Beyonce’s Camp Runs Down Her CHARITABLE Resume To Dispute Harry Belafonte’s CRITICISMS

Beyonce’s camp has responded to iconic actor/singer Harry Belafonte’s recent criticism of her and Jay-Z’s involvement in the community.  In his oipinion, the powerful duo don’t do enough.  Find out what Beyonce’s camp responded with inside…..

 

Now that iconic crooner Harry Belafonte has blasted Jay-Z and Beyonce for not doing enough for minorities, Bey’s camp is fighting back.

Earlier, Harry spoke out about charitable images of minorites in Hollywood saying to the Hollywood Reporter last week:

Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — shit. It is sad. And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black.

Now Bey’s camp is having their say.   Her rep shot back in an email to media with what she called “an abbreviated list of the unselfish work Beyoncé has done and continues to do.”

The list ran down Bey’s charitable works including her "I Was Here" video she shot for World Humanitarian Day this past week, which paid homage to the work done by humanitarian workers, co-founding The Survivor Foundation “a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston”, donating $ 100K in 2008 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike and performing in “MTV’s Hope For Haiti Now!

Maybe this still doesn’t impress Mr. Belafonte.  But folks should always remember that not everyone puts their charitable acts on full display.  Some celebs do, some celebs don’t.  The important thing is that everyone gives back in some way.

Rocsi & Eddie Murphy Take Their “Coffee Runs” To Hawaii For Vacay

After jetting to L.A. from NYC to make "professional coffee runs" with Eddie Murphy, Rocsi Diaz was spotted chillin’ on a hotel room balcony in Hawaii yesterday with Mr. Murphy as well.

 

Check the pic inside…

The twosome have been spotted twice in L.A. on coffee runs while holding hands and hugging.  Rocsi sent us a statement of denial saying they have only a "professional relationship" and it was "just coffee."

But the duo seemed to book it to Hawaii for a relaxing vacay recently as well.  Eddie & Rocsi were relaxing and taking in the sights on their hotel room balcony.  I suppose they could have just been getting coffee in Hawaii too.  You aint gotta lie to kick it.  Do you boo.

And if you were wondering why Rocsi was out several days last week on "106 & Park," she was also spending a few days on the set of a new film, The Last Letter.

The movie stars Rocsi, Lynn Whitfield, Tatyana Ali & Gary Dourdan, and the celebs all snapped a pic that Tatyana posted on Facebook a few days ago:

Steve Stoute And Jay-Z Reveal Why Hip Hop Runs The Tanned World

 

With his NY Times bestseller The Tanning Of America, still flying off shelves, Steve Stoute sat down with Jay-Z to talk about hip hop culture and why its become such a global force culturally.  See the interview inside…

In a new web series that coincides with his debut book, Steve Stoute and HuffPost Black Voices presented the first episode in of "The Tanning Effect" featuring an exclusive interview with Jay-Z.  Mr. Carter reveals the meaning of his joint album with Kanye West, his epiphany that his music has a substantial impact on mainstream America, and being an unpaid spokesman for Cristal champagne.

During the interview the two discussed the success of Watch the Throne debuting at number one in 23 countries and when he first realized that his music had a substantial impact on mainstream America.  

While discussing hip hop’s impact, Jay-Z said,

"Hip Hop is a global thing almost the way jazz was."  While he compares the freedom of hip hop to how jazz music had limitless boundaries, he continued,

"Hip hop has a voice and spoke directly to people and to their heart and how they were feeling."

Jay said he first knew the impact of hip-hop on mainstream America when he did "The Hard Knock Life Tour" with DMX, Method Man and Red Man.  And once he got to the concert, he saw that the audience was 80% white, and then he realized that the "hip-hop" audience was bigger than just "THE BLOCK."

HOLY BABY BUMP! Beyonce Runs Rainy Errands

Beyonce was led around by her huge baby bump under her tight black mini dress in Manhattan today.  She was out running errands in the rain.  But, as always, Julius was there to hold the umbrella and protect her precious cargo.

 

Pics inside…

In a short sleeved two-toned zip-front black mini dress (with a waist and back slit) that fit like a glove and showed her protruding bump, Beyonce looked cute and glowing and even completed her look with sky-high pumps.  She’s approaching the 6-month mark (if she hasn’t reached it officially already) and still rocking these heels like it’s nothing.

 

The "Countdown" singer hit the midtown area for a few rainy stops.

Looks like she’s proving to the naysayers she’s actually pregnant.  No fakery here….
