Fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted on vacation in Saint-Tropez (which is normal...for her) but the shots of her smoking cigs and going topless in front of her kids might make you scratch you head.  See the NSFW pics inside....

Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted on vacation with her family and friends in Saint-Tropez over the weekend.  She tweeted an adorable pic of her kids and captioned, "Ain't nobody messin wit my click..!! #mediterranean".

If you know Kimora's back story, you'll recall that she was the face of Chanel at a very young age.  So she's ALWAYS been "international."

But her "European" behavior aboard her yacht might have some folks scratching their heads.   Seriously....going topless in front of your son isn't very "cookie-cutter" American....but neither is Kimora.

The rest of Kimora's clique also got an eyefull of her perky bosoms and phenomenal body.

And she was also seen puffing on a few cigarettes!  At least she stepped away from the kids to get her smoke on.

Beyonce was joined by her mother, Tina Knowles, as they walked alongside over 2,000 protestors in Lower Manhattan.  And it's clear that the Trayvon Martin verdict has touched the hearts of the entire Knowles family.  A few day agoSolange Knowles participated in a rally at Borough Hall in Brooklyn.

The couple posed with Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton and Rev. Al Sharpton and landed on the cover of the NY Daily News.

Rev. Sharpton remarked about the couple's appearance at the rally saying,

"Jay-Z and Beyonce said they didn't want to speak and they didn't come for a photo op. Jay-Z told me, 'I'm a father. Beyoncé is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension – the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody ... We do not come from hate, we come from love of children."

The ‘Justice for Trayvon Martin’ protest began with a press conference at Rev. Sharpton's NAN offices where Sybrina told the crowd;

“George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight.  My son died without even knowing who his killer was ... Today it was my son. Tomorrow it might be yours.”

As for how she felt about the verdict, Sybrina said, “We have moved on from the verdict. Of course, we’re hurting. Of course we’re shocked and disappointed. But that just means we have to roll up our sleeves and fight.”


The NYC protest was one of several that took place around the nation.  In Chicago.....

Rapper MC Lyte (who posed with Rev. Jesse Jackson) spoke to over 500 people rallied across from the Everett McKinley Dirksen federal courthouse. She shared, "When the verdict was read, I felt like we lost Trayvon Martin all over again.

And in San Diego,

Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson addressed the racially charged case at Comic-Con in San Diego.  Though he was there to promote his role as the villain Electro in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Jaime also offered support to Trayvon's mom, Sybrina.

“She’s always been courageous in saying this has never been about race. She said it’s about 17-year-old kids. We have to protect our kids. So I stand with her forever."

He also commented on gun violence in America saying,

“When you look at Sandy Hook and Aurora and all these different things where we’re losing our children. Chicago — 67 kids, people killed in a week — we have an epidemic. And it’s up to us as the grown folks to be smart enough and intelligent and nice to each other to have a difference of opinion, but also understand that we have to come to a solution.”

And when Samuel Jackson was asked about the rallies being held in Trayvon's honor in dozens of US cities, he said, he was "encouraged by the attitude of people after the verdict, that people are willing to stand up and take a stand and get out in the streets, and let their voices be heard.”

Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day.

Rapper Loon, who rose to fame with Diddy as part of the Bad Boy family, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison on drug related charges.  Now, Loon is speaking out to fans and attempting to tell his side of the story. In a message, he says,

“In 2008, some individuals had crossed my path who were interested at one point about the music business These individuals called me about something that was totally away from the life I was living. The fact that I responded to these individuals placed me under the umbrella of conspiracy.”

Loon, who now goes by Amir Muhadith says he was falsely fingered him as the ring leader “Because of the way the United States government works, they used the information of the informant and put together an elaborate story to make it look like I had a leadership role.”

Here's his side of the story:
