A Hot Mess!

Knocking wigs askew since 2006.

Rawr! Janet reminds me of Eartha Kitt for some reason in that upper right-hand picture ROFL. That nose is tragic though. :(

Janet gives an interview to a magazine called Prestige Hong Kong. She talks about her new music, JD…the usual basically. Some interesting tidbits below:

There are conflicting reports of Jermaine being your boyfriend, your fiancé or your husband.
We’re not married. I call him my boyfriend. Jermaine calls me his wife, I’ve heard him say that as well . . . But not yet. I don’t know if that will ever happen. Maybe, I really don’t know. It’s because, at least for myself, this space that we’re in I think is so nice. I feel like maybe marriage is a jinx for me. I’ve done it twice; I’m not trying to be Elizabeth Taylor and do it eight times. Where we are is good and we’re happy and there’s no drama. And plus, I think there’s something about having a spiritual connection where you don’t have to have a certificate to validate the love. So it’s all good – if you make those vows to one another and you know that you have a connection, that’s all you need. I really do think [marriage] is just a way for the government to keep tabs on everybody, I truly do. Now people think you’ve got to grow up and get married and have a family, you don’t have to do that if you don’t want that. Just because everyone else does that doesn’t mean you have to.

Do the Jacksons still get together for family gatherings?
We didn’t this year and my nephew, bless his heart, said, “We’re not getting together this year and I’m really mad because it’s going to fall on my birthday so everyone was going to be there for my birthday!” Some of us don’t celebrate birthdays because we’re Jehovah’s Witnesses, but he was still going to pretend and be like, “This is a party for me!” (source)

A Jackson Family gathering!? Oh to be a fly stuck in Jermaine Jackson’s “juices and berries” slickback! Could you imagine?

Michael over in the corner with his 3 kids, playing Nintendo Wii with all his “neices and nephews.” Jermaine doing the “Soulja Boy” with 3T. Randy and Tito trying to get past security at the door. Rebbie not showing up cause she’s normal LOL. LaToya running from….everyone.

I saw Janet and Jermaine Jackson at the Why Did I Get Married? premiere here in Los Angeles, and he wanted a photo. He had to ask his sister and he brought the paparazzi over. They were so cold to each other until the cameras went up, and then they were all smiles. Then, after the cameras went down, they went right back to being cold and he walked away. Hilarious.

Happy New Year!

New Music: Lil’ Wayne - “I’m Me”

Posted by The IPS under Lil Wayne, New Music

Lil’ Wayne - “I’m Me”

Wayne released a 5 song EP called “The Leak” to digital outlets only on Christmas Day in advance preparation for his highly anticipated [not by me!] “The Carter III” album in February. This song comes from that, and features Wayne’s seemingly “flow of consciousness” style of rap.

For some reason, I like this joint. Some of his lines grabbed me. Like “these n*ggas is ducks/ call me Scrooge/ I’m swimming in bucks” LOL, or “sleeping on a n*gga like I’m rapping in my jammies” in reference to the Grammy committee last year.

Wayne is good, this is true. This is nothing groundbreaking or anything, but I enjoyed it. He’s witty and gritty all at the same time. I stumbled upon this joint and I’ve listened to it a couple of times, so I thought I’d post it.

Happy Sunday!

“I’m Raz B” Feat. Ricky Romance & James DeBarge

What in the name of Samwell-what-what-in-the-buttedness is THIS foolishness!?

I can’t even…I don’t…I have no words….I just…ok I got a few.

1) Who is choking on their dime bag in the beginning?
2) Did Ricky Romance hold up the Ed Hardy store? Please tell me he doesn’t have “an endorsement deal.”
3) Raz B…ummm…you are NOT the 45th coming of Michael Jackson. Please stop.
4) Give your son back his Casio keyboard and quit making tracks to the “demo” song! WTH!
5) The sound effects are…like the 45% retarded Tourette’s version of Timbaland’s “baby cries” from “Are You That Somebody”
6) The video says that this song features James DeBarge. That better not be him back there dancing, or I’m calling El and Chico to come beat his TAIL.

