The Good:

Jussie Smollett is gearing up to grant a lot of Christmas wishes this holiday season as he’s vowed to donate a ton of cash to charity using a percentage of proceeds from his album. Handpicking the charities that sit close by his heart, some of the charities getting a piece of the $125,00 pie include Flint Kids, South Africa Sky Foundation, Trayvon Martin Foundation, Know Your Rights Camp and more.

The news come weeks after he surprised the family of a 6-year-old double amputee with a handicap accessible van!

The Bad:

Jennifer Lopez once sang “love don’t cost a thing,” but some folks are wondering how deep that lyric goes. Rumor has it, her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez is only getting her a picture with a hand-written note for Christmas – something money can’t buy. When Gary spilled the news, Rickey said he enjoys personalized gifts like that because it’s from the heart. Your thoughts?
