This is definitely not how that money should have been used!

Unfortunately, it looks like pretty damn important funds were misused in Nigeria back in 2006 under the watch of then-Governor Goodluck Jonathan.

So not okay!!

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were brought to Nigeria for the very first ThisDay Music Festival in Lagos, but the way they were paid is now under scrutiny.

It has been discovered that Bayelsa officials approved

One Direction Announces Plans To Keep Raising Funds To Fight Poverty! Watch HERE!

We could not be more PROUD of our boys in One Direction!

As we've reported, the group recently traveled to a supremely impoverished region of Ghana as part of the United Kingdom's Red Nose Day/Comic Relief efforts, which raises funds to help alleviate poverty worldwide!

And while we were all treated to an AWESOME cover of Blondie's One Way Or Another to help raise money for the cause, we're delighted to announce that it is simply NOT ENOUGH for Harry, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall, as they've decided to continue fundraising efforts of their own to help all those in far worse circumstances than those facing us!

But they want input from the fans, too!

Ch-ch-check out the video to see how you can do your part (above)!

President Obama's Inauguration Speech Encourages Equality, Fairness, Acceptance As The Means To Peace & Prosperity! WATCH HERE!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspirationBarack ObamaPerezTV

Our heart swelled while watching President Obama's inauguration speech.

Not only did the President touch upon important issues such as poverty, economy, democracy, international relations, healthcare, conflict, climate change, and equal rights, he also emphasized the fact that only through COMMUNAL effort can we begin to address some of the problems involved in the aforementioned topics.

Obama urged Americans to set aside petty, superficial differences to ensure a peaceful future for our children…

AND he is the first president to EVER address gay rights during an inaugural speech!

We are an awe-inspiring country despite prevalent intolerance, greed, and selfishness. Imagine what we could achieve if we appreciated and loved one another as HUMAN BEINGS?!

Listen to Obama's wise words (above) and then ponder over some insightful excerpts …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

One Direction Gets SLAMMED For Ghana Visit!

Filed under: Etc.One Direction

One Direction VIsits Ghana Gets Slammed For Comments

While many saw One Direction’s recent charity trip to Ghana as an act of kindness, others viewed it as an inaccurate depiction of their country!

We previously showed you the pic of 1D in Ghana and told you about group member Niall Horan’s tweet, which stated his realization that poverty is indeed VERY real.

Now it looks like Niall’s tweet didn’t quite go over so well with the country’s celebrities, who interpreted it as him saying ALL of Ghana is impoverished.

One Ghanaian actress, Ama K. Abebrese, blasted off tweets to Niall, which read:

One Direction Visit Ghana, Niall Horan Realizes Poverty Exists

Hoh man…

Cheeky musical quintet One Direction took a sneaky, secret visit to an impoverished region of Ghana a few days ago as part of the UK's Red Nose Day/Comic Relief effort, which helps raise money to alleviate poverty…

And not only did the boyband members enjoy their trip — where they also filmed scenes for a Comic Relief music video cover of Blondie's One Way or Another — it seems the dudes also learned a thing or two about the state of the world!

Nice!

In fact, the band's newest legal driver Niall Horan apparently had an "a ha" moment, as evidenced by his tweet:

Awww Niall! SO cute in the most naive sort of way!

Niall's "life changing" experience even caused him to

Holy SHIZ!

It has been so long, we really were beginning to doubt that we'd ever see this day come!

But it's HAPPENED, Joss Whedon fans!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer AND her beloved Angel are BACK TOGETHER!

Well, sort of! And they both get brownie points because it's for a good cause!

But series stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz were both present at the Santa's Secret Workshop event at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood this weekend, which benefited El Lay Family Housing, which provides support services for families attempting to transition out of homelessness and poverty!

And while our SMG decided to leave her hubby and children at home, the Bones star brought along his wife Jamie Bergman and their two kids!

Ch-ch-check 'em out (above and below)!

SO wonderful! Such a good cause!

And it must have nice for them to see each other again, years after fighting the evils of the Hellmouth and now both with families of their own!

Hope you all had an AMAZING time!
