About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

A LESSON FOR THE CRYING
A lot of black women are in an uproar over black, famous rich men dating women who are not black. From splashy magazine covers (Essence) to popular reality shows ('Kendra'), biracial dating seems to be more than just a trend. There's a new book called 'Don't Bring Home a White Boy' hitting shelves soon, where attorney and writer Yolanda Young urges black women to take some tips from Kim and Khloe Kardashian and date outside of their race. As many know, the two half-Armenian TV personalities have nailed down two successful and wealthy black athletes: New Orleans Saints Superbowl winner Reggie Bush and Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom, respectively. Young says that instead of hating, people should look at how the Kardashian sisters have "advanced the careers of their boyfriends." She suggests that black women should focus their attention on "those who appreciate it," whether black or otherwise. Interesting... [Huffington Post]

FILLING UP ON MILK
Jennifer Hudson recently shot a Got Milk? ad. The Oscar and Grammy winner's new ad reads: "Center stage, silver screen, joyful new mom. How do I keep this show on the road? Milk. Its wholesome goodness helps make my family strong at every stage. Talk about a powerful performance." The Chicago native is psyched that her new ad hits magazines during Black History Month. "I feel like if I'm going to lead somebody in the right direction it might be in the right direction of health with milk, right?," she said. Maybe she should get her fiance David Otunga to have some milk, too. He's bulked up for his WWF debut. It's sure to help him with a long future in wrestling. [StyleList.com]

WHOA T.O.

One of the sexiest men in the NFL seems to be crying out for more attention. Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens already stripped down to his birthday suit to launch his VH1 reality show last year. Now, he seems to be getting all gussied up for the fashion scene.

On Feb. 17, the Alabama born stud hit the runway during New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Looking like a cross between Eddie Murphy as James Brown (on vintage 'Saturday Night Live') and Ben Stiller as 'Zoolander' – the world's first white male supermodel, Owens strutted his stuff at the A*Muse Fashion Show at Amnesia NYC.

ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL
Chris Brown is on the right track, according to his Richmond, Va., judge. The pop star reported back to court to discuss how much community service he's completed so far.

Right now, the 'Crawl' singer has done 32 of the mandated 180 days of work, as well as attended a majority of his domestic violence classes. Judge Schnegg said, "Looks like you're doing really, really, well," before approving Brown's plans to travel abroad. Go Chris. [YBF]

WILD CHILD

He's been to hell and back. And 'Diff'rent Stokes' star Gary Coleman seems to still be dancing with the devil. In one of the wildest viral videos that ever circulated on the web, the pint-sized former child star took no tea for the fever when he appeared on the TV show, 'The Insider,' last week.

Watch what happens when Coleman talks for the first time about his now infamous mug shot. He discusses his recent time in jail and answers the question of what led him there. The panel asks "WHAT HAPPENED GARY??" And boy oh boy did he have some choice words for them.
