Y@ Speak: Roll out the red carpet edition

Posted By on Mon, Feb 25, 2013 at 12:49 PM


This week's Y@ Speak celebrates the famous and infamous, from corrupt local politicians to actual celebrities. A red carpet-caliber media presence greeted former Mayor Ray Nagin at his federal court appearance Wednesday, and then the real red carpet rolled out for the 2013 Academy Awards — which prompted the adorable Quvenzhane Wallis to be the subject of both positive and negative attention. Don't mess with Hushpuppy, y'all. Feel free to mess with Nagin.

Y@ Speak 2/18-24
