Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together; Why are you so mad about it?

Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together; Why are you so mad about it?

Back in November, right around Thanksgiving, Chris Brown and Rihanna were spotted together at a club in Berlin. It was Thanksgiving and they were both in the same city in Germany, but neither one was willing to say that they were there together.

I thought it was a little ridiculous at that point that neither RiRi or Breezy would just come out and admit they were a couple again, but apparently they knew something about you people that I had not yet realized. You have lost your collective minds.

We all saw what Brown did to Rihanna, thanks to TMZ, and, yes, it was horrifying. And I'm not saying I endorse the couple's reunion, but like the song says, it's none of your business and it's really just time for you to accept it and move on with life.

Michelle Rhee books her ‘Radical’ view

Michelle Rhee books her ‘Radical’ view

"Why am I a radical? Because in order to live up to our promise as a nation, we cannot rest until we provide a quality education for all our children. If America is truly going to be the land of equal opportunity, we have to provide that opportunity to every single child, regardless of where they live, what color they are, and what their parents do...

"Right now, our public school system isn't working for every child. It isn't working for our economy. And it isn't working for our democracy. As a result... cycles of poverty repeat and... a generation of children... too often children of color... is being denied its civil rights to a high-quality education."

– Excerpted from Chapter Twelve (pgs. 268-269)

Quvenzhané sparks puppy purse mania

Quvenzhané sparks puppy purse mania

NEW YORK – The only thing that outshone nine-year-old best actress nominee Quvenzhané Wallis at the Oscars was the puppy purse she carried on the red carpet.

Just ask Poochie & Co., which makes the purse the young star sported on the red carpet.

"The interest after the award show has been unbelievable," said Leslie Palmer, division president at Cudlie Accessories, which owns Poochie & Co. "We've seen sales shoot up 25 percent to 30 percent since she started wearing them."

Why the Onion’s crappy apology is worthless

Why the Onion’s crappy apology is worthless

When I watched Quvenzhané Wallis telling the story of a little girl called Hushpuppy and her adventures living in a poor Bayou area in "Beasts of the Southern Wild," I was enchanted by how well she articulated her life and the world around her. I had so much hope that she might be the youngest person ever to take home a golden statuette and wanted to believe that everyone else on the planet shared my sentiment.

The best actress trophy went to Jennifer Lawrence for "Silver Linings Playbook," and the pervasive thinking for Quvenzhané was probably something like, "It's OK, Princess, you were still wonderful." But that wasn't the case in the offices of the Onion, the Chicago-based satirical news website. Someone, possibly a social media editor, as yet unnamed, decided to place this on Twitter:
