Mondo Gurerra Loses on Project Runway but still a Winner
Mondo Gurerra moments ago lost on the Season 8 finale of Project Runway on Lifetime and even though he lost he is still a winner in the hearts of alot of folks aross the country due to him shocking the tv world when he revealed that he was HIV positive during episode 10.
Mondo Guerra was raised Catholic. He came out to his mom at age 17 and she wanted to keep that a secret. He explained that his textile was based on a plus sign that represents his HIV positive status.
He’s held the secret for 10 years of his life. That’s amazing. He’s 32.
Mondo: “This has been so hard to keep a secret from my parents because I feel guilt and I feel shame. I feel like if they knew, I don’t know if they’d know how to deal with it and I’ve just realized that I can’t live that way anymore. I can’t hide anything because I am such a better person than just being a coward.”

Second gay teen this month takes his life-- 17 yr old Terrell Williams
In a statement posted on Terrel’s Twitter page on Wednesday, Cheryl Williams wrote:
"My son meant the world, and high school bullies pushed him over the edge. I hope and pray, that no other child ever has to go through what he did. Bullying isn’t worth it. Why can’t people just be nice?"
This Saturday would have been Terrel’s 18th birthday, and the 7th anniversary of Terrel’s and Daric’s relationship.
The boys met and became friends when they were 10 and 9 years old, respectively. “We began as play dates, like anybody else would, and as we got older into the teen years, his parents allowed us to give dating a shot,” said Daric, who is now 16 years old.
“Terrel was a compassionate, fun loving, outgoing person who enjoyed life to the fullest,” said Daric.
“He loved life, but felt the need to take it, because [the bullying] didn’t stop … respectful, whole hearted people like Terrel, and the growing number of others, shouldn’t have to feel suicide is the answer, because bullies won’t stop.”
To date, there has not been any formal action yet from the school district in regards to the bullying incident.
On September 31, Terrel suffered a gunshot wound to the chest while visiting New York City in what appeared to be an attempted mugging.
Terrel’s death is the second reported suicide this month among gay teens, and follows an epidemic of LGBT suicides reported in the past 6 weeks. In September, at least 6 teens teens committed suicide as a result of anti-gay bullying and intolerance.
Yesterday we reported that 19-year-old Corey Jackson, of Warren, MI, was found in a wooded area of the Oakland University campus in Rochester, MI. The Oakland County medical examiner confirmed Corey’s death was also a suicide by hanging

Out Artist Baron premieres "Birds" Directed by Kirk Shannon-Butts
Birds (Official Music Video) from baron. on Vimeo.
Birds (Music Video) Directed by Kirk Shannon-Butts Single from the Award Winning album Celebrity. For More information about Baron and his music go to: http://www.artistbaron.com/
Below is Baron describing the concept of the video off his album Celebrity.
The video was meant to capture the feeling of what it feels like to leave a relationship. How at sometimes you feel lost because you don't know what's nex. Also the confusion you feel when you leave things behind.
I chose this song for a video because I know many people can relate to it. It's a very personal song for me; one of the first songs I actually wrote for the album "Celebrity". It feels good that I've gotten such a great response from the video.
I'm also releasing a maxi-single for Birds that will include remixes by Steven Toeteberg from Germany. So watch out for that.
Actually Kirk chose me. We were been back in forth about working together after I submitted the song for his film Blueprint. We met in early July and came up with a concept. He was very easy to work with because we both had a shared vision. His crew was amazing.

New Music Reviews 4 the Week
- Keyshia’s first single off of her upcoming 4th album due out in December. I am in love the beat which features an organ. Nicki enters during the second verse spitting her typical Nicki Minaj lyrics, the song is not a club banger but I am feeling it either way. I think this is a good track to announce her return after becoming a new Mother and Fiancé.
T.I. Ft. Chris Brown – “Get Back Up”
Even tho T.I. is having a list of issues involving the police, that has not stopped him from staying on top of his music game. He teams up with “Takers” co-star Chris Brown on this new track. In this song they refer to getting back up after getting knocked down. Both T.I. and Chris Brown have had their share of issues over the past year and a half. This track has a really good message and the beat is good to.
Flo-Rida - “Turn Around (5, 4, 3, 2, 1,)”
So when I heard that this was a Euro-dance track I was a lil nervous about how it would sound but after listening to it I can honestly say that this track is hot! This is most def a club banger, ladies (and some gentlemen) this track will make you want to hit the dance floor for some booty shakin’. This track is on his upcoming third album “Only 1 Flo” due to be released on November 30th.
Young Chris Ft. Rico Love – “Break A Bitch Down”
I really think this song is so-so. I am not completely enthused by this track.It really sounds like the typically southern rap song and very similar to Souja Boy as far as the way that the lyrics are delivered. I was also caught off guard by Rico Love on this track since he is typically known for Euro-dance tracks. This track really didn’t impress me
Rihanna Ft. Drake – “What’s My Name”
This is an interesting track with a slight island groove to it. Beyond the rumored relationship between Rihanna and Drake this is a good track, almost has a lil summertime feel to it. This will be the send single from Rihanna’s new album “Loud” due to be released November 16th
Monica Ft. Trey Songz – “Here I Am” (Remix)
Monica FINALLY releases her third single 7 months after her platinum selling album “Still Standing” dropped this past March. Although this is understandable since she was on tour with Trey for his nationwide “Passion, Pain & Pleasure” tour. The song “Here I Am” was originally set to be remixed with fellow label mate Jamie Foxx. Monica says “It’s a special song to me because it’s totally different than what I normally do” in a Rap-Up TV interview. The song was written by Ester Dean and was originally written for a man. The lyrics were changed around to suit a woman and I can say all in all I like this track. I actually think the album version is better tho.

