Endgadget.com reports that a line 60-deep has formed outside the NYC flagship Apple store today. Was there a cool new gadget released that I didn't hear about? No, apparently these dummies have been standing on line for hours to be the first to purchase an iPhone.
Yes, I know we've been through this madness already. But this is a new 3G iPhone. Whatever that means.
I am proud to say I never succumbed to peer pressure to buy an overpriced iPhone because I am in complete control of my mental faculties and common sense.

Poor Usher must be losing it. The singer visited The Ellen Degeneres Show today and he seemed totally clueless to the fact that he and baby mama Tameka Foster have separated. Between showing Ellen his tired dance moves Usher said this about certain entities dissing his marriage:
"The opinion is that maybe this wife has come in and torn something down … she’s built it up even more now the foundation of who and what I am is even more. This stands for more what I want to see more of … I want to see more men standing with their women. I want to see more men be open and honest about where they are in life and that’s a lot of what I chose to talk about in my music not necessarily just about my relationship just about being vulnerable being honest … that’s the reality."

When NBA legend Magic Johnson announced he had contracted HIV, many fans began to mourn his imminent death. But Magic has astounded the medical community by outliving his life expectancy.
Today, Magic Johnson's HIV viral load is undetectable in his blood stream.
How did he do it? By fighting the infection naturally with a supplement called Natrol.
According to Naturally Yours, an organic natural health blog, Natrol is an extract from the stumps of larch trees, which grow in Central Europe, North America and parts of Russia.
Natrol, which is marketed in the states as My Defense, is used as dietary fiber in food and drinks. But according to the manufacturer, it contains an ingredient called ImmunEnhancer which the manufacturer claims "can improve the body's immune system".
Whether such claims can be proven remains to be seen. While there is no cure for HIV, Magic says the supplement has improved his quality of life and he swears by it.
MissXpose reports that MTV canceled the opening date as well as other major dates on the Making of the Band Tour featuring Danity Kane and Day 26. Supposedly the dates were canceled due to "scheduling conflicts". But I'm guessing poor ticket sales is the real culprit.
The Making of the Band tour didn’t even begin and already drama has surfaced. The tour which features Bad Boy acts Danity Kane. Day26, Donnie Klang and Cheri Dennis, was originally going to kick off May 18 in Lake Buena Vista, Fl. The show was cancelled along with two other shows and now the tour will begin ten days later at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. READ MORE...
Firs of all the paper is in Roswell - enuff said. the Daily Kos says it better than I can. Thanks to SpaceyG for the tip!:
The accompanying article is about hate groups in the area who are upset about Senator Obama’s candidacy and concerns the local authorities have about possible violent acts from these groups. The article itself is not offensive, but the cover is beyond the pale. As indicated by the article, there are some serious racists in the area, and Obama’s candidacy has brought out the worst in a lot of people. The last thing we need is a newspaper to suggest assassination with an incendiary cover such as this.
This is one of my favorite photos of Rodney "Lil' Rocko" Hill III. I'm posting it because today is Lil' Rocko's third birthday. He looks so cute posed in his daddy's cap and scarf. Happy Birthday Lil' Rocko!
Legendary singer Tina Turner gave Beyoncé a wicked left hook and put her down for the count during a British interview yesterday. Tina told reporters that while Beyoncé is "elegant" she will never match her for raw talent and Bey will never be "rock n' roll".
"She was one of the ones that were sitting in front of her little television, her little self looking at the big screen when I was Tina in the Ike and Tina Turner days and she took from all the stars at that time.
"Diana Ross influenced her, I influenced her. What I like about her is that she knows what she is doing, she really did her homework and decided to stay elegant.
"She's not rock 'n' roll - she's totally elegant. Unless you're rock 'n' roll from the heart you can't mimic that. The stance, the movements, it has to come from the inside."
Video model Dollicia Bryan made the double cover of KING magazine's 3rd Annual Wet Issue. Reality show "star" Tila Tequila graces the other cover. Bow Wow must be so proud of his woman! If you don't know who Dollicia Bryan is, click here.
Okay, I'm feeling this song mainly because Solange aka Sol-Angel isn't straining her vocals on this track.
On her other tracks off her upcoming CD Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dream, Solange tries too hard and it sounds forced. That comes from years of Sol listening to her sister Beyoncé do it the wrong way.
And to think I was ready to give this CD coaster status when I heard she was in the studio a few months back.
The 13th Annual Bermuda Music Festival boasts a hawt lineup this year! The headliner is Alicia Keys who will share the stage with Beyoncé and her sister Solange. Playing second fiddle must feel strange to Bey, but we're sure she will adjust quickly!

Other celebs in the lineup includes Steve Harvey, Lyfe Jennings, The Whispers, UB40 and Aaron Neville. Tickets go on sale at 5AM on Thursday. You can book your tickets online here or call 1-800 Bermuda.

The child custody battle between Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee just got a little more interesting - at least to me.
According to That Bitch, Russell has threatened to reveal Kimora's past lesbian sexcapades if she doesn't play nice. But these idle threats have been made before. My regular readers know of at least two women Kimora allegedly "kept" in upscale Manhattan apartments while she was married. But are there more women? Does anyone care at this point?
Awww, here's a cute pic of Baby Daniel showing his daddy he can count to two. Just kidding y'all. You know Sandra loves the kids! Baby D aka Juelz, was spotted at courtside with his dad Big D at a basketball game at Texas Southern University on Saturday . Mommy is Beyoncé's sister Solange.
Tommy Lee and Ludacris invited fellow minded environmentalists to explore water conservation in Las Vegas by staging a communal shower. As part of the new Planet Green series, BATTLEGROUND EARTH, Tommy Lee and Ludacris travel across the country to raise awareness about the essentials of being eco-friendly. They are trying to set the Guinness World Record for the 'Worlds Largest Group Shower' in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Tommy Lee, Ludacris and their "eco-rages", invited hundreds to shower with a friend and save water.
I'm all for saving the planet, but seriously, doesn't Luda look like a fish out of water?
Rapper Bun B attended a private listening party for his new CD "II Trill" with his wife Queenie and grown kids at a Louis Vuitton store in Houston yesterday. Notice the lack of fake jewelry around his neck? I learned yesterday from a celebrity that rappers have "copies" of their jewelry made for when they are slumming. That's why 90% of the sh*t looks fake. If I have to wear something fake I'd rather not wear it at all. Bun B's real name is Bernard Freeman, by the way.
Usher taped a promo for MTV in NYC on Sunday and his wife Tameka Foster Raymond was in attendance. I'm concerned that Usher is still hiding his baby son under blankets. Can someone explain that rationale to me? And where are the rest of Tameka's children? I take that back: I see one of Tameka's sons in the trailer. I knew she was a good mommy.
Of course they are referring to the nigger who shall not be named on this website. The headline could have read "It's Still Called "N*****," but they added that "N****s" at the end. I can't see as I blame TMZ for their racist headline. Isn't this what that nigger wanted all along: dialogue?
