Hail The Best Man! Jay-Z Agrees To Be Kanye West Best Man For Paris Wedding To Kim Kardashian

 Finally he agrees! I am sure Kim will be over the moon as her dreams are finally unfolding.

Radar Online reports that Jay Z has finally agreed to be Kanye West's best man for his Paris wedding to Kim Kardashian, which means that Beyonce will be in attendance as well. Jay had previously declined the invitation to be Kanye's groomsman in the past with his primary concern being the media scrutiny involved and the possibility of the wedding being aired on Kim's reality TV show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'. Kim has since shut that down by stating last week that the E! Cameras will not be allowed at the wedding, only filming events leading up to and after the wedding. And Kim and Kanye are following up with the success of their Vogue shoot, by having talks with the magazine instead for a spread of the wedding, a decision which Jay and Bey are said to be fully in support of.
See what super-stardom does to you, eh? It makes you have class! Sometime in the not so far past she would have invited all the cameras in for a wedding shoot but now?  Way to go Kim!

Tyler Perry's Sends Powerful Message To Parents + Prays For Safe Return Of Chibok Girls

Award winning movie producer and director Tyler Perry is known for the powerful messages he shares on Facebook. Today the multi-millionaire asked parents a very powerful question "Do you know that the child you delivered will soon deliver you?". The movie mogul also prayed for the safe return of the over 200 abducted Nigerian girls. Below is what he wrote:


In my prayer and quiet time at 5am, I was praying about how to (one day) be the best father that I can be. I have no doubt that I will be a great dad, but as I looked back in my life for an example, all I could remember were all of the horrible things that were said and done to me as a kid. But before I could get sad about it, I remembered something I wrote a while back about "learning in reverse".
If you are like me and had no good examples, then your lesson is in reverse. I learned many years ago that if I do the opposite of what was done and said to me then I have learned how to be a good father some day. Which lead my mind to a line in one of my favorite songs of all time. It's called “Mary Did You Know”. I've written about this before, but I think it's worth sharing again.
