Beyonce as X-Men’s Storm Better Than Halle Berry!

Beyonce jumped into the wet dreams of comic geeks everywhere when she attended Ciara’s birthday party dressed as X-Men’s premiere black character – Storm! The internet and Bey followers are all a dither complimenting Bey Bey on her costume – well, of course they are, we all know what happens when you hate on Beyonce. But seriously, Beyonce’s Storm costume is actually quite good, especially when you compare it to Hollywood’s version of the DC comic heroine – Halle Berry in a bad wig with bangs.

Halle Berry Dumps Eurotrash Husband Number 3 -Olivier Martinez!

Somewhere Gabriel Aubry has a smug look on his pretty face as he fondly recalls punching Olivier Martinez during their 2012 altercation. Aubry is also probably saying “I told you so” in a French Canadian accent as he reads the joint statement put out by his baby mama and her short-lived husband.

Fox’s character, Marty McFly, in Back to the Future II (1989), traveled forward in time to help his future children, black people thought about how things haven’t changed that much in this so-called future.

The Weekend ‘Can’t Feel His Face’…But Taylor Swift Is Feeling His Hair

Canadian singer Abel Tesfaye, who goes by the moniker The Weekend, and sings the hit song “Can’t Feel My Face,” was apparently petted like a puppy when he met singer Taylor Swift at a Grammy after-party this year. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the dreadlocked musician tells of how Swift did not abide by that unspoken golden rule that black people have – don’t touch our hair, at least not without asking first. Tesafye says, “the whole time she was talking, she was kind of, like, petting my hair?” he said of the 15-minute encounter. “I think she was
