Beyoncé & Amber Rose Come Face-To-Face, Lakers Player Reacts To Tony Parker’s Retirement, $50K In Trayvon Martin’s Memory?

Labor Day Monday. There’s no other way to put it than today is the day to kick your feet up and enjoy a stress-free Monday. So why not start things off with Beyoncé and Amber Rose getting close and personal? Speaking of opposites attracting, a certain Los Angeles Lakers player had something to say about San Antonio Spurs star point guard Tony Parker hanging up the microphone for good. One good thing happening is $50,000 going up for grabs in the memory of Trayvon Martin. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. It Had To Happen

At this point, you have to wonder if Amber Rose and Beyoncé ever met face-to-face considering Jay Z and Kanye West‘s relationship and how Kanye and Amber were a couple for a strong two or three years. Well, with Wiz Khalifa as not only her husband but son’s father, she and Beyoncé probably had a lot to talk about at this past weekend’s Made In America festival. Bossip has the shots:

This past weekend, much of the music industry and thousands of their fans flocked to Philly for the 2nd Annual Budweiser Made In America Festival.

Headlining day 1 of this year’s eclectic line up of acts for the festival, which is the brainchild of Roc Nation bossman Jay Z, was none other than his bobbin’ and weavin’ wifey Beyonce.

In addition to gracing the stage for a powerhouse performance on day 1, Beysus was also spotted enjoying day 2 of the festivities with hubby Hov by her side and the cameras even caught her laughing it up with fellow blonde mommy-banger Amber Rose who was on hand to support her new hubby Wiz Khalifa’s peformance.

Amber did have a short run with her music career. Is there any chance Bey broke off some knowledge on Amber so she could get her vocal skilsl a bit more fine-tuned? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Run That Beat Back

No one seems too upset about Tony Parker retiring from the music industry, especially a Los Angeles Lakers player named Nick Young. If there were ever a time to focus on basketball and leave the music behind, it’s now, consider the Spurs came so close to winning another title. TMZ has the footage:

Dear Tony Parker’s rap career …

You were only 6 years old … but Tony has decided to put you out of your misery.

You were cheesy … you were part French … and you were terrible.

You also inspired YouTube comments like, “Tony, what the f*ck is this?” and “Bad bad bad.”

Maybe it’s a good thing Tony decided to pull the plug … at least according to L.A. Lakers player Nick Young … because, as we said before, you were really, really bad.

But we’re not too sad, ’cause as long as YouTube exists, you’ll never really die.

Au revoir for now …

Is the trend of basketball players wanting to be musicians fading away? It wasn’t too long ago where everyone had dreams of rapping and dropping new albums in-betwee the basketball seasons. Is Tony the last of them? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Something Good

It’s not always positivity when you bring up the name “Trayvon Martin” especially in light of George Zimmerman being acquitted of murdering the teenager last year. But there is something to smile about as a $50,000 scholarship plan has been created in his memory. The Huffington Post is on it:

An Orlando auto group, law firm and black fraternity are among those offering $50,000 as a scholarship to four graduating seniors from Trayvon Martin’s high school in Dade County.

The donors, including the Boyland Auto Group and Invictus Law Group, are to present the money to the Trayvon Martin Foundation and his parents tomorrow in Isleworth.

The donors also include Delta Xi Lambda, a black fraternity based in Orlando, and Boyz-4-Lyfe, a group of long-time friends.

The money goes to the foundation, which will divide it between four 2014 graduating seniors of Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in Miami, where Trayvon was enrolled at the time of his death, according to a news release announcing the gift.

Its purpose is to help minority teenagers, donors wrote.

“We are doing what we can to make the world a better place by not being divisive but by uplifting our community through educational opportunities for kids who otherwise would not have the same opportunity,” the donors said in their announcement.

Trayvon, an unarmed black 17-year-old, was killed Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford by George Zimmerman, a light-skinned Neighborhood Watch volunteer who had earlier called police, describing the Miami Gardens teenager as suspicious.

A six-member Seminole County jury acquitted Zimmerman last month of second-degree murder.

Trayvon’s parents established the Trayvon Martin Foundation, a non-profit, last year as a way to provide support to the victims of violent crimes, according to its website. (Huffington Post)

Hopefully justice will happen in the slaying of Trayvon Martin, but in the meantime positive stories like this should help keep his memory alive. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

    …so everybody going to just ignore that shit on amber’s forehead?

