Even if you think there is no need for Education in your life, it is good to have friends who think otherwise—have some sort of education.It seems Jermaine Dupri did not have any of two….
According to TMZ, the Hip Hop mogul Jermaine Dupri says his bank wined-and-dined him, then treated him like an uneducated idiot in a plot to snatch millions of dollars from him
Jermaine Dupri bank-Sun Trust Bank sued the So So Def founder first, claiming he defaulted on a $5 million loan. The bank wanted $2 million for the balance plus interest … AND his entire EMI music catalog.
Now, Dupri is firing back with a counter lawsuit … and in the docs, he says he secured a $5 million loan in 2009 with his ST personal banker — a man he’d worked with for years, who was lenient on loan payments and hooked him up with swag: ATL Falcons tickets, dinners, and more.
Then, in 2010 Dupri claims his personal banker took advantage of his lack of education (he didn’t finish high school) and told him he had to quickly sign a NEW loan agreement, assuring him it was for his benefit.
But Dupri says in fact the new terms increased his loan payments without his knowledge. As a result … he defaulted, and had to sell off his music catalog and his studio to settle with the bank.
This ain’t chump change on the line — according to JD his studio was worth $2.5 million, and his catalog … $20 million!
What a mess! Education has a place everywhere, even if you are not going to work in the office…
R&B Singer-Kelly Rowland is the cover girl of Essence Magazine-September Issue.

I’m seeing all these wonderful things happen for her and I am happy for her. But I want a path. I want things to pop off for me, too. Not on her level but whatever my level is supposed to be.”
Finding her strength — literally — has been key to blazing new trails, the X-Factor judge tells ESSENCE. Through workouts with trainer Jeanette Jenkins and sparring sessions with former boxer Martin Snow, she’s finding her power. “I see the beauty in boxing,” she says. “It teaches me strength, physically but mostly mentally. I had to learn my strength, because for so long I could have been tougher than I was.”
In the interview, she also talked about her estranged father, her romantic relationship and her hopes for the future…
Actress-Angelina Jolie, 38, has that perfect body, and she does not have to even try to look elegant…

Looking stylish and sophisticated, Angelina wore an on-trend midi dress, which she teamed with nude heels as she posed at the event.
Beyonce must have been embarrassed—-knowing the sort of perfectionist she strives to be…
Last night, while performing at a show in Montreal, her wig/hair got caught in a spinning fan near the stage.
Even wit the hair caught in the fan, she continued singing while her bodyguard attempted to help her get free.
She took to instagram later on to make a joke out of the whole fan incident, and wrote…
