Do We Love It!

RICK ROSS "IN COLD BLOOD"
I kind of lost focus when he took off the shirt…y’all know how I feel about that, if not I NEED THE SHIRT AND GLASSES ON AT ALL TIMES.
ANYWAY, "Deeper Than Rap" was released 21 April.

Ne-Yo "Part of the List"

Ne-Yo is one song writer that does no wrong….and to show the most intimate parts in black and white than switching to color just does something to me…LOVE IT!

Black Eyed Peas “Boom Boom Pow”

Song is boring which makes a potential good vid boring…I’m yawning!
Check out WILL.I.AM in the new movie: X-Men Origins:Wolverine

Now you know how I feel so tell me DO YOU LOVE IT?

NEW MUSIC TUESDAY


MY BOY RICK ROSS IS OUT TODAY....GO GET THAT CD OR HEAD OVER TO iTUNES for the download

WAS THIS REALLY CALLED FOR

I promised myself that I would not post anything about Rihanna or Chris Brown that had to do with incident, but I really needed to know if this was called for.

Rihanna was out and about early Monday morning (Sunday night) to celebrate Los Angeles Clipper's Baron Davis 30th B-Day at Club MyHouse along with other celebs like Jessica Alba and Nicole Scherzinger. According to RadarOnline DJ Cobra decided to play the "My Flow So Tight" y'all know the dis song by Jump Smoker. One line states "Chris Brown should get his a$$ kicked." And apparently the crowd "went wild."

Domestic Violence is serious and I don't condone the alleged actions of Chris Brown but no one was writing songs or dissing R.Kelly for sleeping with a child nor did anyone say anything about Suge Knight beating down his girlfriend. What's good for one is good for all!

TWITTER TWITTERTWITTER....ARE YOU TWITTERING?


As a new member of Twitter I'm slowly becoming addicted to it and like many other it's a great way to keep your friends posted on WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

Just recently Ashton Kutcher beat out CNN by becoming the first "Twitter" to reach over a million followers.
As the race began with CNN, Ashton twitted "Tell me this isn't better than watching tv." “Why R they pushing so hard if this doesn’t mean anything? It’s a changing of the guard. the old way the new way,” he wrote, as his followers reported back that CNN was using their live broadcast to seek out new followers. Then our boy went to Ustream.TV which gained him more followers
It was at that point that Kutcher jumped on Ustream.TV, speaking live with his fans who rallied around him.


In other Twitter news, Oprah Winfrey sent her first "tweet" during a taping of her talk show, which said "ASHTON IS NEXT" on 17 April. As she did that she noted that Ashton Kutcher had 1 million follower and beat out CNN, she also spoke to the actor/prankster over Skype.

WTF. Star of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE UP FOR SELL!


"Slumdog Millionaire" actress Rubina Ali was up for sell by her very own father! For the price of $300 grand, he offered up his 9 year old daughter to undercover reporters from Britain's News of the World. According to News of the World journalist who posed as a wealthy Middle Eastern family , Rafig Qureshi(father) said “I have to consider what's best for me, my family and Rubina's future,”

Reported by Reuters:.

“On Sunday, Rubina’s mother, Khurshid, complained to us that her ex-husband was trying to sell her daughter, saying she saw some reports on television to that effect,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Nisar Tamboli told Reuters.

Ali’s family denied they were trying to sell her, Reuters reports.

“We never thought that we would have to face this. We are poor people, for us, our children are everything. Why would we give her away like that?” Rubina’s uncle Moinuddin Qureshi said to the news agency.

In the past, Rafiq Qureshi criticized the “Slumdog” production, claiming that he and his family got nothing from Ali’s role in the movie. That is not accurate: In addition to the salaries for the film, trusts for Ali and for fellow young star Azharuddin Ismail were established. Part of the trust is used to pay their tuition at an English-language school, for emergency medical costs and living expenses, and the remainder of the trusts are available to Ali and Ismail after they turn 18.

On April 16, it was announced that the filmmakers also donated $747,500 to Plan, a international children’s charity. The aim of that donation is to help improve the lives of Mumbai street children. They hope as many as 5,000 kids over the next five years will benefit from the donation.

