Heath Ledger Found Dead

22 01 2008

The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment building at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, according to the New York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28.

At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities.

The police said they did not suspect foul play. Officials said pills were found near the body. (Source)

This is crazy! Anyone following the news knows Brad Renfro died last week at 25. They say famous deaths come in threes so let’s hope that’s not true.

Assorted Updates from TMZ:

* The pills found were over-the-counter and may have been sleep-aid Ambien

* Heath had substance abuse problems in the past but a friend says he’d been clean for a year.

* He was NOT in Mary-Kate Olsen’s apartment

* Too early to determine if death was accidental or suicide

I Guess Johnny Wasn’t Having That ONE BIT

16 01 2008


FAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!

Great day in the mawning, Eddie and Tracey have broken up!!!

Just two weeks after their wedding, Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds have split, according to People.

The couple tied the knot on New Year’s Day on a private island near Bora Bora in French Polynesia.

They began dating fall 2006 and were engaged in July.

However, the wedding ceremony was a spiritual ceremony and the couple planned on having a legally binding ceremony upon returning to the U.S. However, since that ceremony never took place the couple was never official married to begin with.

Murphy, 46, has five children from his previous marriage to Nicole Mitchell Murphy, who filed for divorce in 2005. He also has a daughter with Spice Girl and “Dancing With the Stars” alum Mel B.

Edmonds, a 40-year-old movie producer, has two sons from her 12-year marriage to R&B singer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. As head of Edmonds Entertainment, she has produced the film and television series “Soul Food.”

Murphy’s film credits include “Dreamgirls,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Shrek” and “The Beverly Hills Cop” franchise. (source)

THIS nigga right cheah…..LAWD. I do declare, if Eddie don’t quit playing with these black women’s emotions, he’s gonna end up with a Mama Tina root box, Juanita Bynum word curse, Angela Bassett “Car on Fire” “Waiting to Exhale” style, tired slashed and car keyed Tamela Jones style from “Friday After Next,” and Johnny Gill giving him the herpes or something. He messing with EVERY ones emotions.

This is a mess. I won’t even go into how they weren’t married in the first place — “Brandy” style with that “spiritual union” mess. Tracey woke the f!*k up and was like, “HELL NAW I DON’T WANT TO BE A BEARD! CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!!”

I’m glad. I can love you better than he can Tracey. Johnny’s brain game must be proper! LOL let me quit. Erin, I can’t get that Vesta video out of my head ROFL!

Tiny Pregnant Again?

4 01 2008


Aww there is someone for EVERYBODY! :)

I hear that Tameka “Tiny” Cottle is pregnant again with child #___ by T.I., and she announced it on her Myspace page via bulletin. She’s not MY friend, so I can’t confirm as of yet though. Or is this the same baby they said she was pregnant with when she was arrested? Iono. Whatever.

Are they married yet? I guess T.I. ain’t got nothing else better to do than eat eggs, drink Kool-Aid, record in the studio, play Wii, and keep Tiny’s sugarbox company. Lil’ King is about to get a court jester to play with!

She poppin’ em out like popcawn though. I heard that the Xscape reunion was derailed by T.I. because he didn’t want her to do it.

I think he’s keeping her wifed up and pregnant for that reason among others. Oh and to flush the yayyy-yayyyoooooo, like Apples warned. LOL.

One thing is sure: Tiny will never ever have to work another day in her life LOL. If they get divorced, or un-fake-married, or stop playing house, w/e, her child support & alimony is gonna be Nicole Murphy phat!

No Charges For Brandy!!

28 12 2007

YES!!

Brandy will not be charged by the CHP for her accused role in a fatal accident that killed one person on the 405 freeway last year. Brandy stans rejoice! Her lawyer released a statement to the press.

Brandy’s high-powered attorney, Blair Berk, released the following statement exclusively to TMZ:

“We are extremely pleased that after a more thorough and extensive investigation by authorities, the Los Angeles City Attorney has determined that Brandy Norwood should not be charged with any crime whatsoever relating to the accident back in 2006.”

