The Legendary Elizabeth Taylor has died today of Congestive Heart Failure at the age of 79. She was a true inspiration to myself and many other woman around the world. She was so beautiful and so loving. She will forever be missed. R.I.P.
R&B singer Kelly Rowland sang the National Anthem before a game at Sunday’s New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears game at the New Meadowlands Stadium on October 3, 2010 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Rowland almost pulled out after suffering from a cold but stuck to the gig and did very well I must say. She was joined on the field by 125 Breast Cancer survivors dressed in pink T-shirts who formed a giant ribbon during her performance. Rowland, along with both teams, were showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Giants invited the women as part of “A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives Initiative” that encourages women over 40 to obtain an annual mammogram.
Breast cancer is the second-most common form of cancer in women behind non-melanoma skin cancer.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 191-thousand woman were diagnosed with it in 2006, the last year for which numbers are available.
Check out the video of Kelly’s performance below…
Wyclef Jean has been hospitalized in New Jersey after suffering stress and fatigue, the former Haitian presidential hopeful confirmed via his Twitter account on Monday (September 27).
The musician, who entered the race in hopes of succeeding the sitting Haitian president only to have his bid rejected by election officials, reportedly has been battling headaches since he last returned from the earthquake-ravaged country. A Haitian music message board first reported the news of ‘Clef‘s hospitalization over the weekend.
Earlier this month, Jean abandoned his appeal of the election board’s decision and set forth on a hectic schedule that included trips overseas, meetings with U.N. officials and work on a new album, according to HaitianBeatz.com.
The Jean family released a statement on Monday afternoon also confirming Wyclef‘s health status; the family said the charismatic former Fugees frontman would be back in the public eye within a week after taking on a “grueling” workload.
“Wyclef Jean has had an extremely grueling three months — truly an exhausting eight months, since the earthquake when he recommitted himself to our homeland and his passion for our people,” the statement read. “He is currently suffering the effects of lack of sleep and stress, global travel, even the endless public eye, and has asked that his fans and supporters bear with him for the next several days as he regains his physical health and stamina. Then he will be back out in front of the crusade to rebuild Haiti and his pledge to make it even better for business.”