RECAP! RECAP! RECAP! PT 3

GUYS THE MORE I SIT HERE AND THINK THE MORE I REALIZE I LEFT OUT A WHOLE LOT

I don’t know how I forgot about Solange and Kelly
You know everybody “Tweets” and I have a love hate relationship for it…anyway Solange tweeted about being dropped from her record labe, Geffen, last week by saying :
“stooopiddd iddddiots” rumor control for the day:) I was NOT released from Geffen/Interscope… now back to your regular scheduled program:)
____
check out the statement below:
After intense promotion of her Geffen debut “Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams,” Solange Knowles has reportedly lost her deal with Geffen for a second album! Seen at seemingly every event under-the-sun since August, including both Fashion Rocks and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, Solange Knowles has been busy doing all she can to promote what ended up being her biggest album in terms of attention from mainstream media.
Unfortunately for the Lil Wayne dubbed “Solo,” Geffen Records says it is no longer interested in working with her business-wise due to abysmal sales of her debut which has sold nearly 139,000 copies since its release last August ! While news of Solange’s fate at Geffen is concerning, the way in which her management allegedly tried prevent the split from becoming major news is astonishing.
According to BV Buzz, Destiny’s Child songbird Kelly Rowland was seemingly thrown up as the sacrificial lamb last week when news broke that she had parted ways with Columbia as a solo artist in order to skirt by Solange’s exit from Geffen.
Contrary to early reports, Kelly Rowland and Columbia executive Robert Stringer amicably split due to Rowland’s decision to move forward with her solo career apart from longtime manager Matthew Knowles (Beyonce and Solange’s father/manager). “The decision for Kelly to seek other opportunities for her solo career was agreed upon mutually, and any reports to the contrary are false,” Stringer pointed out in a release last week.
According to a record label source, “Geffen did a one-off deal with Music World Entertainment for Solange and wasn’t interested in doing a new contract with her…. In the end, the CD didn’t sell despite Solange’s countless high profile appearances”.
Matthew Knowles is boarder line Joe Jackson….and YOU ARE THE FATHER!

R.I.P. Randy Cain

Randy Cain the founding member of the Delfonics died at age 63 at his home in Maple Shade, N.J.
Can I Get a Dollar?Parade issued their "I MAKE THIS AMOUNT" list this past Sunday and here is what some of our fav celebs make.

Actors/directors
Jennifer Anisonton $27 million, Will Ferrell $31 million, Patrick Dempsey $3.5 million but Tyler Perry killed it with $125 million dollars off of his “Madea” movies.

Music
You know B & J made a killing Beyonce raked in $80 million while Jay-Z made $82 million. Britney Spears didn’t do bad for a comeback at 2.25 million and American Idol Alumni Taylor Swift made $5.5

Sports
A-Rod made $34 million, Tiger woods bust it open with $110 million, and Danica Patrick raced away with $7 mill.
BUT EVERY YEAR WHO MAKES THE MOST? BARBIE! The American favorite doll topped $3.3 billion…oh how I wish I could live Barbie’s Dream Life.

In other money news Sinbad and Dionne Warwick make the I’m pulling a Wesley Snipes list.
Sinbad owes 2.5 million while Dionne Warwich owes 2.2 million. Better call for a payment plan people

She Get's What?
A few weeks ago I posted about Project Runway's Kenley Collins being arrested for second-degree felony assault, well yesterday the charged was dropped down to a low misdemeanor. After pleding guilty she was sentenced to pay $120 fine and a two year protection order barring her from any contact with the ex-boyfriend.
Did I leave out anything?

New Baby Bump Alert


People magazine has confirmed that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are expecting their first baby in the fall.

Congrats to the happy couple.

Why Y’all Wanna Mess With Oprah


Oprah Winfrey recognizes that she has made mistakes at her South African school, but states that she is still proud of its success.
With the abuse and sexual assault charges against a former employee still at trial it’s hard to let minor mistakes go. Just recently four students were expelled and three others suspended claiming they were trying to force students into relationships and sexual activity. The Queen of Talk has not given details of the situation but she does state “I have made several mistakes and one of them was being overprotective of the girls, which has led to an impression that the school is isolating them from society.” She also said she underestimated the extent of homesickness among girls at the boarding school.

One of the expelled girls family spoke out about the expulsion and O had this to say, “Those girls in their own testimony during the (disciplinary) hearing said they knew they were breaking the rules and that they deliberately broke the rules.” It is very “insulting” that the family of one of the girls complained to the press even though she had been warned before her behavior.

Ms. Winfrey keeps an open heart and mind by saying
"The majority of girls are thriving, really fulfilling the dream and vision I had," Winfrey told the newspaper. "They really have exceeded any expectations I had for them."
"In spite of everything that's happened, what keeps me inspired and hopeful is the heart of every girl, because they are wonderful, they are magnificent."

People need to be held accountable for their actions and if your child is doing wrong they don’t need to waste space at a school where others are trying to accomplish something extraordinary! Oprah did right by making them KICK ROCKS!

I’m not a businessman…I’M A BUSINESS MAN!


