Aretha Calls 9-Wah-Wah On The Grammys

12 02 2008

Aunt ReRe needs to sit down and have a bowl (or seven) of ice cream to get over this because the rest of us just don’t care.

When Beyoncé and Tina Turner hit the Grammy stage for their high-octane duet, most folks were left in awe. But the woman known as the “Queen of Soul” was left a bit dismayed after Beyoncé introduced Turner as “the queen.”

An offended Aretha Franklin says in a statement, “I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyoncé, however I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy. In addition to that, I thank the Grammys and the voting academy for my 20th Grammy and love to Beyoncé anyway.”

There was no immediate comment from Beyoncé or the Recording Academy. (Source)

I think enough people have kissed those oversized mammaries for a lifetime, hmmm? Does it REALLY matter that you didn’t get ALL the shine for once? Did you copyright the word “Queen”?

The worst part about this is I totally saw it coming as soon as Bey-Bey introuced Anna Mae. Maybe if Aretha decided to put on something other than a “2002 prom dress” (NaeNae, you a fool for that one) that looks like it’s three sizes too small and keep her jug-ulars in check we’d be more inclined to “properly honor her”.

This Isn’t Worth “Mess of the Moment”

11 02 2008

Kelis showed up to the Grammys to promote her man’s new album. Beyond the initial shock of people seeing the N-word on her back those Studio 54 pants, I’m sure they wondered what the hell she was doing there since she got dropped from Jive and hasn’t really been rushing to get a new singing deal. Or anything, for that matter.

This kind of desperate cry for attention is forbidden from being plastered on our wall of shame because it’s exactly what she wants. Sit tight, Andre Harrell!

I’m Tuning OUT

5 02 2008

Flavor Flav is set to co-star with Kelly Perine (yes, from “One On One”) in a new sitcom called “Under One Roof” airing on MyNetworkTV. Really? I think more people watch the Public Access channel in my hometown than MyNetworkTV.

According to TV Week, the show will focus on Flav, who plays an ex-con, and his relationship with his rich, conservative brother, played by Kelly Perine after they become roommates.

The Fox owned network, MYNetworkTV, has purchased thirteen, 30 minute episodes of the show and plans on premiering it in the spring. (Source)

To be honest, I’d rather see a piece of burnt shit starring in a sitcom. Oh wait… I guess that’s what this is.

Bill Cosby To Put Out Rap Album

31 01 2008

I think I’m going to have to come up with a new category tag because of this post. “Not Enough Tags In The World” is what it’s going to be called.

Bill Cosby - a staunch critic of some rap music - is set to release a Hip-Hop album called State of Emergency, which will be a sanitized, issue-oriented CD.

Sources told AllHipHop.com that the actor, comedian and philanthropist will address issues like proper parenting, teen pregnancy, drug abuse, Black-on-Black crime and the dropout rate in America’s high schools.

Cosby’s album will not contain any profane language, nor will it offer any denigrating comments towards women.

State of Emergency would be the 35th album for the legendary comedian, actor, who released his first album Bill Cosby is a Very Funny Fellow in 1963. (Source)

The Huxtables are really showing their asses today!

Because who has time to verbally denigrate women when you’re too busy physically denigrating them.

If this actually comes to fruition, I’m gonna quit this bitch and y’all will have to call the MIB to replace me with “K” on this blog. I’d rather listen to the rugrats from Kidz Bop rap than Bill Cosby talking about “DON’T. YEEEEEEWWWWS. THE N-WORD, DOHHHHHHHH. PUDDING!”

Judge To Foxy: I Don’t Hear You!

29 01 2008

Wonky Brown’s request to be let out of prison early so she can undergo surgery for her hearing has been denied. You don’t hear me, though!

On January 17, Brown’s attorney Laura Dilimetin asked acting state Supreme Court Justice Melissa Jackson to amend the rapper’s sentence, so she could visit Los Angeles’ House Clinic tomorrow (January 30), where she received her initial treatment for her hearing loss.

