I'm Just Saying . . .

There is only one Nala West. And Natalie, it ain't you. Peep the description of 'Reasonable Excuse' under the cut.

"Everybody's Got A Reason..something to push them over the edge..an excuse to be bad..I've had a lot of bad things happen in my life..my reasons are looking for me..and I'm still running..."

High heels, corsets and sheer decadence. Reasonable Excuse is a dramatic, sassy film about a 20 something PR executive called Laila. A dark heroine, who's trying to move on from an incident in L.A but somehow gets caught up in the mind games of individuals around her with spine-chilling consequences that link her to the haunting incidents of her past

Starring Natalie Stewart (Grammy Award Winning Floetry), Shola Ama (Brit Award Winner), Nolan Weekes, Tony Streeter and Kwaku. Guest Featuring Sabrina (Mis-Teeq), Lee Henry (Mobo Award Winner) and introducing newcomers Sadie, Mercedes, Dwayne Nosworthy and Kaya Bousquet.

Reasonable excuse is a pop thriller, with a risqu.. script, chic direction and a chilling storyline. A sexy, modern, spin on the film noir genre.


Some Things Never Change

Fire is hot, water is wet, and Wendy Williams looks like this. What else is new? Hate it or love it. At this point it would be a waste of my time to think of something snarky to say about ol' girl so I won't. Luckily you guys aren't as forgiving, heh. Kevin still motorboats this on the regular though!

Question of the Day

Word on the curb is that Donkey and Tracey Edmonds exchanged I do's over the weekend in Tahiti. Um, tropical flavored! No word yet if Johnnie acked [yes, acked] up at the ceremony or not. You know we have to give these two the C+D wedding registry treatment. What would you buy the newlyweds and why?

Start With Stray Shots And Then Pop Bottles

I mean really, Papa Joe. Where's Katie?

Jay-Z summoned the spirits of Beyaki's creole ancesters to get the 40/40 up to building code in time for its grand opening in Las Vegas over the weekend. Tons of celebs [and randoms] came out to holla at Hov.

Killin' you hoes, effortlessly.

Bobby Digital [1]

The Rundown has exclusive flicks of The King of Rocks & Blunts and others at Tyrese's 29th birthday celebration at The Garden of Eden nightclub in Hollywood. It's good to see that Bobbay actually took time to mosturize his situation before stepping out of the house. I just hope he had a designated driver to take his ass home. Mischa Barton's urine ain't got shit on his! I bet during some point of the night he jumped on stage and did his own rendention of "Signs of Makin' Love." What a zodiac freak.

[1] I fux with you Rza. Always have, always will.


Seriously, What In The Blue Hell?

I have no words for this fuckery. My soul is caving in as we speak. Please say something nice.


Double Up

Us Weekly named D'Lila and Jesse Combs to their babies of the year list. [click here to check out all the babies] Now I don't talk about females until they start menstruating [rule of thumb!] so I'm going to keep my lips sealed. Besides, they're too adorable. Leopard freakum smocks and all.

They're trying to stand up and discover everything," father Sean "Diddy" Combs tells Us of his 1-year-old twins with ex Kim Porter. "All it takes is one look from them and my heart melts."

Are You Really Surprised At All?

A rapper with a secret love child?! GTFOH!

Sez Def Sounds:

It looks like Snoop Dogg's reality show, Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood, is about to get a new cast member.

The show which brings fans into Snoop's everyday life with wife Shante, their two sons 13-year-old Corde and 10-year-old Cordell, and their 8-year-old daughter Cori, might feature another family member--Snoop's illegitimate son, 9-year-old Julian Corrie Brodus.

According to Star Magazine, Julian reveals he hasn't seen his father for five years and now he wants to play a big part in Snoop's life, and appear on his TV show.

"I don't want to be an actor, I want to be a baseball player. But I want to be on the show to get to know my family." Said the 9-year-old.

Reports say Snoop paid regular visits as well as child support until 2003, which caused Julians mother, Laurie Holmond, to take him [Snoop] to court to prove he was the biological father.

"I asked him to start seeing Julian again. He sounded sincere but has yet to come by... Calvin needs to acknowledge him." Said the mother


Usher To Work With LaMike's Dad On New Track, Talks Fatherhood

Usher revealed to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he has a new song in the works featuring T-Pain and Michael Jackson. I can't wait to hear how that shit sounds.

Via Eurweb

It’s been created, but it’s not recorded," Usher explained to the newspaper. "And as long as Michael is open to it, hey, anything goes.”

The track would be featured on Usher's upcoming album, which he says will be out early next year.

“I’ve been diligently working on creating a masterpiece," he said of the project. "It’s going to be out first or maybe the second quarter. I see the second quarter of next year. And there will be a video and single out at the top of the year. … I think [Atlanta producer] Polow Da Don is going to have the first one. I think that’s going to be the single 'Love In The Club.'”

Check out what Usher has to say about fatherhood after the jump.

