Derek Jeter Said What About 50 Cent?

Rumors are swirling that Former Yankees player Derek Jeter pulled out of an underwear deal when he learned that 50 Cent was going to be part of the deal also, citing 50 as being too “urban,” which is code for BLACK. But isn’t Derek Jeter half black, you ask? That he is, and of course there is more to the story. Mathias Ingvarsson, a majority owner of Frigo, a men’s underwear company claims in a lawsuit that Jeter signed a 3-year publicity contract with the brand, but in 2013 when the underwear line approached rapper 50 Cent to come aboard,

The Progress Report: The Cosby Show Reunites, 50 Cent BFFs With Bette Midler, And Beyonce’s Ego

The Cosby Show reunion on the Today Show

cosby_show_reunion

Even though Blindie already covered the reunion of America's most beloved black family, pre-Obama era, there can never be enough said about the Huxtables. Before Barack and Michelle came on the scene, they were our black royalty... despite being fictional. I know we were all supposed to feel all warm and fuzzy seeing the Huxtable clan with Matt Lauer during breakfast, but the whole thing just made me wish that maybe it’s time to stop carrying a torch for The Cosby Show and put some TV shows on the air in THIS CENTURY that feature people of color that are just as progressive. After all, the show debuted 25 years ago! It’s a shame there hasn't been a show to fill the Cosby gap and clearly the networks aren't looking either because they gave us My Wife and Kids, The Bernie Mac Show and Girlfriends. Trust us, nobody will be talking about those shows 25 years from now. If more people watched, we might be talking about The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. C’mon people! Progress: 100 steps backward. Sadly, boasting about the progressiveness of The Cosby Show for 25 years has reversed all the advancement and social change the show caused in its original eight-year run.

50 Cent and Bette Midler BFFing

It's official hip-hop is the safest most family-friendly mainstream music in America. Curtis Jackson, AKA 50 Cent, teamed up with Bette Midler for a second year in a row to help fix a park. What, you were expecting a duet? Maybe Mr. Cent was listening to “Wind Beneath My Wings" when he was recuperating from those 9 gunshot wounds. Hopefully the unlikely besties will collaborate musically! Progress: 97 steps forward.

Beyonce releases new video “Ego”

beyonce_ego

Does Beyonce’s ego prevent her from making another video concept? People like to say that Woody Allen makes the same film over and over again so why does Bey get a pass? I’m not denying her talent (her musical talent), but why are all of her videos essentially rehashes of the same Bob Fosse concept? Boh-ring! Still, watching her dance with two women who aren’t Destiny’s Child always amuses me. Progress: 798 step-ball-changes backward.

50 Cent Talks Business In His New Book The 50th Law

Rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent teams up with Robert Greene, bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power, to explain the laws of power of the business world in his new book The 50th Law. Describing the book as an urban take on Greene's 48 Laws, 50 Cent says it will "create and capture a visible parallel between street life and coporate America standard and structure." In a recent Fortune magazine article Greene compares the rapper to Parisien diplomat Talleyrand and French general Napoleon Bonaparte for his fearlessness and willingness to take risks and says "the book shows how powerfully that works in a business sense." 50 Cent is definitely no slouch when it comes to business, as he's already successfully launched his own clothing and sneaker line, and partnered with numerous companies to brand a range of products from condoms, body sprays, and a flavored drink to his own label G-Unit Records with Interscope and a book publishing arm with MTV and Pocket Books. The 50th Law is set to be released in November.