On Thursday (January 24), State Supreme Court Judge Melissa Jackson ruled against the Brown’s petition.

Prosecutors argued that the 29-year-old rapper can receive the treatment that she needs in New York and labeled the request a “desperate and frivolous petition.”

In a four-page letter to Judge Jackson, Brown claimed that she was terrified in prison because she cannot hear properly.

“I am terrified of not hearing a fire alarm go off, or being locked in a cell, and someone not being kind enough to let me out, since not everyone understands the severity of my condition,” wrote Marchand. (Source)

I bet she can hear fine when they announce it’s time for food. And I don’t doubt someone would leave her in there during a fire, but not because they don’t know about her “condition”.

Apparently her hearing aid got messed up during an altercation with another inmate, who punched her in the ear. Now that’s gangsta! That’s what her ass gets for trying to talk bold all the time! When Lil’ Kim was in prison she knew her role and made nice with all the inmates. I’m sure she made a visit to some “boxes”, too, but that’s a discussion for another time.

Kelly Rowland Hates “Bootylicious”

29 01 2008

 

Kelly Rowland is going to get a mini-root put on her by Bey’s little sister Solorange for tombout Beyonce’s lyrics! She better throw salt over her left shoulder before she enters Casa De Knowles, just in case.

Singer KELLY ROWLAND hates the DESTINY’S CHILD song BOOTYLICIOUS - because she has heard it too many times. The hit 2001 track, co-written by bandmate Beyonce Knowles, is ironically one of the few singles by the girl group which features Rowland on lead vocals. But the 26-year-old insists she would rather hear any of the band’s other singles on the radio. When asked which Destiny’s Child songs irritate her, she responded, “Bootylicious. “Sometimes I’ll go into (U.K. fashion retailer) Topshop or be at the airport and that song will play and I’ll go, ‘Nooooooo!’” (Source)

It ponders me when celebrities’ inner monologue becomes their outer dialogue. LOL, I mean really. Didn’t their publicists ever tell them to think before they speak?

Kelly’s going to have to work an extra shift in Beyonce’s walk-in closet for this indiscretion, I’m sure of it.

Fresh over at C&D has some pictures of Kelly shakin’ a tailfeather (literally) from the UK, if you’re interested. If Kelly lost that Mama Knowles Blood Red lipstick she got on, she could still get it!

Don’t Think This Will Make Us Care About You

24 01 2008

Sigh.

Diddy is changing his name again.

The new title Combs is considering ties in with the brand name of his signature aftershave, and says the name reflects where he’s at in his career. “I have always evolved and taken a different name each time.

“Right now I want to be Sean John because that’s where I am right now”. (Source)

This is some Grade A Fuckery, fresh from the Foolywang Farm. Expiration date: About seven years ago, the last time someone cared about Puff the Magic Dragon or any of his stupid ass names. He can call himself “Rubber Chickensuit” for all I care, I’m not buying another one of his records.

Ho Sit Down!: Ghostface Killah

23 01 2008

Ghostface had the nerve to send out a MySpace bulletin with this YouTube bitching about his sales. I thought this cat was on the underground? I thought he was trying to keep it hood?

I’m cracking up because people on the comments are talking about how he stays slanging in his rhymes but now he wants to talk about how downloading music is illegal.

This is just a mess because he’s saying he has 100,000 MySpace friends and only 30,000 bought the album. Well I don’t know about everyone else but I saw his ass perform at UCLA in October and after that boring ass shit I didn’t even bother to download his album. He carrier pigeon’d that performance in and nothing salts me more than a lazy artist.

Moral of the Story: If you wanna pow-wow with Ghostface, go buy his album, show up with it to his concert and you can drink a 40 with him in the back of his Corrolla. The end.

Beyonce’ Is A Scab!

22 01 2008

 

Now she know she could have sat at home and watched this on TV with Kelly & Sol-orange! Just have Mama Tina put a hex on them writers and send Big Catdaddy Knowles to accept her awards. She is kinda wrong for this, especially since she has her SAG card. Tsk tsk Beyonce’.

