Sound Byte of the Day

“I’m such an actress, you didn’t see me? I’ll have my own show soon. That’s what it was for. I want to do television all the way around. I screen write — I want to get hands on with all of the sides — as far as production and television, whether reality or sitcom. I’m a creative writer first so you’ll definitely be seeing a lot of me. It was a platform.” -Khia on doing “Miss Rap Supreme” (Source)

Dare to dream, precious.

Smile of the Day: “I believe the children are the future…”

21 04 2008

…well, so does Bey-Z.  I can’t believe (…nevermind, yes I can) that there is a Beyonce Contest.  What’s the winning prize?  Holding wigs and wiping ass for Ay Bey Bey?  At least Kelly Michelle Jay-Z can get a day off.  Anyways, there’s many entries of this contest on YouTube.  Just type in “Beyonce Contest” in the search engine.  This is the only one I’m posting: Read the rest of this entry »

Sound Byte of the Day

What is the most misunderstood thing about you?
That I’m a desperate aging starlet (who) does desperate things for attention. That always blows me away - “Well her career is almost over, that’s why she is doing this” My career is very successful, and I have other chapters that I am going into. And stop believing everything you read on the internet! And stop making up stuff and putting that on the internet…and check your facts. Don’t be happy to hear about another person’s downfalls. Let’s stick together and not tear each other down. -Aunt Vivica, star of Three Can Play That Game (Yes. Yes.) in Upscale Magazine

Well, SOMEONE’S Gotta Pay For Her Album Promo

10 04 2008

SMH. I never thought it’d come to this, but Chilli’s slangin’ bootleg bags, y’all. No, they aren’t the Prada knockoffs you can get on Canal (that would be better), these are some bags with blank canvases that you can personalize. I thought Michael’s trademarked this like fifty-leven years ago, but I guess not.

Bags by Chilli’s personalized photographic handbags allow you to advertise yourself, your loved ones, your hobbies, your passions, your travels, your artwork, your company or anything you desire–it is all up to you! Put yourself in the designer seat and decide what you will walk around advertising everyday. The Bags By Chilli logo is not displayed anywhere on the outside surface of your bags. There is only a discrete interior label. (MORE)

First of all, it’s “discreet” — “discrete” is a math term. (/end English major rant) Second of all, “Bags by Chilli”? Really? If she was gonna go this route you mean to tell me she couldn’t have come up with something better than that?

Look, I know she is coming out with a solo project and she was signed to Akon’s label for awhile — maybe she still is, but maybe she needs help paying for the promo. I’M NOT MAD AT HER BEING ON HER GRIND. But come on, you’re Chilli of TLC, I know y’all went bankrupt in ‘96 or whatever but I’m sure you have some “No Scrubs” money lying around. A customizable bag company? I really didn’t think you’d go out like this, my dear.

“Basketball Is The One With The Hoops… Right?”

7 03 2008

Usher has become a partial owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I am excited about becoming part of this ownership group and this team,” said Usher. “I will be actively involved with the Cavaliers on many levels, including the game experience and our role in the community. I plan to spend a lot of time with the Cavaliers and look for Cleveland to be my second home town.” (Source)

I’m sure Gushers did this to reclaim whatever small bit of masculinity he had left before marrying Maneka. She probably has his ass wearing a French maid outfit with a feather duster in hand to knock the dust off that vajayjay that has pushed out about thirteen kids, the oldest of whom is probably Usher’s age.

Doesn’t this quote from him remind you of when you were in middle school and kids ran for government? Talking about they’re gonna make the food cheaper, there will be Red Kool-Aid in the drinking fountains, condoms in the bathroom, etc. etc., even though the whole damn school knows they ain’t gonna do a thing but approve or veto the streamer colors at the dance. Maybe he can pick out the fringe on the cheerleaders’ skirts?

All Aboard The Flop Express

29 02 2008

I guess Solange is really going through with this singing thing. Not only that, but she wants to ruin some other peoples’ careers before they’ve even started.

R&B singer Solange Knowles will be holding auditions for singers, bands and individual band members with a great look, strong musicianship and stage presence to become members of Hadley Street Dreams, her band. All members must be able to dance.

The Hadley Street Dreams, a 60s-inspired full band, will perform all live shows with Solange in support of her upcoming album to be released this August 2008 on Geffen Records, Soul Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams. (Source)

The Hadley Street Dreams? I want this to become a cult meme NOW. Let’s just say I know the theme of the next get together at my crib.

For some reason I picture Solange dressed like Punky Brewster singing about some ethereal shit. I have an idea you’re gonna have to be high to understand what’s going on in these songs. Or high to buy the album at all.

Crunk Grapes

29 02 2008

Get ready to line up around the block at 7-11 for this one! Lil’ Jon is putting out his own brand of wine.

The wine, called Little Jonathan Winery, reportedly includes a merlot, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. The wine is already being distributed in California and will hit shelves within the next two months. (Source)

LITTLE JONATHAN?! That sounds like the name of a doll or something. Don’t you get Chucky vibes?

As for this wine, I’ve never had a taste for cat piss mixed with red Kool-Aid and a hint of Bushmills, so I probably won’t be a fan of this.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Arnold

27 02 2008

Gary Coleman and new wife Shannon Price came on “The Today Show” and got interviewed by Al Roker. You know it’s a time-filler when the weatherman is interviewing your ass. I’m dead at him saying he wishes people recognized him for better things than “Diff’rent Strokes”, like an ONLINE PROMOTION FOR “I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT BUTTER”.

