Stuntin’ Like My Daddy: 50 Cent Buys 2 Year-Old Son A Baby Benz

If it’s good enough for 50 Cent, then it is most certainly good enough for his son. The rapper just hooked his offspring up with a matching Mercedes Benz…and he’s only two years-old.

Fiddy, who’s no stranger to flossing, decided to upgrade his baby boy by going all out for his 2nd birthday. Sire, who is Curtis Jackon’s (50’s legal name) youngest child, was gift a mini version of his dad’s Mercedes ML450 SUV. And of course, Sire took his rightful place on the throne and immediately started, “Flexing in the parking lot,” as Jackson put it.

Lil 50 celebrated his birthday with a big bash in Los Angeles on Monday and TMZ says Fiddy footed the entire bill. Insert cliché 50 Cent lyric: “Go shawty, It’s ya birthday…”

But Curtis isn’t the only one who has gifted their child with a copy-cat car. Kanye West dropped a pretty penny on this look-a-like Lamborghini for his daughter with Kim Kardashian, North West.

#JusticeForAvaLynn…The Story Behind The Pictures

When pictures of AvaLynn’s battered and bruised faced hit social media, there was an instant outrage and cry for justice. Immediately #JusticeForAvaLynn went viral with thousands of people posting her pictures and hashtag.

AvaLynn’s mother, Lacey Harris, explains that she was called to pick her daughter up from Arlington Elementary School in Pascagoula, Mississippi on August 26,2014 and was absolutely horrified by what she saw.

“AvaLynn informed Lacey that she was assaulted by another student: that she was kicked repeatedly in the face until she fell off of the slide on the school’s playground. The school informed Lacey were no teachers present when the incident occurred, and because of that, no one could prove whether or not another student had harmed Ava,” Harris recalled on the Justice For AvaLynn Facebook page.

Unfortunately, there are severely conflicting stories about how AvaLynn received the gruesome contusions to her face. The school maintains that the young girl’s injuries were self-inflicted.

“The school finally released a statement: AvaLynn was injured as the result of an accident, one that involved no other children. Although a police report was filed, Pascagoula Police Department states that they are not investigating the situation,” the Facebook post continues.

Upset by the school’s explanation, Lacey has made it her mission to get her daughter’s story out to the media so that AvaLynn can receive the justice she deserves. Harris has also created a GoFundMe page for those looking to donate to AvaLynn’s cause.

Fortunately, doctor’s say that AvaLynn’s injuries will not cause permanent physical damage, but the mental and emotional damage is immeasurable.

In the gallery below are the horrific pictures of AvaLynn’s swollen and bruised face. Disclaimer: These photos of AvaLynn’s injuries are extremely graphic.

The daughter of rapper The Game and Tiffney Cambridge had a big birthday bash to celebrate turning 4, but before the party even started daddy had a special message for his baby girl.

Happy 4th Birthday to Daddy’s Princess @littlemisscali !!!!!!!!!!! From the moment I laid eyes on you I knew that there would never be another love as strong as the love I had for you upon holding you for the 1st time in the hospital 4 years ago. I named Cali Dream because at that point in my life after accomplishing everything that I set out to, I was living exactly that…. A “California Dream”. I remember your mom fighting me over the name saying “I’m not naming my daughter no damn California Dream”…… Ummmm, well…… Guess we know who won that argument ! Cali, you’ve brought me nothing but joy, happiness & you’re every bit of the reason my smile is as BIG as it is every time I’m in your presence. Baby, you are MY EVERYTHING & I will spare no costs to make sure that today & this weekend are just as AMAZING as you are……. I LOVE YOU….. & that lasts for eternity – Daddy

These Kids Take Pharrell’s “Happy” To New Heights Using Sign Language!

Sure, lots of people have put their spin on Pharrell Williams’ infectious hit “Happy”, but none quite like this.

Kids from Deaf Film Camp at Camp Mark Seven (aka CM7) performed the song in sign language — and yes, it is awww-inducing. Just take a look…

Deaf Film Camp, which launched just last year, is designed for 13 – 16 year old aspiring filmmakers. According to the camp’s Facebook page, “for two weeks, campers will eat, drink, and breathe filmmaking in the fresh Adirondacks air of Old Forge, New York.” Plus, each camper will write, produce, direct, and edit his or her own film on digital video. What an amazing experience!

Mo’Ne Davis Leads Her Team To Little League World Series

Now the phrase “you throw like a girl” is a compliment and we can all thank Mo’Ne Davis for that!

With SIX strike-outs, the 13 year old pitching phenom lead the Taney Dragons of Philadelphia to the Little League World Series. Davis, known for her 70 mph fastball, is the only girl on her team, but doesn’t let that affect the way she plays ball — obviously!

Mo’Ne will become just the 17th girl to play in the Little League World Series since it started allowing girls to participate back in 1974. But ironically, basketball was her first choice. The impressive honor roll student admitted to ESPN that it took a while for her to fall in love with baseball.

Oh, and as if we don’t love her enough already, Mo’Ne’s walk out song is Beyonce’s “Who Runs The World (Girls)”!!! Kudos!

Lego Lets 7 Year Girl Old Call The Shots

Ask and ye shall receive!

If you haven’t learned this lesson, let 7 year-old Charlotte Benjamin help you out. After being frustrated with Lego and their lack of “lego girl people” that went on “adventures” and “had jobs”, little Charlotte wrote the company a poignant letter and demanded changes be made.

Dear Lego Company:

My name is Charlotte I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more lego boy people and barely any lego girls. today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the pink (girls) and the blue (boys). All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks. I want you to make more lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!

from Charlotte. Thank you.

Charlotte’s letter was dated January 25th and on August 1st the Lego Group released their “Research Institute Kit”, which includes an all-female team of a paleontologist, astronomer, and chemist. The powerful ladies, who are decked out in full hair and make-up, also have some pretty cool accessories and no we’re not talking killer shoes and gorgeous handbags. Each professional woman has exactly what she needs to get her job done: a skeleton of a dinosaur and a magnifying glass, a telescope and star chat, and beakers and a Bunsen burner (respectively). And while the timing seems to suggest Charlotte was the catalyst for this new kit, Lego denies that assumption. “The Research Institute set was proposed by geoscientist Ellen Kooijman and backed in a public vote on a Lego crowd sourcing website,” the toy company told the BBC.

We don’t care what Lego says, Charlotte Benjamin is a little hero and activist for the female community. We salute you, girl! The “Research Institute Kit”, which retails for $19.99, has already sold out, but we suspect that Lego will get more in stock soon…they don’t want any problems with young C!

Little Girl Sobs At The Thought Of Her Baby Brother Growing Up

What a sweet, sweet little girl!

When Sadie found out her little brother wouldn’t stay little forever her reaction was priceless. “I don’t want him to grow up,” she exclaimed while sobbing uncontrollably, “he’s so cute!”

Meanwhile, her baby bro thought it was quite humorous.

Check out the viral video below…it already has 19 million views!

I must admit, I understand where Sadie is coming from. I miss the days when my 14 month old daughter was just a itty bitty thing who needed me for everything. Now, she’s miss independent, opening cabinets and getting her own snacks. And while I miss the good ol’ days, I can assure you Sadie, things do get better with time. It’s true, you will sit back and reminisce about the sweet memories, but the new things that happen are great, too. Every milestone is something to celebrate, not be scared of. So yes, you will miss your brother being a baby, but you will love (and simultaneously hate) all the new things to come. Dry your eyes, sweet Sadie! xo
