Janet Jackson confesses she enjoyed sex more than her lovers did - until she met Jermaine Dupri. "I feel like I finally met my match," she tells Essence magazine. "In relationships it was always the guy telling me, 'OK, hold on, wait a minute.' I'd ask my girlfriends, 'Aren't we supposed to be the ones who say, 'Wait, not tonight, I have a headache'? This happened through two [marriages] for me. I thought something's not right here. But with Jermaine I don't have to say anything; he knows I'm ready. Any time, any place." (source - - spotted @ CL)

It is also reported that Jermaine has also said that he "likes to receive oral more than he likes to give." Well, I don't know about you guys but this is a way too much information.

It should be a very sad day for Star Jones. Whenever a little kid gives you the side eye, you soul should ache. Kimussell #2 is so cute. Kids like that make me re-think this whole baby thing. But then I come to my senses.

Toni Braxton Like You've Never Seen Her Before

. . . with clothes on! Shug Avery will be opening in the main room at the Flamingo Casino on August 3rd. Someone is after that Celine Deion paper, that's for sure. Gotta get it how you live it. Even if its getting felt up while you are shaking your shimmy on stage. Here are a few pictures that were snapped yesterday at rehearsals.


Another Damn Petition
Petitions have been popping up all over the internet lately. I've been thinking about composing one my damn self. What the subject will be is still unknown at this point. But when I think of something, you'll be the first to know.

There seems to be some debate over MTV possibly blacklisting the video for "Call On Me." People are speculating that the infamous "nipple gate" incident is where things stem from. Here's the petition:

To: American Media

It is blatantly obvious that MTV is refusing to support its first ICON, Janet Jackson, due to the Superbowl mishap. As music lovers and viewers of MTV, we find this very offensive because Janet Jackson and the Jackson family are landmarks in African-American history, popular culture, and in American History as a whole. 20 years ago, Janet Jackson was one of the pioneering artists who helped make the music video what it is today, and, consequently, contributed to MTV attaining the international musical status it currently enjoys.

Janet is an inspiration to all people, but she especially inspires women and African Americans. But while Janet's work is noticeably absent from MTV's programming, Justin Timberlake, the other participant in the Superbowl incident, receives heavy promotion from MTV, despite his relatively minor stature in popular culture compared to Janet Jackson. It is disheartening to see someone who has inspired so many people to succeed receive blatantly disparate treatment. This observation is even more troubling given MTV's prior history with race and gender. Janet's mistreatment threatens to undermine much of the progress the network has made on race and gender issues over the last 25 years.

Janet Jackson remains a musical powerhouse after 20 years at the top of the charts. Her current song sits at number 25 on Billboard's Top 100 -- above the tracks of many younger "stars" in rotation at MTV -- and it is among the top played songs at Urban and CHR radio formats. MTV's failure to play and promote this beautifully artistic video, despite the song's success, makes the network's disparate treatment of Janet Jackson even more apparent.

Please join us, in signing this petition to stop this horrible and unjust blacklisting of one of the music industry’s most accomplished and legendary artists.

Fans of Janet . . .

So what do you guys think?

Trick Still Loves The Kids

If you growed up (his words not mine) the way he did, you gotta understand Trick love the kids. T-double-D took a break from throwing money at my local hoes and gave away school supplies. Pitbull also came out in support.

Now, if we can only get Trick to take a shower.

Rihanna @ The World Series Of Poker Party At The Rio

I know what you're thinking. There is a reasonable explanation to all of this. Trust me on this one.

You see, Rihanna's luggage was lost at the airport on her trip out to Las Vegas. The only items in her carry-on bag was her Slimming Shaper and red belt. So she decided to make due with what she had. That's talent! If you guys are going to hate on her then go on. But I would like to see you do that shit. Not only does that take courage, but it shows her growth as an artist.

Ha ha ha! If only that shit was true.

Can I Get An Encore?

'Cause I can't get enough. Cause you can't get enough. Ladies and gentlemen, "Deja Vu" part duece. Thanks Chloe and Marnita for the laughs.


