IN THE NEWZ:
The biggest news story this week was the recent photos that has been posted on the net of former Chicago Cubs player Sammy Sosa and his shocking, ghostly appearance at the Latin Grammy Awards. He came clean on what happened with his skin.
"It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some," he said during the "Primer Impacto" program at the Univision Spanish network.
"It's a cream that I have, that I use to soften (my skin), but has bleached me some. I'm not a racist, I live my life happily," he said.
Speculation flew that he either had bleached his skin or was suffering from a medical condition.
Sosa, who also wears colored contacts, said he uses the cream as a moisturizer and is in discussions to market it.
He also denied that the was trying to look like Michael Jackson.
Wow, whats really going on? And why did he say he wasnt trying to be racist??? Did he mean he wasnt trying to be white? Hello.

"I am grateful to be a woman," said Angelou, who won the lifetime achievement award. "I must have done something great in another life."
As for the men: "You have to write your own poem," the poet said to laughter, including from former president Bill Clinton, the man who had called upon her to recite poetry at his inauguration.

In other sports newz, the University of Central Florida reportedly has lost its $3 million exclusive contract with Adidas after basketball player Marcus Jordan insisted on wearing his father, Michael's, Nike Air Jordans for the school's opening basketball game.
Marcus, 18-year-old son of the NBA legend, says UCF had promised when recruiting him to the school that he could wear the famous Jordan brand.
The ex-wife of gospel recording star BeBe Winans is reportedly pleased with Chicago based talk show queen Oprah Winfrey's decision this week to remove him from the Karaoke episode on her show. The wife Winans said the ban "further demonstrates the fact that Oprah continues to be a strong voice against domestic violence and that she's willing to take the steps necessary to defend the defenseless. The singer will not be allowed to appear on 'Oprah' until domestic violence charges filed against him are resolved.
Well, looks like Bebe really needs to have the Good Lord on his side now, now that the Big O has punished him!

???????????????WORDZ TO THE WHYs?????????????????????????????
Why did the paparazzi jock Mike Tyson and his daughter for a picture causing Tyson to beat a cameraman up? Why do Facebook represent friends that you don't know? Why do people blow on dice when they play dice games? Why did Sammy Sosa try to deny he used a bleaching cream to whiten himslef? Why did people care less that John Muhammad was executed? Why does it seem the Katt Williams burglary charge seem to be more to it than what was reported (espcially after the 911 call with the 17 year old boy calling saying Williams held him hostage)? Why did Prince ask for a million dollars to perform, at Tom Joyners' Cruise next year? Why was radio show host Charlie Tuna giving tips to men on how to cheat? Why did Rahsaan Patterson perform only three songs at the McCafe concert at Exo last Friday? And why did it seem Coco Soul looked more like the headliner when she opened up the show? And Why is Hollywood making a movie with Martin Lawrence as Shenene and Jamie Foxx as Ugly Wanda caleld "Skank Robbery?"
