Two Down


I was at the Universoul Circus with my family today. We were enjoying the festivities and such when my brother, who was sitting right next to me sent me a text that read; "Issac Hayes, dead at 65." I couldn't believe it. Not that people do not die, but just because when I got the text it dawned on me that they always say that celebrities die in threes. First Mr. Mac. Now, Mr. Hayes. I wonder who will be the next.
Somewhere, someplace, some black celebrity is huddled in a corner praying it is not them.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Hayes. You will be missed, but your music shall live on.
-One Man's Opinion. Peace.

I was on Mediatakeout.com on Thurs and someone said he was dead. Needless to say he wasn't but the rumor was spreading and world news had to clear it up by saying his publicist said he's fine. I knew then it wasnt looking good. Get the text about lil wayne daugther dying in a car crash..i think its a hoax. Not sure why someone would do that.



rumor has it that lil wayne's daughter died in a car accident. A text is going around but I think its a hoax..no info on it..so hopefully the celeb's dying in 3's dont happen.

Bernie, at fifty, was definitely too young to die. Isaac wasn't old, either. That totally sucks.

When I heard these stories I just thought, "Man! To be middle-aged at twenty-five or thirty-two! That would suck!!"

Yeah..my mom said that same 3's mess, lol

Just hope it isnt true .

I was thinking the same thing about death coming in 3's. I'm really trying not to be morbid but I won't stop crossing my mind.

Hayes, Mac and Samuel L. Jackson just wrapped a film not too long ago, slated to come out soon.

Hope Mr. Jackson isn't the 3rd.

The last time I say Isaac Hayes was on Conan O'brien conducting the show's band and they were playing an extended version of the theme from Shaft. It wasn't until then that I not only realized that the man was a genius, but that he looked like he really enjoyed it and that made me enjoy him even more.

When God closes a door, he opens a window ... and pushes Flavor Flav out of it.

There's your third (hopefully).

If you're into multiculturalism, rumor has it that Paul Newman isn't too far from the dirt nap himself.
