A Homeless Kid Is the Valedictorian of His Class . . . and the Internet Is Raising Thousands of Dollars for His College Fund

18-year-old Griffin Furlong of Jacksonville, Florida lost his mom to leukemia when he was six. And for two years, he lived in a homeless shelter with his father and two brothers.

They moved into a house when he was in sixth grade, but never had much money. And recently they became homeless again.

But after all that, Griffin is graduating high school next week . . . as the VALEDICTORIAN. Then he’s headed to Florida State to study civil engineering.

Despite his grades, he hasn’t been able to get a scholarship, only grants. Which won’t be enough to cover his tuition, books, food, and housing. But Griffin says he’ll manage somehow, and that he does it all for his mom.

Luckily, someone set up a fundraising page for him last week on GoFundMe.com. And since then, over $50,000 has been donated for his college fund. If you want to donate, go to GoFundMe.com and search for “Homeless Valedictorian.”
Here’s a picture of Griffin with his girlfriend.

“Kimye” wedding finally happened..

picsource: eonline


“KIMYE” aka KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST got married in Florence, Italy on Saturday, at a landmark called the Forte di Belvedere, which overlooks the city. E! Online says the wedding cost around $2.8 million.

The festivities actually began Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. LANA DEL REY was there to perform live.

During the dinner, Kanye reportedly commented about all the talented people in the room. Kim remarked that there were also a lot of BEAUTIFUL people, to which Kanye replied, quote, “Yeah, but Kim’s way more beautiful than I am talented.”

(Figures it would matter to Kim how beautiful the people at her wedding are. It’s sad, and gross and pathetic and infuriating all at the same time.)

But she wasn’t the only performer on hand that weekend.

During the ceremony, ANDREA BOCELLI sang “Con te Partiro” as Kim walked down the aisle. She was escorted by her stepfather BRUCE JENNER. Walking in front of them was KRIS JENNER with Kim and Kanye’s daughter North.

They made The Big Mistake in front of a huge wall of flowers, kind of like the one Kanye gave Kim for Mother’s Day. A source says the vows were, quote, “intimate and spoken softly.” But don’t worry, Kanye would have his say later.

At the reception, guests sat at a 224-foot marble table overlooking the Florence skyline. The menu included chicken, steak, salmon and pasta . . . followed by a seven-foot wedding cake.

There were about 200 guests, including Common, Jaden Smith, magician David Blaine, rapper Tyga, Brittny Gastineau, “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen, Serena Williams, Scottie Pippen, Carmelo and Lala Anthony, Q-Tip and “Girls Gone Wild” scumbag Joe Francis.

BEYONCÉ and JAY Z were NO SHOWS. They reportedly spent the weekend in the Hamptons.

But Beyoncé posted a picture of Kim, Kanye and North on Instagram, along with the caption, “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
The couple’s first dance was to a mashup of Etta James’ “At Last” and Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine” and “Tenderness” . . . which culminated in some live rapping by Kanye.

They also danced to JOHN LEGEND’S “All of Me” . . . which Legend performed LIVE. BIG SEAN also reportedly took the mic at some point.

Kris Jenner made a, quote, “big, emotional speech” . . . but Kanye topped her with a 20 MINUTE SPEECH in which he called the Kardashian family, quote, “the most remarkable people of our time.” He added that they can, quote, “make the world a better place.”

He also rambled about being famous . . . quote, “I am defined by being a celebrity . . . the world is our altar.”

He added, quote, “They feel like it’s okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an ‘SNL’ spoof. We don’t negotiate. We’re not like that. We’re not stupid.”

Kim and Kanye are now off on a mini-honeymoon somewhere in Europe without their daughter North. They’re expected to attend the wedding of Kanye’s stylist next weekend in Prague.

Senior Student Almost Banned From Graduation Walk For Yearbook Quote

pic source: gawker.com

“When the going gets tough, just remember to Barium Carbon Potassium Thorium Astatine Arsenic Sulfer Utranium Phospheros.”

This was the quote that almost got Paris Gray banned from being able to walk the stage, or do her speech in her High School graduation. Because what it really says is: When the going gets tough, just remember to back that a$$ up.

Although clever, she did fail to use spell-check…twice: It’s Sulfur, not Sulfer…and Uranium, not Utranium.

Despite her wit and spelling-oversight, she will not be banned from being able to do her speech or walk after all.

We must admit, we were impressed….until… (Karli) caught the misspelled words.

Here’s the full story:

Voyeur: A person who obtains sexual pleasure or excitement from the observation of someone undressing, having intercourse, etc

Social Media Voyeur: A person who obtains pleasure or excitement from the observation of other peoples posts, pictures, (inlcuding selfies), etc, on Social Media!

Social Media Ghost: A disgrace to humanity. A person that should be spanked in the face. (Disclaimer for all the uptight-easily-offended people of the world: This is a jake, not meant to be  taken out of context or thrown out of proportion.)

Most people won’t admit it, but lets face it: Social Media is a hub for narcism and stupidity!  And with that comes people who get a kick out of watching said acts: Social Media Voyeurism.  Another form of Social Media Voyeurism is being a Social Media Ghost… Yes, the ones who are on FaceBook ALL day long, knows what EVERYONE is up to, knows who left who, who is dating who, and who changed their status from single to complicated, etc… however, they NEVER like or comment on ANYTHING! (You are a disgrace to this self-entitled-narcisistic generation! Slap yourself, please.)

Ok! Now that that’s off the Mornings Shows chest…go check-in! #WeLoveYou

I’m about to get married and I have this beautiful new little girl with me.” Fimbres stated while introducing her step-daughter Miley to the crowd.  “I’ve gotten to do some amazing things with Danity Kane, but it’s time for me to start the next chapter in my life,” she continued.

Thursday, the Carter-Knowles family addressed this matter jointly in statement released to Associated Press. It states;

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”It continues stating;

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

The employee that sold the footage, reportedly was paid $250,000 to release the video to TMZ has been fored. More details to come as the story continues to grow legs.
