Boxer To Pay For George Floyd Funeral Services: Floyd Mayweather has offered to pay for all four funeral services planned for George Floyd, whose death in Minnesota has inspired protests and demonstrations across many cities in the United States and elsewhere around the world. TMZ reports that the family has accepted Mayweather’s offer. Hollywood Unlocked first reported the offer from Mayweather. The 43-year-old Mayweather decided to offer after learning that Anzel Jennings, CEO of the TMT music label, grew up with George in Houston. Reports are that Mayweather has said he felt it was the right thing to do. It’s not the first time that Mayweather has done something like this, as in 2011 he paid for the funeral of Genaro Hernandez, who died of cancer at 45. Hernandez was the fighter Mayweather defeated to win his first world title, the WBC 130-pound belt, back in 1998. Mayweather has not fought since Aug. 2017, when he defeated UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a crossover boxing match. More recently, Mayweather has stated his intention to become a full-time trainer, following in the footsteps of his father and uncle Roger, who passed away earlier this year.

There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences. Yes, someone has been charged but justice is far from being achieved.” In the video and in her caption, she went on to direct her followers to sign the change.org petition that was set up to seek justice for Floyd.

Quavo Is Looking For A New Superstar: Page Six reports…If you’re ready to walk it talk it, Quavo wants to hear from you. The 29-year-old recent grad, one-third of platinum-selling hip-hop artists Migos, will be sitting at the judge’s table — alongside groupmate TakeOff, producer Murda Beatz and songwriter Starrah — for Triller’s new talent-search competition, “Step Up to the Mic.” “I’m looking for a superstar,” the “Pick Up” artist shared with Page Six. “Someone who has the ambition, someone who’s willing to learn, but also knows what they bring to the table. Someone unique and real.” Most importantly, Quavo is looking for someone willing to put the effort in, adding, “They have to have that mamba mentality — RIP Kobe — and be ready to work.” The Atlanta native added that singers should be prepared to “adapt” and be willing to push themselves past their comfort zones. “Make sure your voice is as powerful as the ones spitting bars, and just no complaints,” Quavo warned. “Sometimes, being a singer, even I complain — like, ‘my voice ain’t right today’ — but it’s really important to bring it every time with no excuses.” Prizes for the winner include an original hit song crafted by the judges, an accompanying music video, and a major record label and management deal of up to a year. With the necessity of major labels constantly being questioned since the rise of online distribution, Quavo understands the appeal of indies but maintains majors still have their place.

Can He Be Faithful?
by Candace Rogers
Be clear! If he cheats with you, he will cheat on you! It took me a while to understand this poignant fact. I used to think that a woman’s beauty or lack thereof had something to do with whether or not a guy would cheat on her. I assumed that beautiful women stood less a chance of a man being unfaithful than a woman who was not so physically endowed. But I learned the hard way that though men have a deep appreciation for a woman’s beauty if he has a cheating heart, it doesn’t matter how pretty she is, he will soon become bored. When I sat down to write this, I realized that in all my years of dating, I’ve never dated a guy who didn’t cheat on me. MORE

I was in a complete state of shock the day I ran into my boyfriend coming out of a restaurant with his arm draped affectionately around the shoulders of another woman. In fact, I was in a state of shock for two reasons. First, she looked better than me, and she was obviously much younger. I was 34 at the time, and I’m sure ol’ girl was about 20. I also knew instinctively that she was more than a friend. When I called out his name, his face registered a sheepish look, but he kept walking. The woman had an amused look on her face, as I continued to call his name. MORE

Points Of View
Is There An Art To Rejection?
Compiled by Cheryl Lakes
Yanni: “It is my opinion that too many women volunteer on a high scale level to be rejected by men. I have six friends who are single, and only one is in a loving relationship. The other five scramble to be accepted by guys who shouldn’t be allowed on their block.” Shelli: “I think women are more prone emotionally to deal with rejection than men are. The Bachelor Show on ABC truly demonstrates how women are more accepting of the feeling than men are. Women cry and men turn violent.” MORE
Can You Tell
by M.K. Allison
Sandy: “My boyfriend was fooling around with my sister-in-law, (my brother’s wife) and I didn’t know, but I did know. I could tell by the attention he gave her and his demeanor toward me, that I was no longer special. I’m just glad I ended the relationship before I walked in on them at a cousin’s wedding reception. I believe women are psychic. My brother never saw it coming.” Carla: “I believe strongly that a woman should always follow that sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach when she feels her man may be cheating on her. I made the mistake of ignoring that feeling when I was married, and it turned out that my ex-husband was heavily involved with a friend, who visited my home regularly. ” MORE
