Saturday Night Live ads Leslie Jones as an official new cast member

"Saturday Night Live" has promoted writer and sometimes "Weekend Update" guest Leslie Jones to a cast member. NBC confirmed the news to HuffPost Entertainment after Deadline.com broke the story. Jones and the show tweeted their excitement.  Jones has been a staff writer on the show since early 2014 and was one of 12 finalists for a cast spot that ended up going to Sasheer Zamata last year. Since joining "SNL," she's appeared in memorable "Weekend Update" segments, including a controversial bit on slavery last May. She'll start as a cast member this week, on Oct. 25 when Jim Carrey hosts. Jones has also appeared in "The League," "Workaholics" and "Top Five," which comes out in December.

"SNL" Season 40 began just a few weeks ago and added two new cast members, Pete Davidson and Michael Che, who was promoted from writer to "Weekend Update" anchor.

Black Enterprise Magazine Interview at The Breakfast Club Power 105.1

Alfred Edmonds and Sirita Wright of Black Enterprise magazine visited Power 105.1 fm in NYC to do an interview with the infamous Breakfast Club.  The information given during this interview was wealth itself.  I like the fact that they gave prime examples of african-american men and women who are billionaires and owners of top influential companies that you may have never heard of. The youth of today need to seek out more publications such as Black Enterprise to outweigh their belief that the only way to prosper is to become an athlete or rapper and to show them that there are other job markets to become successful in. Watch for great info and of course the usual shenanigans of the Breakfast Club crew!

 Happy Friday, "Murder" lovers: "How To Get Away With Murder" has gotten a full season order from ABC.
The Shonda Rhimes-produced drama will now officially air 15-episodes. According to Deadline, the smaller order (a typical full season would be 22-episodes) comes from star Viola Davis' deal with the network, which intends to leave time for her to pursue feature projects. Such arrangements are common for film stars attached to small screen series.
Since its first episode, "Murder" has been a huge ratings success. It is the biggest 10 p.m. drama debut for Adults 18-49 in two years.
Listen closely, and you can hear the sounds of millions of Thursday night calendars being cleared.

Technology is moving forward so quickly that sometimes it is hard for consumers to keep up with the latest advancements. A gadget is highly likely to become obsolete in terms of performance and functionality in about one year after its launch. “So what does the future of smartphones look like? “ you may ask. Taiwanese electronics company Polytron may have a clue. They have released some preliminary images of their proposed transparent smartphone prototype. Reported to be functional, but lacking an operating system, it gives an indication of possibilities for the future. As this is one of their first prototypes, a much more refined version should be ready by the end of this year. Check out the details in the videos and photos down the page.

Serena Williams Impersonation: Is Caroline Wozniacki's Imitation Of The Tennis Star Racist?

Serena Williams' assets became the focus of a mid-game prank by tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki. Stuffing both her chest and shorts with padding, Wozniacki pranced out onto the court mid-game to the guffaws of the crowd. Serena wasn't there. Caroline went on to lose to her opponent, Maria Sharapova.
The reactions to this joke have been mixed. Yahoo Sports called the impression, "hilarious" and noted, "The likeness to Serena, you'll surely agree, is uncanny."
On Tumblr, bloggers weren't so happy about it. One blogger adding:
...this isn’t “harmless fun” as one article described it. its racist. out and outright racism. mocking and making fun of the bodies of black women for a laugh? real funny, stupid white girl. real real funny.
So a white woman can do something like this, but Serena Williams can’t crip walk to celebrate a victory? Wozniacki stuffed her bra and underwear so that she could appear like Serena. It may have been done in “jest,” but I love how people can can turn a black woman’s body and sexuality into a caricature. However, we should not have the autonomy to celebrate any successes of our own.
Check out some responses on  Twitter:

 yes... the legacy of the Hottentot Venus. This is an old racist trope about our supposed hypersexuality and sexual abnormality.

 Even as champions, all that matters is the deviation of our sexual organs from the white standard and that we are hot to trot.
commenter on Youtube was kind enough to provide Woznaicki with some helpful advice, saying, "Maybe if she imitated Serena's actual tennis, she'd win a little more." Very helpful.
Black women's bodies, in game of tennis, have been a topic of controversy and discussion before. Just this year, Taylor Townsend, the top-ranking junior tennis player in the world, was under the microscope for her shape and size, after the USTA tried to deny her access to a tournament because of her weight.

This isn't even the first time Serena's body has been mocked on the tennis world's stage. Wozniacki has already done this once last year, that time dancing out onto the court to a Rihanna song.

Jay-Z Documentary: 'Where I'm From' Shows Rise Of Barclays Center (VIDEO)

Life+Times, Jay-Z's culture website, posted a 24-minute documentary about the rise of the Barclays Center. The video takes viewers behind the scenes of his run at the new Brooklyn venue. It's replete with admiring angles of Jay, his DJ and engineer Young Guru and the rest of the Roc Boys rehearsing for the big shows, but otherwise doesn't reveal much in the way of new information.

Highlights include Guru rapping Jay's "Run This Town" verse as the latter walks the arena in advance of the first show (around 13:50), Beyonce's appearance at the 15-minute mark (she's spotted walking just behind Jay as he makes his way to the stage) and Jay taking the subway just like a normal person and starting a near-riot (shouts to the lady who asked him if he's famous). Notably absent? Beyonce performing, as she did on night eight of the run.

Jay turned 43 on Tuesday, making it a fitting day to release the documentary. Mr. Carter isn't the only one getting a close-up: His wife Beyonce is the subject of a self-directed documentary that will debut in February on HBO. (Jay executive produced his documentary.)
