Friday (Sept. 30th), Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame and his CEO mother Deb Atney hosted a celebrity bowling tournament, where the proceeds went to charity. Fellow philanthropic rapper Ludacris and author of Priceless Inspiration Toya Wright attended the event. Troubled comedian Katt Williams, Lil’ Chuckee and Shawty Lo also came out to support.
Unfoturnatley, by the night’s end, former associates of Waka initiated a gun-less brawl, which halted the charitable festivities. Luda’s mother confirmed the event continued after the fight, and The Luda Foundation team was victorious over Rah Rah’s Village of Hope team and Toya Wright’s Visual Beauty team with an impressive ten strikes.

It all started over 25 years ago, while an unborn Ciara was growing in her mother’s uterus. Unbeknownst to her, she’d develop appendages that would eventually become the butt of all jokes.
Twitter, being the epicenter of assholes, took advantage of Ciara’s naturally long appendages for the sake of retweets and hurtful jokes. The impulsive social media cowards who chose to negatively comment on Ciara failed to follow up with photos of their physical appearances.
Ciara entertained the naysayers by enlightening them of her fortunate whereabouts: “Deez Lil piggies went 2 Paris Deez Lil piggies sat front row..” For those who don’t understand, she’s implying that while you talk about her obviously long toes, they are enjoying a front row seat at Paris Fashion Week’s most celebrated designer’s fashion shows – somewhere you aren’t and will likely never be.
With the rise of suicides caused by bullying, you’d think we would elevate to a maturer level where this is less frequent. Only in a perfect world.
The fashion show Ci Ci was speaking on was Givenchy’s ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2012. Jennifer Hudson, Kanye West, Chanel Iman and Naomi Cambell all sat front row alongside Ciara in support of Riccardo Tisci’s collection. Read More
