MY AWARDS FOR THE SITDOWN SOMEWHERE ANYWHERE AWARDS GOES TO.......

Keri Hilson- she just proved why B didn't want to perform with her, I'm trying to figure out if it was a tribute to MJ, Elvis, or Gay Pride Month. And before you reply that is my girl and her cd is hawt but the ending of her performance was a mess.

Beyonce I'm so sick of the leotard look and what the hell she have on with it? I will be glad when she gets out the leotard phase because the winter snow princess look is not working! I mean WTF the cotton ball bottom, the lacefront from the concert here in DC all sweated out, the tiara and veil....oh she made the list. I must say she did sound good when singing....oh let me not forget that she needs to do a better job on her being surprise look, because that ish she did before Jigga came out was ummmmmmm WEAK!

New Edition, y'all know I love them guys but dang on it they sounded a hot mess! Oh and that Bobby Brown put out is nasty tongue and it did not send chills up my spine but make my skin crawl!

Lil Wayne, Drake, and the rest of Cash Money could have avoided this list but oooohhh no he just had to let his daughter and her little friends come on stage doing the performance of none other than ALL THE GIRLS.

Mary Mary stepping out in club gear while singing gospel....ummmm really? Y'all know I know some church goers that can party with the best of them but they also know the time and place, they should have just sung a "worldly" song and called it a night. But I must say that the outfits and shoes were fiyah!

T-Pain and that "Big Ass Chain" as my friend said looking like Flava Flav's brother

All the background dancers of the night except Maxwell and Ne-Yo's are very close to soft porn and I need for you all to cover the kiddies eyes. I thought the people were going to start making it rain on the BET Red Carpet. GEESH!

Jermiah almost made the sit down somewhere anywhere list but the keyboard saved him!

Don Cornelius, I respect my elders but what the hell was he talking about? For real please tell me if u know I had to mute his azz.

The everyday ordinary people who don't get out much.....Jamie had proved why everyday people cannot be seen in public with celebs! H.A.M!!!!!!!!

Tiny, I see, went to the same school of interviewing as Ray-J and Beyonce. I need for you to blink when reading the teleprompter, speak directly into the mike and annunciate your words! YEEEEAAAAAHHHHH BABY!

And I must say that Joe Jackson is a complete Azz and I see that he is the Principal of the interviewing school that graduated Tiny, Ray-J & Beyonce.

I think I forgot somebody, but I can't remember right now.

Best of the night

Ne-Yo hands down! He was consistent throughout the entire evening, it should have been called the Jamie & Ne-Yo show since they were on what seemed like every second...but they both did their thang!

Kee-Kee Palmer is growing up to be such a young women and what a beautiful voice....she should have taken Keri's place at the end of her performance. Love the cuteness!

Amber Rose held it down next to Kanye.

Love T-Pain that dude is funny as hell but you know he made the list with that "Big Ass Chain" and Jamie did it when performing "Blame It"

Taraji P. Henson dress and shoes were FIYAH!

Keyshia Cole and Monica were on point and who the hell cut Monica's hair? I swear I might have to fly to the A and the boots.....Only Mary J and Monica, They are the only people who can get away with wearing boots in the summer and I'm talking about knee boots with no ventilation.

BBD had me about to get up and out of my bed to dance around in my room.

Lil Tevin Campbell omg did Lil Tevin Campbell come out on stage in do it or what!!!!!!! Johnny Gill, Tyrese, and Trey Songz did a nice and respectful tribute, and Tyrese killed it. The O'Jays are a real group sound good moved together take notes people.

11:14 Maxwell finally came out on stage looking oh so scrumptious performing "Pretty Wings" dayum I wanted to ummm ahemmmm never mind cd preordered!!!!!!

J.J. step on stage and I wanted to cry!

The skit that Jamie and Martin put together for Skank Robbers had me in tears and if this was a real movie I would be first in line opening night.

And last but not least Jay-Z aka Jigga, aka Hov aka SHAWN CARTER!!!!!!!!!!! ENOUGH SAID! YOU KNOW MY DIAMOND WAS IN THE AIR ROC4LIFE.....MO, HE A BAD MAN.....LOVES HIM. DID YOU PREORDER THE CD? You know he gave me a copy already, lol.

I know I forgot a whole lot but hey this is what I could remember. Oh and by the way the Tiny & Toya show does not appear to be as ghet as the preview made it look. I will be tuning in. Yeeeeaaaahhh Baby!

Oh yeah, Jamie & Martin I really need y'all to make that Skank Robbers! I would be the first in line.



Live at the BET Awards...3 of the best performance!

