Hubby Claims accident in shooting his wife with an AK- 47

New details in case --- Ohio student kills one and wounds 4 in school shooting , but who exactly was T.J. Lane ?

(CNN) -- T.J. Lane didn't belong to any particular clique in the schools he attended, fellow students said. Even those who knew described him as quiet, someone who was guarded, seemingly sad at times, but nice once you broke through the wall that he put up around himself.

But they never would have thought that he'd be described as a killer -- until Monday, when two students told CNN they saw Lane walk up to a table in the cafeteria of Ohio's Chardon High School and begin firing. The suspect was arrested a short time later, after being chased from the school by a teacher. Police have not identified the alleged gunman except to say he is a juvenile.
One person died in the shooting, while four others were wounded, authorities said.

" From the video below the way he is described by the yung ady who befreinded him, sounds like a classic case of symptoms and ingredient for a ticking time bomb .

 Will people learn to leave people alone about the way they dress or act . I am not excusing  T.J Lanes actions because violence should never be the answer , but people are really only human."  

I also found a cool little forum that discussed this tragedy - click the link and check it out , pretty interesting. Its all too sad and bullying is a dead end street of fun going nowhere .

Cissy and Whitney better days
 Cissy has unfinished business to attend to -- sources say she's planning a pilgrimage BACK to the Beverly Hills hotel room where her daughter died ... all in an attempt to get some closure.

According to sources close to Cissy, she wants to go back to room 434 at the Beverly Hilton hotel and reestablish a spiritual connection with her daughter ... in order to come to terms with her sudden death.

We're told Cissy plans to pray while she's there -- and just spend quiet, contemplative time in the space.

As one source put it -- Cissy "won’t be at peace until she gets closure."

Chris Brown may be headed to jail.

 "Bitch, you not gonna put this up on no website." is the last thing that Christal Spann heard as Chris Brown Rolled down his Bentley window and allegedly snatched the young lady's platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player Brown two weeks have definitely been Kray following his "second chance" comeback at 12 February's Grammy awards. Fans, musicians and have spoken out against the rehabilitation of Brown's public image, particularly given the singer's lack of remorse.

It is not every day that you spot a celebrity and get a chance to snap a picture.  If Brown is found to have stolen Spann's phone, in violation of his probation, he could be sentenced to as much as four years in jail.

Out a Miami nightclub Cameo, Spann and her friends observed the singer supposedly partying with groupies and snapped pictures with her phone.

Is Bobby Brown sister lying about whitney ?

Tina and Whitney
Tina Brown and her brother
The cat is out the bag so to speak and the stories of Whitney Houston are starting to pour down faster than a torrential rainstorm. Bobby Brown in laws were also Whitney Friends and supposedly some were drug partners . I will not publish any of the words said by Brown's sister out of respect for her fans . I thought the stories were interested and a bit shocking . I even heard way back in the day that Bobby's sister Tina Brown would be talking to the press soon . Now the day has come . I wonder if The National Enquirer Paid her for her revelations . If you would like to read the stories click the link and check it out for your self - it's a two parter wild read .

Fantasia talking about Whitney Houston in concert ----

I was with her till she spoke about Nancy Grace is a liar. Nancy Grace is not the most liked character , but I dont think she is going against Whitney's Houston's memory these days . I personally think Fantasia is kinda speaking about herself . I appreciate the message anyhow. The guy at the end wants some exposure - well he got it - but notice how he scares the people coming out the building - tone it down man - love the song but tone it down ...

Whitney Houston Tribute to Michael Jackson

No one could rock a stage like Michael Jackson . He commanded the crowd .
Well as you see in this tribute put together by Michael J including some of his closest performing peers , Whitney couldn't have been at the best of health at that time , but she came out on stage and owned it , RIP The King and Queen . 

Music Anyone ? Me and Bobby's Baby ...........................

This is the whole performane with sound , I remember when Whitney performed at GMA - I was working a 12 hour shift . So this is really my forst time viewing this footage . Contrary to what they reported about the performance being weak , I loved it . It was very energetic and electrifying . Whitney was a powerhouse with vocals . She will be missed . I will be posting more on Whitney for all her fans including myself , who read Breaking Headlines .

Bobbi Kristina can actually sing ......

In this energetic performance on GMA , Whitney displays that she's still got it and Bobbi K displays that the just might . I think she is a little stage shy and probably has as amazing vocal that with the proper training she can become a superstar .

