Suicide Caught on WebCam

Posted by Bossip Staff

Abraham Biggs threatened suicide before, but finally went through with it live on the web:

A college student committed suicide by taking a drug overdose in front of a live webcam as some computer users egged him on, others tried to talk him out of it, and another messaged OMG in horror when it became clear it was no joke. Some watchers contacted the Web site to notify police, but by the time officers entered Abraham Biggs’ home, a scene also captured on the Internet, it was too late.

Biggs, a 19-year-old Broward College student who suffered from what his family said was bipolar disorder, or manic depression, lay dead on his bed in his father’s Pembroke Pines house Wednesday afternoon, the camera still running 12 hours after Biggs announced his intentions online around 3 a.m.

It was unclear how many people watched it unfold.

Biggs was not the first person to commit suicide with a webcam rolling. But the drawn-out drama and the reaction of those watching was seen as an extreme example of young people’s penchant for sharing intimate details about themselves over the Internet.

Biggs’ family was infuriated that no one acted sooner to save him, neither the viewers nor the Web site that hosted the live video, Justin.tv. The Web site shows a video image, with a space alongside where computer users can instantly post comments.

No doubt, this is a d@mn shame, and we can sympathize with the family about their loss. However, with regard to making cyber threats on one’s own life, the point at which other people need to step in is, at best, vague.

Where does the responsibility for this young man’s untimely death lie?

Akon and Timbaland got it in last night to celebrate the release of his new album, “Freedom,” at Karu and Y in Miami. Humor us by filling in the blank for the hooded fella.

No doubt, we know who got 90% of the looks in the Kardashian family. But, if you had to make a tough decision and give the other 10% to either Kourtney (middle), or Khloe, which one would you give it to?

LL Cool J and Family Do Cirque du Soleil

Posted by Bossip Staff

LL Cool J and his family were at in downtown NY to see the Cirque du Soleil’s “Wintuk” performance.

Now, that is a good looking black family and it’s great to see them together. We sure are glad LL Cool J hasn’t given in to any those “temptations,” that we know of.

Saturday Style

Posted by Bossip Staff

Malinda Williams and Russell Simmons hit up the 2nd Annual Sunflower Children Poker Fundraiser in NY last night.

We would have said she was stylin’ this Saturday, but then we glanced at the purple leggings with sparkles on them…tragic. We have to know how Bossipers feel: is she stylin’ this Saturday, or not so much?

Who Should Play the First Black Bond?

Posted by Bossip Staff

Looks like both Jamie Foxx and Diddy are interested in playing the historical role.

Current star Daniel Craig recently suggested it could be time for the first black Bond in the wake of Barack Obama’s election as the first African-American president in U.S. history. Asked by U.S. news show Access Hollywood whether he would like to play Bond, he says, “Of course! I’d put a little swing in it. A little hip-hop, you know. Maybe not drinking martinis, but drinking some Hennessey maybe. Bond would drink dark liquor.” And Foxx admits he has already received backing to take on the coveted role. He adds, “I was in London and I had to give an award to Daniel Craig? and I went up and said, ‘Bond. Black Bond.’ And everybody just lost it… Black Bond would be cool.”

At the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards Diddy also put his bid in for the role. “One day the time will come for a black Bond and hopefully I can audition for it. It’s a dream of mine to play a great role like that.”

Obama’s the president. Beyonce wants to be Wonder Woman, and now the next Bond might just be black. We smell a mutiny.

In the meantime, WHO SHOULD PLAY THE FIRST BLACK BOND?

Keri Hilson With Lil’ Wayne: Turning Me On

Posted by Bossip Staff

Check out Keri Hilson’s latest track and video and she is looking cute, as always. Polow the Don produced this song, without Rich Boi on it, surprise, but we’re sure there will be some room for him on the remix.

What do Bossipers think of her newest track?

Between the almondy NBA superstar, Carmelo Anthony, or the milk chocolate crooner, Tyrese, which one of these fellows do you think is packin’ enough to make a sister seriously consider celibacy?

Clifford takes the stand in this video and tells what happened that night his best friend/assistant was murdered. Tip is very lucky it was not him that was killed; because like he says in the testimony, they were trying to kill him.

Obama Picks ‘Shady Hillary’ as Secretary of State

Posted by Bossip Staff

We thought your boy Barack could do no wrong but…

President-elect Obama plans to name Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) as his secretary of State shortly after Thanksgiving, two senior Obama aides said.

The officials said they expect her to accept. Clinton aides had no comment.

The choice unites the two rivals in the most protracted presidential primary in American history, giving Obama the “Team of Rivals” Cabinet he had promised. Former President Bill Clinton authorized unprecedented disclosures about his finances to Obama’s vetting team, and transition lawyers are satisfied, officials said.

We are starting to feel all these Clinton-related cabinet picks are a little suspect coming from a CHANGE ticket. You already have the keys to the White House, shake some sh*t up, there are qualified people outside of the shady Clinton Democratic establishment. Those Clintons will probably sell you out for a half of piece of silver. SMH.

This Looks Supsect

Posted by Bossip Staff

Rumor has it that Mr. Thriller here has converted to Islam, and to us that sounds suspect as hell:

MICHAEL JACKSON has become a Muslim – and changed his name to Mikaeel. The skint superstar, 50, donned Islamic garb to pledge allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a pal’s mansion in Los Angeles, The Sun can reveal. Jacko sat on the floor wearing a tiny hat after an Imam was summoned to officiate – days before the singer is due to appear at London’s High Court where he is being sued by an Arab sheik. A source told last night how Jacko, brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness, decided to convert as he used a studio at the home of his chum to record a new album. The star – whose hits include The Way You Make Me Feel – was spotted looking “a bit down” by a producer and a songwriter who had both embraced Islam.

Mike says he can’t fly overseas to deal with that lawsuit and that is why he was looking down. Either that, or the fact that the little boys he is always hunting require him to look down, if you get what we mean.