There is no one greater than the late "KING OF POP" Michael Jackson



MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON
AUGUST 29,1958- JUNE 25, 2009


On 19 April I posted a vid on my other blog, Just My Thoughts (click the link at the bottom) simply stating MJ will forever be the KING OF POP, no words were needed because this was a known fact. On 25 June 2009 as I walk in the house I turn on CNN, my phone started blowing up with text messages stating Michael Jackson was dead, who?! What ever not the KING OF POP! So now I’m listening closely as the reporters state that Michael Jackson went into cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital for treatment, as I wipe he tear from my eye I breath a sigh of relief…HE’S ALIVE! Now the Facebook status of my friends are starting to change saying he is dead according to TMZ, well guess what they are wrong MJ is ALIVE.

OMG 6:20pm CNN reports that L.A. Times and CBS News release the news that MJ is dead while CNN reports that he is in a coma. 6:45 CNN confirms with the corners office MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON HAS DIED AT THE AGE OF 50! I was devastated and tears actually rolled down my face, NOT MJ, NOT INVICIBLE, NOT THE I’M BAD MAN! MJ created the moonwalk, had the hawtest dance moves before there was an Usher, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, or Justin Timberlake.

In honor of the best entertainer there ever was I honor him with my favorite vids and a brief history.


Michael Joseph Jackson was born 29 August 1958 in Gary Indiana to Joseph “Joe” Jackson and Katherine Jackson, he was the seventh born out of nine children. At the tender age of eight he won the hearts of millions; along side his brothers Jermaine, Marlon, Jackie, and Tito as the singing R&B group Jacksons 5. The group toured for two years (1966-1968) before winning a major talent show by performing James Brown’s “I Feel Good” and other Motown Hits lead by Michael.

With that win Joe Jacksons signed with the record label “Steeltown” before signing with Motown Records in 1968; this move would mark the beginning of promising years for the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson, the future “King of Pop.” Doing his time with the Jackson 5, the group released four smash hits that will all sing today, The Love You Save (Stop), ABC, I Want You Back, and I’ll Be There and the cartoon the Jackson 5ive. The group went on to have 14 other smash hit songs.

1979 marked the launch of MJ's solo career with "OFF The Wall", by 1984 Jackson formally departed from his bothers and the group. At this pivitol moment in his life Michael Jackson recorded, co-produced, and released the world's best selling album of all time,"THRILLER". This icon received 13 Grammy Awards along with MTV, BET, American Music, and many other awards for not only music but work as a humanitarian. To prove to the world that MJ is the best he was a double inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a memeber of the Jackson 5 1997 and as a solo artist in 2001)and as an inductee of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

There will never be another artist that can sell over 750 million units WORLDWIDE.

MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON YOU WILL FOREVER BE MISSED!

Remember Teedra Moses

Teedra Moses had one of the best cds that was not promoted well. Complex Simplicity was a well put with songs such as Be Your Girl, You Better Tell Her, and Rescue Me, this songstress didn’t get the recognition she deserved.

Recently Teedra did a live show in London, while there she did an interview with SoulCuture that discussed her former lable TVT, her new album, and thoughts on cheating.

Check out the interview

THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE


I know I said i was going to update the blog on a regular but hey life gets in the way and I'm sure you all understand that! What better way to make a comeback to the blog world with the first blog for June being about my fav rapper Jay-Z, Jigga aka Hova aka Shawn Carter!

Oh and he is making a comeback with his 11 studio album “The Blueprint 3” is due 11 September according to Sam Crespo's Twitter announcement that was removed (oh it's so great to be a twitterbug; although the link was removed about the release date an offical date is rumored to be announced doing a concert Sunday. And you all know I can’t wait! Pre-Ordered already...ROC4LIFE!

As a teaser he has dropped a new single, DOA (Death of Autotune) but the official radio singles should start dropping in July with the first one called “Off That” featuring Drake.

Check it out DOA www.zshare.net/audio/61005236503008eb

Tell me what you think.

I love it! It’s the truth because I was getting tired of all that autotune stuff. T-Pain did his thing but it was time to let go!

“The only rapper alive to rewrite history without a pen”

Oh yeah Jay made the Forbes list at #33. YEAH HE FALL DOWN ON THE LIST BUT THAT IS WHAT HAPPENES WHEN YOU PAY ANOTHER COMPANY TO GET OUT OF A CONTRACT. Lose Money to Make Money and remember Jay told us along time ago "I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man. Let me handle my buisness, damn!"

*HUGS & KISSES* GOES TO THAT MAN ALL DAY EVERY DAY
