Jay-Z, Kanye West & Ryan Leslie Make Surprise Sweet Sixteen Visit + Tracy Morgan Apologizes Again

Kanye West, Ryan Leslie, Diggy Simmons and Jay-Z were among the celebrity guests who dropped in on the sweet sixteen birthday party of Leslie Taylor (daughter of Jay-Z’s business associate Chaka Pilgrim), and her friend Skakora Conley

See the pics of the hip-hop stars making the sweet 16 party fab inside and find out the deets on Tracy Morgan apologizing to victims of bullys and meeting gay teens.

 

Lucky ladies Leslie Taylor and Skakora Conley hosted a Black Swan-themed birthday party at the Carlton Hotel over the weekend.  And they had hip-hop allstars Kanye West and Jay-Z there.

The party was organized by the Purple Agency and featured stilt walkers, human mannequins covered in feathers, and ballerinas dressed in black who danced to Kanye’s “Runaway.”

 

During the party, Kayne and Jay-Z got on the mic while Ryan Leslie sang “Happy Birthday” to the girls.  

And Diggy Simmons presented the “Royal 16 Court” at the party. 

During the party Jay-Z posed with mom Chaka while giving a shout-out to her daughter.  Sweet!

 

Also in the news.....

Now that he is feeling the backlash from every angle, Tracy Morgan has quickly changed his tune. In addition to apologizing for his comments, the comedian is trying to make amends.   He will soon be meeting with gay youth in NYC who have been victims of bullys, homeless gay teens, and he will be traveling back to Nashville, TN to apologize to people who were offended by his act.  In an interview with E! online, he said:

"I know how bad bullying can hurt," Morgan said. "I was bullied when I was a kid. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987.... Parents should support and love their kids no matter what. Gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that."

I was in this sweetsixteen.

I was in this sweetsixteen. YBF YOU SHOULD D . We do not go to a big fancy school like you see on MTV and her mother gave us an experience we will never forget . She treated each of us lie queens and kings .When most parents only care about their kids. she paid for everything for us > made sure we got to all the rehearsals and i live all the way in east new york. She gave us look into the life we wish we could have and told us it is all possible. Non of us wanted to wear gown and tuxedos but we were transformed into royalty that night > it was more than a party and meeting the artist was great,but the meetings the mentoring and the preparation that went into it is what made it special, i just wish the world could see that nights like this dont just happen to rich brats. shoutout to the best court ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was at the comedy show with

I was at the comedy show with Tracy, the audience was full of whites who evidently thought they were getting the tracy they see on TV.. He came out with a disclaimer of " i am not the guy on tv, i dont know who he is he is a character. you are at my show and you are about to get TRACY MORGAN!!!" They have put this man on a pedestal and bc he was the comedian he is they are now upset .. the show was funny he talked about everyone and everything. He was on a white couple all night that couple laughed and shook his hand at the end with no problem actually the white lady kept him going half the night by going back and forth with him but it was all in fun. He talked about, black, mexican, whites, project ppl, hood rats, everything but the only ones that got offended and cried out about it was the Gays, who want gay right and the freedom to do what they want, to be seen and to have equal rights like everyone else..... well Tracy gave you the same rights as everyone else, he talked about GAYS like he did everyone else. It was a JOKE, it is said and done and you didnt raise a fuss over him using the N-word, or talking about anyone else, so are gays the only ones that should complain or are gays the only ones that wear the feelings on their sleeves, or are very sensitive or maybe they are the only ones that didnt realize it is comedy and that cant take a joke!!! It was really comedy when he talked about blacks, mexican and N******, they laughed long and loud but it was quiet when he mentioned gays.. I was there I saw and heard the entire show.. I laughed at, it all and yes I am black but was not offended when he talked about blacks, wonder if i were gay if i would have been offended ??? probably not bc I would have remembered i was at a comedy show.. Word to the wise research your comedian before you pay for his tickets.. he is not the guy you see on TV!!!!!

And we wonder why black

And we wonder why black people are in the pitiful state we are in. We are always worried about the most fruitless things. How someone looks and how someone dresses is the least of our worries as black people. And as long as we stay stuck on these things other races will continue to be ahead of us. It's truly sad. We are most critical of each other. Other races don't have to hate on us because we hate ourselves enough. Get some substance people and use it to build up our race instead of tearing each other down. Crabs in the barrel mentality having asses!!! Geesh!!!

I hope Tracy can make amends

I hope Tracy can make amends because that was foul. I will never forgive him but Dog the Bounty Hunter somehow made amends for his comments about black people and he still has his show. I hope for Tracy's sake people will be as forgiving with him.

Looks like fun. Happy bday. I don't think that the girls are pretty and skin color has nothing to do with it. Its rude the way some people have stated it but it is the truth. I think that some people lie b/c they r of darker complexion. Pretty is pretty regardless of complexion and they r not pretty but they r not ugly.

I don't understand why

I don't understand why perverted ass "heterosexual" people think about the sexual aspects of homosexuality FIRST and foremost when you bash gay people. It's like the first thing "Straight" gay bashers wanna talk about is a dick in somebody's ass. Is it because perhaps you fantasize about these activities?? I just find it interesting that the so called "heterosexuals" who are anti gay seem to think they know so much about the sex lives of gay men. Hmmmm...

It's not that 'straight'

It's not that 'straight' dudes fantasize about these activities, it's that we fantasize about what would do to a fine azz chick, so what in the hell would a gay guy fantasize about? Maybe a 'sword fight'????

Those girls are not ugly,

Those girls are not ugly, contrary to some of these comments. What's ugly is the damage that our history has done on your self-image. How can you look at those pretty eyes, cheeks and smiling faces and see ugly? It's really pitiful that self-haters have the audacity to share their ignorant views for all to see and read. It's really embarrassing that you think it's okay to hate who you are.

damn you are self

damn you are self hating--what is the definition of ugly???? a thin nose? a different complexion? but I bet you think Sarah j Parker is gorgeous right? (not that she isn't) but posts like yours just confirms that many --not most Black people really hate themselves and other black people---I'm not disturbed by your ignorance I'm just afraid you'll pass it on to other young people you may have an influence on--SAD! Look in the mirror people--Black is beautiful anyway you slice it!

Nobody said tht you dick!!a!

Nobody said tht you dick!!a! Youre allowed to think those girls are ugly just like others (including me) are allowed to think theyre cute- beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I just think that making multiple comments on the internet calling some 16 year old girls ugly is so childish, negative and unnecessary. GROW THE FUCK UP. Keep it movin on posts like these if you have nothing good to say.

I wish people would just take

I wish people would just take ownership of their actions without giving them apologies with the community serve to match. Tracy is a comedian .. a lousy one .. but never the less thats what he does. Comedians say what some ppl want to say but just dont have the balls to say and I really think his supposedly 'punch line' was just that. Do I think he would do that to his own son? No. Comedians come up with material based off things they've seen or heard. So if you going to apologize for what you say - then maybe you should start doing a better job of screening those jokes so you don't have to apologize later. Whats the use of apologizing for something you didn't literally mean in the first place??
