• First there was “The Princess Boy,” now a viral video of a little Asian boy in drag has surfaced. The child is dressed to the nines in fishnets, top hat, flapper dress, and is serving up his best Christina Aguilera impression from the film “Burlesque.” Some are freaking out about this little boy’s performance, but I see a kid who loves the stage. Maybe he’ll become the Asian Tyler Perry (Hmm. Let’s hope not). [World Star Hip-Hop]
  • The Middle East is on the cusp of revolution. From Tunisia to Egypt to Libya to Yemen, and now Iran. Young people are taking to the streets upset with their government, lack of employment, and ready for real change. What’s fueling the protests? Cell phones. Social Media—Facebook, Twitter, and other outlets—have helped protestors organize. If only young people, especially young African-Americans, could organize like our Mid East brothers and sisters. Imagine what real change we could influence. [NY Times]
  • Fresh off his Grammy win, singer Bruno Mars plead guilty yesterday to cocaine possession in Los Angeles. Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, was sentenced to probation, a $2000 fine, 200 hours of community service and eight hours with a drug counselor. Let’s hope he’s learned from his mistake and is able to move on (no Charlie Sheen breakdown necessary!) [Pop Eater]
  • Rapper Waka Flocka Flame just can’t seem to stay away from bullets. Yesterday, a shout-out erupted outside of his tour bus in Charlotte, North Carolina. According to TMZ, men in two cars fired at least four shots at Waka Flocka’s tour bus. His security team leapt into action, returning fire, and hitting one of the cars. Waka Flocka and his crew were detained by police for questioning, but later let go. No charges have been filed and the assailants have yet to be indentified. Last year Waka Flocka was shot in the arm after a scuffle at an Atlanta car wash. Somebody get this man some Teflon, quick! [MTV News]
  • Just when you thought Miley Cyrus was beating the child star gone bad odds, her dad, Billy Ray, chimes in and says he wishes she never became a star. In a recent interview with GQ, Billy Ray says that “Hannah Montana” ruined his family. Although Billy Ray blames Miley’s “handlers” for her swift descent to the dark side (read: smoking herb, partying, embracing a super sexy image), the fact that he’s been present for her rise to the top makes me give him the side-eye. How can you blame others for your child’s bad decisions when you were holding her hand the entire time? Let’s hope Billy Ray speaks to Miley privately and doesn’t try to parent her through the media. After all, we see how well that worked out for Lindsay Lohan’s dad. [Hollywood Reporter]

    I think it’s wrong that this little boy is in sexy drag. He’s 9! I would be upset if a little girl were dressed like this. It’s obvious he didn’t do this himself, that make up job is impeccable. ugh.
