Taye Diggs’ Favorite Song From ‘Rent’ Is ‘I’ll Cover You’

0
Before Taye Diggs was following you (and everyone else) on Twitter, the actor had a home on the Great White Way, starring in the original production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical "Rent." And while Diggs' character Benny is featured on some of the show's most celebrated songs -- "La Vie Boheme," anyone?! -- there's one tune in particular the "Murder In The First" star wishes his character sang. "My favorite is probably 'I'll Cover You,'" he told HuffPost Live in a Tuesday conversation. "Jonathan Larson [the show's lyricist and creator], he outdid himself on that one. That's the one where I wish I had a higher voice so I could really just dig at it." Diggs first joined ...

Giving Thanks: Three Lessons I Lived As a Single Mother

0
I didn't really get that there was a stigma about being a single mom until I worked in corporate America. When it finally hit me that some people viewed single mothers through a different lens, I had been raising my daughter alone for about seven years. Growing up in the inner city of Philadelphia, being raised in a single parent home didn't make you stand out. In fact, before my parents divorced, I was an anomaly among my friends: their fathers didn't live at home with them. Living with just your mom or being raised by your grandmother was common. And it was normal that your father lived somewhere else...

College Baseball Player Kicked Off Team For Tasteless Tweet About Mo’ne Davis

A college baseball player committed an error on social media that cost him a place on his team. First baseman Joey Casselberry was booted off the Bloomsburg University team after calling 13-year-old Little League phenom Mo'ne Davis a "slut" on Twitter, Associated Press reported. And he will remain off the squad even though Davis wrote the school an email asking that he be reinstated, TMZ reported. "Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance," she told ESPN in the interview above. But the school held firm, saying the player had violated school policy. Casselberry tweeted in reaction to a report that the Disney Channel was planning a biopic about Davis, the first girl to pitch her ...

Jeb Bush Invokes Baltimore Protests In Presidential Campaign Kickoff

WASHINGTON -- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) brought up the recent protests in Baltimore during his presidential campaign kickoff speech Monday, using them as a call for education reform around the country. “In government, if we get a few big things right, we can make life better for millions of people, especially for kids in public schools," said Bush during his rally at Miami-Dade College. "Think of what we all watched not long ago in Baltimore, where so many young adults are walking around with no vision of a life beyond the life they know. It’s a tragedy played out over and ...

I Am Black. Rachel Dolezal Is Not.

By now, most everyone on and off social media has heard about Rachel Dolezal, the white former NAACP leader in Spokane, Washington, who has been publicly misrepresenting herself as a black woman for nearly a decade, and issued her resignation statement today in which she is decidedly evasive and resolutely non-apologetic. Since the story broke late last week, when her estranged white birth parents came forward with the claim that their daughter is "Caucasian by birth," there have been the predictable influx of think pieces -- among the exceptional are those from the Guardian, by my colleague Steven Thrasher, and by Adam Serwer for BuzzFeed -- and ...
