Hard to believe she's been gone 10 years....
It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since the passing of R&B songstress Aaliyah.I can still remember where I was when I heard the bad news. Initially, I thought it was a bad rumor going around, but after seeeing news reports later that evening, I knew what many others had discovered; the princess of R&B was gone. She seemed to be on the verge of becoming a breakout actress in addition of becoming one of the top females in R&B. She has left more of a legacy in the decade following her untimely passing than most singers will ever leave. R.I.P. Aaliyah, you are still missed. Click out one of my favorite Aaliyah videos below.

Action star Bruce Willis may be the next big name to join the cast of G.I. Joe 2:Retailiation. Willis, the star of the Die Action franchise, is in talks to play the original Joe, General Joe Colton. If Willis does indeed agree to star in the sequel, he would be joining stars Channing Tatum, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the RZA, among others. I think the addition of Willis would greatly legitimize the chances of the sequel becoming a hit. Do you agree? Click the pic to enlarge.

Apparently, imitation isn’t the sincerest form of flattery for some people. Popular reality star Kim Kardashian has a bone to pick with clothing retail giant Old Navy and according to sources, she is seeking $15-$20 million for using a “look-alike’ model, Melissa Molinaro, in ads. Kardashian contends that Old Navy is intentionally using a look alike to “mislead the public into thinking she is the endorser”, not Molinaro. Click the pic to enlarge.
Kim Kardashian wants $15-$20 million from Old Navy for "misleading the public" for using a "look-alike" model in ads
I do see a strong resemblance to Kardashian in the ad, but I think its simply great marketing on the behalf of Old Navy and I don’t see Kim winning this battle. What do you think? If you haven’t seen the new ad in question, click here. [SOURCE]
