Jennifer Hudson showed off her slim figure in a hot pink dress at Apollo In The Hamptons: A Night Of Legends at The Creeks on August 11, 2012 in East Hampton, New York.
Roughly 300 people showed up to Union Station this weekend for R. Kelly’s book signing at Barnes & Nobles. His book is entitled “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me.” The event turned out really well and the books went quickly.
Last week actor/activist Harry Belafonte blasted pop stars Beyonce and Jay Z for turning their backs on their social responsibility.
85 year old actor/activist Harry Belafonte accuses high profile celebrities of turning their back on their social responsibilities, namely Jay Z and Beyonce…
Asked if he were happy with the image of minorities in Hollywood today Belafonte replied,
“Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — shit. It is sad. And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black”
Beyonce fires back with a list of her accomplishments…
In response to Belafonte’s words, Beyonce’s representative emailed what she called “An abbreviated list of the unselfish work Beyoncé has done and continues to do.” The list included co-founding The Survivor Foundation “a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston”; donating “100K in 2008 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike”; performing in “MTV’s Hope For Haiti Now! Benefit in addition to making a generous monetary donation,” among many other charitable activities.