Rumor Control : Did Trina Have A Miscarriage ?

The webmaster at Trina Fan just sent me this email over. I'm not really buying it but if it is true (which I highly doubt) then my prayers go out to Trina. But if it isn't, then I'm going to need for people to stop making up shit! First Steve Urkel kills himself and then a month later Kel Mitchell (from the Nick show "Kenan and Kel" dies mysteriously.

Miami born Rap Princess "Trina", who's real name is Katrina Taylor, was hospitalized on June 28, 2006, which was one month ago. According to the private nurse who has asked to keep her name "unknown" to the public said, "The rap star was rushed into the emergency room due to internal bleeding". The nurse said "that she felt very bad for the 5 foot 2 raptress as she cried for non other than her "beau" and fiance Dwayne Carter known as Lil' Wayne" . . . Trina's ultrasound revealed that she was expecting a baby boy! According to the nurse, Trina cried "God please take me and save my baby" . . .she was released 2 days later from the hospital to family members. In all due respect, our hearts go out to Trina and her family.

Fresh Flicks: Fantasia's Borthday Party

These pictures may be old to some but they are new to me. Here are a few pictures from her birthday party last month. It looks rather ghetto but a good time is a good time.
Thanks Crystal (check your email) !

Diddy Denies Marriage Talk

Love is the pits (*snickers*) .

Sean "Diddy" Combs is denying recent reports that he is about to marry Kim Porter, his longtime girlfriend and mother of his eight-year-old son Christian Casey. One rumor had the couple planning to exchange vows on Aug. 1 during Diddy's annual White Party, which is being held this year in St. Tropez, France. A rep for the Bad Boy Entertainment mogul says, "It's not true." (

I swear when I see these two the lyrics to Laura Nyro's "Wedding Bell Blues" pop into my head. Oh well. Speaking of his royal Diddyness, you can peep his new Myspace video here. Yes, he is still in the bathroom. Thanks Da Real for the info!

Shits & Giggles: Donuts = Ecstasy

I've been repeating this clip over and over for the past 15 minutes. A big mau mau inamua mua to Rich for this one!

Lupe Fiasco and Jill Scott On The Set of "Daydreaming"

Whenever I see a picture of Jill Scott smiling it makes me always feel all warm inside. Like there is something real there. I would continue to shower her with compliments but I know somebody will show up in the comments section in about 15 minutes saying that she sales crack to the same kids she helps with the Blues Babe Foundation.

Did Prince's Protoge Cause Split?

Music-industry insiders are whispering about the real reason Prince split from his wife of five years, Testolini Nelson. "Prince has been spending an inordinate amount of time with his new protege, Tamar," said our source. "He is trying to get her signed with a major label and has her doing the rounds. Everyone takes the meeting because of Prince, but she's just a pretty girl singing Prince songs. It is not very good. He hasn't found a taker, but he is smitten with her." Calls to Prince's office were not returned. (Page Six)

I know a lot of you may be scratching your heads wondering who exactly this Tamar is. MTV recently did a little 3 minute spotlight on her as an artist to watch. Back in the she was in the group Girl Tyme along with Kelly and Beyonce. You can find out more info on her here.


Fresh Flicks : Venus and Serena @ "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby" Premiere

About two years ago when I was leaving the good life in my dorm, a few of my guy friends were all congregated in the group room watching Rap City. As always they was busy with their usual banter. One of them mentioned how it was their dream to get down with two sisters at once and they all agreed. So of course me being the sarcastic bastard that I am, I tossed up the Williams. I have you know that everybody in the room born with testicles gave me the side eye.

And in my best John Weatherspoon impersonation I responded, "Well,what's the problem?"

I know I haven't been writing for Harris Publications for long but may I suggest featuring Venus and Serena on the cover of King? It would sale like hot cakes, son! The prisoners would eat it up too.

Let me stop.

Candids of Oprah and Beyonce + Mama Tina

Before I get started I have to share something with you all. This could be very well a good indication of how their offspring may look in the future. I'm just saying.


