A Hot Mess!

Knocking wigs askew since 2006.


This Is Why She’s Hot

Posted by The IPS under Beyonce, LOL, Rihanna

So, I finally figured out why Mya has been pushed back more than the ozone layer over Los Angeles -


Don’t believe me?

This website explains all!


Check out the description below:

Beyonceitis is the destruction of your career by the overall power of Beyonce Knowles. Beyonceitis is a serious disease that has destroyed the careers of several artists although a few have been able to have successful careers in spite of it. Beyonceitis is also used to describe the overall domination of popular culture by Beyonce Knowles. Beyonceitis is most severe on artists who attempt to release albums around the same time as Beyonce or perform on the same award shows as Beyonce. Doing so has resulted in the embarrassment of several female artists. Some describe it as Beyonce being overexposed, or as Beyonce having a monopoly on the music game, but truthfully if you are a good enough performer you would shine regardless of who else you are in competition with.

Beyonceitis is a problem that embarasses a lot of people. No one wants to admit that one person has caused so much destruction. No one wants to admit that one person has bitch-slapped (with her ring hand) the entire music industry. If you suffer from Beyonceitis do not worry. Do not feel ashamed. Beyonce shits on a lot of people. You are not alone. There is help. There is hope.

I think they left out one more very important person:

Teairra Mari
Teairra Mari

Though one could say she suffers from Rihannaitis. Cause her and “Um-buh-rel-luh” dropped at the same time but I guess Jay “liked” Rihanny more, cause Teairra got dropped faster than Dame Dash’s Black Card account.


*though I wish I had LOLLLLL.

Kim Kardashian covers local magazine LA Direct’s June issue. She looks good but the red lipstick is a bit much. I’m falling out at the magazine having an article about Roscoe’s.

Beyoncé was recently featured in French magazine Questions de femmes, where the singer claimed that she is not high maintenance and that her hair is natural.

“I actually don’t like wearing make-up, I’d rather be natural,” she says. “My hair is natural and when I go out I don’t need to spend hours deciding what I will wear or which make-up to put on. I know exactly what I want.”

Uhhhh, I sure hope her hair looked like it does in the first picture when she said this. I know the entire lacefront industry is laughing their ass off right now… to the bank with Beyoncé’s money.


Edit: I’m falling out over here because Mu said Beyoncé looks like Beebe Bluff from “Doug” in the first picture. LMAO!!!

I just made a post about how this album is never coming out, and I guess she heard me because Mya is trying to come back with this one. It goes hard! I’m sure she “f-ked for this track” but I ain’t mad because the beat is vicious. She was trying to decide between this one and another lame track called “Ridin’” so hopefully if she has any sense in that head/wants to sell more than 10 copies when this album drops in 2010, she’ll go with this.

Kobe Bryant wants out of LA

Posted by J under Drama

Kobe Bryant revealed he wants to end his tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers in an announcement that surprised-but didn’t shock-NBA fans.

“I would like to be traded, yeah,” Bryant said on 1050 ESPN Radio in New York. “Tough as it is to come to that conclusion there’s no other alternative, you know?”

Bryant has said he has lost all trust for the Lakers organization, save for coach Phil Jackson. Owner Jerry Buss quickly released the following statement:

“We are aware of the media reports. However, Kobe has not told us directly that he wants to be traded. We have made it very clear that we are building our team around Kobe and that we intend for him to be a Laker his entire career. We will speak directly to Kobe and until we do that, we will not comment publicly about this.”

The drama seems to stem from a reported inside leak to the media that Kobe was responsible for the trade of former Laker Shaquille O’Neal in 2004; both Bryant and O’Neal deny this accusation.

Mya was spotted at Europe’s AIDS foundation gala Life Ball looking rather down and out/crackish. The expression on her face in this picture simultaneously makes me laugh and feel sad. Look at the half-hearted wave. This just screams “Motown is never releasing my album and I’ll be forced to do second-rate hair magazine interviews for the rest of my life.”

She looks a little better in this second picture but still “off”. Pobrecita.

I guess we have only have ourselves to blame watching so much Youtube because now all these celebrities think we care what they do when they aren’t performing. R. Kelly, you are not an enigma. We don’t give a shit about what you do unless you record yourself pissing on another fetus because then you’ll go to jail for sure.

He must really be on that good shit now because here he is babbling about eating a cookie and trying to be witty (”I’m gon’ be R. Belly!” Damn, Robert. You’re the next Chappelle). Can’t we at least see you spray painting that fake facial hair on? Toss me a fucking bone over here, I’m trying, I really am.

I know we took you back with this one. Erin and I were cracking up because Paula Jai Parker is in this playing one of the love interests. This guy isn’t very good looking and he can’t even sing that well so I guess that’s why his career didn’t last long. This song was hot though, and EVERYWHERE.

Foxy Brown took time out of her busy schedule (running over strollers, beating up beauty supply workers, etc.) to put out some new music. This track is featuring Grafh & Prinz (who?) and is either from Brown’s upcoming album Black Roses (due in stores September 6) or her mixtape.

It’s not bad! I’ll give her that. She only has one verse and it’s coming across like she wants to be the female Game but overall I’m not mad. This won’t work as a first single, though.

New Ne-Yo video “Do You”

Posted by J under Ne-Yo, Videos

Whatever. I’m just bored now and I think he is too. I like this song, though. It’s one of the few I can stand from that 1998 demo tape he calls an album. I love the settings in this (Malibu, the Hollywood Hills, etc.) and the whole sunset thing but it’s not exactly speaking to me. Glenn Lewis did the whole “we just barely missed each other” thing in 2002 and it was a lot better.

