Hill Harper Is A Do-Gooder+Zoe S. & Vanessa W. Hit Up Events

In addition to being an award winning actor, author and scholar, Hill Harper is also regarded as a strong philanthropic force and a tireless political activist. A Magna Cum Laude graduate from Ivy League Brown University and recipient of graduate degrees in both law and public administration from Harvard, Hill is an avid supporter of good friend and former classmate Barack Obama, and is often called upon to chime in on relevant issues in current events and politics concerning Senator Obama.  And on his days off from shooting "CSI: NY", he’ll be participating in Obama surrogate activities each weekend until the election. That's hot. By the way, his new book Letters To A Young Sister is still killing the NY Times Best Sellers list.  It's a follow up to his national best-seller Letters To A Young Brother: MANifest Your Destiny.  And in it, Hill shares his powerful wisdom and draws on the advice of positive female role models in a courageous attempt to come to the aid of today’s young women, who are facing today’s tough issues including self-esteem, body image, racism, sexism, sex and dating, and turning their dreams into reality. Barack SO should have picked Hill as his running mate... And he also was previously on the Discover Martell national nobility tour. Mr. Harper was the tour’s anchor, traveling with the brand from city to city honoring African Americans around the country for their contributions to the community. Here he is with fellow honorees Holly Robinson Peete, Nia Long, and Luda: Pics of Zoe Saldana and Vanessa Williams when you read the rest...

Janet's Still Cancelling Shows+The VP Debate "SNL" Skit

YBF readers who hit up the Janet Jackson concert last night in Greensboro, NC dished to TheYBF.com about Janet's weird cancellation of that concert. And the way they were informed that the concert was canceled: When they pulled up, everyone was going the wrong way to park. The parking attendant came up to the cars and told folks that the show was just canceled. And they were told to check the newspapers and internet for more info. Damn Janet. No warning? I'm also hearing Ms.

Barack Covers VIBE+Joe Brings The Foolishness+Jazmine Sullivan Busts The Charts

VIBE magazine announces its November 2008 cover today with Barack Obama, marking the first time in history that the leading lifestyle publication has ever formally endorsed a Presidential nominee. In the issue, Editor-in-Chief Danyel Smith writes, "…I am clear about what must be done. The staff is behind me. This is a formal endorsement, by VIBE magazine, of Senator Barack Obama…We built hip hop from nothing to something. We can do anything." This historic collector's edition also marks the second time that VIBE has placed the Senator of Illinois on its cover after being the first music magazine to do so in September 2007. In an unprecedented one-page letter exclusive to VIBE readers, Obama also calls out today's youth, urging them to take a stand and vote for change. He writes, "Dear VIBE Readers…I am running for President to take this country in a new direction. But I can't do it alone. I need you. Whether it's the first time, or the first time in a long time, I need you to register and vote on November 4th." In other political news, I have seriously lost almost all respect for Joe.  Apparently, a while back, Joe was toting the fact that he is not a registered voter. And he had no intentions of doing so. So he hit up the Tom Joyner Morning Show a couple weeks ago and confirmed this. He said he had no good reason he wasn't registered, but he "knows Obama is going to win hands down" and O didn't need his vote. *blank stare* He went on to say he would register only because Tom twisted his arm to, and he thought he could vote online. This is a grown ass man. I'm done. Listen to the audio here. UPDATE: Joe went on the Wendy Williams show last week and said he registered right after the Tom Joyner show and is now recruiting others to do the same.