Beyoncé’s father/manager, Matthew Knowles, may not have done her any favors by announcing that she wouldn’t let a Writers Guild picket line keep her from performing at the Grammy Awards.

Hours after her dad promised she’d be at the Feb. 10 event, people were ready to call the R&B superstar a scab. “Beyoncé was not aware her name was going to be used,” says one insider, who pointed out that the “Dreamgirls” actress is a member of the Screen Actors Guild, which wants its members to support the writers.  (Source)

I was supposed to be going to the Grammy’s maybe this year, so I am glad they aren’t cancelling it. I don’t have a SAG card, and quite frankly, I’m mad all my TV shows getting cancelled and ish. Boo!

Someone needs to go throw tomatoes and water on that Conflict-Yaki and teach Bouncy a lesson! Watch, one of the stagehands at the Grammy’s is going to short circuit her fan and blow sequins and hairpieces all over the stage when she performs.

Those writers are going to make her Pink Panther 2 script EXTRA bad now! LOL.

Corbin Bleu Butchers “The Star Spangled Banner”

20 01 2008


YouTube - Direct Video Link 

LOL I missed the fight this weekend, but Cuzzo left a comment about Corduroy Bleu singing (and bitchering) “The Star Spangled Banner.”

This was the only video I could find so far, and I wasn’t gonna post it, but ROFL @ the people taping’s comments. You can pretty much get the gist of his “performance.” If I find a better version, I’ll post it below, but the commentary on this vid? HILARIOUS! “How do you spell Corbin Bleu for Youtube?” *dead*

I don’t know what was tighter, his protein-catcher headgear, his ponytail, or his vocal cords. LOL the pitch was so terrible, the neighbor’s dog on the other side of my wall starting howling. When he cracked? LOL, Roy Jones looked like he wanted to crack that dude’s teeth.

You know Roy was thinking, “WTF!? Ashanti wasn’t available!? That ish is BANANAS!”

I think Don King could have done a better job with a cup of Throat Coat tea and a head cold. *smh*

Solange Knowles Says “F*ck You!”

2 01 2008

SoWhat Knowles wrote a Myspace blog tombout how she is going to use her middle finger more. Riiiiiiight. She’s talking about us (bloggers), I think.

this year feels very monumental for me, so maybe i get the point.
there a few things i want to achieve this new years myself.

use my middle finger alot more. i always think what person did that gesture and made it so famous for saying “f*ck you”! why wasnt it a pinky or a thumb? lol
but scince it does mean those clever two words i want to do it alot more.
its neccesary to be happy in life.
if you think about some of the most great and succesfull people and artist….. prince, oprah, bill gates, basquiat, andy warhol, murakami, michael jackson, kayne west, oh this list could go on forever…. they all had to say it once or twice in their lifetime.
people are always gonna try and tear u down for your individuality, your creative drive, you personal choices and all the little things that make you you!
people rag on me for everything, from my choices in shoes and lipstick color all the way up to my hair! but at the end of the day YOU have to be happy with YOU!
so what if you have the urge to do things that cant be formulated or has four sides?
black and white can be so boring without a touch of color! (source)

LOL Solange. I like you. I really do. I was even one of the 5 people minus your moms who owned that first album of yours (let’s not split hairs, 5, 5,000…it’s all less than your sister and Kelly LOL). However, “be different.” We applaud you for that. What we don’t applaud is looking a hot tail mess and calling it “different.” Not matching your colors and not combing your hair does not equal different (see above).

If I walked out of the house with a blue shirt on and pink pants and some red tennis shoes, people would talk about ME too. That’s life LOL. It’s especially difficult when you are a star LOL. When I step out onto a red carpet, I’mma look fresh. And matching.

Writing Myspace blogs calling out people is so passe’ and it often makes people give YOU the middle finger LOL. I know that spell check really isn’t a big deal, but what is “scince” LOL. OK I’mma stop, despite the fact the first sentence of the blog was “please exuse my typos, im not writing a literature essay to get into harvard.” Right — so why not run a spell check?? Just asking.

