Young Thug is mainstream hip-hop's most eccentric personality. He's been wracked with legal troubles and release delays these past few weeks. But Thugger isn't going anywhere. Today (Aug. 9) is his 23rd birthday.
Whitney Houston‘s 52nd birthday comes with an extra sense of sadness after Bobbi Kristina Brown’s passing. But what makes today (Aug. 9) a bittersweet one instead of one clouded by complete dour is the sense of joy and illumination Houston left within her best songs.

One of the weirdest problems about modern television is how for some reason, Sister, Sister repeats aren't on air. The show isn't notable for just Tia and Tamera Mowry's antics.

President Barack Obama's two terms haven't been perfect with lethal overseas drone strikes occurring more than not and gun control is still an issue.
