Things got ugly when Brandy showed up with two of her friends (one a Scientologist, one not) to bible study at First A.M.E. (FAME) in Los Angeles last week.
Apparently the group of friends had just come from a Scientology meeting and had a bunch of questions challenging Christian principles being taught at the bible study. While Brandy asked a question regarding lust, her friends got into a brawl with members of the church in the back of the sanctuary. Chairs were flying, cuss words were being tossed! Not your typical Wednesday night bible study scene at all.
Members of the congregation had to break the fight up. It is also reported that Brandy knocked over some chairs on her way out of the building.
And get this, she isn't even a member of the church! Just ignorant.
T.Error Mari has announced on her Myspace profile that she has left Roc-A-Fella Records (read: got dropped) and is currently looking for a new deal. Well look no further! With the recent success of Gel-N-Weave's hit single burning up the southern club scene, I have inked a distribution deal with Koch worth a reported $20 (before taxes of course) .
Kitchen Ass Hair Records is still the company and bitch I'm the boss.
Rapper DMX announces the launch of DMX and DMX Signature collections, which will include designer apparel, headwear, outerwear, footwear and accessories for Fall 2007.
DMX, the quintessential rapper with the complexities of a poet, creates collections that have the same hard-edge danger hybridized with a finely crafted clothing and accessories collection that has the quality of couture but keeps it "real" by staying true to timeless style that speaks of lifestyle not trend.
Initial product offerings for the launch will be available at various online retail sites, DMX concerts, and limited better specialty stores. It's no surprise that DMX has decided to get into the fashion business, his creativity and direct sense for what he likes is both unpretentious and cutting-edge. For years, DMX's choice of clothing has always bordered on the rough edge of hip hop mixed with the practicality of the no nonsense, no frills clothing that active and rugged men want. His penchant for secret pockets and durable gear reflect his over-the-edge lifestyle. Dangerous grounds warrant reliable clothing that doesn't compromise the overall look. (Press Release)
I hate to be the bearer of bad news for the person who typed up this press release but X's weakness for secret pockets has nothing to do with his "over-the-edge lifestyle." That nigga needs as many stash spots for his, ahem, medicine as he can get.
Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams @ The "Stranger Than Fiction" Premiere
When a Lifetime movie is developed (not if, when) about Michelle's dramatic escape from the harsh living conditions of the crypt and come back, I vow to Tivo that bitch. I'm crossing my fingers that Terrence Howard is cast as Baby Daniel.
There is something about Kelly's outfit that makes me want to ask her for a tithe envelope. I just want to give my 10 percent! The girl looks good though, no hate here. Both of the ladies look lovely.
So the next time you see them on the red carpet don't expect the same results. You know there are certain people out to get them.
These alleged hook-ups are becoming more random with each passing day. Who in the hell are we going to hear about next, Dylan from Da Band and Fantasia?
Tyra Banks is wasting no tears over ex-boyfriend, Madea's Family Reunion producer and star Tyler Perry. In fact, a source tells Star that the supermodel/mogul has been busy playing footsie with rapper Chingy! The pair first met on an episode of Tyra Banks' talk show last year when Chingy revealed to Tyra that he had a thing for fine women's feet. Tyra immediately tore off her shoes and plopped her tootsies right down on Chingy's lap -- embarrassing the poor rapper! (It seems that Tyra had neglected to have a recent pedicure.)
Hoping for a second chance with the handsome St. Louis native, Tyra recently invited Chingy back to her show to tape not one but two episodes for November sweeps -- and this time, Tyra made sure to have her toes done! "On the first episode, Tyra tried to kiss Chingy, and he seemed to be taken aback by her forwardness," an audience member tells Star, "But the next day, Tyra teased Chingy, saying, 'I have a fresh pedi!" Chingy immediately rubbed and kissed Tyra's bare feet and then said, "I know I was a little taken back the other day, but now I'm ready for a real kiss!' and the two locked lips! You could see the sparks fly!" (source)
Nothing says November sweeps success like Chingaling. Wow, desperate times call for desperate measures. The idea of Mama Tina having her own segment in the show doesn't seem like a foreign concept any more.
Glamour Magazine Honors The 2006 Women of The Year
Bless Rosario's wonky eyed heart. She looks like has been slapped touched by a special ed angel. Meanwhile, Catherine Zeta Jones is laying on the Queen's chesticles like they are a twin pair of Serta mattresses. I'm telling Michael Douglas!
Iman & husband David Bowie; Catherine Zeta Jones & Queen Latifah; Rosario Dawson; Queen Latifah; Rosario Dawson & Iman
"Kanye's ex on why she's more than that." Oh, really? I wonder if that article is about what new and exciting things Brooke has been doing with her Myspace profile template since Kanye announced his engagement.
This shit is more suspicious than the pictures of Ne-Yo getting some head leaking amidst gay rumors. Are babies the new beards?Say it ain't so! Cousin Nate, you better not try to adopt.
