As if the world wasn’t already violent and crazy enough, things got much worse as two NYPD cops were killed, execution style, while they were sitting in a marked police cruiser during an anti-terrorism drill in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
The suspected gunman apparently gave warning of his plot to put “wings on pigs” via an Instagram post, pictured below. Once police cornered the shooter, he turned the gun on himself and was eventually pronounced dead.
The shootings were alleged revenge for the deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.
Hopefully, people can find peace and end the violence. Killing cops is not the way to fight for a cause.

Everyone was looking forward to the Christmas release of Sony’s new movie, The Interview, featuring Seth Rogen and James Franco. The movie received criticism for its daring plot that focuses on assassinating North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un.
There was a recent hack into Sony’s database that allegedly brought attention to email threats they were receiving because of the upcoming controversial release.
Major theaters, such as AMC, Regal, Cinemark and Cineplex have all dropped the movie from their line-up due to the security threats.
For those neo-soul lovers out there, this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. We’ve patiently waited for the sexy How Does It Feel? singer to grace us with his presence just one more time and it finally happened. D’Angelo surprised his fans, and the world, with his new project, Black Messiah.
After 15 years, I’m sure he won’t leave anyone disapponted. It’s great to just see him back on his feet and doing what we all love to see him do best.
Be sure to let the Dreamworld know what you think of Black Messiah! If you haven’t downloaded the new album yet, visit iTunes or Spotify for your copy.
It’s truly sad when young, positive people live short lives. DC’s, Algernon “AJ” Cooper passed away suddenly on December 3rd and was laid to rest yesterday. AJ was the former co-host of BET’s Teen Summit and often held youth issues in the forefront of his goals.
He recently put his bid in for Ward 4 DC Council and had much of the support from locals. Cooper passed away from an apparent heart attack last week, after complaining of chest pains. He was only 34.

In a recent photo shoot for Du Jour, shot by Brian Bowen Smith, Kourtney Kardashian bared all. Her sister, Kim, has been receiving some heavy criticism for her nude shoot for Paper Magazine. It seems as though some may be more accepting of the artful shoot provided by Du Jour, but you should judge for yourself. I personally think the photos are gorgeous! Take a look!
The news of Diem Brown passing away at such a young age is horribly sad. For those who aren’t familiar, Diem was a regular cast member on MTV’s Challenge series. She revealed on the show years ago that she was battling cancer and was very open about sharing her struggle with the world. Viewers had the honor of witnessing Diem removing her wig for the world to see her balding head.
Diem was in amazing shape, fought hard and was very passionate, especially when it came to her true love, CT, also a cast member. She was diagnosed with cancer once again after collapsing during the taping of the latest Challenge installment. Within months, she lost the real battle. Last night, family rushed to her bedside and prayed with her as she took her last breathe.
I pray she passed with peace and is now free of pain.
