Okay, so we may have jumped the gun on what The Dream’s tweets meant the other day—or either he’s trying to do serious damage control. Christina Milian seemed like the likely target of a series of tweets the singer/songwriter sent out earlier this week that alluded to a certain person being a has-been, gold digger, and seeking 15 minutes of fame. He also said almost the same thing he told a radio station about the situation with the mother of one of his children who put him on blast about his parenting skills, which is, if I had a problem with someone I’d pick up the phone and call. But now The Dream says the tweets weren’t directed at Christina but a random Twitter follower, and he’s also decided to quit Twitter personally because of the misunderstanding. Hmm.
Here’s the long message he sent out over Twitter:
“I just figured out people are attaching twitter things to someone yesterday. Actually I was answering a Fan openly like I always do but excluded their Name. So I’m sincerely Sorry if anyone was offended. Christina is a Good Parent and a Great role model.
Just got back on twitter since yesterday had I known I was being watched by the feds I would’ve put more thought that people would attach Any problems I have I call and discuss them and I desire the same. Didn’t know I was even important enough to be discussed. Its Sad I think People Love Tension and I won’t be playing this Game esp when a innocent child is involved.
This is why i argue to keep my Childrens lives as private as I can. Because the only people who actually care and should care are the people who made you..its a Mean World Can’t control what Christina Does all I can say is I wish her well and pray that in time we will heal. Because this helps no one. Love Always. Again sorry for the misleading info…. Even though I never attached her name or uttered her name in a Demeaning way. The truth is… Is all things need Time.
I have no strife with Christina for I know this life is To Long sometimes you fight those u love most. I’m sure none of what I’ve written that actually has a Name attached will get noticed. lol
I apologize 4 the Misunderstanding I’m way to blessed for that.Fasting on Negativity nothing but positive quotes will come from here, as I see my Voice is pretty loud these days lol
In order to protect people I love and care about I will not be using Twitter personally from now to infinity. Thank you all for your support. Over the years. Love you all Soooo much. And this move deff isn’t from Fear but more about Growth and responsibility. I need to me a Man and More responsible Period. I am Smart and even though with all the confidence in the world when it comes to Familu even I can be affected….
Trust Me I don’t DOUBT for one Minute that I am Not a GOOD MAN and have been to others. I know who I am and how hard I have worked. I truly Love you all and all the great personal conversations we have had. Ill miss u from my Day to Day but I’m sure everyone willUnderstand. This is a Small sacrifice. leave u with this only god is to be Everywhere at all times.
I don’t know, I think he might be backtracking on the Christina shade, but more power to him for trying to be a more responsible man. Let’s see how long this Twitter hiatus lasts.
What do you think, was The Dream really talking about Christina or a random fan?

This picture alone is the main reason why I wanted to post this story. Because this picture right here, lets you know that this lady is not working with a full set of marbles. New Jersey mother, Patricia Krentcil, is accused of taking her five year old daughter to a tanning salon. The girl showed up a school with a severe burn. But her parents claimed it was a sun burn she got playing outside.
Check out the story below.
Patricia told reporters, ”I tan. She doesn’t tan… I’m not going to bring my little daughter into a 90 degree bed. I mean that’s… (points to her head) not normal.” Patricia, you know what else is not normal looking like you’re donning blackface for a minstrel show. I can’t say whether or not Patricia took her daughter into a tanning bed but I do know that she should really lighten up.
On another note, I’m kind of surprised that Patricia’s story is getting national attention, when the mothers on Toddler and Tiaras do far more things to their children in the name of beauty and competition.
Do you think this mother took her daughter into the tanning bed? Should she and other mothers be charged for this type of behavior?

Imagine almost losing your life for commenting to a complete stranger that their choice in discipline may not be the best. Lefenus Pickett could have just as well been anyone of us on June 18 last year as he boarded a Philadelphia Septa bus and shortly after, witnessed 20 year-old Penny Chapman spanking her son when he started to run up and down the bus. After Pickett complained and referenced that Chapman was “abusing” her son, he then said he witnessed an offended Chapman call someone on her cell phone, and when the bus stopped on Cecil B. Moore Avenue, she was escorted off of the bus and two men armed with weapons proceeded to shoot into the bus 13 times. The bus driver sped from the scene and amazingly none of the passengers were hurt.
Unfortunately, this is the reason that many of us choose to say nothing when we witness parents who choose to broadcast their obvious lack of parenting skills in public for the world to witness. We question if it’s really any of our business, we want to avoid confrontation or we foolishly believe that if we haven’t had the opportunity to parent ourselves, we obviously don’t know any better than those who in many instances didn’t plan on becoming parents themselves. It truly does take a village to raise a child. Most of us had parents or parental figures when we were children and have enough of a frame of reference to know who deserves to be “Mother-Of-The Year” and who needs to be meeting with child services.
We’ve all seen it at least once. And while I don’t partake in social work as a hobby, I must say that it turns my stomach when I see a mother proceed to cuss and demean her child, kicking him while he is on the ground crying because she’s upset that he keeps pestering her to buy a dollar toy (which I actually have witnessed). If a child’s own parent isn’t even protecting them, you have to wonder who is. So I am calling out trifling parents everywhere and letting them know that their behavior will no longer be tolerated. Hopefully none of the traits below apply to you, and if they do, there’s no better time to make a change.
We’re not talking about the “ghetto parenting” controversy that a Chicago Sun-Times columnist started a few weeks ago, but the little things that make moms less than perfect, and yes, human.