Beanie Sigel came out swinging for Pharrell and Kanye West calling them gay last week, even though I’m pretty sure Kanye is to thank for some of his biggest hits (”Guess Who’s Back”, much?). But fuck all that, I about died when Erin linked me to this post over at Rhymes With Snitch showing Beans about to make out with Peedi Crakk on tape. There’s some drag queen club music on the tape which had me screaming! This whole tape is just a mess and 100% suspect. We can’t see it but I bet Beans is squeezing Peedi’s ass too.

Kelly decided to suck it up and just knock a King Magazine shoot out of the way! I mean why not? When your friend steals your shine by taking your Vibe cover and when your album gets pushed back 45  times for Solange and 50 Cent what else do you have to lose? Kelly looks really happy!

Brandy News

Beleaguered Brandy Fires Back, Gets Served
05/27/2007 12:31 PM, E! Online

As remorseful as she might be, Brandy apparently doesn’t think much of the lawsuits leveled against her.

In court documents filed Wednesday, the 28-year-old singer “specifically denies each and every allegation” in the wrongful death complaints filed against her by relatives of the woman who died of injuries suffered in a four-car collision that the plaintiffs claim was caused by Brandy Norwood.

The December 30 accident occurred on Los Angeles’ 405 freeway when Brandy’s Land Rover rear-ended a Toyota Corolla being driven by 38-year-old Awatef Aboudihaj, who in turn hit 82-year-old Donald Lit’s Toyota Tercel. That caused Aboudihaj’s car to bounce into a different lane, where she was broadsided by 50-year-old Mallory Ham’s vehicle. Aboudihaj died of her injuries at a nearby hospital the following evening.

The California Highway Patrol has recommended that the L.A. City Attorney’s Office charge the Moesha star with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, but prosecutors have not yet decided whether to file charges. Investigators determined that Brandy wasn’t under the influence of alcohol or any other substance at the time of the crash, nor was she talking on her cell phone or similarly distracted.

However, that hasn’t stopped the legal floodgates from opening. Three wrongful death suits have been filed, one by Aboudihaj’s parents, one representing the deceased’s two children, and, earlier this month, one by Aboudihaj’s husband, Maroune Hdidou, for the loss of “support, maintenance, solace, moral support, companionship and comfort” that his “faithful and dutiful” spouse provided him.

“This answering defendant specifically denies each and every allegation in the complaint and further denies that plaintiffs have been damaged in any sum or sums whatsoever,” read court papers obtained by E! Online. (View the documents here.)

In the filing, Brandy asserts her Fifth Amendment privilege to not incriminate herself and requests a jury trial.

Ham is also named as a defendant in Hdidou’s suit, but playing on the same side of the field as Brandy apparently hasn’t given the woman any overriding sense of solidarity.

According to documents obtained by tmz.com, Ham is also suing the former America’s Got Talent judge for negligence and motor vehicle damage, claiming that Brandy “carelessly and negligently owned, operated, entrusted, leased, repaired, modified, maintained and/or controlled a 2007 Land Rover Range Rover so as to cause a multi-vehicle accident that severely injured plaintiff Mallory Ham and killed another person.”

The defendant was aware of the “probable harmful consequences of speeding…following other vehicles too closely…and tailgating other vehicles,” the complaint states.

Ham is seeking unspecified general, special and punitive damages for medical expenses, loss of earnings and other costs, as well as “past, present and future pain and suffering.”


Now I don’t think this is fair. I mean, Brandy wasn’t doing anything illegal. And if you live in Los Angeles, you know no one, I mean, NO ONE drives the speed limit. Especially on the 405. I regularly speed down that joint, because really, I’d be fleeing the Valley too if I lived there.

But I digress — all these people suing? I mean, it’s sad someone died from the accident, but I really feel they are just trying to get it because they can.

But 3 different lawsuits? It was an ACCIDENT. They happen. She wasn’t high on coke AND drunk (Lindsey Lohan), she wasn’t drunk (Eve, Paris, etc.)…nothing scandalous. She wasn’t on the phone. It was just an ACCIDENT.

People are just treating Bran Bran so unfair and I just want her to make a new album with Rodney and make all this go away.

BTW, I am boycotting “America’s Got Talent” because Sharon Osbourne is a loon-boon and I really don’t think it was fair.

Nick Cannon won the coveted Studio Magazine award for “Breakthrough Actor of the Year Award” at Cannes for his role in last year’s film Bobby. Nick was also the first African-American to ever win the award. Also today, pigs flew, Blu Cantrell got off drugs and Diddy and Kim Porter got married.

“I am humbled and grateful to have received such a coveted award by Studio magazine and Chopard at this prestigious event at the Cannes Film Festival,” Cannon said via a statement. (SOHH)

In all honesty, I can’t hate too much because he was actually pretty good in Bobby (for real), but still, it’s Nick Cannon. What’s next, Bow Wow winning for Tokyo Drift?

Rihanna performs in Germany

Posted by J under Hotties, Rihanna

Rihanna looks great, though she’s starting to favor Fefe Dobson a bit which is kind of weird. I wanted to be the first to admit I was wrong about Rihanna-both the song “Umbrella” and her album as a whole. I almost fell out the other day because I cut it on and it was… kind of hot? I still don’t know how on God’s green earth she’s on her third album but that’s neither here nor there. Get it, girl.
