X Factor winner Alexandra Burke let the cat out of the bag in a recent interview with a fashion mag.

Burke told the Grazia magazine that men are a waste of time and space and she plans to stay single for at least a decade (LINK):

'They’re a waste of time, a waste of space! They’re only going to be good for me when I’m about 30 and thinking about kids. Music is my husband until then,' she tells the fashion magazine.

I guess this means some of the men in England are just as trifling as some of the brothas here in the states.

This all but proves rumors that the strikingly beautiful 20-year-old is a closet lesbun. It was easy to tell by her near orgasmic reaction to Beyonce when she came out onstage during the X Factor Finale.

Although I don't know what she sees in Bey, but to each her own.

Not that I'm in total agreement with Alex about men though. Men are good for some things. There are plenty of times when I couldn't have gotten those heavy boxes up the stairs if it wasn't for an able bodied man.

What a crazy week it's been for Barack Hussein Obama. First, TIME magazine unveils photos of him smoking a joint in college. Then the ultra liberal magazine honors Barack Hussein Obama by naming him man of the year.

And now one of TIME's writers totally disses him by calling Obama a bigot. And the guy isn't even moved into the White House yet.

Unfortunately this TIME magazine writer will likely lose his job for speaking the truth.

On the other hand, I like this song by Beyonce/ Sasha Fierce and I'm feeling that other song, "Hello". Loyal reader Iyonah turned me onto to that one (it's on her Myspace page).

Listening to Beyonce sing is like eating a five course meal and still feeling hungry. Her oversinging is annoying and distracting.

Twenty years from now that's what she'll be remembered for: oversinging and writhing around on the stage like she's having seizures.

Rapper Eve was spotted out and about shopping in L.A. with a black man by her side. And not just any black man. The brotha is male model material!

That's significant because Eve hasn't been seen in the company of a black man since producer Stevie J left her high and dry and went back to his baby mama.

Is Eve turning a new page? Are black men back in vogue now that a biracial man is in the White House?


The achingly beautiful Kendra G interviewed Bow Wow back in October and asked him point blank if he sired a spawn with a certain video ho.

The vehement denials begin at the 3:08 mark.

Is it possible that the video trollop wasn't pregnant at the time of the interview? Stranger things have happened.

What we do know for sure is that she was seen sashaying into Bow Wow's crib late one night. And she did have a pic of his tattooed chest in her personal profile on Twitter. Was that all a coincidence?

Thanks to loyal reader Erica for the audio link!

One of my favorite rap groups back in the day was Brand Nubian. Grand Puba, Sadat X and that foine Lord Jamar had it all going for them: swagger, sex appeal and a lyrical flow that was undeniable.

    Now a lot of people think this is easy as it looks
    Books and books of rhyme concepts and hooks
    Session to session to get thoughts manifested
    Stressin and stressin to hit the world with a blessin'
    Lot of people often ask, "Puba how you givin' back?"
    The way I give back is through the knowledge of my raps

Back then they called it conscious rap or message rap delivered by intelligent black brothas who had the skills to convert their every day existence into words and add a funky beat to make you nod your head while you think.

The thought-provoking lyrics of "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" was a precursor to the sad state of mindless rap music today:

    Don't let your gray matter pop
    Cause when you release the album
    If they don't cop, you gonna get dropped, so..

    Don't let it go your head, no!"
    Cause one single don't make you a hit
    Stay true to who you are,
    Don't never forget
    Keep your feet on solid ground,
    Cause what goes up, must come down, uhh

What would a historic occasion be without Rihanna performing?

It doesn't matter that she won't be performing at THE inauguration ball for the president. But then again, neither is Beyonce.

Our girl is set to perform in Washington D.C. at one of the many authorized inauguration balls on inauguration night.

Rihanna is still honored to be asked to perform on such a historic night when a biracial man will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States.

The "Umbrella" hitmaker will play for the Recording Industry Association of America's Presidential Inauguration Charity Ball, to benefit Feeding America.

Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America tells People.com, "We could not be happier that Rihanna will be performing at the Inauguration charity ball to benefit Feeding America.

"Rihanna's involvement will help raise awareness about the prevalence of hunger in America and help bring more aid to the 36 million Americans who do not always know where they will find their next meal." (Source)

My name is D'Andra. You posted one of my pics as "Flavor of Decatur" under the 1,000 toys for 1,000 kids event @ Justin's the other evening. I would just like to clarify that I was not actually @ the event. I was on my way to a CLUB event, and I remembered that my friend, Sabrina Montgomery, invited me to the event earlier. Although the event was over, I stopped and purchased toys for the children and dropped them off @ 12 am...

I didn't even go in. The camera man asked us to take pictures, and we opted to do that. There were some very nasty comments left about me being around children dressed that way, when in actuality, there were NO CHILDREN there. I was doing something from my heart, and it upsets me that this is the result of my doing that. I have children of my own, and I don't appreciate being portrayed in this manner (giving the kids lap dances???). Oh, and I don't live in Decatur!!!
