Filmmaker Michael Moore wrote a long detailed article explaining his decision to vote for Sen. Barack Obama’s ‘decency’ over Hillary Clinton’s ‘mud slinging’.

Moore also mentioned the day president Bill Clinton invited the Rev. Jeremiah Wright to a White House Function to provide “spiritual guidance” after Clinton was caught with his pants down and Monica Lewinsky’s ass up in the Oval office.

Moore wrote that Mrs. Clinton throws Rev. Wright in Obama’s face “as part of her mission to keep stoking the fears of White America.”

I wish I could post the entire article but it’s just too long. So I posted the part that pertains to the above. You can read the full text here.

    “Finally, I want to say a word about the basic decency I have seen in Mr. Obama. Mrs. Clinton continues to throw the Rev. Wright up in his face as part of her mission to keep stoking the fears of White America. Every time she does this I shout at the TV, “Say it, Obama! Say that when she and her husband were having marital difficulties regarding Monica Lewinsky, who did she and Bill bring to the White House for ‘spiritual counseling?’ THE REVEREND JEREMIAH WRIGHT!

Madonna‘s daughter Lourdes took a leisurely stroll in NY with her daddy Carlos Leon today. It’s good to see her dad is in her life. Lourdes is such a cutie. Too bad mommy gave in to pressure and shaved Lourdes’ unibrow. There’s nothing wrong with a little hair on a woman’s face.

As most of you know, singer Estelle is from my country, Great Britain. It pains me that Estelle won’t be accepted in America based on her amazing skills – because she doesn’t fit the Industry standard of beauty.

This is the reason why America is not considered the standard of Entertainment anywhere in the world.

Anyway, Estelle came through Atlanta last week on a promotional tour and my photographer Freddy O was with her every step of the way. Estelle’s style is fresh and maybe a little too unique for these shores.

Latin heartthrob Enrique Iglesias told Showbiz Spy he hates that he told an interviewer that he had a small wee wee 6 years ago. He said as a result of his kidding, people took him seriously and for a while he was known as the “dude with the small one.”

But Enrique says he changed all that by becoming something of an exhibitionist. “When people find out it’s not the case they are pleasantly surprised,” says Enrique. Hmmmm… did he say “people” as opposed to saying “women”? (Source)

A friend sent me this photo of Mario and Evan Ross at the Los Angeles Lakers vs Denver Nuggets Game on Sunday in LA. They certainly look like they’re enjoying the game, don’t they? Other than the fact that syrup flows thick in Hollywood, I can’t call it. LOL.

    You can try me fu*ker, but when I squeeze it hurts, fine
    We’ll lose two lives, yours and mines
    Gimme any amount of time, don’t let Ms. Carter grieve
    At the funeral parlor drippin’ tears on my sleeve
    Told the judge didn’t budge, it was him or me
    And I ain’t trying to be hard, but I’m guilty as charged
    Put my mercy on this court and my faith in God
    And pray hard none of my nephews wanna be stars.

When Jay Z wrote his hit “Lucky Me”, he never envisioned one of his beloved nephews would follow him into the rap game. Kids never grow up to do what you expect them to. That’s because they’re individuals forging their own paths through life. But I bet Jay Z wished his nephew Young Mel chose a different path.

Thanks to a loyal reader for this photo of Teyana Taylor and Ramel “Young Mel” Carter at the Rap-Up Magazine 3rd Anniversary Celebration and Release of “Rap-Up: The Ultimate Guide to Hip-Hop and R&B at the Adidas Originals Soho Store in NYC on April 17, 2008.

Thank God Rocsi wasn’t the victim in that Michael Misick rape scandal going on over in Turks and Caicos. I hear the Parliament over there is trying to run Misick and his wife Lisa Raye off the island. I hear they never liked her anyway.

Alicia Keys did her thing on the Today Show this morning. I hear she’s still miffed at Blender magazine for basically repeating exactly what she said. Note to clueless stars: stop doing interviews if you don’t want your fans to know how dumb you truly are.

If you thought Alicia’s tan was natural, think again. It comes from a can.

In a letter to his readers posted on his website, playwright/filmmaker/director Tyler Perry told fans that a woman has been stalking him. “I’m trying to be careful how I say this without inciting this person, but I have a stalker,” wrote Perry. He was so afraid for his life that he was forced to hire extra security. “I hate to have big guys following me around,” he said.

Perry said although he has never met the woman, she’s shown up at his door several times, sends him “hundreds of emails a day”, and has already planned their wedding complete with rings and everything.

I’m not surprised by this because certain people have the tendency to over exaggerate things a bit. I for one don’t believe his stalker is a female. I’m going to need Mr. Perry to go ahead and kick open that closet door since its been hanging off its hinges for awhile now anyway.

Supposedly Atlantic Records ordered British phenomenon Estelle to have cosmetic surgery on her teeth to help break her in American because Americans are so image obsessed. It appears the pressure got to Estelle because when she made an appearance in Atlanta yesterday, she wore orthodontic braces on her teeth.

The record labels executives also got on her about her tomboyish haircut:

According to The Sun, the record label bosses also want her to ditch the boyish haircut and want to give her a complete image overhaul.

A source told the newspaper: “The American executives are adamant she makes a lot of significant changes. They want rid of her tomboy hair and want her to get her teeth fixed. (Source)

Estelle’s hit song “American Boy” ft. Pharrell Williams was #1 in the UK for three weeks.

HE SO NASTY: Ray J‘s BFF Whitney Houston was his special guest last night at AG Entertainment’s Hot On the Runway Fashion Show at the Compound. They say Ray J groped his package onstage to the delight of a few of the men in the audience (What? This IS Atlanta). My spy says neither Whitney nor the ladies in attendance looked impressed.


I can’t tell if this is Ashanti or not. I swear she always looks like a blow up doll.


The effervescent Rashan Ali (Hot 107.9) and Young Jeezy were in the house. I think I’ll call Jeezy’s peoples and let them know I’m ready for my dinner date with Jeezy. I need to find out who he’s kicking it with now that Keyshia Cole has moved on with her life.


Rapper Rocko ripped the runway last night. His baby mama Monica was at the studio putting the finishing touches on her upcoming CD.


Singer Mario performed in 2 spots last night: at Justin’s for the R&B Live show, and at the Fashion Show at Compound.


I diidn’t know Jazze Pha had his own YouTube cooking show? By the way, that’s rapper Vawn on the right. He’s So So Def’s new artist.


The College Hill kids. I guess. I don’t watch the show.


Come on, Whitney! Just ONE picture, damn!
