Political analysts say in order for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to seal the democratic party nomination she needs to win two state primaries today: Ohio and Texas. Voters in Rhode Island and Vermont also go to the polls today but all eyes are on the two big states.

While Clinton vows to stay in the race if she loses both states, Sen. Barack Obama's camp say she can't catch up to his delegate count. Some experts believe Clinton will drop out of the race if she loses, others say it is highly unlikely she will lose both Texas and Ohio primaries.

My prediction: Clinton will win both Texas and Ohio primaries today. But both candidates will go down to the wire with Obama winning the democratic nomination. Unfortunately, Obama will lose the presidency to Republican John McCain.

Box office critics predicted a big weekend for New Line Cinemas' movie "Semi Pro" starring Will Ferrell and Andre "3000" Benjamin. But the basketball comedy took in only $5.7 million on Friday night, leaving critics scratching their heads.

The stunning failure at the box office is calling into question the career of Ferrell who had back-to-back hits with "Talladega Nights" and "Blades of Glory."

Dre 3000, in the meantime, has never had a hit movie. Maybe it's time for him to go back into the studio full time and leaving the acting to real actors.

Picture this: you and your new woman (or man, after all, this is Atlanta) are planning a cozy evening together. You plan to cook dinner with wine served chilled. You just met her (or him) so you are anxious to impress with your culinary skills and your expert taste in wine.

But just as the two of you sit down to eat, she points to the wine and says, "honey, does this bottle say Little Jonathan Winery?" You answer, "yeeeeaaahhhhhhh!" 5 minutes later, you're all alone in your apartment sipping your chilled Lil Jon Merlot straight from the bottle.

Lil Jon officially launches his new wine collection with a Merlot, chardonnay and Cabernet that is already out in select California stores. Major roll out is expected in the next couple of weeks. (Source)

With 62% of the building sales chart already in, Janet Jackson and Erykah Badu are in a dead heat for the #1 spot. Janet's 10th studio album Discipline currently sits at #1 with 110,000 units sold. While Erykah's Amerykah is close behind with 88,000 units sold.

Anyone who follows these charts knows that the holder of second place can easily blow by number 1 at the last minute. This race will be interesting to watch as it comes down to the wire!

We here at Sandrarose.com are happy to see the industry finally giving recognition and respect to our talented Nubian sistahs. British singer Estelle was in the states last week promoting her new single "American Boy" featuring Kanye West. This new emphasis on non-conventional artists signals a new direction for the music industry which is in the midst of its worst sales slump in history. Obviously something is broken and needs fixing.

Poor Jay Z is not aging well as this picture illustrates. Jay, real name Shawn Carter, is currently in the midst of a national tour with Mary J. Blige where they perform to sold out houses every night. The rigors of being on the road at age 40 clearly shows on his face.

Not all of us are blessed enough to be able to leave the house without makeup on. Kelly Rowland proves that she can skip sessions with her makeup artist anytime she wants to. Her face is positively glowing!

The paparazzi snapped Kelly as she arrived at Reagan National Airport in Washington DC to promote the re-release of her album "Ms. Kelly."

We're not saying we're Rihanna experts here on Sandrarose.com. But we do detect something different about our girl Rihanna's mouth piece. Could she be getting regular botox injections like her friend Simon Cowell and half of Hollywood?
