A Dirt Angel sighting is finally upon us. Appreciate and cherish this moment for the rest of your life, why don't you? Boy, what I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall during that conversation.
PigPen and Lyfe Jennings look like two peas in a dirty ass pod. Lyfe's filth game may not be up to par with Jim's illustrious career but give him a little time. I'm sure he has plenty of pickle juice and coffee grounds in that chin strap of his.
Ashanti's mother Tina Douglas and little sister, Mathew Knowles, and Tiffany Evans were also in the building at the Giant Volume 4 show.
Here are a couple quotables from Clay Cane'srecent interviews with Miss Patti for HX and BlackVoices. Please be sure to check both articles out!
On the first gay person she met: "My niece, and I had no clue because she's a lipstick lesbian. I had no clue, and one day she just decided to tell me. She is very soft—see, this is where my ignorance comes in. I always thought that lesbians were like truck drivers, like hard women. Like all of them had to be that way or they weren't gay. But there are soft girls, middle kind of girls and hard girls. Usually, the hard women are after me! When I got my divorce, the women jumped on me like white on rice! I said, "Look, I ain't ever did fish, I don't intend to do fish so leave me alone." I said, "I'm looking for a man and you're not a man!"
Her secret to aging gracefully: "Get a beautiful man, look at him. If you can't do anything with him just look at him. It will keep you feeling beautiful. You can't look at no moose all day, all night and wake up looking happy! You look at somebody beautiful, you wake up with a smile on your face. Not that you're going to have sex or anything, it's just you need beauty in your life. You don't need nothing old and decrepit, nobody with maggots and worms -- you don't need this! Girls, look for somebody healthy, strong, beautiful, but somebody first with a heart of gold and who loves you for you. Believe in yourselves and that'll keep you healthy and young looking. No matter what people say about you, know that you're the baddest thing out there. Know it, claim it!"
Why she appeals to the gay community so much: I'm every gay man's mother—come and sit on mama's lap! It ain't no sugarmama stuff either—they just really connect. Maybe because I looked like a drag queen back in the day and I still can go there if I want. When I wore those outrageous hairstyles, I guess they said, "She's really out." I'm not a gay woman; I'm just a woman who loves people.
Mannie Fresh's sister, Angela Bryant, was shot and killed Wednesday night in her New Orleans home, according to local TV affiliate WWLTV. Police reportedly said the 42-year-old mother's two young children were present but not physically harmed.
Authorities said Bryant, whose body was discovered early Thursday morning, was murdered between 10 p.m. and midnight, according to WWLTV. Her black 1998 Lexus LS 400 reportedly went missing after the murder.
Bryant's husband, who had been out of town when his wife was killed, arrived at the house before noon and was distraught, according to the WWLTV report. The couple got married last month, and Bryant celebrated her birthday with family on Wednesday night, WWLTV said. Police reportedly did not elaborate on the conditions of the children, ages 2 and 7, but said they were safe and healthy. [source]
My prayers go out to Mannie Fresh and his family during these difficult times.
Pictured above are two of my personal heroes, Keyshia Cole's mother Frankie and artist/friend Amina. Frankie is right up there with the likes of Joe Simpson and Dina "White Oprah" Lohan on my list of favorite celeb parents. So please, have a heart.
As many of you probably are aware of by now Diamond [Gel] has left Crime Mob to pursue a solo career. OMG! Rumors reached a fever pictch on Tuesday when Crime Mob hit the red carpet at the Dirty Awards without Lil' Scrappy's boo.
Diamond is no longer in the group right now," Princess [Weave]told SOHH before the show. "She is working on a solo career but we still wish her well. She has a mix tape called 'B-word' Music. Go check her out on MySpace. It's still love but we had to keep the business going and keep money flowing."
Princess said there's no beef, but it's unfortunate that they couldn't work things out as a group.
"It's sad we couldn't carry on ... but it is what it is," Princess said. "You just gotta keep the ball rolling. Everybody got their own agenda."
Crime Mob just opened another budget for the group's upcoming third album and Princess' new mixtape is slated to drop in December. She just took new pictures for the cover.
"Y'all will enjoy it," she said. "It's no features, no skits, no intros, no outros, just me," [source]
Can we have a moment of silence for "Stilletto Pumps" please?
The Internet is on fire with rumors surrounding R. Kelly and the daughter of Regina Daniels, the singer's longtime publicist who suddenly and mysteriously quit her post saying only that a line had been crossed.