You   gotta know  that if Whitney is her mom she taught her the secrets to singing . If you pay close attention to the last thing Bobbi K says - she does a run with her voice which she went really low with .

 Let me tell you something - you may have missed it but that takes strenghth and she did that effortlessly even thoiugh you barely heard it . That what whitney Houston was the queen of - thise effortless runs that gave her a signature sounds , which you just dont here much of anymore in music because everyone sounds so computerized or they are not really givin us a vocal acrobatic show .

With all the hollywood spawns that we see being put in  the spotlight by their parents who don't even really have what it takes and are truley getting by on the name and notareity of there parents -Whitney never forced Bobby to jump out inot the lime light and she knew the girl had a voice .

 Her grandmother sings and so does her aunts and cousins and her dad . .So ask your self , why wouldnt she be able to do it ?

 I dont know if we will ever get to witness Booby K tear the stage up anytime soon , but I do defeintly know this , Whitney taught her daughter alot of things , including the lesson on how to be a megastar, It will probably be because of the drugs that we wont be able to see that come to fruition .

 But that is the life of a child of hollywood royalty . Im sure she didnt want to live in her mother's spotlight or shadow either . Talk about being put up under pressure . I personally think she could have handled it , she seems like a strong girl . minus the problems that we hear she has . 

Thanks for the memories ...........

If this dosent bring tears to your eyes ... You need jesus .

Whitney Houston Casket photo's - Did the National Enquirer go to far ?

When I was alerted by one of my anonymous sources and there where pictures of Whitney Houston in her coffin floating around I immediantly started to wonder , how much of a stir up this would cause with people . After all this this woman is a legend and now we are reduced to looking at her in a coffin now .

Im am sure it wont be the last time I say this sentence this year , but did you ever think that you would be seeing Ms. Houston's funeral broadcast live . I didnt and you couldnt have paid me to think other wise .

I did report on the a radio show that I co-host that the Enquirer would be dropping bombs here this week .  Photographs like these are not suprising to me maybe a little startling but not shocking , because and I hate to get personal but My grandmother takes pictures at every funeral she goes to and at first I used to be like this isn't right , but sometimes a person just wants to capture a memory . In this case maybe this person was looking for a hefty payday. There are more photo's I heard . The next one's they will publish , if Whitney's family doesn't stop them legally , will be an actress portraying Whitney Houston final moments - leading up to that fateful hour . The National Enquirer is not the only tabloid to air these photo's , take a look .  and see for your self

It seems that flipping the bird has become the thing to do for quick publicity

   Adele  aced “21” wins for album of the year at last night’s BRIT Awards, but talk about pissing on your parade,  the singer has her acceptance speech cut short because of time, which in turn , she proceeds to toss the crowd the bird .
“Multiple press outlets have quoted Adele as saying backstage that the gesture was meant "for the suits, not the fans."  I beleive her - why would you flip off her adoring fans and peers . I truley think it was hilarious to , could you imagine your self standing on a stage in front of thousands and all you want to do is thank the people tat are closest to you and you hear " cue the music " - that's gotta sting .

“I was cut off during my speech, but I wanted to thank the British public for all their support. I was held up with my voice and troubles, but the album kept walking without me. I flipped the bird for the suits at the BRITS who cut me off.

"We regret this happened and we send our deepest apologies to Adele that her big moment was cut short this evening due to the live show over-running," said a statement from BRIT Awards organizers.”

Adele is very popular these days for her hit single's Rolling in the deep '

Music Anyone ? Tina Turner - What's love got to do with it

Ms. Tina Turner asks a good question with this song that burned up the airwaves in the 80's . I remember my mom bought her a Tina Tuner casette tiltled "Private Dancer "tape and the first song I heard was this , I didnt get it at the time . But now I see exactly what she means . I love this woman as the world does and in the light of the events with everyone questioning Whitney and Bobby's relationship. It fits the situation , and maybe in the begining Whitney houston should have been thinking of her own protection , when it came to love and her heart.