Meanwhile, the home front has changed drastically for the Broadway performer, who is spending his first holiday season as both a husband and father.

“I’m really like super dad. Really. I really cook for the family," he said. "Now I basically do chicken and broccoli and steamed vegetables, because I’m on this diet. But believe me, I can fry some chicken too … I really clean up. I walk the dog, myself. I burp the baby. I change the diapers. I trim the tree. I’m about to get the things for the tree after this because it’s bare. … I’m super dad. And it’s only begun.”

The artist says he and wife Tameka are still figuring out how to go about releasing the first baby picture of little Usher V. In the meantime, Usher IV says he'll continue to snap his own photos of the baby.

“I’ve become an instant photographer, developing them and everything,” he says.

Tameka runs a tight ship! Got that negroid in panties and all. Ha, I'm just kidding around but its good that he is playing an active role in little Shrek's life. But then again, that what he is supposed to be doing anyway.

Wild Turkey

Speaking of supermaning hoes, Trey Songz did Souljah Boy [and Akon] proud during a recent club appearance. I'm just upset that the bourbon chicken recipe that is tatted on his chest wasn't visible.

Casket Toss // Omarion + Solange

I'm soooo rocking this look to The Dealer's New Years Eve party. I just love Omarion and Solange. Wait til I get my money right, I am going to incorporate tons of scarves and yaki wild lace front wigs in my wardrobe.

Who swagged it out better?

Who unearthered this ancient beautiful bean footage of Beyaki as a baby? Kidding. You gotta love the side-eye action.


Quick Quotes

"Everybody says I'm being a drama queen and I'm a great actress," Hynie said, alternately sobbing and joking during a recent telephone interview. "All I did was cry and fall to my knees and faint a couple of times. Isn't that how a wife is supposed to act at a funeral when she loses the man she loves?"

Oh Word?

You ain't got to lie Raz B, you ain't got to lie. I still believe you.



Deelishis AND Carl Thomas?!

This is like Christmas all over again! Take two and get at me in the morning.

Raz B's Truth About Chris Stokes

In two new video clips ex-B2K member Raz B airs out cousin/former manager Chris Stokes, alleging everything from molestation to shiesty business and personal practices. Raz's brother Ricky [who looks like he is getting his weed situation together] also claims that he was forced to take showers with "the other boys." Heavy, heavy.

I have been saying that something in the milk wasn't clean about Chris but nooooo . . .

Ah well, I will say that I love the sepia tone of the vids. Somebody please give this man his own reality show on LOGO.


The Grinches Who Stole Dick

Please pray for your cousins. They need it.

Authorities have charged two women and a man with a weekend attack on three North Carolina football players, which police said was motivated by robbery and included the sexual assault of at least two players.

Police said the players were attacked early Sunday at their off-campus apartment. All three were bound with tape, and one of those charged threatened the players with a knife. None of the players required medical attention, police said.

Authorities charged Monique Jenice Taylor, 28, Tnika Monta Washington, 29, and Michael Troy Lewis, 32, with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of conspiracy to commit a felony and one count of resisting arrest.

Taylor and Washington also are charged with one count of first-degree sexual offense. Lewis is also charged with robbery, possession of stolen goods and assault on government officials.

Glenn Gerding, an attorney for Taylor, said he didn't want to discuss details of the case outside of court.

"I'm sure once everything comes out in court, we'll be able to establish her innocence," Gerding told The Associated Press.

Prosecutors said the players and the accused went to the victims' apartment after meeting at a downtown bar. [continue]

That's Just My Baby Daddy

The latest round of rumors to emerge from Speargate is that she had a romatic relationship with Lil' . . . excuse me, Romeo, during the same time she was dating Casey Aldridge. This would make for one hell of a paternity test show on Maury, no?

Grain of salt, ladies and gents. As much as I would want this piece of gossip to be true I doubt that it is. You know how people get when a juicy story drops.

Anyway, with all of this teen pregnancy talk Nickelodeon is considering airing a special for its young viewers that would focus on issues of sex and love, according to network spokesperson.

Where for art thou Linda Ellerbee?

No Conflict Free European Yaki For Remy

A judge has denied a request by Remy Ma, accused of shooting an acquaintance in July over missing money, to travel to Europe for a five-country concert tour.

Ivan Fisher, lawyer for the 26-year-old rapper, told the judge his client, whose real name is Remy Smith, needs the tour to earn money. Since her arrest, Fisher said, Smith has been unable to get sufficient U.S. bookings, and a proposed recording contract has been put on hold.

Fisher told the judge the tour, which was to begin in Paris on Dec. 31, would net Smith up to $40,000, "which she very much needs."

Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller said Thursday she wouldn't allow Smith to leave the U.S. because of the serious charges facing her. [source]

That's the breaks, that's the breaks! Looks like Remy may need to check out Monster.com


What About Richard?!

