Mos Def Is Changing His Name!

Filed under: Music Minute

Mos Def Dante Smith Yasiin

Like those before him, Mos Def is retiring his stage name for a new one.

But this name change isn't just for the sake of restlessness.

It's for religion.

Born as Dante Smith, the rapper/actor coverted to Islam as a teenager.

More in tune with his spiritual beliefs now we assume, he says he's not for "any moniker or separation between the self that I see and know myself as."

So as soon as the infamous year of 2012 rolls around, you can start calling him

Angelina Speaks Out On Proposed Quran Burnings!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooAngelina Jolie

We're glad she's speaking out against something so disgusting and shameful!

Angelina Jolie is currently overseas in Pakistan, attempting to bring awareness to the devastation caused by flooding in Pakistan and rally relief efforts, but she took the time today to also shed light on another issue - the disgusting display of hate and bigotry from a Florida church that wants to burn the Quran in 'honor' of September 11th!

This, of course, is the latest act of bullshiz from Pastor Terry Jones and his psychotic evangelical church, the Dove World Outreach Center.

Angie said on the matter:

“I have hardly the words that somebody would do that to somebody’s religious book."

Agreed 100%! It's positively foul.

We sincerely hope that someone can prevent these psychos from going through with the act before that kind of hatred is put out into the world.

And so sad that people don't even understand why it's so awful and wrong.

But once again, bb, thanks for addressing yet another serious issue! Such an inspiration!

Thoughts??
