"Drake" Does Michael Jackson

i ♥ degrassi. new season starts Friday, July 3 @ 7p, only on The N!

Pee Jay -- the author.

You may know Paul S. Morton, Jr. aka PJ Morton, as a musical prodigy, but soon, you'll get to know Pee Jay [as I like to call him] on a different level -- as a writer. He will be releasing his debut book entitled, Why Can't I Talk About Love? The Truth About the "Church" Against "Secular" Music.

Growing up as the son of Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., PJ was always expected to follow his father's footsteps and use his gift to sing gospel music. But, since he chose a different path, he's had to deal with being judged, questioned and ridiculed about his choice to do what he loves to do -- sing soulful pop.

For more info on the book's release date, the foreword by Bishop, book reviews from Kirk Franklin, Al Green, Lil Mo and more, and to hear the song, "Why Can't I Sing About Love," click on the pic below:

stamped: michael jackson dies

michael jackson dead at 50 after suffering a heart attack. rest in peace, king.

omg, i dont even know where to start off. this is a man that ive known of since i could understand what music was. this is unreal, cant be true. michael?? like, EV-ER-Y-ONE knows michael! no matter how old you are, you know an MJ song. i remember sitting in front of the tv, crying because i wanted to marry this man; getting mad and plotting on iman's death because she kissed MY boo in his "remember the time" video. omg, and dont talk about "black or white," "you are not alone," and "will you be there..." pssh! i loved him. i cant take much more of this. yeah, we know that death is to come, but when it happens this way, like blind sights you? how can you react? first my g-ma, then ed, then farrah [THIS MORNING!!], and now michael. this is the end as we know it. the world is NOT understanding what's going on right now. there are hundreds of people outside of UCLA medical center and his home as im typing. his funeral? pssh. the crowd is going to be as big as obama's inauguration -- real talk.

everyone is affected. love and live life, guys. tomorrow is NOT promised. beefing is not worth it. give a hug.

my prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.

michael jackson rushed to hospital.

michael jackson, THE king of pop, was rushed to a los angeles hospital this afternoon. his father confirmed that he suffered a heart attack.

i dont think i can take any more tragic news. mike is definitely in my prayers. keep him in yours, too.

UPDATE: michael jackson is in a coma.

a real life angel.

BREAKING NEWS: farrah fawcett has died of cancer this morning at a los angeles hospital. she was 62. just recently, she finally accepted the marriage proposal from her longtime companion, ryan o'neal. the two had been dating on and off since the 80s.

i hate, hate, HATE to announce this! farrah was charlie's [and my] ultimate angel and most definitely a "betty." but, she had been battling with anal cancer for a long time, for like 2 years...at least she isnt in anymore pain.

unknown fact: i love andy warhol

and here's my fave quote from him:

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca Cola, too. A coke is a coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.

quote via Warhol, Andy (1975). The philosophy of Andy Warhol: from A to B and back again. San Diego: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. ISBN 0-15-189050-1. OCLC 1121125.

dont know much about andy? click on the pic below and get familiar with him and his foundation:
