a bit of Snoop to things.

But before you start thinking Snoop is rushing into this decision, know that he was pictured wearing a Celtic shirt in 2005, and he's already asked his friend David Beckham about the club, who confirmed that "teams don't come much bigger," according to Snoop. The rapper-turned-reggae act then added that one of his first orders of business as a member of the Celtic board would be to sign Beckham "for a season," but he knows that will be difficult since the L.A. Galaxy midfielder is happy in Los Angeles with his family.

Snoop endorses Obama PDF Print E-mail

President Barack Obama has received a critical endorsement in his 2012 re-election campaign: Snoop.

Speaking at a panel at the Toronto International Film Festival late last week, Snoop Lion, the rapper and actor formerly known as Snoop Dogg, laid out what GQ described as an "oddly compelling"—albeit expletive-filled—argument for keeping Obama in the White House.

"We need to give Obama four more years," Snoop said at the conference. "Bush fucked up for eight years, so you gotta at least give him eight years. He cleaned half the shit up in four years."

More insight from the Doggfather:

It ain't like y'all gave him a clean house. You gave him a house where the TV didn't work, the toilet was stuffed up. Everything was wrong with the house. So he had to come in and get y'all thing together. And then he went and knocked down our most hated, our most wanted. The one who had our terror warning on red or orange or whatever color it was. He went and found him. The one Bush couldn't seem to find, the one who seemed to fly away on the day of 9/11—he went and found him. Remember that? Don't forget about that. Now everybody is peaceful and able to move around and have a good time. It's because he made that happen. So please don't forget that, you understand me? So give him four [more] years to get this thing together and finish this deal out. You heard what [Bill] Clinton said? You loved Clinton, didn't ya?

News of the endorsement was joked about on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Wednesday, when the late-night host said that in addition to his endorsement of Obama, Snoop "also endorsed a sleeve of Samoa Girl Scout cookies."

Obama is not the only candidate in the 2012 presidential race to receive a hip-hop endorsement.

Earlier this month, Nicki Minaj contributed a surprising verse to a new Lil Wayne mixtape. On it, she sings, "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are fucking up the economy."

On Monday, though, Minaj tweeted that she was being sarcastic.

Barack Obama wins election for second term as president PDF Print E-mail

Obama Wins!President Barack Obama handily defeated Gov. Mitt Romney and won himself a second term on Tuesday after a bitter and historically expensive race that was primarily fought in just a handful of battleground states. Obama beat Romney after nabbing almost every one of the 12 crucial battleground states.

The Romney campaign's last-ditch attempt to put blue-leaning Midwestern swing states in play failed as Obama's Midwestern firewall sent the president back to the White House for four more years. Obama picked up the swing states of New Hampshire, Michigan, New Mexico, Iowa, Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Ohio. Of the swing states, Romney picked up only North Carolina. Florida is still too close to call, but even if Romney wins the state, Obama still beat him in the Electoral College vote. The popular vote will most likely be narrower than the president's decisive Electoral College victory.

In a sweeping victory speech early Wednesday morning, Obama thanked every American who voted, and vowed to work with leaders from both parties to tackle the country's challenges.

"Our economy is recovering, a decade of war is ending, a long campaign is now over," he told a crowd of cheering supporters in Chicago. "And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I have learned from you and you have made me a better president." Obama added he has "never been more hopeful about America. ... We're not as divided as our politics suggest. We remain more than a collection of blue states and red states."

In his speech, he offered clues to the policy goals of his second term, which included a deficit reduction plan that combines tax increases with spending cuts, a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's federal immigration laws and tax reform. He called on Republicans to join him in achieving those goals.

The battle for the White House between Obama and Romney divided the nation, causing, at times, bitter disputes between the parties. Obama urged his supporters to look beyond the fight of the past several months and defended the process of choosing a president.

