Chicago-born singer Dodie Stevens was only 13 years old when she found herself launched into stardom when her single, “Pink Shoe Laces,” landed on the Billboard Hot 100, eventually peaked at #3 and sold over one million copies back in 1959. Dodie…
As a new Ensign, I was assigned duty at the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC, and carpooled to work with a veteran Marine sergeant. One afternoon,
I showed him a pair of brown shoes I had purchased to go with my khaki uniform. He examined the leather carefully. “Let me take these home,” he said,
“and I’ll show you a real Marine Corps shine.”
The next day I wore my old shoes, expecting to switch them with the ones the sergeant was polishing. From a grocery bag, Sarge pulled out the right
shoe, shining like glass. “This is the way a Marine shines a shoe,” he said. “Now all you have to do is polish the left one to look like it.”

If anyone deserves adequate amounts of respect to be put on their name it is J. Cole. Rumor has it Puma is looking to sign the lyricist to a sneaker deal.
As spotted on Complex Jermaine might be the newest member of the apparel giant’s celebrity endorsees. At a recent press junket Cole was spotted on stage with Usain Bolt, Cara Delevigne and Adriana Lima. The track and field legend’s caption read “Puma Family”.
If the tweet didn’t serve as the official tipping point to the speculation Clyde Edwards, Puma’s Senior Marketing Manager, also hinted to the “MIDDLE CHILD” rapper joining the team by saying “The ROC is in the building”.
The move wouldn’t be too much of a stretch as the North Carolina MC is managed by Roc Nation and Jay-Z has a shoe deal with Puma. Additionally Hov’s close friend and frequent collaborator Emory Jones has worked with the German based brand on several occasions. Nor J. Cole or his representatives have yet to confirm or deny the deal.

Things have escalated between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. The beef is sizzling with word that the two rappers got into an altercation at a New York Fashion Week party while word is Rah Ali tried to put hands on Cardi.
According to TMZ, it went down at the Harper’s BAZAAR Icons party for NYFW at the Plaza Hotel. Cardi B reportedly stepped to Nicki but security intervened. Apparently, that’s when Cardi took off her shoe and hurled it at Nicki.
She was then escorted out by security, while rocking only one shoe. Of course, there is footage (post-altercation, though).
But wait, there’s more. It seems that reality star Rah Ali (who we would never want any smoke with) was part of Nicki’s entourage, and was desperately seeking to bless Cardi with the fade. Again, there is footage.
It seems like Rah Ali managed to steal on Cardi since it looks like the Bronx rapper caught a mean speed knot above her left eye.
Afterwards, Cardi took to Instagram to explain it was Nicki talking about her newborn baby, Kulture, that set her off.
“I’ve let a lot of sh*t slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me …But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f*ckin off!!,” read part of her message on Instagram
Yes, Twitter is lit with the commentary.
The tea is scorching and this story is still developing. Peep the best reactions in the gallery below.

David Clarke, the former Milwaukee County Sheriff and opponent of Black Lives Matter, has taken a position with a political action committee in support of President Donald Trump. The America First Action PAC announced the hire Tuesday, this after chatter that Clarke was set to join the Trump administration earlier this year.
The Hill reports:
America First Action praised the former sheriff’s career in law enforcement in a statement announcing his new role as its senior advisor and spokesman.
“David Clarke is an American patriot, and we are very proud to welcome him to America First,” the group’s president, Brian O. Walsh, said.
“Having spent a lifetime in law enforcement — protecting and serving his community and fighting for justice and the Second Amendment — Sheriff Clarke doesn’t just believe in making America safe again; he’s devoted his life to it.”
Clarke resigned last week after months of speculation that he may join the Trump administration. In May, Clarke said he had accepted a job in the Department of Homeland Security but reportedly retracted his acceptance of the position in June.
Clarke said he’s going to use the position to shine more shoes, excuse us, push Trump’s agenda of making America great again, or whatever that slogan was.
