T.I. is jumping to Iggy Azalea's defense!!
In response to Banks' racially charged rant, the rapper tweeted:
The biggest news across America right now is that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson has not been indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown.
This three-month-long saga has always been emotional, taxing not only the residents of Ferguson, Mo., but also anyone who has an opinion on the subject of criminal justice.
Celebrities and politicians have always used their fame as a platform to discuss political issues, and Monday's verdict was no exception.
President Barack Obama even made a live, televised statement following the decision, saying:
"First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so, we need to accept that this decision was the Grand Jury's to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It's an understandable reaction, but I join Michael's parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully.
Ch-ch-check out the reactions on social media to the Grand Jury's decision. (below)
Is it getting hot in here or is it just these ladies??
Well, some more than others!
La La definitely went all out with her black Alexander McQueen gown, complete with a sizeable boob window and not one, but TWO up-to-there slits! She also finished off the salacious ensem with matching sandals and a smattering of Jacob & Co. jewels.
Keke also put the spotlight on her tatas with her bright yellow, cutout Cushnie et Ochs frock, which she stylishly paired with gold Christian Louboutin pumps, a matching clutch, and XIV Karat baubles.
As for Gabrielle, she donned a lace Dolce & Gabbana crop top with its matching pencil skirt and sandals. Though she was flashing her sexy stems, compared to La La and Keke, she was super demure!!
Meanwhile, Taraji upped the drama with her red Kayat gown and a handful of silver accessories. Oh, and did we mention her fabulously voluminous tresses?? Cause those were flawless, too!
Sigh. With such fierce looks it's hard for us to pick a fave!! Which was yours???

The BET Awards are going high class this year.
Naturally, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar were also up for awards for their work this year, while Chris Brown, who was on hand at the announcement ceremony, is once again up for Best Male R&B Artist.
Drake should get the honorary team player award- he's featured on FOUR of the noms for Best Collaboration!
You can see the full list of nominees in all categories …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Taraji P. Henson is awesome!
Not only does she love animals very much, but she's willing to use her Oscar nominated self as a voice box to spread love messages for animals!
Now that's someone using their high celebrity profile for the greater good!
She especially wants to help animals who are locked up outside and freezing! She asks for all dog owners to keep their pooch inside where they can stay warm and toasty!
We think that's a wonderful idea, don't you?
Ch-ch-check her out in by clicking PLAY (above) !!!
Oscar nominated actress and singer Taraji P. Henson is not only a multitalented lady…
She's also a fighter for animal rights!!
She teamed up with PETA for a seksi photo shoot with a cute pooch in the ad (above).
The ad reads:
"Chained dogs suffer day in and day out. They are cold, hungry, thirsty, vulnerable, and lonely. Keep them inside, where it's safe and warm."
It's so sad to see an outdoor dog, chained to a tree or a stake in the ground, laying outside all alone.
Or in a rickety dog house that provides no protection from the elements at all.
So listen to the angelic Ms. Henson and bring your pups indoors!!

Why, Johnny, why?!
In a recent interview, olympic figure skater Johnny Weir talked about New York's Fashion Week and, sadly, his love for fur.
When asked if PETA writes him hate letters, he responded:
"Of course. I had to have the FBI go with me to the Olympics because there was a legitimate price put on my head by somebody associated with Friends for Animals. I’m used to it. They’re a terrorist group. Everyone has the right to choose their way. I hate when people will wear fur and then say it’s faux just for PR. If you’re going to wear it then own it, love it."
Teddy Hilton is not exactly pleased to hear this news, but we can only hope Johnny might be persuaded by the celebs urging fellow fashionistas to stop wearing fur at Fashion Week this year.
We're not a fan of that lady sitting next to him (above) either!