Raz B Management Responses to latest Molesatation Accusations with Marques Houston & Chris Stokes
Below is a statement from Raz B Management team that contacted Andresflava to make clarity as to why Raz B decided to bring up the accusations again in regards to Chris Stokes and Marques Houston Molesting him when he was 13. Just to be clear Raz B is now 27.
Raz is a former member of B2K and now a solo artist. When Raz made the original statement back in '07 he wasn't as tactful with his approach as we (his team at the time) would have liked. As his publicist and part of his management team for over 5years, I obviously know he has a fan base and his movements are watched. However, his personal inner turmoil is not for the fans per se. How many fans have been abused (be it emotionally, physically,or verbally), how many have been raped, how many have been neglected, how many have come forward only to not be believed? How many fans have been arrested or in a fight for acting out because they were so angry and felt so stifled because no one would listen? How many of us have issues in our own lives that when we get to discussing, we still get angry, no matter how old we are and no matter how long it's been since it originally happened.
Raz has been in this industry for years and years before B2K even became a household name. Raz did an interview on the Doo Dirty show about a week ago and he said, "I was a kid when I entered the industry. Everyone is around when they want to make money off of you, but no one teaches you the business or how to handle yourself in certain situations" Everyone is talking about what they "WOULD HAVE" done had it happened to them, at that age he SHOULD HAVE known better and so on. But those of us who are fortunate enough to never have had that experience cannot and should never talk about what we woulda, and he coulda, shoulda, done. You never know how you are going to respond to ANY situation until it happens to you.
People are going to believe what they want in any situation. I'd like to think that people are more intelligent then they let on. Raz has not spoken to Quindon and neither Raz nor myself knew that Vibe had contacted Quindon when they did an interview on the whole situation in '08. I cannot speak on Quindon's behalf but Raz is aware of the Eddie Long allegations. So while everyone is like why is he talking about it again, because it is in his face again. He is Maurice Robinson, Anthony Flag, Jamal Parris, and Spencer LeGrande. He is every little boy or girl that trusted an adult and had their innocence taken in the process. He was recently sent paperwork to serve Chris, the Eddie long case, Omarion calling him bi-polar on the radio these are constants in his life regardless if the media is around to see. It's not "okay I said it in 07 and now I will say it again in '10." These things didn't go away because the cameras did. People will continue to judge, and joke, and speculate and that is fine and that is their right to do so but ultimately it's about Raz, and Quindon, and anyone else being able to deal with their past in order to be able to move on with their future and regardless of how we feel about it or what we think, we should respect that.
It's like with gay people. People say gays aren't born that way. Would anyone purposely want to be something where they can be beaten, taunted, bullied, harassed, or killed. If Raz wanted "attention" he could have done a number of things. I don't know many men, especially black straight men that say I'm gonna tell the world that my cousin molested me just for shits and giggles....

Brox Gang Accused of Torturing Gay Man and 3 others Make 1st Court Appearance
Eight gay-hating Bronx gangbangers accused of one of the city's most savage crimes in years appeared in court Sunday to face charges in what Mayor Bloomberg called an act of "pure evil."
The eight were hit with a slew of charges including gang assault, sexual assault, robbery, weapons possession and hate crimes. The gang assault count alone is enough to put them away for 25 years.
None of the defendants - Mendez, 23; Elmer Confresi, 23; David Rivera, 21; Bryan Almonte, 17; Steven Caraballo, 17; Nelson Falu, 17; Denis Peitars, 17; and Brian Cepeda, 16, all of the Bronx - entered pleas.
They are due back in court Oct. 14. Only Peitars and Caraballo were offered the chance to post $50,000 cash bail.
A ninth suspect, Rudy Vargas-Perez, 22, remained at large.
Members of a penny-ante crew calling themselves the Latin King Goonies, the defendants are accused of a depraved rampage that began at 3 a.m. on Oct. 3, after learning a 17-year-old wannabe recruit had been seen with a 30-year-old gay man.
In the abandoned three-story house at 1910 Osborne Place, they used as a clubhouse - and turned into a makeshift torture chamber - they allegedly stripped the boy naked, beat him, slashed him with a box cutter and sodomized him with a plunger handle.
That evening, a second 17-year-old was tied up in the house and interrogated about his relationship the 30-year-old man.
They then allegedly lured the older man to the house, stripped him, tied him to a chair and forced the 17-year-old to hit him in the face and burn his genitals with cigarettes as they jeered.
They then allegedly battered the older man with chains and sodomized him with a small baseball bat.
Some of the gangbangers also went to his 40-year-old brother's apartment and beat him, and forcing him to give them $1,000 dollars by putting him on the phone with his terrified captive brother.
They left him tied to his bed with his eyes, nose and mouth covered with tape, close to suffocation.
The other victims were allowed to go free but warned they would be killed if they revealed what happened to them.
The gangbangers allegedly cleaned their torture chamber with bleach, ripped up carpet and repainted the walls in an attempt to cover their tracks.
Tipsters told police what happened, and cops began arresting the crew Wednesday.
"The 30-year-old victim is terrified. He's in hiding. This gang still has leaders and soldiers out there," said one police source.

Housewives of ATL... Is BACK...
Now Dwight is clearly trying to buy up a reason to stay on the show. with him and Ne Ne on the outs there was no reason to be apart of the show any longer. So in walks Phaedra his new meal ticket and there with rumors that he loaned Greg 10,000 in cash (who does that?) because of money issues and 30,000 for Sheree's low budget fashion show last season there is a contract for Dwight to be on the 3rd season. If you missed it trust it me it is worth the hour. However this show has no Glam and that was Lisa (so so dressing) but she was clearly the balance between Ne Ne, Sheree, and Kim. I miss you Girl... until next time This is Brazil @4ever_Brazil with my 2 cents...
