• Kanye may have kept quiet during New York Fashion Week, but apparently his newfound silence doesn’t extend to the Twitterverse. In a recent tweet, Kanye just had to weigh on the abortion debate…from the baller’s perspective, of course. He complained, “an abortion can cose a ballin’ nigga up to 50s maybe a 100. Gold diggin’ bitches be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my niggas!” Somebody get this man a therapist, QUICK! [Jezebel]
  • Muammar Quaddafi refuses to step down. According to several reports, the Libyan dictator is fighting back in several cities around the Tripoli as protesters close in on the capital. It is said that protesters have already taken control of the eastern part of the country, and they are coming for Quaddafi, who isn’t going down without a fight. The dictator has reportedly hired mercenaries from other African nations to kill antigovernment protesters and has fired on many of its own people. Despite being under attack, Libyans are not giving up their fight for freedom. One resident said, “We are not afraid; we are watching…change is coming.” [The NY Times]
  • Bad parenting or tough love? A NYC Couple is facing charges after they tried to leave their unruly 6-year-old daughter at a Staten Island police station. Tired of their “uncontrollable” daughter, the parents—Annette Gerhardt and Gerardo Santiago—decided to take her daughter to the police station to scare her. The couple was charged with misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child, but say they had no intention of actually abandoning their daughter. I guess they wanted to practice their own brand of “Scared Straight,” before their kid got too out of control. [The Washington Post]
  • The list of rapper getting dumb face tats has just expanded. Apparently Yung LA, T.I.’s former protégé, tatted an angry duct-tape-welding pink duck on his face.  Why? Who the hell knows, but he tried to explain: “That tattoo just comes from something in the city. My cousins grew up with a lot of people from Zone 6, I know a lot of people from Zone 6, and the people from Zone 6, there whole movement is called Duct Tape and I just had been really getting up with these guys.” I still have NO idea how being from different parts of Atlanta translates to inking a duck on your face, but hey…to each his own.
