According to, Rihanna loves her sexy Glow in the Dark Tour costumes so much she can’t resist taking them home. She says, “I like to push the envelope sometimes. It depends on the mood and the occasion.

“It’s always fun to take some home. Sometimes I get to do that.”.

A surprise witness from Atlanta is expected to testify for the defense at the R. Kelly trial today. The witness arrived in Chicago yesterday afternoon and was hustled away by defense attorneys. The man is expected to dispute a woman’s claims that she engaged in a threesome with Kelly and the young girl at the center of child molestation charges against Kelly.

The girl who was 13 when prosecutors claim she appeared in a video engaging in sex acts with Kelly, has maintained that she is not the girl in the video. But several witnesses have come forward to identify the girl and Kelly as the subjects in the video.

the surprise witness is said to be the boyfriend of a woman who was set to testify against Kelly on Wednesday afternoon. The trial was abruptly halted at noon on Wednesday by Judge Vincent Gaughan before the woman could take the stand to describe a threesome she allegedly had with Kelly and the girl.

CBS 2 reported exclusively Tuesday night that defense attorneys claim the woman was trying to extort money from Kelly with false claims about that sexual threesome and even sought to have her arrested.

The mystery prosecution witness reportedly will claim she got tens of thousands of dollars from Kelly’s people to return a tape of the threesome.

Damn, I miss Court TV.

New music off Here I Stand by Usher featuring Jermaine Dupri called “Chivalry”. It’s basically the same “I knocked up my jump off so I married her” mantra that Usher has been repeating here lately.

In more Usher news, mobile phone giant Sony Ericsson and Usher announced a new business partnership yesterday in NYC. The few fans Usher has left can choose between uploading exclusive ringtones, wallpapers and pictures to their phones or winning a chance to meet Usher on a video shoot, and getting VIP tickets for a concert.

Usher said he signed the 12 month deal with Sony Ericsson because: “Cellphones are the future. you can’t live life without ’em.” Wow, that’s deep.

Atlanta’s own Queen of Crunk Ciara pays homage to paparazzi and Vogueing in her HAWT new track “Click, Flash”. Unlike a certain beweaveble diva, Ciara at least appreciates the hard work we photographers put in. I love the beat and the chorus! CiCi even spits on this track:

    I got my Kodak instamatic,
    I grab it and I kick and flash
    They grab they camera phones
    whenever I be switching pass
    So ultra fabulous, my jeans my jeans
    They fit me crazy
    Them boys be yellin’ out
    You’re beautiful, baby!

As some of you may already know, loyal reader PYT_504 recently won the title of Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen at a pageant in Louisiana. Congrats to PYT! We so proud of you girl!

PYT got the chance to give a speech before the mayor. Her profile photo also won Most Photogenic in the pageant. According to PYT, the pageant honors the history of creole people and their culture in Louisiana.

I’ll let PYT give you all the details:

Well the pageant was for creoles in Louisiana. It was based upon knowledge and history within our culture. Also based upon the knowledge and history of the music we listen to here in Louisiana which is called ZYDECO. (zah-dee-co).

It wasnt based upon skin color, hair texture, nor eye color as some people think that is what creole people are supposed to look like. It was not a beauty contest. I don’t get down that mess. A festival will be held in my honor and also to honor the Spice and Music culture here in Louisiana. The city it will be held in is Opelousas, LA.

My official title is Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen. The other girl that was in the audience in the 1st pic is the Teen Queen and she is a white girl so having knowledge about the culture is not based on heritage. The festival will be held June 5th – June 8th!!! at our racetrack and casino.

I really don’t like this dude ’cause he’s an arrogant SOB. But I know most of you ladies like the men with the light eyes. So here’s a story on Gary Dourdan from CSI:

Gary Dourdan pleaded guilty to two of the felony possession charges against him and won’t have to serve any jail time.

The first charged against him, for having heroin, was dropped. He pleaded guilty to the possession of coke and ecstasy charges.

Dourdan will enter a treatment program and has to complete 16 classes. (Source)

Yesterday I wrote a post detailing a phenomenon that remains a mystery to most doctors. Over the years, many women have complained of a phantom cramping pain that begins about 10 minutes after they engage in sexual intercourse or oral sex. The cramps increase in intensity to the point where some women are immobilized with pain.

Yesterday I wasn’t clear in pointing out that the cramps are usually brought on by the female orgasm – not the physical act of having sex itself. When a female has an orgasm it produces the same minor uterine contractions as women in labor. Most women don’t notice the contractions at all after they have an orgasm.

After I published my post on post coital cramps yesterday, I received a handful of emails from loyal readers who experienced pain during sex due to a medical condition called endometriosis. Women who are diagnosed with endometriosis usually experience sharp pain during and after sex.

This is different from the post coital muscle cramps in the lower abdomen that otherwise healthy women have complained about for years.

For most women who experience post coital (after sex) cramping, there is no known cause or cure.

Let’s face it, Usher hasn’t exactly drawn rave reviews for his acting. But if Usher ever fails at his music career he might have a future as a comedian.

Okay, I know this is one too many Usher posts, but his CD dropped yesterday and, well, he’ll disappear from public view once the album bombs. So it all balances out in the long run.

Anyway, Ush made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live last week. But his comedy skit was cut because he misread the cue cards. In the skit, Usher gushed about his love for women much older than his 39-year-old wife Tameka. A video clip of that skit finally found its way to the Internets. I totally enjoyed this video. I laughed out loud more than a few times at his attempts at humor. I thought Usher was really funny – and cute….. did I say that? 😆
