Many may not be aware that former NBA Great Kevin Johnson is running for mayor of Sacramento, CA. K.J. was born and raised in Sacramento, and turned his former high school into a Charter School, and has also brought new businesses into the community. He has, however, been plagued by allegations of inappropriate relationships with young girls. This is a brief clip from a recent debate.
With apologies to Beyonce, who is at another level, Keyshia Cole is a true R&B superstar. She hasn't yet shown the crossover appeal of Beyonce, but in the hierarchy of young singers, she's a clear number 2. Her latest CD, "Just Like You" is now 4 singles deep and she could easily release at least 2 more singles. Keyshia has the drive and tenacity that creates superstars.
A scary scene at Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, GA. A student and teacher fighting. Can we really all just get along!!!!!