I keep hearing she was her own worst enemy. The boss of her own world . So one must protect your value and I guess when your a celebrity , protect your self and not let love take you under , because the show as they say must go on . Trust me , when your on stage with a broken heart , it's no carnival . Ms. Tina had Ike Turner, Whitney had Bobby . They loved these men with all there heart and soul . At the first signs of something not feeling right . This should have been the question that they asked themselves . W e have lost so many celebrites to circumstance . Like Phyllis Hyman who was rumored to be in love with a man who didn't love her . Phyliss couldnt deal with the pain , the world adored her , but in her own personal life - she was just simply a mess and heartbroken over love . On a evening befor she was scheduled to perform . Phyliss didnt make it , Hyman committed suicide by overdosing in her New York City apartment. How devasating that whatever she was going through, the thought of her legeion of fans couldnt cheer her up . Seems Tina made it out unscathed and rose up even stronger than ever . Anyway , beautiful siren's or not - they have a heart the beats and bleeds like ours . Good question Tina - whats love got to do with it - it dosent have to do anything with drug use and violence and broken truths . Nope . Nothing at all .

The Final Farewell to Ms. Whitney Houston

The casket was beautiful , and I dont say that often about those things because after all , its a casket .. but this one was magnificent . The pall bearer's seemed to lose grip of the coffin, but quickly gained control and carried her on their shoulders , in grand fashion and proceeded to walk down the isle . Cissy Houston , her mother followed behinf barely able to walk being held up by ushers. The service went according to plan I hear besides the fact of the obvious , Bobby Brown showing up and going off because he was not able to sit next to his daughter at the funeral. Rev Al Sharpton calmed an angry Bobby Brown down , and reportedly told him 'it's not about you today - let Whitney have her day " . How very sad , how all ths turned out - I still can't beleive she's gone . True she was a known drug addict , but I know she had pulled it toghther and was ready to get back into the biz with a veangence - working with a vocal coach to fix her voice . My heart truley goes out to her daughter and family . We all know what's its like to lose a loved one , but just not on a grand scale and in front of the world . RIP Whitney , The world will always love you .

Solar tornado the size of earth caught by nasa on video
A video of the phenomenon was recorded by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a sun-watching satellite that has transmitted a series of stunning photos of solar flares in recent months.
The tornados are made up of dark plasma sliding across the surface of the Sun, with gusts of up to 480,000 km/h.
Terry Kucera, deputy Solar and Heliospheric Observatory project scientist of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center told Fox news the ribbon shapes could span hundreds of thousands of miles.
“In total length, this could be dozens of Earths — quite large,” she said.
Getting high-resolution recordings of the spectacular tornadoes was not possible until the launch of SDO, she said.
The satellite has several cameras on board that capture solar activity in different wavelengths and frequencies.

The 18-year-old's condition was not immediately known.
An email message sent to a representative of her father, Bobby Brown, was not immediately returned. According to ABC News, Bobbi Kristina was taken from the Beverly Hilton Hotel to Cedars-Sinai Hospital. A press release provided to ABC said that she was "awake and alert."

Clive Davis continues Pre Grammy Party even though Whitney remained on the fourth floor in hotel room .

BEVERLY HILLS—Speaking before hundreds of entertainment executives, musicians and other VIPs gathered at the Beverly Hilton hotel just hours after the death of Whitney Houston, Clive Davis vowed that carrying on with his annual pre-Grammy bash was the most fitting tribute he could offer.

“She graced this stage with her regal presence so many times,” Davis said. “Whitney would have wanted the music to go on and her family asked us to carry on.”

Houston was Davis’s protegee' But she also arrived at a moment when his career needed a boost, helping restore his stature by delivering the biggest commercial successes when he needed them the most.
“I am personally devastated,” a visibly emotional Davis said.

The first two performers, Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, performed poignant standards: “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” and “If I Had You.” Bennett told the crowd Houston was “the greatest singer I ever heard in my life.”

Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said that Jennifer Hudson would perform a musical tribute to Houston during Sunday night’s Grammy broadcast.

The Academy cohosted the Saturday-night event with Davis, and Portnow said canceling “was never an option, because you could hear Whitney on your shoulder saying ‘Hey guys, this is showbiz; the show must go on’.”

As the evening continued, Davis went ahead with his usual routine, pointing out stars in the crowd, including Joni Mitchell, Tom Hanks, Neil Young, Dr. Dre, Sly Stone .

Adding a macabre patina to the proceedings, Beverly Hills police said Houston’s body continued to lie in the hotel room upstairs where she’d been found dead shortly before 4 p.m., even as guests were filing into a ground-floor ballroom at the same hotel. It was unclear when they planned to release the body to the county coroner. Courtesy of speakeasy