I mean, this video is so bootleg to boot. It looks like they shot it on their Sony Cybershot that Chris Stokes gave Raz as a hush gift or something.

They are joking right? I’m being punked right? COME OUT ASHTON KUTCHER AND TAKE YOUR BEATING LIKE A MAN!

You have put the Internets through turmoil with your allegaytions, then recanted, then had your brother calling 911 like Wyclef & Mary, and now you put out a half-a** music video shot by your friend who goes to Santa Monica College. I thought this was a public access commercial LOL. “Don’t litter in Hollywood.”


*passes out from the idiocy and nignantcy*

Sweet Minty Jesus be a trip to Promises! This dude needs some help. He needs to listen to Twinkie Clark’s song “That Shall He Also Reap” and/or read Galations 6:7. I wouldn’t stand next to this dude in open field, God bout to hit him with that 8000 volt! LOL.

No Charges For Brandy!!

Posted by The IPS under Brandy, Breaking News, Oh Happy Day!


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.

How much do I still love this song?! HAHAHA, I won’t lie, I still occasionally listen to this and “T-Shirt & Panties” LOL.

Adina Howard actually is still putting out music independently. She had a song called “Outside The Club” that I heard a while back that was kind of cool. She got a myspace. LOL.

But oh, the 90’s!! Sweet Minty Jesus be a time machine and take me back. I used to get in trouble for listening to this song. It was so bad, but I loved the “bump bump” part LOL, and the accompanying move that went with. This is SUCH a 90’s video though. I swear, this video and a bunch of others all looked the same, especially like Mary’s “Be Happy,” from the silver bubble coats to the background dancers and the black background LOL.

Call me crazy, but I see like, two modern videos in this. I see lots of Rihanna’s  new style & “Umbrella” and also that 3LW video for “I Do (Wanna Get Close To You),” which I actually kind of liked (but don’t tell no one).

Glad to see we are still swagger jacking from old stuff! Or, paying homage is it?

Them nails too, lawd. And when she walked up in the house party with one suspender undone on them overalls, I flashed back HARD. Good times. And them dudes were straight THIRSTY. Adina was NOT that cute LOL, but semi-cute and a freak are ok. LOL!

Anyway, I KNOW ya’ll love this joint. One hit wonder of that year.

I thought his anatomy was bird-like? LOL! (Pause)

Let me quit. Don’t let Pretty Boy (Bow Wow) see this, or he might leave Nappy Boy (Omarion). Or is it the other way around? I forgot who wears the protein catcher in the relationship and who doesn’t LOL!

I know Chris is legal and thangs, but to all you grown a** women giving little Chris Breezy that lustful side-eye, I’m going to have to pull out Chris Hansen from “To Catch A Predator On You”:

Umm hmm!

That’s probably air and umm, the rigging. This post is for Ratchet and CUZZO though LOL. I’m off to find pics of Megan Goode jogging in “Stomp The Yard” which I watched last night. Pls excuse me.

Flo Rida has the #1 record in the country. His song “Low” featuring Teddy Pendmyearsdownbleeding unseated Alicia Keys‘ “No One,” which had been on top of the charts for 5 weeks. 178,000 people bought it and it had increased airplay.  WHY!? But Alicia isn’t dead YET.

On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Keys becomes only the second artist since this chart began using Nielsen Music data in 1992 to succeed herself at No. 1, as “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” jumps 2-1 and trades places with “No One,” which had ruled for 10 weeks. Nelly accomplished the feet in 2002 with “Hot in Herre” and “Dilemma.” (source)

While “No One” had to grow on me with all that constant straining she does on that song (”When the rain is falling dowwwwwwwwwwwn!” LAWDY!), I’d rather hear that than “shawty got loow looow looooow” featuring Chocolate Predator Pain on voicebox.

I just don’t get it…I really just don’t get it. Who is calling in and requesting these songs? Dude says “Apple bottoms” like, 50-11 times. Are we not tired of strip clubs and big ass and titties?! 2nd thought, don’t answer that. I want to keep hope alive!