She continued, “These past 12 months have posed an extraordinary hardship for Brandy and her family, who have been unfairly forced to live under a cloud of suspicion initially caused by the ill-advised and premature press release sent out by the California Highway Patrol accusing Brandy of wrongdoing before the police investigation was even finished. However, Brandy continues to be mindful that she was so fortunate to be uninjured in this accident and there was a life lost that should be remembered.” (source) (source)

I’m so glad for her. Can we PLEASE get some new music now? Pretty pretty please Bran-Bran Nut Muffin Head?!

Sweet Minty Jesus himself said he wants a new Brandy single LOL.

Breaking: Raz B Retracts Statements and Apologizes

26 12 2007


YouTube - Direct Video Link 

Come on now…

Someone GOT to him. Without his consent MY A**!

I don’t believe him, he needs more people!

Someone either a) paid him, b) threatened him or c) caused him some bodily harm. You don’t come out with nothing like those allegations, lying! That ish was too well edited, thought out and taped, for it to “come out” without his permission. Plus, all the people he called on the phone and were discussing this with seemed to know what was going on!

I hope this dude is ok. He couldn’t even look at the camera. I think Chris, Omarion, Marques, J-Boog & Fizz were probably all pressuring him from their respective point of views and he just couldn’t deal. He seems like he might be the type to maybe flip out or something. I did hear rumors too that he had some mental issues, so hopefully he is alright. This poor man soul and spirit seem to have been broken. So sad.

But as far as this retraction and apology? I call B.S.! He might as well had been on TV telling me Amy Winehouse is clean and sober. Boy stop! Sat down!!!

El Presidente Camel Will Step Down From Def Jam

24 12 2007

Well, we all knew this was coming. I guess he got tired of those LL Cool J death threats.

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter will step down as Def Jam Records president when his contract expires this year, he and Universal Music Group announced today (Dec. 24). The rapper will continue to record for Roc-A-Fella, the label he co-founded in 1996, which is part of the Universal-distributed Island Def Jam Music Group.

In a statement announcing his departure, Jay-Z acknowledged the artists and executives he had worked with during his three years as label president, including IDJ chairman/CEO Antonio “L.A.” Reid.

He added, “It’s time for me to take on new challenges [Managing Beyonce’? Hmmm…]. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to build upon the Def Jam legacy, helping to move the company into a new era of artistic success.”

Reid stated, “Jay made it clear to us that he feels the time has come to take on different challenges in his life. While we regret his decision to move on, we certainly respect it … While he will continue to be one of our signature artists, he will nonetheless be missed in this executive capacity.” (source)

Well color me beige and give me 2-3 humps!

I bet you Redman, Ghostface, LL Cool J, Ne-Yo, Chrisette Michelle, Megan Rochelle, and all the other under-promoted artists are having a big ole party right now, on Def Jam’s dime at that. Coke and Rum for everyone, and I ain’t talking about the drink. Only person sad is Rihanna — she done lost her sugar daddy.

I think that whenever you have someone who is still intimately involved with the performance aspect of the industry, yet is attempting to manage and execute goals on a corporate level, there is going to be a major conflict of interest.

One just has to look at Jay’s recent album. There were plenty of other artists who had release dates before Jay decided to release American Gangster. All of a sudden, he wants to release an album. Because he IS Jay-Z, he’s obviously going to eclipse everyone else. He’s always going to be a priority artist.

So as a result of his decision as the President of the label to release his album, and spend money on himself essentially — other artist aren’t promoted or given equal time because Jay-Z is using up all the resources for himself. He’s priority — because of his history in the industry, but ALSO, because he’s given himself priority because he’s the PRESIDENT.

That’s my .02.

