I'm not going to tell ya'll that I thought this was Lil' Mama at first. Nope, I am just going to keep that to myself. Strangé went on an afternoon stroll with a pal in Soho earlier this week. Grace used to the scare the hell out of me when I was a child but you can't help but love her. I wish all models were as wonky as she is.

And what about the man himself? Just because he hasn't had a record out in ages, some think he fell off, but he's been busier than you think.
"And we've got Al B. working on the new album, which is called 'Honey I'm Home.' It's been quite a while, but its coming. Everybody I run in to, from Anthony Anderson to Michael Jackson [Uh huh. - - Fresh], are asking me 'When're you going to come with the new album. I really love it and appreciate it. It's about time now. I've lost all the weight and it's time to do it."
He lost the weight? Some of his female fans may be a little upset at that. Some liked the teddy bear look, but to each her own. He's currently a popular radio show host from 9 am to 12 pm on LA radio station Hot 92.3. It's a job Al B. Sure says he enjoys greatly. By the way, radio and CDs aren't the only mediums he's dabbling in these days.
"Definitely, Hot 92.3 has been a blessing to me. I talk to (millions) of people everyday. I'm definitely keeping the radio gig. But I'm also in a new straight to DVD film with Blair Underwood. It's called 'The Hit' and it's on CodeBlack/Universal. It also stars DeRay Davis and James Russo from 'The Godfather.' It's a nice little joint." (source)
...Armed with a video camera and an imagination, RuPaul’s ultimate goal in creating Starrbooty was to spoof the blacksploitation films of the 1970s like "Cleopatra Jones," "Foxy Brown" and the television show "Get Christie Love."
Once he completed the film and rather low-budget editing process Starrbooty was born.
Fast forward 20 years to the present and you just might catch a revamped version of the eccentric character on the big screen.

In the article, which will post on the magazine's Web site Nov. 15, McMillan discusses never-before-mentioned details of her marriage. Among other things, she accuses Plummer of stealing money from her private bank account.
Explaining her decision to reveal more details to the magazine, McMillan writes in a statement:
"I am not doing this to literally demonize Jonathan Plummer, but he is an evil person to have done the things he has taken pains to achieve.
"I loved him for years and did everything I could to help him evolve. The reason I told UNEQ Magazine so many of these previously undisclosed details is because he needs to be exposed to the community he is also pimping. He forgets that gay men have sisters and mothers. And it is because he doesn't care, just like he doesn't care if he ever goes back to Jamaica.
"It is the main reason he went on television to announce his homosexuality. He wanted the people in Jamaica to be embarrassed and to hate him so that in the event that our marriage were annulled - his goal was to use the self-generated hatred sure to come from Jamaica so that he would qualify for asylum and be able to stay in this country if his citizenship were revoked or in jeopardy. This is how slick he is. This was the main reason he and his attorney went on 'Good Morning America' and leaked my so-called homophobic insults to the media and included them in court documents.
"But the public had no idea of this goal because the focus was on 'Terry the Homophobic Witch' and not his theft, betrayal or deception. What was it that he gave me that would make any man think that I should pay him spousal support? A grown, healthy, gay man who was all of 31 years old? I did not rent a husband. He tried to paint me as Mommie Dearest and apparently some people bought it because he did to the gay community what he had been so successfully doing to me for years and that was to play the sympathy 'I'm-the-victim' card. And he is certainly a very high-profile victim who has taken every opportunity he could to take advantage of his so-called victimization.
"What I would really like UNEQ Magazine and members of the gay community to be very cognizant of is what is it that he has done since he came out of the closet that might benefit other gay men (and women) who are afraid to come out? What kind of platform has he chosen to draw positive attention to this problem? In every interview he's done, not once does he mention anything he's doing to help other oppressed gay men and women. Someone should ask him about this instead of always focusing on me. I've done more and shown more support for the gay community over the years than Jonathan will ever do.
"What is it he's doing besides getting a tell-all book published to draw attention to himself with the hopes of making money and once again all by pimping my fame? What has he done? Nothing. The gay men and women who are still suffering in Jamaica have not benefited one iota because of him. Quite the contrary. He gives gay men a bad rep as far as I can see. But he thought everybody was going to love him unconditionally. And look at what a spectacle he is making of himself and a mockery of his sexuality, all for his own personal gain. He could care less about men still in the closet." (source)

"Beauty is not just a white girl. It's so many different flavors and shades," the 37-year-old rapper-actress tells People magazine in its latest issue. "It's good for regular girls because the meter (for beauty) has been a slim white girl."
"(In Hollywood) we've definitely gotten better with body type," she says. "It used to be just me! Now with Jennifer Hudson's success and America Ferrera, I got some successors to take the reins on this whole bodylicious thing."
Latifah describes herself as being voluptuous — "definitely curvaceous."
"I think I'm normal compared to the statistics," she says. "This is a big country nowadays."
The star of "Chicago" and other films says she had elective breast-reduction surgery in 2003 to alleviate years of back and shoulder pain.
"I didn't want to get it. But I had lost 25 pounds and my breasts didnt go anywhere! I was still carrying that load," she tells the magazine.
However, "I didn't quite want them to be this small," she laughs.
Before surgery, Latifah says she was "an E or an F cup. I was pretty big. Now Im like a DD. I wanted to be a triple. They took one D too many! So that was hard to deal with. ... I missed my old look."
Latifah says she isn't interested in more surgery.
"There are people who love (plastic surgery) and want to cut and chop anything. I'm like, `Y'all are crazy!'" (source)
