Jay Z has been a trendsetter his whole career. Anything he embarks upon in the entertainment world becomes the new "it" way to do things, and he's always thinking outside of any box someone else tries to create. Jay Z is always forcing us to re-evaluate things. He makes the tough decision to stand out, and even be criticized in an effort to push the hip hop culture forward.
Today, Jay Z turns 44yrs old! I'm sure the world is standing by to see what the man who seems to have the most incredible life will get for his birthday.He told us yesterday via his personal site that his gift to himself is a healthier life- he and his wife Beyonce are going vegan for 22 days. According to Jay it's somewhat of a "spiritual cleanse".
This is just one way Jay Z has motivated and inspired people to change the way they live- for the better. For fans, it couldve been a rhyme or something he said in an interview, but it goes far beyond that for a lot of people. Today, we're taking a look at a few other ways Jay has enhanced the culture, the rap game, and for some of us- our lives overall. Check that out when you read on + Jay's new remix to Tom Ford ft. Pimp C!

Kenyan journalists and civil rights activists are against monetary fines that lawmakers are trying to push through to stifle criticism, according to the Associated Press.
About 300 people marched to parliament and the president's office today, saying journalists are being pressured with monetary fines. David Ohito, vice chair of the Kenya Editors Guild, told the AP that journalists want changes to the Kenya Information and Communication Amendment bill. The bill states that the government can fine journalists up to $5,500 and media companies around $230,000 if the tribunal finds them guilty of breaching a code of conduct that stipulates the need for accuracy, fairness, independence and integrity, Ohito said.

As promised, Justin Bieber dropped his latest visual- a video for his single, All That Matters tonight. The song and visual are both very much the same matured Justin Bieber we've been getting lately from his music. He's growing up right before our eyes.
The video shows Bieber serenading and being all lovey dovey with his leading lady. The Beliebers are going to hunt this girl down in 5..lol. Check the video after the break.
Labels: Justin Bieber

As I sit here and type this, I am in shock upon hearing that Paul Walker's death has been confirmed. No I did not know the man personally, but yes I am feeling some kind of way (along with other folks). While I see on my timeline tweets about how fine he was, that 2Fast 2Furious won't be the same, there are folks who are shaking their heads at them. I can understand why that is: he has a real life family that has to cope with his loss, he is more than the character's he has played, and he certainly is more than just a fine face. While I can understand the shaking of heads, it needs to be understood that everyone has the right to feel whatever they feel about a person's death.

Glee's Amber Riley is a star on the show for her incredible voice! Turns out singing isn't the only thing the girl can do and do well. Amber entered into this season's Dancing With the Stars not too sure of what she could do herself, but she ended up beating out finalists Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne for the title.
"I did this competition because, I didn't know if I could do it and anything that scares me I wanna do, so I want to let women of all sizes out there know you can do whatever you put your mind to. It doesn't matter what size you are, what color you are, you can do whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to!"
Amber was so gorgeous last night and you could literally see the happiness and excitement on her face. She and her partner Derek Hough received a perfect score on their final dance together! I wonder what else Amber will prove to be great at! Go Amber!
