Socialite Christina Milian has a new man and it showed last night. The paps got pics of her and her new beau leaving her residence and they say she had that just tapped glow. It does look like he put it on her the way she's cheesing so hard.
We still don't know what Christina does or why she's relevant to the paps. But we LOVE those shoes!
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!!!
Even thought we don't agree much politically [sometimes I say to myself, "What is wrong with her arse"], I still enjoy your site. Mostly, I enjoy your grammar and word usage. Here is a photo of Lil' Kim and me. I used to work in radio but since my lay-off I've been filtering through photos getting my portfolio together. I'll be glad to share with you, be on the look out for more.
Keep up the good work.
Loath the POTUS if you must, but you can tell a lot about a man by the women he marries.

My name is Rose and I’m from Miami. These pictures were taken when I went to vote. They all showed up unexpected Beyonce is just as beautiful in person and she was very nice but I was most excited about meeting Mary J but her husband wasn’t trying to let her interact with the fans. Jay-z was also very nice and he didn’t look as ugly in person..lol

Anyways, my name is Shevicia, and I have been in Iraq for the past 2 1/2 years. Yesterday, Tichina Arnold paid us a visit, and I must say she was the sweetest person ever. She sung a beautiful song. She actually sounds better than most of these untalented artisst out today! I waved at her and she had her guard to walk her off stage to come take a picture with me. She was really nice and she smelled so good! She is very beautiful in person as well as on screen.

There's a ridiculous story making the rounds alleging that Michael Jackson is terminally ill and on his death bed. Supposedly he can barely speak, has internal bleeding and can't see out of one eye.
If Michael is so ill, why was he out shopping with his kids just last week in Los Angeles? (LINK)
The absurd claims are being made by the author of a Michael Jackson biography who wants to sell more than 20 copies of his book.
The national media is jumping all over this story as if it's legitimate. But even TMZ.com snickered at this story because it sounds so ludicrous. I'm sure if Michael was so gravely ill, his family would have announced that by now. We wouldn't have to wait for a book to come out to find out about his so-called terminal illness.
A scandal is brewing and it involves your president-elect Barack Hussein Obama.
The Internet is buzzing about new photos of Barack that were hidden in a safe deposit box until after the election.
It seems the photographer didn't want her photos of Barack to taint the election.
Now why would photos of Barack taint the election if they were purely innocent photos, you ask?
Well, a) because one of the photos shows Obama puffing on a joint, and b) because the photos show Obama wearing a wedding ring which proves that he was married as early as 1980 when the photos were taken.
Obama didn't meet his current wife Michelle until later.
We already know from Obama's book that he was involved an interracial relationship with a white woman. But that relationship didn't last because Obama had aspirations to be the president and he knew then that an interracial relationship wouldn't fly with most voters.
Not saying that voters are blatantly racist, but the climate that Barack was living in at the time certainly was conducive to that way of thinking.
Of course things are a lot different now than they were in 1980.
We do wonder why that woman has never come forward -- or any female that Obama dated, for that matter.
Surely a strapping young man like Obama had no problems attracting women?
Rihanna and her BFF Chris Brown took a little time out of their busy schedules to unwind at the Palais M Club in gay Paris. I guess RiRi doesn't think she has enough tattoos. By the way, do you know what the roman numerals on her left shoulder stand for? You'll never guess, so I'll help you. XI . IV . LXXXVI means 11.4.86. Maybe that's her birthday?

The legendary R&B group LaBelle reunited for a special performance at the Apollo over the weekend. Sarah Dash, Patti LaBelle and Nona Hendryx threw down like it was 1975 all over again! Wish I could have been there! Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Keyshia Cole turned it out during the "I Am Music" World Tour stop in Houston on Thursday. Keyshia has been playing to sold out houses everywhere. Her new album A Different Me will debut at #2 on the charts next week with an estimated 300-315K sold in the first week. Congrats to Keyshia! Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Keri Hilson was also on the bill along with the cockroach (Lil Wayne) and Gym Class Heroes. By the way, the rock group AC/DC replaced Lil Wayne at #1 for most albums sold in the country in 2008. Just thought I'd throw that in. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Bow Wow and his former mentor Jermaine Dupri shot the video for Bow Wow's "Roc The Mic" in L.A. over the weekend. Shad Moss must feel like a giant standing next to JD who seems to have shrunk here recently. Bow Weezy has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas season. As you know, Bow Wow is expecting a bundle of joy soon. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Rapper Ludacris and his daughter Karma attended his Ludacris Foundation's Holiday party at the Mount Vernon Boys Club in New York on Friday.

The worldwide search for an actress to play the role of the late and legendary Aaliyah is over.
Her name is Keshia Chante and I guess it helps that she slightly resembles Aaliyah and she's a so so R&B singer.
She's not drop dead gorgeous like Aaliyah was though.
Aaliyah was truly a one-of-a-kind superstar and can never be replaced. Keshia will play Aaliyah in a movie about the singer's life, career and untimely death. The movie is slated for release in 2009. (Source)