*superman’s that hoe in the club*

Maybe I am jealous since the only place I make it rain at is in the shower. That water falls dowwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnn like Alicia’s “Itchy & Scratchy” vocals.


And wait a minute, what happened to Nelly’s song “Wadsyaname”?! That song came and went faster than a 40 Year Old Virgin in a Las Vegas hoe-ranch. Sheiza!

I KNOW this can’t be real, much like the Janet-tron fan made picture LOL. I HOPE this isn’t real.

But if it is….OHEMGEE.

Umm…I have no words…except for that Nas looks…very scholarly? Which I am sure was purposeful being that the title is Nigger LOL.

Could you imagine the following exchange:

YT Man: *walks into record store* “Excuse men, can I get that ‘Nigger’?”
Black Store Clerk: “Yo, WTF you just say?! Did you just call me a nigger?!”
YT Man: “No sir, no, I just want to get a copy of Nas’ latest record ‘Nigger’!”
Black Store Clerk: “Yo homie, GTFO out of my store before you get stole on!”

Heads are going to roll next year. Don Imus might as well get out his confetti and streamers because he’s going to have a field day with this.

Here’s to hoping this is fake though. Maybe this is why Jay-Z quit LOL. He didn’t EVEN want to deal with the fallout from THIS album.

I feel like Katrina Laverne should go back to real estate. Not just because she’s swagger jacking “Nightrider Kim” from the “How Many Licks” video in those first two pics, but because no one really cares. What’s up with her lips in that first picture?

Not saying that she didn’t have her time in the sun or whatever. As a rapper however, she’s just been gone too long for us to really care. And her whole “bitch” theme is really, really just played out. It’s all about female empowerment now ain’t it?

I really don’t want to hear about her being the baddest anything, or just being vulgar just for the sake of it. Ya know? We are tired. We are over it. Go cut a Gospel album with ya girl Missy and Monica or something LOL. Help Trick Daddy with his cases, and help him make a record. Maybe ya’ll could do a Bonnie & Clyde ‘08 duo? I think you and Trick would have Beowulf & Camel beat by a MILE.

Trina’s new album comes out February 12th, 2008 and is entitled “Still The Baddest”.

No one mention Rihanna please and that DANG haircut or I will send Mr. T to your house to sing “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” with a bullhorn at 3 am!

Ciara Performs For Diana Ross At Kennedy Center

Posted by The IPS under Just Stop, Videos

YouTube - Direct Video Link 

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I think it’s fitting that Ciara is doing a tribute to Diana Ross. They both sing about the same LOL. I never really thought Diana was a GREAT singer, but she made it work. She knew her lane, and had the best songwriters and producers backing her up. I stans for old Diana and especially some Supremes! Diana was all about the image though; haven’t ya’ll seen “Dreamgirls” LOL.

HOWEVER, I hate to say this, but I really felt like if this was Bewilderbeast she would have KILLED this. Or even like, Kelly Rowland, Tamia or Fantasia. I think they could have gotten someone better. Hell, they could have got Omarion with his hair unbraided, he be looking like he channeling Diana anyway. Plus, the song might have been fitting! LOL! Let me stop.

Ciara looks like a Disco Drag Queen reject from Studio 54. She dragged out that silver lame pants suit out of Auntie Diana’s closet, cut out some cleavage holes and the sleeves off, and added some fabric from Fabricland as a “classy” shawl LOL. Too dead.

The Kennedy Honors are SO boring. Old white people doing a golf clap to great music being covered by unworthy “current” stars. I never watch that ish.

Ciara was so flat on the verses in “I’m Coming Out” that I am glad I am only seeing the 2:17 second long clip. I know Diana Ross wanted to jump off that balcony and beat her with gold-covered flat iron. Claude hammussy!

Ahh, used to love this song. 112 had cuts, though I couldn’t stand Slim’s whiny voice. When they moved to Def Jam though, they lost all their “goodness” I think. That “Hot & Wet” foolishness was bleh. “Peaches & Cream” was straight though LOL.

