It's Finally Time (Again)

For a Black Pope

2/11/2013 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ Live


Celebs are buzzing about Pope Benedict XVI stepping down -- and about the fact the next Pontiff could be ... BLACK! Is this the final frontier for minorities everywhere -- and would Catholics around the world embrace the change?

Plus, Rihanna and Chris Brown had some high times after the Grammys, and we got the video! Witnesses say they were smoking weed in a nightclub ... which is one thing, but driving home after is another.

And, supermodel Miranda Kerr's breast controversy! Okay, that's a slight exaggeration -- but she did unwittingly expose a surprising truth about her body ... and her bras.

(0:00) Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down -- and there's a chance the next Pope could be Black! The big question ... how would Catholics react?
(7:00) Charlie Sheen pleads with alleged murderer Christopher Dorner ... call me.
(10:00) Chris Brown ... allegedly smokes weed at a club then drives home ... and gets into a wreck this weekend and blames paparazzi. It never stops with this guy.
(14:15) Are all the James Bonds going to make an appearance at the Oscars? Not likely ... because Pierce Brosnan hints that he's not on board.
(18:00) Lil Wayne is being sued by a guy who says someone in the rapper's entourage hit him with a skateboard -- the alleged victim calls in to state his case. 
(24:00) Jamie Foxx says Black people are the most talented people on Earth ... so what would happen if a white guy would've said it?
(26:00) A "Buckwild" star is arrested in a crazy drug bust.
(32:00) Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may buy properties all over the world -- not even our Kardashian sympathizer (Mike) thinks it's a good idea.
(34:00) Miranda Kerr's boobs look wayyyyyyy bigger in a fancy bra. Is nothing as it seems anymore?
(36:00) The floor is yours!
(40:00) Christie Brinkley is PISSED OFF at people for ripping her daughter Alexa Ray Joel's changing look.

I am going to be watching Lois and Clark on the WB online today not TMZ Live. But wanted to say hi to the other people that come here everyday. 90s shows are awesome.

"Is this the final frontier for minorities?"
I'll answer that completely absurd question, if you answer these:
How many "American-born" Kenyans were
on The Nina, The Pinta, and The Santa Maria?
How many Muslims, Wiccans, or Atheists, were
at the First Thanksgiving?

Well good weed tends to soften violent moods unlike cocaine and liquor. She looked beautiful in her gown last night. I hope he treats her better, more loving, going forward.

I am not liking today's line-up but I am interested in what celebs have to say about the Pope's abdication.

Maybe I'll just come back tomorrow and skip to it.

Oh, so Common thinks a black Pope should be elected. Hmm... A lot of people think that, too. Or a Latin American pontiff.

And I love how the LAPD predators are now the prey! Now they know how regular folk feel!

Happy Monday, fellow posters!
Harvey, why is it a race issue who will be the next Pope? The most qualified should be elected, not what color skin he has. Enough of race issues already.

You can't have a black pope, you'll have to nail everything down in the Vatican, and not only that he'll want to pimp out the pope mobile so he can look good on drive bys for shizzle.....

Yeah, let's have a black Pope because the black President has worked out so well - NOT!

This is BY FAR the dumbest thing ever brought up on TMZ. Really Harvey? Have a black Pope because they have a big PR problem? GMAFB. How about a Pope who is most qualified. Hey! There's an idea... UGH

"Follow" a black Pope? Catholics don't really "follow" the Pope. It's not like the new Pope is going to change the core beliefs of the Catholic Church.

@Sidebar: First you must realize, some in "America" have made great gains by fostering and exploiting
racial-divison. Qualifications, mean absolutely nothing
to many (See: U.S. Pharaoh). Take a hard-look at our
once Godly-blessed nation, from Delaware to Hattiesburg, to Southern California...and the year, is just beginning.
