You Said It…
By Souleo. Wyclef Jean announced he is running for president of Haiti and Sean Penn ain't having it; Queen Latifah ignites gay rumors once again; Lady Gaga admits the obvious (drug use); nominations for MTV's Video Music Awards create a battle of the Stans; and a proposed mosque near the 9/11 site leads to major controversy. It's all here in this week's round-up. Don't be scared.
Sean Penn Challenges Wyclef Jean's Presidential Bid
Wyclef Jean's announcement that he is running to be the president of Haiti in the aftermath of the country's natural disaster has elicited a range of reactions: surprise, hope and suspicion. Actor, Sean Penn has had the latter reaction as he called out Wyclef for allegedly mishandling $400,000 of his Yele Haiti charity (Wyclef has since stepped down from the organization) and questioning if he really has the ability to make a difference. Hmmm, food for thought.
"the fact remains that Haiti needs someone who understands politics and is ready to give his life for his country. Haiti needs a president who actually resides on the island and not someone who will fly in every 6 months. I think it's ridiculous that anyone thinks Wyclef Jean is qualified to run a nation when he couldn't even run his own business affairs. His own band member (who is also Haitian) refuses to endorse him."

Is This What a "Straight" Woman Does?
For years Queen Latifah has beat around the bush (no pun intended) when it comes to allegations that she is a lesbian. Well, the cat may be out of the bag this time (again, no pun intended) with these recent pictures of her and personal trainer/"friend" Jeanette Jenkins embracing on a yacht. As this commenter notes few are surprised at the pictures and many would support the Queen if she is in fact a lesbian and comes on out..
"now who didn't know Cleo was a lesbian?? C'mon son! LOL! Do you Queen! That's her business!"
Lady Gaga Admits Drug Use
Here she goes again, grabbing headlines with one of her "shocking" revelations. Well, I can't say I was super surprised by Lady Gaga admitting she "occasionally" snorts cocaine in an interview with Vanity Fair. I mean after all she doesn't come across as a little conservative homemaker. Still, the commenter below is quite funny for their reaction to the news.
"Now I know why her music stink ....
The Stans Can't Take It!
MTV's Video Music Award nominees were recently announced and while Lady Gaga nabbed a historic 13 nominations for the year, it is the nominations surrounding Beyonce and Rihanna that has Stans acting a fool on the blogs. It is so hilarious when the Stans defend celebrities like it's their mama.
"Beyonce got 8 Noms while sitting on her a** while Rihanna working and falling on stage only got 1 lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