Shannon looks dazed and confused. Either she really didn’t know he was famous when she decided to get married or she’s dumb as hell, because I think I might make as much money in a year as Gary Coleman does.

Props to Jessica for the heads up.

In The Name of Samwell, I REBUKE THEE! New Gnarls Promo Pics

13 02 2008

Wow, ummm………………………….

……………………..*blank stare*

Peep these new Gnarls Barkley promo pics for their upcoming album. Now, OK, I know Gnarls Barkley are supposed to be all eclectic and zen and WHATEVER, but whomever’s idea it was to put Cee-Lo in a wedding dress Dennis Rodman-style needs to be immediately taken out back and flogged. DO NOT WANT.

And it’s not that Cee-Lo is ZESTY per say, but this is exhibiting zestay-like TENDENCIES. I’m just saying.

Danger Mouse is Kevin Michael in 10 years ROFL. Cee-Lo WOULD be the one wearing the dress though! WHY LO!? WHY!? “Closet Freak” indeed.

I have no words. I am truly speechless. I’m sure this “represents” seem deep explanation of how they are married to their music, blah blah blah, but just…no.

Again, I ask: What Would Marvin Gaye do!?

*dies and cranks dat with Ike Turner*

Janet in Parade Magazine

6 02 2008

This “safe for old YT lady consumption” wig is NOT the bee’s knees! More like she swept the floor with it, threw it on her head, stooped and kissed JD, and ran out the house. Bleh!

Ya’ll know Parade, the old-school YT folk magazine that comes in the Sunday paper LOL. I guess they wanted “Perfect Patty” instead of “Miss Jackson (if ya nasty)” for this photo shoot. Janet is all covered up and homely. Yay! LOL. She looks great though, and healthy. I wonder where all that winter weight she was packing during the summer went!?

I feel like in the last 3 pictures she looks like she’s giving tips on how to dress for a job interview LOL!

More pics after the jump!

Video: Sneak Peek Of Deion Sanders’ Reality Show

1 02 2008

LAWD, I posted about this a while ago, thinking “surely, they jest!” Well, no. Color me as wrong as Keylolo’s blonde locks!

They are going to be airing a 22 minute “SuperSneak” peek during halftime of the Super Bowl on Sunday on Oxygen, and it’ll also be streaming online at *sets the Tivo*.

Please tell me this fool does not ride around his house on a SCOOTER. I’m so dead and buried in Ted Manson’s backyard, WTF LOL! Here I was calling my Big Mama lazy for making me come from the other side of the house to “get her some water.”

His wife though? Hellloooooo, she fine! She got kind of cut arms too. I LOL’ed when he ran over the decoration on the ground. “What is that supposed to be?” “It’s an ‘I’ Deion.” “Oh, I thought it was a goal post.”

Ashanti’s New Single Cover

26 01 2008

I’m sorry, it looks like Ashanti is getting ready to do some coke of that mirror table or whatever LOL!!!!!! Straight “Studio 54″.

I can’t help but think that. “Cokehead!” She just waiting for Nelly to chop it up with a razor and line it up. Maybe that’s how she lost all that “weight” everyone was claiming she put on? Nah, I doubt it, let me quit.

This idea should have been shot down like Ja Rule’s career. If you haven’t heard the song, it’s posted here. I was really hoping they’d release another song as the official single. Ashanti caught “Alicia Keys Syndrome” with all that hollering out of her range and stuff on this new song. Me no likey!

Let’s Be Honest: Do We Really Care?

23 01 2008

Rihanna got her 97th janky ass tattoo recently (does she realize these aren’t the same as the washable ones you get at Round Table Pizza?) and it looks a lot like Chris Brown’s, so people are speculating that they might be dating (she also borrowed his jacket last week). I don’t think they really are dating since this tattoo looks like something they keep on reserve for girls who come to the parlor at age 16 with a forged consent form and ask for something “pretty”. But if they really are, they should have gotten a better set of matching tattoos. You know, like ones that said “Sit” and “Down”.

Nickel Got Them Chompers Fixed!

21 01 2008

Awww, how cute. I mean, it does look better, but Nickel still has teeth of death. I don’t envy the orthodontist who had to be up in that grill during the surgery. What if he woke up and bit down? That shit looks scarier than The Hyenas from Lion King.

New Music & Photos: “Shawty Get Loose” // On Set of Lil’ Mama’s “Shawty Get Loose”

16 01 2008

Carrie-Ann Moss + Strange’ had a baby ya’ll.

Lil’ Mama - “Shawty Get Loose” Feat. T-Pain & Chris Brown (Remix)

This pic right here is a TRAGEDY.

I have high hopes for Lil’ Mama but she is SO VERY SKRONG in the face. Her Lil’ Kim “How Many Licks” look + Bobby Jones hot pants + Solange’s weave = A Hot Mess. Can you believe she’s on her 3rd single? At least they are sticking with her. They released this song a while ago with her, but I guess they figure with T-Pain and CB she will have a shot. Po’ thang.

I’m glad she’s the Voice of the Young People and all that, but I hope they don’t start rocking this look in the 18+ club. I will seriously walk around with a leather belt and just start poppin’ these little girls on they hot a**es cause CLEARLY they ain’t getting it at home.

Anyway, check the song above (which I kind of like) and check the rest of the pics after the jump!
