Chad-L-Coleman

Case in point: Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), who took our Pop Culture Personality Test and named the movie that scared him even though it wasn’t supposed to (Shrek), the movie he wishes he could watch again for the first time (A Soldier’s Story), and the movie he almost walked out of (Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys).

And, really proving our point, he also serenaded us with some Rihanna. Watch the video below.

Bill Cosby rape accusations: There's smoke, but what happens when it blows away?

As difficult as it might be, for a few minutes, let’s disregard the critical question of whether Bill Cosby is guilty of rape or not.

Instead, let’s focus on the public reaction to the blooming scandal, as expressed both through traditional media and social media.

Months later, he was the celebrity commencement speaker at Carnegie Mellon University; in 2009, he was honored with the the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor by the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. READ FULL STORY
