Kelly Rowland's "Dirty Laundry," a slow ballad about the dark side of fame, her competition with Beyoncé and how it was linked to Rowland's abusive relationship, puts its listeners through the emotional wringer — so you can only imagine how intense it is for her to perform it live.

At a Washington, D.C. concert on Sunday, Rowland got so upset during her performance of the song that she had to stop, bow her head and cry. After wild applause and the crowd's chanting and support, Rowland started again.

In typical Kanye West fashion, Kanye West actually tried to screen a new music video on the wall of the Alamo memorial in San Antonio but cops shut it down: "It's very disrespectful to people who died there." Reminder: This is a man whose next album is called Yeezus. He would hawk pineapple-flavored Cîroc on the roof of the Anne Frank House. [Radar Online]

I really don't think the answer to equality is for white men to be complacent. Or for them to step aside because they fucked everything up. This is the type of angry, nonsensical feminism that I don't like to be connected to. How about the desire for women, poc, those with disabilities, low-income persons etc to have te same opportunities to succeed? And that doesn't mean that white men have to become some sort of sacrifice in order for that to happen.
