A Hot Mess!

Knocking wigs askew since 2006.


I dug for this one y’all and I mean DUG so you better appreciate. Where do I begin? A song dedicated to the worst hairstyle to hit the scene since the jheri curl (”I’m servin’ ‘em like two scoops of chocolate, check out how I rock it”). As if that wasn’t enough, Ms. RAGE had the nerve to say “let me loosen up my bra strap” and “I’m hittin’ MCs like HAAA-YUKE-IT!” LMAO!! No she didn’t just quote Ryu from Street Fighter!! The special effects in this are about equivalent to the video I made for my 4th grade California Mission report. I’m pretty sure that storm background is a Windows Media Player effect? SNOOP, you screwed the pooch on this one, no pun intended.

NAS brought a dozen old school rappers out the woodworks for the remix to his track “Where Are They Now”, which blends the original track with the throwback ’90s hip-hop tracks that they created. The original “Where Are They Now” references a lot of these rappers, asking what happened to them after their peak in the ’90s.

This shit is wild! It’s got people I totally forgot about, like MIKE G, CHIP-FU (from the FU-SCNHNICKENS, lmao!) POSITIVE K, plus legends like MONIE LOVE, DAS EFX, ROB BASE, ORIGINAL SPINDERELLA, and others. I’m freaking out!

Well things are just getting worse for BRAN MUFFIN NORWOOD after she accidentally caused a car wreck in LA last month that resulted in a fatality. Just one day after the California Highway Patrol called for Brandy to be charged for the accident, the parents of victim Awatef Aboudihaj announced they are suing Brandy for $50 million for causing their 38 year-old daughter’s death, TMZ.com reports. Now while I feel for the family, I think someone should tell them their chances of getting anywhere near $50 million from BRANDY is slim to none. Does Brandy even have $50,000 to spare? She better start selling those funky wigs overtime to cover the legal fees.

Diddy hooking up with Sienna Miller?

Posted by Erin T. under Cheating, Diddy

Diddy seemed to have been caught off guard when he was spotted entering a New York hotel Sunday morning with Sienna Miller.

Diddy, father of newborn twins, was spotted dropping off Miller at her NYC hotel this morning after a rumored night of partying together in the city. Diddy had a trapped rat look when he noticed cameras watching from across the street — and we’re told a bodyguard was sent over to the photographer to try and get him to delete the footage.

This is outrageous! Those twins can’t even hold their necks up and he’s already getting straight up caught with other hoes! I know Kim is trying to pull a Juanita Jordan and all but that would require marriage. I bet her and Juanita talk on the phone all the time about this and Juanita is like “girl, just hold out 15 more years. 15 more.” This is a mess. I am also laughing my ass off at how desperate Sienna Miller is to be considered A-list that she hooks up with Sean. I mean I guess money wise this was be an upgrade since Jude Law isn’t really doing big things anymore but looks wise? And poor, poor Aubrey. Y’all know she is laid out in an alley somewhere crying her eyes out.

Reports have surfaced that the British bank that is paying $400 million to build a new arena for JAY-Z’s New Jersey Nets was built on profits from the slave trade.

According to TMZ.com, Barclays Bank, which is shelling out $400 million over 20 years for naming rights for the Brooklyn arena, was founded by a family that profited from its ownership of slaves in the 18th century as well as being involved in controversial dealings with the South African government in the 1980s.

Hov, who made headlines last year by boycotting Cristal because of comments made by its managing director, has not responded to the controversial reports.

A representative for Barclays responded by saying its slave-trade past should be understood in the context of history and it will be spending $2.5 million on enhancing basketball courts all over Brooklyn.

Jay (born Sean Carter) joined forces with real estate developer Bruce Ratner and several other partners to purchase the Nets franchise in 2004 for $300 million. The group plans to have the Nets playing their first season in Brooklyn in 2009-10.

The team’s new arena will reportedly be called the Barclays Center.


This is just a hot mess! LMFAO @ that bank saying “Oh y’all. That was history. Here, take some money for more basketball courts in Brooklyn. We know how much YOU PEOPLE love your basketball.” Couldn’t they have given some SCHOOLS some money? A library? SMH!