Fonzworth Bentley Thinks We’re Checking For His Ass

2 01 2008

Fonzworth Bentley, best known as Diddy’s bitch, is making an appearance on tomorrow night’s Conan O’Brien to promote his new etiquette book (wow). He’s also working on his debut album, which will be distributed through Kanye’s G.O.O.D. label.

We haven’t really talked about how the writer’s strike really affected our Hip-Hop community,” said Bentley speaking exclusively to AllHipHop.com. “I remember, I sent the book to everybody. Conan O’Brien was the first person that called and the week I was supposed to go on his show, the strike happened. I’ve been in limbo like everybody else. So I feel very fortunate that January 2nd will be their first day back, and I’ll be on the show Jan 3rd.”

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Fonz is a guest on the week when the networks have no writers and are scrambling to find people to show up, since a lot of actual famous people are refusing to cross the picket line in a show of solidarity. A mess at him acting like people are just clamoring to get that Fonzworth Bentley exclusive. I’m sure Fonz fell somewhere between Naturi Naughton and the Hip-Hop Midgets from the Chris Brown performances on their wish list of guests, and Naturi was probably busy prepping for her role in a stage play called “Playaz Neva Change” or some shit.

Fonzworth Bentley is also gearing up for the 2008 release of his debut album Cool Outrageous Lovers Of Uniquely Raw Style. (C.O.L.O.U.R.S.)

While he had planned to release the title track “C.O.L.O.U.R.S.” as his first single, plans to shoot a video for the song featuring Lil’ Wayne and Faith Evans, were interrupted by the untimely death of Pimp C, who is also featured on the song.

Bentley has shot a video for his first single, due out this month, but will not release the name of the single for fear that the release will be preempted by internet file sharing. (Source)

Bitch please! Ain’t nobody checking for a wack ass first single from this cat. He better put his taste for “colours” to good use and go do some coordination down at the Gap where I’m sure he’ll be working in a few months.

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!!!

Rihanna on Being ‘White’, Beyoncé & Josh Hartnett

18 12 2007

Rihanna told Allure in her 12,000th magazine cover this year about how she used to get bullied in school for looking white, her “relationship” with Beyoncé and dating rumors.

On being bullied at school for being too ‘white’: “I was a little confused as a kid because I grew up with my mum, and my mum is black. So I was cultured in a very ‘black’ way. But when I go to school, I’m getting called ‘white’. They would look at me and would curse me out. I didn’t understand. I just knew I saw people of all different shades and I was light. Now I’m in a much bigger world.”

On Relationship with Beyonce:“She’s Beyonce, and I’m (her) new protegee. When we see each other we say hi. We’re not enemies, but we’re not `friends’ friends.”

On dating Josh Harnett rumors:“This is what really happened. He and my management, they have each other’s contact information. I went to (the New York club) Pink Elephant, and he came by. All of a sudden, the next day, I’m seeing that we were kissing and hugging up each other. You can’t even go out with a friend who’s a celebrity and have a good time without people making (bleep) up. Well, at least he’s good-looking, right?”

On her “edgy” haircut: “The label didn’t want me to do this look. But cutting my hair, it made me stand out as an artist. I don’t care who likes it — this is me.” (Source)

Say it with me, everyone…


HO, SIT DOWN.

How the hell are you supposed to be someone’s protege and you don’t even talk to them “like that”? And I’m pretty sure she came out and told everyone she was dating Josh Hartnett, because Lord knows this girl hasn’t met a piece of publicity she didn’t want to scrape up. By the by, Fefe Dobson called and she wants her swagger back for that “edgy” haircut she invented in 2003.

Omarion and Bow Wow visit 106 & park

11 12 2007

O-Fool and Lil Roof Roof ( Thank “Just…Damn” for that one ) came on 106 & Park yesterday to promote their new album Face Off. Omarion just decided that he was going to shake things up a bit and get his “I got Cherokee in me!” on. He needs to just cut it off, make it into a wig, and give it to Janice Combs so she will have a new one to look bad in. Just in time for Christmas!