"I know that political campaigns can sometimes seem small, even  silly," Obama said. "And that provides plenty of fodder for the cynics who tell us  that politics is nothing more than a contest of evils or the domain of  special interests. If you ever get the chance to talk to folks who  turned out to our rallies and along the rope lines of high school gyms,  or saw folks working late at campaign office or some tiny county a long way from home, you'll discover something else."

Romney conceded in Boston in a speech around 1 a.m. ET. "Like so many of you, Paul [Ryan] and I have left everything on the field. We have given our all to this campaign," Romney said. "I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead your country in another direction. But the nation chose another leader." Romney congratulated the president and his campaign on their victory.

The Obama victory marks an end to a years-long campaign that saw historic advertisement spending levels, countless rallies and speeches, and three much-watched debates.

The Romney campaign cast the election as a referendum on Obama's economic policies, frequently comparing him to former President Jimmy Carter and asking voters the Reagan-esque question of whether they are better off than they were four years ago. But the Obama campaign pushed back, blanketing key states such as Ohio early on with ads painting him as a multimillionaire more concerned with profits than people. The Obama campaign also aggressively attacked Romney on reproductive rights issues, tying Romney to a handful of Republican candidates who made controversial comments about rape and abortion.

The ads were one reason Romney faced a steep likeability problem for most of the race, until his expert performance at the first presidential debate in Denver in October. After that debate, and a near universal panning of Obama's performance, Romney caught up with Obama in national polls, and almost closed his favorability gap with the president. In polls, voters consistently gave him an edge over Obama on who would handle the economy better and create more jobs, even as they rated Obama higher on caring about the middle class.

The Transformation PDF Print E-mail

We live in a world that is ever evolving just as its people are. A Global economy that is just as polarized as American Politics. Wake Up, America!!!  The transformation is here and finally we have entered a new era of people politics.  No longer are the days when we as a people have to rely on the information delivered from paid talking heads on television. At the speed in which information travels it’s not shocking that the Global economy is just as transformational.  This new Global economy will require that the private and public sector evolve at a paste more rapidly than ever. There are so many big issues to be addressed today such as JOBS; global warming; the cost and benefits of technology and last but not least better education for all.

We as a country should no longer be duped by any political party stuck in the past, and bent on maintaining the status quo. Today more than ever there are real problems and the financial discourse on Wall Street has severely affected the well-being of those on Main Street. Looking back at history, it’s well known that during the non progress era there was enough anger over welfare and affirmative action that it brought about another transformation that would come to be known as the Reagan revolution. Fast forwarding to exactly twenty years ago, this democracy embarked on a new wave of politics when one of the most astute politicians took the stage and changed politics forever. He stated that there were fundamental questions that we should ask: One of those questions was how we make the American Dream of opportunity a reality for all Americans.

During this period we experienced the essence of people’s politics and ironically, this change resulted in a great period of growth and prosperity for all Americans.  Moving ahead to the last decade during an era where our democracy was challenged by a few, the country was plunged into the worst economic period in decades, with ‘greed’ at its root.  The country was temporarily thrown into utter chaos and disarray. Finally, someone with the audacity to question the status quo with a transformational message of “hope and change” presented bold new leadership.  This too, however, was seriously derailed two years into its existence by the advent of a new but very vocal and disruptive group chanting slogans like “let’s take our country back.”

Regrettably, “pragmatism” and “compromise” have become dirty words in this new democracy.  All we can seem to focus on is the things that make us different and drive us apart, rather than encourage the common goals we share. Someone once said, “this nation is more than the sum of its parts, and out of many we are one”. If we truly cared about the American dream we must accept that we cannot solve the challenges of our time unless we solve them together. With this year’s election shaping up as it is, the American electorate’s role and responsibility is being tested, and we should ensure that every vote counts. There are those who set out to oppose and suppress the rights of the people to vote. Today I am proud to say I truly believe that there is no liberal or conservative America there is only the United States of America. Together, we pledge allegiance to the same flag, and together we can help Transform America.