I know everyone thinks they’ve heard it all about this situation, but there’s some interesting stuff in this video. I am falling out that MAT had the nerve to just come out and SAY “We knew as long as it was BEYONCE and KELLY doing vocals, there wouldn’t be much of a difference”. I wonder how Mabel MICHELLE felt when she saw that. LMFAO @ Farrah on the verge of tears. Poor thing.

Jay-Z stan comes clean on Dr. Phil!

Posted by Erin T. under Beyonce, Jay-Z, Trainwrecks

“I’ve been stalking Jay-Z more than three years,” Katrina says matter-of-factly. “Jay-Z is the CEO of Def Jam [Records]. He’s a big celebrity. In my mind he’s more than that. He is just my dream. I can’t seem to think of anybody else. He is my all and all.” Katrina buys every magazine Jay-Z is in, has called him over 300 times and e-mails him 200 times a day, but he has never responded. She even had a T-shirt made up with Jay-Z’s and her picture, that she says she sleeps in every night. “Jay-Z’s real name is Shawn Corey Carter. When I’m writing songs, I would just call him Shawn. I make up my own songs and leave them on his voice mail,” she shares. “I went to a Web site that has gossip, and they believe anything you say. I e-mailed them a letter, saying I wasJay-Z’s ex. I also went as far as saying Jay-Z liked me better than [his girlfriend] Beyoncé. He’s in love with me,” she reveals. “Everything was made up.”

Katrina’s friends have pointed out that she’ll never be able to take Jay-Z from Beyoncé. “I don’t care. To me, I am Beyoncé. I am every man’s dream. I’m accomplishing it by just looking in the mirror and saying, ‘Jay-Z’s going to be my man,’” she says. Katrina explains that when she heard a rumor that Jay-Z proposed to Beyoncé, she snapped and tore all his pictures up.
“I want to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z one day in public and just go there and snatch her weave out.” Della says, “Katrina is a stalker. Katrina needs a reality check. She needs to get her life together. I’m scared she’s going to get charges pressed against her and end up in jail.”

Katrina admits, “I’ve been stalking people my whole life. When someone rejects me, I get obsessed with that person. When I was 9, it was this man who went to my church, and I just had a huge crush on him. I called him over 100 times in one day.’” Read More

A MESS! This is sad! I can just see her rolling around on Camel Cigarette packs and shit while holding his pictures. LOL! I’m mad at the fact that she went on tv and talked about this like it was alright. I really hope she gets the help that she needs. Lol her stalking Jay-Z. Really? Wow!

A new look for Trina

Posted by J under D-List, Oh Lawd

These pictures from Ozone Magazine suggest TRINA is working on shedding the extra weight, maybe in anticipation of a new album? Ah hell, it’s not like I care either way. But I was getting sick of seeing her showing off her love handles in tiny ‘fits - this is much better. I see “Stank Hos-R-Us” is still providing her wardbrode, however. And what’s up with the pale makeup? She’s going for that PERSIA WHITE look.

The California Highway Patrol recommended Monday that actress-singer BRANDY be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in a freeway crash that killed a woman motorist last month, a city attorney’s spokesman told The Associated Press.

The CHP referred the matter to the city attorney’s office for review, said spokesman Nick Velasquez.

“The office is currently reviewing the case and determining whether the evidence warrants the filing of a misdemeanor charge of vehicular manslaughter,” Velasquez said.

A message seeking comment from Brandy’s publicist, Courtney Barnes, was not immediately returned.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in county jail and a $1,000 fine, Velasquez said.

Prosecutors couldn’t say when they would make a decision about whether to bring a case. If charged, Brandy wouldn’t necessarily have to appear in court and could have her lawyer enter a plea, Velasquez said.

Brandy, whose real name is Brandy Norwood, has publicly expressed condolences to the victim’s family, Barnes said last week. Barnes also has said Brandy wasn’t under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.

Brandy, 27, was driving a Land Rover on Interstate 405 on December 30 when traffic slowed and her vehicle struck the back of Honda driven by Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, according to a CHP report.

Aboudihaj’s car hit another vehicle, slid sideways into the center divider and was then hit by another car, the report said. Aboudihaj died at a hospital from blunt-force injuries, according to the coroner’s office.

