WITH HER BEING A DYKE, IT MAY

WITH HER BEING A DYKE, IT MAY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN A FRIENDSHIP THAT SHE HAD WITH ALIYAH. MOST WOMEN DO NOT HAVE DYKES AS BEST FRIENDS. THESE PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY ARE INTO A LOT OF THINGS THAT THEY HAVE TO DO FOR THE INDUSTRY. IT IS A REQUIREMENT. YEAH I SAID IT.

That's why Missy likes girls.

That's why Missy likes girls. She (like Queen Latifah) think all men are hurtful and chose to be with women who cannot abuse them again.

I absolutely loved Missy's Behind The Music. The entire story was riveting. I was especially touched when they showed the Aaliyah tragedy and how much she and Tim loved her. The 3 of them together were magical. Now we're all left with is what could have been.

Since when does a GOSSIP site

Since when does a GOSSIP site ever give a damn about accuracy? This site put up rumors that Pleasure P was a convicted sex offender when there was no proof whatsoever. Hmmm. I think someone sent Ms. Natasha a "cease and desist" letter to scare her. Lark is KNOWN to sue the tabloids (and won) for putting up "false" information. Although ain't NOTHING about her drug use false. Aside from her appearance, ask ANYONE who has worked w/ her in the past few years, and they aren't hard to find b/c she's only been doing bootleg ass movies w/ bootleg ass people, and they will tell you her ass has a serious drug problem.

I think YBF might've had a

I think YBF might've had a conscience check and realized that attacking someone's looks who isn't really putting themselves out into the public eye very much was hella rude and I commend them for taking it down. I mean, whatever the reason for her change in looks, it really isn't something that should be mocked like that. Even if it is drugs, which I hope not.
INTS's picture

Oh it's definitely drugs, but

Oh it's definitely drugs, but that post is no different from the numerous "foolywang" posts they have of million other celebs. They just finished mocking Fantasia.
NikNak's picture

I think commenting on

I think commenting on someone's clothing choice is WAAAY different than criticizing them b/c of the way they look, esp. if you don't know if they have a drug problem or not. To me, it looks more like she might have a liver/kidney problem. People who do have those problems tend to have a sallow complexion like hers. Also, Lark Voorhies hasn't been around in a minute. It's not like other celebs who are craving our attention every day. Now, even if it is drugs-that still not something I believe people should be mocked over. She would need rehab and prayer in that case.