Them and Jagged Edge straight fell OFF. “Cupid” still gets spins on my slow jam mixtapes though, and “Let’s Get Married” will be sung by someone at my wedding ROFL.

OH LORD, Mase. Jesus I hate Ma$e. But back in the day, Diddy was churning them out. RIP Biggie.

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!!!

Video: Omarion & Bow Wow - “Hey Baby (Jump Off)”

Posted by The IPS under Videos

YouTube - Direct Video Link 

LOL. Bowmari release another video from their glass-selling record “Face Off.”

I wonder how much this video cost? I’m sure green screen is getting cheaper and cheaper as technology advances, so maybe this video cost nothing since it was a) directed by them (according to their “Access Granted” which I just watched) and b) is almost entirely green screen.

Umm, sidenote: I was watching their “Access Granted” on Tivo, and at one point Bow Wow is all “I’m going to get me some of these girls homie” and Chris Stokes was like “no Bow, one night, give it a rest! No girls. No!” LOL, I couldn’t help but snicker. OBVIOUSLY, this was made weeks and weeks ago, but I just thought the timing of it was pretty funny.

Bow Wow has his protein catcher on, and Omarion actually let his scalp breathe for .5 seconds and took them braids out. Other than that, I don’t like this song. I didn’t particularly care for this video either. And Omarion was wrong for them red pants ROFL. I lol’ed when Bow Wow said “you can take us both home” or something to that effect. Whatever girl went with them would TOTALLY be left out of all the sexing ROFL. Let me stop.

These two aren’t bringing anything new to the game. They think they are, but not really. It’s nothing creative! I just don’t like it. They should have just stopped at “Girlfriend” as I won’t lie, that was catchy.

Jam Master Jay just rolled over in his grave for them using that “Tricky” sample.

Yip Yip and Soul Glo should go ahead and release some ringtones and call it a “a valiant effort.” Like my girl divaty said, “I can’t believe Bow Wow’s fail has rubbed off on Omarion. He used to be pretty good.”

OK, I am so entirely dead about this whole ~45 seconds that I am going to lay under my Christmas tree and sing “Sweet Little Minty Baby White Jesus Swing Lo.”

Did he say “your kids will f*cking love it!”

OMG!!!!! AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA I want to buy one and give it as a gag gift. I posted this a while ago…but I am so dead at the commercial.

“Remember when I long-dicked you and broke ya f*ckin’ ovary?”

Omarion has released a statement now with his $.02. I still don’t know who to believe in this whole debacle, but I think that Omarion’s “statement” sounds like a big fat lie. PR drivel. I’d hate to be Chris’ publicist, or anyone affiliated with this whole mess. Their Christmas and New Year’s are officially in the toilet.

NEW YORK, Dec. 26 /PRNewswire/ — Below please find a statement from Omarion regarding the accusations against Chris Stokes made by Demario “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton.

“I want to be on the record as saying that “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton are lying regarding Chris Stokes. Chris is a father figure to myself, and many others in the industry. He’s guided us, helped raised us and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect to and look up to. I have spent countless hours, days, weeks and months with the man since the age of 5 and have never once seen him behave inappropriately.
He’s married to my aunt and I know this man very well. I stand behind him with no question whatsoever,” said Omarion.

“I have grown up around Chris and this is crazy to me. These people have damaged me, and my reputation and I won’t stand silent and will do all within my means to speak the truth about this matter,” said Omarion. (source)

Like my girl Fresh say, “something in the milk ain’t clean.”

I think it would have been better for him to not say anything…

Sure, he grew up around them, but was he with them 24/7? LOL. And Chris is married to Omarion’s aunt? There’s too much family overlap. And, though I agree that some of those videos were very obviously edited, I’m not sure what is going on here. This whole statement just seems not very well thought out though.

I am tired of writing about this. Can Whitney Houston to show up with Mary J. Blige’s ‘06 dookie braid and a “powdered donut” nose? LOL.