Brandy, who earned a Grammy in 1999, has made five albums. She began her recording career at 14 and acted for film and television, starring on the sitcom “Moesha” from 1996-2001 and most recently as a judge for NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

A message left with an attorney for Aboudihaj’s family was not immediately returned.


This is rough!!

EDIT: Some “fans” of Brandy made a petition for her to go to jail. This is just foul! Read part of the petition here:

Witnesses who saw the accident stated that Brandy was “obviously disoriented and highly upset”. Brandy has been looking rough in public the past few months and seem as though she is really going through some things and need help.

LMFAO! and LMFAO @ it only having 3 signatures.

LINDSAY LOHAN is losing friends, colleagues and her professional reputation left, right and centre at the moment according to different reports.

In addition to being uninsurable, she has reportedly been blacklisted by some top Hollywood stars because after being accused of unprofessional behaviour on set and disrupting filming schedules over the past year.

According to the Sun, a number of Hollywood old hands, including JACK NICHOLSON and MORGAN FREEMAN, have told their agents to automatically turn down any film that already has Lindsay attached to it and are hoping that if enough people join the embargo that Lindsay will shape up or ship out of the Hollywood sphere.

Next, the Mirror is reporting that Lindsay has lost a friend in SEAN LENNON after making Chapter 27 about Mark Chapman, the man who shot JOHN LENNON.

Sean believes the movie is in bad taste and is unhappy that Lindsay agreed to star in the movie which premiered at Sundance this week. Sean said recently: “It’s a tacky thing to make a film about. Lindsay was my friend.”

And she’s also reportedly annoyed fellow residents at the Wonderland rehab Center by freely coming and going from the facility. Another rehabber told TMZ, residents are annoyed that Lindsay has left the center every day this week - including visiting her apartment, lunching with friends on Wednesday and getting her Mercedes serviced yesterday - and when she is at Wonderland, she has had numerous visitors including a personal masseur and hairstylist.

However, Lindsay’s spokesperson Leslie Sloane-Zelnick insists: “Lindsay is 100% not getting special treatment. She’s getting the same as everyone else. This isn’t the Betty Ford Clinic, it’s not a lockdown facility. There is personal time.”


Lmao. This story just gets more and more ridiculous. LMAO @ her getting massages and shit while the common folk tremble in the corner alone! Her spokesperson is a wreck for trying to defend this mess.

It’s been a minute, so why not.


They did the damn thing vocally. I played this album OUT when I was a kid! I’m not so sure about this video, though. They employed that ’90s logic of making things look deep with black and white and random shots of people fighting/hugging/running. The interpretive dancer was gettin’ it too, but I’m not sure WHY exactly.

Brandy’s car kills driver in LA

Posted by J under Brandy, Oh Sh*t

Actress and R&B singer BRANDY was involved in a fatal, four-car accident on a Los Angeles freeway last month that started when her sports utility vehicle hit another car, police said on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old former star of the TV comedy Moesha was not injured, but the driver of the car she rear-ended with her Land Rover in the December 30 crash died, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The victim was identified as Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, a married mother of one, said CHP spokesman Leland Tang.

No charges or arrests have been made in connection with the accident, and no formal determination has been made as to what caused the crash, which was first reported by the celebrity news website TMZ.com.

A statement issued by Brandy’s publicist said: “She wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased” and asks the media to “respect the privacy of everyone involved at this time.”

The singer-actress, whose full name is Brandy Norwood, was alone in her vehicle and no alcohol or drugs were involved, Tang said.

Brandy told officers she was driving at about 65 miles per hour before the crash occurred.

“We’ve impounded all four vehicles, and the outcome of the mechanical inspection is coming to us today or tomorrow,” Tang said.

“Barring any mechanical difficulties on Brandy’s part … then there’s the very high probability that she is the party most at fault or the contributing party.”

Brandy, a native of Missouri, burst on the recording scene with her self-tilted debut album in 1994, launching such hits as I Wanna Be Down, Baby and Brokenhearted. Her fourth album, Afrodisiac, was released in 2004 with a lead single, Talk About Our Love, produced by Kanye West.

Last year, she served on the panel of judges for NBC’s summer show America’s Got Talent.


“This..isn’t a good year for her.” -Erin T.

I shouldn’t be laughing at this but all I could think of reading this article was how Brandy stans accuse MONICA of killing her ex. Guess this will shut them up.