Talk around the black blogosphere Wednesday suggests that Daniels abruptly left the job because Kelly slept with her (step) daughter, who is said to be 19-years-old. A photo of Kelly embracing the girl surfaced yesterday.
When contacted by EUR's Lee Bailey, Regina Daniels refused to comment on the photo, or further explain her reasons for leaving the position.
“Unless you’re calling to see how I’m doing, I’m still not going to comment on R. Kelly. I’ve said all I have to say,” Daniels told Bailey. She also said that if her husband, veteran music retailer George Daniels, wants to comment, Bailey can talk to him.
Bailey called George Daniels, who also said "no comment," but clarified: "Bottom line is [R. Kelly] crossed a certain line with me and my wife that you shouldn't cross. I respect his talent. You can't deny he's a talented person. But beyond that, everything else is just gone."
Daniels also affirmed that Kelly "never put his hand on Regina, or nothing like that." When asked if he is aware of Wednesday's explosion of Internet rumors about their daughter, he said, "I'm aware of that, too. No comment." [source]
It's been a second since the undertaker has come to make a visit but at last we meet again. I had to do a double take at my television screen on Wednesday night when I saw Keyshia Cole on 106 & Park dressed like a pimp version of Barnie Rubble.KeyLoLo's stylist must be taking the week off to observe the Fuck Effort holiday because there cannot be another explanation for this shit.
If you covered yourself in rubber cement and rolled around in the lions den at the zoo this would be the end result. You know Neffe'nem is to blame for this tragedy. I can hear her ass now talking about "yeah girl that's sharp right there!"
Blah blah blah . . . another rapper gets busted with weed. Big fuckin' deal right?
Williams, 38, his wife Brittany, 18, and his brother, Ronald Williams, 43, were each charged with possession of more than 1/2 ounce of marijuana as were 13 others, several of whom are also affiliated with the rap industry and Cash Money Records, which was founded by Bryan and Ronald Williams.
18 year old wife?! Come again? How does Lil' Wayne feel about this? I need answers. At any rate I blame R. Kelly. Remember when he and Baby were suppose to link up for The Best of Both Worlds Part II? Baby probably snatched up one of Robert's kittens and kept it moving.
Tenn-a-key is having the best week ever! Need I remind you what went down on Sunday?
Aunt Viv has been keeping a low profile since her DUI arrest earlier this year. The actress is currently guest-starring in HBO's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and on the road acting in a stage played titled 'Whatever She Wants.' Just as long as she isn't hitting the booze and driving I'm satisfied.
Her movie with Jessica Simpson and Jill Marie Jones is scheduled to be released next year. You can check out the trailer under the cut.
This video clip of gospel group Immeasurable performing at a Baltimore church shot by Jawn Murray has been making its rounds around the net for a couple of days now and I thought I would pass it on to you guys.
Hey, if God wants Mary J. Blige to be the "hottest thing on the block" and "bling" then I don't think he will mind the fur coats. Now excuse me while I go in my bathroom and attempt to swagger jack their throwback ponytails.
Word to Alexyss K. Tylor, absent dick'll make you cancel your tour!
Amy Crackhouse house has canceled all concerts and public appearances for the rest of the year on doctor's orders. Damn I am going to miss laughing at that beautiful bean footage on YouTube.
"The rigors involved in touring and the intense emotional strain that Amy has been under in recent weeks have taken their toll," said Winehouse representative Tracey Miller.
"I can't give it my all onstage without my Blake," Winehouse said in a statement provided by Miller. "I'm so sorry but I don't want to do the shows halfheartedly; I love singing. My husband is everything to me and without him, it's just not the same."
Amy's husband Blake Fielder-Civil has been ordered held in custody in London earlier this month on charges stemming from a case in which he is accused of assaulting a barman in June.
Life just ain't the same without a get high partner there to share the good times with.
I don't particular care for KeyLoLo's buffonery at times but I'll me damned if that detours me from tuning into her reality show every week! Last night was the motherload of drama so far this season. It was like a week's worth of Maury rolled up into one show, which means plenty of paternity, relationship, and family drama. The best part about the show is I don't think that they are acting out for the cameras, you know, 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' style. God bless 'em.
Keyshia Cole, Mario, and Lupe Fiasco stopped through TRL yesterday for Spankin' New Lyrics Week.