Jay-z just signed a deal with Parlux Fragrances to distribute…FRAGRANCES!
Jay will pull my boy Kanye West and Rihanna into the deal with both scents to be release 2010

"We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Parlux and their management team in the launch of these dynamic new brands," said Jay-Z in a press release.
What's more, final negotiations are being made for a future fragrance by Jay-Z himself, as well as one from an unnamed but "well-established" female artist.

No word yet on who the mystery lady might be, but we all know it’s Beyonce…but to be sure I’ll let you know once we sniff out all the details

I Guess I’m Not the Only One Disturb by Burger King’s New Commercial


I was just talking to someone about this dumb azz BK commercial the other week! Here’s the breakdown of the commercial….you have the scary mascot for Burger King, THE KING, Sir-Mix-A-Lot, and some busted females with square butts….why square butts? Because they are making a spoof of the old Sir-Mix-A-Lot song Baby Got Back as the new BK commercial for the SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS KIDS MEAL.

You read right people it’s all for advertisement for the kids meal! The King is seen dancing along with women gyrating with square butts. Now Nickelodeon and Burger King have received more than 2,600 letters from CCFC complaining about the commercial and would like to know did Nickelodeon sign off on the ever so popular use of SpongeBob Squarepants in that manner.

Do I post the commercial here????????? NO because not only do I find this commercial disturbing I find all their commercials disturbing as hell. The mascot needs to go!

Yesterday I gave the update on Sam & Lindsey but after returning from a deejaying gig Sam runs into Lindsay Lohan and her Mom Dina Lohan at the same exact restaurant. After finishing up her meal, Sam, walks over and say a few kind words the dining duo.
MIXED MESSAGES ARE NOT GOOD! STOP IT PEOPLE AND LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE.

JUST WHEN I HAD HOPE ON MARRIAGES

First it was Morgan Freeman now its Mel Gibson…Mel Gibson’s wife Robyn Gibson of 28 years, YOU I SAID 28 YEARS, has filed for divorce citing what? You guessed it “IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES.”
Can someone tell me what that means?
I know the man has some drinking issues but it’s nothing a little counseling will not cure.

Remember Kool Rock Ski


Kool Rock, formerly Kool Rock-Ski of The Fat Boys, will step out on his own with the help of Jay-Z & T-Pain. New music Tuesday will bring the release of an all star, 4-track EP entitled Party Time. For the first single “We Can Talk,” the rapper was able to obtain the services of superstar Jay-Z. “Man, you know it was like two decades since I been in the game. To get in the studio and do a track with Jay-Z on it was a great feeling man,” Kool Rock told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. “That's right, me and Jay was laughing about his line ‘First the Fat Boys break-up’ [from the track ‘Heart of the City‘] and he was really happy to see we back [again]!” Another surprise guest was in-demand songwriter T-Pain. Kool Rock’s Party Time EP debuts tomorrow (April 14) on iTunes.

Just out of RESPECT I MIGHT HAVE TO MAKE IT THE CD OF THE MONTH….STILL THINKING ON IT!

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT


These are the fights I love! A hot 16 bars being spit at the next rapper, no guns, knives, just good old fashion words.

Officer Ross, LOL, has put together a hit squad to take 50 down! Who will be on this dis record you may ask? Three of 50 old rivals Fat Joe, The Game, and even Ja Rule and Ricky Ross. The new remix track is titled “Mafia Music” and will be on Rick Ross upcoming cd “Deeper than Rap.”

The contenders:
50 Cent- kills the underground world, puts out porn of folks baby mommas, and hilarious videos
VS.
The Game- scared to mention that he actually has beef with 50 but in reality he does because he will owe 50 money for a very long time.

Fat Joe- always come out swing even when he gets torn a apart. Not only does he check 50 but he’s going hard and getting at the whole G-Unit Camp.

Ja Rule-where in the hook world has he been? Ja must be trying to make a comeback and show his “thug” side because dude straight broke it down and tells 50 “Curly [50 Cent] get off my d**k/before that chopper (AK-47) gets to poppin off/at ni**as who be mouthing off/read in between the lines when you hear me talk go ahead get out of line/this Rule York.”
Then we have the big fella from the MIA-YO, Rick Ross, who just kills it with the lines “I’ll put a milli on it/this p**sy don’t want it/show up in his hood with the wolves by the morning “Once you cross that line, it aint about North and South,” Rick Ross says at the end about his alliance. “It’s about money and power. Riders and punks. My money is long as 183rd street aka Miami Gardens.”

My money is on……Check out Rick Ross on the cover of XXL.

DEAD BEAT DADDY PUT ON BLAST!

RECAP! RECAP! RECAP!

