If you watched Sean Combs VH1 series “I Want to Work for Diddy,” then you know how anal he can be when it comes to detail.
After the historic presidential election, Sean Combs decided to turn his 40th birthday celebration into a dual celebration for the new POTUS Barack Obama.
But according to the New York Post’s PageSix, the party promoter-turned music mogul was seeing red after a young decorator failed to decorate Club Mansion to his exact specifications.
“He was given a budget of $7,000 and 12 hours to create an all-white decor, including 1,000 white roses, blow-ups (large pictures) of Diddy and Barack Obama, and $2,000 (of white fabric).
“Diddy declared it dreadful and went into a major hissy fit, screaming, ‘Show me the receipts!’ and ‘Get the money back!’ to his assistant. “Then he began ripping the fabric off the walls saying he hated it. He berated the poor young decorator to the point that the guy gave back $2,000 of the money he had spent.” (Source)
How much do you want to bet the “young decorator” was his “assistant” Mike Barber and Sean’s hissy fit was conveniently taped for a follow-up tv series?
Nick Cannon accompanied his wife Mariah to her appearance on The X-Factor in London, England over the weekend. X-Factor is the original American Idol. I’m really starting to like this couple together. Nick has that adorable whipped puppy dog look on his face that is so endearing. And how happy are we to see Nick bringing that S-Curl look back again? It’s about time. We are so tired of seeing men in braids and dreadlocks. It’s time for CHANGE. 🙂
Beyonce doing her best Leona Lewis impression while accepting an award at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo last night. We’re impressed with her crimped lacefront. At least she gave up that ridiculous camel hump.
Remember I told you a while back that one of my loyal readers spotted Kim Kardashian in the Christian Louboutin Boutique in NYC? Well, Kim was snapped out & about wearing one of her purchases, the Alti pumps with the outrageously sexy 6-inch heels. Oh, and I think Beyonce is also sporting the same shoe, but I’m not too sure. Maybe one of my CL experts can confirm.
Singer Usher appear on a TRL-type program called Much TV in Toronto, Canada over the weekend. As you know, Usher is in the midst of a concert tour to promote his latest album.
Rihanna out & about in Sydney, Australia on Saturday. Cute!
Jay Z didn’t accompany his wife Beyonce to Europe this weekend. He was spotted court side at the Pistons game where he cheered on the Pistons’ Allen Iverson. The crowd greeting the newest Pistons player was so loud that they drowned out the PA announcer. Of course, the Pistons lost because Iverson expends all his energy in the nightclubs and has nothing left for the court.
This is supposedly Beyonce’s second single off the much-anticipated album “I Am”. This track is not on the 1st disc that leaked all over the Internets last week. It’s on the 2nd disc — the Deluxe edition which features additional bonus tracks.
Does that mean Bey’s 2nd single is a bonus track because there are no hits on this album?
I must say I love the track! It has a soulful 80s texture and feel to it, but then Beyonce starts to sing and she kills it — and I don’t mean that in a good way.
Shouts to Zedi over at Dimewars.com for always hooking us up!
Usher has apparently realized his mistakes and plans to come back “harder” next year by “potentially” working with producer/singer/songwriter Ne-Yo.
While Usher’s latest studio effort eventually went platinum, the CD took the circuitous route rather than shipping platinum as the classic “Confessions” did.
Some seem to think that Usher’s arrogance and his insistence on forcing his personal life upon his fans is what ultimately led to all but his hard core fans abandoning him.
“I was one of the first people to tell Usher personally that I… didn’t think he was focused on the album, on ‘Here I Stand,'” said Ne-Yo, whose influence is all over Usher’s current tour. “I don’t think that his focus was in the right place.”
After eating a large slice of humble pie, Usher sat down to talk with MTV about his current “Ladies Only” tour which has yet to sell out despite playing in smaller venues than he is accustomed to.
After taking ill during a concert in Sydney, Australia last week, Rihanna returned to the stage the very next night fully recovered from what ailed her.
She even did her best Peter Pan impression flying over the ecstatic audience strapped to a harness.
We wonder if all that swinging and spinning in the air is what made Rihanna dizzy the night before? It certainly made us dizzy just watching her.
Rihanna’s BFF Chris Brown joined her onstage for a rendition of “Cinderella”. Did y’all see how nervous he looked after Rihanna ran off stage the night before? They look so cute together. Black love is so beautiful! 🙂
I’m glad someone else is finally putting it out there besides me. By the way, just so you know, Donald Trump donated an entire block of rooms at the elegant Chicago Trump Towers for two weeks for Jennifer Hudson and her family members.
Other members of Chicago pitched in and made sure Jennifer Hudson and her sister Julia didn’t need or want for anything while they were in mourning:
So I wasn’t going to write about this but it is really really bugging me. Especially when people are calling my phone saying how nice it was of Beyonce to come to the funeral and show her support. And I have to sit back and hold everything I wanna say inside. But I can’t do it no more.
Beyonce did not come to the funeral nor did she call, text, send a card or hell send a damn email. If there are millions of people who are leaving Jennifer and Julia and myself messages and sending there prayers and condolences and these people don’t even know them why couldn’t she? Every singer that Jennifer admires and had been a role model for her growing up even until now has called, from Aretha to Shirley Murdock to even present day singers like Chrisette Michelle.
And y’all know how much Jennifer loves Beyonce and she couldn’t even have her assistant call or nothing. But yet her camp is allowing her to receive credit for coming to the funeral and being there for Jennifer and her family. Bullshit! This just pisses me off. Once again thanks to everyone who has be there for us. And sorry if i offended any of Beyonce fans by writing this but if i just couldn’t keep sitting back and reading articles and emails and having my phone ring about how nice it was of Beyonce to come out !