Venus Williams was named one of2007's best dressed celebs by Vogue magazine. I'm not saying I disagree but the simple fact that Papa Richard and his sexii legs were not mentioned in the article did sorta piss me off.

You're overcooking my grits, Andre Leon Talley.

Leave The Children At Home

Hooray, Chester's Double Up Tour breezed through Oakland last Saturday. Can somebody explain to me what that root box mardi gras doll hanging around neck is all about? I vote no.

In related news, R. Kelly avoided arrest Thursday by showing up in court, but the judge presiding over his child pornography case said he'll consider revoking the singer's bond despite his excuse: that police made him late. This momofucka right here. Always blaming somebody else for his fuck ups.

Harpo, Who This Woman?

I received the above image along with a press release last week but I didn't pay it much mind until this morning. Something in the milk ain't clean.

(December 13, 2007 – New York, NY) International megastar Janet Jackson, who has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and is the newest signing to the Island Def Jam Music Group, has completed her first new single for the label with hitmaking producer Rodney Jerkins. “Feedback” will impact across-the-board at all radio formats on January 7th.

DISCIPLINE, Janet Jackson’s new album – and the 10th studio album of her career – is scheduled to arrive in stores on February 26th. In addition to Rodney Jerkins, the new album brings together an A-list of guest producers, including Jermaine Dupri, Ne-Yo, Stargate, Tricky Stewart, and The-Dream. DISCIPLINE was executive produced by Antonio “L.A.” Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group.

And The Nominees Are . . .

Slickback Ivanhoe appeared with actress Jeanne Tripplehorn to announce the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles earlier this morning. I know this isn't really newsworthy but just check out the raw emotion emanating from that boy's eyes. I feel like I am watching the scene from Crash when he tells Ludacris' character "You embarrass me. You embarrass yourself." all over again. End scene.

Just . . . Leave

Snap for the kids! Well will you just take a look at who is invading Ugly Betty. I've said enough about these two all week long so I won't waste any more of my energy. Teenyboppers enjoy.

[Thanks Tootie Bad Azz, ha!]

Tatted Up

Nick Cannon @ his 'Young Hollywood Club' Christmas party

At first glance I thought that Nick Cannon completely lost his mind but a closer look quickly revealed that his new body ink isn't the real deal, or at least I think. I'm assuming he is inked up for a project that's in the works and decided to show us all the new art work. I am going to die laughing if some director has him acting like Justin Timberlake's character in Alpha Dog.

But then again who knows, he may just be able to pull it off. Never understimate a cheese puff my friend.

No Trips To The Baby Gap Just Yet

There is some serious side-eye going on here.

Fantasia and Young Dro are not expecting a little bundle of joy. There goes Clifford's dreams of watching Lil' Drasia for the weekend.

"Fantasia is not pregnant and the Internet rumors are entirely untrue," Barrino's rep confirms to Us.

The New York Post also said that "an upcoming visit from the stork might explain the star's numerous absences from the Broadway smash The Color Purple."

But the show's rep tells Us:

"It is true that she has missed some performances because she has gotten sick from time to time over the nine months, but doing eight shows a week is a lot so she missed a few." [source]


You Sent It! // Ne-Yo At His Finest


You gotta see this pic. Am I nuts... doesnt it look like this dudes about to gobble that mic up whole?

For this shit I have absolutely, positively no words.

In an effort to "reach those suburban white kids like Kanye did," rapper Lil Wayne has announced that he will be working with shiny-faced pretty boy Zac Efron on an upcoming album titled High School Musical 2: Non-Stop Dance Party. More importantly, Efron has also used the opportunity to pretend he's black enough to sling around the n-word.

According to a reporter from the OC Weekly, the unlikely tandem had the following interaction at Wayne's brand-new Miami mansion (where, the piece also informs us, a Juicy Fruit-dispensing bathroom attendant is on the premises full-time):

"'What's up, my nigga?' Efron says, giving Wayne a pound, a hug, and then, to my astonishment, a full-on kiss, reminiscent of the one Wayne famously gave his surrogate father Baby last year."

The hello kiss in question led many to believe that Wayne, who also has a faux-bronze nude statue of himself at the house, is a homosexual. Luckily, Efron has never been the subject of similar rumors! [source via Dlisted]

You know Baby was watching from the top of the stairs [Little Richard style] tweaking his nipples.

[Thanks Jack Potts]

EDIT: Turns out this shit was all a joke. Did you laugh? Well?


Question of the Day

So, Anna Mae Bullock knows what time it is?

Finally some good news! The New York Post reports that a new musical about the life of Tina Turner is currently aiming for a London debut.

. . . But judging from the script she's written for an autobiographical musical, it's clear Tina still hates Ike.

"Simply the Best" portrays Ike Turner as a gun-wielding, cocaine-sniffing, wife-beating monster whose signature line is: "That bitch will taste my wrath like it's her own saliva!"

Was that quote necessary? Not really, but I couldn't help myself. But I digress.

[Thanks Reen]