07.27.2006 Nippy Watch

My apologies for the Nippy updates being few and far in between. From what you guys have been telling me in your emails, she is out in California with CeCe Winans. I don't know how true that is but I just hope she is doing well.

Tina Brown is making her media rounds again. Here is an excerpt from her interview with Jamie Foster Brown in the August 2006 issue of Sister 2 Sister. I will scan the entire article later. My computer is on that kryptonite right now.

Sister 2 Sister: The tabloids are saying that Whitney is broke.

Tina Brown: But guess what? She has like 40 people on her payroll. They all have chauffeurs and buying brand new cars and all this, but she's broke? Come on! She did Europe and she got $750,000 a night and when she got back I said, "Nip..." I always try to encourage her to handle her own bills. And come to find out, I said, "Where's all your money, Nip?" She said, "They say I owe people." I said, "You don't owe people . . . " Come on! And all that money does not go to drugs. They spend a lot of money on drugs, yah. But it's not $750,000 worth.

S2S: Do you know if Whitney has a brain tumor or not?

TB: I don't know. But the talk in my family is that she does! On the outside world, no! But in my family, yes! And (a family member) said the other day, "It's getting worse. Let's take her to the hospital." And (another family member) said no because of the media. "We don't want them to know." So they got her on a phone and took her to--she's going into her childlike states and everything. All the symptoms are there.

S2S: Does Bobby know about any of this?

TB: Bobby got a phone call in front of my sister. He dropped the phone and started screaming and crying. Come to find out, that's what was said.

S2S: What was said?

TB: They called from California stating that she had a tumor. Why are they keeping this a secret, I don't know. But it's so much. It's so much!

Yeah it is so much, damn.

Ashanti & Nelly At The Premiere of "John Tucker Must Die"

If I was about 10 years younger I would probably give a damn about "John Tucker Must Die." But since I'm not you already know. Any movie advertised as "this year's 'Mean Girls' " is not my cup of tea.

I must be getting soft because all of these celebrity couples are becoming cute to me (Janet and Tattoo included). Here are a few pictures of Ashanti and Nelly at the movie premiere Tuesday. Ashanti's family also came out to show their support. Her dad's hair is awesome.

Key Kids, Are You A Side Line Ho?

If your man doesn't take you to church and leaves you alone on the holidays, you're a sideline ho. Hey, those are Monica's words, not ours.

The R&B diva's next release, 'The Makings of Me,' is due in September. The song 'Sideline Ho' was actually inspired by an ex who cheated on her with (gasp!) a video model. Co-produced by Tank, the mid-tempo track finds the new mom exposing the havoc wrought by that chick on the side.

Despite the obvious fightin' words of 'Sideline Ho,' Monica tells AOL Music she was "much nicer" on wax than in real life. "I felt a little sad when I walked away from the situation, even for her, because he had no desire to be with her," she says. "Looking back now, I kinda get it. I believe in love strongly and expect a lot out of relationships, so I think I was just too much for him altogether."

Before the whispering starts about said cheater's identity, let's clear one thing up. "[He is] absolutely not my son's father," says Monica. "Hell no!"

Your Two Cents Required : Janet's New Video

Tonight I not only watched the world premiere (pre-miere, puh-puh-premiere) for the video "Call On Me", but it was the first time I heard the song period. I actually did this on purpose because I wanted to get the full "experience." I sort of wished I would've done the same with "Deja Vu" but I couldn't seem to shake the song. Damn you Mathew!

Anyway, you know the drill. Questions, comments, or concerns?

Candids of Will Smith In NYC

I'm so happy to see Will out and about. Whoo, he isn't on Suri Cruise watch any more. I was starting to think he joined a cult after listening to a promotional copy of Wicked Wisdom's cd. But I will put away my Kerney Thomas prayer hankie since all is well. Seriously, my umi was worried for a minute.

But peep the guy on the side in the first photo. Look closely now. Can you spot a dirt angel? I smell manna from heaven.
