The nation is morning yet again after another horrific mass shooting in Oregon.

On Thursday morning, a gunman, identified as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer, opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon killing nine people and injuring seven others. According to a surviving victim, Mercer was after Christians.

Anastasia Boylan told her father and brother that the gunman, who is now also dead, ordered Christians to stand up. And when they did, he said they were going to meet God very soon.

Officials say Mercer had body armor and was heavily armed, with a large amount of ammunition.

President Obama briefed the nation during a press conference on Thursday, expressing his concern that mass shootings are still occurring. “I hope and pray that I don’t have to come out again in my tenure as president to offer my condolences to families under these circumstances. But based on my experience as president, I can’t guarantee that,” Obama said.

“We collectively are answerable to those families, who lose their loved ones because of our inaction,” POTUS explained. “I would particularly ask America’s gun owners, who are using those guns properly, safely, to hunt, for sport, or protecting their families, to think about whether your views are properly being represented by the organization that suggests it’s speaking for you.”

Celebrities also took to social media to express their condolences following this egregious crime.

    “Anastasia Boylan told her father and brother that the gunman, who is now also dead, ordered Christians to stand up. And when they did, he said they were going to meet God very soon.” The article never said he shot them after they stood. Why do I keep hearing that he shot the Christians? Sensationalism?

Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards



The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.


Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!


Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.


And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