Multiple sources tell People magazine that welcomed a baby boy on Monday night. While reps for Usher and Foster were not immediately available for comment, one source says Usher was with his wife and new child Tuesday at an Atlanta hospital, and the family is expected to head home on Wednesday.
I am going to quit while I am ahead and say nothing more then congratulations.
An inside source tells Sandra Rose that Chris Brown has been motorboating his manager. I heard about this around the same time rumors circulated that a 30 something year old woman was pregnant by this young crooner. Here's the skinny:
The young girls who have followed Chris Brown's career since the beginning will not be happy with this news.
Apparently, rumors are flying about Chris Brown and his manager. The drama behind the scenes has become so disruptive that it threatens the start of the tour. My source tells me exclusively that Chris Brown has been intimate with his manger since she met him at the tender age of 16! And furthermore, he is "madly in love with her."
For those who are not familiar with her, Chris Brown's manager was the Senior Vice President of A&R at Def Jam when she met the young singer and attempted to sign him. She was also instrumental in signing Ne-Yo to Def Jam.
When Def Jam merged with Roc-A-Fella Records, she was forced to resign. According to Chris, who was by then smitten with the older woman, "When that happened, I asked her to be my manager, and she was happy to. She took me to Warner Brothers and Jive to look for other deals, and I ended up picking Jive at the end of the day."
This explains why Chris has never been known to have a girlfriend. Apparently, Chris' mom Joyce recently became aware of the situation and is not at all happy. "That's where the drama comes in," says my source. They say a mother always knows - but the happy couple managed to keep their relationship under wraps for 2 years.
Three pissed drag queens raised hell at a McDonalds in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday night. Danny Mitchell, Lynn Gillespie and Dacorian Greer were charged with aggravated assault after an argument at the drive-thru window with an employee turned super bad.
A restaurant employee says he was working in the drive-thru window and there was an argument there. He says when he ignored them men tapping on the window, they came inside and started a fight.
One of the men is accused of hitting the manager in the head with a tire iron. Police say the manager swung back, and the men kicked off their stiletto boots, pulled off earrings and jackets in preparation for a fight.
The manager was taken to the hospital after being hit with a "wet floor" sign. Another employee was treated for scratches.
Investigators say before the men drove off, they smashed the drive-thru window. [source]
Since the customer is always right I blame the manager. He should have known better to ignore a car full of hungry tang masters. They were probably hungry from all that Jsetting and what not. KNOCK THAT LIL' BITCH DOWN!
So this is what the life after "Party Like A Rockstar" looks like, ay gang? Hope that ringtone paper is sufficient.
Slap on your best tall black tee and crank that roadrunner, the 3rd Annual Dirty Awards are here. The awards highlight all types of Southern fuckery ranging from artist of the year to the most bootlegged CD.
Damn it feels good to see people up on it. [sarcasm sold separately]
After reading the caption that accompanied this flick I can understand why Chubb Rock over there is giving Chaka the look of deceit.
Chaka Khan and kids of the Chaka Khan Foundation learn about a healthy life-style in regards to diet, the concept of fine dining, food pairings, food presentation and basic culinary techniques at the Chaka Khan Foundation Event at Crustacean Beverly Hills on November 25, 2007 in Beverly Hills, California.
Little man's side-eye is killing me softly. She must have snatched the last crumpet off his plate. Maybe next time.
Popie has been accused of “dirty” tactics in trying to prevent Keifer Bonvillain from releasing a tell-all book on the business dealings of her company, Harpo Productions. Bonvillian was arrested on charged with extortion last year after attempting to sell recordings of a Harpo employee revealing Winfrey’s business affairs. The charge was thrown out of court. He said, “An office manager at Harpo broke his silence and his confidentiality agreement when he spoke freely about Oprah Winfrey’s private life and business affairs.”
Bonvillian now claims someone tried to rob him of the tapes after he announced he was using them to write a tell-all book about Winfrey’s business dealings. He claims Winfrey was responsible for the robbery as she wanted to keep her practices private.
The 37-year-old, who calls himself a “civil-rights activist,” has launched a Web site to try and get supporters for the publishing of his book, “Ruthless.”
I must admit that I have been sleeping on Baby's dramtic cunt ways for far too many years. I peeped his game back in '02 but didn't think much of it. I wasn't sure if it was bad acting or zest but I know better now. What can I say, you live and you learn.
But yeah, Rick Ross and Fat Joe's tittayballs totally saved this video. Be nice kids.
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.
