Hey Sandra,

Here’s a pic of my nephew and I on Christmas and a picture of my mini-me and our pink Christmas tree.


These are my Christmas photos. The kids in the pics are my niece (in the white top), her boyfriend and their friend. No names necessary.

Thanks for sending in your Christmas pics! 🙂

Singer Prince was spotted at the Lakers game at the Staples center with a LSLH honey. The Lakers knocked off the reigning NBA champs the Boston Celtics 97-83.

Ice Cube and his family was spotted going to the Lakers game together at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on Christmas day. Ice is a good man. After all these years he’s still with his children’s mother.

Actor Denzel Washington also attended the game with his wife.

Mariah Carey and her hubby Nick Cannon and their cute puppy were spotted out shopping in Aspen, Colorado yesterday.

I hope you had a nice Christmas holiday with your families and friends. If you took pictures with your new camera phones, please send them in so I can post ’em.

I’ll start off with my pictures from last night’s little get together with the fam at my place. But I’m not posting mine if you don’t send in yours.

So let’s get it! 🙂

[EDITED] I forgot to add my email. Send your Christmas pics to sandra @ (remove the spaces).

Yesterday (yes, Christmas day) I received a call from a newspaper friend over in London (my birthplace), who informed me that rumors are running rampant over there about Beyonce and the new X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke.

It seems Beyonce is busy courting the extraordinarily beautiful Alex something fierce!

My friend said Bey has been burning up the phone lines calling Alex daily. And she said Bey rcently sent Alex on a shopping expedition to high end boutiques in London on her dime so Alex could buy clothes to wear with her on tour.

My source said Beyonce, 27, was sooo impressed with Alex that she has invited the 20-year-old to go on the road with her and record a single together!

According to The People newspaper, Alex couldn’t believe her ears when her idol told the show’s producer Simon Cowell, “I want to work with this lady. She is going to be a massive star.”

A source told The People newspaper:

“In the dressing room, Beyoncé told Alex she’d like to work with her in the future and suggested the possibility of recording a new single together. She also said she’d love Alex to take part in her UK tour, possibly as a support act, although nothing is set in stone yet.” (LINK)

They say Beyonce and Alex first laid eyes on each other during rehearsals for X Factor — and the two have been inseparable ever since!

Burke is the record holder for most singles sold in a 24-hour period in London. Her single “Hallelujah” sold 105,000 copies in one day. But she certainly isn’t an established artist. And nothing the 20-year-old has accomplished musically warrants all this attention that Bey is lavishing on her.

I hear Alex is so smitten with Bey that she has sworn off men. She recently told a fashion magazine that men were a waste of her time and space! (LINK)

Does any Beyonce Stan ever remember Bey showing THIS much interest in another woman?

Hey Sandra-

Happy Holidays! I’m writing to you because I know you have old school Fridays and I wanted to put in my request! I want to request “Kissing You” by Total! I completely forgot about this song until I heard it on the radio not long ago! I LOVED Total. This song brings me back to my younger teenage years when the love I gave was pure and innocent.

Diddy needs to reunite this group and forget about all these manufactured garbage he’s been putting out.


Legendary singer and actress Eartha Kitt passed away Christmas day from complications related to colon cancer. She was 81.

From HuffPo:

Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died, a family spokesman said. She was 81.

Andrew Freedman said Kitt, who was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, died Thursday in Connecticut of colon cancer.

Kitt, a self-proclaimed “sex kitten” famous for her catlike purr, was one of America’s most versatile performers, winning two Emmys and nabbing a third nomination. She also was nominated for several Tonys and two Grammys.

Her career spanned six decades, from her start as a dancer with the famed Katherine Dunham troupe to cabarets and acting and singing on stage, in movies and on television. She persevered through an unhappy childhood as a mixed-race daughter of the South and made headlines in the 1960s for denouncing the Vietnam War during a visit to the White House.

Through the years, Kitt remained a picture of vitality and attracted fans less than half her age even as she neared 80.

Hey Sandra. Merry Christmas. I HAD to let u know you have gotten some TOTALLY wrong info up. That song was recorded years ago for Joc’s album and we all collectively decided that WASN’T it. I don’t want my fans to be distracted by this. They know I’m hard at work at making the right music for me. They will hear that in my heart on recent duets like the one with me and my good friend Keyshia [Cole]. I would appreciate u telling them the truth like u usually do. Thanks Sandra and Merry Christmas.
