    We Got Your Leaders Right Here, Oprah MP3

    In promoting her new movie, Selma, Oprah Winfrey has attempted to look at the parallel between the civil rights struggle of the 1960s compared to the struggle going on today, specifically around Ferguson.

    All Hail Kanye West, Fighter For Creativity (Also Beyonce) MP3

    Leave it to Kanye West to make an otherwise uninspiring Grammy award show interesting. As Beck was about to accept his award for Album of the Year, Kanye looked like he was about to step onstage and interrupt him as he had Taylor Swift during the 2009 VMAs in favor of Beyonce.