Chris Stokes Releases A Statement; Video of Party Family Was Turned Away From

24 12 2007

Chris Stokes has come forward and released a statement, since the Internets has been going crazy:

“The accusations that Demario “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton have made are vehemently false and hold no merit.  I have recently stopped financially supporting both individuals along with assisting them with their criminal and legal matters which leads me to believe they are resentful and looking to benefit financially from this.  My family is my first priority and the reason why I have been so supportive of them.  In bringing these false claims, they have not only slandered me, they have also put me in a position to ensure that the truth is known and I will take all legal routes to protect myself, my family and my four children,” said Chris Stokes, CEO of The Ultimate Group.

“It’s also quite ironic that these statements were made only 2 weeks after they were denied admittance by a venue for an event I hosted in Beverly Hills,” added Stokes.

You know his mother mentioned the reality show that he should be focusing on? Here’s a clip from it that features a clip of them not being admitted to the event in question. You can also see Chris Stokes talking to Raz:


YouTube - Direct Video Link 

I think that they should put them all on Maury and make them take a lie detector test! That’s just me. Or how about Oprah does an episode, invites Dr. Phil, and let him scream and get red in the face at all of them. THAT’LL break Chris Stokes *rolls eyes*

I don’t believe Mr. Stokes, he needs more people. Sure, I think that Raz and whoever could have gone about this in a MUCH  better way, i.e. just pressing charges and bypassing Youtube and all that…but on the flip side, this forces Chris Stokes to deal with this “situation” and admit to it, deny it, whatever. What’s done in the dark always comes to the light.

Alright, I am tired of talking about this LOL. Back to my party!

TMZ Reporting Pimp C Found Dead!

4 12 2007

 

OMG….

Pimp C, real name Chad Butler — and one half of the rap duo UGK, was found dead in a hotel room this morning. He was 33.

L.A. County Fire responded to a 911 call at the Mondrian Hotel, located on trendy Sunset Strip in Hollywood. They arrived to his sixth floor hotel room to find him dead in bed.

UGK is best known for appearing on the Jay-Z track “Big Pimpin’” in 2000, and more recently with Outkast on the song “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You).” Pimp C had just performed with fellow rapper Too Short at the “House of Blues” in L.A. on Saturday night. (source)

WOW. Random…RIP Pimp C. I hope it wasn’t drugs or foul play.

We’ll try and update you when we hear more…

Rodney King Shot; Jesus Wept.

29 11 2007

I mean REALLY. Between this and OJ going to jail (maybe?) I feel like Johnnie Cochran is going to come around the corner singing “We shall overcome!” What is this, 1992 all over again!?:

Rodney King, whose beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 drew international headlines, has been shot, but his wounds are not life-threatening, according to media reports.

Rialto police Sergeant Don Lewis told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that King was hit in the face and arm by shotgun pellets on a San Bernardino street corner Wednesday night. He bicycled to his home in neighboring Rialto to call police and was taken to a hospital [Note: WTF!? - The IPS].

Police said when they arrived at the home, King and others there appeared drunk and few were cooperative in providing information. (source)

Like one of our readers says, “Claude hammercy!”

I won’t even talk about how he rode his bicycle home.

How old is Rodney King? 40? 35? Dude is still riding a bicycle!? I mean, I know gas is high here in Los Angeles, but I mean REALLY get a bus pass.

That is hood mentality right there. Clearly people who ain’t ever really been nowhere ride their bikes around the hood all day.

I can tell you what happened. He got gangsta on one of his girlfriends (”Do you know who I am woman!? I’m Rodney-momofoking-King!”) and she put his tail out and then called her cousin “2 Strikes” Reginald who has warrants out to get that n*gga! Then, Reginald pulled out the non-lethal joint, rolled up on that fool standing in front of Ms. Chow’s Chicken & Liquor and taught him a lesson. Then he row, row, rowed his boat all the way home LOL.

At least, that’s what happened in my mind when I read this. $2 fake internet bucks I’m not far off!