People I know I promised that I wouldn't stay away so long and a week in the gossip world is a long time be away so as promised here is a recap of all the things I didn’t get a chance to talk about.

GABBY UNION PREGGERS?

Gabby is preggers but for a new tv show she is suppose to be doing! Rumors were flying everywhere about Gabrielle Union being pregnant by Dwyane Wade, but our girl Gabby cleared the air with Egypt when she said that she “love margaritas and her career too much for babies at this time.” She also said “I’m not ready for babies at this time. It’ll be years before I am! But Big ups to all the women out there holding it down.”
So does this mean that she and D-Wade are together but just not preggers? UMMMMM I guess you all will continue to wonder, but for some of us we already know the truth.

T-BOZ IS AIN'T STUNTIN' DONALD TRUMP AND DAYUM SURE AIN'T JEALOUS OF BEYONCE


Fresh off of Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice” the cool and laid back Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins said she was not mad at all about being sent home from the show. She know she did her thing when she was on the show and all Donald could say was she was stiff…which didn’t bother her at all; she got what she came for which was to raise awareness and money for Sickle Cell Anemia Research.

T-Boz is not jealous of Beyonce…If she was going to be jealous of anyone it would be of herself…she was just expressing that no one group should be managed by one’s parent because at the end of the day they have a personal relationship and they will always put that person’s interest first…I AGREE! And we will finally get a TLC movie…when she didn’t say and I didn’t look or get calls about it.


T-Boz and her boyfriend Buffalo Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes

T-Boz daughter with Mack 10....CHASE

AWE DAYUM ANOTHER BLACK SHOW GONE

Three years ago we were introduce to Malanie Barnett, on again off again boyfriend Derwin Davis,Kelly & Jason Pitts, Tasha Mack and son Malik Wright on the TV show “The Game.” It pulled in high numbers every week with crazy yet funny lives of professional football players and their family and friends, but once again we may lose a good show. The CW is reportedly pulling the show and other comedies. The show creator Mara Brock Akil continues to fight but you know how it normally turns out…HELL WE DIDN’T EVEN GET A PROPER GOODBYE FOR GIRLFRIEND AND JOAN FINALLY GOT A MAN WHO WANTED TO MARRY HER!

WHAT NO MORE 3LW OR CHEETAH GIRLS

Just when I thought I was done with all the bubble gum, Disney movie soundtracks, and watching Adrienne Bailon make a fool out of herself it is said that she has signed on with Def Jam. Word on the street is she is working on a solo deal with hit makers B-Cox, The Dream; lets hope she has all club bangers because this chick can’t take any more beat-ups in the industry.

Watch out C. Milian Adrienne is known to do a little freaky stuff for publicity.

I GUESS LINDSEY LOHAN’S STRIAGHT AGAIN

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson call it quits on their relationship. But while Samantha is quite about the break up she has shot down rumors that she will put out a restraining order against Lindsey Lohan although her sister and mom went to the Beverly Hills Police Station to inquire about the process of filling.

UMMMMM WHY ALL THE TROUBLE!

AMERICAN IDOL ALUMNI MANDISA


Recently Mandisa spoke to essence regarding her recent weight lost, CD and book.
Mandisa on weight
“This is not about looking a certain way because true beauty is within,” says Mandisa. “For me, it’s about living a healthy life.”
Mandisa on book
Mandisa’s debut novel, “Idol Eyes: My Perspective on Faith, Fat and Fame,” has been receiving a ton of support at her book readings.
Mandisa on CD

“It’s amazing because when I put this album together I had no idea how poignant it would be to the Women of Faith Conference,” says Mandisa. “All the speakers talk about freeing yourself in one way or another. I too am letting go to look toward a brighter future and better me.”

Mandisa is currently on a 20 city tour with the Women of Faith Conference look for it in your city.

Unfortunately the cd Lady Love will not see the May 19 release date all expected. It is now scheduled for a June 16 release day because of internal label re-structuring….Let’s be real the label kicked her back so she wouldn’t have to compete with Eminem but on the real she would have topped his sales…HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUSHED BACK NOT HER!

As I was on Youtube I ran across this vid...funny yet disturbing

FACT: There are 16,800 homicides and $2.2 million medically treated injuries due to intimate partner violence a year with in the U.S.

Rock Hall of Fame: RUN DMC

Saturday night was a great night for Run DMC as they were inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in Cleveland Ohio.
Rocking the signature black leather jacket, Eminem, popped on the scene to induct the legendary rappers with the following speech:
"Two turn tables and mic, that's all it took to change the world," Eminem said. "When I was a kid growing up in Detroit. I didn't know what to be, then came Run-DMC.
