Video: Timbaland - “Scream” Feat. Keri Hilson & Nicole S.

15 01 2008


YouTube - Direct Video Link 

You know what time it is…it’s time for: Name! That! Nicoooooooole! *plays “Price is Right” music*

Let’s see…I think I will take Nicole Snowconevendor!

Anyway, this video? I want them 3-4 minutes of my life back. I started picking my nails and getting the crust out of my eyes about 45 seconds into this video. Don’t get me wrong, I loves me some Keri Hilson, but what the hell, this video was boring as hell! Once I saw Nicole Schwartzengger’s Yaki-tail sticking out the through the ski mask (WTF were they coming to steal Timbaland’s steroids? Were they in on the case? LOL!), I was done.

Boring, tepid, and the song isn’t even one of my favorites. They should have done “Miscommunication”. No more Nicole Jingleheimerschmidt, she is SO boring and just…meh. Trying to poke her non-fatty up in the air on the hood of the car! Girl stop!

Don’tcha think your album is never gonna come out? Don’tcha!

Mary J., Timbaland, 50 Cent, Wyclef & Tyler Perry Named In Steroid Scandal

13 01 2008

Mary J. Blige, Timbaland, 50 Cent, Wyclef Jean and Tyler Perry have been named in relation with a steroids trafficking case in Albany, NY that has already landed athletes like Barry Bonds and Marion Jones in hot water.

Information has surfaced recently showing those stars are among tens of thousands of people who may have used or received prescribed shipments of steroids and injectable human growth hormone in recent years. Law enforcement officials have said they have no evidence in their sprawling multistate probe that customers, including Blige or other entertainers, violated any laws. Instead, they are targeting anti-aging clinics, doctors and pharmacists who prescribed the drugs.

Still, medical experts say that use of steroids and human growth hormone — an estimated $10 billion-a-year operation worldwide — reaching into the entertainment industry illustrates how pervasive steroids use in the United States has become. It is not unique to athletics, where performance-enhancing drug use has marred many sports. For many celebrities, the lure of hormonal drugs is their supposed, unproven anti-aging effects.

While Congress is preparing to focus on baseball players alleged to have taken the drugs, medical experts are warning that steroids and human growth hormone are being illegally prescribed nationwide at an alarming rate under the misconception they will aid healing, enhance looks, strength and speed, or slow aging.

Records shared with the Times Union and information from several cooperating witnesses on Long Island indicate Blige and other stars were shipped prescribed human growth hormone or steroids — sometimes under fictitious names — at hotels, production studios, private residences, an upscale Manhattan fitness club and through the Long Island office of Michael Diamond, a chiropractor affiliated with the celebrities, sources said.

“In the end the story is less about the entertainers and the athletes and more about the people who are providing them with the drugs,” Olshansky said. “They can’t get those drugs without somebody with a degree giving it to them.”

Still, big names draw interest, including in Congress, where hearings are set to begin this week on a report issued last month by former Sen. George Mitchell that exposed widespread steroids abuse in professional baseball. (Source)

This shit is crazy! I guess some of them are less surprising than others (50, Timbaland) but wow! Mary?! Tyler Perry?! This same paper had a breakdown on specifics for each of the celebrities’ implied usage (see the jump).

D.O.E. Clarifies Timbaland Rumors

20 11 2007

D.O.E., best known for his verse on “The Way I Are”, came to the defense of his mentor Timbaland on allegations from the New York Post that he knocked up a random girl. He says the girl is in fact Tim’s girlfriend Monique Idlett and that the two are engaged to be married.

“I want to clarify a few things to the Post for trying to make [Timbaland’s] fiancée seem like some random chick he knocked up. That’s his fiancée,” D.O.E. told AllHipHop.com. “I was there when he proposed to her and gave her a rock the size of Scott Storch’s head. This is the happiest I’ve ever seen big homie and I’m happy for him and his fiancée.”

“Not all Black men want to be a baby daddy. Get it right Post,” D.O.E. concluded. (Source)

OK, forget rapping, D.O.E. needs to go into Public Relations. I fell out at this! That comment about Scott Storch’s head had me on the floor because it was so unexpected. For some reason I can hear him saying “Get it right, Post!” like a second grader.

Who’s Been F***in’ For Tracks Now?

20 11 2007

 

This chick better learn her place before Keri Hilson swoops down and stabs her with a million dollar Bic pen! KIDDING.

TIMBALAND is mixing business and pleasure - and is about to become a baby daddy. According to our insider, the power producer is having a baby girl with a woman who works at his record label, Mosley Music Group. The duo aren’t a couple, although Timbaland promises to be “involved in the child’s upbringing.” Our source added: “He’s very excited about the baby and has been very supportive to the mother.” The baby is due at the end of November. Timbaland’s rep did not return repeated calls for comment. (source)

Clearly he’s not watching BET’s “Rap-It-Up” Specials. It’s 2007 people! Da hail?!!!

I thought Tim mixing business with pleasure was a late night Popeye’s run during a studio session for some hot, juicy breasts and thighs.

*rimshot*

I’ll be here until I stuff my face with turkey all week folks!

No really, who is this chick? I need pictures, evidence. Cause she MUST be lookin’ for tracks…or maybe she’s tired of carrying his coffee and Prilosec pills, and she decided it was time for a promotion!?

Or maybe Tim slipped her a Ruffie? In any case, get that money girl!! Brave soul she is.

Timbaland makes me want to kick something

7 03 2007

After conjuring up no fewer than five No. 1 hits for Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado in the past eight months, top producer Timbaland may now be turning his attention to a new project: Britney Spears.

The hitmaker tells EW he would like to work with the troubled star, who — at press time — was enrolled in a 30-day-minimum rehab program at Promises Malibu, an inpatient treatment center in Southern California. ”I feel her pain, it really bothers me,” says the influential beatsmith, his voice cracking with emotion. ”I’m the type of person who tries to save the world. I just want to take her away, go overseas, and work [it] out.” And if the pair decide to team up, there could be another unexpected guest. Timbaland reveals to EW that his ”best friend” and Spears’ ex, Justin Timberlake, would be willing to reunite with Britney in the studio. (Representatives for Spears’ and Timberlake’s label, Jive, could not be reached for comment.) Says Timbaland: ”I asked Justin, ‘How would you feel about me working with Britney?’ I had to ask him that. I said, ‘Would you do it with me?”’ According to Timbaland, the singer said he would. ”She’s just gotta be serious.”

And if she were, the payoff could be enormous: The pop-titan trifecta would be Top 40 catnip and a massive boost for Spears, whose career has been all but dormant since she released her last disc of new material, In the Zone, in 2003.

However long it takes, Timbaland is standing by. ”I just want to hold her hand. I want her to be in my camp, to be around Justin. I need Justin to talk to her. Help her, please!” ( Entertainment Weekly)

Oh my God! I’m about to throw up here for real. I guess Timbaland is so busy “saving the world” as he says that he didn’t have enough time to make his own beats. His “best friend” Justin Timberlake, huh? Maybe Scott Storch and ‘nem had something with that taking-it-up-the-butt business.