Congratulations are apparently in order for New Edition singer Johnny Gill. The 40-year-old entertainer is the proud parent of a baby boy, who is now apparently five months old. The boy, Gill's first child, lives in his hometown of Washington, D.C. (Yes, he was the subject of my Sept. 4 Can't Say Names. The singer still has a long way to go to catch up with his best bud, actor Eddie Murphy, who is expecting child number six with former "Spice Girl" singer, Melanie Brown (also known as Scary Spice). (BV Buzz)
That's funny, I never realized Amerie even had a swagger to begin with. Subliminal shots aren't just for rappers looking to stir up controversy any more. On the track "Because I Love It" from her new mixtape, Amerie takes aim at an unknown subject saying the following:
I'm saying who told ya'll / Amerie would be back on the block /It's been a minute / But I see the fake has gotta stop / Six months and ya'll done checked my style / Thinkin' I was MIA / That's wishful thinking child/It's obvious to see/ Chickens try to bite it /But they can't cop my delivery / My style, my aggression on the track / When ya'll chicks know ya'll wasn't singing like that, yeah! / So let me break it down for ya / To the ground for ya / Go and chase that track / Pay a hundred stack / But you can't buy my sound / Can't take my flow / Can't bag my swag/ No / Nooooooooooo . . .
It's so obvious to see who she is talking about. Kelly Clarkson, duh!
Nah, most people think that she is trying to get at Beyonce. I haven't heard the song yet but Ill Seed from AHH Rumors said that the way she holds the "noooooo" note at the end of the verse is similar to SWSNBN's "Green Light," which sounds a lot like "One Thing."
A spy told Page Six that Michael Ealy "was quite fixed on" Ciara at her 21st birthday bash Wednesday night at Marquee. She was the b-day girl so that may explain why Halle's ex-boo may have been giving her some extra attention. I'm not going to throw all my available salt in Baby Syke's game though. This would be a major upgrade from her previous relationship with Kibbles n' Bits.
WTF Files: FOL's New York & Red Oyster's Interview With Orock Orock
Whoever said that YouTube is the equivalent to public access television hit the nail dead on the hell with that comment. This shit plays like the beginning of a porn scene. I'm waiting for three other men to come out and get the orgy started. I can't help but assume that the interviewer Orock(x2) is one of Akon's cousins. I hope he isn't an illegal alien also.
She didn't sing, but Whitney Houston's presence alone made her shine among a room full of glittering stars at Saturday's 17th Carousel of Hope Ball.
It was the singer's first step back into the spotlight since seeking treatment for substance abuse and leaving longtime husband Bobby Brown.
"I feel great," said a blond Houston, wearing diamonds and black Armani. Sounding more calm and focused than she has in years, Houston clearly was touched by the outpouring of love.
"She's looking at the light, instead of darkness," said Houston's pal and the evening's honoree, Quincy Jones, who has known the singer since she was 16.
Houston was escorted to the event by music producer Clive Davis, the night's other honoree. He noted, "She's been through emotional trauma, and everybody's rooting for her. We're going to make a killer album." (source)
Nice jacket Babyface. Is it from the Dr. Bobby Jones collection?
It's been a while since we've last checked in with Janice Combs. Although I give Janice her fair amount of shit from time to time she doesn't seem all that bad. Behind all that make-up inspired by the hooker from "Car Wash" and platinum blonde synthetic tresses is probably a good woman. She reminds me of my local neighborhood candy lady who hustle goodies so that she can send her incarcerated son a little something at the end of each month and to support her bad wig habit. Believe it or not Janice used to be a foxy mama back in the day. I had to do a double take myself, ha ha.
THE OPENING OF THE NEW RALPH LAUREN MEN'S SHOP // ASHLEY STEWART EVENT
Follow Up: Baby Believes In Love And All That It Can Do For You
The hot topic across the net yesterday was this picture of Baby and Lil' Wayne sharing a kiss. Well, the Birdman decided to clear the air in a radio interview. (Click here to listen)
"Before I had a child Wayne and all of em was my chul'ren, ya heard me? Wayne to me is my son, my first born son. And that's what it do for me. That's my life, that's my love, and that's my thing. That's my lil son, ya heard me, I love him to death. One hundred to whatever. . . "
Baby then dismissed the haters saying that he can "go to the bank in the morning and buy whatever I feel like it." Whatever nigga. I can go to the 99 cent store and ball out too but you don't hear me bragging. I'm even willing to bet that I can buy a brand new pair of Birdman Lugz on Ebay for under $5. Take that, take that, take that. Thanks Huhonee for the link!
You know those donation boxes labeled "give the gift of sight by donating an old pair of eye glasses" at your local optometrist's office? I'm convinced that a similar system for wigs and hair extensions is in existence. How else can Eve explain that fried, died, and blow dried yaki shit sitting on top of her head?Bless her heart.
The plug was pulled on Mooriah (Hip & Pop got me saying that shit) Carey's weekend concert today because of poor ticket sales and what promoters said were the pop star's "unreasonable demands." Basically, the bitch wasn't worth all the hassle.
Carey was to perform Saturday at an outdoor space near Hong Kong's Central financial district. Promoter Concerts Asia said it had only sold 4,000 tickets, despite a "substantial" advertising campaign.
"We have decided to cancel the event effective immediately due to both the poor response of public ticket sales and also due to specific last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans," said a statement posted Thursday on the promoter's Web site.
Concerts Asia declined further comment, and contact information for Carey wasn't immediately available. Hits by the 36-year-old Grammy-winning singer include "We Belong Together." (source)
People of Hong Kong, can I add you to my friends list on MySpace?
Like I mentioned earlier I am in the process of moving. So if things get a little slow around here you know why. My DSL service won't be back up until the weekend so I'm using dial up to surf the net. Damn! I forgot how slow this shit was.I feel a dramatic cunt episode coming on.
Anyway, Lauryn Hill gave a special performance for the Conde Nast Media Group to celebrate the New Starwood Prefererd Guest Card from American Express. There was a lot of raw emotion going on.
Use don't abuse (ie. adding me to your site's mailing list). And for the love of God please stop sending mp3 files of your music. I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