    • TruthBTold

      Its hilarity King… upside down cross is how St. Peter was crucified. He requested it because he said he was unworthy to be crucified as Jesus Christ was… so anyone rocking an upside down cross is donning the original message of it saying they are inferior to die the way Jesus did… LOL God is soo cool and fools become even bigger fools by trying to mock him, or rock anti-God symbols as fashion.. hilarity at its finest. YOU CANT LIVE ON EARTH FOREVER… Dumb Dumb’s

      • Kreole

        You can support your religion without calling people “dumb dumbs”. Faith is not rooted in logic, so believing or not believing in the principles of christianity has really nothing to do with intelligence.

        • TruthBTold

          I wasn’t really going into my religious stances.. Just stating what happened and the foolery of people who try to be satanic(created) against GOD(creator) and how they are fools because the inadvertently make themselves look even more foolish. I’m not really concerned with luciferians because its a game of creator vs creates for those who believe… I just think it’s funny and yea it is logic fool because anyone with a brain who makes claims about their belief or not can find out the information before they talk or express themselves and very little do on both sides but especially those who don’t believe… I’ve studied the main religions vigorously too by the way…

        • GoldenRimz

          This has everything to do with intelligence.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/hodgetwins/videos?view=0 King Ding-A-Ling

        Idk about all of that, all I’m saying is there was no mention if it.

      • J.Erick

        Now while you sit yo Joe Clair looking ass over there saying all of that, ANYBODY can clearly see that she’s not rocking the inverted cross as a representation on St. Peter’s crucifixion. These people wanna be satanic so bad that it’s funny. They think its going to take them to the next level. While they might be right, it’s clearly what they’re doing. Tyler the Creature anyone?

        • TruthBTold

          Looks like an upside down cross to me.. If its not then whatever.. If it is that is the dumbest thing ever… From the comments I think I may need to explain why being on Satans side is not smart… If you don’t believe in GOD then you die and everything is black and there’s nothingness.. Cool good for you if you believe in GOD but not Jesus you are very confused or def unsure about the afterlife and how to get into heaven.. If you believe on God then you prob believe satan exists assuming you believe in the Judeo Christian GOD satan is not the funniest being to be around… Jesus is much nicer than satan in the afterlife… Should I go on about how running with satan is foolish…? Do I need to explain further why satanists are dumb dumbs??? Satan doesnt have a good history with mankind IF you belive… JESUS DOES…. duh IF YOU BELIVE ILL SAY IT AGAIN IF YOU BELIEVE.. I don’t want to be lynched by mon believers.. If you don’t believe in GoD.. Fine ill let you explain to me how life came to be from something that wasn’t alive… In the beginning… Someday

        • GoldenRimz

          You’re talking like they HAVE to be satanists, and why? Because Alex Jones said it? Because a bunch of nerds made YouTube videos? This “truth” movement is stupid. What TruthBTold said has just as much validity as anything a bunch of losers are gathering behind because they need an excuse to explain why they don’t have pockets like Diddy or Jay.

          • TruthBTold

            Once again, stupidity is reigning supreme in someones dome piece… Who said they HAVE to be satanists… I NEVER said that… Satanists exists… so Im addressing them… I never said Amber or Beyonce or Jay-z or Kanye or anyone was a satanist… DO YOU GET THAT FACT IN YOUR BRAIN YET?! another thing… who said anything about Alex Jones?!?!?! you are jumping to self-concussive conclusions… trying to spin me out like FOX NEWS>.. go sit down son… READ WHAT I WROTE IN BLACK AND WHITE… I am successful and well off… I DONT’ want money like Diddy and Jay at ALL… I seek a regular life and the ability to retire early without having to worry about $$$… being rich isn’t everything… maybe you or materialistic people believe so but you cant cash them checks up in the cemetery… LOL good luck simpleton.. Goldenrims whatever!

          • GoldenRimz

            I was co-signing your comment. I was saying that your explanation for the cross is just as valid as what people like Alex Jones and all of these random YouTube vids are saying. People think that every time they see a symbol potentially associated with Satanism that it’s an automatic connection because they’ve continuously had it drilled in their heads that that shit is true. I’m saying that your explanation of it being St. Peters’ cross is just as plausible as all of the stupid satanist bullshit going around, and that what you’re saying shouldn’t be discounted because you aren’t hopping on the bandwagon..

          • TruthBTold

            my bad i misread your sarcasm

  • 5789007

    What the fuck that dumb bitch tat on her head? I’m waiting for hip hop to turn into demon night niggas gettin real disrespectful.

  • ThaRealHater