Condolences to Kanye West, RIP Donda West

11 11 2007

This is sad…very sad. Our prayers and condolences go to Kanye and his family. I had heard it was from complications during a surgery. I wonder what she died from, or what kind of surgery she was having!? I hadn’t even heard she was sick. I smell a malpractice lawsuit…

Donda West, mother of Kanye West and former chairwoman of Chicago State University’s English department, has died, a spokesman for the rapper said.

Donda West died Saturday night in Los Angeles, said the spokesman, who asked for anonymity because not all family members had been notified.

“The family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief,” the spokesman said.

A cause of death has not been released. (source)

AHM! is very sorry for Kanye’s loss. Losing a parent is never an easy thing, and I am sure it’s even harder when you are a public figure.

Sisqo & Bobby Brown Have Lost Their Cot Dang Minds

19 10 2007

OMG ya’ll — I have no words. Just…read this!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Bobby Brown … country superstar?

The R&B singer is one of several celebrities set to compete in a new CMT series designed to give one of them a chance to break out as the next big country music star.

“Gone Country,” a six-episode series premiering in January, will feature John Rich of the country duo Big & Rich guiding seven celebrities through the music industry.

Along with Brown, the participants include Carnie Wilson, formerly of Wilson Phillips; Dee Snider of Twisted Sister; “American Idol” finalist Diana DeGarmo; Julio Iglesias Jr.; Maureen McCormick (”The Brady Bunch”); and R&B artist Sisqo.

Production is under way. The celebrities are holed up in a Nashville mansion, where songwriters are preparing them for a career in country music. In each episode, the cast competes against one another in challenges that will test them musically and physically to adapt to a country music lifestyle both on- and offstage. After two weeks, Rich will select one winner, who will record and release a song. (source)

Bobby Brown? Sisqo? In the same house?! OMG I wonder who will fight over the crackpipe first, them or Dee Snider!

Poor Diana DeGarmo, I hope she don’t get bit by “The Dragon”. If Sisqo is still rocking that platinum dyed taper cut I will seriously die. White people aren’t going to take him seriously lookin’ the 2007 version of Another Bad Creation!

I think Bobby and Sisqo should have a sing-off:

Sisqo: “Yeaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhh yeah!” (you know, that run he ALWAYS does!)
Bobby Brown: “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh!”
Sisqo: “Get that weak sh!t out of my house son!”
Bobby: “I AM THE KANG OF R&B YOUNGIN’!”
Diana DeGarmo: “Ya’ll STFU! I am trying to watch my stories!”

Let the foollywang tomfoolery begin. What these dudes won’t do for a Klondike Bar! *sets Tivo reminder*

What? You KNOW I am going to be watching “The Return of the Dragon(fly)”!

Prodigy of Mobb Deep Goes Upstate

11 10 2007


Practicing makes perfect! All he needs is a wifebeater in this pic to complete his “jailhouse rock” pose.

We gots to do better. Ya’ll please leave this ninja alone so he don’t have to carry a heater! What would Big Baby Jesus do!?

Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy pleaded guilty to a weapons charge in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday (October 9).

P spoke up in the middle of his trial proceedings to admit that the unlicensed .22-caliber pistol police found in his Chevy Suburban last October, was in fact his, according to the Daily News.

This, after the G-Unit member originally told prosecutors he had no idea the unlicensed, fully loaded gun was in a console compartment between the driver’s seat, where he sat, and the front passenger seat, where record producer The Alchemist was sitting.

This is P’s third gun rap and as reported by The New York Post, he was originally looking at 15 years. The 32-year-old Queens-bred lyricist struck a deal that will instead send him to the slammer for 3 1/2 years.

As reported previously by SOHH, P’s car was searched after cops pulled him over for making an illegal U-turn on Ninth Ave. in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. (source)

All this cause didn’t use a turn signal?!

*runs outside to check lights*

Well, I hope I don’t cough on an officer’s maple bar one morning in Winchell’s. They will probably give me 10 years. Sweet Minty Jesus be a butt plug Albert Johnson.
