A recent Cosby audience love fest was not simply an aberration of groupie fan mania. Legions passionately believe Cosby is being wrongly crucified on the cross of raw public opinion by a pack of greedy, publicity-seeking, career-wrecking liars and schemers.
As a kid, Austin Netzley remembered being enthralled with the concept of money and promising himself that one day he'd be wealthy. And now, at 28, by most people's measure, he is. He's been an athlete, student, engineer and entrepreneur. And at this point in his life, he considers himself "retired."
If Styles ends up being straight, the implications of his recent statements would be practically revolutionary. At his age, following the "bro" code typically means acting as straight and narrow as possible. How many straight guys are comfortable with being mistaken for gay or bisexual?

Our daughters will learn from us how to value themselves. Whether we like it or not, we are responsible for what they are exposed to and what they hold up as values while they are young.
TS Madison has become really popular over the past year. She is a YouTube sensation who recently got her own show on YouTube via World of Wonder. Madison just dropped her first album, so I thought it would be a perfect time for her to be asked "15 Questions."
The human mind doesn't always work in our best interests when it comes to spending decisions. But the good news is that scientists are trying to tackle the problem -- and uncover how we can retrain our brains to make better choices.
Whether or not Darren Wilson is indicted for his behavior in those 90 seconds, American society as a whole bears indictment for those four hours and thirty-two minutes. That level of disregard for black life cannot be attributed to the actions of one police officer.
The focus of our strategy should not be on what we do or do not do with our military. The principal focus of our "fight" should be on getting the countries in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Bahrain, etc., to make the defeat of ISIS their responsibility.
My heart belongs to the ladies on 14th Street who stood with me night after night, trying to survive and just be their authentic selves. I cry today for those ladies who are no longer here with us in 2014, but my heart remembers them.
As we honor our friends and family we have lost to anti-transgender violence on Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), how can we ensure that transgender women of color are leading the LGBTQ anti-violence movement?

As previously reported, film producer Will Packer is in the thick of bringing Steve Harvey's best-selling relationship book 'Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man' to the big screen.
With Packer heading up executive producing duties, alongside Harvey, Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy, it was announced today that Taraji Henson, Kevin Hart and Michael Ealy have been tapped to star, according to Variety.
Directed by Tim Story, 'Think Like a Man' follows the relationship between an aspiring chef, played by Ealy, and a high-powered advertising executive, played by Henson. While Hart is set to portray a soon-to-be-divorced, self-professed relationship expert who doles out advice to the couple.
Harvey's book, which was published in 2009 and offers up his experiences about the dos and don'ts of meeting and mating, has sold over 2 million copies worldwide making the 'Original King of Comedy' as a New York Times Best Seller.
"It's pretty amazing," Harvey told us about the book's meteoric success back in February 2009. "It really has to be some amount of favor from God, because I have no experience at writing a book," he continued. "It ain't like I've been there, done that. It's got to be favor from God. It's gotta be something that he has planned for me bigger than I could see, because I just wanted to write a book so the women on my show could quit asking me to write a book."
Production for 'Think Like a Man' is tentatively scheduled to begin this summer.
